Project Pan: 19 in 2019

While I had a few products I wanted to use up, I didn’t really participate in a project pan last year. I’m not sure if this will be too ambitious or not but I’ve identified 19 items that I really want to make progress with in 2019, even if I don’t use them all up. Read onto see what I picked and why.

Watch the video:

#1 Illamasqua Hydra Veil Primer

This is a gel texture so I don’t want to waste product when it’s something this expensive!

Illamasqa hv

#2 BECCA Hydra Mist Set & Refresh Powder

I love this powder, but I think the cooling, hydrating aspect to it will surely mean a lower shelf life than most powders and this is coming up to six months old so I’d like to get as much used as possible before I have to toss it.

#3 Clinique Pore Refining Solutions

This has featured on multiple lists of products I want to use up but I think 2019 is going to be the year I finally do it. There doesn’t feel much left in the tube so hopefully it will be soon!


#4 Charlotte Tilbury The Magic Foundation

I’ve had this for about a year now and I’d like to get my use out of it before it goes bad, again because of how expensive this product is.

#5 Stila Magnificient Metals

This is one of my favourite liquid eyeshadows but I know it won’t last forever and I’d like to use it more.


#6 Cover FX Shimmer Veils

For the same reason as above, I need to get a few liquid shadows used up but I’m mostly concerned with the pricier options for now.

#7 The Body Shop Honey Bronzer

This is one of my fave bronzers and I have already got some pan showing so I’d be happy with a little more progress on this before I try and use another bronzer.

#8 BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Opal

I had quite a lot of pan showing in this mini but I’ve since repressed it and I’m hoping to hit pan again soon.


#9 Essence I Heart Colour Intensifying Base

I’ve kept this eye primer around even though I’m not a big fan of it. I feel like it’s almost empty so surely I can finally finish it up and start using something else in 2019.

#10 Soap & Glory Supercat Liner

I rarely wear liquid eyeliner and now have others I prefer to use over this so I’d like to get as much of this used as possible before it dries up.


#11 NYX Control Freak Brow Gel

I’ve had this for ages now and don’t often use clear brow gel anymore. It’s probably gone a bit gunky so I’ll see how much life is left in it.

#12 NYX Slip Tease in Lowkey

This should be ok but I noticed the formula was starting to change when I used it last. I really like this shade so I’m hoping I can get some more use out of it before it goes bad.


#13 Urban Decay Vice Lipstick minis

There’s something satisfying about finishing a lipstick because it happens so rarely but I feel like it is achievable with minis.

#14 TonyMoly Banana Sleeping Pack

As I said in my review linked above, this night cream is a little bit too heavy for me to use all the time so it’s taking a long time to get through it but I have so much skincare to get through.


#15 PS…Hot Cloth Cleanser

I have a lot of cleansers open at the moment so this is one I’d like to use up so I can move on to something else and make some space in my skincare cupboard.

#16 PS…Dream Cream

Another night cream and one I do enjoy using but it would be nice to give something else a go and it’s so satisfying to finish products before I do!


#17 Pixi T-Zone Mask

I haven’t really given this peel-off mask much of a chance yet so I’d just like to give it some more use this year.

#18 Skin79 Green Tea Purifying Mask

This is almost full so I’d just like to give it some use. It smells awful- like rotting veg so I think that’s been putting me off!


#19 Soap & Glory Smoothie Star Body Lotion

I could have put any number of body lotions on this list because I have so damn many of them from Christmas but I’m being realistic with myself by sticking to this huge Soap & Glory bottle.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know if you think 19 products is going to be achievable or not and I’ll try to post regular updates.
