I'm 14 days in my #onemonthonepalette
challenge, and I find myself constantly grabbing the same 5 shades from my #3502morphepalette
Some of the issues that I've come across so far, would be that the majority of the shades in the palette have red undertones. This is nice when you have other shades to soften that look, however even the "dark brown" shades have red pigmentation in it. The first few days my eye makeup made it seem like I had an eye infection from far away. 😳 Im more so disappointed that I feel that I need to grab a secondary palette to complete an everyday look, when this palette has 35 shades.
I find the most workable shades for an everyday look are;
Here are some unfiltered swatches from the 5 shades.
Has anyone else had the same issue with this palette? Am I the only one?
I live in a sea of nudes..🐚🐠 Most of my all time favourite lipsticks are nudes. They go so well with everything! I tend to prefer creating a more dramatic eye, so a nude lipstick can really balance the look out.
My all time favourite is the @nyxcosmetics
Lingerie in Lace Detail. The formula is perfect! It has a cream base, so it sits comfortably on the lip and isn't as drying as a matte, but last almost all day with no re-application.
Swatched in the image are Kylie and Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipsticks. Swipe left for the names.
Let me know if you guys want more swatches! #panners
August lineup is selected! 🌞. .
I will be using the following products everyday until the end of August. .
Maracuja Creaseless Concealer
Take A Dip from the Balm Desert Collection
3502 Eyeshadow Palette
24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil in Black Velvet
Liquid Lipstick: @kyliecosmetics
Bare in Matte Formula
Lip Liner: @kyliecosmetics
I'm mostly excited to try out the Morphe 3502 palette that's been in my collection since March 2018, but has been sitting as a decoration on my makeup table. 😌
Wish me luck #panners
No buy/ low buy update! I'm actually going to just talk about the first few days of July here because I started doing no buy July on July 4th to do until August 4th so that's still going for me! I'll update on that in a few days, but just as a teaser I failed my no buy but kept on my low buy rules at least. More on that later.
-------- So at the end of June I was so excited I did an accidental no buy I went right around and bought some stuff on July 1st haha. All this stuff is technically no buy/low buy friendly for my categories because I didn't include eye primer or magnet palettes in my no or low buy and I'm counting this color correcting palette as one in that category. I've been eyeing this color corrector palette since last year and in early July this went on a really low sale prize so it felt right to get it. I have been using a lot of peach corrector for my undereyes since last year and using concealer for spot correcting with no green. I had a green corrector maybe ten years ago but I started getting more breakouts a couple years ago and I hadn't really come around to using green again but I'm so glad I finally picked some up. I really like this palette and I think I can use every shade except the yellow. I'm not sure what the yellow is for still. The magnet palette you might've seen already because I put all my pan that palette shades in there. I really love this magnet palette! I think z palettes are really boring and I like having a mirror so this fits into my stash really well. I'm really getting into singles since I started getting cuter magnet palettes. ----
The eye primer was a little silly and I definitely don't need it. I actually haven't found an eye primer that doesn't make my eyelids itchy. I have really sensitive eyes and all the eye primers I've tried and concealers make them itch and I'll inevitably rub my eyes 1 minute in. I use a little glitter glue on occasion on top of some existing eyeshadow if I'm doing glitter and that seems to be ok but still no luck in the eye primer category. To be fair this eye primer actually doesn't make my eyes itch as badly but it still makes them itch so, no dice. I need to just give up on that category.
Let's get to know the liquid lippies!! It's clear that I've fallen for the Kylie Cosmetics hype, seeing that it accounts for the majority of my liquid lipstick collection. 😌 My friend Hoot-Hoot is silently judging.
The tally is:
22 Matte Liquid Lipsticks
3 Lip Glosses
3 Matte Minis
I would ideally like to get my matte liquid lipsticks down to 10, but for this year I would be happy to finish 3.
Do you guys wear lipsticks everyday?
Beställde två produkter från @lyko
idag, ett serum som ska ersätta ett som snart tar slut hemma och en concealer som ska fylla ett tomrum jag upptäckt i sminksamlingen. Båda kommer säkerligen dyka upp här framöver. När jag hade lagt min beställning dök detta meddelande som vanligt upp. Jag gillar verkligen ett bra erbjudande, men att kunna motstå det kan verkligen kännas ännu bättre. #nobuy2018
I have gone 6 months with my #nonewbuy
resolution of 2018(except the bomkai I bought in Feb, I guess) and I am sorry and not sorry to say I ended it this month, you guys! (I still have my 18for2018 going on, which I will continue to do till the end! Probably do an update soon as we are already on the second half of the year 🤔) .
Although I feel incredibly proud of what I achieved this 6 months I also feel it's now time for me to move on! This decision was imperative for two reasons 1) Loss of my luggage from the recent trip with all the new clothes I got for myself last year and that I have been planning this year on! 2) Me joining in a corporate job after two long years in a different dress code environment than the previous one I worked for (I don't fit in most of my work clothes from the past, anyway!) .
This six months of noshopping has made me a responsible shopper, if nothing else and I consider that a success which had given me a life long learning! Though I feel sad to take it as a defeat I feel this learning is probably a good enough first step! I now choose what I like carefully, resist the urge to shop impulsively, don't feel bad to spend on investment pieces in in my ever-shrinking closet and declutter regularly, as a practice! .
I know I probably could have still pushed and finished the year, just for the sake of satisfying my ego and saving my face to you guys or lied about it, but I dint want to do it! While it's important to push ourselves out of our comfort zone, it doesn't have to be something that will affect us or will make us unhappy! I was still a lean shopper for the past two years and I think I need a moment of celebration for a while! 😁 I would definitely do a nobuy for a whole year at some point time in life, later on! And you guys will know about it too! 😀 happy Sunday!
P.s: I broke my fast at Cooptex Thillayadi showroom in Egmore with only two sarees, if anyone is interested in that information! 😁

