The Make up inventory of 2020

Hi lovelies,

I was written to update on my makeup for you in January. So my plan for the year in terms of make up:

One fresh beauty products per month! Rather try to use up and enjoy my current items and panning them, specially my eyeshadows.

Firstly let’s see my makeup box and count:

I would not say that I have an enormous collection of makeup like in the lot of the declutter videos on YouTube, but I still feel a bit overwhelming of them so I will try to desize my collection in 2020 and only add 12 new items and of course saving some money.

I own:

  • 12 lipsticks,
  • 7 eyeshadow palettes,
  • 4 highlighters,
  • 3 foundations,
  • 3 blushes,
  • 3 mascaras,
  • 3 bronzers,
  • 3 eyeliners,
  • 3 lipliners,
  • 3 concealers
  • 2 faceprimers,
  • 2 setting powders,
  • 2 lip oils,
  • 1 face palette,
  • 1 lash glue,
  • 1 fake lash,
  • 1 lightening drop,
  • 1 single eye pigment,
  • 1 eyeshadow primer,
  • 1 lipprimer

So in total of 60 items… so my goal is to downsize it to 40 by mainly using up the current items I have. Also my other aim it to finally reach the total cruelty free make up inventory  by the end of the year

iIMG_6729

2 items are missing: my Lanolip oil and a Becca undereye corrector- I think I left them at work …

I just have to do a bit of decluttering now too, which would be:

The E.l.f. Concealer, which is broken so it is a bit too dry now + the color is not a match for me (fair is too dark), my everyday Trend it up mascara is just too old to use, finally my friend came to pick up my old MAC products, which I was gifted for her (2 palettes and a lipstick). (55)

I am on the way to panning this month:

Bobbi Brown bronzer, Nars Orgasm blush, The Balm: Mary Louminizer and using up my Chanel setting powder, The Body Shop Tint Nude BB, Trend it up Lip Oil, Estee Lauder Coral an MAC mini Chili lipstick. Of course I try to use only one eyeshadow in this month, which is my Tarte Tartelette in Bloomson palette.

So I can only buy 12 pieces of make up, so what would be if I would just buy them now: (I try to be realistic as I would need some replacement during the year for sure)

  1. It Cosmetics CC (replacement)
  2. Urban Decay Perversion mascara in mini (replacement)
  3. RMS beauty: Eye Polish
  4. Lisa Eldridge: Velvet Ribbon lipstick
  5. Fenty Beauty: Gloss Bomb
  6. Fenty Beauty: Sun Starlk’r Instant Warmth Bronzer
  7. Too Faced: Better Than Sex Waterproof mini mascara
  8. Huda Beauty Mercury Retrograde palette
  9. Lilah B.: Divine Duo- Lips and Cheeks
  10. Charlotte Tilbury brown eyeliner
  11. Charlotte Tilbury lip liner
  12. Hourglass: Veil Mineral Primer

OMG it is such a huge wishlist, however it can be changed throught out the year.

“How many money?” -2

Hi lovelies,

After the post yesterday, let’s continue counting with my beauty haJune vanity updateuls:

HAIR:

I do not have the most expensive purchases on a photo, but deffinetely the Olaplex and The Ordinary Argan Oil, used up 3 conditioners and ca. 4 sampoo with my hubby, so I can just estimate: 20 000 HUF (ca. 63 EUR)

That is why there is no point to count the body products…

FACE Care:

Again not all of them are on the pictures, but I do have a total: 42 224 HUF (ca. 130 EUR)

Make up:

maybe my most documented acts, so I can also mention who much I used up in a year and also, which I did not workedfor me:

Okay, the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow and the NYX Palette was gifted only. Total: 69 572 HUF (ca. 220 EUR) out of 10 000 HUF (ca. 32 EUR) used up, while 5,7 EUR was not for me at all (waste).

I hope you had enjoyed. How much you have spent this year? How much money you have wasted?

Xoxo,

October haul

Hi lovelies,

So after a month without spending, I have promised a bigger haul like and there is it. Coupon days were between the 9th to 13th October like every half year, so here what I have purchased:

Drugstore is not that interesting, so I am just going to attach the photo here and write so thoughts below.

