The Lipstick That's Worth the Splurge



I always wanted to try a YSL lip product. I've heard nothing but good things about them. But me actually buying one on a whim? Well, that's totally something I would do...

Leave it to me to feel compelled to buy at least a lip thing whenever I walk into a makeup store. After buying tons of lippys for my friend for her birthday, she wanted to head into Sephora to grab her birthday gift. Then she proceded to look at lipsticks to get. She'd been eyeing up the one YSL lipstick since before my birthday (November) and I was telling her that she had to get it. Meanwhile, I stumble upon the words "sheer" and "moisture". I will try all lip products and lust over matte formulas (they're the one type of lip product I can resist) but as soon as I see anything that promises moisture, I'm all over it. I feel like I can never solve my dry lips but that just means I can continue my hunt for the best lip product (or that's what I tell myself). Either way, I'm swatching the YSL Sheer Candy lipsticks. My favorite number is 12 so I always  gravitate toward that product first, and lo and behold it's the prettiest pink I ever did see. I kept swatching it on my hand, rub it in, fall in love with how soft it made my skin feel, swatch other colors, and then go back to 12 (Which is called Tasty Raspberry). I knew I couldn't resist and tried to get my best friend and my friend who worked at Sephora to convince me I wasn't crazy for buying a $30 lipstick. It happened to be on a day where anything was 10% off and that was enough convincing for me. 

I already said that the color is a beautiful baby pink and it's so glossy you'd think it's a gloss. I actually get on with the smell, which is like a peachy scent. It also wears beautifully and lasts a good 3-4 hours before a reapply. Also the packaging is beyond gorg and I feel like a million bucks whenever I wear it. Definitely worth every penny.

Monthly Empties | April 2018

This month I'm trying hard to just let things go, especially if I've had it for a long time. I feel like I went through a lot of skin care, which is typical, but I also feel like I went through my fair share of makeup bits as well! I always feel like I don't use things up, until it's the last week of the month and suddenly I'm running out of everything. Here's the things I've used up over the past month...

Lush Lip Scrub: I am not really a lip scrub person, only because I feel that lip balm is just fine. Plus, I'm super lazy/forgetful with extra steps, so I definitely neglected trying to use this lip scrub. Technically a lot is still there, but it's expired and solid as a rock at this point. I've never used a lip scrub before, but this was nice! It exfoliated and tasted great and that's all I really care about. I probably won't repurchase this as I won't use it enough in time.

#ProjectPan September 2017

This past month, I've said goodbye to my red hair and reintroduced to the blonde life. I've also been surprised by using up various face products...
Joico Color Infuse Red Conditioner: THIS IS THE SOLE REASON MY HAIR HAD SUCH A NICE COPPERY RED HUE. Sorry for the caps locks but this stuff is the best ever if you have dyed your hair any shade of red. Even though towards the end of the month, the orangey bits shone through in the light, my hair had an overall redness to it that had everyone is awe. I swear it makes the red last longer or at least tone it beautifully. If I ever go red again, this will be the first thing I buy.
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Conditioner ( .33 oz): I'm obsessed with this conditioner as well. Total splurge if I ever bought the full size but oh my I feel like my hair was thanking me for treating it with this conditioner. I truly had a perfect hair day after using this. My hair felt oh so soft and I couldn't have been happier!

#ProjectPan October 2017

Of course as soon as I barely run out of anything last month, this month I'm running out of everything!
Products I've Used Up:

Zoella Beauty Ginger Cream: I got this during my winter vacation in London, where I went on a Superdrug hunt for any Zoella Beauty product I could get my hands on. This lotion is part of the winter collection, and was part of a set. I am not the pickiest with lotions, but I compare all to my holy grail, Bath & Body Works lotions. With this, a little went a long way. It wasn't a thick formula, and yet it was a crazy amount of moisturizing goodness in such a small amount. Super impressed. The scent itself was a bit too sweet at times, but the smell is definitely just like a gingerbread cookie. 

Batiste Original Dry Shampoo: LOVE the original! Probably my holy grail dry shampoo, even better than the Not Your Mother's one. Sucks up all the oil. No white residue. All good things, all good things...
Living Proof Restore Perfecting Spray (0.5 oz): I p…
