EauMG’s August 2017 Empties

August 2017 Empties

Let me just say I bought so much while I was in Europe. I can’t even list it all. I stocked up on European sunscreen, German bath/body products, makeup that isn’t available in the US and fancy skincare. I’ve got to stick to a no-buy for the rest of the year now. I just have to.

I bought Juvia’s Place Blush Palette II. I wore it every… Continue reading | 14 Comments

EauMG’s April 2017 Empties

EauMG's April 2017 Empties

April flew on by. I was sick with the flu, lost in projects and just dealing with annoyances left and right. I did have some fun which led to a Low-Buy Relapse (again).

I relapsed in March with my Low-Buy so I made it more of a goal in April. This wasn’t easy. My friend was in town for an EXO concert¹ (and my slightly early birthday celebration). We went to all the k-beauty stores and they were filled with temptations.  I bought a Mamonde
