Pan It! - 2022 Challenge

Welcome to the Pan It Challenge, 2022 Edition!!

I'm claiming a 2022 that's greater than our wildest imaginations, also for my longtimers this will be our FIFTH YEAR doing this challenge. Thanks to all who've stuck around and everyone who's tested themselves and jumped into the madness. You all are amazing 😘

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:

Spoiler
  • 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 😃
  • 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:

Spoiler
  • 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.)

I’m extremely proud of my progress on perfume. Hanae Mori only took me 5 yrs 😂🤣 Thx you @TeamBIC for Gucci Flora. I pan it within 3 months I think.

Re: Pan It! - 2022 Challenge

@blackkitty2014, you have every reason to be proud of your progress on these fragrances. I think one is hard enough, but 3! Impressive.

Re: Pan It! - 2022 Challenge

Thx you @itsfi 🌹

Re: Pan It! - 2022 Challenge

Just 5 years sounds to pan a big bottle like like an unattainable goal to me @blackkitty2014 , but you made it!

Re: Pan It! - 2022 Challenge

Thx you @heavyhedon @ather @Samtian 🌹 I have couple bottles 5 yrs old or more. Need to work on them before they go bad 😘

That’s awesome @blackkitty2014! 👏👏👏👏

Re: Pan It! - 2022 Challenge

Thx you @Saradestin @CookieGirl1 @Mellmars1185 . I’m trying to finish another scent by the end of the year

Re: Pan It! - 2022 Challenge

@blackkitty2014 you can do it!  I love perfume so much that it doesn't feel like I'm ever forcing myself to use one up.

Re: Pan It! - 2022 Challenge

@CookieGirl1 Yes me too! I need to post my perfume on here in addition to makeup I’m trying to pan!

Re: Pan It! - 2022 Challenge

Thx you @CookieGirl1 . I feel the same too 😘

Re: Pan It! - 2022 Challenge

@blackkitty2014 there's something very satisfying about finishing a perfume (unless it's since been discontinued and you want it back!)
