#ProjectPan April 2017

At this point I've nearly given up on predicting what I will end up finishing in a month, but I'll still try. As always, it's going to be filled with skin care and lip products, but they are the most important! 

What I used up in March:
L'Oreal Pure Clay Mask (The Red One): Amazing. Gentle enough to use after using an exfoliating cleanser. Makes my skin super soft. Only downside is that it's a bit messy. 
Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow Primer (Sample): The sample definitely had more than one use it in, but very glowy. Looks like you highlighted your entire face. Better for the dry-skinned people. 
Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation in Beige (Sample): When you build it up enough, and with the right brush, this can be a pretty full coverage foundation. Also a very dewy look. 
Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment: This stuff was my holy grail for the longest time. The medicated part actually helps heal your lips and is perfect after a long day of using matte lipsticks. Also perfect for the winter. 
Ulta Mineral Lip Gloss in Sheer Opal: Hydrating. Slightly sticky. This was more opaque than you'd think. Besides color choice, I would probably buy again. 
Nyx Intense Butter Gloss in Black Cherry Tart: Very Sticky. A bit patchy. Lasts a few hours. again, wrong color but I'd try another intense butter gloss. 
Urban Decay Naked Lipgloss in Sesso: Loveeeeeee. Super hydrating. Not sticky at all. Beautiful color. Lasts a few hours. Would buy again. 
Anastasia Beverly Hills Lipgloss in Venom: Super dark. Very opaque. Intense color. Not so hydrating. A bit sticky. Lasts a few hours. Would buy again but in a different color. 
Bare Minerals Pop of Passion Lipstick in Pink Passion: Fairly hydrating. Buildable color. lasts a few hours. Would try it again if I got a different color.
Urban Decay Vintage Vice Lipstick in Smog: Love the cream formulation. Color is too brown for my liking. Layers beautifully. Lasts a few hours. Would totally buy another cream finish but in a different color. 
Nyx Matte Lipstick in Pure Red: Matte but doesn't feel matte. Layers nicely. Too red for my liking, but it lasts a while. Would buy again in a different color. 
Essence Lipstick in Nude Love: Creamy. Layerable. Buildable color. A little light for my liking, but I would definitely buy this formulation again. 
Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer: I like the coverage. Definitely brightening. Big fan of the twist up packaging. Only thing is that it settles the slightest bit, and that annoys me. Probably won't buy again. 
Urban Decay Perversion Mascara: LOVE. Definitely volumizing. Lengthening too. All good things, all good things. Only downside is that it's a bit hard to take off... would totally buy again though. 

What I'd like to use up in April:
It Cosmetics CC Cream (Sample)
Benefit Porefessional Primer (Travel Size)
Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation (Sample)
Bare Minerals Mineral Veil (Travel Size)
MAC Eyeliner in Lord it Up
Ulta Mascara 
Cetaphil Moisturizer
Ulta Body Lotion

#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 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…
