Project 10 Pan

Hello Loves! This is my Project 10 Pan video. After my birthday I decided that I had absolutely too much makeup and thought it'd be a great time to do this. If you've never hear of Project 10 Pan then let me explain. Project 10 Pan is where you pick 10 beauty products and use them up completely before purchasing any new ones. It's a great way to use up what you already have and save money at the same time. If you have any questions please feel free to message or comment and I promise i'll get back to you. 

List of 10 beauty items I will be using up (in no particular order)
1. MAC beauty powder from Barbie Loves MAC collection in Pearl Sunshine
2. MAC blush from Barbie Loves MAC collection in Don't Be Shy
3. MAC Lipglass in Glamoursun
4. MAC Cremesheen Glass in Fashion Scoop
5. MAC Select Sheer Pressed powder in NC25 
6. MAC Blot Powder/ Loose in Medium Dark
7. Benefit face powder in Georgia
8. Sephora liquid eyeliner in 1.Noir (black)
9. Chanel Purete Mat (Reflect Mat) in Gentle Beige
10. Two Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse cream whipped foundations in 150 Classic Ivory and 110 Porcelain Ivory

Enjoy!






Let's see if I can pull this off ;) Tell me, do any of you think you can do this? If so what 10 beauty products would you use up.

Birthday Haul



Hello! I have a haul for you guys. My birthday was 11-11-11 so I went ice skating with my friends followed by a small get together at my house with a little wine....OK! A LOT of wine hehe. Well we all know with birthdays come two things...cake and gifts! I happen to not like cake so I was a lot more excited about the latter :) Check out my Birthday Haul video bellow for all the Birthday goodies I received this year. Enjoy!

Cute Cuticles

Hello! How has fall been treating you all? Here in Southern California it's been pretty cold which has made my skin and lips super dry but not to worry because I have found the answer.....

Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream



It is a little tin of heaven for your cuticles that is easy to apply, leaves your cuticles so soft after just one or two uses and it smells great. And get this, you can even use it on your lips or any other part of your body that's a little dry. For under $4 what more could you ask for.

Have any of you ever tried it? I know I love it but what are your thoughts?

Enjoy!

Stripes!

Hello loves! I'm a bit under the weather but I just had to share my new obsession with everyone….VERTICAL STRIPES. I know people say that they're not flattering but I just think they're amazing and bold. I am most particularly obsessed with the MOTEL striped pants and skirt, they are for sure on my wish list. 





Here are a few other pieces I found…









I hope you guys enjoyed and please let me know what you think about vertical stripes. Are they a  DO or a DON'T? 

Have a great Sunday!

Rosebud Lip Balm

If you're like me then you probably suffer from chapped lips during the winter months too, some people suffer from it year round but don't worry I have found the solution!




I've tried plenty of lip balms in the past including, EOS, Burt's Bees, MAC lip conditioners etc. and nothing has ever worked. The EOS lip balm even gave me a rash that lasted more than a month after a few weeks of use. I tried everything to get rid of the rash from the EOS lip balm and nothing worked until one day I reached in my lip (lipstick) drawer and remembered I had a few of these Rosebud lip balms that I hadn't really used and I decided to give them a try. Let me just tell you that the rash  from the EOS lip bam went away in days…yes DAYS. I wear this everyday now whenever my lips are feeling a little chapped. You don't need very much and it lasts for hours. The only complaint I have is that you have to apply it with either your finger or lip brush. Not very convenient but I honestly don't care because it does the job, I just make sure to wash or sanitize my hands before I apply. Rosebud lip balms come in a variety of shades/scents. My favorite is Minted Rose. The Minted Rose is exclusive to Sephora though other companies like Bath and Body Works carry different shades. The price for is around $7 depending on where you purchase. Some people might find it to be a little on the pricy side considering its just a lip balm but I promise you it's worth every penny. 


Let me know what your opinion on the Rosebud lip balms are and if you have any suggestions for other great products. 

Enjoy!
