Project 10 Pan Update 2: I finished P10P!

I honestly find it hard to believe that one week after I decide to stop Project 10 pan, I complete it. The irony. Anyway, as I haven't used any of the new things I bought yet (haul coming soon), I decided that it would be ok to consider this project 10 pan completed. To be fair, I had most of these items as almost finished/ finished when I decided to give up, and it was only when I was updating the list of items I had finished on the P10P page I realised I had reached 10. So yay! 

1st up is this EOS lip balm in Mint. I got this a year ago in New York and I really enjoyed it. I have read that this isn't the most moisturising and some people say it actually dries your lips out, but I didn't have that problem at all. I would (and have) repurchase.

I only realised that this photo does not show that it is finished. I honestly did finish it! This red lipstick is the Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick in Red Porcelain and I did not really like it. It had a glossy-ish finish and was quite slippy on the lips, but I was just uncomfortable with the colour to be honest. I felt very out of place while wearing it and I could feel the lipstick on, which I personally do not like. However, wearing a red around the house and when I'm going out did make me feel more bold about wearing colours on my lips, so that is a good thing. Personally, I would not repurchase this.

Believe it or not, this is the first eyeshadow I hit pan on and it is a big one. I depotted this MUA Matt individual eyeshadow in Shade 20 which was a matt black to put into my Uni palette for this project and it did help me finish it up. I used this mixed with my Barry M Matt bronzing Powder for my brows and I used this for anything I needed a matt black for. I used it for smokey eyes and eyeliner as well and I would repurchase this if I ever wanted a matt black again (unlikely).

Disclaimer: I think this dried up as opposed to being used up as I doubt I used it enough to actually finish a mascara. Also, how do you know if a mascara is used up or dried up? Anyway, it's the first time I've used a mascara until it can't be used anymore, so I'm counting it. I did not really like this mascara and would not repurchase.

This had a little bit left after I was done with the colour club one I posted about last time so it isn't a surprise that I finished this. I have already repurchased a new Seche Vite top coat as it is my favourite for a shiny, fast drying top coat. It really makes my nails dry faster and it makes them really glossy and pretty, so I'm happy with it. I know that it has toulene in it, but I make sure to have my window open when I'm painting my nails, and nothing else I've tried is as good as this top coat.

This empty pot was the 17 Phwoarr paint in Medium. I did clean the pan up a bit before taking the photo but it was pretty much like this already. I used this under my eyes, but I didn't really get along with it that well. I would not repurchase.

So that's the end of this update and the end of Project 10 pan!

  1. I rarely hit pan with my cosmetics, but I'm on a new budget that will require me to start hitting pan and stop buying new products! I'll be right there with your 10 soon!
