Project Pan 12 ✮ Fall 2016


There must be something seriously wrong with me!! I’m as excited to start this Project Pan 12 in collaboration with my two friends Jodi from ABrashAttitude & Stashy from StashMatters, as buying all the new Holiday sets already available. Maybe it’s more about doing this with my two Beauty Bloggers extraordinaire than the project itself but that’s just me… I’ve said it a few times before: I suck at finishing my project pan when I do it alone but with my besties, it’s a breeze!

So what is a Project Pan: we’ll it’s mostly to hit pan when it comes to eyeshadows but it’s also finishing some products on a predetermined date (for this PP, it will be December 1st). 3 months to empty 12 products – How Cool right?!? Doing this while being a blogger is double the pleasure since each week, we will talk about one of these items. As we want to finish most of our 12 products, we’ll use them nearly every day for the next three months; after 90 days of experimenting with those products, we should be able to write sincere, honest reviews if I say so myself!

Project Pan 12 Fall 2016

In Summary…

12 products that need to exit my stash in the next 3 months, a review on each one and a final appreciation if this product will still find a place in my treasure chest or maybe just worth beautifying the potato peels in my trash can!!! How is that for a brief overview of the task that lies ahead?

Note: My chosen products are all 3/4 full or more !

What’s coming up for the next 12 weeks…

✤Monday September 12: Lise Watier Teint Lumière Foundation

September Blogging Goals ✮ 2016

September Blogging Goals Curly Spring Blossom

Goals, Targets, Objectives, call them what you want, are totally ruling my life these days. I function really well when I pinpoint them and put them in writing. I even told (more imposed) this concept to BeardMan and he had to agree that making list has some great advantages: 1) it helps remembering important things to do and take care of, 2) it helps prioritize, and 3) it helps to estimate the amount of time necessary for each task. Enough about the virtues of To-Do lists, today’s blog will be all about a few goals that I want to achieve in September, sort of my To-Do list!

Instagram (Social Media)

Instagram Curly spring Blossom

Posting on Social medias doesn’t come naturally to me! It’s actually a pain in the… to even think about it! Of course, I could use apps to make sure that all my blog pictures would show up on Twitter (I’m way better at this platform), Facebook, SnapChat and/or Instagram but, for me, it’s a little bit too much; it creates a marketing overload, an excess in plugging my posts! Again, it’s just me…

I want my Instagram to be totally different than my blog so, in September, I want to be more active, by posting at least 3 pictures per week; consistence is key is in it???? My last update is 16 weeks ago (that’s bad, really BAD)!

Project Pan


I’m super excited that Super Mega Trendy bloggers Stashy (Stashmatters) and Jody (A Brash attitude) will join me on a new, improved Project Pan 12. This time around I mean business when I say that I will PAN these 12 products, I need them to vacate my stash premises before December 1st, just in time for those Xmas sales… Project Pan for me has to be in collaboration with friends, if not, I loose interest very fast and never finish them (the project and the product).

Note: Like the last time around (Project Focus 10), we will each be posting a review of one of our selected product, and knowing my collaborators, you are in for a treat… Super exciting!

My Stash

My Makeup Stash 2016

Oh boy! This month, I want (need) to furthermore declutter my stash and maybe write some posts about my entire collection… So another main goal for September is to take inventory and analyze all my products and I’ll invite you along for the ride …

I’ll focus on these 3 big targets since they already are overwhelming and it’s always better to have less and finish them instead of keeping a huge list just for the sake of it! Thinking of all the pictures needed to capture the essence of my collection, it gives me hives !!!

Do you have some blogging goals this month???

✮Fall 2016 Makeup Trends✮

Fall 2016 Makeup Trends

Am I the only one crying over the fact that Summer is almost a thing of the past? So long perfect tanned skin, farewell pastel colors and welcome deep tone shades.  Every year, we see new trends being hyped in the makeup world or is it just a twist of old ones? Regardless, it’s always fun to laugh at some of those freaky styles, to reflect on the ones we may adopt or even get inspired to develop our own.


Copper Eyes

For fall 2016/winter 2017, rusty oranges and metallic coppery tones are the talk of town. I Love this new trend because it’s very flattering no matter which shade or color you select in those tints.

Personally … Yes, yess and yesssss! You have no idea how trendy I will be this fall. Copper can be wear for a normal daytime look very easily or for a great sultry sexy nighttime look, ideal for a night on the town or a date with your loved one. Even as a pop of color in the middle of the mobile lid, this color is sublime.