B65C97A3-1249-428F-B53F-C75DE511739C

In a kind of way I have failed to do my zero waste journey. I still bought shower gels, which I wanted to skip and also regarding the cruelty free journey I have purchased some maybe file, like the Nature Box which is owned by Henkel so I was not enough careful. In terms of my period I just can not have the reusable pads or diva cups in use, maybe later I am going to change my mind. My tooth care is the same: I don’t know how the natural toothpastes can guarantee my tooth health and also if there is a Curaprox dupe in a super soft bamboo brush or not.  All the others are CF stuffs exept the blench.

clothes:

I have a wishlist which I am strictly keeping: so this month my leather biker jacket is the piece to invest in. I have ordered it only from Mango- I know it is fast fashion, but the material is great and decent and it is still a lot for me. Also I was so happy to see that they shipped it on bike from their Budapest warehouse and packed in paper instead of plastics.

 

Other basic is a leggings from H&M which I have purchased upon returning a lot of clothes which I can not use, neither sell nor giveaway or recycle. Please note that it is my one and only leggings now. I also wanted to by some socks but finally I just choose this one with the cute sausage dogs on it.

And the followings: the basic turtle neck black, the hair buckle (was the half as at Zara), the cashmere hair strap and the loose fitting dress- it is so cute, but a way too big so rather will wear it later- hope soon.

From Cultbeauty I have ordered two Charlotte Tilbury products: her new foundation and a limited edition Hot lips 2 lipstick.

From the Airbrush Flawless Foundation I have choosen shade 3 cool, which is my perfect skin shade. After 2 use, I would say it is a really great middle coverage foundation, for events and go outs just perfect for me. ( I know a lot of you would use it on daily basis, but I rather stay sheer normally) Hot lips 2 I have ordered Carina’s star which is a peachy pink in this beautiful refillable packaging.

Calzedonia:

I wanted to purchase two stockings from them, but ended up 3 of them due to the shop assistant fail, no worries I am in them nearly all the time. So they are the shaping type ones because much more better qualit and  long lasting, which I am diffenetely go for.

Others: 2 books and a pair of Levi’s Jeans to my Hubby.

The flat

In October we are having a bit bigger investment: our Glass wall in the flat, which will be ready hopefully next month and finally creating our real living room and a separate bedroom. Despite of that I have purchased a letter board, which my husband has already hate, but we do not have anything of our walls, and that one I just want to instal some photo shelf or ledge, which I might need to do DIY for the perfect fit.

I hope you have enjoyed this haul and keep waiting for the November one – it is also going to be a bigger one for sure;).

 

Xoxo,

 

 

 

 

 

August haul

Hi lovelies,

This is again a monthly hauls like usually, but August is my Birthday so most of the things will be gifted for me and also I try to be using less, so for myself I only bought things which I need.

Lets start with my husband’s gift: is a handmade leather bag, which is so georgous in this light cream shade and I prefer to have a crossbody strappy which this bag has. It is not so huge, but big enough for my iPad mini or to keep my takeaway bottle in it.

img_6194.jpg

From my parents I received a few products which I was really into. Okay to begin the story with: they were asking what I wish, want I want for my Birthday and I was saying oh nothing, I have everything ect. Then my sister give my Feelunique login to them because she knows that I have a wishlist on it and they ordered a Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow, an Urban Decay Primer Portion and my fav mascara the Perversion. The pack in not arrived yet, but it is due today to my work place.

I got the NYX Ultimate palette from my bff. Honestly I have never ever thought buying this, but I have thinking to buy a Pupa blue single shadow or a ABH- Riviera Palette, but now everything in it and evenmore colors, which I can use with my natural ones…

From my sister I’ve got The Body Shop Japanese Matcha Tea food mask, which I tried once in the single use version and it was even better than the Himalyan one. From my brother and his girlfriend a vegan sampoo – conditioner and a cute hair ring (yellow on the picture).

img_6192.jpg

And yes the things that I bought: this cute, cheap necklance from H&M I think it will be super cute for the beach, The Body Shop Camomille Butter I have repurchased and Coconut mist was a just for fun thing. Lush 7 to 3 cleansing pad and the sunblocker for our upcoming holiday.

Happy Birthday to Hungary too!

