Monthly Empties (August 2011)

Again, it’s that time of the month. Here are my lovely empties. In fact, I finished quite a lot and  most of them were included in my project 10 pan already. Click here if you are interested.
1. my beauty dairy -- masks.                  1/5              will not repurchase
I used to love them. It’s so convenient to use them, but I think I might be allergic to them. I'm not 100 percent sure, because I changed my skincare routine quite a lot at the same time.

Review: Standing Brush Set By Sephora

I bought this set one month ago. I think it is really a good buy at $25.The pouch is of good quality, really nice. You can also fold down its sides to stand it upright.

Finally, I'm done with project pan. Yayy.. It took me 3 weeks which seems forever. I did buy two things which is not so bad I guess. Anyway, here they are.

Review: Benefit High Beam

It is a liquid highlighter with a brush applicator. When it is blended, it gives pearly sheen with a little bit of pink undertone.

All about Samples

Before I start, my skin is dry and kind of sensitive.
I'm always more than happy to try out samples. I think it is risky to try products in full sizes without knowing it will work or not.

Glitter In The Air By Deborah Lippmann

Glitter in the air, how beautiful it is!
I've had this nail polish for a while, but I can never get the color in the bottle no matter how many coats I do. Finally, I made it work.

August Birchbox

DISCLAIMER: I had been subscribed to birchbox long before I started project 10 pan, so I do not think it is cheating.

Birchbox is a monthly subscription service. They ships 4 to 6 higher end deluxe samples to you every month at a cost of 10 dollars. If you are interested, find more info at www.birchbox.com

It came in a hot pink package.
 Here is the actual birchbox.
Open it up, there is a card telling you what it comes with.

Review: Benefit Bad Gal Lash

This is just a sample size.
I really wished this mascara could be the one because there are so much ravings about it. Unfortunately, it does not work for me but it is definitely not a bad one of any means. It  is super lengthening and volumizing. The only problem I have is it does not hold the curl. Due to that, it transfers a lot to my lower lash line which is not pretty at all. If you have naturally curled lashes, this might work for you.

Project 10 Pan

What is project 10 pan? Basically, you can not buy any cosmetics products until you finish 10 products. 
I have realized that I spent too much on makeup, so I really need to do this project and  I decide to do it in my way.
My rules:
1) I have to completely finish up everything. (except mac msf which I only want to hit pan on)
2) I can only purchase at most 3 necessities during the process.

Here is my list consisting of 15 products of which I need to use up 10.

Monthly Empties (July 2011)

These are products I used up in July.

Products I Regret Buying

Here are some products I regret buying. Hopefully it will be somehow helpful.
First, TREsemme dry shampoo. It did nothing except making my hair even greasier. Besides, it makes my scalp super itchy. Awful product ever.
Organix moroccan argan oil shampoo
I really wish this product would work for me because it is sulfate free. Unfortunately, it was so drying and harsh. It dried my hair out so much that I can not comb my hair through.

Tarte Glow Your Way To Gorgeous

Finally, I got my hands on this set. I bought it through qvc.com. It comes with 6 full size products, two brushes and two sample size products.
