18 Before 2018 – Update 1

Hey Everyone!

The first month of this project pan is done and dusted! I am excited to see what progress I have made. Just as I was taking the photos for this post, I realised there were some products I have hardly touched, so during March I am going to make a bigger effort to use those products!

Lip Balms

I used up only 1 lip balm this month and I am still super happy about it, as it is still the start of down-sizing my collection. Something that bothered me though is I swear I found another 3-5 floating around. So hopefully I can really start to dent this collection.Wearing lip balm at work has really been helping, so hopefully I can add more used lip balms to the collection next month.

Finished: Maybelline Baby Lips – Watermelon

Foundations

I have almost finished up my NARS All Day Luminous foundation and I am so happy about that! By the end of next month I will easily have that finished and will be well onto my way on the next one. I am moving onto the Australis Stay Put Foundation to use for work.

Hand Cream

Another category that I used up a product in! I think the one I was using though had expired as it was not as nice as I remember it being when I first started using it. But either way it is finished! I am finding that I am quickly working out which hand creams I like, and which ones just don’t work for me.

Finished: Soap and Glory Hand Food

Mascara

I finished a mascara and straight up threw one out because I hated it. I finally tried the Rimmel London mascara that had argon oil in it and just HATED IT. I don’t have much trouble with mascaras, but this transfered on me, and it was not even a hot day. I have moved on to other mascaras and I find that I am really missing my Tarte Lights Camera Lashes mascara, so I might have to make a Tarte order to have it back in my life.

Finished: Tarte Lights Camera Lashes, Rimmel London

Jeffree Star Cosmetics – Redrum

I used this once this month, so there isn’t really much for me to comment on. Sorry!

Sample Lip Products

I have been wearing these, but so far have not really made a dent in them. It is a little hard when I am working most of the time, or just staying home. But if I am just out doing errands I will generally reach for one of these. I need to pick one to focus on and see how I go, but hopefully they will start to be finished up.

Femme Fatale Cosmetics – Secret Shiney and Fire Opal (samples)

Left – Starting point         Right – Current

I can’t really tell how much progress I have made with Fire Opal, but that is ok, but I don’t really think I used it much through Feb. Secret Shiney on the other hand is starting to look loved and that makes me so happy! I have used this a lot more then I thought I would and even included it in some future looks, which I think is what has helped the most in using up this product. Either way, it is so nice to be able to see how much of a pigment I have used!

Rimmel London Blush – Pink Rose

I honestly can’t really tell how much I have used, it sort of looks like that pattern is finally starting to go away. So I will take that as a win! I use this everyday I work and that has been the biggest help. I still love this blush and have no problems wearing it all the time!

Urban Decay Naked Palette

Now I remember mentioning in my original post, but I will again, saying that the picture on the left was older then what I had originally started with, but I don’t mind as it still shows just how much I have used. I am so proud of the progress I have made on this palette and continuing to do. I have now switched up what shadows I use for work so hopefully there is more evidence of use in the next update.

Models Prefer NUDE Palette

I’m gonna be honest. I have not used this palette, looked at this palette, or even thought of this palette. Again though, as I mentioned in my original post, I wont really be using this palette until I have worked through my Urban Decay Palette a bit more.

Lipsticks, Lip Liner and Eyeliner

17078136_10212126546058097_1865219094_n

Rimmel London Red Fever

Honestly have not worn this. I think if I have not touched this by next month I am going to de-clutter it. I have had it for so long and I am clearly just not reaching for it.

M.A.C Mystical Lipstick LE

I am surprised to see progress on this as I do not remember wearing it! Either way, it is nice to see some progress on it. Hopefully I can continue working on it throughout March!

M.A.C. Girl About Town Lipstick

I clearly haven’t worn this lately, but I still love this shade. Sadly, I am not as drawn to pink lipstick as I once was.

Estee Lauder Tea Rose Lipstick

I will be honest, I did wear this in Feb, but not nearly enough to make this much progress, I was out shopping and this wound up while still in the case and so smooshed itself into the lid. I have since cleaned it up, but I suppose this is more my starting point now.

Max Factor Rose Lipliner

I honestly thought I had made less progress than this! I am so excited to see that progress! I am finding that this is actually a really good lip liner. It does not take a lot of product to cover my lips and I am more then happy to wear this by itself.

