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

@waterbaby thanks for your thoughts Smiley Happy wow, i cant believe the Clinique cream balls up if you apply too much! haha, so did the recycle bin get taken out?! Smiley Tongue and i was also wondering, does Origins still give you samples for bringing in empty containers even if you don't buy anything? :X

 

@mish2378 i don't like Stay Don't Stray either! I noticed it creased after a few hours, not a cute look! I've got a big bottle (?) of it, so I'd feel terrible tossing it... I'll probably just use it if I know I'm only going to be out for a couple hours?? I love using up ANY kind of product now... then I start thinking, ah! I should have included that in my 10 Pan!

 

@brandiandi WOW! fantastic job with your 10 Pan! you'll be done sooner than you know it! haha, i totally agree with you... I noticed I've been applying my lip glosses at random times now when I usually wouldn't be applying it HAHA Smiley Very Happy

 

@marinaanne i LOVE the buxom lash, too! i think i've had mine for about 4 months now and its started to smudge below my eye, but i'm struggling to part with it!! i did buy two full sized one during the Sephora Black Friday sale... so maybe when those arrive in the mail, it'll be easier to toss my 4-month old buxom sample!

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

I just used up my Sibu Beauty Complexion Soap ( this is the second one that I have used up completely and I will be back for more when needed, it removes 100% of my makeup, including eye, naturally and with great ingredients.)

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

I just heard about Project 10 Pan today and think it's a really cool idea! I am 25 but only started getting into makeup this year. I'd always loved it on other people but was horrible at applying it, but thanks to YouTube I'm pretty amazing at it now (if I do say so myself). Smiley Wink Anyway, because I only just started my collection this year I haven't amassed too much. I think the only problem area I can see developing is eyeshadows! I use my UD Naked Palette and the Too Faced Smokey Eye collection interchangeably but before I became a full-fledged Sephoraholic I bought the 88 Warm Palette and the 36 Smokey Palette from Coastal Scents and haven't touched either of them since I got the Naked Palette. So I decided today that I am going to make a conscious effort to start using my CS palettes!! I mostly live in the neutrals/gray scale, but I can start experimenting with colors from the CS Smokey Palette. To be honest every time I try to wear a bold colored lid I feel a little foolish (even though I love it on other people). Do you ladies have any suggestions? I have light/medium olive toned skin, brown/black hair, brown eyes. Thanks!! Smiley Happy

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

@Sara505-I am 23 and just got into makeup this year too! I think the key for anything new is just getting used to seeing yourself wearing it. Try a bold makeup look on days you are planning to stay home, and gradually you will get used to seeing the bright colors. (I do this myself haha)

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

I'm almost done with the mask, toner and lipbalm which only leaves me with 2 items left so I'd better add some beauty items to my 10 pan before I reward myself for completing a 10 pan too soon by buying *more* items I dont need. So I have to either mostly use up these items or use them up completely to be able to buy something else and I cant get anything I dont already have. No matter how much I miss my favorites. Wish me luck. Its gonna be a loong no buy.

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

YAY GOOD JOB! Smiley Happy

 

I think I'm going to make a new 10 Pan. because the other one isn't going so great! LOL. I don't know what I'll put on it. AH!

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

I might have to make another 10 pan too...since I'm pregnant, some of my normal skincare stuff I can't use any more if it's got hydroxy acids, retinoids or salicyclic acid.

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

I finished off the Dior lipbalm and Thayers toner. 8 down...22 to go...

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

good for you for committing to such a big list! Rosebud salve takes me forever to go  through.. although it is such a staple that it is one of the only products i've used up before this lol. 

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

I love the Rosebud Salve! Even when I use it every day it lasts months and months.

 

I hope that I can *truly* commit to the 10 pan....I do a much better job with the monthly no buys. As long as I keep reaching for the items on my 10 pan I will use it all up. I dont care when I finish things off as long as they are gone by the expiration date(and they always are). But I like the 10 pan thing because it constantly reminds me that I have a never ending collection of beauty items in my bathroom. (And that makes it a lot easier to turn down new stuff thats constantly coming out).

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

I just finished off the Mario Badescu Mask (and no I dont like it). I'm actually kind of proud of myself because when I look at my original 10 pan(the very first 10 items on my list) I finished off all but 2. And one more item and I've completed 1/3 of my new list. Score!

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

A bunch of us are trying a less ambitious project 5 pan:

 

Link:http://community.sephora.com/t5/Makeup/Project-5-Pan/qaq-p/195753.  I am still on board for this and some of the items are actually disappearing!  I looked at my Pink Leopard today and I can actually see pan in a couple of places!  I want to completely use it up since I also have the Leopard Love palette which contains Pink Leopard. 

