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! Smiley Happy

 

Let me know what your list looks like! Smiley Happy

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

Oops. I forgot, no short term memory have I. This reminds me of when I used to offer snack to my fav teacher, she would smile and decline cuz its lent or something, then I'd forget the nxt day and the process repeat. >.<

 

Well, good luck on your quest the only non-fomy cleanser I like is the Koh Gen Do water, but international companies do seem to put a lot of fragrance in their prod. =\

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

let's get some recent posts to this.    I would be afraid, or chicken, because of being such a makeup addict.   I don't even care about clothes, just skincare and makeup. Smiley Sad

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

I was reading through this post and I figured that I would post my P10P that I started a few days back on here as well. I tend to use both high end and drugstore makeup, so here goes:
1. EOS Strawberry Lip Balm
2. Revlon Lip Butters (creamsicle and gumdrop - I prefer the darker shades)
3. Cherry Lip Gloss from Bath and Body Works
4. Strawberry Rosebud Salve
5. Clinique Blended Face Powder
6. Maybelline Define-a-Line
7. L'oreal Lineur Intense Liquid Liner
8. Too Faced Natural Eye Palette (just a few shadows) - my favorite palette ever, I just want to be able to rationalize buying a backup (:
And things I've finished since 3/9....
Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer (I actually liked this quite a bit)
OPI Nail Polish - Princesses Rule

 

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

self analysis: Only 4/10 of those completed are makeup items, and none of those makeup stuffs are things like lips/cheeks/eyes....which is really what I need to be working on. I do have tons of skincare so its good that I'm finishing some skincare as well...but I still think that I need to do a makeup only 5 pan soon.

Thanks for joining in fran!! This is so exciting! Its nice to do these sort of things every once in awhile, not to punish yourself for overspending but to give yourself a chance to appreciate the things you already have. I hate the thought of things sitting around, going bad and no-buys give me a chance to use up things Smiley Very Happy

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

So I started Project 10 Pan on 3/24/12 so I thought I'd add my list here! I'll update often and note the items I have finished. I will also add the items that I have finished oustide of my 10 items because I'm pretty sure some of them will be finished before the selected 10. So here are my products!

 

1. elf matte eyeshadow - nude

2. elf matte eyeshadow - brick

3. maybelline dream mousse concealer

4. revlon photoready foundation

5. revlon photoready powder

6. maybelline mineral power bronzer

7. revlon colorstay liquid liner pen

8. maybelline falsies mascara

9. revlon colorburst lipstick - soft nude

10. mac cremesheen glass - boy bait

 

This is probably going to take me quite a few months because some of these products are pretty full. I started this after seeing the video that beechbum06 posted on her youtube channel so you can check that out if you want to see it. Wish me luck!

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

I haven't written in a long while, and a lot of things got used up.

 

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! GONE!

 

2) Benefit They're Real Mascara- The deluxe sample one from Sephora, tested once and found to be ok, just not my favorite. Dried up and tossed.

 

3) Too Faced Pink Leopard Blush- about 1/4 left now, was 1/2 when I started 5 pan. Pan is definitely showing, but still hanging in there.

 

 

4) MAC tinted lip conditioner SPF 15 in some rose shade, the label fell off, 1/2. This one is used up down to the tube, I dug out the remainder and put it in a small jar in my travel bag, but I consider it GONE!

 

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

 

6) Kinerase Deep Wrinkle Control Scraped out the last bit on Sunday!

 

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

 

So I am down to 3 items, YAY!!  I hereby nominate the following replacements:

 

1) Fairy Drops Scandal Queen Mascara-  Getting near it's expiration date.

 

2) LORAC Starry Eyed Baked Eyeshadow trio in Star Studded. Pan showing on the 2 colors I use, I'm going to toss it when they're gone under the assumption that I'm never going to use the green and it'll be expired anyways.

 

3) Boscia Restorative Night Treatment- Sealed container so I don't know how much is in there.

 

4) Urban Decay Rollergirl Palette-  I can see me using up 3 of the 4 shades and that's good enough for me, I'm not crazy about Woodstock.

 

5) Christian Dior Abricot Nail cream- about 1/2 gone.

 

6) Peter Thomas Roth Powder Sunscreen- Tube/brush feels lighter, but with these, they run out all of a sudden, so I can't predict how much is in there.

 

7) Philosophy Miracle Worker Retinol Pads- Almost gone, but I couldn't think of anything else!

 

Keep on whittling away at your collections, I'm rooting for ya!

 

Yay!!

I think Ill join too. I don't have a huge collection, but I want to save a little money and this sounds like it'll help

 

1. All my mascaras. Its so silly to get new ones when they expire so quickly

2. My  Cover girl Clean foundation. I have the tiniest bit left but I now combine it with lotion to make a tinted moisturizer, and I have my bare minerals, so I rarely even do that

3. Nail polish. I have a lot, so Im not even going to be specific. Ill aim for three to the point where I can't get any more out.

4. I have two of the same elf concealers so I'm going to try to use up one bottle, then the other.

5. I also have an elf primer, but I just got the UD naked 1 which comes with a better primer. I don't want to forget about it though, because its still pretty good. Maybe Ill limit my self to UD only on weekends until I run out of elf.

6. My clinic sample. This is just me being lazy. Its a one use thing, I just haven't got around to it. Maybe listing it will help me get motivated.

7. Again, the gift of the naked palette has taken my attention off all other products, but I really need to get rid of an older palette, its really close to expiration, but I don't want to waste.

8. At least 1 bath and body lotion

9. At least 1 bath and body spray

10. At least 1 bath and body hand sanitizer.

 

I hope I can do this!
