Rolling 10 Pan Update 2

Rolling project 10 pan update coming your way. It’s been another month and I’ve been able to work very hard and finishing a number of items. Not only that, but I’ve been working consistently on so many of these now that this month looks great for using things up, and next month looks great as well! Here’s the list of 10 from last month:

  1.  Foundations
    1. Urban Decay All Nighter
  2. Concealers
    1. Maybelline age rewind
  3. Bronzer/Contour
    1. Wet n Wild contour palette (Doubles as powder, so I won’t choose a powder this round)
  4. Lipstick
    1. Maybelline nude matte lipstick
  5. Perfume
    1. Gucci Eau de parfum II (Get halfway through this product)
  6.  Haircare
    1. Deva Curl Shampoo
  7. Cleanser
    1. Trader Joe’s
  8. Miscellaneous items
    1. Becca Undereye Primer
  9. Body Care
    1. Mary Kay Satin Hands

Urban Decay All Nighter-I began mixing this with It cosmetics cc cream matte formula. This helped the color work better for me and helped the longevity of the formula. I took a hiatus from project pan during my conference to wear other foundations, but once the conference was over I decided to quit mixing and go back to hardcore panning. I took photos over the weekend for this post, and at the time it was still going strong even though I could no longer see where the airless pump was on the container. I am proud to report that as of this morning it’s no longer pumping a steady stream of product so I am calling it done.

Maybelline age rewind concealer-I love this concealer though it sometimes feels like the coverage is awfully light when paired with UD all nighter foundation. It does make my undereye area look good though, so it’s no trouble to keep using it. Miss Butterfly also uses this one, and it’s certainly one we’ll be repurchasing once this one is finished. However, I’ve got a Bare Minerals concealer that will make an appearance in this project pan before I move on to another one of these age rewind ones.

Wet n wild contour palette-The powder is already gone, can you believe it? I worked hard at eliminating that powder from the pan this month. I believe I’ll be done with the contour shade next month.

Maybelline Nude matte lipstick-I wanted to pan a bullet lipstick, and now I have. I am not replacing this category at this time. I want to just generally use a bunch of different lipsticks before I get into panning another lipstick item. Maybe I’ll even make a series on it for the blog.

Perfume-I am so annoyed about this perfume, it doesn’t have the staying power I remember and I wonder if that’s just because it’s older. I should be taking it to work with me and reapplying to get maximum use since it doesn’t stick with me, but then I’d give up the opportunity to have it used by Miss Butterfly. The saddest part, I have another one as a back up in my collection. Do Not Buy Back Ups! This is my warning. Maybe I’ll bring the back up to work.

Deva Curl shampoo-I’ve got another month of use out of this product I suspect, so I’ll just try to keep after it and really get it finished this month. Then I may use that category for something new entirely.

Trader Joe’s cleanser-DONE! I am so glad I panned this item. In the end, it worked fine. I’d put it away because it felt like it was drying my face, but when I felt that way I wasn’t using moisturizer or any other face products, so my skin was quite dehydrated. It works just fine now and I am so pleased I didn’t toss it. I plan to reuse the bottle with the pump for a cleanser I own in a problematic bottle. But, it’s not a cleanser I plan to pan right away, so I am giving up this category for the next month.

Becca undereye primer-I really love this product and I may repurchase at some point. Steady progress is being made. I’d say that the packaging is a little annoying at this point, it is hard to get the product out of the corners. But, there’s so much product still in the corners! I’ve got another undereye item to try after this is done so I won’t repurchase right away, but despite its pricey nature I really love this one.

Mary Kay Satin Hands-I have been working on this one and actually used up the associated but not pictured hand cream. No matter, we can always use a different hand cream. I suspect we’ll use up the hand softener next, but I’ve got a backup solution for that as well. These count as two, which is why my list only has 9 items in a 10 pan project.

New items-I am adding in my lovely frankenhighliter that I made from the Clinique palette and another sample item as well as the one base shadow I’ve been working on from that now tossed palette. I am also adding the Hourglass vanish stick foundation-I have this in a shade that does not work for me. I should have returned it, but I didn’t until after it was so late I’d be embarrassed to do so. My plan with this is to use it on the redness on my face and then cover it with a better foundation match. This is what I did during the conference and it worked very well. It’ll probably take me ages to finish it this way, but I do want to get use out of it. For this, I used the cap to indicate how much of the stick I have when entirely rolled up. I took this measurement from the absolute highest point on the base container. The white line on the cap is the measurement.

New list:

  1.  Foundations
    1. Hourglass vanish stick
  2. Concealers
    1. Maybelline age rewind
  3. Bronzer/Contour
    1. Wet n Wild contour palette
  4. Highlighter
    1. Frankenhighlighter
  5. Perfume
    1. Gucci Eau de parfum II (Get halfway through this product)
  6.  Haircare
    1. Deva Curl Shampoo
  7. Eyeshadow
    1. One pan of clinique eyeshadow.
  8. Miscellaneous items
    1. Becca Undereye Primer
  9. Body Care
    1. Mary Kay Satin Hands

So, this month I believe that I’ll finish the concealer, the contour, the shampoo, and perhaps one of the satin hands items. I’ll be able to easily roll in another concealer, contour, and hair product. I am less sure what to sub in for the body care item. Hopefully, in the upcoming month, that item will reveal itself to me.
