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!

But you don't get 100 pts for buying the bag, I think.  You get it for going to a store that has the Skin IQ setup and having a consultation.  At least that's how I read it -- two separate things.  And it looks like only the really big stores have those (Prudential seems to be the only one I'm seeing in MA/NH/RI).  They seem like two separate things.  (So you could get the consult and not spend much money -- it does say any purchase or spend $35 and get the bag without the Skin IQ.) 

 

I just wish the Skin IQ was available in more locations.

Re: No Buy July!

Wait wait wait... yet another VIB email I didn't get.  What's the deal?

Re: No Buy July!

Instore consultation plus a purchase for an extra 100 pts. Also, if you spend $35, you get a Sephora bag with 9 foiled skincare samples Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Another day, a whole bunch of dollars... saved that is Smiley Very Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Dollars, time, and space!  I say it is a good deal!

Re: No Buy July!

Now I'm compiling a list of non-makeup things I could buy with all the dollars saved! Smiley Very Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Ohh like what?

mk.jpgThis clutch will be mine if I can make it through this month without buying makeup! Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Smiley Surprised so pretty!!

Re: No Buy July!

Hehe I think I spent the money saved (and more) at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I might have to do a no buy August too =/

Re: No Buy July!

What'd you get at the Anniversary sale? Nothing really caught my attention this year -- which is fine with me Smiley Very Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Oh my goodness! The shoe department killed me! I fell for the Rag & Bone Harrow Boot. If I were to have only purchased one thing, it would've been that boot! I highly recommend it!

Re: No Buy July!

Definately on a no necessity no buy.  I went through my make up a few weeks back and gave an entire huge dump bag full of make up away to my little cousin cuz I just couldn't use cuz of irritation or didn't look right. And I gave her a couple Tarte pallets that I was not impressed with. Made me little ill when I tallied up the amount of money I basically gave away.   Yes, I could have returned after I bought it but I never feel right returning products I've used and should have known better than to buy to begin with. Like blue eyes shadow,  I know that's not a color for me! or glitter liner. Any who, I am on punishment until I make better purchasing decisions. I have a kid starting college next month so I need to save anyway.  Smiley Wink

Re: No Buy July!

I feel bad about returning items as well! It's one thing if it's not the right foundation shade, but it's a different story if it was a regret purchase. Tarte pressed eyeshadows are not exactly my favorite. Their cream shadows, on the other hand, are AWESOME! Hooray for jumping on the No Buy wagon! Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Once I returned some stuff and got dirty looks from the Sephora employees, so yeah I usually try not to return stuff.

Re: No Buy July!

Really?! That's absurd! Didn't they see your shiny silver card that denotes your VIBness and all its glory?

Re: No Buy July!

TGIF!!!!!  I've worked a solid 12 hours today and normally I'd swing by my local Sephora to de-stress but.....I'm pretty sure I'd walk out with $$$ worth of goodies so I'll stay away today Smiley Happy  Maybe get some some chocolate cake instead Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

My usual treat? One of the small sandwich cookies from Whole Foods. One per week.... not too guilty!

Re: No Buy July!

I lived down the street from Whole Foods for a few months. My wallet had never seen a bigger dent! haha

Re: No Buy July!

Ever since Whole Foods started the growler program in my area, it's been eating my wallet!
