Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

 

Hey all you cool cats and kittens, welcome to YEAR 6 of the Pan It Challenge!

 

ElleElleG_1-1672620471899.gif

 

 

 

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 πŸ˜ƒ *this is the number one recommendation for everyone, regardless of how long you’ve been panning! Those photos add up and can help you realize progress you might otherwise overlook.
  • 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.)

 

Past Panning Challenges:

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

@itsfi  Crush it completely and mix it in a pod with foundation and wear as a cream blush.  Or maybe throw some in a clear lipgloss.  

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

Ahhhh @heartsmyface!! You, my friend, always have fab ideas! πŸ’‘I do have some foundations I’m desperately wanting to work my way through and the idea of trying it as a cream blush is appealing. The lip gloss angle is also intriguing πŸ€” … says the girl with more lip glosses than she can count with her fingers … πŸ˜† 

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

@itsfi  Oh noooooo. I’m not crying you’re crying. This is so sad. I think I would put it in a small jar and pretend it’s like the Guerlain. Which shade is it? I think I have this one too. 

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

Yeah @ather, I’m crushed about it. Hahahaha! Pun not at all intended but I’m loving it! πŸ€ͺ If only I had been savvy enough to have intended it. πŸ˜† 

 

It’s tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Paaarty - I have it in varying sizes - for the longest time, it seemed like a mini was included in every Tarte gwp! I don’t really need to use it up, just sorta feeling like I should. Or at least give it a try. πŸ€”

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

@itsfi hmmm...decisions decisions. If it were me I would toss it because I am lazy haha...but maybe you can try one of your ideas and see how it goes and if it preforms the same. If you are happy with it, keep it? If you dont use it, toss it?

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

Hahaha @Mellmars1185! I’m good with lazy being a factor to consider in what to do here. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜† It would make the decision much easier too! I have a feeling I’ll go your route of trying to use it for a (short πŸ˜‚) period of time and see if that’s sustainable for me in the long haul. 

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

Ooooh yikes that's a shatter 😬

 

Follow your heart @itsfi If you want to soldier on with it you've listed ways to give it a try,  but if you don't find any happiness or excitement with it anymore maybe it's time for it to go πŸ˜‰  

 

 

 

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

Yeah @CynthieLu, this one took a beating all around. 😬 Good advice. My heart tells me to β€œmake up your mind already, itsfi!!” 🀣 I’ll decide soon - ish. Hahaha!

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

@itsfi  Oh dear, well, I don’t know if it will do well using it in a small jar with a brush. Maybe that’s the easiest if you want to keep it.  If it still brings it pleasure to wear it then try one of the ways to keep it. I would try the easiest way first.  But, if it’s not something you enjoy wearing anymore, then toss it. 

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

@Cissy63, that’s a great way to look at it. πŸ‘πŸΌ I think my wanting to keep it is more a mix of stubbornness over wanting to finish something that took me soooo long to hit pan in the first place, and guilt (that’s probably not warranted if I think long and hard about it) over tossing something. But you are right, if it’s not something I enjoy wearing I need to let it go. Making note of that, for this & other items. 

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

@itsfi -- those are all good options really, but knowing tarte blushers, I think the pearl version will get very messy fast. But it's a good shade for that treatment, not being very dark.  I'd probably either repress it, or grind it to dust and mix with a little tiny bit of face powder so it blend easy and doesn't go on too pigmented. Let us know what happens!

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

@heavyhedon, you make an excellent point about the possible likely mess!! 🀨 Blush isn’t a must have product for me (hello, easily flushed cheeks all the time!!! πŸ˜–) so the mess factor with a loose blush powder is definitely something to consider carefully.  

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

I reached my first goal today! I used or tossed 12 perfume samplers. That was my goal for that category. 

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

@Samtian Congratulations on reaching your goal ✨️

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

@Mellmars1185 Thank you!!!

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

@Samtian  Congratulations 🀩. It must feel good to reach one of your goals!

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

@Cissy63 Thank you, it definitely does!

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

Very cool, @Samtian January Achievement: unlocked!
