Has Anyone Else Gone Low Buy/No Buy with Makeup?

I'm going to be trying an experiment this year, partly to save money and partly just because I think it might be interesting.

I'm banning myself from buying any makeup unless I literally run out of a product (like concealer, not like a single color of eyeshadow). If I do have to buy, I'm only going to buy high-end and do a lot of research and sampling ahead of time. Obviously I'm still going to have to change my mascara every 3 months.

But what I really wanted to know is -- has anyone else tried banning themselves from compulsive makeup shopping? What have been your experiences with it?

This is a WONDERFUL idea! I mean I have so much makeup, I sometimes just do NOT use any at all. I need a good cleaning, and either throw out makeup that I'm not using. Or use the ones and I have before buying anything new.

I wasn't realizing how much I was spending. I am drawn to color and cosmetics. But then it occurred to me that $20 here and $30 there ads up. I'm limiting my spending to what I really need now. Please be aware that high-end products are not ALWAYS the best; sometimes their ingredients are identical with those you find in discount/drugstores. But this is a great idea--thanks!

To answer your question...I've not done this. I don't have a need to as I rarely buy makeup and when I do it's a die hard product that I always use..... However I am posting because I want to applaud you as I think it's an excellent idea. Kudos to you for being extra thoughtful toward your purchases :)

Good idea. I'm a makeup addict so I don't think I could do this yet.

I am low maintenance when it comes to wearing makeup every day. Most days I don't use any makeup whatsoever. I can tell that when I do this..my skin is more flawless and my daily serum, eye lotion, and spf lotion work better on my skin. Good luck. :) if you can't leave all your makeup..stick to a low maintenance routine..and a mineral based makeup.

I'm not into a specific product, i mainly deal with eyeshadows and mascaras, so the only thing i run out to buy is mascara. sometimes i'll try to delay that by using black shadow.
