Finish by Summer/ Spring Project Pan Update No.1

Hey all!

This past month has flown by so fast for me. We moved apartments over spring break so I didn't use much makeup, but then I did my sisters makeup twice for photos so I feel like I did make up for that. In some of my products I see significant change and some only a millimeter or so. I really need to put up a post it to remind myself to use some items as well, that has helped me in the past but I haven't added that to my new set up yet.

Project Pan Items 6/7 remaining 

  1. Urban decay 24/7 pencil liner perversion |still a nub!| I usually use this to tighten but I admit I dint do it everyday and if I'm too lazy to sharpen it I just skip the step. At this rate it'll take until June. 




2.   Urban decay smog eyeshadow| widened pan in the middle| I used this more often than not, but if I'm not wearing makeup, or much makeup eyeshadow is usually the first thing to go. The pan is a little wider but I mostly focused flattening the sides. 


3. MAC Prolongwear Concealer in nc45 |7-10% left, previously 15%| I've gotten dark enough that I don't have to mix this with my foundation but I still can if I want. I'm going to need another for my sisters wedding because this shade works on her so I may end up repurchasing after its gone. This is definitely a staple concealer.


4. Tarte lights camera action mascara sample |opened 3/1| I've been using this in conjunction with my Loreal Telescopic and its great. I probably won't purchase the full size but I really am enjoying it. 



5 . MAC mineralize skin finish natural in deep dark | About 40 squares showing, previously 20 | I've been working on this by using it as a bronzer, I'm really happy with the progress. 






6. Shea moisture jbco leave in  |20-25%,previously full| This is a great shaving cream and the scent doesn't last on my skin so I don't mind it as much. 



7. Oyin handmade juices n berries |DONE|  I liked this, finished on 4/5 and I already replaced it with a Creme of Nature one. 





  • NEW ADDITION!  MAC fluid line in black track. I have a big dip going and I would like to hit pan on it before summer. 




Project Progress- Spring 

This part of the project is just to focus on some items and get use out of them. I got into a pattern last year where I bought items "for the future" but by the time "the future" came I had moved on. I want to make sure I dedicate some effort to these products this spring season.


(Goal-dents) urban decay mildew/shattered/grifter - I probably used these 5 times combined so thats no bueno. I need to get braver with adding color to my looks! You can see some use in Mildew, used it on my lash line. 




(Goal-dip) Mac indianwood paint pot- The dip in this one is steadily growing but I could stand to use it more. I have used it a few times as valid shade when I want wearing much makeup. 


(Goal-half) Nyx peaches & cream butter gloss - I haven't been using this one either, I keep misplacing it I found it under the couch before taking the picture. I do want to get to the second set of writing on the packaging by June. 


(Goal-half) Mac RiRi woo - I probably wore this one 3 times which is a lot considering I never wear red lips. I want to wear this on a weekly basis. Its very hard to photograph but I did measure it on the first update, and 'll do it again in June. 




(Goal-dent) becca opal pressed - I was really good about wearing this in the inner corner of my eye, unfortunately thats a very small area. I will continue to try and make it work. The texture shown in the middle is the use so far.





 Thanks for stopping by!

Finish 7 by Summer (With a twist!)

This winter I was able to finish 12 products during a Project 24 pan I was working on. I decided to call that project quits after I saw that Spring was here. A change in season is a great reason to change up your make up. This spring I definitely want to finish up some older products but I'm running out of really old items! I decided to focus on some old and bring in some new, not to finish them but just to make some progress. You'll see that some of these products are roll overs from my last projects.  I want to participate in the 7 bt Summer challenge, but I know most of my products will be done by June 27th. As I finish things I can choose whether to sub in more things or not.


Project Pan Items

  1. urban decay 24/7 pencil liner perversion |nub!| I've been working on this pencil since December. I really like it but it is 2+ years old and drying out a bit. 
  2. Urban decay smog eyeshadow|major pan| This one is from the naked palette. I have a backup in the ammo palette. It's already got good pan, so I may as well finish it. 
  3. MAC Prolongwear Concealer in nc45 |down to the last bits| I've been making a bb cream with this and it's moving fast. I want to do a b2m soon and this will be my 6th item. 
  4. Tarte lights camera action mascara sample |opened 3/1| I really like this one and I've been crushing samples. 
  5. mac msf natural in deep dark | About 15-20 squares showing | I've been working on this one and I've been widening the pan since January. If I get enough sun I can wear it all over my face. 
  6. Shea moisture jbco leave in |full| This stuff stinks like playdoh:/ I will use it as a shaving cream until it's gone. 
  7. Oyin handmade juices n berries|20% left | I like this but I want to try a different one. 