This is my first empty of July
This was my everyday go to for my face last year. While i loved it ive found recently that my face perfers physical sunscreens to chemical ones like this.
This brand also isnt crulty-free so thats a nogo for me.

I finished the AVON eyeliner at the hotel this past week. I had just enough to get through. I didn’t realize how close I was to finishing! I have another brown AVON glimmersticks which is also very nearly finished as well. So far this year: 5 eyeliners finished. 2 to go. Only one of these liners were/are unused. 😊
Next up after the brown liner, I have a black Julep liner.
For my #finish18in2018
, I have finished 9 products. 9 more to go!
1 mineral powder
Things that I know I will finish by the end of the year:
1 foundation that is not the foundation I chose at the beginning of the year. 🤣
Both concealers: The Tarte Rainforest concealer is nearly done.
1 bronzer: Lots of pan showing on my physicians formula butter bronzer!
1.5 eyeliners. The brown AVON is nearly finished and I can’t imagine finishing a black liner but we shall see!
I don’t have a replacement for the Biore Watery Essence. I do have facial moisturizers with SPF but I would layer this over them. As much as I want to adhere to my #nobuy2018
SPF is a non-negotiable. I do have a deluxe sized It Cosmetics CC cream which has SPF of 50. I will sort it out!

In today's video I'm talking about my Summer Essentials for my Capsule Wardrobe.. Including cutsey little tops like this one - This is one I made myself out of a scrap of linen just big enough to make anything out of it (or just about).. What I love about it is that I made it to tie at the front, but I realised I can wear it either way 🙌 Teamed with jeans and a simple flat it would make an idea Summer's day outfit ☀ Because I got a scrap piece of fabric, this top was basically free!! Anyway, link to the video is in my bio if you wanna check out the rest of my Essentials 😘

I’ll be honest and say I’ve been having a lot of temptation shopping holiday sales. I haven’t gotten anything new in quite some time, but I also haven’t made a lot of time for makeup application in the morning, often reducing my morning makeup to 3-5 minutes just so I can get out the door in time 😆 anyone else?! Lol.
As a reminder to myself, I took out my makeup collection and started going through it. I have 19 LipSense liquid lip colors, not counting my other lipsticks! Definitely not needing to buy any lip products for a very long time until some of these are used up. .

At the beginning of 2018, I went on a low buy for the year. I set myself a limit of $30 per month on everything - skincare, makeup, perfume, nail polish, consumables, etc. Six month later, here is an update of how I did during the first half of the year:
🥀 I bought a small sample perfume which is ok because it's only 2ml
🥀 I bought face cream by mistake (actually, my husband bought it, instead of a spot treatment I had requested)
🥀 I bought eye cream because my backup eye cream is quite heavy and not suitable for summer, and my current eye cream will be over soon
🥀 I bought hand cream because I needed it, and had obviously miscalculated by including hand cream in the no buy pile
I have also received a soap, 2 face washes, and a full size perfume as gifts, but the perfume is not mentioned because I gave it away without opening.
As for the rest of the purchases, they were all planned.
I spent a total of $183 in the first half of the year which is equivalent to exactly $30 a month. I had two no-buy months (February and May) and some other months I exceeded this average. I think it's not bad at all.
Overall, I think my low-buy list was not very accurate: as you can see, I had to buy some things I didn't plan to because I ended up needing them. But I'm quite pleased with the results and I'm planning to keep doing the low buy until mid-December 2018.

No buy/ low buy monthly update! I didn't buy any makeup or skincare this month! I've been so excited about this update. I did buy some clothes and shoes this month and took a little trip to visit friends in NYC but managed a no buy for makeup! I also did a small clothing declutter this month because I want to manage my wardrobe inventory the same way I'm managing my makeup inventory, keeping the numbers from going up. I actually really think going over my full makeup inventory again this month helped motivate me to not buy anything because looking at the size of it all really scares me straight. I'm proud of myself! ---------------------------------------------- #nobuy2018 #lowbuy2018 #projectpancommunity #projectpancommunity2018 #useitup #lowbuy #nobuy #usewhatyouhave #makeuprehab #panning
As late as I've ever been - finally posting May empties! 🗑️
Not so many revelations and in-depth reviews but a quick overview:
✔️ NovAge SPF 30 was my everyday sun protection, now switched to SPF 50 ☀
special cleansing gel is the best cleanser for my skin - leaving it feel clean, fresh and not dry
✔️ BoroPlus cream is a weird find but works so well as "overall hydrator" and heals small irritation well
✅ Lots of everyday Oriflame products that are just simple basic essentials
Last haul for a while, really excited to use these! Been having a lot of fun with my Gemini palette. But I cannot handle anymore at the moment so I won't be purchasing 27. Wished they released in year of each other. Plan is to pan 20 shadows beforw I purchase any more. What are your goals right now?
TODAY IS THE DAY: it's been two months since I managed not to buy any polish🎉it isn't easy, but I must going on. I want to be grateful to those who supported me and taught me little tricks to become aware❤️ special thanks to my lovely friend @gingerbricknails
😘❤️🌸🌸🌸🌸. This one is 224 Rose ballet #lorealnailpolish

