The lovely Ingrid from Curly Spring Blossom has once again convinced me to take part in a new project pan – this time a Spring Cleaning Project Pan. This one is a little different than the previous ones, as we will be only posting once a month with our progress and reviewing four of the sixteen products to be panned.
Today is the second month check-in and update and review of four of the products! I’ve been pretty good about using every product at least once or twice a week, and for some products, I’m using them more than that.
Concrete Minerals Bitches Brew
I’ve been wearing this shadow a lot over the past month, it is such a beautiful duochrome shadow, described on the Concrete Mineral site as an electric lavender w/ golden-orange shift. My original review and swatches are here. I absolutely love this one!
TheBalm Meet Matt(e) Trimony Matt Moskowitz
I’ve been wearing this matte plum toned shadow quite a bit, it works well with so many shadows in my collection. It is highly pigmented and long wearing. I got this in my first ever Ipsy Glam Bag – the original unboxing review is here.
Tarte Maracuja Oil
I’ve had samples of this facial oil many times over the years, this most recent one came in my December Ipsy Glam Bag. I think that this is the very first facial oil that I had ever tried. It came in handy during our recent cold snap as my skin became super dry, and this helped my skin recover. I’ve been putting a few drops in with my moisturizer for an added moisture boost.
Haus of Gloi Pumpkin Butter Rosy Cheeked
Haus of Gloi Pumpkin Butters are my all time favourite body moisturizers. They come in both their general catalogue (permanent scents) and their seasonal (limited edition) scents. I have several of these Pumpkin Butters in my stash, they are thick and highly moisturizing without being greasy. Rosy Cheeked is a seasonal scent from their Yule collection, and the scent is a blend of pink grapefruit, fir needles, juniper berries, rosemary, parsley and winter lillies. I love these scented pumpkin butters, because they are beautifully scented, but not over-powering.
Now for a little science on all sixteen of the products! I borrowed Stashy’s scientific method for measuring progress – I’ve weighed each of the products on my new little kitchen scale, so I can keep track of how much I will have used up each month.
Despite using all of the makeup items several times each week for the past month, there is very little change on the scales – so frustrating! I can definitely see progress with the non-makeup items though!