Rimmel London Nude Eyeliner

The one product I am probably the least surprised to see progress on. I have been making such an effort to work through this and I am glad to see how much that is paying off! Hopefully I can make even more progress next month!

Kat Von D Ink Liner – Trooper

I did use this in Feb for a makeup look, I don’t know how I feel about the felt tip as it did feel like it was drying up on me. But that could have been because of how much shadow I was trying to layer this over. Even then, I am still not a fan of this liner but I want to get my moneys worth!

With that, it brings us to the end of my first update! I am so proud that I have actually made a dent in a few of these items. It gives me real hope that I will be able to work through these products and get rid of a lot by the end of the year!

If you are doing a project pan, I would love to hear about it!

18 before 2018

Hey Everyone,

I mostly failed my 17 before 2017 and that was because I set the challenge to be too hard. While I didn’t hit pan or even come close to finishing some of those products I did finish others. But starting this challenge inspired me to continue and I have learnt from my mistakes. So this time I have given myself a whole year to finish products! Because of that, some of the products I list will be more general, because I am always trying to actually work through the products I have and find my holy grail!

Lip Balms

img_2409

A continuing theme from for other project pan is to work on my lip balm collection. I am constantly trying to figure out how many I have and I am just going to settle on 18+ which is simply too many! The aim is to wittle that number down to around 5 or so. I have figured out which brands I am loving at the moment so I only want them floating around. Thankfully I use lip balm a lot at work so lets hope I can make a good dent in this collection!

Foundation

16295937_10211790611939954_2144019860_n

As you can see I have a few, well, to me this is a few and it makes me a little unsettled to see all of these sitting on top of my vanity. So I have made it my mission to use up most of these! At the moment I only really want to keep the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation and re-purchase the Kat Von D Lock It Foundation. But that opinion might change throughout the year. For work I am wearing the NARS All Day Luminous foundation because I was sucked in with the YouTube hype and actually really dislike this foundation.

Hand Cream

16237682_10211790611539944_645393303_n

Ah, hand cream, one of the many products that I keep buying thinking I will actually get into the habit of using it. Well, this year has to be the year, because the last thing I want is to see all those products going off in my cupboard. Hopefully this hand cream, along with many others, will be used up by the end of the year!

Mascara

16244477_10211790612059957_1021392455_n.jpg

I keep telling myself, no more mascara, you already have enough and I think this is the proof that I need that I do indeed have to many just sitting about. All of these are just my unopened mascaras. So clearly I am set for the year. Hopefully most of these will go throughout the year, whether because I loved them or simply hated them, we will find out!

Jeffree Star Cosmetics – Redrum

16216261_10211790612379965_1731540419_n

Ah, my beautiful Redrum from Jeffree Star, there is nothing wrong with this lipstick, I just feel that I should start working on this as it’s from the original release. I have also missed wearing red! Hopefully wearing Redrum will get my back into the swing of wearing a red. I am also interested to see how long this will actually take to use up, I haven’t worn it many times, that I remember, so I am looking forward to seeing when exactly I finish it.

Sample Lip Glosses

16237384_10211790611699948_1083651209_n

I did not realise how many sample lip glosses I had! As with the general theme, I want to use them up. I have never used up a lipgloss before so I am interested to see how this goes! Also interesting to note that they are nearly all the same colour haha!

Sample Eyeshadows – Femme Fatale Cosmetics – Fire Opal & Secret Shiney

16237556_10211790611739949_159489893_n

One of the true challenges for this project pan. I want to work through some pigments. I know there isn’t much in these samples, but they are also not colours that I wear everyday. I hope to be able to work through these, and maybe move onto other shadows throughout the year. I love my Femme Fatale pigments and so I am interested to see what looks I can create with these shadows.

Rimmel London Blush in Pink Rose.

16238049_10211790611859952_845962917_n

Probably an impossible feat, but I am going to try! I only want to hit pan on this product, if I get any hints of silver I will be immensely proud of myself. Once I had decided to start this project pan, I took this out and put it on top of my vanity, so I have been using it for a week already. Fingers crossed I can hit pan, these blushes are pigmented and beautiful!

