Today’s post is a summary of my purchases in June. I went way over my low-buy budget on my makeup spending in May, so really, I should have made up for it by not spending anything this month. However, seeing that my allowance from June-October is only $10/month, it wouldn’t have made much of a dent in making up for my overspending anyways! With that being said, I really didn’t buy much for myself this month in terms of makeup.
I was putting together an at-home spa package for a friend’s birthday gift earlier in the month, and I saw that The Body Shop had a BOGO sale. I wanted to get her a body butter, but since I wanted to get her a variety of items for her gift and didn’t want to give her two body butters…I kept the other one for myself 😛 Both of body butters I purchased were in the Green Tea scent.
I then went to Victoria’s Secret, as my friend mentioned she loves the Love Spell scent from the brand. I bought her a Body Mist and a Body Lotion in Love Spell. They were having a 3 for $28 or 5 for $36, and the stupid sale got me again. Originally I was only going to get the three because of the deal (and keep one to myself), but the SA there talked me into getting two more because it was “only $8 for two more lotions!” I ended up getting for myself a body lotion in Aqua Kiss, Exotic, and Love Spell (this scent reminds me of high school!) Aqua Kiss is described as the scent of “rain-kissed freesia & daisy”, Exotic is “iris & warm sea salt”, and Love Spell is “cherry blossom & peach”. Although they smell amazing, they’re not the most moisturizing formula, but should be good enough for summer.
The only makeup purchase I bought this month was a mascara. I finished the mascara I was currently using at the beginning of the month, so I went on a search to find one that I’ve never tried before. I saw on Pinterest that the Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam was a drugstore dupe for the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, so I wanted to give it a shot. I’ve normally seen this retail for ~$8.99, but I bought it on sale for $6.99. Review on this product to come in July!
That is all I bought in June – mostly body lotions! Like I don’t already have enough of those squirreled away 😛 I’m definitely going to give some of these away to friends. Anyways, my June low-buy budget was $10.00, and I spent $6.99 (including makeup purchases only). My July low-buy budget is also $10.00, so with the $3.00 from this month rolled over, my total budget for next month is $13.00.
