Love cocoa wood only purchased the rollerbal version because i’m hoping santa will buy me a bottle for my birthday or Xmas will see.Beauty/makeup Purchases: Oh boy! I went over budget with my allotted spending this year.Next year I'm definitely going to create a separate budget for my hair care items. I purchased 2 path McGrath palettes the bronze ambition and the holiday opulence bronze temptation very beautiful, pigmented, great quality, and worth the 10% off both palettes. I purchased 2 Nest perfumes, in black tulip, and Cocoa woods. Cocoa Woods reminds me of my much loved and discontinued Jo Malone fragrance in Blue Aguava and cacao. I picked up a back up of my Clarisonic MIA 2,I made the right decision since the reviews aren't great at all! I purchased the ND cranberry palette was NOT impressed so I returned it, the cranberry palette paled in comparison to The Path Mcgrath palettes I purchased much better quality!! for the price! last but not least, OFRA highlighter in blind the haters, I got 10 bucks off so I picked it up.
Clothing and accessories- t-shirts to wear under my sweaters at 40% off.
Total spent for (Beauty/make-up)this month = $415.00-total spent for the year 1715.00/1400.00
Gave Away /Disposed Of/Used UP:
Gave away: My contour palette from make-up geek, I no longer counter so It didn't make sense keeping it,
and 4 eyeshadows from my custom made cool tone palette, I was gifted a belated birthday gift of Sydney grace eyeshadows so my Sydney grace shadows will replace the ones I'm giving away. I'm impressed by the mattes quality.
Used Up: MAC Lipsticks in high tea, freckle tone, and an old MAC lusture lipstick in laugh-a-lot I planned to use my back to MAC to re-purchase both high tea and freckle tone, but I just found out that both shades have been discontinued. I loved laugh-a-lot, and would re-purchase but it's an LE item, TF indian rose is dupe, but I'm not comfortable spending $55 bucks on a lipstick!! I'll have to visit Mac and find some replacement shades. Clinique melt away balm,Shulwasoo cleanser.
Will Dispose Of: nothing.

I’ve decided to go on a no buy year i really need to stop buying some CRAP lol!!!
I looked at my collection and the only thing i will need to repurchased in 2018- 2019 will be foundations (i have 5 bottles of foundation 2 physicians formula the lightest shade is almost done and the darkest shade is for summer time, 1 Too Faced peach matte almost done and the only one matching me right now, 1 l’oreal infaillable too dark but i have some drops so i will try to used it anyway and 1 Guerlain lingerie de peau that match me but it is so sheer it’s nice to used for work but prefer a more opaque foundation for events and going out)
Also will need repurchased are some liquid eyeliner all my Lancome eyeliner are on their last leg and maybe some concealer.
I think my no buy should start in December wish me luck lol
