Project 10 Pan Update / January Empties

Finished up in January:

01: Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Seasilk Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner (travel sized)
02: L’Oreal Preference High Shine Colour Conditioner
03: Lancome Hypnose Mascara
04: NARS Sheer Matte Foundation in Siberia / Givenchy Photo Perfexion Foundation in Perfect Ivory

I put the two foundations together and counted them as one product because neither of the bottles had a lot of product remaining in them, and I felt guilty counting them separately. I’ve not been 100% dedicated to the cause this month either, and I sneakily bought myself a bottle of Kosmea Rosehip Oil, Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel and MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Porcelain Pink from Jess’ Blog Sale. Now watch me justify… I had completely run out of the Kosmea Rosehip Oil, and as it is one of my HG products, I needed it back in my routine asap. The cleanser was purchased because I will run out of the current cleanser that I’m using in a week or so and don’t want to have to wait for my new cleanser to be shipped here – pre-emptive strike. And as for the MAC… Well no money was exchanged as Jess also wanted some things from my blog sale, so really it’s a swap and not a purchase and therefore doesn’t count! Hooray! Bring on February.

Project 10 Pan

As one of my beauty resolutions for 2011 is to partake in Project 10 Pan at the beginning and end of the year (and I’ve also noticed that I have spent way too much money on cosmetics lately), I think it’s a great idea to start my Project 10 Pan asap. My Project 10 Pans are slightly different to most, as I opt to finish up a collective 10 products from various categories, rather than 10 makeup, 10 skin care etc. This works out better for me, and it usually takes 2 or 3 months for me to finish up the products, which is a decent amount of time (in my eyes at least) to not be spending money on cosmetics. I also find that after the 3 months or so I no longer have the urge to spend frivolously on products that I don’t necessarily want or need. But we’ll see how long that feeling lasts… I am aiming to spend less in 2011 on things I don’t need, and this seems like a good way to start to me. So here we go, Project 10 Pan starts now!