Fall 2016 Makeup Trends

Bold Matte Black Liner

The 90s are back my friends with the grunge, very structure and VERY obvious black eyeliner all around the eyes. Black is back as AC/DC would loudly sing!

Personnaly … If you have the eye shape that suits this trend go for it, but with my hooded eyes, it’s a No-No for me … and at my age it’s way to severe! With Alice Cooper running for President, this trend is a sure bet..

Fall 2016 Makeup Trends


Again, reminiscences of the 90s era, the 80s and even the 70s … It’s just in recent years that tightening the lower and upper lashes has taken such a backseat.

Personally … I’m the biggest fan of tightening my upper lash as it makes my lashes seem fuller. As for the lower lash, I dig a beige tone on the waterline and that’s about it. I’ve used this technique so much in my youth that, I think I’ll let it go this winter! I even used to put forest green on my waterline (I tried to launch a new trend but, I think it was a total flop…)

Fall 2016 Makeup Trends

Highlight the Inner Corner of the Eye

Happy to see an old favourite coming back. Highlighting the corner of your eyes gives the illusion of a wider eye. To me it beautifully finishes an eye look and is quite flattering.

Personally … I’ve done this for years, it’s the oldest trick in the book if you want to look like you have bigger eyes.

Fall 2016 Makeup Trends

Deep Vine Color Lips

I dig the minimal makeup with those darker lips. These burgundy/vine tones are more flattering than the traditional, true powerful red that we so often see. Very wearable and very sophisticated!

Personally … I do try dark lips every fall but with no real success! I haven’t been blessed with big juicy lips therefore, to look good, I would have to overdraw my lips with a lip liner and it’s simply not my style … and collagen lip injections are just not in the cards for me. But, as Halloween is in October, maybe I’ll be able to pull off this look for one night…

Fall 2016 Makeup Trends


Lip Balms

As you noticed, this fall, it’s either very dark lips or natural ones by only wearing lip balm. I guess if you wanna rock the black liner, a balm gives you that punk rock, school girl look.

Personally … Just a balm doesn’t cut it when I do a full makeup face! For me, balms are for a night treatment or when I exercise.

Fall 2016 Makeup Trends

Flushed Cheeks

Bronzer/contouring combo seems to be out and has been replaced with a natural look with peach or rose blushes emphasizing the apple of the cheeks; you know just like you came back from shovelling some snow or a clam walk in a park in a chilly afternoon. Some of these new trends make sense: with the dark lips and the bold matte eye liner, nobody would even consider applying a dark blush shade!

Personally … There is no way I won’t be bronzing! With this week post,  I’m now known as the self-proclaimed bronze goddess (we are still debating on the name, just to make sure that we don’t anger the Gods)! No matter the season, I prefer  a light blush; I used to apply it on the apple of my cheeks but now it’s more diffuse toward my temples.

Fall 2016 Makeup Trends


Still going strong is the luminous face; the matte finish trend is a thing of the past! No wonder there are so many new highlights entering the market.

Personally … Don’t tell anyone but I’ve been highlighting my face and nose like a mad woman lately

Fall 2016 Makeup Trends

Personnaly … No thank you! These trends are there for conversation purposes only. Like I would wear MAC’s “Candy Yum-Yum” in November with the freezing Quebec weather, matching my non existing newly bleached eyebrows while having glitters all around my eyes, the same glitters that would stick to my runny nose and my large wool tuque, my scarf tinted from my pink flushed cheeks and my Matte Black liner drooling from the cold wind hitting my face! That painted picture itself is not really a beautiful sight isn’t it? Welcome to Winter in Santa’s backyard!!!

✮Just for fun … Hair Biggest Trend✮

Curly Hair

You read it right! Curly hair!!! Alleluia! Alleluia! I know it will be a fluke trend and no one will go and get themselves a nice perm but when I read it I almost cry from joy!

Personnaly … Well my blog name is Curly Spring Blossom and yes, I do have very curly hair, not the prettier kind that looks beachy but the untameable one (like Merida in Disney’s Brave) that require that I wear a bun 300+ days per year! If this trend sticks this year, at least, this style will make my life so easier, and for once, maybe I’ll be able to get ready in less than 30minutes for my trendy morning makeup!
