Last month, I kicked off my first Pan That Palette project of the year. To recap, I chose the Studio Makeup On-The-Go: The Warm Up palette that I received in a BoxyCharm a year or two back. It had become one of my favorite palettes and also one in which I had made a significant dent.
Today we’re taking a look at the progress I made in the first month. Let’s see how I did!
As you can see from the picture, I have some pretty large pan showing in the cream shimmer and the cream matte colors in the top left. When I started this project, I had a little pan in the shimmer, but I expanded it quite a bit this month. I did not have any pan on the matte shade at that time, but once I started using it consistently to set my primer, this color began to go fast.
I also made a significant dent in the brown transition shade on the second row. I’d be willing to bet that there will be pan showing on that shade by March. This month, I began digging into the center coppery shimmer as well. The shimmers seem to go much faster than the mattes in this palette, so with some additional consistent use, it won’t be long before there’s a dip going there as well.
Thoughts from the Past Month
Even though I wasn’t planning to, I decided at the last minute to take this palette with me to Disney. I was just too excited to keep making progress! While I was there, I was able to experiment with some new looks and that’s what led me to the copper shimmer. This shade has now become one of my favorites. Surprisingly, I haven’t been loving the gold shimmer in the top right as much as I thought I would. It just isn’t as vibrant as I want it to be.
I’ve barely made any progress in the bottom 3 darker colors. I do use these to deepen a look when needed, but that only takes a small amount each time. Since I tend to gravitate toward lighter looks, I need to make sure I spend some time focusing on these three colors more in the coming months.
Here is a closer look a the comparison between months one and two:
Overall, I’m quite happy with this month’s progress, and I can’t wait to see what I can get done by my next update in March!
