Project 10 Pan Challenge! Start (2016) – All Makeup

project 10 pan

Hello lovely internet friends. I’ve finally bit the hypothetical lipstick-bullet and have decided to start a Project 10 Pan Challenge, to hopefully complete by the end of 2016. If you’ve been reading this blog for a long time, you’ll know that I did a Project 10 Pan back last year. You’ll also know that I failed but kinda adjusted things so it seemed I succeeded (confused? check out the finale post here).

This time round, I’m a bit more dedicated to the cause (hopefully this isn’t like what every student does at the start of the semester, to only end up being behind by week 3!). I’ve picked all makeup products and have a mix of products I like and dislike.



  • Focus on using up the chosen products by the end of 2016
  • Makeup no buy (unless run out of crucial item)
  • Skincare, body care, nail care and haircare low buy (because I have a ridiculous amount of unopened skin/body/nails/hair care stuff in my cupboard, like most beauty junkies!)
  • Post updates to Youtube every couple months


Have you ever done a Project 10 Pan challenge like this before? I’d love if you joined me! Comment below if you are doing any kind of challenge like this and I’ll send some genuine and understanding support your way.

    Good luck hun!! haha like you I’ve never been able to finish my Project 10 pan!! That amount of products would take me years to finish lol. I’ve been using double the dosage more foundation and a heavier hand on powder products. Your bunnies are soooooo adorable!!

    I love this post and project! I have never heard of a pan challenge before but you are definitely inspiring me to do something like this because I have SO much makeup in my collection that I start and don’t finish and this would be a good motivator to use them up! I love your honesty with the products too, while you may not be a big fan you’re still willing to use them and give them a final go. I can’t wait to follow your 2016 journey, you can do it girl!

    And can we just talk about your cute little bunnies!! I was a bunny parent (I am now a kitty parent and I don’t think the two would play well haha) but I love them so so much x

      Thanks so much Marisa! I appreciate the encouragement! Love my bunnies, they’re so cute. Nice to meet someone who also knows how to appreciate bunnies. I have heard of bunnies being friends with dogs, but not cats. Though, bunnies act surprisingly similar to cats, so maybe they’d be friends!

    Good luck!! I really should start one of these, I have so much stuff but I wouldn’t be able to give up buying new products hehe

    Good Luck with it! It’s a really sensible thing to do, which I probably why I never do Project Pans, lol. Hope you’re successful this time!
