Project 10 Pan

22 April 2009

Concept: Using up or hitting the pan of 10 makeup items to be eligible to buy 1 new makeup item. Makeup item is not limited to eyeshadow pan/pot but everything from face and liner to lip products with the exception of skin care.

I first heard this from Lollipop26 and refused to listen. Then I heard it again and this time decided that I am so in this project. I think it's about time.

As a makeup junkie, i've collected quite a few in less than 12 months. I don't have a space anymore which always prompts me to get a new storage box which to be honest is another excuse to get more makeup. Dont worry I haven't succumb to that idea yet - bigger storage box.

At this point i think i've got everything that i really need. Don't get me wrong, I love all my makeup but I think it's getting out of hand now. I do freelance makeup gigs on friends and family so it's not that bad but i dont think i need to add more to my kit... not yet at least. Maybe one day when i hit my head and convince myself to change careers :)

So think about this:

MAC will always have new collections... always! We shouldn't feel like it's now or never... :) (easy said than done i know!)

Hopefully we can do this. We can save up and maybe go on a holiday. Most of the countries are in recession so it shouldn't hurt if we skip another blusher or MSFs.

I think this is a win-win situation. We will be able to save up. We will be able to appreciate every single makeup we own. We will be able to develop this strength called self-control and we will be able to fully appreciate the meaning of reward :)

So join the challenge and together we shall beat this makeup addiction.

So far I've used up 3 products:

1. My MAC Select Sheer pressed powder
2. My MAC MSF Natural
3. My Covergirl Lash Blast

(pictures to be posted later today)

And i have quite a few lip products that are half way. which reminds to look for my MAC Love Nectar - i can't find it and that's almost finished (sigh).

Yes we can!

  1. I'm trying to this but am finding myself to be very weak! I keep thinking of other things I want (and not necessarily always MAC!)...any more tips?

  3. I've done this a couple of times over the last few years (I think the original idea is from Makeupalley - at least that's where I first remember hearing about out).

    At any rate it's really tough to stick to it. I haven't been able to - I just started a new one this week - wish me luck.

  4. @bliss - Good luck. I am so tempted to start another one again but I am always discouraged by new collections :)

  7. I'm starting this too! It's hard to walk into anywhere and steer clear of the make-up, but I figure in the end, I can save enough to buy something I've really wanted, like a whole illamsqua line!

  25. Increase credit score and save money. Your credit score largely determines the lenders available and the interest rate at which they will lend. Fix credit and expand the number of lenders willing to compete for your loan.
