Monthly Spending & Wish List ❥ March 2016

March Monthly Spending & Wishlist


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 $$$

Curly's 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 ♥♥♥

Wish List

Sephora VIB Sale 2016

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??!!!)

You can read my post on “The List” Here 

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

      1. I use the Real Techniques Sponge to blend it. I kind of press it in and then roll the Sponge over the top after blending it. I also use the Sponge to set it with the It Cosmetics Pressed Bye Bye Pores powder.

  1. I’m saving my gift cards too. I have some from Christmas that I’m going to save until Fall I think.
    Wow you have $328 to spend – do you think you’ll use it all?
    That MJ brush is sooooo soft. Ugh, I do not NEED. I’ve told myself I’m not getting a brush before I go to Japan. I’m going to buy a brush (or brushES) there – Japan, the land of beautiful makeup brushes!

    1. I just bought LM Amethyst and you NEED this, such a GORGEOUS color !
      I hope I don’t spent the 328$ … 😝
      I agree that for the brushes you should wait … Japan will be soon enough !
      BTW I can’t wait for your review on the Viseart palette! 😛😘
      Note: Go at Sephora just to pick up the 100 points LM Gloss (online it’s already sold-out) … The shade is Bare Baby !
      😂 Don’t you love my passionate side !!!

      1. I decided not to get the Viseart this time around! I’m going to save my spending money for Japan instead of going crazy at this VIB sale! Plus, it’s only 15%! I can wait! 😀

      2. I know we all get so excited for 15% … but you know what, even a small percentage off in Canada is a great deal 😀
        I won’t get the Viseart either … The Cool Mattes will still be there in October and I have already some awesome summer palettes !!! (LW Rivages is still going strong … even if the shadows are weird looking!)
        You are so bad for me, thank god we don’t live in the same city 😛 Yesterday I went to Sephora for samples of the Marc Jacobs Genius Foundation & Dior Nude Air Serum and next thing I know I’ve got 3 Nars samples … I am wearing Nars Sheer Glow today and I’m “IN LOVE” ! I love my Smashbox and Lancôme but this is something else … I almost look flawless 😉 That’s your fault, tomorrow I’ll try the Luminous one and the day after the Tinted Moisturizer. 💸💸💸😁
