Me getting rid of my makeup? Please! This will only happen when sun and earth collide.
To be honest, I still don’t have an exorbitant amount of lipsticks like other beauty bloggers out there but I’m starting to feel that I have more makeup than I need. So I thought: how to use up makeup without getting rid of it? Project 10 Pan was the key to all of my questions. Have you ever heard of it before?
Project 10 Pan is … a project. I believe you all got that already, haha! It has been on the net for quite some time now… Here’s how it works:
- Choose 10 products.
- Hit pan or finish up all of the products.
- You are not allowed to buy any products until you have accomplished rule #2.
Now, because I’ve always been a bad player and a very good cheater when it comes to games, I chose a product that I’ve already hit pan on. So I’ll have to finish up this one completely. And, I kind of adjusted rule #2 by reducing the number of product to two. Well, this is how you satisfy a materialistic/shopaholic’s needs (moi!).
My goal isn’t to get rid of my “clutter”, as my mum would call it. Hell no. My goal is to finish up these babies to be able to buy new products and test new stuff. I guess this project “purifies” my makeup collection. Plus, it’s a great way to control your money and save up for the good stuff on the market. And most importantly, it reminds you how grateful you should be for having all of the makeup you own and being able to afford it (that last bit was kind of a cliché, wasn’t it?).
I picked my products to form a “daily routine”. Of course, these aren’t the only products I use in that routine:
- Stay Matte by Rimmel
- Maybelline’s falsies drama mascara
- MAC’s tendertone in hush hush
- MAC’s fluidline in Blacktrack
- Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer
- Urban Decay Primer Potion
- MAC lipstick in Plumful
- MAC studio finish concealer
- Benefit’s Dandelion blush
- Pinch O’ Peach blush by MAC
Again, I didn’t choose these products because I don’t like them. Au contraire mon ami! I have a few favorites in this list. I’m doing Project 10 Pan to renew few products, it doesn’t matter wether I love them or not.
