How Savage!


I love me some Urban lipstick, so why not try their gloss?
Way back when I got my Gwen palette and some other Urban bits, I spent enough to get a gift with purchase, and got a bag with mascara and gloss, the gloss being the High Color Lipgloss in Savage.
Now, because I'm impulsive and want to stick to the latest things, I put trying this out on the back-burner. It also seemed very bold for me. Bold lips are something I always hope to be something I don't have to think about, but for now, I have to carefully plan my look so I still look like me when I wear them. Savage is the brightest pink I have now, so it was even more intimidating as pinks are a hard one for me as I need brown/purple undertones to best suit me because the more Barbie pink shades just look off.
I was surprised twice with this color once I had it on my lips. When first applied, it was in my poorly lit room and it looked pretty natural looking, which was a shock as it was supposed to be highly pigmented as the name suggests, but then I thought when is a lipgloss ever that pigmented? But then I stepped into the beloved bathroom light. This stuff was true to the color in the tube. But strangely enough, it wasn't as bad as I pictured. I'm actually in love with the color now, which is something I thought would never happen. I also love how thick the formula is for two reasons: change of pace of others in my collection, and it means extra hydration and lasting power.

I look forward to using this color as much as I can while it's still summer!

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…
