#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 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 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…
