I’ve mentioned before that I get a super satisfying feeling when I hit pan on a makeup product. I own a serious amount of makeup, and so much of it rarely gets used, that I know how much I like using a product when its one that I’ve actually ‘hit the silver bit’ on! This phenomenon doesn’t occur very often, but here are a few that I’ve recently reached pan on…
First up is the MAC ‘Carbon’ Eyeshadow individual pot. Carbon is a basic matte black shadow, not the blackest of black, but it’s pretty well pigmented. Now, I don’t use this as an eyeshadow per se, I’m far too much of a smokey eye novice for that sort of thing! I actually use this as an eyeliner. I apply this on the waterline with a slightly damp brush, and it works amazingly well as a dark black liner, it also lasts a surprisingly long amount of time. I also use it to set my liquid liner on the lid, going in over my liner with this on a small angled brush, as I find it helps my liner to last twice as long as it would otherwise. I have owned this little pot for more years than I should admit to, so it has lasted me ages through regular use!
I’ve mentioned this bad boy before, its the Physician’s Formula Super BB All-in-One Powder. I have serious love for this little compact. It’s such a great setting powder, it adds light coverage and blends really well on the skin, leaving a flawless finish. It doesn’t leave an overly cakey or powdery look on the skin, it eliminates shine but doesn’t give a ‘flat’ matte finish either, just a natural look. This compact has lasted me ages, as you only need to apply it with a light hand, so I’m sure it’ll take me a little bit longer to finish it up!
Finally, I can’t believe I’ve actually hit pan on my NARS Orgasm blush. It is the most beautiful peachy pink shade that has a hint of shimmer, perfect for most skin tones. This is one of my all time favourite makeup items, it gives such a beautiful natural flush to my cheeks, and it lasts on the skin all day. I love the rubberised black compact, and the little mirror included means its great for carrying in your handbag or for travel. I’ll be sad to finish this one up, but luckily I have a back up in the miniature that I got in my NARS Glossybox!
So that’s your lot! Although I’ve hit pan on these 3 products, it’ll probably be ages until you see them feature in an Empties post, as I tend to savour my favourite products when I’m close to finishing them!
