Mine is pale barley lol from all the shadows I own it’s the only one I use everyday. Thank goodness I bought a new one last week from nordstrom after stalking the website. They must of sold like hot cakes because it’s not there anymore

Nars Reflecting Light Powder… It’s great stuff, took me about 3 months to hit pan on it and thinking about repurchasing another.

I keep hearing amazing things about the Burberry Trench eyeshadow. It is an awful lot to splurge out. Is it worth it? Are there any good dupes?

I always go back to the Everyday Minerals semi matte foundation powder to set my BB cream. Such a beautiful finish. Oh and the Colour Tattoo in grey.

theBalm’s Matt Smith from the Meet Matt(e) palette. Pretty much any beige shade is done for in my collection. :3

A Bobbi Brown corrector and a MAC Lightful pressed powder! They aren’t all gone yet, but I’ll have to repurchase the powder or try out something else soon…

This incredibly cheap eyebrow powder duo from h&m. I’ve had that bad boy for, I’m not shitting you, seven years! And I’ll get at least two more years out of what’s left. I think i paid 3 bucks for it. Win!

I’ve basically hit pan on two items. First is my Milani cream to powder foundation in Caramel Brown and next is my MAC’s Ruby Woo lipstick. This lipstick lasted me about two years. Can’t wait to get rid of it. Hated it so bad. Will not repurchase.

MAC Desert Rose blush. I hit pan on it years ago but it’s still going strong. I’d like to finish it but I keep it in my purse which means I rarely use it in the mornings, when I apply makeup, so it hardly ever gets used. If I’d remember to take my purse makeup bag upstairs with me when I get ready, I might actually finish it!

I have so much makeup that I can’t fathom hitting pan on eyeshadows! I never use up eyeliners either at the rate I’m going. The only thing I’ve hit pan on in the last 2 years is my L’Oreal True Match powder compact for setting my foundation. I’ve contemplated chopping my eyeliners in half and sharpening the end of it to give to my sister so she can help me use them.

Urban Decay Virgin in my Naked Palette. Which kinda sucks ’cause it means I”ll have to get a separate highlighter to carry along with it when I travel.

Try the Wet N Wild Color Eye shadow single in “Creme Brulee” it’s AMAZING! So buttery smooth and really really pigmented. I payed $1.50 for it!

MACs Swiss Chocolate eyeshadow (fave crease color) and Arena eyeshadow (fave brow highlight color). I am running out of my Bare Minerals Matte foundation, for which I’ve already picked up another during the VIB sale. I am also down to the last bit of MACs Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Impressive (my fave pinky nude). I love the formula, creamy but the color payoff is great! Plus you don’t need a gloss πŸ™‚

Mac Blanc Type, my go to everyday highlight! Only a tiny bit left on the edges, but another one is waiting in the wings!

I’ve only ever hit pan on the Laura Mercier setting powder (and that is because my sister and I both use it – we live together). I would LOOOOOVE to hit pan on an eyeshadow. I think I might be getting close with my R&R eyeshadow in Skintight!… Although that makes me sad too since R&R discontinued their beauty line so I can’t get it any more.

Nars light reflecting pressed powder. The pan is a grid, loaded with glue. There’s product left in there, but it’s nearly impossible to pick it up with a large brush. I’m using the last bits for setting my undereye, and smaller areas.

My Chanel Poudre Universelle Compact goes pretty quickly since I use it multiple times a day, but I recently killed my Chanel Irreelle Duo in Sunset-Gold only to find out they don’t make it anymore!

i don’t understand how people finish stuff. i have “finished” a couple of lipsticks, 1 is mac vgv and 1 sheer read lipstick by lancome but i still have some scooped out into a palette (the small amount left that you are unable to apply directly from a tube).

never finished an eyeshadow or anything else. i bought a makeupforever hd foundation, and it’s still going. i bought it in march 2011. yes i know it’s been a long time, but it’s not gone bad.

just hit pan on Benefit dallas. i’m obsessed with it lately, and can’t get myself to use a different blush. the only product i have ever used completely is my sephora microsmooth baked powder foundation. I need a new one every 3 or 4 months, but i use it every single day, sometimes multiple times in one day.

I’ve only ever hit pan on two things – Rimmel Stay Matte Powder and No. 7 blusher in Soft Damson. I have loads of eyeshadows I like to use so I’ve barely made a dent even in my favourites. I only use one or two blushes at a time though which is a bit limiting, maybe I should branch out.

MAC’s Dollymix blush. I was rather excited, since I’ve rarely hit pan on anything, and the last time I did was long ago!

Nars Penny Lane! I’ve never hit pan on a blush so quickly, but it’s a gorgeous cream blush, I will definitely repurchase!

I only hit pan on Bobbi Brown Presser Finish Powder and her concealer. Never hit pan on eyeshadow, that mean i should stop buying more eyeshadow.

After I posted this morning, I realized I’ve hit pan on 2 pressed mineral powder foundations – Pur Minerals and Too Faced Amazing Face (or whatever it’s called) and, depending on how much I use them in the next few weeks, both should be finished by the New Year (or pretty close to that).

i think the only thing i have ever hit pan on was guerlain’s lingerie de peau compact foundation. it was fabulous. the color match was off so i didn’t repurchase, but it was still beautiful on…especially if i wore a scarf around my neck:)

Anastasia Hyper Color – the violet one! Not because I used it so much because it all fell out during on application! All the colors go on different. That one falls out everywhere. The pink is great though.

An e.l.f. blush. At first I thought it was too sheer, but I grew to really appreciate how buildable it is! The color is a perfect natural coral. No color name mentioned on the blush itself πŸ™ I love how the packaging looks and feels like a NARS blush.

I was going to answer “I’ve never hit pan on anything”, since I’m relatively new to makeup and I’ve bought way too many things in the past year, but I realised there is something I hit pan on – and it is the yellow powder in the Sleek corrector and concealer (and yellow powder) palette. I didn’t like the corrector and concealer because they were too light (in colour) and too thick (in consistency) for under my eyes, but that light yellow powder was so perfect for setting my under-eye concealer or just in place of concealer. I would love to buy a big compact of that on its own.

MAC Satin Taupe e/s. It’s been a while since I hit pan on something. I’m trying to use up the products I hit pan on last year. It takes so long!

Ugh seriously. Even when you make a conscious effort to use products you hit pan on, I still feel like it takes lightyears to actually finish them!

I’ve hit crazy pan with NARS Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder. It seems like I hit pan really quick with this powder. I love it, but I’m thinking I may try the loose next. Some bloggers seemed to prefer the loose over the pressed, so maybe I’ll love it even more!

Funny you asked now because I hit pan with Bobbie Brown’s Blushed blush, it was so old that it was still in the round container. Luckily they still make the color and I bought a back-up about a month ago. Great all-purpose color, glad they still make it.

I have never hit pan on a powder product ever. the last product I finished will probably have been a mascara, en eye primer or a concealer: all Nars.

You mention Trench so often that it makes me want to get it just to see what the fuss is all about!

I’m proud to say I just hit pan on Urban Decay’s Virgin (in my Naked palette) this morning. What IS it about hitting pan that just feels so darn satisfying?!

I mean, it’s super boring, but it just works as the perfect brow highlighter for me πŸ™‚ It’s also great for softening anything that’s too shimmery!

Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder.

The only things I go trough are pressed powders and mascaras… and maybe one foundation and a lipstick/lipgloss per year.

Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer in Medium and two Buxom glosses one sheer red, one nude pink, and 3 Eyeko eyeliners brown, black and blue
