Spring Cleaning Project (Update #1) | 2017

Already a month has passed since debuting our (Jodi (A Brash Attitude) and I) new Project Pan Spring 2017 Edition. Although I’ve used most of the 16 products everyday, there is no real panning going on as of right now (as expected)! If you’ve never started a project like this before, start one and you’ll be amazed at how fun they are and they take away all the guessing of what to use in the morning (or night).

Todays I will be focusing on these 4 products …

Spring Cleaning Project (Update #1) | 2017

 Cake Beauty Lemon Chiffon Shower Froth and Supreme Body Mousse

I chose them first for one simple reason: as much as I adore the Lemon Chiffon Shower Froth, I totally despise the Supreme Body mousse (to the point that I’m getting rid of it). First thing first …

Cake Beauty Lemon Chiffon Shower Froth 

Spring Cleaning Project (Update #1) | 2017

Pros:

It smells ridiculously good (think of a decadent Lemon Meringue pie),

Totally affordable if you buy them at Winners/Marshalls (the $12.99Cnd price is still on),

When using a sponge/mesh net ball, it makes the nicest foam,

Note: This product is Cruelty-free, Vegan, Natural ingredient-driven, Gluten-free, GMO-free, Paraben-free, Phthalate-free and Made in Canada.

Cons:

None

Ingrid’s Rate: 9/10. I have loved Cake’s Shower Froth for such a long, I think that I own every scent they make. Next trip to Winners/Marshalls, have a look at them.

Cake Beauty Lemon Chiffon Body Mousse

Spring Cleaning Project (Update #1) | 2017

Pros:

Super creamy,

Smells heavenly,

Inexpensive for such a huge bottle (I also paid $12.99Cnd at Winners).

Note: This product is also Cruelty-free, Vegan, Natural ingredient-driven, Gluten-free, GMO-free, Paraben-free, Phthalate-free and Made in Canada.

Cons:

Doesn’t dry fast enough,

15 minutes after the initial application, it starts to smell quite bad… The lemon scent is nowhere to be sniff.

Ingrid’s Rate: 2/10. Except for the price tag, there is nothing I like about this product. I’m so sad because I had great expectations for this body cream, but I hate the smell so there is no need to keep it. Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream, here I come…

Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon parfume

Spring Cleaning Project (Update #1) | 2017

The Notes: Vanilla Bourbon, Oakwood, Tuberose.

Pros:

Dirty Dirty… Dirty Boozy Vanilla. A very seductive fragrance,

Cruelty-Free,

It mixes surprisingly well with Nirvana Rose.

Cons:

It’s not long-lasting (2 hours max on me).

Ingrid’s Rate: 7/10. I love Vanilla and smelling like cake batter is my cup of tea. This perfume, with its smoky twist, has surprisingly won me over. You do need to apply a lot to make your presence noted. If it would have been long-lasting, this fragrance would be a 10/10 for sure!

Becca Backlight Priming Filter

Spring Cleaning Project (Update #1) | 2017

Pros:

Gives a beautiful luminous glow to the skin,

I notice a little bluring effect.

Cons:

It contains fragrance that could irritate sensible skin types,

Dries my skin (my foundation ends up looking super patchy),

Contrary to some reviews, I wouldn’t wear it alone (too shiny and obvious).

Ingrid’s Rate: 5/10. I like it but I would never purchase a full size. I can see why a lot of girls (and boys) love it but it doesn’t seem to work on my particular combination/dry skin type.

Mac Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly

Spring Cleaning Project (Update #1) | 2017

Spring Cleaning Project (Update #1) | 2017

Want to know more: Mac Must-Haves ❥ Paint Pots

Pros:

Inexpensive considering that I bought this pot in 2015 (a little goes a long way),

The product doesn’t dry up,

The best eye primer “PERIOD”,

Super creamy (non drying) and blendable,

Creasing and fading proof.

Cons:

MAC is NOT Cruelty-Free.

Ingrid’s Rate: 10/10. This is such a staple in my daily makeup routine. I adore this formula so much so that I own 7 of these Pro Longwear Paint Pots. I often use them alone just to cover the redness I have on my eyelids. The only product that comes really close to this product is the now discontinued bareMinerals 5 in 1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow SPF 15.

Now that you’ve read my one month update, go see how Jodi (A Brash Attitude) did on this 2017 Project Pan Spring Cleaning Edition.

♥Next Stop: April 3 for the Second Update♥

  1. Those Cake Shower & Bath Froths are my absolute favourite – I go through them like a mad woman and I always by them at HomeSense/Winners too. That’s disappointing about the Body Cream – I’ve never tried those but always just assumed they’d be good.

    Totally agree about the E&J Nirvana Bourbon – smells amazing but doesn’t last long enough. Glad I only bought the rollerball. 😦

    1. I think I must have bought a “bad” body cream or I had it for too long !😏 Try one, and let me know if the scent also change on you (I’m curious) … Girlfriend, you need at least one Paint Pot in your life.😇

  2. I had the Cake Beauty Lemon Chiffon body souffle and I loved it! I rated it 9/10! See, what I mean? We’re opposites. XD
    Wow, look at you, almost hitting pan on Painterly! I agree, it’s worth the initial price since it lasts SO long and doesn’t dry out as fast as others.
    Great job and keep it up! 🙂

    1. I may have an old product or a bad one😐 This is the first Cake Beauty product that smells bad (not at first but after 15 minutes) !!! You know what they : Opposites attract 😉
      It’s all your fault if I’ve gone ga-ga for the Paint Pots😜

  3. You’re making great leeway on your Project Pan items!
    Too bad to hear the Becca primer is drying. I have it on my wishlist but I have super dry skin – primer is supposed to smooth out your skin, not make it dry!

    Like

  4. Interesting that you found the becca primer drying… I have that same sample, but have been holding off on trying it because my skin is super oily, and I just always asumed that because of its luminous finish it would be an oily mess…
    I might have to finally give it a try after all!

  5. Great products to pan. That lemon chiffon body wash sounds sooo good!☺ I use painterly a lot on my lids just so there’s no redness and actually in the inner corner of my eye to cover darkness. It’s a good product☺ I have a mini of the Becca primer. I used it twice and it broke me out and I looked shiny. Don’t think it’s for me either x

    1. I think the Becca primer is so overrate … Lemon Chiffon is AMAZING (the shower gel that is😉). I recently bought Camel Coat and I think I will like it more than Painterly (It’s a mix between Painterly and Soft Ochre) ! Happy Monday my friend xxx
