Project 10 Pan

I have a ridiculous amount of makeup and i am the first one to admit it! I have decided to do a project 10 pan, where i have to use up all the products.....or try to! I have given myself 30 days.......ok, maybe a bit more than 30 days, and incorporated these products into my makeup bag.

Why am i doing this you ask?! I find myself discovering new products all the time, so my older products tend to get forgotten about! I love that feeling of knowing i have used up a product......like i have accomplished something! Ha ha weird i know!

I have physically put these items into my everyday makeup bag, so i have no choice but to use them. On a daily basis, i wear very minimal makeup, however i am trying to incorporate some eyeshadows into the mix! I just find in the morning, i have about 10-15 minutes to get ready and eyeshadow takes the longest to put on!

What's in my project 10 pan? Ok, you're gonna see from the list that it's not quite 10 products, but i wanted some variety in my makeup bag!


  • Laura Mercier Primer
  • Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation
  • Wild About Beauty Sheer Glow Moisture Tint
  • MAC Studio Finish Concealer
  • MAC Mineralize Skin Finish


  • Bobbi Brown Blush (Apricot)
  • NARS Trio (Orgasm Blush, Laguna Bronzer, Albatross Highlighter)


  • MAC Eyeshadow Palette
  • MAC Smolder
  • Benefit They're Real Mascara


  • NARS Lipstick (Dolce Vita)
  • NARS Lipgloss (Easy Lover)
  • Revlon Lip Butter (Pink Truffle, Candy Apple)
  • Clinique Chubby Stick (Chunky Cherry)

Why have i chosen these products? A couple of them are my daily essentials, however i am wanting to finish them, so i can start using other products. Plus, i hate the fact that i just have make up sitting around and not being used!

I have only chosen make up items, as i find these are the hardest to finish, unlike toiletries and skincare. I would love for you guys to let me know if you are doing a project 5, 10, 20 pan! It would be great to know it's not just me doing it and if you are, please send me your links!

Have you done a project 10 pan? How did it go?

  1. I've been trying to use up some of my makeup products but I always seem to forget or decide not to use them, perhaps if I do a post about it I'l have more motivation! Definitely going to work on it


  2. This is a good idea im going to try it...

  3. I wish you the best of luck!!! However, I can tell you from my first attempt at project 10 pan you're not going to finish any of those in 30 days (unless they're far more used than they look in the pics). Makeup takes soooooooooo long to use up!! At least they'll be getting some extra love though! :)

  4. Such a great idea I really should do this! x

  5. Good luck with your 10 pan project. I am actually trying to use up some products I have too, but it's really hard... it took me all summer and haven't hit pan on most of them... it's easier to use up foundation and mascara but not so easy to hit pan on a blush or lipstick... at least for me!

  6. I tend to fail on any P10P that I do. I just like to buy new makeup! I need to commit to P10P soon because my collection is starting to look ridiculous! :)
