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:

Okay here's what I want to do right now.....I dont want to buy anything *new* unless I run out of something. But I dont want to use the same 10 items everyday either because thats no fun. Now that I have a stack of 8 makeup drawers staring me in the face, it would just torture me to not touch anything and just stick to my little bag of 10 items. So my goal is to use up or hit pan on 10 items before I buy something new, but I dont want to set aside 10 specific products. Any 10 items that I use up from my beauty arsenal can count as my project 10 pan products.

 

Here's my list of recently used up beauty products. (from year 2013 and NO samples)

 

1. TheBalm TimeBalm Concealer, light

2. Sibu Beauty Seabuckthorn Balancing Facial Cleanser

3. Neutrogena Pure and Free Liquid Daily Sunblock

I still still want to update my progress from my last project 10 pan post.

 

1. Dior Gloss Show in Charlotte Moka (no progress here)

10. TheBalm Mary Loumanizer(no progress here)

12. Origins Never a Dull Moment Scrub

13. Burts Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser

14. Weleda Gentle Cleansing Milk

17. TheBalm Shady Lady Eyeshadow in Shameless Shana(new)

20. Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in Purple Snap

22. Clarins Colour Quartet in #50 So Chic

24. TheBalm Cheater! Mascara

26. Benefit Benetint Deluxe Sample (3/4 left)

27. Rosebud Salve

28. Dior Abricot Nail Cream

29. Korres Guava Body Butter

35. Origins Mega Mushroom Skin Relief Serum

38. Josie Maran Argan Mini Color Stick in Petal Pink

 

Yeah for me its easier to post things as I use them up or hit pan on, instead of making a list of products that I want to use up and crossing them off as I go because there's always a ton of stuff that I use up that are not on the list I made.

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

Back again! 

 

1.  Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion (this was already half gone, need to finish it!)

2.  Origins A Perfect World Serum (maybe 3/4 gone, still feels like quite a bit of product left)

3.  Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm working on this still

4.  Nars Orgasm/Laguna Blush/Bronzer Duo

5.  Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30

6.  Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel (half done...I swear it's bottomless too.)

7.  UD Eyeshadow Potion Primer in Eden

8.  UD Afterglow Cheek Tint in Fetish

9. Clinique Fresh Bloom Allover Color in Posy

10. Laura Mercier Radiance Primer

 

LOVED the Ole Henriksen Nurture Me moisturizer.  Will likely buy it again since it worked so well on controlling reactive redness flareups in my cheeks (Clinique's DDML doesn't work as well at controlling that, but moisturizes my dry skin fantastically otherwise).  I also have a half jar of Origins Mega Mushroom Relief Cream to use up, but that controls flareups at least.

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

Great thread, I started this a few weeks ago with some of my products, didn't realise there was a post on this....great motivation to remain accountable. :-)  My biggest challenges are: body lotions and sprays (I leave bottles with just a little bit left, all over the place), mascaras (I have like ten) and eye shadow (I have never hit pan):

 

My ten so far are:

 

  1. Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue Body Cream
  2. Philosophy Pure Grace Body Spray
  3. Stila Eye Shadow (Shore)
  4. Lancome Eye Shadow (Dark Green, forgot name)
  5. Jergens Natural Glow
  6. Fresh Sugar Lip Balm
  7. Exfoliating Foot Cream (Drugstore Brand)
  8. Origins Spot Treatment
  9. Too Faced LashGasm (I have way too many Mascaras)
  10.  Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum

Good luck everyone!

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

Update:

 

 

  1. Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue Body Cream
  2. Philosophy Pure Grace Body Spray
  3. Stila Eye Shadow (Shore)
  4. Lancome Eye Shadow (Dark Green, forgot name)
  5. Jergens Natural Glow
  6. Fresh Sugar Lip Balm
  7. Exfoliating Foot Cream (Drugstore Brand)
  8. Origins Spot Treatment
  9. Too Faced LashGasm (I have way too many Mascaras)
  10. Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum

I generally splurge on skin care rather than make-up, but have been getting more into doing my makeup this past year or so, especially eye makeup.  Used to be a foundation and mascara kind girl.  I am dying to buy myself a really nice eye shadow palette (I've never actually owned one) but am forcing myself to finish the single pots of shadow I have had sitting around for ages. It seems like they will never finish.

