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!

So jealous right now! Ever since I've moved, the closest Whole Foods is 45 minutes away!

Re: No Buy July!

I just saw a quick "how to" ice cream sandwiches in reader's digest that involves putting a little bit of ice cream between 2 pretzel squares.  I tried it this week using a melon baller and it was great! Not only did a few satisfy my sweet craving, but it was the best combo of sweet and salty.  

Re: No Buy July!

That's such a good idea! Definitely a better choice than Trail Mix, which is my go-to fix Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Or frozen yogurt with all the yummy toppings -- aka my weakness! lol

Re: No Buy July!

We're almost half way there Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

YESSS!!! I don't mind this month slowing down though, since we haven't really had a Summer so far in Ohio.

Re: No Buy July!

This No Buy July couldn't have come at a better time. Who suddenly has car problems this month? This girl. Smiley Sad

I don't know about anyone else but I get quite anxious when I get "stuck" at home and can't leave. Since I can't leave I've been looking at beauty websites.Trying to convince myself I don't need anything!!! 

At least my muji drawers came in today. Maybe organizing them will be enough of a distraction... fingers crossed

 

Re: No Buy July!

ooh let us know how it goes!  you might rediscover some old favorites in your stash when you're organizing stuff in your new muji drawers!

Re: No Buy July!

That's mostly why I'm reorganizing and moving to clear drawers... so I can see what I have! I'm really surprised at how much room the Muji drawers have... theres two empty drawers right now! And trust me, I have a LOT of makeup. Still working on it!

Re: No Buy July!

Oh no! At least you'll be inside where it'll hopefully be cooler Smiley Happy Btw, learn from me and never make beauty purchases past midnight. So many regret purchases, haha.

Re: No Buy July!

Haha my AC actually kicked the bucket today. Of all days right?

Its ok though, trying to stay positive. And I know!!! Those late nights get me too.

Re: No Buy July!

I know the feeling- mine kicked it right before Memorial Day.

Re: No Buy July!

It's always the worst timing isn't it? Hope you got yours fixed!

Re: No Buy July!

On the flip side, you'll be super productive with the organization Smiley Happy I hope the rest of your weekend turns out better!!

Re: No Buy July!

I already know the first item I am going to buy in August after the no buy is over.  False eyelashes.  My cousin is getting married in August and I have been watching so many beauty videos on you tube that I have talked myself into trying to wear them for the first time ever!  

Re: No Buy July!

Which brand were you thinking? I've heard Demi Ardell Wispies are quite good! I tried falsies but I had to rip them off since they were really uncomfortable on my eyes.

Re: No Buy July!

I have heard a lot about those too.  Here are the brands/types I am debating on:

 

1. Red cherry #43

2. Salon perfect #53 or #110

3. Ardell #53 or #110

 

If I am reading the websites correctly #53 is demi whispies, #110 is natural, and I don't know about #43 but it seems a little more dramatic than the demi whispies but the same shape.

Re: No Buy July!

I'm not officially participating, but by the end of July I will have tested all of the color makeup I have sitting around. Hooray!

Re: No Buy July!

Hopefully you'll have found some dupes in the collection Smiley Wink Don't forget to share with us which ones you found!

Re: No Buy July!

July 13: one more day down!

Re: No Buy July!

WOO HOO! Bring it on, rest of July!! Smiley Very Happy
