I’m done with project pan. Yay!!! It has been so long, more than two months. I was struggling with this project, realizing how difficult to finish a makeup item. Overall, I think I did a pretty good job.
6. Benefit – Hoola
Can you see the pan there? I know it is tiny, but it took me forever. I really like the color a lot, which is so far the best bronzer for my skin tone. It doesn’t turn orange or dirty on my face. However, the quality is quite disappointing. Firstly, it only lasts on me for around two hours. Secondly, its price is comparable to NARS bronzers, but it is not as soft and densely packed as NARS. As much as I love the shade, I don’t think I will repurchase.
I was using it all the time, as a setting and blotting powder, and it still took me so long even though I had already hit major pan on it when I first started. At the very end, the last bit of the pink portion shattered and I just stopped using it. A little bit goes a long way and you need be careful with it because overapplying gives a white cast.
8. Maybelline – One by One Mascara
I thought it was the one when I first used it and it really worked magic for the first month. Then it became extremely difficult to work with. I still cannot figure out why. I read a post and the blogger had the same problem, so I will not repurchase it.
9. Buxom – Lip Gloss & Laura Mercier - Mascara
I liked them both. If you haven’t tried Buxom’s lip glosses, definitely give it a shot. I really like the tingling sensation.
The mascara is really nice, but not enough for me to repurchase.
10. Maybelline – Concealer & Revlon – Brow Fantasy
The brow pencil is just OK, and I still prefer brow powders better. However, I am very curious about Shu Ueruma’s brow pencil.
11. Rosebud Salve
It has a pink tint, but it doesn’t show up on lips. I mainly used it as a lip balm. Sometimes, if some lipstick was too drying, I would put this beneath and over the lipstick to give more moisture. I still like the pot form better because I felt like it was more moisturizing.
