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?

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…
