Pan That Pallet Update #4

It is time for my fourth update for my Pan That Pallet Challenge of 2017. Honestly though, I haven’t had much progress with this one. I’ve been concentrating on using the eye shadow in my 6 Before Summer challenge, which I am half way done with that cream eye shadow. I haven’t really used this pallet much this past month. I’ve used the creams more than the eye shadow. I’ve really used the purple color corrector a lot. I really think that there will be pan the next month at the next update. I like to use the purple in my smile lines and above my top lip where there tends to be shadows. This brightens that area up considerably and looks natural under foundation/bb cream.

As you can see, Sunrise and Almond has dips in them. I’ve just started using Nector and Sunlight, so I have only scratched the surface on those. My favorite color is Sunrise. It is such a beautiful metallic gold and looks very flattering as a lid color. I think I will be hitting pan on Sunrise by the next update. I really love the cream side of this pallet as well. So, I will be using those this summer as my weekend/day off makeup. I don’t want them to dry up. I can make the darker orange work by mixing it with the lighter higlighter next to the bronzer. So far, I have hit one piece of my goal, which is to hit pan on four eye shadows: I have three more pans to go. I also want to use up 4 of the creams, but I will settle for hitting pan on four of the creams. I am 1/8 done with my project pan that pallet. I’ll be happy to hit pan on four products though. I know 8 is stretching it, but it will keep me motivated. What pallet are you panning? If you are a project panner, please comment below so that I can follow you. I love following the progress of others!

Lippie Stix

For ColorPOP Lippie Stix in Bound (Glossy)

This lipstick dried down true to color, but when you first apply it, it is a bright Barbie pink. Barbie pink is not flattering on my lips, even when I do have a tan. I used this up around the house, because I love the formula. When it dries down, it is a dusty rose color. I would love to have one in a more nude color. I will repurchase once I use up more of my collection. I cannot justify a makeup purchase if I do not use up what I have, even though I do not have that much. I love using up items and the high that comes with it is fantastic. I like the ColorPop brand and I think it is cruelty-free. I want to try to purchase cruelty-free whenever I can.

May Empties

I have a whole lot of empties this month that my basket was overflowing. I had to photograph everything and start this post in mid-May. That is how many empties I have this month. I actually even cut May a few days short. I’m writing this on May 28th, because the basket filled up good again. It’s close enough to the end of May and it will just give a little bit of a boost to June. Although, I don’t have anything really close to being empty yet, which is why I just decided to do my count today.

I think 51 empties is enough for one month. I’m happy ending it here early. This was such a heavy month. I look forward to seeing what I can accomplish next month. You’ll be seeing plenty of reviews for the next few months to come. I’m behind in my product reviews. I have so many prewritten on paper for my blog. I probably have 50 reviews right now, waiting to be featured. I continue to write them throughout the month as well on paper. I tend to review around 40 items a month on paper, but there is not that many days in a month. Naturally, I got behind. I hope you don’t mind seeing reviews 5 days a week and my more unique posts on the weekends/holidays.

6 Before Summer Update #1

I am happy to report that I finished 1 of the original six and I finished the replacement that I added in as well. So far, I have finished two products out of the project. I am 1/3 done with my project. I just have to finish four more or reach the end date to call it quits. I finished off two face masks in my project. I replaced them with a sheet mask that I haven’t used yet. I find it hard to use up a sheet mask, but I have many and I need to use them up. I cannot wait to show you my progress!

I finished off the Lush Cup O’ Coffee scrub and The Body Shop Tea Tree Face mask. I have replaced them with the Tony Moley I’m Real Red Wine Sheet Mask. I’m hoping to use this up this weekend at some point and if I do, I’m going to replace it with another sheet mask. After that, I’ll probably throw in my Proactive sulfur mask. I’m happy to be moving through my masks, since I got three new ones for my birthday!

I have so much progress with my Wen Sweet Almond Mint Volumizing Treatment Spray. I just use it like hair spray. It doesn’t do much for my hair and I don’t care for the crunchy, flaky mess the day after I use this. I’ll be happy when I finish this up for sure. Then I can move onto my mouse from either Tresseme or Big Sexy Hair.

I didn’t use it for the first two weeks, because I forgot to. I’ve been using it everyday since. The progress is slow going as a deodorant. This powder fluffs up a lot when you use it. I really had to work to settle the product for a good measuring picture. I like to use a couple of shakefulls underneath my arm pits before I go in with an aluminum deodorant. I use this on its own when I’m at home, but if I’m going to work or out, I layer them up. I’m trying to use this up, because I didn’t like it in my hair. I think it does a better job as a deodorant. I also use this on my sweaty feet to dry them up and I’m enjoying it for that way as well. Maybe, I can get through it faster this summer.

I think we are all surprised about this progress and I wanted to show the “window” to prove it. This is 4 grams of eye shadow that I only use on the weekends, but I am moving pretty fast through this. I’m thinking creams are just easier to use up than powders. I’m about half way through this tube. Not sure I can really use up all of it by then end of this project, but I think I’ll have most of it used up by then. I’m not into metallic purple, so I put a layer of nude powder eye shadow on top of this and it softens the look. I’ve been enjoying using this and making it into a more neutral eye look.

The right is my progress. I’m a little less than half way through the perfume. I am moving to an easier way to view how much I have left in the container, because I think it’s easier to see. I used this perfume every single day and I love it a lot. I’ll be sad when it’s done, but I want the original Be Delicious perfume. This is a great Spring scent that I will be putting away for next year if I don’t finish it before the finale.

As you can see, I have worn down the dome shape to the product. This is almost 6 grams of blush, so I don’t think I’ll be finishing it. I enjoy using it during the work week for a nice glow, but it isn’t my favorite. It tends to be blotchy and not easy to blend out evenly no matter what I use whether a brush or sponge. I’ll be happy when it’s gone and I won’t be repurchasing. I like the color enough to use it, but the formula is splotchy.

That’s it for my update. Hopefully, I’ll be able to use up four more products to call this project a success. I have high hopes for this one!

Pan That Pallet Update #2 & #3

It has been two months since my last update. I have hit pan on one of my eye shadows in my Smashbox Lightening Theory Pallet and I am close to hitting pan in the gold shadow that I love so much. I’ve been trying to use an eye shadow that is in my project pan, otherwise I would have hit pan on the gold one already. I think I will hit pan on that one by the next update. It might take a couple of updates to hit pan on another nude, all over shade. The darker crease shades might take until the end of the year, because I don’t use that much of it in my crease. I only use three to four eye shadows at most. I also only use eye shadow on the weekends and still made decent progress.

I didn’t make much progress on any of the creams, but I have been using them every weekend. You just need a swipe or a dab on each area, so you’re not really using them that much. I think I might hit pan on the purple corrector eventually, because it is the most used. I really love it for brightening up the smile lines on my face. It tends to cast a shadow, so the purple under foundation just works to brighten everything up. I also use it under my eyes after using the peach corrector and the highlighter in this pallet. I’ve really been enjoying using it and I’m not sick of it. I think as long as you add things in with it, like an eye liner, blush, eye shadow, or anything different, it mixes it up and it gives you a whole new look.
