Makeup Ban!

Greetings!

Lately, I've been thinking about all the beauty purchases that I've been accumulating and have yet to use.  Yes, they are products that are lovely, but I don't even know if they're practical because I haven't had the chance to use them yet!  That's a problem.  So here's what I've decided to do.  In order to truly take my time in trying out these new products without jumping to the "next best thing" I'm going to go on a makeup ban, that's right, I won't be making any beauty purchases until November 30, 2012.  Yup, can you tell that I've prepared myself for this already?  LOL

I am a beauty lover and in order to maintain that zest for all things beauty I have got to start using my products more.  I am a firm believer in using all of my beauty products because I want to be able to indulge in them all, call it greedy if you want to.  I'm not in the business of buying products because they look pretty and never to be used again, NO, THANK YOU, MA'AM!  During this time off I'm going to use the items I currently have and my faves will make it to the blog, sounds like a deal?  Great!


For me this decision is difficult if you understand my affinity for the newest tube of lipstick or face primer, I am really going out on a limb to control my appetite for impulsive shopping but I am sure I can do it.  Now, just because I'm going through a "makeup fast" that doesn't mean I won't be blogging, of course I will, so don't be scurred!  LOL

Hopefully, by the end of this I will be able to see how much I have saved by keeping my money in my pocket and out of a beauty company's pockets.  And in the meantime, I'll finally have a chance to use some of the products I've been neglecting.

Have you tried this before?   Want to join in on this "makeup fast" with me?  Follow me on Twitter to join in on the fun!

  2. I've tried the makeup ban before, but failed miserable. Now, I use up 3 items, before I make a purchase of a single product.I'm doing great, with this method.

  3. I really need to place myself on a "No New Makeup Purchases" diet! I have amassed quite a collection and have enough makeup to last me for 10 years...
