Finish 8 By Easter

Hey you guys!

So continuing on with my project pan obsession. I want to do a new project because I want to use up a few products that have been sitting in my collection for a long time.

But I definitely have different goals for every product and I’m just so excited. 
I’m doing the 8 by Easter which means I want to use up 8 products by Easter (14 April) which I am sure I can do. Because I like to use products up before I purchase other products. I started this project 1 February so it’s a little over a month. If I don’t finish 8 the products will roll over into another project. I’m excited, this is easing me into a project pan roulette which means it’s random products that you pick… And it can get quite crazy. But these products are easy to finish so I know it’s not the most difficult but I’m still excited. But I might do a rolling project pan… So when I finish something I can add something. 



SO LET’S GET STARTED:



1. Lacura Body Care Moisture Balance Body Lotion For Normal Skin

I don’t love this, i would rather have a moisturizer for dry skin because it makes my skin feel amazing. This one is halfway, it was completely full but I have been using it over the months and now I’m just dedicated to it. I am sure I will be able to finish this. Because I have just found my holy grail moisturizer/ body lotion so I’m just using up all the other lotions I have.

Starting point: 40%


2. Avène Emoillient Cleansing Gel.

Its just a little sample that I will use as a body wash. Originally I didn’t like it because it smells kinda weird but I’m sure if I use it on my body and not my face. I will definitely use this up. 

Starting point: 100%


3. Hand Sanitizing Gel

I don’t like this at all, it smells like a lemony Window Cleaner. I hate it, it dries out my hands and smells so strong, I want to finish this so bad. It leaves my hands feeling sticky and the worst part is, I can’t put a good smelling hand cream over it, because the scents clash!

Starting point : 70% 


4. Pout lipgloss

So I have finished this … And I am actually not going to count this one because there wasn’t a lot in, so the product I’m putting in my Rimmel Stay Matte powder and I want to hit pan, if possible. I just want to make progress! I use it almost everyday.

Starting point: 85%

5. Radox Body Scrub

I have found my holy grail scrub so I just want to use up anything that I have. It smells good, it smells like Lemonade. And I will be using this up pretty fast because it’s just a sample size. I mean it will take me a week or two.

Starting point: 70%


6. Essence Longlasting Lipliner- Sweetheart

It’s an amazing product and really smooth and pigmented. I love it, although the Colour is not what I would wear often. I love nudes and this is a bright pink, so I have been mixing this and toning it down.

Starting point: 60%

7. DKNY Pure perfume

This is such a cheat because…it’s almost done. But I have to force myself to use it, because it’s not a scent I wear often. It’s a bit more mature and it smells very… Forest /woody which I don’t mind. Oh and this is a knock off product and it’s amazing!

Starting point: 10%


8. Design Step 3 Top Coat ( I actually mixed in some eyeshadow pigment in it)

So this chips like crazy, but I wear it on my toes. I want to finish a nail polish because I have 42 nail polishes. So I would love to finish this!

Starting point: 50%


9. Hit pan on one eyeshadow..

Now this can be any eyeshadow, there isn’t one that I’m sure about, but I’m excited about this one. It’s a good challenge.

 

10. Hand Cream 

I have two, one is from Sorbet and one from Oh So Heavenly which both smell amazing.. So which ever one I finish… That one! It’s either gonna be my Sorbet Firming Hand & Nail Cream Age Control or the Oh So Heavenly Classic Care Wrapped in Romance Skin Loving Silk Hand Cream.

Starting point: 70ish %



11. Zam Buk In Cherry

This is a multi purpose lip balm ish product. I would love to hit pan on it. It moisturized my lips, it is great for my cuticles. I’m sure I could use this and hit pan. I just usually loose or forget these kind of products. I love Chapstick and Lipbalm in a stick so yeah.



12. Deodarant

I have 4 so whichever I finish, I would love to finish all of them but for this project o would love to finish one. Just one. And i mean I use deodarant everyday so I should just have a dedicated one.

Thank you so much for reading!

I hope you enjoyed and I hope you found this helpful!

Love Chelsea ! Xx

January Favorites!

Hey you guys
So I had the best and the worst month of my life. I had the best vacation of my life, I’ve been a more positive person (which is super random because I’m a realistic person) but that has been the good part of January, so the bad side of January , Matric (last year of high school) is so… Horrible. It’s so busy and packed full of work. But the worst part of January is that I lost my grandfather, which sucks. I just feel sad and broken. So it is really hard for me to be positive and all that. So that’s just that. I have a weird way of coping with these things..


BUT ANYWAYS LET’S GET STARTED: 


My first favorite of the month is my Maybelline New Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser. And I like it because it fills my pores and it doesn’t make my skin greasy. I really enjoy it. And i can wear it with or without foundation. It’s a silicone based primer and I really like it. I took it with on holiday and it did a great job so I really enjoy this. And it feels really cool. I only use a little bit at a time. I would love to try the NYX Pore filling primer or the Benefit Poreffesional primer. But for the month of January I’ve been loving this primer.


