Project pan update the second

Ah the second update is upon us. I am so excited to share my progress with you! I also wanted to clarify the project pan concept. Basically, there are items I want to use up but that doesn’t mean I am not going to add items into makeup wardrobe while participating in a project pan. It just means I’m going to be more thoughtful then I used to when purchasing products. For example, I have added a few things since starting but not nearly as much as I last year. For eyeshadow palettes, I only want to add 4 into my collection in 2018 and I already have added 3 so far and love them! Also forgive me, I forgot to photograph my 100% Pure lip caramel in truffle but it is definitely being used up as I can see in the tube more from the outside. This lives in my purse and work bag and I used it everyday.

The thing I am most excited about: I finished my Pur disappearing act concealer which you may have seen in my previous empties post. I am so excited this honestly took a year to finish. Granted, I switched between this and other concealers but when I started the project I focused on it. In honour of this, I am rolling in two concealers, my Wet n Wild photo focus one (found this at superstore for all the Canadians out there) and my Nudestix concealer pencil in light 2 which admittedly is almost done but I am gonna focus on it.

Colourpop Highlighter Lunch moneyButter-bronzer

The next thing I am excited about: I fricken hit pan on the butter bronzer! I can’t believe it I have had this for about two years. Granted, I did switch between bronzers last year but I really wanted to focus on this one because I have had it for so long. Fun fact: this was my very first bronzer ever, other than those Revlon shimmer strip things which technically was my first one but this was my first ever REAL bronzer. I know, crazy. I got it summer 2016, courtesy of my dad and I finally hit pan. I actually jumped for joy when this happened.

My Colourpop highlighter. Again, got this in 2016 with my BFF. I used it on and off but at first was really confused on how to us it. Now I just used my fingers and really blend it in. I think the pan has slightly expanded compared to the last update which is exciting because it is getting older and I want to use it up!

Covergirl Nudes Palette

The Covergirl Nudes. Frankly, I am getting a bit bored with this palette and honestly haven’t really been using as much as I could. I definitely have expanded the pans quite a bit compared to the last update but I am really excited to use this up finally because I love me a good nude palette, but once I got the Anastasia palette and of course my Urban Decay Naked heat  that I got in December, my Covergirl palette has taken a back. I also find myself  gravitating towards those two palettes or my Colourpop singles. But I’m glad this is in my project because otherwise I might just neglect it all together!

NYX Dark Circle corrector

My NYX dark circle corrector. Omg, I have actually used so much of this and I’m so happy! It kind of broke as I started using it more but it is really effective, when I am looking tired I used this, the Nudestix and then the wet n wild concealer (I know its a bit extra but I love the combination) and I look super awake.

Are you doing a project pan? Let me know your progress!

Things I liked and Did in April

First how is May already? I can’t believe it. I don’t have all my grades back yet but alas I am done my undergrad! Of course, throughout April I may (see what I did there) have found some gems that I wanted to share in things I liked and did. I really didn’t do anything so these are some of the products I was loving!

 One of my 2018 goals was to find a great skincare regime and I think I have just found my favourite toner of life. The Thayers lavender toner is AMAZING. I use it every morning on a cotton pad (reusable of course) and press it into my skin. It smells wonderful and my skin loves it. Plus it’s more mid range so it’s on the affordable side and you can find it in a range of places, including Marshalls or Winners, Nutrition house and well.ca.

 Something not so affordable I have been loving is is the new highlighter I bought during the sale. This is the NARS Forte De France highlighter. Excuse me while I pretend I’m the Anna Edit and wear this with my Topshop jeans and polka dot button down, basically twins. It’s beautiful! It’s very glossy and shiny and I can’t get enough it! The powder itself feels very lux and it lasts all day. It does slightly emphasize texture but to be quite honest so do all my other highlighters.

This was a bit of a surprise for me, the Body Shop Fresh Nude foundation. I am on the hunt for a good foundation that I can wear when I’m feeling foundation for the day. It is hard to find one that is cleanish ingredient wise  and that is affordable (which surprise surprise this one has some pesky ingredients that I’m not too keen on but I don’t wear it everyday so alas the hunt will continue once I use up this one). But it does have a beautiful satin finish and doesn’t require setting which I love and its great for the summer. It’s a great shade match and thus far I’m liking it! 

