2018 Misses, Pans & Empties

Just like last year, I decided to put together all items I’ve hit pan on, emptied and the ones that didn’t work for me. Let’s get into those shall we?


With a low-buy year, I thought I wouldn’t have products I’d be disappointed in but then I take a look at the photo above and realize 3 out of the 5 items were PR products. I’ve only reviewed 2 — the Maybelline Superstay Full Coverage Foundation and the Eyenlip Pure White Tone-Up Cream. You can click on the links to know why they didn’t work for me. All the lip products included in the photo were only used once: Jane Iredale Triple Luxe Long Lasting Naturally Moist Lipstick in Joanna, Lip Pencil in Nude, and Blk Cosmetics Long-Lasting Liquid Matte Lipstick. I was so disappointed in them that I think they’re not worth a second chance. If you want me to post a review, let me know in the comments.


This is the category I’m most disappointed about because I only panned one product and again, it’s a pressed powder, the Wet N Wild Photo Focus Pressed Powder. I’ve got to work harder at panning my compacts and palettes. I need to pan some blushes, bronzers, highlighters and at least one palette this year.


I am glad though that I have quite a bit of accomplishment for my empties. I’m most proud of myself for these. Compared with last 2017, when I’ve only finished 5 items, I managed to have a bigger number of empties for 2018 — more than 30! Also, I don’t think these are all I’ve emptied. I know I have some mascaras I already threw out and 2 bottles of Vitamin C serums I wasn’t able to include. However, I’m only going mention here the items I’m sure I will repurchase because not everything became my favorite. That said, here are the products I’m sure to buy again:

There you have it guys. Have you got any questions for me with any of these?