The next thing that I’ve been loving was the Beauty Treats 12 matte eyeshadow palette (travel size) in the shade neutral. I will be trying a few more of these. Because this was about $2 and it’s amazing, it is 12 useable everyday warm matte shades. I love it so much. It’s a hidden gem at the drugstore. I want them all. I took this with me and I found a look with this palette that I love so much. It’s absolutely amazing. And it has a double ended doe foot applicator. When you swatch it it doesn’t come off as being amazing, but it is!


So let’s talk about eyeshadow bases. One I have been loving, is the Essence I love/heart Colour intensifying eyeshadow base and it cancels out my veins, because I have an intense amount of veins. And I love the way eyeshadow applies on top of it. It’s an amazing product.


You guys… I know I mentioned this in my Year end favorites, but I have finally been using it… And I’m in obsessed. I’m babying this product like no other. It’s my Pamperlief Foaming Body Scrub. And I’m waiting to go and buy back ups of this product. This scrubs my body , while making me smell delicious, while cleaning my body all at once. I have never loved a scrub so much in my life. And you don’t need a lot at a time.

So I love tea, I’m not much into coffee (although I love coffee flavored things, like coffee ice cream or milkshakes) but I have found one of my top 5 teas. It’s the Woolworths Vanilla Chai tea and it’s delicious. But if you leave the teabag in to long … It tastes bitter but if you leave it in for just the right amount of time… It’s sooooo gooooddd.
So you might of noticed that I’ve been obsessed with project panning. I’ve been taking this a bit more serious this year. I am so obsessed with the reason behind it. I’m busy with a Project 5 pan and it’s so satisfying. I keep all my empties which is crazy but I love using up products to replace them with products that I absolutely love. I will be doing one on my blog. It forces me to use up products that I don’t necessarily hate, but that are just there… Getting old… Getting gross… I get the chance to focus on them and give them some love.


So keeping with the decluttering theme. I’ve been binge watching project panning videos like no other. I have a problem. But I have been loving watching Courtney K because I really like her and she is so cute and she project pans. I’m obsessed with her. I’ve watched all her project pan videos… I’m not kidding I have a problem
Thank you so much for reading!

Revlon: Hits & Misses

Hey you guys!
So I love doing hits and misses, it’s my favorite kind of post because I get to give my opinion and I love to read and watch these kind of posts and videos. I like Revlon but a few of their products don’t really want to try, because they don’t interest me. But there is so many things that I would love to try, but that’s not the point! The point is, I have tried 5 products and I would like to review them! I’ve done a few on Essence and Wet ‘n Wild, but Revlon is what I’m going to do today.
My first impression of Revlon: it’s a cute brand but not something I really go out of my way to try. The packaging is fine, not the most eye catching. I’m not interested in most of the products just because they don’t look exciting.

What do I want to try from Revlon? The Colorstay Foundation, their Nearly Naked powder, the new cream based Eyeshadows and their lipsticks.

SO LET’S GET STARTED:


1. Revlon Photoready Airbrush Effect: 006 Medium Beige. (Btw this is way to dark for me!)

I wore this when I was doing a beauty pageant and it was beautiful. It was full coverage, it looked amazing in photos, which its marketed towards. It has glitter in it, but it was amazing. I used it when my skin was super oily. My skin has changed so much, it’s still really oily but I have combination and sensitive skin now. And this… Clings to my dry patches like no other. I used a beauty sponge to blend it in but it looks like a cakey mess. It also makes my forehead look grey, which is so weird. This is a bit orange on me but I mean it’s fine. I’m going to try this with a brush, but honestly this does not preform the way it used to.

I rate this: C  ( I liked it and it looked amazing, but now… It makes me look like a hot mess. I will try it again. Maybe put a heavier moisturizer on beforehand or a hydrating primer. I don’t know. I just don’t like it for everyday, because it also has glitter in it.)


2. Revlon Photoready Primer Shadow + Sparkle: Impressionist 

I like these, they are cute. The lid shade is pretty, and they are super buttery. I really like them. The one.. Problem I have with the eyeshadow is, is the fact that the shimmer shade is chunky. But the matte shades are supper good and it’s really user friendly.

i rate this: B ish, it’s good. My mom loves it, it’s the only eyeshadow she owns. It’s not the best glittery Eyeshadows I’ve tried, but it’s cute.

3. Colorburst Matte Balm + Laquer Balm

So these are two different formulas from Revlon and I will discuss both. They definitely have a different formula and feel.

Laquer balm (provocateur) : so I wore this to an event. It feels like Lipbalm and it has a beautiful shiny look to it. It’s super opaque, and looks so amazing. It has a minty tingle to it. But it wears off a bit weird. It will start to disappear in the center of my mouth and then it’s still super red around the edges. But it does leave a stain on your lips. It’s not the most comfortable formula ever, but I mean it’s beautiful.

Matte balm (unapologetic) : so if you have dry chapped lips they will emphasize that. It’s a beautiful coral color. It’s pigmented and beautiful but not my favorite formula. 

I rate these : B


4. Super Lustrous Lipstick (Iced Mocha + a pink color that I don’t know the name of)

These are some of the best lipsticks at the drugstore. They feel amazing, they stay amazing, they are amazing. I highly recommend them. I want to buy a ton of them. I love these. They are pigmented smooth and opaque. I love them because you can sheer them out and build them up. I want to buy a few more nudes.

