I'm in! I actually did really well during the summer last year, with about 3 straight months of no Sephora orders or shopping. (Of course, I was working a ton and skipped checking the beauty blogs, so I guess I'll have to go back to doing that...)

 

I think I'll go now until end of July, with an excused absence for the Maleficent collection when it releases (but I only want 3 things), and another one toward the end of May when I'll be visiting the mainland and can almost count on my cousins and aunts wanting to go to a Sephora while I'm there. :s

Yep, that is what I kept telling myself too.

But there was always just more thing, one more little great promo and ohhhhhh that is so pretty thing I needed! We've all been there!

That looks like the exact size of coffee mug I need when I have to work in the Trauma Bay :smileyvery-happy:

 

I'll take all those donuts and drinks too, thanks :smileytongue:

Thanks for the thread and for the COFFEE!

Can I join? I can't promise not to look at the "new arrivals".

My goal is to be on a no buy until November.

 

Lets be strong girls.

Kudos for waiting till November!

 

Depending on how I do these next few months, I may also extend my no-buy till November :smileyhappy:

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Come on it! Of course you can! WOW! November! You are a brave - brave woman.

No problem on the 'new arrivals' but don't tell us if something pops up ;-)

 

Strong is an understatement! Been about 24 hours for me and I am about to lose my mind!!!! ;-)

I haven't bought but my love lists is filling up just from reading and seeing all the hauls from the sale.

 

I am still pending 10 or so orders! <hangs head in shame> but I have not bought since creating this thread!

Makeupinfinity

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

OMG 10!

Stay strong girl.

As you can see from my order history, I had a dry spell from November 2012 until this January.

I came back strong with 9 orders since (+ 3 in-store). And its only April. :smileysad:

hackneyfl

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Yep me and mailman, fedex man, ups man on first name basis, hoping most will be here tomorrow. I am to ashamed to post my order history for the year! So, I just listed last few transactions so that people can see the date of last purchase and that will continue to be last purchase until 05/31! Then will come off for bday month and then hopping right back on no-buy until Fall!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Oh goodness.... I don't know :smileysad: I know I should, but maybe a no buy on unnecessary buys... like another palette or something

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Joining this no-buy until May 31st! The 15% off sale really hurt my wallet and now I have plenty to play with.

Come on in and have a seat! Coffee, ALCOHOL (only way I might make it until 5/31 myself) and donuts will be served soon ;-)

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

My blackout dates are May 7th to the end of August for beauty products :smileyhappy:

 

May 6th is a big Sephora trip with my recently engaged coworker and male ex-coworker who's a sucker for Sephora's men's cologne!

 

I better get my summer purchases in ASAP.
