But… I Really Do Like To Buy More and More New Makeup!

Well, as I have recently mentioned, I have really been trying not to buy new makeup…easier said than done! I really like to browse the makeup aisles! I love to look at all the new things!  I love to get great deals on makeup!  I love to buy all the makeup!  

Unfortunately, I don’t have a ton of space to store all the many beauty products that I buy. I have so many makeup products that I have used one or two times and completely forgotten about.  I also have so many awesome products that I don’t give enough love to.  I have decided that I am going to be going on a strict No Buy!  I will be shopping but it will be in my own stash.  Hopefully along the way I will discover some new loves and rediscover some old goodies!

I can hear all the beautiful things calling out my name!

Here are my self imposed rules to my No Buy…

  1. I can repurchase a product if I run out of a holy grail product that I always use on a daily basis. (ie my Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal  Mascara is running low and I know I am going to have to buy another one soon.)
  2. I can purchase/repurchase hair care and skin care items as they run out and need to be replaced.
  3. Ipsy and Walmart Beauty Subscriptions are not included since they are automatic subscriptions.
  4. Although, Target Beauty Boxes are going to be included in this self imposed No Buy.  I have so many stacked up filled with product samples that I have never used.
  5. When I feel as if I want to buy something new I need to first stop and ask myself “Do I already own something very similar to this product?”
  6. I need to try out and use up products and samples that I already own.
  7. Chapstick/lip balm is a major necessity, so if I see a new one that I really want to try, I can get it…Never mind, that totally goes agains the point of what I am trying to do.  No new chapsticks/lip balms.  I definitely have enough already!

What about you?  How do you decided when to cut back on your spending?  Do you have a monthly makeup budget?  If so how much do you usually spend?

  1. I did a no buy for a month last summer. It was hard, but the “loophole” of repurchasing things I run out of helped. And it helped me save up so I could totally splurge for my birthday haul the following month.


  2. Last year I went on an all year No-Buy!
    I posted some tips:
    My main motivation was to use up and enjoy my existing stash – it was so wasteful when things I loved would spoil before I had a chance to enjoy them.
    I’m on a Low-Buy this year – I gave myself a monthly allocation to spend on makeup, so far so good. 🙂
    I hope you’ll rediscover awesome things in your stash while you’re on the No-Buy. I know I did!
