Project Pan Update #1

Lately I have been loving Project Pan posts! I have a big collection for someone who wears fairly neutral makeup everyday, and it seems to keep expanding and I never really finish anything. I have been a lot more dedicated to using up these products over the past few months and I've seen some real progress with some of them!

Rimmel Fix and Perfect Pro Primer (not cruelty-free)
This one is going to take a lot of work to finish up! I don't know if I can do it this year, especially because I just got a lot of new primers to try, but I've been using this one every other day and there is a lot left.

Physician's Formula Argan Wear BB Cream
I've been having to work harder to get product out of this tube, so I think I'm doing well with this one. It's not a super high-coverage formula so I use a lot each time I wear it, which definitely helps!

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (not CF)
I use this several times a week and every time I think I should take the stopper out, I seem to find more product. I think there's a lot gathered along the sides and the bottom so once I take the stopper out I will have even more uses out of it.

First post vs now

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder (not CF)
I use this literally every day and I don't think it's changed much from my first Project Pan...I know these are quite thin pans, so hopefully I will hit pan soon!

First post vs Now

Wet n' Wild Contour duo in Caramel Toffee
I've definitely made a dent in this affordable contour shade! Okay, at least part of that was due to accidentally scraping the lid against the product, but I've used it a lot, too. I'm hoping to hit pan on it by the next update.

First Post vs Now

Jelly Pong Pong Caribbean Sun duo in Aruba (not CF)
Here you can definitely see how much I've been using this bronzer! I hit pan on it at last.

First Post (top) vs Now (bottom)

Clinique Soft-Pressed Blush in Pink Blush (not CF)
This is the never ending blush, I swear. It was getting difficult to use so I repressed it into one-half of the pan.

First Post vs Now

Trestique Mini Highlighting Stick in Maldives Luminescence (not guaranteed CF)
I definitely think I've finished a part of this. I definitely use it enough! A few days ago I made markings on a sheet of paper for products like this so I will be able to see the progress I've made the next time around.

Colourpop Supershock Shadow in I Heart This
I don't use this as much as I should, but I try to use it as a topper for a lot of cool-toned looks. I took then vs now photos for it, but there's honestly no difference yet!

First Post (top) vs Now (bottom)

Urban Decay Naked Basics palette
I use Foxy and WOS just about every day to set my eyeshadow primer and highlight my brow bones, but I don't think I've made a dent! I'll keep trying, maybe I'll use these shadows for my crease and then put I Heart This all over the lid.

Maybelline Lasting Drama eyeliner in Soft Nude (not CF)
I've sharpened this at least twice since the last update; like the Trestique highlighter, I've marked this on paper so the progress will be more noticeable next time!

First Post vs Now

Physician's Formula Argan Wear Lip Oil
Last month I used nail polish to mark where I was at on this product, and I'm pleased to say I've used a lot of it! I apply it to my cuticles and lips mostly.

Rimmel x Kate Moss Nude lipstick in 45 (not CF)
I know this is such a wearable shade, but I haven't been reaching for it a lot! It's so hard to finish a lipstick, this one is definitely going to take a while. It also hasn't changed since the first post.

Bath and Body Works Sensual Amber Perfume (not officially CF)
I've made a nail polish mark on this as well, and I don't think it's changed at all. I usually just spray this on my wrists because I don't like it enough to spray all over my clothes. There's such a small amount left, I really need to use it every day!

Calgon Hawaiian Ginger Body Mist (not CF)
Another one I need to concentrate on more...the polish mark will really help me out next time!


Tarte Lights Camera Lashes mascara
I bought this at the last 21 Days of Beauty sale at Ulta, so it was definitely time to get rid of it! I summed up my thoughts on this in my Empties post. I've decided not to add in a new mascara because I'm pretty good about finishing them regardless of whether or not they're in my Project Pan.

Hanalei lip treatment
I finished this up relatively quickly! I have perpetually dry lips and I reached for this a lot. I like the formula, but the vanilla scent is a bit strong for me. I think the Glossier Balmdotcom line is really similar, but cheaper! I love the coconut one.

Bath and Body Works Mango Mandarin body lotion (not officially CF)
Since putting this in my Project Pan, I've been moisturizing my body every day! I always forgot to before, so I was surprised at how fast I finished this. I like the citrus scent in general but I don't think I'd repurchase it any time soon.

Add ins:

L'Oreal Color Riche lip liner (not CF)
Am I the only one who never uses a lip liner? I've had this in my collection for years and never reach for it until now. I decided to add it in and use it to redraw in my lips after I apply my foundation--much as I try to avoid my mouth, I end up covering my real lip line somehow!

Rimmel Stay Glossy lipgloss (not CF)
I have a lipstick in my Project Pan already, so I figured I'd need a lip gloss, too. This one is nearly done with and it's been my go-to if I want a glossy lip.

Strawberry Chapstick (not CF)
I'm swapping this in for the Hanalei lip treatment that I finished last month.

Bath and Body Works Vanilla Bean Noel body lotion (not officially CF)
This Christmassy scent is the perfect replacement for the Mango Mandarin lotion!

My next update will likely be in November or December--let's hope I finish up some more of these!

Have you finished any products lately?

  1. Great post! I use the Rimmel powder almost every day, it's very good :)

  2. I haven't finished anything lately but I did a lipstick decluttering today and I threw away some really old lipsticks I didn't like (and making space for some new ones haha)!!


  3. You've been making some great progress. I'm sure it feels good to see progress.

  4. I really like that Trestique highlighter and wear it for my no makeup days. I still have lots of it even though I use it almost everyday!
