Whilst many people are giving up alcohol during January, I have chosen to do without my one true love…lipgloss! Well OK it’s not just lipgloss (particularly as I have recently become a fan of lip pencils and lipsticks…but more about that later)…I will be doing without purchases of all makeup and beauty products for ONE WHOLE MONTH!
I feel quite faint just typing that but it really needs to be done. My collection is getting bigger and bigger and I fear I have become addicted to the adrenaline rush of buying a new product and using it once before discarding it for the next big thing. My one disclaimer is that my monthly subscription boxes that are already winging their way to me cannot be stopped (phew!) as payments have already been taken…so they really don’t count! 😉 As part of my no-spend-athalon I will be looking back through my existing collection (see above image for a sample), using and testing products that are gathering dust and letting you know what I think of them…and maybe, just maybe I will find some hidden gems in there. Wish me luck!
