Week 1 
Catrice Glam & Doll False Lashes Mascara Waterproof €3.99
Catrice Glam & Doll Volumizing Mascara Primer €3.99
Catrice Prime and Fine Pore Refining And Anti-Shine Base €4.59
Eyelure Enchanted Rose False Lashes €5.00

Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil 615 Slate €6.20
Lush Catastrophe Cosmetic Face Mask €11.50
The Body Shop Vitamin C Microdermabrasion €20.00

Total: €34.07
(-€5.00 because my mum had a discount voucher of €5.00 for the store where I bought the Eyelure lashes)
(-€5.10 because I had a 50% discount on the Nyx Nude Matte Shadows)
(-€4.30 because I had a 70% discount on the Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil)
(-€17.00 because I had an 85% discount on the Vitamin C Microdermabrasion)

I went sales shopping in Antwerp with my mum and therefore I bought a lot of products, luckily some of them were in discount. I repurchased the Catrice Glam & Doll False Lashes Mascara Waterproof because it’s my all-time favourite mascara. I wanted to try out the Mascara Primer as well, but I haven’t yet because I had exams in January and I wasn’t really focused on trying new products. I haven’t tried the Catrice primer and the Eyelure lashes either, but I did try the Nyx Nude Matte Shadows, the Lush face mask and The Body Shop Microdermabrasion. I haven’t tried the Nyx Jumbo Ete Pencil either, but I already own another pencil so I know that it’s a good product. Just like the Nyx Nude Matte Shadows, I already own a few of these so I know that they are amazing. I also tried The Body Shop Vitamin C Microdermabrasion on a daily basis, even if I didn’t leave my house, but I didn’t really notice a difference. And the last product for this week: the Lush face mask: I really liked this product and I have written a review, so make sure to check that out!

Week 2 
Catrice Cosmic Body Sparkle Fluid €6.99
Catrice Dazzliner C01 Iridescent Eyes €3.49
Catrice Galactic Highlighter Drops 010 Spaceshuttle €4.99
Catrice Rock Couture Liquid Liner 040 These White Stripes €3.89

Total: €19.36

My mum went to Kruidvat and she saw that Catrice had 2 new limited collections so she immediately called me. I went for the Cosmic Body Sparkle Fluid and the Dazzliner from the Dazzle Bomb collection and the Galactic Highlighter Drops and the Rock Couture Liquid Liner from the It Pieces Holo Graphic collection. I really love eyeliners so this was definitely something for me! I haven’t tried both of these liners, but it seems like they are both a dupe for the Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner. The Cosmic Body Sparkle Fluid seems like a beautiful glitter to give your highlighter something extra or just for over the entire body. And the Galactic Highlighter Drops are so beautiful as well!

Week 3 
Essence Glamour Lashes (from the Bring On the Lashes collection) €2.99

Total: €2.99

I wanted to try out another pair of Essence lashes because I was sure that their lashes weren’t as bad as the one from the winter collection. I tried out the lashes from the winter collection and they were horrible. I couldn’t bend them, they didn’t want to stick on my eyes properly even though I used the lash glue that I always use. 

Week 4 
Girls With Attitude Mythical lashes in Arielle €3.50
Nyx HD Photogenetic Concealer Wand in 00 Alabaster €7.20

Total: €10.70
When I visit the Primark, I always look for Girls With Attitude lashes because they are definitely one of my favourites alongside Ardell. The Mythical lashes are new in Primark because I’ve never seen them before and the style Arielle was the only style available at Primark. I do notice that the band isn’t invisible like the Fantasy lashes, but hey, who knows maybe they are as good as the Fantasy lashes! I also ran out of my concealer so I went to Nyx to repurchase my favourite concealer ever!
I spent a total of €67.12 this month and I think it’s okay in comparison to what I’ve bought this month. I haven’t tried everything out yet, but keep an eye out for my February favourites because perhaps some of these products will be in there. I did write a review for the Lush face mask (that I forgot to put with the rest of the products in picture one, oops!) that will be up in the middle of February, so keep an eye out for that! 


  1. Those Rose lashes! Aahhhh I need them! They look so beautiful. Have you tried them yet?
