February 2018 - What I Bought This Month!

Happy Monthly Shopping Haul time! I hope you guys enjoy seeing my shopping - for me it's a way of sharing everything I pick up; because, honestly I buy so much stuff that some doesn't get talked about at all until it appears in an empties post! But, if there is ever anything you want to see a full post on, just let me know and I will do it!!! 

Also, I do "try" to stick to a monthly budget of $100, and these posts are supposed to keep me in check! (Haha - supposed to, being the key word! I am clearly a beauty addict!) 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! 

For February, I was supposed to be on a "no-buy" or a really low-buy (but, I broke it slightly because I got a new job and thought I deserved a present!)

Here is a look at what I bought in February:

Sephora Shopping ~ $10.50 CAN (would have been $47.25 CAN). I have been wanting to try this foundation for a while - I am on the tail end of a few foundations and then I'm going to try this! I had a gift card that couldn't be used online, so I finally got to use it! Plus, I picked up samples of the Farsali Rose Gold Elixir and the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Skin Booster because I have been loving my Smashbox Primer Oil and wanted to try a few new ones! 

Lush Shopping ~ $0.00 (would have been $21.95 CAN). I love Scrubee and just finished mine so I had to go pick up another right away and I thought I would pick up an extra Cherryish since it was from the Valentine's Day collection and is probably limited edition, plus I had a gift card from my birthday that I wanted to use! 

Just Lash Order ~ $3.95 CAN. I've never ordered anything from this website before; but, I saw in a makeup group that they were offering free lashes - all you had to do was pay $3.95 for shipping. still has this offer up if you are interested; but, they have increased the shipping price to $7.95 - still not bad if you are interested in an $8 pair of lashes! 

I will say that I ordered the F26 pair and they looked much more natural in the picture online than in person; but, the shipping was fast so I will test them out eventually and see how they are. 

Amazon Contour Brush ~ $6.24 CAN. There are some purchases that I have no idea what I was thinking when I purchased them and this is one of them! This is called "Kingfansion Professional Flat Contour Blusher" and I read somewhere that is a good dupe for some contour brush and all of the sudden I was buying it. The problem is I don't really contour so this serves no purpose for me - maybe I will start contouring! (Also, this took about a month and a half to actually arrive). 

Sephora Order ~ $59.85 CAN. Alright, this was my present to myself for getting the job I interviewed for last week! I love my Viseart Petit Pro 1 and when I saw that Viseart came out with a Petit Pro 2 on Friday, I had to get it! It's such a great way to try an expensive; but, high quality brand! Plus, I love these Nails Inc duos (it's 2 full sized polishes for the price of 1!) so I grabbed this new Champagne Shine Nail Polish Duo and I'm very excited to try it! I also grabbed a deluxe size of the Benefit Bad Gal Lash and a few samples from Clinique, Cover FX, and Benefit!

So, in February I spent $80.54 which actually is pretty decent and practically a low-spend compared to some of my past months! If you are interested in seeing what I picked up in my past Monthly Haul posts, you can check them out here


  1. I’m loving these posts! And that’s an impressive amount of products for what you actually spent out of pocket.

    1. Gotta love gift cards - I always save them up so it feels great to actually use them! I love these round up posts too!
