I'm pleased to announce that I have completed Project 5 Pan, and will more than likely never do it again. What misery! Day after day I would coat my lips in the same product--it was the most uncreative outlet that someone with a love of makeup could throw themselves into. I suppose I don't mind that I go through my items slowly--I'm just not going to set myself up for a month of boredom like that again. I now present to you those five pesky items that I finished off:
Mac Lipgelee in Valentine, Hard Candy Brow Pencil,
Stila Lip Glazes in Peach Cobbler & Praline,
DiorShow Mascara in Black
It's done done done, and I couldn't be happier about it--so, of course I have been out and about stocking up on new items--the latest of which has been Christian Siriano's limited edition line for Victoria's Secret.
I absolutely love the packaging on this stuff--it's a little lighter weight than it appears in photos, but is still very pretty and a bit punk. It reminds me of this ring that I sometimes wear:
As nothing in the line is above a $20 price point, it is very affordable, and the colors (even the shadows--I plan to pick up Oasis, as it was sold out) are very smooth and have good color payoff. I opted for the kajal liner--which is a creamy and smooth deep black--as well as the bronzer. The bronzer is tri-colored, with a highlighting shade included--although it has a bit of shimmer, it is very light and not at all over the top in the glitter department.
Victoria's Secret has done it again with a lovely limited edition line, and this may call for backups.
Are you planning on picking up any of the Christian Siriano items?
