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.

Katie---There might not be much product in the pan. I remember using up my Benefit Hello Flawless powder foundation in a month or less as well...I hate it when companies are stingy with product but the price is up there!


I finished my Lancome Dual Finish Powder Foundation in Porcelaine I today Smiley Sad


I dont think I have any more foundations....I have one but its way too dark so I'm saving it for summer. I need face makeup! buy Smiley Sad

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

I have so many products, I wouldn't even know where to beGin.  do you guys  chose items mostly already gone and then add more as it goes along?

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

I pick item that are almost done/easy to finish then focus on that, then repeat. altho I like doing it proj 10 pan style: pick 10 items that I'm almost done with, then cross them off as I'm done. Then I pick another 10 and so on. Or that's how I plan to do it. I'm at 4/10 for my first attempt. Almost done with 2 of them, but the other 2 (masks) might take a while since I haven't had time to do skincare.

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

makeupobsessed-----I get bored picking 10 things and using just those everyday, so I just use whatever I want and as I use things up I write them down and form a list. For 10 pan every time I used up an item completely I came on here and wrote it down. Seeing that list increase gives me the boost I need to keep going and finish what I started. Right now I'm doing the 5 pan (for makeup only) and whenever I use up a makeup item, any makeup item, I go back to the thread and write it down. That way I know what I used up and how much more I need to use up to complete my 5 pan. You dont have to use items that are almost empty, but if you have a hard time using things up, it can give you the confidence you need. I've thought about doing a skincare only 10 pan, but I'm putting that off.


Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

I'm doing something a little odd by most standards- for 2013, I have a shopping bag dedicated to empties- from makeup to skincare to finished sample packets, body washes. etc.  I want to see just how much I consume in a "typical" year so I can monitor my spending in the future.

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

Smart idea! Thanks for sharing your idea.. I just might do that as well.

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

I know it's weird, but I've been doing the same thing too. I've been keeping a little notebook on my vanity where I write everything I finish up. I really want to know just how much I spend on beauty products for a year- it's adding up much more quickly than I expected. 

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

This just might be my absolute favorite thread on BT Smiley Very Happy

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

This is such a good idea! Mac Studio Fix Fluid in NC15.. Loved this. But, won't be repurchasing. You can't tell in the picture but it is completely gone, I can't get anything out of it.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full Coverage Foundation. I probably have 5 or so uses left of this.. sad day when this runs out. Not sure if I'll repurchase or not.

Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Waterproof Concealor. Freaking love this. Will repurchase ASAP. Cannot live without.

Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Face Primer. Seriously cannot get anymore product out. Loved it, but probably won't repurchase. I like my benefit porefessional more. Maybe will repurchase in the winter when I need more moisture.

Benefit Porefessional. 5-6 uses left. Going to die without this product so will repurchase asap.

MAC Moisturecover Concealer. Love this concealer as well and might repurchase. Great under eye concealer. Probably will repurchase next time i'm in a mac store.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural. Cannot get anymore off of this. It was okay. My skin is too dry for this right now. Makes it look cakey. Maybe will repurchase when my skin is more oily. I love my hourglass powder in dim light now so I won't repurchase this for now.

Benefit Hoola. Probably won't repurchase. I want to buy NARS laguna next or Too faced milk chocolate or maybe a cargo bronzer. Which would anyone suggest for lighter skintone? Not looking for very dark.

Origins Make A Difference Plus moisturizer. It has a different scent that I'm guessing a lot of people won't like but it really grew on me. I used every single drop of this that I could get out and I am so sad it's gone. Probably will repurchase.

Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream. I think I am going to die without this.. Already my third pot of this so I will definitely buy a fourth. The packaging is also so nice! Glass and a very nice lid. Love love.


Also some that I already threw away the packaging....

NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base. Love. Already repurchased. Will not go a single day without that primer.

Urban Decay Lush Lash Mascara It was alright. Probably won't repurchase. Alrady purchased Diorshow Waterproof and I love that WAY more.


I think that's about it.. Man I need to go shopping... LOL Smiley Happy
