The Blue Lipstick I Needed To Own


My manager's reaction to me wanting to buy this lipstick was, "You know Lexi is a changed person because she's buying blue lipstick." Me and bold lipstick don't go hand and hand. I lust over it and I own quite a few dark shades, but I just don't wear it as much as I'd like. I also am a sucker for new releases and working in a makeup store doesn't help. 

The other day, I saw NYX had a new selection of their Liquid Suede lipsticks and the colors were so eye-catching, none of the employees could stop themselves from swatching them. Litereally, me and my friends just swatch the colors when the line is down. The first color that drew my eye was the navy blue color. I knew right then I needed to have it. Sophie Foster has been wearing bold/blue lipstick recently and seeing this navy blue/grey lip color just fueled my need to get it. I think I even dreamed about the color. Foul Mouth is my new obsession. I also got the shade Oh, Put It on, which is a dark purple. 

The formula is matte, but when you wear it, it doesn't feel matte until about 3-4 hours later. That is a HUGE plus as the only other true matte formula that I've gotten along with was the Nars lip pencils and NYX is less that half that price. I keep trying to think of places to wear my new favorite lipstick, but so far I've got work, at home, and possibly Halloween. Any other suggestions?

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…