Urban Decay Naked Palette

14801243_10210794106307936_1810303158_n

Still at it with this bad boy, I have nothing against this palette, I will probably repurchase it because I enjoy the shadows so much. I just want to work through more of it. The image above is older, as I have also hit pan on the shade Naked, due to using it as a transition shade for work. By the end of the year I want to have used more of the darker shadows in the palette. If not, I don’t really know what I will do with the palette, but I am sure I will think of something!

Models Prefer NUDE Palette

16244236_10211790612539969_1491460982_n

To not limit myself to mostly one palette throughout the year, I have also decided to add in this palette. It has received no love even though I have heard only good things about it! My main goal with this palette is to actually get some good use out of it. I already know which shades will get the most love, which is exciting in its own right!

Lipsticks, Lip Liner and Eyeliner

16295643_10211790713142484_239576981_n

I unashamedly took the idea to track these products in my Bullet Journal from Pastel Sparkles (her project pan linked). I love this idea and I feel it is a lot easier to track and also more encouraging when you can actually mark and see how much you have used! I also like how the products have marked my page, they brings some colour to the layout! I am most excited about finishing Girl About Town by MAC, simply because it would be the first lipstick I ever finished, and it is also the first MAC lipstick I ever bought.

Kat Von D Ink Liner – Trooper

IMG_1493

This poor sod makes a return. A product that I did not intend to pick up but for the life of me I am determined to use. I HATE using this on my eye, I don’t know how I used to love felt tip liners, but oh well. I mostly plan to use this for makeup looks that I want to do. It will be interesting to see how this lasts! But I think if by the end of the year it still isn’t finished. I will probably just declutter it, as I simply don’t love it as much as my other liners.

Finally, that is my 18 before 2018. I feel confident with most of these products, and because I have given myself just under year to complete this challenge, I know I will be able to work through most of them. If by the end of the year, I have only finished 10 products, that is more then OK! Because it is 10 products that are no longer floating around in my collection.

In regards to keeping myself accountable and you updated on my progress, I will most likely only post once a month, otherwise you will get sick of hearing about my project! But make sure to keep an eye out on my Instagram as I am sure that I will get excited and post some progress shots there.

My Makeup Story Tag!

Hey Guys!

Recently my beautiful friend Sarah from Pastel Sparkles did this tag and I thought it would be fun to do as well. This tag has 10 questions which I will also list at the bottom so if you want to do this tag as well you can just copy and paste them!

1. When did you first start getting into make up?

I sort of have two answers for this, because I remember when I was a lot younger being obsessed with makeup. I distinctly remembering being IN LOVE with a grape lip balm. It died off though because my mum did labour work, so because she wasn’t wearing it, I didn’t wear it. My current obsession started in 2012 when I moved and had a work college who was also into makeup! My interest exploded, and here now I am.

2. What was the first make up you bought?

Going on from my current obsession I would say it was an Estee Lauder foundation, I don’t remember what it was called but I know it is discontinued, which saddens me because it was the best colour match I ever had.

3. What is the newest/oldest items in your collection?

Oldest: Maybe my Inglot eyeshadows? I don’t remember because honestly most of it is pretty new.

Newest: Rimmel London Lasting Finish Foundation, bought because I ran out of my beloved Kat Von D Lock-it foundation. So far I’m loving it though, so I can’t complain too much! (Thanks again Sarah for recommending this to me!)

4. Who is your celebrity make up idol?

Celebrity-celebrity, no one. I don’t really follow that world much because I don’t want to become a ‘crazy fan’, these are just my feelings towards that. YouTube-celebrity would be Nikki Tutorials, Jaclyn Hill and Glam and Gore, all for different reasons.

5. Who is your favourite YouTube guru?

It’s Keerstin and Tati, they are both down to earth and tell it to you like it is. These two are about the only opinions I truly trust (in regards to YouTubers)!

6. What is a look/trend that you wish you could pull off?

All the crazy lid space eye looks, my eye lids fold so I can’t replicate them. Also all the amazing dark eyeshadow makeup looks. I NEED TO PRACTICE THOSE!!!

