Rocky Horror Picture Show Project Finale

As some of you know, last April I began a project based on the soundtrack to one of my favorite movies, Rocky Horror Picture Show.

I chose 5 songs and products to go along with the theme.

  1. Over at the Frankenstein Place – Mac Trolls Play it Proper highlighter ~ I wanted to hit pan and I did! I made a whole post about it because I was so excited! I expanded the pan on my highlighter since hitting pan a couple of weeks ago. (See photo below)
  2. I can Make you a Man – Elf daily hydration moisturizer ~ I did not finish this but Im so close! Had I not used a different night time moisturizer, this product would have been finished. I will continue to use it until its finished.
  3. TouchA TouchA Touch Me –  travel size Origins Checks and Balances frothy face wash. ~ I finished this as well as another travel sized cleanser.
  4. Rose Tint my World / Wild and Untamed Thing –  Stila Glitter and Glow in Smoldering Satin. ~ I almost finished this but it dried out and its being decluttered.
  5. Im Going Home –  Boscia luminizing black mask ~ I finished this mask and ended up finishing other masks since.

These are the products I have left:

Did you do a Halloween project? How did you do?

October 2019 Empties

It was a pretty slow month for empties, but I managed to finish a shampoo!

I love the ion shampoo but after using it for almost 3 years – IM DONE! This shampoo does nothing for my hair anymore so I am glad to be done with it. I worked thru my backups so there are no more. We still use the conditioner – and have two more full sized bottles left. I use the ion conditioner when I color my hair fun colors.

I also wanted to talk about the Givenchy Volume Disturbia mascara. I received this back in June from Influenster and fell in love with this! I kept it a month more than I should have because I loved it so much. Its $27 at Sephora and after I finish off what I have on hand I will purchase.

This months empties total is $68.07!!

Did you finish a lot of products in October?

I hit pan on a full size highlighter!!!

Back in April, I began a RHPS Project Pan that will end on Halloween.

One of the products I put into this project is the Mac Cosmetics Play it Proper highlighter. I had barely used this product prior to this project so I just wanted to hit pan. At the time, I didnt even think I would hit pan – but guys…..I HIT PAN!!!!

Yes, this is a spoiler to the RHPS Project Pan, but Im so excited about this. I have never hit pan on a full size highlighter.

My full update on this project will be posted after Halloween but I just could not wait!

Have you ever hit pan or finished a full size highlighter?

 

August 2019 Empties

Somehow time is passing by and I realized I am WAY behind on posting. Again, we are nearly at the end of September and I havent even posted my empties for August.

It was another light month for empties.

This month I finished 6 perfume samples!

I finished my favorite cleanser as well as a Bobbi Brown eyeshadow stick -which were both in a recent project and a Lush soap bar.

This months empties total is $36.64!!

I havent finished any other project pan products since May even though I have tried. I took a month off of panning, especially since my Spring into Summer project was a complete fail.

And Im back with a ‘NEW” Project 10 Pan that will hopefully be as successful as the first half of the year.

The products I will be working on are (some have been rolled back into this project):

  1. Ulta eye primer*
  2. Mac Oil Control Lotion*
  3. Becca First Light Priming Filter*
  4. Essence Make Me Brow
  5. Laura Geller Lip Strip
  6. Sephora Lip Balm
  7. BareMinerals Concealer
  8. Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder
  9. Elf Brow Wax*
  10. BareMinerals Lasting Line

July 2019 Empties

We are already at the end of August and I realized that I havent posted my empties for the month of July. So, without further ado, here are my empties for July.

This months empties total is $42.68!!

I was most impressed with the Pixi Glow Tonic and I am not surprised that it has a cult following. I had definite results by the end of the bottle. I have repurchased but I do have to use up a few other toners before I can open another. Its safe to say that Pixi will now be my toner of choice.

My year end total so far is a little over $900!!!! How are you doing this year on using up products? Are you keeping track?

Let me know in the comments!

This months empties total is $70.39!!

For July I am going to be concentrating on finishing up a lot of the deluxe sized face masks I had begun for the May Mask Challenge.