Can I be anymore more repetitive but the Vinoperfect Glycolic Brightening Essence by Caudalie Again, a purchase from the Sephora sale. I’ll be damned but this has changed my skin. I wouldn’t say I have “bad” or “blemished” skin but I do have a bit of texture on my cheeks and t zone and find my skin feeling congested and this really brightens and clears my skin! The thing I don’t like: why is it expensive? The thing I like: the brand story, the smell, the clean ingredients and the entire brand philosophy.

A fashion fave, the Topshop raw hem jeans. By golly, I want to get a few more pairs of the Jamie jeans eventually because all Topshop jeans I have are extremely flattering and it just feels good to wear flattering jeans! They are pricey but I think they are great quality. I feel myself graduating from

The Lush Karma solid perfume. I love this scent so much, it smells exactly like a lush store. It has a fresh but warm smell, but is still a summer scent that I can get down with. I never buy scents and this is expensive in the spray form. I got the solid but by golly once I’m out of this I may just buy the full size!

 

 

 


Colourpop haul and review

It was a cold morning of me drinking coffee and gandering the colourpop website and alas, I made a wee bit of an order. This was about a month and a half ago, and I’m realizing this is two hauls in a row (oops) but this is more of a review then a haul! Let me start by saying, I enjoy most colourpop products except their liquid lipsticks. I love their supershock eyeshadows, they are a unique formula that you can’t find in any other brand. I decided to order a few of those and some lippies!

second-option-flatlay

I got four supershock eyeshadows, and one liquid shadow. Ugh. I LOVE the formula of supershock shadows – they are absolutely amazing. I got the shades cornelious, twitterpated, truth, cosmic charge and a supernova shadow in running in orbits. These are so easy to use in the morning when you are in a rush and need to get a easy wash of colour (my all time favourite look). I like that they feel bouncy and usually don’t crease on me unless I’m extremely sweaty, but even then I find that they last the entire work day in the summer which is a bonus.

eyeshadows

 

lip-gloss-and-liquid-eyeshadow

The lip glosses. I really wanted to love these, I do like the shades! Particularly “fairy me”. I will wear them and get use out of them, but honestly these aren’t anything super special! I would say, they have a lot of colour options which is great and the biggest selling point of them in my opinion. However, the formula is nothing too exciting but if you don’t have any lip glosses or just want more colours than these are for you! I also didn’t find them super sticky or gloppy which is a bonus but they aren’t my new favourites if you get what I mean.

blotted-lip-sticks.png

The blotted lips. Are fricken amazing. I can’t stop loving them. They are very matte and slightly powdery feeling on the lips but they are stunning shades and super easy to wear. I got the shade “on a stick” which is a beautiful coral shade, my favourite the spring summer season (really any season) and the shade “bees knees” which is a beautiful fuschia magenta shade perfect pop to really any look you want.  You don’t need a mirror and can reapply throughout the day without worrying about getting it everywhere. I like to put on a lip balm then put these over top and the impact of these is beautiful. They are a sheer formula that can be built up as if you have actually blotted your lips on a tissue. I would definitely buy more of these!

What are you favourite items from colourpop?


Sephora Sale: the haul

“Makeup is fun, and also sad, when your entire paycheque goes straight to Sephora”, a lovely quote from vintage ladylike circa 2016. I’m sorry bank account, but I’ve participated in the Sephora VIB sale and have made so fun purchases and thought I would share them with you! I will also update all of you folks once I’ve used these products for a few weeks!

The makeup items: the Anastasia Beverly Hill soft glam palette and the NARS Fort De France highlighter, and a beauty tool,  Fenty blending sponge since my sponges were nasty!

Okay so the NARS highlighter...honestly I got it because I was watching the Anna Edit and she loved it and I obviously want to be her so alas I bought it. It’s a very tightly packed highlighter and is a soft powder when you touch it, the packaging is heavy and luxurious! I don’t have any higher end of the high end brands of highlighters except my Anastasia glow kit I got for my birthday last year and the balm highlighter which arguably is the price of some drugstore highlighters. I feel like a real adult with my NARS highlighter.

The soft glam palette. My word this is a breathtaking palette! I don’t own any Anastasia eyeshadow palettes and lots of the shades in this palette are shades I have been eyeing in the singles. It felt meant to be if I say so myself. My favourite eye look is a wash of colour with literally any shadow and a inner corner highlight and wala a good look for the day!

