Project Pan Update #4

Hi! I seriously can't believe it is time for another update! I have some good news and bad news. Good news is everything has been used at least once this month! YAY! Bad News is I don't have as many empties as I would like. I think I said last update that 10 was my goal and I have 5. But let's go ahead and get started the my empties that are not Project Pan related.
First is this BBW White Citrus Fragrance Mist. I got this in a gift set last Christmas and I finally finished it. I mostly used this as an air freshener because I wasn't too fond of wearing the scent. But it is all gone.
Next is this little Benefit They're Real Mascara. If you've heard of this mascara then you probably know it's awesome. I definitely will repurchase this.
This product I wasn't super impressed with. I used up this little Smashbox Photo Finish Primer. I heard how amazing this primer was and I just wasn't very impressed with it. It's not bad but not nearly as good as people made it out to be. I do have one more of these to finish but I won't repurchase.
And lastly a product I would repurchase. I tried this Olay Pore Minimizing Cleanser and Scrub. This didn't make a huge difference in my pores but I really liked it. I'm going to try a new face wash but I might come back to this.
Now for my 5 Project Pan empties. First is my FAKE Urban Decay Binge pencil. I can't get it to sharpen any more and it's too scratchy to use around my eyes. So this is finished!
Next is my Purelogy Silk Bodifier. I used this a LOT this month and it is finally gone. This stuff is supposedly 100% vegan but it smells like plastic. I keep hearing fantastic things about Pureology shampoo and conditioner but this stuff was so bad I don't know if I want to try their shampoo and conditioner.
Next is my BBW Cherry Blossom spray. I love this and I already repurchased it.(:
This product I will not repurchase. The ELF HD Powder leaves my skin with a white cast when I apply it. Also the packaging it messy and bulky.
For my last empty I am super proud of this one. I finished one of my Bare Mineral eyeshadows. I finished Coffee Bean this month. I won't repurchase this because it's just a basic matte dark brown. Plus I like pressed eyeshadows better than loose.They just make a mess. I only have 8 more in the set to finish!

Next is an update on my progress on everything else. I still have quite a ways to go but I have managed to make some progress on everything.

1. L'Oreal Lumi Foundation- I have used this a few times this month but the main focus has still been on my Revlon one. It's down to about the dots right about warm. I have been just wearing this foundation on it's own but I think for next month I would like to try mixing it with some of my everyday foundations.

2. Cover FX Powder- This has been my main powder this month and I have made some good progress. I'm hoping to have this is my empties next update.

3. MAC Angel Lipstick- This did get used quite a few times but maybe not as much as I would like. There is still quite a bit left.

4. Big Sexy Hairspray- This is almost gone. I was hoping to have it finished up by the time of this update but I've been trying not to use hairspray as much since it has alcohol in it. Alcohol is drying to your hair which doesn't help with growing it out and keeping it healthy. It should be empty by my next update for sure.

5. ELF Blush and Bronzer Duo- I have used these both quite a few times this month. I feel like the blush shows more progress than the bronzer. I have been using the bronzer but very lightly so it's probably going to take longer. Hopefully once spring is closer I will have better progress with the bronzer.

6. Bare Mineral Buxom Princess Lip Gloss- This is nearing the end too. Hopefully next update it will be finished.

7. Sephora Shadow Pencil- I have used this a lot this month as an eyeshadow base and I feel like you can see a difference from last month. I would like to use this up by next month too. I'm starting to feel like I'm seeing the end of this Project Pan with so many products almost gone.

8. Sephora Flashy Liner Pencil- This I think got used a few times and did get sharpened again. It's a little smaller!

9. MAC Yogurt Eyeshadow- This has been used a lot this month but still no signs of pan :/
10. Bare Mineral Eyeshadow in Cocoa- This did get used quite a bit this month. I feel like a few more months and this will be gone.

11. Bare Mineral Eyeshadow in Gold Dipped- This was used a few times but still quite a bit left.

12. Bare Mineral in Sugar Plum- I think this was used like twice but maybe only once.

13. Bare Mineral Eyeshadow in Lemon Zinger- It was used but probably not a lot of progress.

14. Bare Mineral Eyeshadow in Cupcake- This actually did get used quite a few times. I feel I made pretty good progress with this one.

15. Bare Mineral Eyeshadow in Good Fortune- This was used but since this set has so many gold/yellow colors they don't get used as much.

