Makeup Rotation: December 31-January 6

  My new years resolution is to not buy any makeup or clothes for 100 days starting on December 29.  The reality is I have a shopping problem and I have too much stuff.  The one exception will be that I will be buying some stuff to do a giveaway once I reach 100 followers.

  I have made a Word document listing all my lipsticks and blushes and I will be rotating them every week so I get equal wear out of all of them.

I left myself a free day since I want to be able to choose from my whole collection for New Years Eve.

 Lips of the week: MAC Boys Go Crazy + Barry M 100, Illamasqua Welt, Revlon Lip Butter in Sweet Tart, MAC Coral Bliss, MAC Ruby Woo, MAC Brick-O-La



Cheeks of the week (clockwise from top left): Illamasqua Hussy, NARS Exhibit A, Sleek Rose Gold,Topshop Flush, MAC Highland Honey, MAC Dollymix

  1. This sounds like a fantastic idea! I've never planned my makeup for the week, but I just might have to try it :) And I commend you for committing to a no-buy for 100 days.

    1. Lol I feel the same that's why I stuck with 100 days because I don't think I could do much longer.

  3. I've been wanting to try the Sleek Rose Gold because it looks like a dupe for NARS Orgasm! Please tell me how you wear the NARS Exhibit A because that is looking INTENSE!

    1. Rose Gold is less reddish than Orgasm (which didn't suit me). I just use a very small amount of Exhibit A and then blend it out with a clean blush brush.

  8. I share your pain, I have a lot of stuff as well, I have been doing pretty well the past couple weeks with not buying anything for myself in terms of clothing and makeup. Hopefully I can keep it up for a couple of months

  12. Such a great idea - I could do 100 days on clothes no problem. But cosmetics? Ohhhhh if I saw something new I would break. But I need to do something like this, so thank you for the inspiration!

    1. Atleast clothes can last a long time but I have so much makeup that it'll expire by the time I can use it all up. Good luck :)
