My First 2019 Project Pan Update

Hey everyone! Don’t worry, I didn’t forget about my 2019 project pan. I meant to update you guys on how it was going a little sooner but then the months passed me by and it was already May. Almost half the year is gone!

I’ve committed to hitting pan on or finishing a ton of products, so if you want to see what they all looked like at the start of this year you can find that original Project Pan post Here. Let’s see how much progress I’ve made!

ABH Soft Glam | Pan that Palette

Pan that Palette Update #1

Um. So I have made next to no progress on my ABH Soft Glam palette. I’ve been reaching for so many other palettes lately and rotating them so often that I haven’t really focused on one in particular. I guess it’s good because it means that my other palettes aren’t being neglected. Still, I would like to focus on the Soft Glam palette a little more in the coming months.

Spring is such a great time for these warm orange & brown shades and the pinks are lovely when the flowers in the garden start to bloom. I’m going to try to use this palette at least once a week from now on in 2019!

ColourPop No Filter & MUR Fast Base Foundation | Project Pan

Makeup Update #1


Ok so the two foundations I’ve been trying to finish up are the Makeup Revolution Fast Base Stick Foundation and the ColourPop No Filter Foundation. I really need to get a move on with the ColourPop foundation because now that I’m spending time in the sun my skin is going to tan and this shade will be waaay too light for me.

I’ve been making progress on it though. I have just under half a bottle left! The MUR foundation hasn’t been going nearly as quickly. I’ve only recently started wearing foundation on a regular basis again. Winter left my skin in need of some foundation free days and now that it’s starting to return to normal I’ve been reaching for liquid foundations more. I’m hoping to start using this one again, at least twice a week!

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush & e.l.f. Baked Blush


There was a month where I used my e.l.f. Baked blush almost every day! I was getting some serious use out of it but then I feel back into old habits and started using the blushes in my face palettes instead. Unfortunately I haven’t made much progress on my Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush either. I can still see the print design as if it’s brand new!

Blush will definitely have to be a focus for me going forward.

Becca Sunlit Bronzer & ColourPop Bronzer - Project Pan


I did make a little bit of progress in the bronzer department. I’m not seeing pan on any of my compacts yet but I did have to repress my ColourPop Private Party Bronzer because it cracked and started breaking apart every time I used it. Even though I’m making progress on it I really don’t like the Private Party Bronzer. The shade is all wrong for me. It doesn’t make me look orange or anything like that but the shade also doesn’t make me look glowy or sunkissed. I wouldn’t be too upset if I didn’t finish it this year.

My mini Becca Sunlit Bronzer (from the Becca Prime, Bronze & Glow Kit) hasn’t been touched recently because it’s a little too dark for my skin tone. Once I get some sun I’m sure the shade will work out better for me and I’ll be using it all summer long.

ColourPop This Is For You & Becca Moonstone Highlighter - Project Pan


You can’t see any progress in my ColourPop This Is For You Highlighter Palette but I promise you, I’ve been using it! I’ve pulled it out for a few YouTube Videos and I’ve gotten into the habit of using it at least 3 times a week. The highlighter shades give a subtle glow for work and can be amped up with a wet brush.

I haven’t really pulled out my champagne pop highlighter at all. I repressed it recently and it’s still a little crumbly which makes it hard to apply sometimes. It’s a gorgeous, gorgeous shade so I definitely need to make it work for summer.

Nyx Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick


Well, I’ve sort of made progress on my project pan lipsticks in that I lost one of them. I can’t find my Tarte Lip Paint to save my life! Does that count as empty? xD

I’ve been wearing my Ciaté Liquid Velvet lipstick on and off but I haven’t finished it yet. It’s the same with my NYX Lip Lingerie Lipstick. I’m hoping I have a better update for you guys soon!

Proect Pan Bite Beauty Lip Care

Skincare Update #1

Okay, skincare is where we start to see some real empties & progress in my project pan. I don’t have much trouble using up skincare so I’m glad I included some products to make me feel like my 2019 project pan wasn’t a complete fail.

Lip Care

I “finished” my Hanalei lip treatment in that it was almost done, and then it went through the wash and was pretty much ruined. I think some water got in the tube and then it was just icky so I squeezed the last few drops out and am calling it a day.

I’m still working on my Bite Beauty Agave Kisses set. I realized that I was actually much closer to finishing up the products in my Fresh Beauty Lip Set so I started focusing on those products instead. The lip scrub is much nicer than the Bite one anyways!

