After watching too many project pan videos on YouTube over the last few months, I’ve decided to start the project myself! I’ve set a pretty steep goal for myself. And I’m nearly 3 months too late to the project! But oh well, it’s going to be a challenge, and I’m up for it! The goal is to finish (or get more use out of) 17 products by the end of 2017!

Why project pan?

I clean out and purge from my collection seasonally, but my collection is a fair size, so items don’t get used up. Makeup unfortunately expires. And I’ve had to throw a lot of things out in the past because they get forgotten about. I also have gone to purchasing cruelty free about 6 months ago, so a few non-cruelty free products still remain in my collection for various reasons. So I want to use up the last of the products that are by brands that test on animals and I want to finishing up some older items in my collection. I rounded up 17 things to use more in 2017, I’ll track my progress and hopefully there will be 17 empties to show off in early 2018! That’s hopeful, but I really wanted to challenge myself.

The products to pan

I posted an intro video to the project on YouTube so you can see me chat about these products in a little more.

I know it seems like a lot of items to select, however my makeup collection is a fair size. So I think that it’s a great goal to set for myself to make the most use out of everything I have. Here are all of the before photos – I’m hoping to see some progress quickly!

I can’t wait to make posts as I make progress in this project. I think I’ll do 2-3 updates between now and the end of the year. How often would you guys like to see those? Please send me links to your own videos and blogposts so I can get some motivation!
