No Buy 2017 Update (Haul #14)

I had made an announcement in my 2016 Collective Product Empties (link here) that 2017 would be a NO BUY year in terms of cosmetics.

I did make exceptions for things that I used and ran out of and the single frivolous expense would be the original Beauty Blender (something I have been dying to try out!).

So, save for a face mask, and the Hugo Boss perfume, everything else were repurchased stuff I use regularly.


Drugstore (Watsons, Guardian) and Dollar Store (Mr. DIY)

Purple metal pen holder (Mr. DIY), MYR 3.50. I purchased this with some other things for my aunt, however, she ended up paying me back in excess and it more than covered the cost of it.

Nivea Men Invisible Anti-Perspirant (Guardian), original price; MYR 16.80, purchased for; MYR 15. I am looking into anti-perspirant vs deodorant and the whole safety reasoning; a revelation I only came into after having purchased this.

Maybelline Micellar Water (Guardian), original price; MYR 22.40, purchased for; MYR 9 (I KNOW RIGHT??!!!).

Kate Powderless Liquid Foundation (won via a giveaway), price (on Watsons); MYR 78.40.


Beauty stores (Sephora and Shins)

Hugo Boss Red EDT (Shins), original price; MYR 254, purchased for; MYR 137 (I KNOW RIGHT??!!!).

Sephora Lotus eye mask, price; MYR 8. I only purchased this to redeem the 100 points sample product which was the Sephora Pore & Fine Line Filler primer (in the middle).

FINALLY! I HAVE IT!!!!!!!!!!! THE BEAUTY BLENDER. Original price; MYR 99, purchased for; MYR 61.40. Purchased with my fellow beauty influencer friends. We went in on a promotion by Sephora; 5 pack for MYR 307, and so one comes up to about MYR 61.40, an unbeatable price! Even with the 20% Sephora private sale, it would only come up to MYR 79.20.

    • LOL! Well, I needed them… Wait, no, none of these I need. ๐Ÿ˜› I ran out of these??? ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›
      OMG, you have no idea! I am so itching to rip plastic packaging off a makeup product! I think I’d have to do it with what I already have but am afraid it is going to run out! ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›

    • I’ve been able to use it for a while now and I don’t think I am going to be. As much as it really REALLY revolutionary, I am able to use other makeup sponges (although not as magical to use) and get the same affect the beauty blender does.
      I don’t regret my purchase and I would definitely repurchase it. But I won’t immediately run out and get it when I feel like it is getting worn or torn. Nor will I stop using my other makeup sponges.


  1. Replenishing is definitely ok! It’s always interesting to see what people repurchase – if they’re so good that you’re buying it over and over again, you know it’s HG material!
    You got such a good deal on that Beauty Blender! Is it everything you were hoping it would be? ๐Ÿ™‚

    • It is! I love the BB! HOWEVER, I think my other, more affordable ones are not going to be put away or neglected because I do believe I can get the same finish as the others do. But in terms of using it and how it feels, I LOVE! It is everything!
