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!

I feel the very same! I will try to reign it in so it doesn't counter the money I've saved this month.

I'll do a big haul when I finish, but then I think I'll do the project 5 pan, just for my makeup because what I'm seeing in my project 10 pan is that I'm using up skincare and face makeup (foundation, concealer and the like) but I'm not using up what I have most of, which is eyeshadows, lip colors and cheek products and that is really what I have to work on the most.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Welcome to our thread :smileyvery-happy: I'm so glad this can be helpful to you. When asking about need it's rarely a need versus a want which can be kind of enlightening.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Fabz---I tried the bb cream for the first time today, I cant really give it a fair review yet, but so far, I like it. Its a lot thicker than I expected, I thought the consistency would be similar to a TM but its not. Its moisturizing and not greasy, and leaves a dewy finish. It smells *divine* and its packed with amazing natural ingredients. The color is too dark for me, its about a medium and I'm fair right now but thats okay because I like to look more tan sometimes. They only make this one color in the tinted one...it says its supposed to suit most skintones which makes sense because most women are about a medium. I think it has light coverage, I say think because I used a setting powder over it so I'm not sure exactly yet. Tomorrow I'm gonna wear it without the setting powder and see how it looks/wears.

 

Oh I forgot to say the 2 items that I bought that I ran out of I got drugstore stuffs because the point of the no buy is also to save moneyz. Both my new concealer and powder are Rimmel London.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Divine?! What an amazing description! I haven't head that word used in such a long time. Let me know how it works for you after a couple weeks.

 

In other words: CONGRATS LADIES

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Almost half way through the month! I'm glad everyone is doing so well. I'm even thinking of returing some stuff I got in Feb. before the return window close. I feel like doing this has really gotten me to start thinking about what I "need" and what I "want." Although I have to admit, I have some stuff on my shopping list for the next VIB sale, hopefully sometime in April like last year *keeps fingers crossed*

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I love that picture veevali!! I'm glad that other people are joining in because I dont want to hog the thread!

 

I'm really glad that I'm on this no buy, I've completed 90% of my project 10 pan already (and that NEVER would have happened without the no-buys!). I did buy a couple of things that I completely ran out of (powder, concealer) and my mom gave me some things (I'm really excited about the BB cream she gave me, it the first all natural one I've ever seen! The Andalou Naturals Brightening Tinted one) so now I'm all set to continue my no buy. I was hoping that I would be able to complete my no buy without running out of anything but alas...that didnt happen. I ended up having no face makeup items except for one powder foundation thats wayyy to dark for me to use right now.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Congrats! It sounds like you are doing great. Let me know about that BB cream, I have heard bad review about most of them.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Day 13 DONE! Man how many more days are left in March? LOL I'm already planning my Sephora trip after this.

Fabz

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I know right?! 31 days seems like forever this month. I have been adding things to my online baskets on sephora and ulta...this isn't going to be pretty.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge
