Happy new year! New year, new project pan!
Are you all ready for a full year project pan? I think I am up for it this year. Especially this one in particular. Teamprojectpan has been started by the women of Beauty News on youtube. They are really my favorite youtubers to watch, not just beauty news but also their personal channels. I found them originally because I was interested in project panning and stayed for the makeup news.
So, an overview of the project-this is a full face project pan, and it’s a rolling project pan. When I finish with an item I get to roll another in. And it just keeps going all year. Now, quarterly we can switch things up, and I think this is a great idea. That means that whatever makeup I tend to use seasonally can be rolled in during the quarterly change.
For my personal goal, I want to just kind of see how much of my collection I can work my way through this year. I have built a nice collection now and it’s time to concentrate on using it. For pressed powder products specifically, I will just be looking to hit pan on them and then roll them out and roll something in. If that even happens before a quarterly switch up. I am not convinced it will.
So, I’ve pulled out and documented the items I’ll be concentrating on. Let’s start with perfume. Quite frankly, I want to work my way through ALL my tiny little perfume samples.
This is all of them lined up on my window. If I do not like one after using it, I am allowed to toss it. Otherwise, I need to use it up. And, the fun little thing I get to do once ALL of these are gone? That’ll be purchasing a regular size perfume of my choosing. A nice little goal. I am actually really loving Ariana Grande’s Moonlight. I spray it each and every time I am out shopping and I never tire of it. I get quite excited over that perfume and I suspect that’ll be my first perfume purchase. But, I can also switch that up if something in that above lineup really wins me over.
On to the other items.
I have this sleek cosmetics cream contour palette. I bought it when I had no clue what I was doing, and as you can see, I haven’t used it much. So, I think I am going to work my way through that. I also have the hourglass holiday palette because I am a sucker for hourglass. I’ll be using this as my blush/bronzer/highlight. So this palette is to cover all three categories.
I’ve got both of my Mary Kay satin hands products rolling in from my last project. I am adding, for hair care, the Deva Curl styling cream. This works great if I want my hair to lay sleek and flat. It’s an airless pump so my progress will be headed upward. In the winter, this is great at keeping flyaways and static at bay.
For my primer, I am starting with my cover FX blurring primer. As you can see, I’ve already used a fair bit of it and I would like to continue with it at this point.
Below that is my Clinique setting powder. This is a rollover from a previous project as well, as you can see. Progress is being made but I am ready to finish it right up.
And up in the corner are two almost finished concealers. I figured I might as well pull them both in since they are both so close to being done. One is Maybelline age rewind and the other is bare minerals.
For eyeshadow, I’ve pulled in a stila glitter shadow. This one is starting to dry up though it’s less than a year old. I had to remove the stopper to get the product out recently. Now is a great time to finish it up. I also left in the Clinique eyeshadow I am using to set my primer base because it’s pretty close to being done and I want it out of my collection. Unlike most powder products, this is one I want to actually finish.
There are three foundations at play here, and that might seem excessive, but it really is not. The wet n wild photofocus and the hourglass illusion are so ridiculously close to being gone it is pointless to bring one in and not the other. The hourglass vanish stick is only being used as additional coverage under a foundation that is a shade match, so I am keeping it in so I keep working at it even though progress is slow.
I have added my mac paint pot as my eyeshadow primer. And the other few products are an IT cosmetics universal eyebrow shade, a bite beauty agave lip mask, and a bite beauty lipstick. I somehow failed to pull in the other two lip items I am planning to use, but it’s hard to see progress on them anyhow. They are new. One is a Smashbox liquid lip and the other is the nyx intense butter gloss I received in the advent calendar.
And finally, I am adding two liners to the project. I tried to pan the style sepia over the summer. I didn’t finish. But, I’ve still been working at it, and recently a large chunk of it crumbled. So, that really brought me further along. It’s a pretty small liner now and I’d like to finish it up. I am also adding the L’Oreal infallable liner in nude for my water line. I found a good alternative to this though it’s higher end, and instead of setting this aside, letting it dry out, and then not getting use out of it I have added it here so I can move it out of my collection.
And that’s it! It’s a pretty big list, but I really enjoy the idea of rolling through a full face of items. That feels doable.
And, if you’ve read through this far, I do wish you all the best in the new year. And hope that you are able to achieve all your goals as well!
