Ulta Beauty Mini Haul

Hey Chics!

It's been awhile since I actually got to have a little retail therapy, so I was VERY happy when I received a $50 Ulta Gift Card for doing a confidential review for some upcoming products that have yet to be released! SHHHHH, it's a Secret....

Although, I am NOT able to tell you guys about that part, I CAN tell you about the lovely products that are in my Ulta Bag!

So this was considered a Mini Haul since ya girl is still on a budget, lol.😂

 

Honestly I was just picking up any primer and throwing this in my bag, I was pretty shocked at the price when I was at the checkout, since it's NYX, you know. It's usually cheap, but they stepped up their game! I tried it out, and this shit is LEGIT! I used a flat foundation brush to apply it all over my face, and it has a very nice hold.

NYX HD Studio Photogenic Concealer "Yellow" $4.99

I ran out of concealer; and I saw this one and was like: "Oh, what the hell," and threw it in my bag. Honestly, it appeared thick when I dabbed it on, but seemed pretty transparent once I actually started blending it in. I would recommend building with this particular concealer.

NYX HD Finishing Powder "Banana" $9.99

Okay, so I know you're starting to see a trend here... I'm on a NYX Binge... I ran out of my actual Banana Powder, so I needed a quick fix until I could order some more. This powder isn't half bad! It baked very nicely over the NYX HD Studio Photogenic Concealer and gave me a really nice matte finish. NYX, you came in clutch with this one!👍🏽

NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray $7.99

This is my Go-To product FOREVER.

This brow pencil is a definitely a quick fix in most of my morning beauty routines, or shall I say morning non-beauty routines when I wake up and want to do NOTHING more that just my brows for work because you know.. Eyebrows MUST be on FLEEK.

Ardell Double Up Wispies $5.49

Finally, something NOT NYX!!!!!😂  I am finally going back to my eyelash roots with the Ardell as I do not have and refuse to have a budget for expensive ass lashes that do the EXACT same thing!!! **Rant Over**

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge + Travel Sponge Case $6.99

I actually never realized how much I liked the precision tip until I actually used it with my foundation and concealer. It was LIFE CHANGING. I'm honestly conflicted between this and the original Beauty Blender, and that's saying something.👀

Neutrogena Oil-Free Cleaning Wipes - Pink Grapefruit $7.99

I love wipes, and I love the clean feeling they give me! I normally am a Simple Skincare kind of girl, but I wanted to give my old Neutrogena wipes another go. So far, I'm very happy!

Overall, my total came out to about $71.60, but HOLD UP! Ya girl came in clutch with that 20% OFF Coupon for Ulta, so the price went down to $57.29! Then, I hit em with tha Gift Card, so my total was a WHOPPING $7.29!!! How's that for a discount?

Make sure to check out Ulta, and their awesome discounts they have going on right now! You DO NOT want to miss out!

I hope you enjoyed this list! What's in your Mini Haul!? I'd love to know! Comment BELOW!

My Six Product Face

Hey Chics!

We see a lot of beauty gurus with their makeup SLAYED for the gods! But how many products do they use!?

A LOT.

Now, I myself am quite guilty of using 10-15 products on my face to get the perfect look, so I decided to challenge myself by using only 5-6 products for this look. (Believe me. It was NOT easy using only 6 products).

Here are the products I used:

Of course, with only 6 products, the look was going to be very natural, so I had to plop in a bold lip!


First, I used my all time favorite drugstore foundation by Maybelline! It's perfect for my sensitive oily/combination skin, and does not break me out what-so-ever! I added a dab to my damp Beauty Blender (a little really goes a long way) and blended it in all over my face and neck. For full-coverage, I add just a little dab and go over my face again.

 

 

Next, I use my Anastasia DIPBROW Pomade in Granite. This is perfect if you want deep brows (or when you run out of your eyebrow pencil)! I try not to use a lot because the color is VERY dark, and can look crazy if done incorrectly. Overall, I really like this product!

 

On to the contour! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my L.A. Girl Pro Concealers!!!! They give me the best full-coverage, and are complete perfection for highlighting & contouring! The best part though is they are VERY cheap!! I highly recommend these concealers HANDS DOWN. I also use a Beauty Blender and Oval Brush to blend out the concealer!

 

Now, I go back to my eyes and use the Absolute New York Nano Liner. I got this liner by accident in one of my Amazon packages from a seller who was sending me products for reviewing, and I just fell in love with it! It's actually a great liner substitute for when I run out of my Kat Von D Tattoo Liner!

 

Next up is Buxom's NEW BIG Tease Plumping Mascara! I was one of the first bloggers to receive this product complimentary, and I didn't even know I had it until my parents (FINALLY) told me that it was mailed to their house! I could have been using this like a month or so ago...😩😩😩  But better late than never! I really love how the first and second coat goes on, but because my lashes are crazy (I have to straighten them by turning the curler upside down then re-curl them), I had to add additional coats, which made it clump a little. Nothing a clean mascara wand can fix! Overall, I really liked how my lashes turned out. 

Lastly, I added the bold lip! Now, at one point, I was not one to wear bright colors on my lips, especially ORANGE!! As time went on and also working at Sephora, I was able to experiment and try new things. Come to find out, I don't look half bad in bright colors!😂😂  This color is called "Orange County" by NYX Cosmetics, and I am in LOVE with this color! I finished the makeup look with a few coats of this liquid lipstick, and I was ready to rock & roll!


The Finished Product

DRUMROLL...............................

TADA!!!!

TADA!!!!

I am very happy with how the final look turned out! I think this will be my Go-To look when I just want to keep it simple. It's not time consuming, and it's a versatile look for work and for going out! This is also a fun way to experiment with lipsticks - Just switch up the color!

What do you think about this look?

What are your 5-6 Products you can use for a full look?
