Project Pan Roulette #2: 24 By 24 Update

24 By 24- Update

I started a short little project pan back in June of this year, I wanted to finish 24 by 24 which isn’t a small project pan by any means but the time span that I have set for myself is for sure, I’m half way through and I don’t think that I’m even remotely half way through the products that I had planned. If you want to see the original post click here, and if you just want to see the update then feel free to just read on, let’s just jump right on in because this is probably going to be a long one.


24. Something hyped up on Youtube: Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask.

This mask is something weird to me and something I ruined without even realizing it, it came with a little spatula to apply and I tried applying with that but got really annoyed so I ended up applying it with my fingers, which I guess activated the whole thing and kind of ruined it. So, because of that I ended up just tossing this one as it wasn’t really something I could use anymore. Amount Left: Decluttered. 

11. Something You Have Already Hit Pan On: Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cucticle Cream.

I lost this for a little while and actually ended up repurchasing it, however, I have found this one so now I guess I have two of these which is fine with me as I was planning on buying a new one when I used up the old one, I am trying to work through my first one though and have made some dent in it. Amount Left: 30%

25. Something In A Stick/Tube: Tony Moly So Cool Eye Stick

This is probably my most neglected product in this entire project, I keep this in my nightstand for who knows what reason and because of that I never find myself reaching for it, so I think I’m going to move it and see if we can make some progress in this product. Amount Left: 50%

36. Item In Your Favorite Color: Not Your Mothers Naturals Tahitian Gardenia Flower + Mango Butter Curl Defining Detangler

I’ve been using this after every shower and I’m really not sure if it’s helping at all, it doesn’t seem to be however I am still powering through and trying to use this one up, I’m not sure that I’d repurchase at this point though. Amount Left: 20%

9. Perfume: Sugared Amber Dreams Rollerball.

We all know this is my favorite perfume ever, in fact, I just named this yesterdays post as my favorite perfume ever, however, because I own the spray and the roller ball the roller ball really gets neglected. I have moved this to my desk at work and have been using it more, but I feel like I really haven’t made any progress in this one. Amount Left: 50%

18. Something Purple: Pink Sweet & Flirty Body Mist Mini.

I find these super easy to get through during these projects, they are something that are easy to just spritz on and something that I can spritz on throughout the day if I’m looking for a little bit of a boost in scent. I’ve been crushing this and will probably be finished with this one within a week and a half, at least that is my guess. Amount Left: 10%

17. Something Fun: Lush First Snow Dusting Powder.

This is the hardest thing on this list for me, partially because I forget that it exists and partially because I am never patient enough to wait to apply it when I’m dry and once I am dry it’s usually later in the day and I see no point in it. So, because of this I haven’t really made a whole lot of a dent in this product and I am for sure not going to be finishing this by the end of this project, I can already tell you that now, however, I would like to try and focus on it a little bit more and see if I can make some kind of dent in this product. This one is tough. Amount Left: 85%


42. Everyday Staple Item: Smashbox Photo Finish Primer.

This one is a little bit weird, I am technically finished with the product that is in this picture, however, I have two smaller samples of this product and since I finished this one so quick I’ve decided to throw those in and try and finish those up. So far I have finished the one in the photo here and one of the smaller ones, so now I’ve only got one left to finish up before I am finally finished with this primer.  Amount Left: Techincally Finished

24. Something with Beautiful Packaging: Tony Moly Pocket Bunny Moist Mist.

I love this product and this is something that is super easy for me to use, but because I have two sprays in this project this hasn’t been the one that I’ve been focusing on. I have done a little bit of damage to it but nothing as dramatic as I have with the other one, so this one might not get finished or maybe it will, we’ll just have to wait and see. Amount Left: 30%

50. Mac Product: Mac Strobe Cream.

This is seriously the product that will never die, it just keeps coming out and even when I feel like I’m close to finishing it still seems like more is coming out, I am really determined to finish this one at the point just because it has been such a long lived product but it’s proving to be difficult. Amount Left: 20%

20. Something You Are Loving: Mac Fix+ Coconut.

I am crushing this one and that is probably not the slightest bit surprising to anyone who has read my blog recently, I feel like I mention this product way too much as one of my favorite products, I can’t help it I just really love it. And because I love it that means I’ve been focusing on this one a lot and in turn, every time I wear makeup I set my face with this spray. Amount Left: 30%

52. Setting Powder: Dermablend Loose Setting Powder.

This is another thing that I feel like I am actually making great progress on, which I was really surprised by, but what I’ve done is pretty much only set my makeup with this product anytime that I’ve done my makeup since I’ve started this project. I never thought I would end up liking a loose setting powder but I think I am starting to fall for this one. Amount Left: 40%

