12 Pans of Christmas: Update 1

It’s that time of year, the time for my first 12 Pans of Christmas update. I LOVE the items in this project and have been really enjoying using them. I don’t wear a lot of makeup to work – generally I use the Physicians Formula butter highlighter when I go to work because I love having a glimmer but this is definitely the product I’ve used the most. I also don’t have specific goals for these items. Mostly, I would just like to get use out of them and maybe finish up my Gosh foundation.

The base products

All my base products have the same story, you cannot tell how much I’ve used. The Andalou Naturals CC Cream is the easiest to tell the progress. I think I’m close to being done but there is so much product in the tube. As you can tell by the tube it’s quite well loved. Same with the Gosh foundation, I cannot tell how much I’ve used but I have been using this mixed in with the Andalous Naturals cc cream so it is definitely feeling lighter in weight. This foundation is alright. I do like that it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin or make my skin react, but it’s probably my oldest foundation (about a year and a bit old) so I’d like to see this done by the end of the project. The collection lasting perfect concealer – again I can’t really tell how much I’ve used but I LOVE this concealer. I swear if any of you UK people want to send me a lifetime supply after I run out of all my other concealers please do let me know. The Too Faced sculpting multi use concealer. This concealer will last me forever, but my opinion has not changed. I don’t think this is worth the money for the pure reason that my drugstore concealers perform the same way if not better. It’s all just brand preference! I like Too faced as a brand so I’m happy to work my way through this.

The eye products

My Naked heat has no goal – really I just want to put a dent in my most used shades. The shade sauced is one that I used almost every day. There is an evident dip. I have really been enjoying this palette and want to do a three looks one palette type of post. This is the perfect rusty warm toned palette that suits all my needs. The bite beauty multistick, I haven’t made a whole lot of progress on this one – it has been used but I can tell its drying out a bit since the packaging broke and is no longer magnetic. Hopefully I can use this a bit more.

The Highlighters

These are all showing good progress – in my humble opinion anyways. The Nudestix nudies all over face stick in illuminaughty is a really interesting highlighter, in a good way! It doesn’t completely dry down but also doesn’t go away so you get that glossy sheen all day long. As you can see – the progress isn’t significant but it’s there. I used this the other day under my makeup and it worked really well for an inner glow. The Physicians formula butter highlighter. There is definitely more of a dip in this, but I have really been enjoying it…like a lot. I always buy highlighters on a buy, try, review basis. Okay maybe not all of the time but this one was a highlighter I bought with my bff so we’d having matching ones and then I only used it  twice. I have been LOVING this. It’s a beautiful creamy, satin formula and goes with so many looks. The NARS Forte De France highlighter, this is also been going well. I still love this, you can’t really see any progress but this is quite tightly packed so I don’t see myself hitting pan anytime soon.

The random three products

Wet n wild oaks on you contour bronze stick – this is nice. It’s not my favourite but I have been enjoying it. I haven’t really used it a lot this past month but want to start using it more as it is a nice shade and blends out really nicely. The Hourglass ambient lighting palette in surreal light. These are kind of domed marble products but I can tell I’ve used quite a lot and the pans are becoming more flat. Finally, the Burt’s Bees lipstick in Scarlet soaked – I had a feeling this wouldn’t show much progress. I was right – only looks a bit shorter because of the angle but my goal is to get it down to nearer to the notch that’s already in the lip stick.

Do you have any projects on the go? How are they going?


Project Pan Roulette: Round 2

Hello all! I am excited to announce my next project pan roulette. This is a huge collaborative project with instagrammers, bloggers and youtubers! Check out Rebecca Morgan and Alexy who started this! The project consists of 6 categories that are randomly picked by you on random.org. This project technically started Nov 5th and I will end March 5th.

The categories I got were: a product you always buy on sale, something in your favourite shade, a drugstore product, an old favourite, a product you’ve already hit pan on, a collab item.

A product you always buy on sale

maybelline mascara

I usually buy mascara’s on sale, unless its an essence mascara, I tend to buy all my mascaras on sale. I bought the Maybelline lash sensational luscious full fan effect mascara on sale. I don’t mind this mascara at all. My only gripe it is difficult to get off but does give the lashes a beautiful effect.

