Project Pan


panning makeup

I see a lot of pan posting challenges on Instagram and in general, even though its only makeup, its impressive to see someone finishing up or hitting pan on a piece of makeup. Now I regularly hit pan on powder and finish up bottles of foundation but I currently only have one pan showing on all of the eyeshadows I own which got me pulling a few of my favourite pieces of makeup out to see how close they were to being finished. So here is a selection of products I would love to either finish or hit pan on by the end of the year!

If in doubt this combo is what I go for when I want a simple smoky matte eye! They have the biggest dips by far of any of the Makeup Geek shadowsI own and my other shadows in palettes too! I want to see some actual pan though so I’m going to try and increase how much I use these because I have neglected them a little recently with the introduction of my Kat Von D Shade and Light palette and Lorac Pro Palette!

I barely use my ABH contour kit but I reach for this or my Smashbox banana powder every morning and this one has slightly more use because its magnetic and comes with me if I’m staying away from home. I love this for setting my under eyes, it’s really brightening and smoothing and I can see a dip forming so I want to hit pan soon!

Another product I use consistently that I feel I don’t see any difference in no matter how much I use it! This is great for mornings I’m in a rush and even though the pencil is not as waxy as some others I have, I still get good pigment from it and Dark Brown is a perfect match for my brows. It seems to be never ending though no matter how much I use it so I definitely want to finish it this year!

This has become my absolute favourite lip product since I got it last year and I reach for it 9 times out of 10 when I’m doing my lips! It is the most perfect pink/mauve/nude shade and is my perfect my lips but better shade. You can see it’s had a good few sharpens too and I can only imagine there will be more to come! This will be repurchased as soon as I finish it!

My favourite lipstick to wear with Pillowtalk lip cheat is not Pillowtalk lipstick (I do like it but it’s a little overhyped) but Bitch Perfect which coincidentally I do not like on its own. This is my most used lipstick in my collection at the moment and I know that even if I finish it this year I will be repurchasing straight away because the lip combo is perfect!

I am not a fan of this palette in general – the eyeshadows don’t show up on me and I really have to dig around in the blushers to get pigment off them but I LOVE the bronze and glow. Now we all know I am a highlighter phobe so I will never hit pan on that (it’s beautiful though and I do use it very sparingly) but as you can see, bronze gets a lot of use from me and as the pan is not massive I can see myself hitting pan soon! When that time comes, I definitely think the Bronze and Glow palette will be worth the splurge!

So that’s what I’m currently “working” on! Do you have any tips for hitting pan? Have you got much pan in your collection?

  4. I haven't seen pan in any of my eyeshadows for absolutely ages, haha! Some of them may be getting too old already to use them! But I do regularly finish pressed powders, concealers, mascaras and brow products :) x

  6. So many Charlotte Tilbury picks! I'm also really insterested in seeing what the Pillowtalk lipliner and Bitch Perfect lipstick combo looks like. Do you have a photo in which you're wearing them? I've never tried CT and I recently found out that they were cruelty-free which has me super excited.

    I've never hit pan on anything and nothing is even showing a dip in them to show that they're on their way to being used up.

  10. The last time I hit pan on an eyeshadow was my Naked 1 palette, in which I hit pan on several shades. I'm glad I skipped on that CT palette because I never really find "one palette does it all for the face & eyes" type products work well. The quality isn't usually up to scratch compared to the full sized regular products xx

  13. This is such a good post, I think I've only ever hit pan on one product which was the NARS Laguna Bronzer, even that was only because part of it smashed!

  17. I have a list of products I want to use up and I won't let myself buy any new products until I've completely used some up! The last product I hit pan on was my naked palette, I've hit pan on 4 shades which I'm quite proud of haha! Love these types of posts, keep us updated! xx

    1. Ah that's amazing I'm so jealous! I have barely any self control but I've been doing better than normal on the not buying makeup front! Xx

  18. I tell myself that I really need to try finishing or hit pan on at least one of my makeup but I am so fickle and kept buying new stuff. Seriously I need to discipline myself.

  19. I feel the same about the Instant Look in a Palette, I feel like it would only work on really fair to light skin. Good luck with your project pan! Thank you for sharing, hope you're having a lovely weekend xxx

  21. I so really hit pan on products, as I always end up buying something new and forgetting about older products, which is such a shame! I need to try some Makeup Geek eyeshadow's, people always rave about them, and I love your shades here.

  24. Wow...you've set yourself some great challenges here. I am so impressed with how many things you've used more than just scratched the surface. Good luck with the lipstick...you've used so much. Its a shame about that palette though because its not exactly cheap xxx

  25. I really need to set up a project pan. In what is my 5th year of being a makeup addict i have hardly hit pan on products. I just bounce around between many things and like to keep mix things up on a daily basis so that usually results in me buying more then I am using up. After my recent collective haul I am back on a spending ban (while of course saving up for makeup as i always do) but i need to really set a goal for me to hit pan on a few items.

  26. I hit pan in a few eyeshadows, but I have had them for years and I don't think I am going to finish them anytime soon. They are all colorwd, so not my everyday colors. The only eyeshadow I ever finished was MAC Satin Taupe, but the replacement has barely a dent.
