Call me critical but I have always seen Estee Lauder as more of an "old lady" brand. The one my mom uses...
I had heard that Michael Khors had done a collaboration with the brand to create the Hollywood collection. Since I am a fan of MK I looked at the collection and walked out with a few things.
His collection is broken down between Bel Air Beige, and Rodeo Pink
The main item from the collection I wanted and walked out with was the blush. There are 2 a pink and a peach but I came out with the more peach one in coral sunset. Really like this!
I also purchased some lipsticks and a gloss from the love collection? Pardon me if I am incorrect I do not really follow the collections for this brand but aren't they cute??
I have not used these yet because I am determine to finish up some of my other lip products before cracking these open. I can't wait. I tried them on in the store and they are great colors for spring.
Free Samples-great for traveling-I gave these to me mom though
I have to admit even though I do like these products I really do not like the packaging. Normally they have the dark blue casings but these were gold and beige. According to trends, beige is in? Alot of blogs I read think this casing was refreshing but I thought it looked even older and could have came out of my grand mothers bamboo purse...
Other than that I can see the brand is trying to branch out to the younger ladies and I am loving their new colors.
I am going on vacation soon so have been looking for more travel friendly make up. I picked up a benefits value package, mainly to try out Hoola bronzer. (used for a contour on myself)
From MAC over the last few weeks I picked up Tempting eye shadow (not pictured) along with Shale and Teddy Eye Khol
I really really really like Teddy. I remember I had the black eye khol from MAC years ago and dumped it because it is really smudgy. I was worried the same would happen with Teddy but it stays more precise in my opinion. A really pretty bronzy brown. Softer eye looks. Been using this non stop!
More lip products I had gotten last month but have yet to use. I need to finish some old stuff first. Some VS glosses, a balm in Dark Chocolate Peppermint ( sounds delicious!!) Rimmel lipstick in summer angel, and another VS gloss.
My lipstick/gloss drawer is getting pretty crampt!~
Now for the announcement.
I have started project 10 pan-this is really going to do me some good. I have been trying to save money for my vacation later on this month and I really want to use up some of my perfectly good half used older products because I need to make space and stop buying so much.
Here is the round up
The Make up
The skin care
I started P10P about 1 week and a half ago and its hard...hahaha I have to avoid drugstores, make up sales, and Sephoras everywhere.
It is getting easier, I actually walked into CVS with a hand full of items and put them all back one by one, I was crazy lol.
Since I have been trying to use the same thing everyday alot of these items are going pretty quickly!
The toner, the multi cleanser, the hand cream, and the BB cream are all done! Yay!
The concealer is close and the lip gloss is half done. I think think the mascaras are coming to their ends but I really cannot tell..also the mask has about 2 more sessions before I am through. The acne serum should be done by next week.
Hopefully this can put a half on my spending on my every growing make up collection!
Have a great weekend!
