Hello dear readers,
I have an announcement to make. The title doesn’t lie. I’m challenging myself to not purchase makeup for 100 days. I know, the horror! I have actually been quietly challenging myself to not purchase any makeup for the last little while, and I’ve decided to roll with it. To date I haven’t made a purchase since February 1st. So technically it’s T-62 days left. Does this mean my blog is going get to boring? Absolutely not!! I still have a ton of products to review and share with you guys.
Basically, ever since the holidays I was getting into the habit of checking Sephora’s website way too often, and becoming a Sephora VIB Rouge member this past year hasn’t helped. The promotional emails can be pretty aggressive and hard to turn down. In 100 days, a ton of new Spring products will get released and spread all over Youtube, Twitter and Instagram. Instead of impulse-buying shiny new products, I can take this time to see what gets released that is actually worth it. Also, I’ve frankly been feeling overwhelmed by my makeup collection. It’s REALLY grown over the past year and I think I need to start shopping my stash and playing around with all of the fun stuff I already own. I have SO MUCH LIPSTICK I’ve only worn once or twice.
As a student who works part time I really had to get my priorities in check and stop spending $20, $30, $40, $50 here and there to satisfy my craving to buy and try new makeup. I don’t want to become a mindless consumer and being an avid Youtube viewer isn’t helping my cause. Things are just things and even though I love to shop, I probably have 5 years worth of eyeshadow right now, and I could’ve gone on a freaking trip with all the money I spent at Sephora in 2015. (I went on trips anyway don’t worry 😉 ).
I’m kind of excited about this challenge- I feel sort of cleansed in a way.