 

I can join 10 pan with my 5 pan items, plus it looks like skincare is allowed in this project, so since I cleaned out my makeup closet last week, I definitely have a bunch of skincare to put to the other 5 "pans"

 

Here goes!

 

 

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!

 

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

 

3) Too Faced Pink Leopard Blush- about 1/4 left now, was 1/2 when I started 5 pan.

 

4) MAC tinted lip conditioner SPF 15 in some rose shade, the label fell off, 1/2. 

 

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

 

6) Kinerase Deep Wrinkle Control can't tell how much is in there, but it feels like more than 1/2.

 

7) MAC shadow in Little Minx

 

8) Sephora Lash Booster

 

9) Shu Uemura Lash Primer

 

10) Pixi Illuminated Tint and Conceal

 

Here's to success for us all!

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

Love it.  I put my list on this thread and then yesterday I finished off my Clinique 7 Day Scrub and Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer.  Plus my Shiseido SPF 55 Sunscreen Cream (it's okay, I at least have a backup at all times of sunscreen or sunblock)!  That's ok though...I still have a couple of other scrubs and I like my Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer better than the Clinique.  Even with primer, the Clinique one was harder to blend and it was too easy to accidentally get way too much product in your hand than you intended.

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

@waterbaby1981 thats awesome, good for you! Smiley Happy i, on the other hand, have not finished a single thing on my list! keep it up =)

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

good for you! not only have i not made any progress, i haven't even touched my list!

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

I actually just posted my Project 6 Pan on the Project 5 Pan thread PrettyinPA showed, so I guess I'll add 4 more and jump on this thread as well! I actually started about a week ago, so I already finished an item. Finishing that item felt so good though - I'm looking forward to finishing more and updating this post! Here they all are though!

 

1. Clinique Makeup Remover (FINISHED)

2. Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Styling Spray (1/3 left - I hope Hair Products count!)

3. MAC Date Night Dazzleglass (1/3 left)

4. Benefit Highbeam Sample (1/2 left - it's a large sample though!)

5. M.A.C. Eyeshadow in Once Upon A Time (LE) (I'm telling myself I just have to hit pan on this, not actually finish it. Not sure how much is left, though you can definitely see a dent in it)

6. Clinique 1/7 oz. DDML (2/3 left)

7. Buxom Lash (Can't tell how much is left- sorry!)

8. Bobbi Brown Glitter Gloss in Baby Pink (2/3 left)

9. Tarte Double Sided Eyeliner (3/4 left...this came in the Eye Couture Palette)

10. Herbal Essences Tousle Me Soft Mousse (about 1/3 left)

 

 

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

I have completely spent my ClickR Stop Time Night Cream so now I have 9 items left. Can I add another item or do I have to wait until I finish off the rest of the products to make a new project? If I can add a new item, I'll go with Dior Creme de Rose Lipbalm. So here's the new list:

 

1. Dior Gloss Show in Charlotte Moka ( Half Full)

2. Benefit Some Kinda Gorgeous Foundation in Original ( Almost empty but I do have a brand new backup and I wont take it off the list until I spend them both)

3. Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in RSVP ( Half full but I do have backup)

4. Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Facial Soap ( almost gone but I do have backup)

5. Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Facial Cleanser ( new, used only 4-5 times)

6. Dior Creme de Rose Lipbalm ( Half Full)

7. Mario Badescu Whitening Mask ( Half Full)

8. Thayers Alcohol Free Toner in Original ( almost empty, but I do have backup)

9. Avalon Organics Lavender Scrub ( 1/3 left)

10. TheBalm Mary Loumanizer ( I've hit pan but there's more than half left)

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

Wow good job guys! Impressive! 

 

Do you know what ingredient in purity that you're reacting to? I've been using it the past week or so, and so far so good! my boyfriend likes it too! haha

 

I did throw out my Clinique High Impact mascara deluxe size (which was on my list) cause it smelled like it would make my eyes itch haha. Also i think it may be near the expiration... Hmm. 

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

i just looked at my list again and discovered i'm doing better than i thought haha, since i thought I haven't been using any of the products. I think that's a sign that I have way too much stuff if I can't even remember what's on my 10 Pan!!

 

1. too faced primed & poreless bronze tint (i have a few samples & a full size - i want to finish the samples!) 

2. clinique high impact mascara (i have two sample sizes, i think 1 is at the 3 month mark!) --> threw them out

3. philosophy purity (i have 2 2oz bottles) --> been using them all week! woohoo!

