Last month I had ordered quite a few items so my totals weren’t fantastic. I think I’ll make up for that a bit this month. Last month I had 42 items leaving my collection over what entered it. This month I’ve had a bunch of empties and a couple declutters.
Going left to right, top to bottom-
3 haircare products in a row, a hairspray, a texturizing powder, and a mousse. Each were fine in their own right and none of which I’ll run right back out and repurchase. I liked the mousse the best out of all of these.
Then we’ve got an elemis face mask which I actually finished last month but forgot to get it into my empties. I would not repurchase.
I finally finished my it cosmetics matte cc cream which I liked quite a bit but have too many other foundations in my collection to repuchase, at least for now. Maybe sometime in the future. Out of all of the cc creams, this one is my favorite for summer use.
A couple declutters-first is a conditioning treatment from living proof that I don’t need but my daughter might like. Then there’s a benefit brow product I am giving her because she lacks a brow product. I like the brow product and I would repurchase but I’ve got other brow products I can use instead.
There’s a little perfume sample I used up pretty quickly as the scent didn’t stick around, so I wouldn’t repurchase.
Bottom row-first my Roc retinol capsules which I DID repurchase, you’ll see those later in this post. Then two belif products, the moisture bomb and the aqua bomb, both of which I absolutely love and would certainly repurchase. I am, however, considering a couple other moisturizers first to see if there are others I could enjoy as much as these.
And finally a colourpop eyeliner that I absolutely hated and would not repurchase.
All of these items brings me to 54 items used up over what has entered my collection this year. I am still managing to reduce my collection overall. But, I did have 3 incoming items, so my total for the month is actually 51. Here’s what I purchased:
These Roc retinol capsules I just adore and I think they have made a lovely difference for my skin. So, I replenished them, and since they are almost always on a buy one get one half off discount, I tend to purchase two at once.
The other item is an elf brow wax product that I wanted to try. I haven’t used it much yet so I don’t really have an opinion on it.
And that’s it, that’s all the purchasing for this month. Next month I’ll have some items from ulta’s current sale but not much makeup, mostly skincare. While there were makeup items I would have really liked to pick up, I decided that I was enjoying my collection as is well enough to give a pass to anything that wasn’t something I was replenishing.
