2016 Makeup Use-Up Update

I think I've worn makeup less in the first half of this year than all of last year combined. I dunno folks; just totally out of it. So as you can imagine, progress has been slow.

2016 Makeup Use-Up -

Looking back at the original post I notice that I put some additional items in the Use-Up basket. That's a big tip I'd recommend for anyone trying this Project Pan business: it's important to mix it up. You can introduce new items incrementally to accompany the staunch products. Especially if you're like me and struggle with same ole same ole.

Anyho, there has been progress!

The black|Up foundation is done. That's actually heart breaking cause they've since reformulated that product and I'm praying to the makeup gods that it's the same incredible-ness. The only other items that I've made any sort of dent in are lip balms:

Dior Creme de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm

Dior Creme de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm -

Korres Lip Butter 'Mango' -

I've used 'Staunchly Stylish' a few times, even travelled with it, but it's barely showing wear :'(

Pray for me y'all.

#Anti-Haul | My Brand Blacklist

In keeping with the Brand Awareness series, I was planning to do a Beauty Brands Drama series and discuss just that. The idea was scrapped cause really, I like to laugh and ting at dem tings but they don't truly matter in the grand scheme of life. What does matter though is that we be smart consumers. Let's not fall into mob mentality - whether for or against. Let's spend our money wisely and less susceptible to marketing ploys.

By all means, spend your money how you want. Like whichever brand you choose. Rep whomever influencer you "love". This is just my 10¢.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics

I bought one of his liquid lipsticks; I wore it once and then I threw it away (I didn't like the scent). Yuh see, I actually believe that this man is just an entertainer. He likes to say things for shock value. He likes the limelight...loves the attention. What he actually believes? I don't know if we'll ever really know. What I know fuh sure though is that he ain't tu…
