Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿพ Hi All!


Can y'all believe 2019 is literally knocking on the door??  Given its proximity it's high time we get the 2019 Panning Challenge Rolling.


The "Rules"

To accommodate a variety of interests, you all are encouraged to pick items to pan that are most suitable to your collections.  For some, this might mean focusing on a particular type of product (like lipstick) and for others this may include a larger variety spanning your entire makeup or skincare routine.


Getting Started (please share the following)

  • Which item(s) you would like to work on
  • How long you will work on said item
  • Goal: explore a new item, revisit an old item, decide whether to keep pass or trash, and/or completely finish item, etc.
  • Starting photo of item


Please Use This Thread To...

  • share what item(s) you are working on,
  • provide comparative progress photos of your item(s) monthly (at the beginning of the month when possible),
  • ask questions,
  • encourage others,
  • motivate others with the looks you create with your item(s)


Tips and Tricks to Panning/Getting Some Use Out of Your Stash:

  • Take photos!!  When you think you arenโ€™t making a dent in anything look back at those photos, Iโ€™m certain youโ€™ll see some changes ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  • If you goal is to hit pan or use something up entirely, try concentrating your brush/applicator in the same area each time you use it
  • Multitask your products: eyeshadows as highlighter, lipstick as blush, eyeshadow as brow powder, etc. 
  • Layer eyeshadow to create different colors (this is especially helpful to get use out of shades youโ€™re not fond of).
  • Have shadows with a ton of fall out?  Use water
  • Watching the progress of othersโ€™ can be fun but try not compare your progress to theirs.  We all use our makeup differently and have different goals.
  • Donโ€™t restrict yourself to only using the item(s) you are working on.  Itโ€™s more than OK to incorporate other items or take a break!
  • Makeup should be funโ€ฆ.if you begin to dread doing your makeup because you made a commitment to use a product that you now hate, TOSS IT!  Do not force yourself to use up something you donโ€™t like.  Move on to something else!  (This includes excluding particular shades from your goals if focusing on palettes, etc.)


Ideas to Help You Pan Those Items:

  • Roll the dice: number your items and use a random number generator to pick what you will use each (day/week/month/etc.) 
  • Layer/Mask: items you are less fond of under things you like
  • Pan a Look: at the beginning of the week pick a look that you can wear everyday
  • Recreate: a look worn by a fellow BICer, celebrity, etc.
  • Spice up an "everyday" look by adding subtle pops of color (in the crease or on the lower lash line, mix lip products to make shades wearable, etc.)


Past Panning Challenges:



May pan be ever in your favor!

Since I used up my elf bronzer I rolled in the Becca Sunrise Waves Bronzer so i can use that up

- Nars Duo: I may repress this into one pan as im only wearing it mixed together and never separately 

- Becca Moonstone: I love this but progress in minimal as im not wearing it too often

- Col-Lab Concealer: Finally i see how much i have left. I took out the topper and pushed all the product down to see where i was and im half way done. I think this is actually an amazing concealer so im using it before it goes bad

-Mac Brave and Velvet Teddy: I started using Velvet Teddy as a cream blush about a month ago and im in love with the tine especially when i want a monochromatic look. Brave is going slowly.

- Cover FX stick: I scraped this back into the tube as I found i wasnt using it if it was in the pan. This will be here for ages, I dont find i reach for this much in general.

Ive seen no progress on my fenty foundation, smashbox palette, bang beauty blush or anything else not pictured. I need to work through all this first before I can make progress on anything else so im hoping next update is better. 



Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

@PaulinaAP Great job on panning all of these Smiley Happy




Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

another month - another late update!  i always take pictures the 1st day of the month but for some reason posting procrastination is real!!!  so here is where i am with the products i'm working on right now.  i'm at the point where i'm torn between wanting to be done with most of these and wanting to keep going.  



the test subject

my darling heat wave is so close to being finished...kinda...really it was just so close to the edges and the pan that it was getting increasingly difficult to get a brush to pick up product so i scraped as much as i could and repressed it into the empty compact from the bronzer i finished.  not sure how well it will hold up but we'll find out!

Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

Pur blush - I've had this blush since April. of this year.  I noticed it only had a 6 month expiration from point of opening. This was a beautiful shade of pink and worked great in the summer. I'm surprised it was just the right amount. Unfortunately it is now starting to expire and I notice it in the performance and will be tossing it. 

