In my 3rd update post, I had made some pretty good progress in the 3 months I’d been working on my rolling 10 pan project. This past month hasn’t been quite so dramatic and I blame the NYX advent calendar. I mean, I really was trying to use the makeup associated with that rather than the makeup associated with my project, and as such, I just didn’t spend as much time using up items from this project.
Here’s the photos from last month:
Here’s the list from last month:
- Hourglass vanish stick
- Maybelline age rewind
- Tarte Paaarty
- Gucci Eau de parfum II (Get halfway through this product)
- Clinique setting powder
- One pan of clinique eyeshadow.
- Miscellaneous items
- Laura Mercier stick eyeshadow
- Body Care
- Mary Kay Satin Hands
And my finale photo:
I made a bit of progress on the satin hands kit. The hand softener is actually lower than that lowest line, it’s so far gone that I can’t mark it. The exfoliating product is getting used up quite a bit more slowly than the other 2 products in that kit.
I hit my goal on the tarte blush. I hit pan and promptly quit using the blush. It’s a great nude blush and I think it’s one I’ll finish panning at some point in the future, but that time is not now.
The clinique setting powder I am fairly impressed with my progress. To be honest I experimented with a different setting powder quite a lot during December and I didn’t really expect to see too much progress. There it is anyhow!
The hourglass Vanish Stick foundation, I managed to make about the same progress as last month. I just need to keep after it.
The maybelline age rewind concealer I am still working through. I really thought I’d be done by now! But clearly it contains more than I expected.
I fully finished the Laura Mercier caviar stick eyeshadow. I used this both on its own and as a base for eyeshadow. I won’t buy another, there’s a sticky feeling to wearing this product that I am not impressed with. But I am glad to have gotten use out of it.
Beside that are two tiny pans. One is an empty highlighter pan. This was my frankenhighlighter. I started with a total of 3 pans and now I am down to two. I still like it quite a lot, so it’s not really a challenge to use it. Then I have more pan on the powder I am using as a powder to set my eyeshadow base. I think I am going to go for corner pan on that next.
And finally, there’s the gucci perfume. I wanted to get halfway done, and I am not quite halfway. But progress was made. I might give this to Miss Butterfly now. It still smells nice but it doesn’t smell like I want it to smell. I have tons of samples I’d like to use up next and then I’d like to get myself something I am really eager to wear. I have something in mind and if those samples don’t change anything, I’ll probably wait for a fragrance sale and go for it.
The reason I am making this post a finale is that the Beauty News women on youtube are running a year-long full face project pan I’d like to participate in. I’ll post the intro soon and tell you a bit more about it. It’s called teamprojectpan. So in addition to pan that palette which will continue to be my tarte be a mermaid palette I’ll be doing the teamprojectpan as well.
That’s it from here! I really enjoyed doing a rolling 10 pan and can absolutely imagine doing so again in the future. But, for now, the new project will take up all my time.
So, the items I officially finished or hit my goal on in the last 4 months, all of these items completely gone:
- Wet n Wild contour palette
- Becca Undereye Primer
- DevaCurl shampoo
- Laura Mercier Caviar stick
- Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation
- Maybelline matte lipstick
- Trader Joe’s cleanser
I also made the decision to declutter the Jonteblu charcoal color eyeliner that wasn’t working for me at all. It was dry and not very pigmented at all, and I decided it didn’t need to be in my stash. So, in the past 4 months 8 items left my collection, an average of 2 per month. (8 items left my collection through the project pan specifically, my empties show the bigger picture of what leaves my collection regularly.)
Stay tuned for new goals in the upcoming year as well, there’s a lot to be excited about in 2019!
