Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

So, it's time to go on an extended no buy. I have more than I could ever enjoy for quite awhile.  However, if you have gotten to know me a bit- it's going to be easier said than done!

 

So, this thread is hopefully going to be a support group for me- and anyone else who wants to join me in a summer of no buy.

 

The tricky thing is that I've got about 40% of my toner left and maybe 20% of my daytime moisturizer- and I see pan on my HG concealer.  I have to buy the concealer since it's a staple product (and I have used up all of the other concealers that match my skin). I'd like to use up some skincare before repurchasing my daytime moisturizer- but if my skin reacts, I'll revisit the issue.

 

When will the no buy end?  I'm not sure, but fall collections will be on counters, if not on the leaves!

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

I got tracking info for order #2 literally 5 minutes after #1- which is why I'm so boggled.

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

Yeah that happened to me before i placed 2 ordered within 5 mins apart and 1 was here 1 day after the other. But also one time i placed 1 order on Monday and 1 order on tuesday and i received both of them on Friday.

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

We'll see if I still feel "meh" after I get the other order, but it seems to confirm that I should stay on my no-buy.  If an order can't make me  excited, then I shouldn't be ordering anything.

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

My shave creams (yeah, that's plural... I ended up with both the FAB and Whish) should be here today.  Can't wait to shave again!

 

Ironically, I'm not overly thrilled with the  "loves" that I bought- mostly blushes- so I'm happy to settle into the no-buy for awhile.

 

And I'm shocked at how long my Shiseido has lasted! I never would've thought that I had more than a month of daytime moisturizer left.

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

OK ladies, help!

 

I just saw swatches of the Fall 2013 Chanel polishes- and I'm already one collection behind (I want want want Starlet, Paparazzi, and Cinema).

 

It's literally taking every ounce of willpower not to just whip out the credit card and buy 6 polishes right now. 

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

Scratch that.

 

My fingers are twitching over 7 polishes (3x Fall, 4x current collection) and the rumored... wait for it... olive green mascara. *swoon*

STOP!!!!!! PUT THE WALLET AWAY!!!!!  

 

um...sorry starletta that was all i could think of.  i'm terrible at this no-buy thing....

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

Google the new polishes in particular. I swear there was a puddle of drool on my keyboard.

 

New shades: Mysterious, Elixir, Alchimie

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

NO GOOGLE!  PUT THE GOOGLE AWAY!

 

I actually bought some of the discontinued Sephora polishes the other day for $1 each.  I was surprised at how easy they are to apply, with the wider brush (similar to Dior) and if i'm very careful, only one coat is needed!  

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

I'm at that point where I almost elusively buy Chanel and Dior, but keep my Julep subscription.
