I went to Ulta yesterday and picked up a few things. I probably stayed in the store for a good hour swatching this and that, covering myself in many different glitters, colors, blushes, eyeshadows, foundations, lip products, you name it. I went in there just to look but you know how that goes, (if you’re anything like me and love to shop) you always find something that will jump out at you to purchase. As always, the associates were friendly, asking if I needed help. (I like to shop on my own and pretty much be left alone since I’m in my own little world when I’m shopping) I was grateful none of them stuck around or tried interjecting about products I was looking at. Nothing makes me want to leave a product right where it is and leave a store…. than having pushy sales people bother me and try to “sell” me things. It just ruins my shopping experience. Bath & Body Works and Sephora I’m looking at you.
The ABH Glow Kit was something I debated buying for most of my time in the store yesterday. I mean, I didn’t need another highlight palette (or highlights for that matter) I have both the ABH MoonChild & Sweets palette, as well as many different individual highlighting products. These colors were just too beautiful to pass up! My husband was with me and even he commented the first time we passed by it, “That looks like something you’d like, you’re not gonna buy it?” (Well okay if you’re twisting my arm) No, but he did say he liked the colors and how sparkly it was. That poor guy has way too much knowledge about cosmetics, hair, fashion, and nails, being together for the last twelve years with me. He knew nothing when I met him (probably wishes he still did lol) Ah, I’ve taught him well, I guess. He’s great (now) at buying me surprise gifts. I digress, back to this palette… I had to buy it. I tried talking myself out of it, (really, I did) but in the end it came home with me. Can’t wait to play with it!!
Urban Decay eyeshadow- ‘Fireball’ I swatched this color in the store and it was so gorgeous! It’s described as a peach with pink shift. “A darkened, yellow gold that flashes to peachy-pink to warmer, pink-peach with a metallic sheen.” I’m very much into peach shades (I love metallics) so this definitely had my name on it. It’s a soft beautiful color. I love Urban Decay products and their shadows are some of the best around, so there was no second guessing this.
Lashes– A girl can never have too many pairs. These were actually repurchases. I love the Vegas Nay Grand Glamor lashes and buy these quite often. They create a very dramatic and glamorous look. The Ardell Wispies, of course, are a staple with me. Love wispies! I would have bought a few more pairs of the wispies, but I grabbed the last ones!
The ABH Contour Cream Kit (I got it in light since I haven’t been consistent with spray tanning now that summer ended, or at home tanning applications) I went back this morning to grab this. (That’s why it’s not included in the top haul pic. I took this in the car so I apologize for the not so great photos of it) I wanted to purchase this yesterday, but for some reason passed. Well it bugged me all night thinking about it and watching reviews on it… so I went back today and grabbed it. I’m really excited to play with this and see how I like it.
So that’s it! Nothing too big. I’m pretty happy with what I ended up buying, especially since I had no plans to buy anything.
Do you guys have any of these products or want to try them? If you do have them, how are you liking them so far? Let me know!
Thanks for reading!
