June 2017 - What I Bought This Month!

Hi all - happy Monday! Sorry there will be no nails post this week - I am keeping the nail treatment on a week longer because I am at the family cabin for the week! (so this week will be a little lighter on posts!)

But now, it's time for my monthly haul!! I have really enjoyed seeing what I buy every month! I like that I get to share everything I have purchased (because really some of it would get lost in my beauty collection if I didn't!) 

Also these posts helps to keep me on track - I am planning on trying to only spend around $100 per month on beauty since I am be on a smaller budget now with a new baby! 

I will only include products I have spent money on - gifts, pr samples, and freebies are usually shared on posts like my Five on Friday posts! 

Here is what I bought this month (spoiler alert, it's WAY over my budget):

ColourPop Order ~ $67.10 ($54.16. + 12.94 import fees). Real whoops, I didn't need to put in another ColourPop order right after I just had an order, but ColourPop released their 3rd birthday add-on shadow (Birthday Cake) and I have resisted a lot of their limited edition releases, but this one looked so pretty! Plus, they had free shipping on orders over $35 to Canada so I thought I would pick up a few items I was really interested in trying! You can see a look at Birthday Cake shadows here, and here is my review of the other goodies in my order! 

Wet 'n Wild Order ~ $75.19 . Okay I had to have this Unicorn Glow summer box! The shipping on Wet 'n Wild's site is expensive - and with the exchange rate, this was more than I wanted to spend since the set was supposed to be $29.99 US. I did review this whole Unicorn Glow set here

Ebay Order ~ $6.69. I actually ordered these masks back on March 3 - lately I have had the worst luck with overseas shipping and they FINALLY came! Good thing most ebay sellers are really good and will send extra or refund the masks. These are the A'Pieu Silk Blanket Mask Silver Cocorico Edition and they are supposed to look glittery on! I will review these soon!

Gold Foil Nail Flakes ~ $3.71. I love the look of gold flakes on the nails! I can't wait to find a look to use these for! Again, I ordered these in March so getting a great deal also means waiting a long time for the products! 

Urban Decay Order ~ $69.30. I HAD to order the Naked Heat palette the second it was pre-released on the Urban Decay website! I love the warm shades - it's gorgeous! I have already swatched it and am very happy - I will review this soon!!

Sephora Order ~ $33.60. I actually had to put in this Sephora order for my husband's birthday present, so I picked up a few goodies for myself! I wanted to try this new Too Cool For School mask, and the Tarte stick foundation was my add on code, the Brazilian Bum Bum Cream was a 100 point item, and the Glamglow set was a 500 point set! 

Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Order ~ $92.94 ($79.92 palette and shipping + $13.02 customs fees). Another palette I HAD to have the minute that it was released on the Morphe website! I have never ordered a Morphe palette and I know they are a controversial brand. But I like Jaclyn Hill and love her or hate her, she is passionate about makeup, so I think this will be good! 

Facebook Auction Win ~ $9.00. I just read amazing things about the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation - it is supposed to be the best foundation for the Summer! Then, right after I saw this in my shade on a facebook auction brand new for only $9! 

Amazon Order ~ $18.88. I have been dying to get my hands on this L'Oreal Lash Paradise mascara - I went to 3 stores near me and it was sold out, so I was buying a few other things off of amazon so I added it to my order! Plus, I needed a new white polish so I picked up my fav Sally Hansen in White On!

Storybook Cosmetics Order ~ $91.09. Okay, I finally gave in and HAD to buy the Storybook Cosmetics Wizardry and Witchcraft palette! They announced that there was only 1/4 left of the palettes and I did NOT want to miss this! I will review this soon! 

Okay, big WHOOPS, while trying to only spend $100 per month, I ended up spending $467.50! So, I'm planning on going on a no-buy for July!!! 


  1. I'm looking forward to seeing your review of the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette. I love the other Naked palettes and use them regularly, but I'm still on the fence about that one.