Something in your favourite shade

Body shop bronze stick

DSCF2166

This was hard because I love a lot of colours. My favourite makeup is bronze. I love bronze shades – bronzer, bronze eye shadow, bronzy blushes. I decided to pick The Body Shop cream eye colour stick in Cyprus Bronze. I do really like this shade a lot but when I bought this I was on the hunt for a dupe for the maybelline bad to the bronze but its not. This is a darker bronze and isn’t as creamy as the Maybelline. I want to try to use this up or at least put a dent in it.

A drugstore product

PF Blush

DSCF2170

I found this category quite broad so I decided to pick a blush. I chose the Physicians Formula butter blush in vintage rouge. I really like the formula of this and the flush it gives to the skin. My goal for this product is to make a bit of a dent but it’s unrealistic for me to hit pan on it.

An old favourite

burts bees lipstickDSCF2174

I chose Burt’s Bees Suede Splash. I really love this lipstick and have mentioned it so many times on this blog. I thought that I would use this for this project as it overlaps nicely with the products I chose for my 12 Pans of Christmas (stay tuned). 

A product you already hit pan

elf bronzer

DSCF2172

It took me awhile to think of something that wasn’t already in my year long project. But I remembered I hit pan on my ELF Golden Bronzer. I forgot how great this bronzer is. It’s a glowy bronzer and gives such a nice hint of colour and looks great on the eyes as well.

A collab product

colourpop corneilousDSCF2168

I don’t own many collab products but I thought I would chose the colourpop super shock shadow in Cornelious which was a Kathleenlights collaboration. It is a beautiful matte warm caramel shade. This looks really nice as a base for any warm eye shadow look or any even cool eye shadow look. This is a great warm crease shade and makes a beautiful all over lid shade.

What are you trying to pan?

13 by Halloween Project Pan finale

Ah yes the 13 by Halloween project pan finale! I’m happy to say this has been a successful project. I want to say in advance I took these pictures in darker lighting since it was a rainy day and gets dark early, but I try to capture the progress. I have also switched computers and still need to get Photoshop so alas the newest photos might appear a bit more cooler toned than previous updates. In any case, I hope you enjoy this post!

Joe fresh tinted lip balm

Update 2

I’m so proud of the progress I’ve made on this lip balm. You can tell I have used up quite a bit of this and will probably put it away for now until the spring rolls around. ALSO update this brand will still be in Loblaws and Superstores just not shoppersdrugmart! 

Nudestix Tinted blur stick

nudestix-tinted-blur-stick

Update 1

nudestix-blur-stick-update-

Update 2

Nudestix Tinted blur stick

I really used this a lot and it’s so close to being done. While this isn’t going to be in another project I think I can get this done quite quickly as its usually in my rotation of bases

Nudestix Bondi Bae

nudestix-bondie-bae

update 1

nudestix-bondi-bae-update-2

update 2

Nudestix Bondi Bae

I feel like this one was the slowest to use up simply because the tone is so red for my fair skin and as well I sometimes feel like if I wear a more yellow toned foundation this can be a bit too red and look like a bit too much for me. BUT it is a beautiful cream bronzer and I like using it in combination with the nudestix tinted blur stick.

Cover Fx loose setting powder

I haven’t blogged in awhile so please forgive my photo quality 

This product wasn’t as used this month because its a bit colder and i find this can look drying under the eyes. I’m happy with the progress on this but again it wasn’t a product I was expecting to use up.

Becca Champagne pop

Ah the sad story of how this came to its look now. So I hit pan and was super proud – then I went to highlight as usual and it cracked and shattered. I salvaged what I could. I will keep using it, however I’m sure it will be used up by a few uses.

Garnier moisturizer

garnier-moistuirzer-update-

garnier moisturizer

I’ve really went through this quite quickly. It’s not done yet as it’s a really thick balm. However, I have really enjoyed this. Would I repurchase ones I finish it? No just because I in terms of hydration this isn’t the best but it does sooth my skin.

Lush Feeling younger skin tint

Lush-feeling-Younger-Skin-T

Lush Feeling younger

I did get though a bit more of this but I have to say – I will continue mixing this with my morning moisturizer. It\s nice but can tend to be for lack of a better term, stiff. I don’t know but its not like other glowing primers I have or liquid highlighters – which is why I tend to really mix it with my moisturizer.

Colourpop Kathleenlights Super Shock shadow

colourpop-eyeshadow

colourpop

This has little progress – I just haven’t been using it a whole lot which sucks. It is a beautiful shadow but I’ve just been into different things!

Lush Karma solid perfume. I somehow lost this so no update here.

