Ulta Haul!

So I FINALLY got the chance to take a roadtrip to an Ulta store! The closest one to me is about an hour and a half drive away, and I've never been there before! I had a huge wishlist, didn't end up getting EVERYTHING (although I could certainly spend hours, possibly days) in there! But, I still spent probably wayy too much money. Oh well, it was a trip right?! Anyways, I just got home, and I'm gonna swatch and give my first impressions on everything! So here we go!

NYX Green Tea Blotting Papers
Ulta Brand 'Lust in Lace' Nail Laquer collection

Very dark, but each one has gorgeous colored glitter in it. Near black, but more interesting than that! 
Zoya polish in 'Lotus'

Too Faced Amazing Face Foundation Powder in 'Vanilla Cream'
Urban Decay 24/7 Concealer Pencil in 'CIA'

I hope this one lives up to the hype, I'm in the market desperately for an amazing concealer!

NYX Jumbo Pencils in 'Sparkle Green' and 'Milk'

Milk is a staple color I am constantly hearing about, and finally had a chance to pick up! Sparkle Green was just too pretty to pass up. Almost reminds me of UD's Shadow pencil in 'Clinic', which I ADORE! NYX is only a bit less glittery.

NYX Studio Liquid Liner in 'Extreme Blue' and 'Extreme Purple'

Been searching for some affordable colored liquid liners, I saw these online and knew I had to give them a shot! The blue reminds me so much of UD's Radium Liquid Liner.

Urban Decay Lip Junkie Lip Gloss in 'Crush'

Minty! I've been lusting after these for forever, and I finally bit the bullet. I enjoy this one, I'd love to get more, however, as soon as I opened it to try it, the silver decorative part of the cap came loose and fell off! Nothing a little glue can't fix, but for $19, I'd like the packaging to at least stay intact.

NYX Extreme Lip Cream in 'Pinky Nude' and NYX Plump it up Lip Plumper in 'Elizabeth'

Extreme Lip Cream 'Pinky Nude'
Lip Plumper in 'Elizabeth'
Loving the Lip cream! It's like a liquid lipstick. As for the lip plumper, it feels like I'm rubbing chili peppers on my lips! Even just doing this lip swatch burned sooo much. But I'm hoping I'll get used to it, or it fades quickly, since I didn't wear the swatch long.

Stila Lip Glazes. (L to R: Pinata, Kitten, and Maraca)
(Extreme Lip Cream stained my pale arm! xD)
 I knew I loved these before I picked them up. So when I saw a pack of three on sale for $7.99 (normally $20 a pop) I knew it was a steal!

(Not Pictured)
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Minx.
I couldn't get a good picture or swatch of this color, it's just such a unique bluish gold, everything looked like poo. So I decided not to include a picture. However it's the last piece of my Ulta haul!

Overall I'm pretty excited to try out and play with everything I bought. With an unlimited budget, you KNOW I would've bought more! (Who wouldn't!?) But for now, gonna play with what I have, so I can plan out my next roadtrip!


  1. the stila glosses look great

    hugs and kisses

    1. They are lovely! The amount of product you get doesn't seem to be a lot, I wouldn't pay full price for them, but I'd pick them up on sale any day!
