Project Pan Round 1 – Update #22

This week I have a finished product to show you and a product I decided to throw out, since I hadn’t used it and wasn’t going to because I’m afraid it’s been breeding bacteria and it wouldn’t be a good idea to use it. Let’s get to the update!

1- MAC Lipglass in Pink Lemonade: I  haven’t used this at all.

2 – MAC Plushglass in Bubble Tea: I haven’t used it.

3 – Contém 1g (brazilian brand) Lip Pencil in Pele Rosado (or Flesh Pink): I haven’t used it at all.

4 – MAC Lipstick in Please Me: I’ve been using it everyday, as you can see from the pictures, the plastic part is taller than the lipstick, which makes it kind of difficult to apply. I’ll keep using it until it’s completely flat, which probably won’t take long.

5 – Shiseido Sun Protection Eye Cream SPF 32: I’ve been using it everyday.

6 – Benefit Ooh La Lift: I’ve been using it everyday.

7 – Benefit Erase Paste in number 2 (medium): Finished it March 27th.

#7 Replacements: NARS radiant Creamy concealer in Honey and NYX HD Concealer in Light: The NARS one I’ve been using everyday and the NYX one was gone on the 19th! I completely used it up and I guess you can see the wand through the tube, which proves it was fully used. Dipping my concealer brush in the tube worked well and I only had a couple uses left of product and then it was gone. I’m so happy to have finished another product! Concerning the NARS concealer, I think I’ll stop using it for a while because there’s 2 concealer samples I’d like to finish up soon, since they’re not as sanitary or as well housed in the plastic pot as some other concealers. I won’t call it a #7 replacement replacement (meta replacement?), i’ll just call it product 17 I guess, so there’s no confusion. So, to sum it up, I finished the NYX concealer August 19th.

8 – Benefit Eyebrow Pencil in Medium:  Finished it May 9th.

9 – Benefit Eye Bright: Used it up April 11th.

10 – Benefit Porefessional: Used it up June 17th.

11 – NARS Orgasm blush: I’ve been using it constantly and was getting tired of the broken bits, it was so messy and the application wasn’t as nice so I repressed it today. I haven’t used it yet so I don’t know if it’s as good as before I repressed it. I’m so close to finishing it up, I can’t wait!

12 – Bare Minerals Original Foundation in Light (deluxe size): used it up March 21st.

 13 – Maybelline Great Lash mascara Lots of Lashes in brownish black: Finished it August 3rd.

14 – Shiseido Perfect Mascara: This is going in the trash with my NYX concealer today, so tossed it August 23rd.

15 – Maybelline The Colossal: I haven’t used it.

16 – Benefit Bad Gal mascara sample: Finished it April 24th.

17- Tarte concealer in light-medium (started using it on Week 23):

Project Pan Round 1 – Update #21

1- MAC Lipglass in Pink Lemonade: I  haven’t used this at all.

2 – MAC Plushglass in Bubble Tea: I haven’t used it.

3 – Contém 1g (brazilian brand) Lip Pencil in Pele Rosado (or Flesh Pink): I haven’t used it at all.

4 – MAC Lipstick in Please Me: I’ve been using it everyday, there’s some visible progress, I believe. I gotta be honest, I really want this lipstick to be gone. I just feel like changing it up a bit when it comes to lip products.

5 – Shiseido Sun Protection Eye Cream SPF 32: I’ve been using it everyday.

6 – Benefit Ooh La Lift: I’ve been using it everyday.

7 – Benefit Erase Paste in number 2 (medium): Finished it March 27th.

#7 Replacements: NARS radiant Creamy concealer in Honey and NYX HD Concealer in Light: I’ve been using both everyday. I was going to throw the NYX one out this week but there was a bit of product left but the actual wand wouldn’t reach that part so I had the brilliant idea today to but a small concealer brush inside the tube to reach the product out and it worked. I guess I have a couple more uses out of this concealer and then I’m calling it done!

8 – Benefit Eyebrow Pencil in Medium:  Finished it May 9th.

9 – Benefit Eye Bright: Used it up April 11th.

10 – Benefit Porefessional: Used it up June 17th.

