When I was unwrapping my new cosmetic items and trying (unsuccessfully) to find a nice home for them, I realized I seriously need to purge some make-up items. Now, purging is not a new concept to me. I have done this before with items I know I don't touch often, if at all, and have gotten myself down to bare bones (in my opinion) of my make-up collection. Pretty much everything left is MAC save for the few face items that my face will just not agree with using MAC. Yet still, STILL, I have too much!!
Enter Project 10 Pan. What is Project 10 Pan? Well it's an idea created by another make-up blogger/youtuber, Lollipop26. Basically what you do is you choose 10 items in your current stash and use it all up before you're allowed to purchase a new item. It's kind of like rediscovering your old favorites while saving money at the same time.
So I am going to start this Project 10 Pan... with a slight twist. Since some of the items I have chosen are relatively old, I mean old to the point where I should maybe just throw it out, I am going to start throwing something away with every pan I hit. So here's my first stash...
It's a few more than 10 products, but since the pan is already peeking in some of them items, I didn't want to feel like I was cheating. Again, there is nothing wrong with these items. They were and are still some of my very favorites but for the obvious reason that I have too much to choose from, I sometimes neglect them. Here they are in the order they appear on the image...
- Stila Lip Glaze in Creme Bouquet
- Smashbox Lipgloss in 35mm
- Bonne Bell Lip Definer in Spice
- Trucco Lipstick in Ingenue
- Lancome Juicy Tubes in No Reserve
- NYX Sheer Gloss in Nude
- Stila Lip Gloss in ???A51?? (shimmery pink)
- MAC Shadestick in Taupographic
- MAC Shadestick in Pink Couture
- MAC e/s in Satin Taupe
- MAC e/s in Phloof!
- MAC e/s in Jest
- MAC Warm Eye Palette: Pasheema, Retrospeck, Bitter, Sable, Cranberry, Mover Shaker
- NARS Orgasm
Honestly, these items have to be the oldest items in my stash and probably the most I had when I first started with make-up. I am thinking the lip stuff may be just done in general, but I don't have the heart to toss them without giving them a few more chances to wow me. So there it is, the supply I will be using for the next few weeks until each and every container is empty. We'll see how this goes and if I will crack and use something outside the stash. Anyone else willing to take on this challenge? And I am being realistic, this will be a challenge!
p.s. that bright neon green in the palette? yeah, that's just gonna get tossed.
