13 by Halloween Project Pan finale

Ah yes the 13 by Halloween project pan finale! I’m happy to say this has been a successful project. I want to say in advance I took these pictures in darker lighting since it was a rainy day and gets dark early, but I try to capture the progress. I have also switched computers and still need to get Photoshop so alas the newest photos might appear a bit more cooler toned than previous updates. In any case, I hope you enjoy this post!

I’m so proud of the progress I’ve made on this lip balm. You can tell I have used up quite a bit of this and will probably put it away for now until the spring rolls around. ALSO update this brand will still be in Loblaws and Superstores just not shoppersdrugmart!

Update 2

Nudestix Tinted blur stick

I really used this a lot and it’s so close to being done. While this isn’t going to be in another project I think I can get this done quite quickly as its usually in my rotation of bases

Nudestix Bondi Bae

I feel like this one was the slowest to use up simply because the tone is so red for my fair skin and as well I sometimes feel like if I wear a more yellow toned foundation this can be a bit too red and look like a bit too much for me. BUT it is a beautiful cream bronzer and I like using it in combination with the nudestix tinted blur stick.

I haven’t blogged in awhile so please forgive my photo quality 

This product wasn’t as used this month because its a bit colder and i find this can look drying under the eyes. I’m happy with the progress on this but again it wasn’t a product I was expecting to use up.

Ah the sad story of how this came to its look now. So I hit pan and was super proud – then I went to highlight as usual and it cracked and shattered. I salvaged what I could. I will keep using it, however I’m sure it will be used up by a few uses.

Garnier moisturizer

garnier-moistuirzer-update-

garnier moisturizer

I’ve really went through this quite quickly. It’s not done yet as it’s a really thick balm. However, I have really enjoyed this. Would I repurchase ones I finish it? No just because I in terms of hydration this isn’t the best but it does sooth my skin.

Lush Feeling younger skin tint

Lush-feeling-Younger-Skin-T

Lush Feeling younger

I did get though a bit more of this but I have to say – I will continue mixing this with my morning moisturizer. It\s nice but can tend to be for lack of a better term, stiff. I don’t know but its not like other glowing primers I have or liquid highlighters – which is why I tend to really mix it with my moisturizer.

Colourpop Kathleenlights Super Shock shadow

colourpop-eyeshadow

colourpop

This has little progress – I just haven’t been using it a whole lot which sucks. It is a beautiful shadow but I’ve just been into different things!

Lush Karma solid perfume. I somehow lost this so no update here.

First Aid Beauty Body shop Revlon

Revlon Youth FX concealerThis is definitely nearing the end of its life. It feels very light and it used to be a bit heavier so I’d say I hit my goal of wanting to put a dent in it.  First Aid Beauty Tinted moisturizer. You can’t really tell the progress of this but it is nearly done. If its a bit darker and you hold it up to the light you can see the progress. The body shop lip and cheek tint. I think this is definitely close to actually being finished. It feels a lot lighter in weight and I’m hoping to finish this sometime in the next remaining months of 2018 or in the first two month of 2019.

What are you panning next?


Project Pan 13 by Halloween update 2

Hello all! If you are following this project with other bloggers and YouTubers then you will see they have already posted their updates earlier this month. But I felt that since the finale is Oct 31, I wanted to put this up today so I could actually have a bit more progress to show. I didn’t finish any products this month like I did last update but I made some significant progress.

Joe Fresh Tinted Lip Balm in Mango

Joe-Fresh-Lip-balm

Update 1

joe-fresh-lip-balm-update-2

Update 2

I am so excited about the progress on this product! I have a significant dip in this and I think I can actually get this at least half this size by Halloween. I keep this at my desk so I reapply it throughout the day so that is how I’ve been able to get such good progress.

Nudestix Tinted Blur stick

nudestix-tinted-blur-stick

Update 1

nudestix-blur-stick-update-

Update 2

I am so happy with my progress on this! I used this at least 2-3 days a week (since I’m also testing other foundations and such) and it has gone down significantly from last update as you can see in the comparison photos!

Nudestix Bondi Bae

nudestix-bondie-bae

update 1

nudestix-bondi-bae-update-2

update 2

I am happy with my progress on this but I didn’t use it as much as I was planning. I really like this cream bronzer but sometimes it can be a bit too red toned so I usually pair it with its brand counter part versus my tinted moisturizer than can pull orange then it’s just a whole situation.

Cover Fx Loose setting powder

update 1

Cover-fx-update-2

update 2

I thought I would have more progress but unfortunately since moving back to Northern Ontario I really haven’t been using a lot of this one and I was really hoping to have it done by Halloween. I might start using it to set from my crease to my brow bone and continue using as ever so slight amount under my eyes.

Becca Champagne Pop

update 1

becca-champagne-pop-update-

update 2

I actually have quite significant progress on this. While I haven’t hit pan on it I can see a little dip which is exciting! I think to finish up what would be my second highlighter ever would be amazing.

