So I’ve been on a self imposed buying ban for the past fortnight. I know a fortnight isn’t very long but I’m still on my eyeshadow buying ban so it feels like it’s been a lot longer than it has been. A
ban break every now and then never hurt no one, especially my credit card.
If I’m honest my fortnight ban is almost over (ends tomorrow) and while I haven’t had anything new to blog about, the whole things has sort of gone unnoticed. I admit I’m not the most material person out there, in fact the less is more approach is a a rule I abide by pretty much all the time. I’d rather buy one fancy lipstick I really like then three cheaper ones that I probably won’t use. That’s just how I roll. The same rules apply to clothing and other innate objects. I just don’t like clutter, especially clutter I trick myself into thinking I like but really don’t.
With that being said I’ve decided to go through my current beauty stash and pull out some pieces that don’t get enough love. Last week I said I wanted to rotate my products more so here are a few bits I want to use more of over the coming weeks.
I adore all of the products you see in the pics but sometimes I think I’m just a little precious about them. Some of them I’ve neglected while others I keep saving for special occasions. I feel like this is such a silly mindset as every day should be a special occasion right? So with that being said these are going to get a lot more use a lot starting now.
As a reference the products in the pics above include: Bobbi Brown Smokey Warm Eye Palette, Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour (#30), (lipstick as they appear left-right in the pic above) YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in Rouge in Danger (#4), MAC Vegas Volt, MAC Absolute Power, Smashbox Photo Op Under Eye brightener, YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch (shade 1 – Luminous Radiance).
What are your thoughts? Have you imposed a ban/break on spending?
