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!


Project Pan Roulette Finale

I am extremely late to the game for this finale…work has been very busy and getting all my updates up on time has been a challenge (full time workers and bloggers how do you do it). I am done with this project and am unsure if I’m going to join the next round or not. It starts on April 15th so I have some time! Again, as I say in these posts each time, this was started by Rebecca Morgan and Alexandra Sjosten.

Something in your Favourite Shade

This has zero progress. I have decided to declutter this product purely because it just isn’t something that blends well and I didn’t use it at all during the last four months.

A Product You’ve Already Hit Pan on

I made some good progress on this. This bronzer is pretty hard press so I found it hard to go through. I love this for a light glowy wash of colour on the cheeks and for a wash of colour on my eyes.

This blush is never ending. I love it and will keep using it as this is in my 2019 year long project pan. I love that it is neutral and gives a lovely flush to the cheeks.

The Colourpop cornelius supershock shadow is one of my favourite basic one colour looks. I have put this back in my collection for now and am using the shade Truth now.

An Old Favourite

Still love this lip stick. The Burt’s Bees Lipsticks are exactly what I need in my life. They are easy to wear, don’t require a mirror and are the perfect go to shades for the gal on the go. This is staying in my everyday rotation.

A Product You Always Buy on Sale

I generally buy mascara on sale. I liked the Maybelline Lash sensational but it was super difficult to get off. It didn’t smudge which is a huge plus and made my lashes look nice, but alas I’ve had this since June 2018 so I think it’s time to part with it.

Pin for later!


Project Pan Roulette: Round 2

Hello all! I am excited to announce my next project pan roulette. This is a huge collaborative project with instagrammers, bloggers and youtubers! Check out Rebecca Morgan and Alexy who started this! The project consists of 6 categories that are randomly picked by you on random.org. This project technically started Nov 5th and I will end March 5th.

The categories I got were: a product you always buy on sale, something in your favourite shade, a drugstore product, an old favourite, a product you’ve already hit pan on, a collab item.

A product you always buy on sale

maybelline mascara

I usually buy mascara’s on sale, unless its an essence mascara, I tend to buy all my mascaras on sale. I bought the Maybelline lash sensational luscious full fan effect mascara on sale. I don’t mind this mascara at all. My only gripe it is difficult to get off but does give the lashes a beautiful effect.

Something in your favourite shade

Body shop bronze stick

DSCF2166

This was hard because I love a lot of colours. My favourite makeup is bronze. I love bronze shades – bronzer, bronze eye shadow, bronzy blushes. I decided to pick The Body Shop cream eye colour stick in Cyprus Bronze. I do really like this shade a lot but when I bought this I was on the hunt for a dupe for the maybelline bad to the bronze but its not. This is a darker bronze and isn’t as creamy as the Maybelline. I want to try to use this up or at least put a dent in it.

A drugstore product

PF Blush

DSCF2170

I found this category quite broad so I decided to pick a blush. I chose the Physicians Formula butter blush in vintage rouge. I really like the formula of this and the flush it gives to the skin. My goal for this product is to make a bit of a dent but it’s unrealistic for me to hit pan on it.

An old favourite

burts bees lipstickDSCF2174

I chose Burt’s Bees Suede Splash. I really love this lipstick and have mentioned it so many times on this blog. I thought that I would use this for this project as it overlaps nicely with the products I chose for my 12 Pans of Christmas (stay tuned). 

A product you already hit pan

elf bronzer

DSCF2172

It took me awhile to think of something that wasn’t already in my year long project. But I remembered I hit pan on my ELF Golden Bronzer. I forgot how great this bronzer is. It’s a glowy bronzer and gives such a nice hint of colour and looks great on the eyes as well.

A collab product

colourpop corneilousDSCF2168

I don’t own many collab products but I thought I would chose the colourpop super shock shadow in Cornelious which was a Kathleenlights collaboration. It is a beautiful matte warm caramel shade. This looks really nice as a base for any warm eye shadow look or any even cool eye shadow look. This is a great warm crease shade and makes a beautiful all over lid shade.

What are you trying to pan?
