Most of you already know that I’ve decided to start the year with a serious low-buy on all things related to beauty. That means less makeup, skincare, body care & tools will enter my makeup treasure chest.(The post on my low-buy) So, since I won’t be buying as much stuff on my little 100$/month budget, I decided to keep you posted on my monthly spending & on my oh! so evolving, realistic wish list.
January Spending = 37$ (Yay! 63$ in the bank)
If January was a breeze on this low-buy, February was another ball game. Even though I was able to respect my frugal budget, all month long I was bombarded by new spring collections, launches, ads and YouTubers promoting this and that… and let’s just say that restraining myself was really hard. I don’t know how many times I said damn Low-buy or f%?& this. Still, I was angry but good. Thank god for Valentine’s day and the Mac Contour & Sculpt Yourself Palette
February Spending $$$
All great reviews coming soon. I can already tell you that I love all these wonderful products ...
February Spending = 72$ !! My God, I’m a human squirrel 🌰🌰. Even with all those winter clearance sales and all these launches, I’ve managed to save 91$ from my initial budget (63$ from January + 28$ from February)!! 👏🏻 Happy dance …
Well, I guess I changed a few things from my January Wish-List … Winter has left a few scars and I need to find some solutions: my lips have dried up like sandpaper and my nails are just horrible …
♥ The new Shiseido Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 have raised passions and received rave reviews from the industry critics and, a great bonus, it’s oil-free (yay!). Another foundation to buy… What’s up with me and this foundation addiction anyway?
♥ The Surratt Relevé Lash Curler is supposed to be “lash” changing (Already in the bag for the April Sephora VIB sale)…
♥ Viseart Eyeshadow & Eyebrow palette. For me, this is a perfect palette with one minor detail and I still can not get my head around that: why on earth would Viseart put cream products beside powder ones – this is ridiculous!!!
♥Bite Beauty Maple Agave Lip Mask. Like I said in my intro, temperatures are so changing this winter that my lips are cracking so badly; they even bleed. I own tons of lip treatments but nothing seems to work so, time to try something else.
♥Formula X The Fix – Nail treatment. I want to try this one because I need a strengthening formula with some shining properties and a little rosy hue that I’ll be able to use alone while still looking polished.
♥Guerlain Métériotes Illuminating Powder Pearls (Clair 02). Years ago, I had these Métériotes and I don’t remember those being extraordinaire. Recently, I met an old acquaintance and she was glowing! I asked what new product she was using and she told me she bought these Pearls. Time to revisit this product and see for myself if it evolved during all those years…
♥bareMinerals Bareskin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer (Fair). Time to try this concealer since it’s been on my wish-list for ever. I’m just waiting for a deluxe-sample I really want since I’m on a low-budget.
♥bareMinerals 5 in 1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow (Blushing Pink or Elegant Taupe). I love this product as much as my Mac Paint Pots, that says a lot! Probably one of the most underrated makeup product on the market.
♥Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Color (Amethyst). It’s no secret that during summer I prefer cream products. Caviar Sticks have such a great formula, it’s easy to swipe all over your lid for that express summer look.
Thanks for stopping by my beauties!