4. smashbox limitless liner in onyx (i have a few half sizes laying around)

5. benefit cream shadow in rsvp (deluxe sample size) --> used it once!

6. nars multiple in south beach (i have two minis)

7. any of the mini nars glosses i have (waaay too many)

8. smashbox fusion softlights (mini)

9. one of my c.o bigelow lemon lip balms --> used one today!

10.lancome bi-facil eye makeup remover (i have 2 mini bottles!) --> used it a few times!

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

I love project 10 pan! I should get my list going....

 

1. Stila travel palatte in "Pretty in Paris"

2. MUFE foundations in 115 and 117 (need to decide if I must use up both or just one or the other)

3. Bobbi Brown creamy concealer kit in Poreclain. 

4. MUFE face primer

5. Stila lip gloss in "Majesty"

6. MUFE HD powder

7. Pencil Eyeliners ( I have a UD, MUFE,and a Mally pencil to use)

8. MK brow pencil

9. Mascaras (1 Clinique, 2 Lancome, 1 BE, 1 Rimmel) 

10. Eye primers (Have one BE and one UD) 

 

I think this is going to take a while. If I run out of primers, mascaras, foundations, or concealers, I will repurchase them. I have enough of everything else to last a 100 years.... Smiley Very Happy

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

i still feel like primers/foundations and the like are hard to run out of! 

good luck with your 10 Pan! wohoo!

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

yay! look at everyone's progress! Smiley Happy and I agree with an earlier post from waterbaby... I noticed other products are closed to being used up that aren't even on my list! I will continue following my 10 Pan list, and if any other products get used up... those can count towards my 10. Is that cheating? It's just that my makeup collection is fairly new and it's so darn hard to finish them up! hehe Smiley Happy

 

here's my progress...

 

1. Sephora Mineral Foundation Powder in Medium 25- 3/4 through, but it may take me a month or two to finish!

2. Sephora Lip Gloss in Pink Ballerina - about half way through. i haven't seen that lip gloss in awhile... it might be lost in one of my purses =X

3. Clinique Lip Gloss in Bamboo Pink - still half way through but i use it a lot!

4. NYX Lip Gloss in Beige -this is fairly new... but i use it throughout the day! Smiley Happy

5. Stila Liquid Eye Liner in Black -this product lasts a long time! i love it. it should go dry by the end of the year (omg!)

6. BADgal Lash - finished last week

7. L'oreal Voluminous Mascara - still has a month left.

8. Maybelline One by One Mascara - dried up last week.

9. UD Primer Potion - I have two small samples,can't tell how much is left?!

10. ELF Blush in Tickled Pink - still haven't hit pan... sooo close!! but not quite!

and any of my UD eye shadows in my Naked palette - haven't even hit pan!

 

some other products that i noticed will be used up... by the end of the year! lol!

 

- Estee Lauder Stay In Place Concealer - it's hard to see how much is left... but I should toss it at the end of the year (if it lasts that long) because i've had it for awhile.

- Stila Sun Bronzer Powder - already hit pan and I could use this as a fall blush =)

- Benefit Dandelion - to be completely honest, i haven't used this in about a year... but i totally hit pan, so i'll start using it for a subtle hint of a pink sheen.

- Buxom Lash - just started using this, but I will toss it by the end of the year.

 

 

i guess it looks like someone's going to be on a no-buy until 2012! hmph! oh well, i do need to pay off my credit card before i shop for Xmas gifts... and I should be spending my $$ on others and not myself, right?! it's the season of GIVING...?!?! oh dearrrrr.

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

@jxw200: No idea what ingredient in Purity I'm reacting to.  Pretty annoying, because it'd be a great cleanser if it didn't make little red bumps from allergy reactions pop up and then take FOREVER to go away.  I like the 2 in 1 makeup remover/cleansers.  Probably why I like the makeup remover wipes for lazy nights when I don't want to go upstairs and use everything to take it off!  (Maybe I should bring it DOWNSTAIRS for that then?  Probably a good idea.) 

 

@Katie723:  My family isn't doing Christmas gifts so to speak this year (something we started last year, since my six week old daughter passed away 12/29/10.  We didn't feel like doing anything except a family dinner.  It was too hard after losing her and my grandma within four months of each other).  It's actually quite nice to not be expected to bring gifts for everyone, plus we have some credit cards to pay off as well.  It's nice to just spend time with family and be glad we have each other.  Maybe that's an idea you could pose to your family? 

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

waterbaby1981---My heart sank when I read the loss of your daughter. I am so sorry and I hope that nothing but blessings and love come your way from now on. 

 

*Hugs*
