We are now through 7 months of my rolling project pan and I am still enjoying it quite a bit. I still love that I am concentrating on just 6 makeup items at once and allowing myself to explore other parts of my collection in the mornings. I may do another full face project someday, but this year it’s been nice to roll through 6 at a time. 6ish I suppose, since I sometimes add makeup items to my partners in cream project pan.
The list as of last month:
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.
10. A Unique product
And the photo of where I was last month:
I had added the little pan of frankenhighlight after finishing up some setting powder. Other than that, nothing new rolled in or out. Here’s my photo for today:
Sorry about the weird shadow!
I met my goal on my expensive product! My hourglass dim light powder finally has pan. It’s a waffle pan, and I am thrilled to have gotten there.
My drugstore product is my nyx eyebrow pencil. I have used it a bit but not a ton. I hope to make better progress in this upcoming month.
An old favorite-this is my benefit hula bronzer sample. I’ve expanded the pan a tiny bit, but I’ve actually been concentrating on wearing down the pan in the area it is the thickest rather than expanding the pan. The expanded pan was just a bonus.
A product I haven’t used in a while is my blue L’oreal liner, and my goal was to use it past the L’Oreal branding. While it’s hard to see in the photo, I can still see the long part of the “L” so this stays in my project for another month. I am positive I’ll be done after that.
A product of my choosing is my it cosmetics cc cream, and I did mark this one with a pink line. I think I will have this done by next month, I’ve been hitting it pretty hard. But I do also have 3 foundations in my project right now. I will concentrate on one other, then I will concentrate on this one.
And my unique product is my frankenhighlight from my very first ever depotting experience and my first ever experience trying to combine things I didn’t like to get something I did like. The pan is massively expanded. I’ve used it as a highlighter but mostly I use it as an inner corner highlight when putting on eyeshadow. I am hoping to finish this up by next month as well. But I am not certain I can do so at the rate I am using it currently.
So, that leaves one item I can roll in under a new prompt. The prompt is “A product you don’t like” and it was a very easy choice. I like the vast majority of my makeup collection right now! But I did purchase this white colourpop eyeliner that I just hate. Most of it has broken off in use and kind of flown across the room at different times during use. One piece landed in my coffee once, and I didn’t find it until I finished my coffee. The remaining piece I can’t even show you as it has broken off at the base so I have to be careful in using it, and careful not to drop it. There’s a limit to how much longer it will last, and hopefully, that limit will be about a month. We will see how it goes.
In any case, it’s been a pretty good month for panning and I am looking forward to being able to roll out a few more items next month. Maybe!
