I got online last week to get ONE thing from the Ulta website. I admit that I got a little carried away, but we all know that it is extremely hard not to! Ulta takes all of my money and to be totally honest, I am ok with that.
We all love and adore great makeup but we also love to save a dollar when we can.. or at least I do. Why not give a cheaper product a try? Don’t get me wrong, I love to try all of the latest trending products. I am the queen of trying the new and the best of makeup products, but for this haul I wanted to get a few things that aren’t talked about or reviewed as much as some of the “higher end” products.
So first let’s talk about the NYX liquid lipsticks. You will see all four colors that I purchased in the picture below.
I can’t even explain in words how much I love these lipsticks. They were $6.99. I know I know, such a steal for a product this amazing. Once they dry, they won’t rub off and they last a few hours. I will be purchasing the rest of the NYX Lingerie collection! Give them a try. You won’t regret it.
NYX lip liners
These were $3.49. They are smooth and creamy. I really, really love them! When I tried to wash the swatches off my arm they wouldn’t budge. I was impressed! The colors are perfect.
Finally, I gave in and bought the Soap & Glory sexy mother pucker extreme lip plump gloss.
My first thoughts after applying to my lips was OH MY, THIS HURTS! It was not as bad as I made it out to be. It stings and tingles a bit. I didn’t see a big difference in my lips! They were maybe a little bit plumper, but nothing dramatic. My lips went numb for a while after they stopped stinging which freaked me out a bit. Overall I think it is a good gloss. I like to apply it over my lipsticks. The price was $14.00.
Ulta+Jenny Fox Miss Fabulous eye shadow palette
When I saw this, the first thing that came to mind was fall glam! These shadows are beautiful. They are super pigmented. $20 for 12 shadows. You can’t beat that!
Ok, while we are on the eye subject.. let’s talk about how glam & gorgeous these lashes below are!
I love that these have a thicker lash band than some others that I have tried. I have a hard time getting lashes on that have thin bands! They also seem last a lot longer with thicker bands. These are seriously beautiful! They were only $7.99. I can’t get enough of them!
NYX micro brow pencil
For only $9.99, this gem easily compares to high end brands. My brows looked perfectly shaped and shaded when I tried this. You must try!
Let’s talk about foundations & concealers!
To the left is the Soap & Glory one heck of a blot foundation priced at $19.00. I am loving this foundation and the price! I have oily skin and large pores. Even with the best of the best primers, I still get oily and my makeup still fades away after a few hours. This foundation stays on ALL day and gives my skin a matte finish! I like to apply it with a damp beauty blender. Next is the ItCosmetics bye bye under eye concealer for $24.00. I legit adore this concealer. It is thick and creamy so at first it seems cakey. I applied it with a damp beauty blender and set it with my Airspun translucent powder. Beside that is the NYX HD photogenic concealer for $4.99. I didn’t love this one as much as the ItCosmetics concealer, but for the price it wasn’t bad at all! I would probably use this on days when I have had lots of rest with no dark circles under my eyes (which is hardly ever). Last it the NYX #nofiler finishing powder. OMG! I can’t deal with how freaking awesome this powder is! It is hands down my most favorite powder now! It makes my skin look and feel flawless. I paid $11.99 for it and it was worth every penny. I am going to order a few more for when I run out!
Ulta Velvet Blush
This blush is simply beautiful. I paid $9.00 for it. I chose the color Princess and I am so glad that I did. It is the perfect shade of blush for fall! I had never tried the Ulta blushes, but I am addicted now!
When I ordered online I got this free 20-piece gift bag below! How cute is that?! I got lots of good stuff. I can’t wait to try it all out and possibly review some of the products for you guys!
