#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 with Peter Pan, but with hitting the pan of your makeup products, to again promote a decluttering of sorts. I basically already did this for years, without knowing that other people actually do this as well. 

Here's my plan for my take on #ProjectPan. On the first of each month (besides this one), I'll make a list of products in my rotation that are close to being used up, so I will make a point to try to finish them. By the nature of the products, skincare things and lip products will be the majority on the list, but I have been noticing that some of my face makeup is more than half way used up. Also, since I've managed to collect a tonne of mascara, regardless if it's used up or not (my collection ranges from samples to deluxe sample to travel to full sized), I will be getting rid of a mascara each month, at least until I have 4 left (since mascara lasts 3 months and it's a reasonable amount, right?). Also, with each post, I'll say which things I've used up and give a mini review of them. 

After a lengthy explanation, here's the things I want to use up in February:
Neutrogena Deep Clean Shine Control Daily Scrub
Benefit Porefessional Primer Travel Size (I think regardless if it's 100% used up, it's gonna haveta go)
Benefit Fake Up Concealer Sample
Maybelline BB Cream (this is a reach)
Maybelline Fit Me Powder (I've hit pan on this, but I want to use it up)
It Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream Sample
Ulta Nectarine Rose Body Lotion
Urban Decay Primer Potion Sample (the anti-aging one)
Ulta Volumizing Mascara Sample
MAC Eyeliner in Lord It Up (it's so tiny, it's gonna have to go anyway)
Bare Minerals Sample Sized Lipgloss in Trail Blazer
Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick in Bittersweet
Elf Hypershine Lipgloss in a peachy shade (it was in a set and has no name...)
Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment (maybe a reach)

#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!
Neutrogena Makeup Re…

#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…

#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…
