A couple of weeks ago, I went into Ulta to get my birthday gift, a min Nars Orgasm blush. I picked up a few other drugstore products (of course).
This is my Ulta birthday gift this year. I think I’ve tried a sample of this blush years ago when it was first popular, but I haven’t tried it since them. It’s really pretty on and perfect for the summer.
CoverGirl Katy Kat Gloss ($7.99 USD) is a lip gloss created by CoverGirl Katy Perry. I have it in the color Cateloup. This claims to give shiny lips, but it is is moussey and shimmery. I purchased it to wear over the L’Oreal lipstick, and I do, but it is opaque enough to wear on it’s own. I like the shade a lot, and of course, the cat on the applicator! There are 11 shades. Most of them are brights, so this is probably the only shade I would wear.
Enhanced with an indulgent chocolate aroma, Infallible Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick Les Chocolats scented provides all day full, matte coverage. I purchased this in Dose of Cocoa after I saw Youtuber Tati review it. I love the formula and applicator, but the color I chose isn’t for me. When I first wore it, my husband said I had blue lips! It’s not blue, but it is very cool toned. I do want to purchase this in a warmer shade.
Here are lip swatches:
The L’Oreal one in on the left and the CoverGirl is on the right.
Wet n Wild Megaglo Loose Highlighting Powder in Moon Tears. This was $6.99. I could only find it in my nearby Ulta store, and it was the only one left. I got this because it has received rave reviews and is not easy to find. I like it. It’s really sparkly, thought. I’m going to use it a little more, but might pass it on to one of my daughters.
Wet n Wild Color Icon Baked Blush in Don’t Flutter Yourself. This was $4.99 and it’s limited edition. It’s a shimmery peachy-pink. It’s a great blush topper and I also like using it on my eyes.
Swatches of the face products:
At the left is the highlighter, the middle is the Wet n Wild blush and on the right is the Nars.
Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Quad in Flock Party — $2.99. This is pretty, but not as pigmented as I would like:
The first two are a bit light on my skin, but the other two look okay. I’m still playing with this palette. For the price, it’s a great deal!
I did not take individual photos of the Wet n Wild Perfect Pout Lip Scrub in Citrus Elixir ($3.99) or the Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Chamomile and Lavender ($7 for 4 oz), but I am loving both products. The lips scrub smells and tastes amazing and the spray is so hydrating with a relaxing scent.
Have you picked up any fund drugstore products lately?

Tati is STILL talking about those L’Oreal liquid lips, did you notice? Like, she now compares everything to them. They are on my list to pick up someday as well.
Love the highlighter, you are right, it’s rare to see that in the wild.
I find those eyeshadow quads to be hit or miss. They are, obviously, perfectly wearable. But some have amazing pigmentation and others just don’t perform as expected. As pretty as they are, I think I’ve decided not to get more. Which is sad because all those new ones are just so nice to look at in the package!
This week my daughter and I plan to hit up the only ulta in our area that has flower beauty products in store. She wants another lipstick from them, and I figure it may be fun to expand my collection as well.
I know, she loves them. And they are so nice on, I just need a different shade. I haven’t bought Wet n Wild for years, so it’s so nice to see that their products are mostly good quality for the price! I love Flower Beauty, have fun!
Great haul! I am so jealous of your birthday gift from Ulta! I got a lip oil and last year it was also a lip product! Haha
They need to switch it up, then! I got a NYX eyeshadow palette last year.
Yes I remember I got the lip product last year and then they switch and started giving out the NYX palette haha. If I got another lip product next year I’m going to have to write them a email 😂
That baked blush with the hummingbird is so pretty. I’ve never tried Wet and Wild but that looks like something I need to pick up!!!
I haven’t used Wet n Wild in years, but I have been wanting to try some of the new products. They are definitely worth the price!
