Most of you already know that I’ve decided to kick off the new 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$/month budget, I’ve decided to keep you posted on my monthly spending & on my oh! so evolving, realistic wish list.
January Spending = 37$ (Yay! 63$ in the bank)
February Spending = 72$ (28$ in the bank)
March Spending = 100$ (I barely made it)
April was disaster! When you have a Sephora VIB sale, combined with some new launches in time for the summer season, I did buy more than I should have … I thought of a plan to spend more without eventually having to take money from my wallet. So this was my rational plan and my maximum budget :
♥♥♥ April VIB sale budget is 100$🇨🇦
+ January savings (63$)
+ February savings (28$)
= 191$ + Gift Card (137$🇨🇦) = Max. 328$🇨🇦
♥♥♥ How did I do?
April Spending $$$
Nars Blush in Impassionned: 38$
Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Amethyst: 35$
bareMinerals 5 in 1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow SPF 15 in Sweet Spice: 24.50$
Sephora Rouge Gel Lip Liner in Melon-Choly (05) : 15$
Anastasia Beverly Hills Angle Cut Brush #15: 22$
Tarte Powder Player Bamboo Pressed Powder Brush: 41$
Marc Jacobs The Face II Brush: 60$
Shiseido Tinted Uv Protector SPF43: 37$
Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Terre-Neuve (Light 0): 54$
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Mont Blanc (Light 2): 58$
Total: 384.50$ (All from my Sephora VIB Sale Haul)
*** 193.50$ to recover = 2 months at 100$/month budget !!! ***
Darn! I thought I was OK but once again, this is what happens when you send a makeup addict in a Sephora Sale. Worst is that I didn’t use my GC… I guess someone is going on a no-buy for 60 day?!? My next 2 monthly spending budgets are now big fat 0$ and I still hesitate on my penance: a whip, tarring and feathering,… kidding but, I’m disappointed in myself for going overboard !
No Wish List this month nor next month for that matter since there is no money in the makeup piggy bank. Dreaming is free but there is nothing worst than creating false hopes!!!
Who’s with me on a 2-month No-Buy ???
