Weekly Ulta Haul 1-28-17

Happy Saturday! This is my first weekly Ulta haul review. Since I shop there weekly, (obsessed much), I thought I would share some of my purchases. What I’ve been doing lately is purchasing items that have just come out. I have the Ulta app on my phone and have been perusing new arrivals.  Oh what fun, and a colossal time waster. But if it helps to take my mind off the cluster f*&k crap going on in the United States, it’s time well spent. I’m also big coupon clipper. Between Ulta coupons and manufacturer’s coupons, I save a ton. I had a 20% off my entire purchase coupon. The Essence products were buy one get one 50% off.

Above is everything I got. First off, Burt’s Bees Flavor Crystals lip balm in Tropical Pineapple. Don’t even waste your time.  It was terrible. I should have listened to the reviews on Ulta’s website.  It feels like sandpaper on your lips, and tastes nothing like pineapple.

Next up Essence Longlasting Lipstick in Barely There! all I can say is wow!  This lipstick is a whopping $2.99USD!  The color is gorgeous and very creamy. The swatch looks darker than what it actually is. It’s such a pretty neutral color, that I think would look good on anyone.  I paid $1.97 USD.

 

Burt’s Bees Gloss Lip Crayon in Outback Oasis The color is not as dark as what is in the tube.  I was trying to match a Clinique Chubby stick I have, and it was kinda close.  It’s a very nude shade. Cost $8.99 USD, I won’t purchase again. I paid $7.19 USD.

 

Neutrogena MoistureSmooth color stick in Almond Nude This is a really pretty nude suitable for everyday. Cost was $8.99 USD.  It’s very creamy and feels great on the lips.  I like the stick lip colors as they are easy to reapply during the day. I paid $7.19USD

Essence All About Nude eyeshadow pallette I’m more impressed with the Essence line as I purchase more products.  This palette was only $5.49USD for eight colors.  I paid $3.62 USD. There is a mix of matte, satin sheen and metallic colors.  The matte colors are very pigmented, and the line doesn’t do animal testing.  This palette is made in Italy as is the lipstick I purchased.

 

CeraVe Skin Renewing Day Cream SPF 30 This is a new brand for me. The cost is $23.99 USD. I paid $19.19USD . Here’s Ulta’s description:

CeraVe Skin Renewing Day Cream with SPF 30 was developed with dermatologists. Its unique formula with 3 essential ceramides is designed to reduce the look of fine line & wrinkles. MVE Technology controlled release for all day hydration. Won’t clog pores, gentle on skin, Fragrance Free. I’ll do a more detailed review after I have used it for awhile.

Another wonderful use for Argan oil!

Argan oil face_skin 3-9-15I used a few drops on my face right after I showered.   After about ten minutes, I put on my 30 SPF moisturizer as usual.  Then my liquid foundation. OMG!  My skin looked amazing.  I think the argan oil works better than a primer.  Every time I went to the bathroom today, (which is a lot because I have a bladder the size of a walnut) I couldn’t get over how good my skin looked.  My skin looked nice and dewy up until I took my make up off a little while ago.  I put my foundation on at 7 am, and took it off at 8 pm.  I also picked up some Almay stick concealer at the dollar store.  I don’t normally use stick concealer because it’s too heavy. Guess what? This stuff is great!  It worked really well under my eyes and around my nose.  It especially worked on the dent in my forehead.  Score one for Stacy!

Happy Monday!
