...Another Ulta Haul

I know I haven't blogged in a while.  I have been super busy with work and just got back from a short trip to Chicago!  (Chicago Haul to come)...

After a stressful week of work I decided to treat myself to some goodies at Ulta!  (some I needed...some I didn't :) )

As usual I had to pick up my essentials-Simple Brand Cleansing Facial Wipes and Not Your Mother's-She's A Tease Volumizing Hairspray.  I couldn't get through my day without these.

Now onto my splurges....

Essie Brand Nail Polish in Cashmere Bathrobe, which is in their newest fall collection-it's a very pretty purply-gray color with just a little bit of sparkly in it.  Love it!  Such a great color for fall/winter.

Benefit Brand Newest Box Powder in Rockateur-a rosey pink cheek color with a hint of sparkle. Just an all around great box powder.  Benefit needs to keep coming out with these.  Great products, worth the money and the packaging is so cute!



and...onto my favorite purchase of them all...

This is exclusive to Ulta and what a great price!

Tarte High - Performance Naturals Fresh Outlook Set $34 at Ulta ($89 Value)

This set is well worth the money!  All full sizes, which is amazing! I cannot wait to test all these products out.  I have used a few tarte products before and was pretty impressed by them.  If you are interested, I will do a review on this kit.   This is what's included in the kit

Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in achiote

Gifted Amazonian clay smart mascara in black
SmolderEYES Amazonian clay waterproof liner in brown
Beauty & the box Amazonian clay eyeshadow quad in "in the buff"
Overall this was a successful trip to Ulta and can't wait to use all my new quality products!

New Favorite Foundation!!!

As fall rolls in, I noticed that the foundation that I used all summer was a little heavy on my face.  After hearing numerous reviews on Youtube regarding this liquid foundation, I thought why not!  I have never used a liquid foundation, so I didn't want to spend too much money. It was a little under $10 at Target.  So, you're wondering what foundation replaced my beloved The Balm-Time Balm Foundation......drum roll please.......

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation!!!!  (the name says it all)!

Not only does this foundation go on quickly with simple pats of the BeautyBlender , it provides great coverage and even leaves that "flawless" look that I crave.  I'm in the shade 810-classic ivory.
I will continue to use this product until it's empty and hopefully I'll end up re-purchasing it!