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

Wow...I haven't checked up on my list in a LONG time.  However, since I can't do anything except lay around and do absolutely nothing due to my surgery except read, play video games, watch television and play with my extensive makeup and skincare stashes, I may as well go through them right?  So here's my updated list.

 

1.  Chanel VitaLumiere Aqua Foundation maybe enough for 1-2 more applications

2.  Laura Mercier Oil Free Primer (nearly gone)

3.  Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm working on this still

4.  Nars Orgasm/Laguna Blush/Bronzer Duo

5.  Clinique Repairwear Intensive Night Cream GONE. 

6.  Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel (half done...I swear it's bottomless too.)

7.  UD Eyeshadow Potion Primer in Eden

8.  UD Afterglow Cheek Tint in Fetish

9. Clinique Fresh Bloom Allover Color in Posy

10. Origins Mega Mushroom Eye Serum expired, going to have to toss.

 

Technically I have another half tube and a full mini tube of the LM primer, but it's not oil free, so it feels like something's sitting on my face instead of sinking in.  Which sucks.  However, in addition to finishing the others, I just finished Caudalie Cleansing Water and am about to finish the Peter Thomas Roth VIZ-1000.  Just a bit left with the Clinique Clarifying Lotion Step 2 as well.  So I'll add my Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion and my Ole Henriksen Nurture Me face crearm to my list.  Both are half done.  Time to toss out a couple of mascaras too...it's been six months and there are definitely clumpy ones!

elizbeth1972

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

I swear I'm not cheating, lol, each product really only had a little bit left :-)

 

1. Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue Body Cream

2. Philosophy Pure Grace Body Spray

3. Stila Eye Shadow (Shore) - the pan is like 2/3 empty, but i feel like i will never finish

4. Lancome Eye Shadow (Dark Green, forgot name) - there is literally just specks of this, but it is so highly pigmented and you need so little, that it takes forever

5. Jergens Natural Glow

6. Fresh Sugar Lip Balm - almost done, scrapping the bottom

7. Exfoliating Foot Cream (Drugstore Brand)

8. Origins Spot Treatment

9. Too Faced LashGasm (I have way too many Mascaras) - maybe a few days application left

10. Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum

 

How you guys doing? the 15 days of thrills mays it tempting to buy stuff, though i am trying to stick to the essentials that I have run out of (like face wash)

geminibreeze:  I don't see the strikethrough tag anymore (used to be by the B, I, and U part when making a post).  I wonder what happened.  Unless IE 9 just won't let me SEE it.  Sometimes I really hate this internet browser. 

 

Anyway, onto my Project 10 Pan update!

 

1.  Chanel VitaLumiere Aqua Foundation I think this is on it's last legs...not as much comes out when I squeeze as it used to.  Maybe a week or two left? 

2.  Origins A Perfect World Toner done!

3.  Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm working on this still

4.  Nars Orgasm/Laguna Blush/Bronzer Duo

5.  A Perfect World Moisturizer SPF 25 had to toss this out, the oil in it was making my sensitive skin freak

6.  Origins Starting Over moisturizer (using this at night) same as the APW one, making my skin freak, so out it went

7.  UD Eyeshadow Potion Primer in Eden

8.  UD Afterglow Cheek Tint in Fetish

9.  Clinique Fresh Bloom Allover Color in Posy using this a lot lately, but still nowhere near pan.  Not for quite some time.  :smileywink:

10. Origins Modern Friction Facial Scrub (less than 1/4 of the jar left) done!

 

So...that makes four things done.  Need to pick a few more!  So here's what I'll put in for 10 pan now.

