Project Pan 2018

I’m finally doing a project pan!

Until a couple of years ago, I always had to empty or hit pan before I buy new makeup. Eventually, with all the seemingly good releases and my unexpected liking for Dior, I’ve amassed a lot of makeup that emptying or hitting pan has become a challenge. So I’m doing that challenge this year. Not to buy new ones–except skincare, of course–but to lessen clutter and make way for still unopened makeup.

Before 2017 ended, I already listed the makeup and skincare I want to use up this 2018. Some like contour and bronzers could be really difficult to hit pan on, but I will do my best!

My kikay kit from the recent waterfalls and lake outing

My office had its annual outing a couple of weekends ago. I was in charge of our itinerary, so I planned visits to an underground cemetery, spring water falls, a man-made lake, and an organic farm. Details of the outing will be in my blog. Instead, let me show you the makeup I brought.

FOTN: Sin on NYE

This was my makeup for New Year’s.

The family and I only stayed home, so it seemed this was too much. But I wanted to play with makeup. 😛 I also missed wearing my Mac Sin.

Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation Primer

All these years wearing makeup, I never used a primer until recently. I want to make my makeup last longer and prevent oiliness for at least 6 hours. The weather and office conditions make my face produce more oil than it usually does. 😕 I consulted Google and found two options including this primer I’m about to review.

I would consider my other option in spite its high price tag, but I remembered I had a tester of the original Laura Mercier Foundation Primer. So I took that out, tried it, and was very impressed how it made my makeup look.

Too much makeup shopping!

A collective post on my loot from third quarter this year to present. There are some I couldn’t find photos I took of, so I didn’t include them here. I don’t want to retake because I don’t remember when I bought them should I remember which ones they are from my makeup stuff. Anyway, I added my initial impressions per product below.

Benefit Rockitude! and the Porefessional
These were purchased earlier than 3rd quarter of this year.

Benefit Rockitude! – I only wanted the Benetint, but I saw this and thought this was such a good deal. I get to try the High Beam too!

Benefit Porefessional – This great for travel since, for a face powder, it comes with a brush instead of a puff.

Back to pinks

It all started with the The Body Shop’s Dusty Rose Lip and Cheek Stain. There’s nothing like having natural-looking pink flushed cheeks to brighten my face and make me look more awake (especially during long hours at work!). Then when I was persuaded to stay for a night in Shangri-La Fort because it was already late when I got done with gym, I only had my mascara, powder, concealer, and Revlon ColorBurst Balm Stain Honey to use. My face looked flat and pale, but the Balm Stain really gave my face the ‘life’ it needed. My liking for pinks have rekindled. 🙂

Since my birth monththis month started, I switched up my makeup with more pinks–Mostly lippies that are great for either day or evening looks. I haven’t thoroughly checked my collection, but these are my picks so far:
