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!

Finished Products #2

7 Jun

Hello everyone! A finished products post as tomorrow you shall be bombarded by something more sinister… just wait till tomorrow to find out. Anyways, I only finished 17 products so nothing to brag about but after a collection picture this it feels like an accomplishment.

Review: Nivea Lipbalms

1 Mar

Hello everyone! This is a compilation review as I have more than one type of lipbalm from Nivea so they are all put in one.

Review: Since there are more than one lipbalm I will break the reviews up into their respective type I have also placed them in an order that goes from really like to dislike.

Hydro Care (blue) – overall a really great lip balm has a vanilla sort of scent that isn’t too overpowering and goes on the lips very smoothly.

Milk & Honey (light yellow) – I use this as a night time lip treatment as it has a heavier feel than most lip balms. Goes on with shine and can sometimes be a little tacky on the lips. Scent-wise it smells much more wax honey than a nice blend of honey and milk.

Strawberry Tinted (red) – This is a tinted lip balm and works very well the color is a very bright color (great for spring/summer looks). I found this not to be moisterizing enough and there are glitters in the lip balms so it does not slide on as smoothly compared to Hydro Care (blue). The tint can last all day as it can also work as a lipstain.

Sunscreen (bright yellow) – I really disliked this lip balm it literally felt like solid sunscreen for the lips. It was not moisterizing at all and it turned my lips whiter which should not happen (imagine putting on white lipstick). Tacky and hard to put on.

Price: Ranges from $1.50-3.00 CDN from various drugstores

Would I recommend these products? I would recommend the top three (hydro care, milk & honey, strawberry tint) but the only one that I will be repurchasing will be the Hydro care as it works very well for a great price. I would not recommend the sunscreen one as mentioned above it was not a lipbalm but solid sunscreen for the lips.

Products I regret buying – Makeup

3 Jan

Hello everyone! This is a photo of makeup products that I regret buying. I’m also going to be doing one for skincare as well but that’s something totally different. So these are the products that I regret buying in 2010.

Products include:

The Body Shop Cheek Stamps (01 and 02) & Tea tree concealer (02)
Sally’s beauty inspired by Carmindy cream blushes (Ginger, Sunrise)
Wet ‘n’ Wild Blush (Spotlight Peach)
Stila Lipglaze (Cranberry, Candy, Plum Fairy & Starfruit) & Lip gloss (unknown bright pink color)
Revlon Colorstay Foundation (totally put off liquid foundation) & Mineralized Skin Finish (Brightening)
Maybelline Age Rewind Foundation & Colorsensation lipstick (pink please)
N.Y.C. pot lipgloss (watermelon) & Tinted Lip slider (sugar coated)
Clinique brow powder (shaping taupe)
Joe Fresh Lip gloss (nude)
MAC Viva Glam Gaga
Rimmel Moisture Renew (Nude delight)
Covergirl lipstick (it’s your mauve)
Bath & Body Works Liplicious (Grapefruit)
Nivea lipbalms (Cherry tint, caregloss and shine, sun protection)

That is a lot of product but then again I did buy many things in 2010. Hopefully after 2011 is over there won’t be as many products. In the meanwhile I am going to be trying to finish up these products then I can go buy new ones.

October Stuffies

15 Oct

Hello everyone! I’ve been putting off this post for a while. It’s a bunch of items that I have purchased lately… Christmas stuff unfortunately isn’t included because if it was it would take more than one photo and I’m lazy to present Christmas stuff nicely. ^_^ Anyways here we go! Most of the stuff purchases was from the 20x the points at Shoppers Drug Mart so most of the makeup products were bought at the same time (and they were on sale too!).

As you can see a bunch of masks (1 face, 2 hair), Nivea Lip Balms, 2 Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks (Nude Delight, Vintage Pink), 3 Covergirl Trios (Dance Party, Shimmering Sands, Firecracker) and Lipstick (It’s your Mauve -matte finish not my favourite), Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Foundation in Nude, Cucumber Eye gels, Joe Fresh Blush (Hydrangea), the Body Shop Tea tree facial wash, tea tree oil, tea tree concealer, and Vitamin C microdermabrasion tube.

Wow that sure looks like a lot… I hope to use them and give them lots of love. ^_^
