Project 10 Pan 2012

22 Feb

Hello everyone! This is the first project 10 pan post for this year my gosh I’ve been on and off this more times than a bear attempting to get honey. But I will hopefully stick to it I now know much of my beauty habits (good or bad you decide that).

So I got two versions of it this year: makeup and skincare. Yes surprisingly I am stocked up on skincare products but onto the items themselves.


Items: Physician’s Formula Happy Booster Blush in Rose, Skinfood Buckwheat Loose Powder, Maybelline Popsensational Lipsticks in Citrus Slice and Raspberry Ice, NYC Blushable Creme Stick in South St. Seashell, Maybelline Eyestudio Quad in Spirited Seas, ELF Hypershine Gloss in Bare, MAC Dazzleglass Cream in Perfectly Unordinary, NYC Black eyeliner, Wet ‘n Wild White eyeliner.


Items: LUSH Tea Tree Toner, The Body Shop Camomille Eye makeup remover, Nivea AquaSensation Eye cream, Laneige Water Sleeping Pack_EX, Naruko Job’s Tears Night Jelly, True Blue Spa Apricot & White tea scrub, True Blue Spa Peppermint Face scrub, and Freeman Face mask in Avocado & Clay, Strawberry and Chocolate detox, and Cucumber Peel-off.

My rules are pretty simple I just need to finish up the product and keep the case to show you guys. Every two months I usually do Empties but this time I’ll just seperate out the regular empties with 10 pan items.

If you guys have gone through this let me know in the comments below and for those doing this project let’s motivate each other!

Review: Physician’s Formula Happy Booster Blush

2 Feb

Hello everyone! Here is the other portion of the review: the blush!

Description: A endorphin releasing scent of violets to calm you for a day’s work. The shade is rose a bright pink when swatched.

Review: The have to say that Physician’s Formula have really stepped up their game but the step up in prices just makes my wallet cry (luckily there are sales). I got the shade Rose in the two pack that I bought. It is extremely pigmented thus a lighter hand is needed when applying this blush to the cheeks. Texture is very smooth but as with the bronzer it feels a little bit tightly pressed into the pan making it hard to pick up some product and when you do pick up it’s a little too much. I think the shade is very universally flattering it suits those with yellow, neutral and pink undertones so anyone of any shade can enjoy this blush. Overall, I think that this blush is definately way better than the bronzer and would recommend you pick this up on sale it’s not worth the high price tag especially here in Canada.

Cost: $13-17CDN @ local drugstores and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? Since the blush is better in pigmentation and wear time then the bronzer I say that this is a definite must for those who love cute makeup.

Review: MAC Naturally

16 Jan

Hello everyone! So this is the first time that I have reviewed a MAC limited edition collection (and it is also the first time that I really splurged on a makeup collection). Items reviewed will be 2 Mineralized Eyeshadows, a Mineralized Skin Finish, and a Mineralized Blush. So since there are a few different items this review will be set up differently.

First off the Mineralized Eyeshadows. There is a total of five shades but I picked out just two shades (poor student here) they are $24CDN each.
Daylight is described as a cool-toned lavender shade and In the Sun is a glittery light brown-burgandy shade. Both shades wear for around 6 hours without fading and begins to fade (this is testing with a primer underneath). I found that In the Sun was a little harder to work with and not as smooth as Daylight (perhaps it was the glitter). Both are smooth pigmented and they are in general great shades to play with for a natural look. I haven’t tried using the shadows with water but will definately try in the future.

Next is the Mineralized Blush I have a lot of blushes so I picked out a standout color in this collection. There are three blushes in total but the one I picked up is Fresh Honey the blushes are $27.50CDN.
Fresh Honey is an apricot very orange shade. It is pigmented but can be a bit chalky the wear time is 8 hours and even though it looks scary it is quity wearable.

I saved the best for last the ever coverted Redhead Mineralized Skin Finish. I didn’t pick up Blonde due to the pink undertones so Redhead it was. The cost of these are pretty high $33.50CDN for one I seriously winced when I found out it now takes the place of the most expensive highlighter that I own.
Redhead is described as a warm champagne transitioning into dark pink. The wear time is great around 8 hours, the highlighting effects that it gives is a warm sheen to the skin and looks very natural. The powder is smooth, creamy and very blendable.

Review: ELF Blush and Bronzing Duo

22 Dec

Hello everyone! Man, I am so sorry for all these posts. It’s a bit crazy at my house so posting these will put some pressure off me and keep me occupied for some time.

Description: A blush and bronzer duo similar to the NARS duo in Orgasm and Laguna. The blush is a light pink shade with gold glitters, and the bronzer is a dark brown with gold glitters (luckily not too noticeable).

Review: Could I just ask who actually owns the NARS duo in Orgasm and Laguna? A lot of you? Well I don’t have the duo but whispers on the internet says that the shades are similar as well as the packaging. Personally I’m not a huge fan of blushes with glitters in it but this blush doesn’t show that much glitter on my skin. Same thing goes for the bronzer as I mainly use bronzer to contour but the glitters don’t show up that much on my skin which is nice. I don’t have to worry about reflecting light off as much to the point where I can be a glitter bomb. Wear time is pretty good about 6 hours on my skin (it’s oily but lately it’s been dry due to the weather). I really like this product and it does work to multitask which is great. The packaging is nice and sturdy and the big mirror included is really nice. Overall, I’m going to join the legions of people who absolutely adore this blush and bronzer duo.

Cost: $3USd @ eyeslipsface.com

Would I recommend this product? I would as it is a great everyday blush color and the bronzer works well and who can’t resist the fact that it’s a NARS dupe.

Review: Covergirl Cheekers Blush in Natural Rose

11 Jul

Hello everyone! Another day, another review.

Review: All I can say is wow… I wasn’t expecting this to be bad… like really bad… First off the good things it does give a nice glow to the cheeks (once you really get it on) and is buildable. Now the bad things it has a Noxema scent that can leech out to other products in my little makeup drawer. The pigmentation is really bad it’s barely there, the texture is pretty hard and it’s not easy to pick up the color on a brush (actually you would wonder if you have picked up any at all). Overall, I don’t recommend this it’s not the greatest product out there and I feel that cheaper brands can make a better blush than Covergirl currently.

Cost: $5-8CDN @ Drugstore and Supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? I’m still on the fence about this product as I’ve only tried this shade but if all the other colors are like this one I wouldn’t recommend but if others are different then I would recommend NOT to get this color.
