Project pan: 2012 resolution...

Recently whilst going through my collection of makeup I noticed many products which I hadn't used in a while, so I decided to do the project pan which  is quite popular with the youtube beauty community. These are the products I chose:
-Revlon photoready foundation (I like it but I have SO many other foundations too).
-MAC blush Dollymix (I stopped using it for a while and it is quite expensive so I need to start using it more often, even though it is a very bright blush)
- L'Oreal primer (I don't like it but it needs to be used up)
-MAC fix + (I like this product but have forgotten about it for a while, I need to start using it up again).
MAC studio sculpt concealer (LOVE this concealer but I know that I will end up buying another one when I don't need it so I am going to try & use it all up before buying another).
- Rimmel stay matte powder (purchased this before being given the MAC MSF natural and now have forgotten about it, I am going to try and use it up even though I have already hit pan).

-Rimmel day to night mascara (Love this mascara, but I usually end up buying another before I need one so I am going to try and get my moneys worth of this product).
-GOSH pencil eyeliner (I don't usually like pencil eyeliner so I need to use this up as otherwise it will be a waste).
-Benefit cream shadow RSVP (I like this product but I have forgotten about it and it was quite expensive so I need to start using it up). 

-L'Oreal HIP jelly balm (I recently got a new one of these and love them, but I haven't used this shade for a while now and want to start using it again).
- Palmers lipbalm ( Got this recently but I buy lipbalms on a regular basis and end up not using them, but I want this one to be used daily).
-MUA lipstick shade 12 (I like the formula of these but I haven't used it in a while and it is a really pretty colour so it shouldn't be too hard to use up).
-17 lipstick Beehive (Love this lipstick and formula but once again have started to forget about it, I will definitley carry on using this product as it is so moisturizing and pretty).
So these are the products I have chosen I will be doing regular updates on products that I have hit pan on and am loving/ hating, so please comment telling me if you have done this project yet and how it went!

My December favorites

Bourjois healthy mix foundation - At first I didn't get on with this foundation and hated the look of it on my face but after working with it I find the less you use the better the outcome. I have come to love this foundation and for £9.99 its a bargain!
Collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer- I have loved this concealer since the first time using this, it's my second one of this concealer and I am definitley going to repurchase it again!
Benefit primpcess eye primping set- I purchased this on a flight for a low price of £15 but it is usually sold for £29, I love this product the packaging is so cute and is so easy to travel with.
It includes: 
- sample of eyebright
- sample of boi-ing concealer in 2 (too dark for me)
- 3 eyeshadows which are really nice eyeshadows I have been using them all month!
- small version of bad gal mascara (which I found way too clumpy)
- sample of RSVP cream shadow base (love it and purchased the full version)

Overall I like this product mainly for the  eyebright, RSVP cream shadow and the eyeshadows!
I highly recommend this palette just for the eyeshadows and I have decided I will purchase the too faced natural eye palette as they have very similar colours in it and is selling for a bargain price at £23.
Loreal blush in Rosewood-
I love this blush even though it is made for medium skin tones I tried my mums and loved it so purchased my own for £7  I only recently started using it after having a major clear out in my makeup collection and have fallen in love with the colour, on the skin it looks like a very natural red/ coral dewy blush.
 Lip product:
Palmers lip butter lip balm- 
I heard another youtuber talk about this: Sunbeamsjess (who is one of my favorite youtubers)  and decided to buy one myself for a cheap price of £1.93 at boots, it smells just like cocoa butter/ chocolate and isn't waxy like some other lip balms, it's really moisturizing and has gotten rid of those winter chapped lips! Would definitely recommend it...

Skincare product:
Simple spotless skin moisturizer-
I have used 2 bottles of this and it is a product I can definitely rely on, I have acne prone skin, and although my acne isn't too bad it is only because this moisturizer helps it stop from getting bad, It helps moisturize my skin but doesn't leave it looking greasy and shiny. I wouldn't recommend it for people with dry skin as it isn't hugely moisturizing but it does help oil skin by reducing oil around the T-zone and stops from it clogging your pores (haha nasty...)
