November 2017 - What I Bought This Month!

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 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 in November: 

Sephora Order #1 ~ $52.08. Ahh.. the first of a few Sephora orders this month! This order was made during the first weekend of the VIB Rouge sale so everything here was 20%! I think I was fairly reasonable during the sale - I picked up another Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer because mine is running low. And, I picked up 2 new products - The Brazilian Crush Body Fragrance Mist (because I really loved the smell of the Bum Bum cream), and the House of Lashes lash glue because why not try it on sale - I heard it is amazing! I also picked up the Tarte Birthday gift and 3 samples from Fresh Beauty and Verb! 

Sephora Order #2 ~ $26.88. Weekend #2 of the VIB Rouge sale and my second purchase of the month! Again, was very reasonable I think! I had to pick up this Nails Inc Sparkle Like A Unicorn Beauty Gift Set - see a full review of the set here! I also picked up the Shiseido Facial Cotton because I have heard it talked about so much! My 3 samples are from Boscia, Kate Sommerville and Benefit! 

Craft Fair Handmade Goodies ~ $27.50. I love finding amazing handmade goodies and holiday craft fairs are always a great spot to find new goodies! This Licorice Love soap from The Sunshine Shop smells so good! And the Fruit Loops Soap from Ye Olde Soap Shoppe is beautiful and smells amazing - I'm actually still considering gifting it for a secret santa (as that's what I was going shopping for!) but I love it! And this bag of Mineral Bath Tea from Green Butterfly Co. smells lovely and is gorgeous with flowers in it! 

Sephora Order #3 ~ $32.55. Yes, the Sephora orders from this month haven't stopped yet! I couldn't resist trying this Kat Von D Mother of All set - I'm such a sucker for mini sets of anything! It was only $16! (I actually picked one up for my secret santa, but had to pick one up for myself as well!) Also, a mini ColourPop palette - I die. Again, total sucker for mini everything. And, it was only $15! I think I own a few neutral mini palettes already, but had to add this one to my collection as well. My add-on code was for this huge Holi-night Sample Bag which includes samples from Marc Jacobs, Ole Henriksen, Fresh, Shiseido, Algenist, and Sephora collection. Then my 3 samples were from BareMinerals, Briogeo, and Boscia. 

Sehora Order #4 ~ $51.45. Whoopsie - 4 orders from Sephora this month... my bad! I really wanted to pick up a few of the Black Friday gift sets - again, such a sucker for mini value sets! The Tarte set was such a great deal - $13.00 for a mini blush, lipstick and mascara. Plus, the Bite Beauty duo was $18 for 2 mini multisticks and the Becca set includes the First Light Priming Filter and a Liquid Highlighter in Moonstone, again for $18! I picked up the same Holi-night Sample Bag (there was no other good codes, so I will just pass these on!) and my 3 samples are from Ren, Origins, and Bumble and Bumble. 

So, for November I spent $190.46! The holidays always just have such great value sets so I got suckered in to a few purchases! I'm really happy with everything I picked up this month and have lots to test and review! 


  1. That Colourpop palette! Is it everything you wanted it to be?!?!

    1. It's actually waaay prettier than I want it to be! I haven't actually touched it yet, because I think I will do a Tarte comparison with it, but I love looking at it!
