Project 10 Pan - Round 5

Hey everyone! It's time again for another Project 10 Pan blog post! I absolutely love doing these because I can share with you which products that I am getting rid of and you get a bonus mini-review on each item! 

ELF Makeup Mist & Set (x2) - This is a holy grail product for me and I use it both under and over my makeup. I have a few back-ups and absolutely love this product. It is also very affordable as you can purchase this on the ELF web site for $3 USD.

Benefit The Pore-fessional (sample size - 3.0 ml, 0.10 US fl.oz) - In my last Project 10 Pan blog post, you can see that I used up a full size of this product. I do really like it as it minimizes my larger pores and it feels great on the skin! I also carried this with me in my travel makeup bag when I was in various locations and it barely took up any room! You do get quite a bit of product in this little tube so don’t let the size fool you!

MAC Painterly Paint Pot - I don’t know about you, but my MAC paint pots always dry up on me before I can actually finish one up! Let me know if you were lucky enough to ever go through an entire paint pot! This shade was way too pink on my skin tone and next time, I think that I will be purchasing ‘Soft Ochre’ which is more of a yellow toned paint pot. This one is going Back To Mac.

MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack - I had this for quite some time and it has completely dried up on me. I prefer the gel liner by Bobbi Brown and I have been getting into liquid liner lately. For those reasons, I will not be repurchasing any time soon but perhaps in the future I will.

Morphe Concealer in Beige - I feel like I have spoken about this product so much now that I’m excited to get rid of it and not use it again. The colour was a weird peach/salmon shade, the consistency was clumpy and thick. I don’t know if I got a bad batch but the only pro I can think of is the price point as it retails for $4.99 USD on the Morphe web site. I honestly use up all of my products but there is still a little bit in the tube and I can’t get myself to finish this product because it is so awful.

Makeup Forever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation in 117 = Y225 Marble - I received a deluxe sample of this on the Sephora web site when using a promo code. I do like it and I would say that it is a medium coverage foundation that is buildable. I favour more full coverage foundations in general but this shade matched me perfectly! It is hard for me to find a foundation to match we well and this Makeup Forever Ultra HD got it right! The price tag is a little steep at $52 CAD and I don’t think I would purchase the full sized foundation because I have other foundations to go through at the moment. I also have others that I much prefer currently. I would only used this foundation when it was mixed with another one (as seen in my Purple & Copper Eyes video,) specifically the Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation in the shade 3.0. This foundation alone was too greasy on my oily skin and I felt extremely greasy throughout the day even if I blotted and touched up with powder.

CoverGirl The Super Sizer Mascara in Very Black - I bought this on sale at the drugstore for 50% off the original price I believe. I did really enjoy using it and the wand was quite different. I like the colours on the packaging which really caught my eye. I like trying out different mascaras all the time and for that reason, I can’t say if I would repurchase or not. There are so many innovative mascaras that are always coming out with celebrity endorsements, flattering packaging, great ads and marketing as well as new claims to their product. 

Flower Beauty Zoom-In Ultimate Mascara 3-in-1 in Intense Black - I found this to be a almost identical dupe for the Flormar Triple Action Mascara. I bought this on sale at Wal-Mart and I had never heard of this mascara before then. I did enjoy using it, it did not dry out on me but I feel like this mascara was kind of a gimmick.

Nivea Lip Butter in Raspberry Rose Kiss - This lasted me quite some time and I used it at night before bed. I did enjoy using it and the price point is very fair given the fact that you get 16.7 grams of product or 0.59 oz. It smells great and I have been using Nivea products for a long time. My Grandma also swears by Nivea products and uses them every single day! Her skin looks great!

Until next time,
