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.

Maybelline The Rocket Mascara

Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express


My Maybelline Great Lash in Clear that I use for a brow gel is about to be tossed, too.  I wonder if Walgreens is running a BOGO half off this week lol.

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan


- Immortelle foamy cleanser: it's ok, one more half size to do and I'm done. Not a fan.

- Caudalie Cleansing water: last of two, finally done, will not miss it.

- Korres Wild Rose Sleeping Facial: not bad.

- Miracle Skin Transformer SPF20: aww, my first primer, finally done.

- Caudalie eye&lip cream: mom likes it, noted to replenish later when she finished her tube.

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

I promised myself that I wouldn't photograph and show off my progress until the worst of my vampire products was in my little Nordie's bag of finished products. It's still not- but it's close!


However... my bag of stuff to update this thread with is almost full, so I had to share!  I'll also be starting large shopping bag of finished products #2 with this batch!


(As a refresher- I'm collecting all of my finished and expired products in 2013 to really see how much I use over the course of a year.)

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

Woo-hoo! Worst vampire product in my current rotation (I just couldn't kill it!) is finally gone.

Bobbi Brown Everyday Mascara (loved this, finished it)

Diorshow Mascara (finished)

Philosophy Living Grace- 1ox

Assorted packets.



2x makeup wipes packets

Clean and Clear Body Wash

Philosophy Happy Birthday Darling

Boots Body Wash- Lemon

Old Navy Body Wash

Nivea Bodywash

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

It's kind of crazy to think that I'll be using a different primer for the first time in over a year tomorrow!

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

And I'm more than halfway done with a Project 30 Pan for body wash...

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

I've got SO MANY body washes, so I've been using up my tiny travel sizes of Bath and Body Works body wash. In the past week, I've used up a lemon vanilla and berry vanilla. I think I have a few more of those before I make my way to my 30+ Philosophy shower gels. I love them so much; it's so difficult NOT to collect them all!

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

I feel your pain. I had a serious Bath & Body Works addiction prior to my current Sephora addiction Smiley Very Happy I probably have around 50-70 shower gels/creams to use up! Trying really hard to empty house on a bunch of things before I buy a house and move!

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

Same here.. I'm moving this summer and I'm dreading it. With my last move, I had two full large tote bins full of body, beauty, and bath products. I've gone through and thrown so much out without even attempting to use some of it up. I have 20+ B&BW body sprays that have either never been used or have at least 75% left in them. I find a scent that I like and I buy it, but I never really seem to use it. I can't wear fragrances at the hospital and when I go out, I tend to lean towards perfume rather than a body spray. I need to find a teenage girl to gift them all too!

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

It's odd, but I find it crazy therapeutic emptying things out. I'm finally starting to declutter my bathroom cabinets and bins which lets me de-clutter other parts of my house!


What type of work do you do in the hospital?

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

Find a women's shelter. Most of them will take slightly used cosmetics & body products. 

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

Yay! I finished stuff!

Clinique lotion - meh. It always come in GWP from Clinique

Soap&Glory righteous butter - nice butter, too sweet/candy/fruity for me.

Bliss Fabulous SPF15 - pretty nice. It's creamy but sinks in well for summer.

Caudalie beauty elixir - my addiction, just got a new one, yay!

Alba Botanica sea enzyme scrub - pretty good, but not fantastic. I need to finish my half tube of Clinique before I can move onto new ones.

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

Nice!  How do you use the Caudalie beauty elixir?

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

Me too! I was thinking about getting a smaller size in the fall for an after cleanser spritz for hydration

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

I love it. Altho I'm not ashamed to admit it's most cuz I love the scent. This is like a "perfume" you can safely spritz everywhere and breathe in (while I'd be paranoid about chemicals with a real perfume).


To be completely honest, if you don't care about the scent, there are other good options like Caudalie grape water (scent less) and...I haven't tried other spraying toner. =/

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

Ahh so hard for me to finish stuff since im always trying something new. 

Currently hit pan on

- LM powder fdn (already have backup)

- UD abc gum e/s (already have a backup)


Ive finished an age rewind concealer already and a clinique travel size gel moisturizer, small travel size of origins ginzing eye cream..

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

I finished off another Sephora lip liner.  I need to get a replacement next time I'm at the mall.

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

I love this thread... I totally feel like it is a major accomplishment when I finish a product and am so excited to get a fresh and sometimes new one. Most of the time I don't let the product finish completely before getting a replacement because I cant go without lol. I just ordered a new Cover FX Cream Foundation because I don't even have a days worth of it left and I also ordered the new Kat Von D Lock it Powder Foundation. I was using MUF Pro Powder Foundation and it still has a bit but I can see the silver bottom and i'm always afraid to carry it in my make up bag for fear of it shattering.

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

Finished products (yay) and throwing away products (boo).

Biore 4-in-1 foamy cleanser: awesome for getting off dirt, oil and make up, so awesome that it's really drying, too drying even as hand cleanser, so I use it to clean brushes and empty jars etc.

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum: can't get enough of this stuff.

Aromachologie volumizing shampoo from L'occitane: it's natural so doesn't foam much, feels nice and smells nice.

Bliss Oxygen+C gel cream: very runny gel with expiration date of 6 month. Too short for me, didn't finish last summer and it turned nasty this summer so I have to throw out the little puddle left.

C.O. Bigalow Rosemary+Mint lotion: looooove the scent and refreshing feeling. It's my second bottle but....whenever I have 1/4 left, the pump always break. =/


Lola eye/face/lip set: my first set of make up from HS. awww. I actually used about half of everything except for the blushes, but now they don't even last 5min on me and applies clumpy.

Clinique Stay Matte: it's 7 yrs old and the only powder where I actually hit the pan.

Physician's Formula blush/bronzer/powder: all of them 5+yrs old and have hardened/doesn't apply easily. The powder doesn't do anything any more so that's out, the bronzer is so yellow on me and doesn't last so that's also out, and the blush.........ok, I'm not gonna use it but it's pretty so I'm keeping it.


Anyways, out with the used/old. Hopefully I'll have made significant progress through my beauty stash by the end of the summer, but considering the fact I kept placing orders during the summer..... >.<

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

I think that for every new colored makeup item I add to my collection, I need to get rid of at least one. Those Physician's Formula blush and bronzer are too darn cute though! Smiley Happy

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

Heh, since I try lots of new things last yr without finishing them, it seems like I'm finishing all of them this yr, still got a couple left....

Clinique Toner 2

Body Shop Pink Grapefruit scrub <3

BBW body lotion

Josie Maran Argan oil

Ren glycolic peel

Origins Brighter by Nature spf35

100 cotton rounds, Hourglass primer, and Clarins body moisturizer

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

Oh gosh.....its been awhile since I've posted here. I used up my Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in Birthday Suit, my Cover Girl Clump Crusher Mascara Smiley Very Happy

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

and my mini buxom lip cream in white russian

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan

I'm completely out of my Benefit Hello Flawless! Pressed Powder. I've had this thing for about 3 or 4 years and I just finished it yesterday.

Re: Finished Products and Hitting Pan
