PxP is Over!

That's right folks...about one week ago, I finished Project 10 Pan. I can't believe I finally did it, but it's true. With the end of a Victoria's Secret lipstick in Xhibitionist (a fave that they no longer carry), and my very last brow pencil from old school Hard Candy (honestly, if there was ever anything this soft these days...), it's all over.

Meaning, I had to celebrate. So on over to Guerlain I went, with the hopes of loving the entire Terracotta Summer collection. It was all very nice, however, this project has given me a bit of a change of perspective when it comes to purchasing beauty products. If I don't work hard at using up the things I do have, they will ultimately go rancid before they will ever be used. No, this isn't rocket science..but when your hobby takes over more than what your vanity will allow, you need to draw a line. So of course, I picked up a bronzer (apparently this is where my reasonable thinking ended...but, I limited it to this). My apologies, but I can't resist a pretty bronzer. If that means that I'll have an eternal glow far into my 90's, so be it.

Look at the casing on this pretty little clam. It's half the fun! The shade that drew me, was the Brunette shade, but the artist kindly explained to me that I would be looking all kinds of oompa loompa if I were to attempt it. Although..now that I think of it, it wouldn't be bad after/during a vacation.

So anyhow, I got the Blonde shade. Never have I considered myself a blonde (although some of you may have), but this works fantastically on my skin. The slightest bit of pink blends naturally into medium skin, providing a healthy glow--not a burnt out mess. Yes, it does contain shimmer (due to the compacted mother of pearl), and also a faint floral scent. Either are overpowering, which is why it has been used daily for the past week.

Are those of you who participated in PxP still chugging along? Or did you finish before me (this wouldn't be a shock)? What's your favorite bronzer this Spring?

Congrats! I did exactly the same thing you did after I finished: I went shopping...

My fav bronzer is still Benefit's Hoola, but I'm growing suspicious towards it: it might break me out, which would clearly be a catastrophee, as I adore it... The Guerlain one looks beautiful! xxx

I used to have that one! And like you I had blonde as when i used my friend's bruentte it did turn me orange. So orange (and it was a dirty, muddy color) even Benny my friend wouldnt go there!! lol

Try the benefit eyebrow pencils..they are very soft but may not be dark enough on you.
xxox

@rocaille: yayyy..you finished too! congratulations! what did you buy to celebrate? makeup related?

hoola..that's one of the first bronzers I ever tried--purely because of the name! i hope that's not what's breaking you out :( xxx

@tali: oh GOOD! i'm glad i'm not the only brunette that has to buy the blonde item..hehe. your friend benny seems so funny--he is the standard for tan looks ;)

benefit pencil, huh? i've never even given them a look..will do! xxoxo

You should try the L'Oreal 'Extra-Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner'...(if you haven't already) They come in black, grey and brown. They are super soft and very dark. You might like it!

fantastic said...

@dye-a-graham: i like your name :) thank you, i will definitely check those out--hopefully they will work well on the brows!

GlossQueen said...

Congratulations! I'm still going with my P10P, I've got 3 products to go.

coffretgorge said...

oohh congrats on finishing your lippie and eyebrow pencil! the guerlain bronzer looks like a beautiful clam indeed :)

tina_mbc said...

Oh my, you DID IT!!!! Partyyyy!!!
Congratulations, I know how hard it is, and how long it takes, naturally you had to celebrate....!!!

The bronzer looks very pretty, I may need to check it out, I 'm gonna allow myself one bronzer purchase this summer!

And..well... my hobby does take more than my vanity allows... maybe... but I 'm tooo vain, lol! Any ideas about that, or am I doomed? Lol!

xxxx

su-pah said...

Wow!! Congrats! (applause!!)

Guerlain bronzers are the IT! What do they call them now... ''the rolls royce of the bronzer world''?
It's a worthy congrats prize.

Eyebrows?
Have you ever tried Benefits BrowZings kit? I love mine, it's very professional. But if you prefer pencil, be crazy like me and hit up your local art supplies shop and pick up a black Chinagraph pencil. So cheap and so effective as a brow pencil.

fantastic said...

@GlossQueen: good luck to you..you're not far from the finish line! of course as soon as I finished this, I realized I was nearly finished with a few more products..maybe I should save them for next time!

@coffretgorge: thank you :) yes, my little clam!

@tina_mbc: just ONE bronzer?! no! but then again, at least you'll have a satisfied feeling when you realize that it's nearly finished. afterall, you probably don't need a whole lot of bronzer during the summer time anyhow.

how to deal with the vanity..ermm..not sure? i was just looking into different storage options--i don't like anything to be out, but don't want to stack up drawers and boxes all over the place. what do you do?

@su-pah: a chinagraph pencil? i've never even thought of this! i use little pots of things to do the filling in..but this pencil was so soft, that it gave me control and natural color.

yes, guerlain is like a bronzing standard...and they're not afraid to let you know that they believe it either!

Tali said...

I just bought this online in a fit of 'i feel sorry for myself-ness-ness' BAD INFLUENCE YOU!
Thank god you dont post more or id have about 100000 bronzers :/ xxx

fantastic said...

@tali: i got you, i got you!!! yayyy!! another bronzer ;) well, you deserve it after this week xoxo

Tali said...
