First Day of Fall Temptations

Today is the first day of fall, and with the changing season comes changing trends. I'm already being tempted to purchase a few items to get ready for the season. This is really silly considering I already have a lot of items that already fit the looks but alas, that doesn't seem to have the same affect as something NEW.

Here are a few items that I am currently lusting over:

Too FacedEverything Nice Set- $68 

Kat Von D
Monarch Eyeshadow Palette- $58

TartePin Up Girl Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Palette- $50

Kat Von DStudded Kiss Lipstick- $26

Back from Hiatus! Re-Starting Project 10 Pan

It's been quite some time since I've updated this blog but I've returned to start decluttering my stash one again. I went back into a rut while I was experiencing some family problems, health issues, and absolutely dreading going to work. I took my frustrations out on my credit card by purchasing cosmetics.

My Project Pan this time around will be a Project 10 Pan, and will include the following:

  1. Clarins- Water Comfort One-Step Cleanser with Peach Essential Water
  2. Dr. Brandt- Pores No More Primer
  3. Maybelline- Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Concealer in Fair 110
  4. MAC- MatchMaster foundation in 1.0
  5. Physician's Formula- Multi-Coloured Corrector in Green
  6. MAC- Blush in Tenderling
  7. L'Oreal- Wear Infinite Studio Secrets  Professional Eyeshadow in 801 Sandy Shores
  8. L'Oreal- HIP Studio Secrets Professional Intense Eyeliner in 320 Dark Sky
  9. Bath RetreatVanilla Body Wash
  10. Victoria's Secret- Vanilla Body Lotion

My rules include not being able to purchase any items during my project pan unless I am completely out of that type of item. For example, if I finish my Victoria's Secret Vanilla Body Lotion, I will only purchase a new body lotion if I do not have any back-ups in my stash.

I do have a pre-planned cheat... I received a ticket to the L'Oreal Fall Warehouse Sale and will definitely be purchasing some products there. They always have great prices on sunscreen and as a super fair individual who requires daily sunscreen, I don't think I should pass this chance up. I will post everything I purchase. I'm going to put myself on a very specific budget, probably around $100. What do you think would be reasonable? 

I will do my best to post weekly updates on any progress I've made with these items and do a monthly "empties" post that will include items outside of this list.

Wish me luck and help me avoid temptation!
