On to my post now...Ahhh! Yes, the infamous Project 10 Pan Program that many beauty addicts turn to as their rehab program! HA! Just in case you don't know what this program is, here is the general idea of the program: You can't make any makeup purchases until you've "Hit Pan" (completely used up at least 10 makeup products)!! I posted about this back in November of 2009. I started the program, and did have some success, but I kinda cheated a little, so this time I am taking it seriously. No shortcuts!!
So what prompted this? Well, I've been doing some cleaning and reorganizing the last couple of weeks and through the process, I've determined that I just have ridiculous amounts of makeup. It's a little embarrassing honestly. I have a good job and the bills are always paid; the kids and home are always taken care of, so I know that I should treat myself from time to time, but this is just too much! I finished reorganizing last night and thought, "Good God!! I have enough crap to last a few lifetimes and I'm not even a Makeup Artist (although I'd love to be)!" As a result, I am going into Makeup Rehab AKA Project 10 Pan!
I know this is going to be hard for me, but it HAS to be done. I should really be focusing on the items I have. I mean, how many more freakin' shades of purple (or any other color) eyeshadow can there possibly be out there!? I'm sure I already have them all! Geez!
So with that said, I have officially checked into rehab and will be keeping you all posted on the ups and downs! I know there are new collections, new products, etc., that will be coming up in the fall, but I have to remember that there will ALWAYS be new collections, products, etc.! If I miss something, chances are that same item will probably be re-released in a different package or perhaps something even better will be released at some point in time when I am released from Makeup Rehab!
Wish Me Luck!!
