Your "Perfect" Blush Shade


I'm a sucker for most things beauty related, but when it's supposed to be your perfect skin match, I'm more cautious. The idea sounds amazing, but does it really work? Well when I come across a Tarte blush that supposed to be your perfect shade, I gave it a shot since I'm terrible with blush shades.

As far as packaging goes, it's adorable! The Energy Skintuitive Cheek Stain speaks for itself with pretty mixings of purple and pink with a twist up stick and the color is white, until your skin touches it.

As far as how well this matched my skin..well I didn't give it that fair of a shot (surprise, surprise). I've just been to the shore and I'm the tannest I've ever been in a long time. Add to the mix that I nearly forgot to apply this during my makeup routine, so the color probably isn't as true, which is odd since it's supposed to be the perfect shade... I am used to very slight blush colors. I've fallen in love with the rose gold type of blushes and I'm used to the very pigmented babydoll pink ones. This is like a step further. This shade was bright dark pink. I guess I'm just so used to a slight flush that it shocked me, but with blending, it wasn't as bad. Also the staying power isn't terrible, but putting a powder over it would make it last longer.

So far, this is a meh for me. I need to use it more and see how much/little needs to be applied and when the best time for application is. I'll make it work somehow...

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…
