The first three months of the year are done and I’m ready to share an update on my Project Pan! I’ve been trying to use all the items as often as I can and I’ve found that it makes getting ready in the morning before work a lot easier. I keep all the items for the project pan in one makeup bag and that bag has become my go-to for putting together quick looks when I really don’t want to fuss with digging through my makeup collection.

Project Pan_Update 1_LBL (23)

I will break down the items that have had the heaviest usage to the lowest. Not everything is brand new so if you want to know what I am working with take a read of my original post here.

Most Used Items (5-7 days a week)

These items were ones that I either enjoyed before the project pan or they are items I need to complete a makeup look so they get the most usage.

Project Pan_Update 1_LBL (1)

Physicians Formula Super BB Cream. I have not hit pan but the product has gone down and the imprint that was originally stamped on has faded.
Was full, now 3/4 full

Project Pan_Update 1_LBL (7)

Smashbox Covershot in Golden Hour. I’ve been taking a lot of the colours and doing one or two colour sweeps over the eye for my everyday look. Pans that get the heaviest use are the three lightest shimmer shades in the palette.
Was full, now 3/4 full

Project Pan_Update 1_LBL (4)

Yves Rocher Youthful Glow Powder in 100 Teint tres Clair. I used this powder every single time I used the Becca under eye brightening corrector to help prevent creasing and because that product is super sticky. Although I use it a lot I’ve only been able to get as far has to remove the company logo imprinted on the product.
Was full, now full but the print is gone!

Project Pan_Update 1_LBL (8)

Shiseido Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation. I can feel this is getting empty! I hope that by the summer update, this will be done!
Was 1/2 full, now 1/4 full

Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector. I use this every day but because I don’t need a lot it hasn’t really changed much. I’m finding that I don’t like this sticky formula so I know that after I’m completed the Project Pan I’m just going to toss this and never repurchase.
Was 3/4 full, now 2/3 full

Project Pan_Update 1_LBL (5)

Too Cool for School Dinoplatz Lip Balm in Spilled Wine. Another product I try to use often. I love this colour and formula so I tend to keep it in my purse for touch ups throughout the day.
Was 3/4 full, now 2/3 full

Project Pan_Update 1_LBL (9)

MAC Powder Blush in Fleur Power. I can kind of see this look like it’s getting some good use. The more I use this the more I fall in love with the colour and appreciate the formula. It looks so good on!
Was full, now 7/8 full

Medium Use Items (2-4 days a week)

Project Pan_Update 1_LBL (10)

These items were incorporated into my makeup routine as often as I could. Sometimes I would use them in place of the other items above.

Project Pan_Update 1_LBL (11)

Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay in Exposed (deluxe sample) As much as I tried to use it I don’t see a difference in the pan. I don’t wear highlighter every day so this didn’t get used too much.
Was full, now full

Project Pan_Update 1_LBL (13)

Fresh Sugar Lip Polish (deluxe size) I used this whenever I was about to wear lipstick which isn’t often so this was barely used.
Was 3/4 full, now 2/3 full

Project Pan_Update 1_LBL (12)

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in 611 Yogurt.  I have started sharpening this to use up more product. Whenever I wasn’t wearing the Smashbox Covershot palette I would try to use this but I find that it creases really bad on me so I know I’m not repurchasing this after the Project Pan is over.
Was 3/4 full, now 3/4 full

Project Pan_Update 1_LBL (14)

Marc Jacobs Black Liner (deluxe size). I’m using this whenever I don’t do liquid eyeliner. I really don’t love this liner.
Was 1/2 full, now 1/3 full

Project Pan_Update 1_LBL (15)

Bite Beauty Multi-Stick in Almond (deluxe size) I use this for my lips and cheeks. It’s a really nice item.
Was full, now 3/4 full

Project Pan_Update 1_LBL (17)

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick in 220 Powerful (deluxe size). Probably the only lipstick in my Project pan that I wear most often. The colour really compliments the makeup looks I have been coming up with.
Was 1/2 full, now 1/2 full

Project Pan_Update 1_LBL (16)

Least Used Items (0-1 days a week)

These items have been the hardest for me to incorporate into my routine on a weekly basis. I might use these a few times a month.

Project Pan_Update 1_LBL (19)

CoverFX Custom Enhancer Drops in Moonlight (deluxe sample) I used this maybe 4 times. It’s super intense. I’m going to try to start adding it to my foundation for a dewy look.
Was full, now 7/8 full

Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in Glace. I used this maybe twice. It’s a bit too cool for me but I’m trying to make it work with certain makeup looks or with a gloss on top because it’s very matte.
Was full, now full

Project Pan_Update 1_LBL (21)

Colourpop Lippie Pencil in Aquarius. I do wear this under certain lipsticks and I like the formula, I just don’t wear enough lipstick.
Was 3/4 full, now 2/3 full

Teeez Cosmetics Material Girl Lipstick in Hyped Taupe. I love, love this colour. It’s my second most used lipstick but again I don’t wear them often enough.
Was full, now 7/8 full

Project Pan_Update 1_LBL (18)

Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Candy (deluxe size)  I never wore this and I think it’s old.
Was 1/2 full, now 1/2 full


Clearly, I’m not a lipstick person. Most of my lippies are in the Least Used category. Part of why I wanted to do this Project Pan was to use them more so that’s my challenge for the next three months. Everything else I’m happy with my progress.

Are you doing a Project Pan? What is your progress been so far?

Lots of Love,
