No Makeup/Skincare Purchase Month

Hi all. I spend way too much on makeup/skincare (mainly makeup). Yesterday, I decided for August not to buy any more makeup and use what I have. I am also adding skincare products because although I used to not spend often on skincare, I have been these past few years. Mostly I had been finding products that work well on my skin and nickel free/Quaternium 15 free. However, once I find this, I end up switching after couple days or weeks.

I have tons of makeup. One month may help me use up what I currently bought and really like, such as the Lorac Pro Palette, Tarte’s Tarteist paint mascara and Double Take eyeliner, and Too Faced Melted Berry lipstick. Also the previous purchases I still like- Clinique’s lid pop in Grape and Pop+Primer in Berry Pop, Cola Pop. I have a few others that I don’t use by itself but can add with these two shades.

One month, I know is not enough to finish all these off. Believe me, I have tons more makeup here and palettes I took to PA that I left there because I was planning on giving it to a friend but she decided changing plans to meet her other friend’s needs. Those irritate my eyes. So, I don’t plan on using it at all either way.

But the makeups my skin can tolerate, I plan to use most of them with exception of the products I regret buying.

I am hoping this will help me save money because every paycheck I receive tends to go to makeup. And I really need to get my act together and save! I also need to pay off bills and worry about my car registration, inspection, and maintenance all in one month. August is that time for my car.

I have tried many times and failed at saving. I hope posting this online where others know (rather than just me), I may find support. And maybe somebody out there might join me this month if they have a similar problem with spending on makeup or anything.

Buying a lot of makeup doesn’t necessarily mean you have a problem. It’s when all your purchases are affecting your financial life. And when you try to stop, you realize you are addicted to it and cannot stop. Therefore, please don’t think I think people who buy so much makeup has problems. I don’t.
