Project 10 Pan & Project 10 Bottle!

8 Dec

So, I never thought I would do this, but to clear out some clutter I’ve decided to go on a Project 10 Pan & a Project 10 Bottle.

While I have been buying a lot of makeup in the last few months, the point of this project is not to curb my spending. I just want to be able to use everything that I have before the expiry date.  During this time I can experiment with what I have, see what’s worth the money and what’s not, see what colors work well & what doesn’t…the list goes on.

Rules for both:

  • At least 8 finished items must be from the original list, 2 can be subbed out for 2 bonus items (or 4 minis) that were not on the list but finished during the course of the project.
  • 2 minis/travel size/deluxe sample size count as one full size product. 5 mini fragrance samples or 10 foil sachets also count as one full sized product.
  • Should I break P10P, any items purchased will not be used until end of P10P. I will also have to finish 2 additional items (4 minis) per item purchased. Exception: I’ll be using my Sephora rewards card in the next couple of days to buy Naked2, but I won’t open it until the end of P10P.
  •  Also can purchase necessities should need arise & P10P go longer than expected (Basically, hygiene items not included in P10P use-ups or spending ban) Only items that do not have any backup options can be purchased.
  • I’m still receiving my subscription boxes: Ipsy, Sample Society, and Popsugar, but won’t use the MU items.

Everything that I’ve chosen is nearly new to approximately halfway used.  That sounds like an awful choice, but many of the items are minis.  If an items is very near to completion, I counted it as a mini & paired it with another mini or almost empty item.  This way, it’ll take a while, but not too long to finish. I’m thinking it’ll last somewhere between 3 and 4 months.

Even if no one else ever reads this, this post will hold me accountable. I’ll update frequently to help keep my motivation up

Wow. That was a long explanation. Now for the photos & items!

P10P: Started Dec 5, 2012

P10P Items

P10P Items

  1. Stila Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer: This is about half used & will probably take me the longest. I’m trying to wear it at least 4 days a week.
  2. Sephora Anti-Shine Foundation Primer Minis (2): one new, one half used.
  3. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer & Benefit Girl Meets Pearl Highlighter Minis: Both nearly new.
  4. Stila Lip Glaze in Apricot & Clinique Almost Lipstick in Shy Honey Minis: Both about half used
  5. Stila One Step Primecolor in Kitten: about half used.
  6. L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Waterproof &Tarte Gifted Mascaras:  Both have about a month of wear left.
  7. Tarte Flush Cheek Stain & Multiplye Eye Primer Minis: Both brand new
  8. Lancome E/S in Gaze: Small pan from a quad.  I hit the pan on it last week, so I think I can finish the rest in 3-4 months!
  9. Tarte 360 Creaseless Eye Primer & MUFE HD Finishing Powder Minis: Two of my new favorite things, but I have some similar products to try
  10. Estee Lauder Artist Crayon eyeliner in Black: only good for the waterline & tightline. It’s too dry to draw smoothly on the upper lashline so this will also take ages.

(Please ignore the elf primer in the photo, I took that out of the P10P)

P10B: Started Dec 5, 2012

P10B Items

P10B Items

  1. VS Very Sexy Noir Body Mist & EDP Minis: Mist is almost empty but EDP is nearly full
  2. Simple Toner & Cleansing Wipes: Toner is almost finished & about half of the wipes.
  3. Olay Total Effects cleanser & Garnier Refreshing Remover cleansing wipes: Only about 5 wipes left so combining with the last 1/3 of the cleanser.
  4. True Blue Spa Paraffin Softening Hand Lotion: 3/4 left
  5. Burts Bees Radiance Lotion: About half left.
  6. VS At First Sight Lotion: About half left
  7. L’Oreal Clean Artist & Lancome Bifacil MU Removers: L’Oreal is almost done so combining with the Lancome mini.
  8. Ahava Mud Mask & Apogee Protein Treatment: New, have backups.
  9. L’Oreal Collagen Moisture Filler Night Cream: About half left
  10. Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play Hairspray: This one only has about five uses left, but I have many others.

If you read all of that, I’ll buy you a drink.

I’ll be updating whenever I finish 2 or more products. I anticipate this will take between 3 and 4 months, so I’m digging in my heels & settling in for the long haul (kidding, no hauls!).

Thanks for reading,

Bree

      Thanks for following. The makeup items are going so slowly, that it’s really been testing my resolve. Good luck with your P10P! I’d love to read about your progress.
