Project Pan and Products to Use Up in 2017 Update

Hello lovelies! Today I’m back with a long overdue update on the products that are in my project pan and products that I want to use up in 2017. I have used up a few items and made some progress on others. There is one item that I am just getting rid of because it just got old and smells weird.

Let’s start with the one item that I’m just getting rid of. I’m getting rid of the Victoria’s Secret Noir Tease. I’m getting rid of it because the scent changed and just doesn’t smell right. So because of that I’m no longer going to hold on to it.

The next few items are products that I have used up. I have used up the Benefit Porefessional Primer, the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer, the Nivea A Kiss of Mint and Minerals Lip Balm, Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash, and the Aveeno Skin Relief Gentle Scent Lotion. I know I haven’t used up nearly as many items as I would like. The summer has been really hot, and I’ve been in the pool a lot. For me, it just didn’t make sense to put on make up and take it off an hour later.

The rest of the items I have made minimal progress. Like I said I haven’t worn much makeup over the summer and just recently started putting on a little bit of makeup in the last month. I mentioned in another post that in the Chicagoland area we are still in the 80s, which is basically give me the sunscreen and ditch the makeup.

The next group of items that I will probably finish up by the end of the year. I should be able to finish up the E.L.F. HD Under Eye Setting Powder, Maybelline The Falsies Push-Up Drama Waterproof Mascara, NYX butter gloss in Creme Brulee, Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover, OPI Natural Nail Base Coat, Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in White Russian, and MAC All That Glitters eye shadow. I will let you know of Instagram if I finish up anything between now and my next update.  If there is anything that you want to see progress on that I’ve shown in the past, let me know.

I think that’s everything for today. If you would like for me to continue doing posts like these, let me know. I would love to hear from you! Have a great weekend! I will see you in my next post.

Project Pan Winter Edition~Update!

Hello everyone! Today is all about the progress that I’ve made with my project pan products. The guidelines were to finish or hit pan on 8 products by May 6th and give you at least one update. Let’s jump right in!

So far I have finished one product. I finished the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer. I know in the glass it looks like there is still a bunch of product on the bottom. There really isn’t there is some that is on the side of the glass, but it’s a paint in the butt to get out. I liked this but I probably won’t be repurchasing any time soon.

The next group of products I feel will be used up by the time the last update comes around.

Nivea A Kiss of Mint & Minerals Lip Balm

Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in White Russian

Benefit the Porefessional Primer

MAC eye shadow in All That Glitters

These last few products, I may finish if I try really hard to consistently use them daily.

Victoria’s Secret Noir Tease

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey

Benefit Watts Up Highlighter

That’s everything that I have an update on. I will hopefully reach my goal of finishing 8 products by May 6th. Would you like me to do these project pans quarterly or seasonally? What do you think? Let me know in the comments. I would love to hear from you! Have a great week!

 

Project Pan Finale!!

Hello lovelies! So today I’m giving you the last update on my Project Pan. Let me get the bad news out of the way first. I did not reach my goal of finishing 10 out of the 15 products that I chose. I believe that I chose too many challenging items to try and complete in the time frame that I gave myself. On the other hand I think I balanced it out with enough products that I would be able or should have finished. Although I was not successful, I learned a lot about the way I use items. I am looking forward to do many more project pans. So let me go through everything.

Completely Finished

Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer

It’s a 10 Leave-In Conditioner

Garnier Blackhead Eliminating Scrub

Blistex Silk & Shine

Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub in Tropical Mango

Almost Done

Buxom Full-On Lip Creme in White Russian

Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream

Nivea Lip Butter (Lost it)

Clarins Mission Perfection Serum

NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee

Aussie Sprunch Spray

Nowhere Close to Being Finished

Matrix Silk Wonder Smoothing Oil

Marc Jacobs Dot

Aussie Heat Protecting Shine Spray

Smashbox Limitless Eyeliner in Onyx

That is everything! This brings my first Project Pan to a close. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. See you in my next post!

Project Pan Update #4

Hello Lovelies! Welcome to day 3 of Blogmas! Today is the second to last update of my Project Pan. I’m very happy that I was able to complete 2 more products! I finished up my TreeHut Mango Body Scrub and the It’s a 10 Leave-In Conditioner. That brings me to a total of 5 finished products.

As a reminder of the rules of what a project pan is and how many products I want to use up. A project pan is a group of items, 10, 15, 20, etc. that you want to use up or hit pan on, within a certain time frame. This is my first project pan. I chose 15 products and have a goal of using up 10 of those products. I started my project pan back in August and gave myself until the very end of 2016. There will be one more final update to see how many products I actually finished, what I didn’t and my thoughts on the whole experience.

That’s all for now. Anyone else working on their own project pan? Let me know! See you all in a couple of days in my next post. Happy Monday!

Project Pan Update #3

Hello lovelies! I know that this update is a little late going up but I wanted to update you all anyways. This will be short and sweet and I’m not going to go through every item. The only new item that I have essentially used up is my Blistex Silk n Shine Lip Balm. I have to use my finger now in order to get the product out of the tube. I could use a lip brush, but for a lip balm it just doesn’t seem worth it to me to do that. I have moved on to the Nivea Lip Butter in order to try and finish that as well by the end of the year.

The next few items that should be done within this next month, the body scrub, which I feel is the never ending tub, the Clinique eye cream, and the Clarins Serum. Honestly, I don’t see my self finishing up any of my hair products or my perfume, but I have made quite a bit of progress with the perfume. I’m over the scent and have a list of perfumes that I would like to get and some samples I have received.

I originally gave myself to December 5th to finish at least 10 items, and I thought how ridiculous that is! I still have 3 more weeks of the year left. There’ll be one more update before the final reveal of everything that I have used up. I am hopeful that I will reach my goal of 10, and look forward to doing another project pan in the future. Have a great Monday and I’ll see you in my next post!
