Hi beautiful people :-)
I thought I'd share my mini Ulta haul today. I went to pick up my sister from school yesterday and made a quick (hour long) stop at Ulta on the way back. I'm a Sephora girl, possibly because it's closer and there are a lot of them in my area, so I don't visit Ulta much but I will occasionally stop by. On this occasion, I picked up a handful of items before putting a few down at the insistence of my much more sensible little sister and put quite a few others on my wishlist before leaving. Here are the items that made the cut and got to come home with me! (Anyone else ever bring makeup home and feel like you’ve just welcomed new members into your makeup family?)
It Cosmetics Airbrush Blurring Powder Brush No. 126
It Cosmetics makes great brushes you guys. I haven’t tried any of their cosmetics but I do love their brushes. This little guy was the main reason I went to Ulta, I was watching Wayne Goss on YouTube the other day and he used a stippling brush to apply foundation to the model he was working on. It looked so amazingly gorgeous when he was done that I decided I needed a stippling brush too. I’m not sure if that’s what this brush is intended for but that’s what I’m going to use it for! Let’s all be rebels and use our brushes for whatever we want, who are these makeup companies to tell us how to use our brushes eh?!
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer
I’ve heard great things about this concealer from various beauty gurus on YouTube and I loved the feel of it on the back of my hand. I don’t use concealer much so I couldn’t justify buying the full size version but lucky for me they had a mini one. Has anyone tried this? Thoughts on the best way to apply it?
Ulta Beauty Wedges (pack of 32)
I wanted to try these out with the concealer and also with foundation. I like the beauty blender but washing it is such a pain because I’m lazy/busy. I want to see if maybe I can just dampen this and use it to apply my foundation. That way I can just toss it and be on my way and not have to rewash it every time.
NYX Matte Liquid Liner
I haven’t tried my hand at liquid liner at quite a while now. I’m absolutely horrible at it but thought I’d get back to trying it again!
NYX Super Skinny Eye Marker
Umm Nyx had a buy one get one 50% off sale going on so…I needed something to buy with the other liner didn’t I?! You don’t just ignore sales and buy the one thing you need, that’d be craziness. (Update - I tried this and it's a complete dud, it was so light and barely anything came out. Not a fan at all)
Have you tried any of these products? Anything I should add to my ever growing wishlist for the next time I visit Ulta? I would love to know! I hope the week is treating you well, dear reader.
Till next time
