Beauty, Empties

May Empties

I may be late sharing my empties, but I never knew how much I had to share in a month until I cut down my schedule to about 15 posts a month. I’ve been having to switch around the format of my posts and so this one is coming up later in the month than what I like. I basically sit down two Sundays a month now and write posts. I now have two Sundays a month free for classes. I only work on my blog for about 4 hours a month. That only includes writing the posts, not taking the pictures and coming up with the ideas. I am happy with this new pace of my blog. It makes it so I can be a well-rounded person and have time for everything that I want to have time for. It is nice to know that when life gets hectic, I generally have a week or two already planned out on my blog.

You hear about these every month, so I am cutting out the drinks that I purchase without fail every month. You know that I love them or else I wouldn’t have featured them for over a year here on my blog.

Well, I had a lot more empties than I had originally thought. I cannot wait to do my progress update on my 200 pan goal. I have been working on my pictures and I hope you can tell a difference. I think it looks more professional and I have added a bit of brightness to the pictures themselves by staging some lightening. Since I have a bit more time, I thought that I would put more effort into the picture taking themselves. I have a feeling that my empties will be slowing down, because I am running out of mini things. I still have a whole bunch of samples that I need to get through though. I hope you enjoyed looking through my trash today. Reviews are to come. 🙂

With Love,

November Empties

Hey guys! Another month gone and Christmas and Dean’s birthday are right around the corner. I had quite a few empties this month, so I was very impressed. I have a ton of reviews to write now in my spare time. I’ve been building the furniture I bought on Black Friday this weekend and I’ll be able to show them soon. I just want to buy some super glue to glue back some broken pieces on my nick knacks so they look good in the pictures that I’ll be taking. I’ll be having two VS hauls coming up soon. So, stay tuned!

I finished off quite a few minis, but also some full sizes as well. I’m very proud of what I have been able to accomplish. I am looking forward to seeing what I can finish off before it is time for my January inventory to start off the new year with. I will be busy inventorying my whole collection and making plans for my 2018 year project pan where I want to use up 250 beauty related items next year. There will  be plenty of fun posts in the new year. I’m happy that I’m only doing one project next year. Simplified.

November Sephora PLAY!

I’m very late with my Sephora Play this month. I could have blogged about this last week, but I never got a round to it. I’ve been very busy, but that’s not the entire reason why. November and December is a very busy time for me with working overtime, meeting with ABA worker for Dean, Christmas, and of course, Dean’s birthday. Blogging has taken a bit of a back burner for me. I’m hoping to have more time for blogging, because I really love it. Taking the time to write a post during my lunch has helped a lot. I really look forward to it now, when I can squeeze it in.

IMG_3069

The bag is okay, but I really wasn’t thrilled with what I got in my box this time around. Sephora had been doing so well and this box was a let down to be honest. I mean, it was bound to happen. I can’t always get the best box. The theme is Survival of the Chillest. I didn’t think that all the products went with the theme. A red lip is not chill. That’s high maintenance at least for me.

Burberry My Burberry Blush

I love the fresh floral fragrance, but I don’t think that it is that unique. I would not purchase this. It is a nice fragrance though, it’s just not for me. I will use the sample up and enjoy it. Who knows? Maybe by the end of it, I’ll want to buy it.

Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara 0.17 oz $13

I’m not totally mad at this. It is a luxury brand and half the full size. I just wish that it wasn’t a mascara. I would have preferred a lip product or an eye shadow OR SOMETHING. I will still use it and appreciate it, but I’m not excited about it. It’s yet another mascara to add to my collection of unopened tubes. I just opened a MAC sample, so maybe when I’m done with that one, I’ll open this one. I have like 6 tubes now? I could use a sample mascara break.

Philosophy Purity Made Simple Pore Extractor Mask 5 ml $2.34

This is such a small sample. I probably only have 1 to 2 uses in it. I think Philosophy is alright as a brand, but since they test on animals, I’m not going to be buying this. This is a meh product for me, because it is so small and I won’t be buying from the brand. I’m happy to try out a mask though, because I do mask about 3 times a week. I have oily, acne prone skin most of the time. Clay masks are a necessity for me. During the year, I use hydrating masks as well from all the products that I use to dry out my skin.

Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo 0.75 oz $3.06

 

shampoo

I’ve used a reviewed this product HERE. I am super happy to have another one of these on hand. Although, I haven’t been using dry shampoo recently since I got my hair cut. I look forward to using this and getting back into the dry shampoo mood. I’ve been washing my hair every other day. Now, I’ll be able to go 1 day longer. The shorter my hair is, the more often it needs to be washed. When it was long, I only washed once to twice a week. I’m washing my hair three to four times a week now. I’d like to go down to two to three washes and this will help me get there.

