April low buy haul

Hi lovelies,

This is the end of an other month, a month when we were mostly locked down so we sent our money on a totally different way: more food and vitamins as we were at home a lot and had time to cook, also due to the Covid19 I had to focus on saving more money for the upcoming 3 months as my salary will be like 50% lower, which is pretty hard to every hospitality worker, but at least I have a job. Firstly I was pretty stressed out of the situation, but now I just let it go by settling a daily routine for myself and investing into my self by studying languages, hotel training (kind of boring so-so), sustainable fashion and business course.

So I was pretty much on the track, only sent 36% of my income on needs instead of the 50%, put 27% on saving account, but I can take even more on that, only send 9,9% on wants:).

Concerning to my wants I was sent some money on my husband’s Nicorette patches, because finally he started to quit smoking:), that is one thing that I am more than happy to support him. We have bought a couple of outdoor plants to the balconies- even more becoming a plant parent…

Skincare: new N.A.E. bio micellar water, I will see how is it work as I have not tired yet…

Makeup: I used to had this is black, now I was repurchased it in brown: the cheap favourite Trend it up No. 1 mascara

As I sent more time at home I realized I need a better mat than polifoam, so I was invest in a Manduka Yoga Mat, which due to arrive next till Tuesday.

So I was pretty much on a low buy side, of course I was looking for some sales or coupons online, but they was not on time at all (strictly according to my wishlist) and I wanted to buy a Sezane Gaspard cardigan secondhand and I constantly wrote to several people on Facebook Market place or Depop and noone answers???! that is crazy. I might need to try on Vestiare Collective, but sometimes people want to sell it for on an even higher than its new retail price,which is also crazy. I need to look for so more whites too.

Xoxo,

October mini haul

Hi lovelies,

This is a mini haul of the end of October, yes I already had Glamour days haul  and these were mainly ordered by that time, just the only arrived now.

Firstly, Tarte had their 18th Birthday and had some offer like free shipping without limitation on one day so I have ordered their Shape Tape Concealer in the shade Light Natural and I was so lucky winning their Birthday set, which was coming with my order (even thought they have written ca. 3 days later).

Birthday set came in a sequined cluth and the inside:

  • Tartelette Flirt palette: cardboard palette with 6 mini shades, perfect for travel :4 of those are matte and 2 shimmery, color touch is just the dupe of MAC Expensive pink
  • Lifted Mascara: Brown sporty line waterproof ( I just think so mascara),
  • Lip sculptor: intoxicating limited edition shade with lipstick and lip gloss on the other side,
  • Tartist: Totes lipliner- hot pink color liner.

The Body Shop: I have repurchased my favourite clay mask: Himalayan Charcoal (update soon regarding my skincare) and they have launched a Micellar water in their Camomile line, so badly want to try.

Bonami has written after a week of Glamour that they can not sent the velvet puff, which I have ordered and paid, so they will send me back my money… pff ever the worst costumer service communication which I have heard, no excuse or sorry they are advertising something that they can not send to the costumers and they do not write one day after your purchase (AKA I have lost the opportunity to order with 20% off from somewhere else) and they do not offer any compensation, when I have written back and what would be my compensation, they wrote back 2 000 HUF (cupon) -which is less than 10% of my order- ca. 8 USD- are you kidding? How you have ever considered that I will order from you anything else? They should come to a Hotel cross training of handling complaints. NEVER EVER AGAIN… On Saturday they have send an email, it is on it way, how comes? So the whole we can not fullfill your request was just a lie. Monday the Courier company started to deliver it, of course they called me when I was busy at work, tried to call them back 20 minutes later(and 5 times more) and just have tracked on their site that they took it back to the sender… WHY? How I can call them back if they do not pick up the phone at all? They should try 3 times to deliver before send it back, what did I do wrong OMG? So for 2 days now, I am just calling the customer service and try to get my baby back… so horrible.

The bronzer issue with some haul

Hi everyone!

This post will be a mixture of my hauls and my makeup kit and it is going to be also a first impression.

Below you can see my recent purchases:

Spring wardrobe wishes was included my white mulberry silk top, which was a bit expensive, but really looking forward to wear it even it is a bit see-thought, but excellent with a nude bra. My other blush sneaker purchase was a bit more tricky, I went to Massimo Dutti to purchase the top and this shoe together, my shoe size is EUR 37.5 and usually half size is not available, they only had EUR 38 which was a way more big, so after a lot of calls by the shop assistant to other stores she helped me to order it online. I went home to check my confirmation and did not come, but I saw on their  site this shoe went to sale 14995 HUF (ca 50 EUR) while I have purchased it for 22995 HUF (ca. 80 EUR) I was so depressed… Slept badly and checked their website in the middle of the night and thankfully the sales only for size EUR 35 and all the other are out of stocks and I got the confirmation about the delivery for the next day. Size EUR 37 is just perfect:).

Recent my beauty purchases:

  • repurchases: MAC-Ruby Woo(missing from photo),MAC- Brush Cleanser and Clarins- Eclat Minute (07)
  • newies: L’Oréal- Paradise Extatic and Physicians Formula- Butter Bronzer

Impressions: L’Oréal- Paradise Extatic has already reviewed by much of you. Even it is existing for a half-year here I have not been too fascinating to run for it, so my Bobbi Brown’s Smokey Eye Mascara was empty, so I bought this cheaper one, as a lot of people said it is like Too Faced: Better Than Sex Mascara which I love but I can not buy it in Hungary. Honestly I hate that in our drugstores most of the makeups are just on the shelf without any cover and that is why some people open and use the products, not the testers… This babe was in a paper too:) and I love it a lot, even thought I think Too Faced still much better, but it is a really good alternative to BB Smokey Eye for the half price. In generally I love L’Oréal mascaras, but this is even over the top of them. Price: 3999 HUF (ca. 13 EUR)

Before my Bronzers, here is my  My Brush kit , My parfume collection and My lipsticks

Physicians Formula- Butter Bronzer: I would purchase it since it was come to Hungary this year January, but it was always out of stock at DM. Yesterday, I was just to buy some handcream, Carmex and Toothbrush to my husband, when I saw PF’s display was fulfilled. The price tag: 5499 HUF(ca. 18 EUR) bit more expensive than the other drugstore makeup and there was 2 shades Light Bronzer and Bronzer- on the tester both looked nearly the same, so I have picked up Bronzer. Packing: in a way really nice: good colors and Hawaii feeling, mirror, but there is a useless sponge/applicator and the mirror is in the back , why not is the same place as the products? The pan is big enough, color is beautiful almost full matt, but I was expecting to have this more creamy, but after using it with my brush it is quiet powdery and the coconut smell is just too much for me…

Compare it to my two other bronzer:

  • Pupa Sun Bronzer and Shine: Pupa’s packaging is much better, even I do not like to have the highlighter and bronzer in the same pan, so I can only use it during the summer, when I prefer to shiny bronzer or separately to my eyes. PS’s color is not as yellow as Pupa’s, which is better. Pupa has a bit less smell. Price range is the same.
  • Bobbi Brown Bonzing Powder- Stonestreet: it is more expensive, nearly the double but it is highly bet the PF is pigmentation, color, packaging, formula and no smell:).

Xoxo,
