The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I figured we needed an official thread for this.  The goal is to detox from frequent beauty purchases (beauty basics exempt) for one month beginning on March 1st.   This is the place to give tips and tricks on your willpower, support for it, and whatever random cravings that may come your way!

 

Good luck, ladies!

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Check this out.. I have a name thread, righteous! So buy your lippie products now and get it out of your system! 

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I don't know what kind of router you have, but you could always block the basket page ( https://www.sephora.com/basket/basket.jsp) on your firmware if you log into your router settings.  That or I'm sure there's a way to block it on your browser which may even be more simple!  The great Google oracle will definitely be a help in doing this.  While it may seem odd, it'll prevent you from visiting the basket page, and therefore, from hitting the checkout button Smiley Tongue  

 

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Oh that's a hoot! An electroshock mouse!!! LMAO!!

 

So I'm in if I can get the Sephora sun set. I go through sunscreen like water and those little sample size minis are so helpful when I travel. Does that count as a necessity? *hope, hope*

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I'd think that sunscreen (as long as you're replacing an item that you are running low on and must have) seems fair Smiley Happy  I know if I was running low on shampoo or something I'd definitely not want to be left in the lurch! Smiley Tongue

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Of course sunscreen in a necessity! unless of course you have dozens. The things that are allowed are necessities like sunscreen, shampoo/conditioner (only if you are running low now to try something new!), makeup cleanser,nailpolish remover. Stuff like that. I think I wont be checking my email to help. once I see a sale I am a goner. If you are going to try something new I'd suggest getting it before the first. 

 

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Nope, I don't have dozens of sunscreen, I have 2 really large tubes that I use at home (one for face and one for body), but they are really messy to transfer for flying, so it is so nice to have the sample size to tuck in my quart bag.

 

OK, I'm in.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Of course it's a necessity. =P

 

lol, if you are running low on an item, it sounds like a great time to DIY (DIY shampoo anyone?), which also sounds like a recipe for frustration. 

 

I kind of want to join, but if a skincare promo worth $30+ comes out, sorry but I'm gone, so that wouldn't work. o.O

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

It's ok, we'll only hate you forever Smiley Wink lulz!

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Nooooooo T.T

*go splurge on seph....err.....food to comfort myself*

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Good idea Diana! I need to do some winter de-cluttering myself. I have so many things that don't fit now that I've had a baby and that probably never will. Time for a trip to goodwill

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I'm in. For the month of March and until I complete my Project 10 Pan, I wont buy anything until I *completely* run out of something that I use all the time.

 

I posted this before but reminder: You are not doing this to punish yourself for overspending, but to give yourself a chance to appreciate the things you already have.

 

lol some of you guys....its like you are preparing for a marathon or something...."wait! lemme get this first!" I love you guys!

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

The Great Beauty Famine of 2013.

*omnious music*

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Oh no, I hope I don't have to pack up all my belongings in my SUV like the famine in the Grapes of Wrath.
 My beauty closet alone wouldn't even fit in my minivan!

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I'm definitely in gals.  I do have a few gift cards but I'm sure that doesn't count right?  I have shadows galore etc. so I do not need anything for sure....good luck !!!

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

pppshhhhaaa it totally counts! The whole point is to detox from purchasing, even if you have a giftcard. Sneaky, sneaky, sneaky.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I'm in! I won't buy anything unless I run out of it. This shouldn't be hard right? LOL

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Awesome! I'm glad so many of you are ready to detox with me. I feel like I'm in AA and saying, "Hello, my name is Fabz and I'm a makeup-holic." Smiley Tongue

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Lol! This is such a good idea! Im in! Im trying to think if their is anything im just dying to try before Friday

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Well this is going to be extremely hard. I have til tomorrow though! Ahaha this is going to suckk. 

 

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Count me in too!

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I'm in.  Just repurchased my Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion for the millionth time, so I'm set.  Dan will be gone for two weeks in mid-March though, so I may be seriously tempted to at least window shop!

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

You guys have some serious willpower if you're able to window shop! I don't even know the meaning if that phrase especially online. I am going to probably hide my cards from myself so I don't spend anything.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Glad to see that so many of us are participating ^.^  And yeah, I definitely hear you on the window shopping! Smiley Tongue

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I'm thinking we might want to start a new Project 10 Pan thread while on the no buy since we'll likely be rediscovering things we haven't used for a while due to newer purchases and can try to hit pan on.  I know I'm rediscovering my liquid liner (and getting better at putting it on!)

 

And yes, sunscreen IS a necessity.  I have a few.  Smiley Wink
