I've still technically not broken my no makeup-buy since I've only been getting myself the littlest things here and there. No major purchases, or hauls, at all. It's pretty difficult but I'll live :)
I alleviated my hunger for mmu by a bit through my purchase from Pammy's Blog Sale for a Cause (all proceeds went towards their outreach program, awesome).
The lot of samples (transferred into jars) and a fullsize EDM blush cost only P100 or about $2. The samples were of blushes, eyeshadows, and a few of foundation, from Monave, Cory Cosmetics, Silk Naturals, Dreamworld Minerals, Meow, Buff'd, and some others.
A pretty good, and cheap way to sample from various brands (some of which were my first time to try), IMO. I've only tinkered with the two blushes from Cory Cosmetics - Cosmo Pink and Promise - and I really like the colors. The goods came with a kind thank you note from Pammy. Thank you as well!

I've been keeping up with all the news but I'm not sure how to express how I feel about the issue just yet, just that I support uniqueness and creativity!
