Project Focus 10: The Final Chapter

This is the final summary post of the Project Focus 10 collaboration! Firstly, I want to thank the awesome collab crew of Ingrid, Joy and Jodi! It has been so much fun doing this project with you! πŸ˜€

So, how did I do in the Project Focus? If I was to grade myself in terms of sticking to using the items I chose, I’d give myself a B. It’s a solid grade but it isn’t going to get me on the Honour Roll. πŸ˜› Unlike some of my collab buddies, I did not finish any of the 10 items up during this project, but I intend to continue working on them! Here’s a recap and current state of things.

Week 1: Guerlain Lingerie De Peau BB (Stash worthiness:Β 7/10)
focus10_guerlain_bb_3
I’m still using this dutifully – maybe about twice a week. I’m determined to use this up before I need to toss it!
Likelihood of finishing this: 80%

Week 2: Nars Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder (Stash worthiness:Β 8/10)
focus10_nars_powder_5
Lately I’ve been using this all over my face instead of just under my eye area – it’s fantastic for setting my foundation without adding too much of a “powdered” look. I’m liking this more now than when I first started using it.
Likelihood of finishing this: 100%

Week 3: Shu Uemura brow:sword (Stash worthiness: 7/10)
focus10_shu_uemura_brow_11
I’ve already decided this is coming with me to Japan. It’s such a handy little travel companion with the spoolie and sharpener both built-in.
Likelihood of finishing this: 90%

Week 4: Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream (Stash worthiness: 9/10)
focus10_kiehls_ultra_cream_5
I love this face cream and I’m attempting to use it up for April’s Trash Stash!
Likelihood of finishing this: 100%

Week 5: Orly Nailtrition (Stash worthiness: 9/10)
focus10_orly_nailtrition_5
Still using this on a weekly basis and plan onΒ finishing it up entirelyΒ – might take a while though, I’m thinking by late Fall.
Likelihood of finishing this: 100%

Week 6: Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water (Stash worthiness: 3/10)
focus10_smashbox_water_9
Ugh, this is neglected. On purpose. I may mix some rosewater and glycerin in this to help it be less sucky. Β But I do want to attempt to use it up.
Likelihood of finishing this: 75%

Week 7: Clinique Pop Lip Colour in Bare Pop (Stash worthiness: 8/10)
focus10_clinique_lip_pop_7
I have every intention of using this on a regular basis but absolutely NO promise that I’ll finish this tube up before it goes bad. I think I’ve only ever used up 2 lipsticks in my life.
Likelihood of finishing this:Β 25%

Week 8: L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara (Stash worthiness: 8/10)
focus10_loreal_butterfly_6
I’ll cheat and call this one almost finished. It’s gotten too flaky lately and I’ll be retiring it soon.
Likelihood of finishing this: 100%

Week 9: Muji Cut Cotton Ecru (Stash worthiness: 7/10)
focus10_muji_cotton_5
This had the distinction of being my most used Project Focus 10 item – I’m still using this nightly and intend to finish the bag. I’ll be trying the white version of this next to see how it compares to the Shiseido.
Likelihood of finishing this: 100%

Week 10: Smashbox Double Exposure Palette (Stash worthiness: 6/10)
focus10_smashbox_double_exposure_18
Although the quality of these eye shadows are decent, I was quite disappointed by the lame colour changing claims of this palette. I really have to force myself to reach for this palette – I’m unsure if I will keep this of give it away.
Likelihood of finishing this: 0%

And that’s it for Project Focus 10, early 2016 edition – thanks for joining us on this fun project! πŸ˜€

  1. Congrats on finishing Project Focus 10! Although I guess there were a few so-so products, it’s great that out of the 10 items, only the Smashbox primer water was a real dud.
    Looking forward to possibly seeing you do this again in the fall!

    1. Yes, overall all the items were pretty good and I discovered new favourites. I’m thinking next time I will focus only on makeup and dig out OLD stuff. Hey, maybe you should join in on our next collab! It would be fun! πŸ˜€
