2017 palette of the year update 5

IMG_3511.JPG

 time for another update on the palettes i’m trying to use…5 months down – 13 shadows to go!

thought of the month

i’m starting to realize that i don’t love the naked 3 the way i used to.  i’m finding it very difficult to use and hard to find the motivation to use it.  i’m super stubborn so i totally will but its not going to be easy!

goals for next month

  • continue to expand pan
  • finish 2 shades in the laura mercier palette
  • finish 1 shade in the urban decay palette
  • expand pan in both palettes
  • incorporate other shadows from my collection

 

happy palettes!

june boxycharm

 

boxycharm is a subscription box service.  for $21 a month you receive 5 products – typically full size.  the value of the items in the box far outweighs what you pay.  this months box comes in at $113.86

all in all i’m pretty happy with the box this month.  there is only 1 product i have no interest in

if you’re interested in trying boxycharm here is my referral link!

here is what is in this months box!

2017 project pan roulette update 5

its hard to believe that 4 months of this year are already done.  its harder to believe that i’ve finished 90 of the products i set out to finish this year.  this project pan has definitely made that easier.

here are the products i’m currently working on!

may empties

Screen Shot 2015-10-04 at 2.17.18 PM

 

good bye may…and beauty trash!

here we go with may empties.  in many categories there aren’t a lot of products finished….and i’m ok with that.  while i’m trying to use stuff up i’m trying to enjoy things and i’m not using for the sake of using.  i do however, have quite a lot of makeup empties.

this was also a huge declutter month…and a huge lip product declutter at that! but most of the items decluttered weren’t actually lip products i used this month.  when trying to decide what products to use next month i did a lot of swatches – hand swatches, lips swatches and there were a bunch of products that either i don’t love anymore of products that have expired.

 

AS USUAL HERE IS THE RATING SCALE:

  • yassssss ~ products i wouldn’t hesitate to purchase
  • middle child syndrome ~ these are products that i liked but i’m still on the hunt for “something better”.  i may or may not repurchase in the future
  • bye felicia ~ these are products that i wouldn’t repurchase if you paid me!

happy trash!

hello june!

another month, another rotation of beauty products!  again this month i went with a combo of things i’m trying to use up, things i love, things i’m not sure about and things i haven’t tried yet! i’m really trying to rotate through things, in part because my goal is to get my collection down to the products i love.

here’s what i’m using this month!