11 – NARS Orgasm blush: I used it everyday this week. Funny (or tragic) story: I grabbed this to take a photo for the blog and when I opened it up it was all broken!! I don’t know what happened, if somebody came into my room and accidentally dropped it or what ’cause it was fine when I used it this morning, but that’s where we are with it. I’m heartbroken over it. I said I was gonna repress it but the last time I did that to a broken product it kinda ruined its pigmentation so I’m scared to do it with my favorite blush and not be able to use it up completely. I might just crush it and use it as a loose powder blush but I feel like I waste so much product that way… Any suggestions?

12 – Bare Minerals Original Foundation in Light (deluxe size): used it up March 21st.

 13 – Maybelline Great Lash mascara Lots of Lashes in brownish black: Finished it August 3rd.

14 – Shiseido Perfect Mascara: Haven’t used it.

15 – Maybelline The Colossal: I don’t think I’ve used it.

16 – Benefit Bad Gal mascara sample: Finished it April 24th.

The Project Pan Questionnaire

I decided to do this TAG that was created by Megan from megsmakeup8 on youtube. The questions are:

1: Why did you start Project Panning?

A: I felt like I had so much makeup and almost none of it was getting used, so I had to come up with a strategy to make myself use up some products.

2: What is the most rewarding part of Project Panning?

A: Finishing up a product, definitely!

3: What is the most challenging part of Project Panning?

A: Sticking to the same product day after day (for me it’s blush, even though I love the one I picked for round 1). I sometimes just wanna put something else on my face but I’m afraid that I’ll get off track with my Project Pan and it will take much longer to use up that product.

4: How many Project Pans have you done? Do you plan on doing more?

A: I’m currently on my first round of PP and I’ll definitely do some more – there are still A LOT of products to be used.

5: Are you also doing any other projects in addition to Project Pan? (i.e. Pan That Palette, Finish 5 By Fall, etc.)

A: Not officially, but I am trying to hit pan on a powder eyeshadow (2, to be exact) ’cause that will be a first for me.

6: Do you limit your spending or go on a No Buy while on Project Pan?

A: I’m technically on a No Buy, but that hasn’t gone too well for me, as you probably know.

7: Who are your favorite Project Panners to watch?

A: Megsmakeup8 (the creator of this tag – I absolutely LOVE her videos), PrettyPistol86 (such a gorgeous girl, she’s doing really well on her PP), MiuMiu G, who’s going through her non cruelty free items and plans to be almost 100% cruelty free by the beggining of 2015 I think, and Amber F. Amber F is project panning hyped up products on Youtube and was actually the one who inspired me to start blogging about project pan and her Pan that Palette challenge is awesome. You have to check out her progress on the Naked palette. It’s crazy. If you don’t know any of these women you should check ’em out!

8: What is your #1 tip for a successful Project Pan?

A: Keep everything in sight and make a point of using everything! Soon it will become routine and you won’t forget to use the selected products.

9: What is your goal for your makeup collection through Project Panning?

A: Using up some items, being more aware of expiration dates (trying to use up items before they go bad), thinking more about the way I spend my money when it comes to makeup (and everything else) – doing more research about products that I want to buy – and ultimately, have a smaller, more manageable makeup collection.

10: Which Project Panners do you tag to do this questionnaire next?

A: I’m not gonna tag anyone specifically but if you decide to do this tag, please let me know in the comments!

2 – MAC Plushglass in Bubble Tea: I haven’t used it.

3 – Contém 1g (brazilian brand) Lip Pencil in Pele Rosado (or Flesh Pink): I haven’t used it at all.

4 – MAC Lipstick in Please Me: I’ve been using it everyday, it’s getting hard to use since the bottom part is so indented. When I apply it, the bottom plastic thing hits my lips so I have to be careful when I’m putting it on.

(Sorry for the bad quality pics, I had to take them with my phone)

5 – Shiseido Sun Protection Eye Cream SPF 32: I’ve been using it everyday.

6 – Benefit Ooh La Lift: I’ve been using it everyday.

#7 Replacements: NARS radiant Creamy concealer in Honey and NYX HD Concealer in Light: I’ve been using both everyday, the NYX one is pretty much gone, but there’s still some product coming out. I’ll use it one more week to see if I can get everything out and then I’m tossing this.

8 – Benefit Eyebrow Pencil in Medium:  Finished it May 9th.

9 – Benefit Eye Bright: Used it up April 11th.

10 – Benefit Porefessional: Used it up June 17th.