7. Any make up disasters?

Not really? I had been fully invested in YouTube videos when I re-entered the beauty world. That being said though, bleeding lipstick/ lipgloss is always a disaster and there have been a couple of times where it has bleed really badly. I was so upset because there was nothing a could do and trying to fix it only made it worse 😦

8. What’s your favourite make up brand?

One brand in particular? I don’t know, I use a lot of different brands. One I do trust a lot though would be NARS, I know they can be expensive (I refuse to pay $67 dollars for the Sheer Glow Foundation), but they are worth it!

9. What is your favourite make up tip/trick that you wish you knew sooner?

Matte Shadows in the crease look a lot better then a shimmer everywhere. Even though I love shimmer, a matte crease makes the shadow pop!

10. Which 5 products could you not live without?

  1. Benefit Gimme Brow – Light/ Medium
  2. Jeffree Star Cosmetics – Liquid Lipsticks
  3. Urban Decay Primer Potion – Original
  4. Setting Spray – In general
  5. NARS Translucent Setting Powder – Loose or Pressed

 

And that is everything! This was really fun and quick to do. I am so glad Sarah found this tag and shared it. If you end up doing this tag please send me a link or tag me because I would love to read it!

As promised here are all the questions together:

Questions:

1. When did you first start getting into make up?

2. What was the first make up you bought?

3. What is the newest/oldest items in your collection?

4. Who is your celebrity make up idol?

5. Who is your favourite YouTube guru?

6. What is a look/trend that you wish you could pull off?

7. Any make up disasters?

8. What’s your favourite make up brand?

9. What is your favourite make up tip/trick that you wish you knew sooner?

10. Which 5 products could you not live without?

 

Don’t forget I would love to hear from you if you do this tag!

Green Shift Makeup Look!

Hey Guys!

I have been loving a darker look recently, and I am feel so inspired by winter! I am super happy with how my eyes turned out in this look, but not sure how I feel about my lips, I wanted to do something different but improvised.

IMG_1975

My idea behind this look was that I wanted green eyes with a red crease. The hardest part of this was actually trying to get the red crease, as I wanted it to be matte. I found that the shadows that I thought would work for me didn’t, they weren’t red enough, so I had to lightly layer over a red shimmer. It worked out in the end, but I ended up using a lot more shadows in the crease than I wanted.

IMG_2016

The main shadows of this look are Spectral Fragments by Femme Fatal Cosmetics and Lumi by Sugar Pill Cosmetics. I have a deep love for my Femme Fatal shades, because they are unique and so easy to work with. Lumi is a shadow that simply works with everything and I love it to death.

IMG_1996

A quick close up of the eyeshadow look! below is a list of all the products used:

Eyes:

Base: Urban Decay Primer Potion

Crease Colours: Tarte In Bloom – Charmer, Jetsetter, Tarte Tease Palette – BFF, Femme Fatal Cosmetics – Flare

Lid Colour: Femme Fatal Cosmetics – Spectral Fragments

Inner Corner: Sugar Pill Cosmetics – Lumi Pigment

Lower Lash line: Lumi in inner corner, Spectral Fragments blended to outer corner.

Liners: Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper (lip liner), Estee Lauder Double Wear liner (water line)

Mascara: Tarte – Lights, Camera, Lashes (top lashes), Maybelline New York – Lash Sensational (lower lashes)

False Lashes: Ebay Lashes

Brows: Benefit Gimme Brow in Light/Medium, Australis – Extender Clear Brow Gel/ Mascara

Face:

Base: Loreal Infallible Matte Primer (Review)

Foundation: Kat Von D Lock-it shade 44

Powder: Nars Light Reflecting Loose Setting powder, Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Setting Powder (T-zone)

Contour: Nars Laguna Bronzer

Blush: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Mood Exposure

Highlighter: BECCA Shimmer Skin Perfecter Moonstone

Setting Spray: Skindinavia Setting Spray

IMG_1971

Lips:

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Unicorn Blood (swatch post)

Sugar Pill Lumi layer over top. (A different shade was also used, but looking back that shadow is not lip safe so I will not be listing it here.)

I found that while Spectral Fragments is a beautiful duo chrome colour, it does bruise on my eyes. So if you have an eye shape/ design (?) similar to mine please be aware of that! The green shift lasted really well on the part of my lid that did not fold away, the areas that did got bruised and so only had the dark undertone left.

