I’m cutting myself off. I’m embarrassed by the amount of money I spend on make-up per month when I already have colors and products that I love but use on sporadic occasions. It’s not that I spend a lot, but I spend when I don’t need anything. This isn’t necessarily a pan project, but I do hope I manage to use up some of my forgotten purchases so that I can really assess what I like and what can go.
I know a few of the bloggers I follow are in similar spots; Tomiko at An Organized Journal is in the middle of a pan project, and Christine at Brigid’s Beauty Blog just started her own two month ban on beauty purchases, so from here until who knows when, I will only be using and reviewing products I already own. I’m not exactly suffering here. The whole issue is that I have too many great products that are already being neglected.
I’m not cancelling my Birchbox or my new Sample Society subscription (I just got in like, a day ago, forgive me!) but that’s it. No new nail colors. No new lipsticks. And NO NEW REVLON LIP BUTTERS (this might be the worst one ;_;).
Tips or words of encouragement are nice. I can already tell I’m going to suck at this.
