Seeing as we are right in the middle of the "party season" I thought it was an excellent time to write about this glittery little number. These were released quite a few years back, but I didn't pick one up until the sometime last year. Since buying 'Space Cowboy', it has become quite the handbag staple for me - now let me tell you why.
November has been a really good month in terms of using stuff up! I've got a few products I've been using for ages that I all like and enjoy, but since I have ended up throwing away a whole lot of expired products in the past, I am excited to be getting into a pattern of basically not risking that. Beyond that I've finished a lot of makeup products this month which is really, really exciting as that really is what takes the absolute longest.
So, here we are at the second-to-last, or perhaps last, favourites post of the year! Usually I skip the December favourites for my yearly favourites post. All the products featured this month are really, really good, and ones I've been using for quite a while. It's all really good stuff, and I'm excited to share them with you. I've talked about some before, but since I've been using them for a while, I felt they deserved a follow-up.
This post is a bit late, as I wanted to post it before the new month. Unfortunately I've been basically living at the office for the past week, so I found no time to write it before now. As I've finished quite a few products, I wanted to get this up before my empties post as otherwise that would be a bit spoilerish. I took these pictures last weekend, and in the week since I actually finished another product, which means I've finished 4 of the products still in this project.
I can't believe it's almost christmas! We are fast approaching my favourite time of the year - and I've already started planning and buying presents! I haven't decorated - yet, but by the time I'm writing my November empties post, I definitely will have. For my October empties I've finished quite a few products I've been using for a long time. A lot of them came as a surprise, as I wasn't expecting to finish them already, and some was a long time coming. Either way, a really great empties post this time, and I'm especially excited as I finally get to rotate in some new skincare products.
October has been a bit of an in-between month for me, in terms of beauty products. I've finished up a lot of products that I've been using for a while (which you'll see in my empties). I've talked about almost all of them before, and because they've lasted until the very end of the month, I haven't really put anything new to the test. With all the products I have though, I figured this would be a good opportunity to talk about some long-standing favourites, though there's at least one product I haven't talked about before.
So, the first update to this project comes a bit sooner than I was expecting to make one! I did say I would update you approximatively every two weeks, and I guess I am sticking to that, but I thought for sure my next update would be at least a few days into November. Either way, I'm updating early for a good reason; I've already used up two items! Yay!
I love RMS beauty. Let me just say that right off the bat. I love the products I have, both current and that I’ve used up, and I really love the brands philosophy. RMS is basically an all-natural brand, and while I’m not entirely on the natural makeup train (I just can’t help it, all the non-natural stuff is so amazing), I kind of wish I was. That’s why I’m always excited when natural brands release new natural options, and am always keen to try it out. Which is why I was excited to try RMS’ “un” cover-up, which is a concealer and foundation in one.
The Verso brand has received a great deal of hype the last few years, famous for their Retinol 8 ingredient, featured in all of their products. While trying their face products have been on my to-try list for a while, and still are, it’s their Eye Serum that first got me to cave and try the brand. Retinol aren’t typically featured in eye products, and certainly not serums, so it’s quite a unique product.
After a lot of back and forth I've decided to do another project pan. I haven't done one in a while as I got a little burnt out doing them, and also I didn't feel I really had many products I felt like panning. To be honest, the reason why I'm mostly doing this now is I realised there's quite a few things I'd love to focus on using up, and while doing that, why not do some posts and share it on the blog?
