Beauty Spend Report | February and March 2022

I’m back with a combined beauty spend report as I had a low spend month in February! If only they could all be like that!

In February, along with a £20 subscription to the Liberty Beauty Drop Box, I repurchased two products. The first of which being a Real Techniques Setting Brush. I honestly can’t remember how long I had my original brush – it featured on my blog for the first time in 2015 and would have lasted many more years if I hadn’t lost it So mad at myself but I think I must have left it in a hotel room because I turned my bedroom upside down and couldn’t find it. I use it daily so picked the replacement up from Amazon as that’s where I found it for the cheapest price at £6.07 (RRP £7.99). The new version has a pink base rather than black and I would say it feels very slightly different though that could be because mine was so old! Anyway, it’s the best size for setting under the eye and eyelid too and I can’t recommend it enough!


I also just finished my favourite eye makeup remover so grabbed another Nivea Daily Essentials Double Effect Eye Makeup Remover for £1.99 from Savers. If you wear waterproof mascara you need this in your life! It’s a bio phase formula and the oil works to break down makeup all while being super gentle, not stinging eyes or leaving a fuzzy film over them! See more here! My total for February was £28.06.


Moving onto March now and as well as another £20 billing for the Liberty beauty box subscription, I picked up three Revlon Colorstay Foundations for Oily/Combo skin in the shade Buff as it was on 3 for 2 in Boots. Normally this is £12.99 per bottle so instead of £38.97 altogether it was £25.98 and because I had some vouchers from Christmas I only paid £3.37. Side note, when are Boots going to introduce being able to use gift cards online? So annoying. Anyway, this is my go-to work foundation as I don’t like wearing my more expensive foundations when I am just working from home! I have been repurchasing for years and it’s a great, long lasting, full coverage foundation and Buff is a perfect match for me! I don’t wear much drugstore makeup anymore, but this is one I always have in my collection! See more here!


Another trip to Savers for essentials resulted in me picking up some more dry shampoo – the Schwarzkopf dry shampoos feature heavily in my empties but I think I forget to add them into my spend reports as to me they are quite boring but £1.99 can’t be beaten! I also had a lovely trip to Prague in the middle of the month and took the opportunity to grab the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Waterproof mascara which worked out at £3.10.


Moving onto a few more exciting end of the month purchases and I finally picked up the Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out Freestyle cream blush in Petal Poppin that I have wanted for ages! It’s usually £21 but Boots had 15% off and then a further 5% off for Mother’s Day making this £16.96. Lastly, I made a Look Fantastic order for a backup of the Barry M lip scrub which is just as good as my old favourite from Lush! Unfortunately, they didn’t have the mint flavour I wanted so I picked up bubblegum – it’s usually £4.99 but there’s always a 20% off code! I also grabbed the Maison Margiela Replica Memory Box 10 x 2ml as I have wanted to smell these for ages and this was £33 but I got 20% off too and also had a £5 credit on my account so this haul cost me £25.01 altogether instead of £37.99.

My total for March was £70.43 instead of £122.39 thanks to those discounts and gift cards and the total for the two months was £98.49. I think I am due another beauty box from Liberty in the middle of this month after which I might cancel the subscription. I have £80 in the account now but have to say I don’t find their beauty section that good so I’m not sure what I will pick up yet!

  1. You got a lot of nice things! it's good you were able to stock up on your favourite foundation in the sale too and use your gift card :)

    Hope you're having a good weekend. It's a nice relaxing one here.

    1. Thank you Mica! Hope you had a nice break over Easter! xx

  2. You got so many great things! I love that foundation, it's incredible for the price. Buying three during the 3 for 2 is such a good idea to save some money. I always look at getting different things, but getting the same is such a good idea. Also only having to pay £3.37 is so good. I had no idea you couldn't use gift cards online though xx

    1. It's so annoying! My local Boots is tiny so they don't have any fancy brands and thats what I usually want to spend gift cards on! xx

  3. You know whats so annoying, that you can't also part pay in Boots, I feel like Boots need to enter the 21st century with some of their payment methods! That Revlon deal is an absolute STEAL though! I really want to try some fenty blushers but I am on a spending ban for makeup unless I've actually run out of it! xx

    1. They really do don't they! I wish I didn't keep breaking my ban haha xx

  4. You know I have not tried anything from Fenty Beauty yet and I SOOOO want to. And had not heard of Replica thanks for the introduction!
