Ulta Haul

20130916-111315.jpg

I haven’t really been in the shopping mood recently (I’ve only been to the mall like once in the past several weeks), but I was excited to go to Ulta with my mom and my sister Sunday. I picked up a few things that I’ve been wanting to try and other products that I have used up and wanted to replenish.

So I bought two Maybelline lipsticks from their Sensational Vivids line. Wild Rose (on the left) and On Fire Red (on the right) were my picks. I also picked up two of Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lip glosses in Snow Pink and Sugar Violet. I had Sugar Violet already but it’s practically gone now.

Of course, I had to pick up my favorite nail polish remover, which is made by Ulta. I am telling you, all you have to do is stick your nails in and they come out clean with very little work. Love this remover! And yes, I needed two!

All Maybelline and Revlon products were buy one, get one 50% off so I got a pretty good deal on these lippies. I also had a $3.50 off coupon, which always helps. There were a ton of things on sale, so you may want to check out your local Ulta stores when you get a chance.

I hope everyone is enjoying their week! xx

Beauty Obsessions

DSCN0154

Raise your hand if you beat your face even when you are going to be sitting in the house. Don’t be ashamed!! I do it all the time. There is nothing like thick brows, an even face, voluminous lashes, and a bangin’ lipstick no matter what you may have going on. Even if your outfit isn’t completely there, as long as your face and hair (and nails) are decent, no one can tell you anything! At least that’s how I feel about it!

Here are some of my beauty obsessions that I use practically on a daily basis:

  1. Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation (Shade 11.0)
  2. Mac’s Rebel Lipstick
  3. Make Up Forever’s Smoky Lash Mascara
  4. Mac’s Prolong Wear Concealer (NW40)
  5. Mac’s Mineralized Skin Finish (Deep Dark)
  6. Wet’n Wild’s Red Velvet Lipstick (910D)
  7. Fresh’s Sugar Lip Treatment (Clear)
  8. Mac’s Eyebrow Pencil (Spiked)
  9. Sigma’s Flat Kabuki Brush
  10. Loreal’s Voluminous Fiber Mascara

In case you wanted to know what the lipsticks look like, here are some swatches of each:

Although I love natural looking make up, I often get bored with nude lips. These two lipsticks really make my look pop. No matter what your skin tone is, trust that you will like both…At the very least, try the Wet’N Wild one, which is only $2 in CVS. You can’t beat that!

I hope you all enjoyed this post and if you have any questions about the products mentioned, please feel free to ask! xx…Kel

New Beauties

I went to the mall the other day with my Mom and picked up a few beauty items. I’ve been obsessing over Dior’s new Addict Extreme lipsticks every since I saw them on Huda’s blog not too long ago. I purchased Plaza, which is a  creamy pink that felt so smooth and moisturizing on my lips when I tried it on. What I hate about regular lipsticks is that the colors are often too much. Plaza is gorge and is buildable. You can pack more on if you want more color, but it isn’t overwhelming. Loves it!

I tried on Lucky (a subtle red) as well and I will probably purchase that one later. I had to have Plaza ASAP! Lol…I also purchased the Dior Show Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum since I’ve heard that it is good for priming and conditioning your lashes.

From Sephora I purchased the Benefit They’re Real Mascara (which I have heard great things about) along with a Chloe fragrance (rollerball). Because I already have a lot of perfume, spending $110 on a regularly sized Chloe perfume was neither logical nor a priority at the moment. But the fragrance is amazing! If you haven’t smelled it, please run to Sephora or Nordstrom and try it out.

I can’t really offer a review on any of these products yet, but as I get the opportunities to use them, I will report back to you all.

I hope everyone has a blessed day!!! Muah! XOXO
