{p10p} 3 more gone, only 2 left!

So glad I started this Project 10 Pan Challenge. I've been spending less money on buying products to try and figuring out what I really love. My dresser space is becoming steadily cleaner as this challenge progresses. I have already started items for my next p10p quest - which will involve makeup items, opposed to body care items. Now for a quick overview of them items featured.

Suave Advance Therapy Body Lotion: Very thin formula, has a masculine smells, so it's not overwhelming. Does give some moisturizer, but skins in quickly and doesn't retain for very long. Had a long list of chemical ingredients, which is a little scary as this does absorb into the skin, those chemicals can enter the blood stream...

VS Love Spell body spray: The Love Spell scent has been my favorite from VS, but I am so glad I have almost used this up. I don't tend to use fragrances, save for scented deodorant and the occasional spritz of perfume for special occasions. I still have an almost unused large bottle, which I have no clue how to use other than to use! (Does that make sense?)

Vaseline Healthy Hand and Nail lotion: This works pretty decently. It's small enough to tote around in a bag and doesn't open without you want it to (have had a problem with other lotions). The formula is a bit thin, so it sinks into the skin quickly, making you apply a lot more at a time. Also, this has a baby powder smell, didn't enjoy that much, but your getting what you pay for.

{November & December Faves} Happy New Year!

November and December Favorites!

Organix Moroccan Argan Oil: shampoo, conditioner, and oil
I just love how soft and silky this trio makes my hair. I've done a separate review on this here.

Cover Girl nature luxe mousse mascara (very black)
This was given to my by a friend and has been my go-to mascara everyday. It feels weightless and really helps to define my lashes nicely. Definitely will repurchase. 

Bliss hand cream
Has a wonderful faint citrus smell and is very moisturizing. I purchased the smaller tube at $8, but would love to buy the bigger version. This is a perfect size for fitting in one's bag. 

Studio Tools Dual-Finish Skunk Brush
I take back what I said about the Sigma Brush being my favorite, this one from studio tools is now! I've been using this since November, but have had it for over a year. I got fed up with picking brush fibers off my face while applying my BB Cream from the Sigma Brush. This one does not leave any hair behind, scare for a few loose one after cleaning, and gives a flawlessly blended look. I think this was around $6 when I bought it, but could be higher now. I might by another as a backup.

Sephora Waterproof eyeliner (01 black)
This was part of my last haul, when I made my video, but I think I might have forgotten to include. This is an amazing eyeliner. I use this for tight-lining my eyes and for the bottom lashline. Stays in place does not move after setting and it blendable when first applied. I think I need to purchase more of this... possibly in different colors!

Blistex Five Star Lip Protection
I have always loved Blistex chapsticks, used them since at least Kindergarten if not before. This one leaves a nice shine on the lips and is very moisturizing, I use before applying any color to my lips as it helps to even the lines on the skin of the lips. Smell is fragrant, but not overwhelming like the Silk and Shine, also smaller, so it's easier to carry. 

Burt's Bees 100% Natural Lip Balm
I love how this is thick and leaves a minty smell and tingle after using, however not so great if applying lipstick, because it's wax based and can cause uneven application. Still a great moisture retaining formula.

Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Dark Circle Roller
Great under-eye concealer, does not dry out the area, leaves a dewy finish and covers decently. It is a rather sheer formula, but can build. I put this under my bb cream and blend in with the skunk brush. Perfect for more natural looks.

I hope you all had a safe and wonderful New Years celebration and a good time! I'm going to crank out a few more post before the new semester starts, which looks a bit heavy at the moment. Thank you for continuing to check out my blog post and commenting :] I love reading them! Anything you are looking forward to in 2012? Me, I'm excited about the Hunger Game movie~!