Project Progress- Spring 

This part of the project is just to focus on some items and get use out of them. I got into a pattern last year where I bought items "for the future" but by the time "the future" came I had moved on. I want to make sure I dedicate some effort to these products this spring season. 
  1. (Progress-dents) urban decay mildew/shattered/grifter - just focusing on spring colors. I plan to use these mostly on the bottom lash line though. 
  2. (Progress-dip) Mac indianwood paint pot- it will pair well with smog 
  3. (Progress-half) Nyx peaches & cream butter gloss - I loved my raspberry tart shade this winter and this shade makes my nudes and mlbb look beautiful. 
  4. (Progress-half) Mac RiRi woo - this is one of my oldest if not my oldest lippie at this point. As much as I love it, It would be a waste to not use it. 
  5. (Progress-dent) becca opal pressed - I find myself loving this so much I want more shades but the reality is I need to see some major progress before justifying purchases like this. It's not something I wear daily or can wear a lot of. 


Project 24 Pan--FINALE! (Written 3/22)

I know its been a while, but I haven't forgotten about my project pan goals! I kept putting off my updates so I could have more finished, and then time got away from me! Ill go through the list and tell you all how it went. 

  1. maybelline color tattoo bad to the bronze | I made a huge dent! I felt pretty defeated about it at first but now I'm just glad I made some progress. I can always come back to it later. My favorite way to use this is to pop it in the middle of the lid under a darker shimmery shadow like Urban Decay Barlust!
  2. urban decay naked palette toasted e/s | I hated this eyeshadow! But I HIT PAN!!!! Go me Goal Reached!
  3. itsjudytime tan shade | I finished this one up last, I had to re-press it. I ended up using it on my lids and cheekbones to make the final bit disappear. Goal Reached!
  4. itsjudytime brown script dupe | I Hit pan on this one pretty easily with my Mac 224. Goal Reached!
  5. urban decay 24/7 pencil liner perversion |This little guy  taught me to love pencil liners, but he's still kicking!
  6. urban decay liquid liner Perversion | The brush on this one broke, its is a big problem with UD packaging because Ive owned 3 of these. I called this one done. Goal Reached!
  7. loreal mascara miss magna mascara Finished on 1/3 Will not repurchase, the wand didnt grab the lashes enough 
  8. too faced Better than sex sample | Very thickening mascara with a dry formula.Liked it and would consider purchasing. Goal Reached!
  9. Milani Brow Kit in Dark (middle shade) Hit Pan 1/13.  Will not repurchase as it does not stay on the brows all day, but it is a great outer corner eyeshadow so I'll continue to use it.
  10. nars sheer glow foundation in macao Finished 1/16. This is a holy grail product I would definitely repurchase next time I'm light enough for it. 
  11. covergirl ready set flawless in 315 | I mixed with is a darker redder foundation because this one is SOOOO OLIVE! I looked like the grinch lol. Its still hanging around. 
  12. mac prolongwear concealer in nc45 | This one progresses so slowly. Its still around. 
  13. becca shimmering skin perfectors  topaz&rose gold | These broke me out after keeping the samples around for a few weeks. I'm sure the full product wouldn't do that it I won't purchase a full size. 
  14. benefit sunbeam | I destashed this, old liquid highlighter samples break me out.  
  15. mac blush fleur power | I used this every day and made a dent, the pan is so far away!
  16. mac msf natural in deep dark | I have major pan on this! Goal Reached!
  17. mac lipstick in rebel l/s | I decided to de-pot this and call it a day.
  18. nyx butter gloss in purple l/g |I didn't finish it but its about halfway down now!
  19. kat von d lolita sample lipstick | I finished this at the beginning of March. Goal Reached!
  20. buxom full bodied lip color in San Francisco | I decided to destash b/c I didn't like the tingle. 
  21. coach poppy perfume |I finished this finally after years of owning it. Goal Reached!
  22. origins night a mins |I started using this as a handcream because it broke out my face.  Goal Reached!
  23. victoria secret love spell | I destashed after never wanting to use it, it was free anyway. 
  24. first aid beauty facial cleanser | My skin got too dry for this stuff so I'll pick back up use in the summer.
Wrap-up: 
12 Products Finished
8 Products Quit, but Kept
4 Products I Destashed

I'm really happy with the progress I made over the last 3 months. I learned so much about my tastes and preferences, and I can use that knowledge to inform my future purchases. Now I'm ready to start two new projects for the spring. Look out for details in a future post.