Farmacy Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer 10 ml $9

This is a 5th of the full size, which I think is generous for a face cream. It is close to a half of a fluid ounce. It has cool little honey beads in it to give your face extra moisture. This is a really unique face cream, but I’m definitely a no more than $30 face cream girl. Face cream takes me a long time to use up. A 2 ounce jar takes me 6 months of better. I don’t want to spend a ton on face cream. To be honest, I’m more likely to spend the $30 on a night cream than a face cream. I’ll probably go back to Simple or Cetaphil when I’m done with what I have.

Sephora Rouge Cream R04 The Red 1 g $3.12

Eh. I’m not a fan of how I look in red lipstick. I guess, I haven’t found my shade yet. I’m glad it’s just a mini. I’m going to just wear this around my house. I find it drying on the lips, so when I put this in my December makeup bag, I know I’ll be reapplying it often in order to get rid of that drying feeling on my lips. I tested it out today and I’ve had it on for an hour before touching up. I just had products that make my lips feel dry. If it’s a color I like, I add a gloss, but I just want to use this red up. I need a vampy red or a berry red. A true orangey red like this one doesn’t look good an neither do the pinky ones.

I would give this box 2 out of 5 stars. I love the Amika dry shampoo and I’m only half excited for the mascara and face cream. I hope December brings a better bag or at least more interesting products that are new to me. I just feel blah about this bag. Nothing truly excited, except for a product I know I like and have considered buying the full size off. This is a good way for me to finally decide to put it on my Love’s List or not.

With Love,

Selena

Sephora Play! September

I am not going to lie. I was a bit disappointed with what I got in this Sephora Play. Nothing really wowed me. I did get some exciting brands, but not the items that I would have wanted from that brand. I will still use everything that I got, but I hope next month will bring an exciting product or two. The theme was Fall Into Beauty and I have to say, I really love the bag this month and I’ll be using it for my monthly beauty bag for this upcoming month at least.

The red polka dots on the Play! Card are very reminiscent of Minnie Mouse for me. How can you not love that bright silky hot pink bag though? It’s an ultra girly color with such a cute saying on the front.

My free perfume sample had two perfumes from Clean in it. I wish I could have gotten a foil sample instead, which Sephora will now be doing in addition to the perfume sample. You will either get perfume or a foil packet. I am personally all for the foil packet. I have too much perfume to begin with without having all these samples around.

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black 0.25 ml for $11

This is half of the full size making this a generous sample and I am excited to try this out. Everyone loves this eyeliner. I just wish I could have gotten a full color instead of black. I have too many blacks and I tend to use colored ones more often than black. I don’t even use eye liners that often either. I have a different liquid black eyeliner that I should use up first, but I look forward to the day that I can try this one out. I can practice my cat eye or just line my waterline. It will be used eventually.

DevaCurl Melt Into Moisture Matcha Butter Conditioning Mask 1.5 fl oz for $6.75

hair

I will have to wait until I use up my Lush hair masks, but this one does sound promising. My hair has been getting curlier since I’ve stopped coloring it a year ago. Gosh, I cannot believe that it’s been a year and 4 months since I bleached my hair. Now, it is a brassy mess and blonde is too much upkeep for me right now. I intend on chopping off most of the blonde. Once I’m all my natural hair color, I will see what I want to do with it. I’m thinking temporary washout color for when I need a boost. I’ll probably will get to trying this out next year. I think I still have like 6 uses out of each Lush hair mask that I have remaining that will go bad if I don’t use them. I use them GENEROUSLY and they still lasted like two years.

Belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb 10 ml for $7.60

I was so excited about this until I looked at the back and saw just how little product would be in there. I still want to try this out immediately. My skin has been flaking like crazy these past few days, because I left a face mask with sulfur on for too long and it dried out my skin bad. It could have been from my retinal moisturizer, but I only used that twice every other night and I didn’t show any signs of sensitivity. I’ll be only using that mask on my nose for now or use it for only 10 minutes on the T-zone. I’m hoping this moisturizes my flaky skin and that it stops peeling soon.

Benefit Gimme Brow #3 1 g for $8

This is a third of the full size, so between this one and the other one I have, I have a full size gimme brow. I don’t really do my eye brows, but I have been because I have it. I don’t need to buy a brow product. I have naturally thick brows. I need to get them reshaped, but otherwise than that, they are in really good shape. I will use this up after I finish my opened tube. I don’t care for this product, because I really don’t need it. Only waxing will shape my brows. I have too much eye brow rather than too little.

Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour in Happy 0.09 oz for $21

This is almost a full size and totally worth the $10 price tag for the box. I was scared at first that it was going to be super pigmented, but it is very buildable. You can do a sheer wash of color or full on glam demonstrated by my swatches. It is such a pretty color and I will be pulling it out for the holidays. I might even wear it at work since it’s such a friendly formula. It has a semi matte look and feels comfortable on the lips. I always put a balm underneath my lip sticks, so it may not be as comfortable if you don’t prep with a balm before hand. I love the subtle metallic finish. It is more of a shimmery effect than a metallic one. I find metallic colors to be unflattering for the most part.

The value of my September box is $54.35!! I think this is one of the highest valued boxes, but I feel meh about it. I would give this box 2 stars. I’m really only excited for the lip stick, but I gave another star for the value of this box. Sephora Play is a worthwhile subscription to me. I get beauty treats every month for $10 and build up my makeup collection for cheap. If I had a daughter, I would get this for her. It’s great for beginners or for the beauty adventurer that loves to try out everything without breaking the bank.

With Love,

Selena

August Empties

Well, better late than never, huh? I was busy over Labor Day weekend and it didn’t leave much time for blogging. I’ve been trying to get a lot of posts scheduled to go up this weekend and next week. There are so many posts that I want to write, plus a lot of products are piling up in my basket to review. I have a very busy end of year for me. There are so many appointments for Dean to go to and my dad is having foot surgery at the end of the year. I’m going to get in as much blogging as I can, because I might be off and one at the end of the year. I’m taking time off to take care of my dad and Dean, because he won’t be able to take care of Dean for a bit. This is such a busy year for me. Also, it has been the most productive year as well.

I decided to sign up for the next Insurance course to get an Associates degree in Insurance Data Analytics. I’ll be getting my books in a couple of weeks. I might be blogging less. I’m going to take the exam sometime in Jan to March, which is my exam window and I get to chose the day and time to take it. Two Associates degrees kinda equal 1 BA degree right? I didn’t get to interview for that job, strictly on the basis of no BA. Talk about discrimination in the workforce.

I basically felt degraded by the HR manager that talked to me about having no degree and once I told her that I had an Associates degree (in the job description it said you could have an Associates with 4 to 6 years of documented work HISTORY, not specific work experience), she said I needed a BA and work experience to get this job. Quote: “You don’t go from down here to up here. Do you understand?” Oh, I understood perfectly. You just didn’t want to give me a chance to prove that you don’t need a formal education to work in IT.

But, let’s get to my empties post.

Not as many empties this month, but still quite a bit. I already have quite a few for September, so I think I will have more empties for this month. I am glad to be using up more of my collection. Eventually, I would like to buy some new stuff that I have been DYING to try. I’m really trying not to be a hoarder and to use and enjoy what I have. I think I have been very successful, despite splurging for my birthday and tax money treat. I need to treat myself sometimes, right? I’ll be treating myself to clip in hair extensions soon enough. I’m embracing my darker, natural hair color. No more bleach. No more blonde. Just…..me.

14 Before Fall: Update #1

I am really excited to share my update with all of you on my Fall project pan. I feel like I got a ton accomplished and will have even more in my August update. I feel like with more variety of things to use up my passion for panning really came out. I was enjoying using everything that I had and I think it helps to add products that you just want to use and have fun with. For me, this project isn’t all about panning. It is about enjoying what you have and that’s what I’ve been doing. In the process, I have used up a few items and got close to finishing a few more. Just a reminder, this project ends on September 22nd.

IMG_2445

 

I have 14 products in the picture above and I started out with 16 items. You might think that I only finished up two products, but I believe that I added three more items to the project. How many did I end up using up? Keep reading to find out.

Tony Moly Red Wine Mask Sheet Pore Care

mask

I have used used this sheet mask and serum up, hence the strike through the title. This was a great mask. It was really wet and I had enough serum to put on my face for DAYS afterward. The whole mask never really soaked up into my face and I wore it for about an hour. It took another 30 minutes for the rest of the serum to sink into my skin after I took the mask off. This should definitely be saved for a pamper night.

Roloxin Lift Instant Skin Smoothing Masque

mask

This has two one time use packets that I have yet to use. Next time I want a clay mask, I will use this instead of my tube or jar versions. I just need these out of my collection.

