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!

Perfect!

Re: No Buy July!

this is perfect, yes

Re: No Buy July!

LOVE IT! Of course, it's got Ariel to celebrate Sephora's collection Smiley Wink

Re: No Buy July!

Hahahh this is hilarious! The Little Mermaid was my favorite Disney movie growing up and I know all the songs in there; bringing back old memoriessss. 

 

I want to be where the Sephoras are

I wanna see, wanna see the new launches

Displayed on those - what do you call them? - oh, shelves.

Using old products can get mundane

New ones are required for mixing, matching

Fitting perfectly inside a - what's that word again? - drawerrrr

Re: No Buy July!

I think I've done pretty good this month. Considering I'm such a junkie with makeup! This month:

 

  MAC Rihanna Makeup (doesn't count -it's not Sephora bahaha)

  Ariel Mirror (doesn't count -it's for my daughter when she gets older)

  Skincare mini w/bag (doesn't count  -it was for my mom)

 

Phewf! I'm still doing good for July. Wait, right?? hahaha However, come Aug 1st my order will be placed because my cart is loaded! hahaha... Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Hahaha, doesn't count, it's not Sephora -- too funny!

Re: No Buy July!

I just completed the process of talking myself out of getting Marc Jacob collection NOW......cuz I realized I had 3 big beauty orders this month. It's not a limited edition, so I won't lose anything by getting it next month when the whole collection's here.

 

I feel......kind of proud of myself?

Re: No Buy July!

As an eyeshadow junkie, I wasn't really drawn to any of the palettes. Maybe it's because I couldn't justify $42 for 3 shades. And the colors of the 7-pan palettes have shades I can't see myself reaching for. Maybe I just have to see it in store first Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Same. I feel like (from looking at the pictures) the colors in the palettes aren't unique or colors that I just HAD to have :/

Re: No Buy July!

Maybe they'll have more palette color options when the line hits the store! Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

@beautytester, yes, I think you should be kind of proud of yourself.  By waiting you can also test what you want in store and think longer about what you really want instead of jumping on it just because you get a first chance.  As you say, it's not limited edition.

 

I am not totally proud of myself, because I just placed a Hautelook order.  But I didn't go as nuts as I could have.  They have Clarins on the site today, including their exfoliating toner that I swear is simply not available in this country usually.  Since I want to try it, I was seriously considering ordering it in the UK and sending it to my mother-in-law to bring along when she visits in October.  So yes, I would have bought it later, but this has to be less expensive and less of a hassle.  I also got hydrating toner, as I am going through the other type that I got and one sale the price is right.  (I have used this off and on for years now.)

 

Now I really need to stop having "this is my only chance" things come my way because I really am good to wait otherwise!

Re: No Buy July!

Tell me about it! Whenever companies tack on the words "Limited Edition", my heart races ten times faster lol.

Re: No Buy July!

It's not even just that it's limited edition.  I can and have resisted some of that.  But I knew some things in the Ariel collection would not last and I wanted them back when Cinderella launched.  (Oh, well, I have at least been good about not buying Disney pins this year.  Trying not to be too bad next year when I'm there is much harder.)

 

But when I found the Clarins stuff I wanted and couldn't even put it on a list to buy later because I can't find it in this country, that was it.  (Do not ask my why it isn't here.  It's from France, it's carried by Clarins UK but not Clarins US, because I checked the website when I resisted making a big order earlier.) 

 

Oh well, back to being a good girl again.

Re: No Buy July!

I missed Ariel... oops.

 

I have the other 2 mirrors and don't use them very much, so I think I'm good. Plus, I have a couple of the awesome sparkly Tarina Tarantino mirrors.

 

I did place multiple orders today- bad, bad, bad.

Re: No Buy July!

I wish Sephora never discontinued Tarina's line!

Re: No Buy July!

oh my gosh I never discovered TT until the products were discontinued by Sephora and popped up in the sale section.  I LOOOOooooooooved her stuff!  So sad that Sephora doesn't carry them any more.

Re: No Buy July!

It took a couple of months, but you can buy her line from her website now.

Re: No Buy July!

And also Blush dot com! Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Her pencil liners gave Urban Decay's a run for their money! Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Back from vacation and I still haven't bought any makeup! I was going to cave and buy the Ariel mirror today but I saw that it was already sold out Smiley Sad guess I'll have to wait till it launches in store but I'm super bummed! Anyways Day 19 down woohoo Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Hope you're all refreshed from your vacay! So glad to have you back and going strong still Smiley Happy
