Second Product Completed: PurMinerals 4-in-1 Mineral Makeup Foundation with SPF 15

Great news! I finished my second product for project pan! The product I finished was the PurMinerals 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation with SPF 15. This is something I use if I'm in a hurry and just want a clear complexion. It's great for building coverage, all you have to do if change the brush you use, and you can completely change the coverage you get! I love using this product with a concealer brush for any breakouts. It covers them fantastic. The only problem I have with this product is when I haven't exfoliated in a while. I find when I have a lot of dead skin this product looks very powdery and cakey.

This product is vegan friendly, gluten free, and paraben free. It has vitamin E and organic shea butter, combined with SPF 15 all tied up in one great product. 

I will re-purchased this product again mostly because there really isn't anything too similar to it on the market. I like that it is a pressed mineral powder that I can control the coverage of. There's nothing worse than loose powder flying all over the room. I use the colour Porcelain through-out the year.

What's your favourite foundation?

7 Deadly Sins of Beauty Tag

This beauty tag has been going on for a while now on both YouTube as well as on blogs. I figured in the spirit of my project pan I would do this tag just to see exactly what I've spent money on. I will give multiple answers for some.

1.     Greed. What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?

My most inexpensive beauty products are: Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Make-up Remover, Vanilla Body Wash, Face Wipes, Eye Wipes, and Revlon Lipstick.

My most expensive beauty products are probably perfumes with my Chanel Chance Eau Tendre being the most expensive (I think). In terms of skincare my Clarins Extra-Firming Eye Contour Serum. My most expensive make-up product was my Dior Capture Totale foundation.

2.     Wrath. What beauty products do you have a love/ hate relationship with? What product has been the hardest to get?

The products I have a love/ hate relationship with are the Neostrata Toning Solution Level 2 (great for during breakouts, too drying any other time), Clarins Foaming Cleanser with Cottonseed (takes long to wash off but gets everything off).

The product that was the hardest to get was the Clarins eye shadow single in Desert Blonde because it was discontinued. It is a fabulous pinky nude colour perfect for under my brows.

3.     Gluttony. What is your most delicious beauty product?

My most delicious beauty products are: Urban Decay Marshmellow body powder, Clarins Gloss Prodige.

4.     Sloth. What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?

I often neglect to use my face mask/ oil twice a week, and to using a setting spray for my make-up. I also need to make time to apply my body products out of the shower.

5.     Pride. What beauty product gives you the most self-confidence?

The beauty product that gives me the most self-confidence I’d have to say is bright lipstick. I always feel extra sassy with a colour like Pink Vibrations from Elizabeth Arden on. In terms of what would I not leave the house without my answer would be concealer.

6.     Lust. What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex? Since this is not beauty related I will come up with something different…What beauty product do you believe is the most attractive (i.e. colour, packaging, etc.)?

Lancome Limited Edition Blush, Anna Sui Nail Polish, Shu Uemura eye shadow quad, Clarins Enchanted Eye Shadow Quad, Mac Wonderwoman quad, Physician's Formula Happy Booster.

7.     Envy. What items would you most like to receive as a gift?

Most people choose perfume here but I’d prefer to receive a body product or some limited edition make-up.

Now I tag you! What are your 7 Deadly Sins of Beauty?
