So I have been recently seeing some videos by Too Much Tash and Kelly Gooch doing a 13 by Halloween project pan collab. Okay, so I’m not cool enough to collab with them but I thought this was a great idea because I want to continue using up and really focus on products I love. I have chosen 13 products to attempt to hit pan or use up by October 31.
I think I will do a monthly update since these products are already on my rotation in my everyday makeup so I thought it made sense to put them in this project including a few skincare products.
First up is the base products. Now I am notorious for starting one product and then never finishing, hence this project pan so I chose quite a few. First is the CoverFX Perfect Setting Powder I have this for about a year and half now and it is a really good powder, it’s talc free so I find compared to lush emotional brilliance it doesn’t quite have the same setting power but it does the trick for the under the eye and I’d like to attempt to get it used up. Second is my newly introduced First Aid Beauty tinted moisturizer – this is such a fab product – pardon the pun. It’s dewy, light coverage and exactly what I was looking for in a tinted moisturizer. Since I have been using this religiously I decided to put it in the project to see if I can challenge myself to put a real dent in it. Next we have two concealers, the Nudestix concealer – this concealer is so close to being finished!! I do like this concealer a lot, but am undecided if I want to repurchase it. I have quite a few other concealers to get through before a repurchase comes along but I would like to get this one done because I’m just so close. The other is the Revlon YouthFX concealer. Since my Nudestix one is so close that it will be nice to have this one to focus on and use in conjunction with the Nudestix. Another Nudestix product I’ve chosen is the Tinted Blur stick – this might be a bit ambitious but I really enjoy this and for days when the tinted moisturizer is too much for the hot weather I know I will gravitate towards this.
Now for the cheek products, I chose Nudestix Nudies All Over Fave colour in bondie bae – again I have been on a cream product kick so I decided to put nudestix bondi bae in this project. It’s creamy, blendable and naturally warms up my fair skin without being overpowering. For a blush product I kept it tame and chose one, the Body Shop lip and cheek tint in the shade dusty rose. I really love the body shop’s cheek products and have been living for the dewy effect this tint leaves on my skin. I want to make a real dent in this one and see if I can use quite a bit up. I chose two highlighters which might be a bit ambitious of me but I don’t really have a set goal in mind I just want to get lots of use out of these two. First is Becca champagne pop. I know this isn’t something I will be hitting my pan on anytime soon but it’s something I have been using non stop and don’t see myself putting down for awhile. The next highlighter I’m choosing to ‘pan’ is the Lush feeling younger skin tint – is two highlight products too bold of a choice for this project? Possibly but I like to live on the edge. This is beautiful under foundation, mixed with moisturizer, on the collie bones it really has so many uses that I am hoping to use it up
Lips and eyes. First is a the Joe fresh mango lip balm. I don’t love putting lip products in projects because it just never goes well. However this is one that I have been using quite a lot, enough to track my progress on it! For eyes I chose one single shadow from Colourpop the shade Kathleenlights. I rather like this eyeshadow and because it’s going to be transitioning from summer to fall during this project I know I can make a dent in it (how many times can I say dent). It’s a really beautiful gold bronze and I’m excited to use it alot.
Onto the skincare. First up the Garnier 3 in 1 rose moisturizer. This is an interesting product because it claims to be a mask, day cream and night cream which I feel is a bit of a gimmick. But this is a nice cream and I would love to use up during the course of the project so I can finally try the summer Fridays jet lag mask! I’m also trying to use up my ordinary products and thought I would throw something in this project that I’m already consistent with which is The Ordinary hylaronic acid and b5 .This product does boot moisturizer in my skin if I use it consistently but I want to get the Glossier Super Bounce next so I am going to make a concerted effort to use this on the daily.
Finally a perfume. I really love the Karma scent from Lush, now they have a body lotion which is super exciting, so I want to put a dent in the Karma solid perfume. I never discuss perfume but I do really enjoy it and use perfume pretty much every day or night. This is an easy one to use and while the scent doesn’t last all day I love putting it on in the morning because it gives you that little boost of energy.
