Project 10 Pan!

So before summer I had decided to try a project 10 pan but I don't really wear makeup in the summer so that did not work out for me. But I am back to give it a second try. Hopefully it works out for me and I can save some good money lol. Here are the 10 items I included in this project.
Bonne Bell Blend-n-Glow: As you can see I only have the very edge to go. I really like this highlighter. I apply it with the ELF concealer brush (the $1 one) and blend it out with my fingers.

Maybelline Smooth Mousse Foundation in Natural Beige: I absolutely love this foundation! I've heard people say it might not work for oily skin but that is not true. Just set it with a powder and you are good to go. It really leave a natural finish and has great coverage and evens out my skin amazingly. My favorite foundation I've ever tried to be completely honest.

NYC Bronzer in Sunny: Nice matte bronzer: It's only a tad bit darker than my skin color so I can easily use it for a nice all over glow. Not so easy to contour with but I can pack it on to make it work. Sadly mine broke into a few pieces but it's still useable!

Revlon Creme Shadow Quad in Precious Metals: I really like the last three colors for bases. The silver did not work for me so I don't even bother with it. These shadows are starting to dry out on me so I want to use as much as I can without feeling like I've "wasted" product.

Claudia Stevens Primer: This is a clear primer. Works nicely. Of course how much is left in the tube is not visible but I can feel it running low.

BareMinerals concealer in Bisque: This is a sample size that comes in the starter kit. It gives really nice coverage on blemishes and feels nice on the skin.

NYX Concealer Stick in Green: I really like this for the redness around my nose. It really brightens up the area.

Covergirl Lip Slick in Demure: This has taken me a while to finish up and I use it every day to prime my lips for my lipstick. It's a good amount of product. If you're looking for something with a lot of color payoff you won't find it in this. Not the most moisturizing but it gets the job done.

Maybelline Shine Sensational in Berry Dazzle: This is a nice natural shine high color. It's not a heavy or very sticky gloss. This particular shade is more shine than color.

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Sunset: I absolutely love this color. It's so natural and the formula for the lipstick is really nice. This is the product I will miss the most when it's gone because this shade is discontinued :(.

I will definitely be updating on my progress, probably, once a month until I'm done.

Nails: Sally Hansen Salon Effects Strips in Squeezed

So the other day I at Walgreens and I picked these up. I also got Electric Shock. Both were on sale for $2.59. On the box these claim to last for 10 days. Hmmm I wonder if that statement is true. Let's find out!

2 packs of nail polish strips, 2 tools, and a booklet of instructions.

Each package comes with 8 different sized strips.

The above two photos were taken a day after I put on the strips. A DAY. So I decided to cut my nails. Since the peeling was happening at the tips I thought maybe it was because my nails were too long.
Yeah that did not help. Nail polish that lasts up to 10 days? Only wishful thinking.
