This year I am starting my first *official* themed yearlong project pan – Pan That Palette 2018. Eyeshadow palettes are the products that tempt me most often, but that are the hardest to finish. In fact, up until this year, I’ve only moved a palette out of my collection because I trashed it, returned it, sold or donated it. However, this year, my goal is to use up an entire eyeshadow palette. Can I do it? Keep reading for my 2018 Pan That Palette Introduction.

Pan That Palette 2018 Introduction
I want 2018 to be the year I completely finish an eyeshadow palette. Knowing that certain formulas of eyeshadow are packed more densely (looking at you Urban Decay), I chose a palette that I think I could finish by the end of the year.
Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadow formula is quite soft and powdery, so working through one of her palettes seems feasible. In fact, the Master Palette by Mario was one of my favorite purchases of 2016 – it is also one of my top ranked Anastasia Beverly Hills Palettes. The shades are wearable and versatile. Also, within my collection, this is the only palette that already has pan on two shadows. – Marina and 5th Ave.
My go-to looks are often two or three shade combinations with Lula and Isabel blended into my crease and one of the shimmers all over the eyelid.
Despite my love for blue eyeshadows, I don’t often wear them in my adult life. Therefore, using Claudia will be difficult. In fact, in the year that I’ve owned this palette, I’ve only ever swatched that shade. Similarly, I love to wear neutral green colors such as Bronx. However, I find that I reach for my L’Oreal Color Riche single in Green Promenade instead.
Additionally, the past six months or so I haven’t wanted to wake up early enough to wear makeup. Work has been wearing me down. However, when I do find time to wear makeup, I will typically apply base products rather than eyeshadow. To finish this palette, I need to start wearing makeup 5-6 days a week, rather than 1-2 days.
