Project 10 Pan - Update #2

I know it's been a while since I've update but I've made some great progress since my last post.

I've really been neglecting my hand and body cream so I've decided to start keeping it beside my bed so that I hopefully remember to use it. As for the shower gel, I've made considerable progress considering I only pour a few drops on my loofa before using it. At my last update, the body wash was at the first "L" and now it's at the "V".

The next few items I've been working on and going strong. You can definitely see the progress. My eyeliner is considerably shorter, and you can definitely see a lot more pan on the beige eyeshadow. I've been bending out the air from the face primer, and I've got just under a third left. I will be so happy when it's done. Finally, I'm still working on this god forsaken green face powder. As you can tell, I've definitely been using it, but I'm debating just tossing it. What do you think? It leaves a green cast that I then need to cover with a regular powder.

And now for the most exciting part....drum roll please...

Here are the items I've finished!

I'm happy to see that I'm actually making some progress with these items and with any luck, I should be done by the end of the year.

Ideal Make-Up Collection Size

I'm on a mission to decrease the size of my collection and get rid of products I'm not thrilled with (and trying to be a tad more minimalist). In my last post, "What's In My Stash? Part 1: Make-Up Collection", I counted every product I currently have in my make-up collection. Needless to say, I won't be running out of anything soon. As you can see from the data below, there are some areas that I'm fairly happy with, and others that need a lot of work. 

What's your ideal make-up collection size?

Project 10 Pan - Update #1

In case you missed it, I've started another project pan. I haven't finished anything yet but I've made some pretty decent progress. Here is my first post so you can see how far I've come in a few weeks.

So I haven't made a ton of progress on my lotion or body wash but you can definitely see that I've been using them. A little bit goes a long way.

I'm sooo close to finishing this concealer it's killing me. Everyday I'm wondering "Will today be the day?". Well... not yet.

 I'm ALMOST done both of these! This cleanser and foundation should be done within the next couple of weeks for sure!

 It's impossible to tell how far I've come with this primer. The container is completely opaque and (I'm hoping) has a ton of air in it. I've been using it for a while now and the pumping is still working like new so I guess I've still got a while to go.

 These products are going to be the death of me. My MAC blush is seeing some pretty decent progress and should be done within the next month. The green powder has been the bane of my existence. I'm obviously exaggerating but it's been really hard to use since is leaves a slight green cast. Regardless, you can definitely see some more pan there.  You can definitely see some more pan on my beige eye shadow but this is probably going to take me the longest to use up. The eyeliner is quite a bit smaller than last time as it's been sharpened a few times.
