Welcome to my new palette series of 2018: Pan That Palette! I have two palettes in mind for this project, and today we’ll be discussing the first. Last year, I spent every other Tuesday reviewing palettes in my One Week One Palette series. This year, I’ll be working through palettes already in my collection!
Why am I doing Pan That Palette? For one thing, I want to see how far I can get toward using up an entire palette. I’ve always been a huge fan of project panning and love the idea of making the most of the makeup collection I already own.
I will be working through two palettes simultaneously and keeping track of my progress in one blog post per palette each month.

Why I Chose This Palette
I received this palette in a BoxyCharm at least a year ago, maybe more. I loved it right away, and had been using it consistently for a few months right after receiving it. Not only that, but this palette turned into my go-to travel palette during the year 2017.
I decided to (attempt to) pan this palette because I had already made a significant dent in it and because I want to try to get as much use out of it as humanly possible. It’s so easy to create everyday, work-friendly looks with this palette. I was more than happy to break it back out this week to kick off the project and am happy to say that I still love it as much as I did in the beginning. The main purpose of panning makeup products is to make sure you’re getting your money’s worth out of the makeup already in your collection. I certainly want to make the most of everything I have in my collection, and starting with one of my most loved palettes is a great way to begin.
Of course, as this project unfolds, I will still be using plenty of other palettes in conjunction with this one. The great thing about this palette is that it’s very neutral and easy to pair with almost any look. I have many all shimmer palettes that will be perfect to pair with the beautiful mattes in this palette. I’m excited to see how this is going to challenge me!
As I mentioned earlier, I did get some heavy use out of this palette when it first arrived. You can see pretty clearly here that my most loved shade is the very light shimmer in the upper left. I already have significant pan on that and anticipate that this will be the first color to be used up.
It’s a little more difficult to see, but I do have significant dents going in the top middle light matte shade and the second row’s left-hand matte brown. I’m definitely going to be digging into the other two light shimmers quite a bit more than I have, so I’m anticipating more progress on those by the next update. The matte black is more than likely going to be the most challenging shadow in this palette to work through. Time to get creative!
Overall, I’m very much looking forward to working through this project and seeing how much progress I can get going on this palette. I’ve been inspired by many project pan YouTubers over the past few years, and I’m finally dipping my toe into the water. Wish me luck!
