In the update which showed off most of my fab fit fun items for this month, I was 4 items leaving my collection over what entered. Here’s the thing, this will remain the same after this post. I’ve got another two in and two out post today. Next week my boxyluxe arrives, and it’ll be a bit harder to balance.
Here’s what entered my collection:
The grand total I paid for those above items was $1.37. For the foundation, I used a $10 coupon. And for the green clean, I used my charm room points which I’d been given because I received a faulty product a couple months ago. I’ve already used a green clean from a previous box and I really enjoyed it, so I am not at all upset to have brought it back into my collection.
The catrice HD liquid coverage foundation I’ve worn a few times now and I absolutely love it. Might be a new favorite! This is the second from the lightest shade available and matches me quite well. While I adore the way the mac 24 hour foundation wears on my face, the color is just slightly too dark. It is nice to have something else that I am enjoying that suits my coloring right now. And, I feel pretty certain that as the summer progresses, I’ll continue to get additional color and wear the mac foundation as well.
And now the two items that are leaving my collection. I have a sample size of the tarte maracuja oil which I quite enjoyed but it did take me ages to finish. I would not necessarily repurchase mostly because the ordinary makes a perfectly fine inexpensive rose hip oil product that I can use just as well. And then there was a sample of briogeo scalp revival which I love. I’d been saving this shampoo for travel, but I gave up at some point. I think that ended up being a good thing because this little sample really only had about 3 uses in it which probably wouldn’t have worked for me on a trip. I do want this shampoo in my life again, it works very nicely on my scalp, but I am going to try some other alternatives before repurchasing it.
So, I am still at 4 out above what entered my collection since the start of my beauty balance posts. Incoming items this upcoming week will likely screw that up but hopefully I’ll get back on track before the end of the month. That being said, I am not seeing a ton of things that are really close to being used up this month.
