Project 10 Pan

Well, I'm officially starting my Project 10 Pan, which I am really excited about. What this means is I have to use up 10 makeup items before going out and buying anything else, with the exception of products that need to be replaced after a few months - ie: mascara.

Well, it didn’t take long to narrow down which products I am choosing for this project. This was inspired from my last post, and also because I had a few products in my collection that were WAAYYYY past their expiration date. Like I said before, it felt really great to use some things up, and I thought a P10P would be a great way to start using up some products that are getting pretty close to being done. I was going to include some skincare items as well, however I feel like my skincare routine doesn't change a lot, so it wouldn't be as interesting as doing makeup items, with the exception of one product.

A couple of these were no brainers right away when I started going through my collection. I couple of these items have hit pan already, and I thought I might as well keep on trucking along with them.

MACs Brulee Eyeshadow – one of the first colours I ever bought. Has been a staple for years, yet still on the same pan believe it or not. Oh, and please excuse my fingers in these photos, I have no idea why they look so red. 

Anastasia Highlighting Brow Kit – I don’t believe this guy is available anymore. I find that too bad, because I’ve used it almost every day for the past 2 years, and there it still lots to go. You can see which colours I use more frequently.

 MAC Studio Fix Powder – END ALREADY! I’ve had this for about 8 months and she’s still going. I'm getting so close now!

Benefit Hoola Bronzer – you can definitely tell there is less product in the pans now after they changed the packaging. I’ve only been using this guy for 10 months, although I’ve heard some people use the old one for over 2 years.

MAC Viva Glam V Lipstick – I believe this was one of my first MAC lipsticks ever bought from a recommendation on Youtube, and will be glad when this one is gone. It is obvious that buying these lipsticks are for a good cause, however I always thought it was just alright, and was never wowed.

Sephora Instant Depuffing Roll On Gel – I’m about half way through this as well, and really like it for a pick me up in the morning. It has a great cooling sensation around the eyes, and I like that I get some moisture without it caking my concealer.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer – trying to use up only so I can try out my Maybelline Dream Lumi Concealer.  I have one waiting patiently to be opened, but I wanted to use this first. This isn't a bad concealer, but over the years I've found other ones that work a lot better.

 Sephora Anti-Shine Primer – because I always need shine control. This also helps to make my pores looks smaller as well. 

NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base – my favourite eye primer. This one is getting close to being done, but thank goodness I have a few backups.

EOS Lip Balm in Sweet Mint – another favourite. I just love the way these feel, taste, smell, and hydrate. I have a backup of this as well waiting for me. It's funny the way it wears down over time, since it started as such a pretty little sphere.

And there you have it! I'm curious to see how long it will take to use these products up. It has always taken me longer than most people to get through things anyways. I have no idea how people can go through an entire blush in like 3 months. I guess I'm careful about not getting carried away with anything.

I will be sure to a post with my progress and keep you updated. If anyone reading this has done a P10P, I'd love to know how it went for you. I've been watching a few videos on Youtube on some of the girl's progress and I'm hoping I have the same will power to use all of this stuff up! Wish me luck!
