Planning 18 in '18! What Am I Going to Pan!?

This upcoming year I am making an attempt at a very lofty panning project. As many of you know, my makeup collection is quite large and somewhat ridiculous. Not only do I have an overload of products, but I also have multiple back up products of eyeshadows, setting sprays, face powders, blushes, highlighters and skin-care items. I have many items that have been sitting for months and haven't even been touched or swatched. I do declutter about every 6 weeks, but I do not feel an overwhelming need to get rid of my collection. I don't feel like it's anyone's concern how or why or if I use my products. My products, my money, my process. I can spend my money however I want to and I can do what I want with my products. Every week, for the last 25 weeks, I have been working my way through my products by doing a palette, highlighter, and blush rotation. Every product is tagged with a month and year of purchase and I have word documents that detail if a product has been used, how many weeks it has been used, the grams/ounces of each product, and other important details. As I make my way through my collection, I am constantly evaluating if I should keep each product or how I can get better use. I have given MANY products to charitable organizations, in particular, The Mission of Yahweh here in Houston Texas. I give products to family and friend and anything that I currently have is in my collection for a reason. I am not a person who is concern about other's judgment of me. So, anyone who has anything to say about my massive collection can reserve their comments for someone who cares :)

Anyhow...I have selected a number of products to work on panning or continually using in 2018. Everyone has a different way of doing panning projects and I have never been one to follow protocol so below I have listed both entire products (eyeshadow palettes) & individual pans  (which started Monday, October 9, 2017) that will be a part of my panning project for 2018. Yes, I know, I am getting a head start and I don't think there is anything wrong with that. I have a lot of products, so the early I start, the more progress I can make and the faster I will be able to begin panning other items. So, that's the plan...and I hope to have an update every month around the 10th.
