Ulta Haul!!

I have been going a little crazy shopping lately.. my excuse is my birthday. That works right? Anyways if you haven’t seen my SheIn haul check it out here What Iā€™m Packing For a Caribbean Honeymoon. I got tons of great stuff for so little money! But now it’s time to jump in to what I got at Ulta!IMG_4847

First I had to get my hands on the BH Weekend Festival Palette ( 18$ ). It has 20 vibrant and insanely pigment rich colors. I do wish it had one matte light pale color to use as a base but other than that there are so many looks to be made!! I can’t wait to dive in to it! IMG_4852Next up I got a kit from Lorac called the Sun Kissed Glow Collection ( 34$ ). It includes a bronzer, blush, and highlighter. I thought this was an amazing deal. I really love Lorac’s products. I feel like they don’t get enough recognition but I own practically the whole collection.. Just so good!!! IMG_4850IMG_4851

I picked up some Ardell Items because they were on sale and I can always use spare lashes and glue. So I got a duo pack of wispies and the Duo brush-on dark adhesive ( both were 3.59$ ). They always look good, stay all day, and don’t look too crazy.

I lastly picked up two items based on Youtuber recommendations. I got the essence Brighten Up! Banana Powder ( 4.99$ ) and the NYX Pigment Primer ( 6.49$ ). I will let you know what I think. So far I have tried the brighten powder and I do enjoy it.

So I did get a free gift with spending so much which was awesome. It was a makeup bag filled with lipsticks! I got to choose from nudes or bright colors and of course I chose bright!

And below are swatches in the same order from the bottom.IMG_4848

It’s been a while since I’ve done an updated beauty favorites so here we go! Please let me know in the comments what you are loving. I love knowing what everyone is using and maybe I will find my next beauty favorite!

First up I have to mention Saturday Skin. I will not go into too much detail because I have a dedicated post to them which you can find Here:Saturday Skin- Changed My Life! IMG_4315Next item has been all over blogs and youtube and that is the Maybelline 24H foundation. I found this to give great coverage, it was super smooth, and lasted all day while playing outside with my Son. Two thumbs up from this girl!

Coulorpop has always killed the game with super affordable products and I picked up some more recently for my collection. I love these lippie stix. They are very creamy and have amazing pigment. I also picked up a lipstick and it was Amazing! I can’t get enough! Screen Shot 2018-04-02 at 1.51.16 PM

I recently picked up a new eyeliner and was so blown away by how good it was.. It was covergirl!! This totally shook me because it seems as though lately covergirl has just not been keeping up with trends or product or even packaging. It’s something I just pass by especially when you have brands like colourpop making bomb products at great prices. But after trying this eyeliner I may have to take a second look. I purchased a matte black and it doesn’t transfer or smudge. It is perfect.Screen Shot 2018-04-02 at 1.52.19 PM

Last up is lashes. I am obsessed with a great pair of lashes but when you wear them all the time you appreciate finding affordable lashes. I got this set from Your Lash Bar and they are fantastic. They are 3D faux mink and so fluttery and soft. I have many pairs from YLB and not all are super amazing. But I definitely reccommend the 3D faux Mink. I have the styles Side Car, Lemon Drop, and Appletini. ( From top to bottom)Screen Shot 2018-04-02 at 1.52.32 PM

That is it for today love bugs! I have lots more ideas coming to you soon!!

New Maybelline Review

OMG finally got around to testing out these lipsticks and a few other products. Maybelline recently came out with a lot of new products and I’m always excited to try out affordable collections! The new product launch included new mini eye palettes, brushes, lip products, setting powder, color corrector, and more. It was a pretty large launch! Out of it I purchased 2 brushes, 2 lip products, and the setting powder.

These the two superstay matte lips that I purchased in the colors dreamer and lover. I have to say they last SOOO long!!! Literally all day wear without having to touch up. I am super impressed. And I think I found my perfect nude with the color dreamer! I have been searching so long to find a bomb nude and I will continue but this one is great!

The finishing powder is really nice and very soft but it isn’t going to replace my Laura Mercier. I do like it and if you are looking for a inexpensive setting powder this is definitely worth a shot!

I will be honest I was shook at the price. 10$ a piece. I do like them because they are super soft and nice but knowing I can get brushes cheaper from Morphe shook me.

Till next time loves