21. Something You Regret: Wet N Wild Mega Cushion Highlight in Who’s That Pearl.

This is just not good or something that I enjoy, while this may have been a cheaper product it is something that I am regretting because I just don’t like it. I think I’m almost to a point where I just want to declutter this because I don’t want to open my makeup drawer and see this anymore, I’m not sure yet but I know I’m really close to doing that. Amount Left: 90%

29. Full Sized Item: Sephora Radiant Luminizing Drops in Morning Light.

It’s not that I don’t like this project it’s just that this is a really hard product to make a dent in, I feel like I’ve been using that a pretty decent amount but like I said, there is quite a bit of product in this container that is making it hard for me to make big dents in. Amount Left: 80%

3. Deluxe Sized Item: Pur Volume Vixen Mascara.

I believe I have decluttered this mascara, and if I haven’t then I am about to, because I have tried to work with this one and if I’m being completely honest I just don’t like this mascara in the slightest bit, it’s too wet and too much of a hassle to work with.  Amount Left: Decluttered

40. Sample Product: Milk Makeup Blur Stick.

I have used this a little bit since I started the project, but because I started to focus on the Smashbox primer this one has had to take a  little bit of a backseat, I think I’m nearly done with the Smashbox one which means I’ll probably start focusing heavily on this product again. But, as of right now I’ve only made a little dip in this. Amount Left: 75%

39. Urban Decay Item: Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Liner in Perversion.

I can’t make any excuses for this one, I tried and tried to use it but in the end, I just ended up hating everything about this one, it’s difficult to work with, the formula is quite watery and it’s just not black enough for me. This had to go. Amount Left: Decluttered

2. Product In a Palette: Lorac Pro Matte.

I’ve failed this one, I used to love and adore this palette, it was something that I reached for with every single look but now I’m finding it harder to work on. I still like it, I just forget about it a lot and because of that, I have made no dip in it. I am going to try and focus on getting this used a little more though, but I doubt I’m going to finish any shade before the end of this project, let alone the entire thing. Amount Left: 75%

37. Maybelline Item: Maybelline Brightening Creamy Concealer in Fair.

I tried this concealer, I really did, I’ve been using it this entire time up until a few days ago, but I just don’t like this product and I couldn’t hold on to it any longer so I just decluttered it. I hated this concealer, it barely covered, it was greasy and it was a little bit too dark for me even though it was the lightest shade in the range. Overall just a big fail in my book. Amount Left: Decluttered.


12. Glossy Lip Product: Too Faced Sweet Peach Lip Oil in Papa Don’t Peach.

I really hate the smell of this, I’ve realized how much recently as I am trying to use this product up, it’s so annoying because the scent really doesn’t linger that long and the color is gorgeous, but for that first ten or fifteen second of application, it’s so hard for me to get past but I’m trying. Amount Left: 85%

27: Matte Product: Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Dopey.

I like this formula better than the ultra mattes I think, these don’t last anywhere near as long but they do feel a lot more comfortable which is something that I like. This hasn’t been my main focus but as you can tell I have put a little dent in it. Amount Left: 75%

47. Lip Gloss: Buxom Full On Lip Cream in White Russian.

I thought this one was going to be harder for me to use up but it’s really not as bad as I thought it would be, I’ve made pretty good progress on this product and I actually really love this. I am both excited and sad to see this one go soon.. Amount Left: 40%

33. Chapstick/Lip Balm: Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment.

I love this stuff, it’s not the best lip balm in the world I’m sure but it’s probably the best one that I’ve ever used and I’ve been using it quite a bit and made some difference in it, this one is bittersweet though because I do like it so much. Amount Left: 50%

21. Item Of Your Choice: Sephora Rouge Shine Lipstick in N14.

I have finally finished this one! I feel like it took me so long for such a little product, I really enjoyed this but I think I’m glad to see this go. This was a great product and a pretty color, just not exactly my typical cup of tea. Because of that, I don’t think I’d pick it up again. Amount Left: Finished.

And that is all for my update, I think I’m doing pretty well, I don’t think I’m going to use all of these products up by the time this project is over in a month and a half, but I think I can get a few more out. Thus far I’ve finished two products, decluttered four and made dents in eighteen other products, which I think is pretty good.

Would you guys be interested in seeing another project pan after this one is over?

Project Pan Roulette #2: 24 By 24!

Project Pan- 24 By 24

I haven’t even started typing this post before adding this, but I know this is going to be a long one, so grab yourself a snack, a drink and settle in because this will be a long post!

