13 By Halloween Project Pan – FINALE!

LeahERaven.com | 13 By Halloween Project Pan FINALE

Hey everyone, long time no write, I know.  Per most people’s reasoning, life got in the way.  However, here I am today with my 13 By Halloween Project Pan FINALE!  I finally worked all the way through a freaking project pan and I am beyond thrilled and proud of myself.  I’ve done several project pans in the past and have been unsuccessful, but today is the finale!  I’m going to go over the products I finished before this finale, before going over what products I had left.  So if you think that is something you might be interested in, well, just keep on reading!

On the first update, I was able to finish off 6 of the 13 products which included the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Liquid Foundation in shade 1.5 ($40 US), the Rimmel Stay Matte Translucent Pressed Powder ($5.49 US), the Milani Make It Last Setting Spray ($9.99 US), the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Granite ($21 US), the Catrice Prime and Fine Professional Contouring Palette in 010 Ashy Radiance ($7.99 US), and the Elizabeth and James Nirvana Amethyst Rollerball Perfume ($28 US).  For pictures, I’ll leave the link to the first update here.

 

On the second update, I was able to finish an additional 3 products and declutter one.  Those products were the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Treatment Concealer in Fair ($9.99 US), the Wet N Wild Photofocus Pressed Powder in Warm Light ($4.99 US), and the Wet N Wild Single Shadow in Brulee ($0.99).  The decluttered item was the PUR Correcting Primer in Illuminate & Glow (discontinued).  The second update will be linked here for your convenience.

 

So, that means a total of 10 out of the original 13 products were finished or decluttered.  Let’s get into the last 3 items and see where I ended up!

No7 Match Made Bronzer – Finale

First up is the No7 Match Made Bronzer in Golden Sand ($12.99 US).  I am happy to say I finally, FINALLY hit my goal of hitting pan!  I have actually come to really enjoy this product!  I still have no idea whether or not No7 is a cruelty-free brand so I would not repurchase if I ever manage to use this product up, but I am so beyond thrilled at hitting some good pan in this product!

 

Next, we have the Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black Dry Shampoo ($28 US).  I don’t have progress pictures of this product because for one, the packaging is opaque and I’m not very good at guestimating where I’m at, but I am happy to say I completely finished up this product!  I really love the scent of Nirvana Black, I’ve just never been into dry shampoos, not because this didn’t work for me, just because I’ve never gotten into the habit of using them.  So, even though this scent is pure heaven for me, I would not repurchase.

Bath & Body Works Sensual Amber Fine Fragrance Mist

Last up, we have the Bath & Body Works Sensual Amber Fine Fragrance Mist ($14.50 US).  Sadly, I was not able to use up this bad boy, but DAMN did I make some killer progress!  I think if I keep up with it, I will be able to use it up by the end of November and move out another fragrance/body mist.  It pisses me off that Bath & Body Works decided to start selling in Mainland China because this is literally my ride or die body wash and body mist.  Assholes.  Oh well.

 

So that does it!  I can’t believe I finally followed through with a project pan and was this successful!  It’s amazing what you can do and work through once you stay dedicated to the products.  Coming up soon are going to be both my Movie Madness Project Pan and my 12 Pans of Christmas Project Pan updates, so keep an eye out for that!  I hope everyone had a killer Halloween!  Did any of you go through with the 13 by Halloween Project?  If so, let me know how you did in the comments!  Until next time!

13 By Halloween Project Pan – Update #2

LeahERaven.com | 13 By Halloween Project Pan Update #2

Hey everyone!  So sorry for the lack of posts, I’ve been a little preoccupied with other things and every time I think about posting something, I get sidetracked.  But here we are, happy Friday, and today I am bringing my 2nd update for my 13 By Halloween Project Pan.  I’m really excited to share I have additional empties this time around and some great progress on other products.  Last update I had finished up 6 out of the 13 items.  If you want to see what those items were, you can check out my 13 By Halloween Project Pan Update #1.  But, if you are interested to see where I am currently at with this project, then just keep scrolling!

1. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Treatment Concealer in Fair ($9.99 US)
FINISHED.  I am so happy to say I have finished off this bad boy and currently have all cruelty-free concealers in my collection!  I believe this is the second concealer I have ever finished and I am so thrilled!  I did enjoy the formula of this, very creamy.  It also worked great to cancel out the discoloration on my eyes and be a great eyeshadow primer, but not cruelty-free and my other concealers do just as well as this product.

Wet N Wild Photofocus Pressed Powder – Intro

2. Wet N Wild Photofocus Pressed Powder in Warm Light ($4.99 US)
FINISHED.  I knew, once I finished up the Rimmel powder with as much pan that was showing in this product, that I could easily finish up this powder.  I am personally not a fan of this powder, I felt I had to really dig at the product in order to pick up product on my brush.  I also felt that it did not set my makeup, everything was still tacky.  At work, hair would be sticking to my face more than normal.  So, happy this is out of my collection and I will not be repurchasing.

No7 Match Made Bronzer – Update #2

3. No7 Match Made Bronzer in Golden Sand ($12.99 US)
Dear God, the bronzer that won’t end!  I mean, it is a good bronzer, a little warm on my skin, but I can make it work.  But I SWORE I would have pan showing this update.  I mean, I could see the outlines of the rings, but nope.  I even took a pair of tweezers in the center to see how much product was on top of the pan.  Yeah… I don’t think I’m going to be hitting pan anytime soon.  Bronzers man, I tell ya.  Gotta keep on keeping on with this bad boy.

4. PUR Correcting Primer in Illuminate & Glow (discontinued)
DECLUTTERED.  I have tried with this primer, the first little bit, I kept forgetting about it.  However, this past month I have been pretty diligent with it but every time I used it for a couple days in a row, I would break out.  I’d stop using it, my skin would clear up, go back to using it, boom.  Breakouts.  Granted, I’ve mentioned this before that I don’t get terrible breakouts, maybe one or two very small zits, but when I’m used to practically clear skin, just a bit of texture, yeah.  That’s not going to work for me.  I also don’t have sensitive skin, so.  This is going to be decluttered.

Wet N Wild Single Eyeshadow in Brulee – Intro

5. Wet N Wild Single Eyeshadow in Brulee ($0.99 US)
FINISHED.  After I posted my first update, within a few days, this bad boy was done.  I really came to fall in love with this shade again but with so many cream shadows in all the palettes I own, I don’t need to purchase it.  Plus, I’m not the biggest fan of single shadows.  I don’t own a Z Palette and I tend to forget to reach for them.  If you like single shadows and are close to my skin tone, I really feel you would truly enjoy this product if you have not tried it.  Plus, it’s only a buck so yay on affordable products!

6. Bath & Body Works Sensual Amber Fragrance Mist ($14.50 US)
I have been making amazing progress on this product.  I am so proud of myself.  I have had this product for almost 3 years now and putting it in this project has really made me focus on it.  I don’t think I will be able to finish it by the next update but I feel I will be really close.  I’m thinking about doing the 19 in 2019 year long project next year and if I don’t finish this up by the end of this year, I will definitely throw it into that project.

 

7. Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black Dry Shampoo ($28 US)
Now, as I’ve said before I have a hard time using dry shampoos and on top of that, I have no idea where I am.  I think I’m little more than halfway done with this product but honestly, no idea.  This past month, however, I have made it a habit to use it on Wednesday’s.  I tend to wash my hair Saturday nights, so Wednesday is when I reach for this product to freshen up my hair a bit.  I know I won’t have it done by the end of this project, but hey!  Progress is progress!

 

So that’s it guys, that is currently where I am at with my 13 By Halloween Project pan.  I am so beyond thrilled that I have been able to stick with this project, work on these items and make a dent in my collection.  Have you been participating in this project as well?  If so, what progress have you made on your items?  Let me know in the comments!  Hopefully, I can get back on track with posting.  I don’t want to promise anything today, but I am definitely going to try.  I hope you guys have a great weekend and I will talk to you guys on Monday!
