Okay! So one of my 2015 resolutions was to participate in a project pan, and I’ve been working on picking out my items.
I’ve finally chosen my items, so the beginning of Project Pan has started! The reason I’m doing this is because I do think that as a beauty blogger, it’s really easy to start obtaining way too many products in a really short time period. All of the things above were purchased within the time my blog started. I’ve already started to make a point of using the products I’ve picked out – hopefully I won’t get tired of using them! I already know that when I run out of one of those lip products, I’m going to pick up a darker color because I love love dark lips, but for some reason I chose not to include one in this first round. Anyways, descriptions and usage is next!
1. NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien
Amount left: 60%
I absolutely love this color. It’s one of my favorite NARS pencils, and I’m definitely excited that Sephora’s birthday gift includes a mini of this. Because I’m about to get a double, I want to finish this by April. I probably should have put an unsharpened NARS pencil for scale, but I think I’ve sharpened this pencil two or three times.
2. Bite Beauty High Pigment Lip Pencil in Rhubarb – Mini
Amount left: 95%
This is one of those products that Bite pushes on everyone and puts in everything. I like it as a neutral color, and I’m hoping to get through this within a few months because of how often it pops up in sets.
3. Rouge Bunny Rouge Original Skin Blush in Delicata
Amount left: 80%
This is my favorite blush ever. I absolutely love it, and it kind of pains me to be adding a favorite into my project pan. NARS Douceur is pretty much the same shade, and I’ve asked Christine from Hello Waffle to make me a custom dupe of it. Hopefully she’ll get it really close, and I’ll be able to only pay her price instead of the high end price. You can find my review of it here.
4. Tarte Colored Clay CC Under Eye Corrector in Light/Medium
Amount left: 50%
This has become one of my daily products, and I’ve already hit pan on it. I’d like to finish it up, and I have another product that I’m going to use when this one runs out.
5. NARS Light Reflecting Loose Translucent Powder
Amount left: 30%
I’m actually pretty impressed that I am running out of this. I have so many loose setting powders that I’d like to go through, and I’m really focused on using one at a time. I bought this a really long time ago, so ont he plus side, it lasts over a year. When I run out of this one, it probably will get replaced with another loose powder, but I don’t expect to finish two in 2015.
6. Dior Diorskin Nude BB Cream in 01 Light
Amount left: 30-40% maybe? It’s hard to tell with the packaging.
This foundation is a pretty good match for me, just a slight bit too pink. I’m definitely a person with more than one foundation or base product, so I’d like to get through a few of those this year.
7. Guerlain Meteorites Pearls
Amount left: 80%
I’m actually guessing how much is left – I’ve had it for about a year and I’ve hardly made a dent. I haven’t used it daily, but I love Guerlain’s products because they smell so fancy! While I’ll be sad when it runs out, I’m pretty sure that I bought it for the packaging which I’ll try to avoid doing this year. Plus I have a few Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders that I can use as replacements for this (and Fyrinnae’s Hollywood Sorcery).
8. Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Liner Pencil in Brown(out) – Mini
Amount Left: 100%
I’ve been sitting on this eye liner since it was a points reward. I’m not a huge fan of Marc Jacobs’ eyeliners, or his makeup line, really, so I think it’s one of those products I probably shouldn’t have gotten as a reward. I’ve already seen the bullet fall out, so I think it’s about time to start using it up.
9. Buxom Full On Lipstick in Acapulco – Mini
Amount left: 90%
This came in the Sephora Give Me More Lip set for 2014. I actually really like this lipstick. It’s a bit minty which I’m not a fan of, which I think is part of Buxom’s attempt to add lip plumping products in everything. It’s not a huge amount of product – I think the Bite mini has about the same – so hopefully it won’t take too long to finish. When this is complete, I’m planning on replacing it with a lip gloss.
10. MAC Eyeshadow Refill Pan in Brule
Amount left: 60%
I think it’s slightly cheating to choose an eyeshadow that I use as a base and blending shade, but considering I’ve never completely finished an eyeshadow I’d like to try it with this product. I know that I’ll use it, I can’t get tired of it, and when I run out I have an Inglot replacement that I’ll be able to use.
Wish me luck! Hopefully this won’t be too hard to stick to – and hopefully I’ll be able to double my items by the end of 2015.
