Yeah I'm sort of right at the end of my storage solution at this point, which is frightening.

 

One thing, I do feel like there are certain categories of things that I have so much variety with, that it'll be easier to hold back when new products come out. For example - those Archie blushes are really beautiful, but I KNOW I've got colors that are going to look exactly the same on me, unless I want the clown cheeks look. I'm sure I'll try them and love them, but I think it's going to be easier to resist them. Same thing goes for stuff like eye pencils and coral lipgloss - it's all full up at the inn.

Good strategy!  I need another blush like I need a hole in the head.  I'm drawn to the unique, stand-out products and hopefully that's all I'll get.  I say that now but will likely get caught up in the hype of it all!

If it's pretty but almost the same as something we already have (sometimes several versions of), I don't see much of a point. I've been here before with makeup stashes; the last time I reached capacity (and I had less than I do now because I had considerably less money back then), I just basically stopped buying anything other than basics like powder and foundation and the odd lippie for several years. I used things up (and yes, it's possible to hit pan on most of a large palette) or just finally got tired of them.

 

I'm about there now. I can't say that a gorgeous lippie, e/s, MSF or beauty powder won't come out that will draw me in but there really aren't any holes left in my collection and I hate having stuff I never use. I should know better than to do that; if I'm ambivalent about a product or fall in love with it based on how it looks on others (who don't have my colouring or skin type) then I inevitably end up gifting it away. So now if I get something and don't really like it, I'm not keeping it.

 

The 2013 buying criteria I'm going to try implementing is:

  1. Do I LOVE it? If no, pass. I have no room left for 'okays'. If yes, next question.
  2. Do I have something so similar that only one of the products will end up being used? If no, whohoo! Get it. If yes, next question.
  3. Am I tired of the original version and willing to BTM or give it away? If yes, am I sure this product won't be the same in 6 months?

 

 

  • I think most items won't make it past questions 1 or 2. Now I just have to be disciplined and not make rationalizations.

I love that strategy and should totally adopt it.  The trick is to avoid rationalizations and not be sucked in by the hype!  I like to place myself on very specific no buys, for example, no more Lustre lippies because I have too many or no more pink frosts.  Currently I am on a no buy for all glosses unless incredibly unique, no nude lippies and no more blue based red lippies.  I should go on a blush no buy soon too, but not sure I have the discipline.

I regret getting the silver eyeshadow. Gritty and the color didn't look good on me. The champagne e/s looks better on me but like the silver one, it's gritty and glittery. It should have been labeled as a lustre finish not veluxe pearl. I haven't used Charmed I'm Sure since halloween and the beauty powder sits untouched like my Hey Sailor Crew BP. sigh.gifThat's why my New Year's resolution was to be more selective about my product purchase.

Yesterday i did a warm summer look(yes in january lol)using Scarlett Ibis and Legendary with WOG and it looked amazing.i use FM(lightly) to set my under eye concealer almost every day.And i also have to say that i LOVE Legendarypretty.gif now that i've been using it more.It's one of my favorite peachy blushes and God knows how many i got.

I've hit pan on my first FM. I wear TPC a lot - probably weekly. I've only worn Showgirl once because I rarely wear greys. I should try to reach for it a bit more. I've worn DA a few times but not since Christmas. VG1 is still my first love (almost 20 years strong). It's my HG red.

Oh yeah I do wear The Perfect Cheek blush alot. It's my winter blush.

Love Goddess is growing on me.  Of course lippies get heavier rotation when they get noticed by hubs graucho.gif

post #8385 of 8500

Just wore Love Goddess when I went out to dinner with a friend last week!

I'm glad everyone has been giving their products love :) I've been feeling so overwhelmed with all the other collections, I've only reached for charmed I'm sure. It's time to give the rest of the products some love sigh.gif

I only have one, so I use it very sparingly.  I try not to waist it when im going to work. Nights out only (which are rare now a days)

post #8392 of 8500

My first FM beauty powder right now... sad sight :( I guess it's not bad for daily use. Thank god for my two B/Us, hope MAC comes out with something similar that I fall in love with by the time I'm done my B/Us. And yes, that's my hello kitty phone case in the mirror girlhaha.gif

Hopefully I'll be reaching for CIS, DA & LG a lot more for the entire month of February--in sync w/a Valentine's Day theme to encourage use of reds & pinks.  If I don't shine a spot light on products for a specific reason they seem to fall to the wayside of the latest collection!

I thought I packed Love Goddess when I went to my parents yesterday, but today I found out I took Deeply Adored instead. The funny thing is that when I was doing my eyes and face I was wishing I had taken Deeply Adored. I guess it wanted some lovelove.gif
