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.)

May pan be ever in your favor!

I used up my nude by nature primer but my smashbox primer went bad so not as much progress as id like. That being said I did also use up the MUFE mini HD pressed powder and i kind of miss it, it was very blurring. My Elf bronzer is slowly showing more and more progress and i repressed it today since the middle portion was quite thin. The becca highlight will take me eternity and i did not touch either of the blushes.

Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

Wow you are killing it @sparklekai ! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

Oh my gosh i aspire to pan as much as you do! Keep up the good work!

Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

I am happy to report the Urban Decay Electric palette will remain in the collection because I so enjoyed splattering my eyes with all of the colors during July. I didn't pan any of the colors, but I did unexpectedly hit pan on my NARS blush. This is definitely going to be added to my 20 products to finish in 2020! 


My palette for August is the Urban Decay Heat Palette because I'm embracing the bronzed goddess look this month. This is a recent palette purchase, so I doubt it will be put in the declutter pile, but the brush that comes with it is TRASH, so that can go.

Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

Hitting pan on a blush is quite a feat. Bravo for your hard work.

RE: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

July was a good month for foils and deluxe sizes! Hoping to knock out a few things in August/September, and keep hitting the lip products hard so by this time next year (or the end of next year) i have fewer than ten lip color products!

Re: RE: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

Good job on the lip products 

Re: RE: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

@KeriCherryDee Such a good idea to cut the bottom of the tube! I have never thought of that and hate wasting the product at the bottom!



Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

Tomorrow, Tomorrow - there'll be a new blush tomorrow. It's only a day away!


So please help me pick! Thanks to all the BIC members who have helped with prior selections: @GG84  - Authentic for January, @GG84 - Skillful for February, @eshoe - Angelic for March, @ElleElleG - Exhilarating for April and both @sparklekai and @christyrc for the inspiration to use Paaarty for May, @heartsmyface - Fortunate for June and a combo of @SpaceLlama and @heartsmyface - Extraordinary for July.


A little detail about the shades I have:


Blush Update 2019-07.PNG

Tarte holiday blush bazaar top circle (at 12 o'clock) then rotating clockwise:

-Highlight - Whimsical - X Not Included X

-Angelic (peachy pink) โ€“ X March X

-Fortunate (pink melon) - X June X

-Skillful (pink berry) โ€“ X February X

-Exhilarating (fuschia) - X April X

Second circle (at 1 o'clock) then rotating clockwise:

-Endless (pink raspberry)

-Dainty (melon)

-Extraordinary (shimmering coral) - X July X

-Highlight - Worthy - X Not Included X

-Authentic (plummy rose) - X January X


-Tarte blush - Paaarty (nude) - X May X

-Bare Minerals Secret (mauve)

Wow, these past two months were actually quite disappointing. The blush was just fine but it didn't meet my expectations. I wanted Fortunate to be more orange/peach and it appeared quite pink on my skin. I was worried about the shimmer in Extraordinary because I'm more of a natural/leaning matte type of girl. With too much color the shimmer went POW! in the sun. If you like that, this would be great but just not for me. I'll likely use both in the future but wouldn't gravitate toward them if you catch my drift.


Only August, September and October left. What should I wear for the last "summer" month?

RE: Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

Hi @ShortErica sorry Iโ€™m late to the party! I definitely vote for Dainty!

Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

Dainty for sure @ShortErica !

Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

@ShortErica   I think Iโ€™m on team dainty as wellSmiley Happy 

Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

Dainty sounds great a nice bronzy apricot to warm up the cheeks 

Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

Maybe it's because you described it as "melon" coloured, but I also vote for Dainty, @ShortErica Smiley Happy sounds perfect for August! 

Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

@ShortErica  i vote for dainty!!!

Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

@ShortErica  my vote is for Dainty.

Re: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

@emaisgr8 @sparklekai @SpaceLlama Dainty it is! The melon description is how Tarte described it on the box so hopefully it lives up to the claim vs. my June and July colors which didn't seem to match how their pans appeared.

RE: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

Iโ€™m in the middle of packing and getting ready to move but I wanted to do a quick lil update. Iโ€™ve officially finished the Becca creme highlight and the ambient lighting palette! Now I can move onto the Burtโ€™s bees highlight stick and the full-size ambient lighting powder in ethereal light.

Re: RE: Pan It! - 2019 Challenge!

Congrats on those pans, @Kaylabr !! That's amazing progress Smiley Happy
