Pan That Palette Update // September, 2017.

Heeello, everyone!

I'm so excited to share this month's progress on my Pan That Palette today, because I've finally made actual progress on it. You can check out my previous updates right here, I'd highly suggest doing that so you can be proud of me. For those of you who don't know, I'm trying to pan the Kiko Milano Street Fashion Palette in Addictive Song until the end of the year - I don't think I'm going to make it, but I'll at least try. I started out with two other palettes on this challenge besides this one, but I decided to just throw them out along the process. They were old (older than this one) and they were pissing me off. 

I originally chose this one because I thought it was going to easy. Boy, was I wrong! These pans are huge and there's a lot of product in them, specially the highlight shade.. Nobody needs that much highlight, Kiko! But, I'm working on it.. A little bit at a time. I've made peace with the fact that I won't be able to finish it all up this year, mostly because of the pink and the burgundy.. They're hard shades to incorporate on a look, guys. Anyway, let's get to the palette!
As you can see, I've finally hit a respectable size pan on the dark brown. I've been working on it for ages, but since I don't go for dark smokey looks on a day-to-day basis, I was only using it to set my brown eyeliner (which, I'm proud to report, is finished and will be featured on this month's empties thankyouverymuch.) This is a gorgeous shade. You can't see it in the pictures, but there's dark pink glitter in it and it looks beautiful all over the lid - I know dark pink glitter doesn't seem very appealing, but it looks great on the eyes, trust me. 

I think the most visible progress is on the highlight shade. I use it everyday and I think there should be more progress on it, but there's just too much product. My go-to look is this shade on the lid and the light brown on the crease mixed with a little bit of the pink. This combo gives a sunset vibes to the look, which I think is very pretty. There's a dip on the pink, but nothing major. The light brown was repressed, so it looks a little weird, but I'm making progress. I don't have anything like this brown on my collection so I'm not in a hurry to finish it. 

I've given up on the burgundy (wine shade.) It's really chalky and it doesn't look very good in the crease, which is the only place I would put this shade. I have no idea what to do with it. If you have any suggestions, please let me know on the comments. I didn't even touch this shade this month. I think I'm gonna try doing a look with it on the lid or something this month. 

The goal for this month is to finish up the light brown completely. I've been doing things out of the house more and that means wearing more makeup, so I think I can do it. I would really like to hit pan on the pink shade, but that's a stretch. I think I can also use up the bottom portion of the white, like the sides and maybe expend the pan a little. And I'm setting the bar really low with the wine shade, I just want to try to incorporate it in a few looks this month. I'm determined and I will use up this palette - maybe not this year, but I will. 

That's all for today, guys! I can't believe Everyday September is almost over. I've been loving blogging everyday, but I'm not sure if I'll keep going. It's a lot (I repeat, A LOT) of work, I actually had no idea how hard it was going to be, but I'm glad I did. I'm currently unemployed, so maybe I'll keep it up until I find a job or something. I know I missed three days, so I'll extend Everyday September until October 3rd, but I'll keep you guys posted on what I'll do next!

Are you also doing the Pan That Palette?!
Did you make any progress on your palette?!

Let's hang some more!

Thanks so much for stopping by and come back soon!
