It’s Time For A No Buy

There comes a time in life when you’re stacking pallets up, desperately trying to fit them in your drawer and you’re constantly rearranging your lipstick drawer just to try and find a spot for that 10th perfect red you just had to have. This is when you need to step back and realize you will never finish off these makeup products if you just keep buying more.

I am a bargain shopper when it comes to beauty. Sales are my best friend, but just because it’s on sale doesn’t mean I need to have it. The sheer amount of products I have to get through and realizing that products have expiry dates means if I don’t want to be throwing money down the drain I need to start using my products now.

This no buy will be pretty straightforward. I will post any and all beauty purchases to hold my self-accountable.

If I have it, I won’t be buying it. So that face wash I love… I have 5 others I don’t love, but those go first.

If it has gone bad or genuinely can’t be used it will be binned and once I am out of other options I may replace it.

There is no set end to this no buy, it over once I make a reasonable dent in my stash.

Project pan will now just be empties, but that means you will see more posts.

If I receive a beauty item by means of a gift or for review this does not count as it was not bought by me, but it will still have to be used up before purchasing a replacement.

I haye doing a no buy this close to the holidays, but who knows maybe I will make a dent and need some replacements by then.

Wish me luck


Project Pan 2018 | Lets do 18 in 2018

Hi, Beauties,

I know everyone starts Project Pans at the beginning of the year, but there is no better time to begin than the present.

For those of you who don’t know project pan is when you select products from your collection and you dedicate yourself to using them up or hitting pan.

Most makeup junkies can agree with me on one thing; you have so much makeup but not enough time to use it all and you just keep buying more! I have a lot of products I neglect. That is why I have chosen to try and use up 18 products by the end of 2018! There are some products I love that I use all the time, and there are items I neglect and want to form a better opinion of/get more use out of. This should be fun!

I am going to be doing a purge of my makeup in the next couple days, anything that is expired/unsafe to be used up (sadly there are lipglosses from about 7-10 years ago lingering around) (don’t worry I never touch them just haven’t gotten round to tossing them) will be going in the trash. Anything I can donate to a friend (stuff that is still good, but cant use: Sensitive to it or just doesn’t go well with me) I will and then I will fill my makeup bag with my items I want to use up.


Wish me luck!
