Project Pan Update #5

Hi! I'm sorry this update is a little late but I've been working a lot and of course I was yesterday so I couldn't work on this update. Anyways again not really a great month for Project Pan. I don't have a lot of empties but on the bright side almost everything has been used at least once. Let's go ahead and start with my non project pan empties.

First I finished another Smashbox PhotoFinish Primer. I will not repurchase this if you guys remember my last update. It just didn't think it did anything spectacular. I'm thinking about doing a post on all the primers I have tried.
Next I finished a of Batiste Wild Dry Shampoo. I love the scent of this one. I have a back up of this. I'm going to try to force myself to try some other ones so I can do a big review on dry shampoos.

I finished some shower gels this month. The first one I finished was gratis from work. It's the Philosophy Vanilla Birthday Cake. I loved the way this smelled. I actually used it as a shampoo once or twice too. It does get your hair clean but there is nothing special about it.

Next is my BBW Twilight Woods shower gel. I obviously love the way this smells but I don't need it so I might repurchase especially if they are on sale again but it's not a must have for me.

For my Project Pan empties I don't have a lot but the fact that I finished anything makes me happy. This month flew by and I have really been reaching for things I don't use very frequently. So here are my empties.

First I finished my BBW Midnight Pomegranate Body Mist. I love this scent but it's now discontinued. I think I'm going to get Forever Red as a replacement because it is somewhat similar. But I do love this one and am sort of sad it's discontinued.

I also finished my Big Sexy Hair Spray and Play Hairspray. I do like this hairspray but it is not my favorite so I think I will try some other ones.

Next I finished my big Twilight Woods spray. I wore this basically all month. I tried so hard to use it up and it is gone(: I already have a replacement but I don't think I'm going to wear it for awhile.

And lastly I know this isn't empty but I can't get the rollerball to work anymore. For some reason I roll it on my arm and nothing comes out. I tried for like 15 minutes and still no luck. So I'm tossing it. I hate to count it as an empty but I'm not really sure what else to do. It's off to the garbage.

And that is it for my empties so on to the update of everything else!

1. L'Oreal Lumi Foundation- As you can see this has been used a few times this month. I forgot to be mixing it with my foundation to make it go faster but it did get used a few times. I'm hoping a few more months and this will be gone. Sorry the last picture is blurry but I was trying to show it is now just below the yellow dots.

2.  Cover FX Powder- I have used this a lot this month as always. It is getting really hard to use because the product is all mostly on the side. I was hoping to have this gone by now but it's still going strong. Maybe next month.

3. MAC Angel Lipstick- I tried to use this more but I keep forgetting about it. I have so many lip products I have been reaching for stuff I haven't used in awhile. Maybe a little bit of noticeable progress. I'm going to try sticking this in my purse and maybe it will get used more.

4. ELF Blush and Bronzer Duo- I have used these both a few times. I'm not sure if you can see any progress. I have used the blush more than the bronzer again but I actually did use the bronzer this month. I'm not really liking the bronzer. It keeps applying sort of splotching on me lately.

5. Bare Mineral Buxom Lip Gloss in Princess- I did use this quite a few times but this is the gloss that won't run out. I do have to twist the cap down to reach the product so that is some progress. Hopefully it will be gone next month.

6. Sephora Shadow Pencil- I did use this quite a few times. I really think this will be easy to finish up. It's just a matter of using it all the time.

7. Sephora Flashy Liner Pencil- I did use this once or twice so a little progress. Having a hard time wanting to use this though lol.

8. MAC Yogurt Eyeshadow- I did use this a few times again but still not much progress. Still no pan showing or anything.

9. Bare Mineral Eyeshadow in Cocoa- I did use this a few times this month. Mostly as a crease color but still needs to be used more.

10. Bare Mineral Eyeshadow in Gold Dipped- Used once maybe twice this month.

11. Bare Mineral Eyeshadow in Sugar Plum- I used this this month with my Smashbox quad.

12. Bare Mineral Eyeshadow in Lemon Zinger- Used once.

13. Bare Mineral Eyeshadow in Cupcake- I did use this at least twice this month.

14. Bare Mineral Eyeshadow in Good Fortune- Used once this month.

15. Bare Mineral Eyeshadow in Champagne- Used once.

16. Bare Mineral Eyeshadow in Bon Bon- Used once.

17. Smashbox Burlesque Quad- I used all of these except the grey. Honestly if I finish all the eyeshadows except the grey cream shadow I'm ok with counting it as finished. I have slightly oily lids so cream shadows are not my friend.

18. Smashbox Burlesque Lip Gloss Duo- I have used this quite a few times but I don't think you can see the progress.

19. Smashbox Burlesque Shimmer- I did use this at least once. I keep forgetting to use it especially since I'm not a huge fan of like body glitters and shimmers.

20. Avon Brazil Beat- I did use this at least once so maybe as we get closer to spring I can convince myself to finish this up.

21. BBW Aromatherapy Stress Relief Lotion- I have used this a lot. My skin has been really dry. Sadly I'm not seeing a difference in my skin but at least it's getting used.

22. Big Sexy Hair Volumizing Blow Dry Gel- I have used this a TON but I feel like I see only a little progress so I'm a bit disappointed. Maybe because I'm down to the big part of the bottle and it takes more to see progress.

23. Revlon Colorstay Whipped- This did get used but not that much. I just seriously can't stand the chemical smell to it. It also just feels really thick.

24. Aveda Pure Abundance Spray- I have used this quite a bit this month but since the BSH Gel has been my main focus I have forgot to use this a few times.

25. MAC Well Dressed- I definitely am making good progress on this. I use it all the time. So much so I am sick of it lol. But I can't wait to take it back to MAC!

26. Ulta Merry Berry Lotion- This did get used a few times for little things like my hands or legs after a shower. But I'm not sure you can see a difference. The BBW lotion has been my main priority anyways.

27. Ulta Double Duty Concealer- I have used this a few times.

28. Stila Kitten Eyeshadow- I have used this a few more times this month as you can tell by the amount of pan showing. I'm starting to love this more and more as we head into spring.

And that is my update on everything so only 28 more products to go. My goal for next month is to finish 8 products so I have a nice even 20. Here is a list of the products I would like to be the 8 I finish by next update.
1. Cover FX Powder
2. MAC Angel Lipstick
3. Bare Mineral Buxom Lip Gloss in Princess
4. Sephora Shadow Pencil
5. Any Bare Mineral eyeshadow
6. Avon Brazil Beat
7. BBW Aromatherapy Lotion
8. Stila Kitten or MAC Well Dressed Blush

So I know I haven't done that before but I'm hoping that writing that list kind of commits me to trying harder to finish those products. And lastly did I buy more than my 5 allowed items? No I stayed under! Yay! Here is what I purchased.
1. Joico Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner Set(on sale at Ulta for $9.99!)
2. Mini Tarte BB Treatment Primer

And that is all I purchased this month with my own money(: I was really proud of myself as it was a difficult month. I have had strong shopping urges lol. Anyways I hope you guys enjoyed this update. I'm trying to pick a prize for myself if I can finish this through. I'm thinking maybe about signing up for something like Ipsy. Of course it will be just a treat to buy more than 5 makeup items in general once this is over lol. Anyways I hope you guys enjoyed this update and I'll have another one up in a month with hopefully even better progress! Thank you for reading!
