Project 10 Pan | Why?


... I buy too much.  

This post is just what I bought locally in the past two month or so.  I have made various online purchases and those are posted separately.  Many of these purchases were tempted by great gift with purchases, or just an urge to moisturise, note the unhealthy number of tubes of hand creams.  I feel embarrassed to post all of these  out because many of these products are good but unnecessary.  How long will it take to go through these silly pile? Warning: inappropriately picture heavy post.

It is one of my new year resolutions to not buy too many, or any more.  I am happy to report that, since the beginning of 2013, I have not bought any make up product.  In my mind there's a plan, i.e. to limit myself to certain number of make up product only in the year of 2013.  It will be another post when I figure out all the details.

Basically, this also serves as a prologue to the project/competition that my friend Sam and I are going to kick off tomorrow, which will run in the month of February.  If you have any questions on the products I showed, feel free to leave a comment below.

Bioderma at Mannings was doing too good a deal to miss, so I stocked up.  I had a $20 off coupon off No.7 line to use, so I got a back-up of my favourite cleanser and try a pack of new wipes.  Wanted some new Revlon lip butters so badly so with the buy1get1, I picked up four.  Their gift with purchase surprises are great as well.  Been experimenting with hair more so I picked up some hair spray and dry shampoos, mainly for volume.  Estee Lauder makes great skin care, others say, so I bought some minis to test out.

Wanted a good black for doing Galaxy Nail Art (link to my post), so I went out and did some damage at Sasa.  Hand Cream xhore am I.  The MissCarol stuff is amazing; I bought extras to give to friends.  More Hair Spray, continuing my hair styling self-taught programme.  Bit my lips and purchased a tube of fragrance free eight hour cream, can't wait to try!

  • Paco Rabanne Lady Million Eau de Parfum ($10, 1.2ml)

  • Mary Kay Eye Crease Brush ($10)
  • Daiso Detergent for Women ($12, 80ml)
  • Daiso Detergent for Puff and Sponge ($12, 80ml)
Bought the perfume samples to try if they are good.  Lady Million is delicious but mature, not old-mature, but a bit too much for me.  Flowerbomb really lives up to its hype, yummy; the truth is true that it is literally the same as Zara's version (link to my post).  Collection 2000 was doing buy2get1, and free lipgloss with purchase.  Laura Mercier is a dream come true, I wish I can afford the full size ones!  Daiso detergents are necessary repurchases.
