Ulta Mother’s Day Haul

My kids gave me an Ulta gift card as a part of my Mother’s Day gifts this year.  I don’t usually shop a lot for makeup since I receive a lot of fun products to review.

I was excited to grab some things I needed — and I got a fun free gift, too!

The items that I purchased was the Real Techniques 203 Tapered Shadow brush, The Ulta Beauty Matte Eye Primer and the Ulta Beauty Juice Infused Lip Oil in Green Tea + Avacado.

Ulta Beauty had a gift with purchase, too.  It’s a deluxe Palette with any $16.50 ULTA Beauty Cosmetics, Brushes, and Beauty Tools purchase (offer valid 5/14/17-6/3/17 or while supplies last).  Here’s the palette:


Gift includes:

  • Eyeshadow in 24 shades (0.46 oz)
  • Color Rush Lip Gloss in Brigitte and Proper (0.04 oz each)
  • Matte Lip Cream (0.04 oz)
  • Blush (0.16 oz)
  • Face Powder (0.16 oz)
  • Eyeliner Pencil in Black/Brown (0.02 oz)

I’ve been playing with the palette and really like it.  There are lots of fun eyeshadows.  I find the mattes more pigmented than the glitters or shimmers, but they can be layered on for a deeper color.  The highlighter, blushes and bronzer are highly pigmented and are very pretty on my fair skin.  I like the blush brush that comes with it.  The lip colors are bright.  I like to wear softer lip colors, but they are nice.  I am going to take this with me on my summer trip for my eyeshadows and face color.  It will come in very handy.

Real Techniques Bold Metals 203 Tapered Shadow Brush ($12.99 USD) is densely packed and precision cut for blending shadow into the crease and eyelid for a seamless finish.

I lost my all over eyes hadow brush, so I needed a replacement.  This picks up the pigment well and blends okay.  I think it will work for now.   The handle is nice and has a good weight to it.

Ulta Beauty Juice Infused Lip Oil in Green Tea + Avocado ($9 USD) — Ulta’s Juice Infused Lip Oil is a luxurious lip oil infused with a combination of natural ingredients that nourish and smooth your lips. Each of the shades offer separate ingredient benefits providing a combination of lip mending properties. The Juice Infused Lip Oils do not have any color once applied; they apply clear.

I like this very much.  It has a fresh flavor and is very hydrating on.  I wear lots of lip balms and oils and this is a good one!  I’ll probably try some of the other flavors later.

Ulta Nude Matte Eye Primer ($12 USD) — Ulta’s Eye Primer is a must have product for a crease fee look that lasts all day! Use this exclusive eye primer under eyeshadow to prolong wear and eliminate creasing. Can be used with virtually any eyeshadow formula – powder, gel, mousse, loose pigment, you name it!

I haven’t used this yet, but I will tomorrow.  I let you know if it’s awesome!
