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

@Starletta8 - I totally support you in this no buy endeavor, and I think I will also join you!    There is strength in numbers!!!!!

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

Yes, I totally agree! Strength in numbers is the way to go. I definitely should be holding back on making any purchases for a while. I've got more makeup and skincare than I know what to do with. I feel like a lot of us really should go shopping in our own makeup collections and re-discover some things that maybe we haven't used in a while to help keep up the no-buy will power. Isn't there a thread somewhere on here that's about that very topic??

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

There is.

 

I'm already trying to figure out what my treat will be for making it and what my punishment will be if I crack. I feel like Guerlain Meteorites should be involved.

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

Lol I think there are quite a few of us who need a support group!

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

Well I failed. Smiley Sad

 

I found 2 awesome Ecotools kits at Big Lots that were $4.50 and $5.00 and I love them sooo much! I will use every single brush, really do *need* more brushes, found the perfect highlighting brush in one of the sets, and both kits came with either a makeup bag or a cup for storing brushes in.

 

Am I allowed a start over?

 

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

Let me be clear: this isn't meant to be a punishment, and we're going to walk the fine line between supporting and enabling!

 

I just need to figure out how to be able to buy legitimate staple things when I'm actually out (cotton rounds, nail polish remover, makeup remover wipes, etc) without buying all sorts of things I don't need.

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

kudos to you!!! wow I'm impressed your going on a no buying makeup wallet cleansing mission!!! I couldn't do it...at least I need more time...I failed @ project 10 pan in the first four days !!! I am no where near ready for this but I encourage you on your ongoing quest to not buy makeup until fall! you'll be able to buy some pretty pennies worth of fall geared makeup when you get to the finishline just remember that & hang in there!

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

You can do it Starletta8!  It is going to be challenging but I know you can. I like the idea of having a goal in mind, that way, it is something to work towards Smiley Happy

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

Exactly.  Enjoying things, saving money... yeah, those are great but I enjoy playing with new products so I don't want to feel deprived.

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

I am in.
