Project 10 Pan is the creation of the lovely Laura from Buy Now Blog Later. She came up with Project 10 Pan when she still had her YouTube channel. It's for those of us who own way too much make up. The idea behind Project 10 Pan is that you are banned from buying any make up products, until you've completely used up 10 products from your collection.
I started Project 10 Pan back in April, after realising that I have more make up than I will ever be able to use up. Initially I chose 10 items I wanted to finish. Amongst that was my Laguna Bronzer from NARS (which I had hit pan on), pictured below:
This product is however a bit like a bottomless pit. I use it every day, but I don't seem to be able to finish it! So I changed the project round slightly, with the aim of using up any 10 products from my collection (rather than pre determined products).
I didn't include mascaras or any MAC products as part of my 10 products. I go through mascara quite quick. When I use up 6 MAC products I swap them for a lipstick at MAC, so I decided not to include MAC products in this either.
So here's what I've used up:
Revlon PhotoReady Foundation in Golden Beige
NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Punjab
Laura Mercier Peach Mosaic Shimmer Bloc
Maybelline Lipstick in Natural Rosewood
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in Medium
Revlon Lipbutter in Berry Smoothie
Bobbi Brown Corrector in Light Peach
L'Oreal Glam Shine Lipgloss in Sheer Cassis
L'Oreal Super Liner Carbon Gloss
Max Factor Master Touch Undereye Concealer
I haven't bought any make up since I started this project.
Sadly I don't think I saved any money during Project 10 Pan though. As I wasn't spending my cash on make up, I had more to spend on clothes and skincare...
Even though I didn't really save any money, I still found doing Project 10 Pan a pretty good experience for me. I can now walk through Boots, Superdrug or department stores without being overcome with this massive urge to buy more make up! It's a bit like rehab for make up addicts I guess!
Thank you Laura for coming up with this project!
Well I'm so excited I'm finally allowed to buy make up again, so I need your recommendations please! Haul post coming soon :)
