PROJECT 10 PAN

Have you been buying way too many beauty products lately? Is your vanity overflowing with way too much clutter? If you haven't heard of the Project 10 Pan (which I believe started on Youtube, that's where I heard about it!), let me briefly describe what it is. You select 10 (or however many you'd like) products, whether it's makeup, skincare, hair products or all. You must finish these 10 products in its entirely (or "hit pan", where you have used so much of the product that you see the bottom of the "pan") before you are allowed to buy new makeup products. This really helps with appreciating what you have rather than buying more and more things, leaving older products you have to sit in the dust! *There are also exceptions, for example, if you run out of concealer... you can allow yourself to purchase another concealer even if you haven't completed the Project 10 Pan.

 

Is anyone else doing a Project 10 Pan?! I definitely needed to control myself after IMATS LA and tons of Sephora gift cards for my birthday and the recent UD sale! So, I started up my Project 10 Pan again two weeks ago! I'm determined not to be good and stick with it!

 

Here are my items that I've chosen for my Project 10 Pan:

 

1. Sephora Mineral Foundation Powder in Medium 25 - I've had this since March and I'm barely half way!! I use this daily.

2. Sephora Lip Gloss in Pink Ballerina - about half way through.

3. Clinique Lip Gloss in Bamboo Pink - about half way through.

4. NYX Lip Gloss in Beige - still have more than 3/4 of the product left!

5. Stila Liquid Eye Liner in Black - I'll finish this in about a month or so.

6. BADgal Lash - I have about half a month left til I need to throw it out.

7. L'oreal Voluminous Mascara - still have about 2 months til I need to throw it out.

8. Maybelline One by One Mascara - will be throwing this out in a couple weeks.

9. UD Primer Potion - I have two small samples, but I really don't know how long they will last!

10. ELF Blush in Tickled Pink - I haven't even hit pan with this!

and any of my UD eye shadows in my Naked palette, which I haven't even hit pan with!

 

This will definitely take a long time to complete, but I'm okay with that because I really need to save my money and just enjoy what I have! :smileyhappy:

 

Let me know what your list looks like! :smileyhappy:

How is the C.O Bigelow My Favorite Night Balm ?

@ Eelias I really like it. I'm very picky with my lipbalms, and I find this hydrates very well. (It's actually a good value too it's about 8$ I bought it when Bath & Body had BOGO Free). It does more for my lips then the Percone Super does.

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

wow brandi you're doing great. I am sick of the mess the smashbox dna mascara is making a mess on my face. I might just toss it.

brandiandi

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

@Mish-Yeah, I really hated the Blinc mascara and just ended up tossing it when I couldn't take it anymore. I have really been grinding away at these products using them every single day if I can! Especially the lip products...I find myself putting on lip gloss when I normally wouldn't. haha

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

Ok, it has been exactly one month since I started project 10 pan, so I figured I would update.

 

1. Formula 10.0.6 Deep Down Detox Ultra-Cleansing Mud Mask(1/8 full Maybe 2-3 uses left)

2. Physician's Formula Tinted Moisturizer(Maybe 1/4 left)--Backup Clinique Super Balanced(Not sure how much of this is left, but it is starting to feel pretty empty)

3. C.O. Bigelow lip gloss, Clinique vitamin smoothie, Burt's Bees Acai chapstick, Chapstick brand(all almost finished-less than 1/4 left), and labella fruity shine (full)(Only have the lip gloss, lip smoothie, an labello fruity shine. Just about done with the lip gloss, really have to push it to get it out, the lip smoothie I have no idea because it is a clicker, and the labello will be about

another week)

4. Sonia Kashuk super sheer liquid tint

5. Covergirl all in one professional mascara (2 months left)--backup Tarte Lights, Camera, Splashes (The sample is pretty

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

My project is coming right along. As others have noted, I am using up other items that I didn' t put on my list, but have made a concentrated effort to use up.

 

I threw out the last of some Maybelline Eye Makeup remover that seems to be all oil and no liquid (it's one of those bi-phase kinds) and not working properly. (Have a wonderful bottle of MAC Pro eye makeup remover to take it's place, Yay!)

 

Here's how my list is coming along:

 

 

 

1) MAC lipstick in Wuss. This is my all-time favorite nude lip color that they don't make anymore, but since it's down to 1/3 I have a chance at using it up. Plus I get the container for Back to MAC, yay, free makeup! Still working on this one

 

2) Benefit They're Real Mascara- The deluxe sample one from Sephora, tested once and found to be ok, just not my favorite. Found it (it was lost on my desk, got inspired and cleaned off desk and Voila!) and am working on it, it's probably 1/2 gone.

