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 arenโ€™t making a dent in anything look back at those photos, Iโ€™m certain youโ€™ll see some changes ๐Ÿ˜ƒ *this is the number one recommendation for everyone, regardless of how long youโ€™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 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:

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

After some serious hemming and hawwing over what to to with the tarte Paaarty blush, I've finally come to a decision. @heartsmyface suggested turning the powder into a cream blush or a lip gloss. I thought about splitting the broken blush into two piles and making both a cream blush and a lip gloss. Then reality set in - I'm not going to reach for it as a cream blush despite really liking that idea. But a lip gloss, or a lip product?! Ohhh, I'm more likely to not only reach for it, but to make progress on using it up. There it is, decision made. Thank you to everyone who offered up suggestions - so many great ideas that I've made notes of. Thank you, hearts! 
 
And here are the before and after photos. Going to add this one to my 2023 project pan as well. Seems fitting since the actual tarte Paaarty blush was part of my first panning project.

Goal: use it up! I'm holding onto the pan for the blush; I hope to be able to post it later this year in the empties thread when I work through this diy tinted lip balm.

Nice!!!

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

Thank you @Krismorganj! Itโ€™s been getting good use too! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ 

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

@itsfi That looks like a gorgeous shade!  What did you use as the base for the gloss?

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

It really came out beautifully @missjeanie! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I used a mini Laneige lip sleeping mask, in the mint choco flavor. The tinted balm smells deliciously of mint chocolate. I wouldnโ€™t say โ€œnoโ€ to a lip balm right now - so cold and my lips are dry practically all the time - and I definitely wonโ€™t say โ€œnoโ€ to this diy tinted lip balm! ๐Ÿ˜ 

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

Funny you say that @itsfi ... I need another tinted balm like a hole in the head... but I happened to notice that you'd reviewed the new SC tinted balms ( I knew it was you as soon as I saw the photo!)... Have you tried the new Lawless ones yet?  Curious which of those two you'd prefer?

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

Who me? Tried the new Lawless?? Ummm, what would make you think such a thing @missjeanie ?! ๐Ÿคฃ Both are nice; the Sephora Collection has more of a traditional tinted lip balm consistency. The Lawless feels more like a oil-balm hybrid. Both can be built up but the Lawless is much more sheet; the Sephora Collection has deeper, richer pigmentation. The color range of the Lawless lean more MLBB where the shade range for the Sephora Collection has more nude colors. Of the two, my preference is for the SEPHORA COLLECTION Sheer Matte Lip Balm.

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

@itsfi Lol... I knew you'd be able to enable me!!  The SC are such a steal.. may need to grab two to test... for science!

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

Of course you have to grab at least 2 @missjeanie! At least 2. What better way to make sure the line is solid and itโ€™s not just one color that is good. At least 2. ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

@itsfi  Ouhhh nice!  I turned out quite well and you can soon say you truly used it all up!!  Yay!!!  

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

Yes, and all thanks to you @heartsmyface! Thank you so much! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

@itsfi that's a great way to repurpose that blush!  

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

It is @CookieGirl1! Iโ€™m all but assured of finishing it now. 

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

@itsfi  this is such a great idea to use/reuse a product and not waste! I love it, and it seems like your repurpose project worked really well!

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

@caitbird, I try to repurpose my stuff if I can, unless it breaks me out, and even then, I'll try to use it on another part of my body, if I can. I feel like I have to at least try to repurpose it.

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

Wow!! I would of never thought to do that!! @itsfi 

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

We have the smart and lovely @heartsmyface to thank for this @lmaster!

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

@itsfi  Congratulations ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. It makes a pretty lippie!

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

@Cissy63, thank you. It really is such a pretty lip color.

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

@itsfi Ooh that looks pretty! 

Re: Pan It! - 2023 Challenge

Thank you @Samtian! I used the mini mint choco Laneige flavor and it smells so good too!
