Music Monday: Know-It-All (Deluxe)

So I've been in an Alessia Cara, Ariana Grande and Daya kick lately and decided to give my first reaction to Alessia Cara's album! I know it's been out for a while but oh well...

Seventeen: Remember when I said that Ulta plays songs that I think are from an artist I know but I'm not completely sure? This is one of those songs. It's a great tune that instantly wakes me up. It's not a super upbeat song, but it's enough with the oh's to put me in a great mood. 

Here: I've loved this song since it first came out. It's my anthem. I relate to this song so much. Besides the lyrics being on point, I'm just blown away by Alessia's ability to sing that much in a single breath! I struggle to keep up when I sing along!

Outlaws: I think this is actually another song I've heard at work. I like it! It almost has that do wop feel to it!

I'm Yours: Have I heard all these songs at work? It's possible..either that or all her songs sound the same (which I'm not complaining, but they do). I want a slow song...

Four Pink Walls: She sounds more like in Here and the beat reminds me of another song that I can't think of but I like it! it's more chill of a song. 

Wild Things: I love this song. It inspired me to review this album to begin with. It's a very chill vibe but also a subtle anthem like Here was. 

Stone: Ohhh this is a bit different! Much slower and showcases her voice. I like it!

Overdose: If Here and Seventeen had a baby it would be this song! Slow on the verses and upbeat for the chorus, a mix that is one of my favorites. 

Stars: Another slow one. It's a cute love song!

Scars To Your Beautiful: A song of self love. One of those that I probably won't appreciate until I'm feeling down, but a great pick me up!

Here( 2:00 AM version): A stripped down version of Here and it's so beautiful!

River of Tears: A sad song lyrically. But the music is slightly more upbeat. It seems to be a song that speaks of crying it out and starting a new. I like it!

My Song: I looove the message of this song! It's like a "I'm gonna do what I want, don't want to follow the Hollywood norms" kinda song. It's perf!

Me oh my am I determined to get my lip products under control. It's basically me decluttering at this point rather than actually using, but these lip products I've had for a while, so I don't feel as bad. Also, to sum up the lip products, unless they stand out to me as not wearing well (fading unevenly, clumping oddly, etc), or the color doesn't suit me, I generally love/make the color work. 
I've also used up quite a few skin care products that I wasn't expecting to finish.
Things I've Used Up:
Joico Color Infuse Red Shampoo: I bloody love this stuff. I claim this is the thing that makes my hair stay red as long as it does. Not only does it have color-lasting powers, but it cleans your hair and actually makes it feel clean. Huge plus in my book. I'm still undecided how long I want to keep my red hair, but if I ever decide to keep it, or go back to red, this is the first thing I'm gonna pick up.
Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream: This was a sample that I foun…

#ProjectPan July 2017

As my stash somehow is larger than ever, despite my makeup ban efforts, I still only buy when I get those Ulta "free gift with any purchase" emails that sucker me in each time. I'm going to promise myself that unless I need a spare necessary product that I'm nearly out of, when I get those emails, I'll stick to racking up my lip balm collection.
What I've used up over the past month: Joico Color Extend Shampoo: At first, I didn't mind this shampoo. But after the glaze on my hair washed out, I started to hate this shampoo. It just doesn't feel like my hair is clean at the roots. Apparently this is a common problem with color friendly shampoo, so I'm not mad about it, but now that it's done, I'm excited to try other shampoos that will make my hair feel like I got it done at the salon after each wash. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Shampoo (Sample): OH EM GEE. My hair finally felt like my hair again. I see people buy any and all Living Proof prod…

#ProjectPan June 2017

This month has been fairly tame with finishing things. I'm finding that I'm finally reaching the end of some of my powders and foundations. I'm also doing great with decluttering the lip collection. There's also a bit of face things in there, so hopefully a little something for everyone. 
Products I've Used Up: Dermalogica Pre-Cleanse (30 mL): This is truly life changing. Well, not really, but it took off my makeup exceptionally well and I would happily repurchase this again.  Charlotte Tilbury Magic Night Cream (1.5 mL): I liked how it made my skin feel, but if you over do it, it can still feel tacky in the morning, which wasn't fun. I'm gonna stick with my samples of serums and creams for now.  Maybelline Dream Pure BB: I'm not too fussed with foundations, so I got on with this fairly well. It's a light coverage, but with the right brush, it could be a medium coverage. It lasts a good while. My only complaint is that towards the end, it separated a bi…
