Pan It! - 2021 Challenge πŸ†

Welcome to the 2021 Pan It Challenge !!



HUGE round of applause for the 2020 Panners πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎ 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 aren’t making a dent in anything look back at those photos, I’m certain you’ll see some changes πŸ˜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 you’re not fond of).
  • Have shadows with a ton of fall out?  Use water
  • Watching the progress of others’ can be fun but try not compare your progress to theirs.  We all use our makeup differently and have different goals.
  • Don’t restrict yourself to only using the item(s) you are working on.  It’s more than OK to incorporate other items or take a break!
  • Makeup should be fun….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 don’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.)

Thx you @heavyhedon πŸŒΉ

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge πŸ†

@blackkitty2014, WHOA!!! Look at all of that progress 😍. So proud! You're very inspiring. ❀️ 

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge πŸ†

Thx you @FullCoverageBB πŸŒΉ

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge πŸ†

These are amazing, @blackkitty2014! I love how you use everything up!

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge πŸ†

Thx you @curlychiquita πŸŒΉ

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge πŸ†

Excellent work, as always @blackkitty2014! That blush and bronzer are going to be done in no time! I'm going to pick up Chanel Blooms Chance - you've convinced me. πŸ˜‰ Just have to decide whether to order it online or go into the store. Both can be dangerous. lol. 

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge πŸ†

Call the store before you go in @itsfi . As I remember, Chance, Dream and Opportunity are sold out over Nordstrom. I still see them over other retailers. The hardest shade to track down is Opportunity but it’s still on Chanel site.

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge πŸ†

Thank you @blackkitty2014! I've taken your advice. 😘 They'll be here before I originally planned to purchase them, but they would have ended up here eventually anyways. More beauties to pan. πŸ˜‚

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge πŸ†

What the heck is this crazy bug with attaching pictures 😑


All the full-size are sold but I won’t repurchase since I have so many other similar items I need to work on. The only exception is TF Dorothy lipstick. I accidentally ordered 2 πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ so 1 more to go

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge πŸ†

@blackkitty2014 At least it's a pretty color haha. Great work!!

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge πŸ†

@Samtian I feel so dumb πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge πŸ†

@blackkitty2014 hahaha there are worse things you could have gotten instead!

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge πŸ†

I have been working on a project pan since March. Really trying to focus on getting use/using up some products that are nearing expiration and May roll some into next year to continue to work on.

Products as follows:



β€’Nudestix tinted cover- goal to finish by year end. I began marking the last two months to see progress. Last mark is end of June. 

β€’Dior concealer- goal to use half by year end. Love this one and using several times a week. Getting close to half way!

β€’Bobby Brown corrector- goal to hit pan by year end. Started basically new and have a dip going. 

β€’Charlotte Tilbury contour wand- goal to use up by year end. Been using this 3+ Per weekly and making great progress! Looove this product so much!

β€’Hourglass blush- goal to hit pan by year end. Using this 3+ times per week and hoping to hit pan by year end but no dip yet. Use this very consistently.

β€’Ilia loose powder- goal to use half. I’m using this very consistently.

β€’Anastasia brow powder- started with a very small pan. Goal to make this a larger pan which I did and just to use a few times a week as this product didn’t get use for a while.

Thanks everyone for your updates, love reading other project panner updates!


Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge πŸ†

@BluePaisley You picked some great items to pan. That Bobby Brown corrector has its days numbered. I'm looking forward to seeing your progress. 

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge πŸ†

@BluePaisley I can't wait to see the progress you make!

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge πŸ†

@BluePaisley @I’m not gonna lie. Hit pan on blusher is hard. But no worry you will get there. I’m cheering for you

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge πŸ†

I know blush is hard to pan and I’m up for the challenge. This is one of my fav blushes so it’s not hard to reach for it. Just trying to increase how much while still using some newer blushes- so many coming out right now and I love trying blush!. Thanks for the encouragement.

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge πŸ†

WOW!! What amazing progress! You're practically there! @BluePaisley 

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge πŸ†

@FullCoverageBB @thank you!

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge πŸ†

@BluePaisley, these are spectacular products for project pan! I see so much great work by you. I saw pan on your ABH powder and was super excited!!! Woohoo! 😁 I'm glad to hear you like the Dior concealer; I picked one up recently after hearing some raves for it.  

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge πŸ†

Thank you so much! I’ve already used an entire ABH duo before, they are so good and so glad to hit pan. Dior concealer is wonderful- don’t think I’ll ever be without it or the nars creamy! I picked to pan products that I really enjoy to use! I hope you love the Dior!
