    July 2013 No/Low Buy Support

    I've only bought a few beauty products, and that was the Anastasia brow wiz and the tweezers. Getting my brows done at the Benefit brow bar was too expensive to do regularly, so I've decided to go back to doing my brows on my own. Hopefully, that's going to be the only beauty stuff all month, unless there's something that I run out of and I absolutely need. Now, if I can just stop buying other random things that I don't need, I'll be all good.

    Ehhh, all in all, not a terrific month. I expected a lot more stuff to be gone, but I only used up a fraction of what I thought I would. Still, better than nothing, right?

    I've been wanting that Ariel palette hardcore, but right before I was about to buy it, I closed the tab. I have so many eyeshadows and palettes already, and there's really no reason for me to get it. I bought the MAC lipstick in flamingo, and my husband bought me Heaux and Riri Boy for our anniversary. That's it, though. I honestly really haven't been tempted by much, to be honest. Maybe I'm burnt out on beauty, or maybe deep down I know I'd rather wait until fall because I just loooove autumn collections. Empties have been going crazy, crazy slow this month. There were so many things that I thought I'd finish up with, but it's looking like that won't be the case after all. I'm trying, though! I'm about to go through my makeup and clear out everything that doesn't work for me, or I really dislike and I know I won't ever use.

    I LOVE that shampoo! It does feel awesome on your scalp, and it's really inexpensive, too. A great deal. I was naughty and I bought several lipsticks from the MAC all about orange collection, and so I'm trying to really, really cut down now on what I buy. I've decided to try and buy only drugstore products if I do buy anything, so I can save a little bit of money that way. Plus, it would really be good for me to kick my habit of buying a ton of high-end stuff!
  6. I got my order and I love everything! Especially the brushes. They're so soft and they apply the product wonderfully. My only regret is not purchasing the rest of them. They're awesome! I also got the time balm foundation and concealer, the nude 'tude palette, the sexy mama powder, and the hot mama powder. I also ordered the put a lid on it eyeshadow primer, but that wasn't in there, unfortunately. I got refunded for it. Which is fine, since I have more eyeshadow primer than I know what to do with... I'm just hoping next time I can pick up the brushes that I didn't get, and they'll have some new items like the Balm Jovi palette and some of those instain blushes. They look gorgeous!

    My guilty pleasure is blush! I have so much blush, and I just keep buying more and more. I think that these next few months, if I do allow myself to buy some items, I'm going to try my hardest to resist buying more blushes. I've also added in a new goal - if I make any purchases (which will hopefully be far and few between), no high end items. Just drugstore. I need to get into the habit of buying less expensive stuff.

    I've decided to go on an extreme low buy for the next 3 months. I think I'll allow myself to pick up a few of the Rimmel Apocolips, but that's it! I'll probably hold off on those for quite a while, too. Until September, I'm going to be hardcore concentrating on using up way, way more than I purchase.
  9. Now I'm wishing I had picked up that as well! Everyone raves about it. I'm still waiting on my order to even ship, can't wait!

    I'm a bit late to this, but here's everything I used up in March and April! I'm hoping to clear out some more stuff, hopefully some actual makeup items in May. All in all, not too bad for the past two months. Here's to clearing out more!

    Ohhh, those kittens are adorable!!! I'll trade you a bunch of makeup for one! I want another one so bad. I think if my husband were to tell me, "if you don't buy ANY makeup or beauty stuff for six months, you can get a kitten or a corgi" that would ensure that I have a successful no-buy.
  13. I was bummed that I missed out on the thebalm's 50% off sale, and I was also sad that they didn't have any of the instains, but still, there was a ton of stuff that I've had my eye on for ages. I got the concealer, foundation, two brushes, and the nude 'tude palette. Glad I saw this thread a few days ago.

    I'm giving myself 3 items from the upcoming MAC summer collection, and that's it. Maybe 4 if I'm really, really good until then. After that, the month will be focused on not buying anything else!

    I got mine, but it took forever! I'm really happy it's limited to one per order, so people can't go crazy and buy like, 8 or something. I hope I got in on time and I don't get a cancellation.
