Back from Hiatus! Re-Starting Project 10 Pan

It's been quite some time since I've updated this blog but I've returned to start decluttering my stash one again. I went back into a rut while I was experiencing some family problems, health issues, and absolutely dreading going to work. I took my frustrations out on my credit card by purchasing cosmetics.

My Project Pan this time around will be a Project 10 Pan, and will include the following:

  1. Clarins- Water Comfort One-Step Cleanser with Peach Essential Water
  2. Dr. Brandt- Pores No More Primer
  3. Maybelline- Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Concealer in Fair 110
  4. MAC- MatchMaster foundation in 1.0
  5. Physician's Formula- Multi-Coloured Corrector in Green
  6. MAC- Blush in Tenderling
  7. L'Oreal- Wear Infinite Studio Secrets  Professional Eyeshadow in 801 Sandy Shores
  8. L'Oreal- HIP Studio Secrets Professional Intense Eyeliner in 320 Dark Sky
  9. Bath RetreatVanilla Body Wash
  10. Victoria's Secret- Vanilla Body Lotion

My rules include not being able to purchase any items during my project pan unless I am completely out of that type of item. For example, if I finish my Victoria's Secret Vanilla Body Lotion, I will only purchase a new body lotion if I do not have any back-ups in my stash.

I do have a pre-planned cheat... I received a ticket to the L'Oreal Fall Warehouse Sale and will definitely be purchasing some products there. They always have great prices on sunscreen and as a super fair individual who requires daily sunscreen, I don't think I should pass this chance up. I will post everything I purchase. I'm going to put myself on a very specific budget, probably around $100. What do you think would be reasonable? 

I will do my best to post weekly updates on any progress I've made with these items and do a monthly "empties" post that will include items outside of this list.

Wish me luck and help me avoid temptation!

7 Deadly Sins of Beauty Tag

This beauty tag has been going on for a while now on both YouTube as well as on blogs. I figured in the spirit of my project pan I would do this tag just to see exactly what I've spent money on. I will give multiple answers for some.

1.     Greed. What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?

My most inexpensive beauty products are: Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Make-up Remover, Vanilla Body Wash, Face Wipes, Eye Wipes, and Revlon Lipstick.

My most expensive beauty products are probably perfumes with my Chanel Chance Eau Tendre being the most expensive (I think). In terms of skincare my Clarins Extra-Firming Eye Contour Serum. My most expensive make-up product was my Dior Capture Totale foundation.

2.     Wrath. What beauty products do you have a love/ hate relationship with? What product has been the hardest to get?

The products I have a love/ hate relationship with are the Neostrata Toning Solution Level 2 (great for during breakouts, too drying any other time), Clarins Foaming Cleanser with Cottonseed (takes long to wash off but gets everything off).

The product that was the hardest to get was the Clarins eye shadow single in Desert Blonde because it was discontinued. It is a fabulous pinky nude colour perfect for under my brows.

3.     Gluttony. What is your most delicious beauty product?

My most delicious beauty products are: Urban Decay Marshmellow body powder, Clarins Gloss Prodige.

4.     Sloth. What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?

I often neglect to use my face mask/ oil twice a week, and to using a setting spray for my make-up. I also need to make time to apply my body products out of the shower.

5.     Pride. What beauty product gives you the most self-confidence?

The beauty product that gives me the most self-confidence I’d have to say is bright lipstick. I always feel extra sassy with a colour like Pink Vibrations from Elizabeth Arden on. In terms of what would I not leave the house without my answer would be concealer.

6.     Lust. What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex? Since this is not beauty related I will come up with something different…What beauty product do you believe is the most attractive (i.e. colour, packaging, etc.)?

Lancome Limited Edition Blush, Anna Sui Nail Polish, Shu Uemura eye shadow quad, Clarins Enchanted Eye Shadow Quad, Mac Wonderwoman quad, Physician's Formula Happy Booster.

7.     Envy. What items would you most like to receive as a gift?

Most people choose perfume here but I’d prefer to receive a body product or some limited edition make-up.

Now I tag you! What are your 7 Deadly Sins of Beauty?
