Project Pan Round 1 – Update #9

This week’s update comes a bit late again because I was traveling this weekend, but here it is:

1- MAC Lipglass in Pink Lemonade: I’ve used it a couple of times this week, there’s probably no visible progress, though.

2 – MAC Plushglass in Bubble Tea: I’ve also used it a couple of times this week, I’ve been really into the look of glossy lips lately.

3 – Contém 1g (brazilian brand) Lip Pencil in Pele Rosado (or Flesh Pink): I haven’t used it this week.

4 – MAC Lipstick in Please Me: I’ve been constantly using it.

5 – Shiseido Sun Protection Eye Cream SPF 32: I’ve been using it everyday, there’s visible progress on the packaging now.

6 – Benefit Ooh La Lift: I’ve been using it everyday.

7 – Benefit Erase Paste in number 2 (medium): Finished it March 27th.

#7 Replacements: NARS radiant Creamy concealer in Honey and NYX HD Concealer in Light: I’ve been using both constantly. I’m enjoying the look both of these products give.

8 – Benefit Eyebrow Pencil in Medium: Finished it May 9th.

9 – Benefit Eye Bright: Used it up April 11th.

10 – Benefit Porefessional: I’ve been using it everyday. There’s maybe a week left of product in it. We’ll see.

11 – NARS Orgasm blush: I’ve been concentrating on using up the broken pieces, I believe there’s visible progress since last week.

12 – Bare Minerals Original Foundation in Light (deluxe size): used it up March 21st.

 13 – Maybelline Great Lash mascara Lots of Lashes in brownish black: I’m still using it, it hasn’t dried up yet, still works.

14 – Shiseido Perfect Mascara: I haven’t used it.

15 – Maybelline The Colossal: I haven’t used it.

16 – Benefit Bad Gal mascara sample: used it up April 24th.

 

Since I travelled this weekend, I haven’t necessarily used the project pan products everyday, because I wanted to change it up a bit and also didn’t want to take my NARS blush with me since it’s so fragile. But I’m still excited to be doing this project pan, it’s so fun seeing progress on your products, you know? I believe next week I’ll have a new finished product to show you.

 

Have you hit pan or finished any makeup products lately?

Benefit Eye Bright Review

So, I’ve finished this a while ago in my project pan and usually I do a review the same week I finish a product, but this review was kind of hard to do.

After I finished it in my project pan, I opened the back up I have of it and was using it for a couple of days so I could try to make my mind up of how I feel about this product but I’m not really sure.

 

 

Benefit Eye Bright

 

 

It is a product nobody ever talks about it, maybe because it’s an old one? I don’t know. I haven’t looked for reviews online because I didn’t want to “contaminate” what I think about this product with other people’s opinion.

 

On Benefit’s website it says “This instant eye brightener is like a nap in a stick! Perfect for all skin tones, this pink perk-me-up brightens your eyes and your spirits in a single stroke. Apply it to the inner & outer corners of each eye and blend for a wide-awake look. For best results, apply as the final step after you’ve applied other makeup”. I’ve tried wearing this like they said and also as kind of a corrector before concealer but I feel like normally it just doesn’t look so great, either way. I feel like maybe it’s too cool for my very warm skin.

As you can see from the swatch above it seems to have glitter but it’s not very noticeable once applied, it just seems glowy . And it is also a bit pinker, in this picture it looks very white.

 

Normally it does not blend seamlessly, specially in the humid and warm weather where I live, it feels like it will just melt away on your skin but sometimes when I’ve used it, I was able to get a nice and discreet highlighting effect above my brow bone, so go figure. You should definitely not over apply it so it’s easier to blend. It does give a bright eye effect sometimes and other times it makes my eyes look tiny because of its cool tone.

It is definitely not a must have product and it’s very expensive for what it is at 20 US dollars. It is just one of those products I don’t remember to reach for, and when I do, I have already finished up my makeup and it is hard to apply it because I get the best results when I apply it with my fingers, and I tend to smear my eyeliner if I do that, so I should remember to use it before applying the rest of my makeup but I just don’t.

 

Maybe if you have cool toned skin and live in cold and dry weather you would get along just fine with this product. I won’t be repurchasing it when I’m done with my back ups, but will keep using it looking for those rare occasions when I can make it work for me.

 

Have you tried this product? What do you think of it? Does it work for you?

1 – MAC Lipglass in Pink Lemonade: I’ve been using it everyday paired with Please Me.

