Project pan 2018

Here’s the story. I tried project pan last year and failed miserably. Why? Because I chose products I mostly hate. Nobody wants to apply such products to their face every single day, right? So this year, I’m doing it differently. I chose 10 products that I like but which have been in my collection way too long. I’m not including any mascaras, because I have never used up a mascara in my life – I only toss them once they dry out or don’t work properly anymore, which is usually around the six months mark.

These days, when every beauty vlogger on YouTube is boasting their huge collections, it’s important to remind ourselves that make-up actually expires and we have to use it up while it’s still good. Expired products can give you skin issues or even cause bigger complications, especially those which are used on the eyes or the mouth.

Five of these will be a piece of cake. Five of these will not. But I will try my best. I’ll update you here after six months and every month or so on Instagram – don’t forget to follow me there. So without further ado, here are my 10 products that I’ll try to use up in 2018. I’ll start with the easiest one and work my way up according to how difficult I feel each product will be.

Project pan 2018 #1: Essence Fresh&Fit primer

I use primer on a daily basis and I really like this one, especially for spring and summer as it gives me some extra glow. I normally use up quite a few bottles of primer each year so this one should be a piece of cake.

Project pan 2018 #2: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation

This foundation has been in my drawer longer than I care to admit. It’s a lightweight foundation with light coverage so I’ll probably wear it around the weekend. I usually prefer medium coverage for workdays. It’s hard to tell from the bottle, but I think there are about three quarters left in there. Goal for the product: use it up completely.

Project pan 2018 #3: Collection contour kit

I bought the The Collection contour kit in Ireland over two years and it’s getting a bit tired. I don’t care for the highlight, but the contour color is really good because it’s dark and neutral. Goal for this product: use up the entire contour pan. I don’t think it’ll be that hard, to be honest

Project pan 2018 #4: Trend It Up Contour & Glide lip liner  – 400

Project pan 2018 trend it up lip liner

This is one of my go-to lip liners for many of the lipsticks I wear on everyday basis. It’s a great nude color with the tiniest hint of pink undertone. This Trend It Up lip liner doesn’t have the best staying power, but I like to wear it with lippies or alone combined with a lip gloss. I don’t think it will be a problem to use it up entirely in 2018 since it’s quite soft and consequently goes down much quicker then a regular pencil liner.

Project pan 2018 #5: Lancome Juicy Shaker – Mangoes Wild

This juicy shaker is another product I’ve been carrying around for a while now. I feel like I’ve used it quite a bit, but when looking at the level in the bottle, I’ve actually used only about a tenth. Consequently, I’m not buying the matte shaker until I’ve used this one up. And I really want the matte Juicy Shaker, so that’s the deal I’m making with myself. Goal: use the entire bottle. View Full Post

My Colourpop order finally arrived, two full packages of make-up just for me! In the beginning of May, Colourpop was celebrating their b-day by offering free international shipping and naturally I jumped at the chance. Although both my orders totaled under 22 € (which is the magic limit so you don’t have to pay VAT, in case you were wondering), Colourpop declared the value as much higher on the package and both packages were held and opened by our lovely Slovenian customs which cost me additional 5 € per package for their “control” and a whole lot of nerves. So this might be the last Colourpop order for a while…

Moja Colourpop paketka sta končno tu! Dve škatli, polni ličil, samo zame! V začetku maja je Colourpop praznoval rojstni dan in svoje uporabnice nagradil z brezplačno poštnino po vsem svetu, kar sem seveda izkoristila. Čeprav sta obe moji naročili znašali manj kot 22 € (kar je magična meja, da se izogneš plačilu DDV-ja), je Colourpop na paketka napisal višjo vrednost (brez popustov) in čudoviti gospodje na carini so se odločili, da je potrebno oba paketka nujno pregledati. To me je stalo še dodatnih 5 € na paket, kar me vsekakor niti najmanj ne navdušuje, zato bo verjetno to za nekaj časa tudi zadnje Colourpop naročilo.

Anyway, I ordered a bunch of different items and got them at a really good price and they even threw some additional gifts in there. Since I recently dyed my hair back to blonde from dark brown, I needed some new brow products to match my hair color. I chose both the pot and the pencil in the color Honey Blonde, which is a warm toned blonde. I must say it matches my brows quite well and doesn’t have any grey undertones which are so common with brow products for blondes. The pencil is especially great – a very slim tip makes for a precise application and the spoolie on the other side is very practical for a comb-through afterwards. The pot cost 6 $ and the pencil 5 $ which is really not a lot considering the amount of product you’re getting.  Verdict: 5/5 for both of these.

Naročila sem cel kup različnih izdelkov po super cenah, zraven pa dobila še nekaj darilc. Ker sem si pred kratkim lase iz temno rjave barve po nekaj letih ponovno pobarvala na blond, sem potrebovala tudi nove izdelke za obrvi. Izbrala sem pomado in svinčnik v odtenku Honey Blonde. Barva je za moje obrvi super, prav tako pa nima nobenih sivih podtonov, ki so tako značilni za svetle odtenke izdelkov za obrvi. Še posebej sem navdušena nad svinčnikom, ki ima izredno tanko konico za natačno vrisovanje dlačic, ščetka na drugi strani pa je prav tako koristna, da na koncu obrvi še natančno prečešem. Cena pomade je 6 $, svinčnika pa 5 $, kar se mi ne zdi veliko, sploh glede na to, da je v obojih kar velika količina izdelka. View Full Post
