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

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

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 ♥):

Sephora Favorites – Nude Look: a review

So Sephora speaks American English. Even in European stores. I’m gonna shut up before saying anything too politically incorrect over the lack of an “u” in the product name and show you what you came here for.

This won’t be an in-depth review as I haven’t tested these products fully, but more of an insight of what you get with this set, and if it’s worth it. The regular price is 32,60 euros but I purchased it with 20% off.

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.

Shop & Tell: a Harrods makeup haul

I’m not one to visit shopping centers while travelling. Most brands are international, and the products and lines are the same everywhere. However, being my second time around in London, I felt I had enough time to complete the check list of must go-to places and do a little shopping.
