Project Pan 2019, and 2018 Results

For the past 2 years, I’ve been doing project pans to finish up the makeup that I own. I don’t own a lot of makeup, but I also think it’s important not to buy a lot that you can never finish. It’s good for your wallet, and the environment too! I’ve been really successful with my project pans, and I hope that I’ll finish a lot more products this year.


The one thing I learned from 2018, was that lip products take a billion years to finish. I’m almost done a lipstick (Aquarius Lippie Stix by Colourpop), but it’s still going strong into 2019. That’s one product I know for sure will be finished this year. There were quite a bit of lip products that I gave away, or threw out because they were very old. However, I think in 2019, I won’t have that issue because I like all of my makeup products, and don’t own anything that’s ancient. I also realized that sometimes I use a product a lot without even noticing, and unexpectedly pan it. I’m pretty happy with my results this year, but I think I can do better in 2019.

Here is what I panned/finished in 2018:
– Caramel eyeshadow by Too Faced
– Beaches and Cream eyeshadow by Makeup Geek
– Porter eyeshadow by Colourpop
– Weenie eyeshadow by Colourpop
– At The Beach Spray by Bath & Body Works
– Peaches and Cream eyeshadow by Too Faced
– Nectar eyeshadow by Too Faced
– Wattles eyeshadow by Colourpop
– L’oreal Eyebrow Definer in Dark Brunette
– Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
– Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara
– Maybelline Total Temptation Brow Pencil
– Burt’s Bee’s lip balm

In 2019, I want to pan the following makeup products:
– Pan 5 eyeshadows in the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette
– Pan 5 eyeshadows in the ABH Modern Renaissance palette
– Colourpop eyeshadow in Stereo
– Milani Nude lip liner
– MAC Morning Coffee lip liner
– NYX lip liner in Nude
– Annabelle lip liner in Boisenberry
– MAC Amorous lipstick
– Urban Decay Naked lipstick
– Clinique liquid liner
– Colourpop Mr. Bing eyeliner
– Bite Beauty Agave Lip Masks in Candy Cane, Maple, and Natural
– Burt’s Bees Lip Balm
– Tarte Sensual Blush
– Fenty Beauty Foundation in 130
– Rimmel Concealer in 125
– Elf highlighter in Moonlight Pearls
– Essence Make Me Brow

Obviously, if I pan anything not on this list, that would be great as well. I want to make use of my products, so whatever I pan means I got my money’s worth! Hopefully, my 2019 results will be epic. What are you planning on panning this year? Let me know if you would like to see a mid-year results post.

Project Pan 2017 Results

The year is almost over, and I have completed my first project pan! I decided to do this with the intention of using up the makeup I own. I may not have a lot of makeup as other people, but I still think it’s important to be using the products you buy. What’s the point of having a whole bunch of makeup if it’s just collecting dust? After a few months of the project, I actually finished a few items! Yay!

This is a picture of the products before. I can’t believe how much I used!

What I finished:
1. Too Faced Creme Lipstick in Honey Bear
2. Tarte Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint in Honey Bear
3. Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara (x3) (always repurchasing)
4. L’OrĂ©al Brow Stylist Definer in Dark Brunette (x2) (always repurchasing)
5. Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer in Fair

What I panned:
1. Too Faced Semi Sweet Palette – Shades: Coconut Creme, Butter Pecan, Nougat
2. Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer in Light Bronzer
3. Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Powder in Porcelain (almost done!)

I’m proud of myself for being able to finish a few makeup items this year. I didn’t end up panning, or finishing, everything I intended to, but I did use them more often! Some things I decluttered because I didn’t like the ingredients. The whole project taught me what makeup products I like, and what I really should skip on. For example, I loved the Too Faced lipstick, but I didn’t like the smell at all. Now, I know that I like sheer lipsticks, but I need to buy one that smells nice! I also figured out that I don’t like face powders that make me look powdery, and the Maybelline one does just that.

I hope that in 2018, I will be able to purchase some items that work better for me. It can be difficult to find your favourite makeup item, but after a few trials and errors, you might just find the right thing. That’s what I’m hoping for next year, that I’ll find a few more holy grail items to replace some of the things I have panned. And, who knows, maybe I’ll be doing another project pan next year.

What are some makeup items you have finished?

My Makeup Collection (2017)

Processed with VSCO with hb2 presetI decided that before the new year begins, I would share my current makeup collection. I am someone who loves makeup, but I do not aspire to have a collection like many makeup bloggers. I don’t want to own 500 lipsticks, or 75 palettes. I may get more makeup throughout time, but I never want to own that much.

My Favourite Fall Makeup

IMG_0218Although the weather is nowhere near fall-like, I’m already thinking about fall makeup looks. I tend to go for bolder, and darker looks in the fall and winter. I can still do a bold look in the summer, but it’s a bit harder when you’re sweating your makeup off in the heat. After looking at my makeup collection, I selected a few items that I love to wear during the fall and winter. Continue reading My Favourite Fall Makeup