 

May beauty situations

Hi lovelies,

We do have a rainy May, so spending a lot of time indoor and doing a lot of works in the hotel and also from home as the conference season is on.

So I was diagnized with seborrhea at the end of March, I always have dandruff in Winter, but never thought that much, so I got some cream and medicals and went to allergy test, which shown my intolarance od diary products. So I am not drinking or eating them for 6 weeks and I tend to say my skin also looks much better and having lack of seborrhea which is such great. So I try to find the best sampoo possible as the medical sampoos are just occasional use only. The Body Shop Banana shampoo is one of my favourite, but it has too much parfume in it. Nature Box contains a bit less of fagrance, but I am not sure is they are CF, so just has purchased an Inecto Argan Shampoo, which is vegan and cruelty free and has lack of parfum. So just hope that it is going to work.

Now I have to admit that even I am try to be cruelty free I am not vegan and do not want to be vegan even if we have days without meat, sometimes I love to eat meat, specially fishes and also I can not suggest restaurant without having an overview of their cuisine.

My recent empties:

Bobbi Brown Brow pencil and lipstick in Sandwash Pink are not CF, so will not repurchase them, I already have a dupe of the lipstick in a Charlotte Tilbury one. Tarte lifted mascara is a nice brown mascara, it is getting a way too dry and used it up duuring the last 6-7 months, I do not know whether I will repurchase it or not, because it gives a really nice look but nothing extra for the price.  The Ordinary serum foundation is changed into a very bad shape: oil seperated from the other parts, color changed, so I can not use it any more – it is openned for 9 months…

I have took back 6 products to MAC and choose a lipstick in Faux for one of my greatest friend’s birthday.

9741026-1-faux

Reflecting on recent purchases:

My top of top is the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk lipstick I just love it, it is the perfect lipstick: nice color, easy to wear, matte but not dry and the rosegold package is not stunning. While the Pupa I’m Pupa matte lipstick also such a great shade, but it is a bit more on the drier side, but do not forget it is half priced to CT one. I have discovered two really great Trend it up products: Expert lip primer & care is a great due to MAC prep+ prime lip for the price of a tenth and also their lip oil is such a miracle.

img_5701

It cosmetics cc also a great product, however I have ordered light- medium based on the sephora.com foundation finder, it is a bit dark for me, so might be during the summer I can make a use of, but it is look great on the skin. The Body Shop Lightening touch concealer is a great dupe for YSL Touch Eclat, while E.l.f. gel liner is nice to replace Mac blacktrack liner.

I am unable to use the Lano Allover cream as my husband just adore and taking it everywhere;). I did not have the opportunity to try out the other lanolips products as I am still thinking to keeping both or giving one to my sister. Also The Ordinary Sunscreen is useless in this bad weather so…

E.l.f. Daily hydration moisturizer and Beauty Shield spray are nice products, but have not decided if them empty will I repurchase them or not.  I am not going to repurchase the Trend it up Eyeshadow Cream, it is nice on the top of other eyeshadows but not long wearing and not waterproof at all.

So I hope you enjoyed reading.

Xoxo,

High end beauty products I wish to try

This post will be again a wish list like I did previously: My Sephora wishlist Spring wardrobe wishes but it will be expensive products, which I have never ever tried. Might you will see that I mentioning more products or same brands If you have already try these, comment below what you think I should invest in. Sometimes I will mention 2 or 3 icons, even I try to minimize:) I also wanted to find the sizes and US prices… and photos from google!

FACE

Primer:

  • Marc Jacobs- Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer: “It hydrates, smooths, and preps the face for makeup application.” all what I would need and the packing is so classy and stylish. It is ideal for normal and dry skin so might be my combination skin would not love this, but it is contains coconut exact…hmm
    • $44/30ml=1oz at Sephora.com

marcjacobs

Foundation:

  • Chanel: Vitalumiere Aqua: “Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup SPF 15″I love light coverage like BB or CC creams, this is a water based foundation, which you have to shake before usage, although it is called sunscreen makeup with spf 15 it is not much protection in it, but can be ideal for a fresh Spring or Winter makeup. Why they put perfume and probpylparaben in it?
    • $50/30ml=1 oz at chanel.com

