Normally I just would press the ‘order’ button on my favorite website to order new make-up products.
As you might, know I’m now living on a budget after bills for my house are getting bigger that first was planned. I also need to ‘rob’ my Ikea store in a little while.
Ikea, it was shocking to see the total of all the products I need to buy for my house. A new bed, nog stuff for my dressing, bathroom, sofa, diningroom. My list is about 3000 EUR … i mean 3000 EUR at Ikea?? 😮
Buying make-up when you’re on a budget
Today I needed to buy a new setting powder eyeshadow and a pencil sharper. My normal setting powder cost around 45 EUR, so now I’m confused that this 2 setting powders will be good.
I saw the setting powder of Catrice and than the one from Maybelline. Together it was around 20 EUR. Why I bought 2? Well to test ! If one doesn’ work I still can try the other one.
On Saterday I have a party at work and I want to look good all evening/night, and I don’t want my make-up getting to fade after dancing.
A new pencil sharper I bought from Catrice, a pink one like the one I already had. Last weekend I stepped on mine, so it’s broken 😥
I needed a new eyeshadow as my Clinique eye shadow pencils died. I just can’t live without my champagne color on my eyes.
At the store I had found a liquid one like my Clinique one, but I was not convinced to buy it. It was less than 3 EUR, but I didn’t bought it. I bought a new one from Catrice in the shade 020 Rosefeller Center. Perfect little one for everyday.
My eye also spotted the limited edition Catrice Kaviar Gauche eye shadow palette. It’s like a beautiful palette with four colors and it will be perfect for my party make-up for Saterday and the other holidays coming up.
Something for my hair
I also needed something new to do in my hair next Saturday. I found this little cat ears at the store from ‘accessories’. They were 5,95 EUR so for today that still was okay.
I also needed a bottle of Dove deo, and so I got 2 bracelats for free, as a Holiday gift.
For around 40 EUR I had everything today. Normally the cost of that one setting powder I used to buy.
I have some bigger cat ears from H&M, twice as big as the ones above. Those are not the kind of tiara I could were everyday to work.
These are smaller and metal, so I’m thinking of wearing them also at home or at a day at work. As a shoeseller/shoe adivsor for kids this will still be good, I guess?
What do you guys think? Should I wear these cat ears like a everyday tiara or is it not done?
Blogmas 8 coming up…
Tomorrow is December 8, just a normal day. No plans at this moment maybe do some grocery shopping as I have to work on Saterday.
Thanks for reading !
