Lately I’ve been cutting down my spending on makeup. Ever since I moved out I just don’t have as much money for makeup products, which can be disappointing sometimes. But I love where I’m living so I wouldn’t trade it for anything!
Just because I can’t spend as much money on makeup doesn’t mean that I don’t dream about all of the products that I can’t afford. I decided to put together a list of some of the products that I’ve been lusting over lately! There’s been a lot of products that caught my eye but these are a few that I feel like I need as soon as I can save up some money to buy them!
Every other week I try out 5 products and try to use them every single day for a week. This helps to give me a better understanding of exactly how I feel about the products. It sometimes forces me to use products that I rarely reach for or ones that I might have forgotten about.
January has been quite a busy month for me. I worked a lot of earlier shifts so I didn’t have as much time in the morning to apply all the makeup that I usually do. I went to work pretty often with a bare face and I’ve been a lot more comfortable doing that. But I had a lot of time on the weekends to play with makeup and have some fun with it. I spent a lot of time blogging this month so a few of my favourites were products that I was testing out for blog posts. View Post
Ipsy is one of my all time favourite subscription services. I’ve been subscribed to Ipsy long before I even had an idea of how to use a majority of the products that I received. It’s an inexpensive way to try out a bunch of different beauty products on a regular basis. Each month, subscribers receive a Glam Bag with 5 deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. The service costs $10 USD, shipping is free within the US and an additional $4.95 USD to ship to Canada.
Recently Sephora released a few new Favorites lip sets. Those are always my go to and I think I’ve purchased every single one over the last couple of years. They are usually such good value and a great way to try out new products or different colours. One of the newest sets is the Give Me Some New Lips set. It includes a bunch of newly released lipstick products. Because they are all new I knew there wouldn’t be any way that I already owned any of the products which is super exciting. Before purchasing this I was a little unsure of all the colours but I knew that I wanted to try all of the formulas.
