I recently placed an order with Ulta and thought I would share this haul with my loyal readers, despite being filled with mostly boring essentials. Yess let’s go!
What I love most about ordering Ulta online, rather than shopping in-store is the amount of freebies! I have received their emails for years and unlike so many other emails that clutter up my inbox, the Ulta ones are actually worth a damn. Always a coupon, always a gift with purchase and always samples. If you do not currently get the emails from Ulta, do it.
Here’s what I got for $50 exactly: (apologies for the sh*t pics)
Makeup Revolution Renaissance Flick Liquid Eyeliner
I purchased this one based off a recommendation from the lovely Emily Noel. And MAN am I glad I did – this product is AMAZING.
Here is one tiny swipe, not even pressing down hard:
Covergirl Supersizer Mascara
This is my favorite mascara. YES it is tough to remove (just be patient!) but it literally keeps a curl, is separating AND lengthening AND voluminous. It is a freakin’ workhorse.
IT Cosmetics Celebration Illumination Powder Foundation
I decided to just bite the bullet and repurchase this absolutely stunning face powder. I also really like the Benefit Hello Flawless powder (seen here) for under my eyes, but this one just takes the cake in terms of face powder. I purchased the “light” shade if you are curious.
Ulta Cotton Rounds
Told you this was haul was going to be thrilling.
So Totally Clean Micellar Cleansing Water
I needed a new micellar water and since Bioderma is still not sold in the US anywhere, I went with this one.
And now for the freebies!
I received all of these items FREE for spending $50.
Here are a few of the highlights:
Covergirl Cheekers Blush in Iced Cappuccino
This blush is a TOTAL throwback. My girl Lacey and I used to pile this on in high school and I have to say – it is still such a good color! I am in love once again.
Winky Lux Highlighter in Charm
This bite-sized highlighter is almost too cute to use. The packaging? I MEAN. Be still my heart. The highlight itself is an iridescent pinky color, very creamy and very pigmented!
Maybelline Vivid Hot Lacquer in Charmer
I like the consistency and color payoff of this gloss but the color is horrible on me. I’ll be passing along!
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Illumination
The sample size of this product is LEGIT. I have used it a handful of times so far and it really isn’t my fave. It is nowhere as good as the Celebration powders.
Annnd last but certainly not least….
Coach Floral Eau De Parfum
This was not a freebie. Haha I wish. David picked this up for me the other weekend while we were on a date and casually handed it to me at the movies. It smells amazing (you can tell I have already used it ALOT) and the bottle? COME ON. I die.
