I’m Trying Project Pan

I’m Trying Project Pan

Hi, Guys! Recently I have become obsessed with a YouTuber named Lauren Mae Beauty. Every day I watch her videos and she has a project pan series. She has called her project pan, “Finish 18 in 2018”. Watching this video inspired me to pick some products that I want to finish up. I went through my makeup and chose some items to try to finish up. I surprisingly chose more than I thought I would. I picked out 14 products, and I picked out a few from each category. So I am going to attempt to update you guys each month on my progress. I want to see how many of these products that I can finish by the end of the year. I think the lip products are going to be the hardest to use up. At the end of the year, I am going to get rid of these lip products even if they aren’t all the way used up. I chose some lip products that I’ve had for a long time but I want to use as much as possible before getting rid of them.

20180422_194130.jpg I’ve broken the products up into a couple of products per picture so that way it’s easier to see them. I’ll just go through each product in each picture.

-Too Face Chocolate Soleil bronzer- This is a sample size I got at Ulta.

-Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Paaarty- This was part of the Sephora birthday gift last year.

-The Balm Hot Mama Blush- I actually got 2 of these in one of my ipsy bags a long time ago. I feel like these won’t take long to go through.

 

20180422_194302.jpg-Wet n wild megaglo contouring palette- I love this thing and am planning on repurchasing this when I finish it.

-E.L.F HD powder in soft luminance- I’ve had this powder for a while and it seems to be almost done.

-Trestique mini highlight stick in Maldives luminescent- I got this as a sample in an ipsy bag. You cant see it too well in this picture but the amount is really low.

 

 

 

20180422_200409.jpg-Maybelline Fit Me stick foundation- I want to find a stick foundation that I like because I think they’re really good for on the go. I don’t know if I really like this one quite yet.

-L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Glow foundation- I honestly love all the foundations in the infallible range. I’m just almost done with this one and will be repurchasing.

-Maybelline Fit Me Concealer- I really like this one and I’m almost done with it

-Wet n Wild Photofocus concealer- I think this concealer is just ok. I don’t think I’ll repurchase.

 

20180422_200605.jpg-Marc Jacobs lip creme in kiss kiss bang bang- This was part of the Sephora gift 2 years ago and I just want to use it up.

-NYX matte lipstick in perfect red- I have had this lipstick for so long! I just want to use up as much as possible before getting rid of it.

-Revlon Matte Balm in sultry- This is one of my favorite lip colors/products. I have had it for a while and I want to repurchase it but also use up as much of this one.

-Revlon Balm in Smitten- This is like the other one but not a matte finish.

Target Has Beauty Boxes In Store!

Target Has Beauty Boxes In Store!

Hello, everybody! I hope you all have had an amazing last couple of months. I’ve been busy with school so I disappeared for a bit like usual. Every semester I say that I will continue to post regularly, and every semester I tend to get a little too busy. Luckily I am back now and have had a few posts building up. Today I am going to talk about the new beauty boxes at Target! Target has had a monthly beauty box online for a while but now they have them in store as well. I don’t know if this is going to be a monthly thing or just a one-time thing. I hope that it sticks and they put new boxes out every month. They had 4 different boxes to choose from. Each one had a different name and seemed to have a different theme of products. I chose two different boxes, The wakeup and makeup box and the all the masks box. It does tell you one the back which products come in the box. I looked at the makeup one but decided not to look at the masks one so that I would be surprised. If this becomes a permanent thing that they do, I am going to try not to look at the contents before I buy. Each box is $7, which I think is a pretty good price for the samples you get. I actually got a few full sized products in the boxes. Let’s go through the contents of each box.
Wakeup and Makeup Box:

20180408_112932.jpg– Dove Dry Spray deodorant (full size) So far I really like this deaodorant

-Dove Dry shampoo (travel size) I’m not a big fan of Dove’s dry shampoo but I’m gonna use it

-Sonia Kashuk brush cleaning wipe (1ct) I would consider buying a pack of these

-Covergirl Peacock Flare Mascara (full size) It’s not a bad mascara but not my favorite

-Honest Beauty Makeup Wipes (15 ct) Can never go wrong with a makeup wipe

-E.L.F Blending Brush, I really like this for bronzer

-E.L.F Beautifully bare face pallete (full size) I did not like this but I’m going to give it to someone that might like it.

