#Pan That Palette Challenge and Attempting to go on a No Make up Buy
I love my make up and beauty products, but there is no point spending good, hard earned cash on products that are going to go off way before I use them, especially the liquid products, such as foundations, and lip glosses, and perfumes. I have decided that I am going to do an inventory of the amount of makeup that I have and I am going to post a picture of it on Instagram, and then write a blog post about it. There is a point where you have to say enough is enough, and rein in the spending.
I have a beautiful feminine, girly bedroom, that I chose all my self, but all my bedside tables, my Ikea Alex 9 drawers, my dressing table, my chest of drawers, my spare bedroom is literally bursting under so much beauty clutter that my brain just feels cluttered looking at it. To be honest, I don't think I would need to buy any make up for at least 3 years as I have so much, so I am stopping. Yes, I will be very tempted, especially when all the new collections come out, so I have really got to exercise will power and just not buy anything.
Another good thing that I have come across is on YouTube and Instagram, some lovely ladies are doing a #pan that Palette challenge, where you have to work on only one eyeshadow palette and try to use up every single bit of shadow in that palette for the whole year. So I have decided to join in this challenge, using the Lorac Pro palette. I will be updating you on my progress on the 1st of every month and seeing if I can finsh some of the shadows up.
I know, I said this at exactly the same time last year, but nothing changed and in fact I purchased more and more make up every month. So, I want to be held accountable and really work hard at not wasting my money, as really how many pink lipsticks does one girl really need!?!
So, I will be posting a "What's New At The Drugstore ?" blog post sometime in the next week, and then that is it, no more buying. So far I am at 4 days of no beauty spending and so that is quite good for me. Let's keep my fingers and toes crossed that I can really do this.
If you are on a no buy, or you are doing the #panthatpalette challenge, let me know in the comments below, and hopefully we can encourage each other on this journey.
Love and hugs
