Minimal Makeup Bag: If I Could Only Keep One in Every Category

Even though I love beauty, I often feel like my collection got a bit out of hand recently and I wish that I had much less variety in some of the categories. In turn, I thought it’d be fun to go through my collection and pick one product in each category that I would keep if I had to only choose one. Now I wanted to be quite free with the selection so I didn’t exclude limited edition products or only picked the products I’ve used the most in that category. I am however excluding past favourites that didn’t get re-purchased (yet) because I still have some self-restraint. Continue reading “Minimal Makeup Bag: If I Could Only Keep One in Every Category”

Rolling Project Pan Update #5

It’s no surprise that I have abandoned this blog for the last half a year while trying to figure out things in my life. Admittedly, the biggest reason why I stopped blogging was because I felt I was buying too much makeup and didn’t feel good about where my collection was going. But the truth is I love makeup and always finding myself coming back so here we are. I thought I’d start with a project pan update because while I pretty much stopped tracking all the products per se, I finally hit my goal on one very challenging product. I am also having a bit of an overhaul of the project so this will be a long post. Continue reading “Rolling Project Pan Update #5”

Rolling Project Pan Update #4

This update is definitely long overdue (#3 was published on Mar 31st) and I think I reached a point with this project when I’m not as excited as I was at the beginning. To be fair, in order to see progress on some of the products, I’ve neglected others and even then, it’s taken me longer to get there than I initially thought. I’ve not been too good focusing on some of the products and the prospects of adding in extra just doesn’t appeal to me so I’m rolling in less than I’m rolling out.

Monochrome Cool Brown Makeup Look

Today’s post is mostly inspired by the latest addition to my lipstick wardrobe in the form of the new Chanel Matte Lip Crayon in Hazelnut and while I might have originally been drawn to it because well, I love hazelnuts, it quickly became the cool nude I always looked for and could never find.

Best Browny Nude Lipsticks

I am very much a nude lipstick afficionado with strong leanings towards the deeper end of the spectrum considering my skin tone. You won’t really catch me wearing anything paler than Nars Barbara or Charlotte Tilbury Very Victoria but I already spoke of these two and actually recently ran out of Barbara and decided not to repurchase before I get through some of my other lipsticks. For the purpose of this post, I am talking all my favourite deeper nudes if you have lighter skin tone or simply nudes if you’re darker. Continue reading “Best Browny Nude Lipsticks”
