Oh, that dreaded moment. The twinge of disbelief when you first hit pan on one of your favourite products - or worse, a limited edition product (God forbid!) That metal is beaming back at you, empty lipstick tube mocking you, 'pfff' sound teasing you as you desperately squeeze at an empty tube ('Just one last bit! Pleeease!'). But lets be honest, more often than not we're emptying things we use every day that we can pick up again in the next round of shopping. Lets see what I've 'hit pan' on...
MAC 'What a Dame!' beauty powder. Would you believe that it got to this point about six months after I bought it? I loved it and honestly could have cried when I was left with the remaining dregs around the side! I've found that Shu Uemura 'Peach Glow Medium' blush is a close enough dupe.
MAC 'Nylon' eyeshadow. I used to use this almost daily...until my sister 'borrowed' it. Needless to say, I got it back and I honestly haven't used it that often since! However, it is a particularly striking highlight.
Yaby shell, white, dark brown and black eyeshadows. The shell colour is great to highlight the inner corners of the eyes, the white is super white and super matte, the dark brown is a great eyebrow filler and the black is the deepest I own. Pigmentation is impressive and considering how dinky the pans are, I'm surprised that they have lasted so long!
Topshop cream blush in 'Nutmeg'. Such a lovely colour which really does work with everything! If I'm unsure of which blush to choose I'll always pick 'Nutmeg' because I know it will be perfect :)
Too Faced 'Sweet Cream' eyeshadow. 'Sweet Cream' is one of those highlights you don't need to think about - you know that it will just work, no matter what other eyeshadows you're wearing!
Dark brown MUA eyeshadow. Another fantastic eyebrow filler! And for £1, it's worth checking out.
Urban Decay eyeshadows. These are all from the 'Deluxe' palette, which was one of the first palettes I owned! All of the eyeshadows were used to death, but these three were clearly my faves. 'Honey' is a stunning gold, 'Scratch' is a beautiful salmon-beige and zero is a black with subtle shimmer. All very wearable!
Have you hit pan on anything lately? Are you careful not to use your limited edition items too often in a bid to pro-long them?
