Where Have I Been?

Hello people of the internet who stumbled across my blog. If you didn't know, I'm Lexi and I am a makeup junkie. I cant get enough of it, so working at a makeup store was the best and worst thing that happened to me. I am also a creature of habit and I am simultaneously a hoarder and an anti-hoarder? I love to use up things and I'm constantly cleaning and clearing out and reorganizing. Add that to the makeup obsession and ever growing collection, it leaves with a person who loves getting all the makeup she can cause it's beautiful and she's just gotta try it all..but she also has to use it all so nothing gets left behind and everything gets properly used up so she gives fair opinions about it.
From about Christmas to Summer, I collected quite a bit, and tried a lot! Then I got into a rut, where I didn't want to keep trying everything cause I had enough to rotate and nothing was being used up. So I switched up my blog posts and then got into a deeper rut when I felt repetitive and uninspired.
Like I said, I'm just a girl who loves her makeup. So that obsession has not stopped me from collecting makeup and trying to use things up. 
I'm going to try something new. I find reviews hard, because I love 99% of the things I have because I always find a way to make it work. I would haul, but then it can get tricky with how I got the makeup I have. Talking about what's new/trendy can also be repetitive as well. I have a new idea to still incorporate all that, and not get into a rut for a long time.  I'm going to basically have a diary posted on here on my makeup thoughts. At the first of the month, I'll make a list of all the things I'm gonna start the month using. Each day after that, I'm going to have mini "reviews" or updates really, on what I think of a specific product in my rotation. I tend to hate something then love it, or love something and continue loving it, but you can see my progression of how I feel about a product as time goes on. If I use anything up or add more things to my collection, it'll be posted at the end of the month. And if I have a strong opinion or changed my mind on how I'm using a specific product, I'll put a p.s. at the bottom of that day's post. 
I hope that made sense, but the new blog revival will start November 1st! I hope you're as excited as I am!

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…
