2016 Makeup Use-Up

More Project Pan action!

There's a whole subset of Project Pan participants in the blogger/vlogger beauty community that's growing daily. More and more we're realising that the corporate beauty industry - controlled by like four mega brands - just want us to be forever shopping; always grabbing for the newest thing on the market. But if we keep that up when will we ever get a chance to truly appreciate our already ridiculous makeup collections? Never. That's when.

I'm not on any soap box because y'all know I'm a shopaholic too. It's just necessary to take a step back and truly analyse what you have regularly. Last year's challenge highlighted for me the types of products I could easily go through versus what I shouldn't buy anymore of since I barely use them. This year I'm hoping to completely use a lot more products and *fingers crossed* shop a lot less. I picked the following products mostly due to the length of time I've had them. Please click on the links provided for more details on the respective item.

M.A.C Shiny Pretty Things Haul

In the most tardy local M.A.C Holiday release ever, Shiny Pretty Things was made available when the new store finally opened in The Colonnade Mall on December 3rd.


From YouTube chatter, it seemed like the eyeshadow singles and the Extra Dimension Skinfinish 'Snowflushed' were the hot ticket items. 'Snowflushed' is supposedly a big pan of 'Stylishly Merry'. To me, those thing were definitely mesmerizing to look at but the lip glasses were the unexpected stunners.


At this point, M.A.C items in limited edition packaging are collector's pieces. Right? Right. I was more looking at what would make great gifts.

T - B: 'Scarcely Seen', 'Rosebuddy' and 'Caketop'
Of course I had to get a bullet lipstick...

Matte Metallic 'Straight Fire'
The matte bright fuchsia 'Both Cheeks' looked gorgeous too but we all know I barely wear pink lipstick.


Just like the Nutcracker Sweet Collection they also released sets of minis. They claim these…

Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser

Usually I do these cleanser reviews when I've used the product for a while. Typically a little before half the product is gone. Well...


...this is almost done. I was using this in the shower and yuh know, time just got away.
