Project Pan: 10 To Finish In 2017

We are already halfway through this year, can you believe it? Therefore, as we commence the second half of the year I thought I would carry out a project pan and try to finish up as many products as possible by the end of the year.
If you didn't know already, a project pan is where you have a group of products that you want to hit pan on and finish by a certain period of time. It's a brilliant way of getting the full use out of products you have in your collection plus, once you finish them it leaves you with a gap in your collection ready for you to have a justifiable reason to buy more!

Benefit POREfessional Pro Balm Primer-Review £26.00
A well-loved primer in the beauty industry and I want to use it up as quick as possible, what's going on? My skin has changed so much since buying this primer, it's become a lot drier and my pores aren't as enlarged and oily as before. Therefore, this primer doesn't do a lot for my skin, if anything it makes it drier so I tend to just use this on my nose now instead of my whole face.

Barry M Flawless Colour Correcting Primer-Review £5.99
I went through a phase of using this every single day alongside my Barry M flawless foundation but since finishing that up I haven't touched this primer as much. It's a great silicone-like primer if dabbed on the red areas of the skin, to help discolour redness. I just need to get back into the habit of applying this as well as the Benefit one.

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer £5.49
I've never liked this concealer. I've never been able to get along with it, it literally does nothing for me but I'm so determined to use it up just so that I can rant about it in my empties post! Sad I know but I just cannot get the love and hype of this product.

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer-Review £18.00
This used to be my holy grail concealer for absolutely ages as is stays on the skin all day and covers everything and I mean everything! However, I'm pretty sure that it is near the end, as it's thicker than before but there is so little left that I just want to use it up regardless of the consistency.

Freedom Pro Blush in Angelica
I don't tend to wear much blush but whenever I do go to use this product it kicks up so much product when you dip your brush in that your left with dusty powder everywhere. It is very pigmented, regardless of the aftermath, and it produces a pretty coral colour on the cheeks. It is quite tedious to use which is why I want to just hit pan on it then I'd be happy to let it go.

Technic Highlights Highlighter-Review £2.99
This highlight is a dupe for Benefit's high beam, nearly identical in formula, shade and texture these two have the complete opposite sides of the spectrum when it comes to the price tag. I'm not really a fan of highlights in general, don't shoot me, but the fact that it's a liquid and you have to use it before powder I always forget so it's just a hassle. Not only that but it can leak which is even more annoying!
Maybelline New York Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara £4.99
I neglected this brow product because I found a love in Benefit's gimme brow and now that's the only product I want to have. This isn't as comparable to that one and you can tell a difference. Although it's a standard brow mascara, I find that it does do its job in keeping the brows in place but it doesn't do much more.

Avon True Colour Glimmerstick Eyeliner in Brighten Up Pink £6.00
I've had this eyeliner for donkeys now so it definitely needs using up before the end of this year otherwise it'll be heading straight for the bin. It's a lovely creamy liner in this beautiful pastel pink shade however, pinks don't look the best on me but I'll try to work at it.

Rimmel London Colour Rush Balm in Keep Mauving £5.99
Just like the Avon eyeliner this lip product has been sat in my collection for probably double the time it is supposed to be. I'm pretty sure this was one of the first lip products that I'd owned and thought you know what I love it. It's a creamy and hydrating lip product which adds a pretty touch of colour to the lips. I'm probably not going to finish it by the end of the year but I'm hoping to make some progress on it.

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Kate Moss Lipstick in 105-Review
I do like this lipstick but I have others in my collection which are nearly identical to this one and you cannot purchase this one anymore. Don't get me wrong the colour is beautiful and great for everyday wear but I don't need three or so of the same. The only reason I picked this one out of the lot is because it's the closest one to being finished.
I have drawn small lines on the products as of when I've created this post to show where how much was left and I will do an update in a couple of months time to see the usage and once again at the end of the year to see how well I've done. As for lipsticks and liners, I clearly can't draw on them so I've written in my notebook a measurement of usage at the start, you'll also see all of the comparison photos throughout this project.

Are there any products here that you think I will finish or not? Have you done a project pan before and how well did it go? Thanks for reading, you can find me here:
