I am a pretty frugal person for two reasons. One, it’s just second nature to me and a fun hobby to seek out ways to save and/or make money. And two, 22 year old Kaily just did not have the same common-effing-sense as 28 year old Kaily when it came to things like budgeting and NOT spending money you don’t have; therefore, 28 year old Kaily doesn’t do much “real world” shopping these days.
But I do get a lot of masochistic pleasure from adding and removing things from my virtual shopping cart! And today I thought it would be fun to share with you what I would buy if 22 year old Kaily hadn’t already spent my money.
I added Bound and the lip primer because two subscribers suggested them, Fetch because it’s a dupe for Buxom’s “Mistress” (according to Temptalia), Juice Bar cause it looks like a pinker/lighter version of Contempo, Trust Me because it’s supposed to be a dupe for Ruby Woo (which is supposed to make your teeth look white, and I’m all about the false illusions there) and then Back Up because no matter how many times I try and throw away purple lipsticks because I don’t like how they look on me I never learn my lesson.
More lip products… yay. I just did a HUGE lipstick declutter on my channel (narrowed my collection down from 40 to 15 lip products), so the last thing I need is more lipstick but that Bite Beauty deluxe sample set is calling my name. For one, ALL of the shades look like something I would wear, and for two it just seems like the perfect way to test out the formula.
The Sephora Lash Favorites is calling my name as well, but then I look at the $45 price tag and I’m pretty sure it’s saying Katie, not Kaily after-all.
At Ulta, dreamland Kaily is under the impression that she is going to spend $24 on the Tarte Shape Tape concealer, meanwhile reality is setting in when I see I can get 5 months worth of NYX concealer for 40% less…
Anddd, now everyone on the internet knows how badly my feet need a pedicure thanks to this screenshot of the last things I put in my Birchbox shopping cart.
What are some of the things you left in your virtual shopping cart!?
