1st P10SC - Conclusion

I didn't do too bad!!  Congratulations to me!! I know I cheated a little by buying a big lot of skin care (especially face masks) before I started this project.  However, I did quite well in terms of limiting myself to shop crazily at bargains and etc!  I think I only pick up 1 sheet mask, 1 mini-size sunscreen, 1 big-size sunscreen (for face and body, guys!) ......

Here comes the round-up:

Would You Rather - Beauty Edition


1.) Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?

Not too sure about eyeliner because they are essential in my dictionary.  But for sure, I'd definitely choose palettes n shadows rather than mascaras and lips, because mascara and lips can be easily replaced, while i collect eyeshadows and palettes :P

2.) Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?

Chop off all, let it grow, and have healthier hair. ;)

3.) Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?


4.) If you had $1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?

Clothes and skin care.  I think I almost have too much MU.

5.) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?

eyeliner as lipstick, i guess

6.) Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?


7.) Would you rather only use one eyeshadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life?

1 lip

8.) Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?

summer clothes in winter, but layers of them :P 

9.) Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?

either.  if dark, it must be dark chocolate.  if bright, it must be bright shimmery pink.

10.) Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?

i'll keep my eye product and give up my lip product. i think.

11.) Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?

messy bun

12.) Would your rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?

i'll keep nail-painting and let go of lipglosses, still i have lipsticks and balms to play with, no? :P

13.) Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday?


14.) Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?

without nail polish.

P10SC updates

Biotherm White D-Tox Serum
- not like this at all, it comes off like flakes right after it kind of dries on ur skin.  what's the point? I'm not applying a peeling gel, but a serum! :(

L'Occitane Roses 4 Reines velvet hand cream (travel size, 30ml)
- Not the most moisturizing and fast-absorbing hand cream, however, like this scent when it is in this hand cream formula; it is also good in the solid perfume form.  I bought the eau de toilette in roller ball and it stinks.  That smells like cheapo rosy perfume that no one wears nowadays. (sorry if this offends you)  It could be my 'body chemistry' but only the hand cream and solid perfume smell good to/on me.  Well. perhaps I can try the candle next.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Complete UV WaterlIght Lotion SPF50+ PA+++ (Peach/ even skin tone)
- Very smooth and easy to apply.  But it stints my eye to the hell when just a tiny bit of it goes into them! I mean, when they have dried for 1hr+ and I gently rub my lid, my eye waters for a few minutes non-stop!  Will use up the other lavender and white sample before I decide whether I love or hate this ...

So this technically bring me to 5 more to go.  I can forsee 2 of the coming 5s will be my lip balm... probably a Dr. Hauschka and a Body Shop one :P

There's also a Majolica Majorca eyeshadow palette and Natural Collection blush near their end.  Those could go to my Project 10 Pan too! :P

Random Swatches of Lipsticks

outdoor, shade

I have been interested in finding the next perfect light to medium pink lipstick to buy after my P10P and here are some swatches when I was browsing the SASA nearest to my office.

Revlon in colour 'petal' is the closest to what I would like to find.  But don't want to pay that price for a MIC lipstick.  Hmmm...

In and Out 4

What's In?

- My pilgrimage to Spain will start in less than a week!

- Using up products.  I'm on Project 10 Skin Care and Project 10 Pan now :P

- Doing facial masks.  I have almost consecutively make it over 1 week, until I slipped last night. (due to packing). But I am sure I will continue working through my face masks diligently until I go on trip :P

- ASOS.  Spent over $3000 on this evil shopping site in July, and I'm constantly checking the site out.  Oh My.

- Scrunchie for my hair.  I've been wearing my hair in pony tail (or bun) 6 out of 7 days per week.  Weather is defnitely not favouring a hair-down!

What's Out!

- Buying products.  Yes, looking at how much I already possess, buying urge is quite low

- Working.  Not that I dislike working itself, but working 9 to 6 means I have minimal time to play MU and spend time on things my interests genuinely lie.

- Heat.  Not a fan of Mr. Sunshine and the 24/7 hot weather.

- My hair.  The health of my hair is pretty bad due to sunlight and my frequent dyeing.  Perhaps I should start intensive treatment, maybe daily hair mask?

- Boyfriend being extremely busy.  Only texts and emails on weekdays even though we work not far from each other.  Hell.

- Preparing and packing for my Spanish pilgrimage/trip.

First down, 9 more to go

The first MakeUp that I have used up is this black Perfectwear Eyeiner from Lelan Vital. 

It comes with a mini-smudger and sharpener at the back (not photographed here) and is made in Germany.  I find this pencil genuinely smudge-proof and pretty easy to use.  Glides on smoothly and delivers nice black pigmentation.

Will definitely repurchase this sooner or later.  IMO this is very similar to the KOJI springheart one.  Which I have also used before.

Below is a poor quality picture taken with my whiteberry.  I used this eyeliner to line my upper waterline and fill in my lash-gaps.

The mascara and eyeshadow I used today are also my current favourites.  :P

Foundation: Skin79 Gold BB Cream
Under-eye Concealer: Bourjois Brush Concealer
Eyeshadow Primer: Bare Minerals Prime Time
Eyeliner: Lelan Vital Perfectwear in Black
Eyeshadow: Lavshuca Star Decorations in BR-1
Mascara: Integrate Separate
Lens: EOS Adult Brown