I rate them : A

5. Revlon Chroma Chameleon Nail Polish

Not even sure if they sell these anymore, but I love this. It’s a beautiful color and it does not chip. It takes a while to dry but it’s probably just my nails. If you can find it I highly recommend it! I am not the most gentle person so my nails never look Perfect because I have zero patience.

I rate this: B+


6. Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat

I love this, it’s my favorite top coat. Although it leaves my nails looking beautiful. I can get about 4-5 days of wear time which is amazing. I really like it. It’s beautiful. And I recommend it to everyone. I also love the brush. It’s a double skinny brush and it’s amazing.

I rate this: B+
So thank you so much for reading!

Reviewing my Beauty Trash (part 2)

Hey you guys!
So I was on a cruise and I met the guy of my dreams, but … Everything that’s amazing in the world comes to an end. Because he worked on the ship so the chances of me seeing him again is … Almost zero. So I didn’t blog much, but I picked up myself and I had to remember that life goes on. I was in tears when the cruise ended but I’m back to reality. And I finished a lot of products. And I have so many products that are on their last leg so, there will be a part 3 to this ( I’m project panning like crazy ). I have done a Reviewing My Beauty Trash here. But I’m excited about everything that I used up.



SO LET’S GET STARTED:



The first thing I have used up is my Eucerin Dermo PurifyerToner for oily and blemish prone skin. I love it, Eucerin is the brand I recommend to anyone who struggles with acne. It’s the first brand that worked for me and I used really expensive brands like Dermologica and Eucerin has been amazing.

Will I repurchase: Yass I have already. It’s my fourth one!


My Oh So Heavenly Beauty Sleep Collection Super Rich Body Lotion in Dream Cream. I love this, it’s just a generically good smelling product. It didn’t leave my skin as moisturized as I would like. But it felt good, it smelled good and I loved it.

Will I repurchase: no, I mean it didn’t blow my socks off and I have my holy grail body lotion.


My Argan Oil Hair treatment, I miss this. I loved it, it smelled like baby wipes (I’m not complaining!) and I loved it. I don’t love using loads of production my hair. But I used this after I conditioned my hair and I comb my hair with this product on my tips. And it leaves my hair smooth and shiny.

Will I repurchase: I think so, I really like it and it did what it said it does. And my hair is really damaged, and I don’t want to cut it because for the first time in forever ( Frozen refrence… I watch that movie wayyyy to much!). My hair is finally long after I cut it years ago and regretted it. I don’t use heat on my hair and I think this product will help with split ends!


More skincare! My Eucerin DermoPurifyer Active Night Care. I love this, I put this all over my face and then under my eyes where I need a little bit more moisture I put coconut oil. But I love this product. It’s oil free and amazing.it doesn’t leave my skin greasy!

Will I repurchase : always!


This Woolworths Pout high shine Lipgloss was amazing. It smells like vanilla and it’s sticky but not MAC lipglass sticky and it looks so gross because it was a clear gloss… And as you can see… It’s not clear anymore . And I loved it over lipliners, lipsticks, alone. It’s just beautiful and super cute. It’s super affordable and I love it!

Will I repurchase : yes, I really like it. And it’s really inexspensive.


So… This is so random, because it’s not … Really a beauty product. Some may say it’s food and I highly agree, it’s great to eat (I love honey so much) but! The reason it’s in my beauty trash is, because I love using honey on my oh so sensitive skin. If I have sunburn or if I have inflamed skin (which happens quite often) I put honey on my skin. It’s my favorite beauty hack of all time. And I go to bed with honey on my skin (which can be dangerous , I know!) but I always have honey in my skincare area. I love it. It’s the Cape Coastal Honey?

Will I repurchase: obviously! Any honey is fine!


The Radox nature’s spa Herbal Body scrub with lemongrass and bamboo, I have used two of these sample sizes. And it’s great for traveling. It’s not harsh enough, it’s a great shower gel, but not scrub. I loved the scent, it smells like lemonade.

Will I repurchase: nah , I have my favorite scrub of all time in my shower and I will repurchase that one over and over again.


This is the JTOne Flowery Body Butter and it smells … Amazing. It smells like strawberry ice cream. I don’t know why it’s marketed as floral scent because it’s not. I think they are discontinuing this but if I can find it again, I definitely will. It has shimmer in it which looks amazing on my legs.

Will I repurchase: yes, if I can find it!


The Nivea Anti Perspirant Protect and Care, so it smelled clean and fine. The second ingredient of this is Aluminum which I’m not comfortable with (which is weird because i have 5 Deodarants or roll on who ever one you prefer, and all of them have aluminum in, but I would love to finish all of them and get a more natural one!).

Will I repurchase: no, aluminum is a harsh chemical and it freaks me out!


I can not buy perfume because it’s so expensive, I cannot get myself to pay that amount of money. Because if I have perfume I wear it everyday because I love smelling good. So when I found this knock off DKNY Be Delicious perfume and I payed about $4 for it, I was excited. But I didn’t want to get to excited because what if it doesn’t last, what if it smells funky on me…. But no…. This is amazing. I need to stalk this company, it’s called Rands &Scents and I love it. This perfume lasted all day. People complemented me on this and it smelled exactly like the original. And the packaging is cute!

