  1. I love this low buy I have been doing as it means far more to me than just not buying things I don't need. It is about using my stash, getting organized, and using what I have instead of buying something new. Thank you for starting it, I love the idea
  2. Here are my day 31-40 goals: Use 3 masks Pick out a book to start reading for February Finish at least 1 product in the shower Throw away at least 5 items Use up at least 2 other items (not a mask or something in the shower)
  3. Here's my progress on my goals: Use at least 3 face masks DONE Finish at least 1 sample in the shower DONE Throw away at least 5 times DONE Something about 3 or 4 empties or something? DONE And probably something about organizing my skincare, which got done, but I still haven't added expiration dates to my spreadsheet. NOT DONE And here's my progress so far: 19 Empties 2 purchases not allowed per my rules (not sweating this though, just getting back into focusing on only making allowed purchases, or none at all) 1/3 video games purchased 2 books read 18 items thrown away 54 new products tried from stash
  4. I love the grater blade on a food processor! Cheese works well, basically anything that you would normally grate will work. It's so fast too, the only downside for me is washing it because my food processor is huge. Like a big 13 cup one.
  5. Uh yes. An external hard drive is definitely necessary and you'll be happy you have your computer backed up if heaven forbid something goes wrong.
  6. I'm making good progress on my stash! I finished 4 products today alone, and my total is up to 18 for the month. I think I'll be adding a goal for myself in the next set of days to finish a sample/product at least every 3 days. It doesn't take long when you focus on one product, and use it everyday. Especially when you focus on samples and foils!
  7. I think my goals were: Use at least 3 face masks: 2 down! Finish at least 1 sample in the shower: Still not done, those pesky things are taking forever! Throw away at least 5 times: DONE! 14 things, in the trash Something about 3 or 4 empties or something?: 3 empties so far! And probably something about organizing my skincare, which got done, but I still haven't added expiration dates to my spreadsheet.
  8. Aww dangit, I remembered to write down my goals for the last 10 days, but didn't write these down. I think I remember them though. I'm on track. Mostly. I've bought a few things that weren't allowed, but I'm putting much more emphasis on using my stash, so I feel good about getting through what I've already got.
  9. Sigh. I am getting the whole set. It's way more than I wanted to spend, so I'm going to sell off whatever I don't like. I am glad the full set is available for a certain amount of time, and is not limited by a certain number of them. Good for people in different time zones.
  10. One trick is to use very little primer. Make sure it's completely even. I haven't tried many mattes over different primers, but using a minimal amount could help.
  11. Foil Me is already a best of 2015 product for me. I use it almost every time I do my makeup now, it makes it much less messy, easier to clean my brushes (I just run them under water and pat dry after every use), and makes my shadows look amaze. It is like the product you need if you're still trying to get the hang of loose shadows. And even if you're a pro, using it means no fall out! Ever! I can do my face makeup before my eyes, and I have no messy problems.
  12. Cake: Sixteen92 Red Velvet Hot Chocolate Haus of Gloi and Solstice Scents have some cake scents for spring Fruit: ​Black Violet Celebration, Lilikoi, Red Lotus, Candy Rocket (coming soon) Haus of Gloi Imp, Komodo (Summer collection) Beguiled (Summer), Sanctum (Summer), Zazz (Summer), Litchi Milk Tea Ten Three Labs Artificial Angels, Where the Glory in the Crowning Darling Clandestine Small Saga, Pyrotechnik, Morderteile Kelah
  13. The lids of the MoC set fit on the empty jars I have, so I just transferred them. They're so much better, so if you have jars, I recommend doing that!
  14. Here's my shopping list: ​Perfume samples of all scents First Blush and Who Needs Love Pumpkin Butters, probably minis Possibly First Blush whipped soap if I want to break my low buy rules All the Butterbombs All the lip balms And 3 hair oils I'm splitting with friends
  15. The only other thing I can think of for the spoiler is that there has been interest expressed in making Idris Elba the next James Bond...perhaps trying to Entice him into the role?
  16. Use at least 3 masks DONE Inventory my newly organized skincare products NOT DONE Get started on organizing my stuff in the spare bedroom, which includes nail polish and a bunch of FCS stuff. STARTED Finish at least 2 samples/products in my shower currently, there are quite a few nearing the end. Finished 1, threw away 1 Organize my stuff I have to review DONE Finish the body butter on my bedside table DONE Throw away/give away at least 5 things I don't want anymore Almost, I threw away 4 Not bad! I did almost everything! We're 20% done already!
  17. I already know I'm going to be a little short on my goals for this 10 day section, since I'm not at home to finish them before the 20th, but it's all going well! I did make a few allowed purchases, and my spreadsheet is going well. I wore two new things today even though I didn't do my makeup, so that was good too.
  18. Not really. Even the Black Friday sale they waiting to announce until day of, was only 10% off.
  19. I finally did my makeup today, and I had some perfumes I hadn't tried yet, so 7 new products today! I decided to make a spreadsheet with all 100 days on it, with columns for each of my goals. I figure as long as I can put something under one of the columns for each day, I'm doing well! For instance, I have columns for organization, new products used, empties, throw away/give away, etc. So far, I have at least one thing for everyday, so success!
  20. When LE was open for Black Friday she had a product that was made to revive dried out brow pomades, so I assume that will be back once the full inventory is back.
  21. First one that comes to mind is Darling Girl, she has a lot of pastels, but I don't know how many are matte. Actually I do, because she has a link for all her mattes! Other than that though, I can't think of many matte pastels from indies. Blackbird has the mattes, but no pastels.
  22. The descriptions all look the same...so no, nothing for me.
