Project pan is a series where we select a bunch of makeup products from our stash and try to finish it within contemplated time.
We all have cosmetics less than we want and more than we need. Often times, in this process of hoarding makeup, we neglect a lot of products and aren’t able to use them all fairly.
Hopefully, it inspires you as well to dig in your collection and use what you already have instead of buying every new stuff you find in the store.
I want to go through 18 this 2018 and will be doing it in parts.
Here, I will be introducing a small list of products I want to finish off or hit pan/goal on, by the end of May (I hope). I will be including all summer-friendly beauties and mini-reviews of them below. And will also try to write detailed reviews of some as I keep using them.
1. Clinique Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm – 01 Poppin’ Poppy
This is a beautiful, moisturizing lip balm/ tint which gives glossy coral lips. I’ve had it for a while but I don’t think I have used more than one-fourth of it. Beautiful summer shade, want to use it up soon to move on to other lip products. (The scratches on tube show how old it is)
2. L’Oréal Paris Lineur Intense eyeliner – Carbon Black :
I really like the tip of the liner but not a fan of its formula. It’s not opaque and you have to go over quite a few times to get that opacity. Smudges easily. I am halfway through it and want to use it up and throw away and never repurchase it in my life.
3. Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara :
This is a beautiful and affordable mascara which gives you those dramatic lashes. I really enjoy using it, gives my poker straight lashes an instant lift and length. I bought it recently, in January, and wish to finish it up soon before it crosses the 6-month deadline.
4. Sugar As Nude As It Gets SPF15 Compact Powder – 03 Macchiato :
Got it some 8-9 months ago and I enjoy using it. The powder is finely milled and offers sheer coverage. The design on the top hasn’t worn down even though I have used it quite a lot of times.Wishing to hit pan on this one.
5. Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer :
This is a good silicone based primer and really minimizes the appearance of pores. Got it a few months ago but I have used it twice or thrice. So I will try to get through it in this project pan, well at least half of it. (Don’t want to be overambitious)
6. Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil – 02 Hot Chocolate :
A dark brown eye pencil which stays put for a long time and looks very soft in the eyes as opposed to the harsh black kajal. I didn’t want to roll it all up because I was afraid I am going to knock it over. But I did and it went back in smoothly.
7. The Body Shop White Musk Libertine Eau De Toilette :
This has a light floral-musk scent and I have had this for a long time. There’s a small quantity left and I put it on this list intentionally for some motivation. I can see myself emptying it pretty soon. I hope you can see the product left, it’s along the “white musk” line.
8. PAC Lip Pencil LPL14 Mauve :
A beautiful mauve coloured lip pencil, creamy in texture and glides on smoothly. Not exactly an MLBB shade for me, but would be for people with fair-medium skin tones. I still enjoy using it, to overline my lips a little. Helps to prevent feathering. There’s quite a lot of product left, I haven’t sharpened it even once. Quite hopeful of finishing more than half of it.
I have attached images of the quantity left wherever I could, that’s where I will be starting from and will update you on my progress at the end of this edition.
