Project 100 Pan // Empties 1-5

project 100 pan empties

True story…

Him :  Look!  I just cleaned out the bathroom.
Me :  ARGHHHH!!!!!  Did you throw out the empty bottles of shampoo, conditioner and shower gel???!!
Him :  YES!  They’re empty!!!
Me :  ARGHHHHH!!!  NOOOOO!!!  I need them for my Project 100 Pan!
Him :  A what??
Me :  UGHHHHH!!!!  Just leave my stuff alone!!!!!!
Him :  But it was getting mouldy!!!
Me :  Don’t throw out any of my stuff again!  *gives Hubby the stink eye for ruining my Project 100 Pan and stomps off*
Him :  *shakes his head in disbelief at his looney beauty blogger wife*

Anyway, as you may have all gathered, I did a Project 100 Pan last year and I may have cheated and bought products before I finished my project, but I also did well over my 100 empties.

I didn’t manage to keep all my empty and used bottles/jars/tubes – thanks to my housecleaning clutter-phobic other half – but I saved most of them to document my journey.  So here’s the first instalment showcasing Empties 1-5…

Review : L’Oreal Paris Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution

L'Oreal Paris Skin Perfection Micellar Water Solution in Australia

I’ve heard that L’Oreal Paris Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution is making its way to Australia soon-ish, but meanwhile I got my cousin to buy me not one, but TWO bottles of this baby from Boots (UK drugstore mecca; Aussie equivalent is the beloved Priceline) when she came to Australia last October (yes, my review is nearly half a year late!).  I’m glad I got her to buy me TWO bottles because…(spoiler alert)…I love it a lot!

You may be thinking – Girl, it’s just a make-up remover!  What’s the big dealio?

Well, please allow me to waffle on and share my love…

Review & Swatch : L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder

L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique Eau De Teint Australia, Armani Maestro dupe, L'Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Australia, L'Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Natural Buff 318,

Another day, another foundation!  Hello L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder!  But this one’s extra special because a) it was a gift from the lovely Norlin over at Baubles, Bubbles & Bags when she went on her US trip and b) it’s apparently a dupe for the more expensive Armani Maestro Foundation which was on my wishlist.

However, please note that L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder is not yet released in Australia and it’s known as L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique Eau De Teint in UK…so who knows when and what it will be called when it is released in Australia…?!

Tried & Tested Trio : Hair Oils

Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Oil Treatment, L'Oreal Professionel Mythic Oil & L'Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil

As you all know, I work full-time in a medical-related field where blood, guts and saliva get thrown in the air and being a hygienic freak, I HAVE to scrub my body after work PLUS wash my hair.  Every.  Single.  Day.  That, in hair speak, means that I strip my hair of its natural oils and as a result, I dowse my hair every day in hair oils in an attempt to nourish it.  Here are 3 hair oils I have tried and tested.  Check it out y’all…

Touching Up My Redhead Roots

l'oreal paris excellence fashion, l'oreal paris excellence fashion review, l'oreal paris excellence fashion red, l'oreal paris excellence hair dye

I’ve had no regrets since I became a total redhead in January when I was holidaying in Hong Kong.  If you’re in HK and you’re looking for a hairdresser in the New Territories, I HIGHLY recommend Kay from Hair Q in Tai Po Plaza who is MAGIC!  I’ve had my hair cut by him twice and it looks amazing when I step out of the salon and it still looks amazing 2.5 months later when it’s grown out with lots of lovely layers and natural volume.  Unfortunately, my hair style might still look good, but my roots were raging to be done a few weeks ago.  Not to worry as I had anticipated this by purchasing L’Oreal Paris Excellence Fashion P66 Intense Spicy Red before I hopped on the plane back to Melbourne.  Here’s how I got on…
