Project Pan 2018: Update #3

Project Pan Update #3

Yes, it is already time for my third update in this project, it is hard to believe that June was three months ago and now I am updating you again. As per usual with these types of posts, I am sure this is going to be a long one, so I would suggest grabbing a snack, a drink and settling in before starting this guy.


9. Perfume – Vanilla Bean Noel Body Mist 

I have Finally finished this one! I was so excited to finish because I wore this one non-stop for a while, meaning I am tired of smelling this one. So, at this point, I can’t say that I would ever purchase this again, not that the smell is bad it is just that I am tired of it.

Amount Started With: 85% Current Amount: – Finished

51. Something Orange – The Body Shop Energizing Face Mist 

I lost this one on my road trip, so I am counting it as finished then and I am still counting this one as finished.

Amount Started With: 100% Current Amount: Finished

38. Tarte Item – Tarte Frxxxtion Stick

I have started a second one of these but I don’t think I’m counting it in this project, so I am going to stick with this one is finished up.

Amount Started With: 100% Current Amount: Finished

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

I don’t know what happened here but I started using this one a month ago and finished it up in time, I love it and could not stop using it. This one was super moisturizing and smells really good, I have since started using another fragrance and I like it just as much.

Amount  Started With: 100% Current Amount: Finished

30. Nail Polish – Orly Nail Armor 

I think I am going to put this one back into the project pan ringer, mostly because I decluttered my first one and purchased it again because I remembered loving it and didn’t own one, so I am going to say that I’m going to try and use this one up, so back into the round up it goes.

Amount Started With: 85% Amount Left: 85%


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

I have used this a little bit more but not nearly enough and because of the packaging it is very hard to tell how much is left, but I don’t really think I’ve used up much more than the last update.

Amount Started With: 60% Amount Left: 40%

37. Maybelline Item – Baby Lips in Grape Vine 

I used this one up! This one was pretty simple to use up once I started going at it, it’s a really easy and flattering shade to wear, it’s very lightweight as well, the only thing is that I do not like the smell.

Amount Started With: 90% Amount Left: Finished

50. Mac Product – Pigment Mini in Kitchmas 

I am never going to use this up at this point, I don’t think I was ever going to finish this during this year, but I wanted to try and have not used it nearly enough so there is no way. I have used this more as of recently, but still not a lot.

Amount Started With: 100% Amount Left: 90%

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

I am so close to finishing this one but I am not there yet, I will for sure probably finish this before the month is over. I really like this and will be sad to see it go, but  I am glad to be using products up.

Amount Started With: 100% Amount Left: 20%

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

I have three months left in this project and I know for sure that I will not be finished, honestly, I’m thinking about decluttering it because I am not super into this lipstick, the color or the formula but I’m not sure about that yet.

Amount Started With: 100% Amount Left: 85%

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

I am done with this one as well, I used it some and then it all fell out onto the floor and I smooshed it, but either way it is gone and honestly I kind of miss it because it was a pretty and subtle color.

Amount Started With: 95% Amount Left: Finished

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

I am working on this still and I would say I’ve made any okay sized dent in it, but still have time to go. I am pretty confident that I could finish this by the end of the year so long as I actually focus on it.

Amount Started With: 100% Amount Left: 50%


28. Blush – W7 Candy Floss 

I have been using this more and I like it fine, though I haven’t used it nearly enough or made that much of progress on this one, I am not sure I will be finishing this one up by the end of the year.

Amount Started With: 100% Amount Left: 70%

46. Highlighter – Colourpop Smokin’ Whistles 

I am so delighted to share that I actually finished this one, it took a lot of effort but I got through it and I am excited to be rid of it. I really loved this highlighter, it’s blinding and a little goes a long way, but I have been using it almost exclusively for so long now that I am excited to be finished with it.

Amount Started With: 65% Amount Left: Finished

52. Setting Powder – Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder 

I just finished this one today, the day that I am writing it. I have been using this powder for a while and this was a mini size that has lasted me pretty much all year up until this point. I really liked this powder and would completely buy this one again.

Amount Started With: 80% Amount Left: Finished

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

I have been using this a lot more and I actually really like this. I’ve been using this so much that I have finally got a little dent in it, nothing to boast about too much but I don’t think I am that far from hitting pan. I am not sure that I will be able to finish this one before the year is over but I am going to try.

Amount Started With: 100% Amount Left: 60%

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

I haven’t used this, I keep forgetting that I have this and honestly do not use it. I don’t ever really remember to use single eyeshadow and it’s something that I really need to work on, either that or just declutter them. I doubt that I will make it through this one by the end of the year.

Amount Started With: 100% Amount Left: 90%


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

I have made a little bit of progress with this but not nearly as much as I might like, I am pretty much through three shades and have big dents in two or three of them, black and white still look pretty untouched but maybe I’ll get through them by the end of the year, which is approaching quicker than one might like.

Amount Started With: 70% I would estimate Amount Left: 50%

Palette Of The Year – Lorac Pro 3

I have done alright with this, I have hit pan on two shades I think and have dents in a couple others, there is no way that I will be finishing this one before the next project but I am going to try and see how far I can get with it.

I did add eighteen additional products to this pan, one of the things was the Lorac Pro 3 palette. The next thing was to use up eight candles, I have not kept good track of this but I do think I’ve probably used somewhere between three and five candles so I think I can actually crush this goal by the end of the year hands down, so I’m going to try and use some things up.

The next thing was to use nine lush products up, another thing that I didn’t keep good track of because I am terrible at that sort of thing. But I am confident that I have used at least nine different Lush bath products this year, if I haven’t then I for sure will, but I know I have because there is no way that I’ve used less.

I think this update has gone a lot better than the last one, I hadn’t used up very much when I updated back in June and this time I can say that I have used up eight products completely, I guess I haven’t really decluttered any so that leaves me with ten products left to finish up. I am not sure that I will get to use all of them up before it’s over but I am sure going to try.

Have you ever done a project pan before?
