I love Ulta, if you all know me you know that Ulta and Sephora are pretty much my fav stores EVER. 💖
This is what I got:
Ever since I randomly stumbled upon the new blush by Benefit on an Australian website,”Galifornia” has been on the top of my list- because I knew it was one that I’d fall head over heels for. Galifornia is the absolute reason I splurged a bit today…
I went to Ulta, and I went to a corner store afterwards (mainly to pick up some mucinex for my mom who has a cold; keep away from sneezers people it’s cold / allergy season).
And yes, I did take these photos outside. 🙂 The best lighting is there, and today was a nice day anyway’s so psh if you judge me.
Onto the things at Ulta:
1. Soap and Glory ‘Clean on Me” shower gel.
2. Soap and Glory Super cat liquid liner pen (which slightly terrifies me, but less than the super cat fat liquid liner unless I was going for a thick liner look which I rarely do) in “jet black”. Still a hard-core dollywink eyeliner fan. 😉
3. Benefit Cosmetics “Galifornia” Blush. Fun spin on California, which I’m hoping / wishing to go to in June for VidCon. I’ve read some reviews on it that mention the golden overlay disappearing after 5 swipes and while that’s most likely true, I still felt the need to buy it. It looks like summer, it smells like summer, it simply reminds me of summer. Plus, Coralista my all time favorite blush ever to exist which always comes from Benefit reminds me a bit of this by glancing at it. Not entirely sure if it will resemble it all but either way I have a gut feeling I’m going to love it. ^_^
Onto the things at the corner store:
That is the mini look into what I bought today!
Hope you enjoyed reading, do you know of anything I should keep my eye out for make-up wise, hair wise, book wise, or all sorts of wise?
I’m not sure if I’ve ever talked about the Bare Minerals original foundation before, but I’m going to do it now whether or not I have. 🙂
It is AMAZING.
It comes in two different formulas: original and matte.
It has SPF 15.
It can be used as a foundation or a powder.
It makes you’re face look flawless.
I have the shade “medium beige” in the original formula which is $27.50, in an un-screwable packaging.
The downside is that it can be messy- so i tend to tap away excess either over the sink or on the side somewhere AwAY from my clothes. I definitely don’t suggest applying it while sitting down in an almost all black outfit, but you can try it if you dare.
Another iffy thing is the packaging for the bare minerals foundation looks just like the packaging for their mineral veil powders and blushers etc. which is no big deal but can be for some; if someone is shopping in a rush and picks up the wrong formula or more expensive product than say a $22 product (As you can see I thought of one of the worst-case scenarios as per usual).
Let me know if you’ve used these before, and what one 🙂
Nothing compares to the scent and feel of Mac lipsticks… except for Essence.
Mac lipstick retails for $17 whereas Essence retails for $2.99.
Mac Creme D’Nude
I bought the essence lipstick “Like a princess” #13 back in July, and alternated between that lipstick and the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lip in #401 “Julianne’s Red” during the summer.
I have been fighting the urge to wear them until recently where I realize spring is on the way and that it is the perfect time to begin again (lol Taylor Swift reference, what else would you expect).
Recently I’ve rediscovered Mac’s Creme D’Nude considering I am as whites as snow at the moment and I have to be honest, I still can’t get over how AMAZING it smells.
As you all know by now, I love Sephora. I LOVE Sephora.
Recently I found myself completely out of face moisturizer and concealer especially (those dark circles of mine will overtake me if I give them the power) so I decided to order some.
Maybe you like these products yourself, or maybe you wanted to see what the look like in real life, either way let me know what you love from Sephora! 🤣
This face cream is amazing.
I bought mine at Sephora, but it can also be purchased at Nordstrom in the Michigan area or if you have one of those around you.
I was in the market for a new moisturizer as my old one I had bought twice before and wasn’t quite doing the job I needed it to anymore; decided to give this one by Fresh a go. It does smell of cucumbers, so if you’re not a fan of that sent I wouldn’t suggest picking it up.
I myself am not a fan of cucumber, but I love what the moisturizer makes my face look and feel like. I find it a win rather than a flop.
Pros and Cons:
Pros: Makes skin appear radiant and glowy ( I LOVE this), lightweight, anti-aging (I know you’re all most likely shouting at your screens now because I’m only 20, but I wanted to try it so shh please), Made in France (I put this here because one day I wish to live there), doesn’t fall out of the pot if turned upside down, comes in a jar so you don’t have to squeeze the product out of the tube.
Cons: Strong scent of cucumber (personal preference), No SPF, extra product around the rim of jar (can’t think of the technical term for it at the moment), an incredibly long name (I added this for kicks).
I hope you all enjoyed this little review!
P.S. Let me know what moisturizer you use, and if you have any recommendations do let me know!
