Rolling Project Pan – January Update

This is my first Update for my Project Pan. I have swapped some items that weren’t right for this time of year. I’ve decluttered some I was just not liking & I have finished some.


Contour:NYX Wonder Stick (not bothered with the lighter side) : Ongoing

Bronzer:Chanel Cream Bronzer : Ongoing

Powder:Laura Mercier Translucent Loose : Ongoing

Bronzer:Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer in light : Ongoing

Setting Spray :L’Oreal Infallible Fixing Mist : Ongoing – Half way through

Concealer :Clarin’s Instant Concealer : Ongoing – Nearly empty

Foundation: Lancome Teint Miracle : Swapped out as too dark for winter

Highlighter: Mary Lou Manizer : Swapped out until summer

Powder:NYX Matte Not Flat Pressed Powder : Decluttered, 4 years old and too cakey

Blush:Wet N Wild Berry Shimmer Blush : Decluttered over 4 years old and didn’t like it on

Primer:Smashbox Photo Finish & L’Oreal Lumi MagiqueBoth Empties

Replacing the Empties:

Primer:The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer & Seventeen Skin Wow 3 Way Highlighter

Foundation:Revlon Colortstay Normal / Dry in 180 Sand Beige. This is a lighter colour which is better for me at this time of year.

Highlighter : I have added two. The one from the NYX Contour & Highlight paletteis quite an icy white. The other is a tad warmer without being golden & is from the e.l.f. Highlighting palette.

Blush:Again I have chosen two. Both are from the In The Balm of Your Hand palette. I like to mix them together.

Powder : Also from the Nyx Highlight & Contour Palette I have a banana style powder & a regular face powder.

Contour: Also from the Nyx Highlight & Contour Palette. This is a great cool toned colour for under the cheeks & jaw.


Base:Maybelline Color Tattoo in Metallic Pomegranate & Rimmel Scandal Eyes in Queens of the Bronze age (just the bronze side) : Both ongoing – both nearly finished

Eyeliners:Inglot Black Gel Liner, NYC Bronze liner , NYX Dark Brown liner & NYX Wonder Pencil. : All still ongoing

Mascara:Maybelline Colossal Big Shot & Wet N Wild Mega length for bottom lashes. : Maybelline Finished , Wet n Wild ongoing

Brows:NYX Micro Brow Pencil & Essence Make me Brow: Ongoing – Brow mascara is getting dry so nearly finished

Sundries:Inglot Duraline & MAC Fix Plus : Ongoing – I expect Fix plus to be finished at next check in.

Eyeshadow:Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette & 4 shades from the Smashbox Shape Matters palette. :Only planned to use for the month


Sleek Eyeshdow Palettes : These are my oldest palettes in my collection. They are over 4 years old. I’m going to use them for the month of February  & try & get my monies worth before I delutter. I’d like to hit pan on a few if at all possible.


GOSH Length & Build Mascara: This is the next oldest mascara in my collection. This is how I am working through the bulk of my make up, oldest first.

So overall I have only 3 Empties but there are a few that I expect to be finished at my next update. I’ve also decluttered a few items that I am now convinced I don’t like & am glad that they are gone also.

  1. I also started doing these project pan plans every month in my daily makeup routine, because it really helps to use up product rather than just swapping makeup products every day and never actually using something up. Let’s hope we manage to do it well. xx
