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!

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

Re: No Buy July!

For some reason, I can usually only get one application from foil packets before the product hardens or changes texture and/or color by the next day.

Re: No Buy July!

@poshified- do you have any leftover little sample containers from Sephora? (they usually stick foundation or liquid-y samples in them). I cut open and squeeze my little sample packettes in those containers, which keeps the air from getting in and lets me get a couple uses out of them Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Oooh thanks for the tip! I'll have to start saving the sample containers Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

I have yet to hit pan on a blush. Cross my fingers that the first blush I hit on is NOT a limited edition one haha!

Re: No Buy July!

That's awesome!

 

I already threw my stuff out, so no pictures, but I just finished my tube of Kate Somerville ExfoliKate enzyme peel! Happy about it b/c I have two other peels I've been waiting to try, but saddened b/c I loved ExfoliKate and I want to get another one!! I also finished a mini bottle of my Jennifer Aniston perfume -- but I have 2 more minis, + a full size bottle. Smiley Wink 

 

I need to get cracking on some of my makeup though. Somehow, that takes longest to finish!

 

 

Re: No Buy July!

Color makeup is impossible to use. I FINALLY hit pan on my transition color after using it daily the past 7 months! Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Wow!  That is an accomplishment for sure!  If you think about how much real estate you are covering with the color its no wonder it takes for-ev-er to go though. I have yet to hit pan on any color.

Re: No Buy July!

Great job!  You are so good! If I have different brands of the same type of product I tend to open them all and try a little of this and a little of that.  Hence why I could last the entire month of July (and probably August and September) without making another beauty purchase.  

Re: No Buy July!

I'm like you -- I branch out in too many directions when it comes to trying new products! lol

Re: No Buy July!

Yay for finishing products! I've got a pile of things I've used up -- will post it soon Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Tube of Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream in Shade 23: FINISHED! Been working on that bad boy the past year or so.

 

Dior Diorshow Brow Styler: DONE. I'm kinda bummed about finishing it, since it was so pricey. You can bet on my keeping the spoolie! Smiley Happy

 

Another day of no purchasing DOWN!
