Project X Pan Update

I posted about my Project X Pan about 3 weeks ago. I said I wasn't going to buy anything until the Sephora Friends & Family. For the most part I didn't really buy anything except maybe one MAC lipstick which was pretty good for me. I wanted to update you all with what I used up and what I still have left. I have been trying really hard to work through the products that  listed in my previous post. Click here to see my original post. 

Project X Pan Update
What I Started with 3 Weeks Ago

So here is what I used up:

My goal was to use up 5 products and I did. Technically some might say I cheated because I still had some concealer left but I just felt like it was breaking me out and probably needed to be tossed. 

Project X Pan Update
What I Finished
1. Bobbi Brown Stick Concealer (depotted)- I put this in my work bag but never really felt like I needed to use it much.
2. Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage (only the hard side is left)-Well this one did end up going away. I used it everyday. 
3. Tarte Eye Primer-I finally used this up and moved back to my Urban Decay one.
4. Anastasia Clear Brow Gel-I finished this and went back to Maybelline.
5. Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Plum- I kept it in my work bag to finish it. I used  a lip brush for a while and then just finished it up.

This is what I am close to finishing:

Project X Pan Update
Product's I'm Close to Finishing
1. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion-Since I only use a small amount everyday this takes a while but I'm getting there. 
2. Milani Concealer- I'm pretty sure this will be the next thing to go. It's just about done.
3. & 4.  Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Pencils in Rockstar and Stash-These are almost done so I am going to try to use them everyday. They really last a while though. The purple one will go first. 
5. Ofra Universal Eyebrow Pencil- I think I only have about a week left of this.
6. Stila Lip Glaze in Mulberry-I think I have 1-2 weeks left of this.
7. Chanel Mystic Eyes Quad (only pink color)-I am just trying to use up the pink color. I have hit pan on it but it won't go away. I use it everyday as a highlight. It's still not going anywhere but I'm trying hard.

This is what I still have a while to go on: 

Product's I Have a While To Go 
Product's I Have a While To Go
1. Neutrogena Healthy Skin in Nude- There is now about 1/2 left in bottle. I try to use it everyday.
2. Bourjous Healthy Mix in 53- There is about 3/4 left in the bottle. I haven't used it yet because I am focusing on the Neutrogena one now.
3. Dream Fresh BB Cream in Light/Medium- There is about 3/4 left in the bottle. I wear this only on the weekend. Because I don't wear this a lot its taking a while to get through. I would like to use this up and go back to my Nars Tinted Moisturizer on the weekends.
4. Laura Mercier Foundation Primer- There is less than 1/2 left. I use this everyday with my Neutrogena foundation. A little bit goes a long way so this will take a bit to get through.
5. Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Dark Circle Roller- When I finish my milani I will go back to this. This has a ton of product though. You can't tell how much you have left either. I havne't finished my Milani yet so this is still just sitting there. 
6. Maybelline Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser in Brightener-This one I use everyday. I thought I would finish it up soon but I had to depot it because it broke and it seems like I need to use so little so it's lasting me forever. I think I have another month of this left at least.
7. Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch-I will use this one after the age rewind one. There isn't a ton of product in this though. I've tried to keep this in my work bag but I still have quite a bit left.
8. Benefit Watt's Up Highlighter-This is taking me forever to get through. I have half of the mini left. I'll probably have this for another 1-2 months though.
9. Laguna Bronzer-Another one that is going to take a while even though it's a mini. I give this 2 months left. I have hit quite a bit of pan so the only thing could be if it breaks which it could because they tend to break often.
10. Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in Birthday Suit-Cream shadows last forever. I will try to use this a few days a week. I still have a good amount left. I'm moving closer to hitting pan.
11. Rimmel Airy Fairy Lipstick- I still have about half left but I am going to try and use it up even though I love the color. I've kind of gotten sick of this color so its been hard to use it up.
12. LipFusion LipInfatuation in Angelic-This is a mini but I'm going to try and finish it. Lipgloss takes longer for me to finish for some reason though. I was focusing on the Stila so this hasn't made much movement.
13. Korres Lipgloss in Fuchsia (54)-I've had this for way too long so I need to finish it. I really like the color but don't wear red enough. I still have quite a bit of this color.

So that's it for my Project X Pan update. I'm happy to have used up a few things but still have a while to go. While I won't be on a spending ban anymore, I will still try to be on a low buy and just make smarter purchases. If any of you are on a Project Pan would love to hear how yours is going? I will be sure an update you in another few weeks to let you know what new items I use up!



  1. This is a great idea! Its hard not to buy new makeup though...


    1. Very very hard but I think a low buy is reasonable. Try that first and see how it goes. Also shopping your stash helps a lot too.

  2. That is actually pretty amazing. It takes me months and months to finish anything up, it's pretty ridiculous.

    1. I think if you wear the same product most days of the week it helps to go through it quicker. Thanks for taking the time to comment on my blog.

  3. This makes me want to start my own project 10 pan. But it just seems to take a lot of will power.

    I really like your blog and followed your blog. Can you follow back? thank you!

    1. It is hard to do but some people are great at it. I find it extremely challenging but I'm trying. Glad you enjoy my blog. I have followed yours too.
