Update on Project 10 Pan

So, I just wanted to update you all on project 10 pan. As we know, I decided to include ALL beauty products in my project since I have an excess amount of things that are half finished. I have to admit that I cheated a little bit. :/ My best friend and I bought a couple of nail polishes the other day that were gorgeous and only 99cents each. I couldn't pass them up! Not only that, but I ran into an entire rack of NYX lip and eye pencils that were only a $1.00! What's a girl to do right? lol! No one said this was going to be easy, but I am not going to let myself slip again. I think I'm doing pretty well considering this is my first time approaching project 10 pan.

Anyways, I've completely finished 4 products so far and I am almost done with 2 more. This is taking a lot more time than I actually thought it would. Haha! My April Favorites video might not be so fun since i haven't really allowed myself to buy anything, but the items I talked about above. Since I'm re-shopping my own belongings it will have stuff that I forgot about and bought because I liked it in the first place. :)

So, for those of you who have joined me on P10P....Good Luck and keep on doing what you're doing to keep yourself away from the make-up counters!

Helpful tips for P10P

Hey Everyone! So, I thought I'd share some helpful tips for Project 10 Pan. I know that for all of us beauty junkies it's super hard to stick to finishing ten beauty products in its entirety. So, I thought of some helpful ways to get us all past this project a little faster and easier. Today I went through ALL of my make-up and beauty products. I don't know about you guys, but I can have certain eyeshadows, face moisturizers, face washes etc and will be half way done or 3/4 of the way done when I go out and buy a new one. From that point on the "almost" finished item remains in a make-up case or on the shelf adding clutter to our collections. With that in mind, I went through my items and pulled out all the products that were either almost finished, I had already hit pan on, or were about to expire. I'm putting these in a separate cosmetics bag and when I do my make-up I will try my best to pull these items out first and see if I can use any of these items to incorporate into the look I'm going for. This way...I can get rid of the clutter and finish Round 1 of P10P pretty quickly. Now...In my project I am not only including cosmetics, but I am also including face washes, eye make-up removers, toners, hair products, body creams, or anything else I have excess amounts of. I have also made a rule for myself as well. I have seen and heard of a lot of make-up gurus finishing P10P successfully and then going out that very evening to purchase a whole load of cosmetics! I am going to wait at least a week AFTER I have completed the project to allow myself to purchase any beauty items. This will curb that impulse buying rage. lol! Anyways...Wish me luck and I wish all of you who are joining me luck as well!
