So, I've been on a no-buy for two months now, and I'll probably be on it until December. I've been just DYING for a new red lipstick, and I've been watching for sales on drugstore lipstick and looking for something cheap that I might like. I ended up going "shopping" in my own stash. I dug around the box looking for something that hadn't worn in a while, and I found the exact red lipstick color that I wanted!! It is Urban Decay Manic Depressive. I'm so happy! And to think that I might have gotten desperate and spent money at MAC when I had exactly what I wanted in my box already.

I was more trying to organize it and clean up my cabinet, rather than looking for something specific, and I found a ton of stuff that I haven't used for ages, it seems. I have really been trying to save up, since I want so many things from Stila and MAC. I think when you get such a large amount of makeup that you forget what you have, it's good to go through it and rediscover products you haven't worn for a awhile...you get the rush of trying something 'new' for free!

I've just rediscovered some Chanel lip inky things, Stila Natalie and Lara lipsticks, and Stila Grace and Viola shadows.

Do Urban Decay still do lipsticks because I can't find them on their site or Sephora?
I used to have a lip gunk palette and my male flat mate got really offended because one of the shades was called Gash.

The lipsticks are DC but you can still buy them on ebay and http://store.girlyjunk.com/urban-decay.html

Some of the names used to be more... wild. I think over the years they've started using names that are more tame. But then again their newest eyeshadow shades are all named after slang terms for marijuana.

I actually don't have a whole lot, I just have it all packed into a small box. Yeah, that's it.

Awesome! Glad that you didn't get a duplicate of something that you already have.

That's cool that you managed to find something in your stash. At least you didn't break your no-buy!!

That's so cool suzukigrrl! No-buys suck so it must have been quite a cheer-up for you!

That's great!!
Rediscovering stuff rocks (especially when you're on a no-buy!!). I'm actually on one right now until the beginning of December because I've honestly got way too much. It's not so much that I forget about what I own, but I keep getting new stuff and don't use stuff in my stash that I really do like. So why I'm checking out that link to UD lipsticks, I don't know...
