Labour Day Project Pan finale

Labour day. The extra day off I always look forward to and then you get a four day work week. I wanted to pop this finale up for you all. This was a short project, so there wasn’t much progress on many of these items. I am very close to hitting pan on the NARS highlighter!

Anastasia Bronzer

Intro
Update 1
Finale

This is truly the never ending bronzer. I swear, there is no point at which I will be able to get a dip in this product. I used it about 3 times a week each week of this project but it barely looks like I’ve made a dent!

Hourglass Blush in Incandescent light

Intro
Update 1
Finale

Again … how does this look like I’ve not used it? I swear I use this daily or at least every other day and it still appears untouched!

NARS Highlighter in Fort De France

Intro
Update 1

This is a lovely highlighter – though boarding on too dark for my skintone it is lovely. I love how glossy it looks and how blinding it can be. I didn’t wear this one as much because sometimes it is a bit too much for my day to day. I still love it though and am soooo close to hitting pan!

Too Faced Sweet Peach

Intro
Update 1

I will admit … I did not use this palette as much as I want to this month. I really love the shadows and the colour story but for my early mornings I just didn’t have the time or will to reach for this! Hopefully I’ll get more use of it in the months to come!

Colourpop Supernova shadow running in orbits

Intro
Update 1
finale

This has been my go to shade for a bit of glitter on the daily. Its easy to blend out and doesn’t look chunky on the lids. I am actually about half way through this product. Definently happy with my progress on this one.

If you are into project panning let me know in the comments what you are trying to pan right now!


Project Pan 6 by labour day update 1

This update is a bit later than expected … but nonetheless I thought I would post it because these products are all quite hard pressed so it is difficult to see progress.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Bronzer

Intro
Update 1

This bronzer is so hard pressed in the pan that showing progress is difficult. I find that I only need a tap of this so it will take awhile for any progress to be visible.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush

Intro
Update 2

I really love how glowy and fresh this blush makes my skin look. I really enjoy this formula and am hoping to see a dip in this by the end of the project. Alas, it does end in September but I will continue to use it.

NARS Highlighter

Intro
Update 1

Too Face Sweet Peach

Intro
Update 1

I really love palettes – but I have just not been reaching for this on a daily basis. I have been gravitating towards my liquid shadow from colourpop and my single cream shadows. I am focusing on the shade luscious but its a slow go!

Colourpop Supernova shadow

intro
Update 1

Like I said previously. This is a lovely eye shadow that I have been using daily. You can tell there has been some solid progress and I’m so happy with this shadow. I mix it with the Anastasia bronzer and then use this all over the lid.


Project Pan Roulette: Intro

I love panning products … and in an attempt to continue a trend of consciously using products I am going to do another project pan roulette! Thanks to Rebbecca and Alexy. I chose 9 categories. I have a few goals for this project and far warning, the work dip will make an appearance in each explanation. This project will end on Oct 15. Just to make it a short and sweet round. 

Something you are afraid to Pan

Filmstar bronze and glow

I chose the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar bronze and glow. I know an ambitious goal. But I am trying to choose products that I’m loving currently and not force myself to use ones just to use them. I want to see some amount of progress. 

Something you aren’t sure if you like 

Burt's Bees BB Cream

The Burt’s Bees BB Cream. This product ebbs and flows. Sometimes I love the finish and other times it looks cakey. I’d like to finish this! I know super ambitious but I think if I focus I can do it. 

A product you bought online

Sublt Beauty stack

The sublt beauty stack. OKAY IS THIS CHEATING. I don’t know. But I’m currently using this consistently so I decided to put it in this project. My goal is to make a dip in the concealer. 

Something from a lesser known brand

Cheekbone Beauty Lipgloss

Cheekbone beauty lip gloss is sundance. This is a lovely lip gloss. I’m talking it goes over the dryness and lines in your lips so nicely. I’d highly recommend this formula and this brand. I don’t know how to tell the progress in this product. So I’m just going to use it daily and see what happens.

A product in a palette

100% Pure Palette

Again – am I cheating. Likely. But here I am. The taupe shade in the 100% Pure naked 2 palette is so pretty. It’s easy, not super pigmented and gives a slight amount of shiny pigment to the eye. I want to hit pan! 

Something overrated

Makeup Revolution Concealer

The makeup revolution concealer. This is so overrated. It also isn’t my favourite but I thought I would make an effort to use it! 

An item from your favorite brand

Colourpop Ringer

 Colourpop ringer. I do rather like colourpop – I drag them for the fast makeup they produce but yet, I continue to love their products and it is a brand that in my opinion, is affordable, has a wide shade range and unique products. I want to see a dip in this product.

Something you have considered decluttering

B Beauty by Superdrug

The B by Superdrug lip and cheek tint. I bought this last year in Europe and have since considered decluttering it purely because I wasn’t using it. I love the shade and the ease of use of this product and I would like to see some sort of dip by the end of this project. 

Pin for later!


6 by Labour Day Project Pan

I love project pans and wanted to start another (actually I have been using these since May 1) but am just late on posting these items. Usually, the classic labour day project pan is a 7 by labour day but I wanted to do 6 as to not have too many things on my plate. This project will end of September 2 so it is a Spring-Summer project.

Too Faced Sweet Peach

Too Face Sweet Peach

The first item I chose was the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette, particularly the shade luscious and summer yum because I use those shades quite often. This is a lovely palette that I generally use in the spring anyway so I decided to throw it in this project.

NARS Forte De France

NARS highlighter

The second item in this project is one of my favourite highlighters. The NARS highlighter in the shade Forte De France. Quite honestly, I don’t think I will hit pan on this but I do think I have a shot since it does have an existing dip from being in previous projects.

Hourglass blush in incandescent Electra

Hourglass blush open

This is such a lovely blush that it is so easy to wear. It doesn’t have a ton of peach in it but the marbling makes for a nice effect on the skin. I want to see this dip significantly in the next few months.

Anastasia Bronzer in Tawny

Anastasia Beverly Hills Bronzer

This is a lovely matte bronzer and has a nice finish. This does pull red and I like to be light handed with it. I don’t see this hitting pan but I want to use it as much as possible. If you are interested in a full review you can read it here.

The ELF plumping lip gloss in Champagne

Me holding the ELF plumping gloss

I chose this lip gloss because it seemed like one of the easier things to pan. Every time I use it, the product goes down a bit more and the progress is visible.

The Colourpop Supernova Shadow in Running Orbits

Colourpop supernova shadows

I chose this for the project because it also has some progress already. It creates a lovely glittery eye and is super easy to use. I don’t find this creases easily and it makes me look “put together” quickly. I even wear this in a light layer during the day and I love it!

Pin for Later!
