I spent 2015 watching a lot of Pan That Palette YouTube videos and every time I watched one I thought about doing it myself. I decided that I want to jump on the bandwagon this year! However, I’m not going to pan one palette. I want to pan a couple of different little eyeshadow quads. I haven’t yet decided if I want to keep the quads separate like they are now or depot them and put them in a z-palette.
Along with the Pan That Palette project I will be doing other project pans throughout the year. I have a lot of makeup and I want to start working through some of it. Since I am subscribed to Ipsy and Birchbox I have been getting more makeup in the two boxes so even though I haven’t purchased many things I have things coming in once a month. I will make a post in a couple of days on what my goals are for this year as far as making progress on products. I will also include a makeup inventory in that post.
The first quad I’m working on panning this year is this Coastal Scents sampler. I got it in a trade with someone on Facebook. As you can see, there is no progress in this at all. It is basically brand new. I used the Regalia Purple and Mauve yesterday for the first time and I really like them but the other two haven’t been touched at all yet. I think Polar Bear is going to be the hardest one for me to use because I really don’t use white shadows. If you have any suggestions on how I should use it please leave me them in the comments!!
The next quad I want to pan is another Coastal Scents sampler. This one is kind of old and I haven’t used it that many times. There is a small amount of progress on all of the shadows, with the most progress on Ashen. I don’t use black colors very often but I’ve been learning to love them recently so hopefully I will be able to make good progress on them this month.
Next I have another Coastal Scents sampler, surprise, surprise! This came in either Ipsy or Birchbox over the summer. I really like this sampler. The maroon shade already has a little bit of pan showing and a big dip in the whole upper right hand corner. This wasn’t because I’ve used a lot of it. I dropped it and it broke and it keeps breaking more and more. The matte brown shade has a bit of a dip in it but it doesn’t show very well in this picture. I don’t really know how I’m going to use the color in the upper left corner. It doesn’t have very good color pay off, but I will work on it as best as I can. I might repress it so I don’t have as much of a problem with it because I really do like this shade a lot. When I finish this sampler I might actually buy the palette because I do really like the shadows in it.
Last but not least, I want to use up all of the small shades in this Rimmel London Scandal Eyes quad in 002. I hit pan on twp pf the small shades and I have almost hit pan on the other one. I don’t like using this quad at all. The colors are so pretty, but I cant get a brush to pick up the shadows well because of how small they are so I have to use one of the sponge tip applicators with it. I think I paid $1 for this at CVS a couple of years ago because it was 75% off and I had coupons. I’m not focusing on the middle shade for this one but I will use it throughout the year and if I make progress on it I will be happy, but if I don’t I wont really be upset about it.
Overall I’m working on panning 15 shadows. It is a lot of shadows but they are all small sizes and I already have pan showing on 3 of them and I am close on another 2. Some of the shades will be a challenge for me, especially the white one and the blue one, but I am determined to do this!
I’m not including my Naked palette in this project, but it is getting old and I feel like some of the shadows are starting to go bad so I will be working on it throughout the year as coordinating shades with the shadows in my Pan That Palette. This is where I am with it right now. I will continue to include pictures of it in all of my updates. I am very proud of my progress so far with this because I have pan showing on 4 different shadows. In this picture it only looks like 3, but the copper shade also has pan.
I encourage you all to join me in the Pan That Palette challenge this year. This is the third year of the challenge and a great way to use up the makeup you have spent money on. It was started by Amber F on youtube.
I would love for you all to join my new group PANtastic Project Panning on Facebook. It will be a great way for us to discuss our progress and help each other figure out ways to use the shadows that we are having trouble panning.
Put the links to your videos and blog posts of your intros down in the comments! I would love to see what everyone is working on this year! I plan on updating once a month, probably around the beginning of the month, but I will decide later in the month if it will be the beginning, middle, or end of the month. I’m leaning more towards the beginning though.
I love you all<3
