2018 Wrap Up

At the beginning of the year, I posted a list of books I wanted to read and started a “Project Pan” with products I wanted to use up.

Here’s an update on how I did throughout the year…


ProjectPan

^this is what I started with. You can see the original post here.

  1. Tarte Double Duty Beauty Creamy Powder Foundation :: Used this up!
  2. Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer in Light Bronze :: This got hella old so I had to toss it. I did repurchase though. This is one of my favorite bronzers.
  3. Colour Pop No Filter Concealer in Fair 04 :: This shade was too dark so I gave it away. I did repurchase it in my correct shade (Fair 02) and I love it!
  4. MAC Studio Fix Powder :: Used this up
  5. Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer :: This was a good shade match, but it didn’t look very good on my dry skin. I gave this away. (Review here)
  6. Colour Pop Super Shock Highlighter in Lunch Money :: This got old and dried out, so I tossed it.
  7. LimeLight by Alcone Botanical Foundation :: Used this up (review here)
  8. Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Paaarty :: I’ve used this SO much and I just can’t seem to hit pan. I can see it dwindling down on the sides of the pan though. You can see what I mean here.

I started with 8 products–I used up 3, tossed 2, still working on 1, and gave away 2.

I like the idea of a “Project Pan,” I just think I need to pick better products next time.

    1. I’m so glad to hear that! I really loved “Love Life Again” by Tracie Miles, that is my stand out book of the year. I also like non-fiction so “Sisters First” and “My Story” were two other favorites. I love Jenna Bush Hager on the Today show and I loved reading about their childhood and their family. Elizabeth Smart is such a remarkable person and reading her story of strength and faith was eye opening. Happy New Year!

  2. The print on this blog is very small and hard to read. I would love to read it but the print is too small and my eyes are having a hard time focusing. For more blogging traffic, you might want to consider making the print larger. 🙂
