Project 10 Pan was created by lollipop26 on YouTube as a way for her to purposefully use up 10 items in her collection that are near to being used up, before buying any more makeup. Since I am on a No Buy until the end of November, and am trying to go cruelty-free, I think this is the perfect opportunity to do just this.
I’ll start with 10 items from companies that test on animals. I’m quite happy as I had a bit of trouble finding these items in my collection, as a lot of them are cruelty-free. 🙂
Also, I’m concentrating on the items that have been in my collection for a long time as opposed to items that I’ve nearly used up. I was thinking of adding the Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Plum in here, but I am rationing it, as I will not be repurchasing it until Revlon revises its animal testing policy.
Anyway, here are the items I’ve picked out:
L’Oreal Lucent Magique Liquid Foundation (G5 Gold Shell) — This is an awesome foundation and it’s currently my shade match as opposed to my other shade, N5, which has been way too light this summer. It’s great but it’s not CF, so I want to use it up.
Benefit Watt’s Up! — one of my favorite highlighters, but I have a lot of other CF products that work well, too. Watt’s Up! has a cream-to-powder formula that is just pretty amazing, and lends a pretty natural glow. I won’t be repurchasing this until Benefit goes cruelty-free.
Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer — WHY DON’T YOU JUST VANISH ALREADY? I’ve had you for so long! If you remember, this is the eye primer that I depotted a few months ago.
Benefit Lemon Aid — I used to use this a lot, but I found better primers and the color is a bit too yellow as a base. I’m just trying my best to use this up.
Maybelline The Falsies Mascara — It’s alright. Not really HG material, and I want to use up all of my mascaras that I’ve opened. This is the oldest one I have that’s not CF.
Revlon ColorBurst Mineral Blush (Roseberry) — I love this shade, but it’s not CF and it’s great for everyday wear, especially now in the summer time because there’s a little bit of sheen to it already.
Smashbox Whipped Blush (Dusty Rose) — Thought they were CF but apparently, they’ve changed their animal testing policy to “except when required by law,” so that sucks. This is a unique whipped mousse-y formula.
Revlon Matte Lipstick (Fabulous Fig) — I should just use this up because I’ve had it for forever.
Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick (Chestnut) — Same as above. I don’t think they even sell this color anymore.
Revlon Lip Gloss (Brilliant Bordeaux) — Whittling down my lip gloss collection (not that I have a lot). This is the most like my Buxom lip gloss in Berry Blast.
Here are swatches of the products I’m hoping I’ll be able to use up:
