Project Pan Update no 2

This is my Second Update for my Project Pan. I’m coming to the realization that this isn’t as easy as I thought it would be. I need to amend my expectations and be happy if I pan at least 2 items per month.


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 : 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 Both still ongoing

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

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. The darker of the two has been put away until next winter.

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 Empty

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 Empty, Wet n Wild Empty

Brows:NYX Micro Brow Pencil & Essence Make me Brow: Empty

Sundries:Inglot Duraline & MAC Fix Plus : Ongoing

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


Liner: Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk – Empty

Lipstick: Rimmel Lasting Finish Color Rush in Red –Decluttered

Gloss: Wet N Wild Megaslicks Lip Gloss in Rasp-Berry Voice – Ongoing

Lip Balm: Dr Paw Paw Tinted Red –Decluttered



Sleek Eyeshdow Palettes : These are my oldest palettes in my collection. They are over 4 years old. I’ve hit pan on two shades. I’ve come to realise that there are only 2-3 shades in each palette that I really like. Not enough to keep them for and they are nigh impossible to remove from the palettes as they are in too deep.

This month I’m focusing on my Too Faced Chocolate and Semi Sweet Palettes. I depotted them a while back ( badly) and then dropped this on the ground!! So I want to use as much as I can and then at the end of the month I might throw away the shades that are crumbling.


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. –Empty

Wet n Wild Max Volume Mascara

Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara

Essence 16 hr Concealer

Bourjois Lipliner in Chaud

Essence I Love Colour Intensifying Eyeshadow Base

L’Oreal Brow Artist Pumper Brow Mascara

Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Creamy Beige

So I am up to 10 Empties so far and I have a few that are 1/2 to 3/4’s the way through so should have a few more for next months update.
