After spending a large amount of time trying to figure out how to organize my collection I realized I’m in desperate need of a no buy.
I’ve always had a habit of overspending and needing to complete collections but this year I’ve become overwhelmed with what I have and the thought of having things to go bad before they’re used.
Being realistic though, I’m setting a low buy for 2020 instead. I’m working to start now, in November, so I don’t quit cold turkey.
I started by unsubscriping from all makeup and skincare emails, if I don’t see it I won’t need it, right?
Next, I’m handing my cards over to my boyfriend. I know the temptation is too strong for me to stop myself so I’m removing part of the temptation by cutting myself off financially.
Third, I’m going to focus more on following people who are also on no/low buys and focus more on panning.
Next, I am keeping my Ipsy and BoxyCharm subscription, there’s no way I could go without ANYTHING new lol.
The last thing is I’ve set a goal for myself. Since I enjoy the perks I get from being Rouge at Sephora, I’m going to save up for some luxury items to purchase during the Rouge sales, limited to two sales a year. This way I can keep my Rouge status and finally satisfy my curiosity regarding some of these high tag items.
I’ve been getting the Ipsy Glam Bag Plus for a couple of months now and so far I’ve been really impressed by the products I’ve received.
This month’s box included:
Nomad Cosmetics Berlin Underground eyeshadow palette
Glamglow Tropical Cleanser
Illamasqua Antimatter Lipstick in Midnight
Ciaté London Extraordinary translucent power
Wander Beauty Frame Your Face Micro Brow Pencil in dark brown
My box arrived yesterday and since today is my day off I decided to play around with some of the products, specifically the eyeshadow palette and eyebrow pencil.
I had to use a different palette for an initial crease shade but the remaining six colors were all from the palette.
Overall I’m very impressed by the pigmentation, the blendability and how approachable this palette seemed.
The brow pencil is fine, I personally prefer bigger tips because I just use it to fill in my brows but overall I was able to use it and I liked the way my brows came out. The pigmentation was great, not too much and it didn’t feel waxy
I’m not sure if I’ll try out the remaining products or gift them since I already have so many of those products in rotation.
I’m very happy with this month’s box and would definitely recommend it!
