It’s been 9 months since my project pan introduction. Enough time to make a baby – not that that happened. That I know of. What I did make was some very noticeable progress on this project – I actually kept forgetting about the updates, and I’m literally writing this because I want to take the trash out and keep having these empty compacts laying around.
Now let’s move on with a brief description of the progress as I talk about my powders like bad tenants that won’t leave.

This is like winter: it was coming, but took a damn long time. I took this photo back in October of last year, and I’ve since actually finished some of these powders, so this isn’t my current collection per se, but it’ll still be useful for the mini-review for any of you powder-review-wondering souls.
And due to my current Project 10 Pan, the collection hasn’t grown more than this. Yey me. Yeah…
Ok, I have gotten one powder foundation since this picture was taken that I justified to myself was ok because it was a foundation, not a powder
even though I use it as a powder so it doesn’t count. Technically. Right?
Now for the breakdown (favourites are marked with a ♥):

Bronzer was, for a long time, my least favourite makeup item. I never really understood how to use it because people kept giving contradictory instructions: “apply to the higher points of the face, where the sun naturally hits you”, they say, while demonstrating that you should apply on the temples, under the cheekbone and on the jawline. WTF?
I’m sorry, but my temples are not a high point of the face. That would be the forehead, bridge and tip of the nose, and cheekbone. That’s what gets sunburned.
Words aside, the temple-cheekbone-jawline thing is actually the way to go, I find. Once I made amends with the technique and managed to get myself flatteringly tanned, the collection grew. And here we are.
Like in the last collection post, the ones marked with a ♥ are my most used favourites.

In order to curb my desire to acquire more makeup products, I allocate a “small” space in my vanity for them so that I’m constantly faced with the fact that there’s no space for new things. Doesn’t really work. My drawers are filled beyond capacity, and I’ve gotten to the point where it’s not my need for tidiness and practicality that’s stopping me from getting more, it’s physics. It just. won’t. fit.

I love makeup. Like, hoarder style. My collection is way too big for just me and I love it that way.
…but I love sleep even more. So here’s a 5 min makeup routine with less than 10 products. Ready? Let’s go:
