The rules

Now to the boring part; the rules!

This is inspired on the Make out 2013 on the Beauty travel channel by Christine, with a little bit of tweaking to my needs and preferences ;) So kind of a "no beauty buy" for the year of 2013 (with exemptions).
I'm going to allow myself to buy 12 beauty items in the year 2013, one for each month so to say, or maybe it should be 13 items (as it is the year 2013), 1 item for each month, plus one bonus item?
These beauty items are going to include; eyeliner, eyeshadow, foundation, powder, blush, bronzer, lip-gloss, lipstick, mascara, brushes, facial creams, facial serums, eye-creams, nail polish, facial toner, facial mask, bb cream, facial cleaner, facial wash and perfume.
They are going to exclude; shampoo, conditioner, body scrub, body lotion, body mist, deodorant, hairspray, hair foam and other hair products, though I know in advance that I'm not going to buy a lot of these products as I never do (well I do buy shampoo and conditioner, but not a lot of the other products).

The big rule-exemption is that I'm not going to count beauty products I buy when/ if I go abroad, as beauty items are so expensive in Iceland I might want to stock up on some items when abroad, so they are not going to count to the 12 items of the year. Repurchases in Iceland are going to count though, as well as palettes are going to count as one item. This I think is quite bold, as I know I will soon have to buy a new mascara, eye make-up remover, face cream, serum and a toner as I'm out of toner already. To this would count as five, which is about 40% of my item allowance, eeek... I'm in trouble already.
I'm still going to share with you my thoughts on excluded items, items I buy aborad or items I already have in my collection.

Thank you for reading,
and we will see how I'll do on given promises
