Alright so yes, I have another haul, no I'm not sorry and it's all from Ulta but I didn't spend near what you think. Most of this was 50% off and I also had a 20% off coupon for the expensive stuff which was actually just one thing.
So here's the run down:
Mario Badescue Rose Water Facial Spray.
Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette in Sugar and Spice
Catrice Liquid Metal shadows in Under Treasure and What do you Sea?
NYX Dewy Finish spray
Makeup Revolution Matte Blush in Passionate
Soap and Glory, Hand Food lotion
NYX Under Eye Corrector in Medium
NYX HD concealer wand in Yellow
Becca Afterglow palette
2B Nail Polish
NYX Contour Pro Palette
These are the Catrice Liquid Metal shadows. These are better applied wet. I did two swatches of each one dry and one wet. What Do You Sea? is the Navy/Green one. Under Treasure is the Champagne color. I got these after seeing Kathleen Lights swatch them. These were super inexpensive. I think I got these for like $2 or $3 on sale. Which they aren't expensive anyway. I used Under Treasure in a look already. It was ok, it didn't blow me away but it's a Champagne/Gold color and I used a wet brush to apply it, as you know neutrals aren't my favorite but I really thought it would be more foiled. Maybe if I applied it with my finger it would've been better. I haven't used What Do You Sea yet, I think I will like it more.
All in all I don't know if I'll get more, just because I tend to use my palettes more. If you wanna try this I recommend finding a color that is gonna be your stand out color on the lid cause using this in the crease or trying to blend this won't be easy. I think a really pretty pale pink or rose gold would be really gorgeous.
Alright so the moment has arrived I finally got the NYX Contour Palette. It has 4 highlights 2 matte and 2 shimmer, and 4 contour shades 2 warm and 2 cool tones. My thoughts on this are that....it's really good. If you are on a budget get this. Now my issue is that its so messy and powdery. Which isn't that big of a deal but still it irritates me. The contour shades are very very pigmented and none of them are light really. So use a little at first and then work up from there. Blending this out is harder to do if you use a dense contour brush, if say you use an angled fluffier contour brush or blush brush it works better I think. The highlight shades are amazing. The yellow shade is darker than the Anastasia banana shade in her contour kit I think. So I actually prefer the ivory matte shade. It sets my under eye area better than anything I have ever used. The shimmer shades are really nice as well.
I still prefer the Kat Von D contour palette over everything. If you are a beginner this might over whelm you cause it's 8 shades all together. If you were a beginner I would suggest either one contour shade and highlight in compacts like the MAC Careblend Pressed Powder in Dark and MAC Emphasize for highlight which isn't gonna be like a crazy shimmer. If you want intense shimmer I would do a Becca powder or an Ofra highlight. If you want a palette that offers all that I would get the Anastasia Contour Kit it has six shades 3 contour, 2 matte highlight and 1 shimmer highlight. It's $40 where this NYX is $25. I got this for $15 actually, which is the reason I got it. It's a great product and it's a great thing to have in your kit if you freelance cause it offers a lot of options.
This guy above I have been waiting a while to get. I missed the first 20% off opportunity but not the 2nd one. This is the Becca Afterglow palette. It has 3 highlights and 2 blush. I wanted this because I didn't own any of the highlights and they are all staples of the Becca line including: Moonstone, Rose Gold and Topaz and then the two blushes: Wild Honey and Flowerchild. I have Flowerchild but I will be giving that to my mother cause she loves Becca blushes as well. This palette is a little small. So keep that in mind some brushes just wont work with it. It's a really good price I believe its $32. Then there was a 20% off coupon. I think this is great. It's not extremely necessary but it's a great price and product. Especially if you want to try some Becca products.
I really like Makeup Revolution. The brand really impresses me with it's liquid lipsticks and now it's blushes. I got the Ultra Blush palette in Sugar and Spice. There is a second one with more neutral nude shades. This is obviously more pink. It comes with mostly matte shades and then 2 baked blushes. The baked blushes for me serve as more of a highlighter. 2 of the shades are more neutral and I use them more than the rest. The others are very bright and then there is one that is more peach toned. This is a great palette. It was really inexpensive I think regularly it's $10 I believe I got it for less cause it was on sale. I would totally get this if you wanted a blush palette. I will probably get the other palette as well.
The matte blush is in Passionate. This is crazy bright. I regret it. It's amazing formula. It feels just like silk. Probably the softest formula I've ever felt, it's unreal. The color is just too bright even for me. They do have 6 shades so definitely try one. Personally I want Beloved next it's more nude. These are just $5. Which is incredible.
So the rest of the stuff I got we will go over briefly.
I got the Mario Badescue Rose Water which I've always wanted to try but never did. It's only like $7 I think. It's great. I love it. It's very hydrating and soothing.
Next I got the NYX Dewy Finish spray. This doesn't make me dewy. At all. So I'm not sold on this. It was all 50% off though so it was really cheap. Other NYX things I got were, the under eye corrector in medium which is my 2nd one. I love this stuff as you well know. It works better or as good as anything else I've tried. I also got the HD concealer in Yellow which I had a few years ago and loved for baking but I don't remember it being this dark of a yellow. Yellow corrects redness if you're wondering.
I picked up some 2B Colours Nail Polishes that were only like $1 a piece or something like that. They are smaller than they look online. I got two glitters and then one for my friend that is supposed to look like denim jeans. They have a leather line and everything. I love the glitters but the jean one doesn't look like jeans to me.
The Hand Food lotion from Soap and Glory is a stocking stuffer for someone else and it was only like $4 or $5. It's supposed to be a great hand cream. So hopefully it is.
So that's it. That's everything. Most of the stuff I got wasn't more than $3 or $4 excluding the palettes which were still hardly anything. Ulta really kicked it into high gear this year for Christmas. They've been having some great sales and coupons. As always they have $3.50 off $10 coupon for things that aren't brand name. So check some of this out if you're interested.
I'm a makeup and skincare lover. I have always enjoyed creating looks but I love to help people with product knowledge and application even more. I've been able to do these things because God has seen fit to bless me with the opportunity.
