I have decided to forge my own way, sort of, with a project pan this year.
I’ve seen multiple people do the project pan roulette colabs where they draw prompts and choose an item to pan based on those prompts. I have decided to repurpose those prompts and work my way through as many of the 50 prompts as I can in one year.
I plan to keep it to 6 items at a time, when I finish a goal on one, I’ll just grab the next prompt on the list and figure out what item to roll in.
1. A product with cute packaging
2. An expensive product
3. A product in loose form
4. A drugstore product
5. A product I bought because of youtube
6. An old favorite
Here is the photo of the 6 items I have chosen.
For my product with cute packaging, I have chosen my Pretty Vulgar setting powder. I’ll have to weigh this to track progress since it is not transparent. It is, however, cute. The weigh in on this one is 80 grams.
For my expensive product, I have chosen the hourglass ambient lighting powder in dim light. I generally use this to buff in my cheek products, it makes them look more smooth, natural, and blended. I would like to hit pan in this product before rolling it out and choosing a new prompt.
For my product in loose form I have decided on my bare minerals powder foundation. This is almost a gimme situation as I am really close to being done with this powder. However, I tend to wear it only on the weekends, so it does take me some time to work through it. I’ve had it more than a year and I think it oxidizes on me a bit these days. This was in a former project, but I ended up stopping since I really like to have a powder foundation in my collection. Then I remembered that I also have a bare minerals pro foundation that I like using and that would serve this purpose in my life.
For a drugstore product, I am going to try to finish my NYX eyebrow powder pencil. I like this more than I liked last year’s eyebrow product which took me almost all year to finish. I like the product better as well. Plus, I don’t have a ton of brow products so it’s not really hard to concentrate on one item. To view the progress on this I am just going to go by the markings on the pencil itself. I figure I can compare to where I am from month to month looking at how close to the wording on the pencil I am.
For a product I bought because of youtube, I have chosen one of my CYO lifeproof foundations. I have two because I knew it was going to be discontinued. I thought “What if I really like it!” I do like it, but probably not enough to have two in my collection.
And finally, an old favorite. Do I have makeup that is an old favorite? Not really, I’ve only been messing around with makeup for about two years. But, I’ve had this hula bronzer sample in my collection almost the entire time and haven’t used it. I would like to use this up, though that won’t be so easy seeing as this tends to be pigmented and take a long time to use. I have a full size one as well! So this one out of my collection would be a relief.
Just like yesterday’s skincare project, it’s a relief to only be worried about photos for a few items. I am looking forward to changing up my projects this year and getting use out of these items!
