I have decided that I am starting a makeup no buy! It’s been a couple weeks since the last time I purchased any new products, and I haven’t felt the desire. However, I want to keep that momentum going! There is absolutely no reason at this time to introduce new items into my collection. In fact, I’d love to get some things out of my life!
Why do a no-buy
As a makeup addict, I am constantly purchasing products to put to the test and hopefully fall in love with! Some of the joy of makeup is in trying new trends and techniques and finding the best of the best! I am constantly purchasing new makeup. I truly love the endless possibilities of colour, formula and looks! Makeup is a creative outlet for me. In order to learn techniques and find my favourites, I buy products that offer different finishes and tones. Don’t get me wrong, I love the variety of my collection, but with this over purchasing, there are often items are unused and, quite honestly, sometimes forgotten. I want to delve into my collection and use items that haven’t been getting use. My hard earned money has been invested in this hobby, it’s time to get my money’s worth from it!
If you are unaware, I have been also actively working on a Project Pan (see the intro post here) for the majority of this year! It’s been a great challenge and eye-opening experience working through these items. I feel quite fulfilled finishing up items and learning multiple ways to utilize the things I own. I am so happy with the momentum I have gotten over these past months, and want to continue to do so.
I will be honest, there have been failed attempts in the past, but I truly think that my mindset has changed in the past few months. This will be a challenge, but I am ready and excited to hop in! I have a few ideas as to how I will maintain my no-buy, so definitely keep your eyes open for another post soon on that!
