Project Pan: 18 for 2018 Update #1

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

Thoughts

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,

Project Pan, 18 for 2018!

HAPPY 2018!!

I wish everyone a fantastic new year! I’m so excited for all that 2018 has to bring.

This is the first time I’m attempting a project pan challenge on the blog! I’ve been watching/reading so many project pan roundups at the end of 2017 that I was really interested in trying this for myself.

I’ve picked 18 items that I want to use up before the end of 2018. Some items I know will be difficult (blushes and highlighters) while others should be pretty easy.

Project Pan_2017_LBL1

A lot of the items get neglected in my collection while others are close to being empty and I just wanted to give myself an extra push to use them up before they go bad.

Here’s what I’d like to use up!

Face Items

Project Pan_2017_LBL3

Shiseido Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation. I love this foundation so it should be easy to use this up. See my review of it here.
This is 1/2 full.

CoverFX Custom Enhancer Drops in Moonlight (deluxe sample). I don’t use this too often because it’s so intense but I’m hoping to use up the sample.
This is full.

Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay in Exposed (deluxe sample). This is a pretty nude highlight and I’ve used it a few times already but I wonder if I’d be able to put a dent in it.
This is full.

Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector. I don’t use this as much as I would like to and because it’s in a pot form I want to use it before it dries out.
This is 3/4 full.

Project Pan_2017_LBL4

Physician’s Formula Super BB #InstaReady Filter Bronzer. I got this at Gen Beauty 2 years ago. I like the way this looks on but we will see how much I can get through it.
This is full. 

MAC Powder Blush in Fleur Power. I love the grapefruit pink colour of this blush. This is a blush I’ve had for a few years now and I wanted to try using it up.
This is full.

Bite Beauty Multi-Stick in Almond (deluxe size). I enjoy using this for my cheeks and lips. I’m going to see how long this little stick will last.
This is full.

Yves Rocher Youthful Glow Powder in 100 Teint tres Clair. I hardly used powders because my face is dry. I do like to use them a bit to set under my eyes. This has been kicking around my collection for way too long so this year I’m going to use as much as I can and then toss it out.
This is full.

Eye Items

Project Pan_2017_LBL5

Smashbox Cover Shot Eyeshadow in Golden Hour. Of the three cover shot palettes I own, I use this one the least. I wanted to give it a real shot this year and see if I can find ways to use it. See my review of the palette here.
This is full.

Marc Jacobs Black Liner (deluxe size). I really want to use up this liner. I like it but it’s not my favourite black liner.
This is 1/2 full. 

Project Pan_2017_LBL6

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in 611 Yogurt. I like this pencil for every day so we will see how long it will last. See my review of them here.
This is 3/4 full.

Lip Items

Project Pan_2017_LBL7

I think lip items are the toughest for me to get through because I rarely wear them. I’m hopeing through this challenge I’ll start wearing them more often and finally use them up.

Teeez Cosmetics Material Girl Lipstick in Hyped Taupe. This is one of my favourite coloured lipsticks but I don’t wear it too often. I don’t want this to get old before I’ve had a chance to use it.
This is full.

Colourpop Lippie Pencil in Aquarius. This lip pencil is starting to fall apart on me. The lip liner itself falls out of the pencil all the time so I just wanted to use it up.
This is 3/4 full.

Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Candy (deluxe size). I love this candy red colour and wear this quite a bit.
This is 1/2 full.

Too Cool for School Dinoplatz Lip Balm in Spilled Wine. I got this for my birthday two years ago and I enjoy how comfy this is on the lips and the deep red tint it leaves my lips. This should be really easy for me to use up.
This is 3/4 full.

Project Pan_2017_LBL8

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick in 220 Powerful (deluxe size). I love Estee Lauder lipsticks. This pink will be my spring lipstick I just know it.
This is 1/2 full.

Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in Glace. I received this in a voxbox from Influenster which you can read on here. I love the way this looks but I haven’t been wearing it much at all so I wanted to challenge myself to for 2018.
This is full.

Fresh Sugar Lip Polish (deluxe size). Since I’ll be wearing a lot of lip products this year (hopefully) I’ll want to treat my lips. I use this all the time anyways but I have a few lip scrubs that I should use up. I’m thinking this will be one of the earlier items to finish up in 2018. It’s an amazing scrub.
This is 3/4 full.

I’ll try doing an update every season to track my progress. I’m so excited to get this going!

Are you planning a project pan this year?

Lots of Love,
Dal
