Be strong! I bought two lip balms yesterday at Walgreen's. A lot of the Yes! To products were clearance, so I spent $1.50.. managed to get my liquor and soda on sale and off to a big barbecue and fireworks show. Plus, I did the Zoya deal...I guess total I spent $10 on beauty products in the last two days? Just trying to remember.. "low buy; do I really need this?"

So that's a total of $4 spent thus far this month (and I just did the free Zoya promo, which totally doesn't count, since, hello--FREE)

 

You can always contact Catalina and they will mail you the RR.

You can reach Catalina at 1-888-8coupon: Have your receipt in hand and state which items in your purchase should have triggered a RR. Catalina will review your transaction and will mail you a RR, within two to three weeks, if you should have received one.

I keep telling myself that I don't want that NARS Joie de Vivre palette, even though I do want it hella bad. I feel like I don't use palettes nearly as often as I should, since I store them separately from my train and it's a pain to get them out. Gah. Don't need it, don't need it, don't need it.

I want it too, lol. I don't have any NARS blushes so I feel like it would be perfect for me, but i have so many other blushes, its kind of pointless, you know? blah so tempting.

I have a buttload of blushes, too! I know value-wise it would be better to get the palette, but I would much rather finish one blush that I have, and then buy a single of a blush that I want.

I've been telling myself the same things...I'm still wanting to explore more brands/products, but if I dig around in my stash, I find stuff I've never even used or swatched! Trying to stay strong and not give in.

I almost ordered from haute look. I ended up selling my foot soak from julep & regret it. They had one for super cheap, along with the pedi creme (skipped that month). I didn't order. Then went on ebay to see if I could find one cheaper. I did & bid on it, thankfully someone outbid me...yikes!

I can't wait either! Tom Hardy is amazing, and I'm excited to see him as Bane. Still too long until it comes out. I might see Magic Mike again, just for funsies and to keep myself occupied until it comes out lol.

I have both! I'd say go with Hervana. It's a cool orchidy color that I think would look nice on a variety of skin tones. Sugarbomb is super shimmery, and doesn't have a lot of pigmentation. It's not bad if you want more of an effortless blush.

Ohh, gurrrl. I'm kind of in love with Tom Hiddleston, so I totally know where you're coming from with the gaga over celebs thing. It seems so silly to me, but I can't help it! Hahaha.

You've been really, really good for months, so I think you deserved 'em! Plus, getting something that you wanted for months is way different than rash impulse buys. :)

I agree w/ u. Some of the reviews on sugarbomb said that it doesn't show up on tan-darker skin. Thanks for your op. I got the pedi creme & 2 julep polishes for $2.66! So technically, I broke my no buy but its better than the $30 I wanted to spend this morning.

    • You might be in shape otherwise but still have a lump of fat jutting out from under your chin. And we agree, that totally spoils all the photos. But why don't you use makeup to get rid of double chin till such time you lose enough weight to get a chiseled jaw line? So even if you haven't managed to shed all that extra flab yet, but have a party that you just can't miss, don't get upset about the double chin. You can still use makeup cleverly to hide it and look fabulous in all your photos. Here are some makeup hacks that will come in handy:
    • The trick to take care of dry skin is to feed it with moisture. But, there's a drawback, we cannot overfeed it as it may lead to breakouts, acne, and pimples. Therefore, it is important to use the right product that helps to hydrate the skin without much harm.  So how do we combat dry skin?  Here are our favourite and effective product that helps to fight the dry flaky skin.  Cosrx - Hyaluronic Hydra Power Essence Hyaluronic Acid is the king of moisturization and this essence by Cosrx is full of it. It draws water into the skin and immediately moisturizes the dry & depleted skin.  Results: Skin is softer and moisturized, leaving bumpy and dry skin silky smooth. It's excellent for dry to normal skin types.  Some By Mi-H7 Hydromax Moisture Cream The name uses the word hydro max moisture to convey that nothing hydrates better than this! It soothes skin irritation, reduces skin redness and wrinkles. It also has a whitening effect and smoothes rough patches of skin. The 7 types of hyaluronic acid fill in from the deepest layer of the skin and create a barrier so that it can maintain the optimum moisture for a prolonged time. Make sure to use it after cleansing the skin.  -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Face Masks are excellent for providing ample moisture and long term hydration to the skin.  Here are our recommendations: Eunyul- Natural Moisture Mask Pack Lined with green tea extract, the facemask works to provide ample moisture to the skin while the collagen helps to reboot the skin in a short time.  Missha-Airy Fit Sheet Mask (Cucumber) This eco-friendly rice cake sheet mask is 2 times thinner than a normal sheet mask. Cucumber helps to effectively help combat dryness while the thin sheet mask feels airy and lightweight. 
    • People tend to collect an amazing quantity of items over the years. Reasons for keeping items include an emotional attachment, an intention to reuse or fix the items in the future, or a wish to pass them on to others. However, for many items, if you haven't used them in over a year, you probably don't need them. Getting some help from https://www.emop.co.uk/clapham-cleaner/ to get rid of all your rubbish isn't a bad move. Don’t want to do it yourself? These people have you covered. Leave all the heavy lifting work to them. With a professional firm like eMop, you don’t need to worry about the pick-up or disposal of those old items that you don't need any more.
    • In my opinion, Tinder is more like an application for finding a partner for one night. This is completely frivolous for me. If I look for a girl for myself, then I will start browsing serious sites. You can see an approximate review in this source. When a girl talks about marriage, this gives a better chance of a long and serious relationship.
    • Greetings! A variety of t-shirts are in fashion nowadays and I am going to share the most trendy ones: Plain White Tees - If you are thinking that plain white tees are getting out of fashion then you are wrong. Either you wear tuck tees with jeans or full sleeve plain white tees with jackets. They always look cool. Graphic T-Shirts - Yes, the craze of graphic tees is increasing not only in public but also among the celebs. Even the big brands like Nike and Gucci are also offering logo tees. You can also see some unique women graphic tees here. Colorful Dye T-Shirts - On the other hand, girls are also crazy to wear Dye t-shirts. You can see the following ones in this regard. What other tees trends do you think should females must follow in this regard? I am waiting for your responses and suggestions.
