No Buy 2017 Second and Final Update (Haul #15)

I’m giving myself a pat on the back!

I’ve been doing pretty well!

No makeup purchased since the original Beauty Blender (which was something I gave concession for even with the No Buy challenge). I broke ONCE for a lip balm which isn’t exactly makeup.

The pictures are in two parts because I didn’t expect more stuff to be compiled after I wrote this post. First draft of this post only had the first picture.

Previous haul post link (Haul #14 here).

I know you see the Essence Blush trio there, HOLD YOUR HORSES! That was a gift! By my blogger friend Lakshmi (author of Big is Compatible link here). Price MYR 21.90.

Purchased from Guardian, Simple Kind to Skin Soothing Facial Toner dual pack. Price; MYR 28.20 (purchased because I was completely out of toners; funny enough, individual bottles were on sale for MYR14.50 and even then, the dual pack is cheaper).

Unicorn brushes; RM 1.00! (A YouTuber offered a code to purchase these brushes at RM1 via an online shopping app). Brushes are pretty poor quality but the bristles are surprisingly soft. Would have only regretted it if I paid any more than RM1…

These following stuff I got a little later.

Purchased from Guardian

LipHop Honey Moist royal jelly lip balm, original price; MYR 13.90, purchased for; MYR 9.90 (I caved in with this one because 95% of the lip balms available at local drugstores are by Rohto which owns The Mentholatum Company. Don’t believe me? Check it out next time, you’ll probably see logo of either Rohto or The Mentholatum Company on most of the lip balms sold at Watsons and Guardian. Besides, I loved their face washes; click the link here to see an example; so I wanted to check these out).

Simple Refreshing Facial Wash Gel (pack of TWO), original price; MYR 31.30, purchased for; MYR 28.90 (FYI, a single tube costs MYR 20.90!)

HOLD UP!!!!!

The NYX Wanderlust Envie De Voyager Lip and Eye Collection… AND the Makeup Gallery Gorgeous Flawless Foundation… were gifts from a lovely friend of mine, Emma, from the UK. Hi Emma *waves*!!!!!!

 

Come January 2018, I am going to keep this up, although not as strictly. I’m gonna make it Low Buy 2018.

I’m going to set myself a budget of MYR50 per month for makeup and cosmetics.

Let’s see how that goes! Wish me luck!

  1. Well done! 😀
    What a steal for those Unicorn brushes – I think those are typically eye candy and not really for the brush quality. 😛
    So great that you were able to supplement your No Buy with gifts too – it definitely helps satisfy the shopping itch! 😉

      Ah, the gifts were so satisfying! It’s like vaping for a recovering smoker to me!!! Not the best of analogy but you get the idea… HAHAHA!!!!!
