Project 50 Pan: Taking Stock (mascara)

Accumulating too much mascara has never been a huge problem for me as I tend to stick to my ‘holy grail’ mascara (Lancome’s Hypnose) most of the time. Having said that, I do splash out and try a new product every now and then if it sounds interesting enough (I’m looking at you, Benefit They’re Real) and sometimes get samples sent to me for review. As it stands, my current mascara collection is probably the largest it’s ever been.

Mirenesse Sexy Secret Weapon Mascara, Revlon Custom Eyes Mascara, Lancome Hypnose, Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes & Benefit They’re Real.

Lancome Hypnose (replacement), NYX Doll Eye Mascara, Maybelline Volum’ Express One By One & Maybelline Great Lashes Lots Of Lashes.

Mini Haul

Due to Project 50 Pan, this post should have been called ‘things I bought but probably shouldn’t have’ but oh well, we all slip sometimes. I purchased the Aquolina Pink Sugar fragrance on a whim after receiving a sample of it with a Sephora order, and I don’t really know what I was thinking. I also purchased Taylor Swift’s fragrance ‘Wonderstruck’ in rollerball form and although it’s incredibly sweet, I love it. I finally purchased MAC’s Trax eyeshadow, after wanting it for over a year now and last but not least I bought a replacement Lancome Hypnose Mascara for when the tube I’m currently using runs out. Not too bad as far as hauls go, but not great. There are three things here that I could have easily lived without, but three unnecessary things purchased in three months isn’t too bad.
