Project 10 Pan - Update #2

I know it's been a while since I've update but I've made some great progress since my last post.

I've really been neglecting my hand and body cream so I've decided to start keeping it beside my bed so that I hopefully remember to use it. As for the shower gel, I've made considerable progress considering I only pour a few drops on my loofa before using it. At my last update, the body wash was at the first "L" and now it's at the "V".

The next few items I've been working on and going strong. You can definitely see the progress. My eyeliner is considerably shorter, and you can definitely see a lot more pan on the beige eyeshadow. I've been bending out the air from the face primer, and I've got just under a third left. I will be so happy when it's done. Finally, I'm still working on this god forsaken green face powder. As you can tell, I've definitely been using it, but I'm debating just tossing it. What do you think? It leaves a green cast that I then need to cover with a regular powder.

And now for the most exciting part....drum roll please...

Here are the items I've finished!

I'm happy to see that I'm actually making some progress with these items and with any luck, I should be done by the end of the year.

Project 10 Pan - Update #1

In case you missed it, I've started another project pan. I haven't finished anything yet but I've made some pretty decent progress. Here is my first post so you can see how far I've come in a few weeks.

So I haven't made a ton of progress on my lotion or body wash but you can definitely see that I've been using them. A little bit goes a long way.

I'm sooo close to finishing this concealer it's killing me. Everyday I'm wondering "Will today be the day?". Well... not yet.

 I'm ALMOST done both of these! This cleanser and foundation should be done within the next couple of weeks for sure!

 It's impossible to tell how far I've come with this primer. The container is completely opaque and (I'm hoping) has a ton of air in it. I've been using it for a while now and the pumping is still working like new so I guess I've still got a while to go.

 These products are going to be the death of me. My MAC blush is seeing some pretty decent progress and should be done within the next month. The green powder has been the bane of my existence. I'm obviously exaggerating but it's been really hard to use since is leaves a slight green cast. Regardless, you can definitely see some more pan there.  You can definitely see some more pan on my beige eye shadow but this is probably going to take me the longest to use up. The eyeliner is quite a bit smaller than last time as it's been sharpened a few times.

First Day of Fall Temptations

Today is the first day of fall, and with the changing season comes changing trends. I'm already being tempted to purchase a few items to get ready for the season. This is really silly considering I already have a lot of items that already fit the looks but alas, that doesn't seem to have the same affect as something NEW.

Here are a few items that I am currently lusting over:

Too FacedEverything Nice Set- $68 

Kat Von D
Monarch Eyeshadow Palette- $58

TartePin Up Girl Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Palette- $50

Kat Von DStudded Kiss Lipstick- $26

Back from Hiatus! Re-Starting Project 10 Pan

It's been quite some time since I've updated this blog but I've returned to start decluttering my stash one again. I went back into a rut while I was experiencing some family problems, health issues, and absolutely dreading going to work. I took my frustrations out on my credit card by purchasing cosmetics.

My Project Pan this time around will be a Project 10 Pan, and will include the following:

  1. Clarins- Water Comfort One-Step Cleanser with Peach Essential Water
  2. Dr. Brandt- Pores No More Primer
  3. Maybelline- Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Concealer in Fair 110
  4. MAC- MatchMaster foundation in 1.0
  5. Physician's Formula- Multi-Coloured Corrector in Green
  6. MAC- Blush in Tenderling
  7. L'Oreal- Wear Infinite Studio Secrets  Professional Eyeshadow in 801 Sandy Shores
  8. L'Oreal- HIP Studio Secrets Professional Intense Eyeliner in 320 Dark Sky
  9. Bath RetreatVanilla Body Wash
  10. Victoria's Secret- Vanilla Body Lotion

My rules include not being able to purchase any items during my project pan unless I am completely out of that type of item. For example, if I finish my Victoria's Secret Vanilla Body Lotion, I will only purchase a new body lotion if I do not have any back-ups in my stash.

I do have a pre-planned cheat... I received a ticket to the L'Oreal Fall Warehouse Sale and will definitely be purchasing some products there. They always have great prices on sunscreen and as a super fair individual who requires daily sunscreen, I don't think I should pass this chance up. I will post everything I purchase. I'm going to put myself on a very specific budget, probably around $100. What do you think would be reasonable? 

I will do my best to post weekly updates on any progress I've made with these items and do a monthly "empties" post that will include items outside of this list.

Wish me luck and help me avoid temptation!
