I am obsessed with lip products. I'm on the hunt for the best chapstick to keep my chapped lips at bay. I want the most wearable matte lip. Lip glosses are usually okay but you get my point. I tend to be experimental/with the season at work and at home I try and clear out (use up) the things I can't bring into work or they are so old that they gotta go...

For work this month, I've been using the Rimmel 1000 Kisses lip liner in Wine and I alternate between 4 lipsticks: elf Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick in Wine, Nars Matte Lip Pencil in Damned, Wet n' Wild Lipstick in Wine, and Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Lead the Way. 

At home, I first used the travel size of the Ulta matte lip cream in Striking, and now I'm onto the travel size of Benefit's Lollitint. Also, the Rimmel liner is super drying. 

The Bad: elf's stick doesn't fade the nicest, so it's not optimal for being worn for long amount of time. Also, the Ulta matte lip cream didn't fully become matte until hours later or when the bottle started to run out. 

The Good: I always love Nars' matte lip pencils as they never feel matte on my lips. The Rimmel liner does act as a great base and helps the colors fade seamlessly. Whenever I wear the Wet n' Wild color, I always get questions, so I think that's a good thing! So far, I've been enjoying applying Lollitint as it doesn't get absorbed by my lips as soon as it's applied. 

Overall, it's been a good time experimenting with lips this month, I don't have many complaints about anything.

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…