Garnier 3 in 1 rose moisturizer

garnier-moistuirzer-update-

This is going quite well. I use this every single night as my last step and slather it on. To be quite honest, while this feel luxurious I don’t know how much it actually moisturizes. I feel like my Lush celestial does a much better job and my skin the next morning actually feels moisturized so when I’m done this one I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing.

Lush Feeling Younger Skin Tint

Lush-feeling-Younger-Skin-T

I haven’t been using this as a makeup product but I have been using it mixed in with my morning moisturizer and have quite been liking it. You can see that it has a significant dip and I think I can get even more use this coming month because of the colder weather rolling in I am gonna want even more glow then I like now.

Colourpop Kathleenlights

 

 

colourpop-eyeshadow

Update 2 ( I didn’t take a clear picture in my first update so alas there is not one)

I don’t think these shadows ever end. I see the people on YouTube with such good pan and here I am barely making a dent! Granted I have only been using this 1-2 times a week but I was hoping to see some pan but I don’t think that will happen.

Lush Karma Solid Perfume

karma-solid-perfume-update-

Again I have not been using but I’ve decided to keep it at my desk to apply throughout the day. I don’t think I will hit my goal of make a good dent but hopefully if I have it at my desk I’ll be able to use it a lot more.

Revlon Youth Fx concealer

update-2-revlon-concealer

I feel like this is a lot lighter in weight then it was at the beginning of the project so I’m confident I will finish it by halloween. Pro tip – if you like to see how much product you’ve used don’t buy this for it has opaque packaging

The First aid Beauty tinted moisturizer

This doesn’t have its own picture because I’ve been bad at marking it off. But it feels like its nearing the end when I squeeze it. The next product again has opaque packaging but I can feel that it is getting quite empty and it feels so much lighter then when I started the project.

The body shop lip and cheek tint

the-body-shop-update-2

Again, this has opaque packaging so I can’t really tell how much I’ve used but I can tell that it is a lot lighter in weight and less is starting to come out on the little doe foot applicator.

Products I’ve used up in this project

Nudestix concealer

The ordinary hyaluronic acid and B5

Thanks for reading! What are you trying to use up?!

13 By Halloween: Update 1

Ah the 13 by Halloween project pan update. I am so excited to update everyone on my progress. I will say some products were really difficult to tell the progress since in the intro I forgot to take pictures showing the beginning of a few items (i.e the progress of my cream products and my lip products) but because I recently got a tripod I can actually start taking better progress pics which is super exciting.

I am so excited I finished two things in this project (and the crowd goes wild). I finished my Nudestix concealer, I thought I could get more uses but the last part of the concealer pushed into the wood so alas it is officially done. The second thing I finished was the Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid + B5. I got this done pretty quickly because when I use these types of serums I used a full pipette every night to ensure maximum hydration. My Garnier moisturizer has shown quite a bit of progress. I don’t know how much I love this but it is nice to wear at night and smells really good (not that I should be loving scents in skincare but alas here we are) so once  I finish it I will give a full review.

My Lush feeling younger highlight has gone down quite a bit because I use it to mix into my First Aid Beauty Tinted moisturizer or my normal morning moisturizer which gives it a nice glow. I will say I’m not a fan of this product as a highlighter because I find it doesn’t really sink into the skin like other liquid highlighters. The Kathleenlights supershock eye shadow doesn’t seemingly have much progress, but I have been using this pretty much everyday that I’ve been wearing makeup but I think it really is the never ending product.  My Coverfx loose powder has also been rocking and rolling, I drew a line on it so you could really tell the progress and how much I’ve used. 

nudestix-bondie-bae

coverfx-powder

My three cream products. Nudestix bondie bae hasn’t shown much progress because of the way I use it. I usually put my makeup sponge on top of the stick and then dab it on the all the bronzer areas so it doesn’t show much progress but trust, I use this daily. My Joe Fresh Tinted Lip balm has been in use everyday yet it doesn’t show much progress. I think it’s the never ending product really, hopefully I can make more of a dent in it my Halloween. Becca Champagne Pop, ya’ll I have definitely used it every. Single. Day, even if it’s just inner corn shimmer I used it every day. It is nicely packed so the progress doesn’t look as extensive.  My solid perfume by lush in Karma. I have used this quite often but not as often as I was hoping to but it is more of a fall scent so I’m hoping I’ll get more use of it in the coming two months

The Revlon Youth Fx concealer was in the project because I knew I would finish the Nudestix concealer. I can’t really tell how much I’ve used but I am hoping that if I use this every day I can use it up by Halloween. . My Nudestix Tinted Blur stick is also going well, I haven’t used this a lot this month but I know I can use a lot of it up so I will be making more of an effort to use it. The Body Shop Lip and cheek tint feels a lot lighter then it did at the beginning of the project. Since it is a liquid product you can feel the weightiness of it change which is exciting.

What have you been trying to use up?
