Urban Decay Creep eyeshadow in the NAKED palette, which is surprising. I didn’t realize I used it enough to hit pan. I’ve been trying to hit pan on Half Baked since it’s almost there (why I don’t know I don’t even like the colour but I just happened to notice I was close to hitting pan on it) but it won’t go awaaaaaaaaaay.

The only thing I ever hit pan on was the Cream eyeshadow from Lorac’s Pro palette because I was using it exclusively for my browbone. I ended up selling that palette because that was the only shade I was using so I figured it deserved more love from someone else :).

How did you sell it Aida? I have soooo many palettes, shadows etc that I buy, sometimes only swatch a shade or two, and end up not using (like UD Naked Palette). I would love to find them a new home, and help repay some of the money I’ve shelled out (and buy more?!).

I know it’s crazy, but sometimes I’ll want something, and then when I get it, I don’t want to use it and mess it up, or I use it a time or two, and find that it just doesn’t work well for me. I’m sure I’m not alone in this fellow makeup junkies 😉

I sold it on my blog sale. Some of the people I follow on twitter were nice enough to RT my blog sale :). I know exactly what you mean!

Physician’s Formula powder palette “multi-colored light bronzer.” I don’t hit pan often, but this shade is a bit light for me, so I used to really load it on. I was using this a lot before I bit the bullet on high-end bronzers. Sad old compact has been quite forgotten at the back of my dresser this summer, poor thing.

Just hit pan on MAC Naked Lunch. That is my second pan, and I already have my backup in the drawer. And when I start using that backup, I’ll buy another. 🙂

Actually, it was my beloved MAC PRO Sculpting Powder in Sculpt. One more item to add to my Back-to-MAC list of products. 🙂 God, it adds up so slowly.

Just to let you know, mac recently changed the b2m rules and pro pans are no longer accepted. Although, your location may still take them because the rules are so arbitrarily applied.

Ooh thanks for bringing that to my attention. And GOSH DANG IT. Half my regular MAC products are from the PRO line. I’ll have to see if my local store will make a one-time exception. But yeah, arbitrary indeed!

I’ve hit pan on lorac spotlight, (sad moment on that one, its probably only going to last another 7 months OH NO) lol.
Tarte Exposed,
nars orgasm, which is suprising because I dont think it that much but apparently I do,
and as far as eyeshadows are concerned ive hit pan on several cream colored powder eyeshadows in different palettes. I use cream colors alot all over my eye everyday it seems.

a mac pressed pigment eye shadow called “love connection”
its super shiny, so i use it for eye and cheek highlight when i’m feeling feisty

My MAC Lightful powder foundation. (An Asia-only product, I believe, though the closest to Studio Fix powder?) It’s nice enough that I think I’ll repurchase, unless some other powder can win me away from it meantime.

The bronzer in my Hourglass Illume Creme-to-Powder Bronzer and Highlight duo in ‘Bronze Light’!
Coincidentally, the product I hit pan and used up before that (although over a year ago) was another bronzer – NARS Laguna. Obviously I am a bronzer fiend! 😀 I did really enjoy the Hourglass bronzer – if used sparingly along the temples, top of cheekbones, bridge of nose, chin and blended into jaw, neck and hairline it gives a very beautiful realistic bronzed flush and the highlight in the duo is a nice natural change up from my more obvious/stark Dior Amber Diamond highlighter. Although I loved this duo a lot for summer, for fall/winter I think I will be switching back to NARS Laguna and using up my Dior Amber Diamond because the Hourglass Bronzer is very orange toned. I know most people are scared of the dreaded ‘oompa loompa effect’, believe me, I was too when I first pulled the duo out of the package! But this one does NOT give me this effect in the summer because I am tan enough for it to look like a beautiful sun-kissed tan. I am a light-medium skin tone (more medium in summer months – around MAC NC30). Although when I go back to my winter pale of around MAC NC25 I feel as though the Hourglass may be too warm toned for my skin. As well, I miss the flexibility a more neutral bronzer such as NARS Laguna can have in being used as a contouring powder as well as bronzer, because I LOVE contouring! So although I really enjoyed the Hourglass, I think my repurchase may be put off until my next holiday vacation, summer or unexpected payday :p

Update: Just finished off the last of my full size Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer. Scooped out the very last inch of product from that bottle! I have already repurchased and started using a new bottle. I use this primer everyday! Definitely HG material!

Urban Decay eyeshadow in Sin from the Naked palette. Probably my favorite eyeshadow ever. I’ve also wiped out a few tubes of concealer recently, but that’s pretty typical. 😛

Nars Orgasm blush (already repurchased), MAC studio fix powder NC20, MAC Stars N Rockets, And my pro longwear concealer is also at its last drops.

I haven’t hit pan on anything recently, but have been making my way through hair and skincare samples/travel sizes for a while. I’ve gotten through about 5 of 15, but even that feels really good!!
