I know, I know. I just posted about makeup decluttering and here I am, showing stuff I’m adding to my hoard. Never did I once say that I wasn’t shopping anymore! (I was just making room? 😆 ) And, I didn’t go as crazy this year with post-holiday sales.
This is called self control in my books! 😉
I felt like I did less shopping and browsing in March just simply due to being busier… but now listing everything out, I did in fact, do a lot of shopping! 😳
I’ll be listing all of the beauty related items I bought in March, but only actual makeup items will be counted toward my budget. First makeup item I bought in March was the Body Shop Fresh Nude Foundation $25:
I’ve worn this a few times now and it’s quite nice. I’ll do a review after I’ve given it a more thorough test.
This has been a long time coming. I just needed to set some time aside and be in the right mood to be serious about getting rid of some items from my stash. Sometimes I feel a bit attached to items due to nostalgia and I talk myself into keeping stuff I really shouldn’t. I think I did well:
Since I’ve been hauling like a madwoman, it’s only fair to purge some stuff too! Tomorrow I’ll be purging some lip products. Let’s have a closer look at the foundation and concealer purge pile:
Winners, oh how I love thee! For non-Canadians, Winners is the Canadian version of TJMaxx (or TKMaxx in the UK). It’s owned and operated by the same parent company as Marshalls. Winners used to be the only game in town but now we also have Marshalls (I don’t really understand the differentiation between the two?) For Canadians, Winners is probably a bigger deal than TJMaxx is in the US – we don’t really have a lot of options for discount stores… or department stores in general. Lots of people treat Winners like another department store since they stock pretty much everything. Personally, I go to Winners for the beauty products, and sometimes footwear / accessories. Here’s my January Winners / Marshalls haulage:
These were all acquired between Jan 2 and Jan 31st! 😀 I also had a couple of gift cards that I’d been saving so those went to good use!
October’s trash stash features an exciting bunch of MAKEUP products – woohoo! Every month I put my empties in a Sephora tote and this month, it was overflowing:
But I did manage to get a group shot:
Last month I seemed to have finished all my face skincare, but this month I seemed to have finished all my base makeup!