 

1.  Laura Mercier Oil Free Primer (1/4 of it left)

2.  Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Gel (this stuff feels SO amazing under your eyes at night.  Really cooling and refreshing)

3.  Clinique Repairwear Intensive Night Cream (this stuff WORKS.  Period.  Lines that were starting to appear on my forehead?  Gone within a week.)

4.  Origins Plantscription Serum

 

waterbaby1981

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

(0) Hearts

1.  Chanel VitaLumiere Aqua Foundation almost there...

2.  Laura Mercier Oil Free Primer

3.  Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm working on this still

4.  Nars Orgasm/Laguna Blush/Bronzer Duo

5.  Clinique Repairwear Intensive Night Cream

6.  Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel

7.  UD Eyeshadow Potion Primer in Eden

8.  UD Afterglow Cheek Tint in Fetish

9.  Clinique Fresh Bloom Allover Color in Posy

10. Origins Plantscription done!

 

Next on my list is going to have to be the Plantidote Eye Serum.  I've got half of it left and have been trying to use it up since I have my holy grail eye cream now.  As soon as the Chanel foundation is done, I'm going to get Origins A Perfect World for Eyes up there too.

 

I don't know if I would use Origins Plantscription again though.  I didn't see any difference with any lines that are starting to appear like I see the difference with the Clinique Repairwear stuff.

waterbaby1981

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

Wow, we haven't checked in on this in a week for most of us!  That needs to change....it keeps us accountable!  Here's my list:

2.  Laura Mercier Oil Free Primer

3.  Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm working on this still

4.  Nars Orgasm/Laguna Blush/Bronzer Duo

10. Origins Mega Mushroom Eye Serum

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

I am trying to go on a Project 10% LOL. I'm going to try and do it according to categories. I counted all my items in categories and then put like 2 of each in my drawer. Too be honest after counting them all I may just end up doing a 25% because it is kind of disgusting how much I have. I feel overwhelmed by all my products. I started like a month ago but broke when I purchased 6 items from The Body Shop and 21 items from Milani's sale this past Monday. Grr..So I made a list in an attempt to better see how big of a collection I have. I also posted it as my screensaver on my phone.This way if I go shopping and see some beauty product I want I can more easily tell myself no...you own this many already:

 

Concealors: 15

Lip Products (lipstick/gloss/balm) : 127

Skincare(wash/moisturizer/mask/toner) 69

Fragrance: 43

Haircare (shampoo/conditioner/serum/mask) 43

Nail Polish (colored only): 133

Brush Cleaner: 5

Eyeliner/Mascara: 64

Eye shadow: 475

Finishing Powders: 11

Foundation: 19

Blush :smileysurprised:: 82

 

See it is insane!!! I will later list which products I'm really really working on at any rate....

To complete my 10% I have to finish

 

Concealors: 2 (I can do this in probably 2-3 months

Lip Products (lipstick/gloss/balm) : 12 ummm...A year if I'm lucky

Skincare(wash/moisturizer/mask/toner) 7..Probably 3 months 

Fragrance: 4 maybe 7 months to a year

Haircare (shampoo/conditioner/serum/mask) 5 : maybe 2-3 months

Nail Polish (colored only): 14 I would have to use this for probably 2 years straight

Brush Cleaner: 1 I give it a month since one is kinda low

Eyeliner/Mascara: 7 : this will probably take 6-12 months

Eyeshaows: 48: this will take my entire life (and its only ten percent ahhh!)

Finishing Powders: 1 (i give this a month since one is almost done)

Foundation: 2 (i give this 2 months since i have two that are kind of low)

Blush: 8 (this would probably take two years (i have been steadily working on my MAC Coppertone and should finish that in about a month)

 

Whish me luck as you can see this is an addiction for me! So maybe if yall tell me how nuts i am it will help too lol.
