Beauty Spend Report | October and November 2021

october november beauty sepnd report haul 2021

It’s been a while! But after a delayed delivery, I am finally back with a new spending report. After a no buy in September, and almost making it through October too (two little purchases), Black Friday reared its ugly head and I got a little spend happy. November is my birthday month and it’s always bad spending wise for me but I knew it was coming and I have managed a few no buy months this year. A lot of this were items I put off buying myself last year or the year before and while I don’t necessarily “need” it I obviously still wanted it so here we are!

Starting with October purchases, I grabbed the Fenty Beauty Pro Kiss’r Luscious Lip Balm which had 20% off making it £12 instead of £15. Tinted lip balms are really all I am using these days and I absolutely love Fenty makeup so this has slotted in nicely! Also this month, I grabbed the Pat McGrath Skin Fetish: Divine Blush in Divine Rose as I saw they had 30% off around Halloween and it was down to £21 from £30. I also then used a 10% off code so this came to £18.90! It’s been hectic the last while so I still haven’t managed to use this yet, oops!

Moving into November then where most of the damage was done. I couldn’t resist the Space NK Best of Beauty Discovery box especially as it had a full size Olaplex No.3 and Laura Mercier Translucent Loose setting powder which I had been planning on repurchasing anyway. I had also just finished a Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum cream which I love and it’s got a mini Paula’s Choice BHA liquid exfoliant as well as The Ordinary’s Salicylic Acid mask which I have wanted to try for a while! This was £40 with a value of £93.

DECIEM also ran an offer of 23% off all through November (see more in this post!) and I made two orders. The first included the Abnomoly Shop fragrance, Lactic Acid 10% + HA and the Multi Peptide Serum for hair density. This came to £28.96 instead of £37.60. My second order consisted of the elusive Copper Amino Isolate Lipid (CAIL) which I had already missed quite a few times when it came back into stock and the Resveratrol 3% and Ferulic Acid 3% coming to £58.13 instead of £75.50.

A couple of days before my birthday, I got an early access code for the Victoria Beckham Beauty sale for 20% off, and having had my eye on the bronzer duo I decided to hit check out. Seeing there was a delivery charge, I also ended up picking up a lipstick – anyone else refuse to pay for shipping even if it costs you more to get it free lol? This came to £68.80 instead of £86.

ASOS had 25% off in the build-up to black Friday so I ended up getting a brush I’ve had my eye on for a while – the Charlotte Tilbury bronzer and blusher brush which was £22.50 instead of £30.


Escentual also had 25% off and in a case of Instagram made me do it, I picked up the Dior Forever Natural Bronze (I had been eyeing up the Gucci bronzer as well but none of the shades seem quite right!) and the Clarins Makeup Heroes gift set coming to £48.75 instead of £65.


Look Fantastic always has a discount code or two floating around and I decided to purchase these just before Black Friday too as they were going in and out of stock but the Sol de Janeiro Stellar Celebrations and Star Treatment sets caught my eye as I love Bum Bum cream and Brazilian Kiss so much and I’ve been wanting to try their shampoo and conditioner. I also picked up the Living Proof PhD Dry Shampoo (this was a duo set but one is a gift so I have halved its price). In total this came to £62.98 instead of £76.50. In a second order, I also stocked up on more Olaplex No.3 and got the supersize for £35.88 instead of £52.

From Holland and Barrett, I also picked up a new Dr Bronner’s liquid soap as I just finished mine and it’s my preferred brush cleanser – this was £6.60 instead of £8.79.

Cult Beauty also did 25% off for Black Friday and I got blush happy with a couple I had eyed up last year but didn’t get as I chose some others – Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Sex on Fire and Chantecaille Cheek Shade Emotion. This order came to £48.75 instead of £65.


Finally, a brand I have wanted to try for years - Necessaire. They don’t do huge discounts as far as I could see but I did have a 10% off and they were sending a free Body Serum out with orders so I got the Body Essentials in Eucalyptus including the body wash, lotion and exfoliator. This came to $59 instead of $65 (including $5 shipping) so £46.19 not £50.89 ish.

My October total was £30.90 instead of £45 and November was £467.54 instead of £640.28. And that’s me stocked up on hair/body/skin and makeup products for the next year! Like I said, I knew it was going to be an expensive month with purchases I have been putting off until there was a better offer/restocks and just generally treating myself as it was my birthday! I am hoping for a quieter December to end this series and hope to get that up in the next few weeks to round up the year! Did you pick up much in the sales? Have you tried anything I’ve mentioned? Let me know what you think!
