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.

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…
