I ended up skipping, not feeling the colors. I hope March is good since its my birthday month. I will probably pick up the highlighters when they go on sale.

Polishes from the new collection have been 950 since (I *think*) May. It was the same month that they upped the price to $6.99.

I don't remember the cost of other add-ons, but I know adding a whole box as an add-on (or paying for your box itself) for 2000 jules was pretty much the best ratio you could get.

That's awesome, I think I will save my Jules for a box.

Did you guys also check out the Jule Box? They added a ton of stuff and it is soooo much better.

I ended up skipping. I decided that I didn't think that my daughter would like the namesake polish all that much, I don't need highlighter and I didn't like Hartleigh. I was going to get Hazel and then the magenta metamorphic top coat, but realized that I already have Sephora's Formula X over the moon which sounds very much like the topcoat. I'll just hold out and get Hazel another time.

I originally was going to get the Bombshell box with the Metamorph trio and two more polish add ons. At the last minute I chose to skip.

I want all the polishes this month (including Hartleigh) except the very dark ones. I have near-dupes for several though, so my box is Becky (LOVE the satin finishes), London (I don't have any pinkish purples anywhere near that color), the glycolic body scrub (I just used it for the first time recently and will take as much of it as I can get), and Hartleigh of course. I'm super excited about everything, and it works out to be a pretty good value for me.

Modern Beauty box for me with Ada as an add on. I'm really hoping the eye brightening pen is like the YSL version... I know I'm stretching here but there's always a chance :)

I received my I Woke Up Like This Mystery Box this weekend.  I had also bought on an Orbital Eyeshadow that had been shipped inside the mystery box.  The eyeshadow was smashed in to pieces and was all over everything including me and my furniture when I opened the box.  Sadness!  I've contacted Julep and will see what happens.

If I (re) join today, will I get the Feb box? I REALLY want Hartleigh.

No, the selection window closed the 24th.

The window is always the 20th-24th, and I know new signups have to be before the 18th. I have no idea how it works for un-canceling your account though. Like if you re-signed up on the 22nd, I don't know if they would immediately allow you to pick your box for that month, or if you'd have to wait for the following one.

Now that the window is closed, I'm making my wish list for the secret store. I've run out of quite a few HG nail products and I can't justify paying $8 USD for such a small refill bottle of Clean Slate alone. Plus, the only item that seems to be in stock is the full kit with the pump which is even more $$. I'm hoping to pick it up in a kit of some sort like I did last time.

 

Any other SS wishes?

I went with Hazel, London and Vivian. I think Heartleigh is pretty so hopefully it isn't too difficult to apply.

I like that they updated the Jule box section. There are several polishes for 400 jules and polishes purchased with Jules count toward the total to apply a code. I got 3 polishes for $2.19 using the code colorfun.

News from the secret store: Beth is available for sale by itself now, the 2nd Feb birthstone is black onyx, Winnie, Amira, Kendall, and Gretchen are not holiday exclusives: Winnie is for sale by itself and in a duo, Amira is by itself and in a set, Kendall is in a duo, and mini Gretchen is in a set of four. A mini Rae is in a different set of four.

Also most (all?) of the polishes from the Feb collection are in the secret store, for $6.99. Including Ada and Hartleigh. And the metamorphic top coats.

Guys. I was so mad my insomnia was keeping me up. But, then I saw bonita's post about the 400 jules polishes and got Paula for absolutely free. That's a color I've been wanting for a while too.

 

Early bird caught the worm. Maybe insomnia isn't too bad. Thanks for telling everyone about that 400 jules deal @@bonita22 . You rock.

Did anyone else get 5 bonus Valentine topcoats in their box? Not sure if it was something they sent out to everyone or one of those surprise things for random customers?

    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.   
    • Something amazing for No Buy - Project Pan - Project Use It Up followers - I was reading the comments section of a Hannah Louise Poston video (Lots of Empties, published 1/21/2020) and I heard about a beauty shop called Credo that has a special recycling bin for cosmetics. Apparently if you bring your empties in for them to recycle, they give you rewards points for new things. And you can bring in any empties, not just things from their shop, although they don't take nail polish, nail polish remover, or perfume. Wow, I love that. What an inspiration for us to stay with our projects. There is no Credo store near me though. They are only in the major US cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc., but maybe they will expand. Maybe they will find a way to let us mail in our empties? Or maybe I will take a trip someday, if I am good on my No Buy for a long time ... I could get my eyebrows done at their store too. Who knows. They do have an online shop also and they give three samples with orders. They have beautiful things. I think I will sign up with their site and start saving my empties up (instead of putting them in my neighborhood recycling); this may a coming trend! It's inspiring.  I always read the comments sections of No Buy videos on YouTube. I always find great tips and inspiration.
    • Hi, lottie. How would you be able to dry brushes that fast? Mine take a day to dry
