Project 10 Pan

I've lost count how many times I've tried doing Project 10 Pan and failed miserably, this time I'm determined to stick to it.
I've been doing it for about a week and half and so far so good, I've not bought any makeup related items at all.
I'm including facial skincare products in the count but I'm mainly trying to concentrate on lipsticks and glosses as I've got so many of them.

I've actually already used up a MAC Charged Water 2 tubes of mascara and a tube of lash primer and I have almost finished 2 lipsticks, a gloss, 2 powders and a pot of lipbalm so I'm actually being really good.

i've not really missed buying makeup and I'm enjoing the challange of finishing an item up, I'm even scooping out the excess product in the bottom of the lipsticks.

Is anyone else on Project 10 Pan? How are you finding it?

MAC Warm & Cozy and Love Lace Haul

I know I'm really late posting this, I've had the items a couple of weeks now but just haven't bothered to show you all, very naughty I know.

I don't think either collection is particularly unique but I personally loved Warm & Cozy just because it's full of nice everyday wearable neutrals.
Love Lace I wasn't has keen on as a lot of it his very frosty but I do love the Khol Power pencils and I'm very tempted to go back for Sense Of Style.


Care Blends Essential Oils in Grapefruit + Chamomile - I've only used this once since I got it so I cannot really say how I feel about it yet, it certainly didn't make me oily and did had a little bit of extra moisture but I'm not sure if it's worth £14.

Mineralize All Over Lotion - OMG do I love this or what? It is the best moisturiser I've come across in a long time, very thick in texture so it takes a couple of minutes to absorb but it leaves skin feeling deeply hydrated but not greasy and creates the best base for makeup. The bad part is it's not permanent so I'm gonna have to stock up while it's still available.

Lipglass in 2N - I bought this the last time it came out with the N Collection and while I absolutely loved the color there had been a problem with that particular batch and it when rancid within the space of a month, this new batch has no problem and the color is gorgeous and so worth getting.

Lipstick in Pretty Please - Love the color in the tube but on my lips it just shows up has frost so I cannot use it on it's own, however it looks nice over other light pink lipsticks such as Creme Cup and Angel.

Tinted Lip Conditioner in Feelin' Good - I love this color so much I bought 3 of them and I hardly ever buy backups has I usually have trouble finishing the first one. I'm glad I did cause I've used quite a lot of it already, it's a gorgeous milky pink and it helps tone down my lips while keeping them moisturised.

Mineralize SkinFinish in By Candlelight - I looked at this one and passed on it at first cause it looked way to frosty but I saw a swatch of it somewhere, I can't actually remember were, but it looked so pretty I went back and got it and I'm glad I did cause it's gorgeous. It is very shimmery but not in a greasy way and it's a beautiful peachy pink shade that just suits me so well.

What did everyone else get?

December: The Good and The Bad

I'm late, I know but at least I'm actually posting this instead of missing it like I did last month.
I've completely neglected my blog over Christmas but I'm gonna try and post a lot more, I really want to start reviewing all of my perfumes as I'm really into fragrance at the moment.

The Good

MAC Moisturelush Face Cream & Eye Cream - I've been trying to use up all my half fineshed products and these probably have a month left, thing his the more I use them the more I love them and can see myself buying more when they've gone.
Chanel Pro Lumiere Proffesional Finish Makeup - I bought this last month and have been using it pretty much ever since, it gives the perfect full coverage but with a dewy finish.
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - I love this product and keep going back to it, it's a satin finish powder as opposed to matte so it makes skin look like "skin".
L'Oreal Duuble Extension Renewal Mascara - I've been using this and the matching lash serum and I can honestly say it's made my lashes thicker but not longer, it's a really nice mascara but it dries out quite quickly.
Bourjois Bronzing Powder - Looks like chocolate, smells like chocolate and give the most natural looking glow to the skin.

The Bad

Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser - This is actually an okay face wash but I doesn't perform to my standards. I've used glycolic cleansers in the past and they have worked miracles for my skin leaving it clear and radiant, I shall use this up and never look at it again.
