Spring Beauty Project Pan Update | 2018

Spring Beauty Project Pan 2018Last month I realized that I really needed to use up some of my products. I do use up a lot of skincare, but makeup has especially started to build up. I love trying new products but I can’t justify buying new ones when I don’t finish the old. Here’s my first update to this Spring 2018 Project Pan.

Spring Beauty Project Pan 2018

Project Pan | Makeup

Elf Blushing Beauty Eyeshadow Quad I meant to use this more this month but I barely reached for it. I need to make it a conscious decision next month.

L’Oreal Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara I seem to be able to use mascara without it drying up longer than the average person. Mascara can last me over a year, though I know there’s a six month best before date. This mascara still has a ways to go.

Urban Decay Primer Potion I’m so close on this one! There’s just a small amount left in the tube, I think by this time next month it will be in my empties.

ColourPop Precision Brow Pencil I keep thinking I’m at the end of this pencil but more product always seems to come out. Hopefully I’m nearing the end… Reviewed Here.

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner Eyeliners last me for months, this one isn’t dried up yet.

The Body Shop Eye Definer Pencil I decided to bin this finally. I used it twice last month but I couldn’t bring myself to use it any more. I rarely reach for pencil eyeliners.

Project Pan Makeup 2018

ColourPop No Filter Concealer 

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation I have maybe a 1/4 of a bottle left. I’ve gotta finish it up now that I’ve ordered CP’s No Filter Foundation! Reviewed Here.

Maybelline Master Camo Color Correcting Palette I took this on vacation which helped me make the indent deeper in a few pans. Reviewed Here.

Arbonne Bronzer Bronzers last me forever! This one was in last Spring’s Project pan. Luckily I’ve finally managed to hit a good amount of pan.

Spring Beauty Project Pan - Lips

Bare Minerals Gen Nude Lipstick Samples x3 I’ve been using xoxo a lot this month. I think the sample pot is about halfway to empty.

The Body Shop Lip Liner Still going. I use this almost every single time that I wear lipstick and it’s taking forever still.

Trust Fund Beauty Lip Gloss I have about 1/4 of a tube left.

Project Pan Skincare

Project Pan | Skincare & Haircare

The Body Shop Strawberry Body Butter

L’Oreal Eye Defence Cream

Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil

Origins Original Skin Mask Mini I have about one use left in this mask. The next time I take a bubble bath it will be finished!

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Moisturizer with SPF 15 I am so so close with this moisturizer! It’s starting to get hard to dispense with the pump so I’m thinking I have a few days left in it max.

Filorga Meso Mask Mini Not going to lie, I completely forgot about this mask.

Project Pan Haircare

Stemulations Microdermabrasion Scrub

TresEmme Wave Creation Foam & Spray I used the spray a few times, I’m getting closer.

The Body Shop Banana Shampoo I have probably a month left in this shampoo.

Are you doing a project pan this spring/summer?

Hopefully I can finish a few more products for my next update! I hope you guys enjoy this series. Thanks for reading, remember to like & subscribe <3

    You have definitely made some progress! I love the Stila liquid eyeliner. Also, I used to think the mascara guideline was 6 months too, but apparently they’ve dropped it down to 3 months now! Jesus. Definitely never buying a high end mascara now!

      whaaaat three months? Well I should throw out my entire mascara stash then! xD

      • July 12, 2018 / 5:00 pm

        Haha I know I was scandalized too when I was informed by a Shoppers employee.

    Did you use up the Colourpop concealer? Mine is just not working for me anymore! It wonโ€™t stick to my skin and itโ€™s so patchy! It looks terrible! I thought maybe it was drying my under eyes out… Did you have any problems with it?

    • AlwaysCleia
      June 28, 2018 / 1:43 am

      I finished it up pretty recently, I did really like it at first but I would notice that the lines under my eyes looked terrible if I used it as an undereye concealer. I love it for spot concealing though, but I don’t know if I’ll replace it.

      • June 28, 2018 / 3:22 pm

        I agree about the spot concealing. Iโ€™m not going to replace mine either. They need to make a product for us dry skinned ladies!

        • AlwaysCleia
          June 29, 2018 / 11:24 am

          Agreed! If Maybelline can have a dewy and a matte fit me foundation I’m sure Colour pop could make a hydrating version!

          • June 30, 2018 / 10:44 am

            Exactly!! Fingers crossed theyโ€™ll come out with it soon!

    I really need to try and use up some of my makeup! I keep buying new things so that makes it difficult! ๐Ÿ˜‚

    • AlwaysCleia
      June 28, 2018 / 1:45 am

      lol! I’ve put myself on a no buy again. I keep failing at them but now I’ve cancelled all my makeup subscriptions for now so my collection stops piling up! I’ll probably wait and splurge on fall releases =D

        I’ve lasted about 2 weeks and thats it for my no buy. It’s actually sad. ๐Ÿ˜‚

          June 30, 2018 / 5:31 pm

          Haha thats longer than I usually make it ๐Ÿ˜… We’re planning on buying a house soon so I have to scale back my spending

            Oooh, yeah! At least its a good reason to be saving money!

