Products I Have Hit Pan On!

It's no lie that I am makeup obsessed but to find a product I have hit pan on is very rare. I am constantly buying and switching my everyday makeup, so I never really come close to finishing a product, mainly powders. Saying that, there are four products I have hit pan on and so I wanted to celebrate each product in a post.

The first product I am going to mention is the only (yes only!) eye shadow I have ever hit pan on. That is the shade Nougat out of the Sleek Au Natural Eye Shadow Palette. I remember this being one of the very first makeup products I ever bought, there was something that made me cave in. When I had this, I was no expert on eye shadow, but I loved to set my cream shadows in place with the matte white shade, and now I cannot wear eye makeup without a matte white eye shadow, don't ask me why, it is just one of my makeup laws and it all began with Nougat. A matte white shadow can be used for anything, highlight, setting creams, lid shade, anything. As you can see, I have hit pan quite a lot on this but I probably won't need to repurchase this just for the shade, since most of my eye shadow palettes have a matte white shade in them.

Next up is a bronzer that I don't think I have mentioned much on my blog actually, bit weird. Again this was one of my very first makeup products and it is the Collection Bronze Glow Matte Bronzer. Before I had my blog, I used this all the time, not because I knew how to but just because the product fascinated me. To be honest, I don't really know how I hit pan on it because it is crazy pigmented and you don't need a lot, but I guess uneducated Grace, just swirled a massive brush in the whole pan until the brush looked like an Umpa Lumpa. I would wear this on my eyes and cheekbones all of the time, I don't reach for it like I use to but it is quite a sentimental product.

Next up will be no surprise to you, it is my beloved Seventeen Define and Conquer Contour Kit. I am not going to babble on for too long because you already know how much I love it. As you can see from the photo, I have hit pan greatly on the matte highlight shade. I use this everyday I wear makeup to set my under eyes, on it's own or mixed in with another, going back to the matte white eye shadow situation, this highlight shade works really well for that too. I have only had this since January this year, and I have used it almost everyday since so I guess that shows just how much I love it. I don't really know what I am going to do when all of this is gone, because I have a few other matte white highlighting powders but none of them compare to this, so we will have to cross that bridge when we come to it.

Finally we have a drugstore classic, the Rimmel Stay Matte. Everyone at some point has owned this powder, you might not think this is brilliant but it does the job. I have had this for quite a while but it is lasting me so long. Powder is one of those things, for me, that is super easy to get right, they don't have to be fab but as long as they take care of my oily skin. This powder is great, I wouldn't say I have a favorite powder, but this is my most used one. I would repurchase this if I ran out mainly because it is so affordable and great for a daily basis.

Let me know in the comments products you have hit pan on, I would love to know. I hope you have all had an amazing day as always and are looking forward to another blog post coming on Sunday at 10am.

  1. I love hitting pan on a product because it really shows that you are dedicated to using it! I really want to get my hands on the contour kit! I was surprised at first that you would hit pan on the highlight shade before the contour shade but it makes sense if it's used under the eyes! I love the Rimmel Stay Matte powder, to be honest at the moment I haven't really been bothered to try out anymore to see if any are better so it's like a comfort thing! xx


  2. I love the sleek au natural palette, one of my faves :)