Fenty Brow Pencil - I purchased this in Aug/Sept and have been using it everyday. I'm very glad I tried it, however, I'll be going back to my trusty Anastasia Brow Wiz. 

My next pan it project will be: 1) the Anastasia Subculture palette--I really want to get use out of it before it expires.  I've only used it a few times since I purchased. 





Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

Natasha Denona mini sunset: Used this almost exclusively all summer. The last shade on the right is panned although very hard to see in the pics. Looking at the pics it's hard to tell I've used it much at all. The right shade is very loose and soft compared to the rest. 


Lorac POTC blush: I am sad this one is coming to a close! I can't believe I panned a highlighter in it. At the beginning of the year only the bold spirit sparkle topper was faintly panned. 


Natasha Denona blush and glow: I loved this blush for summer. I am setting aside the highlighter and have another full one of these I'm working the blush on but will probably transition to other hues over the winter. 


Viseart theory nuance: I'll likely work this more over the winter. 


Lorac pro: I want to grab this out more for winter also. This year I panned medallion and worked down pink nude, the rest had already been finished. 




Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

@CC3616 Good job! I wish my ABH subculture palette looked half as close as that Lorac  Although it's my favorite one from ABH, I have a love-hate relationship with it because some of the shades are naughty and won't blend.  But I've spent the money on it and don't want it to go to waste. lol. 

Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

Amazing!  Good job.  @CC3616  Such a satisfying feeling. 

Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

@CC3616 Wow so much panning goodness here!! Great job on all of it. Itโ€™s so hard to pan one thing let alone all these Smiley Happy

Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

@CC3616 Such great palette choices! Great job on hitting pan on so many shades. 




Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

Thank you @RebeccaBT and @trishavt!! These lovely items made it easy to use them up!

RE: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

Iโ€™ve hit that stage on a few items where they seem to magically regenerate overnight and they WILL. NOT. END. But progress is progress and I know by this time next year I will have so many things finished! September 2019 Empties: -Lush Blousey shampoo 240 g/8.4 oz -Laura Mercier Lip Glacรฉ in Baby Doll 2.8 g/0.1 oz -Living Proof T.B.D. Multi-tasking Styler 30 ml/1 fl oz -Ouai Haircare Volume Conditioner foil 7 ml/0.24 oz -destashed: a whole bunch of nail polishes (Zoya full-sizes and LA Colors minis) โ€” theyโ€™re separating, the formulas started getting thick and clumpy quite a while ago, and neither of these brands stay on my nails without chipping on like day 3 no matter how much I prep. My sister left her nail polishes here (a couple of Essie and OPI) and she hardly ever does her nails so Iโ€™ll just use hers as I trial and error what brand(s) and formulas will actually stay on my nails without so much issue. Plus I changed jobs and I should probably stick to lighter and/or sheer, neutral and natural shades rather than the mix of super brights and super vampy darks I previously had

Re: RE: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

@KeriCherryDee  Lol thatโ€™s how I felt about things like gloss but keep at it! Eventually it will pan Smiley Happy

Re: RE: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

Lip glosses are so hard @KeriCherryDee ! There were a couple posted last week in the empties thread and I was wowed. 

Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

I know I said that I would give a 2nd week update, but my mental state is just hectic lately. Today is the first day in a while I've felt okay. Good news: I hit pan on one of my items! Your โค๏ธs on my post have kept me going. Thank you. ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

@joragroy  no worries. Itโ€™s good to hear from ppl whenever they get the chance to update the thread so Iโ€™m glad you were able to share an update with us. Congrats on the pan and hope your day gets better! Smiley Happy

Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

@trishavt Thank you so much. ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

Hang in there @joragroy I hope things settle for you soon! Also congrats on hitting pan!! 

Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

@ElleElleG Thank you, your support is everything!

Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

Ive been making some great progress on panning these two Tom Ford items. One of the TF Seductive Rose quad that I started using back in 2017. Ive been regularly using it this past year and Ive still got plenty more to go. The other is a Tom Ford Cream and Shadow Color in Peach. Its such a pretty color and the top coat is a nice glittery finish. Its definitely one of my favorite items. IMG_8078.jpgIMG_8081.jpgIMG_8082.jpg

Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

Love that quad @trishavt , nice work.
