July No Buy Alumni!

Hey all my No Buy BBFFs!  Or is that NBBBFFs? LOL!  Just curious now that it's August, how are you all doing?  I know some of us are waiting for the Aug 12-18 points event, and others plan to continue the no buy, and some will be going on insane shopping sprees.  What's everyone up to?

 

For myself, I already pulled the trigger on some LORAC clearance items that I just couldn't resist.  The mint edition set that came out at Ulta this spring and that I forced myself NOT to purchase back then showed up for only $17 on the LORAC site!  Then to go the whole hog I also picked up the Red Carpet Reveal set (hoping it's not too stale since this is an older item).

So far this month I brought:

Anastasia Catwalk palette (only $29!) and drugstore nail polishes.

 

I'm going to buy two Sephora Favorites sets (the lip and eyeliner ones) sometime before the month is over. I hope they don't sell out.

What do you think of the Catwalk palette? I ordered it lastnight and can't wait to get it. It doesn't come with an instructional guide does it?  I have the Sephora Lip Favorites. It's very pretty!

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

it does come with an instructional guide. only a few looks, but definitely has a guide on where to start. the shadows are gorgeous and very buttery, so just use a delicate hand to avoid a ton of excess product (the excess is created in the palette, it's not a fall out issue on your face).

That's great to hear!  I also found a few tutorials on YouTube that will be helpful. Thank you for your response.

Money is gonna be tight for this/nxt year and I already have plenty of makeup/perfume/skincare to get me through. However, I'll be with my parents that week and since they can't be there for my bday.... *cough*cough*COUGH* ......we will be dropping by a Sephora to just "take a look" .... *cough*hint*nudge*HINT* ...... (that wasn't obvious at all...)

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

You know I'm always so focused on the Sephora and Ulta sales section, I always forget to go to the brands' actual sites to look! Thanks for the heads up on these products; I may have to pick up the mint kit for myself too! :smileyhappy:

 

I placed an order yesterday and had it shipped overnight. Talk about withdrawallllllllllll! LOL

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

wait was that your Asian cosmetics haul that you posted in the other thread???  whoa that was fast! :smileyvery-happy:

 

for the mint kit, I remember swatching it at Ulta in the spring and just loving the little bag that came with it!  Normally they feel kinda cheap but this one is actually little metal links (not just a print) and has a nice heft to it.  I have a fond weakness for adorable makeup bags!

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

They've been sitting in my cart for weeks; I had to pull the trigger! hahaha

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

I haven't purchased anything yet. I think I am going to wait for the 12th.  But, I am still not going to go all out, I have to be good which is really hard!! (My husband just does not understand!) Big purchases are just not in the budget right now.