 

3) Too Faced Pink Leopard Blush- about 1/4 left now, was 1/2 when I started 5 pan. Pan is definitely showing, though I will keep at it til it's gone.

 

 

4) MAC tinted lip conditioner SPF 15 in some rose shade, the label fell off, 1/2. Very little left, when it hits the tube, I'll dig out the rest and put in a lip mix MAC tray.

 

5)Stila waterproof glitter eyeliner in Flash- can't tell how much is in here, but it's relatively new. 

 

6) Kinerase Deep Wrinkle Control can't tell how much is in there, but it feels like more than 1/2.

 

7) MAC shadow in Little Minx

 

8) Sephora Lash Booster-Done and tossed.

 

9) Shu Uemura Lash Primer Done and tossed

 

10) Pixi Illuminated Tint and Conceal  Done and tossed

 

Yay!!

Haha, it figures that right after I visited Origins yesterday, I used up the last of my Caudalie Premier Cru Eye Cream!  So here's a revised list:

 

1.  Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 in Bare Radiance

2.  Clinique All About Eyes Rich (maybe a 1/3 left; since this is now the only eye cream I'm using right now, should be gone before long)

3.  Clinique Rinse Off Foaming Cleanser (about 1/4 left, getting close!)

4.  Nars Orgasm/Laguna Blush/Bronzer Duo

5.  Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder (not much left, I can see there's only a little.  No longer bottomless!)

6.  Chanel Eclat Lumiere (taking more clicks to get product now)

7.  UD Eyeshadow Potion Primer in Eden

8.  UD Afterglow Cheek Tint in Fetish

9.  Clinique Fresh Bloom Allover Color in Peony

10. Caudalie Premier Cru Eye Cream  (all gone!)

 

So now I need a new one.  Maybe Modern Friction scrub from Origins?  I still have half of the jar left and that's the only scrub I'm using on my face lately.  (Plus I'm fairly sure I have a bigger size underneath the sink too.)

 

....I do have a confession to make though.  I put myself on no-buy for October and ended up having to break it because my face decided to freak out and do reactive redness again due to the seasons changing.  So I had to buy the Origins Plantidote Serum that was in a $68 gift set with smaller sizes of the matching cleanser, mask and full size face cream.  And since I was there and out of my Clinique Sparkle Skin Body Scrub, I got that too and the Step 2 Clarifying Lotion (which I'm almost out of).

 

So my skin decided to freak and make me break my no-buy!

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

@waterbaby-  The best laid plans.....

 

Oh well, you didn't just go nuts and buy stuff you were lusting after but didn't need, so I think we can all give you a pass!

waterbaby: That Origins Dr. Weil Mega Mushroom kit that you just bought is what I want to get for myself for the holidays! I LOVE the Origins holiday giftsets, they are all fantastic. I've sampled the face cream and its great. You absolutely get a pass! :smileyvery-happy:

 

 

waterbaby1981

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

@sephoramusthave:  24-48 hours of using the Mega Mushroom stuff and my face is calm.  Thank GOD!  And yes, it's a full size face cream.  Of course, my scalp has gone crazy too, now that it's colder in the PNW, so when it's not staticky, it's flaking.  Just finally got my hair cut last night though, so much more manageable now.  Plus less drying time!

 

I just used up the last of my Chanel Eclat Lumiere, so that's off my list.  Time to use the Laura Mercier Secret Brightener pen I have in my makeup case!  (I think there's about half left.)

Oh wow thats amazing. I've always loved Origins! ( minus their horrible organic face lotion though >_<)

 

I'm almost out of my last compact of Benefit Some Kinda Gorgeous Foundation ( I think I can get 2 more uses out of it) and I'm kinda bummed about it. I love it and it goes perfectly over my natural moisturizing sunblocks but its sooo pricey for the amount you get. If I put on the thinnest layer posible, just enough to cover up sunscreen and even out skintone I run out of it in 3 weeks or less. 

 

I love pressed powder foundations as well, and have a brand new Lancome Dual Finish lying around, but it looks best with a matte sunscreen like Neutrogena Pure and Free Liquid Daily Sunblock, which I dont have anymore. My skin is dry and sensitive right now so I NEED the moisturizing sunscreen in the AM.

 

Curses!

