Project Pan 2018

Untitled design

It is time for another project pan, at this point I think it is impossible for me to finish one project and not start another one, so since I just finished one last weekend it is time to start another one this weekend. This one is different than my past few as it is the first time I am doing one that I plan on doing all year, so this is my one and only project pan for the year, I really wanted to test it out and see how it went, so that’s why we are here. I have once again used the same roulette list and method as some of my past ones, which is here if you want to check it out. I am really excited about this so let’s just jump right on in.


9. Perfume – Vanilla Beat Noel Body Mist 

I don’t really have perfume so I figured I would throw a body mist in this project, it seems to be something that I do pretty frequently. I am really confident that I will be able to use this one up, even though it is fairly full. The only thing I’m concerned about is getting sick of this smell because that for sure can happen.

Amount Left: 85%

51. Something Orange – The Body Shop Energizing Face Mist 

I don’t own very man orange products, so while the product itself isn’t orange in this one, the packaging is, so that counts, right? I think so, which is why I am counting this as my orange item. I am really pumped to test this out, even though this is something that is fairly new to me.

Amount Left: 100%

38. Tarte Item – Tarte Frxxxtion Stick

This is a product that I love and I recently got two of them for Christmas so I decided it would be fun to throw one of these in here and try to use it up. I just don’t own a ton of Tarte products and really wasn’t sure what to pick for this one.

Amount Left: 100%

25. Something in a Stick/Tube – Skinfix Candy Cane Lip Balm

This might be the wrong season to pick this out but I really like peppermint, I really like keeping my lips moisturized and I have way too many lip balms at the moment so it is time to start working through them starting with this minty one.

Amount  Left: 100%

30. Nail Polish – Orly Nail Armor 

I knew there was no way that I could use up an entire nail color in a year, I switch it up far too much to be able to do that, so I decided to cheat a little and go with a nail base instead, which I think I can get through fairly easily. I like this pretty well, it used to be a favorite but now I just like it, I’ve decided to use it up as I have found something that I like a little bit better than this.

Amount Left: 85%


35. Non-Black Eyeliner – Stila Smudge Stick in Cobalt

This is returning, I know this has been in a past project before but I still have it and it is time for this one to go. I really like blue eyeliner sometimes but I’ve had this one a little while and I’d really love to be able to use it up before it get’s gross.

Amount Left: 60%

37. Maybelline Item – Baby Lips in Grape Vine 

I love love this shade, it’s the perfect slightly more berry than my lips shade, it’s super moisturizing and it’s really quick and simple to apply, but the smell is awful if you ask me. I really want to use this up just so I don’t have to smell it anymore and then find something that is similar in color.

Amount Left: 90%

50. Mac Product – Pigment Mini in Kitchmas 

Using up a full pigment seems really daunting, even though this is only a mini size, but it still seems tough. This is probably the hardest thing on this list but I really want to get through this one and see how long it takes to use up a pigment.

Amount Left: 100%

16. New Item in Your Collection – Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer Mini 

This is just a sample size but I have tons of primer samples that I really need to get through, so I figured I would start here. I really hadn’t heard anything about the primer, so I really picked this one at random, it’s a lot more liquidy than I thought it would be but we’ll give it a go and see what I think of this.

Amount Left: 100%

22. Something You Have Never Used –  Rimmel Kate Lipstick in 45

A full sized lipstick, this one will also be a bit of a challenge, but I really like this color and I think with this formula it will be pretty easy to get through in a year, we’ll have to wait and see how I do with this one.

Amount Left: 100%

18. Something Purple – Colourpop Creme Gel Liner in Cry Baby

Another color that I don’t have a lot of, but I do have a few things and this is the thing that I’ve decided to pick. I really love this shade of purple but this has been neglected in my collection for a little bit, so this was the perfect reason to really try this out and enjoy this.

Amount Left: 95%

3. Deluxe Sized Item – Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in Blushing Margarita

I have a ton of these little mini buxom products but I am perfectly okay with that as I really enjoy these, but I have a full size in this one and these are pretty easy to get through, so I figured I’d throw the mini in and see how long it takes me to get through it.

Amount Left: 100%


28. Blush – W7 Candy Floss 

This is probably going to be the hardest one, blush seems like a really hard thing to get through but I’m going to give it my best shot. This one is pretty new to me but I picked it honestly because the packaging is too bulky and I kind of hate having to store it. Plus this shade of pink seems like a good one to use all seasons.

Amount Left: 100%

46. Highlighter – Colourpop Smokin’ Whistles 

This was in my last project and it is coming back because as you can tell by its appearance, I did not finish it but I did get a dent in it. This one is a tough cookie but I am hoping to have it finished by the end of this year.

Amount Left: 65%

52. Setting Powder – Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder 

This is just a mini size so I assume this can’t take too long to use up, but we shall see about that. I am really loving this powder at the moment so I’m kind of sad at the idea of not having this but I have powders to use up and this is the first on my list.

Amount Left: 80%

11.  Something Hyped Up On Youtube – NYX HD Blush in Taupe 

I think this product has been hyped up many times by many people throughout the years, even with the formula change people still love it and I can understand why, this is a fantastic contour shade and it’s just perfect for lighter skin tones, which happens to be me.

Amount Left: 100%

31. Single Eyeshadow – Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in Birthday Cake

I think this shade will go really well with the palettes I have picked out and just with a lot of different looks, which is why I settled on using up this one. Colourpop is usually a hard one for me to get through, so we’ll see if I can make an entire single eyeshadow disappear over the next year.

Amount Left: 100%


14. Something You’ve Hit Pan On – Lorac Pro Matte Palette

This has been in a bunch of project pans now and while I have made some progress I still have a way to go, I have hit pan on two shades, completely used up one, have dips in three of the other shades and the other two shades have been barely touched, so I think with enough focus I can really make my way through this one, the black and white will be the real test though.

Amount Left: 70% I would estimate

Palette Of The Year – Lorac Pro 3

I have decided to add an additional 18 products to this list, the others you will learn about in just a minute but for right now we are talking about my palette of the year, while I already have a little palette in this project I still wanted to do a palette of the year and I decided to stick with Lorac all around. This palette is a really fantastic neutral palette, there are a couple shades that I think will be tricky but I think I can make some good progress in this over the next year, at the very least.

The next set of things that I will be doing is trying to use up eight candles, this shouldn’t be too hard but I wanted to put this one the list as I have a ton of candles and haven’t been able to purchase any new ones because I have loads of half burnt ones that I have been hoarding, so my goal is to get through some of those.

The next set of things are I want to use up nine lush bath products, which should be super duper easy, I should be able to knock this out over the next two or three months easy. I’ve just been hoarding way too much and I do love Lush, but I want to make sure to enjoy all of my products while they are fairly fresh, so I plan on really trying to get through my stash this year and enjoy the things that I have, then maybe go a little crazy during the holidays since I’ll have been using my stash up and will probably need some new bath products.

I plan to update the progress as I go and maybe talking a little bit about the products that I’m using up, we will see, I might not want to make these posts super long but then again, it’s me and they will all probably be pretty long like this one.

This is a pretty big challenge but at the same time I think I can really make some great progress, a year is a lot of time after all. In fact, I am so confident that I’ll be able to use up a few of these categories that I am already debating if I will replace certain items to further the challenge if that makes sense. I’m not sure about that yet, but we’ll see. This is the year of me sorting out my collection and using things up, so let’s see how far I can get in this project.

Are you doing a project pan this year?