Will I repurchase : hell yeah! If I find this company again I will buy back ups and back ups of this!


The Clarins BrightPlus Tri Intensive Brightening Serum sample. I don’t own any high end skincare and I’m too afraid to infest in something expensive for my skin and then I’m … Allergic or my sensitive skin won’t allow it, but this… Was amazing. It feels so good. It sinks into my skin so well. And this sample lasted me 3 months. My skin reacted to this so well… I want this so bad!

Will I purchase a full size: one day I will purchase this.. One day.


I’m so sad about this… My Essence Shading Powder in 02 Medium shattered…. It’s so sad. I was supposed to project pan this… This was so good for the eyes. I really liked this. I dropped it and it was fine but when I looked in my makeup bag while traveling it was shattered.

Will I repurchase: yes, I might repurchase it. I’m first going to wait a bit.


So this L’oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil Nourishing Conditioner… I don’t want to be weird… But usually shampoos and conditioners lasts… Years. I’m not even joking, I can have a shampoo for 3 years and it will be fine, but this… Went bad… Really bad. And I’m someone who doesn’t like to waste, I like project panning for that reason. And I smelled this and it smelled like harsh chemicals. It smelled so bad and I still used it, so I let my mother ( who works with chemicals, she is a chemical engineer) , I let my mother smell this and she told me to throw it away. And it was only a few months old.

Will I repurchase: no. I didn’t like the scent anyways (before it went bad)

What is in my Travel Makeup Bag?

Hey you guys!

So I’m going on a cruise! And it’s gonna be so much fun! So as I was packing my makeup bag I thought it would be a good blog post because you can’t take all your makeup with you , so you are narrowing down which goes, and what stays. So I am excited to show you guys what is going with!


SO LET’S GET STARTED:


First off I take a primer with me. This one is brand new to me and I’m excited to bust into it because it’s pore filling and I have gigantic pores. It’s the Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser. And I’ve heard good things about it. It feels good and it’s just a basic silicone primer. I’m excited to see how my foundation applies on top of this.


So Foundations! I always take a BB cream because I don’t want heavy product on my oh so sensitive skin so a bb cream is great. I’m taking my much loved L.A Girl Pro BB cream in the shade Neutral. It covers a great amount and feels light weight. I’m almost out of this and I will definitely repurchase!

So the Foundation that I’m taking with is the only foundation that I own at this time. And I thought because I’m on a boat (and hopefully getting a tan) this will match me better. Because it is soooo dark. And it’s the Revlon Photoready Airbrush Effect 006 Medium Beige. And it has shimmer in it and it’s heavy duty. I originally bought it for a pageant that I was in and it is for Photos and Modelling and all those “glamorous” things. But I thought I might get some use out of it. But it is hella dark.


My eye primer is the I love Colour intensifying Eyeshadow base from Essence. It’s so good and it cancels out the veins on my lids. I don’t have to use a lot of product to do so and it’s amazing.
So my powder ish things. I have 3 that I take with. So my powder I will be using is the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in 08 Cashmere. This is too pink for my skin, but it’s fine. But I love it. It does a great job at keeping the oils at bay. (And I have super oily skin!)


The other powder is the Essence Shading Powder. And it’s a highlight and contouring duo thingy and I really like it. If I’m in a pinch I can use this on my eyes and it would look great. I just love having it! It’s in the shade 02 Medium.
And then my Wet ‘n Wild Megaglo Contouring Palette Contour in the shade Dulce De Leche. And it’s my contouring shade and the powder I use all the time!


Of course I take my Wet ‘n Wild Comfort Zone palette. I love it, it’s beautiful. I just think it’s super multi functional. It has neutral shimmery shades and more greenish shades. And of course that beautiful duo chrome shade!
So I just picked this up recently. And this is the Beauty Treats 12 Color Matte Eyeshadow in the shade 01 Neutral. It is literally perfect. It has 12 neutral easy to work with Eyeshadows, which pairs amazingly with the Comfort Zone Palette. I will be getting the other palettes from beauty treats, they are just so goooodd.


My mascara is obviously Maybelline LashSensational. I love it, it doesn’t irritate my eyes that much. It stays and looks beautiful. I love the way it makes my lashes look. It’s my holy grail.


My Wet ‘n Wild Coloricon brow pencil in Brunettes do it Better. And I love it, it’s great. It has a spooly and it’s great to have!


My Yardley Longlasting Eyeliner in Silver Siren is coming with as well because I think I can make a cute look out of this! And it doesn’t irritate my eyes too much.

I’m taking 3 lipliners with. I’m taking the Avroy Shlain Colorlook Longlasting lipliner cinnamon. My Essence Lipliners in 11 in the nude and 05 soft berry.


My lipsticks I’m taking is Wet ‘n Wild Megalast lip color in Bare it All, the Essence Longlasting lipstick in 07 Natural Beauty and my Maybelline ColourSensational lipstick in Velvet Beige. I love all of them, they are in the same nude family.


