Project Pan 2014

Hey everybody, I’m back from a couple of weeks of hard working! This past few weekend I had the opportunity of visiting my parents in a very very short trip I had to make. I really enjoyed it, but If I am honest with you I am very very tired, maybe it was the lack of sleep lol. But anyways today I wanted to talk about my new and beloved PROJECT PAN, I did one of these some time ago and while cleaning my makeup stuff a couple of weeks ago realized that I really needed to start one ASAP.

There’s something about Project Pans that makes me love them and hate them at the same time, because I get to use what I have in my stash, but at the same time I am not allowed to buy makeup which hurts when you love makeup hahaha! Anyways in today’s video I talk about my new project pan the products that will be there and will be posting updates very soon, cuz really a couple of weeks have passed since I started (I have no shame!).

Products Included:

  • Tarte Park Ave Princess Bronzer
  • NAKED Palette Shadows (Virgin, Sin, Sidecar, Darkhorse (finish), Hussle (hit pan))
  • LUSH Bubble Gum Lip Scrub
  • NARS Orgasm Illuminator
  • MAC ProLongwear Concealer
  • Makeup Forever HD Foundation
  • AHAVA Hand Moisturizer

Until Next Time,



Wrapping Project Pan 2012

Hello everyone, so I hope everyone is having a great day/night, I know I am. So today I want to take some time to give you my last update for the project pan I started last year. Yep you read correctly, I am wrapping up project pan with only one item left. I am doing this because truthfully I know this product will have no end soon, I am talking about my Estee Lauder Double Wear concealer, this one has tons of product left and I think this will last me another whole year.

So I decided to give it a good end, having in mind that I learned a lot of things from project pan:

  • I did have a very hard time in not buying anything else; hence I cheated a bit I must say.

  • When you pick products for your project make sure that they are not new. It is a pain to use a new product because it will take loads of time to get over it (Like my concealer).

  • It is fun to create new looks with the products you have, you fall in love again with your collection.

  • You get savvier at the time of purchasing beauty products.

  • You save $

In my last update I had 3 products left:

  1. ELF Complexion Duo Bronzer and Blush.In my last update I said that I would give the bronzer a couple of more weeks. Couldn’t be so wrong because this thing lasted more than that time, but I finally finished it. As I said before for $3.00 usd this is not bad at all I really liked it, but I won’t be repurchasing this soon as I have other bronzers I need to dig in, and needless to say I have blush overstock.

  2. Maybelline Dream Matte Powder. I did have a hard time finishing this one, but accomplished it, I must say this product was my savior over the summer, but over the fall/winter I do not need that much powder for setting up my makeup. Would I repurchase, maybe I will I do think this is a great powder for Oily Skin, but right now I am using one from CoverGirl and has been working real good on me.

  3. CoverGirl Liquiline Blast eyeliner in Black Fire. Ok now I really got to the point where I cannot sharpen this pencil, which means I can no longer use it, it is so small and tiny that I had to get another one. I did repurchase the same liner again I really love this product a lot and I hope this never gets discontinued.

  1. Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer. This was the only product I could not finish I love it and it works great on me, whenever I try to use something else (Laura Mercier, Cover FX) I go back to this one it’s just great for my skin and my dark circles. And I continue using it.

Now if someone asked me if I would go through another project pan, as a matter of fact I will, but I am working in a different approach this time (that might be less painful). So stay tuned in the next days, I will be talking about my new project for this 2013.

Until Next Time

Project Pan Update 10/16/12

Hey everybody, so today I have a project pan update. I know it’s been quite some time, but who would think that finishing products would take time, anyways here is a bit update to show that this project is still alive and I haven’t forgotten about it.

My Products List:

  1. Rimmel Fix & Perfect Pro Primer in 002. Completely over. I learned that I cannot use this product near my nose or I’ll break out awful. What I have learned is that this product might work for someone with more normal skin and as I am oily would not be repurchasing.

  2. Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer. I haven’t seen this thing going down, but man I like this product it conceals real good and blends great.

  3. CoverGirl Liquiline Blast eyeliner in Black Fire. I got to the point where the pencil has gotten so small that is kind of hard for me to use it, but still works great. My verdict would be, once I finish this liner I will repurchase it and won’t buy any other brand ever again.

  4. Benefit’s They are Real Mascara. This product was a mess, I tried it first and didn’t like it, I let it air dry a bit and didn’t like it, it poke my eye every time I used it and you know my trouble with un-curled lashes so this was a big disappoint for me. My sister used it once and completely loved it so she took it; this proves that a product can be good for some and bad for others.

  5. Elf Complexion Duo Bronzer and Blush. The Blush is completely gone and the bronzer is almost gone but still on the run (I would give it a couple of weeks of use). I think I would repurchase this only because it does the job, and it’s only $3.00 USD, now I do have other 2 bronzers in line after this one so I don’t think I will be buying this product soon.

  6. Maybelline Dream Matte Powder. I used this product like crazy over the summer but I haven’t used it that much lately so it has a big pan but haven’t finished yet. The truth is that my face hasn’t been that oily these weeks (Thank god for the fall season).

  7. Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Cream Gel. When I got this product I had high hopes I mean a refreshing gel moisturizer? It was good at first but maybe my skin got used to it and stopped working on me (and it broke me out badly). So I decided to go ahead and use it for my neck (and broke me out again). This product is over and I would not repurchase it. I don’t think is a bad and this might work for normal skin types. I ended using what was left for my hands.

  8. Mary Kay Time Wise Night Complex. Completely Over I don’t have pictures of this because I included it in my empties of the month video here and threw it away, this is an Ok product but I don’t think I would repurchase it because I do consider Mary Kay as an expensive brand. I do use some expensive products but they have to be WOW in order for me to give those extra pennies away.

  9. Mary Kay Time Wise Night Solution. Completely Over and I would give the same comments I did for the Night Complex.

And something extra I discovered today; I use my NAKED palette every single day, I do believe that this palette is very school and office appropriate, besides it helps you create wonderful looks for special occasions (weddings, birthdays, etc.), well today I hit pan on my favorite shadow and that one would be SIN, I just love this shadow and I use it as a highlighter every single day. I am kind of sad because I do love this shadow, and I would think that this palette was magical never ending product. But that’s fine…

Anyways, that’s all for me today,

If you are under a project pan I would like to know, I love watching what other people include in their projects.

Until Next Time,
