Project Pan Update #1

I'm back with my first project pan update! Back in January I share some products that I wanted to use up in 2014, which you can read about here. Well, it's about time that I update you on my progress, and I though that I should add some new products into my project pan! I actually haven't purchased a single beauty item in 2014, besides boxes of hair dye. I'm pretty proud of myself!

Products that I've used up:

Boxx Cosmetics Bronzer in Kala
MAKE UP FOR EVER Pro Finish
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

Project Pan Update #1

What I have left: 

MAC Lustreglass in Star Nova - I haven't used much of this yet, I need to start reaching for it more!
Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer - Another one that I haven't used much of!
Sephora + Pantone Light Storm Liquid Shadow in Smoky Grape - I know that this one will take some time, and it's not a shade that I wear everyday.
Maybelline Master Shape Brow Pencil in Blonde - I wear this almost everyday, and it's almost completely gone.
OPI Charged Up Cherry - I've been using this as my pedicure shade, and I'm slowly working my way through it!
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser in Brightening - Love this as an undereye concealer!
Maybelline Fit Me Bronzer in Medium Bronze - I finished off my Boxx bronzer last month, so now I've been reaching for this one a lot more!

What I'm Adding:

Project Pan Update #1

MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Primer* - I only have about a third of this left, and I do quite like it. 

Benefit Girl Meets Pearl sample (reviewed here) - Since I used up Benefit's High Beam, I'm adding another liquid highlighter into my rotation. I really like adding this into my liquid foundation, it gives some life to a matte formula!

Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Liquid Foundation (reviewed here) - This has been my go-to foundation since I used up Estee Lauder's Double Wear. This formula from Benefit is lightweight and I think that it will work perfectly in the warmer months!

Stila Lipglaze in Dazzle Berry (reviewed here) - This is just a mini size, and it shouldn't take me too long to finish it up. I really like this formula from Stila, and this shimmery berry shade is really pretty!

Bobbi Brown Corrector

Bobbi Brown Corrector in Light Bisque (reviewed here) - This product is amazing, and I really don't want to use it up! But, I've hit major pan on this, and I shouldn't just hoard it, I should enjoy it!

The Body Shop Born Lippy Strawberry Lip Balm - I absolutely love these lip balm tubs from TBS, and I need to start working my way through my stash. I go through lip balm at an alarming rate, so it shouldn't be too hard for me to finish this off. 

Vichy Dermablend Ultra-Corrective Stick

Vichy Dermablend Ultra-Corrective Stick* (reviewed here) - I've been using this all over my face before using a more sheer coverage BB cream or foundation. This helps to give my skin a flawless finish, I absolutely love it! I don't have too much of it left, and it shouldn't take too long to use up.

Agadir Argan Oil Hair Treatment* (reviewed here) - I've been using this 3-4 times a week since October, and it's only now getting low! I absolutely love this stuff, but I do have other hair oils in my collection that I'll turn to afterwards.

Benefit Pinking of You

Benefit Full Finish Lipstick in Pinking of You - I've had this for a while, and it's such a beautiful colour that I should be wearing it a lot more often! I really like this formula from Benefit, but since it isn't sold at Sephora a lot of people don't know about it. I bought mine at Shoppers, and I recommend that you check them out! 

L'Occitane Almond Delicious Hand Cream* (reviewed here) - I absolutely love this scent & formula, but I like to try to stick to using one hand cream at a time (or else I'd never finish off any of them). So, this is my current go-to.

So there you have it, all of the products that I'm currently making my way through! Once I finish off a few more products I'll be back with another update. I'm going to China at the end of the month, and I will allow myself to purchase beauty products while I'm on holiday. Have you been doing a project pan this year, or have you done one in the past? What products are you currently trying to use up?

    1. I know, it's so tempting to keep switching between products, but this is the only way that I'll ever finish off anything!

  4. I've hit pan on my Bobbi Brown corrector as well and I'm so sad!! But I have so many other concealers that I should finish up as well before I spend the money on it again! Good job using all the stuff up!

  5. It's amazing how much progress you've made! I need to do an update too even though I haven't made nearly as much progress on using stuff up. I'm trying to use up my Stila eyeliners, and it's driving me crazy that I can't check and see how much is left since they don't roll back down once they are twisted up.

  10. Wow, I was looking at your dream lumi concealer, and I realized that I had made a big dent into mine! Makes sense, since I used it for a couple of months straight!

    1. Oh yay!! Ya, when you use things daily it's surprising how big of a dent you can put in them :)
