Sephora Spring 2019 VIB Sale Recommendations

Sephora, our higher end beauty mecca, is infamous for having very few sales. Sorry if you fell in love with a $30 mascara but can’t justify paying that every time the suggested 3 month usage period is up. Luckily, Sephora does have a sale in […]

Project Pan 2019

Project Pan 2019

I have a lot of makeup products that I need to use. I get a deep sense of satisfaction when I finish products up. I can pretty easily finish up foundations, concealers, lotions, and anything else I’m using on a regular basis. I have a harder time with lipsticks, eyeshadows, blushes, etc. because I’m always wanting to try different ones.

I thought maybe I should take inspiration from the Project Panning community and pick out a few products to try and use up by the end of 2019.

Here’s what I’m going to try and pan:

Foil Pack Samples – I’ve always had a weird thing about hording samples and never using them. I don’t know why. I put them away and never use them, telling myself that maybe one day I will. The biggest problem is that I just kind of forget I have them. I put these right on my vanity where I can see them in hopes that I will indeed use them.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop – I got this mini version of the infamous Champagne Pop as a 100 point perk from Sephora. There has been so much hype about this highlighter that I didn’t really think I would love it THAT much. But I do. It’s fantastic. It’s buildable, so you can use it for a subtle glow or a really popping highlight. I do have a slightly bigger mini or this, so I won’t feel too bad about using this one up. Plus, the packaging on this cheap mini broke so it’s not great to travel with anymore.

Tarte Tartelette Tease Palette – This is my most-used palette by far. I love how small it is, and I take it on every trip I go on. You can create a surprising amount of looks with it, considering how small it is. I’ve had it for a long time and have put a nice dent in a couple of the shades, but I really want to hit pan in this palette this year. I’ve never hit pan on an eyeshadow before.

Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Glacé – This came as part of the Sephora birthday set last year, and it is a perfect mauvey-nude. It’s a very flattering colour and is extremely wearable, so I think it will be able to use this quite a lot.

MAC Cosmetics Mini Lipstick in Velvet Teddy – This was another super hyped product that I bought into. I love MAC lipsticks. I don’t reach for this colour a lot, and I’m not sure why. It’s a really nice beige that can work with a lot of eyelooks. Again, because it’ a mini I think I might be able to get through this one.

Benefit Cosmetics Powders in Hoola Matte Bronzer and Rockateur Blush – I got these two powders in a holiday set a couple years ago and I still use it fairly regularly. As you can see, there is a pretty good dent in the bronzer, but I tend to only use it as a contour shade. I think I could use it quicker by also using it as a bronzer. The blush shade is a really nice subtle pink that is nice on the daily.

NYX Concealer Jar – I like this concealer to cover up blemishes. It’s creamy and easy to blend. I bought a back up of this already and I;m not even halfway through this one. I’ve been going lighter with foundation lately and going heavier on concealer. I think I can use this product up faster if I use it like that.
