Yearlong Beauty Low Buy | Update #4 (August Recap)

I've been working hard to reign in my spending this year and to stop my beauty collection from expanding beyond control. Although some months have been more successful than others, I've been making an effort to reduce my hyper-consumerist tendencies. Please keep reading for my latest recap of my first Yearlong Beauty Low-Buy.

Makeup Minimalism | MASSIVE Spring Beauty Declutter (Haircare, Skincare & Cosmetics)

As a beauty blogger and lover, I'm constantly trying out new cosmetic, skincare and hair care products. However, over the past 2-3 years, I've been attempting to reign in my shopping and work through what I own through a comprehensive inventory system, periodic No-Buys, and yearlong Project Pans. Although my preference is always to finish up the products I buy, decluttering is a necessity when you own a vast beauty collection. The below products are beauty items that I have decluttered this past Spring, excluding those products that I am currently trying to sell on Poshmark. Although the total number of products decluttered is not greater than the number of new items that entered my collection, I still view this declutter as a small victory. It takes a lot of mental toughness to think critically enough to declutter beauty products, because of the personal attachment I place on these goodies. Please keep reading to see what I moved out of my collection this Spring!

Makeup Minimalism | 2019 Low Buy Introduction & Project Pan Goal

At the close of 2018, I had every intention of doing a yearlong cosmetic No-Buy. Having successfully completed a 6 month No Buy in years past, I felt like this challenge would be doable for me. However, the more I thought about doing a yearlong No Buy, the more anxious I became about my spending...  I started to spend uncontrollably, constantly buying new beauty products online. Essentially, I was on a beauty binge that lasted for roughly 2.5 months. As a result of my reckless spending this Fall and this Winter, I've decided to put myself on a three-month long No-Buy. My No-Buy started on February 11th and will run through May 11th.
