Project 200 Pan Update #1

This is the post I will be breaking down my empties post and sharing which ones will qualify for my 200 used up or panned items in 2018. First, I will share the items that I have hit pan on in January.

I hit pan on 3 items: Elf color correcting face powder in cool, Smashbox purple color corrector, and Lush lip scrub in Mint Julep. I feel like that is a great start to the new year. Now, let’s go over everything from my January Empties post that qualifies for this project.

Everything that counts in these pictures are as follows: all the makeup, all the hair, all the skin care besides the foil packets, Aveeno body lotion, and the Equate one as well. So, that is 11 items (I added together two deluxe sized samples). So, in January I used up 14 out of my 200 goal. I have reached 7 percent of my goal this year. Not that bad for the first month. My basket is already filling up with more items, so I am hoping for anything full February. It is a shorter month, though. I would be happy with another 7% down.

How are you doing with your 2018 goals?

With Love,

Selena

January Empties

Remember when I said that I would be doing a new format for my empty series? Well, here it is, the moment you all have been waiting for. I decided to show my empties in group photos and flat lays to be able to store more pictures of my products rather than have everything in a single photo. It makes more sens to me this way, since I am a reviewing channel and have been deleting a ton of photos to make room for more photos. I hope you all like this new format. Give me a like if you do!

I will be posting my update post on my Project 200 Pan soon after this one, which will show you how many out of this 45 I will be counting towards my 2018 challenge. I might be adjusting the challenge and make it harder. I guess, it all depends upon how much of this stuff I am using up.

Vitamin Collagen Mask

SOO AE Nature Vitamin Collagen Essence Mask

mask

This didn’t smell like oranges or anything, which was a bit disappointing. I did see brightening results though. My skin seemed glowy and healthy looking. I would buy this mask if I was in need of sheet masks. It hydrated my skin and the results lasted a few days. I like that I can pick these up any time at Walmart and they go on sale or on rollback frequently.

Snail Mask

For MJCARE Snail Sheet Mask

mask

I was so scared to try this, but it was just like a normal sheet mask. This was dripping wet with serum running down my neck, but it left my skin really sticky which I did not enjoy. I would not repurchase this kind, because I do not like the sticky feeling. Otherwise, they are very generous with the serum.

Project 200 Pan: Intro

I have so many posts to write and share that I feel like I won’t be caught up until March. I haven’t posted a product review in FOREVER and my blog used to be all about the reviews. I want to get back to that, but for right now, I have so many posts to write for the new year. Once everything calms down, get ready for a storm of reviews. LOL. I’m going to try to sprinkle some in when I can, but gosh, inspiration can be a bad thing as well. I was feeling so uninspired in 2017 and now, I am full of ideas and projects.

My Project 200 Pan is to hit pan and use up 200 assorted beauty products including but not limited to makeup, body, skin, and hair care. Basically anything beauty related and I will count foil packets and perfume samples. 5 of them will be counted as 1 item. I am counting full size and deluxe as well in this project. I am counting every time I hit pan in a powder product as 1 as well. So, if I pan an eye shadow, blush, bronzer, highlighter, etc it will count and if I finish it, I will be counting it again.

I will be doing my empty posts as well. These Project Pan posts will be more about counting the items and adding up the monetary amount and keep me accountable every month. I hope you all enjoy these posts this year.

With Love,

Selena

Project $200 Pan Finale

I had fun for the past 6 months trying to use up $200 worth of makeup products. I already know that I have won this challenge and I feel really proud of myself. I know that this year’s challenge will be a success as well as long as I work at it and don’t slack off too much. Now, let’s recap from last month. I used upĀ $189.18. I think I beat the $200 mark for sure with these two products.

I finished the Laura Mercier loose setting powder at $4.56. The Vampire perfume went for $20.00. So I bet my goal of $200. I ended my project in December at $213.74! This was such a fun project and I look forward to the new project that I am planning next year. Stay tuned to find out what I am doing in 2018!

December Empties

Instead of saying another month gone, I’ll say another year gone this time around. I believe the older you are, the faster time seems to go by. Time never went by this fast when I was in high school. It only ever went fast when I was actually enjoying my life. Now, days that drag and days that fly, all seem to go at the same pace. Sounds cliche and maybe it is but it is also the truth. I would never go back in time. I want to always be moving forward, never going back. For the new year empties, I am going to be trying a new style of empty posts. Stay tuned until Feb to see the new empties.

December was a light month for me and January is already looking better. I have been decluttering some makeup products here and there that are just not good anymore. As I go throughout the year, I plan on decluttering anything that I don’t like that I know are recent products to friends and anything else can and will be thrown away. It’s time for a new me that doesn’t keep products around just to have them.

With Love,

Selena
