Project Pan 2019, and 2018 Results

For the past 2 years, I’ve been doing project pans to finish up the makeup that I own. I don’t own a lot of makeup, but I also think it’s important not to buy a lot that you can never finish. It’s good for your wallet, and the environment too! I’ve been really successful with my project pans, and I hope that I’ll finish a lot more products this year.


The one thing I learned from 2018, was that lip products take a billion years to finish. I’m almost done a lipstick (Aquarius Lippie Stix by Colourpop), but it’s still going strong into 2019. That’s one product I know for sure will be finished this year. There were quite a bit of lip products that I gave away, or threw out because they were very old. However, I think in 2019, I won’t have that issue because I like all of my makeup products, and don’t own anything that’s ancient. I also realized that sometimes I use a product a lot without even noticing, and unexpectedly pan it. I’m pretty happy with my results this year, but I think I can do better in 2019.

Here is what I panned/finished in 2018:
– Caramel eyeshadow by Too Faced
– Beaches and Cream eyeshadow by Makeup Geek
– Porter eyeshadow by Colourpop
– Weenie eyeshadow by Colourpop
– At The Beach Spray by Bath & Body Works
– Peaches and Cream eyeshadow by Too Faced
– Nectar eyeshadow by Too Faced
– Wattles eyeshadow by Colourpop
– L’oreal Eyebrow Definer in Dark Brunette
– Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
– Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara
– Maybelline Total Temptation Brow Pencil
– Burt’s Bee’s lip balm

In 2019, I want to pan the following makeup products:
– Pan 5 eyeshadows in the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette
– Pan 5 eyeshadows in the ABH Modern Renaissance palette
– Colourpop eyeshadow in Stereo
– Milani Nude lip liner
– MAC Morning Coffee lip liner
– NYX lip liner in Nude
– Annabelle lip liner in Boisenberry
– MAC Amorous lipstick
– Urban Decay Naked lipstick
– Clinique liquid liner
– Colourpop Mr. Bing eyeliner
– Bite Beauty Agave Lip Masks in Candy Cane, Maple, and Natural
– Burt’s Bees Lip Balm
– Tarte Sensual Blush
– Fenty Beauty Foundation in 130
– Rimmel Concealer in 125
– Elf highlighter in Moonlight Pearls
– Essence Make Me Brow

Obviously, if I pan anything not on this list, that would be great as well. I want to make use of my products, so whatever I pan means I got my money’s worth! Hopefully, my 2019 results will be epic. What are you planning on panning this year? Let me know if you would like to see a mid-year results post.

Are They Dupes? Lipstick Edition

I have quite a small makeup collection for a blogger, and somehow accumulated 4 lipsticks that look exactly the same. I don’t know how this happened, but I am here to help you out so you don’t make the same mistake. Continue reading Are They Dupes? Lipstick Edition

Best of Beauty 2017


Apart from books, I accumulated a lot of beauty favourites in 2017. Last year, I discovered new companies, and new products, that have become instant favourites of mine. I feel like 2017 was the year I became the most comfortable with the makeup I wear. Throughout my life I felt self-conscious about what makeup I wore, but last year I always felt confident in all the looks I did. Throughout this year of beauty, here is what I fell in love with.

My Makeup Collection (2017)

Processed with VSCO with hb2 presetI decided that before the new year begins, I would share my current makeup collection. I am someone who loves makeup, but I do not aspire to have a collection like many makeup bloggers. I don’t want to own 500 lipsticks, or 75 palettes. I may get more makeup throughout time, but I never want to own that much.

My Favourite Fall Makeup

IMG_0218Although the weather is nowhere near fall-like, I’m already thinking about fall makeup looks. I tend to go for bolder, and darker looks in the fall and winter. I can still do a bold look in the summer, but it’s a bit harder when you’re sweating your makeup off in the heat. After looking at my makeup collection, I selected a few items that I love to wear during the fall and winter. Continue reading My Favourite Fall Makeup

Makeup Dupe: Colourpop vs. NYX

IMG_5586When buying makeup, I always try to buy things I don’t already have. However, when shopping online, sometimes it can’t be avoided. When I decided to buy Colourpop makeup for the first time, I heard that the Ultra Satin Lip in Frick N Frack was a dupe for Lolita by Kat Von D. Lolita looks very unflattering on me, but I saw Kathleen Lights wear Frick N Frack and it looked gorgeous on her. Obviously, she persuaded me into buying it.