2 – MAC Plushglass in Bubble Tea: I haven’t used it this week.

3 – Contém 1g (brazilian brand) Lip Pencil in Pele Rosado (or Flesh Pink): I haven’t used it this week.

4 – MAC Lipstick in Please Me: I’ve used it everyday, I’ve made quite a dent on this lipstick so far.

 

5 – Shiseido Sun Protection Eye Cream SPF 32: I’ve been using it everyday.

6 – Benefit Ooh La Lift: I’ve used it everyday.

7 – Benefit Erase Paste in number 2 (medium): Finished it March 27th

#7 Replacements: NARS Radiant Creamy concealer in Honey and NYX HD concealer in Light: I’ve used both concealers everyday.

8 – Benefit Eyebrow Pencil in Medium: Finished it last week, May 9th, I believe.

9 – Benefit Eye Bright: Used it up April 11th.

10 – Benefit Porefessional: I’ve been using it everyday, it is almost gone.

12 – Bare Minerals Original Foundation in Light (deluxe size): used it up March 21st.

 13 – Maybelline Great Lash mascara Lots of Lashes in brownish black: I’ve been using it everyday and am really surprised about how long it is taking this mascara to dry up. It’s been open for so long and I’ve been using it everyday for the past 2 months and it’s shown no signs of drying up.

14 – Shiseido Perfect Mascara: I haven’t used it.

15 – Maybelline The Colossal:  I haven’t used it.

16 – Benefit Bad Gal mascara sample: I used it up April 24th.

 

This week I finally bought that blush I talked about on my introduction post. The Fantasy of Flowers collection by MAC finally came to Brazil and I snatched up the Petal Power blush. It was the only makeup product I decided to allow myself to buy during my no buy because of the fact that it was limited edition. I haven’t used it yet because I’m focusing on finishing up my NARS Orgasm but they are very similar shades, so I’ll have a replacement when I finish the NARS one.

 

I think I’m doing pretty well on my project pan, don’t you? I believe in a week or two I’ll have some more finished products to show you.

Project Pan Round 1 – Update #7

This update comes a bit late this week because I couldn’t get around to posting it, but here it is now:

1- MAC Lipglass in Pink Lemonade: I’ve used it a couple times this week but there’s no visible progress. I’ve been pairing it with Please me lipstick and they just go together so well. I’ll probably continue using this combination this week.

2 – MAC Plushglass in Bubble Tea: I haven’t used it this week.

3 – Contém 1g (brazilian brand) Lip Pencil in Pele Rosado (or Flesh Pink): I haven’t used it this week.

4 – MAC Lipstick in Please Me: I’ve used it every day this week.

5 – Shiseido Sun Protection Eye Cream SPF 32: I’ve been using it everyday.

6 – Benefit Ooh La Lift: I’ve been using it everyday.

7 – Benefit Erase Paste in number 2 (medium): Finished it March 27th.

#7 Replacements: NARS radiant Creamy concealer in Honey and NYX HD Concealer in Light: I’m still mostly using the NARS one.

8 – Benefit Eyebrow Pencil in Medium: I believe this is finally finished, I don’t think I can sharpen it anymore. I’ll try to find a way to sharpen it one more time because I want to truly finish it up, but if I can’t, I’ll toss it.

 

 

9 – Benefit Eye Bright: Used it up April 11th.

10 – Benefit Porefessional: I’ve been using it everyday, it is definitely on its last leg.

11 – NARS Orgasm blush: So, tragedy struck my project pan this week. My beloved Orgasm blush fell on the floor and it broke! I am incredibly heartbroken over this, I may sound like a drama queen but I honestly felt terribly sad (and still am a lit bit) when it happened. Aside from it being my favorite blush, I was really enjoying seeing the pan getting bigger every week. I still can’t get over the fact that I was so careless and let it fall on the ground.

12 – Bare Minerals Original Foundation in Light (deluxe size): used it up March 21st.

 13 – Maybelline Great Lash mascara Lots of Lashes in brownish black: I’ve been using it everyday, it is still going strong but it worries me that it’s been open for too long. I’m still thinking about tossing it.

14 – Shiseido Perfect Mascara: I haven’t used it. It may go into the trash once I decide to toss my Lots of Lashes.

15 – Maybelline The Colossal: I haven’t used it this week.

16 – Benefit Bad Gal mascara sample: I used it up April 24th.

 

Have you every gone through the same tragedy (drama queen) as I have? How did you handle it?
