March Beauty Empties

This month I have 6 empties.

  • CoverFX Illuminating Primer – I really like this! I have dry skin so I love glowy primers. I think I like the Becca backlight primer more, but this is also really good, and something I would repurchase if I was in the market for a primer.
  • GlamGlow Thirsty Cleanse – this is probably my favorite cleanser, but I’ve only ever had a few samples of it, and never purchased it because it’s just too pricy for me. It is super gentle, moisturizing, and smells amazing.
  • MUFE Step 1 Primer – although I usually don’t go for something mattifying, I really like this. It’s super smoothing and I like that it has pigment in it to cover my redness. It is great for the days I want to be lazy – I just put this primer all over my face, with a little bit of powder over, and my skin looks good without much work. I ended up trading some other samples to get more of this!
  • Urban Decay Perversion – while I love lots of mascaras, this one was right up my alley. I love long, thick lashes, and this gives me exactly what I’m looking for.
  • Tarte Lights Cameras Lashes – one of my least favorite mascaras, as it just doesn’t add enough oomph for what I usually like. I used this for more “no makeup makeup” looks, but I wouldn’t repurchase.
  • Bite Matte Creme Lip Crayon in the shade Aubergine – probably my proudest pan ever! I have never finished a full size lipstick, so this was my first. It took me a little over a year, and I probably wore it on average about twice a week. It’s a beautiful berry color, matte and super long lasting, but not as drying as a liquid lipstick. I LOVE this color and formula already have another!

Project Pan-uary

Sometimes the beauty industry can be overrun with the “buy, buy, buy” mindset. We are constantly being bombarded with new products, and being told by brands and influencers that we NEED them. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love trying new products and buying beautiful new makeup. But I’m also all for anything that reminds us to be less wasteful, and to appreciate the things we have.

Project Pan is about picking a number of items in your collection that you plan to use up in a certain amount of time. Some people choose not to buy any new products in that time frame, but it’s totally up to you. For January, I am going to focus on my deluxe sample items since I have a lot to use up from beauty boxes and point rewards. I plan to use up 7 items by the end of January, along with the rest of my foil samples, which I’ve also been focusing on lately.

  • Urban Decay Perversion Mascara – one of my favorites I’ve tried, and I’ve been using it for a couple of months so it’s about time to use it up and move to a new one!
  • Tarte Lights, Cameras, Lashes Mascara – one of my least favorite mascaras, as it doesn’t really add much oomph, so I use it for my bottom lashes. I put it in the project to remind myself to use it.
  • Clinique Pep Start Eye Cream – I love this product! It’s very smooth and hydrating. I have a few eye cream samples I need to work through, and this is the smallest, so I’m going to focus on using it until it’s gone.
  • Bite Lip Crayon in Rhubarb – This is a good product, but not a very exciting color. I’d like to move it out of my collection, which shouldn’t be hard because it’s just a tiny stub left!
  • MUFE Step 1 Primer – I just got this in my Sephora box, but have a lot of primers I need to use. I LOVE this, it is very smoothing and mattifying, so I don’t think it will be hard to use this.
  • MUFE Lipstick in N1 – This lipstick is also a somewhat boring color, and it gives my lips a weird texture, so I’m also planning to quickly use this up.
  • Cover FX Illuminating Primer – I love all the Cover FX primers I have tried. I really like this, and it is definitely illuminating and doesn’t compromise the wear of your makeup. I plan to use this exclusively after I finish the MUFE.

    And these are the foil samples I will use up.
