Hey guys! I have been really thinking about doing a pan that palette challenge for myself for quite a while now. I've been reading blog posts and watching YouTube videos of people doing project pan challenges, and I was finally inspired by a very lovely girl on YouTube named Jacquelyn and her channel is called FortWorthFamous. She does all kinds of beauty videos, but her panning videos are pretty neat. I've only been subscribed to her for under a week, but I've been watching her videos like crazy lately! She's the one who made me have an ah-ha! moment in realizing that I have so much makeup that hardly gets used.
I've also realized that my palette collection is pretty outta control, and I have yet to hit pan on any shade in every palette I own. I've decided it's time for me to challenge myself and see if I can totally use up an entire palette. I was going through my collection thinking of which one I wanted to pan, and thought that I wasn't going to be able to do it because I love so many different palettes and would be sad to completely use one up.
That's until I saw my theBalm Nude'tude Palette hiding underneath my loved palettes. I've ranted in a past post of how disappointed I was with Hautelook, where I purchased this palette, and that when I got this in the mail, it had already looked used to me with fingerprints. I was immediately put off, but sanitized it, and decided to try it out. I honestly wasn't impressed and have probably only used this palette under 5 times. If I used this up completely, I wouldn't miss it. The mirror is also broken as you can see, so I want it gone asap. I'm setting out the intention to pan this palette completely in 2016.
I have no idea how long it will actually take me to completely use this up, but if I can use it up by the end of the year, I'll be happy. I will continue to use different palettes for review purposes (I have quite a few I still need to do reviews on), but this is the palette I want to continuously reach for. I will still be doing my monthly empties posts because I use up different products every month, and every month is always different in the amount I'm able to finish.
I also want to do updates on how I'm doing with my Pan That Palette challenge, so I'll be posting close-up pictures, like the ones right above here, every month on the progress I've made. Since we're already almost half way through February, I probably won't do an update until the beginning of April. The pictures shown above are what the shadows look like as of right now. Wish me luck!
Have you ever done any kind of project pan chellenges? Let me know! I'd love advice or words of encouragement!
