Ulta Haul-Justifying Spending An Arm & a Leg

Hi Cherished Ones::

This haul is so that I can share my favorites and new discoveries with you all. If you are interested, keep reading.

**This blog post is incredibly picture obese**

First I got two Kylie lip kits. I was most excited about these because I haven’t tried them yet and I’m a sucker for various nudey taupes.

Cady K described as a “warm pinky nude”
Dazzle described as a “warm terracotta”

When I tested these on my hand they were smooth going on and dried to a very stubborn to remove matte. I think I will really enjoy these sets. At $13.50 each I think they were a great deal.

As I think its somewhat been established I am a fiend for lippies. I love MATTE, nudes and well makeup that old ladies would typically LOVE. So without further adieu I introduce the lip crayons and lip liners I got.

From (L) to (R) we have “mudslide” described as a deep brown, “Canyon” described as a brick red, “Jungle” described as a reddish pink and finally “Wilderness” described as a muted mauve.
From (L) to (R) We have Pinky, Blushing, Flesh, Deep Red, Vamp and Berry Wine.

I just paired down my eyeshadow palettes and here I am buying two more but they were a steal at 2/$24 and these colors are GORGE!

ColourPop “She’s Got Solstice”
ColourPop “All Things Equinox”

I haven’t tried Colourpop before but have been wanting to and have seen so many wonderful reviews. I’m eager to give it a go! I work from home and don’t usually do my makeup unless I need to go into the office for something. I think tomorrow might be an exception so that I can try out these beautiful palettes.

I am incredibly picky about my mascara. It has to be a silicone bristle applicator and has to be waterproof as I wear contacts. So when I saw Urban Decay’s Lash Freak I was dying to try it. For $25 I was skeptical! So when I saw that Ulta has the smaller size I knew that was my opportunity!

LASH FREAK Volumizing & Lengthening by Urban Decay

I will report back on how much I love this stuff. I just have a feeling that its going to be amazing!

I also picked up a blush as I like pinky nudes and this one was perfect!

Mineral Blush in “Sunday Drive” described as a light pinkish peach matte.

Now on to NAILS! Anyone that knows me knows that I love to do my nails. I ALWAYS have my nails done. Its usually gel polish with an accent nail or two. For about ten years I did intricate designs stamped on, decals, rhinestones. I just do NOT have the time for that anymore! So that is where PRESS-ONS come in to play. I have heard that the quality and styles are much better now-a-days so I thought I would give them a try.

These come with the double sided tabs as well as glue. I will try both. I am hoping the tabs work well as I tend to get tired of long nails after about 2-3 days. And the tabs will allow me to save the nails.
These are so pretty and both come with matte nails and TWO different types of accent nails.

A little secret about me is that I love nails so much I actually went to beauty school and became a license nail tech in the state of Oregon simply to learn how to do my own nails correctly and in a way that will preserve my natural nails. I also made some of the best friends that exist in beauty school!

MAN! I know this is getting LONG-winded, but we are about half done!

I love LOVE love love this Shea Moisture Body Oil. Not only does this stuff smell INCREDIBLE (It reminds me of Maui, I’m not kidding I asked to sniff a stranger’s hair)–but it makes your skin so soft and silky. Also, pro tip crush up a cheap highlighter and mix in the bottle for a gorgeous summer glow!

This is also great if you have rough skin (Keratosis Pilaris is something I have struggled with for my whole life) and this makes it so much smoother.

The way to my heart is through bath bombs. Yes, you read that right. My boyfriend knows when he wants to get on my good side to buy me a bath bomb. They are just so relaxing and make your skin so soft and make your bath so much more of a spa experience. I’m definitely a bath fiend.

So, here is the bath bomb haul that will close up this blog post!

Whim Cloud Bath Bomb–When this bad boy makes contact with your bath water it makes a rainbow arch! I WILL be sharing this on my FB page as well as my Instagram SO MAKE SURE YOU ARE FOLLOWING all of my socials!
I love these and they can also be found at Target. I love the long lasting scent and the fact that the creators are sisters as my sister is my best friend! However, they do have a small toy inside that I find to be a bit juvenile as well as taking away from the quantity of the product. With that being said, I will still buy them!
These Ulta Bath Bombs I have not tried yet and am eager to. For $1.85 I really couldn’t pass these up!
Sweet Sunrise and Sugar Rainbow Bath Rocks are also new to me but seem like loads of fun!

Thank you all for sticking this blog post out. I know that it was a long one, but I wanted to give a lot of content for the first post. I will be doing all sorts of blog posts here in the future–remember–every Wednesday and Saturday. If you have suggestions or ideas for posts, PLEASE share! I have a long list of ideas, stories, information and hauls that I want to share with you all.

I love you all and be safe out there!