I am back again with the project pan roulette, I’ve done one of these before and just finished the one I was working one last month actually, but it was really fun and I have so much makeup that I decided to try again. Basically, this is kind of like a project pan except I picked how many products I wanted to, used a random number generator and this list to decide what categories of products I was going to use. Pretty simple I think, fun and a little bit challenging sometimes.

And, if you couldn’t assume I’m am going to attempt to use 24 products up by the time that I turn 24, which is in September. I have no doubt that I will not finish all of these products but I am really excited to try. I plan on doing one check in and then a final like I did in the other project pan, so I’m probably going to do the check in sometime around the half way mark in later July or early August, then the final sometime around my birthday. Now, with all of that said let’s jump in and look at all of the products that I plan on attempting to get through.


24. Something hyped up on Youtube: Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask.

This mask is something that I feel like the whole internet is obsessed with, or at least was for a while there, and youtube is part of the internet so I’ve decided to try and use this up even though it’s new to me. I just wanna find out how much I really like it, so that’s why I chose this mask. Amount Left: 80%

11. Something You Have Already Hit Pan On: Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cucticle Cream.

I recently hit pan on this and I really love this stuff, I apply this probably at least once a day because I love what it does for my hands and how it smells, I’m kind of obsessed at the moment. I have faith that I can probably finish this product up. Amount Left: 50%

25. Something In A Stick/Tube: Tony Moly So Cool Eye Stick

I cannot express how much I love this product! It’s really great and feels amazing on the skin, I’m not sure if it does a whole for my skin but it is very cooling and I love the feeling of it on my skin so much. Amount Left: 50%

36. Item In Your Favorite Color: Not Your Mothers Naturals Tahitian Gardenia Flower + Mango Butter Curl Defining Detangler

This is newer to me and I’m not sure how I feel about this honestly, I thought it smelled amazing when I first used it but as I’ve been using it I kind of hate the scent, I’m also not sure what it’s doing for my hair but I’m going to try and use it up anyway. Amount Left: 75%

9. Perfume: Sugared Amber Dreams Rollerball.

This is my all time favorite scent that I’ve smelled thus far, I own the spray of this as well so I never used the rollerball, which is why I decided on putting this product in here because it just made sense to me. This smells really sweet but at the same time it’s not overly sweet and it has a bit of warmth to it, I think it’s a really rounded scent and I am in love with it. Amount Left: 50%

18. Something Purple: Pink Sweet & Flirty Body Mist Mini.

I had a different one in my last project pan and decided to throw this one in here since I am currently really into this, I use this almost every single day, it smells really great and I may get a full size once I use this up because I really like the scent. Yes, I know that kind of defeats the purpose but whatever, I’ll do what I want. Amount Left: 40%

17. Something Fun: Lush First Snow Dusting Powder.

This is a holiday product so I couldn’t link it in this posts, but I think this is a great product for the summer time, even though it came out in the winter, I also think this is fun. This is a dusting powder that has a bit of shimmer in it and smells just like citrus, both of these things are things that make me think of the summer time and since summer is coming it made sense to me to throw this in. Amount Left: 85%


42. Everyday Staple Item: Smashbox Photo Finish Primer.

This was in the last project pan that I did and it has returned here, I am trying super hard to finish this product and I’m nearly done with this tube, however, I have two smaller tubes that I’m trying to get through as well. I like this primer but I’ve found one I like more, however before I commit to a full size of it I want to finish up a few primers I already own and these are thist list. Amount Left: 15%

24. Something with Beautiful Packaging: Tony Moly Pocket Bunny Moist Mist.

I don’t really own anything with really beautiful packaging so I settled on this, I’m not even sure that this is beautiful but it is very cute and easily one of the cutest products that I own. I love this spray, it feels really nice on the skin, I feel like it does really well on my skin and it smells amazing, but I have tons of new sprays to try out so I’m going to try and use this one up. Amount Left: 40%

50. Mac Product: Mac Strobe Cream.

Yes, another thing that was in my past project pan and that’s because I didn’t use it up so it’s back with another chance of getting used. I really like this stuff but it was given to me and I’ve had it for a little while, so I figured I should use it before it really goes bad. Amount Left: 25%

20. Something You Are Loving: Mac Fix+ Coconut.

Another Mac product, this one is one that I am really loving and am sad that they don’t carry anymore, at least not in this scent and boy does this smell really good. I just want to use this up because I really like it. Amount Left: 75%

52. Setting Powder: Dermablend Loose Setting Powder.

This is just a sample sized product but I feel like this one is really going to be a challenge because it is loose powder and while it seems small I bet it is going to last for some time, but either way I am going to attempt to use it up and see how much of a dent I can get in this one. Amount Left: 98%

