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

I got fix plus bc so many you tube people raved about it. It is so much better than the UD setting spray but I don't plan on getting a new one once I finish it. I do thnk it helps keep make up on and can have other funtions  like making an eye shadow into a liner.

As for the moisturizer I love it. I want to use up my clinique one before I buy another one of the mositurizers.

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

@mish2378 thats the reason why i purchased my Fix+ too! i haven't used it enough to compare to my other setting spray, which is by the same brand that makes UD's... but i do use it when i use my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer since it is too matte for me. i use it mostly for "foiling" my Bare Escentuals loose powder eye shadows. i'm liking it so far =)

 

nice, i'll have to look into that skincare line Smiley Happy i know what you mean about having a bunch of moisturizers! i recently used up my Lush moisturizer and now i'm working on my philosophy Hope In A Jar moisturizer. i have to say, it feels good using up products!

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

Love it.  Just finished off steps 1 and 2 of Clinique 3 Step and am about to finish the Turnaround Overnight and Origins Mega Mushroom Plantidote Face Relief Serum.  I know I'm starting to get fairly low on the Clinique Laser Focus UV Damage and Wrinkle Repair...but I made sure I bought some more of the Origins serum since my face hasn't flared up since I've been using it again.  Other than that, not much progress made on my list, except for the fact that the setting powder in my Undercover Pot and the brightening powder are just about gone (seriously, it's amazing how much you DON'T use each time you do your makeup to set concealer, highlighter, etc.)

 

Katie: LM Tinted Moisturizer Oil Free is my HG!  Love that stuff.  I'm currently using the Sephora Tinted Moisturizer and like it (it's literally half the price of the LM one too, at $21 instead of $42), but I still like the LM better even though the lightest color in the Sephora one is also a perfect match (Porcelain in LM is ALWAYS my color, no matter what time of year).  I'm curious about her Radiance Primer coming out soon though.  Supposedly it makes you look wide awake and not tired.  Hopefully it's not QUITE as radiant as the Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer though!  I'll definitely be trying a sample when that comes out.

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

i finished one of my mini bottles of lancome bifacil! yay! I don't really want to use the other one so I think I may use it as part of a gift? Smiley Happy

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

@waterbaby nice!! =) how do you like the Clinique Turnaround Overnight and Origins Mega Mushroom serum?

 

i love the LM TM, also! i feel like i get pretty good coverage for a TM! I'm in the color Bisque and I think it's a pretty good match but not PERFECT. but i still enjoy it =) radiance primer? hmm, im interested also! i agree, if its anything like the illuminating TM, count me out! LOL

 

@mish2378 woo-hoo, first item crossed off! congrats!

 

@jxw200 yay, thats like... 4 off ur list now? woot! do you like the benefit creaseless shadow in rsvp? i find it super light and way too shimmery for me! my lil sample just sits in my drawer Smiley Sad

 

 

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

I will tell you what this whole thing has taught me. I am getting samples from now on of everything I want before I buy it. I still using the benefit eye primer sample and it is still going strong.

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

@mish2378 i agree! sephora is pretty generous with their samples, too! i mean, if the product can be sampled like products in squeeze tubes.

 

i also like mini products, like mini mascaras or mini lip glosses... at least i KNOW i'll eventually finish it up!

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

I normally use the Clinique Repairwear Intensive Night Cream, but I've found that I like the Turnaround Overnight much better.  It's lighter and sinks in really quickly.  The only problem I have with it is that if you accidentally put on a little too much (I smooth any excess down my neck and chest) it can ball up.  I've used the Origins Mega Mushroom Plantidote Serum for years though.  In combination with the matching cream and the Clinique Redness Solutions Corrector and Pressed Mineral Powder, it controls the reactive redness/rosacea very well.

 

As for the Radiance Primer...I really hope it's not like the illuminating TM!  I'll definitely ask for a sample first.

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN
