This no-buy I set for myself is downgraded to a low-buy haha. Obviously, I love makeup, so let’s be real and give makeup a bigger space in my life. I’m still being careful of the colors and products I choose. It’s all about that balance 🙂 Anyway, I recently ordered some things from ELF, and I am so excited about them because they seem really good for us pale princesses. I’m probably most excited about about the new ELF Best Friend Eye Shadow Duo because the colors look promising and duos are easy and quick to use! Read on to see my thoughts.
Well, it was good while it lasted 🙂 Today I purchased a piece of makeup and broke my strict no-buy until the end of 2017. I had a good run – about 2 months of not purchasing any makeup.
I’m not kicking myself for my purchase today though. After decluttering all of the products that I wasn’t using, the sight of which was giving me stress and anger, and having a nice detox from makeup, I feel like I’m in a better place with makeup. I still am steering clear of the buy buy buy mentality. I no longer idly browse makeup aisles (…except for today when I went in to get a spoolie for my eye brows), but I think this one small item should be fine. The no buy will definitely resume after this!
Now what was it that broke my will and my no-buy? This little guy:
I have always admired the Bobbi Brown brand for its classic taste in makeup. It’s just kind of expensive, but I recently bit the bullet and got some everyday staples that I know I will use and love. Call it my Bobbi Brown essential starter kit, if you will. I purchased two eye shadows, Stone and Espresso, and a blush, Nude Peach, to dip my toes into the brand, and I’m excited to start using them! Read on for my thoughts on Bobbi Brown’s Stone, Espresso, and Nude Peach, especially if you want to start purchasing their makeup too but are not sure what to get!
