Most of you already know that I’ve decided to kick off the year with a serious low-buy on all things related to beauty. That means less makeup, skincare, body care & tools will crack my makeup treasure chest (The post on my low-buy). 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)
February Spending = 72$ (28$ in the bank)
March hit me like a ton of brick! I’ve been eyeing so many new products for Spring/Summer 2016, that this low-buy is starting to be very hard to deal with. March was a disaster and I had to use my 200$ Gift Card that I was cherishing for this week VIB sale to keep my budget. My self-control is being tested.
March Spending $$$
Sephora Favorites Paint It Pink : 48$CND
bareMinerals Bareskin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer (Fair): 25$CND
Surratt Relevée Lash Curler : 27$CND
March Spending: 100$🇨🇦 😂 Boy! I’m good. I promise you that this month, there will be a review of all my purchases (past & present). For the moment, there is too much stuff in my head and too little time to do them all…
Note : Returned Product: Viseart Eyebrow & Eyeshadow palette (Structure)
My low-buy is still happening and going strong… With the help of my precious emergency 200$ gift card that came to the rescue and preserved my reputation of Frugal Ingrid! ooopps
Mac Pro Longwear Paint Pot (Rubenesque) 26$CND
Mac Mineralize Skinfinish (Lightscapade) 37$CND
Gift Card: 63$CND (137$ left for the VIB Sale)
♥♥♥ April VIB sale budget is 100$CND + 63$CND (January) + 28$CND (February) = 191$ + Gift Card (137$CND) = Max. 328$CND ♥♥♥
I just made my VIB sale list; maybe I should have look at my budget before dreaming of all those wonderful products that now, have a lesser chance of garnering my collection… (Why again am I in a low-buy??!!!)

Note: This morning, I already bought online Marc Jacobs Face II Brush & Nars Impassioned Blush (the blush was not on “The List”)
Happy Shopping my Beauties!
