Products I’ve Hit Pan on

Products I've Hit Pan on
I’ve loved makeup since I was a teen, but I’ve only been a makeup enthusiast/collector for the past few years and I thought it would be fun to look through my collection to find the products that I’ve hit pan on.

Just a note: if you are looking for pretty makeup shots… this is not the post for that – these are well-loved and covered in powder and fingerprints haha!

nyx butter gloss in angel food cake

nyx angel food cakeThis NYX Butter Gloss is amazing and quickly became a must-have in my purse. The doe foot applicator is extremely soft, the gloss smells sweet and delicious, and it leaves my lips feeling conditioned – like I have balm on. It doesn’t last very long, an hour at most, but for $7.99 I don’t mind.

NYX calls Angel Food Cake a True Mauve – to me it’s the perfect pinkish-nude. I am interested to try out some of the bolder shades, and will be sure to review them when I do. ♥

Add a little more sweetness to your lips with a touch of any of NYX Cosmetic’s Butter Lip Glosses available in many scrumptious colors! Get that creamy medium coverage on your lips without that sticky sensation. It’s perfect for every sweet tooth! Softens and conditions lips while giving a hint of color and gloss.

dior addict lip glow

dior addict lip glowStarting nice and easy for my first beauty post after my not-so-short blog vacation, with the oh-so-pretty Dior Addict Lip Glow. This is a product I bought specifically for the packaging, and just hoped that it was decent enough to justify the $41 CDN price tag.

What it is: A sheer balm that enhances your natural lip color while moisturizing and protecting lips.

What it does: Awaken and enhance the natural beauty of your lips with this unique balm. Formulated with color reviver technology, this silky lipstick reacts with the chemistry of your lips to create a special shade that will last all day. The addition of SPF 10 will keep you protected, while hydrating mango butter and loofah extract nourish for beautiful, luscious lips.

Ingredients:
OCTINOXATE (ETHYLHEXYLMETHOXYCINNAMATE) 7.50 , C10-30 CHOLESTEROL/LANOSTEROL ESTERS, DIISOSTEARYL MALATE, BIS-DIGLYCERYL POLYACYLADIPATE-2, PHYTOSTERYL/OCTYLDODECYL LAUROYL GLUTAMATE, SYNTHETIC BEESWAX, DIMER DILINOLEYL DIMER DILINOLEATE, OCTYLDODECANOL, OZOKERITE, ETHYLHEXYLPALMITATE, C20-40 ALCOHOLS, POLYETHYLENE, IRVINGIA GABONENSIS KERNEL BUTTER, HYDROGENATED COCO-GLYCERIDES, DECYLOXAZOLIDINONE, TRIBEHENIN, PARFUM (FRAGRANCE), LUFFA CYLINDRICA SEED OIL, BHT, SORBITAN ISOSTEARATE, VANILLIN, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, TOCOPHEROL, BENZYL ALCOHOL, PALMITOYL OLIGOPEPTIDE, TOCOPHEROL, PROPYLGALLATE[ /-: CI 77891 (TITANIUM DIOXIDE), CI 45380 (RED 21, RED 21 LAKE), CI 45410 (RED 27, RED 27 LAKE, RED 28 LAKE), CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499 (IRON OXIDES), MICA, CI 15850 (RED 6, RED 6 LAKE, RED 7, RED 7 LAKE), CI 75470 (CARMINE)].

I picked it up in 001 pink, and it is the perfect ‘my lips but better’ shade. It’s also the most amazingly creamy lip balm I have ever worn. I typically have four or five different balms/glosses in my purse and I almost always reach for this one. It feels wonderful going on and my lips feel comfortable and hydrated for an hour or two. It has SPF 10 which is great, but if that’s all you are looking for there are plenty of options that are far cheaper. This, to me, is a splurge item. It’s absolutely wonderful in every way but the price. I’ll definitely buy it again one day, but it won’t be a regular item in my makeup bag.
