18 before 2018 – Update 2

Hey Everyone,

It’s been a long while since I updated my progress on my Project Pan. Sadly, I do not have much to report, and that is simply because I have not been wearing makeup, let alone the ones I was targeting.

Recently I have been feeling very flat and that is why I do not have any progress photos. I have made progress on some products though! Through work I have still been working on my lip balm collection and recently finished another Maybelline Baby lips. I have also been working on some of my nude lipsticks as I apply them when I leave for work in the morning.

I honestly feel that at the end of this year, some of these products I am just going to remove from my collection, I don’t use them or need them so why should I have them?

Hopefully as my mental health improves so does my enthusiasm in doing full-face of makeup! I do miss playing with makeup so I think that is a start, which I’m thankful for.

How have you been progressing with your project pans?

18 Before 2018 – Update 1

Hey Everyone!

The first month of this project pan is done and dusted! I am excited to see what progress I have made. Just as I was taking the photos for this post, I realised there were some products I have hardly touched, so during March I am going to make a bigger effort to use those products!

Lip Balms

I used up only 1 lip balm this month and I am still super happy about it, as it is still the start of down-sizing my collection. Something that bothered me though is I swear I found another 3-5 floating around. So hopefully I can really start to dent this collection.Wearing lip balm at work has really been helping, so hopefully I can add more used lip balms to the collection next month.

Finished: Maybelline Baby Lips – Watermelon

Foundations

I have almost finished up my NARS All Day Luminous foundation and I am so happy about that! By the end of next month I will easily have that finished and will be well onto my way on the next one. I am moving onto the Australis Stay Put Foundation to use for work.

Hand Cream

Another category that I used up a product in! I think the one I was using though had expired as it was not as nice as I remember it being when I first started using it. But either way it is finished! I am finding that I am quickly working out which hand creams I like, and which ones just don’t work for me.

Finished: Soap and Glory Hand Food

Mascara

I finished a mascara and straight up threw one out because I hated it. I finally tried the Rimmel London mascara that had argon oil in it and just HATED IT. I don’t have much trouble with mascaras, but this transfered on me, and it was not even a hot day. I have moved on to other mascaras and I find that I am really missing my Tarte Lights Camera Lashes mascara, so I might have to make a Tarte order to have it back in my life.

Finished: Tarte Lights Camera Lashes, Rimmel London

Jeffree Star Cosmetics – Redrum

I used this once this month, so there isn’t really much for me to comment on. Sorry!

Sample Lip Products

I have been wearing these, but so far have not really made a dent in them. It is a little hard when I am working most of the time, or just staying home. But if I am just out doing errands I will generally reach for one of these. I need to pick one to focus on and see how I go, but hopefully they will start to be finished up.

Femme Fatale Cosmetics – Secret Shiney and Fire Opal (samples)

Left – Starting point         Right – Current

I can’t really tell how much progress I have made with Fire Opal, but that is ok, but I don’t really think I used it much through Feb. Secret Shiney on the other hand is starting to look loved and that makes me so happy! I have used this a lot more then I thought I would and even included it in some future looks, which I think is what has helped the most in using up this product. Either way, it is so nice to be able to see how much of a pigment I have used!

Rimmel London Blush – Pink Rose

I honestly can’t really tell how much I have used, it sort of looks like that pattern is finally starting to go away. So I will take that as a win! I use this everyday I work and that has been the biggest help. I still love this blush and have no problems wearing it all the time!

Urban Decay Naked Palette

Now I remember mentioning in my original post, but I will again, saying that the picture on the left was older then what I had originally started with, but I don’t mind as it still shows just how much I have used. I am so proud of the progress I have made on this palette and continuing to do. I have now switched up what shadows I use for work so hopefully there is more evidence of use in the next update.

Models Prefer NUDE Palette

I’m gonna be honest. I have not used this palette, looked at this palette, or even thought of this palette. Again though, as I mentioned in my original post, I wont really be using this palette until I have worked through my Urban Decay Palette a bit more.

Lipsticks, Lip Liner and Eyeliner

Rimmel London Red Fever

Honestly have not worn this. I think if I have not touched this by next month I am going to de-clutter it. I have had it for so long and I am clearly just not reaching for it.

M.A.C Mystical Lipstick LE

I am surprised to see progress on this as I do not remember wearing it! Either way, it is nice to see some progress on it. Hopefully I can continue working on it throughout March!

M.A.C. Girl About Town Lipstick

I clearly haven’t worn this lately, but I still love this shade. Sadly, I am not as drawn to pink lipstick as I once was.

Estee Lauder Tea Rose Lipstick

I will be honest, I did wear this in Feb, but not nearly enough to make this much progress, I was out shopping and this wound up while still in the case and so smooshed itself into the lid. I have since cleaned it up, but I suppose this is more my starting point now.

Max Factor Rose Lipliner

I honestly thought I had made less progress than this! I am so excited to see that progress! I am finding that this is actually a really good lip liner. It does not take a lot of product to cover my lips and I am more then happy to wear this by itself.

Rimmel London Nude Eyeliner

The one product I am probably the least surprised to see progress on. I have been making such an effort to work through this and I am glad to see how much that is paying off! Hopefully I can make even more progress next month!

Kat Von D Ink Liner – Trooper

I did use this in Feb for a makeup look, I don’t know how I feel about the felt tip as it did feel like it was drying up on me. But that could have been because of how much shadow I was trying to layer this over. Even then, I am still not a fan of this liner but I want to get my moneys worth!

With that, it brings us to the end of my first update! I am so proud that I have actually made a dent in a few of these items. It gives me real hope that I will be able to work through these products and get rid of a lot by the end of the year!

If you are doing a project pan, I would love to hear about it!
