Short Hiatus

16 Oct

Hello everyone! Sorry for not posting but things have picked up at school and I won’t be able to be posting anything for the next two-three weeks. There are things that I have to do and lots of things that need to be taken care of so please don’t think that I’m neglecting my blog. In the meantime I will leave you with a song that I’ve been playing nonstop on repeat.

Project Update: Month 4

4 Oct

Hello everyone! Here is the update for September I think I did pretty well considering that it was my birthday month and I tend to go crazy with purchasing myself makeup. Here is the damage this month:

So only three products which is awesome!!! I have been enjoying my makeup collection and have been really happy with my new purchases. So I purchased the Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick in 476 Plaza which is a really great moisturizing shiny fuchsia shade; Dior Bonne Etoile Eye Shadow Quint my first Dior eye palette and I am really happy with this because I don’t have any shade in my eyeshadow collection that comes close to how beautiful these shades are; and the last is Makeup Forever’s Lip line perfector because I don’t have any lipliners needed one for the wedding this month. I have been enjoying these products the past month and am really glad that they are in my collection.

Face masks… I have developed a love-hate relationship with the sheet masks… sometimes they are lovely but sometimes they aren’t but I have been trying to whittle down my collection and hopefully by the time December rolls around I will be proud to say that I am sheet-mask free!

I wanted to try something different for this month because I had an enlightening talk with my little sister about the amount of makeup that I have. You see I have more makeup coming in than coming out therefore my stash is increasing every month instead of decreasing the amount of products. Therefore this month I wanted to try to purchase only three product and save my money for Black Friday/Cyber Monday and Sephora Friends & Family sale in November. We will see what happens so that will be all in next months’ update. In the meantime, I will focus on using my makeup and reviewing all the products that are not limited edition in my collection.

So I hope that you enjoyed this update I feel like the year is just flying by with so many things happening at once and all other aspects as well. I hope that by the time this project is done in December I am a little wiser in the purchasing department and will be able to figure out what I would like to do Resolution wise in January.
