Finished Products and Hitting Pan

Hitting pan and finishing a product feels like a major makeup accomplishment, especially when it is something that has been neglected for a while.  So, I figured why not have a thread where we can share this accomplishment.  Perhaps we can all inspire one another, and probably discover a new product or two to replace the finished one lol.

 

I am about to run out of a few items.

 

 

My Buxum Lash mascara is getting low, and my Mega Plush mascara has maybe a couple of uses left.  I wore the Mega Plush a lot this summer.  The Neutrogena concealer feels like it is getting low, but I gotta give it some credit for being a drug store product.  I bought it during the Spring semester, so it has lasted quite a while.  TheBalm BalmShelter TM, which I bought last summer, is almost at the end of its days. 

 

 

 

I've used my Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Frosting a lot this summer as well, and that is what remains of it.  The nub is what remains of my Sephora Retractable Waterproof Lip Liner in Nude.  I need to replace it ASAP!!  Although no where near finished, I have made a small dent in my Buxom lip gloss in April that came in a 500 point perk.

 

 

 

Another item that I need to replace ASAP: Victoria's Secret Pro Lip Scrub and Balm.  It has helped my lips out a lot since I bought it sometime in February.

katie1724---Your nars powder, is that a powder foundation or a setting powder?

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

I'm at the bottom of my Laura Mericer Sparkling Pink lipstick.

 

I've also hit the pan on my Cargo Blu Ray powder.

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

Way to go, Sephoramusthave!!!!  You didn't need any words to describe your post; the pictures do the talking!  I'm amazed at how much you have used up in the Ammo palette.  How long did it take to clean out those pans?

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

WOWIE!!!! You are using that boxed powder from Benefit up!!! Nice one!

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

Thanks lylysa! Its my holy grail bronzer. This is actually my second Dallas, the first one I used up completely a few months ago and this one's just about gone too. If I use it everyday I dont think that it would last me more than a month. And its the original .42 oz size, the new ones are .25 oz so they wont last me as long. Smiley Sad I have 3 other bronzers though so I probably shouldnt buy a replacement until I hit pan on everything else, at least! (I have Benefit Hoola, Thebalm bettyloumanizer, and thebalm bahama mama. The bahama mama is not full sized but its a decent size, its in one of my face palettes)

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

Kudos to the fact it was the .42 oz!

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

Thanks! I'm bummed that they dont make the sizes but I do have to give props to them for making the box less bulky, adding a little mirror and improving the brush! The brushes that came in the .42 oz boxes were *awful*, they shed like crazy and I always tossed them after the first use because I had to spend 5 minutes picking off the hairs from the brush that got stuck to my face! The new brushes dont shed, I use the one in my Dandelion blush, I've used it dozens of times and it never ever shed, and its a lot more dense than before. I only have one blush brush so I appreciate little things like this!

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

That's a great plus! Ugh, I can only imagine picking up the old brushand finding tons of tiny, shed brush hairs on your powder!

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

It worse when you are wearing cream or liquid foundation. When you're wearing powder foundation at least you can brush it off pretty easily....but when they really get it down deep in cream/liquid formulas.....its a nightmare. Once I had to wash my face completely and start again because I ruined my makeup by picking off parts of my foundation in certain spots!

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

Oh no!!! Smiley Sad That's horrible! Normally if I get any stubborn spots that won't budge (be it brush hairs or make up fall out), take a q-tip or sponge with a drop of silicone/dimethicone primer and go over the area lightly, it normally picks up anything without touching or moving your make up underneath!

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

Oh wow great tip! I just recently started using liquid foundation, I've been using cream and powder formulas for years...and as my luck would have it.....the liquid foundation I have is discontunued and can only be bought at a CCO in San Marcos, an hour and a half away...*if* no one else bought it.

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

Gahhh, it's so tough falling in love with discontinued products!!!!!

