How Much I Spent On Makeup This Month #2


Because I never bothered to keep track of how much money I spend on makeup per month, I decided to start collecting my receipts and write down all of my spending habits. In my head I'm always spending a 'reasonable amount', but is that actual reality? January was the first month where I confronted myself with every penny I spent and I actually was pretty pleased with my total! Today I am a little more nervous, February is a time where a lot of makeup brands launch new collections for the Spring/Summer season, did I manage to stay within limit? What is my limit? Let's have a look at how much money I spent on makeup in the month of February!

Let's have a look!

BUDGET TIP: KIKO Universal Fit Foundation


Whenever there's word about a low budget foundation I haven't tried I'm always all ears. KIKO Milano is a brand I have not purchased from in a while as I've seen some changes and increase in prices, so overtime I started focussing on more budget friendly options such as Essence and Catrice products. The KIKO Universal Fit Hydrating Foundation however retails for only €5.95, the packaging is simple but sleek and the name is very appealing. I couldn't wait to give it a go. Here are my thoughts!

Essence Lash Princess Mascara Review



If you are looking for a great low budget mascara that makes your lashes look amazing and that actually holds up all day, Essence Cosmetics is the makeup brand to be. They have many mascaras that are capable of absolute lash transformations, but the Lash Princess formula must be the best one out of all. I was very reluctant to purchase these at first as they were very hyped in the beauty community. Right now, many repurchases later, I'm still just as impressed. They have become my go-to favorite mascaras in my every day makeup routine. Let's have a look!