 

All the Masks Box (all full size, also I haven’t got to try all of these yet)

20180417_091402.jpg – Neutrogena Hydrating Gel Masl

-Yes to carrots and kale paper mask

-Masque Bar Luminizing charcoal peel off mask

-St. Ives soothing oatmeal mask

-Que Bella multi masking trio

The Cleanser That Ruined My skin And The Cleanser That Saved It

The Cleanser That Ruined My skin And The Cleanser That Saved It

Hello everybody! I hope everyone has had a good week. I start school this week and I hope this semester I can keep trying to post. Last semester was very hectic and I put blogging on hold for a bit. So I’m always trying to new face cleansers. I’m still trying to find one that I want to stick to. Every once in a while I’ll find a cleanser that I really like and I’ll keep buying it. After a few months of using it my skin will change and then I need to find a new one. I recently had an experience where a face wash made my skin break really bad.

The cleanser that made me break out really bad was the Body Shop Tea Tree skin clearing facial wash. I love having tea tree in my hair products but I haven’t used it much on my face. I do like the tea tree toner from Lush. After using this face wash I kind of think that I had an allergic reaction to it. I don’t know if it was the tea tree or something else in the cleanser. My skin was so broken out and inflamed. I had no idea what was causing it so I decided to just start changing different things in my routine to figure it out. My first step was to change my face wash and I found out that is exactly what was causing my irritation.

I decided to pick up the Pacifica Kale Detox deep cleaning face wash. This face wash a miracle for my skin. I saw a huge difference in my skin overnight. There has never been another time where I have actually seen results so fast from a cleanser. After seeing that I completely stopped using the tea tree cleanser and have only been using the Pacifica one. My skin has been looking pretty nice lately. I think this is going to be a cleanser that I continue to buy.

Having the tea tree cleanser break out my skin really surprised me because I have heard great things about the Body Shop’s tea tree line. Personally, I don’t think that I’m going to try anything else in the line. Let me know what your experience is with this cleanser or any of the other tea tree products. I’m curious to see if anyone else has had the same experience as me. Well, I hope everyone has a great week and I hope your cleansers don’t break out your skin.

Empties| End Of 2017

Empties| End Of 2017

Since the year is finally over I’m going to talk about a bunch of products that I used up in the last half of 2017. I made a post in June about all the products that I used up in the first half. If you want to see those you can check it out here. I don’t think that I saved every product that I used up. Sometimes I just throw them away without thinking to save them. It seems like I have a pretty small amount of products this go around. Let’s get into the products!

L. Organic Tampons and Liners

This is a brand that I saw at Target. Apparently feminine products have all kinds of chemicals in them including chlorine, rayon, and fragrances. These tampons and liners are made without all of that. They’re mainly just organic cotton. I have really been enjoying them and they are not any more expensive than the other brands at Target. Also, the packaging is beautiful! I’m a sucker for good packaging. I would totally suggest checking this brand out here.

Garnier Moisture Bomb Sheet Masks

I’ve really fallen in love with these sheet masks. I’m not the biggest fan of sheet masks because they always seem to fall off my face. Garnier’s masks actually stay on and I really did see a difference in my skin right away. I’ve used much more than just this one. These masks are about $2.50 at Target.

Yes To Wipes

I went through plenty of different wipes this year and for some reason, I only saved these two. There really isn’t much to say about makeup wipes. These ones were great and I love this brand. I think you can get this brand pretty much anywhere. The smell of the primrose oil wipes was extremely nice.

Aveeno Conditoner

I’ve never seen Aveeno conditioners before but their lotion is really nice. The pure renewal conditioner was ok. Personally, it didn’t do much for my hair. Of course, everyone’s hair is different so this might work nicely for someone else. This is about $6 at Target.

Mascaras

The colossal big shot mascara was kind of a disappointment for me. I heard a lot of people talk about it so I thought it would be nice. It just didn’t do anything for my lashes. I would not buy again.

It cosmetic’s superhero mascara was pretty nice. It definitely gave my lashes length. This was a nice mascara. However, I think there are plenty of cheaper mascaras that do the same thing. One example is the one I’m going to talk about next.

Rimmel Londons scandal eyes retro glam mascara has become a staple mascara for me. I did buy this again and am very happy about it. This gives me both length and a little extra volume. I bought this mascara for around $4 at Ulta, but I’m looking on their website and I can’t find it now. They also sell it at Target and Walmart.

Boscia Detoxifying Cleanser

I’m glad that I only bought the small size of this. The cleanser did nothing for my skin and actually started to make me break out a little bit. It smells good and has a warming sensation. My friend who has drier skin than me tried it as well and didn’t like it either. I would not recommend.

