It’s that time again! A new month and that means I’m starting a new Project Pan! I have seven items that I’m going to be working on over the next couple of months to get them out of my makeup stash and make room for newer products. If you aren’t sure what a Project Pan is click here to get directed to the page where I explain it and have an ongoing list of my project pans.
This go around I want to give it a twist. I’m deriving all of my products for this from my Items to Use in 2016 list in my Bullet Journal. Some of them I want to use up so I can force myself to learn how to use them, some have been in my collection forever, and some I just have too many versions of.
Profusion 48 Shadow Pallet
This pallet is actually so old it’s discontinued. When I got it, it was already used a little but nothing had hit pan yet. My guess is that it’s at least 4 years old, and I loved using it so much when it was the only eyeshadows I had. When I started doing Ipsy, I had recieved more eyeshadows and started using them more instead of this pallet. Lately, I’ve been feeling like my makeup has gone boring, and I wanted to add a little more color to it. This definitely gives me options.
On top of that, I’ve been considering learning how to contour (not for every day though) and this pallet also has three blush shades (one that seems to me like a cool brown that I can use.)
So for this Project Pan, I’m hoping to hit pan on at least three colors.
Hoof Stop the Bite Nail Polish
This item comes from my last project pan and I’ve almost finished it. To me it seems like it has about a month left on it, and since my last pan I’ve been wearing it only on days where I’m at work and stressed to where I start biting my nails. For this Project Pan, I want to finish the bottle, so I am going full force and using it by the directions of two coats twice a day. It’s gotten a little bit on the thick and clumpy side so it may come down to I have to throw it out before using it all.
The Unnamed Eyeliner
Another item from my last Project Pan, though this is the backup I want to get through. I’ve realized that I have 4 other brown eyeliners from different brands and this one is about 3 years old. This one is actually shorter than the last one I worked on so it shouldn’t be long before I finish it.
Pixi by Petra Natural Brow Duo in Deep Brunette
I’ve been filling in my brows for a little while now, but I’ve mainly worked with powder and brow gel. I really want to learn and get used to working with a brow pencil as well so I can have options. Also, I’ll admit my brow game is pretty bad. Hopefully getting comfortable with a brow pencil will really help bump it up a notch.
Ulta Professional Flawless Prime Sample
I got this in a gift with purchase at Ulta. It’s a green primer that should help with redness before I even put on my foundation. I’ve already used a bit of it, and it kind of works. It’s actually part of my Products to use up in 2016 since it’s considered a sample, and I just want to get through all of my samples before the end of the year.
NYX Butter Gloss in Peaches and Cream
This is seriously my go to when it come to lipsticks and glosses. The formula is amazing and feels great! Unfortunately I have way too many lipsticks in my collection that I don’t use very often. I already know that I’m going to purchase this one again but I wanted to see how long it would really take me to get through it.
Noyah Lipstick in Desert Rose
This is another sample I got in my Ipsy bag a few months back. I haven’t used it much but it works perfectly with my NYX Butter Gloss. Maybe I’ll hit two birds with one stone?
This Project Pan will be about 4 months long. Mainly because some of these items will last a couple of months at most. One thing I will definitely do different than the last Project Pan is that I will wear them daily. Last time, I had days where I didn’t wear it because I was home and so I couldn’t go through some of them as fast.
