Project Second Chance Results & New Round

This has been an interesting project, I must say there is a reason why I don't use these products and I'm finding it really hard to reach for them. Nevertheless I have persevered and here is the round up for the products I've used this past month and where we stand now.

L'Oreal True Match Foundation. Guess what, it didn't break me out! So that mystery is cracked. It's a great color match for me, but not so much for my oily skin. I get really oily from this stuff and even my trusty Stay Matte can't keep me matte.
POP Beauty Nail Polish in Pink Popsicle. Still no good with this polish. The formula is just too thick so it drags like crazy over my nails and it's impossible to get a nice even coat of it.

Eyeko Skinny Mini Liner. I really can't tell if it's dried out or not but it's just so grey and watery that it's impossible to use as an eyeliner. However it is the perfect product for filling in my brows! I know this sounds crazy but it actually matches my brow hairs quite nicely and leaves it fairly smudge proof. I'm glad I have a new use for this.
Becca Highlighter. It's just not highlight-y enough to use as a highlighter for me. I like something that really just glows on my skin and this is more like a faint shimmer on my skin since the base color is so close to my skin tone. Also just doesn't work for me all over still because it makes my skin oily and if I set it with a powder it kind of defeats the whole purpose of using a product that is suppose to induce a glow.

And now for the last batch of products!
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Barely Branded. This stuff clings pretty badly when I try to apply it to my lid as well as creases. I will experiment with different primers and also applying with a shadow brush to see if that will help.
Wet n Wild Silk in Breeze. This stuff is just a metallic silver on me, not cute. I will try mixing with different glosses and lip liners to possibly achieve a wearable color for me.
Davines This Is a Sea Salt Spray. Is sea salt spray suppose to dry out your hair? I will try mixing it with leave in conditioners to see if I can make this usable.
Essie Mint Candy Apple. A lot of people love this color but my bottle produces a lot of clumps and streaks. Again this will be an experiment of different base coats and top coats as well as drying methods to see if I can make this work.
