I See a Theme of "B"

Firstly, apologies for this being up later than usual, I've just been busy with work. But on to the haul that seems to have a sort of a "B" theme...


I had been eyeing up this Rosebud balm probably since the first week I started working at Ulta. It's in the grab and go section and I'm a sucker for lip balms. I had held off buying it simply because I already have 4 balms that I need to try, but when my friend strongly recommended I buy it because she loves it, how could I refuse?


I had all of 5 seconds to look at this Buxom lip gloss set before I decided I needed it in my life. I really love sets/kits/small packaged things and so when it's at such an amazing deal, the only thing stopping me for a second was the brightness of one gloss. But as you can see, I caved as my one manager suggester that I only need to put on a sheer coat and it'll look fine.


And to keep with the Buxom gloss theme, I received a sample size of their Dolly gloss. So beautiful, such a me shade.


This product had been in the back of my mind for a few months now, and I never thought to look for it/get it until I really looked at the Butter London section and also decided that day that I needed to take better care of my nails. It's the Sheer Wisdom tinted nail BB cream and it's totally worth it. I'm converting everyone to it because we all need it in our lives.


I believe I got this Benetint sample with a Benefit purchase. I already have Lolitint, so this is a nice addition to my growing collection!

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…

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…
