Finish 6 By Christmas - Update 1

Quick update on my Project Pan!

Finished a little bit more on Penny. Not much, but party season is coming so I'm hoping to use it more.

A lot of progress on Black Velvet! I should be able to finish it this project.

Tons of progress on Mink as well and I've hit pan on Barely Beige!

I don't think I used this at all, surprisingly.

A little bit more gone on the lotion!

Daisy is finished! I don't think I used either of the other two at all.

October Nail Polish Colours

I still haven't done anything with my nails. I feel like I'm on a nail hiatus, but really I'm just too lazy. If I don't start painting again in 2016, I'll just drop this series all together.

ipsy - September 2015

I used up some points this month.

Tarte LipSurgence Skintuitive Lip Gloss in Energy - I really regret spending 500 points on this. There's barely any colour and it's sticky.

Touch In Sol - Stretchex Stretch Lash Effect Mascara - This was 250 points. Really can't have enough mascara samples since I don't wear it often and therefore it dries out on me.

MicaBeauty Felt Tip Eyeliner - This is okay but I don't think it was worth the 500 points I spent on it. Again they tend to dry out on me fast and so little samples don't hurt.

September was another clutch winner! The products inside were another story.

Included in this month's bag:
  • treStiQue Mini Matte Lip Crayon in Nantucket Nude - sample size 0.02oz - full size 0.02oz $10.67
  • Evelyn Iona Cosmetics Cream Blush in Ash - sample size 0.06oz $12 - full size 0.11oz $22
  • Bayberry Naturals Rosehip & Hibiscus Moisturizer - sample size 15mL $1.98 - full size 136mL $17.95
  • NYX Eyeshadow Trio - sample size 3g - full size 3g $9
  • Vasanti Brighten Up! - sample size 20g - full size 20g $10
Retail value of September's bag: $43.65 ($10.35 less than last month)

This one wasn't too bad. I'm using the exfoliator right now and so I'll just use this one right afterwards. Everything else will go into use up piles.
