There will be a few no-buy related posts coming your way over the next month or so, but I thought I’ll start with a really fun one.
Ever since I can remember I have always had some kind of wish-list on hand. One of the first ones had a pair of red roller skates on it. Now, however, almost 20 years latter my wish-lists are almost entirely fashion and beauty centred.
For the purposes of this post imagine I was to give myself a free pass to buy some of those very coveted items. So this is what I would pick:

Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Eye Shadow Palette (AUD 76.00) – I finally purchased the Modern Renaissance palette about four months ago and I’ve been so impressed with the quality. The eye-shadows are so soft, so pigmented, blend very nicely and they last so long. Everything you could ever want in an eye-shadow. Norvina seems like a great extension of Modern Renaissance colour scheme and I do love me some good shimmers and purples. Norvina just seems like a natural choice.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara (AUD 39.00) – I’ve been trying for ages to find a good cruelty free mascara but haven’t had any luck so far. I’ve heard great things about this mascara and it would be the next one I would try.
Benefit Boi-ing Brightening Concealer (AUD 38.00/4.4g) – It would be a bit of a panic buy actually. I’ve heard great things about the coverage levels of this concealer. Knowing how little sleep you get once you have a new baby I would be counting on this to make me presentable again.
Chanel Rouge Coco Flash Lipstick (USD 38.00) – this is the most unpractical and illogical of the bunch. A completely unnecessary purchase, it would be a pure indulgence. Something I want based on the branding, packaging and the newness of the product. There really isn’t anything that particularly special about this lipstick. Newertheles, I really, really want it!
GHD Glide Professional Hot Brush (AUD 210.00) – This just seems like such an amazing idea! First few reviews that I’ve seen have been pretty encouraging. I also know that GHD as a brand always delivers so I would have no hesitation to buy their newest hair tool.
At the moment I’m, of course, pretty certain I will buy all of these once my no-buy is actually over but who knows. It will be interesting to see if this list looks the same some nine or even six months in.
Are you doing a no-buy? Hope it’s going well!