ULTA Demi-Matte Foundation

Nobody ever talks about Ulta’s brand and it’s a little disappointing. Ulta really does have some nice products in their collection. This foundation is one of them. It’s very light coverage kind of like a BB cream. I do want to pick this up again.

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Detox Scrub

This ended up being one of my favorite products of 2017. This smells so nice and makes my skin feel so good! It’s also made with pretty good ingredients. I would really recommend checking this out!

My Day to Night Look| AUrate New York

My Day to Night Look| AUrate New York

Hello, everybody! I hope you had a great week. My week has been busy with a lot of studying. I recently learned about a company called AUrate New York. They are a jewelry company and all the jewelry is handmade and ethically sourced. If you want to learn more about them and their mission you can check it out here.

What I really like about this company is that they’ve partnered with Philadelphia schools. For every piece of jewelry sold they donate a book to a child in need. This is super important to me because books are an amazing thing for every child to have. I loved reading as a child and still do. If you click here you can read more about their effort which they call A Book for You Look.

AUrate New York is running a campaign for women to show how they incorporate jewelry into a day to night look. This idea intrigued me because I’ve been wanting to start incorporating fashion posts in my blog.  My definition of a day to night look is having one staple piece that you can just change the accessories around quickly. For my staple piece, I chose a simple black dress. I’m going to show you my day and night look with the dress. I’m also going to show you some of the jewelry that I like from AUrate New York that I think would go well with each of the looks.

I really like to be comfortable during the day so sneakers and a flannel are definitely the way to go. For the necklace, I chose the black stones choker from AUrate.

For my night look, I like to be a little more dressed up. The flannel was changed to a blazer. The sneakers were changed to some cute booties. The earrings I chose the icon earrings in white gold.

Let me know how you guys put together your day to night look. I would love some more tips on how to expand my wardrobe. Be sure to check out AUrate New York and all their beautiful jewelry.

I Drink This Everyday

I Drink This Everyday

Hello, Everybody! I hope your week was amazing. I have recently started to drink more water because I know that I do not drink enough. For the past month or so I have started drinking a mixture of things in my water. My mixture is a spoonful of agave, a spoonful of apple cider vinegar, and 15 drops of chlorophyll concentrate. Once a day I drink this all mixed into a glass of water. It surprisingly tastes really good. It’s really sweet and the chlorophyll I bought has a peppermint taste to it. The agave is mostly in there just to sweeten it up a little. I also prefer agave over honey and the agave has a lower glycemic index. However, honey has a little more health benefits than agave. So if you would prefer the other benefits then I would say go with honey but I’m just gonna stick with my agave. Now the other two ingredients I actually use for the health benefits and I’ll get into each one.

Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

  • antibacterial
  • lowers blood sugar
  • helps you feel full (especially helpful if you drink before each meal)
  • lowers cholesterol
  • reduces risk of heart disease
  • balances pH

Benefits of Chlorophyll

  • skin benefits
  • supposedly helps with detoxification (I’m a little wary of things claiming to be “detoxifying”)
  • improves digestion

I totally suggest trying this mixture. I have noticed a difference in my skin and my bloating with this mixture. To be honest it also just tastes really good. Let me know if you guys have any specific health mixture you like to drink.

NYX Ultimate Warm Neutrals

NYX Ultimate Warm Neutrals

Wow! It has been a couple months since I have posted on here. I got so busy with school starting and also going through a couple other changes. I was on a pretty good posting schedule and hope to get back to it. I want to talk about this palette that I bought a while ago. I bought one of the NYX ultimate palettes. They come in a couple different colors and I got the warm neutrals shade. Each palette is about $18. I want to get the other shades as well. Very affordable and very good quality. NYX has always been a brand that very rarely disappoints me. All of the products that I’ve tried so far seem to be pretty good. I’ll show you guys some swatches and then give you my overall thoughts.

All of the colors have pretty good pigmentation. I’m surprised at how well the light colors swatch also. Once applied the colors also blend pretty well. Sometimes they blend away a little too easy, but I think I would rather have that than not blend out at all. I also really like the color selection in the palette. I feel like I can get a lot of different looks with this. There is also a good balance between mattes and shimmers. I hate when palettes have almost no mattes. The packaging is also fairly small so you could travel with it if you wanted. I definitely recommend this palette. Go pick it up!
