In 2018, I decided to experiment a little and try out the blogger classic – a Project Pan series. If you’re not sure what project pan is, simply put: it’s trying to use up some products. Personally, I’m choosing 5 products at first and seeing how it goes. I’ll be using those products as much as possible for 5 weeks and seeing if I can empty them all, or if I can at least make a sizable dent. Not only will it help me decide whether I love the product or not, but will also help me declutter slightly, as my collection is looking rather large at the moment!
MY CHOICES FOR PROJECT PAN-ING
My first 5 products were chosen because they’re running low or I haven’t used them in ages and are as follows:
- Collection Primed & Ready Setting Powder in ‘Transparent’
- Primark Liquid Foundation (old packaging) in ‘Porcelain’
- Rimmel Fix & Perfect Primer
- Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara (sample)
- The Ordinary Moisturising Factors +HA
All of the items are/were favourites at some point, so I know I’ll enjoy using them rather than getting sick of putting the same thing on my face every day and it helps that they’re all running out anyway, so I can finally use them up!
The Collection Primed & Ready Invisible Setting Powder has already hit pan, but I want to completely finish it off. I love this powder and it’s always been a firm favourite, so I don’t think it’ll be difficult to project pan.
I have about a quarter of the 35ml left in the tube of this foundation, but I also have a second tube of this that hasn’t been opened yet. Hopefully I can finally finish this so I can open that second tube!
There’s probably around 1/5 of this Rimmel primer left. I haven’t had this for long, but I immediately fell in love with the texture and hydration. I know that as soon as this runs out, I’ll be getting another!
The Lancome Monsieur Big mascara is something I don’t really want to run out, as I’m enjoying it so much, but I know it needs using up. It’s really volumising and lengthening for my stubby and thin lashes which is why I love it, but I’ve had it for a while and it needs using! It’s too expensive for me to buy full-size, but at least I had a chance to try it.
I probably have around a quarter of this left. I got this moisturiser almost a year ago in a LookFantastic Beauty Box and fell in love with how thick and moisturising it is. However, I’ve had so many moisturiser samples since then that I haven’t had a chance to use this one up!
THE FUTURE OF PROJECT PAN
I’ll update you with how I’m getting on in the next few weeks. Once a product runs out, I’ll be replacing it with something else so I’ll always have 5 products to use up – these may be skincare, haircare, perfume or makeup! I’m looking forward to this new series and I hope you are too. If you want to see a video about my 2018 project pan plans, check out the video below and subscribe for updates!
