This month felt hard, panning wise. And I’ve got nothing that looks close enough to finish about before the end of the year either – we’ll see how far I can get!

18 Pans of ’18: August

Items used in July: 9

Totals items used (thus far): 70

Mostly skin care moved out this month. I am really struggling with foil packets and am cancelling the free samples I get quarterly from Walmart. It’s been really fun but I feel like it’s time to continue to reduce what I use. I am READY to get rid of more makeup…using up what you already own is hard!

18 Pans of ’18: June

Items used in June: 11 (1 decluttered)

Total this year (thus far): 51

I’m doing really well with using more than 18 items total! There’s also two things in my original goal post (the serum and the brush cleaner) that took a lot longer than I expected them to. I’m also thrilled to have two more perfume samples out too. Those eye shadows are going because they just don’t work well.

18 Pans of ’18: May

Items used in May: 6

Total this year (thus far): 40

I have really enjoyed the two things I’ve tried from the Soo Ae brand, I would love to try something not in a foil packet. I really did not enjoy the Jergens – it ran down my legs and got all streaky AND smelled like self tanner! I think the traditional Natural Glow would be much better.

18 Pans of ’18: Jan

I didn’t move out too much this month, but I’m still happy to see so many samples out of my life. The two Tarte liquid lip sticks are not gone but the color suits exactly no one so I’m just binning them. (One was a gift from a friend who it didn’t suit either and I was hooked on the other one she gave me until after I picked up my b-day sample).

The 18 Pans of 2018

I know it’s early but the best time to start is now. I’ve decided to tackle an actual project pan in 2018 and I’m going to get started on moving out these products ASAP. I might have placed an order from Sephora for my birthday and I have some new skincare and a new lipstick headed my way.


The makeup!

  1. Dr. Jart+ BB cream + Rimmel Stay Matte foundation + Andalou Naturals – The Dr. Jart+ is a half oz sample. I regularly mix the Rimmel and the Andalou and both are getting up there in age and need used up.
  2. Sephora lip oil – I don’t know why I bought this. It’s just OK.
  3. Stile Smudgestick in Lionfish – I swear, this is the only eyeliner I used in 2017 and ITS STILL GOING. I have two more that need used too!
  4. NYX lip liner – I don’t really use this/these so I’m just trying to use them out and get it out.
  5. BITE double ended lipstick – again, this is old and I LOVE these bright colors. These lipsticks are made with food grade ingredient so they can go off fairly quickly.
  6. Sleek Blush x 3 in Lace – I’ve hit major pan on this and I want to use it up! I have another blush in basically the same color (clearly, I like what I like!)
  7. & 8. & 9. & 10. I want to hit pan on four more pans in my franken-pallet.

11. all my sheets masks
12. Briogo Leave In Mask
13. Sephora Brush Cleaner (this is a total gimme and I’m OK with that)
14. Pacifica Future Youth Mask
15. Freeman Peel Off Mask
16. Vitamin C serum- oh man, I do not like this. I’m going to use it up mixing it into my body lotion.
17. Dr. Jart+ Water Drop
18. Dr. Jart+ Micro Water

Wish me luck!