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

@sephoramusthave i think that means it's time to go shopping...! that's surprising that Some Kinda Gorgeous runs out so quickly! is that the travel size or the full size (or am i confusing it with something else?) 

 

i'm getting closer to finishing my small bottle of purity... so that's good. don't think i've gotten anywhere with anything else though

sephoramusthave

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

Its the full size! I've gone through at least 14 of these compacts in full size...love it but they need more product! 

 

I'll just use my Lancome Dual Finish ( LOVE) when I'm out, I just have to let the sunblock absorb for awhile before I buff it in. Now this foundation...comes with a LOT of product and it doesnt cost much more than my SKG. Well, its a lot compared with everyone else's powders...for this price, most compacts give you .25 oz of powder but this gives you .67 oz!

 

I also have an Almay Loose powder...I bought it over the summer to cover up sunscreen on vacation because I didnt want to use my expensive makeup so I have to use that up as well. 

 

Because I have 2 other foundations, I dont see the need to get one right now. Plus I really want to keep saving for Christmas.

after my crazy 'window-shopping' spree for the F&F sale... i read my previous post on this thread and realized i really shouldnt buy more makeup because of my 10 pan list :'( no matter how GOOD it looks! ahhhh!

 

im finishing up products that aren't even in my 10 pan list!!! but theyre mostly skin care / body care items so it really doesnt even count for me! hmph! ive finished a tiny bottle of Purity (actually, ive finished 3 since July) and a small Lush Tea Tree Water toner. I'm almost done w/ my philosphy On A Clear Day Retinol Clarifying Lotion, Lush Vanishing Cream moisturizer and Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Body Scrub.

 

1. Sephora Mineral Foundation Powder in Medium 25- ill hopefully finish this bad boy in about a month!

2. Sephora Lip Gloss in Pink Ballerina - about half way through. i found it! 3/4 finished =)

3. Clinique Lip Gloss in Bamboo Pink - thought i was halfway but i still have 3/4 to go...

4. NYX Lip Gloss in Beige - still fairly new...

5. Stila Liquid Eye Liner in Black - thought this was guna die on me a couple weeks ago, but its still goin strong!

6. BADgal Lash - finished.

7. L'oreal Voluminous Mascara - forgot how long ive had this... ill toss it out in a month or two?

8. Maybelline One by One Mascara - finished.

9. UD Primer Potion - I have two small samples,can't tell how much is left?!

10. ELF Blush in Tickled Pink - FINALLY HIT PAN!!!! =) still have 3/4 left.

and any of my UD eye shadows in my Naked palette - haven't even hit pan! (umm, not even considering this one anymore)

...

11. Estee Lauder Stay In Place Concealer - i bought this in like March, so ive had it for about 7 months? it hasnt gotten nasty or anything, so im totally still going to use it.

12. Stila Sun Bronzer Powder - TOTALLY HIT PAN! but still have less than 3/4 to go.

13. Buxom Lash - started using this about a month ago, will toss in 2 months or when it dries up, whichever comes first.

 

i added those three because some (most?) of my products are fairly new. realistically speaking, i will most likely finish 8 by december.

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

LUSH!!!  That reminds me to take some baths with those bath bombs I have upstairs!  My husband's gonna hate me.

 

...because the bathroom's going to smell all girly and if I use the sex bomb bath bomb, there's going to be a pink ring around the tub that he'll get to clean.  (We split the bathroom chores.  I wipe down the counters, steam mop the floors and clean the toilets, he gets the bathtubs.  We have two full baths upstairs and a half bath downstairs.)  The reason I get more chores?  I'm a stay at home wife until I get a new job and he's studying for his ASA and MAAA while working 40+ hours a week for the state.

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

i love bath bombs!! i like the avobomb and the sex bomb one =)

 

good job completing items everyone! I'm still nowhere with mine. grr. but i guess it would help if i even put on makeup at all huh

waterbaby1981

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

I can see the bottom of the jar in the Clinique All About Eyes Rich!  I'm getting there!  Unfortunately, the Laura Mercier Secret Brightener pen....I must've gotten a bad one.  It comes out all clumpy when it does and doesn't look good under my eyes.  It makes it look worse and all sparkly!  So that's going in the trash (I've also had it sitting around for quite some time, so that might have done it too). Looks like I'll have get either use my concealer or get another Eclat Lumiere (that stuff is SERIOUSLY HG after my LM concealer!)

 

I just even finished my bottle of the Ed Hardy perfume too!
