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!

You are too funny! Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Good for you on continuing! I will be joining you.

Re: No Buy July!

I'm trying to watch my budget as well, but I know there are a couple of things I just WANT lol. 

Re: No Buy July!

I wasn't planning any hauls, trying to wait until the 20% off, but when I read about the 3x points for VIBs in August I put a bunch of stuff in my shopping cart.  Then I went through and thought about which items could wait until later.  I ended up with a much smaller list of mostly utilitarian items, like new beautyblenders (mine are coming apart), a sulfer mask, a corally lip liner (to match all the coral lippies I bought in the spring), and maybe that MUFE Sens'eyes makeup remover that everyone raves out. 

Re: No Buy July!

I'm thinking of only purchasing the one or two limited edition items during the bonus points week and then saving the other few more expensive items for 20% off. I know I need to repurchase Chloe. I went through that bad boy so quicky! lol

Re: No Buy July!

LOL and we know LE is your weakness! Smiley Very Happy  So great that you used up your Chloe!  Replacing empties makes me feel a lot better than buying more stuff that I already have too much of (like blush, eyeshadows) and will never use up!

Re: No Buy July!

Hahaha you know me too well! I find I always go back to Chloe not mattering if I try and branch out to other scents. And one can never have too much eyeshadows Smiley Very Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Ooh, what's this 20% off thing? I vaguely remember last summer there was an additional 20% off promo, but it was just for sale items -- is that it, or is there some other type of 20 off promo to look forward to?

Re: No Buy July!

I think its towards the later holidays, sephora doesn't tell us exactly when.

Re: No Buy July!

Oh I forgot. Didn't Sephora do a $15 off $50 purchase last year as well closer to the holidays?

Re: No Buy July!

Usually they do, yes! I think the VIB one was $20 off, but I'm not 100% on that. 

Re: No Buy July!

Traditionally there has been a sale in October or more recently November, that is 20% off. It began as a Friends and Family sale, but Sephora seems to have a weird relationship with customers about it the past couple years. They claim it won't happen, nope, just for actual friends and family of employees and they will have unique codes to give out personally and tried to offer a paltry 10% off and some promo codes after people had been waiting all year for this sale and it was a big fuss, haha. We'll see what the new drama is this year.

Re: No Buy July!

I remember the whole Sephora employees' friends and families only fiasco last year! Honestly, not sure if it was worth tracking down a code for, but if you've build a good enough of relationships with the employees at your local Sephora stores, they'll gladly give you one of the ten or so postcards they've received from the company.

Re: No Buy July!

As a part of my one buy, I am debating between Tarte maracuja c-brightener eye treatment or a matte palette (either the Kat Von D ladybird or Too Faced matte eyeshadow collection).

Re: No Buy July!

As an eyeshadow junkie, my vote goes to the palette Smiley Wink

Re: No Buy July!

I know me too! But, I have been noticing more dark circles under my eyes.  Maybe I will get a sample of the eye cream and go for the palette.

Re: No Buy July!

Or cash in 100 pts for a deluxe sample of eye cream Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

If you get a sample of the eye cream then you sort of get both Smiley Very Happy!

Re: No Buy July!

That was exactly what I was thinking!

Re: No Buy July!

Go for it! Lol and if you're still not sure after you use the sample get another sample!

Re: No Buy July!

Enabler alert: get a sample of Shiseido's WrinkleResist 24 Eye cream at the same time. It has done miracles with my eyes when no other product has!

Re: No Buy July!

Kat Von D ladybird! It's so pretty and since I can't buy anymore eyeshadow I'll live vicariously though you Smiley Very Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Flowerbomb31 on Youtube reviewed your Guerlain blush! Just thought you should know Smiley Wink

Re: No Buy July!

OMG why does this month have 31 days!! I can do this... I can do this.

Re: No Buy July!

OK, I need that Laura Mercier powder.

 

However, I know what the 4x points are going to coax me into finally buying:

 

 

I'll probably pick this up the next time I'm in store since I love my MUFE so much and have been super impressed by Sephora Collection's quality lately:

 

And I'm also digging this set for some reason:
