♥ No-Buy Recap…♥


I almost can’t believe that for another month, I haven’t spent one dime on makeup or skincare products. Truth be told, I really thought that it would be hard to stick to my Necessity Buy Only clause, but, since 2017 started, I’m on a roll. Truly, I’m excited and so proud of myself…

Honestly, it wasn’t hard at all to stick with it. I have some newfound will power, and I would really like to transpose this added strength to another area of my life (my diet) but that’s another story. I’m probably repeating myself but I’m really enjoying my present collection and I really don’t need to boost it whatsoever. At the moment, I get a bigger rush from finishing an item than when I buy something new.

January spending : 0$ & February spending : 0$

♥ New Products added to my Wishlist…♥

Givenchy Teint Couture Long-Wearing Fluid Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20

Teint Couture Long-Wearing Fluid Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20

I’m dying to try this foundation. Unfortunately, it won’t be this year since I have a lot of open bottles that need some major panning but it’s now on my radar for future considerations. If you’ve followed me for awhile now, you probably know that I’ve been (and intrinsically still am) an eyeshadow palette junkie but for a year now, I’ve added a huge foundation addiction to my persona. I’m now all about finding the best canvas!

Bobbi Brown Cheek Glow Palette in Pink Opal 

Bobbi Brown Cheek Glow Palette

This creamy goodness is screaming my name. I’m still debating if I will allow myself one product for next April and also one in November for Sephora’s VIB sales. If so, it could be this one… SO PRETTY!

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Crush Body Fragrance Mist

Brazilian Crush Body Fragrance Mist

Unfortunately, I don’t have a birthday coming soon unless BeardMan decides to celebrate Furry Mother’s Day 🐶? I want this mist; I mean WANT IT really bad. It’s supposed to smell exactly like my beloved Bum Bum body cream: Pistachio and salted caramel!!  Do I need to say more …

Have a beautiful Sunday my beauties!

♥ No-Buy Recap…♥

Monthly Recap | Curly Spring Blossom

I’m very proud to say that I haven’t spent one dime (0 dollar) on beauty products in January. Of course, there are items I would have liked to try, but seriously, it wasn’t that bad. I’m enjoying my favourite collections and rediscovering a few that somehow were forgotten while I was more into buying than “makeuping”. Of course, doing the biggest purge ever also made me question my purchase habits. I HATE throwing money in the garbage, and I’ve just put thousands (Yes, you read right, THOUSANDS) in the trash in January. I now solemnly swear that I will NEVER consume that much and go back to my yesteryears. I’m still a beauty junkie, but nowadays, I prefer looking instead of buying every new releases.

I now live by this simple phrase: “need instead of want”. Thinking before grabbing something is just enough to keep me at bay. However, truth be told, I wasn’t as good with my clothing spending in January. I bought 4 winter coats and a few base layers for my day-to-day activities. The coats were a necessity since I don’t fit in all my small sized super winter coats and for the undergarments, BeardMan  was getting tired of me stealing every one he possessed. Thinking about it, I went from one obsession to another, but what can I say 😉

♥ New Products added to my Wishlist…♥

RMS Beauty Tinted “Un” Powder

Wishlist 2017 | Curly Spring Blossom

I love RMS products and when my beloved Laura Mercier Translucent Powder will be finished, I would like to try this cruelty-free one.

Sephora Collection PRO Airbrush Blender #78 & PRO Core Diffuser Angled #95

Last year, I bought at least 10 Sephora Collection Pro Brushes and I’m in love with all of them. I really think that they are reasonably priced for such a good quality. These two are definitely on my radar. On the other hand, Sephora just launched double-ended brushes and am I the only one who hate them for the simple reason that it’s hard to store them while one end gets all messy?

May Coop Raw Sauce

Wishlist 2017 | Curly Spring Blossom

An essence with maple tree sap, what’s not to like. Being Canadian, we do love our maple stuff. The reviews are so good that I need to try it at some point.

Viseart Neutral Warm Matte 

Spring Summer makeup 2017 (Curly Spring Blossom)

This baby will be mine (one of these days). I don’t have an equivalent assortment of very warm neutral shadows in my collection (I swear I don’t…, well I think I don’t). I want it, I want it …

Have a beautiful Sunday my beauties!

Monthly Spending & Wish List ❥ April 2016

April 2016 Monthly spending & Wish List


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 2016…

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 $$$

April 2016 Monthly spending & Wish List

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 ! 

Wish List

April 2016 Monthly spending & Wish List

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 ???