The lipgloss I’m taking is the Essence XXXL Longlasting lipgloss. A pinky nude shade. It is cute and pretty


So the brushes I’m taking is the Ecotools tapered blush brush ( I did a post on it here), the Ecotools Full Eyelshadow brush, the Eco tools flat eyeliner brush. I’m also taking my Essence eyeshadow blender brush.


I’m taking my beauty sponge as well, because it gives me a flawless finish on the skin.
I love the shape of this one. It’s easy to travel with. I prefer to do my makeup with a sponge.


And last but certainly not least my Essence Keep it perfect! Makeup fixing spray. I love it, it makes my skin look great. It intensifies any eyeshadow. It’s just amazing. I love it so much. I apply it before I apply mascara. I find that it makes my mascara run a little bit, but it’s ok. I still love it!

Thank you so much for reading!
I hope you found this helpful and I hope that you enjoyed!

Empties! Reviewing my Beauty Trash!

Hey you guys!
I’m getting into the swing of things! Because I want to be more consistent and I’m excited! So I am reviewing my trash… It sounds so funny but I’m excited, because I’m doing a project pan (here) so it’s so satisfying to use things up! And I am working on those products like a crazy person. And I’m gonna review and say if I would repurchase it! And because I don’t wear makeup every single day there won’t be loads of makeup but maybe in 2017 I might be using a bit more. This is gonna be long!


SO LET’S GET STARTED: 
I mentioned this in my Products That Changed My Life post because you always hear YouTubers talk about it and I mean it’s just toothpaste, but it really works and I love it, it’s the Colgate Optic White Instant Whitening Effect. I have become obsessed with the health of my teeth because you only get one pair, and I really want to take care of mine. And I really like it. It also tastes really good (that’s really random), the only thing I don’t love about this is the granules (I think that’s what it’s called) stains my basin… And it kinda turns it blue… Not crazy about that but you know, it’s fine.

Will I repurchase? Yes! I am actually using a Sensodyne one that is twice the price of this one , so I will repurchase the Colgate one for sure!

The Lipice lip balm in Summer Melon kinda saw the inside of the washing machine… So technically I didn’t use it up, but still… It counts. I liked it in the sense of it tastes good and it gives a cute peachy tint too your lips but moisturizing … Not so much. If I am using a lip balm or Chapstick the point of it is … To moisturize… And this doesn’t do that… And I mean it’s nice to have and I have a back up of this because it smells like summer! But I mean realistically it’s not serving its purpose if I have to reapply it 5 times an hour… (Btw this one is the back up, I wanted to show you guys how Chapstick looks…. Wow , no I’m kidding I just couldn’t find the other one! )

Will I repurchase: No, I am a very practical person and I appreciate if a product does what it’s supposed to do, and this doesn’t. I mean Vaseline can do the same…


The Simply Bee Hand Cream ( this is in my project pan) and I used it up! I don’t like this at all. I actually used it on my feet because it’s more moisturizing than normal body lotions. And I don’t like the smell, it feels like wax… I don’t like it. I prefer my Pamperlief Body butter and I have a back up! (I got one for Christmas!!!!). I didn’t allow myself to use the Pamperlief one before I used up this one. I’m so glad it’s done!

Will I repurchase: nope. I don’t like it.


You know if you go to the salon and the hairdressers love to sell their shampoos to you and it’s supposed to contain unicorn hair Essence in it and fairy dust and all that! But it’s just an over priced shampoo and they are fine it’s the Goldwell Rich Repair Shampoo And it’s supposed to be healthy shine & silky smoothness for dry, damaged and stressed hair. I have all of those things. It smells really good. I just recently have really long hair and it’s something I’ve been wanting so bad since I cut most of it off. So I don’t want to cut it just yet. My long hair makes me so happy because it doesn’t grow as fast as I would like. I mean… I know I should cut it… I just don’t want to… But this was fine. Definitely not worth the price tag.

Will I repurchase: No, I can buy 4 shampoos for the same price as one of these.


This I’m just throwing away or giving to someone else because I can’t handle the way this smells. It’s the Woolworths Fresh Delights Caramel & Cream Body Butter and I was gonna project pan this, but I can’t handle the scent. It smells like you are literally putting on fresh caramel on your skin and I mean fresh, in your face, I want to attract bees kinda smell. It gives me a headache and I already get a headache at least once a day… It was a gift for my birthday but…. I can’t. It leaves a burnt caramel scent for 2 days…

Will I repurchase: hell no.


So you know sometimes you really like something and then it just disappears and you forget about it and you find it at the back of your bathroom cabinet. Yeah that’s what happened to this product. It’s the Body Material Vanilla Hand & Nail Cream. It smells like Vanilla and Tea and it’s so good.

Will I repurchase: no, it’s just a hand cream I can find a good hand cream anywhere.


This is a little sample size of the Avène Emoillient Cleansing Gel , and it smells too floral for my super sensitive skin. And it lingers… I don’t like it… At all. It was a freebie so I don’t feel bad throwing it away. It’s just too strong of a scent.

Will I buy a full size: no!


