Hey everyone! Who can turn down a good sale? I know I can’t, especially when it comes to beauty products!
Most of what I bought from the sale were gifts…as it is the holiday season, and it is better to give than receive…but I picked up a couple of things for myself that I needed (wanted) too. I also stopped by ULTA recently for some goodies, and I will share those as well.
So Sephora had their VIB Sale a couple of weeks ago, so I had to save 20%! I picked up the Urban Decay Mascara Resurrection, which I did a post on earlier this week – read it here. It’s basically a serum that you apply to your lashes after you’ve had mascara on for awhile, and it softens them for more coats of mascara. It’s really good. Another Urban Decay product I picked up is a backup of my my favorite setting spray – Urban Decay Chill Makeup Setting Spray. This stuff is bomb and keeps your makeup on all day. It feels so cooling and hydrating every time you spray it on.
I also grabbed a Shiseido Eyelash Curler because I needed a new one, and I’ve heard great things about this one. Another thing from Urban Decay that I picked up is this eyeshadow in Lounge, which is a really cool duo chrome color, it is described as brick red with a green shift. It looks amazing. I finally decided to join the party and bought the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. This powder is supposed to be great for setting undereye concealer, so I’m gonna give it a try!
I haven’t really tried THAT much from Clinique, but they seem to be coming out with more things that appeal to me, like this Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlighter. This is a really beautiful cream highlight color that I can use on the tops of my cheekbones, and I love that it’s in stick form. I also grabbed a couple more of the Sephora Collection Colorful Shadow and Liner Pencils in Gold and Violet. These are chubby little pencils that can be used as eyeshadow or liner, and they are super creamy, smooth, and easy to blend. I really like these.
Ok, sooo the last thing I just HAD to get was this 500 point perk which is called Urban Decay Vices – it comes with a little palette and an eyeliner and it just looked too good to pass up!
Ok, onto ULTA!
I needed some new body wash, and I only buy the huge kind with the pump! This time I got the Soap&Glory Sugar Crush Bodywash which I have never tried, but I LOVE Soap&Glory’s products and this one smells exactly like a fresh lime margarita! Can’t wait to try it out. The next thing I got was this Redken Pillow Proof Blowdry Express Primer , and the pink bottle and the promise of lowering drying time are what drew me in! It also smells amazing. I picked up another Essence Lipstick in Natural Beauty, which is a beautiful nude color that I wear a ton. It’s $2.99 and amazing. MY LIPS BUT BETTAH.
You know I can’t go to ULTA without grabbing some nail colors! I found these two hanging out in the clearance bin! They were $4.25 each (half price)! They are both from the Essie Cashmere Matte 2015 Collection and are Coat Couture (a purple taupe with teal shift) and Spun in Luxe (a gorgeous blue black with shimmer). These are matte nail shades which I am into, and perfect colors for fall and winter. Score! Always check out that bin when you go. I also got some eyeliner pencils, Rimmel Scandaleyes pencils in Black and Brown (total dupes for Urban Decay, in my opinion) which I have used before and love. Also, the Loreal Infallible Silkissime liner in Highlight , which looks is a gorgeous pink gold color.
The last thing I got was for my little shopping gal pal, my sweet four year old Allison. She went with me to ULTA by herself and I told her she could pick out anything in the store that she wanted. Of course, she immediately said lipgloss (which I knew she’d say), and so I took her to the Maybelline section to scope out those new Baby Lips Lip Glosses. I knew she would want one, because…the packaging. It looks like little girl makeup! She picked out Fuchsia Flicker because it was the bright pink one (of course). She likes it!
Ok, whew seems like a lot, but it was more than one trip!
If you want an in-depth review of anything shown here, let me know and I’ll be happy to do it! I’m excited to try all of these new things!
Thanks for reading! xx
