Everything I’ve tried from BITE Beauty

Everything I’ve tried from BITE Beauty

I am a lipstick fiend. Sorry, I can’t help it. I love all of the bright colours. I love the way lipstick makes you feel. Because of this, I have accumulated many, many lip products. One of my favourite brands is BITE Beauty. BITE Beauty […]

October & November Empties

October & November Empties

Clean & Clear Deep Cleansing Astringent I’ve been using some variation of this product for over a decade. I will sometimes buy the store brand, it really depends what’s on sale. I got this one at Winner’s. I think it actually the UK version of […]

August & September Empties

August & September Empties

I finished up a lot of products in the last two months, which is great. For the rest of the year, and hopefully into 2020 I will focus on finishing up products I already have instead of using 3 or 4 different face washes or primers all at the same time. I’m going to try and avoid buying staple products I already have in my collection, and not to open things just to open them.

Here is what I used up in August and September.

Colourpop No Filter Concealer in Light 14

I’m a big fan of this concealer. It is extremely affordable and I think it works really well. It provides nice coverage without ever looking or feeling too cakey. Would I buy it again? Yes! I’m already using a new one!

Revolution Beauty Conceal and Define Concealer in C4

This was probably my 3rd or 4th tube of this concealer, so obviously I liked it. But I think I’m going to stick with the Colourpop concealer from here on out. I just feel the coverage is a bit better and it is slightly cheaper. Would I buy it again? Maybe, but not right now.

Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara

This is my favourite high-end mascara. This one was close to being finished, but not completely done. I dropped it and the packaging broke in a way where it couldn’t be closed again. I’ve gone through a couple of deluxe samples of this mascara that I get in gift sets or as point perks. I have another one in my back up bin currently, but I think I need to finish a couple of mascaras before I open it. Would I buy it again? Yes, but not right now.

Love, Beauty and Planet Shampoo and Conditioner in Blooming Colour

I received this as a sample product in the mail. I thought it was a nice shampoo and conditioner. It made my hair feel soft and smooth. The scent is nice but a little overwhelming. This kind in particular was rose-scented. Would I buy it again? Probably not.

Sephora Collection Coconut Water Moisturizing Cream

This was my favourite moisturizer. Unfortunately for me, this is discontinued. I loved how light it was. And it was super affordable. Let me know if there’s any dupes for this one! Would I buy it again? I would if I could.

First Aid Beauty Coconut Smoothie Primer

I really love this primer. The full-size is pretty expensive. This is my third little tube of it, I’ve gotten a few in sample sets. I really should buy the larger version. It’s nice and moisturizing, and the scent is nice. Would I buy it again? Yes. Once I get through my other primers! I might commit to the big one!

First Aid Beauty Pure Skin Face Cleanser

I got the big tube of this in an Ulta 21 Days of Beauty sale for an incredible price after going through a couple of tubes of the small version. This is a perfect daily cleanser. It’s not harsh at all, and it does a good job. Would I buy it again? Yes, I have another tube in my stash – just trying to finish up some other cleansers!

Seven Deadly Skins Melon Body Scrub

I got this years ago on super sale at a nearby drug store. And it’s fine. It’s a nice body exfoliator, but it’s nothing incredibly special. The melon scent was just a little too much for me! Would I buy it again? No.

Neutrogena Deep Cleaning Clay Cleanser and Mask

I received this cleanser/mask combo in an Influenster box a while back. I only really used it as a cleanser. This mask worked really well for me. If I was having a problem skin day, I would just use this in the shower and my skin was noticeably different the next day. I never found it too harsh either. Would I buy it again? Yes!

Myro Natural Deodorant in Chill Wave

This deodorant was sent to me to try out as they sponsored my podcast. (This post is not sponsored though!) I had never tried a natural deodorant before, I’m a sweater so I didn’t think it would work for me. It did work for me! I was pretty impressed with it. I did find near the end of the tube it irritated my underarms. Would I buy it again? Possibly.

The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer

I like this primer. It’s super affordable, which is great for me. I find it smooths my skin out nicely. This is the second bottle I’ve gone through. Would I buy it again? Yes.

