Mini Ulta Haul

I hit Ulta yesterday because they’re having their big 21 day sale, and the item on sale for the 3rd couldn’t be passed up!

If you’re unfamiliar with the sale, each day for 21 days certain items are on sale, usually at a 50% discount. The first thing that caught my eye when I walked in was NOT what I came for, but whatever. It’s Ulta. I grabbed the Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette for 27$-usual price is 54$. How could I have NOT grabbed that? Exactly.

 

I need another palette like I need a hole in my head but whatever.

I got some unexpected Urban Decay freebies with my purchase:

Ive been eyeballing this product for a while:

IMG_3515The I Dew Care Disco Kitten Illumination Diamond Peel Off Mask. It’s a metallic white, smells incredible and has rave reviews. I can’t wait to try it! This was 23$.

Finally, the item I came for.

IMG_3516Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Serum. It’s normally priced at 88$, but was on sale for 44$, plus I had 17.50$ off from my points-so all of this came to 81$, and I saved 88$. I also moved into the Platinum level for money spent there, so win win. Not the biggest haul, but I saved so much money and got some high priced stuff for not so high price. Then we went to Warwick RI for school shopping for my 16 year old and it was a horrific zoo.

Hope everyone’s having a fun and safe holiday weekend!

Talk soon, Lovelies

Coming Soon To A Sephora, Ulta, or Walgreens Near You

This fall is bringing a TON of new brands to various stores, and they are mighty exciting, Lovelies.

First, new at Sephora this fall you will see:

ColourPop
Volution
Tom Ford Beauty
Moon Juice
Antonym

And the highly anticipated makeup line from Rihanna, Fenty Beauty, hits Sephora shelves Sept. 18.

I am THRILLED to see ColourPop in Sephora. Y’all know how I feel about ColourPop.

Ulta will be bringing you:

Frank Body
Dose of Colors

And Memebox, makers of Disco Kitten Diamond Peel-off Mask, which is so sold out, its nearly impossible to get. They have several other must have products, but Disco Kitten is probably the most recognized.

And lastly, the brands you’ll be seeing on Walgreens shelves this fall:

Sleek MakeUP-usually found in the U.K., this affordable and pretty awesome brand has been slowly creeping over to our shores. They have to die for highlighting palettes.

NYX- I thought NYX was at Walgreens but it’s definitely not. But not for long!

There you have it, Lovelies. It’s going to be an amazing fall.

Talk soon, Lovelies

4th of July Ulta Haul

As if I need an excuse to go to Ulta. 4th of July weekend? Let’s go makeup shopping!!

I did damn good-

img_3145

I bought:
Tarte Shape Tape
Urban Decay Shadowbox Palette
Catrice MultiTalent Fixing Spray
NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray
Philosophy Purity Makeup Remover Wipes
NYX Epic Ink Liquid Liner Pen
Benefit Roller Lash (travel size)
LA Girl Pro Concealer

The total came to 131$-but I had a 20% off everything coupon and points worth 17.50$ soooo it came to 72$. So. Worth. It.

I watched one of Tati’s videos this morning on Best Drugstore Under 10$ Buys, and she raved about the Catrice Spray. After all if the discounts it came to 5.08$, so why not?

img_3148
You can use it as Setting Spray, primer, fix plus-so I wanted to give it a try.

I’ve been hearing RAVES about the LA Girl Pro Concealer-

img_3149
And again, after discounts it was 3.16$. I mean, come on.

The NYX Epic Ink Liner-

img_3150
It’s supposedly a dupe for the Kat Von D tattoo liquid eyeliner or whatever it’s called-I wanted an eyeliner pen anyway, so here it is.

The UD Shadowbox palette is one I did a giveaway for a few months back-

img_3146
However-it was on sale for 18$ from 34$.

img_3147
And after the discounts, 11.44$.

I got the philosophy Purity Makeup Wipes because I love the cleanser-I got it in a Sephora Play box and it’s awesome. I thought the Wipes would be good to try.

Hubs went with me, and he’s the best sport. I usually try to hurry because I’m sure being dragged thru Ulta with his wife on a Saturday is one of the circles of hell for him, but he kept telling me to take my time, he carried the shopping bag, asked questions, made suggestions-so patient, AND paid. I know I got lucky AF.

Hope everyone is having a great, safe, cool holiday weekend 🏖🗽🎆🎇

Makeup News-Wonder Woman, Wonka, and More…

Some pretty exciting developments, y’all-
First, Storybook Cosmetics, the company that just released the Harry Potter inspired palette and brushes, has a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory palette coming this summer. They were able to get a licensing agreement for it-the actual Harry Potter eye shadow is getting rave reviews for its quality, so there’s that. Photo of the packaging for the Willie Wonka inspired palette below:

Also, British beauty brand Sleek Cosmetics is finalllllly available at Ulta! I’m so excited. It’s an affordable and popular brand, I’ve heard a lot of good things. Ulta link below:

Finally, Luxie has put out a set of Wonder Woman brushes-I absolutely LOVE them, and would give my left…..foot for a set. But, they’re a pricey 95$. Which isn’t bad for the brand-you get 5 brushes, and a single brush runs you 20-25$, but still. They ARE a great brush brand.

I mean, come on. Those are beautifully badass. Just like Wonder Woman-who incidentally I worshipped when I was like, 6, 7 and 8.

So there you have it!

NYX Angel Veil Primer-Finally

I finally got this dumb primer-it became a mission. Hubs got it for me at Ulta yesterday, he got the right stuff and even used the coupon I gave him. I haven’t used it yet, but can I just talk about what shook me?

img_2832
It is SO SMALL. From what I’d seen in pictures, it looked decent sized-but guys, it’s palm size and only 1.02 ounces. For 15.99$. I get it’s a perfect dupe for the Hourglass Primer so NYX is probably capitalizing on that, and it’s supposed to be bomb Primer. But that’s pricey for NYX. I don’t know-we shall see.

Talk soon Lovelies

On A Mission

I’ve been trying to pick up the NYX Angel Veil Primer-I sent hubs to Target, no dice. I checked CVS and Walmart, no dice. I know it’s at Ulta but I’ve been lazy, guys. No other excuse. He’s got an appointment today right down the street from Ulta-he’s going in, unaccompanied, with a written description, to get my primer and some tarte Shape Tape. That’s a keeper, guys. I haven’t met many men that would go into Ulta without their wives/girlfriends and buy makeup. Not because it’s not masculine or because it’s homophobic (truth be told there are probs a few that would see it that way) but because they’ve got zero interest, have no desire to ask where anything is or wander the aisles and see it as the 8th ring of hell.

I’m definitely keeping him around.

Talk soon Lovelies
