August Play! by Sephora Unboxing

Hello lovelies! Happy Humpday! Today I’m sharing what I got in my August Sephora Play box. A couple of these products I am excited to try out and the others will be passed on to friends and family. Without further ado, let’s dig in…

Aug Play 2016

That’s everything that came in my Play box this month. I hope you enjoyed digging through the bag with me. I’m definitely looking forward to trying out the eye pencil, mascara and the eye shadow. The two eye products I’m going to pass on to my mom. The scent I feel like it’ll be a great springy summer scent. I’m ready for fall and everything that comes along with it. I probably won’t try this out until spring. If you want a first impression or a full review on these items or any other Play box item let me know! I hope you have a great rest of the week!

July Play! by Sephora

Hello lovelies! Before we get too far into August I want to share with you everything that came in this months Play box. I love the hot pink popsicle on the little bag. I’m really excited about this box. There are definitely a couple of products that I’ve been wanting to try out.

July Play 2016

Products

Nest Citrine .04 oz.- Full Size 1.7 Retails: $68

First Aid Beauty 1.0 oz.- Full Size 4.7 oz. Retails: $24

OUAI wave spray 1.7 oz.- this size Retails: $12

Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Primer .25 oz- Full Size Retails: $39

Blotterazzi by Beautyblender w/ liquid cleanser sample 1 sponge- 2 sponges Retails: $20

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer- Full Size Retails: $30

 That’s everything that came in my July box. I love that the Blotterazzi also included a sample of the liquid cleanser, so its kind of like you get a 2-in-1 product. I also really love that the OUAI way spray came in a size that is actually sold in Sephora stores. I’m excited to try out the Too Faced bronzer and First Aid Beauty cleanser. If you want me to also include what each item would actually cost if it were sold in stores, let me know.  Have a great week! See you in my next post!

Project Pan 2016

Hello lovelies! I got today’s post idea from Ashley Elizabeth on YouTube. I’ll link her channel down below. She doesn’t know me, she has no idea who I am and doesn’t know that I’m doing this post.  Disclaimer: I would say if you’re under the age of 18 some of her videos would be considered inappropriate for your viewing, and there is also some language that some may not appreciate. The one thing that I love about her is how she says whatever she is feeling and just doesn’t care what everyone else is saying or doing.

The idea of a Project Pan is to use what you have. These can be products that you’ve had for a couple of years or just sick of having around but don’t want them to go to waste. You choose at least 10 products, decide how many products you want to finish and set a time frame. For products that you may have a full container of, it may be a good idea to set a goal of getting through half of it. It’s also a good idea to mark where the product is at the very beginning.

I’ve decided to do this to get some use out of my products, and I’m finding myself wanting to purchase new items. I have a limited amount of space for everything and this is my way for creating space for new things. I’ve been on a no buy essentially the last few months but I haven’t exactly been using what I have. I’m going to continue my no buy through the next few months, with the exception of a few items that I will need. I do also receive the Sephora Play! box monthly, so those will also be new products that I will be receiving.

Since this is my first go at this Project Pan and I am giving myself a longer time frame than most people would probably choose. I’ve chosen 15 products to go through starting today August 5th, and I’m giving myself until December 5th to use up or hit pan on at least 10 products. I will give an update every month to track my progress. Most of these products I have had for about 2 years or longer. I know not the most sanitary but these things haven’t gone bad yet. I also realized that quite a few are hard to track how much is left and the rest I’ve marked.
