Project Pan Before Peru Pt. 2 – September Update

Project Pan Before Peru UpdateMy Peruvian adventure is drawing closer! Everyone at works keeps asking me, “are you excited?” The answer is YES, my excitement is hard to contain! Our last real vacation was over three years so a vacation is very necessary. I started this Project Pan series to help clear out my makeup drawer before leaving, so here’s my first update:

Project Pan Before Peru

 Remaining Products

Arbonne Bronzer & Ciate Bamboo Bronzer
The dip in the Arbonne pan has deepened slightly, nothing huge, but I like to see that I’m making progress. I wanted to hit pan on the Ciate bronzer but it hasn’t happened yet.

Pixi by Petra Rose Gold Blush + Highlight Duo
I’m hitting serious pan on this one! I just received a new Pixi blush from Ipsy so I’m even more eager to finish off this pan.

TreSemme Perfectly (Un)done Sea Salt Spray & Wave Creation Sea Foam
I haven’t used these much. I don’t know what I’m doing with my hair right now, it doesn’t want to retain colour and looks so dull right now. I’m thinking about going rose gold next, what do you guys think?

Project Pan Before Peru

Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara & Benefit They’re Real Eyelash Primer
think That I’m close to finishing the Benefit mascara and the Smashbox tube is feeling pretty light.

Becca Liquid Highlight mini in Opal
I’m sooo close, there’s just a little bit in the bottom! You can see the line near the bottom that I’ve finished up to.

Elizabeth Mott Color is Bae Lipstick
I have no Idea how close I am on this. The tube is opaque so it’s hard to tell. I won’t know it’s finished until it is.

e.l.f. exfoliating balm
This hasn’t happened yet. I’ve been using my DIY Coconut Vanilla Lip Scrub lately instead, it tastes a lot better!

Sephora Sunbleached Filter Eyeshadow Palette
I wanted to hit pan on a few more shades in this palette before we go. I hit pan on the shade Selfie this month and deepened the indent in Swell. By my next update I expect I will have hit pan on Desert Rose and possibly Secret Boudoir.

Final Thoughts

I really don’t have much left to pan here! I’m quite pleased with what I’ve managed to use up and confident that I can make considerable progress before my next and last project pan update before we hop on that plane next month!

What’s in your project pan right now?

    Wow great progress on the pan project so far! I’m so excited for you to go to Peru! I wish I could go >_< I'm currently trying to pan my Benefit Cheek Parade palette! It's massive, but I'm constantly using it so hopefully I'll hit pan on all of the bronzers/blushes soon!
