Before long it will be time to give my No Buy pause and make some calculated beauty purchases. Soon, the infrequent (and therefore precious) sales shall be upon us. I am not unrealistic – I’ll want to shop.
No Buy Pause Plan
- C-Firma Day Serum. My bottle is starting to feel low, but I can’t bring myself to pay full price. If I’m very lucky and their Come C About Me set is still around when it is VIB Sale time, I’ll get it.
- Two tubes of Gimme Brow. I still have one unopened tube, but I’m hoping to get through at least October 2018 (ambitious, I know) before needing to repurchase after this planned purchase. I seriously love how low-effort this product is.
- Clarisonic Brush Heads. Buying these at full price for my Clarisonic Mia2 is not an option!
- One of the Real Techniques Pocket Expert Organizers.
- Another MAC 217 brush.
The Bottom Line
There will be more purchased as I hope to maintain my Sephora VIB and Ulta Platinum statuses for 2018. If I plan and am deliberate, I am confident I can meet those thresholds without buying random stuff I don’t feel strongly about.
Fortunately, I continue to be underwhelmed by holiday collections. so there’s little temptation there. The only thing I have been stricken by so far are Urban Decay’s new Heavy Metal glitter liner shades. I love the one I own, but definitely don’t need to add more to my collection – so it is easy to get over.
