#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 Remover Towelettes: I've always heard makeup wipes are bad for you skin...unless you truly use them as a makeup remover and then wash your face and apply the rest of your nightly skincare routine. So, I never saw the need for a makeup wipe if my cleanser already did the job. Once I tried these, they weren't that bad. Apparently not the best as they are a bit greasy so you really want to wash your face afterword. But, they do a nice job of removing makeup, which is their purpose. I bought a twin pack so you will see me mention these again in the future but I can say that they are popular among the makeup shoppers, so that's always a good sign, right?

Benefit the Porefessional Matte Rescue (.25 oz): I loveeee this primer. Definitely keeps the skin matte. My nose was a bit shiny at the end of the day but I didn't mind. I always recommend this primer for anyone who wants to control shine and I see it picking up popularity. Don't sleep on this product.

Bare Minerals Original Mineral Veil (Sample/travel size): I previously tried the tinted mineral veil and although the original is translucent, the formula is the same and I really like to pair it with the pore filling/matte primers as the finish is just pure perfection and my face feels so silky soft. My only complaint, as most of my complaints are, is the packaging. I can't deal with loose powders. Too messy. They need to make a compact version of this.

Revlon All in One Mascara (Red Lid): This was an impulse buy and since it claims to do all in one, I was all for it as who doesn't want longer and fuller lashes in one step at an affordable price? In reality, can't say I'm the biggest fan. It's a plastic wand, as opposed to real bristles. it's also small and oval and very bizarre. It's also a really wet formula and you have to be slow and steady to not clump your lashes. That being said, I've got questions about my lashes, which I always take as a sign of a good mascara. Won't repurchase only because the wand isn't my cup of tea.

Buxom Full On Lip Polish in Katie (travel/half size): I've raved on and on about this lip gloss. Deffo one of my favorites. I do have to say that it is very sticky and does get stuck into everything. A bit annoying wearing this at the beach. This time around, I did an experiment, mainly out of curiosity of how long it takes to use up. The other reason was to actually use up my lip products and not just swatch them till it's gone instead of downsizing from the start. Whatever the reason, I've tried to apply this when appropriate (or when I remembered that nothing was on my lips). I don't know the exact amount of uses in this tube, but I do know that it took roughly three months to use up.

Not as many things used up this month, but whenever I notice that, suddenly all my current products get used up the next month. Guess I'll have to wait and see.

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 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…
