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

I just glanced at your question and thought you said "How is everyone FARTING?" LOL!

 

I had to stop for a sec and go, "Wait, why in the world would Fabz ask that?!?!?" Smiley Tongue

 

 

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

*jetpacks off* Nothing to do here >.>

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Yeah, hahah, nothing to see here folks, just my brain not working properly! Keep it moving! Smiley Very Happy

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

LOL oh lylysa! That made me giggled

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

SP-YSL-Spring-2013-5201.jpgI have already weakened, I had to purchase the YSL Arty Stone Palette, I have been lusting over it for a while.  Shame on me, March is a bad month as well, several friends' Birthdays.  Oh......no more for the rest of the month!  I promise Smiley Wink

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

That YSL palette is really pretty and perfect for spring! The pink and blue remind me of the color combination I've been wearing lately (thebalm coma patient and police man...pastel lilac and baby blue).

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

beautytester---Oh wow! I seem to go through powders the fastest, its the only makeup item that I use everyday. Eye/Lip/Cheek products I like to change up often, but my face makeup is pretty much the same everyday.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Day 5 complete. So far, so good. Am I looking at things online? Yes. Am I *buying* things? No.

 

Okay I'm good. There's nothing that I *need* either, might even make it the entire month without having to restock on a completely out of item. Yay!

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

This is awesome news! I'm glad you are doing so well. So far I've had to restock on face wipes but other than that I'm running solid. I wanted to buy some fancy shampoos because they had a sale and I was going to excuse it as a "restock" because I'm almost out of it. I knew it was only an excuse though and will wait for it to run out before I purchase more. If the sale isn't there anymore then oh well. SALES ARE THE ENEMY

 

 

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Oh I go through powders the fastest, too. As in I only hit the pan on 2 things in the 7 yrs I wore make up, you can see 50% of the bottom on the powder while the other one (concealer) you can only see a dot (but the texture changed so it's unusable now).

 

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

swfupload_20955857442239972.jpgI used to be like that, have only a few makeup items and barely use even those. I got into makeup pretty late, age 18-19, most of my friends wore *tons* of makeup since middle school. Makeup is the only artistic outlet I have. I cant draw, paint, or build anything. Ikea is my worst nightmare if it has to be assembled, I just dont have the skills. On a good day, I can draw a good happy face lol but thats about it. But I can do makeup. And its fun.

 

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

wow so pretty!!!!!!!! I started wearing makeup when I was 22 or 23.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

My first time wearing make up was Senior picture, then prom, then graduation. I was a proud nerd, and I've seen so many terrible make up looks on others that I have no regrets/envy about starting make up so late. I do wish I had started wearing SPF earlier tho, seeing as I used to live in Texas.

 

Lol, looking at shopping list helps because it helps the excitement fade faster since half of the time I'm attracted by pretty packagings.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

oh if you meant first time ever put on make-up not started wearing it often then it was senior prom for me too. But that was all. I did not wear makeup for my highschool graduation.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

That palette is gorgeousss! It reminds me of Easter! LOL but its prefect for spring. Loving the green on the top left.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Day 5 Accomplished! Although I don't know if I can say that for today! A friends birthday is this weekend and I know she's been wanting the Tarte's lipstick in Inspired. Hopefully I can wak in, buy it, and walk out without buying anything for myself!

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Good luck - It is possible. Smiley Tongue

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I DID! I got her two lipsticks! The Tarte in Pure, (she actually wanted Pure not Inspired) and I also toss in Korres Natural Pink for her. I also stop to check out the Pantone Collection, lets just say maybe after March, I'll be opening my wallet for the eyeliner set! LOL

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Fall in love again with my old stuff. Honestly haven't used my brushes for weeks, so it's time to wash the accumulated stack with make up on it for waaaay too long. I rarely use the Hello Kitty Kabuki brush cuz the large head seems uneccessarily clumsy

since I haven't used it in month and forgot to wash it, I forgot the actual brush tips are pink and not beige! It looks so absolutely adorable clean with such cute shade of pink and feel sooooo soft. I definitely need to use it more.

 

ps. Gosh, Ithe Rich Text just won't let me post pictures and I have to go into HTML and write it in. Geez BT, be done with the glitches already.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Love all things Hello Kitty, that kabuki brush is absolutely adorable.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Gosh that is adorable! Thank goodness I already love my TF retractable kabuki or else I would have to snag that one!
