#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

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.
L'Oreal True Match Foundation: This was given to me as …

#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…
