I received the BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel 14 Color Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette through a giveaway from MyStyleInsideOut:
I’ve been wearing this and playing around with different combinations for about a month now. Here are my thoughts.
Since I skipped May’s accountability post, I’m lumping both months together. Let’s recap, in April, I was able to carry over $122.48. My combined budget for May and June was $100. So in total, I had $222.48 to play with. Let’s see how I did. First, let’s get the elephant in the room out of the way, I hauled BIG time in Japan:
But in the rule books of Low-Buys, out of country purchases do not count. I didn’t create the rules, I just follow them, mkay? 😉 But I did a lot of shopping at home too, especially prior to my trip…
I’m really back-logged with my posts as you can see, as this was meant to be posted before I left for vacation, but I didn’t have time to take photos. Ah well, better late than never! 😉
So I wasn’t really planning on doing much makeup shopping before my trip but I’ve been finding some AMAZING stuff at Winners! I just couldn’t NOT buy this stuff:
Burberry! Armani! Nars! Paul & Joe! Nail polishes from the newest collections! I couldn’t even fit everything into the frame. 😀 I’ll start off with the craziest (aka the best!) things:
I had anticipated April would have been a crazy month of haulage due to the Sephora VIB sale but that didn’t turn out to be the case. I had $252.74 in my April budget to start off with.
In the Sephora sale, I bought only 4 items, and I ended up returning one of them:
My original total was $83.30 but after returning the busted BITE Beauty Agave Lip Mask, I only ended up spending only $52.70 at the VIB sale.
I received a notification that there was a parcel waiting for me and I just knew it was the prize from MyStyleInsideOut‘s giveaway!
I was only expecting the BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Eyeshadow and Highlighter Palette as per her giveaway post, but she included extras! 😀 And she wrote a sweet message in that butterfly notecard! ❤
