Ulta Haul

Ulta Favorites

I love Ulta. Aside from MAC, it's pretty much the only store I shop at for beauty products. You can find anything from face masks to hair ties. The best part about the store is the rewards program. I'm constantly getting discounts, they regularly have $3.50 off $15, and you get a free gift on your birthday.

Here's what I picked up on my last visit to Ulta.

Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy Eyeshadow

This year the free birthday item was this full-size Urban Decay eyeshadow. The champagne color is on the light side (I'm assuming because it probably looks good on all complexions) and has a little sparkle, but I do have to put a lot on for it to show up. Once I have a few layers I really like the look. You can see the subtly pretty shade on my thumb. That's one coat.

Orly Epix Nail Polish

I love the colors of Orly polish. They have vibrant shades that are so fun. The picture above doesn't even do this color justice, it's more fluorescent than it looks. I've used this two-step polsih before and it was great but for some reason this duo chips right away. Total bummer since the pair of polishes are $20 together. I'm hoping I applied poorly and it lasts longer the next time.

it Cosmetics CC+ Cream

This is my jam! I live in this cream during the summer. It provides good coverage while protecting from the sun. It's perfect for a day at the beach too because it's waterproof. Since it contains SPF it does have a bit of that same consistency as sunscreen so I usually do a real light powder over because I don't like the feel of lotion. I highly recommend checking it out!

Do you have an Ulta near you, or do you shop the store online?

The UD Midnight Cowboy eyeshadow is one of my all time favs, and the free b-day gift came at perfect timing since I just hit the pan on mine <3
