I am thinking about a NO BUY until Rebel Rock comes out.. IF i even get anything from that. i counted my stuff last night and this is what i have:

45 pots of e/s

15 palettes of all sizes (15 pan, 6 color, quads etc)

10 Lipsticks

12 pigments

Multiple pencils

4 lipglasses ( i dont use them much)

6 blushes/shimmer powders

uh- i think i need to chill some and go on a NO BUY!

I'm thinking that that's the way to go... although mine would be for monetary reasons moreso than because I have a lot... BUT I know that I'm going to come into a lot of extra $$ next month which will set me up to go on a SPREE so I think it'll be easy to do a NO BUY til then... especially now that I've gotten turned on to Stila...

i haven't really been buying too much stuff. except for the stila and tiny c-squeeze stuff.

i've sold some makeup also, so i'll check out rebel rock and the new collections. it was my b-day yesterday and didn't get anything, so i have an excuse. lol

i'm proud of myself. i haven't been buying makeup lately. i have everything i need (i love extras, but i'd rather save my money up for a car instead and i'm close!), so when i DO need something, i'll buy it. everything else i swap for

I've been on a no-buy this month. I was planning on only doing it for the month of July, but the way my budget is looking I may be on a no buy for another month by default! I have a ton of makeup as it is. I took pics of my stash last night and I was shocked by how much stuff I have! Being on a no buy has taught me to appreciate and use the colors that I already have rather than running out and buying some new thing that strikes my fancy.

I thought I really loved the Rebel Rock stuff when I first saw it here on MuT, but I know I'm going to want a lot of stuff from Naturally Eccentric so I'm going on a semi-no-buy. By this I mean that I'm going to buy the Shiseido concealer that I need and maybe some Shiseido compact foundation and that's gonna be it until Naturally Eccentric.

During the school year, I go to college in this little town, and I can't get anything good unless I order it online. So, basically, I'm always on a no-buy while I'm there until November when I go on an online shopping spree and feel horribly guilty afterwards. Haha. And usually that's just clothes. After I buy more "basics" like brushes and some eyeshadows that will be my staples and some better face makeup...I will be done for a loooong long time. I just need to get the good quality stuff for sure.

oh SURE! I go on a NO BUY and what was in my email this morning? MAC tempting me with Rebel Rock, which is now up on their site.. and to complete that, there was a little note that said : Visit MACCOSMETICS.com and receive FREE STANDARD SHIPPING with any purchase. This is an email-only offer. Use offer code SF75E at checkout.

damn them! (shakes fist in some wild gesture while muttering really foul language)

I have a horrible confession. I bought something today. I was at the drugstore for my once a month trip to refill my prescription, and I picked up two eye shadows. I bought Milani Atlantis and Wild and Crazy New U Girl. I couldn't resist, but I only paid 99 cents for each, so at least I'm not breaking the bank.

I'm officially on a no-buy. That Stila discount haul was more than enough for a while. More than a while.

I'm with Sofia on this one.. I spent lots on Stila products recently & i bought a few things on eBay. I owe my parents €450 from using their CC in the last month! So i'm officially on a no-buy until further notice.

I was on a "No buy" today as I was getting gifts for my step sister. I did have some House of Fraser loyalty vouchers to spend though so I went in there with Trisha and ended up with a Paula Dorf powder brush. It seems they're discontinuing the line there so it was 70% off, I'll be back on wednesday to get some other brushes too!
