Hi all! I wanted to share a few things I picked up during Ulta’s recent 21 Days of Beauty. I didn’t go crazy, which is good. I picked up a couple of things I needed and a couple of impulse buys as well!
I actually shopped in the last couple of days of the sale. I had been tempted buy other items, but I waited for the one main item I wanted to get, Laura Geller’s Balance-n-Brighten Baked Color Correcting Foundation!
I bought this last year in Fair and loved it! I used it up in a few months and hadn’t purchased it since. I have been using other liquid and powder foundations, but this one has been on my mind.
It is so silky and glides across the skin. And I love that it doesn’t settle into my pores. The regular price is $32, but it was on sale for $16.50. Amazing! That’s all I was going to get that day, but then I saw this:
So pretty! I love Laura Geller’s packaging!
Laura Geller’s Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator Palette! This is normally $32 and was on sale for $19.50. (I love it so much when prestige makeup brands on sale!)
I’ve been wanting to try these for a while and they are so pretty. I think my favorite is Gilded Honey, it will be perfect for Fall, but Ballerina surprised me. It’s really pretty on. I usually wear more ivory highlighters, so these are a nice change! (swatches below)
I ended up also visiting Ulta on the last day of the sale for this mascara!
Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Super Curling & Lifting Mascara. This is $24 and was on sale for $12. This was on sale earlier in the 21 Days, but they added it for the last day.
I’ve been wanting to try this for a while and it did not disappoint. The brush grabs all my lashes and curls and extends them. It also adds so much volume! I think I may have found one to rival my current faves — IT Cosmetics Superhero and L’Oreal Lash Paradise!
I had also seen in the add that this was going to be on sale — but I had the hardest time choosing a shade!
butter LONDON Glazen Eye Gloss in Oil Slick. Normally $24, it was on sale for $12. This was the darkest color in the bunch. I loved that the color shifts in the light. I have swatched it below so you can see.
The texture of this is so weird! It’s like a slimy mousse. I apply it with my finger onto my eye lid. It dries very quickly, so if I want a more dramatic look, I have to layer it.
This was a total impulse buy!
Benefit Cosmetics ka-BROW! Cream-Gel Eyebrow Color With Brush. This is also $24 and was on sale for $12.
I have dark, thick brows. The most I usually do with them is tweeze and use clear brow gel. But as I get older, my brows are becoming sparser, so a little color probably should be used. I got shade 4, which is medium to dark brown with a neutral undertone. If I use black brow products, it’s way to dark on my fair skin, so this is very nice. It looks natural on and it easy to use with the brush.
Here are my swatches:
The top row is the Laura Geller Swirled palette in Ballerina, Gilded Honey and Peach Glow. The bottom row is the eyebrow and the Glazen shadow. The first is two layers and the second is one sheer layer.
