28 Days

conventional addiction recovery models suggest that in buy to break a habit, one has to give it 28 days (some literature even say 21 day – whoa there buckaroo!) Well today is day 28 of my planned No-Buy 2015.  So how have I fared? I think I did amazingly!

Bwahahaha! Have you seen my Target entry?

Seriously, I failed.  Two weeks into this, I buckled.  But in my defense, I always maintained that my downfall would be 1) if one of my HG items got discontinued 2) if a brand / store that I shop at closed / left Canada.  Targetgate™ fell into the latter category.

In additional to Targetgate™, January was a bit of an abnormal month.  In the mail, I received a few items that I had bought just prior to the new year:

•  Guerlain By Emilio Pucci Terra Azzurra Bronzer & Blush
•  Guerlain Perles D’Azur Meteorites by Emilio Pucci
•  Dr. Mascara Fixer Longlash Up curl fix finishing fix (lash primer)
•  Dr. Mascara Fixer volume Up curl fix finishing fix (lash primer)
•  Assorted baggy of Korean appeal samples as my gift with purchase including Lioele beyond the option BB cream (which I’ve been wanting to try!), Bioré-type nose strip, serums etc.

The Guerlain by Pucci items were my last hurrah for 2014 (similar to people going to McD’s just prior to starting a diet)  – they’re limited edition from 2012 that I’ve kicked myself for not getting when they were released. I found a reliable seller on ebay who was selling BNIB (brand new in box) ones at affordable prices. The lash primers were recommended by youtuber Saaammage in her 2014 favourites, after I enjoyed that video I immediately went online and bought it – it took over a month to arrive in Canada from Korea. I’m trying to find a more affordable alternative to my current much-loved lash primer, Shiseido Nourishing Mascara Base which costs $25 a tube. These Dr. Mascara ones are $9 each and have fantastic reviews online. Daumen drücken.

I also received a belated Christmas present from my friend, R:

Nowhere does my No-Buy policies say that I can’t accept gifts of appeal items. Schlupfloch!
So the net effect of Targetgate™, online purchases and gifts indicates my stash numbers have changed:
+ 1 eye shadow palette / 12 shades (Target) = 616 eye shadows (counting each shade in a palette really skews the number huh!)
+ 1 eye / +2 face brushes (Target) = 225 eye / 135 face brushes
+ 1 eyeliner (Target) = 76 eyeliners
+ 1 face powder (Guerlain) = 106 base makeup
+ 1 bronzer (Guerlain)= 15 bronzers (I didn’t list this in my inventory summary, because it’s puny compared to the other categories.  Still, 15 bronzers is a lot for someone who doesn’t use bronzers on a regular basis…)
+ 2 eyelash primers = ? I don’t track my mascara stash considering that it fluctuates so often
+ assorted bath products = ? I haven’t counted my bath product stash

I’ll be doing a lot more in-depth reviews on the new items once I get a chance to try everything out properly. and I’ll post an update in February on my No-Buy status… stay tuned!

Mascara Base: Shiseido vs Dr. Mascara Fixierte mit Wimpernwoche, heute werde ich Mascara-Basen überprüfen. Was ist eine Mascara-Basis? Es ist wie ein Primer für Ihre Wimpern. Ich glaubte dem Hype nicht, bis ich ein GWP-Beispiel des Shiseido erhielt, und dann wurde ich umgewandt. Late last year, I bought a Korean mascara base…

Guerlain-MétéoritesGuerlain-Météorites ist ein Kult-Klassiker – ich kann nicht viel auf die Geschichte und Informationen hinzufügen, die sich bereits da draußen befinden, also werde ich nur zeigen, was ich besitze und meine Gedanken dazu bringen. Ich werde versuchen, diesen ganzen Beitrag zu schreiben, ohne die Wortkugeln (außer dieser Erwähnung), …
