I thought it would be fun to do something a little different, and check out the products I have actually hit pan on.
5 Products I’ve Hit Pan On
The products that kind of sparked this post was hitting pan on 2 shades in the Dior mini quint and the 2 blushes. I was surprised to see pan on a full size blush, I guess I shouldn’t have put off picking it up for so long! With all the eyeshadow palettes that I have, I can’t believe I hit pan on not just one shade but 2 in a mini palette.
Quite a bit of pan showing on most of these products. The 3 face products I have had for about 4 years, and I know I probably shouldn’t still be using them! I am the only using them though. The eyeshadows are probably just over a year old I think so thats pretty good!
I have hit pan on 3 face products, which is surprising to me. I have had pan showing on the Benefit ‘Hoola’ bronzer for quite some time, I think that bronzer will last forever! I had put it in a project pan from 4 years ago…. I probably shouldn’t still be using it, but it hasn’t changed at all yet. I still use it as a light contour on my cheeks and thats about all. Too Faced ‘Baby Love’, is one of my favourite blushes to use when I am not sure what I want to use, it is just one of those shades that go with anything. I don’t use the Too Faced blush anymore though, what is left in the pan just seems to flake out of the pan whenever I use it now. I have used ‘I will Always Love You’ as well as ‘Love Hangover’, just no where near as much. Tarte ‘Exposed’ is another favourite blush shade to use when I am not sure what shade I want to use! ‘Exposed’ is the biggest surprise to have hit pan on out of the face products though, its a full size one and there is ALOT of pan showing on that one. It took me forever to pick up this blush, even though I had been saying for quite some time that I wanted it, I’m glad my sister told me to just pick it up already.
I am so surprised that I have hit pan on 3 eyeshadows! The Dior quint in ‘Undress’ is only a mini sample size but the Wet N Wild is a full size. The Dior quint is one I was wanting to pick up during a SDM Bonus Redemption but they were sold out of this one, but they had this little one with a Mascara so I picked it up. I obviously like it though! This is a perfect set of shades for a more natural everyday work eye look. I pull this one out whenever I am in a rush and don’t want to think about what I want to do with my eyeshadow. I do find that I have to build up the shades more so than other shadows, but like I said I always pull this one out when I am rushed, it is just the perfect mix of shades that are so easy to wear. I do use this mini with other single shadows as well, I especially like to use it with the Laura Mercier Cavier shadow sticks! Wet N Wild in ‘Brûlée’ is the shadow I use everyday to set my eye primer, it is the perfect shade for me. There isn’t much I can say about Brûlée that you probably haven’t already heard before. This shadow stays on my desktop so its always handy for everyday use.
The one take away that I have from seeing the products I have hit pan on, is that if I keep going back to a product and wanting it for awhile, there is a reason for that! All of the products that I hit pan on are ones that I use at least once a week if not more. I can see myself picking up another Tarte blush in Exposed when I run out of the one I have. I was going to say that I would pick up the Dior quint, until I saw how much it is…$77.00 CAD!! I think that is a tad high for 5 shades, I’ll maybe wait for another bonus redemption weekend at SDM to pick it up!
Have you hit pan on anything recently? Were you surprised by anything? Let me know.
