Today's post is about what primer I'm using this month. Benefit's Porefessional is a cult favorite in the beauty world and I've had a pleasure applying this for the good portion of a year now. 

The bad: As it is silicone based, all it really does is fill in pores, which I don't mind. Also, because of the silicone, it can be slippery, so try and keep this in your T-zone, or things can disappear, but even on your nose, use it sparingly. I find that applying it on the sides and the excess over my bridge works nicely. 

The Good: It really does what it says on the tin. I also like the slippery feeling, as I feel like it truly is filling my pores. 

Overall, give this a shot! Like I've been saying lately, trial/travel sized things are always great to dip your feet in the water about a new product. Benefit always has sets with the Porefessional in it, so it's a win win in my eyes.

#ProjectPan May 2017

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…

#ProjectPan July 2017

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 February 2017

I think I found a new blogging inspiration, which is perfect for me. I love collecting makeup because "it's limited edition" or "it was on sale" or any other excuse in the book to try new makeup. But in all honesty, I just like to try things and keep note of the things I prefer. Since I work in a makeup store, the products are way too tempting not to get. 
Besides my makeup addiction, I have a weird obsession to make sure everything I use (makeup, clothes, paper, you name it), it totally used up. I also have rotations of my makeup so besides everything being used up, it's also equally used. These are all little tiny details that actually are perfect for this different side of the beauty world that I've become obsessed with. 
Decluttering videos, especially lipstick ones, fascinate me. They inspire me to use up my collection to get down to a reasonable amount. Some of these videos came with updates of this thing called #ProjectPan, which has nothing to do …
