Winter has always been pretty tough on my skin. I think my skin really changed when I moved to Ottawa for university. The winters there are pretty harsh and they really managed to draw out the moisture from my skin. I also started using a skincare product line a year or so into university that didn’t mesh with my skin at all. So I’ve just always been trying to recover from that. Luckily moving back to the Toronto area has helped my skin in the winter time a bit. It still feels fairly dry and flakey but I’ve recently found a product that has almost changed the game for how hydrated my skin feels.
Every other week I try out 5 products and use them every single day for a week. This helps to give me a better understanding of exactly how I feel about the products. It sometimes forces me to use products that I rarely reach for or ones that I might have forgotten about.
I’m super excited that I’ve started to bring back my Makeup Bag Monday series. Spreading these posts out is working out great for me so far!
I’m really happy with all of the products that I picked out this week and I think they really brought me out of my comfort zone. It had me use some products that have just been sitting around collecting dust in my collection lately.
I’m so excited that I recently went through a ton of skincare and haircare products. After deciding to pull together a project pan I’m hoping I’ll be able to add more makeup products to my empties posts. I find makeup just takes a million years to actually use up.
After moving at the end of last year and having more limited funds for a bit I wanted to try to use up a lot of the hair and skin care samples I had in my collection. I also just wanted to try to get rid of a lot of stuff since I don’t have as much storage space as I maybe need for the amount of product that I own.
Going into the new year I’m completely overwhelmed by my makeup collection. I’ve always been a little overwhelmed by it. With moving at the end of last year it really hit me as to just how much I have and how much product I rarely use. I’d like to make more of an effort in using up products and keep track of just how much I’m able to use up this year.
As a way to kind of get the ball rolling I decided to pick out 18 products that I would like to focus on panning/using up in 2018. I think this is a bit of a hefty goal but I might as well at least give it a try.
As of lately I’ve been way more into using regular lipsticks in bullet form compared to liquid lipsticks. Which is crazy because I used to be ride or die for liquid lipsticks. I just want something that is comfortable on my lips now and that usually isn’t a characteristic of most liquid lipsticks. But I’m still a big fan of matte lipsticks so I’m constantly on the hunt for the perfect comfortable matte lipstick.
When I saw the Too Faced Peach Kiss lipsticks release I knew I needed all of them. I didn’t purchase them originally because of that reason. I was afraid of falling in love and feeling like I should buy them all. Well, after trying them out that’s definitely starting to happen. I purchased these in such a short time and I’m constantly eyeing up the other colours in the collection.