First Aid Beauty Body shop Revlon

Revlon Youth FX concealerThis is definitely nearing the end of its life. It feels very light and it used to be a bit heavier so I’d say I hit my goal of wanting to put a dent in it.  First Aid Beauty Tinted moisturizer. You can’t really tell the progress of this but it is nearly done. If its a bit darker and you hold it up to the light you can see the progress. The body shop lip and cheek tint. I think this is definitely close to actually being finished. It feels a lot lighter in weight and I’m hoping to finish this sometime in the next remaining months of 2018 or in the first two month of 2019.

What are you panning next?


Products on the chopping block

I have seen Andrea Matillano do this video a few times, and she was talking about products she had on the chopping block and I thought what a great idea. I have so many impulse, drugstore purchases that I just don’t reach for anymore or products that I thought were great and then discovered better alternatives. I thought I would give these products one last test for two weeks to see if they really have value in my collection. I would also like to say, these products (mostly not the Burt’s Bees foundation) are good products, but for me it’s like when you have been wearing more inexpensive running clothes, then you discover lululemon pants and just can’t go back. If these are your favourite items yay! More for you! But for me these are products I’m on the fence about and just don’t know if I will keep.

Flat lay chopping block
When putting this post together the first two  are two foundations. The Wet n wild photo focus foundation and the Burt’s Bees Goodness Glows foundation. The Wet n Wild foundation is okay, but it smells like paint thinner and while it looks gorgeous when you first put it on, it doesn’t wear nicely throughout the day. Again, we all know I reviewed the Burt’s Bees foundation – I’m going to give it another go and have since before writing this post, but again I just can’t make this work. My experience with this foundation was it clung to weird patches on my skin that aren’t normally dry.

foundation

Next are some more wet n wild products. I am by no means trying to slam this brand – they are a great affordable drugstore brand and some of the best products are from the brand. Their cream blushes in rose and peach. I originally bought to test out for a post i never ended up doing so they’ve gotten lost in my collection. I found that these disappeared as soon as I put them on so alas I’ll give these another try, if I use these in combination with a powder blush they do last well, but again if I’m going to use a cream blush I don’t want to set it.  The ELF baked bronzer. Frankly, I should just declutter this because it doesn’t show up on my skin. I’ve scraped off the top and it still doesn’t show up at all. I will try it again but alas it might be time for it to go.

The ELF Baked highlighter in blushed gems. This is a beautiful highlighter – but I have more that I like better than this. This was one of my first highlighters and at the time I really liked it but I just never reach for it anymore. I have worn it for the past few days and it is a beautiful more subtle highlighter which is sometimes what I want on certain days. I will update you in two weeks if this is staying or going.

open cheek products.png

The Rimmel contour face palette in Golden Sands. This is actually a beautiful palette but it is very powdery and has that classic drugstore powder smell. The bronzer in this palette is really nice which is what I will try to use over the course of this two week test.  I have such an affinity for face palettes, with all the bases covered but  I find myself using this one sporadically. I have a few other face palettes I love but since this one has pretty delicate powders I can see myself possibly adding this to a project pan in the near future and attempt to hit pan on the blush and bronzer shades!

cheek products on chopping block

The other face palette is the ELF contouring blush and bronzer duo in Fiji matte. This was $3 at Loblaws so I bought it on impulse. I don’t know why because I literally never wear matte blushes and the bronzer isn’t the best formula wise but I will test it a few times to see if I want to keep it around.

wet n wild eye shadow.png

Finally, the Wet n Wild comfort zone palette. This is the old one, there is a new one now with a new formula, but I bought this when I first started watching Youtube in 2016 and of course, it is beautiful but after trying more and more eye shadows I find myself not reaching for it. I tried to pan it in my first project pan roulette and didn’t have much luck progress wise. I probably should just declutter it right now because I haven’t used it since that project. I might try and use it again but I swear, even with a primer these eye shadows fade quite quickly on me even with an eye primer.

What products are you on the fence about?

Project Pan 13 by Halloween update 2

Hello all! If you are following this project with other bloggers and YouTubers then you will see they have already posted their updates earlier this month. But I felt that since the finale is Oct 31, I wanted to put this up today so I could actually have a bit more progress to show. I didn’t finish any products this month like I did last update but I made some significant progress.

Joe Fresh Tinted Lip Balm in Mango

Joe-Fresh-Lip-balm

Update 1

joe-fresh-lip-balm-update-2

Update 2

I am so excited about the progress on this product! I have a significant dip in this and I think I can actually get this at least half this size by Halloween. I keep this at my desk so I reapply it throughout the day so that is how I’ve been able to get such good progress.

