Project Pan 12 Collab: The END

What an epic journey! When I first agreed to do Project Pan, I thought it was going to be FUN. Oh how wrong I was. This is the song that went through my head (sang to the tune of “The Song That Never Ends“):

This is the Collab that never ends
It just goes on and on my friends
I agree to doing it, not knowing what it was
And I’m wearing the same makeup for 3 months because…
{repeat from top}

😆 I’m teasing. I did enjoy doing Project Pan, especially doing it alongside my collab buddies! 😀

And I’m really proud of myself for sticking to these products and diligently using them 5 out of 7 days, at minimum.

Black Friday Haul 2016

As is the tradition, every Black Friday, I try to reason with myself to not get too excited about the deals because they’re usually not THAT great, but then it all goes out the door once I’m actually at the mall!

Can you believe that I bought all this in the span of just one hour at the mall? 😮 Have you ever seen those shopping spree prizes where kids get to run through Toys R Us and grab as many toys as possible within 5 minutes? I wish they had that for Sephora. 😆

PP12: Cargo HD Pressed Powder in #20

I purposely left this one last for the Project Pan update, since this was slightly different from the rest of the items in that I opened a brand new product at the onset of the project, in an attempt to pan it in 12 weeks.

A face powder is one of those products that I use daily, and I was curious how much product I can go through in 3 months.

Stash Dash: Nov 20 – 26

It officially feels like Christmas to me now! And so, it’s back to the Christmas theme on the blog. 🙂 I thought about drawing a new one for this year but laziness overcame me so it’s the same one as last year. If you’re new to the blog, then it’ll be new to you! 😉

Here are the blog posts from last week, in case you missed any of them due to turkey + stuffing + pumpkin pie induced coma:

Project Pan: MAC Custom Quad with All That Glitters, Patina, Satin Taupe and Romp

I love eye shadows and these are some of my all time favourites! The evidence is in the HOLE I made in the pan! 😀

Project Pan Inspired Finale + GIVEAWAY

YEAH! I WON! Better luck next time, losers! 😛

(Thanks Grieta!!!)

TO Beauty 'n Beyond

Good morning my lovelies. I have been MIA due the motherhood and immune system failures. I will try to catch up, as I have so many posts I want to finish and share with you.

As you can tell by the title, I’m wrapping up my Project Pan Inspired. Before I do that, I want to say thanks to Stashy from Stash Matters and Jodi from A Brash Attitude for an unintentional inspiration. It was a fun project that I will probably repeat in the future, what a great way to use up the forgotten products in your stash. Let me tell you, that it was challenging at times.

During the PPI I was able to finish quite a bit of products, mostly skincare. That makes me happy, as now I can switch to the ones, I really love.

In this picture you can see the products, I’m still working on…

MyLipAddiction Beauty Podcast: HippyLip Part DEUX

Happy Thanksgiving to my American pals! While you’re digesting your turkey dinner, have a listen to the second part of our chit chat with HippyLip (the token American!) – this time it’s 110% about BEAUTY! 😀
mylipaddiction_podcast_hippylip_2
We chat with HippyLip about all the packages she recently received in the mail – it was like Christmas came early at her house! 😀

* The feature image is from the MAC collaboration with Cindy Sherman in 2011. It was a fun, colourful collaboration and Cindy Sherman herself is a fascinating person, but the promotional images for the collection are hideous!

OPI Cosmo with a Twist

I was reminded about this nail polish when I saw Rachael of HelplessWhistDrying post about OPI Russian Navy since I’ve seen comparisons between OPI Russian Navy, OPI Ink, and OPI Cosmo with a Twist.
opi_cosmo_with_a_twist_2
I’d say Cosmo with a Twist is like a lovechild of Russian Navy (navy) and Ink (more purple) – it appears as both purple and navy with a hefty dose of shimmer.  This colour was released as part of the OPI Starlight collection for Holiday 2015.

PP12: MAC Eye Shadows in All That Glitters, Patina, Satin Taupe, Romp

Yay, it’s finally a focus on the MAC eye shadow quad! 😀 I’m not supposed to pick a favourite out of my Project Pan items (because the other items would get jealous) but I’m going to admit that I love these eye shadows just a teeny tiny more. Shhhh. 😉

This is a MAC Pro Palette that I chose each colour myself, they are: All That Glitters, Patina, Satin Taupe, Romp:

Sadly, Romp is discontinued. But the other 3 are still readily available!

Stash Dash: Nov 13 – 19

It was nice to have a slightly slower pace on the blog this past week! I’ll be continuing with 2 or 3 posts a week until the end of November.

Here are the posts that when up last week, in case you were too preoccupied with watching the Super Moon:

Project Pan: MAC Powder Blush in Cubic

Using this blush daily has really made me appreciate it again! After Project Pan is over, I’ll likely not touch this blush for another 6 months though, since I’ll be so tired of it! 😉

Sephora VIB Sale Fall 2016 Haul

And here’s the reckoning. Truth time: I placed 3 orders online and made 1 in-store purchase. 😀
sephora_vib_haul_nov_2016_2
I requalified for VIB Rouge for next year again! But, not because of my own purchases, but my friends pooled their purchases with mine (I’d say the breakdown was 30% me, 70% them). At this rate, I’ll requalify for VIB Rouge every year! 😆 I’ll just showing the items I bought for myself, not ones for my friends.
