Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†

Welcome to the 2021 Pan It Challenge !!



HUGE round of applause for the 2020 Panners ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ Despite an incredibly hectic year I couldn't be more proud of each and every one of you who spent even a second thinking about your projects.  It was a huge inspiration for me and I'm sure others as well.  Cannot wait to see your new projects and whatever this year has in store for us!


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.)

Quarterly update. These are taking forever, I'm starting to get angry at them lol. I might just switch it to one so I go through it faster.

  Five by Fall!


 Fall 2021 starts on Wednesday, September 22, 2021 and I'm definitely looking forward to cooler weather and less lawn mowing. Starting today I'll be adding a seasonal 5 product side project to my other line-up.


 This will be a rolling pan based on usage (5 before Fall) so anytime I hit the 5 uses on an item, I'll post an update then add in a new item. There's nothing I need to use up that isn't already being panned, but I like seasonal pans that help me rotate through my collection, and a few of my fave Beautubers do something like this every year. Feel free to join (calling @itsfi !) and to change the uses however you need to make this work for you & be fun. 


Note: As I was picking through my stash to find products that I consider summery but underused lately, a color theme developed, so I went with it!


All the goodies!All the goodies!


First 5:   Avon Glazewear Summer Sheers lipgloss in Sheer Royalty

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†

@heavyhedon Sounds like a great idea! 

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†

@heavyhedon, thank you so much for the tag. I have 4 of the 5 items picked out. Will get that 5th one decided on soon and post my 5 before Fall. ๐Ÿ˜ Your choices are great and it will be awesome to see your progress! ๐Ÿ‘Š

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†



   Excited to see your choices! This will be fun.

Late June Update:


 No visible progress on my palette (TF White Chocolate Chip mini) or the highlighter, UD Sin (trial size).


 I was making good strides with the Hourglass GIRL Lip Stylo Futurist mini, till we had a very hot day and it broke in the tube. I scraped it into a small container, and now it's going slower, since that shade is just easier to use with an applicator. 


empty tubeempty tubea fair amount of Futurist left to usea fair amount of Futurist left to use


Then a few days ago, my Dirty Little Secrets Blush in Kitty Pink got knocked around on the counter, and it shattered inside the closed container. I've repressed it, and probably it won't take long to finish now:


Kitty Pink, going fast.Kitty Pink, going fast.


That's all for now, haven't decided whether to add a "summer" item in yet.


Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†

@heavyhedon, this is incredible!!! 

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†

Thank you @FullCoverageBB -- I'm excited to make some space in my blush storage especially. 

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†

@heavyhedon Wow I applaud you for re-potting the lip stylo instead of parting ways with it! I like your perseverance!๐Ÿ™Œ I'm trying to finish up a cream blush of mine (I mainly use it as an eyeshadow tho). It's slow going but I'll probably end up posting it on the Empties thread ๐Ÿ˜

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†

@Guessgal Thanks! I really do like the color, even though I have several similar shades. Can't have enough nudes. Maybe if I keep a lip brush on my desk, I'll use that stylo-pot more. 

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†

@heavyhedon, thatโ€™s a bummer about the lippie and blush but excellent work repairing them! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ You will be hitting pan soon enough! Oh, summer panning sounds like a good idea. Will try to look through my stash this weekend for an item or two. 

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†

@itsfi -- I'm still trying to decide mine and better hurry, I guess!

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†

@heavyhedon, we're in the same boat. I made an attempt this past weekend to cull through my stash but I didn't come up with a concrete plan. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†

@itsfi -- it's such an up & down year/season etc. Normally I'd have picked up a little tan, & be going places to wear all my colors I can't wear without a little tan. That's just not happening.


 Thinking maybe I'll do a five by fall, with a set number of times to use said item by fall. 

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†

@heavyhedon, I think I may join you in that endeavor. I pulled out some products to consider and was thinking about trying to finish by end of October. I like your 5 by fall idea a lot! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Will pick 5 out of the things I set aside.

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†

๐Ÿ‘Bravo @heavyhedon 

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†

@blackkitty2014 -- aw, thanks. I hope to have more progress shortly. 

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†

@blackkitty2014, impressive progress! Those last bits of TF bronzer and blush seem like they take forever but you'll be at the end in no time!!

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†

@blackkitty2014 Wowza! What incredible progress!
