The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I figured we needed an official thread for this.  The goal is to detox from frequent beauty purchases (beauty basics exempt) for one month beginning on March 1st.   This is the place to give tips and tricks on your willpower, support for it, and whatever random cravings that may come your way!

 

Good luck, ladies!

swfupload_5368192620242057150.gifI just added a bunch of orange lipsticks to my shopping list. I've been wanting one since last summer and the right kind of orange looks really nice on me.

Oh I love Korres lip butter in Mango, it's bright orange and scary, but it's sheer so it just makes my lips look pouty.

 

Well, you have a couple weeks time to research and narrow the choice down before you buy next month. ;P

swfupload_6445648147096402275.jpgFabz---Noooooooooo, BRIGHT orange. Spring/summer type of color. I've been wearing a lot of bright pants lately, and have kinda been matching my lipcolor to my pants hehe. Weird? Maybe. If I got my bright pink pants on, I have my bright pink lip on. Makes it easier to rock a super bright color (helllooo lip tars!!).

 

Now that I think about it...its not a color that I would wear everyday, all the time....so maybe I should get a drugstore one. I'm looking at Milani lipstick in mandarina, and maybe Rimmel london has a nice bright orange too. Or maybe even flower beauty!

beautytester---I dont know if this is just me, but the Korres lip butters leave this extremely unpleasant aftertaste in my mouth that I can feel all the way down to the pit of my stomach. I have the clear one (which actually goes on WHITE, no joke) and havent touched it in months. Its good for sheering out/lightening too dark lipsticks or too bright lipsticks though. Just not a a fan of the aftertaste.

The fact that the kat is wearing a rice bowl on its head makes me even more happy!

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Orange? wow I have never even contimplated that color choice. Are you talking about a dark orange?

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Congrats ladies! I hope everyone is doing great so far. I almost forgot I was even doing this the other day as I was browsing Walgreens (yes...again!). I snapped out of it and walked out with my candy and formula :smileytongue:

Its okay to browse, both in store and online. This isnt an anti-window shopping thread lol. Plus, I love looking at new things.

 

Okay I know that a lot of you guys have tried NYX. What are the lip glosses like? Texture/pigment/smell wise? I saw a gorgeous pink (beige) at the grocery store the other day, they have a massive selection of neat colors. I've only used their chubby eyeliner, and I gave it away lol.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I've been told that the lipglosses have a strange scent to it. Other than that they are quite pretty.

moregun89------ Ohhhh do the project 10 pan with me!! Puuuleeezze? I've feel like I'm the only one posting in there, its like I'm talking to myself. I have 3 more products to go but I am noticing that its mostly skincare that I'm using up...and makeup is what I'm really supposed to be working on (which I am, it just takes awhile). But if I did a makeup only no-buy it would take me at least 6 months to use up 10 products...and I dont want to go that long without buying nothin'. :smileysad:

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

We should throw ourselves a party once this is done!

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I'm doing proj 10-pan, except in the finishing product thread cuz I can't find the 10pan one. I'm done with 4/6. Grrrr, I need to remember to use up the other 2. The masks are gonna be a bit difficult since I only use those 1-2x a week.

 

Oh I'm sure we are gonna have a party, as in a sephora purchasing party for those who are bursting to buy. =X

 

That puppy pic is from google. Me no can haz pet, sadly.