Fenty Blending Sponge

Skincare. I have been on such a skincare kick lately and finding my perfect routine! I think I’ve found the perfect toner, still searching for the perfect cleanser and have found my way back to my tea tree exfoliator from the Body Shop. But that’s a post for another day. People, hold your breath (this is mostly for my mother when she reads this) I got the Caudalie vinoperfect brightening essence concentrate. Mother of pearl, this is soooooooo luxurious. I have never really considered Caudalie but as I am foraying into trying to give my skin good ingredients I found myself at the stand in Sephora! This is also a French beauty brand which I find myself (and the rest of the blog world for that matter, a bit obsessed with. I saw the word brightening and I said to myself “well I’m sold”.

Drunk Elephant and Caudalie

Now for the “big guns”, by this I mean minis of the marula facial oil and TLC Framboos glycolic night serum that is so raved about on the interwebs. I really wanted to try some drunk elephant products, but I am not going to lie this jazz is expensive and I just couldn’t commit to buying a bigger size because that is a lot of moola. Will report back when I have a used this for a month or so!

Did you get anything at the sale?! If so tell me below!


Product empties

I have seen these on YouTube and perhaps they are better suited to that platform BUT I have accumulated so many products that I have used up over the past I would 6-8 months. These items range from body care, skincare, and makeup (yay!). I thought I would take you through a few items and give a mini review.
Skincare items: the Ordinary squalane, Physicians Formula glow booster oil, Burt’s Bees radiance cleanser, Sukin exfoliator, Avalon organics exfoliator and a point perk Fresh Black Tea face mask and a Lush fresh jelly face mask. Okay, most of these items were good, but not mind blowing, just average products. A standout was the Physicians Formula Glow Booster facial oil. This is one I plan on repurchasing because it is beautiful. It is a blend of oils and actually (in my opinion) does boost the brightness of you skin and its an oil serum which is good to add to your routine. The Ordinary Squalane oil was alright, I have another one my mom recently gifted me but its not bad, it does boost hydration but I think I’d repurchase the oil serum before this. The other products, including the exfoliators were great but not things I would readily repurchase again because I love trying new things.

Schmidt's deodorant, Physici

Avalon organics lavendar scrub, The Body Shop Bronzing dome, Sephora Dry clean brush cleaner

Body care: There are more things in this category than I originally thought I had. The Schmidt’s deodorant in bergamot and lime which is a great scent and works well. Okay, I am on a journey friends, A JOURNEY, to find a great natural deodorant. This was good but I prefer the sensitive formula as mentioned in my March things I liked and did. I also threw in my Tom’s whole care toothpaste. I like this one a lot more than their sensitive teeth one. This one was a good and I really like the flavour and it actually works. It does have fluoride which I’m fine with! I have already purchased this one and also got the Jason Powersmile toothpaste (thanks Morerebe). The Cake Beauty body lotion was delectable (as the name might suggest) and its smells like a tropical vacation. I will definitely purchase this again.

Cake Beauty, Fresh beauty, Sukin Pur concealer, nudestix mascara, Toms toothpaste

Makeup: This is the most exciting category. There are only four things. I know not super exciting for the normal person who only has a few makeup products but for me this is so exciting. I finally finished my project pan concealer the Pur disappearing act concealer and its finally done! I really liked this but I don’t think I will repurchase because I am still on the hunt for the perfect concealer. I also already have two in my collection to use up so I have to get those bad boys out my collection before I purchase anymore.

My body shop honey bronzing dome in champagne. This took me roughly two years to finish. TWO YEARS. Which is terrifying because I also own a million more powder highlighters and cream highlighters so I can only imagine how long those will take to use up. I also finished my Becca shimmering skin perfector in the travel size that I got during the VIB sale in April last year so it’s about a year old. I finished this a while ago probably in February but it wasn’t great honestly. It’s not a bad product at all, its gives  a nice glow to the skin but it made my face quite itchy so I finished it for the sake of finishing it and won’t be repurchasing simply because of my skin’s reaction. The Nudestix mascara was the last product I finished in the past months. It was a really beautiful mascara – I loved it. It was the perfect day to day mascara and I would repurchase if I didn’t have so many mascaras to get through. A random but the Sephora dry brush cleanser is AMAZING. It’s the hidden gem of Sephora, it cleans your brushes instantly and is convenient to have on hand. Highly recommend.