Let’s throw in a makeup item. So let’s just be real I wear mascara almost everyday so you will probably see a lot of mascara in my empties and not a lot of other makeup ish things but that’s also ok… You know it’s also fine. But the first mascara I’ve used up.. Like its gone. It might have even expired but I would still risk my eyes and me getting a headache. It’s my holy grail (Not using that lightly !) Maybelline LashSensational and I have repurchased a new one. I wanted to branch out in mascaras because you guys are probably sick of me raving about this mascara, but I tried another mascara from Essence that is amazing! Like no joke it’s so good, but I’m allergic to it! I kept on trying it and hoping that it worked, but it gave me the worst migraines. (no joke it was that bad) . The migraines brought me to tears so … Yeah I’m kinda terrified to try other mascaras. The LashSensational also makes my eyes a bit sensitive I’m not gonna lie, but nothing as bad as the other that I’ve tried!

Will I repurchase: yes! I already have!! But if I have a headache it will make it a bit worse but if the day is good to me I don’t get headaches. But I prefer not to go to the root of my lashes because my waterline and tight line area is so sensitive.

The Dischem Fresh Crisp Lemon Nail Polish Remover with protein. It’s a nail polish remover… It’s fine. Although it smells like window cleaner!

Will I repurchase: yes if it’s on sale.

I have more products but this is already soooo long, I will do a part 2 because I love to give in depth reviews!

Thank you so much for reading!

I hope you enjoyed and I hope that you guys find this helpful!

Collective Haul

Hey you guys!
I am ready for 2017, I’m a bit delayed to be quite honest, but I’m here… And that’s what counts! (Right?). But anyways… I am doing a collective haul, because I just got tons of stuff and I’m excited to ‘begin’ this year with a haul. I am so excited for this year… Because 2016, was not a good year… I’m not gonna lie, it sucked. But I have a good feeling about 2017! But anyway! This might be a long post! ( I’m sorry!)

SO LET’S GET STARTED:
I bought rings…. Which is weird because I didn’t want to bring attention to my hands, but know because that situation is sorted out! I’m so excited to catch up on those things! But I bought 7 rings… Don’t worry they were bought at a factory shop because i am a cheap person…. I mean who wants to pay full price for something if you don’t have to! I love longer less bulky rings because I fiddle with my hands a lot so if I’m wearing a ring I don’t want to feel it, I only wear rings on my middle finger ( that sounds bad… But you know what I mean…) and ring finger.. I cannot wear it on any other fingers so these are longer rings. 

The first one is for fun and it’s a skull ring, I thought it would make me look a bit more bad ass… But I don’t know it’s quirky and funny and I really like it! It has a Pirates of the Caribbean vibe. And I love Johnny Depp, so I’m not complaining.


I bought 3 of the same type of ring, but in different colours. So I have a blue one, black grayish on and a multi Colour one…. And I love them, they are fun and cute. 


The next one is my favorite I think… And it looks like two leaves and it’s so easy to wear. It’s just a black grayish one and I love it. 

The next one is a green one and it’s super cute, I just loved the design of it and will be rocking it in the future!

So my last one is a knock off of the one I wanted for a long time. The one I wanted was made of real silver and a semi precious stone… But that’s expensive so I just got this one instead, it’s not real silver or semi precious but I still love it!


I come to the realization that I need to try something out before committing to it because I am really weird when it comes to nail polishes, because they chip on me like no other. So I bought these minis because I can try loads and decide which I want to buy full sizes of! So this was the after Christmas sale and I got 50% off! So it’s the Sorbet Sweetest Sixteen and there are 16 mini nail polishes in them. 


 Milky Way: super opaque white shade, I love it so much it’s probably top 5! Miss Popular: is a metallic silver shade, I haven’t tried it but it looks really pretty! Melting Moments: is gonna be my go to Fall Colour, it’s one of my favorite colours of life! Definitely also top 5. I Gold You So Much: is a gold shade which glitters in it! It has some chunky glitter in it. I really like this so much.


Golden Oldie: is a gold shade, and really pretty. I love it as my accent nail! Bright Side: it’s a dark ish pink Colour, it’s really pretty, but I don’t wear this bright of a pink. Flash Me: ( well that’s really straight to the point…) but it’s so cute. It’s a cute shade for my toes in the summer!!! Hot Shot: it’s also a shade that’s gonna live on my toes! It’s a fire truck hot tamale red!


Ink Me Pink: it’s an apricot Colour, it’s also top 5 it’s beautiful! I love it!!! Queen of Hearts: it’s also a pink Colour that looks kinda neon and it’s really pretty. Berry Special: I don’t wear purple on my nails, it just doesn’t look good… But it’s still a pretty Colour. Wine and Shine: It has a metallic shine through it, I don’t know about this one… I’m just excited to use it! 

Stars in the Sky: it’s a pretty blue shade, so pretty! Jaded: is a cute sea green Colour. Hot Pink: I don’t wear this Colour… Ever. Cool Summer: is a brick red Colour, it’s really cute.


I bought 3 nail polish removers because as you can see I have a lot of nail polishes to play with! It’s the Cutex Nail Polish Moisturing one I mean how moisturizing can nail polish remover be…


I repurchased my favorite mascara of all time! My Maybelline LashSensational and I’m not allergic to it (touch wooooooooodddddd!!!!). If I develop an allergy to this I’m gonna be so Mad! 


