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).

After 5 tries and two pairs of lashes I finally got a pair on that looked half-way decent.  I think it helped that this pair was more natual looking and a little shorter than most.

Ooooh it looks nice :smileyvery-happy: lol, I usually cut the lashes, even though the length fits my eye I just feel like it helps it look more natural, cut the longer lashes at the outside.

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

Thanks!  This pair I did not have to cut, but it made me realize that maybe a slightly shorter length is what I need.

They are Salon Perfect (from Walmart) in #53.  I would definitely buy them again. They even come in a four pack for a very reasonable price. (Less than 9 dollars)

hee heee heeeeee my Lorac goodies arrived today! *rubs hands in glee*  those lip glosses are so pretty to look at!  I didn't realize that zigzag stripe was shimmery....wonder how they did that??

 

I actually felt a little meh about the red carpet reveal set when I ordered it, but I am really loving it!  It's the perfect grab and go item for my business trips, all the colors are perfect for a conservative work environment and the dark brown shadow can double as a liner.  The tearose blush has some serious pigmentation.  It even came in its own little black case.

 

Yay!