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

Thanks Kimmi! Usually it takes me awhile to hit pan on makup, skincare/bodycare I go through much faster so its really exciting! You know....if I am using my Ammo palette and nothing else, I think that it takes me 3-4 weeks to use up just one of the shadows in there. They arent full sized pans and I use a brush. I have one use left of grifter but I have a brand new grifter in my UD BOS. Its just such a nice spring pink, has a little more glitter than I would like but I love it anyway. I looked through my shadows one more time and I think that I have enough brights right now for spring! Yay!

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

I just hit pan on my first thing ever, and I'm really excited! I'm just getting into makeup and it always feels like I'm buying things I'll never finish. The tarte blush that came with the carried away holiday set, however, says otherwise!

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

This is such an awesome idea!!Smiley Happy I honestly have lost track of how many times I have had to replace my Stila One Step Correct Primer. Maybe 4 or 5 times? The worst part is that, with tax, its $40 per bottle! That means I have spent around $200 on just that primer! Same goes for Revlon Photo Ready powder which I have probably had to replace 3 or 4 times. I run out of face product a lot since I use so much of it every day! Hahaha! I would have to replace mascara a lot if I didnt buy so much of it when I dont need more than one or two at a time.... Iv had to replace eye liner also.

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

I'm finally hitting pan on some of my naked palette, mainly Half Baked.  I finished up a few masacaras, but I have so many small tubes from gift with purchase, I do t think I'll be buying mascara forever.  I also am almost out of Benefit Porefessional.  I also have a ton of small tubes from samples.  Other than that , I'm so well stocked with products I don't need to buy a thing For a long time.

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

I've hit pan on my Rimmel London Stay Matte setting powder in transparent so yay! You know...I dont think that I've *ever* hit pan on a drugstore face product. I think that I'm going to hit pan on a lot more items over the next few months because I've put myself on a no buy. And I dont know whats up with my Origins foundation....it looks full on the outside but today I could get very little product out and I tapped the bottle pretty hard. I've been using it everyday for a few weeks now, so I guess I'm near the end with this one too. I've put the bottle upside down and I'll try to scratch out the rest of the product with a brush.

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

I'm about to run out of Clinique Dramatically Different Gel, Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel, and Urban Decay De-Slick spray. I run out of these items over and over again!!

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

I recently hit pan on a blush and an eyeshadow! I hit pan on MAC's Well Dressed blush and MAC's mylar eyeshadow. It seems like you have to use a blush or eyeshadow forever to even hit pan on it. Now I'm working on using those up, so I can move on to some new stuff.

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

Some of the items I recently finished up:

 

-Laura Mercier Sparklink Pink lipstick (already got another tube)

-Issey Miyake Floral perfume (got a tinnnnny bit left in the 3.3 oz bottle, bought the 0.8 oz one ready to replace it when the large one is done)

-Givenchy Ange Ou Demon Le Secret (also stocked up on it already, tossed the old one out)

-Stila's Kitten eye shadow, hit the pan on one well, got a back up one ready to replace!

-Butter London Horse Power, bottle #2 is almost finished!

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

lylysa----Whats the Stila eyeshadow in kitten like? Hows the pigment/color payoff/staying power? I've read a lot of mixed reviews, some people cant live without it, and some people said that the formula breaks/cracks and thats it overhyped for what it is. Champagne shadows are my favorite and I always use them up.

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

I've never had any issues with Kitten, the individual shadow pans with a satin/shimmer finish apply beautifully. I love kitten, it applies well even without a primer and is a good staple/eye brightening shade to have.

 

I have mine in a create-your-own palette from Stila and when I had to stock up on more I found individual pans of Kitten for $1! Crazzzy cheap and a killer score!

 

They feel like the lorac single shadows, I like the texture and the finish it has!

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

Thanks for your review! I tested kitten once in store, just on my hand and the formula crumbled so easily, but it was probably sitting on the shelf for ages. I might need to get this one then! Still have 6 more products to finish for my project 10 pan though Smiley Sad