  4. June 27, 2018 / 5:17 pm

    Mascara lasts you a YEAR?!! I toss mine out after 2 months typically. I just don’t like the consistency after that… plus I like trying new mascaras all the time. ๐Ÿ˜›
    Good job finishing off a bunch of stuff! I tend to finish off body lotion and hair care stuff super quickly. I’m impressed you managed to hit pan on a bronzer – I’ve never ever hit pan on one myself… yet I keep buying them!

    • AlwaysCleia
      June 28, 2018 / 1:47 am

      haha I don’t know why, but it’s true! I can use one bottle forever. I like the consistency better when a bottle is more dry, I don’t know if it’s just my eyelashes but fresh wet formulas get really clumpy and messy on me after two coats :S
      I’ve been working on that bronzer for a long time, it’s probably the oldest product in my makeup collection xD It was actually in last springs project pan too and I only hit pan recently!

  5. June 27, 2018 / 7:16 am

    You’re making some good progress! I have banned myself from buying any foundations until I finish the three that I have, but I need so little it takes me forever!

      haha It takes me so long to use up foundations! I’m almost finished my two bottles but I alternate between them so much that it seems like they’ll never end. Thanks for reading!

  6. June 26, 2018 / 12:26 pm

    Good job on your project pan! You chose some pretty difficult things to pan – blushes, eyeliners, lipsticks (even samples, haha) and bronzers typically take a long time to get through, so well done!

    I can’t believe mascara lasts up to a year for you. For me, they are typically too dry to use by the 3-4 month mark. Lucky because that means you spend less money on mascaras, haha!

    • AlwaysCleia
      June 26, 2018 / 5:14 pm

      Haha it’s cause I have such a build up of those products I need to clear some room!

      I feel like I’m doing something wrong when I use my mascara, a tube lasts me forever!! Maybe because I only use one to two coats? I also find that when my mascara dries out a bit it applies nicer, it’s easier to keep my lashes separated than with a wet formula ๐Ÿค”

      • June 26, 2018 / 8:10 pm

        I get it! It’s the stuff that takes forever to finish that you somehow end up collecting the most of!

        I only use one/two coats too, so I have no idea what I’m doing wrong, haha. I absolutely agree that dry mascara works better! But after the 3 or 4 month mark, it gets TOO dry and starts not working well again.

          New here. Sorry to just jump in on your convo but I got a little hack that I learned from reading another blog RE reviving mascara. You may already know this but just in case you donโ€™t, here it goesโ€ฆ when your mascara is too dry put a few drops of contact solution in it. Has worked like a charm for me. Since I donโ€™t wear makeup everyday, my mascara would dry out in no time. I hated having to throw it away. For the most part it would only be maybe 2 months old only having used it 3-5 times. Throwing $$ down the drain just isnโ€™t my thing, lol. Hope this tidbit helpsโ€ฆ

            All good! I think I have heard that before, I’ll have to try it once my mascara dries up! Such a money saver for sure. Thanks for the tip! ๐Ÿ™‚

        • AlwaysCleia
          June 28, 2018 / 1:53 am

          I need to go on a no buy and stop buying new makeup lol Then maybe I’ll finish some of these blushes and bronzers!

          Hmmm… Maybe my Lash paradise mascara is just magical!

  7. June 26, 2018 / 10:43 am

    I love this! Though I have to say I think this is why I fail at make-up blogging. I use the same products over and over again and don’t branch out. I am much more apt to buy body products like lotions and gels then I am make-up. That said I do get a lot of freebies, that I try to use up or save for when I am traveling. But because I live in such a small space, I do try to limit that (it could get overwhelming if I didn’t!) I can’t wait to see how this project turns out. <3

      Thank you! I’m the opposite I love changing things up! I get bored using the same shades/products everyday but sometimes I have to force myself to use things up ๐Ÿ˜„
      I always get sucked into buying more shower gels/bath things, I have a huge basket to use up ๐Ÿ˜‚
      Thanks for reading!

    I really struggle to use up makeup – other than mascara, eyeliner and eyebrow pencil. I have an obssession with buying eyeshadow palettes. A project pan sounds like a good idea ๐Ÿ™‚

      I’m so sorry I missed this comment, it got filtered to spam for some reason ๐Ÿ™ Should be fixed now!
      I have waaaay too many palettes now but they always catch my eye in store. This project is really helping me stick to what I already have!

  9. June 26, 2018 / 9:19 am

    I need to do a project pan for my makeup b/c like you it’s easy to use up skincare products, but I have a lot of makeup ๐Ÿ˜…

    • AlwaysCleia
      June 26, 2018 / 5:08 pm

      Yeah skincare goes so fast! I try to buy makeup minis now if I want anything, otherwise I never finish them ๐Ÿ˜„
