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 just don't understand why you would stick a glitter right smack dab in the middle of two mattes!!! Also I have a laura mercier palette that does it, even worse its purple next to a cream color... just why?

Re: No Buy July!

Ugh, that's just as bad as having black eyeshadows in the same palette as lip products!

Re: No Buy July!

I can't even deal with lip palettes, who seriously carries around a lip brush? The only lip palette that I have and actually use is the Bobbi Brown 15th anniversary one I think, it comes with the lip brush in it already and its pretty compact, but I'd rather just carry around a lipstick honestly.

Re: No Buy July!

Are you one of those people who have countless lipsticks and lipglosses in your purse/bag? I can honestly say I'm guilty of that! lol

Re: No Buy July!

By countless... hahaha I'm actually not too bad, that mainly because I switch out my purses frequently so I take out all my lip products and just carry around the lipstick of the day which changes every day because I can't be bothered to take it out of my purse to put it on the next day haha. Right now I have 3 in my smaller purse, and 5 in my larger purse... is it sad that I know exactly how many I have in each without checking? lol

Re: No Buy July!

I've lasted this far which is incredible for me Smiley Happy I've made it 10 days without buying anything at sephora or ulta. I can't deny I'm bit proud of myself plus the dearth of good vib offers helps lol. 

Re: No Buy July!

I agree! Now when they start rolling out VIB Rouge perks, it might be a different story lol

Re: No Buy July!

I couldn't do this when the holiday sets start rolling out, that would just be a day by day lie, seriously they have the best promo codes during the holidays too! They're just out to get me!

Re: No Buy July!

Tarte has some of the best holiday sets! Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Yes!! One year I literally bought all of their gifts sets other then one... that was a bad year, well not for all my gifts that I wrapped myself! Just for my bank account lol.

Re: No Buy July!

One more day down!  We're a third of the way through July!

Re: No Buy July!

This year is going by waaaaaaaaaay too quickly. It needs to slow down a bit. One good thing about this no buy business is that it's making me re-evaluate and cross off things I thought I'd be buying in August, including that Dior palette, haha.

Re: No Buy July!

woooo, that sounds like good progress!

 

i'm struggling with that today though (probably due to work stress)....i just added 5 new things to my wishlist tonight!  and two of them are eyeshadow palettes!  but then I remembered about the VIB sale in Nov and immediately felt better about not needing to purchase anything NOW Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Thats what I keep telling myself haha, just wait till the 20% off you can do it! I have to give myself pep talks Smiley Tongue.

On another note I wish that Sephora would let us see other peoples wishlist, that would be so much fun!

Re: No Buy July!

Haha don't forget the employees' friends and family in Sept/Oct too! What palettes are on your wishlist, out of curiosity?

Re: No Buy July!

they are neutral palettes from Too Face and Bare Minerals.

I went and swatched the Bare Minerals over the weekend and it was gorgeous....better in person than the photo.  Aside from my Laura Mercier Artist Palette for Eyes, I don't really have a good neutrals palette oddly enough.  I do have plenty of singles though.  

Re: No Buy July!

Oooh both look like great sets! Especially that Too Faced kit! Pink overload Smiley Happy That reminds me, I need to depot my singles sometimes.

Re: No Buy July!

Yes I've been drooling over that little brush set for a while and when they came out with this new bundle I really had to sit on my hands not to buy it immediately!

Re: No Buy July!

I've been eyeing those BareMinerals shadows too!! And I would love to get that Too Faced set but I already have the shadows :< woe is me lol

Re: No Buy July!

the thing about their 8.0 palettes is that I totally love the little brush that comes with it.  one end is a normal shader brush, but the other end is sort of a pointy liner shape but a bit thicker than actual eyeliner brushes so I can use it for detailed crease work, or dampen it for smudgy liner.

Re: No Buy July!

I am glad you are crossing things off your list!  I feel like my list just keeps getting longer and longer.  I counted 70 products (makeup, skin care, nails, hair care) on my list that I have been seeing and wanting to try.  

 

I hope that in August I don't go out of control!
