After reading Laura Capon's article last year about how much money she'd spent on makeup/beauty products in 2017, I was desperate to do something similar. So, in 2018 I set myself the goal to only buy a new makeup product if I needed a replacement - excluding eyeshadows and lipsticks, of course, because I have no self control. I'm just warning you in advance, the amount I've spent is pretty worrying.

Okay, it's embarrassing how expensive my taste in perfume is. I'm actually surprised I only got through three fragrances, but I always have a lot of perfumes on the go at once.
Note: I haven't kept hold of all of my moisturisers/toners etc.
