It’s been a long time since my last Project 10 Pans update. I have finally spent more product, so when I count in 2 extra spent products from update #1, 3 products form update #2 and eight products featured in today’s update, I feel like I deserve a reward.
Decleor Nutri-Smoothing lipstick is a lipbalm which promises perfectly nourished and smoothed lips. The packaging contains 4 grams, which in my country retail for cca $18.
I’ve been avoiding lip balms for a very long time, because every time I’d use one, it would work for a couple of days and after I would need to use it more and more, because the balm would stop working. So far, Decleor Nutri-Smoothing Lipstick is the only lipbalm that I have used for a longer period of time (over a year) and it is still as good as it was at the beginning.
The consistency of this lipbalm is a bit unusual – it is very waxy and the scent reminds me of one lipbalm I have used when I was little. The scent might bother some people as it doesn’t disappear immediately upon the application. Also, the lipbalm has a slightly sweet taste. I don’t know if many would feel it, but I’m very sensitive to sweet, so I can.
The balm is waxy and it will create a coating over lips. Because of its waxiness, sometimes the balm might be a bit too hard to apply. I usually apply a thicker coat of it only before going to sleep and a bit of the balm is still on the lips in the morning. Since it is waxy, even if I apply it during the day, it will stay on the lips much longer than the average lipbalm.
The lips are completely moisturized and they stay that way during the whole day.
Even thought this is pricey investment, I think it is be worth the money. For me, it has lasted for a year (applying it once or twice per day).
As most of you probably know, not long ago I’ve started my Project 10 pans, which will help me to finally spend some of the items that I’ve been keeping half-spent in my stash for years (I think that the oldest item is Guerlain Kiss Kiss Maxi Shine lipstick, which is over 5 years old, and surprisingly, even now it is the same as it was the day I bought it – it didn’t changed the texture or the smell).
The list of all the items I’m planning to spend can be found here:
Today, I reporting on my first two weeks of the project.
Last Saturday, I’ve announced my new project through which I’m hoping to finally get rid some of the stuff from my stash. There are 42 product on the list, so I’ve split them up into three parts (makeup, skincare, body and haircare).

I have announced my Project 10 Pans and the rules I’m planning to stick to in this post.
This post will feature all the skincare items I want to finally spend. Most of the items are already half-spent, but for some reason, I got bored with them and put them aside. This project will finally help me to get rid of all that stuff that is wasting the space in my cosmetics cabinet.
