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.)

Ooo what are your thoughts on Magic Diamonds? Iโ€™ve considered buying it a few times because the description mentions white musk and warmth (which I like) but then itโ€™s categorized under โ€œfresh floralsโ€ on Sephoraโ€™s product page. Which one do you think it leans towards? @blackkitty2014 

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†

@Guessgal i received this as a gratis but I also own another 3 full size of Magic line. Itโ€™s nice and light so you will have to reapply every 3-4 hrs. For full price itโ€™s a bit pricey but for 50% off I donโ€™t mind to own couple. Beside this I have Sparkling Secret, Dancing Rose and Salty Flower. I quite like them. Theyโ€™re light and fresh so itโ€™s easy to wear.๐Ÿ˜˜ PS I think itโ€™s lean toward Fresh Floral. I can detect the musk but itโ€™s light (at least to my nose)

I didnโ€™t stick to planning in 2020 but this year I am planning to pan these:AE0E479F-21D0-4EEF-815D-19C636A24E88.jpeg

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†

@Serenely the fact that you thought about panning/got started last year is still a win in my book!

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†

@Serenely What is that honey thing?

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†

@Serenely, what a great collection of base makeup to work on panning! ๐Ÿ˜ Love that NARS concealer! 

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†

@Serenely Sounds doable, Good luck!

Re: Pan It! - 2021 Challenge ๐Ÿ†

Okie ladies 2021 starts out pretty good. 


Mini YSL took me forever so it was a surprise to finish it on Jan 1


Tom Ford Pink Sand cream blush: I was working on this since last year but I forgot to post. I hit pan today Jan 2 and planning on finish it within 1-3 months
