You'll get there, I stray from my naked palette on a pretty regular basis but it goes through phases. And hey, maybe you'll hit pan on a smoked shadow in the mean time.

The beautiful thing about hitting pan is once you see a little metal, the spot keeps growing exponentially larger :)

 

We are all truly nuts, you know that right? :)

oh jeez, i have the full size and i use it about 3 times per week...i'l never hit pan!!!  But when I use it I use it as shadow AND blush at the same time...I do have to use quite a bit to get it to show up on my lids so maybe that'll quicken the process.

I love it when people post pictures in this thread, so here's the progression I made in March. This is the Becca Halcyon Days palette, which came out in 2011. I hit pan on two shades (Faille and Chamois, in the middle and first from right) AND used up the lip gloss (Mai Tai). I absolutely love this palette, it's my go-to for neutral days. I'm going to be both sad and thrilled when I finally finish the eyeshadows. Then again doesn't hitting pan always result in mixed emotions? icon_rolleyes.gif

 

It says on the palette that it should have been used up within six months, but... ehh. Everything still seems fine, even the lip & cheek creme, although I'm not sure if I should discontinue using it and just use up the eyeshadows. Hmm.

Proud of you!! My Mary Lou-Manizer has a nice dent in it but no pan yet. I use it about 5x a week since it can in my BB in November (or dec?). It doesn't take too much to show up on me but I have mostly been using it as an eyeshadow.

I DID IT GUYS. Pan on my hot mama by thebalm blush sample. YEAH.

Mary lou is taking longer for me, but I'm getting there. Just so hapy to be at the pan with hot mama, I'll miss it when its gone but I have so many other blushes I can work through before I ever need to rebuy. And a lot of them are cargo and therefore HUGE. urghhh.

Lololol. This might sound really dumb but I've never let myself purchase a cargo blush because I know I'll never get through it and it will sit on my makeup stand forever.

hahaha, that is a great reason. I have probably 6 or 7 of them from a little black bag addiction about a year ago, and oh boy do I regret. Thankfully I didn't spend 26 dollars a piece on them though!

I used to be addicted to the Cargo lip glosses in the big tins before they discontinued them. They weren't that hard to get through because the tin was really large, but not that deep. I assumed it would be the same with the blushes, but I take it the Cargo blush pans are deeper? I had a shade (Louisiana) on my "potential buys" list, but I might have to rethink that and save it till after I make a bigger dent in my own blush stash.

Idk about the lipgloss, but for reference a NARS blush which is similar in price is .16 ounces and cargo is twice that at .32. Its gonna be FOREVER.

I hot pan on my purminerals 4 in1 foundation. Although... there is a LOT on the sides.  But it's difficult to use now, so I guess I'll keep the old one as a concealer, and use the new one for foundation, thus negating the 4 in 1 function Lol. I had plans of knocking it out and putting it into a tin, but when I did that with my powder, it didn't work very well. - too much loose powder and it slid all over when I tried to put my brush in.  Is there a product to get it to stick to the middle???

've been wanting to do this sort of post for a loooong while now but never got round to it.  Since then I've accumulated much more items that I've hit pan on.  Since I do tend to stick with using the same products despite drowning in makeup, many of these are items I use everyday.

IMG_7694.jpg [/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Here are the majority of them....and then I found some more later lol.[/TD] [/TR]
1. Laura Mercier Hydrating Primer ($40 for 3.4 fl oz or 100 ml)
IMG_7695.jpg
This has been my go to primer for the past year or so since I've purchased the XL version at Sephora in October 2011.  I like it because it feels more like a moisturizer, as opposed to most silicone based primers that leave a freakishly smooth feel on the skin.  However, as a primer it's not all that.  It doesn't even out skin tone (not that it claims to since it's a hydrating primer) and is just okay when it comes to making my foundation last longer.  I do find that I get a little bit shiny after 4 or 5 hours.  If you have super dry skin and need the extra hydration, you are better off using an additional moisturizer in addition to your primer.  I found this out during my last trip to Quebec, where the harsh winter air simply ate up the moisture in my skin.
 
2. Aveeno Baby Daily Moisture Lotion ($6 for 8 oz or 227g)
IMG_7730.jpg
I'm a big fan of the Aveeno line, and I discovered that the Aveeno baby line was a little more affordable than their other lotions.  I purchased this back in my undergrad days and I still have a bit to use up.  It's a good moisturizer in that it is very gentle, and is best for normal skin types.  If you have super dry skin, you will definitely need something more moisturizing.  This is a nongreasy formula but does take a little while to absorb into the skin as I find with most Aveeno lotions.
 
3. Neutrogena Daily Moisturizer with SPF 50 ($16 for 1 fl. oz.)
IMG_7698.jpg
I'm very good at using this moisturizer during the summer when it's hot as hell, but not very good with it the rest of the year.  This moisturizer does have that slight tacky feel upon application as most products containing high SPF have, but it's definitely light enough to wear under makeup.  To me, it is rather expensive for a drugstore product but you can often find these on sale for BOGO 1/2 off.
 