I originally was going to pair JS Weirdo with this look, but I didn’t have it with me, so I thought I would try Unicorn Blood. This is my first experience trying to layer shadows like this over lipstick, I feel it turned out pretty well though!

What sort of looks would you like to see next? Please let me know below.

Purple Night Makeup Look!

Hey Guys!

I was sitting at home one day and I just had to play with some makeup, I had recently purchased a lot of pigments and I am just in love with them and want to put them all over my face. I have also been loving black lipstick, I haven’t worn it much but I can see myself wearing this a lot this winter so get ready.

IMG_1764

Here is an over view shot! I am so happy with how this turned out (even if taking photos was a pain). This is one of my first true attempts at trying to do a wing liner and I am soooooo happy with it. Probably a bit longer than what I wanted but it worked out really well for this look. So I don’t mind that at all!

IMG_1750

I feel that you could easily pair this with a different lipstick, I was even thinking of pairing this with Jeffree Star Cosmetics – Blow Pony but decided that I really wanted this to be a super bold look and so decided on Weirdo instead.

IMG_1772.JPG

Here is a closeup of my eye! Again, this was so hard to photograph, this was one of the few good ones I have! As I said, I am super happy with how the liner turned out, more so because I am still learning how to do things like this!

What I did to get the liner to look like that was to actually put the eyeshadow down first in a straight line, so that way I only had to follow the edge with my brush tip liner. I  found it made it soooo much easier to get a straight line that still connected up with the rest of the look. I doubt that is a new technique, but definably a good one if you, like me, are still learning how to draw straight lines on your face.

Products:

Face:

Loreal Paris Infallible Matte Primer Review

Kat Von D Lock-it Foundation shade 44

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla

Laura Mercier Under-eye setting powder

NARS Translucent Setting Powder

NARS Laguna Bronzer

(Don’t remember my blush)

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfecter in Moonstone

Eyes:

Urban Decay Primer Potion

Femme Fatal Cosmetics – Fever Swamp (light purple, Inner Corner),  Dead House ( pink/ purple, Inner 3rd), for the last shade the label had deteriorated before I could write down the name or stick it to the sample pot I switched it to. But this is also a Femme Fatal Shade. But any dark shimmering purple will do the trick!

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper

Eyelure Lashes, I think is style #149 or #150

Urban Decay Perversion Liner – Top Lashes

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara – Bottom Lashes

Benefit Gimme Brow – Light/ Medium

Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel

Lips:

Jeffree Star Cosmetics – Weirdo

What do you think of this look? I feel I will have to refer back to this post myself so I know which products I used! Please leave some feedback in the comments on what you think, I would love to hear from you.

Under-Grad Graduation!

Hey Guys!

Last week on Tuesday (April 5th) I graduated from my Under-Grad Degree! I do not know if I have mentioned it much on my blog, but yes! I have been a full time student for the last three years and on Tuesday I Graduated from my Bachelor Of Arts! It honestly doesn’t feel real, but having my fancy piece of paper hanging on the wall beside me as I type is a solid reminder that, yes, I did complete a degree at uni!

IMG_1544

I was so lucky to be able to Graduate with (most) of my friends who I started this degree with! It was such a great honour to study with these beautiful people. I can’t express enough how thankful I am that we could all go through this together and still be such great friends on the other side!

IMG_1558

Although I failed at getting a good shot of what I was wearing under my gown, here is what the gown looks like in general! You might be wondering why were are all in team Hufflepuff colours. Well, to put it simply, we are all from the school of Communications and yellow is simply the colour of our school. I seem to find myself always in team yellow for school. Ah well, I guess it is just meant to be my colour! (even though it really does not go with blonde hair)

IMG_1553

Here is a bit of a close up of my crazy face. I am pretty sure this is before we have received our degrees otherwise I would not have been this calm! As much as I loved wearing the gowns, I did actually get to a point where I over heated and almost passed out. Thankfully that was at the end of the night so it wasn’t a huge issue, but still. Kind of a scary moment! Thankfully my family was there for me though so it was all good!

