I have no money at the moment thanks to entirely miscalulating things before Christmas. As a result I am on a no spend because I literally have no money to spend. But that sounds boring, doesn't it? It's one thing not to buy pretty things for myself before Christmas because I'm spending money on other people but this is just dullsville.
So I'm turning it into a challenge as I think it will distract me from the boredom of not being able to shop. Well that's my theory anyway and it's worth a try given that either way, I have no money to spend.
I've had a dig around and found 16 products that are nearly there.
Bobbi Brown Shimmerbrick Sandstone
Benefit Powder Pop (it's the Hoola from this that I want to use up)
Benefit High Beam
Sheer Cover Primer
Benefit lipglosses in Who Are You Wearing? and Didn't Hear It From Me
Benefit lipstick in Swoonderful
17 Mirror Shine lipstick in Beehive
The Body Shop lipbalm
Travel sized UDPP
Miniature Lancome Hypnose Drama mascara
Minature Exceptionnel de Chanel mascara
Urban Decay eye liner in Zero
Some brown Clinique eye liner
Sample of Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation
So although some of the products are minis or travel sizes, there are still 10 full sized ones, plus a foundation that I forgot is on its way out. Hopefully it'll take me a month or so to get through 10 of these and by that time I will be able to go and buy something from my wishlist!
I may not have the biggest makeup collection but I think this is overdue. I seriously can't remember the last time I finished an item of makeup other than foundation or mascara. I hoard them and then have a clear out but using something until it runs out? That's pretty rare. This little clear out will also free up some space for when I have my finances back in order, whenever that might be, so everyone's a winner!
Have you done a Project 10 Pan before? How did you get on? And are you suffering through a no spend at the moment?
