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:)

Retail therapy soothes the soul :smileyhappy:

There must be something about car dealerships and stress that calls for some retail/beauty therapy. Right after I left the dealership with my car is when I bought the perfume I talked about a few days ago. I avoided makeup but still needed a pick-me-up!

I missed Ariel... oops.

 

I have the other 2 mirrors and don't use them very much, so I think I'm good. Plus, I have a couple of the awesome sparkly Tarina Tarantino mirrors.

 

I did place multiple orders today- bad, bad, bad.

Re: No Buy July!

I wish Sephora never discontinued Tarina's line!

Re: No Buy July!

oh my gosh I never discovered TT until the products were discontinued by Sephora and popped up in the sale section.  I LOOOOooooooooved her stuff!  So sad that Sephora doesn't carry them any more.

Her pencil liners gave Urban Decay's a run for their money! :smileyhappy:

Re: No Buy July!

It took a couple of months, but you can buy her line from her website now.

@beautytester, yes, I think you should be kind of proud of yourself.  By waiting you can also test what you want in store and think longer about what you really want instead of jumping on it just because you get a first chance.  As you say, it's not limited edition.

 

I am not totally proud of myself, because I just placed a Hautelook order.  But I didn't go as nuts as I could have.  They have Clarins on the site today, including their exfoliating toner that I swear is simply not available in this country usually.  Since I want to try it, I was seriously considering ordering it in the UK and sending it to my mother-in-law to bring along when she visits in October.  So yes, I would have bought it later, but this has to be less expensive and less of a hassle.  I also got hydrating toner, as I am going through the other type that I got and one sale the price is right.  (I have used this off and on for years now.)

 

Now I really need to stop having "this is my only chance" things come my way because I really am good to wait otherwise!

Re: No Buy July!

Tell me about it! Whenever companies tack on the words "Limited Edition", my heart races ten times faster lol.

Re: No Buy July!

It's not even just that it's limited edition.  I can and have resisted some of that.  But I knew some things in the Ariel collection would not last and I wanted them back when Cinderella launched.  (Oh, well, I have at least been good about not buying Disney pins this year.  Trying not to be too bad next year when I'm there is much harder.)

 

But when I found the Clarins stuff I wanted and couldn't even put it on a list to buy later because I can't find it in this country, that was it.  (Do not ask my why it isn't here.  It's from France, it's carried by Clarins UK but not Clarins US, because I checked the website when I resisted making a big order earlier.) 

 

Oh well, back to being a good girl again.

Re: No Buy July!

I just completed the process of talking myself out of getting Marc Jacob collection NOW......cuz I realized I had 3 big beauty orders this month. It's not a limited edition, so I won't lose anything by getting it next month when the whole collection's here.

 

I feel......kind of proud of myself?

Re: No Buy July!

As an eyeshadow junkie, I wasn't really drawn to any of the palettes. Maybe it's because I couldn't justify $42 for 3 shades. And the colors of the 7-pan palettes have shades I can't see myself reaching for. Maybe I just have to see it in store first :smileyhappy:

Re: No Buy July!

Same. I feel like (from looking at the pictures) the colors in the palettes aren't unique or colors that I just HAD to have :/

Re: No Buy July!

Maybe they'll have more palette color options when the line hits the store! :smileyhappy:
