I hit pan on Mac Careblend pressed powder.. more natural and better finish than Chanel Les beiges!, mac hush cream color base the most natural highlighter and my mac cream blend blush in something special.. not a favorite just trying to use it up

It’s not literally hitting “pan,” but the Bare Minerals matte foundation on the loose powder form. So, technically I hit the bottom of the plastic container because I did take the sifter out in the end to completely finish the product πŸ™‚

Nars albatross, Mac rubenesque paint lot, and Mac msfn in light πŸ™‚ and my Mac angel lipstick is running very very LOW thankfully though πŸ˜‰

OMG how long did it take for you to hit pan on a paint pot? I’ve had mine (Soft Ocher) FOREVERRRRRRRR and while I love it, I really want to see the gosh darn pan! I use mine every single weekday and have had it for over two years, but I STILL DON’T SEE the pan. 4 years? 5 years? Will I be driving a hovercraft by the time I see the pan of a paint pot?

Haha I know how you feel. I used up a paint pot last year (Painterly) and it took 2-2. years of daily use to hit pan. Once you do hit pan you will run out faster than other products where the pan is wider but shallower. I hope you get there soon! I’ve since repurchased it so I know I won’t be seeing the pan for a while…

I hit pan on Chanel’s single eyeshadow in Island and duo in Brun Express. Both are discontinued. I am SOOOO sad. πŸ™

I hit pan on my MAC Skinfinish Natural a little while ago. I thought I had a backup at my mums house but I don’t and I can’t get to a MAC shop till next week. I’ve been trying to get every little bit of powder left out of the pan but I think it’s time to give up and admit it’s gone πŸ™

I never hit pan on anything, it’s that bad. I have been noticing a trend that my Baked e/s in both Naked pallettes are getting there, as well as the Gold shade in my Lorac Pro. Hmmmmm…..

MAC Prolongwear Bronzer in Nude on Board, from the Hey, Sailor! collection.
I have a back up from the Temperature Rising collection, thanks to my lovely fiancΓ©.

I hit pan on Bobbi Browns Sheer Pressed Powder. But I think it will last another 2 month before I completely finish the product. I’m not sure, whether I buy it again or try a Laura Mercier powder next.

Too Faced Amazing Faced powder foundation. Trying to finish it up just to make more room in the container where I store pressed powder compacts! I haven’t hit pan on an eye shadow in decades….which really drives home the fact that I own way too much eye shadow!

Me too, though sometimes I also use Colorescience pressed base or gloMinerals pressed base, and Southern Magnolia Minerals loose powder base. Have hit pan multiple times on them all. The one I used up most recently is the Jane Iredale PowderMe Sunscreen.

I rarely hit pan on anything else because I have waaaay tooo much of everything…

I hit pan on my mac brun eyeshadow that I use for my brows. It hasn’t even been that long either that I’ve had it! Have and will definitely repurchase!
