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:

Alright....I used up all of my almost empty cleansers. For some reason...I like to keep at least 3 cleansers open---one for AM use, one for PM use, and one for the shower. The one that removes makeup I save for PM use, the one that doesn't remove anything I use AM and I keep one in the shower because I always forget to put a cleanser in there and by the time I notice I'm all wet and don't feel like getting out and grabbing it.

 

Now I have one cleanser open :smileyvery-happy:

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

 

 

1. all samples

2. kat von d mascara

3. VS eye shadow pallet (not my fave just so I will not buy any eyeshadow)

4. Sephora pantone highlighter and blush on (not so good so i'll try to finish that first before I will buy a good highlighter.

5. mufe face primer (small size)

6. mac lipstic candy yum yum

7. kat von d lipstick (back stage bambi)

8. buxom lip gloss (small size)

9. estee lauder blush on

10. nars orgasm

 

 Also I have exception to the rule like if I got an email that out of stock is available lol i'm buying.

 

I will save my favorite foundation, dior bronzer, because I don't want to finish  it  and all of a sudden my HG is out of stock I will regret the project 10 pan.

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

Hehe. I miss my usual moisturizer (loccitane ultra rich face cream) but I have....3 more moisturizers to use up. Geez. I tend to buy skincare in bulk (say what?) sort of....because I only buy natural skincare and when I see it on sale I go nuts! But I do use things up a lot faster when I'm on 10 pan lockdown :smileyvery-happy: I rearranged my backup skincare stash...I had everything in makeup bags/shopping bags....now I put everything in a shoebox, standing up, and it makes it much easier for me to see everything and grab what I need quickly.

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

I started a skincare 10 pan after seeing this thread but it has slowly evolved into a 50 pan! I've already made it through 19 on my list and I'm determined to finally empty out my huge stash of shower gels, lotions, and Sephora samples before I acquire any more. Wish me luck! :smileyhappy:
