Another Ulta Haul!8:03 PM
Being an Ulta rewards member has some amazing perks. For example, they periodically send their Platinum Members 20% off coupons that can even be used on prestige cosmetics. Hence this haul.
I've told myself time and time again that I wasn't going to get anything from Too Faced's Christmas in Paris Collection. Yet I have the Le Grand Chateau palette, Le Petit Tresor lipstick set, Melted Kisses and Sweet Cheeks set, and now the Le Maison palette. I just couldn't resist. As long as you don't get the Le Grand Palais, you're good. The quality of everything else is great.
The Japonesque Pixelated Color Eyeshadow has caught my eye for a long time. It looks unsuspecting in the pan, but it is a beauty. Don't dismiss it based on the bland appearance.
I also got the Ulta Artistry kit, which has three eyeshadow palettes that look IDENTICAL to Hourglass' eyeshadow palettes. Ulta didn't even try to make their version look different, besides the outer packaging. It has bad reviews on Ulta's site. I used one of them today, and I honestly didn't see anything wrong with it. You can tell it is not a high end shadow, but I have tried way worse. But more on that later.
I repurchased the Catrice Illuminating Highlighter Pen, which is fantastic. I love that it is a pinky silver highlight vs a beige or gold toned one. Plus the click style pen is easy to use and it blends well. It is also budget friendly.
I also ended up buying the Catrice All Round Concealer Palette. I mostly bought it because I wanted to try out the salmon shade, and people really seem to like it.
The O.P.I Starlight Collection is the first nail polish collection that has caught my eye in a long time. Particularly the shades Give Me Space and Cosmo With a Twist. Give Me Space is a stunning shimmering midnight blue.
Up next are some products from Shea Moisture. I was at Wal-Mart a couple of weeks ago and a lady told me about their African Black Soap Bar. I bought it and I noticed that it really helped with my hand eczema and soothed my skin. I told my mom about it since she has psoriasis (the soap is also supposed to be good for it), and she wanted some, too. Well, turns out the Shea Moisture line is cheaper at Ulta, if you can imagine that. I ended up getting her the soap, shower gel, and lotion.
My mom loves loofahs, socks, and the color pink. Need I say more about these two Hello Kitty products?
The last two things I picked out are Almay's Wake Up Makeup, which was on clearance, and Urban Decay's Corrupt eyeliner.
Now I am gearing up for the VIB sale later this week, which is always an exciting time. I am planning on doing a wish list post so you can see what I have my eyes on.
See you soon!
