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.

Lol...I've got him as my wallpaper on my phone..Gorge shot of him hopping outta the shower or something? Makes me drool every time....I'm not one to go gaga over celebs, but I could see how someone would wanna stalk him..I probably shouldn't say that 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.

Makes me feel like one of those ridiculously giddy 15 yo Beiber fans or something..Gaah, I'm too old to be getting stupid in the head or twitterpated like that lmao..Yes, Tom Hardy and Clay Matthews are my celeb wanna be future ex husbands haha.

I feel like that too! El hubs and I have a list of people that it'd be ok to hook up with if we ever met them, and ohh, I dunno, they wanted to. That's a totally different universe/reality whatever lol.

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.
