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

@sephoramusthave hmm, i never experienced the greasey-ness. i actually left the mask on overnight, but only on the spots where i have scars. after several weeks of no change... the hassle of the white flakies getting all over my pillow cases and hair made me stop using it completely. i dont have the patience to continue using it. i would love to give it to someone who is curious about the product, but i don't find that to be sanitary LOL. i did use a q-tip to apply it, but still i don't think anyone would want to try my used one?? so mine is just sitting in my cabinet waiting for me to do something with it.

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

katie723---Use it as an all over mask until it dries ( 10 min or so), then try to remove it. You'll definately know what I mean when I say "greasy". Mario Badescu products DO dry out if you dont keep the lid on tight enough or if you dont use it up in a certain amount of time so if you dont want to waste it, just use it as an all over face mask and rinse it off.

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

UPDATE TIME. I have to say I'm not doing very well...and I have an excuse! When I do wear makeup, I am using these things but I don't wear makeup everyday because my school doesn't allow it.

3. MAC Date Night Dazzleglass (1/3 left still....used it 2 times)

5. M.A.C. Eyeshadow in Once Upon A Time (LE) (My dent is getting bigger....but I don't think I'll hit pan for another couple months)

6. Clinique 1/7 oz. DDML (1/2 left - I use this everyday twice so I'm definitely progressing!)

7. Buxom Lash (Can't tell how much is left- sorry! It's past 3 months but I go by smell/consistency/etc. in terms of throwing out mascara)

Just finished my Clinique gloss! YAY! In the garbage it goes. 

So excited to finish up that Dazzleglass soon, in the B2M bag it will go!

I should probably just toss the Buxom by now but I love it too much and I have too many other mascaras to consider buying a new one!

Just finished my Clinique DDML. It actually got thrown a few days ago, but I’ve been too lazy to write a post.

I’ll be excited to finish up that Dazzleglass soon, in the B2M bag it will go!

I actually should toss 2 mascaras, Buxom and Maybelline Full N’ Soft, so maybe I’ll swap something out on this list for that Maybelline mascara.

4 down, 6 to go! I feel accomplished! Smiley Very Happy

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

You know, it figures I'm finishing stuff up that's not on my list again.  Now it's Clinique's Moisture Surge, the Algenist eye renewal balm, and Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments in Rose and Original! (My Dove body wash too...the new one I got, Cream Oil with Cherry Blossom/Almond scent smells SOOO good!)

 

I'm starting to think I need a 10 pan just for skincare at this point.  I've got MAYBE a quarter of a bottle left of my Origins Mega Mushroom Advanced Face Serum and probably half of the Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus serum.  I'm busy imagining the look on my husband's face right now when he realizes all of my skincare is starting to run out at the same time.  He's going to freak.  However, if it's the same stuff I normally use up and I'm not buying extras of stuff I won't really use, he can't get really too mad about it.  Which I'm just saying now for the record, he just AGREED to.

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

@waterbaby1981 I just LOL'd at your line saying you were imaging the look on your husbands face when you run out of your skincare all at once.. hahaah, I hate when that happens, I usually run out of an eye product first before my moisturizer, helps to keep me from doing one huge haul at once I guess!