Nudestix Tinted Blur stick

nudestix-tinted-blur-stick

Update 1

nudestix-blur-stick-update-

Update 2

I am so happy with my progress on this! I used this at least 2-3 days a week (since I’m also testing other foundations and such) and it has gone down significantly from last update as you can see in the comparison photos!

Nudestix Bondi Bae

nudestix-bondie-bae

update 1

nudestix-bondi-bae-update-2

update 2

I am happy with my progress on this but I didn’t use it as much as I was planning. I really like this cream bronzer but sometimes it can be a bit too red toned so I usually pair it with its brand counter part versus my tinted moisturizer than can pull orange then it’s just a whole situation.

Cover Fx Loose setting powder

coverfx-powder

update 1

Cover-fx-update-2

update 2

I thought I would have more progress but unfortunately since moving back to Northern Ontario I really haven’t been using a lot of this one and I was really hoping to have it done by Halloween. I might start using it to set from my crease to my brow bone and continue using as ever so slight amount under my eyes.

Becca Champagne Pop

becca

update 1

becca-champagne-pop-update-

update 2

I actually have quite significant progress on this. While I haven’t hit pan on it I can see a little dip which is exciting! I think to finish up what would be my second highlighter ever would be amazing.

Garnier 3 in 1 rose moisturizer

garnier-moistuirzer-update-

This is going quite well. I use this every single night as my last step and slather it on. To be quite honest, while this feel luxurious I don’t know how much it actually moisturizes. I feel like my Lush celestial does a much better job and my skin the next morning actually feels moisturized so when I’m done this one I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing.

Lush Feeling Younger Skin Tint

Lush-feeling-Younger-Skin-T

I haven’t been using this as a makeup product but I have been using it mixed in with my morning moisturizer and have quite been liking it. You can see that it has a significant dip and I think I can get even more use this coming month because of the colder weather rolling in I am gonna want even more glow then I like now.

Colourpop Kathleenlights

 

 

colourpop-eyeshadow

Update 2 ( I didn’t take a clear picture in my first update so alas there is not one)

I don’t think these shadows ever end. I see the people on YouTube with such good pan and here I am barely making a dent! Granted I have only been using this 1-2 times a week but I was hoping to see some pan but I don’t think that will happen.

Lush Karma Solid Perfume

karma-solid-perfume-update-

Again I have not been using but I’ve decided to keep it at my desk to apply throughout the day. I don’t think I will hit my goal of make a good dent but hopefully if I have it at my desk I’ll be able to use it a lot more.

Revlon Youth Fx concealer

update-2-revlon-concealer

I feel like this is a lot lighter in weight then it was at the beginning of the project so I’m confident I will finish it by halloween. Pro tip – if you like to see how much product you’ve used don’t buy this for it has opaque packaging

The First aid Beauty tinted moisturizer

This doesn’t have its own picture because I’ve been bad at marking it off. But it feels like its nearing the end when I squeeze it. The next product again has opaque packaging but I can feel that it is getting quite empty and it feels so much lighter then when I started the project.

The body shop lip and cheek tint

the-body-shop-update-2

Again, this has opaque packaging so I can’t really tell how much I’ve used but I can tell that it is a lot lighter in weight and less is starting to come out on the little doe foot applicator.

Products I’ve used up in this project

Nudestix concealer

The ordinary hyaluronic acid and B5

Project Pan Update the Third

Hi all! So as you know I am doing a year long project pan. I never specified the number because I’m still new to this project pan world but I wanted to add some items this month because I’ve actually finished a few items and realized most people to 10 items for 2018 or more so I decided to add a few items for the tail end of 2018.

NYX-Dark-Circle-Corrector

PF-Butter-Bronzer
First things that have shown some progress. The Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer is FINALLY showing more wear and tear. I use this probably 2-3 times a week but I have also been fancying it as a good crease shade then throwing a nice shiny shade on the middle of lid. Second, my NYX dark circle corrector. Fam, I really like this. I feel like I bought it and didn’t really care for it because I kept switching between products BUT this actually is so great! I love that NYX is affordable and has such a variety of shades in their line, as a bonus its cruelty free and I am actually excited to use this up.

My colourpop highlighter in Lunch Money. I really like this highlighter, and the pan has definitely expanded but it just isn’t doing it for me like it used to. Don’t get me wrong, this is beautiful but I’ve been more into my Becca champagne pop and my Anastasia liquid highlighter that this has taken a bit of back seat.

