Lip Plumping Gloss???

I don't buy into the whole lip plumping thing because I'm fine with my lip size, but that won't stop me from trying out beautiful shades.
Since I'm trying to put myself on a makeup ban of sorts (no new makeup unless it's a freebie or a really need a spare)... I only had the opportunity to try out the Buxom Full On Lip Polish because it was a sample that I picked out. It's the shade Dolly and it's described as the perfect mauve color. Which is actually perfect as I'm totally into purples lately and mauves are my best friend since it's a great transition.
But again, I've never tried anything lip plumping, I've been told stories of stinging pain so that's what I expected when I first tried this on. It couldn't have been farther from the truth (at least for me). Of course, before I even noticed the color of the gloss, I noticed the plumping sensation. It's minty, a strong mint, which I'm in love with, and it's very cooling, which is another plus. I got a little funny tingly sensation after a bit, but it's not bad at all.
As for color, it's sheer, but with layering or just being generous with the gloss, it will be more like the color in the tube. That's another plus all around for me because when I try out "scary" bold colors, I can just dip my feet in the water before I get comfortable to go all in.

As for actually lip plumping, I don't notice any difference so it might be slightly plumping. Either way, I love it so far, as I got ahead of myself and already bought the summer set of glosses.

And as always, I will update you on any changed opinions as time goes on...

#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 May 2017

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…
