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

Sooo, here's an update:

 

1.  Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 in Bare Radiance (using it until it's gone now, then I can get back to my

     Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua.  I have no tinted moisturizer since Porcelain is out for at least four weeks at my closest Nordstrom!)

2.  Laura Mercier Undercover Pot (concealer's about wiped clean.  I use the camoflage occasionally for dark circles, but not often. 

     The setting powder in the bottom is almost gone though)

3.  Clinique Rinse Off Foaming Cleanser (3 uses left)

4.  Nars Orgasm/Laguna Blush/Bronzer Duo

5.  Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder (only a couple of uses left!)

6.  DiorSkin Nude Hydrating Concealer (expiry date coming up in a couple of months, should be using this up!)

7.  UD Eyeshadow Potion Primer in Eden

8.  UD Afterglow Cheek Tint in Fetish

9.  Clinique Fresh Bloom Allover Color in Posy

10. Origins Modern Friction Facial Scrub (less than 1/2 of the jar left)

 

 

Plus I just had to toss my Clinique High Lengths Mascara and the LM deluxe sample of Full Blown Volume Mascara...they're clumpy.  Also finished my Clinique Sparkle Skin Exfoliating Scrub (jar) and am getting really close to finishing the Clinique Mild Liquid Soap and Clarifying Lotion.  Probably another week or so on those. 

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

Just ran out of my Avalon Organics scrub ( LOVE IT) and I only have a couple of uses left in my Sibu Beauty Cleanser ( considering how small the bottle is, I'm beyond shocked that it lasted me just as long or longer than any of my other cleansers do). 4 out of 11 is progress right?

 

1. Dior Gloss Show in Charlotte Moka

2. Benefit Some Kinda Gorgeous Foundation in Original

3. Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in RSVP

4. Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Facial Soap

5. Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Facial Cleanser

6. ClickR Stop Time Night Cream

7. Mario Badescu Whitening Mask

8. Thayers Alcohol Free Toner in Original

9. Avalon Organics Lavender Scrub

10. TheBalm Mary Loumanizer

11. Dior Creme de Rose Lipbalm

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

1. Sephora Mineral Foundation Powder in Medium 25

2. Sephora Lip Gloss in Pink Ballerina - ive been keeping this in my pocket at work for touch ups!

3. Clinique Lip Gloss in Bamboo Pink

4. NYX Lip Gloss in Beige

5. Stila Liquid Eye Liner in Black DRIED UP! tossed this out this past weekend!

6. BADgal Lash - finished.

7. L'oreal Voluminous Mascara

8. Maybelline One by One Mascara - finished.

9. UD Primer Potion - geez, there is so much in this lil sample!

10. ELF Blush in Tickled Pink

The next anticipated item to get used up completely would be... the mascaras. Then my Sephora lip gloss or the concealer. It's a longgg shot for the rest of the items! I'm okay with that, I'm counting on Xmas for any new makeup treats =)

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

To all,

 

What do you think is the most challenging part of this 10 Pan Project?

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

Friends and Family sales going on everywhere ahh! haha.

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

@brandiandi: I hear you on that!  Especially since the VIB 20% is going on this weekend...and it's my birthday too!  Going to desperately try NOT to go nuts.  This is why I purposely didn't do the no-buy this month.  Smiley Wink

 

Katie:  Hardest part?  Has to be finishing makeup products, for me.  All my skincare stuff seems to go at the same time!  Let's check out my list:

 

1.  Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 in Bare Radiance (This is going to end up being tossed or used when spring comes...it's not matching my skin tone at this point.  Neck and face don't match!)

2.  Laura Mercier Undercover Pot (concealer's about wiped clean.  I use the camoflage occasionally for dark circles, but not often. 

     The setting powder in the bottom is almost gone though)

3.  Clinique Rinse Off Foaming Cleanser (done!)

4.  Nars Orgasm/Laguna Blush/Bronzer Duo

5.  Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder (seriously, I can barely see any now.)

6.  DiorSkin Nude Hydrating Concealer (had to toss, the consistency changed, doesn't match anymore either!)

7.  UD Eyeshadow Potion Primer in Eden

8.  UD Afterglow Cheek Tint in Fetish

9.  Clinique Fresh Bloom Allover Color in Posy

10. Origins Modern Friction Facial Scrub (less than 1/2 of the jar left)

 

What's really funny is my Clinique Turnaround Night is half done, my Laser Focus is more than half done, my Origins Plantidote serum is 3/4 done (and it's expensive!) and my liquid soap and clarifying lotion are on their last uses (I have backups of those!)  It's true...my skincare really DOES go all at once!  I'm sure there's more...I need to get more cotton balls too. 

 

Anyway, that means I need to put more stuff on the list!  Let's put my Clinique Naturally Gentle Eye Makeup Remover on there, Clinique Take It All Off Cleansing Balm, and then as soon as that brightening powder is done, we'll put the Laser Focus up there.  Might as well put stuff that I KNOW will be used up at some point for some gratification here, right?  RIGHT?!Smiley Very Happy

 

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

hahaha! I'm never gonna finish my 10 pan if I keep adding stuff! Then I'll never be able to allow myself to shop and I want to splurge the second I finish my November No Buy. I added an 11th item and now I wish I didnt because now it will take me longer to complete it...what are the rules again? No buying anything until the 10 pan is complete? Yeah...I'm not gonna be able to make good on that haha. My goal is to complete 5 out of 11 items before December, that way I can shop guilt free and I'm almost there!

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

I guess the most challenging part is having to ignore all my other makeup/skincare items. But this is a fantastic way of using up makeup items that have been laying around for awhile Smiley Very Happy

Re: PROJECT 10 PAN

@brandiandi i agree, all those f&f sales are such a tease! even forever 21 had one! ahh!

 

@sephoramusthave yes, i feel the same way. it feels good to finish products up, but some days/weeks i just want to venture out and wear something else i've rediscovered! the rules can really be up to you. i see it more as finishing up 10 products in its entirety. im all for swapping products out or adding more products because you're still finishing up 10 products.

 

@waterbaby i noticed i finish up skincare products more quickly, too!! i should have thrown in some skincare products to my list... but i made it strictly makeup!

 

i think the most challenging part for me is finishing up my products since i've had them for about 8 months to one-year MAX. thats why i've only finished up 3 mascaras and a liquid eye liner pen so far.
