I finally did it. I finally hit pan! Granted, it’s not for a color cosmetic like an eyeshadow or a lipstick, but for a product that I’ve been using pretty much everyday, on and off for two years. Behold: the dark shade of my The Body Shop Brow & Liner Kit in 02 is showing some silver. YAAAAAS!
I’ve attempted a lot of Project 10 Pan batches, but I’m really more of a rotater than a MUST-FINISH-THIS-THING so it didn’t work out so well. A lot of the stuff, I ended up giving away, and some I threw out. I suppose this puts my makeup buying into perspective.
I don’t feel ashamed or guilty that I’ve amassed a sizable collection, but I just realized just how much I would have to keep using something to finish it up. I’m not too iffy with expiration dates, except for mascara and when something starts to smell funky, so I don’t really bother too much with monitoring which cosmetics might “go bad.”
As Gandalf wisely said, “If in doubt, Meriadoc, always follow your nose.”