Project Pan Hand & Body Creams

Hand & Body Creams

Ok so I completely finished my The Body Shop Mango Body Butter. It was a mini, but still! I was impressed with myself that I managed to finish it less than a year after buying because I’m notorious for forgetting to use body moisturizer. The Satsuma butter is next in line to be used up!

I’ve also been reaching for my Delectable Lemon hand cream from Cake Beauty. It lives on a little shelf beside my bed so I tend to use it in the evenings.

Fourth Ray Beauty Skin Hero Oil

Face & Body Oils

I completely finished the L’Occitane Almond Body oil. Yay! I discovered that I really like using it as a bath oil so I’m thinking about repurchasing a small size if I can find one. My Skin Hero Oil from Fourth Ray Beauty is close to the half way mark.

Are you doing a project pan for 2019?

Thank you so much for reading! Clearly I have a ways to go in my project panning but I’m looking forward to not buying anything new for the next few months (aside from a Boxycharm & FabFitFun box) and just focusing on these products. Share with my your project panning tips!

    I loooove reading these projects! Have you ever written a post about how you repress your makeup? I would love to check it out if you have. 🙂 Best of luck on panning all these items before 2020!!

      That’s good to hear! I haven’t no, maybe I will the next time I shatter an eyeshadow! I usually just put in a few drops of alcohol and then use something flat to press it down. It’s pretty messy but it works!

      • May 31, 2019 / 4:45 am

        That sounds so satisfying lol. Can’t wait to see your process if you do end up blogging about it. 🙂

    You should not feel bad for barely touching some project pan products because I’ve been doing the same! I’ve been rediscovering so many products once more so I’m having a ball rotating a bunch of them and trying all the new palettes I have. I swear I’m so behind! I still need to try two or three lol.
    Anyway I think skincare is definitely way easier to use up because that’s something you’ll use everyday, morning and/or night. Doing these project pans have made me realize how long it takes to finish certain products I need to get better about how I spend my money and on what lol
    I need to take some of your tips and force myself to use some of my products three times a week too. Even if I dont hit pan I will still be using it a lot right?

    • May 20, 2019 / 3:16 pm

      I’m honestly getting the the point where I just want to bin some of it haha. Like my ColourPop bronzer, I hate using it! The colour isn’t right for my skin tone.. but I committed to using it lol.
      Hey as long as you’re using your products I don’t think it matters too much if you’re rotating! Every week I seem to rediscover an old palette and then use it for a few days before moving on.

      Yes that’s true. I don’t really rotate my skincare either, I just use what I have until it’s empty so it goes fast.
      Good luck getting back on track with your project pan! I think even if you don’t hit pan it’s ok as long as you get some use out of the products 🙂

      • May 21, 2019 / 10:25 am

        LOL I feel like that too! At first you think you’ll really use some of the products but when the time actually comes you wonder why you ever added it right? XD
        I don’t think I’ll have a hard time with anything except for powders and palettes. Those are like bottomless pits no matter how many times you use it!

        • May 22, 2019 / 8:04 pm

          Powders last soo long! I only really hit pan on my eyeshadows when they’re something close to my skin tone, I use them to set my primer so they go fast. But everything else takes a million years lol

          • May 24, 2019 / 11:30 pm

            Oh yeah, I use those so much too! Those are the first to go for me which sucks haha
            I did hit pan on another shade in my Ulta Rose Gold palette. Super excited. I’m gonna try to keep using that palette until summer gets here and see if I can hit pan on one more shade. I doubt I will hit pan on the shimmers. Those look like they haven’t been used despite the fact that i use them a lot

          • May 29, 2019 / 9:00 pm

            That’s awesome!! I dream of the day I’ll hit pan on an eyeshadow lol I hope you can hit pan on a few more before Summer. Good luck!

          • May 30, 2019 / 9:08 am

            Thank you!!

    I love that NYX Lipstick. I just purchased that in the shade Kitten Heals.

    • May 20, 2019 / 3:30 pm

      That’s a great shade!

    Yay for finishing the body butter mini! One of the big tubs lasts me around three quarters of a year using it a few times a week 🙂

    • May 17, 2019 / 12:22 pm

      The full size ones take me so long! Hence I’ve been buying the minis instead, it’s much easier to finish before the expiry date 🙂

      • May 17, 2019 / 1:03 pm

        Body moisturisers etc. are one product I find I go through relatively quickly compared to anything else like makeup haha. You still get a good amount of use from the mini body butter and they’re good if you like to change scent regularly, you won’t get sick of using the same scent over and over x

        • May 20, 2019 / 3:33 pm

          I guess I need to use them more often lol
          Yes that’s true! I finished a mango one a little while ago and it was nice to try a different scent after.