Things I liked and did in March

How did this happen? How is March over? How is it almost exams and then summer and then who knows what after that? Well, despite March being a busy month, I did like and do (okay so I didn’t actually do anything this month because I’m boring, but we had some cool events this month so that was fun). Alas, I almost forgot to do this post but I couldn’t leave ya’ll hanging.

My first thing that i liked this month was castile soap. This isn’t a new favourite but I love the green beaver lavender castile soap. It works for everything: I wash dishes with it, I put about ½ cup of the soap and the rest distilled water (so water I boiled earlier that day and mix it together). Because the soap is so concentrated that’s why i do this. I LOVE THIS. It has so many uses, I clean dishes with it, I clean the tub with it, I clean the counters with it, when I actually wash the floors I wash the floors with it. I love it because it’s natural and doesn’t irritate my lungs or nose.

Green beaver castile soap lavender

The second thing I have been loving this month is the Schmidt’s tea tree sensitive skin deodorant. I have been searching for a deodorant that doesn’t irritate my pits, a natural one that works, and a natural one that can stand a workout. This one fits the bill. Yes, I sweat more but as humans we are supposed to. Ps would you like to read a post about my switch to natural deodorant?

schmidt's tea tree deodorant

The Ordinary serum foundation. Omg. this. Foundation. Ya’ll it’s so good. It doesn’t make my face itchy, it has barely there coverage but coverage enough to even the skin tone. It comes in a billion shades which is a plus and it’s under $10. Honestly, this is the best foundation I have ever used.

 

The Balm Mary Lou Manizer and this random brush I got from winners. I was watching my favourite beauty Youtuber Melissa Alatorre and she does her highlight with a fluffy tapered brush over the pocket of her brow bone and cheek bone before eyeshadow and frequently will do highlight before anything else. In the video I linked she did it before her eye shadow and it was a beautiful effect. I just love the way it diffuses into the skin and ALSO I’m so close to hitting pan I can see the rings ever so faintly, hence my excitement over this new found discovery of wearing highlight.

Burts Bees foundation powder, The Balm Mary Lou Manizer, The ordinary foundation

The Burts Bees foundation powder. THIS IS THE FIRST POWDER I’VE EVER DISCOVERED THAT DOESN’T MAKE ME LOOK CAKEY. Sorry, I’m not yelling at you but by golly I just can’t believe how great this is. I am doing a more thorough review on my upcoming Burt’s Bees review post, but just know its great.

The Cake Beauty wave spray. One, this smells like cake. So really you can’t go wrong. Two, it’s perfect for short hair and it’s even better when you use it on slightly wet hair before going to bed as it creates a nice textured look.

Underrated Drugstore products

Essence prismatic highlighter: I bought this on a whim in good old shoppers drug mart. What a great place, it takes all your money. I bought this because I thought this might be a dupe for the Nudestix illuminaughty highlighter, but alas its not. BUT I really like this, I wear it almost daily mixed with other highlighters (the ones in my project pan). It has a blue/pink duochrome shift, and isn’t sticky at all.

essence prismatic highlighter

Essence matte bronzer: I bought this bronzer last summer because my Physicians Formula butter bronzer was too light to give me any of that sun kissed warmth I was seeking. It smells exactly like the butter bronzer and while a bit more warm, it’s not so ridiculous that you like you have had a bad tanning experience. It’s also extremely affordable.

Essence bronzer and Milani earthy elements

Milani eyeshadow palettes: I have the Milani earthy elements palette, its BEAUTIFUL. If you are looking for a cruelty free palette, at a drugstore price that actually has good matte shades, these palettes are for you. Now, I only can attest to the earthy elements one but it’s BEAUTIFUL. Now, because of my embarrassing amount of palettes I don’t use this as often now a days, but the shades are unique (trust me they don’t dupe the naked heat palette but they give a similar effect), are easy to blend and last all day! They are also pigmented even if you don’t use a primer which is a bonus.

