It’s April 10, and that means it is time for update 3 in my partners in cream project pan. Let’s start right off with the progress from last month:
I had finished the lipstick and one of the Becca primers and added in the face mist.
In March, I’d worked really hard to finish up the Bare Minerals primer, using my bare minerals foundation with it. I wore the foundation in my rolling project pan only a few times, working extra hard on the bare minerals primer since it was almost gone. I did finish! That was my only finish this month. Let’s move on to the photo and some decisions that need to be made.
We got the news this week that we are now fully working from home for a bit, rather than one week in the office and one week working from home. I’ll go into that in more detail in a later post not related to makeup or project pan updates. But, I’ve decided to roll out the sleek cream contour palette at this time. I am still wearing makeup sometimes. I love doing it, I enjoy the creativity, and because it’s become so much a part of my morning routine, it makes me feel nice and awake. However, forcing cream contour into a routine when I am only staying at home just isn’t going to work for me. I’d rather save this for a time down the road when I am out and about again.
The bare minerals primer is gone, leaving the Becca primer, I made the tiniest bit of progress on that, and the face mist which is ALMOST gone. That means I need to roll a few things in.
I am starting with the replacement of my sleek cream contour palette. I am rolling in my It Cosmetics matte cc cream. It’s not my favorite formula in this line, I find I do prefer foundations with a little more glow. The added spf in this foundation will be great for when I walk the dogs on my lunch break, or sit outside on the patio in the afternoon (providing the weather warms) or when I go to the dog park right after work.
On the days I don’t want to wear that foundation, I might as well keep working on my powder foundation stash, so I am rolling in another primer that I think will work well with powder foundation. It’s the No Poreblem primer, and as you can see, I have had it in a previous project. This takes the place of the bare minerals primer.
The facial mist is so close to being done that I don’t want to wait a full month to start something new. I’ve decided to roll in another facial mist to take the place of the one I am close to being done with.
So that’s where we are with this 3rd project of mine. I feel good about one finish, and I am glad to not force myself to work through something I really don’t need, saving it for another time. I look forward to this project now, and seeing what happens through a month of working through home. (If it lasts a month. It will certainly last for the upcoming 2 weeks.)
