Empties / Expired / Unwanted Makeup!

Hello all! Today I have for you empties/expired/unwanted makeup I’ve accumulated over the past…I don’t even know, this stuff is all random from random times. :P

empties expired unwanted makeup

 

  1. Eyebrow Shapers – I’m giving these to my sister because I don’t (and can’t) use them. Haha! They’re basically like little razors for your brows, so I’m giving them to my older sister since she does mine in between waxes anyways. Plus, I’m afraid to do it myself! :)
  2. Benefit They’re Real Mascara sample – I’m not even going to tell you how long I’ve had that poor little thing. The writing has worn off and everything. I don’t want to throw it away but it’s all done! I loved it so much, I definitely need to get around to purchasing the full size!
  3. Bodycology Lipgloss – This one and the next one are beyond old so I’m tossing for sure.
  4. (same as #3)
  5. The Color Workshop lipstick – This one came in a set, and not only is it hella drying, it’s not my color. I didn’t like it at all and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone else, so that’s garbage.
  6. Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Stick – This was actually really good! It’s like a cream eyeshadow pencil, kind of similar to the NYX jumbo eye pencils. It broke on me because I wasn’t careful, but I would repurchase other ones. Sadly it’s all used up so I have to throw it out.
  7. Covergirl TruBlend Foundation – My first ever foundation, how nostalgic. I liked it while it lasted, and if I ever start wearing foundation again, I think I’d go back for it. :)
  8. Wet n Wild Lipstick – I’m gonna toss this one just because of how terribly drying it was. I have many other berry colored lipstick, it’s not worth the trouble. Or the chappedness.
  9. Maybelline Great Lash mascara – Also one of my first ever makeup products! This mascara was amazing at length and separation, I will repurchase it forever and ever just because it has a special place in my heart and it worked very well for me!
  10. Nivea Kiss of Smoothness Chapstick – I loved this stuff. It’s good for the lips and as a makeshift eyeshadow base if you don’t have one. (Read about that here)

That’s all you guys! What are some products you’ve used up, didn’t want, or that have expired?

Until next time!

Project Pan: Week 1 (Jan. 4-10)

Hello everyone!
For 2015, I decided to do Project Pan all year! If you don’t know what it is, you basically just use products you tend to neglect instead of ones you use very often so that your makeup isn’t going to waste. I’m going to change the products I use each week, kind of in a rotation. I’m also going to tell you the status of everything I use, like if I like it and am going to keep it, hate it and I’m going to toss it, etc. So here we go!

  1. Maybelline Eyeshadow Quad in Natural Smokes: This I am definitely keeping. The pigmentation is out of this world, even the highlight shade. It’s a wee bit chalky, but nothing you can’t work with.
  2. Maybelline The Rocket mascara: HOLY GRAIL IN THE HOUSE. This mascara works wonders, I can’t believe I’ve been neglecting it! I love it so much!
  3. ELF eyelid primer: I think this stuff is good, I’m just more of an eyeshadow base type of person, so I’m not wild over it. I won’t repurchase it, but I’ll use it until it’s gone because it is good quality and helps my eyeshadow stay all day.
  4. Maybelline Line Express liner in Brown: I love this liner! It’s so creamy and pigmented, and the smudger is soft and actually smudges unlike a lot of other ones.
  5. Maybelline Dr. Rescue Baby Lips in Pink Me Up: This line of baby lips is incredible. They are so moisturizing and give a lovely tint to your lips. So sad mine is almost gone!
  6. Color Workshop Liners: These are awful. They barely show up; you have to tug and go over and over your lash line just for some color. I’m tossing these for sure.
  7. Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara (Waterproof): This mascara is okay. It’s a little too wet, the wand is quite big, and it darkens my lashes but there’s no length or significant change in volume. I won’t repurchase this, but I’ll continue to use it with other mascaras.

That’s a wrap guys! Stick around for project pan week 2 at the end of this week coming up!

christmas makeup haul!

Hello everyone!

The phrase “long time, no see” doesn’t even do justice to how long it’s been. I’m so sorry about my inactivity! Freshman year of high school is a lot more time consuming than I thought. I barely have time to breathe anymore!

Nevertheless, I’m on winter break, so I’m going to schedule some post and try to be more active during school. I really miss blogging!

So anyways, today I’m gonna show you what I got for Christmas, makeup wise!

IMG_5502

As you can see, I got a ton of stuff!

At the top, I got a huge makeup kit and a set of eyeliners!

From left to right, I got a Victoria’s Secret makeup bag and Covergirl makeup wipes.

Next is a long line of mascaras: L’oreal Voluminous Original, Almay Get Up and Grow (one of my favorite beauty youtubers, Hollie’s favorite), Rimmel Rockin’ Curves, Rimmel Retro Glam, Maybelline Colossal Cat Eyes, Maybelline Colossal original (another one of Hollie’s favorites), Covergirl Flamed Out, Covergirl Flamed Up Mega Curl. (*Takes dramatic exhale*)

Next up is yet another eyeliner, the Maybelline Ultra Liner Liquid Liner.

To finish it off, I got lipbalm! (Hollie also loves lip balm) (I’m sorry I just adore her) I got 3: Burt’s Bees Nourishing lip balm, EOS in Summer Fruit, and Maybelline Baby Lips Dr. Rescue in 35 Too Cool.

Here’s a better look of everything, plus other random stuff that’s not makeup (sorry about that) (:

My sister also gave me her Lashblast Volume so that’s why it’s sitting in there(:

Until next time,

Nails of the Week: Nov. 1 – 7

Hello all!
I’m going to start doing nails of the week again because it’s a way to motivate me to actually do them! Haha, that’s the hardest part, just sitting down and doing it. It’s so tedious and annoying but I absolutely cannot live without my nails painted!

So this week is all black with a pop of mint green! I may or may not wear this for the rest of my life! Haha :)

What’s on your nails?

Until next time…

My (Late) Halloween Makeup!

Hello all!

I know it’s the 2nd and everything but I still wanted to show you my Halloween makeup! I was so shocked at how good it turned out considering it was quite last minute!

I was a decayed school girl who was kidnapped by two partakers of the Purge ( my best friends ) :)

It was so cool the way it all came together, and I had such a good time doing the makeup! It was awesome finally getting to be sloppy, imperfect, and getting to mess around!

Until next time guys!

And I told my mom I needed a new mascara, so (like the best mom ever) she got me one, but it was a dual pack with a liner! And she got me remover since it’s waterproof. What an angel <3

New Makeup! YAY!

Hi guys! Sorry about that October challenge I was doing. To be honest with you I’m really bad at keeping up with those, and on top of that, school is taking up most of my freetime! Quite frankly, it just wasn’t a priority. But I’m gonna work on posting more for sure!

Anyways, my sister was in Columbia yesterday and she went to Marshalls and got me this! I was so stoked! I remember wanting one of these a few months ago! So rad, I can’t wait to use it!
