Rolling Project 10 Pan 2019 intro

I am so excited to start my new project pan for 2019. I have picked a product from all the categories in my makeup collection. A cream, powder and of course a matte and shimmery bronzer. I have a few set goals in mind and I will be rolling in products as I go. If I either finish one, or if I get extremely bored by one I will just roll in a new one. I will attempt to update monthly but if I don’t have significant progress than I will forgo the update for that month.

The base products

First Aid Beauty Tinted Moisturizer

I really like this, however it does pull a bit dark on me. I am hoping to finish this within the first month of this project and by the next update roll something new in.

Revlon concealer

This concealer is amazing, I really like it. I can feel like it’s nearing it’s end. I hope to also be done this by the first update and roll in something new.


Nudestix Tinted blur stick

Again, another of my favourite base products. I LOVE this so much. It is so sheer and creates a dewy finish even with its blurring properties. I also think this is something I can have finished by the next update.


The Body Shop multi stick

This was a favourite from summer 2016-17 and I wanted to get more use out of it. It doesn’t appear to be available online anymore but I am sure you can find it in store. I am hoping to finish this one this year or at least, see a significant shortening (is that a word) of the stick itself.


Physicians Formula Butter blush

This is also in my project pan roulette, okay is this cheating? Yes quite possible. But I really like it and want to hit pan on it.  It is a perfect nude blush for my skin tone and it gives my cheeks a healthy glow.


Physicians Formula Butter bronzer

I have already hit pan on it and hope to further expand the pan. I still enjoy this and hope that I can finish it this year.


Joe Fresh Highlighter

I chose a few highlighters for this project. A girl has got to have choices. I do quite like this and it is a bit older in my collection so I want to see this used as much as I can. Hopefully I can see some progress each month!


Rimmel London Kate Sculpting Palette

This is another older product in my collection and I’m not sure they sell this exact shade anymore. As you might remember, my products on the chopping block this was in it. I discovered I love the bronzer and want to hit pan on this one this year.


Essence pure nude highlighter

This was one of my first YouTube made me buy it products. I do quite enjoy this highlighter. It is subtle and pretty and never fails me.

Becca Champagne Pop

A moment of silence for the fallen one. I can still use this despite it’s appearance. I can use this with my finger and with a brush still. I think it will actually be quite easy to use up so it was a good attainable project pan goal for me to have this year.

Are you doing a project pan this year?

Pin this for later!


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

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

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?

Things I liked and Did in July

Wait? It is already August? How did this happen? It’s bonkers! I did some fun stuff in July and discovered a few products, a few old favourites were brought back to the fore front and of course I went on an amazing trip with my dad to the UK!

My first thing that I did was go to the UK with my dad. We went to London and Aberdeen. It was amazing! Of course we had the four hottest days in London but nonetheless it was beautiful. We took the tube like true londoners and explored Oxford Street, saw the Tower of London, took a boat tour to Greenwich and just a lot of walking around and seeing the sites. We also went to Aberdeen which is BEAUTIFUL a hidden gem of Scotland (maybe not so hidden but its great). We did a boat tour, saw dolphins, saw the university which was amazing, unfortunately we didn’t know this but we were there on a holiday so the library wasn’t open! Then we experienced the pubs that are randomly in old churches and castles. We also visited Stirling castle which was beautiful. The stone was beautifully crafted and everything was super short so perfect for me.I wish we had more time to explore both places but alas we will go back eventually!

Okay now for the makeup. First a cheek product. Becca Champagne pop. Ya’ll, why did I not ever have this before? Maybe because the bulk of my highlighter collection is drugstore I just never forayed into the high end world of highlighters and I think I may be converted. It is a beautiful champagne colour that isn’t too dark for my skin (right now since I have tan from England, who knew) so I’m interested to see how it looks on my skin in the winter, maybe all the more reason to get the lighter shade moonstone?

I wanted to give a shout out to the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette and the Maybelline Rooftop bronzes city mini palette. I have been reaching for these two when I’m going for a bolder look and have been loving a specific combination of shadows. The matte shade in the sweet peach Puree all over the lid, then with the shade Luscious tapped on top. Then, to make it even more glittery and grand, I have been dabbing the Maybelline Rooftop bronzes the fourth shade from the left at the top and scattered in the middle. It creates a beautiful and bronzy which is my favourite kind of look.

I have also been loving my lavender scented things. I bought the Bite Agave Lip mask in Lavender and also have been loving using my Lavender essential oil from Therawell. Yes, to many lavender is an old lady scent but I just can’t get enough of it. The lip mask is pretty good so far, I wear it at night or when I exercise or go running and it’s really been helping my lips feel soft and hydrated. I also love wearing the essential oil either as a perfume or before bed because it’s just such a relaxing scent

What did you enjoy this month?!
