I only tend to hit pan on highlight eyeshadows and face powders.
The rest I either lose somewhere or it becomes useless for wahtever reason. And I do not collect staple items so I only generally have one foundation, one pressed powder, one mascara, one primer etc.
What I have here are my routine products that I use nearly every day and have done so for probably few years to many :S
Check this out:
Curious about details regarding these products? Keep on reading ;))
First I have my basic shimmery white from a BeYou trio. I highlight the inner corner and around the tearduct practically everyday. I also use this shadow to set white pencil or to highlight my cheekbones.
Another shimmery white that I use is the one from IsaDora's Pearls quad. Amazing quality, love this.
Also from the same quad, I've hit the pan on the light taupy color. This color I've been wearing every day in december. If it wasn't the focus color on the lid, I swept it on my lower lashline.
Also used to the pan is a skintone ''highlight'' from IsaDora Classic Browns palette. For me, this is waaaay too dark to be I highlight, in fact, I use it to contour my cheeks. Yeah, I'm that pale! I expect this to run out pretty soon.
Then, my Bourjois foundation - all gone.
L'occitane shea butter lipbalm - almost gone.
Dr. Bronner's Magic All-one balm, minty - I only just made a small dent and hit a tiny bit of pan.
Nyx round lipgloss
Left: pink gloss, 11 Strawberry.
Right: Shiney Ice that I mixed a bright copper pigment in
Elf mineral eyeshadow primer: only 1/3 left
Essence stay-all-day concealer only has about 10 % of the product left but the picture doesn't show that too well.
Mkay so that is a total of
1 powder foundation
Lets not count the balms, since I think they are more skin care.
So that is total of 9 make-up items used. I'm quite surprised that most people never had a full-size product with a pan hit. How many have you hit the pan on?
Tinkerbelldani ask which of the products would I repurchase.
A big YES:
- IsaDora Eyeshadows. To me they work the best and I'm rarely disappointed in the pigmentation and performance. Sadly, this particular quad was discontinued so I can't repurchase as much as I want to :((
- Dr. Bronner's Magic lipbalm. My love, very moisturizing. it's the kind of moisture that sinks in your skin as opposed to creating a thick protective layer. So it's not best to wear it outside in cold, but it fantabulous for lips repair. My summer favourite is mint flavour, but for irritated lips I really need the unscented version
A big NO
Bourjous fundation. Wrong color, wrong undertone, too dark.
Essence concealer. It oxsidizes to orange.
BeYou trios. Shimmer is too flaky and it's not sold in Slovenia anymore.
A undecisive MAYBE
L'occitane shea butter.
I feel I'm paying for the brand name.
I adore shea butter and trust it to protect my lips if I go outside in winter cold. But I'll be buying somewhere where it's cheaper.
Everything about them is amazing apart from the cheap stuff they are made of. I'm not going to be buying them because they use the cheapest perservatives they can. Because I have petrochemicals-free alternatives accessible to me, I'm not interested in this brand any longer.
Elf mineral primer
I have dry skin. This is a drying type of primer. I have no use of it.
