Project 10 Pan 2013

Project 10 Pan
Morning guys, I hope you're all well?

As it's January and I've recently spent up in the online sales, I thought I'd set myself a challenge in the form of 'Project 10 Pan'.

Basically, I need to finish off 10 makeup products before I can purchase anymore, which is going to be difficult as I love buying new stuff! I am going to put a slight twist on this though - I am allowing myself a small treat from elf once I hit the half way mark. I thought this would spur me on a little.

My Rules:
  1. I have to use up 5 of the products shown above before I can buy myself one small item of makeup.
  2. I have to use up all 10 of the products shown above before I can spend any other money on makeup.
  3. I have to use up the 10 products shown above before 31/3/13, or else I must start the challenge again.
  4. I have to update you of my progress every Wednesday.
  5. I have to put 50p per day in a tub for a treat when I finish the challenge.
My Products:
  • Avon Colortrend Lipstick in Sequin:There is not much of this product left.
  • Figs & Rouge Peppermint & Tea Tree Balm:
    There is around 50% of this product left.
  • Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie:
    There is around 50% of this product left.
  • Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam Foundation:
    There is quite a lot of this product left.
  • Benefit Hervana Blush:
    I am almost hitting pan on this.
  • Avon Liquid Freeze Quick Dry Spray:
    There is around 75% of this product left.
  • Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Boy:
    There is not much of this product left.
  • Avon Supershock Mascara:
    There is not much of this product left.
  • Garnier Nutritionist Caffeine Eye Roll-On:
    There is most of this product left.
  • Avon Glimmerstick in Blackest Black:
    There is not much of this product left.
So there you have it ... my Project 10 Pan Challenge. I think I am going to find it tricky to stick to this but luckily I ordered a few new makeup bits after Christmas so it's not like I won't have anything new to play with.

Have any of you set yourself a challenge for the New Year? If so, please feel free to leave your links below and I will come and take a look at them.

Take care guys.

  1. I think a lot of people are doing this sort of thing at the start of the year. Myself included. I just want to condense down my collection and I cant do that if I keep buying new things! Good luck with your challenge!

    1. This is very true :D
      I was going to join in with the 100 Day Spending Ban one but we have a baby due in May so there's no way I can get through 100 days without spending any money!
      I'm hoping that doing it this way will be more beneficial for me. Good luck with your challenge xx

  2. I love Project Pan posts!! I keep wanting to do this but I chop and change so much I just can't be that dedicated!!! xxx

    1. Aww bless. That's how I am. I never wear the same foundation two days in a row. Some weeks I use an eyeshadow palette more than single pots of the stuff but mainly I like to mix things up. I'm hoping to start my YouTube Channel this week as well so definitely can't be wearing too many of the same products. Eek xx

  3. I don't think I could ever do this! haha. Good lck, can't wait to see how you do!

    1. I will probably do really rubbish! But thank you anyway xx

  4. I think I need to do this project too! Make up can be addictive. I blame the cute boxes and bottles it comes in!

    Would you like to follow each other?

  5. I have set an extreme goal for 2013- absolutely no makeup buys for the entire year. Seems kind of crazy but I have enough foundation, unopened mascara, and lord knows enough eyeshadow to last me the entire time. 9 days in and so far so good!

    1. That is so brave! I wish I had the willpower to do that haha xx

  6. Your rules are great - I wish you great success!

    My friend and I are also doing a Project 10 Pan together, check out my blog!


    1. Thanks Jacq.

      The best of luck to you too xx

  7. This is a really good idea! I'm going to have to join you, and do it some day, I just have to get myself convinced to doing it! I don't think I could wait until all the 10 products ran out before letting myself buy another make up product!


    1. That's why I am allowing myself a treat at 5 products! I have used up one and am close to finishing up a couple of others so really pleased with my progress so far xx


Thank you for leaving a comment. I read and try to reply to every one :)
