Well, I've now hit pan on #31, the SN Dark Auburn brow cream. It's a fantastic colour for me with the red hair so I'm not actually happy about hitting pan; but it means it's over time to put in a new Silk Naturals order. The fluidline Blacktrack #28 is done (I never had trouble with it drying out) and I'm surprised to be really liking the brown 30. Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner, Sepia Ink. I use the black too. 6. Alverde Naturkosmetik 07 Flamingo puderrouge is also done. My home-blended Alima Pure/Silk Naturals Foundation Powder is such a great colour this time I hope I can do as well next time! 27. a) is now Silk Naturals Exposed, a fab soft crease colour for me. 39 Lancome Hypnose Drama, Black is almost done. I'm dragging it out as isn't it something to actually finish a mascara?
It's great fun watching this, but not being in the US, it isn't very practical to join. I am so gratified having the generous gifts from the last secret Santa I was in here. So many fabulous things to use and try. I've been using the blush I got for over a year and loving it: Alverde puderrouge Flamingo which I would have never thought to hunt down and try myself; Tarte cream (pencil) contour that was super convenient to apply. The box has similar benefits for finding neat new favourites. I hope you get an interested group at some point this year!
I realize I haven't commented here and I have some products I love for this. I use Dermablend Cover Creme in two shades as part of my strategy (just a touch with a finger). "Smoke and mirrors" indeed!
I use the lighter shade at the under-eye; the darker one covers redness elsewhere. Then I apply powder foundation to set. Silk Naturals Sleep in a Jar under eye concealer (powder) in Light Peach works wonders for setting and illuminating the area without settling too much in the skin.
Welcome! a bit late. I'm the same in that I haven't gotten up the determination to do a open up a blog and share a whole bunch more at this point, though I have lots of ideas and post fails and successes here and there, occasionally. It might be fun, but it also takes time and energy. Are you a happy makeup fan or a passionate collector with so many options that they can't all get finished? What is your passion(s) if the second? I have to admit nail polish and indie eye shadows are two of mine. It is a hobby for me, so I'm not desperately worried about it, but there is the no buy section I like to keep myself thinking about what I love vs need, and how to enjoy my makeup to the fullest. Sometimes it's good to find out that only with dedicated full work-week use can you hit pan on (but not finish) 10 shadows in a year. The Pan that Palette 2016 was great; we're just getting started this year. Without it, I realize I barely use eye shadow, so I want to do it again this year and having 8 months is OK. With over ten blushes, it's also handy to know it takes a full year to use one when I'm considering other beautiful blushes that just came out from 'x' brand and have an exciting bonus set with purchase..
I like to find out about new brands and what's worth trying. I was so thrilled with the beauty of things I've received from oh-so-generous prizes and swaps. I'd also like some company with a little casual nail challenge.

I have a few more things to add. I'm close to finishing one blush, here from March 2016:
Here's the state of my MAC Blacktrack Fluidline eyeliner pot. I started this in January 2016.
early May 2016: to early May 2017:
I'll likely finish it this month. My next will be the Bobbi Brown equivalent. I have a brown and a black, but the brown is quite bland on me, so the black will get the most use.
Hi! This topic was good for us in 2016, here it is for 2017. Post your goals for using makeup, pictures of what you plan to use this year, and how much you have used! It's like a (planned or unplanned) Project Pan for things other than your Pan That Palette eye shadow palette (eye shadow tracking here is also fair game).