What is on my face, you may wonder, well here is a short overview:

Lips: Jeffree Star Cosmetics – Redrum

Face: Kat Von D Lockit Foundation – Shade 45

           Brows: ABH Dip Brow – Blonde

Eyes: Inglot Gel Eyeliner as a base (Inglot Gel Eyeliner – Review)

           Tarte Tartelette In Bloom palette – shades used in the crease

           NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow – Galisto

           Sugar Pill Pigment – Lumi

My dress, even though you do not really see it throughout this post, if from Tokito. I bought this the day before because Mum did not approve of what I was going to wear. And I am in a way glad, because I love the dress that I got and I know I will get a lot of use out of it! It was a simple Black A-line dress with a black belt that clasped at the front. The belt came attached and I love it. Mum of course complained it was black, my favourite colour haha! I personally prefer black clothing but colourful makeup.

IMG_1549

I cannot wish for the day to go differently, because to me it went along beautifully. The only thing I do feel a little sad about is that after the ceremony we didn’t get a chance to take a photo of all of us together with out fancy paper. But at least I took a few photos before hand! Thank you again to my beautiful friends. I can’t imagine doing this degree without out you.

Now I have to wait for my next graduation! Which will happen in a few years. I am currently studying a Master of Teaching (Secondary) and its so interesting! So be prepared, in two years time (if I am still blogging) there will be another graduation post!

Jeffree Star Cosmetics – Dirty Money!

Hey Guys!

Today’s post is all about Jeffree Star Cosmetics Dirty Money! A shade that my sister personally hates me wearing. This is a shade that not a lot of people would like, and I can totally understand why as it is totally different and can be intimidating. I find that not every time I wear it, that I am totally happy with it. But then there are other times where I just rock it and know that its an amazing colour to where!

IMG_1481.JPG

As you can see, this isn’t going to be a colour that everyone loves. And to be honest that is totally cool! The thing that I love about this colour is the fact that it IS so different. It starts to get other brands thinking about these sort of shades which is great for those of us who love wearing more out there colours. I personally don’t wear this colour all the time, mainly due to my personal colour scheme and not wanting to annoy those around me. But that doesn’t mean I don’t think about wearing this shade often! It is a great colour that can change the mood of your makeup look!

12064384_10208842397836444_1764884982_n

Not the best lighting for a photo, but this still shows you what it can look like! I think I am sitting on a train waiting to go home for the day. I am honestly not totally sure, but the face that I am going home and it still looks this good is a positive sign! I find this is just as comfortable as any other shade. This photo does show how dark it can look in artificial light, so this is something to keep in mind, depending where you are wearing this to.

12527930_10208842398396458_1011355199_n

I included this photo to show how it can fade and how it looks when that starts to happen! That might be why I don’t look super impressed in this photo haha! I don’t remember what I was doing this day, like what I had eaten or drank, but I do remember taking this photo for the sole purpose to show everyone how it fades. I find that when this happens its not too hard to touch up, because it has vanished completely from the centre of my lips versus when its just faded. I find these don’t layer well, as in re-applying will make these uncomfortable. But you can just apply Dirty Money in the centre without touching the outside then its not really an issue which is important!

12825571_10208842398236454_1570313935_n

Goodness what a sassy photo. I was in the elevator in my unit complex probably late for something and heading out for the day. I do and don’t like this photo because of the lighting. But it shows how strong this lipstick can make you look. Even though this might not be a favourite photo of mine, it shows that confidence is something that helps pull this lipstick off. I do wish I was wearing a different blush though!

12834888_10208842398596463_227711736_n

I know this post hasn’t helped with makeup looks to combine with this shade, seeing as I am yet again wearing my sunnies! But this photo truly shows how dark this lipstick can look. I really like how it looks in this photo and that is why I set this as the feature image for this post. It shows it in a different light that a lot of people might be more comfortable seeing it in.

Throughout this post you have seen Dirty Money in all different lightings and settings, some more desirable then others, but still. Having photos I might not be 100% happy with in lighting will still show how it looks. I really like the range that you can get from this shade and it is the reason why I keep wearing it.

I do think that if you are trying to branch out of your comfort zone then this is a good shade to try. It is a bold colour to wear, but it is not a bold shade, such as something like Blue Velvet.

If you have the courage to wear a shade like this I would love to see it! So don’t hesitate to tag me on Instagram or comment below!
