July No Buy Alumni!

Hey all my No Buy BBFFs!  Or is that NBBBFFs? LOL!  Just curious now that it's August, how are you all doing?  I know some of us are waiting for the Aug 12-18 points event, and others plan to continue the no buy, and some will be going on insane shopping sprees.  What's everyone up to?

 

For myself, I already pulled the trigger on some LORAC clearance items that I just couldn't resist.  The mint edition set that came out at Ulta this spring and that I forced myself NOT to purchase back then showed up for only $17 on the LORAC site!  Then to go the whole hog I also picked up the Red Carpet Reveal set (hoping it's not too stale since this is an older item).

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

Also, I agree with the rest of the folks -- your new icon is too adorable!

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

wait was that your Asian cosmetics haul that you posted in the other thread???  whoa that was fast! Smiley Very Happy

 

for the mint kit, I remember swatching it at Ulta in the spring and just loving the little bag that came with it!  Normally they feel kinda cheap but this one is actually little metal links (not just a print) and has a nice heft to it.  I have a fond weakness for adorable makeup bags!

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

your description of the little bag is making me want to cave in and buy it!

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

They've been sitting in my cart for weeks; I had to pull the trigger! hahaha

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

Money is gonna be tight for this/nxt year and I already have plenty of makeup/perfume/skincare to get me through. However, I'll be with my parents that week and since they can't be there for my bday.... *cough*cough*COUGH* ......we will be dropping by a Sephora to just "take a look" .... *cough*hint*nudge*HINT* ...... (that wasn't obvious at all...)

I'm waiting until the fall's % or $$ off to buy my Marc Jacob eyeliner and any potential holiday set I'm dying to get.

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

So far this month I brought:

Anastasia Catwalk palette (only $29!) and drugstore nail polishes.

 

I'm going to buy two Sephora Favorites sets (the lip and eyeliner ones) sometime before the month is over. I hope they don't sell out.

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

Those are gorgeous colors and you cen't beat the price. Nice snag!

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

What do you think of the Catwalk palette? I ordered it lastnight and can't wait to get it. It doesn't come with an instructional guide does it?  I have the Sephora Lip Favorites. It's very pretty!

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

I brought it online - Mine gets delivered on Tuesday. I can't wait to order the Sephora Favorites sets!

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

it does come with an instructional guide. only a few looks, but definitely has a guide on where to start. the shadows are gorgeous and very buttery, so just use a delicate hand to avoid a ton of excess product (the excess is created in the palette, it's not a fall out issue on your face).

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

That's great to hear!  I also found a few tutorials on YouTube that will be helpful. Thank you for your response.  

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

Okay, you all did it to me.  I just purchased the Mint set from LORAC.  I couldn't resist for that price.  

 

I'm still really wanting the Baked Matte Satin Blush from LORAC but figured I'd wait until extra point days.  

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

whew so glad I'm not the only one!  but seriously, it's such a steal and I think it was free shipping too!

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

Did you seeeeeeee? More things added to the LORAC sales section today! Smiley Tongue

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

NOOO lol you girls are so bad I swear! Lol

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

I did too!

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

So, I just picked up the false lashes that I had been planning on buying (got salon perfect demi whispies for $3) and just attempted to put them on...thank goodness for practice runs! Anything that could have gone wrong did go wrong! I am not defeated! I will try again!

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

ooh false lashes are so much fun!  keep trying, you'll be batting those long sexy fake lashes before long!

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

Hahaha! I tried to bat them today but it was more like scene from a comedy! Thanks for the encouragement!

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

To Prosopon, aside from good ol' practice, practice, practice, I posted some tips a while back on applying false lashes you might find handy!

Re: July No Buy Alumni!

Thank you so much! I am going to definitely try again, maybe tomorrow, and use your recommendations. I need to bookmark that post!
