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

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!

Rolling Project 10 Pan 2019 intro

I am so excited to start my new project pan for 2019. I have picked a product from all the categories in my makeup collection. A cream, powder and of course a matte and shimmery bronzer. I have a few set goals in mind and I will be rolling in products as I go. If I either finish one, or if I get extremely bored by one I will just roll in a new one. I will attempt to update monthly but if I don’t have significant progress than I will forgo the update for that month.

The base products

First Aid Beauty Tinted Moisturizer

I really like this, however it does pull a bit dark on me. I am hoping to finish this within the first month of this project and by the next update roll something new in.

Revlon concealer

This concealer is amazing, I really like it. I can feel like it’s nearing it’s end. I hope to also be done this by the first update and roll in something new.


Nudestix Tinted blur stick

Again, another of my favourite base products. I LOVE this so much. It is so sheer and creates a dewy finish even with its blurring properties. I also think this is something I can have finished by the next update.


The Body Shop multi stick

This was a favourite from summer 2016-17 and I wanted to get more use out of it. It doesn’t appear to be available online anymore but I am sure you can find it in store. I am hoping to finish this one this year or at least, see a significant shortening (is that a word) of the stick itself.


Physicians Formula Butter blush

This is also in my project pan roulette, okay is this cheating? Yes quite possible. But I really like it and want to hit pan on it.  It is a perfect nude blush for my skin tone and it gives my cheeks a healthy glow.


Physicians Formula Butter bronzer

I have already hit pan on it and hope to further expand the pan. I still enjoy this and hope that I can finish it this year.


Joe Fresh Highlighter

I chose a few highlighters for this project. A girl has got to have choices. I do quite like this and it is a bit older in my collection so I want to see this used as much as I can. Hopefully I can see some progress each month!


Rimmel London Kate Sculpting Palette

This is another older product in my collection and I’m not sure they sell this exact shade anymore. As you might remember, my products on the chopping block this was in it. I discovered I love the bronzer and want to hit pan on this one this year.


Essence pure nude highlighter

This was one of my first YouTube made me buy it products. I do quite enjoy this highlighter. It is subtle and pretty and never fails me.

Becca Champagne Pop

A moment of silence for the fallen one. I can still use this despite it’s appearance. I can use this with my finger and with a brush still. I think it will actually be quite easy to use up so it was a good attainable project pan goal for me to have this year.

Are you doing a project pan this year?

Project Pan update

I’m so excited for my first project pan update. I’m so excited to share my progress. My last post I said that I had too many shades of blushes, and as I was looking at the stuff I bought, tried once, I thought; it’s time to give this to a friend. These products are amazing, but just not the right colour or just products I don’t truly need. Hence, my need to do this project and force myself to shop my stash! I hope you enjoy reading through the progress I’ve made! IMG_0868.jpg

Covergirl nudes: I have made so much progress on this. I have hit pan on my dark brown shade (been using that as a brow powder) and then my sparkly white shade for my brow bone colour. This is the one where visibly you can see I have actually made progess. 

Colourpop lunch money highlighter (pictured below): the pan has expanded. Not by much but it has expanded and I’m so happy to see this. I use this literally everywhere that I want to highlight.

IMG_0865.jpgMy Pur Potted concealer: again, the metal part has expanded and I’m so happy to be done this. When I’m done this I have two other concealers to use up.

My 100% Pure lip caramel: I can’t really tell the progress on this one but I think it’s pretty good. I wear it pretty much every day and am starting to see the glass inside which is a good sign.  Not gonna lie, I forgot about my Mac lip liner in Oak….I keep forgetting to use it and misplacing it.

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer: I don’t know? As I said before this is a never ending bronzer and I don’t think I have made a dent. This is literally the never ending bronzer. 

IMG_0866.jpgThe NYX dark circle corrector: this wasn’t something that I used everyday leading up to this update but I have been trying to use it. However, I find it can be really difficult to use because I have got such a dent in it already getting my finger in there has been a doozy.

Thus far I have learned that this is a really good thing to keep me focused and second guessing myself when I see that drugstore lippie that I heard Rachhloves talking about but I know I have 4 similar shades sitting at home. I know that may seem like common sense to all of you cool folks, but for me this is something that is significant. We are always trying to find that “perfect” something and I think that can get really consumerist and make us lose sight of why we fell in love with beauty in the first place.
