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 Smiley Happy.

 

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! Smiley Very Happy)

Re: No Buy July!

I'm like you. Sometimes I forget to use the things I've bought.

Re: No Buy July!

Ah I would too but with the 4X points for rouge aug 12-18...

 

i think I will hold out after that for all the Christmas gift sets... 

Re: No Buy July!

This thread enabled me into buying that Tarte palette.

 

However, I'll have to post my empties on here. Y'all will be impressed. I may buy a lot, but I'm using up a lot.

Yes, post pictures! I love to see them!

Re: No Buy July!

I'm with you on the empties boat! I'm not sure if all my empties can fit in one picture LOL

Lol it isn't it ironic Smiley Tongue and I try so hard to keep my empties I just can't thought! I end up throwing those away Smiley Sad

Super duper excited to see your empties though!

Re: No Buy July!

HAHAHA You're going to love me at the end of the year- one of my goals for all of 2013 was to hold onto all of my empties so that I can accurately assess just how much I justifiably use during 12 months. I've got the room- just another shopping bag (almost 2!!!) in a hall closet.

Re: No Buy July!

Omg! Lol I'm curious to see what it will be at the end of the year! I've always wondered how much I actually use compared to what I buy... which I know I buy way more since I keep running out of space.

I buy more than I use for sure, but now that I'm at a financial place where I can buy what I want and have the room to store what I want I need to figure it out.

Re: No Buy July!

LOL...I don't qualify for this challenge..

Hi, My name is Amira...and I'm addicted to make-up!!!!

My bday is in August...so maybe I'll try this in September Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Hello AmiraHall! My birthday's in August too which is why I'm doing this in July! haha. Must exercise self-control in August Smiley Very Happy

Re: No Buy July!

@poshified- 

I'm curious about that lovely LM illuminator. Is it a powder or a cream? I can't tell from the product page.

Re: No Buy July!

It's powder Smiley Happy. I believe it's similar in consistency to the Estee Lauder illumination powder gelee that everyone was raving about a while back.

Re: No Buy July!

It looks so cool!  I'm completely unable to resist face powders Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

I can't either! Especially when it's so prettily designed Smiley Very Happy

Re: No Buy July!

With August around the corner, what are y'all planning on hauling (out of curiosity)? Smiley Happy

 

My top 3 products are:

Re: No Buy July!

OK, I need that Laura Mercier powder.

 

However, I know what the 4x points are going to coax me into finally buying:

 

 

I'll probably pick this up the next time I'm in store since I love my MUFE so much and have been super impressed by Sephora Collection's quality lately:

 

And I'm also digging this set for some reason:

 

Re: No Buy July!

I really want one of these (note: I'm aware that they aren't the best brushes, but dangit they are red):

 

Dior Summer Blush Brush

 

Shu Uemura 18R

Re: No Buy July!

Gahhhh, I didn't know it but there has been a red-bristled blush brush sized hole in my life. 

Re: No Buy July!

Yes, yes there has been rikkie. You need these!

Re: No Buy July!

Aargh, I want to justify it to myself by saying I could use it with the Guerlain meteorites, it sounds like it would work nicely, not quite so stiff/scratchy as the Guerlain brush and nice and big for sweeping across the face. 

 

Is it less than $55 anywhere or do I just need to suck it up? It's really tempting! Red and black is kind of my weakness, it doesn't really matter what it is, if you make it red and black then I probably need it, hahaha.