4. EOS Lip Balms in Summer Fruit ($3.29 for 0.25oz or 7g)
IMG_7699.jpg
I was actually obsessed with these guys for a while, and I've used up at least 2 of these.  I really liked the idea of these being organic and natural, but most of all, I loved the scent and taste.  They're actually not the best lip balms, as they feel more waxy than moisturizing.  However, I like using these before applying lipstick because I find that it doesn't give the lipstick as much slip as a more moisturizing lip balm would.  
 
5. Eve Pearl Dual HD Foundation in Light ($56 for 11.77g or .41oz)
IMG_7700.jpg
Yes, this is a very very expensive foundation.  Lucky for me, I picked it up on Hautelook for around $15.  This is actually the old packaging.  But who cares?  This is the best foundation I have ever used.  Ever.  Even as a noob, my face looked airbrushed when I used this.  I found that the darker side matched my face so I used the lighter side for undereye concealing.  The coverage is absolutely fantastic, and I find that I don't have to go back to do extra spot concealing.  I try to save this for special occasions because it's so amazing and there's not a whole of product in the pans (less than half of what comes in most foundations!).  I do continue to use the lighter side for under eye concealing though.
 
 
6. Too Faced eyeshadow in Heaven from Natural Eye Palette ($36 for 11.4g or 0.39oz)
IMG_7704.jpg
This palette is godly.  When I need something to look professional, glamorous, or both, this is my go to palette.  Heaven is the PERFECT matte brow highlight for me.  I use Sexpresso for my brows.  These shadows are long lasting with or without primer.  I've had my makeup on for about 35 hours before and my eyebrows (Sexpresso) remained perfect.
 
7. Too Faced Smoky Eye Palette (discontinued)
IMG_7707.jpg
Too Faced does have a Smoky Eye Palette out but it has been redone.  This one is the original and was the first of these sorts of boxed palettes to be released.  I acquired this eons ago (October 2008) and it is my very first eyeshadow palette.  The eyeshadows are a lot more powdery and the fallout is terrible, and I'm pleased to say that the formula of their other boxed eyeshadow palettes have improved since then.  Obviously, the neutral colors I have hit pan on because I leaned towards those when I first started wearing makeup regularly.
 
 
8. Smashbox Healthy FX Foundation in Light 3 ($38 for 1fl. oz.)
IMG_7709.jpg
This is my very first foundation.  The one that the SA at Sephora recommended to me when I first walked in October 2008.  This is actually my second bottle so don't freak out too much about how old it is.  This is a lightweight, oil free formula that provides medium coverage at most.  It does help cover redness and helps even out skin tone nicely while keeping my complexion looking natural.  A great everyday foundation overall.
 
9. NARS Bronzer in Laguna ($36 for 0.28 oz)
IMG_7710.jpg
This is a cult favorite, a very expensive bronzer, and I really truly did not want to like it.  I finally caved in when I tried contouring with it at Sephora and noticed a natural but definite contour in the hollow of my cheeks upon application.  Since then I can't seem to be able to get that same wonderful contour for some odd reason, but it makes a lovely all over bronzing powder.  I've been using this guy every day for a little over a year, hence the huge dent.
 
10. Kirkland Baby Wipes ($20 for 900 wipes)
IMG_7784.jpg
I flattened these so you could hopefully see how close I am to finishing the packets.  I want to clarify that I do not use baby wipes for makeup removal.  I use them to wipe foundation or hairspray off my hands.  I use them to break down my face makeup before going in with a facial cleanser.  I use them to dampen brushes.  I use them everyday.  They don't break me out, do their job as wipes, and are fairly inexpensive.
 
11. Inglot Gel Liner in 77 ($12 for 5.5g or 0.19 oz)
IMG_7729.jpg
Last but not least, you have my favorite long wearing eyeliner.  This product is no joke.  Wherever you put it, it will stay on until your skin peels off or you remove it.  Removing it is a battle of its own unless you have an EXCELLENT eye makeup remover on your hands.  Blacker than my heart and super smooth formula.  Dries almost instantly.  I don't know how I survived without this for most of my life.
 
There you have it folks.  Congratulations for making it through the entire post.  I've been writing this post for about two weeks now.  I don't know if my attention span is going down the drain or I require bursts of inspiration nowadays to let the words flow out of my brain.  
 
Great post ! I enjoyed reading it a lot ;)

Good luck! I'm hoping I'll hit pan on Foxy someday. It's my fave highlight color, and use it almost everyday. I doubt that I'll hit pan on any other eyeshadow, ever.

 

I really like this thread. I wish I could post here more often!

    • I am putting more emphasis on the undereye area. I'm 35 and my skin needs more moisturizing. Twice a day I apply eye serum under eyes, and I never miss this ritual as after several weeks of continuous use I see amazing results: moisturized skin and absolutely no puffiness under eyes. I am using this one from Verneso https://www.amazon.com/s?k=eye+cream&hidden-keywords=B07PPW6J7M&ref=nb_sb_noss_1 Many undereye serums dry out the undereye area and this results in fine lines and wrinkles. Verneso bee venom eye serum contains peptides, vitamins A and E as well as Shea Butter which rejuvenate, tighten and smoothen the undereye area. For me it's the best undereye serum, and I will definetly buy one more bottle during this Amazon Prime Day.
