Project Pan: THE RESULTS!!

Empties and purges, Product reviews, Videos
I'm finally back to report my results of the project pan I started back in March. Are you ready to see how it went? https://youtu.be/TnGZM2WeYh0 The Results Not many of these products had a very dramatic change, but I've learned in this process that it's really all about the details. I myself didn't even see some of the changes until I had the images side-by-side in my video editor. IT Cosmetics Celebration Illumination Foundation in Light - I started with quite a bit of pan showing, and now it's pretty significant. I was expecting more progress on this one, but partway through I figured out that this powder breaks me out! Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso - This blush is domed, so it's super hard to see, but I've been…

Pare Down: April Update

Another month already? Man, this month was rough. My routine was thrown off a lot and I had some intense work deadlines, so tidying was straight-up not a priority for me. I can't help but think I could have tried harder or pushed through, but I needed that time to focus on my work and my family and friends, and I'm much happier for it in the end. This is a fantastic lesson in expressing understanding towards myself -- it's something I offer freely to others but don't extend to myself. I got on and off track with my daily tidying goal and my strength training. I managed to cook about three meals per week. I packed lunches fairly regularly instead of buying (a luxury in downtown SF). I got all the…

A Big Bag o' Empties

To help you skim through it, I put text on the screen so you can find the products you're most interested in. https://youtu.be/seC2TXfoa_w I hope you enjoyed all those reviews. I haven't done an empties post or video since 2014, I think... Oh, and if you're curious about my makeup, I'm wearing the same face as my recent FOTD post ;)

Hello! I noticed while I was moving out of my dorm room that I had quite a few makeup items that I had used up or that I wanted to toss out, so I thought it would be a good time to write my first empties post! It's finally time to say goodbye to my tube of Diorshow mascara. I had mixed feelings about this mascara, but I was lagging on actually throwing it out. I don't see myself repurchasing this, at least not for the near future, as I'm still going to be on a student's budget for another year. Next I have two eyeliner samples from Clinique. They look like they'd have a lot of product in them, but they don't. All you get is the little bit…