I bought my mom a lipstick because I wanted to! And because she isn’t as into makeup as I am, but I love buying her makeup. It’s from Rimmel and it’s a really pretty bright pink shade. 310 Back to Fuschia and it’s so cute! 


So I am collecting patching to put on the back of a denim jacket because I want to personalize my own, and I bought a few more patches. I got the magic 8 ball (or whatever you call it…), I got the yin and yang sign just because it looks cool, the Route 99 one, one that says Kiss Me ( ooooo scandalous!) and a Happy Daisy because it’s cute and brings Colour and it’s really really cute!!!!

Thank you so much for reading!
I hope you guys enjoyed!

2016 Year End Favorites! 

Hey you guys!
Oh my goodness it’s New Years Eve! I’m so excited to do my year end favorites, these are the things I have been loving in 2016. It’s been a crazy year, a lot has happened. And I am excited to share these with you. A lot of these were featured in my blog a lot, but it’s exciting. I love to find new products and to experiment with them. And sometimes they work and sometimes they don’t. But today we are gonna be focusing on the things that worked! I will be experimenting a lot more in 2017. So we are gonna do my top 16 products of 2016!


SO LET’S GET STARTED:

So let’s start with the product that has changed my life. I actually did a post called Products that Changed my life here, where I went into detail to why this product is amazing. It’s the Sally Hansen Triple Strong Strengthener. I love it, I use it every time I do my nails. Even if I’m not wearing nail polish I still like to use it. 

The least used product and the newest to my nail polish collection, but I love the combination so much. It makes me so happy to put it on my nails and to looks at it. It has been a big nail year for me, if you have been here for a while you would know, but I finally get to wear pretty nail polish. But this combination will make it hard for me to use my other nail polishes in my Nail Project Pan which I did here. But it’s just so amazing for summer and spring. It’s the Sorbet Longwear Salon Proffesional Finish in the color Ink Me Pink (which is actually an apricot color) and Metal Down which is an iridescent color that transforms your nails to the most beautiful creation ever. I love it so much. 

So this is also a new addition to my nail collection. And it’s the best top coat I’ve ever used. It’s so amazing it even makes bad nail polishes look good. I bought one and it expired (maybe that’s why it was on sale.) but even though it smells kinda weird I still love using it and then applying hand cream afterwards. But I will be buying a fresh and new one. But it’s magical, and I love it. Even the applicator is awesome! It’s the Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat. I will definitely be repurchasing, it’s amazing.

The Wet ‘n Wild Megaglo Contouring Palette Contour, I have been loving this product for so long. It’s amazing the power it’s so smooth and soft and it feels like butter. I did so many post on this product alone because it’s amazing. I did the Wet ‘n Wild vs Essence and the Wet ‘n Wild: Hits & Misses. I love the contouring powder it’s super easy to use and it’s blendable. It blends effortlessly into the skin. The other powder is just an amazing brightening powder. It is great for the under eyes. In the shade Dulce De Leche.

I think I’ve found the best eyeshadow formula at the drugstore and it comes at a great price. Yet again it’s from Wet ‘n Wild and it’s the Comfort Zone palette. I live it so much. I can create so many looks with it. I love the neutrals and the not so neutrals. They are just amazing. I highly recommend Wet ‘n Wild Eyeshadows. 

So my favorite brush of this year is the Eco Tools Tapered Blush Brush I also did a post on it here. Its just the most multi functional brush I’ve ever used. It does everything I need face wise. I just love it so much. I’ve washed it so many times and it hasn’t shed on me. And I love supporting a brand that care about the planet. Ecotools brushes are made from recycled material.

The Rimmel Stay Matte Powder has been my go to powder this whole year. I might need to get it in a less pink shade but I love it. It sets my skin and it keeps the oil at bay. I love it. And it smells like Red Lollipop. I have used this every time I use makeup and it is still more than half full. I have it in the shade 008 Cashmere.


My holy grail mascara is the Maybelline LashSensational Mascara. I’m not allergic to it, it looks amazing it’s my favorite mascara. It looks so full and I love it so much. I need to go get another one because I’m all out. I love the wand, I love the formula. It’s just absolutely amazing. I haven’t found anything that compares to this. 

So I never believed in makeup setting sprays, I mean why would I put a liquid on my skin after I spent an hour on my makeup. But Tati raved about it. And so I had to try it. And it is Mattifying and sets my face for the day. And I live it. It also intensifies my Eyeshadows. So it’s kinda a miracle product. Plus it feels really good on my skin. It’s the Essence Fixing Makeup Setting Spray.

I have had the softest skin because I was using this product. I’m now using my project pan lotions but I miss this project so much. It’s The Vaseline Intensive Care Dry Skin Repair. I love this so much. It leaves my skin moisturized and soft. It smells so good. I’m using my project pan lotions because I want to use it up. But I’m so excited to use this again. It smells like coconut. It’s soooooooo amazing. I need to go to the drugstore and buy all of them.

I love a good easy face product because I don’t want to fuss with heavy foundations. And if I’m just running errands I love putting this on and it’s the L.A Girl Pro BB Cream and it’s amazing. It doesn’t smell weird, it’s not heavy, it covers enough. It doesn’t break me out, it just does everything I want it to. I’m in the shade Neutral. And I’m almost out and I need to repurchase another one.

