Today’s post is on my September low-buy. To be honest, this month I wasn’t that into buying makeup. I’ve been on an art kick in the last two months (mainly due to the wedding) and found that lately I’ve been more interested in buying watercolour palettes than eye shadow palettes, haha. I couldn’t really decide what I wanted to buy in terms of makeup this month, and what I did want to buy was over my budget. Most of the items I picked up this month were “necessities”, although I did get one fun product!
Nail Polish Remover – $4.99
I don’t really have a go-to nail polish remover as I find that most brands will get the job done. My nail polish remover at home was at dire levels, so I just grabbed the least expensive remover I saw on the shelves while I was at Walmart, and it happened to be the one. I think Equate is Walmart’s own brand for OTC pharmaceutical and beauty products.
CoverGirl Lashblast Volume – $6.99
I bought this to replace the CoverGirl Clump Crusher, which still has probably about a month’s worth of usage left. I was going to buy this in October, but happened to see it on sale for $6.99, so it was a good opportunity to pick it up. I was careful NOT to pick up the waterproof version of the mascara this time. I’m super excited to use this as volumizing mascaras are my favourite.
Essie Nail Polish in Plumberry – $7.99
This caught my eye while I was browsing the nail polish section at Shoppers last week. Apparently it’s really hard to photograph this shade, because I looked up swatches online and they all turned out red, and now my photo of this polish is also red. It’s actually a fuschia-toned berry red in a crème finish. I wanted something that was autumn-esque, but still bright, and this was perfect.
For my September low-buy budget, I only included the Essie polish since the Lashblast Volume was to replace my current mascara, and the nail polish remover technically isn’t a makeup product.
Still staying in the black! I think in the next few months, you may see some more interesting low-buy posts from me. I’ve been really uninspired lately by all of the nail polish I own, so I think I might do an overhaul of my nail polish collection over the next few months, which would include purging old ones and buying new ones. Also, I want to look into getting some better brushes! So any nail polish/brush recommendations would be greatly appreciated 🙂
