Pan It! - 2024 Challenge

Welcome to Year 7 of our Pan It! Challenge ElleElleG_0-1704168084184.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:

  • 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 😃 *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:

  • 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.)

Re: Pan It! - 2024 Challenge

Oh my goodnes, that’s fantastic @Cissy63! Great work! 👍🏼 Were there any products you loved or would pick up in a full size?

Re: Pan It! - 2024 Challenge

@itsfi  Thanks!  Actually several were Sephora face masks/ eye masks that needed to get used before they expired.  And many were already repurchases.   And several DDG Universal Alpha/Beta peels sets.  And I have already bought another box.  I really like these pads.  The Glamglow oxygenated face mask I will not be repurchasing.  I don’t like it☹️.  It’s something about the bubbling that turns me off.  And the Huda Beauty Wishful Yo Glow I didn’t care for how it exfoliated my skin.  So some winners and some losers.   But not everything can work for everyone!

Re: Pan It! - 2024 Challenge

A huge congratulations to you! Great work @Cissy63 🎊

Foils can get a little out of control, it's gotta feel good to have finished them. 😃

Re: Pan It! - 2024 Challenge

@CynthieLu  Thank you very much!  Yes, the little packs due tend to grow😉

Re: Pan It! - 2024 Challenge

March update




Now the vanilla mocha is about 75% gone.
I might have to pause on the Josie Maran body butter because from what I hear the new reformulation is much thinner, and I love the consistency in the older version, so I may need to hoard it for a bit 🤣

Re: Pan It! - 2024 Challenge

@lmaster 😂😂😂 great progress! 

Re: Pan It! - 2024 Challenge

Thank you lovely! @jaaayp
