Rolling Project Pan Update #5

It’s no surprise that I have abandoned this blog for the last half a year while trying to figure out things in my life. Admittedly, the biggest reason why I stopped blogging was because I felt I was buying too much makeup and didn’t feel good about where my collection was going. But the truth is I love makeup and always finding myself coming back so here we are. I thought I’d start with a project pan update because while I pretty much stopped tracking all the products per se, I finally hit my goal on one very challenging product. I am also having a bit of an overhaul of the project so this will be a long post. Continue reading “Rolling Project Pan Update #5”

Rolling Project Pan Update #4

This update is definitely long overdue (#3 was published on Mar 31st) and I think I reached a point with this project when I’m not as excited as I was at the beginning. To be fair, in order to see progress on some of the products, I’ve neglected others and even then, it’s taken me longer to get there than I initially thought. I’ve not been too good focusing on some of the products and the prospects of adding in extra just doesn’t appeal to me so I’m rolling in less than I’m rolling out.

Rolling Project Pan Update #3

In my last update I was fairly certain, I won’t have much progress for a while but actually quite happy with what I’ve reached my goal on. Mainly because since starting this project in November, I’ve finally began to see progress on some of my powder products. Today I’m rolling in a few of my forgotten favourites and am definitely excited for a bit of a change in my everyday makeup routine. Continue reading “Rolling Project Pan Update #3”

Makeup Inventory – Category and Cost Analysis

Did I mention that I have a slight compulsion towards spreadsheets? And while I have used one to track my wardrobe inventory last year, I finally decided to pull one together for my makeup collection. I feel like to some extent ‘makeup inventory’ is just the new makeup collection concept but it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t let some of my work analysis creep into this. Like my wardrobe inventory, I have Excel spreadsheet set up for every single makeup product I own but in no way will I be able to track cost per wear, nor do I find it necessary. For the purpose of this post, I have focused on yearly spending, category breakdown and threw in a brand diagram as a bonus.

Rolling Project Pan Update #2


To be completely honest, I have frequent mood swings in regards to this project and frankly, I just wish you’d see progress on powder products quicker but looking back at the three months of formal project panning, I definitely played with makeup more than I have for a while. Some discoveries have been made in that I’ve been quite successful panning lipsticks and pencil products, don’t mind using the same eyeshadow despite minimal progress but struggle quite a bit with face products so I will probably keep those to a minimum from now on (says while she rolls in a baked blush).
