You may or may not have noticed but I completely abandoned my project pan and my beauty balance posts when I abandoned the blog temporarily. I am not upset about it. I had fun while it lasted, made use of my products, and got what I needed out of it. I am ready to move on.
Beauty Balance posts aren’t coming back. I just….don’t care. I’ve been throwing empty stuff away willy nilly and kind of loving it. And sometimes I buy stuff too, and that’s fine as long as it doesn’t get out of hand.
But, I still kind of want to do a little project pan. A little something to concentrate on specific products. So, I’ve put together an A to Z project. This will have maybe monthly updates. It will not be rolling. Once the items are gone, they are gone. Or rather, once a goal is hit, the items roll out. I anticipate this being a year long project but mostly I just want to see if I can hit goal on everything and then do something new.
I’ve chosen a wide variety, some items should be fairly easy to use, some will be longer term. Some I won’t even use until later in the year. This is also rather eyeshadow heavy, there are two palettes I really want to see a lot of use in this year. I am also not going to hold myself carefully to one month updates, I’ll just get to them when I get to them. And finally, I am also going to track progress. If I use the item on a particular day, it will get tracked. I do like that idea very much.

I really had to start getting creative there in the end, trying to make the makeup in my collection fit a letter. But I think I did it just fine! I’ve gone a little heavy on eyeshadows, but ABH palettes tend to be softly pressed, and I’ve used the tarte palette loads. The others are all more of a primer setting shadow, so I should be able to get those done as well. There’s a number of foundations but they are all sample sizes or heavily used already. I think the blush and bronzer will be the hardest to hit goal on, perhaps the highlighter as well. But, that cover FX palette is one I’d like to pan in the future so getting some good use on it will help get me closer to that goal. Since we are already mid-February, my plan is for the first update on this one to be the beginning of April. I am eager to get started!
