No Buy July!

Having gone through my makeup collection extensively the past week, I've decided to go on a 'No Buy July' challenge (which includes not buying necessities such as makeup remover and brush cleansers, since I have loads of deluxe samples to go through.) As an avid supporter of both Sephora stores and Sephora.com, this might be difficult, but I'm still determined Smiley Happy.

 

My goal is to make it through the entire month of July without any purchases, and if possible, until my birthday in August.

 

If any of you beautyholics are also planning on a No Buy July, please comment below (and help each other through the next month-ish! Smiley Very Happy)

Re: No Buy July!

I think I might join in on this... but maybe allow myself to buy 5 things? I mean just depriving myself... I don't think I can do that!! But definitely no skin care or body stuff for me!!! I can't even fit it all in my medicine cabinet anymore, its piling underneath the sink and now its spilling out into my room just literally sitting in bags no more!

Re: No Buy July!

I think as long as you set some parameters for youself and stay within those parameters, then you are looking good.  I think the whole idea is to set a goal.  Everyone's goal may be a little different.  For one person it may be a no-buy from sephora, for someone else it may be a no-buy from anywhere.  And eveyone sets a goal for different reasons.  So I say, go for it!

Re: No Buy July!

I couldn't have said it better!

Re: No Buy July!

We all have our own weaknesses, lol. Palettes and eyeshadows are mine!

Re: No Buy July!

Me 2!

Re: No Buy July!

I can't do it. Because of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. lol.

 

Come August, I also won't be able to do a no-buy since I'm planning to spend the needed amount for me to be a VIB. lol.

 

Maybe September? haha. Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

I was looking at Best Things In Beauty blog and the roundup for this year's Nordstrom Anniversary sale... and nothing really stood out. Shocking, considering I went overboard last year! haha. What are you planning on getting at the Anniversary sale?

Re: No Buy July!

Sept: you might have friend's bday

Oct: Halloween make-up and more lotion

Nov: black Friday deal, early Xmas shopping

Dec: Xmas shopping

Its all good. There are always reasons to shop, especially at Sephora Smiley Wink

Re: No Buy July!

Not to mention two Sephora Friends and Family (one given to employees' f&f and the other one for Beauty Insiders) offers thrown in those months! haha

Re: No Buy July!

Day 1: Success!  I did not buy any makeup today, lol.

Re: No Buy July!

30 more days to go!  We can do it!

Re: No Buy July!

Great job, ladies!! Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Scratch July 2 (and the first few hours of July 3) off the list!  Yay!  I take nothing for granted....it does not get easier with time for me so I never know what day I might be tempted by a sale item or flash sale.  So far so good.....

Re: No Buy July!

We. Can. Get. Through. This. Smiley Happy I've definitely been browsing fall collections and sale items, esp the sales section here. So far, nothing has been too tempting.

Re: No Buy July!

Yay, another 10 hours without buying anything beauty-related!  Day 3: done!  (it sorta hurts to think of how many days are left!)

Re: No Buy July!

I'm right there with ya on counting down the days till August comes around! Smiley Very Happy

Re: No Buy July!

I know, I even started making a list of items I wanted to get after July was over, but then I realized I was making my situation worse.  Now I am focusing on what products I am using up and that makes me feel better about this no-buy.

Beautiful palette <3

Re: No Buy July!

I haven't participated in any of the "no buy" challenges & even if I wanted to this month, I totally failed today!  There's absolutely nothing that I need, but I cant walk by a Sephora without wandering in.  I picked up the Neon Lights OPI set, Sephora OPI Domestic Goddess (both 50% off, so I dont feel bad at all), a BeautyBlender & Sephora Brush Cleaner.  I also grabbed the KVD Lock It Foundation & Bronzer for my sisters wedding Smiley Happy but since its not exactly for me (I'm building her a day of kit), I'm convinced it doesnt count.  Eek, I also picked up a new lipstick from a different store & a bottle of Fix+.  Yikes, that was more of a haul, wasnt is?!  Sigh... My name is Mia & I have an addiction to makeup!!

 

xo, Mia

Re: No Buy July!

I've tried a no buy in the past and have broken down with the limited edition items! lol. But having toss out a lot of half used makeup items due to changes in the scent or drying out of mascaras, I really need to be more strict on the spending this time around.

 

That said, I'm excited to try the new KVD powder foundation at some point Smiley Happy. Also, the Sephora Brush cleaner is something I always need to have on hand!