  • Giorgio Armani- Luminous Silk Foundation: I have heard too many good things about this, even it contains parabens… I have tried once at their make-up counter and OMG all day long, light to medium coverage, all I want from a foundation.
    • $64/30ml=1oz at sephora.com

giorgio

Concealer:

  • Yves Saint Laurent: Touche Éclat- “The original face highlighter and #1 essential for your makeup bag.” I only had dupes of this from NYX or Pupa or L’Oréal, it is so expensive but as I have tried my mom’s one (she always repurchase it) it is one of the best high end concealer (which is actually a highlighter)and under eye brightener…
    • $38/2,5ml at yslbeautyus.com

Touche_Eclat_01_L1.2

Contour:

  • Cream:Charlotte Tilbury – Hollywood Contour Duo:I do not have a contour cream at home, but I like the idea of this products and really good reviews on the sites… easy to apply and a hint of simmer, which is ideal for my pale skin tone.
    • $67/2×12 ml=0,14 oz at charlottetilbury.com

  • Powder: I rather use a bonzer-highlighter combo

Blush:

  • Chanel- Joues Contraste: “Unique powder blusher imparts a flattering radiance to cheeks. Remarkably silky texture for easy application and subtle shading. Accentuate cheekbones for a youthful look. Softer tones around the eyes soften expression and rejuvenate.” Do not know the shade yet, because so much are so beautiful: In love- nice baby pink, Élégance- mauve pink ect.
    • $45/0,17oz at chanel.com

Bronzer:

  • Guerlain- Terracotta The Bonzing Poweder: the original matt formula in so many shades. “This bronzing powder naturally reproduces varying shades of the sun, offering women an instant natural glow, at any time of year, in one quick, easy motion. Its formula, enriched with moisturising active ingredients, does not dry out the skin. It ensures long-lasting comfort.” Might will buy it as my Bobbi Brown will be empty….

Highlighter:

  • Hourglass- Ambient Lighting Palette: 3 pans have every color you need for a pale skin, it is comes with a nice big mirror.
    • $62/3×3,3g=0,11oz at hourglasscosmetics.com

Powder:

  • Guerlain- Météorites: this powder is just simply stunning and really nice to have it next to a matt powder for glowing days. Can not decide between the compact,voyage or the pearls. “Today, the Météorites hold the secret to Stardust technology – a light-creating polymer, which transforms light invisible to the naked eye into a pure and endless glow on the skin. A subtle blend of matte, rosy and radiant blue-toned white pearls, combined with corrective coloured pearls – yellow to counter redness, pink for freshness and mauve to catch the light – they light up the face in an illuminating and corrective halo to give endless radiance.”
    • $63 /25g=0,88oz at nordstrom.com

EYES

Brows:

  • Anastasia Beverly Hills- Dipbrow Pomade: it is a so big cult now, of course I want to try it like crazy. “Smooth application, waterpoof, smudge-proof, can be used as brow definer and as eye liner.”
    • Ł19/4g at cultbeauty.co.uk

ahb

Liner:

  • Kat von D- Tattoo Liner: Liners in my everyday make up to go, maybe cat eye is my signature of look, so far I want to try the most hyped back liner (Topper) at market now. I nearly purchased it last month in Bangkok at Sephora but there were out of stock of  black color…
    • $20/0,55ml=0,19 oz at sephora.com

allure-rca-2017-kat-von-d-tattoo-liner-review

Eyeshadows: that is the category which I would say too many good ones to choose and it is really hard to buy a real high-end palette in Hungary, that is why I only have: Mac eyeshadows in 4 or L’Oréal: La Palette Nude- which I wish to replace with a real good nude palette like Tarte or Urban Decay. Too Faced Chocolate palette is pretty but I think I would not like the smell of it and ABH- Modern Renessaince is just stanning. So what do you think ? Comment below your recommendation.

Mascara:

  • Dior-Diorshow: It is blonder and fuller the lashes and it has in brown and blue too with my favourite type of brush…
    • $29,50/10ml=0,33 oz at sephora.com

LIPS

Lipstick:

  • Yves Saint Laurent: Volupté Tint-In-Balm: its packaging is more that stunning. “A lipstick combining melting balm care with glowing sheer color”- tend to have a nude form them.
