Pan That Palette Update.

Heeeello, everyone!

I've been avoiding sharing with you an update on the palette I'm currently panning because, honestly, I don't have a lot of progress to share. I don't know what's going on.. I've been using these eyeshadows every single day for months now and I've made very little progress. Maybe they're too tightly pressed, maybe I apply too little eyeshadow, maybe these pans are just too big - I seriously don't know what's going on. All I know is that if this wasn't so old, I would definitely recommend getting it since these eyeshadow will probably last me a lifetime. 

I usually use this shades during the week and on the weekends I allow myself to play with my other palettes. However, whenever I'm going for a natural look I tend to use these shades - no matter what day of the week it is. I thought this would be a good game plan to pan this palette. As it turns out, it wasn't.. I've been panning this since last year and I haven't got very far, which is giving me low-key anxiety. Anyway, let's get to the update!


As you can see in the pictures, the highlight shade is the one that has more progress in it - aside from the light brown that I've already panned. The brown shade you're seeing there is just a bronzer I repressed in the empty pan so I could use as a transition shade. This highlight shade is white with golden shimmer, making it very hard for me to use it anywhere else but my eyes. I tried it as face highlight, it didn't work out. 

Next we have the new brown shade. Like I said, this is an elf bronzer I repressed there. I've been trying to pan this bronzer for ages, but since I don't use bronzer everyday I decided to repressed a chunk of it in the empty in order to have an easily accessible transition shade. This bronzer works great in the crease and I usually mix in a bit of the pink in the crease as well. I actually love the look of pink or orange shades on the crease, it just looks so tropical. 

Aside from using it in the crease, I use the pink shade as a blush as well. Everyday. So I have no idea why I don't have more pan showing. This is very pigmented, so applying more of it in order to use it up faster is not a good idea, unless I want to look like a clown. 

There's not much to say about the deep purple shade. I've used it maybe two times since starting this challenge. It's chalky and I have no idea how to incorporate it in a look, so if you have any suggestions please leave them in the comments, they will be much appreciated. 

I actually love the dark brown shade. I know the amount of pan showing doesn't support this idea but it's true. It's a dark brown with pink shimmer, what's not to love about it? It looks great on the crease and I've been meaning to try it all over the lid, kinda like a one shade look, but I always forget to pull out this palette on weekends. 

That's my update, guys! I seriously have no idea what to do anymore. I feel like my creativity has run out and I don't know how to spice things up with only these shades. I do use different palettes during the weekend and limit myself to only this palette on an "everyday" basis, but I'm very discouraged to keep using it. So, I'm thinking about taking a break and maybe switching things up. I don't know if I should try panning a different palette or if I should just give myself a week to rest. Let me know what you think and if you have any tips on how to use these shades faster!
