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.
