A Project 10 Pan of sorts ...

Thursday, 1 September 2011

My beauty collection has grown and grown other the last 6 months or so and with another ELF order hitting my doormat this afternoon i have decided it is high time i had a bit of a clear-out and try and use up a whole bunch of items before Christmas.
So i here-by declare a 'Project 10 Pan' (...of sorts)!

I have selected 10 make-up items, 5 haircare items and 5 skincare/Soap & Glory items that i think i should use up. Let us begin ...


I have 10 a zillion mascaras in my collection and have recently purchased 2 waterproof types for my upcoming hols, what is wrong with me!? lol.

I have included not 1, not 2, but THREE mascaras in my little Project 10 Pan that i can wear for 'everyday' looks. We have; 17's Va Va Voom, Collection 2000's Volume Sensations and Maybelline's Falsies Volume Express mascaras. I have mentioned 17's Va Va Voom many times on my blog and teamed with Maybelline's staple Great Lash it has been my *holy grail* lash combo but the time has come to experiment more and i often find myself wondering what my lashes are missing out on, ha. I have included the other two simple because they need to be used up as i hate wasting products.

I've also chucked in two bronzers - my *HG* Elf Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder and a cheap and not-so-cheerful George @ Asda bronzer. You may have heard me mention a few hundred times that i go on holiday soon so I'm hoping these will get used up while I'm away. You'll see that both have hit pan so it shouldn't be too difficult :)

Two eyeshadows - both are neutral in colour and neither are used as actual eyeshadows, ha! The light brown shade by Natural Collection is used to fill in my brows - i have neglected this product a lot recently in favour of a new product (look out for that later this month). The 17 Ivory Coast eyeshadow is used under my lower lashline to stop my eyeliner from smudging, for some reason my eyeliner just will not stay put but this helps a lot (i think I've repurchased this same eyeshadow about 3 times now!)

Now onto the lip products. I have chosen Carmex lip balm in the squirty tube, i used to carry this balm around with me and top up quite regularly throughout the day but poor ol' Carmex has been put on the back burner since i discovered Burt Bee's lip balm. Time to rediscover a beauty staple!

I have also picked my gorgeous ELF Luscious Liquid Lipstick which i wear everyday! I really want to use this up (as you can see it's 3/4 empty) so i can try some of the other shades available :) I have also thrown in Clinique's Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss in Currant which was a free sample, i love the colour but unfortunately this product is far too sticky for my liking :(


Two Aussie products on the table here. I took full advantage of Boot's recent 3 for £10 offer and bought 6 bottles of Aussie! I have no whittled it down to 4 (two remain unopened) so I've included Miracle Moist shampoo (my fave Aussie product!) and Aussome Volume shampoo. I'm desperate to get the John Frieda Go Blonder shampoo/conditioner so cant wait to use these up!

We also have two John Frieda products - Sheer Blonde Enhancing conditioner and Go Blonder Lightening Spray. I love John Frieda products and have been using them for over 6 years! Asda currently have a 3 for £10 offer on so want to take advantage of that!

Lastly we have Mark Hill's Blonde Diamond Shine Spray. This product was in a giftset i got from my sis at Christmas - need to use it up quick before i get a whole bunch more beauty products this festive season ;)

Skincare/Soap & Glory:

Every Christmas my mum or sister buy me lots of Soap & Glory products and this is what i got last year - like i said above i really need to get a move on and use these up before i get a whole lot more :)

I've included; Scrub Your Nose In It, Clean, Girls body wash, Scrub 'Em and Leave 'Em, two Mist You Madly body sprays (the mini one is a permanent fixture in my handbag!).

I'll update you on a monthly basis - seeing as it's the 1st of the month it'll probably be nice to continue with the beginning of the month theme :)

Feel free to join in with me and do your own Project 10 Pan - let me know if you do I'd love to have a buddy and see how you get on :)




  1. I'm doing project 10 pan too. Brace yourself.... it gets difficult at times! super jealous of all of your soap and glory bits! good luck! xo

  2. awesome :) i don't have a set number of products so i just go and use up whatever i have.. :)

  3. This is great, i think selecting the items you want to use up will make it easier.
    I was on a makeup ban through Aug and now im going to carry it through Sept to try and rediscover old faves, also doing a 'project bathroom' so i use up the numerous products that are taking over my bathroom withouth purchasing anymore!

  4. I love soap and glory, swear by their scrubs, maybeline falsies is so good!

  5. I've got so many things half used, I really need to do something like this instead of dipping into different products every day. Can you tell me the colours of the 2 eyeshadows you mentioned? would like to try them out, especially the one you mention stops your eyeliner smudging as this is a big problem for me. Do you apply it before or after your eyeliner? I'm a new follower so sorry if you've blogged about these products before x

  6. The eyeshadows are: Natural Collection Duo Eyeshadow in 'Mink/Sable' and 17's Ivory Coast. I apply it after ive put on my eyeliner.
