New year, new collaboration! This is another brainchild of miss Ingrid (aka Curly.Spring.Blossom) who approached me with a 10 week long blog series called Project Focus 10. The idea of this series is to focus on beauty products to try to either use them up, or give them more attention:
• 10 weeks
• 10 beauty products we have never reviewed, that we want to focus on or hit pan
• 10 different product categories
There are 4 of us doing this collab so that means we’ll be showcasing 40 products! How awesome is that? 🙂
Today is the introduction to the 10 products! Mine are:
Most of my products are fairly new to me, not necessarily ones I’m trying to hit pan on. They’re just ones that I will be paying more attention to, and report on my thoughts as I use them:
1. Smashbox Double Exposure palette
This was redeemed for using Optimum Points in November and remains untouched. I keep waiting for the “perfect” moment… I’m silly, I know.
2. Clinique Pop Lip Colour in #2 Bare Pop
This was also redeemed for in November but unlike the palette, I busted this puppy open right away and have been using it quite often.
3. Guerlain Lingerie de Peau BB
I’ve had this for about a year and it’s been neglected – I’m focusing on using this up!
4. Shu Uemura brow:sword
I went to the Shu Uemura counter to replace my HG brow pencil, the Hard Formula pencil, but I was talked into trying this one – I use a brow pencil every day so I’ll report on how I find this one compares to the Hard Formula.
5. L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly mascara
I’ve had this sitting in my stash for a year at least – I’ve finally opened it up.
6. Nars Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder
This has been waiting in the wings for the Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder to be finished and now it’s finally its turn to be used!
8. Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream
I’ve had this in my stash unopened for over a year. It’s winter time now, so it’s a good time to bust this out for my parched skin.
9. Orly Nailtrition
Again, like the Nars powder, this has been waiting to be opened as I finish up an old favourite (Witchcraft nail hardener, which I used up in December) and finally its time has come.
10. Muji Cut Cotton Ecru
I’m taking a break from my HG Shiseido Facial Cotton to give the Muji ones a try – I bought this pack in July and it has been patiently waiting for me to open it up.
Those are my 10 items for Project Focus – have you tried any of them? Each week I will review one of the items and provide an update on the rest as we go through all 10 weeks.
