So it’s been a while since I’ve shown you one of my low-buy hauls. I lost some of my determination a few months ago regarding my low buy but recently picked it up again. Here’s what I have bought for August!
My low buy started out great. I wasn’t spending a lot of money and I had what I needed. However, things started going downhill in May. I wasn’t following my low buy anymore and money was flying through the windows. I started to realise that I had to be determined again and follow the low buy. Reason being that my boyfriend and I will be living together next September in what we call a student dorm apartment. Otherwise known as a ‘Kot’ in Dutch. And that is quite expensive on its own. In June, I decided to commit to a No Buy July and it actually worked! I didn’t spend a single penny or cent on makeup or skincare. Honestly, it really felt amazing. So amazing that it lasted until the 12th of June. I was planning on buying a few things as soon as August began. But I never did. I’m actually really proud of not being too impulsive. However certain things had grown on my wishlist and on the 13th of August I placed an order on Beauty Bay. I’m also going to show you two palettes that I ordered from Colourpop & Juvia’s Place in June with the group on Facebook. That stuff usually takes a month to get here. But nothing from July!
Little June Haul
Colourpop Uh-huh-Honey palette $12 -€13,40
This palette is so lovely. I really love yellow eyeshadow and I was really excited when Colourpop released this palette. I’m really ecstatic about the variations of yellow with the mustards tones, the bright yellows and the lovely shimmers. I don’t think this palette will have shades to create a lot of depth but I do think it will be a nice complementary palette.
Juvia’s Place Afrique Palette $12 – €13,40
This palette is normally $20 but I bought it during a -40% sale. It ended up being €13,40. A bargain, a steal, a meal. I was really drawn to this palette because of the pastel yellow, the royal blue and the dark green. The overall colour scheme is interesting and I can’t wait to use this palette. I’m going to review the Douce palette first though. I still have that one lying around in my vanity haha.
bPerfect Stacy Mary Carnival XL Pro Palette €46,95
bPerfect has been a brand that has interested me ever since they released their Stacy Mary Carnival palette. Everyone and their mother has been using that palette. I was about to purchase it when I saw that they were going to release the Carnival XL Pro palette. I felt like this palette was a better purchase to make because of what you get compared to the original Carnival palette. You get 40 shades and 3 highlighters for €46,95 whilst the original has 24 shadows and two highlighters for €45. So Carnival XL Pro is the way to go and I can’t wait to try it!
Face Halo The Modern Makeup Remover €20,25
Honestly, I have seen a lot of people use these makeup removers and I was so intrigued. I have been trying to be more environmentally conscious and I’m really tired of cotton pads. It’s a single-use product and just very wasteful. I was always hesitating if I wanted to purchase this because it has quite a hefty price tag. But the fact that you can re-use these and they are more environmentally sustainable won me over. So, I took the shot and bought it. I can’t wait to try this man!
BH Cosmetics Poolside Chich Brush Set €25
I have never tried BH Cosmetics brushes before and everyone raves about them. I really was in need of some brushes and I decided to buy this particular set. The face brushes look so soft and fluffy. The eye brushes also look fluffy and not too detailed. I really wanted some more blending brushes. I think I will really enjoy this set!
Makeup Revolution Precise Brow Pencil €3,00
I really needed a new brow pencil because I have run out of my Revolution Pro one and my ABH Dipbrow Gel has dried out already. I normally go for the NYX Micro Brow Pencil but I decided to go for this one from Makeup Revolution. One because it is cheaper and secondly because I wanted to try it out. I’ll let you know what I think!
That’s it for this month’s low buy haul. And a little bit of a June Haul haha. I’m really excited to try all of these products. And I’m really happy that I saved €12 on my low buy due to my Tribe points on Beauty Bay! The Colourpop palette looks so yellow and mellow. The bPerfect palette really inspires my creative brain. And I love the look of Afrique by Juvia’s Place. I’m really interested to see what I think of the Face Halo and the BH brushes! What did you buy this month? Are you also participating in a Low Buy or No Buy?
Lots of love and see you next time!
