Well I’ve decided to try and do a Pan Project for this year. I’m starting out on a low buy so I may as well focus on some of my favorite palettes to get some use out of them! I’m not going to pick a crazy amount right off the bat because I’ve never done a pan project before and I’ve literally never hit pan on any eyeshadow before 😂

I was inspired by Tayler from Tayler’s Edit! Go and check out her blog if you don’t know her 🙂

First up, the non eyeshadow:

We have three foundations! I told myself no more foundation until I finish at least one, and there are some foundations I would like to try 😁 I love all three of these (Urban Decay Naked Skin, NYX BB cream, and Too Faced Dew You), so I’ve just been alternating them so far. I know I’m going to repurchase the BB cream when I run out but I would like to try some other high end foundation.

Note Cosmetics Blush in Desert Rose. I love this blush!!! It’s literally my favorite and I got it in a BoxyCharm. It’s basically the only blush I wear anymore so even though it’s bigger, I think I will have no problem.

Wet n Wild bronzer. I don’t remember the specific shade but it’s the lighter one from the Fire Dragon vs Ice Dragon set. I just got this and I don’t wear bronzer a ton, so this one might be hard lol

Ofra highlighter in Glazed Donut. My favorite highlighter! I love this and wear it a ton but it’s such a huge pan and obviously it’s not something you use a ton of at once (I don’t anyways lol), so this might be a challenge. Plus I have a lot of other highlighters. But this was very expensive so I want to try and get it used!

The Eyeshadows (I’m hoping for 2-4 pans on each):

Morphe 24G Grand Glam. I love this palette but the pans are huge!

Ofra Pro Palette. This is a face palette so this might be challenging but this was one of my most expensive purchases so I want to try and feel like I got my money’s worth lol.

Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes. I love love love this and I think once spring and summer hit, I’m going to use this a lot!

Urban Decay Born to Run. I also really enjoy this palette and there’s a lot of shades, so I think I will be able to use it a lot without getting bored of it.

If I happen to do really well with these, I plan on adding some Jeffree Star palettes to the mix.

Are you doing a pan project? I’m excited for a new challenge 😊

So I was faced with a big decision haha…I had a very rare 20% off my whole order (prestige brands included!) for Ulta as well as had built up $20 off in points. I also promised my husband I would not buy eyeshadow until after Christmas after that purchase. So I knew it had to be something good. So I settled on something I have been eyeing for probably close to a year:

Ofra Pro Palette Free Spirit. This is online only at Ulta for $59. I swear it had a higher price point before but maybe I’m confusing it with their all highlighter palette that is a whopping $130 I believe. I rarely see any reviews for Ofra and when I do, it’s their highlighter. Which is great. I already own Glazed Donut. I also have a liquid lipstick I got in a BoxyCharm that I love. But I couldn’t take it anymore 😂 It was too pretty! So I bought it along with a new brush set and a lip set from Ulta for stocking stuffers.

First, I *love* the packaging. It’s sleek and thin. It’s magnetic. It’s sturdy. It does have a small mirror. And every pan easily pops out (they are held in with magnets and have a little dip you can get a finger in). So if you hit pan…you can buy an individual of something and pop it right in. Reusable palette!

There are neutral eyeshadow, pops of color eyeshadow, two highlighters (and one has several shades), a bronzer, two blushes, and a banana powder. It’s a whole face in one palette.

Everything swatched great. They are on the softer side, and I definitely stuck my finger in too hard in the banana powder and got it everywhere lol.

My only complaint so far is there is some kick up in the pans. Not so much fallout, but I had to keep blowing on the palette after using something so it didn’t get into a neighboring pan. I only actually applied stuff to my face once so far, but so far I am enjoying everything but the banana powder. It’s not for me.

I used three eyeshadows, mixed the two blushes, the bronzer, and two highlighters. Everything was easy to work with.

Anyone else own an Ofra palette? I can’t wait to try the blue shades next!
