Project 10 Pans: Part 1 – Make-Up

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:

Part 2 – skincare

Part 3 – hair and bodycare

So, the list is:

Guerlain Kiss Kiss Lipstick in Rose Ingenue

Guerlain Kiss Kiss Shine Lipstick in Strawberry Shine

Givenchy Rouge Interdit in Maharani Rose

Guerlain Kiss Kiss Stick Gloss in Corail des Mers



Estee Lauder Lash Primer +

Estee Lauder Spotlight

Clarins Lisse Minute

Oriflame Base Coat



Guerlain Kiss Kiss Lipgloss in Rose Sunset

Benefit lipgloss in I’m with the Band

Chanel Aqualumiere Gloss in Party Red

Chanel Aqualumiere Gloss in Candy Glow

Max Factor Vibrant Curve Effect Lipgloss in Majeste (not on the picture)



Essence eyeshadow quad (I don’t know the name of the shade)

Dior eyeliner in Trinidad Black

Max Factor Kohl eyeliner in Black

Guerlain Issima Illuminating Concealer


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:)
