It’s headed toward the first of the month, so it’s time for the first of my two beginning of the month project pan updates. Let’s start with the makeup one! This is the one in which I use prompts to choose the products I try to pan or meet goals on. Prompts and last month’s photo below.
1. A product with cute packaging
2. An expensive product
3. A product in loose form
4. A drugstore product
A product I bought because of youtube
6. An old favorite
7. A product you haven’t used in a while.
8. A product of your choosing
9. A product from a previous project.
I was close enough to done with the pretty vulgar powder to call it done, and I added the AOA studios powder as my product from a previous project.
This month’s photo:
An expensive product is my attempt to hit pan on my hourglass dim light powder, still hasn’t happened.
A drugstore product is my NYX eyebrow pencil which I am making progress on, but it’s slow going. I may have explained in the last post that I am using this simultaneously with another brow pencil that I like less. I generally use the one I like less when I am spending the day at home and saving this one for when I am going to work. But, progress is being made!
An old favorite is my benefit hula bronzer, and I FINALLY hit pan! My goal is to use this up, and I am positive it’ll take all year. I am not going to concentrate on increasing the pan this upcoming month, instead, I plan to start concentrating my brush on the other side so it wears a bit more evenly. Hitting pan really did help my motivation though, I’ve been waiting on that pan for at least two months.
A product I haven’t used in a while is my L’Oreal silkissimee liner in blue. My goal on this one was to use it past the “L’Oreal” text, and it currently says “L’OrI” so that’s some good progress too! I’ve been super happy with this color as it pairs beautifully with the pinks and reds that are in my current eyeshadow project.
A product of my choosing was the it cosmetics cc cream. This is such an odd one to me, as I’ve used the illuminating and matte versions and both match me well in color light, but this one looks too yellow. I’ve kind of been saving it for at home days. I finished up the tiny sample, and only have the travel sized version left. I have used the travel size once.
My product from a previous project was the AOA studios powder and I finished that up pretty easily as well! So, I get to roll in another prompt and product.
10. A Unique product-for this I am choosing my last pan of “frankenhighlight.” I made this out of a cruddy eyeshadow palette and some really white sparkly loose highlighter. I had a total of 3 pans and I’ve used up the other two. I’d like to move this one out of my collection as well. This is best used as an inner corner highlight but can also be used on my cheeks. I already have pan on it, and it’s pretty loosely pressed overall. I think I can get this used up in a month or two.
I had been really struggling to see any movement at all on this project 2 months ago. In two months, enough movement to keep me inspired! If I am lucky I’ll be able to choose one more prompt next month, and that’s absolutely what I’ll be working toward.