Colourpop-Lunch-Money

100%-Pure-Lip-Caramel
My Covergirl Nudes. Okay so I’ve decided I’m going to try and use as much of this palette as I can and declutter it in 2019. I love the shades, I love how neutral the colour story is because at heart I love a boring brown, but frankly it gets a bit boring. So the way I have been using this is in my brows and the light shade as a brow highlight. My 100% pure lip caramel in truffle. This is actually very well used and I can start to see that I’m scraping the side. My only gripe is that the packaging is kind of breaking and I will take an insta story on my instagram and save it to my highlights under blog because it was expensive so I just want to showcase what can happen to it.

covergirl-nudes-palette

I have also decided to roll in 4 products. Probably a bit ambitious but you know what, I’m living on the edge. I am rolling in two eye shadow products. The Colourpop Supernova eye shadow in Running in Orbits (I think this shade might be discontinued cause I can no longer find it online). This is a beautiful taupe brown (gee so original in my arsenal) and I love how glittery and beautiful it looks. Next I am rolling in the Essence eyeshadow stick (rip these are discontinued also because I can’t find it online) in She’s got the Mauve. I have really been enjoying lining my lashes with brown or mauve so I thought this was a great thing to carry me into fall. Since I finished my concealer in my 13 by Halloween I thought I would add one to this project. I am going to try and use up the Wet n Wild photo focus concealer because it is really good. I do like how it sits under the eyes but I’m hoping with my project I can form a better opinion. Finally my old favourite, interview lipstick Milani Nude Creme. I LOVE this shade. It’s the perfect mix of pink and brown for my fair skin and I love the formula. It smells yummy but it is going on 3 years old so I want to see how much I can use before 2019.

Are you panning anything? How’s it going?


13 By Halloween: Update 1

Ah the 13 by Halloween project pan update. I am so excited to update everyone on my progress. I will say some products were really difficult to tell the progress since in the intro I forgot to take pictures showing the beginning of a few items (i.e the progress of my cream products and my lip products) but because I recently got a tripod I can actually start taking better progress pics which is super exciting.

I am so excited I finished two things in this project (and the crowd goes wild). I finished my Nudestix concealer, I thought I could get more uses but the last part of the concealer pushed into the wood so alas it is officially done. The second thing I finished was the Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid + B5. I got this done pretty quickly because when I use these types of serums I used a full pipette every night to ensure maximum hydration. My Garnier moisturizer has shown quite a bit of progress. I don’t know how much I love this but it is nice to wear at night and smells really good (not that I should be loving scents in skincare but alas here we are) so once  I finish it I will give a full review.

Garnier-moisturizer

The-ordinary

FAB-tinted-moisturizer

My Lush feeling younger highlight has gone down quite a bit because I use it to mix into my First Aid Beauty Tinted moisturizer or my normal morning moisturizer which gives it a nice glow. I will say I’m not a fan of this product as a highlighter because I find it doesn’t really sink into the skin like other liquid highlighters. The Kathleenlights supershock eye shadow doesn’t seemingly have much progress, but I have been using this pretty much everyday that I’ve been wearing makeup but I think it really is the never ending product.  My Coverfx loose powder has also been rocking and rolling, I drew a line on it so you could really tell the progress and how much I’ve used. 

nudestix-bondie-bae

becca

coverfx-powder

My three cream products. Nudestix bondie bae hasn’t shown much progress because of the way I use it. I usually put my makeup sponge on top of the stick and then dab it on the all the bronzer areas so it doesn’t show much progress but trust, I use this daily. My Joe Fresh Tinted Lip balm has been in use everyday yet it doesn’t show much progress. I think it’s the never ending product really, hopefully I can make more of a dent in it my Halloween. Becca Champagne Pop, ya’ll I have definitely used it every. Single. Day, even if it’s just inner corn shimmer I used it every day. It is nicely packed so the progress doesn’t look as extensive.  My solid perfume by lush in Karma. I have used this quite often but not as often as I was hoping to but it is more of a fall scent so I’m hoping I’ll get more use of it in the coming two months

The-Body-Shop-lip-and-cheek

Joe-Fresh-Lip-balm

nudestix-tinted-blur-stick

The Revlon Youth Fx concealer was in the project because I knew I would finish the Nudestix concealer. I can’t really tell how much I’ve used but I am hoping that if I use this every day I can use it up by Halloween. . My Nudestix Tinted Blur stick is also going well, I haven’t used this a lot this month but I know I can use a lot of it up so I will be making more of an effort to use it. The Body Shop Lip and cheek tint feels a lot lighter then it did at the beginning of the project. Since it is a liquid product you can feel the weightiness of it change which is exciting.

