After the No-Buy Makeup Challenge… Jeanne asks Sharon
Jeanne: How long did your no-buy makeup last?
Sharon: 8 months. The no-buy challenge ended short because I went to Korea in March 2016. Yup.
Jeanne: What have you learned from the no-buy makeup challenge?
Sharon: Learned that I needed to stop buying hyped-up products and really think about making the purchase because I end up only using my favorites anyway.
Jeanne: How did you deal with the sudden change?
Sharon: We ended up doing a beauty swap a few months into the challenge and I found some good products like the Hada Labo lotion, which I ended up loving and finished! I also went on swapidu.com and found a great Too Faced Natural Matte palette, which I still enjoy using. These swaps helped soothe my desire for new beauty products.
Jeanne: How much money do you think you saved through the no-buy makeup challenge?
Sharon: Approximately $500!
Jeanne: What’s new in your beauty buying trends?
Sharon: Now I’m really into looking at what ingredients go into beauty products, especially with skincare. I will still purchase a product if I really want to but I’ve been trying to be more conscious about the quality of the products rather than getting distracted by the hype.
