Hello everyone! I hope all of you who live in the United States had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I have been so busy with end of the semester projects and essays I haven’t had time to post. Last month was my birthday and when you are an Ulta Rewards member they give you $10 USD off your purchase and a birthday gift so I had to go pick up some stuff! Some products I repurchased while others I am just now trying. Let me know if you have tried any of these and what you thought! Enjoy!
Soap & Glory Love At First Blush ($15.00): I had never tried this brand before and when I saw their set up at Ulta I really wanted to try something! This blush is like a color wheel with different shades of pink/mauve/white that has a bit of shimmer and I have been loving applying it on top of a matte blush.
Physicians Formula Shimmer Strip in ‘Natural Nude’ ($13.99): I love Physicians Formula’s Butter Bronzer and I really wanted to try more products from them. I have been looking at the Bobby Brown Shimmer Bricks but those are SO expensive and when I saw this I thought it would be perfect to try! There are all sorts of shades ranging from white/light pink to dark brown. Perfect for highlight, blush, or a shimmer bronzer if desired.
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser ($8.99): I have seen so many youtubers rave about this product but after using it a few times I am not sure if I like it. I have a hard time blending it and I feel it just looks like it sits on top of my skin. I may try applying it different ways but so far it is a disappointment.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara ($8.99): This has been my number one mascara for a couple years now. I wear glasses so I don’t want my lashes to be too long or else they’ll hit my lenses but I also want them to look full, thick and black. This mascara does the job perfectly!
NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams in ‘London’ and ‘Stockholm’ ($5.99): I have had both of these shades and they were running low and drying out so I purchased some new ones. London is a warm brown and Stockholm is like a beige pink. I love the formula of these they are so creamy, pigmented, and easy to apply! I would highly recommend these in any shade.
Urban Decay Single Shadow in ‘Midnight Cowboy’ ($19.00): This was my free birthday gift from Ulta, a FULL SIZE eyeshadow! It’s a really nice champagne shimmer shade that’s super pigmented and perfect for all over the lid or inner corner highlight.
Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge ($6.99): This is not pictured because I already threw it away. I decided to try this one more time after having it a year ago and not being a fan, and still I do not like it. It doesn’t blend my make up very well and it also doesn’t have a round end which I like on my sponges. I know so many people love this sponge so it was disappointing that it didn’t work for me.
