I recently found out that ULTA was having their 40% off sale on NYX Cosmetics, Revlon, Maybelline and Physicians Formula. Although I am not too fond of Physicians Formula, I am absolutely in love with NYX, Revlon and Maybelline. I, of course, had to run to my nearest ULTA right away in fear of my favorite makeup products being sold out! So here I present to you the products that I purchased!
This is the EOS Honey Suckle Honeydew Clear Lip Balm. It's such a fun lip balm to have in your purse for on the go! It's shaped like an egg so it's not your typical lip balm. I find this thing to be the most adorable lip balm ever made. Best of all, it's organic! The honeydew smell brings back so many memories for me because I used to drink this honeydew slushy all the time. I miss it!
I had previously purchased a nail polish from Revlon before and I fell in love with the quality. You don't have to spend tons of money on OPI or China glaze. Don't get me wrong, they are really great brands. However, I don't find it necessary to spend all that.
This nail polish is "Silver Screen" and it's a pretty silver color with a hint of purple. I love the name! It makes me feel like I'm starring it a movie! hehe
Next up, I purchased this gorgeous magenta polish. I have loved pink ever since I was a little girl. This polish allows me to still wear pink without looking silly! It's called "Oh My Magenta." I am rather excited to sport this polish to an event. I know it's not your typical fall color, but I just couldn't pass it up!
Last nail polish that I purchased is this really flattering nude color. I actually have it on my nails in the picture. I think this color is so elegant and it's flattering on all skin tones. It's also great for work especially if you work at a place with a really strict dress code. "Gray Suede" is slowly becoming my favorite nude nail polish.
|Perfect, Chandelier, Pink Frost|
I definitely could not pass up on NYX cosmetics. So I picked up a few of their lip glosses! I am anxious to see what these colors look like on my lips. I love experimenting with lip glosses and lipsticks. I love the consistency of these glosses. They're perfect to wear alone or over lipstick! The colors I bought are: Pink Frost, Chandelier and Perfect.
ULTA $3.59 each
|Dolly Pink, Rose, Flower|
Being a huge fan of NYX, I could not pass up their lip liners. I went ahead and picked up these pretty pink hues. I rarely ever line my lips because it takes time and I just don't have that luxury in the morning. However, I think I will wake up a little earlier to sport these bad boys!
ULTA $2.15 each
|Electric blue, White pearl|
I saw this pretty electric blue eye pencil and immediately picked it up. The gorgeous blue color won me over. I have always wanted a blue eyeliner because I think it's such a pretty pop of color for the eyes. I bought the white eyeliner because I needed it. NYX eyeliner pencils are very good quality and it was definitely a bargain.
ULTA $2.15 each
|Cottage Cheese, Vanilla Ice|
After picking out my favorites from NYX, my eyes diverted to the Jumbo Pencils. I have several colors from NYX and my absolute favorite is the one in "milk." It has such a milky consistency and it is very easy to blend. I had to buy these two colors; cottage cheese and vanilla ice. What fun names! I can't wait to experiment with them.
ULTA $2.51 each
I have heard plenty of good things about this product from other gurus. I keep forgetting to buy it when I went make-up shopping. When I saw this, I knew I had to get it. It's an eyebrow pencil and it has a smudger and a sharpener built in! I bought the color "brownish black." A wise guru once said, "If your hair is dark go three shades lighter and if your hair is light then go three shades darker." My hair is currently black so I think this will be perfect for my eyebrows. I am rather excited to give this a go. It is called Define-A-Line Eyeliner and it's from Maybelline.
Last, but not least, I picked up some blotting paper from NYX. I have very oily skin so this will be very helpful for touch-ups throughout my day. I used to buy the PONDS blotting sheets and those were roughly $6-7 dollars a pack! I don't think there were even 20 sheets in a pack. This NYX one is definitely a steal!
That was everything I got from ULTA. I had a great time makeup shopping because I haven't done so in a long long time. So, this was definitely a treat! You beauty gals should head to your nearest ULTA or ULTA.com and pick up your beauty favorites before they run out!
Love, Peace & Couture,
