I'm bursting out of my storage set up. I've been buying a lot of MAC, I've also picked up some NYX, L'Oreal, and Wet n Wild. Over the past couple of months, I've spent approx $400 (that includes my MAC Pro discount of 40%). So I'm putting myself on an absolute no-buy. I'm going to start off with a month. I don't need anything at all - not mascara, eyeliner, lipstick... NOTHING. I'm not even close to running out of anything so there's no reason for me to buy anything at all. Wish me luck! and good luck to you all!

I get them on eBay.  I'm planning to bid on a lot of 10 on Sunday.  I really want to win, but I kinda hope I don't.

Two major successes for me yesterday. Stila was having an incredible deal through GMA and I was so tempted to order it. However, I sat back and realized I didn't want it because it included products I had been wanting, but simply for the thrill of the deal. I nearly broke down last night and ordered the BH Cosmetics 120 palette 3rd edition because they had a half off sale. I have been wanting it for months, but I can get it for roughly the same price on Amazon, so I opted out of it. I was literally seconds from putting in the order. I'm proud of myself though. The thrill of succeeding much outweighs that initial high from a makeup purchase. :)

Good job, go you!

 

I also cancelled my order for the Chuck Taylors. It made me sad, but my phone just bit the dust, so buying a new of of those has to come first. :(

After hearing that HauteLook had Julep products I almost caved. But after looking at all the polish I realized I have at least one in each set so I didn't buy anything. I am just going to hold out for a mystery box from Julep if they have another one this month.

I was going to cave but they ran out of the color I wanted. Saved again. I need to stop trying to be bad.

That's not too bad. How do you like the bitten stains? Are they moisturizing?

 

I've been wanting to try deva curl for months. Though I don't know if anything will tame this frizz!

So far I really like them. Frenzy is by far the most color pay off, Desire is really close to my own lip color so there is only a slight color shift. The balm portion is really good, it doesn't sit on my lips but really soaks in, which is great. I tend to lick my lips a lot so I have also noticed there is no taste.

Thanks! They have so many pretty colors but I worried it would make my lips dry. I lick mine a lot too so they are usually pretty dry anyway.

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. 

 

 

i'm nearly completely obsessed with Tom Hiddleston right now.  he's in Detroit filming some vampire movie which i'm certain will send me right over the edge.

and this is how i need to be thinking all month!!  

 

THE THRILL OF SUCCEEDING (RESISTING) OUTWEIGHS THAT INITIAL HIGH OF A MAKEUP PURCHASE.

 

got my subs from SS and GB this week, on out of town next week and will come home to BB and TT so i'm confident i can survive this month as long as i stay away from the online shopping.

Umm, I've bought way too much the past few months, so I'd like to go on a no buy (other than subs) for the rest of July and all of August. 

 

My biggest temptations are when I get sale notices, as I talk myself into spending by telling myself how much money I'll be saving.  I've got product coming out the wazoo, I don't need ANYTHING. 

 

I blog, but I should have enough items to write about through August.

    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
    • cool, thanks for the tips!  I like all of k-beauty products I've tried so far but I haven't tried any foundations yet. The best foundation I've found is FitMe and it's super cheap but I want to change brands.  FitMe is a matte finish.
    • I mostly prefer k-beauty products. I use Missha foundation, I have been using this from last 3 years. It has different shades we can choose according to our skintone. And also I have suggested this to my friends and cousins, they all are every satisfied with this products. I always prefer to shop from Althea beauty store for all k-beauty products, because it provides best discounts on products.
    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now.
