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!

I am giving away FIVE Urban Decay Shadow Boxes!  So five of you very lucky readers have a chance of winning!

Have you tried Urban Decay eye shadows?  They are amazing!  Rich colors and extremely well pigmented.  This palette is only available at ULTA Beauty. Here is the description of the product from http://www.ulta.com:

Don’t let the size of this palette fool you. It’s loaded with a DOZEN of Urban Decay’s most amazing shades – from pale to deep, matte to sparkly. The lineup? Nine bestsellers and three never-before-seen shades you’ll reach for again and again. Experiment with a diverse range of looks. Whether you want to do a purple eye, a green eye, a smoky eye or a shimmery eye, it’s all here!

Inspired by Urban Decay’s long-running Ammo Palette, with a completely updated (and even bigger) shade range, Shadow Box is the perfect all-in-one palette. Whether you’re new to Urban Decay or you’ve got a whole stash of UD products on your vanity, the Shadow Box is one palette you need in your arsenal.

From new shades like Baked Cowboy (an amazing golden bronze) and Moonshadow (a stunning bright navy blue) to cult classics like Sin, Mushroom and Blackout, Shadow Box has something for everyone. Every shade features Urban Decay’s Pigment Infusion System, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives each shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power and blendability.

The Shadow Box palette features dark, gorgeous orchids in rich purple hues. Inside, the same orchid artwork repeats in black and white (to contrast all of those amazing shadows!). The finishing touch: a cool magnetic closure in the shape of the UD icon.

ULTA Beauty’s 21 Days of Beauty For Fall 2014 Week 3 — Last Week

 

Ulta

It’s the third and final weeks of ULTA’s 21 Days of Beauty!  The time has flown by and it’s almost fall.  Do you have your fall makeup yet?  What new makeup have you purchased?

Today’s steals are:

Laura Geller Beauty Balance-n-Brighten Baked Color Correcting Foundation ($20 on sale today, $33 regular price) — A revolutionary baked foundation with multiple color infusions to color-correct your skin and give you a glowing, flawless-looking complexion. Mineral oil and paraben-free formulation also contains powerful anti-aging and anti-oxidant protection of centella Asiatica and white tea extracts. Features a matte finish.

Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara ($10 on sale today, $19.50 regular price) — Inspired by the on-set technique of layering a lengthening fiber mascara over a volumizing formula, Smashbox’s new studio-tested mascara exposes your longest, fullest lashes. No clumps, no flakes. Just maximum-impact, scene-stealing lashes.

I have used both of these products before, and they are very good.  The Smashbox mascara does lengthen and volumize and the Laura Geller powder is an easy way to get a full coverage foundation and a matte finish to your look.

Visit ULTA Beauty stores today and http://www.ulta.com to get these great deals, and through Saturday, September 27th for other great deals. Also, follow ULTA Beauty on Facebook, @ulta_beauty on Twitter, and @ultabeauty on Instagram.

ULTA Beauty’s 21 Days of Beauty For Fall 2014 Week 2

Ulta

Hi All!  Have you been enjoying ULTA Beauty’s 21 Days of Beauty?  I picked up a few things I needed online and used the $3.50 off of $10.00 coupon.  If you sign up for Ulta rewards, you will be emailed these periodically.  Just visit http://www.ulta.com or an Ulta store and sign up!

Today the Beauty Steal’s are:

Pür Minerals Chateau Kisses Lip Gloss ($8 today, reg. $18) — These one-of-a-kind lip glosses pack a pout-perfecting punch with age-defying Resveratrox®, freshly harvested from Bordeaux’s finest wine-producing grapes! Never sticky or tacky, this luscious, lip-plumping formula provides hours of dewy colour along with visibly softer, smoother lips—even after the gloss comes off! Paraben-free. Gluten-free.

Online, it looks like this is only available in Scandalous, the color above.  The stores may have more shades available.  I love Pür Minerals and have tried their Lip Gloss Sticks, so I’m sure this is great, too!

tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara ($10 today, reg. $20) — A lengthening, curling, volumizing, and conditioning mascara infused with olive esters to condition, treat, and protect lashes.

One of my all-time favorite mascaras, this one is a steal today!  This lengthens and give volume to my puny little lashes, making it look like I actually have some!  And tarte is a natural makeup brand, so you know this won’t hurt your lashes or eyes.