11 – NARS Orgasm blush: I used it everyday this week. A big chunk of it got loose, so I crushed it, that’s why there’s so much loose powder.

My experience with Back 2 MAC (AKA how I managed to cheat again on my no buy)

So, this past weekend I went shopping with my mother and I had to stop by at the MAC counter to buy a new Fix+ since my ELF Mist and Set was pretty much gone (and I just can’t live without a makeup setting spray, since I use mostly powder foundation). I decided to bring along my 6 empty containers just in case they had Rebel lipstick in stock. This lipstick has been all the rage in Brazil this fall and winter since many famous actresses have been wearing it, so it had been out of stock for months in MAC‘s and Sephora‘s websites (our Sephora online sells MAC!) and the counter in my town.

 

I had left my phone number for them to call me when it got back in stock, but since they didn’t, I thought it hadn’t come back. So I went there, asked for my Fix+ and asked when was Rebel coming back to stock, and to my surprise, they had it in store. They said there were like 80 people that had asked for them to call when they had it back, so they hadn’t managed yet to call everybody (and 150 people waiting for Flat Out Fabulous! Can you believe it?). So I decided to try it on and it’s just as gorgeous as everybody says it is. I tried Diva as well, but since I already own a red lipstick, I decided to go with Rebel. So I gave them my 6 empties and got my free lippie! This is so amazing, specially because we have to pay 30 US dollars for a MAC lipstick in Brazil. And also I had heard that they put a mark on your lipstick tube so you wouldn’t be able to back 2 MAC the free lipstick, but I didn’t see them do any of that. Do you know it that’s true?

Anyways, here is the trash I left at the counter:

 

 

And here is the goooorgeous lipstick that came home with me:

 

 

It’s an amazing color, truly special since it sometimes looks red and sometimes purple. It leaves a stain on your lips when it wears off, and it’s hard to remove that stain from your lips.

I’m really glad I got it, since I had been wanting it ever since it started getting cold here. Now I have it!

So that’s the story of how I managed to break my no buy again… I’m so bad at this “not getting new makeup” thing. But I do feel like I do my research much better now, and I only buy things I know I’ll really use. That’s it for me. Sorry for the longest story ever.

What is your favorite MAC lipstick?

Project Pan Round 1 – Update #18 and #19

Since last week I didn’t use much makeup, there was nothing too exciting to update you on, so I decided to do a 2 week update this time.

1- MAC Lipglass in Pink Lemonade: I  haven’t used this at all.

2 – MAC Plushglass in Bubble Tea: I don’t think I used it.

3 – Contém 1g (brazilian brand) Lip Pencil in Pele Rosado (or Flesh Pink): I haven’t used it these past couple weeks.

4 – MAC Lipstick in Please Me: I’ve been using it often, I guess there’s visible progress.

5 – Shiseido Sun Protection Eye Cream SPF 32: I’ve been using it everyday.

6 – Benefit Ooh La Lift: I’ve been using it everyday.

7 – Benefit Erase Paste in number 2 (medium): Finished it March 27th.

#7 Replacements: NARS radiant Creamy concealer in Honey and NYX HD Concealer in Light: I’ve been using both everyday, the NYX one is pretty much gone, but I’m working a bit harder to get product out so I can say I used it until the very last drop.

8 – Benefit Eyebrow Pencil in Medium:  Finished it May 9th.

9 – Benefit Eye Bright: Used it up April 11th.

10 – Benefit Porefessional: Used it up June 17th.

11 – NARS Orgasm blush: I used it everyday this week. I’ll probably have to repress it soon, since it’s getting hard to get to the product.

12 – Bare Minerals Original Foundation in Light (deluxe size): used it up March 21st.

 13 – Maybelline Great Lash mascara Lots of Lashes in brownish black: I’m done with this mascara. It’s very old and it started to make my lashes clumpy. I’m just not sure if I should keep the wand or not, but I probably won’t ’cause I really need to do some decluttering in my life. So, finished it August 3rd.

14 – Shiseido Perfect Mascara: Haven’t used it.

15 – Maybelline The Colossal: I haven’t used it.

16 – Benefit Bad Gal mascara sample: Finished it April 24th.

If I keep using the NYX concealer everyday, next week it’ll definitely be gone. I’m really excited about that!

And also, I may or may not have cheated on my no buy again this week… There’ll be a post about it later this week…
