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'm almost tempted to call this the Beautyholics Anonymous thread Smiley Wink

Re: No Buy July!

I agree about having this support.  I am so glad that I am not doing this alone.  Many thanks to you all!

Re: No Buy July!

Thank YOU as well! Keep up the great work, ladies! Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

This is my first no buy and I'm doing great so far despite all of the fall collections coming out. I'm thinking of maybe doing a no buy every other month.

Re: No Buy July!

The ultimate No Buy July test: I went into a Sephora today, and DIDN'T BUY ANY MAKEUP. Woo!

Can't say I was an angel though because I got myself a rollerball perfume (Flowerbomb - Viktor & Rolf), but this was something I've wanted for a long time and my other perfume just ran out. Not an impulse buy at all. Making lots of progress!

Re: No Buy July!

Baby steps Smiley Happy But no impulse buy is a great start!

Re: No Buy July!

 

Confession time: placed an order for my cousin living in Australia who has no access to Sephora nor Tarte, when she called me this morning about this palette! It sure is a pretty palette but I wasn't a fan of the Aqualilies one, so I won't be buying one for myself Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Forgot to mention that the purchase was made with one of the gift cards I received.

Re: No Buy July!

I saw this and want it! I've never tried any of tarte's powder products but it looks so pretty!

Re: No Buy July!

Tarte's cream eyeshadows = AMAZING!!! Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Yeah, if I'm buying beauty products for someone else, I don't count that as part of a no-buy.  You're doing a nice thing for your cousin!

 

Although maybe I should count it in my case....I bought an awful lot of stuff for my sister over the last few months.....and she doesn't even wear makeup!  

Re: No Buy July!

The makeup industry in Australia hike the prices, it's ridiculous! A drugstore foundation costs nearly $40! The downside to living in a country where the accent makes me weak at the knees Smiley Wink

Re: No Buy July!

Tarte Aqualilies and this palette smells terrible, btw.

Re: No Buy July!

@poshified- I got that palette to when it first came out I love the colors in it there so workable.

Re: No Buy July!

Was this a re-released palette?

Re: No Buy July!

it is a super cute palette!

Re: No Buy July!

@poshified-No I got it on the website from Tarte it was at the beginning of summer I got an email from them and that's the only place I've ever seen it.

Re: No Buy July!

Oh ok I see! She'd only told me she missed out when it was live on QVC -- never knew it was on the Tarte site.

Re: No Buy July!

So I was out running errands and decided to let myself go to Marshall's and look at perfumes (*bows head in shame* I have SO much perfume), and told myself I could only buy one if it was under $15. I heard a lot of good things about the Jordan Sparks perfume, and they had a 2.5 oz bottle for $8!! AND it smells great.

So far, I've broken twice this month, but have only spent a grand total of $11 on beauty products. I don't think I'm doing *too* bad! 

Re: No Buy July!

$11 isn't bad at all! We'll forgive you just this once Smiley Very Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Definitely, $11 over the first half of a no-buy month....we can let that pass Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

O.M.G i love friends and this episode and most of them were so funny!!!!!!!!

Re: No Buy July!

Well, the month is about 1/2 over and I have 6 empties!

 

I am happy I am getting rid of stuff, but I am sad it is not more makeup items.  What are you all using up since starting the no buy?

Re: No Buy July!

woot!  you're doing a great job!

 

I didn't take any photos, but I have run through a few items:

-Cibu spray-in hair conditioner (yay it's finally gone!)

-threw out a couple old eyeliners and mascaras that don't work/dried up

 

I think that's all unfortunately Smiley Sad  Still nowhere near hitting pan on any eyeshadows or blush.

Re: No Buy July!

I had like over 100 foil samples and I'm 1/4 way through
