@tartecosmetics Park Ave Princess Chisel Palette (@ultabeauty, $46). I’m not usually a fan of a reptile print but the packaging of this palette is . And there’s actually some good weight to this palette—very sturdy and feels like how much I’m paying for it haha. The powders themselves are so pigmented and blendable. I wish there was one more step darker of a matte highlighting powder but I can work with the two provided. If you’re curious, the size of the pans are a little bit longer than the pans in the Clay Play Face and Eye Palette.
@butterlondon Posh Nudes 3-piece Lip & Nail Lacquer Set (@kohls, $29). It includes a Plush Rush Lip Gloss, a Plush Rush Lipstick, and a Patent Shine 10x Nail Lacquer. Love their nail polish formula! It’s my first time trying the lip products but I do have to say I really like the package of the lipstick. It feels nicely weighted and has a magnetic click for the cap. I got this set when it was on sale at Kohl’s so I think it was a really good deal!
@stilacosmetics Eye For Elegance (@sephora, $45) and Written In The Stars (@sephora and @ultabeauty, $25) liquid eyeshadow sets. I love how small these are because I know with ALL the makeup I have... I won’t finish one shade before it dries out. Do you have these? I’m so excited to slap these on and wear glitter for the holidays
@cleanperfume Eau Fraiche Layering Collection (@ultabeauty, $20) >> I’m honestly not much of a perfume person, but I do love the scent of being clean and fresh. If you’re like me, try out CLEAN Fragrances. They have a range of scents like Fresh Laundry, Rain, Warm Cotton and more. I love these little sets because you can try out all the scents —these are in small spray vials of 0.14 fl.oz.—without the commitment and price point of a full sized fragrance. Plus, this set in particular has notes of pear, grapefruit, mandarin, lavender, vanilla and coconut. And! I just learned the difference between eau fraiche and eau de parfum—eau fraiche has a small percentage of essential oils, while eau de parfum has the highest concentration of essential oils, about 20%.
@ultabeauty “The Season’s Most Coveted Makeup Sampler” >> I bought this set in my last #ultahaul. I was so excited because I was hoping Ulta would start making sets like Sephora does. It’s a great way to really try out items without shelling out all the money at once. This set retails for $29, but you do get a $5 gift card towards one of the full sized version of the samples in the box. (I’m not sure if the gift card is limited to exact shades provided in the box, or if you can select whatever shade —lipstick/highlighter/etc—you want). I put a quarter for size reference in the second picture—these samples are SAMPLE SIZED. I understand some people returned this set after seeing how small these items are...but realistically, in my opinion, it’ll take me a while to go through the @beccacosmetics highlighter and @bareminerals lipstick. I know for a fact that The @itcosmetics brow pencil lasts for at least two months of daily application because I’ve been working through the same exact sample size for a while now before this box haha. Have you tried these items? What do you think of @ultabeauty setting up these sampler boxes!
@loraccosmetics Hydrating Lip Stain in Secret Agent. It's not a lipstick, but it is pigmented enough to pass off as one! And as the balm wears off, it wears off nicely without patches and leaves behind a pinch of color until your next application. I got mine from @kohls but you can also get these at @ultabeauty for $19 each! if you want the shade Secret Agent, consider getting the Live Color The Festival Essentials kit from @kohls for only $36! You get a full size Blush in Technicolor, a Full size Pomade Mascara, a cute makeup pouch, and a sample size of the Face primer. You're welcome
The current rotation of #mascara I wear. I've been really liking the @tartecosmetics Lights, Camera, Splashes (waterproof version!) mascara, Gifted mascara, and Maneater mascara formulas. My lashes don't hold curls very well but I've found these give them a little lift, and they don't smudge on my lower lashline. For my everyday mascara though, I prefer the Gifted Mascara do you have a favorite mascara?
@ultabeauty #giftwithpurchase deals always get me! I'm having such a hard time trying to resist the current #platinumperk #giftwithpurchase here's the goodie beauty bag I got before the one being offered today; so many goodies, they can hardly fit in one flat lay! and not enough tags to tag them all!
