Project Pan and Products to Use Up in 2017 Update

Hello lovelies! Today I’m back with a long overdue update on the products that are in my project pan and products that I want to use up in 2017. I have used up a few items and made some progress on others. There is one item that I am just getting rid of because it just got old and smells weird.

Let’s start with the one item that I’m just getting rid of. I’m getting rid of the Victoria’s Secret Noir Tease. I’m getting rid of it because the scent changed and just doesn’t smell right. So because of that I’m no longer going to hold on to it.

The next few items are products that I have used up. I have used up the Benefit Porefessional Primer, the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer, the Nivea A Kiss of Mint and Minerals Lip Balm, Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash, and the Aveeno Skin Relief Gentle Scent Lotion. I know I haven’t used up nearly as many items as I would like. The summer has been really hot, and I’ve been in the pool a lot. For me, it just didn’t make sense to put on make up and take it off an hour later.

The rest of the items I have made minimal progress. Like I said I haven’t worn much makeup over the summer and just recently started putting on a little bit of makeup in the last month. I mentioned in another post that in the Chicagoland area we are still in the 80s, which is basically give me the sunscreen and ditch the makeup.

The next group of items that I will probably finish up by the end of the year. I should be able to finish up the E.L.F. HD Under Eye Setting Powder, Maybelline The Falsies Push-Up Drama Waterproof Mascara, NYX butter gloss in Creme Brulee, Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover, OPI Natural Nail Base Coat, Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in White Russian, and MAC All That Glitters eye shadow. I will let you know of Instagram if I finish up anything between now and my next update.  If there is anything that you want to see progress on that I’ve shown in the past, let me know.

I think that’s everything for today. If you would like for me to continue doing posts like these, let me know. I would love to hear from you! Have a great weekend! I will see you in my next post.

September Play! by Sephora Unboxing

Hello lovelies! Today we are digging through my September Play box. I know it has been awhile since I’ve shared what has come in my box. If you want to know what I got the last few months let me know and I can do a short post or Instagram story about them. Anyways, lets find out what is inside my box. So, opening up the box there is a hot pink satin bag that everything is in. It says ‘a change of face’. I like the metaphor Sephora; a change of face like the changing of seasons and temperature.

First up, we have the bonus item that comes in the box. I’m surprised to find a hair product and not a perfume. There is a shampoo and conditioner foil packets from IGK. It is their Hot Girls Shampoo and Conditioner. I don’t mind receiving packets of hair products if it’s a bonus item. If this was actually part of the box I would be bummed that I got a product that I would get maybe two uses out of it.

Next up is the Algenist Power Recharging Night Pressed Serum. It is a solid serum that can be applied all over the face(avoiding the eye area), neck and chest. It smells clean and slightly like coconut or cocoa butter, which I love the scent. I have a couple other night creams that are enough for my skin without additional products, so I will use this when it starts to get a lot colder and my skin is in need of extra treatment and moisture.

Next up there is the Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb. I have been wanting to try out this brand for awhile. I’m definitely looking forward to trying this out. I feel like this would be a great day time moisturizer for me. I feel like this could provide my skin with enough moisture but not make me oily throughout the day.

The last three items are makeup items. There is the Sephora Collection Contour Eye Pencil 12hr Wear Waterproof in Black Lace, Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel in Deep(5), and Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick in Amulet.  The eyeliner is your typical black liner. The real test will be when I apply it to the water line, and see if it runs or smudges. The brow gel I’m curious about. I know that it is in the shade 5 and when I’ve looked at the other brow products by benefit in store, I feel like this shade may be to dark for me. I will test it out see how it will work for me. Last up is the liquid lipstick. I have one other liquid lipstick by Urban Decay, but it is a metallic finish. I’m curious as how the soft matte formula will work for me. I love the shade and is a great everyday type shade for fall.

That’s everything that came in my box. What did you get in your box? Did you get the same items? Or different items? What do you think about not having a perfume sample as your bonus item? If you want me to keep doing this kind of post let me know. Also, let me know if there is something specific you would like to see me do. That’s all for today. Have a great day! I’ll see you in my next post.

Fall 2017 Bucket List

Hello lovelies! I am so excited to be back after taking the summer off. Today is the first day of fall! I couldn’t be more excited that my favorite time of year is here. I do have to say that the weather as yet to catch up with the fact that it is time for leaves changing, crisper air, pumpkin spice lattes, bonfires, and hoodies. It is still hitting 90 degrees here in the Chicagoland area. So in honor of the first day of fall, I’m coming back with my fall bucket list. I had gotten this idea to come up with a “bucket list” from Pinterest, and pulled a bunch of ideas from different posts. I was looking for ideas for something nothing related to the fall time, but thought this would be a fun thing to do and share with all of you. Let’s jump in and see what I will be up to in the coming weeks.

go apple picking

roast marshmallows/s’mores

bake rice crispie treats

That is everything on my list! I will be completing most of these with my boyfriend, family or by myself. If you want to keep up with what I’ll be up to in the coming weeks follow me on Instagram(beautylifeloves31) or Twitter(@jamers731). I’ll be posting updates on those two platforms, and maybe an update on here maybe halfway to Thanksgiving. What are you looking forward to this fall? Is there anything else I should try to do this season? Let me know! Share your ideas in the comments or come say hi on Instagram or Twitter. I’m looking forward to hearing for you!
