April Beauty Balance

It’s wedding week, my parents are in town, a large number of the family arrive today, and I’ve got a chore to do. But I am just going to take a moment to procrastinate by posting my latest April beauty balance. Last post I was one item leaving above what entered my collection this month.

I knew I had a couple things arriving so I worked hard to get a few things finished up as well. Here’s what entered my collection:


One thing my collection has been missing is a proper facial sunscreen for days I am not wearing It cosmetics cc cream. I also knew I was close to finishing my belief eye bomb, so I needed another eye cream. I decided I’d give a clinique one a try this time around. With that purchase came the free gift of a mascara and a lippie, but since I know that clinique’s lippies don’t work for me, I immediately gave the lippie to my mom. So, that’s 3 items in, leaving me 2 items in above what left.

Now to balance:


That pur palette just arrived in my boxycharm but I really do not like it at all. Miss Butterfly commented that she really loves it. So, it is headed to her collection. I also finished two full-size items. A First Aid Beauty night moisturizer and my belief eye bomb. Then some samples. One of a shampoo/conditioner combo from Drybar as well as a conditioning hair mask from briogeo. And then I also finished up a sample size of a peel. That’s 6 items leaving my collection. When balanced, that’s 4 items leaving over what entered my collection this month. I plan to restock a thing or two during sephora’s sale, not sure if those items will hit in April or May, likely May. But other than that, beauty balance should be smooth sailing from here on out.

And with that, I’d better get back to work, right?
