Hello everyone! Today I’m doing an update on my Project Pan. I’ve been trying to finish or pan some of these items since the beginning of July, and I do a progress update every two months. I’m 2/3 of the way through this Project Pan, so read on to see how I did!
Urban Decay Naked Palette
So in this palette, I’m trying to completely use up Naked, and see baby pan on Virgin, Sin, and Buck. I’ve made some progress on the shade Naked since my last update, but I’m frustrated at how the edges of this shade refuse to be used up – Stashy says she’s having the same problem with the single of this shade! I was a little disappointed at first in how far along this palette got in two months, but two days before the month ended, this happened:
I saw baby pan on Sin! It’s a Halloween miracle! Panning Sin has renewed my interest in panning this palette, but I have a hard time believing that I’ll be able to pan Sin and Buck by the end of the year!
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Paaarty
I thought that I didn’t make any dent in this at all during the last two months, but comparing it to pictures from my last update, I actually did get quite a bit of use out of this. Even if I don’t completely clean out the pan by the end of the year, I think I’d be pretty proud of how much I used this up.
Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Liar
This lipstick sits on my desk at work so that I remember to use it. I didn’t use as much of this in the last two months as I had hoped, but I’m still fairly confident that I’ll be able to use it up by the end of the year.
Urban Decay 24/7 Dual Pencil Liner Perversion/Demolition
I’ve made a significant dent in this eyeliner, but I’ve decided to stop using Perversion because the core has completely separated from the casing, which means it’s dried out. I’ll continue using Demolition, and by the end of the year, I think it’s safe to say we can call this done.
Becca Back Light Priming Filter
I feel like I’ve barely used any of this up, although the bottle is slightly deceiving because the primer clings to the side of the bottle a little, so I think I’ve used more than what’s seen in photos. I had eliminated this from my makeup routine until early this month because my skin was freaking out and I was trying to use as few products on my face as possible, so that’s a contributing factor to this product getting used up slower.
Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Honeysuckle Body Spray
Unlike with the Becca Primer, it’s easy to tell how much I’ve used up on this body spray, and I’m quite happy with my progress on this one. I think I’m on track to have it finished by the end of the year!
Batiste Dry Shampoo
I only used this twice in the last two months, and it’s because I rarely go a day without showering – I just feel like dry shampoo doesn’t work on me. However, I feel like this is starting to feel a little empty, so maybe I’ll luck out and finish this by December.
Oribe Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse
I’ve done worse on this one than Batiste – I did not use it at all in September or October! I tend to wash my hair at night, and find that there’s no point in using this product to create volume in my hair when I’m just going to sleep on it. Not only that, but it doesn’t really give volume to my hair even when I use it during the day.
In my Project Pan, I said that I would finish 12 samples, or 2 per month, and I have finished zero! I came close to finishing two, but they didn’t quite make it in the nick of time. From July-October, I was supposed to use up 8 samples, but I’ve only used 2 – that’s a big fail right there!
Here is my progress in weight:
That is it for my most recent Project Pan update! What products are you currently trying to finish up?
