Off topic: a real challenge

As I was about to press "confirm" on a purchase of new blush on It Cosmetics, I realized that I have absolutely no need for yet another blush and decided that I need a makeup purchasing diet. Maybe it would be fun to go on this diet with some others (hint, hint). 

 

Who wants to shop our own collection for the next 30 days to see what new stuff we can create without buying anything? Maybe we can even post some pics. 

 

anyone brave enough? Smiley Happy

FAVORITE MOVIE EVER. Heart

Re: Off topic: a real challenge

First quasi success story: I started using my jumbo size bare minerals setting powder today. Typically, I buy the hydrating one- I got this one in a kit over the holidays. I took a good look at myself in the mirror yesterday and said "I look pink"... Well, the original mineral veil is pink; the hydrating one is yellow. Immediately, I think "I'll reorder the right one". Well, can't do that on a no buy, so I went to "the stash". In my travel bag, I found a pretty new jar of the hydrating one, and I also found 2 deluxe samples of finishing powder, one by MUFE and the other one is from Tarte. Problem solved! It felt good to shop the stash!

Re: Off topic: a real challenge

Ok, I caved! I am weak! I tried! Was just browsing as I am still looking for my mascara HG when I stumbled upon the Kat Von D VIB Early Release and since the rock star set showed up again, I put that in cart as well and hit the buy button! So, I shall start this dang no-buy AGAIN!

 

Re: Off topic: a real challenge

It's just like a diet... You fell off the wagon. I know it's hard! I purposely haven't been looking at merchandise.

Re: Off topic: a real challenge

I already blew my no cosmetics buy Smiley Sad  I bought two Givenchy lipsticks last night that I do not need.  I still have lipsticks that I purchased months ago that I have never even used once.  I don't know why I keep buying makeup products that I do not use.

  

Re: Off topic: a real challenge

Hi Everyone! Man, Hourglass! They put the new Ambient Light Palette out during a NO BUY! I have Dim Light, and I'm telling myself that I'm absolutely fine with just that one, but their website is calling my name! This no buy is harder than I thought. How are you guys doing? I see it's been hard for a couple of folks.

Re: Off topic: a real challenge

I have passed on the Hourglass so far Smiley Wink  I have looked at the Ambient powders in the store, but I have never found one color that seemed like it would work well with my skin.  I still feel oddly compelled to buy it, but so far I have been able to resist by telling myself that it just won't work for me.

Re: Off topic: a real challenge

...it'll probably work for you. I know, I know, this is NOT helpful, but they are really nice little powders! To give you that glow! And they photograph well. I haven't succumbed yet, because I feel like Sephora is waiting to put them up till Friday.  I just have this sneaking suspicion. 

Re: Off topic: a real challenge

Oh lol! What a big help you are Smiley Happy  I have oily skin, and I hate shine on my face.  I have Guerlain Meteorites in a drawer that are over a decade old that I only used once or twice and absolutely hated (they are too pretty to throw in the trash! I've tried lol).  I don't usually highlight my skin because of my larger pores and oiliness.  I am trying so hard to resist them!

Re: Off topic: a real challenge

So far, I haven't noticed a shine. Smiley Happy but I have normal to dry skin. 

Re: Off topic: a real challenge

Too difficult... I am back on the wagon now though. No more....... really....... I swear........ *sob

Re: Off topic: a real challenge

I have fallin' and can't get up ;-)

Re: Off topic: a real challenge

Get back on the wagon Smiley Happy  We all fall, but as long as we keep getting up, we are not defeated (at least I keep trying to tell myself that!).  I never realized how much I buy makeup as a pick-me-up until now.  I always use the skincare items I buy, but makeup is usually an impulse purchase for me.

Re: Off topic: a real challenge

I start my evening on the no-buy then comes the morning and I be d@mned if something isn't new that as come out of course some wonderful lady has to post about it and then opppppsssss, I fall off again somehow ;-)

 

EDIT ... Order since I started the no-buy on 4/1! <hangs head in shame>

Re: Off topic: a real challenge

Lol... You're not on a no buy! 

Re: Off topic: a real challenge

broke my no buy so I could do one last haul....*siiiigh* I regret nothing!

I'm just sad that my sephora was out of the hourglass blush i wanted Smiley Sad

So now i'm going to TRY not to get anything else for the rest of this month. Anything that catches my eye can go on a wishlist. 

Re: Off topic: a real challenge

Which HG did you want? They are lovely. I do have a list too... It's short, but it's a list. 

Re: Off topic: a real challenge

I already have Diffused heat, radiant magenta, and luminous flush, but after watching one of my videos someone suggested I try mood exposure, so I went and swatched it.....and fell in love. 

Highlighted

Re: Off topic: a real challenge

Yeah, Mood is very pretty! I've been eyeing Dim 

Re: Off topic: a real challenge

So I have bought one beauty purchase, but I kinda consider it a necessity (cough-loophole).  I've been covetously lusting after more products since this thread has been started; ONLY 8 DAYS??.  But, I've recommitted to this challenge!
