  1. You picked a great mix of products to focus on – I def think you’ll end up seeing a noticeable difference in the setting sprays if you use them consistently over the next 3 months! Also, ABH shadows are super powdery / not dense, so I bet you’ll end up seeing some good dips in the MR if you use it regularly too…. especially those lighter neutrals shades that can be used as setting shades or as blending shades in the crease!

    1. I’m pretty sure I can empty the setting sprays in 3 months, or at least one! I really hope to see some dips in the MR since I’ve never seen an actual good dip, let alone a pan, of an eyeshadow palette lol.

  2. Im curious, are you wanting to “pan” these items because you don’t like them?? Or do you use them often so you think you’ll hit the pan quicker?

    1. Most of the items are products I use daily, so it’s easier to pan them. When it comes to lipsticks and eyeshadow, I just chose products I have in my collection for a little while and I don’t want them to go bad before I would be able to pan them. So it’s not because I don’t like them at all. 🙂

  3. Love love love your blog aesthetic, it’s gorgeous!! And I love this idea. I’m not too into makeup anymore, I cleared out and gave the majority of mine away because I was no longer using them, but I’m trying to do this with my clothes this year to stop me from over-consuming!

  4. How exciting! I’m too doing a project pan too and have a post on it coming next week! You’ve got a good mix of products in there and can’t wait to see how well you get on with it. I hope it gives you a healthy mindset when it comes to makeup and spending habits, this what I’m hoping for anyways!

    1. Yay I love to hear that you’re doing a project pan too! Can’t wait for your post. Thank you so much, I definitely hope it’ll help me with my spending habits! I hope it’ll help you too and can’t wait to see which products you’re trying to pan. 🙂

  5. I love project pan – it’s such a great way to encourage us to use up the makeup we already have whether than splurging and hoarding more make up than we’d ever finish (keeping some so long that it actually ‘goes bad’ before we have a chance to use it up)

  6. I started in 2019, and now in 2020, by putting a focus on empties and getting my money’s worth out of products. I don’t officially label myself as a Project Panner because I don’t set goals or participate in challenges. I think I would go batty if I only focused on one eyeshadow palette or highlighter, for example. A low buy or no buy probably wouldn’t work out for me either as I have a tendency to shop til i drop, but this year I really want to focus on more mindful purchasing. Somehow I get blinded while shopping and buy all these beauty products that I know I won’t like and end up donating. So, I want to really cut back on that and save some cash. Here’s to your Project Pan and good luck!

  7. I’m currently doing the 20 in 2020 project pan, the 1K declutter, and rotating through my makeup collection with a monthly makeup basket. With my monthly makeup basket, I used up 2 products so far this month. I am on a low buy as well. I’ve only treated myself when I got engaged. You can do this!

  8. I actually love when I hit pan on a product, it makes me feel like I really got my moneys worth!? Good luck on your journey!

  9. This is a great idea! I also have a bit of an excess of makeup products so I think I’m going to try this out! It definitely is satisfying seeing that pan after using a product continuously!
