✭✭Weekly Product & Palette Rotation✭✭Weeks 34 & 35✭✭

✭✭✭So, I am changing things again, LOL. I am going back to a Bi-Weekly Product & Palette Rotation & a Bi-weekly Review, Rate, & Rate schedule. The Bi-Weekly Product & Palette rotation begins next Monday and rotates every other Monday, whereas Review, Rate, and Rotate will post every other Friday. Each series will post on the opposite week of the other. Make sense? Clear as mud? Ok, good! Also, in order to rotate through my palettes in a better and more functional way, I will be choosing one palette from each category I have created in my inventory (Custom, High-End, Small High-End, Large, Luxury, Affordable) every two weeks, and I will select 2 palettes that are new/newer releases that I have not used, 2 palettes that I have not used that may be older, & 2 palettes that I have already rotated through my collection. Additionally, I will be selecting one palette to use all month as a supplemental palette. Also throughout the rest of the year, I am participating in several Panning Projects, and those products will be used throughout the month as supplements. Again, clear as mud? Make no sense? Good, well we are all on the same page!✭✭✭

Many of us pick up some expensive products during the Sephora sale and that’s understandable because it’s the best time to pick up expensive products. But I want to actually use them up so that I get my money’s worth. Choose the most expensive products from 5 - 10 categories and pan them

·         Armani Luminous Silk Foundation (More than halfway empty)
·         Hourglass Ambient Palette(One Entire Shade Panned)
·         2 Pans From Natasha Denona Star Palette (Signs of Significant Use)
·         2 Pans From Natasha Denona Palette 5 #9 (Signs of Significant Use)

Goal was to completely pan one shade - Goal Accomplished!
