Post in Besides Beauty

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!

LOL

sephoramusthave you and your pictures LOVE IT

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Hehe I finally figured out how to post pix from the internet onto here without having to save it to my computer first, so I've been having fun with it. Smiley Very Happy

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Man, nice gift giving!!!!

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I haven't been able to decide which Benefit blush to purchase. I love their packaging for them and would love one but I just haven't been able to choose. Any recommendations for a first timer with fair skin?

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

It depends on what you're looking for, if you want a very subtle, almost highlighting shade to brighten your complexion, Dandelion is the way to go.

 

For something more pink or peach, but still subtle, try Hervana or Sugarbomb. Both have a couple of shades in the box so you can mix a balance of color.

 

If you're wanting a quick pop of color in a good neutral shade, Coralista is a great color.

 

If you want more pink with shimmer, Bella Bamba is the way to go.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Thank you I have been stalking Dandelion for a while actually so maybe I'll give it a try.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

It's super sheer and very pretty, perfect for that subtle enhancement to your complexion, especially if you're going for a basic "no make up look" with just that, a hint of gloss, and mascara!

 

Wait...wasn't this thread about NOT buying stuff??? Smiley Tongue

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

YAY!  Just Finished up my Balancing Moisturizer today, and will probably finish up my old lip balm pot by Saturday as well as my hand cream! If I were doing project 10 pan, I'd be 3 down and 7 to go ^.^  Also I think I may be nearing the bottom of my serum, but I can only tell by weight on that one unfortunately >.>

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

OK. Heeelo is dis anyone's puppy or just a pic?? Huh?

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

moregun89------ Ohhhh do the project 10 pan with me!! Puuuleeezze? I've feel like I'm the only one posting in there, its like I'm talking to myself. I have 3 more products to go but I am noticing that its mostly skincare that I'm using up...and makeup is what I'm really supposed to be working on (which I am, it just takes awhile). But if I did a makeup only no-buy it would take me at least 6 months to use up 10 products...and I dont want to go that long without buying nothin'. Smiley Sad

 

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Okeee fine Smiley Tongue  I'm getting close to finishing a lot of things, or what feels like a lot so why not Smiley Tongue

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

YAY! Oh and day 7 accomplished.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

ONE WEEK! *celebrates!*

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

We should throw ourselves a party once this is done!

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I'm doing proj 10-pan, except in the finishing product thread cuz I can't find the 10pan one. I'm done with 4/6. Grrrr, I need to remember to use up the other 2. The masks are gonna be a bit difficult since I only use those 1-2x a week.

 

Oh I'm sure we are gonna have a party, as in a sephora purchasing party for those who are bursting to buy. =X

 

That puppy pic is from google. Me no can haz pet, sadly.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I really want the new burts bees hydrating mask. My skin is dry right now, and every single mask I own is a clay mask which would just dry my skin out even more so no thanks. I have a couple more sample packets of the mask from tata harper, which I like...its a gel mask though, and not moisturizing. Its been at least a week since I've used it though...will try to use it tomorrow.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I will post there for my next 10-pan set (well, 10-skincare set).

 

Have you ever tried oats/yogurt/honey mask? I was super tempted to buy Fresh Rose, but manage to talk myself out of it, partially because I really enjoyed that DIY mask. It's great at hydrating (honey/yogurt) and mattifying (oats/honey).

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I havent ever tried a DIY mask. I've used skincare with those ingredients though. I know that I've used 2 face creams by Korres, one was yoghurt, and one was honey, and I've tried a oats bar soap cleanser (which I hated because it scratches my hands raw every time I tried to lather up).

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I heard somewhere that a honey only mask is amazing. I have never tried it but I'm nervous to be so sticky... I'm a texture kind of person and that is not my fav. It may be nice to try is since I just purchase a HUGE jug of honey at cosco. Anyone try the honey mask ? was it as good as I've heard ?
