You're not alone, makeuppiggy!  A lot of us have trouble with spending too much on makeup and there is a great thread on here about "Shopping Your Own Stash" which is helpful in keeping from purchasing new items. 

Here's a link to that thread:  http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confessions/CHALLENGE-Shop-your-own-stash/td-p/83263

Also, the thread about "No Buy" is along the same subject line and you can read it here:  http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confessions/No-buy/td-p/174453

Hope this helps!
Have a great day!

I think I am a poor role model for curbing makeup acquisition!  Probably true for most of us here. If I want to cut down my spending and I am going to the store, I take out some money from the bank and when it's gone, I have to go home. But I usually leave the store and lust after stuff I saw there and pretty soon I end up ordering them online.

 

I recently read that the way to develop willpower is to clench your muscles when you feel your resolve ebbing. I tried it with dessert and it somewhat works for that, but not so much for makeup.  But look at it this way, your passion could be for something a lot less innocuous than makeup. :smileyvery-happy:

Put yourself on a "No-buy." Don't allow yourself to buy anything for a set amount of time! (Or at least try to. :smileywink: )

Read the No-buy thread and some people have good advice!

 

Hope this helped!!

xoxo, Charlotte

To stop spending money on makeup several things work for me.  First I go through everything I have and pull out the great colours/products for the season and set them up where I can see and use daily.  Next I think about things I need to get that are not makeup or things I want to save for and purchase them as rewards after a specified time of successful not-spending.  Also I think about things I'd like to do and spend me time on so that I have a plan and don't find myself bored casually buying things for the sake of buying/collecting.   To succeed you need to know where you are starting and have a plan to succeed.  Keeping myself occupied and out of stores is usually the best way for an out-of-control habit.
