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.
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.
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!👍🏽
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**
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.👀
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!
