The second month of pan those eyeshadows roulette style comes with some new rules. Previously I mentioned that I could roll out a shadow that I’ve hit pan on or used 35 times in 3 months. I am changing the rules a bit. I can roll out a project I’ve hit pan on or used 30 times total, whichever comes first.
Here’s what I had in my little project:
This photo above is from last month, I’ll post a current photo below. I’ve got a Nyx happy birthday palette, the color I got was a green. A single shadow from Sydney Grace called Token, Heron Chic and Nevermore from Bye Bye Birdie palette by Colourpop, Violet Voss Sugar Crystals palette-color sugar crystals, and not shown is a color from my Too Faced christmas palette called Make a Wish. I hadn’t used it enough to grab a photo.
And here’s my usage breakdown:
- Nyx green-16 uses this month for a total of 24 uses. (I feel certain I will roll this out next month.)
- Too Faced Christmas Make a wish used once for a total usage of twice.
- Sydney Grace Token used 18 times for a total use of 30-time to roll it out!
- Birdie Heron Chic used 6 times for a total of 10 uses.
- Birdie Nevermore used 3 times for a total of 6 uses.
- Sugar Crystals used 8 times for a total of 16 uses.
So, I got to roll in a new shadow, which turned out to be a shadow in my Revlon Maverick palette. It’s a matte colored orangey brown, which I think could pair well with the nyx green and maybe even the Too Faced color I haven’t used much at all.
Here’s my update photo for this month. No new pans anywhere, though I’d hoped to get surprise pan on another nyx color. It could happen by next month though. The Sydney Grace single will be leaving the project, and I’ve added in the little maverick palette.
Here are the swatches of the colors for this upcoming month:
I am trusting that new brown matte shadow to look good with the Nyx green and the Too Faced color I’ve barely worn right above it. It might even work with the bye bye birdie shimmer. The best part is that I’ll get to play around with it this month and see how it works for me.
As for what I’ll concentrate on, it’ll be finishing the 30 uses of the nyx green. I’ve only got 6 more uses left, and I am positive I’ll manage that. I will be so pleased to roll that one out! It’s an underperforming shadow at best, and I always need some sort of shadow topper to make it look good. Beyond that I am not sure, but likely I’ll keep chipping away at the violet voss shadow and the colourpop heron chic shadow.
While I am not using much else in my collection so that I can concentrate on this challenge I’ve given myself, I am fully enjoying the challenge. It’s fun to create looks across palettes and it’s also fun to just concentrate on a few palettes and colors.
