2017 Spring Project Pan: Makeup & Skincare

I took a look at my makeup and skincare shelves yesterday and felt overwhelmed. In just over a year I’ve gone from a single half full makeup bag to an entire box full of beauty products. I decided okay, I’ve really got to work on using some of this stuff up! Enter my 2017 Spring Project Pan where I intend on “hitting pan” on all of these products within the next two months.

2017 Spring Project Pan


Arbonne Makeup Primer I’ve had this since way before I started my blog! I’m about 90% done the bottle.

e.l.f. Matte Lip Crayon in Catwalk Orange I don’t expect to completely use this up right away but I plan on making it one of my go to lipsticks for Spring!

Estee Lauder Sumptuous Knockout Mascara This is almost at expiry so I’ve got to use it up this month.

Giorgio Armani Eyeshadow Quad This was a christmas gift a few years ago. Giorgio Armani is quite expensive so I’m hesitant to use it up. The colours are gorgeous for spring though!

Sparkle & Shimmer Eyeshadow Quad I’ve been working on this since last year, clearly I haven’t done a very good job.

Pixi By Petra Blush & Highlight Powder Duo I received this from the March Ipsy Glam Bag last spring. I’ve got to use it more, I’ve accumulated so many blushes since then and they’re piling up!

Chloé Perfume Sample I got this sample from Sephora. The scent is light and subtle enough to be worn to work.

Pur~lisse Mango Lip Nourisher This is from October’s Ipsy Glam Bag! I have so many lip products so I really want to use this up before the expiry.

Crazy Rumors Hibiskiss Lip Balm This balm is tinted and contains just a tiny bit of shimmer. It’s a no fuss lip product that I want to commit to using more this season.

Nyx Brow Gel I use this almost daily so I shouldn’t have a problem using it up!

2017 Spring Project Pan


Borghese Fango Mud Mask This one use mask is from the February Look Fantastic Box.

The Body Shop British Rose Shower Gel Mini I love this scent! I got this mini and the next from The Body Shop’s Advent Calendar. I need to use up my mini so I can justify buying a full size of this shower gel.

The Body Shop Vanilla Chai Body Lotion Mini I’m trying to use more lotions this year. I love the vanilla chai scent and it lingers after applying.

Osea Atmosphere Protection Cream  This is from the 2016 Summer FabFitFun Box. It’s about 70% used up but I’m one of those people who needs to use every last drop!

Living Proof Dry Shampoo This came in the March 2016 Ipsy Glam Bag. I think I have only one use left in this bottle. It should be easy to finish!

Aromance Citrus Blossom Body Spray I don’t even know how long I’ve had this citrus spray. I’ve been using it daily for the past month and It’s still over half full!

GlamGlow Flashmud Brightening Treatment Another sample size. This came from the July 2016 Topbox. I can only use this once a week because the exfoliating granules are a bit harsh. I’ve already gotten four uses out of this little tube and I estimate I have enough product left for two more.

Verb Ghost Oil Another Ipsy Sample, are you surprised? This was included in November’s glam bag and I’ve been using it on the rare days I blow dry my hair.

Are you doing a Spring Project Pan!?

    OMG I love the Arbonne primer ❤️ I’ve recently done a full too – how are we all so obsessed with makeup 🙄 It’s just sooooo pretty 🤓

    I’ve been working on that Pixi blush forEVER…still no pan…just a dip lol. And I use it at least 3 times a week. I really need to start using up my makeup, too. It’s so hard! I’m good at using up my skin care.

    Good luck with your project pan! Are you going to do monthly updates?

      Oh man, I’m never gonna finish it! I’ve been using it maybe once a week and I know I’ve made progress but there’s a long way to go. You’re so much better at using things up than I am, 😄 I read your empties posts and I’m always so impressed lol I hadn’t thought about it, but maybe I should do updates!

      • April 6, 2017 / 9:07 pm

        I’m only good at using up skin care! And that’s only because I admitted I had a problem (buying so much stuff when half of it doesn’t get used!) and that I had better start using my stuff or no more buying it lol.

        I’d be curious to see an update in a month! It’s always interesting to see how fast a product goes down. Some seem to last forever while others can be done in no time.

        • April 7, 2017 / 7:55 pm

          I need to do that or stop subscribing to beauty boxes haha. I will write an update post then! Some things I know will go fast but the eyeshadows and the blush will probably take more than a month.

    I hope you hit pan with everything you want to! I love the idea of this, and I’ve been doing something similar with some of my products xxx

      Thanks for reading, I hope you can finish your products too! I’ve accumulated so much that I’m like okay, this is getting ridiculous 😄

        Omg, same! I’ve been slowly trying to finish things, but it’s so hard when I keep buying new things😂

    Nice products! I totally agree with you- ever since I started blogging I’ve accumulated WAY too much makeup. xo J

    • April 6, 2017 / 12:47 am

      Haha I blame it all on blogging! I definitely buy more than I should telling myself “it’s for the blog so its okay!”

      • April 8, 2017 / 3:17 pm

        Lol exactly. If only we got paid like youtubers do, then it would all be fine! Haha

      I like it a lot, it’s quick and easy to use when short on time! Thanks for reading! 😊
