12 Pans of Christmas – Skincare Edition UPDATE/FINALE!

I wanted to update you on how I did on my 12 pans of Christmas Project I started at the beginning of November. This project brought together a LOT of people across platforms and it was so interesting to see what items everyone put into their projects.

Im pleased to say that I finished a majority of the items I put into this project, with the exception of exfoliators. I usually can get thru samples of exfoliators fairly quick, but this  last months colder weather has brought me unusually dry skin, so its easy to see why Im not exfoliating as often.

I havent even opened up the Hanalei packet of exfoliating packs, but Im certain that the Skin Inc and Real Chemistry samples only have one use left.

Even though I did not finish these items, I will still consider this project a success. I was able to finish a lot of the older items in my collection and can now focus on some of the skincare Ive received more recently.

MakeUp Use Up Update #1

I apologize for not having any posts last week. I caught whatever bug was going around and couldn’t hit the Publish button.

If you havent been following along, here is my original post describing what products I plan on using up this year. MakeUp Use Up 2017

The products I was able to finish were:

  • BareMinerals Mineral Veil (deluxe)
  • BareMinerals Lash Domination (both samples)
  • Powerlash Mascara
  • Elf Liquid Liner
  • Eyeko Fat Liner
  • Eyeko Liner
  • Palladio Liner
  • Chella Eyebrow pencil in Tantalizing Taupe

The products I decluttered were:

  • Beautique Lip Crayon (too frosty on my lips)
  • Covergirl Lip Liner in Raisin (dried out)

I have hit pan on Foxy in my Urban Decay Naked basics palette and have moved on to WOS. I am also using Venus as a brow highlight as well as inner corner highlight.

I also have good progress on my LOC shadow stick and the BareMinerals 5 in one cream eyeshadows.

Im pretty pleased with my progress so far, but the rest of the products will be a bit slower to finish than some of the ‘gimmes’ I put into this project.  Im hoping to update again the beginning of July.

 

 

 

Successfully Completed my First Project!

On January 13th, I posted my ‘9 Samples to Spring Project’ (See here if you missed it: http://www.justsheilz.wordpress.com/2017/01/13/9-samples-to-spring-project-pan ) and I am happy to report that I have finished all of the products!

This was a small project but for my first true panning project, it was a great experience. I will say that I found it difficult to finish the ROC neck cream because I hated the scent and Im glad that its gone but I was pleasantly pleased with the progress I made on everything else I included.

Has anyone else recently jumped into panning? If so, how are you doing?

A new job and a new posting schedule

I am very excited because earlier this week, I started working at a new job! I am now a Receptionist at an upscale spa! Its been a couple of years since I have been employed, so its almost like a new experience for me.

For the time being, I will be posting only on Fridays until I can settle into the new routine – however, this upcoming Tuesday I will be posting my project pan finale!
