Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

It had a lot to do with knowing that I had to come back to this thread and confess any wrongdoing on my part hahaha.

 

Thank you guys for keeping me accountable!!!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

WooooHooooo Joannimation! WOW! Very impressive!!!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

No buy until my trip on May 23rd! Oh my gosh I'm going to go nuts. Stay strong ladies!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Oh well, I guess my max is always 2 days. I managed 6 days with no Sephora purchases, but since I`m starting over with cosmetics and have to find skin care that will work for me, I ended up doing another purchase today.

 

Unfortunately, as much as I don`t want spend for a while, I still need to find a concealer that will work for me as well as a bb cream and for the face care I need day and night eye cream and moisturizer as well as a serum... So I'm back to getting carried away and trying to get value sets that will help me discover the best products for my skin.

I wish I was stronger, but I guess most of the girls trying the no-buy challenge have been on the "buy mode" for a while and have their supply of products! I still don't have all the basics so I guess I'll have to join the challenge once I have it covered! I'm so disappointed in myself, though Smiley Sad

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Yeah emmy89 a no-buy is hard to do with so many pretties around, hard to resist! 

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Found one of the lipsticks I lost so I don't have to rebuy ityay! 

 

I am going to return my Monarch palette either today or tomorrow, so I'll either return it or exchange it for something else. If I do the goal will be not to spend any more money then the cost of the palette if I do the exchange. I'm sure I'll be ok though. 

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Glad you found the lipsticks! Hoooray!!!!!

Braver than me, to scared to go into store!!! I can't be trusted right now! Even though I really need to do a swatch to find replacement for my NARS het loo lip pencil!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Happy Sunday Beauties!!!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Happy Sunday to you hackney! Stay strong! I have been resisting the urge to shop. Thus far! Lol

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

WoooHoooo! Me too - staying strong! But goodness gracious!!! 

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Starting my no-buy today and aiming to get to May 31!  If all goes well I might extend into June a little bit, but I probably shouldn't get ahead of myself.

Thanks for the encouragement to start!!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Helloshadetertiary! Welcome aboard! We are a great bunch of Beauties and very supportive! Come on in and have a seat, I have added you to the list up above!!!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Thanks!  I'm excited to participate and I'm hoping this will help me be accountable!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Yes, having this thread helps to keep me accountable!!! The shame of saying I fell off the wagon keeps me honest to the no-buy LOL LOL

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

If I missed anyone who wants to be listed above in the list, please let me know! Yep, we have resorted to put it in writing to 'shame' ourselves!!!! LOL!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Can I revise my no-buy with more specific terms? I think this will hold me accountable with more firm dates set in place! 

 

I want to do April 22nd-July 17th. Resume no-buy July 22nd-Sept 30th. 

 

Only allowing myself to replenish basics like face wash,  face wipes, cotton pads etc. and holding myself to only buying the same stuff I am using now, no experimenting with fancy/different products. 

 

The only thing I want to buy during this time frame: Sun Celebration Bronzer and Clarins Lip Balm Crayon because I have a discount. I decided I don't want the sun kit. 

 

If I buy anything else, please shame me! lol. I need the accountability! 

 

 

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Got it!!! Modifying now! Let me know if I put it down right!!

Re: NO-BUY CHALLENGE 2014!

Awesome! You got it! Now to stick to it....
