Beauty Spend Report | May 2022

beauty spend report daniellesbeautyblog

It’s been a bad month of spending and I feel like my self control has completely abandoned me at this point unfortunately. Working from home combined with it being super quiet at the minute means more scrolling time for me and coupled with some good offers I couldn’t pass up, we have another haul!

Starting with my mini Essence haul as I was in Dublin at the start of the month. I didn’t have much luck with the Lash Princess waterproof mascara I got in March unfortunately as it smudges under my eyes but their products are so affordable I wanted to try the Bye Bye Panda Eyes Smudgeproof Mascara which so far seems to be holding up much better! I also grabbed their Brighten Up Banana Powder which I am really enjoying – it’s not cakey at all under my eyes! These were €4.40 and €3.75 respectively so around £6.99 according to my currency converter!

I then made a little Pat McGrath order for another one of the Skin Fetish: Divine Blushes this time in the shade Nymphette. I previously got Divine Rose last year which is a demi-matte shade and I absolutely love it so wanted to try the satin formula. These are usually £30 but it was on sale for £23.

Cult Beauty got me with a £5 account credit that was expiring and since I had been planning to buy the NARS Light Reflecting Foundation which is normally £37.50 I took it as a sign… They also had an offer on for a free makeup bag (£15) when you spend £45 on makeup so I also grabbed the Vieve Eye Wand in Sand (£21) despite not using the Camel shade I got last year as it’s too dark for me for every day. Unfortunately, Sand is not the neutral sandy shade I was hoping for based off swatches but again a rather warm colour just not as dark as camel so again, I’m not sure how much use I will get out of it. I went hunting for a discount code and thankfully found one for 15% off so this came to £44.72 instead of £58.50.

Boots were then having a 25% off Fenty Beauty offer so I picked up a replacement Sun Stalk'r Instant Warmth Bronzer in the shade Inda Sun as the pan is huge on my old one and I got it about three years ago now! This is normally £27 but I got it for £20.25. I also got myself the Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Setting Powder in Butter in a separate order as I’d been wanting to try that for a while too and 25% is the most discount, I have seen them do. This is normally £26 and I got it for £19.50.

Then, Colourpop had free shipping and I found a 10% off code so have been meaning to try the brand again as it’s been years since I had anything, so I got the eyeshadow quad in Dare to Bare (£7.40 instead of £8.23), glowing lip in Cockatoo (£5.18 instead of £5.76) and pressed powder blush in Flirt Alert (£7.40 instead of £8.23). £4.45 tax and duties were added on so this came to £24.43 altogether instead of £26.67-ish. See my first Colourpop haul in this blast from the past blog post!

Finally, towards the end of the month ASOS had 20% off and while ordering a few pairs of slides (which I sent back) I needed to spend £35 to get free delivery (I swear that’s gone up from £25 recently?) and instead of just ordering a t shirt or something I could return easily, I spied the & Other Stories Miami Muse gift set. I had tried the hand cream in the Dublin store at the start of the month and really loved the scent but didn’t buy it so just treated myself *face palm*. This was £8.80 instead of £11.

So, a pretty good month for gifts to myself and a bad month for saving Overall this month’s beauty expenditure came to £147.69 instead of £186.16. If you want to see last month’s click here! Let me know what beauty products you have been buying recently!