Elf studio blushes

Elf studio blushes: I was raiding my collection and was thinking: what blush do I have that isn’t talked about at length in the beauty community. I came across my Elf Studio Blushes. These are so underrated, they are pigmented but no so pigmented that you are startled when you slap it on to your cheeks. They come in several different shades and again, like most things in this post, is affordable.

Wet n wild oaks on you cream “contour stick”: I first saw this on Youtube but it wasn’t very well liked. It wasn’t hyped at all, I only saw on YouTuber use it and it looked amazing. Of course I bought it cause I was curious. If you are not wanting to spend the money on Nudestix Bondi Bae or the Milk Makeup bronzer stick I’d say this one has you covered. I like to apply it buy swirling a flat kabuki brush and then swirling it on all the bronzer places.

Pixi Tinted lip balm

Pixi tinted lip balms: I really like these lip balms. I find they actually moisturize my lips, they smell good and are all beautifully pigmented, but not too pigmented which is what I like in a tinted lip balm (hence the name). These come in a few shades and every time I wear them I get a compliment on my lip colour.

Favourite Workout Leggings

Once you go lulu you never go back. Yes. I know. They are extremely expensive, like too expensive. But, they without a doubt, always fit. ALWAYS. Yes my size varies, but anytime I need a pant, lulu always comes through. I have been thinking, what are the best leggings for running? The gym? Etc. But not all leggings are made equal

So for running, I have a very specific criteria: can’t fall down, must feel comfortable and not constricting on my legs, should have a drawstring. This will be a future post because my expectations for running clothes are a lot different then for gymwear.

For working out/HIIT/lifting/personal training: My only criteria is comfort and breathability. More specifically, I also like a pant that doesn’t fall down while I’m working out.

Brand wise: I like Lululemon, Gymshark, and Adidas. Ah such a wide range. My personal problem with a lot of brands is they just don’t flatter my body. I find that Lululemon really knows how to make a legging that has a nice wide waistband and flattering on the behind. I honestly, have religiously worn Lululemon pants for everything. These leggings are ranked by favourite fit.

Lululemon aligns (for typical gym wear, a quick spin session, some weights). They are buttery soft, flattering and of course highly overpriced. But, I really like these for general gym wear. YES I would say if you are sweating a lot these will show sweat, but not to the point that I feel uncomfortable which I think is great. 

Gymshark seamless, lululemon aligns, lululemon fast and free

Lululemon crops, the fast and free and the pacer crop. Both of them are amazing and feel like you are wearing nothing. They also don’t fall down at all, they are good for ALL types of exercise and running, which is a bonus. I mean shouldn’t they be good at everything considering the price? I think yes.

The Gymshark fit and seamless legging. So I was very skeptical about purchasing Gymshark. Mainly because there is no physical store and its USD prices but I was convinced that I should try some stuff. AND THAT I DID. The seamless collection is my personal favourite, I have the blue and “black”. The blue is great, squat proof and sweat proof. I also enjoy the fit legging. While not as popular as the flex and seamless, I really like them.  I have heard a lot of people say they aren’t squat proof, but I have the black with the lilac waistband and they fit perfectly don’t budge during my intense HIIT workouts, and aren’t sheer, I give them an A+. I also recently got the ombré seamless: these also hide sweat. I’m very impressed.

Purple Gymshark leggingsMy adidas mid rise climalite leggings. They feel similar to the align pant just slightly thicker, ever so slightly. Link is similar but not the exact pair I have.

What are your favourite workout leggings!?


Project Pan Roulette

Recently I discovered a AMAZING YouTube channel called Rebecca Morgan and her blog morerebe and Alexandra Sjosten (she is so cool). Please check out their channels and blogs! They are both great! They have a series called “project pan roulette” and since this was my first time hearing about it, I thought gee that would be a cool thing to join in on! So I messaged Rebecca and she was so kind and authentic and said of course! She kindly sent me the categories and I put them into random.com like they did and voila got my project items! The project lasts four months so this will be ending on July 9th!  I have really loved discovering YouTube channels about shopping your stash and project pans and am so happy they let me join on this project!

So my goals: hit pan on two items and use each of them so that they have visible progress.

Annabelle Lip GlossCategory 1: A product you don’t like. For this I chose the physicians formula sportswear mascara. I bought this because I was looking for a mascara, with good ingredients and that was more waterproof than my beloved organic Mascara from them. But this wand IS REALLY SWORD, every time I use it it’s like a super poke but I’m determined to try and use it!

