This is what happens when I take a day off work and my husband goes out of town. I didn’t leave the house for 3 days straight and I spent it on the couch watching Investigation Discovery and online shopping. I actually have zero shame because sometimes you need some time for yourself, which includes buying a bunch of things you don’t actually need…..
You probably want to grab a drink…. and don’t go online shopping without supervision!
Ulta Haul #1 – I hadn’t originally planned to purchase the IT Cosmetics CC Cream since the tube I have is still going strong, but when I saw that it came with the #101 Airbrush Blurring Foundation Brush that retails on its own for $24 I couldn’t pass it up. I decided to grab the shade Light, which is actually my summer shade. Fair is a perfect match for me but the shade range is very slim – to me Light is more of a medium.
Anyway…. The Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara, Butter London Plush Rush Plumping Lip Gloss, Its a 10 Miracle Styling Potion, and BareMinerals Skinlongevity Vital Power Infusion Serum were all free with purchase! Plus I used my 20% off coupon and some Ulta Points I had save up. I paid $15 for all of this!
Ulta Haul #2 – The next day I decided to place another order because I really wanted to try out the Makeup Revolution Concealers. There weren’t many shades left but I went with c3 and c5 which are both pretty decent matches for me.
I also decided to try out some of the My Must Have singles from Essence. I grabbed the bronzing powder, two satin bronzers in Coral Dream and Rosey Glow, as well as an eye shadow in Go Goldie which looks like a gorgeous highlight! I also used the 20% off coupon on the Ulta app to save a few bucks on this order as well.
Sephora – I was in desperate need to replace my beloved belief Aqua Bomb Moisturizer, so when I saw that I could also grab a mini free with a $25 I knew it was time to place an order. I also grabbed a Sephora Charcoal Micellar Cleansing Water and a 100 point perk of the Laura Mercier Radiance Foundation Primer.
Amazon – I have a love/ hate relationship with Amazon. I hate that I buy so many things but I love that I don’t have to leave my house and its delivered in two days. I needed dry shampoo and saw that this one was on sale, so I figured I’d give it a try. I also grabbed the Ardell Brow Building Fiber Gel because I’ve been liking a bushier brow but I don’t actually have a lot of brow to work with (I’m attempting to grow them out….stupid teenage/ college waxing). At the last minute I decided I wanted to try the Maybelline Fit Me Dewy & Smooth in 110. I love the Matte & Poreless but my skin has gone from an oil slick to the Sahara Desert over the past few months. My new skincare routine and the ridiculously frigid weather have really been drying me out. Needless to say I have been steering clear of my beloved matte foundations. We’ll see how this one goes.
Juvia’s Place – Last but certainly not least I finally got my grubby hands on the Nubian Palette. I have been wanting to try Juvia’s Place shadows so when I saw an email for 40%, how was I suppose to turn it down!? The Nubian palette was on sale from $28 down to $19, plus I got the 40% off on top of that. I paid less than $15 total with shipping!! Only a crazy person would have turned down that deal!
I should probably put myself on a no-buy for the rest of February!
Have you tried any of these? Is there a certain product you’d like to see a review on? Have you made any purchases lately that you didn’t need?
