17 in 2017 Project Pan Update 4

I feel like I’ve made a ton of progress on this go around! So much Pan!

  1. FINISHED Rollerball Perfume – Replica-Beach Walk

This one is done! I finished this quite early in the month and I loved it. Once I go through a few more of my perfumes I’m definitely buying the full size!

  1. Mac Extra Dimension Eyeshadow in Lorelei

This has been a great addition to the project. It’s been great to use with my all matte Urban Decay Palette. I’m not sure about using it all up this year but I’m already close to hitting pan.

  1. Cream Product- Benefit Majorette Blush

This one has really started to flatten out. I’ve been using it as a base under powder blushes which has helped me to go through it quite a bit. I’m not in love with the product since it pulls so orange on me on it’s own. But under other products or sheered out, it works well.

  1. Item you Love/Hate – Nest- Amazon Lily Perfume

I’m just over half way through this guy! I’m definitely going to be able to finish it up by the end of the year.

  1. FINISHED Highlighter- Smashbox- Hollywood & Highlight Stick

Finished it! This morning actually. I got through this one pretty quickly once I started using it on my shoulders and collar bone. I really enjoyed this product but I’m not sure I would buy the full size. I’m just such a fan of the ColourPop Cream Highlighters. More on that later.

  1. FINISHED Loose Powder Product – Tarte-Smooth Operator Loose Powder

Finished! I don’t know how I got through this so quickly but I’m happy to be done with it. It was a bit too dry on my under eye area. Overall, just not my favorite powder.

  1. DECLUTTERED – Something you haven’t used in a year- Korres Lip Butter- Plum

I ended up decluttering this one. I wasn’t using it and although I like the formula, I don’t like the mess. There is a light pale pink shade (Jasmin) and a clear (Guava) that I would definitely repurchase. I just think that for a tinted lip balm, this had too much tint to apply with fingers.

  1. Something from an Indie Brand – Lunatick Labs- Mystifying Mattifying Pressed Powder

I expanded the pan on this quite a bit this month. I’ve been using it to set all over my face and it’s been working well. I haven’t been using it to touch up but I think it would work well for that.

9. FINISHED – Sample- Davines- OI All In One Milk Spray

Used this one up! This was easy since it was a sample size and I enjoyed using it. I’m not sure that I would repurchase it since I recently chopped all my hair off and it may be a bit much for my shorter hair.

  1. Product with Beautiful Packaging – Kat Von D- Por Vida Blush

I ended up decluttering this one. While I love the packaging and the color, I just wasn’t reaching for it. It’s not the type of blush I go for these days since I prefer more neutral tones. I’ll be passing this along to a friend.

  1. ColourPop Item – Colour Pop’s Overboard Eyeliner.

This has been working really well with the palettes I’ve been choosing. It’s neutral but with the shimmer finish it gives a little something extra. I actually made more progress than I initially thought.

  1. Blush –Rimmel- Santa Rose

It’s been smooth sailing since I hit pan on this little guy. I think I’m going to re-press it so that it’s a bit easier to use. I really hope that I can finish this one this year.

13. Something in a Stick/Tube- Lorac Pro Matte- Pink Taupe

I’m sad about this guy. It broke when I was reapplying it while waiting for the subway and fell to the ground. There’s no coming back from that. I’ve replaced it with the Colour Pop Lippie Stix in Lumiere. Very pretty color that I think I’ll get a lot of use out of this fall.

  1. Something You’re Loving Right Now- Colour Pop- Wisp Highlighter

The pan hasn’t expanded too much on this one but it’s been flattening out with use. While the weather is still nice I’m trying to use this on my shoulders and collar bone. So far so good. But since this is more of a summer shade, I think my use will have to taper off a little bit.

  1. Item of Choice- Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Palette

Hitting pan left and right! I’m 4/5 on this one and that feels great! I chose an all matte palette for this month’s One Month, Two Palette challenge so I might not use it a ton this month. I’m going to try and use it at least once a week to keep momentum going.

16. Item in a color you don’t normally wear- Nars- Funny Face Lipstick

I don’t think I’ve made any progress this month on that one. I want to make an effort to use it more this month. I’d love to get about halfway through this one by the end of the project.

17. Product you dislike- Bare Minerals Buttercream Gloss- Sugar

I’ve decided to call this one done. There’s still product in there but, since I’m not that in love with it, I don’t want to work that hard. Plus, I have other glosses that need to be used, so I’m just going to move on.

I’m super proud of my progress so far! I’m excited to see how far I’ll get with the remainder of these products by the end of the year. How are you guys doing on your project pans?