21. Something You Regret: Wet N Wild Mega Cushion Highlight in Who’s That Pearl.

I wanted this so bad and lusted after it for a while before actually picking it up, which is strange for me considering it’s a really affordable item but I just couldn’t bite the bullet and now I’m kind of regretting it. It’s not a major loss at all but it’s just something that I want to use up and not waste. Amount Left: 95%

29. Full Sized Item: Sephora Radiant Luminizing Drops in Morning Light.

I don’t really know how I feel about this as I keep forgetting I have these, which is why I decided to put it on this list, it’s something that I want to try and if I put it on this list I will be forced to remember that this is a thing and use it. Amount Left: 100%


3. Deluxe Sized Item: Pur Volume Vixen Mascara.

I have way too many mascaras I think and I figured this was a great reason to focus on what and use one up, so I settled on this one just because it was one of the first ones that I grabbed. Amount Left: 100%

40. Sample Product: Milk Makeup Blur Stick.

I now have two samples of this, I tried this out once and I actually really liked it so I’m hoping I continue to enjoy it. I know this is pretty much another primer but I really wanted to try this out a finish up some of the primers that I already have. Amount Left: 95%

39. Urban Decay Item: Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Liner in Perversion.

I was gifted this eyeliner by someone and I do not want to have this around any longer, maybe that’s strange, maybe it’s not but either way I have thrown this into the mix because I can probably get through this with very little effort. Amount Left: 100%

2. Product In a Palette: Lorac Pro Matte.

This was also in my last project pan and it is back because I did not get super far with this. I’m not focused on a specific color but I will be working on this, I’m hoping to finish them all up but I will settle for one or two shades completely planned, however, I’m not sure how this will go. Amount Left: 75%

37. Maybelline Item: Maybelline Brightening Creamy Concealer in Fair.

This may also be something that I regret a little bit but I’ve decided to throw it on this project so I can give it a little bit more of a chance, I’ve tried this maybe twice and I’m not a fan yet. Amount Left: 100%


12. Glossy Lip Product: Too Faced Sweet Peach Lip Oil in Papa Don’t Peach.

I love this color but I’m not a huge fan of the scent of this, I think that’s why this one is going to be a little bit of a challenge to use up because I am not super favorable of the scent, but we will see. Amount Left: 95%

27: Matte Product: Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Dopey.

This is just a mini and is a satin finish, but I’m counting it because that is close enough to matte for me. I think this one should be fairly easy for a lip product, it’s a small tube, it’s a color that I enjoy and it’s a finish that I like. Amount Left: 100%

47. Lip Gloss: Buxom Full On Lip Cream in White Russian.

This may be one the easiest product for me, or at least on of the easiest, I love this stuff! This color is gorgeous, I really like the feel on the lips and while I’m not the biggest fan of a glossy finish I like this one a lot, it’s not overly sticky or anything else. Amount Left: 75%

33. Chapstick/Lip Balm: Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment.

I have mixed feelings on this one, only because it’s a kind of expensive and I love it, so using it up is kind of a bittersweet thing. But, this is something that I really love so I don’t %want it to go bad, I would much rather use it up. Amount Left: 

21. Item Of Your Choice: Sephora Rouge Shine Lipstick in N14.

This is the last product and this is also the last product that was in my last project pan, this one should be fairly easy seeing as it is a mini that I barely have any left of it, so I am not worried about this one at all. Amount Left: 15%

And those are all of those products that are in this project, a really good mix I think and a bit of a challenge. I really don’t think that I’ll finish all of these products at all, it’s a lot of things and I didn’t even fully finish my last project in the time frame, either way I’m going to have fun, try and use up some products and see how it goes.

Are you guys doing a project pan at the moment?

Project Pan Roulette: 17 By May Finale

Project Pan Finale

I have finally reached the end of this project, it seems like it’s been forever since I started this but really it’s only been a few months, either way, this project is over. I plan on starting another one next month, so clearly I’m enjoying doing these to some degree. It’s just really nice being able to use up things that I love and sometimes don’t love as much, it makes more room for new things too, which is always a plus for the makeup hoarder that lives inside of me.

Before we get started with this one, let me link you to the start of my project pan and the only update in this one, that way if you want to catch up on them you can, or if you just want to dive into this one then you are more than welcome to.



Just like the last time I am using the same photos, mostly because I don’t have all of the products to update you on, however, I’m thinking I might keep them for the next project you can see the actual progress on the products. We’ll see what I decide to do, but for now, let’s get to finishing up this project.

