Post in Beauty Confidential


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

okay its slowly moving along....




As much as I wanted to ignore this thread with my stack of products I haven't finished ( Smiley Wink ), I had a flash of inspiration this morning while perusing what others are working on for their own 10 pan projects.


1. Devita sunscreen (not that I want to get rid of it, I'm adding it to my 10 pan project in order to start to religiously use it everyday).

2. My two drugstore BB Creams (they were experiments into the world of BB Creams, not the greatest, but I want to use them up before I buy anything more in the foundation realm)

3. Boots Lash & Brow perfector (clear gel)

4. bareMinerals eyeshadow in big smile (ballet pink, I think this would make a good highlighter)

5. bareMinerals brightening pearl mineral veil

6. Laura Mercier blush in Opera (I've already hit pan with this, but want to finish it up!

7. UD Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Greed (I just recently tossed my NYX eyeshadow bases that I've been using, as I realized there were several ingredients in them that I typically avoid...can't believe I didn't catch it before).

8. Drugstore mascara (I'm inspired to step back up to a better product, but will use this up before buying a new one)

9. bareMinerals READY SPF 15 Touch Up Veil in Translucent

10. bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 4.0


I'm very torn on the last one.  I REALLY want Naked2 with this next sale...and I SHOULD finish my #10 (which is a set of 4 natural shadows) BEFORE I buy Naked2, because knowing how I roll, I'll end up putting Naked2 first as my daily shadow.  But the savings with the sale coming up is almost too good to pass up!  Argh.  Smiley Sad






I ended up skipping the Naked2 palette (I actually refrained from buying ANYTHING during the sale...go me!) and am putting using up what I have first and foremost.


I'll treat myself to a massive haul after I use up my existing stash.  Smiley Happy


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! Smiley Happy
