No Buy July!

Having gone through my makeup collection extensively the past week, I've decided to go on a 'No Buy July' challenge (which includes not buying necessities such as makeup remover and brush cleansers, since I have loads of deluxe samples to go through.) As an avid supporter of both Sephora stores and Sephora.com, this might be difficult, but I'm still determined :smileyhappy:.

 

My goal is to make it through the entire month of July without any purchases, and if possible, until my birthday in August.

 

If any of you beautyholics are also planning on a No Buy July, please comment below (and help each other through the next month-ish! :smileyvery-happy:)

I was looking at Best Things In Beauty blog and the roundup for this year's Nordstrom Anniversary sale... and nothing really stood out. Shocking, considering I went overboard last year! haha. What are you planning on getting at the Anniversary sale?

I think I might join in on this... but maybe allow myself to buy 5 things? I mean just depriving myself... I don't think I can do that!! But definitely no skin care or body stuff for me!!! I can't even fit it all in my medicine cabinet anymore, its piling underneath the sink and now its spilling out into my room just literally sitting in bags no more!

We all have our own weaknesses, lol. Palettes and eyeshadows are mine!

I think as long as you set some parameters for youself and stay within those parameters, then you are looking good.  I think the whole idea is to set a goal.  Everyone's goal may be a little different.  For one person it may be a no-buy from sephora, for someone else it may be a no-buy from anywhere.  And eveyone sets a goal for different reasons.  So I say, go for it!

I'll be counting on you for a review of the palette! :smileyhappy: I can't pull off the blues on a day to day basis but it sure looks GORGEOUS!

Good luck ladies.  I'm not strong enough to complete this challenge.  My birthday is this month so I think a no-buy will be impossible.  Does using a gift card count?  Ha.

Re: No Buy July!

Using a gift card definitely doesn't count, it's not "your" money, it's a gift in monetary form!  It's not like you can go buy groceries with it instead.

Happy birthday to you! A no buy birthday month will definitely be difficult for just about anyone, lol.

Ah I did too. MAC and target were my weaknesses today. This is going to be tough but I need to do this!

Oooh was it from the Tropical Taboo collection?

Re: No Buy July!

Surprisingly no! I'm very new to MAC products so this past week I got some of the staples that everyone seems to love:
    Paint pot in Painterly
    Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle
    Pro longwear concealer
    Lipstick in Creme Cup
    Travel size of Fix+

I tried to get things that I know I would use (almost) every day! Those new displays are very tempting though...

Re: No Buy July!

Not enabling any purchases from MAC or anything, but Satin Taupe is a must in your collection, I think :smileyhappy:

Maybe an August purchase! Haha if you have any other MAC recommendations let me know... I'm a newbie!