Last night's outfit for cocktails & food with bae 💓💃I couldn't resist a photo with this wall 🙌 Check out my story or 'outfits' highlight for outfit details x
I've been really enjoying second hand shopping and making my own outfits lately! You can get something so much more unique when you're not shopping high street.. I'm so over fast fashion.. my high street shopping count for 2018 has been 2 hats and 2 pairs of boots - because I have yet to master the skill of making shoes - and when I do make a purchase I consider it so much more than I used to. If I won't get #30wears
MINIMUM then it's not coming home with me! #nobuy2018 #capsulewardrobechallenge #capsulewardrobe
No buy/ low buy update! I knew this month was going to be tough because I was going to drag con with my sister and I was right but not for the reasons I thought. Here's all the makeup I bought this month. I also bought a silly game for my 3DS, some underwear I needed, accidentally a sub box for fiber for spinning into yarn I thought I had cancelled but actually paused last year for like 6 months, and a new air filter for my allergies. Lots of random purchases this month. Swipe for my 2018 goals and progress. --------------- I'm actually only unhappy I bought this liquid lipstick because I didn't check the ingredients because I bought it at the convention and I was so excited just to see all the sugarpill people my brain stopped working and it had just come out so I was like buy buy buy. I had wanted the 2 single eyeshadows for a little while and am so happy with them - they actually summarize the vibe of what I wanted from modern renaissance but wasn't able to get from that palette in the way I wanted so I'm destashing MR. Back to the lipstick, it has parabens and I have been doing paraben free/phthalate free for a while so even though there are studies calling parabens safe it still kinda super weirds me out to use it. It's their only product with parabens I've ever seen so I thought I was ok buying it having seen the ingredients on their other liquid lipsticks. I actually love the color and I like their formula but I'm too freaked out to use it. What do you guys think about parabens? Do you try to avoid them? Some of my family members have hypothyroidism but I haven't gotten it yet but I feel extra concerned about endocrine disruptors in general. I probably will have to pass this lipstick to a friend because it kinda freaks me out to put it on my mouth. Oh well. Drag con was fun! ------------------- On to the second picture. The fenty gloss formula is one of my favorites so I'm totally digging this pack - enough that I want the other set that's part of this collection but I'm going to try to restrain myself because I have hit my low buy limit for gloss. The palette was definitely a stress buy. I still really like it though and have been using it a lot.
I’ve been too busy lately to post my #empties
but here are some that I’ve finished in the last few months. I would repurchase everything here. Honestly. I’m quite sad looking at all these amazing products and knowing I don’t get to RP until more of my stash is gone. Well, except for my @Farmacy
cleansing balm. I repurchased that asap as I had no other cleansing balm in my stash. #sorrynotsorry #nobuy2018

No buy fail .-. This is my first stress buy of the year, which almost six months in is not too bad. In general I'm managing my stress a little better this year so far, partially because the panning community here and the makeup rehab subreddit have been pretty helpful for me. I have bought some random stuff that I thought was really pretty or a hole in my collection this year but I haven't done any 'retail therapy' until this. It was a perfect storm - something I had thought I might be interested in was on sale, something new came out that I liked, and I was feeling majorly stressed out last week. I'm feeling good today, but I feel I didn't need this purchase. I'm still happy with it though.
-------------------------------------------- The glosses fit into my low buy rules just fine but I'm trying to do an eyeshadow palette no buy this year. I think I maybe should've tried a palette low buy but so far each purchase I've combined with destashing or at least depotting a palette. I recently decided to destash my modern renaissance so I guess it was easier for my brain to feel ok picking up something new. I typically love UD eyeshadow formula and love color and have wanted to get some of these 'transformy duochromes' because I never picked up the alchemist palette or similar shades so this palette will fill some hole in my collector's heart. I can't think of anything else I really have been wanting in terms of types of eyeshadows lately, so hopefully that lasts me a little longer and I can make it through the rest of the year reducing instead of replacing. I've also noticed myself leaning toward using more deeper shades for a lot more depth in my looks instead of just brights as a result of panning subculture so I've been more attracted to this palette recently. I had seen it last year and thought about it but finally was able to wait until an UD palette was on sale because UD palettes tend to go heavily on sale not too long after release (maybe a few months). I'm pretty excited to play with it.
