Project 10 Pans: Part 1 – Make-Up
April 2, 2011 8 Comments
I’m sure that many of you have heard for Project 10 Pans. It is a less radical version of no-buy, where you are not allowed to purchase anything new until you have spent 10 products from your stash.
Yesterday, I’ve been organizing my stash and found tons of items that are almost finished and which are only wasting space. I’ve decided that it is a high time for me to get rid of those items, so I’ve started my own Project 10 Pans (or in my version Project 42 Pans) in which I’m hoping to finally spend all of these products (and to save some money, of course, because I’ve got my eye on Dior Summer collection).
In the past, I’ve been starting such a project, but soon I would cave in and the project would fail. This time I’ve decided to post about the project on-line, hoping that it will force me to stick with it.
I’ve formed these rules:
– I’m allowed to buy only essential items at any time (such as a moisturizer, a foundation, a cleanser or a mascara)
– after I spend first 8 products, I’m allowed to purchase only one thing, as a reward for myself (luckily for me, many of the products are sample of GWP size, so it shouldn’t be too hard)
Plus several additional rules:
– I’ll stop carrying all my credit cards with me
– the amount of cash I’m carrying with me must not be enough to get any make-up item
This post features the first part of my project which concerns make-up. I’ve only put one eyeshadow palette in this project, as it would be impossible to spend even half of mine eyeshadows.
I’m including links for:
So, the list is:
Guerlain Kiss Kiss Shine Lipstick in Strawberry Shine
Givenchy Rouge Interdit in Maharani Rose
Estee Lauder Lash Primer +
Oriflame Base Coat
Benefit lipgloss in I’m with the Band
Max Factor Vibrant Curve Effect Lipgloss in Majeste (not on the picture)
Essence eyeshadow quad (I don’t know the name of the shade)
Well, that’s 16 make-up products to spend. I hope that this time I’ll be able to stick to my project for more than two weeks.
Wish me luck
