Yearlong Beauty Low Buy | Mid-Year Check-In (Update #6)

For the past six months, I've been documenting my attempt to reign in my spending and to stop my beauty collection from rapid expansion. Sadly, I have not been successful with my attempts to follow a strict monthly low buy.

Massive Luxury Beauty Haul – Part III

Spoiler alert: I am embarking on a total Beauty No Buy in an effort to curb my hyper consumerist tendencies. I need to stop relying on buying this to ease my sadness, stress, or anxiety. More details on my No Buy will be shared in an upcoming post. Knowing that I was about to start a No Buy, I "panic" purchased a ton of beauty products during the month of September. While I shared most of what I purchased in last month's Low Buy Haul update, not all the items I ordered arrived.

Bad or Rad | Natasha Denona Sunrise Palette Review

Natasha Denona is an unofficial member of BEAUTY'SΒ BIG THREE, a term I affectionally coined for Pat McGrath Labs, Natasha Denona, and Viseart. Each of these brands creates expensive, highly coveted eyeshadow formulas that not only set trends, but are loved by hardcore fans, but abhorred by consumers who didn't feel their products were worth the price tag. Admittedly, I've remained skeptical of Natasha Denona's eyeshadows after having a bad experience with one of the brand's mini 5-pan palettes. However, I wanted to give the brand another chance.
