This past month I have tried to put a ban on spending, but I bought things that I couldn't miss out on, plus I had to stock up on a few items that I use everyday - so that doesn't count. I have to say I am quite pleased with myself since I have not been crazy spending especially the crazy after Christmas sales.

Restocking, I picked up the Superdrug's Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser, I have been using the Vitamin E version, but I much prefer this one, it smells nicer and does help my skin become more radiant. Next up, my trusty Maybelliner Eraser Eye, I though I had back-ups in my draw and did a panic when I needed more and rushed out to buy this.

Next up is my monthly Birchbox subscription, I've just finished my KMS California shampoo and conditioner so I will be moving on to the Parlor Moisturising Shampoo and Conditoner next. I have a full post of what I received in my Birchbox this month here. One of the most exciting products for most people is the Benefit's Tinted Lash Primer, which I have a full review available here.

I received my first Cohorted subscription box , which was beyond exciting, there are more brands to try out and more amazing products. I am eager to try out the Too Faced Soulmates Bronzer and Blusher Duo in Carrie & Big. To see the full post with more brands such as Cargo and Lancome read my full post here.

Being Asian I'm always on the lookout for the Cushion Compact Systems in the UK,  I have tried two before : Etude House and Loreal Paris, both which I bought when I went to Hong Kong last summer. I have done a review of the Loreal Paris BB Cushion here. The Cushion Compact is the reason why I ordered a few items on Kiko, it did take a while to arrive. I picked up a few Stick Eyeshadows and Lip Pencils to add to my Kiko collection. The full post is available here.

Lastly I have been trying to get a hold of the last piece of what I want from the Ciate x Olivia Palermo collection. So far I have a few lipsticks and a blusher and bronzer duo. I've heard really good things about the collection and I really cannot wait until I get my hand on on of the eyeshadow palette. 

What have you been buying the last month? Until next time!