Soo Ae Charcoal Clay Bubble Mask

mask

This mask made my face super ticklish and it really bubbled up. I will be repurchasing this. Do they have different kinds of bubble masks? These are so great! It did its job and was super fun. I let it bubble on my face for 15 minutes then I rubbed it into a paste and let that sit for an additional 15. My face never felt so clean and smooth afterwards. It is worth the price of about 2 dollars. I had enough to do my face and my dad’s, but he wasn’t a fan of the tickle.

Medicell Eye Mask Duo

eye mask

I have yet to use this one as well. I’m going to use it on a lazy Saturday or Sunday in the morning when I have time to enjoy them with my coffee. I like to wake up in the morning with a coffee and these seem like they would be refreshing and help with puffy morning eyes.

Yes To Grapefruit Vitamin C Glow Boosting Paper Mask

mask

I loved the scent of this mask, but it was very thin. I ripped it a little bit trying to open it up. I loved the tingly feeling as well. I would repurchase this one as well as other ones from this brand. It is a decent mask for the price that actually showed me some results.

MJCARE Snail Essence Mask

mask

I’m still scared of this mask, hence why I wore the other sheet masks first. I think it might take me until the end of the project for me to use this one up. Just because I’m terrified of using it and having it smell or something. It was in the multipack that I bought. I am not adventurous enough to have bought this on its own.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Facial Moisturizer

moisturizer

I love this and I will be repurchasing once I am out of my current creams. I even used this during the day. It soaked right into my skin leaving it hydrated not oily. My skin was less oily while using this product. It is on my repurchase list for sure. I just have to go through a jar and a half and I’ll be onto my way of getting this. It is such a beautiful product, even better than the oil.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Luminous Hydration Facial Oil

IMG_2451

I have used up about a fourth of this a little bit goes a long way. I’m sure it will be gone by the next update though. I’m not crazy about this face oil. It’s not as good as I remember or maybe its just this luminous version. I’ll use it up, but I would not purchase this face oil. I haven’t found a good basic night oil yet.

Model Co Lip Lacquer in Viva

I am almost done with this lip gloss. I removed the stopper and using a q-tip to get the product on the bottom tube. I think I’ll be done with it by the end of next week, so I decided to add in another lip product that I cold wear at work once this one is finished. I ended up really enjoying the color on this one. It is more peachy than pink.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in K-Dub

There is no visible progress in this tube, so I didn’t bother with a new picture. I am really loving the color and am wearing it right now as I type. It is such a fun summer color and I’ll be taking this with me to my trip to Maine tomorrow for sure.

Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow in Pearl

I’m not sure that you can tell a difference but I did sharpen this pencil twice and it needs a second sharpen for sure before I use it tomorrow. I’m going to throw a few basics in my purse to apply when I get to Maine tomorrow. This is something perfect to throw in there. I love this on my lower lash line as a pop of sparkle.

Josie Maran Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm

I ended up liking this pore filling primer, but I will not be purchasing it. It’s not as good as the benefit one, but it is more hydrating. I’m on the fence about this one. I might purchase it. It was a very good sample and I enjoyed using it.

B&BW White Citrus Eau De Perfume

I’m making decent progress on this perfume, but I need to use it a little more often if I want to use it up in two months. I don’t think I’ll be able to use it up, but I think I’ll only have about half of what I had remaining by the end of the project. It’s great paired with a stronger scented perfume. I might drag this into the fall paired with a woodsy scent to make it more “Fall” appropriate.

Davines Natural Tech Replumping Hair Filler Superactive

I’ve used a decent amount of this and it will be gone by next update. I use this to spray down my fly aways when I am putting my hair in a slick ponytail or bun. So, I probably use this like 5 days a week. With a young son, I have to have my hair back or risk getting my hair pulled out.

Hang Ten Dark Tanning Oil SPF 8

sun

I totally forgot about this, so I need to use it up. I’ll throw it in my bag for Maine and see if I can use it all up in one go. I don’t like to tan and buy tanning products. I will use this up. I hope I don’t get sunburned though. I’ll make sure to apply this every hour or so.

Out of my original 16 items, I have used up 5 items. So, I am down to 11 products in the project. I have to use up 9 more products to call this project a success. To increase my chances of “winning”, I am adding three more items to my project.

Jane Iredale Just Kissed Ph Changing Orange Lip Balm

lip

This lip balm will be replacing the lip gloss at my desk at work. A lip balm is less maintenance than a gloss and I want to change it up a little. I used up the pink version in three weeks, so this might be used up by the next update. I’ll have to think about what lip product I want to try next out of my collection that is work appropriate for the summer.

