I think that’s going to be my new word for “hauls” from now on. “Sinnage” feels much more appropriate! I have been keeping tabs on myself regarding my beauty product spending since May and it has been quite the eye opener. I’m almost ashamed to say the actual number, but as of last month I was around the $400 mark which is insane! Even though this includes everything from makeup to soap to shampoo, it doesn’t feel like that much as the weeks go by, but when you add it all up it’s staggering! For the month of September I’ve really really tried to be good, but I know myself well enough to know that I can’t go cold turkey. My goal is to stay around the $200 mark which I have managed to so far. This number also includes my subscription boxes. Most of the items that I have purchased below are from last month with a must have slip-up at the end!
MUA recently had a 25% off sale to celebrate 25000 Facebook likes and then the lovely Nadine from Bunny and Spice alerted me to a free shipping code as well so I figured now was the time to finally get myself the infamous Heaven and Earth Palette! I also picked up the more colourful Glitter Ball Palette and two 3 in 1 Extreme Contour Eye Pens in brown and black. All together, I paid about $12 with the exchange which I thought was VERY reasonable!

These next three items I purchased using my remaining Glymm points as my subscription will be ending in October and I wanted to make the most of those hard-earned Glymm points! It took me FOREVER to decide which Butter Londons to get because I already have so many nail polish colours that it’s hard not to find duplicates. I also picked up the full size version of the Naked Princess lip gloss that I received in last month’s Glymm Bag because I loved its scent, texture and colour. I would never pay $26 for this lip gloss though so I will enjoy my full size while I have it!

Next up is a little Nail Polish Canada sinnage with Essie – Mojito Madness and mini versions of Orly’s Electronica Collection. There was also a promotion for getting a free Soulstice Spa nail polish so I picked Troy which is a glittery black/gold polish.
I found these super cute Ecotools kabuki brushes on sale at Winners! I couldn’t resist the aluminum handles with the adorable nature print on them! This set was $12.99.

I swore to myself that a girl only needs one Naked palette, but then…Urban Decay opened up at my Shoppers Drug Mart this month right around 20x the points time…and that’s when Naked 2 happened! I have been loving this palette though and now that my Urban Decay purchases can get me Shoppers points, I will be definitely be purchasing through Shoppers instead of Sephora!

Is anyone else struggling with their beauty addiction? Really, what I should be doing is not reading beauty blogs anymore, but we know that’s not a possibility ;)