35. Non-Black Eyeliner: Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner in Cobalt. I feel like what has happened with this one is that I just keep forgetting that I have it and honestly, don’t always want to wear it, so because of that I really haven’t made a dent in this since my last check in and have only used about a fifth of it up since I started this project.  Percent Left: 80%

37. Maybelline Item: Maybelline Matte + Poreless Foundation In Porcelain. This just will not die, I totally feel like I guessed incorrectly in the last check in because I’d say I have about 10% left now and I have been using this, not solely this foundation but I have been using it a lot. So, this one should really be easy to use up but I just didn’t finish it before this project ended.  Percent Left: 10%

3. Deluxe Sized Item: Smashbox Photofinish Primer. This is truly the product that will not die, not just this tube but I keep getting sample tubes, between Ulta and Sephora I probably have three or four of the smaller tubes. And while I don’t hate this primer it’s just not my favorite, it does alright but it just won’t go away. Percent Left: 15%

5. Drugstore Item: Maybelline Fit Me Powder in Porcelain. I finished this! It wasn’t too hard but it did take me a little bit of time to really complete this. I’m kind of neutral about the product itself, it wasn’t my favorite powder ever but it wasn’t bad by any means either. Percent Left:  Finished 05/04/2017

50. Mac Product: Mac Strobe Cream. I know I’ve said this a few times already but this will not die, I’ve been using this so much and it’s like I haven’t even touched it, it’s kind of a bittersweet kind of thing, I love this product but it’s just not going away. Percent Left: 10%


21. Something You Regret Purchasing: Wet N Wild Contouring Palette in Dulce De Leche. This is a weird one, this is something that I am considering finished but I didn’t completely finish. I used up all of the light side, it was so good, so good that I have debated repurchasing it just for this powder once I’m done with some of my powder stash. However, I got maybe 20% of the way through the bronzer before just giving up and tossing it.  Percent Left: Finished 05/02/2017

18. Something Purple: Nyx Bright Idea Illuminating Stick in Lavender Lust. I talked about this last time and this one is also gone. Percent Left: Finished 2/20/2017

2. Product In A Palette: Lorac Pro Matte Eyeshadow Palette. This was a much bigger bite than I had anticipated and I haven’t gotten as far as I wanted to in this but I did try. This is just something that is going to take more than four months to finish I guess. Percent Left: 40%


29. Full Sized Product: Maybelline Color Whisper in Made It Mauve. I loved this lipstick so much, it was a really good my lips but better color, the formula was great and I really loved the smell. I feel like this lipstick is kind of underrated because they are some of the best drugstore lipsticks I’ve ever tried.  Percent Left: Finished 02/10/2017

44. Something Pink: Sephora Rouge Shine Lipstick in Love Spell. I’m so close with this one like I have used this so much and it’s just a little nub but I didn’t use it enough so I haven’t finished this one either. Percent Left: 10%

51. Something Orange. Lush Bouncy Bunny Shower Jelly. This was a really easy thing to use up, as you can probably tell by the finish date, Lush shower jellies are probably some of the easiest products for me to use up. Percent Left: Finished 01/24/17

48. Something You Want To Buy A Full Size Of/Repurchase: Wet N Wild Illumi-Naughty Highlighting and Concealing Pen in I-Vory Into You. Probably the easiest product for me to use up, this is a concealer that has a moderate kind of coverage and it’s really brightening, I don’t know why I haven’t picked another one up because this one is so good. Percent Left: Finished 01/29/2017

33. Chapstick/Lip Balm. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Berry. Another thing that I threw out, mostly because it was growing mold and that wasn’t something that I wanted to use on my face anymore, so into the bin it went.  Percent Left: Finished 02/20/2017


11. Something Hyped Up On Youtube. L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask. This was something else that was fairly easy for me to finish, it took me a little longer than some things but I had a few other things going on, either way I finished this product and I enjoyed it alright. Percent Left: Finished 03/12/2016

45. Skin Care Item. Lush Celebrate Body Lotion. This was a nightmare to finish, I love this lotion and I adore the smell of it even more, but because it is so thick and creamy it’s just something that I found harder to use up, I did end up finishing this but it took some effort for sure. Percent Left: 4/07/2017

41. Something You Haven’t Use in Over a Year: Colourpop Lippie Stix in Pinch. I haven’t done a good job with this one, I think I had too many lip products in this one to really be able to finish them all, at least that’s what I tell myself because I don’t think I’ve gotten anywhere with this lipstick really, I’ve used it a couple times since the last time I updated, so this one is something I’ll still have to work on. Percent Left: 65%

15: Something in a Previous Project Pan: Pink Warm and Cozy Body Mist. Percent Left: Finished 01/26/2017
