Makeup overload!

Happy weekend chickas!  I hope you’re enjoying your Saturday.  As for me, I’m sitting here in a very warm, very rare, San Francisco day, trying to sort through all of my makeup.  I’ve realized lately, that I’m completely obsessed, and while I love it – I have too much.  In fact, I have more makeup than a Sephora on a bad day.  I have so much, that I can’t possibly use it all in my lifetime.

So, as I’ve been going through my makeup and trying to clean up a bit, I’ve decided to embark on a Project 10 Pan.  This is also known as Project Tin Pan.  What you do is select a number (in this case 10) of products that you waant to try to use up.  During the time, you aren’t supposed to use any other products in that category until you’re 10 are used up or “hit pan”.  I’ve changed that a bit, so I have 2 foundations, 2 primers, and some other bits.  So here goes.

My project 10 pan will consist of:

  • Stila One Step Makeup in Tone.  This really is a lot more like a BB cream than a foundation, since it’s primer, foundation, concealer and powder.  I got this on a Stila sale for $5, and I really like it.  It turns out it’s normally $20, so even if I use it up – I would love another, but I’ll wait for a sale.
  • Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream – this is my favorite of the BB creams I’ve tried (except Cho Yo Bang that I love but has parabens).  I’ve been using this almost every day, and love the light to medium coverage with a bit of powder over it.
  • Too Faced Primed & Poreless – this is hands down my favorite primer for mineral makeup.  In fact, it’s my favorite primer period.  But since I have a dozen primers, I need to use it up.
  • BE Neutralizing primer – I’ve used this a couple of times, and really like how it hides the redness and evens out my skin tone.
  • Tarte Gifted Mascara – I like this one quite a bit, but I have others I like more, so time to use it up!
  • Mally Liquid Face Defender Blush in Lighter – it’s a really pretty rose glow.  I have 2 drawers of blushes (eek!) so again, I need to use this up.
  • Tarte Deep Bronze Amazonian Clay eyeliner – I love this product, but I have 40 eyeliners.  How can ONE girl have 40 eyeliners?  This is a gorgeous deep bronze that really brings out the blue in my eyes.
  • IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye in Medium – my go to concealer right now.  LOVE this product!
  • NARS Smudeproof Eyebase – this is not my favorite eye primer but it works and I like the white color because it opens up my eyes.


Stay tuned for reviews and…a big huge giant blog blowout sale!

    I am dying to try the amazonian clay foundation. Is there anywhere I can get a sample of this? I don’t want to invest in a full priced/size since I also have tons, but not many foundations I am madly in love with except Youngblood Cosmetics foundation, blush and setting powder! Have you tried this product? If so, what are your thoughts on it?