Neutrogena Essentials Night Moisturizer

This is a nice, thick night time moisturizer. I liked using it, and it lasted a long time. I did sometimes find it a little too heavy. I think it’s more fitting for dry skin. Would I buy it again? Maybe!

Batiste Dry Shampoo

I don’t go through a whole lot of dry shampoo, but I like having a smaller size on hand for when I do need it. Batiste is obviously a very popular brand for dry shampoo. And I think it’s fine! Would I buy it again? Probably.

John Frieda Go Blonder Spray

This spray has been my ride-or-die forever. It’s what gives my naturally brunette hair a nice ~blondeish~ appearance. I couldn’t even tell you how many of these bottles of this I’ve gone through. Would I buy it again? Over and over.

June/July Empties

June/July Empties

Okay, so what if August is almost over??? It’s never too late to let you know about all the products I’ve used up in the last few months. You may argue there is actually never a good time to tell you about them. But I […]

March Empties

March Empties

I am currently trying to pan some of my makeup products, but here are some of the things I finished up in the month of March. Joico Blonde Life Brightening Shampoo I got this shampoo as part of a set for my birthday last year […]

Project Pan 2019

Project Pan 2019

I have a lot of makeup products that I need to use. I get a deep sense of satisfaction when I finish products up. I can pretty easily finish up foundations, concealers, lotions, and anything else I’m using on a regular basis. I have a harder time with lipsticks, eyeshadows, blushes, etc. because I’m always wanting to try different ones.

I thought maybe I should take inspiration from the Project Panning community and pick out a few products to try and use up by the end of 2019.

Here’s what I’m going to try and pan:

Foil Pack Samples – I’ve always had a weird thing about hording samples and never using them. I don’t know why. I put them away and never use them, telling myself that maybe one day I will. The biggest problem is that I just kind of forget I have them. I put these right on my vanity where I can see them in hopes that I will indeed use them.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop – I got this mini version of the infamous Champagne Pop as a 100 point perk from Sephora. There has been so much hype about this highlighter that I didn’t really think I would love it THAT much. But I do. It’s fantastic. It’s buildable, so you can use it for a subtle glow or a really popping highlight. I do have a slightly bigger mini or this, so I won’t feel too bad about using this one up. Plus, the packaging on this cheap mini broke so it’s not great to travel with anymore.

Tarte Tartelette Tease Palette – This is my most-used palette by far. I love how small it is, and I take it on every trip I go on. You can create a surprising amount of looks with it, considering how small it is. I’ve had it for a long time and have put a nice dent in a couple of the shades, but I really want to hit pan in this palette this year. I’ve never hit pan on an eyeshadow before.

Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Glacé – This came as part of the Sephora birthday set last year, and it is a perfect mauvey-nude. It’s a very flattering colour and is extremely wearable, so I think it will be able to use this quite a lot.

MAC Cosmetics Mini Lipstick in Velvet Teddy – This was another super hyped product that I bought into. I love MAC lipsticks. I don’t reach for this colour a lot, and I’m not sure why. It’s a really nice beige that can work with a lot of eyelooks. Again, because it’ a mini I think I might be able to get through this one.

Benefit Cosmetics Powders in Hoola Matte Bronzer and Rockateur Blush – I got these two powders in a holiday set a couple years ago and I still use it fairly regularly. As you can see, there is a pretty good dent in the bronzer, but I tend to only use it as a contour shade. I think I could use it quicker by also using it as a bronzer. The blush shade is a really nice subtle pink that is nice on the daily.

NYX Concealer Jar – I like this concealer to cover up blemishes. It’s creamy and easy to blend. I bought a back up of this already and I;m not even halfway through this one. I’ve been going lighter with foundation lately and going heavier on concealer. I think I can use this product up faster if I use it like that.

November Empties

November Empties

I’ve been trying to make an effort to use up a lot of my products lately. I am a bit of a hoarder. But I bought them to use them, so here we go. If I’ve managed to finish something it usually means I liked […]
