Last time I did an update I had emptied one item! My Shiseido Foundation. I really hoped I could empty at least one more item but as the year comes closer to the end I feel like I won’t be able to.
I’ll toss out a lot of the lipstick items because they are definitely getting old! I am also still missing one item in my project pan, it’s the Too Cool for School tinted lip balm I mentioned before. So I’ll only have 16 items to update.
Most Used Items (5-7 days a week)
MAC Powder Blush in Fleur Power. I have been wearing other blushes every once in a while but I enjoy the colour of this blush for every day. Over the summer I did wear more coral/orange blushes but now that we into Fall I will likely stick with this. Even though I wear it every day I feel like I haven’t made much progress since last time.
Was 3/4 full, no change
Physicians Formula Super BB InstaReady Bronzer. I can start to see the edge of the pan which is a good sign for me. I’ve been using this so much over the last few months and because it’s really light I have been very generous with my application.
Was 5/8 full, now 1/2 full
Smashbox Covershot in Golden Hour. Can you see a dent in the golden shade Hotline? I’ve been using this for much of the summer. The next shade I’ve been wearing the most is Turned Up which is the pink shade right next to it. Both of these are easy, one sweep shades that I’ve been wearing over the eyelid with Dope, the cool brown shade, as a transition colour in my crease.
Was 3/4 full, no change
Yves Rocher Youthful Glow Powder in 100 Teint tres Clair. I have only been using this under my eyes to set my concealer, especially if I’m wearing the Becca Concealer I mention below.
Was 3/4 full, now 1/2 full
Medium Use Items (2-4 days a week)
Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector. I will wear this under my concealer to help brighten under my eyes. Since this is a sticky formula it helps my concealer stay in place.
Was 3/4 full, now1/2 full
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in 611 Yogurt. I wasn’t using this product too much until I made a recent purchase from Nudestix. Since I’ve started wearing those cream products on my eyes I am reaching for this to add a little brightness to those eye looks. This does make a really good inner corner highlight so I’m going to try to use this more often.
Was 5/8 full, no change
Fresh Sugar Lip Polish (deluxe size) I continue to use this every week or so and I feel like I’m starting to see a difference in the product amount. If I can use this a little more frequently I might be able to empty this.
Was 2/3 full, now 1/2 full
CoverFX Custom Enhancer Drops in Moonlight (deluxe sample) I have been mixing this in my foundation almost every day since the beginning of September. I wasn’t using this so much in the summer. I don’t imagine there is too much product left, but since I only use about half a dropper it is emptying slowly.
Was 3/4 full, now 1/4 full
Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay in Exposed (deluxe sample) I am using this every once in a while as an all over highlight. I’m not using any other highlight in my collection at the moment. Still, it doesn’t seem to have changed much over the last few months.
Was 7/8 full, no change
Least Used Items (0-1 days a week)
Marc Jacobs Black Liner (deluxe size). I feel like this is getting to a point where it might be unsafe to continue use. I’ve had this for quite a while now. I did use it a few times in the summer but the more I use it, the more I realize I don’t like the formula.
Was 1/2 full, no change
Colourpop Lippie Pencil in Aquarius. I don’t wear lipstick too often, but this colour matches my natural lip colour so well that I will wear it under a lot of my lipsticks when I do wear them. Otherwise, I never use this!
Was 2/3 full, now 2/3 full
Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick in 220 Powerful (deluxe size). Of all the lipsticks I originally put in my project pan, this is the only one I actually use every once in a while. I haven’t made a dent in it since the last update but wow am I really loving this formula!
Was 3/8 full, no change
I haven’t used the items below at all! Now they are lipsticks and I think they are just getting old that I don’t want to chance to wear them and then breaking out around my mouth.
Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Candy (deluxe size)
Was 1/2 full, now retired
Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in Glace
Was full, now retired
Teeez Cosmetics Material Girl Lipstick in Hyped Taupe
Was 7/8 full, now retired
Well that’s my Project Pan nine months in! We will see how much more progress I can make before the end of the year!
Are you doing a Project Pan this year? How many items have you been able to empty? Any items you’ve stopped using?
Lots of love,