Category 2: A product you received as a gift. For this one I chose the balm mary luminizer. She’s beauty and she’s grace, she is the balm Mary luminizer. Honestly this was my first champagne highlighter. My first one was my body shop bronzing dome in champagne (which is now done). I got this from my aunt a few Christmases ago and I can see the rings so I think I can hit pan by July

wetnwildcomfortzonemilaniblushhighlighterCategory 3: A product from a previous project. I chose Milani luminoso for this category.  I have never had a previous project BUT this is something that last summer I was determined to get use out of so I chose it for this category. Again, my first blush ever that wasn’t something my mom bought me! And the first item I bought because of YouTube hype. It’s actually got quite the dent in it and with spring (theoretically speaking) just around the corner I thought why not?

Category 4: A product you wouldn’t repurchase. So this might be a bit odd, but I went with the Wet n Wild comfort zone palette. Yes, I know, in the beauty world this is a cult classic. BUT I just never use it…like ever…..so my goal for this is to use one of the crease shades and the dark burgundy shade. It is high quality and a lot of the shades are dupes for MAC (which is a part of the reason I bought it) however realistically I don’t wear green eyeshadow or cool duochrome ones. So I’m going to focus on the more neutral shades and hopefully hit pan on the one shade! Goals friends, goals.

annabelleeyshadowCategory 5: An item from your favourite brand. One of my favourite brands in  Annabelle. I chose their chrome eyeshadow in rose gold. Again, I love this item. It’s more of a summer item but I think that I will be able to make even more of dent in the next four months

Category 6: A product of your choice. This was ambiguous but I chose the Annabelle lip lacquer in Adore Simply. This is most underrated brand in my opinion and one of my dare I say, favourite brands? I have been wanting to get more use of this one and have been really into lipgloss lately!

Things I liked and did in February

Ah February, or as i like to say, the shortest month in the universe. It was a decent month. I had reading week (my last one ever, tear) and it was basically my last month of semi – relaxing. March is all the events and all the assignments. But you know what, I am also (hoping) to start training for my half marathon. However, I had an incident with the stairs so I’m put on hold currently.

Whittle Buttons bo-boosk. My wee kitty bitty! I saw her on reading week, (my very last one) and I also got to see my mother and my bestest friend. Whenever I go home, I really appreciate the home vibe. I love the throwback to when I used to skate, and the easiness of having an at home gym set up and laundry. Back to Buttons, she is a lovely wee bean and is just such a little girl and is so affectionate! She also has the cutest meow (okay I will stop now but just look at this adorable photo) IMG_0755.jpg

While I was at home I did some cardio workouts in the basement because my town was an ice rink and I wore my blue gymshark seamless leggings. I have to tell you they didn’t show my sweat – at all. This was so impressive to me because I have long since been a hardcore black or super dark blue workout pant gal; but these impressed me. Good job gymshark, thank you for diversifying my bottom half of my workout wardrobe. 

My physicians formula butter bronzer. Gee I forgot how great this was. Fun fact: this was my first bronzer EVER that’s right it’s probably 2 years old when I got it at Walmart two summer ago. It’s LITERALLY the never ending bronzer. It’s more of a sculpting bronzer than one that warms you up but I really like it for daily use, and then layer on a shimmery bronzer if I feel like it. They came out with a few more shades which is tempting but I must resist!

Decluttering lipsticks. Ahh letting go of my liquid lipstick phase. I finally parted my Colourpop liquid lipsticks, they just smelled so bad and same with my Too Faced one in Queen B! The only ones I haven’t brought myself to get rid of are the NYX soft Matte lip creams…they are just so good and creamy! I have tried time and time again and I just find myself not wanting to get rid of them. They are probably (embarrassingly) around two years old so its probably time for them to do, but I predict during spring cleaning I may have to part with them. But decluttering has really been enjoyable and at some point I’m going to have to move so decluttering was inevitable!

My project pan. This has really made me think about product, value and what I gravitate towards (hence my ongoing decluttering of products to pass onto friends). And it’s not that the colours or formulas of the products I’m not using are bad, but they are just not things I gravitate toward in my everyday. Which relates to the first point: when moving I want to lighten my load in all aspects of my material life.
