Mini Ulta Haul

Happy Sunday!  I usually go to Ulta every week.  Lately I’ve been watching my spending, so I gave up my weekly visits. I thought for sure I might croak, but luckily for me I didn’t.

As I was doing my Sunday paper coupon clipping, I came across some Almay coupons I had that were expiring today. I use to use Almay products a lot, but it seems as though the line has dwindled in the past few years. They have a lip color I really like, and had stocked up on awhile ago.  Well these lip colors were on clearance, and I got them for a song. I think they use to cost about $8, I ended up paying $.49 each with the $3 off coupons I had. I have on Smart Shade Butter in Red Medium on the left and Nude Medium on the right.  It’s a very light feel and very moisturizing. And at less than 50 cents each, I’m not complaining.

I also had some coupons for Rimmel, and it was buy one get one for 50% off.  I bought Kate Moss Lasting Finish lipstick in Kate Moss Nude #14 regular price $5.49, I paid $2.78.  I also got Kate Sculpting & Highlight Palette in Coral Glow $6.99 of which I paid $3.95.

First off let me say, my selfie skills suck. I only have on eye make up, and concealer.  I’m not the best at contouring, but I did really like this palette.  It has detailed instructions on the back for best product placement. The blush is a very pretty pale coral color, which looks nice on my pasty white skin. I paid $8 for almost $30 worth of make up. Yeah!

Thanks for stopping by.

Laura Geller Baked Blush N Brighten Dupe

Happy Sunday! Being a snowy day today, I went shopping. I had to make my second Ulta trip this week because I needed to pick up something for my co-worker. Months ago I got a Laura Gellar Baked Blush N Brighten in Tropic Hues from Ipsy.  I really like the color and was contemplating buying a full size which is $28.  I have a 20% off coupon for my entire purchase that I’m holding out buying anything until I have a ton of stuff to buy. Since I’m a platinum rewards member at Ulta, my 20% off coupon works for prestige brands.  Anywho, I was looking at some clearance items and found the almost exact color by Palladio. I’m guessing Ulta won’t be carrying this line any longer since everything was on clearance.  I do see they carry this at Sally Beauty Palladio Herbal Baked Blush in Blushin’ for $6.99.  I paid $1.79 at Ulta.  I was able to compare the two colors at the store.

Holy cow!  They are almost identical. The swatch looks a wee bit different, but they look the same on.

Ipsy April 2015 Glambag Review

Ipsy April 2015 GlambagThe past few months my Ipsy bags have been a bit of a disappointment. So much in fact, I didn’t bother to review most of them.  Well this April bag made up for it.  I’ve been an Ipsy subscriber for 4 ½ years, and have generally been very happy with my monthly bags.  For $10 you really can’t go wrong.  I recently changed my profile, so that may have contributed to my better April bag.

Here is what I got:

Klorane Dry Shampoo with oat milk-$6.50-love the scent, works really well

Hikari Tango powder blush-full size-$15 a pretty matte pink coral

The Balm Nude Dude eyeshadow in Flirty-beautiful brown shade with flecks of gold-$4

Mica Beauty Cosmetic Eye Primer-$22.50-really makes the Flirty shadow pop on my blue eyes

Julie Nail Polish in Damsel-full size$3.99-vibrant fuchsia pink

Total value of April’s bag $51.99. I loved everything this month.  Nothing will be going to my niece’s goody bag this today.

In the photos I have on the eyeshadow, blush and eye primer.

Way to go Ipsy.com!

Physicians Formula Nude Wear Glowing Nude Blush-Review

This new Physicians Formula Nude Wear blush is a great everyday color.   The blush has Nude Wear written on it in shimmer.  The shimmer quickly wears off.  The price was $12.99 at Ulta, but I paid $7.54 as it was a buy one get one 50% off, and I had an Ulta store coupon.

The color I have is Natural and it’s a great peachy color.  My go to color before was Clinique in New Clover. With the Physicians Formula, I barely have to sponge any off.  It’s a great color for my pale complexion.  It is very natural looking and fresh.  It gives me just the right amount of color.

I like that there are four colors in the palette.  I use all the colors together, but you could easily use each color separately. Well one of the colors is a highlighter.  The blush colors are very neutral, and the packaging is adorable.

I’m really digging Physicians Formula lately, and at such a great price, I’ll be saying Buh Bye to Clinique New Clover.
