Low buy haul August

Hi lovelies,

I know I am quite late writting this post, but it is because of our fantastic holiday, which I am going to post more later.

So on my own purchases were also mostly related to my holiday and I think I have so really good recommendation for you too.

Firstly about my Cultbeauty order: I have reordered two of my favourites the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ in Light (yeah it is one shade lighter than my previous one as it will goes with my skin later on Autumn/Winter. Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara in travel size, which is the bets waterproof mascara that I have ever used I do not think I have to explain way, just say it was my bride mascara without any lashes. The last thing was to order the Versed Day dissolve Cleansing Balm, which I have to tried yet, but so disappointed with their packaging: big, double layer plastic holder for a tiny amount of products for 22 GBP… I hope at least the product will be good, but I will not cheat my Body Shop one with it anymore because of the packaging…

Than about my sunscreen issue- so once we went to a local lake and I used the same DM own marked sunscreen like last year, but they changed something: it smelled like alcohol OMG I had a serious allergic reaction, so thought it away after that. I wanted to buy a physical sunscreen, which I have choosen Bioderma Photoderm Minaral SPF 50, which is a zink- oxid based one. Also purchased their oil with SPF 30, it was the best smell ever and makes you tanned in the most beautiful bronzy way so higly recommend as well as their After Sun cream too to reach amazing bronzed skin like I have now.

The last haul pieces were from a local drug store: Ziaja Bronzing oil, which was recommended by one of my friends: cocoa butter spray, which I have used once daily with the SPF 50 as it has to put under a sunscreen to help the better bronzing for the skin and it is oily so much, it was not bad anyway. Trend It Up Waterproof eyeliner- it was a big no no: color do not play off and just not waterproof at all, okay it was cheap…

As it was my birthday month I got so gifts too and we finally received our new TV board, which is hand-made, wood and we ordered some persolized knobs on it.

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

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.
