Day 11 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Lip Products

Day 11 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Lip Products

We’re getting close to the finish line, people. This post is all about lips, in all its categories: lipstick, lip liner and lipgloss. Again, I’m mentioning formulas as favourites, not specific colours, because that would be too difficult and I don’t need the stress.

Day 9 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Powders

Day 9 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Powders

Yes, I have nine favourite powders. I was trying to find the perfect powder for my wedding day and ended up collecting a few favourites that are ideal for multiple different situations. Powder is the last step for complexion makeup, so it’s what makes or breaks how your skin looks, and I guess that’s why I ended up trying so many. Let’s powder up, buttercup.

Day 7 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Blushes

Day 7 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Blushes

Blush is my kryptonite. I own more single blushes than eyeshadow palettes. As you can expect, I can’t reasonably choose just 7 different singular blushes, so I’m bringing you my seven blush formulas that are currently available and not limited edition.

Day 4 of 12 Days of Xmas 2021: My Favourite Highlighters

Time to shine. Highlighters’ popularity keeps going strong, doesn’t it? They’re not my kryptonite, and yet I find myself with quite a sizeable amount to choose from. Here I selected the four that give me the biggest joy to use.

My Wedding Makeup

My Wedding Makeup

Last year, before the pandemic derailed everything, I started a series called Makeup Log, where I posted my daily makeup looks in order to keep a record of different product combinations, so that I could find the perfect makeup look for my wedding day. Because I would be doing it myself.

With over a year of minimal makeup wear and a wedding date set to May, I should have started practicing around March. At least. But I’m a procrastinator first and a bride second, so two weeks before the date felt like enough time to me. Two days before was when I actually started.

Makeup Empties – The Good, The Bad and The Tossed

Makeup Empties – The Good, The Bad and The Tossed

I’ve mentioned before I don’t believe in declutters – I have a more medieval approach towards my makeup products: I keep them to serve as penitence for wasted money and to discourage myself from wasting more. So the only way anything leaves my makeup collection is either by getting used up or unmistakably turning bad.

So let’s see what products have managed to leave my Alcatraz of a vanity.

Project 10 Pan – the Powder Purge Update #1

Project 10 Pan – the Powder Purge Update #1

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.

Plethora of Powder – A collection review

Plethora of Powder – A collection review

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…

Well-

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 ♥):

Project 10 Pan – Powder Purge

Project 10 Pan  – Powder Purge

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.
