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!

Those Ikea Alex drawers have been on my wish list for the longest time!

Re: No Buy July!

We'll let it slide, but just this once Smiley Wink

Re: No Buy July!

anyone keeping track of their empties for July?

Re: No Buy July!

So far I've finished my Yucca Root Shampooing Cream by Nick Chavez, my Lush Ro's Argan Body conditioner and Catastrophe Casometics Face mask are on their last leg too, one more just from each and they'll be gone! 

Re: No Buy July!

I am! By the end of the month, I'm aiming for at least 10 empties Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

I am putting them on my dresser like trophies!  I am so lame.

Re: No Buy July!

hahaha that's not lame!  it's so satisfying to see the empty bottles piling up!

 

regarding empties though, mine are always haircare or body related (shampoo, lotion, etc).  I have never managed to actually finish an eyeshadow or blush!

Re: No Buy July!

Same! I can count how many makeup products I've actually used completely on one hand, I just get too bored to use one blush or shadow consistently enough to use it up.

Re: No Buy July!

I've finally hit pan on Urban Decay's eyeshadows in Naked and Skimp (which they should release a single shadow version of.) I've also been using both on a daily basis the pasts year lol!

Re: No Buy July!

Take a picture and let us know what you've used up already Smiley Happy!

Re: No Buy July!

I can one-up just July- I'm holding onto all of them for 2013 so I can see how much I literally use in a year to better adjust my spending.

Re: No Buy July!

Since I've joined in on the No Buy July, I have banned myself from buying makeup. But yesterday I saw the Muji drawers that have been sold out FOR-EV-ER (that all the beauty youtubers rave about) finally were restocked! So I allowed myself to buy some makeup organization. These drawers are perfect for my smaller items which are getting lost in the big storage containers I have now. 

Can you tell how excited I am about these? I think I'm just proud I've gone this long without buying makeup period. This was harder than I thought it would be! I'm an addict for sure.

Re: No Buy July!

Aww man I'ev seen those drawers they look so pretty lol! Be strong we can do it we're almost a third of the way there!

Re: No Buy July!

I'm trying! Ah so many temptations it's starting to get really tough

Re: No Buy July!

Aww man do I know it lol, for me its not even the savings emails, its anyone that Sephora sends out hahaha

Re: No Buy July!

Especially with deals... I am a SUCKER for a good deal. I need to stop getting sale emails from makeup companies!

Re: No Buy July!

The Mujis and Ikea Alex are definitely both on my wish list!

Re: No Buy July!

I work at Sephora so doing a no buy would be hard.  That would be like working in a bakery and being told you can't eat any cake!  Sooooo tempting...maybe I'll give this no buy thing a try....just not this month because yeaaaaaaahhh.....too late

 

Re: No Buy July!

Ok I thought we should inaugurate this thread with two of my favorite images ever that beautytester has posted in BT (and she's posted a lot!)

Re: No Buy July!

Haha, I feel like Im the online equivalent of a cat lady. The amount of lolanimal and heart related pic are prob more than the beauty related ones.....dont actually have pets, so gotta satisfy myself with pictures.

Re: No Buy July!

My buddy, overly dramatic squirrel!!!
