Gimme That Brow!



Let me first say that I'm sorry for my hiatus here, computer drama out the wazoo! But I'm back and inspired and I want to post DAILY! As usual, every post will be up at 12:00pm EST. Now, my posts are getting a slight revamp. I see that I try more than I can finish so the weekdays will be full of first impressions and the weekend will be a recap of sorts, I hope you're all as excited about this new chapter in my blogging life as I am!

On to the first impression...

So I love brows, but can't be bothered to really touch mine as they are naturally full and a pain to groom. That being said, I don't fill in my brows, but some hairs need to be put in their place. I've tried clear mascara and a tinted brow gel, so I'm upgrading my brow game after I played the field for a bit. I love to try out drugstore products first as it's an inexpensive way to get a feel for a new product in my routine before I go all out on something I don't know how to use yet. Now that I'm a brow gel pro, it was time to give my good friend Benefit a go. (haha that rhymed...) 

My first immediate thoughts are that the tube is so tiny for the packaging, but equally tiny is the brush! IT'S SO CUTE! I just worry it might go quicker, which is more money out of my pocket...
But the brush being small is my favorite part! It's easier to get all the little hairs in the "sparse" areas of my brows. The only complaint I have so far is that the suction thingy isn't very good and I feel as if there is way too much gel on that brush for one go, so I tend to scrape off the excess, but it's not a big deal. 

As always, stay tuned to see if any of these opinions change...

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…