What have you been trying to use up?

13 by Halloween

So I have been recently seeing some videos by Too Much Tash and Kelly Gooch doing a 13 by Halloween project pan collab. Okay, so I’m not cool enough to collab with them but I thought this was a great idea because I want to continue using up and really focus on products I love. I have chosen 13 products to attempt to hit pan or use up by October 31.

I think I will do a monthly update since these products are already on my rotation in my everyday makeup so I thought it made sense to put them in this project including a few skincare products.

flatlay-open-products

First up is the base products. Now I am notorious for starting one product and then never finishing, hence this project pan so I chose quite a few. First is the CoverFX Perfect Setting Powder  I have this for about a year and half now and it is a really good powder, it’s talc free so I find compared to lush emotional brilliance it doesn’t quite have the same setting power but it does the trick for the under the eye and I’d like to attempt to get it used up. Second is my newly introduced First Aid Beauty tinted moisturizer – this is such a fab product – pardon the pun. It’s dewy, light coverage and exactly what I was looking for in a tinted moisturizer. Since I have been using this religiously I decided to put it in the project to see if I can challenge myself to put a real dent in it. Next we have two concealers, the Nudestix concealer – this concealer is so close to being finished!! I do like this concealer a lot, but am undecided if I want to repurchase it. I have quite a few other concealers to get through before a repurchase comes along but I would like to get this one done because I’m just so close. The other is the Revlon YouthFX concealer. Since my Nudestix one is so close that it will be nice to have this one to focus on and use in conjunction with the Nudestix. Another Nudestix product I’ve chosen is the Tinted Blur stick – this might be a bit ambitious but I really enjoy this and for days when the tinted moisturizer is too much for the hot weather I know I will gravitate towards this.

joe-fresh-mango

becca-highlight

Now for the cheek products, I chose  Nudestix Nudies All Over Fave colour in bondie bae – again I have been on a cream product kick so I decided to put nudestix bondi bae in this project. It’s creamy, blendable and naturally warms up my fair skin without being overpowering. For a blush product I kept it tame and chose one, the Body Shop lip and cheek tint in the shade dusty roseI really love the body shop’s cheek products and have been living for the dewy effect this tint leaves on my skin. I want to make a real dent in this one and see if I can use quite a bit up. I chose two highlighters which might be a bit ambitious of me but I don’t really have a set goal in mind I just want to get lots of use out of these two. First is  Becca champagne pop. I know this isn’t something I will be hitting my pan on anytime soon but it’s something I have been using non stop and don’t see myself putting down for awhile. The next highlighter I’m choosing to ‘pan’ is the Lush feeling younger skin tint is two highlight products too bold of a choice for this project? Possibly but I like to live on the edge. This is beautiful under foundation, mixed with moisturizer, on the collie bones it really has so many uses that I am hoping to use it up

Lips and eyes. First is a the Joe fresh mango lip balmI don’t love putting lip products in projects because it just never goes well. However this is one that I have been using quite a lot, enough to track my progress on it! For eyes I chose one single shadow from Colourpop the shade Kathleenlights. I rather like this eyeshadow and because it’s going to be transitioning from summer to fall during this project I know I can make a dent in it (how many times can I say dent). It’s a really beautiful gold bronze and I’m excited to use it alot.

Onto the skincare. First up the Garnier 3 in 1 rose moisturizerThis is an interesting product because it claims to be a mask, day cream and night cream which I feel is a bit of a gimmick. But this is a nice cream and I would love to use up during the course of the project so I can finally try the summer Fridays jet lag mask! I’m also trying to use up my ordinary products and thought I would throw something in this project that I’m already consistent with which is The Ordinary hylaronic acid and b5 .This product does boot moisturizer in my skin if I use it consistently but I want to get the Glossier Super Bounce next so I am going to make a concerted effort to use this on the daily.

Finally a perfume. I really love the Karma scent from Lush, now they have a body lotion which is super exciting, so I want to put a dent in the Karma solid perfume. I never discuss perfume but I do really enjoy it and use perfume pretty much every day or night. This is an easy one to use and while the scent doesn’t last all day I love putting it on in the morning because it gives you that little boost of energy.
