Project Update: Month 4

4 Oct

Hello everyone! Here is the update for September I think I did pretty well considering that it was my birthday month and I tend to go crazy with purchasing myself makeup. Here is the damage this month:

IMG_1615 IMG_1616


So only three products which is awesome!!! I have been enjoying my makeup collection and have been really happy with my new purchases. So I purchased the Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick in 476 Plaza which is a really great moisturizing shiny fuchsia shade; Dior Bonne Etoile Eye Shadow Quint my first Dior eye palette and I am really happy with this because I don’t have any shade in my eyeshadow collection that comes close to how beautiful these shades are; and the last is Makeup Forever’s Lip line perfector because I don’t have any lipliners needed one for the wedding this month. I have been enjoying these products the past month and am really glad that they are in my collection.

Face masks… I have developed a love-hate relationship with the sheet masks… sometimes they are lovely but sometimes they aren’t but I have been trying to whittle down my collection and hopefully by the time December rolls around I will be proud to say that I am sheet-mask free!

I wanted to try something different for this month because I had an enlightening talk with my little sister about the amount of makeup that I have. You see I have more makeup coming in than coming out therefore my stash is increasing every month instead of decreasing the amount of products. Therefore this month I wanted to try to purchase only three product and save my money for Black Friday/Cyber Monday and Sephora Friends & Family sale in November. We will see what happens so that will be all in next months’ update. In the meantime, I will focus on using my makeup and reviewing all the products that are not limited edition in my collection.

So I hope that you enjoyed this update I feel like the year is just flying by with so many things happening at once and all other aspects as well. I hope that by the time this project is done in December I am a little wiser in the purchasing department and will be able to figure out what I would like to do Resolution wise in January.

Canada Sephora Friends & Family Sale Haul

9 Nov

Hello everyone!

I have a haul post today. Yesterday was the beginning of the Sephora Friends & Family sale and for those who live in Canada you needed to print out the e-mail and take it into the store in order to get a discount. Click Here to get to the page to print out the coupon. Now the only catch is that you have to be a VIB member in order to get the discount but the positive thing is that you can also extend your discount to a friend (hi mom!).

I went a bit overboard this time around but I have been saving up for this sale so this is just me justifing the amount that I spent.

So the products are as follows: Ciate’s Mini Mani Month ($64CDN), Josie Maran Argan Oil ($58CDN), Clinique All About Eyes Rich ($37CDN), Tarte Fantastic Foursome Blush Set ($46CDN), Ojon Rare Blend Total Hair Therapy Oil ($42CDN), Caudalie Our Favourites Kit ($35CDN), Origins Skin Brightening Superstars Kit ($49CDN), Bare Minerals Purely Moisturizer ($35CDN), and not pictured is a Tarina Tarantino Eye Dream Hyperliner in Tommy Jet ($11CDN). Grand total of $316.68 with tax (if I lived in a different province I would pay more due to taxes thankfully I live in Alberta).

Yes, this was a lot just for myself but I use this time to stock up on my skincare items (are you surprised there wasn’t anymore makeup products? I was surprised too!) and try new skincare since skincare is pretty pricey to begin with.

I am going back to Sephora again this Saturday with my mom to get her stuff (and for me hopefully not spend too much again).

If you guys picked anything up from the Sephora Friends & Family Sale let me know in the comments below. Happy hauling!

More Goodies

23 Dec

Hello everyone! More goodies today. I went to Lush yesterday and thought that I would show you what I got from there. I used to be a LUSH junkie but stopped because it got a bit expensive… kinda how my obsession with Bath & Body Works is waning right now… Anyways, I also go my order from Geek Chic Cosmetics in and reviews+swatches will be coming in the next few days.

From Geek Chic Cosmetics:

Eyeshadows from left to right are Don’t Blink (Timey Wimey/Doctor Who), Newb (Single Player), Ambassador (Big Damn Heroes/Firefly that didn’t happen).

And Lush goodies!

This includes an Each Peach massage bar, Mask of Magniminty, Angel’s Delight soap, 9 to 5 cleanser, small Tea Tree toner, and some toner tabs (which include Dream Steam, Token to the Gods x4, Vitamin C, Tea Tree x2, and Moon&Sun).

I can’t wait to start using these products and testing them out.

Recent Additions

19 Dec

Hello everyone! I’ve been shopping quite a bit lately due to the holiday season and now that I’m officially done school (for now) I want to show you guys what has accumulated lately.

So from MAC’s Glitter and Ice collection I picked up Snow Season mineralized eyeshadow and Snowglobe beauty powder.

At Walmart I needed more foot cream so I picked up the usual Freeman’s Bare Foot Cream, and some other items that came home with me was a Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake, Wet ‘n Wild nail polish in Jezebel and Sagreena the Teenage Witch, and a few more Maybelline Color Tattoos in Too Cool (white), Bold Gold, Bad to the Bronze, and Pomegrante Punk (swatches will come tomorrow hopefully).

Various places  are from online stores and Sephora. The Naked palette came from Sephora and the others came from beautycarousel.com which includes Steam Cream, Naruko serums and extra Hello Kitty face masks.

From ELF or eyeslipsface.com this was ordered while they were having their Cyber Monday sale so everything was 50% off. I picked up some brushes, lipgloss sets to give away as presents and two blushes (Merry Berry, and Blushing Rose) and a translucent powder.

Animethon Haul & #6

8 Aug

Hello everyone! A haul post from Animethon 18 this year. Hehe I’ve completed basically two points on my 20 things before 20 list. Hooray for killing two birds with one stone.

Books were on sale buy 4 for $25 so I got 8 books total of $50 but each book is about $15 so I saved around $70.

Mashimaro was $10 and the mushrooms all together costed $50. Lots of money spent but now I have a mushroom farm!! MUSHROOM FARM!!! My sister is so jealous she wants some now. ^-^ Shrooms can do that to people so I’m going to get some more mushrooms hopefully I will have about 6 by the time this year is up.
