Because why not?

Project Pan - Round 1 Finale | Round 2 Intro

14 March 2016

More makeup empties!




Essence Match 2 Cover Concealer Duo - I enjoyed this for the most part, considering it's a $5 concealer it works quite well.

Aldi Solid Perfume in Poppy - Solid perfumes aren't my thing, I don't want to add an extra minute to my routine to ensure this is rubbed in properly and I'd prefer to just spritz a perfume and go. I won't be holding on to this one.

Gorgeous Cosmetics Lipstick in Sophia - I enjoyed the colour of this but the formula has a tendency to grab at dry areas on my lips so it's not one I'd repurchase.

MAC Eye Khol - Was using this as an eyeshadow base and it worked really well, glad to see it's finished finally. I'm not really one to use eye pencils so I can't say I'd repurchase it but I wouldn't rule it out completely.

Inglot AMC Shadow in #65 - I can't believe I hit pan on a black eyeshadow, I'm going to hold on to this because it is a fantastic formula.


Australis Paparazzi Perfect Blush in Poser - This makes a fantastic bronzer and I did enjoy it while I was using it but considering that there is 9 grams of product in the pan, it's very pigmented and I can only use it during the dead of summer when I'm super tanned, I have decided it's not smart for me to hold on to this, it will take me years and years to finish it.

Gorgeous Cosmetics Liquid Lips in Nude - Really enjoy this, it is a little sticky but I can deal with that. I reckon I have about another 3-4 months use in this but I'm going to set it aside for a little while and play with some other lip products.

Bare Minerals Prime Time Foundation Primer - I like this enough to keep it, I'm not so sure it does a whole lot for me but I'm not willing to chuck this out simply because it's not particularly cheap.

Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Barely Branded - I don't like these colour tattoos, I'm not even going to try to pretend with this, it's going in the bin.

I'm happy with how I went with my first round, I finished 9 items completely, decided 3 weren't going to work for me in the future and put 3 items back in my stash for future use.

My total for makeup used during this project is $164.25

Round Two is another mish-mash of products that I either want gone or want to establish whether or not I want to keep them in my stash.


Olay 30 Second Wrinkle Filler - This is one of the items that I want to decide if I'm keeping or not, I'm just going to use it as a primer, if it effectively deals with lines and wrinkles then I'll hold on to it.

Bare Minerals Bare Skin Foundation - This is rubbish but it's only half the size of a full bottle and I'd say it's about half done, since it is usable I'd be much happier if I actually finished it than just threw it in the bin. I'm hoping this will be done by the first update.

Designer Brands Extend A Brow - These are little coloured fibres for the brows, would just like to have a good go at this product and see how much I can use.

Beauty Blender Rea.Activate - This can be used to hydrate your beauty blender on the go or as a setting spray, it's my intention to try it out as a setting spray and if I hate it for that purpose I'll just use it to keep my beauty blender hydrated while applying my makeup.

Revlon Age Defying Concealer - I really like this but the colour is too dark for me, I can make it work right now because I'm quite tanned and can bronze myself almost to death. Since this is almost done I'd really like to make an effort to finish it off.

Boe Beauty Pressed Powder - I'm on a mission to use up some powders and I'm aiming my focus on my cheaper powders to start, I chose this one simply because it had a little less product than some of my other powders, I quite like this powder so I can't see myself having any issues using it.

The Yeon Style Y Liquid Blush in Smoothie Pink - Just want to see if this is something I can love or if it's time to move it on.

Maybelline Brow Drama Transparent Sculpting Gel - This is a great formula but the applicator is just stupid, I want to concentrate on this over the next few months and then get rid of it.

Giorgio Armani Armani Code - I have a little over half of this left, I don't expect to finish it but I'd love to see half of what I have left finished off by the end of the project.

Boe Professional Bronzer Duo in Glamazon - Would just like to see a nice dent in these, the colours are quite nice and I'm not in any rush to finish them off but if I managed to hit pan on either of them (which isn't completely unrealistic since they are only 2.5grams each), I'll consider them done and they can go back in my stash.

Rimmel Apocalips in Apocaliptic - I have 4 of these in my stash and I'd just like to work out whether I'm ever going to be able to make an effort to use them or if it's better to just get rid of them.



Limelily Pencil in Jet - I have a crap load of eye pencils and I never use them. This is me trying to use them.

Gorgeous Cosmetics Lip Liner in Manhattan - The GC lip liners last a hell of a long time so I doubt I'll finish this, just want to have a good go at it so it'll be a little easier to finish when I come back to it in the future.

Revlon Petal - Lipsticks are always hard for me to finish so I figured I'd pick an easy one and a tough one. Hopefully wearing this a few times a week with reapplication will have it out of my collection by the end of the project.

Estee Lauder Venetian Rose - This one I don't expect to finish, I simply want to make an effort to work on it so it's not so big when I come back to it later.

I'm glad to be concentrating on a new batch of products!
