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 use the compact version of Meteorites already.

 

I dunno, I prefer to buy the brush offered with an item when possible.

Re: No Buy July!

True, and who can really resist a pink brush? Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

I really want one of these (note: I'm aware that they aren't the best brushes, but dangit they are red):

 

Dior Summer Blush Brush

 

Shu Uemura 18R

Re: No Buy July!

I remember that Dior one! It sold out like hotcakes!

Re: No Buy July!

Shhh... not necessarily. If it's still in stock a couple of places, it'll be mine Friday.

Re: No Buy July!

Check the Dior site Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Gahhhh, I didn't know it but there has been a red-bristled blush brush sized hole in my life. 

Re: No Buy July!

Yes, yes there has been rikkie. You need these!

Re: No Buy July!

Aargh, I want to justify it to myself by saying I could use it with the Guerlain meteorites, it sounds like it would work nicely, not quite so stiff/scratchy as the Guerlain brush and nice and big for sweeping across the face. 

 

Is it less than $55 anywhere or do I just need to suck it up? It's really tempting! Red and black is kind of my weakness, it doesn't really matter what it is, if you make it red and black then I probably need it, hahaha.

Re: No Buy July!

Did you ever see Sephora's red and black blush and bronzer brush? Smiley Wink

Re: No Buy July!

I forgot about that one! I'm not big on double ended brushes though, I'm always worried about squashing one end or the other. I don't know how to store them to avoid it and not have them rolling all over the place. Any ideas?

Re: No Buy July!

I'm not a fan of double ended brushes either, and have been looking for the perfect storage method. Brush rolls destroy whichever end I stick in first. So for now I've resorted to just Ziplocking all of my double ended brushes together, and so far it's worked out better than I thought! LOL

Re: No Buy July!

@poshified- 

I'm curious about that lovely LM illuminator. Is it a powder or a cream? I can't tell from the product page.

Re: No Buy July!

It's powder Smiley Happy. I believe it's similar in consistency to the Estee Lauder illumination powder gelee that everyone was raving about a while back.

Re: No Buy July!

It looks so cool!  I'm completely unable to resist face powders Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

I can't either! Especially when it's so prettily designed Smiley Very Happy

Re: No Buy July!

LOL...I don't qualify for this challenge..

Hi, My name is Amira...and I'm addicted to make-up!!!!

My bday is in August...so maybe I'll try this in September Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Hello AmiraHall! My birthday's in August too which is why I'm doing this in July! haha. Must exercise self-control in August Smiley Very Happy

Re: No Buy July!

I love that this thread always has new pictures of new products... I'm not on a no buy but it's giving me too many ideas!! haha

Re: No Buy July!

 

OMG I KNOW! I made a huge order yesterday out of stuff I discovered on this "no-buy" thread. 

I'm thinking about trying a no-buy of my own. Maybe starting August 1st and lasting until I try all unused purchases at least once.

Re: No Buy July!

This thread enabled me into buying that Tarte palette.

 

However, I'll have to post my empties on here. Y'all will be impressed. I may buy a lot, but I'm using up a lot.
