My new sunscreen/moisturizer broke me out horribly on the chin, so I figure, why not do a couple of lip swatches today? When I first started wearing lipstick-lipstick (I wore lip glosses and tinted balms throughout college and high school), my go-to was Maybelline Touch of Spice. I wore it to interviews, to my internship, to class, etc… In hindsight, it was too dark on me. Now that I own more lipstick than I can use in a lifetime, I know what colors work for certain occasions.
I want venture out into the world of affordable/drugstore eyeshadows, and what better way to start than with Makeup Revolution’s new Slogan palettes? I ordered two of them, #Slay and No Photos Please, to test out for two weeks. I’ve never been drawn to Makeup Revolution’s eyeshadow palettes, because the color selection is either bizarre or a Naked dupe. But while browsing on ULTA, the colors of these eyeshadows suckered me into doing a haul. Let’s see if the quality holds up to MUR great color choices!
I can never have enough highlighters, so I picked up the J.Cat baked highlighter during an online ULTA haul. Baked formulas aren’t really my favorite, because in my experience, they aren’t that pigmented. And I don’t have time to wet my brush and blend in the morning. #lazygirlproblems. Luckily, I was pleasantly surprised by the pigmentation of this J.Cat Beauty highlighter, and it’s a crime that I haven’t heard anyone talk about this product.
This is so late, but overtime season has started at work and I was not prepared at all to have so little time outside of the office. My three post per week 2017 goal might be ambitious for me, but I’m going to make it work! Over the past year, my makeup collection has probably quintupled (?). I live in the purgatory between regretting buying out on things I don’t need and being stressed by the clutter in my life. Nobody needs this much makeup, right? So, without further ado, onto my Project Pan 2017!
The beautiful shape and affordability drew me to Real Technique’s new Diamond Miracle Sponge. I use their original Miracle Complexion sponge all the time (I even have four backups right now), and it gets the job done. As a disclaimer, I’ve never used a Beauty Blender. I don’t see the point in shelling out $20 for a sponge that has to be replaced in a month or so. While the Diamond Miracle Sponge is expensive for drugstore, it certainly surpasses the original and is still more affordable than a Beauty Blender.