Temptu Highlighter

I am replacing the Josie Maran primer with this highlighter. It is so beautiful and easy to wear. I wear it to work all last week. I can finish this up easy by the next update. I just pour a squeeze on the back of my hand and tap my brush into it and dab one cheek bone and then the other. It blends out like a dream and doesn’t look too much especially since I powder on top of it. It has an iridescent look to it.

So, I am now up to 13 products, but I only need to finish 9 of them. Can I do it by August? Stay tuned to find out. I’m really pumped that I can do it.

With Love ❤

Sephora July Play

I just got my play box in the mail yesterday and I am really excited to share what I got with all of you. I really like the variety of products in this box and that it isn’t all just one type of product. This is actually one of the best boxes that I got from Sephora and I know that I probably say that every time I get this box. I can already tell you that I give this box 5 stars, because I will be using everything. I really like it when I can use every sample in my box. It makes me believe that it was really made for me.

I love the bag this month. The pink checkered design is very cute and it actually looks like something a mature person might tote about. I thinking about putting cough drops in this bag for at work. It’ll make it look cute. I love the theme this month of Beauty Staycation. This bag has everything so you can look effortlessly beautiful at home or anywhere you go this summer. I just think all the items actually fit with the theme!

Atelier Cologne Perfume: Orange Sanguine

This perfume smells like fresh squeezed oranges. I’m glad to have gotten this sample since it smells nice, but I really prefer perfume samples with a sprayer. I just find it hard to dab on perfumes without spilling a little bit of it.

It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara = $6

I’m happy to have another mascara to sit in my drawer. It takes me a while to finish a mascara since I only wear it on the weekends/days off from work. I really enjoy using mascara and I don’t go by the three month expiration date. I use it for 6 months to a year or when I feel like the formula isn’t working like it used to. If I don’t like the mascara, it’s an empty. Mascara is the one makeup item that I will throw out if I don’t like it in my lashes. If it smears easily or gives me a ton of flaking, it has to go. I can deal with some flaking, but that is it. I prefer a dry mascara and not a really wet one. This has a lot of good ingredients, so I’m hoping it’ll be a good one.

BareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipcolor in Swag = $9

This is a my lips but better lip color and is a little more than half off the full size. I am very happy to have received this in my box and I love nude colors like this one. It is very effortless and I can just throw it on and now that it looks good. It is a forgiving color and perfect for my light skin, especially nowadays, I tend to pull more pink than yellow in my skin tone. I’m telling you, having a baby changes everything.

Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray = $2.25

hair

I like the scent of this brand’s products and I always use a detangling spray or some other similar product after I get out of the shower on my hair. My hair tends to get dry and tangle, so it needs a lot of moisturizing treatments. I am trying to get through two other sprays/lotions currently, so I am going to put this aside to try at a later time. I wasn’t impressed with this brand’s hair mask. It wasn’t moisturizing enough for a hair mask, but I used it as conditioner. Hopefully, this has enough moisture for me, otherwise I will just use it to spray down my hair before and after getting out of the pool.

MILK Makeup Cooling Water = $2

I am most intrigued by this product here by MILK. I am happy to finally have a MILK product. I am interested in trying this gel moisturizer during the summer. I’m not in love with the FAB moisturizer that they sent last month. It has too much of a sheen for my oil skin, but I think this one will be perfect for me. It is $24 for a little over an ounce, so it isn’t too expensive if I end up loving it. It won’t be enough moisture during the winter, but I will put it on my love’s list for next summer if I end up liking it.

Boscia Charcoal Pore Pudding Intensive Wash-Off Treatment = $9.50

I cannot wait to try out this mask! I need to make room in my medicine cabinet for this one, so I won’t be using it any time soon. I have a lot of minis in my morning and evening skin routine right now. Once I use up some of the stuff that I have in there, I’ll be able to add this in there. I love doing masks and I do a mask about three times a week if not four. I’ll use a 10 minute mask if I don’t feel like putting in too much time into it. I haven’t tried anything from this brand before, but their products are not too pricey. If I like this mask, I could see myself buying it. Only after I finish up most of my masks though. I have like 12 face masks in tube/jar form. I have a problem, I know.

The total value of my box this month was $28.75. That is almost three times what I paid for it! Each month is always an amazing value and I will be using everything from this box. The mascara won’t be used for a while, but that is from how slowly I use up mascaras. It’s not the makeup’s fault. On another note, I have some exciting posts going up this coming week. Stay tuned everyday for a new post in July. After July, I’ll probably go back to posting about four times a week.

With Love ❤