16. Bare Mineral Eyeshadow in Champagne- I think this is probably going to be the next eyeshadow I finish or Cocoa.

17. Bare Mineral Eyeshadow in Bon Bon- There isn't a lot of this left which really surprises me. I think this one didn't have as much product as the others.

18. Smashbox Burlesque Quad- I used all the colors in this at least once! Yes even the grey cream color. I used it as a base once but wasn't sure happy with the look. This is going to take me forever to finish but the pigmentation sucks so it's hard to want to use it.

19. Smashbox Burlesque Lip Gloss Duo- I did use this a few times but I haven't used it a lot because I've been focusing on other things.

20. Smashbox Burlesque Shimmer- I quit using this as a face highlighter because I didn't like it. I have been applying it as a body shimmer and it has been going a little faster.

21. BBW Twilight Woods Body Mist- I have used this quite a few times even though I have been more focused on Cherry Blossom. I think a few more months and this will be finished. I would like to have it finished by next update though.

22. BBW Midnight Pomegranate Body Mist- I didn't use this a lot because I wanted to buy a replacement but Bath & Body Works is no longer going to make this scent. So I had to decide to stock up from online or let it go. I decided to go ahead and let it go. I have tons more scents I like so I'm ok with letting go of one. Next update this will be empty I'm sure.

23. Avon Brazil Beat Body Mist- If I could suck it up and use these body mists I would have more empties. This one is almost gone. I used it at least twice this month. If I could suck it up this could be gone by next update but it is a summery scent so I'm not really feeling it right now.

24. BBW Aromatherapy Stress Relief Lotion- I have used this quite a few times. I'm hoping to have it in my next empties. Lotion can go quickly if you apply frequently.

25. Big Sexy Hair Blow Dry Volumizing Gel- I used this probably 4 times this month so it has went down. I will be focusing on this more this month.

26. Revlon ColorStay Whipped Foundation- This foundation has been my main focus this month. It's getting there and I'm glad because I hate the smell of this.

27. Aveda Pure Abundance Spray- I did use this a few times but I would say it's still about 75% full. It should get used more this next month.

28. MAC Well Dressed Blush- A lot pan showing on this finally. I feel like this is nearing the end. I can't wait to take it Back to MAC. This has been my main blush this month.

29. Ok so I'm doing it again! I'm sorry! I decided to take my L'Oreal Infalliable Eyeshadow in Iced Latte off because I sort of re-fell in love with it. It's my favorite inner corner highlight. I decided to replace it with this Ulta Merry Berry Lotion. It's pretty much brand spanking new but I don't like it so I want it GONE. It was full at the start of the month and now you can actually sort of see in the bottle.

30. Ulta Double Duty Concealer- I have used this almost every time I have used makeup this month but concealer does take awhile to finish up.

31. Maurices Excite Rollerball- I have used this month but I really wish it was gone. Maybe next month...

32.Stila Kitten Eyeshadow- There is some more pan showing but this is still going to take awhile.

And that is my update on everything! For my 5 beauty things I was allowed to purchase here is that list.
1.Bedhead Urban Anti-Dotes Resurrection Shampoo and Conditioner Duo
2. Olay Fresh Effects Set
3. Simple Skincare Set
4. NYX Stay Matte Not Flat Powder
5. Essence Gel Liner
6. Bastiste Dry Shampoo in Wild
I also got my Sigma Enlight palette and the "Wet" brush but those were both gifts. I did go over but that's because I am running low on stuff. I had no face cleanser or moisturizer so now I have both of those. I will do reviews on some of the stuff I got this month. I feel next month is going to be harder with me running low on hairspray and a few other things. I hope you guys enjoyed this update! Thanks for reading!

  1. great update! you are doing a fantastic job. I have so many body mists and perfumes to finish. I only finished 2 products in my project pan this month, but hopefully I can finish more soon. I did kinda pick products that were mainly full and some of them I had ones to finish before I could even start using those, but it is supposed to be a longterm thing for me so that's okay. I love seeing other people's progress though!

  2. Thanks! I watch JessicaMaykeup on youtube and she finishes a ton of products a month. I don't how she does it! It's hard when they are full products cuz they take longer to finish. It's encouraging to see other people's progress though or at least it is for me.

  3. great job on your progress! i love reading about your updates and i love watching jessicamaykeup on youtube too! good luck on the rest of your project! looking forward to reading your future updates!