So I love the brand Pamperlief and it might just be my favorite body care line. But my top two products from this line, I can’t choose a number one favorite because I love both for different reasons. So this is the Pamperlief Foaming Vanilla Scrub. This is the best scrub I have ever used. I love the scent. I love the way it makes my skin feels. It lathers and the scent stays on my body. It smells delicious. It is my favorite scrub of all time. This is my second one. It’s magical.

So the next product that I live so dearly has change the way my face feels. It’s harsh enough to scrub my skin, but gentle enough not to hurt or “break” my pores. Which means it doesn’t damage my skin. So it’s just this little Scrubbie that kinda looks like a doily. I just put face wash on top of it and wash my face in circular motions. And it helps with the texture on my skin. It leaves my skin feeling so smooth. And it Takes off my makeup like a dream.

So my mom asked me what she should knit me and I had this idea of a huge chunky knitted jersey. And she made it and I love it so much. It’s my favorite item in my closet. It’s a winter staple for me. I wear it everywhere. It’s oversized and warm and cozy and I love it so much. I love the color and I’m trying to get my mom to knit me another one.

So my favorite summer Essentail is Denim Shorts, and this pair from Old Khaki and they are so comfortable cute and easy to wear. They don’t show my butt and I appreciate it. It is a stretchy fabric and it feels so luxurious. And I want 10 pairs of this exact one. I also love that it looks distressed, but it’s not destroyed. I love it so much. It’s a must have for the hot summer weather.

Thank you so much for reading!

Nail Project Pan!

Hey you guys!
I know I already did a project pan (here) but I wanted to do one a little bit different. I wanted to focus more on nail polishes, because there are so many that I don’t love or that are old. And I still want to use them and force myself to use them. And it’s not that they are bad, it’s just… I found a better formula or shade that I like more. So I am obsessed with project panning things and getting rid of the things that I don’t love, and buying things that I love. I have a reward system with this and there is a nail polish set that I want and if I finish 7 out of the 9 (or use half of the product, I just really want A lot progress on these) then I may buy me that set as well as a Essie gel nail polish. So I’m excited ! I want to use them up before the end of 2017!


SO LET’S GET STARTED:


These are in my products I want to use up in 2017 so I’ll just get them out of the way! The first 4 things are in my project pan!


1. Wet ‘n Wild megalast salon nail color in Wet Cement. I love this shade and it would be beautiful in the fall and winter time. I’m excited to use this. I didn’t want to just put in products that I don’t like, I think this project pan will be easier if I put a few products that I actually like. But it’s pretty much full. So this will be a bit more difficult to finish. (0.45fl.oz / 13.5 ml ) 


2. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in the color 546 Get Juiced and this is a beautiful orange coral pinky color and it’s a great summer and spring shade. It will be super hard to finish this, because it’s still almost full. It’s not the best formula but it’s not horrible and I will be rocking this color all summer because I don’t think this is really a winter or fall color. (0.5 fl.oz / 14.7ml) 


3. Catrice Ultimate Nail lacquer in 08 Goldbuster and it’s fine. It doesn’t do great on top of other nail polishes. I will be so happy to get this out of my collection. It’s not the best.


4. The Sorbet Salon Proffesional Finish Gel Top Coat. It’s not the best top coat, but I will use this up because I will be able to wear it to school. And it has some progress on it. So that exciting. I will be happy to finish this! And that’s the last of the products I want to use up I’m 2017. (0.45fl.oz / 13.5 ml)

 

5. This nail polish is so random because I though it was a cool minty blue color but no.. It’s green… Like really green and I don’t wear green nail polish… Ever. So this will be interesting. It’s the Woolworths brand Paint in Sweat Pea. And it’s green… And it’s full… I’m not sure how… But I want to finish this soooooo bad. (12ml) 


6. Essence Effect nail polish Liquid Foil the purple one 33 flashy …something. I don’t like this. This will be going on my toes and hopefully I will finish this. It looks like tin foil and I’m not crazy about it. (0.33 Fl.oz /10ml )


7. JT One Pretty in #JustSaying. It’s not the best formula. I have to apply 2-3 coats before its opaque and it chips but I don’t want to waste so… I will finish it in the summer. It will be hard but I mean if I use it constantly, and I need to apply 2-3 coats I think it will go faster. (10 ml)


8. And the two smaller sized ones. The first one is also the Woolworths brand but a different formula it’s the Nails Quick Dry nail polish in the shade Go Go Red and it’s just a little baby one and it’s a red shade. I don’t wear red on my finger nails, it doesn’t look good on me , but I love red on my toes it looks so fun! (6ml but there is only 5 ml left!) I’m sure I will finish this one quite fast.


9. This one is also a baby one. It’s one from a set and I don’t wear these types of pinks often but I actually like this one, it’s the Sorbet Longwear Salon Proffesional Finish in the color Cuddle Up Baby. It’s a Barbie Baby doll pink. And it looks really pretty. (5ml)
Thank you so much for reading!

I hope you guys enjoyed!
