Ulta sent out a 20% off your entire purchase coupon, so naturally I had to go and buy entirely too much. =) I was so happy to find that the few items I had on my list were in stock AND I found a couple of unexpected bonus items!
Urban Decay – Vice LTD Pallet
Look at the color of that case! It’s so weird… and bright… and green! I love it! =D I have collected all of the Vice pallets, which is why I almost passed on this purchase. However, when I thought of missing this and having a hole in my collection, I decided it was better to live with no regrets! Urban Decay is some of my favorite eye shadows, so I already know that I’m going to love these.
Tarte – Tartelette Pallet
This pallet has been ALL OVER YouTube! Everyone is singing it’s praises so I was of course very curious. I really love that they are all matte shadows! Sure, you can get one or two in any given pallet, but I have been really into the mattes lately and love that I can get a whole matte look in one place. They swatched very smoothly at the store as well, so I have very high hopes for this.
Anastasia Beverly Hills – Contour Kit (light shades)
I have been looking for this since before Christmas but it is sold out everywhere! (And before anyone says anything, I know that I can order it online, but I am definitely an instant gratification kind of girl. When I buy it, I want it in my hands!) I picked up the LAST one in the store! This is the perfect addition to my collection and I can use it on my friends as well. I wish that the case was a little sturdier, and not held closed by a magnet, but I think it’ll be OK as long as I don’t manhandle it. It was a pleasant surprise to find that the color pans are removable, so I can purchase singles and customize the pallet to meet my needs.
Too Faced – Melted Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Berry
This is another product that I had heard good things about, so I thought it was worth a try. It goes on very smoothly and the fragrance is very light and non-offensive. I don’t know why, or where I heard it, but for some reason I was under the impression that the color didn’t transfer; however it turns out this is not the case and the color transfers and smears very easily. I’m hoping that the wear-time will make up for this.
Zoya – Matte Velvet Lacquer in Harlow
I found this gem in the clearance section! I have no idea why; it is so pretty! It’s a sparkly purple with a matte finish. Zoya is one of my favorite nail polish brands and I have yet to be let down with one of their products.
Overall, it wasn’t a large haul, but I am still very happy with the items I picked up and can’t wait to try them all out! It’s always a good day when you get makeup! =)
