July 2014 Ulta haul

Ulta haul
Lately I've been doing a bit of Ulta hauling since I now have 2 stores very close to me, as well as 2 stores in the next town near my parents house.  I've picked up a few things here and there so I'd love to share these and swatches of them for your viewing pleasure! Ulta had China Glaze 2 for $10, I picked up "It's a Trapeze" and "Turned Up Turquoise", both are beautiful colors that I can't wait to give them a try.  My next Ulta haul was made up of Clearance finds and I was pretty happy with the prices I paid and the $3.50 off $10 coupon.  My final Ulta haul of the month included 3 of the new L'Oreal quads(check back for swatches), a NYX concealer, and a Pixel eyeshadow since Chelsea Garay on Youtube raved about how beautiful it was (and it is) and 3 L'Oreal quads, because I couldn't just choose 1 of course during the 40% off sale. I love when Ulta has these sales because you can stock up on your favorites and try a couple of new things, Enjoy!

China Glaze "Turned Up Turquoise"
China Glaze "It's a Trap-eze"
CoverGirl Crump Crusher Mascara
Revlon Nail Polish "Beautiful"
Nivea Lip Butter "Caramel Cream Kiss"
Cargo Blu-Ray High Definition Pressed Powder
OPI Mariah Carey collection minis
L'Oreal Quad "Rose Nude"
L'Oreal Quad "Perpetual Nude"
L'Oreal Quad "Treasured Bronze"
NYX Concealer "Glow"
Pixel Single Eyeshadow "Endearing"

I picked up all of these goodies from Ulta with good deals on a couple of different trips, so if you have your eye on something in particular I would add it to your list and wait for an awesome sale!

Ulta Jane Eyeshadow Haul, Swatch, & Review

Over the Summer I finally picked up some goodies that had been on my list for a while.  I've had my eyes on these for a while but when the beautiful and wonderful "Chesea Garay" on Youtube showed how amazing these were I knew I needed them.  The swatches she showed of the shades she owned were enough to make me run to the store more than once during the Buy One Get One 50% off sale and I used an Ulta coupon which ended being around $9 for 2 and they are $8 normally.  The shades I chose were Eclipse, Lotus, Passionflower, Dawn, Rosy Posy, and Clay; they all blend beautifully and the packaging and designs on the actualy shadow are cute and dainty.  Enjoy the swatches below!

Eclipse, Lotus, Passionflower, Dawn, Rosy Posy, Clay

Thanks for checking out my post and swatches on these beautiful shadows.

Ipsy September 2014 "Street Style"

Hi Guys!

Today I'd like to share my Ipsy bag for September, I was super excited for this bag to come since it had a couple of items that I'd been wanting to try.  I always have a sneak peek at my bag online before it comes because I just can't wait! If you follow my blog you know how much I enjoy trying out new polishes and how rare it is for me not to have tried a brand.  Pacifica is a brand that I've only enjoyed their body lotions and skincare products but i enjoy what they're made of and how fabulous they work and smell, I've tried the Pacifica Luminizing Body Butter & Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Body Butter.  I've also tried a product from the Nourish Organic (Nourish Organic Face Lotion) and while it wasn't my favorite, I didn't hate it. Below are swatches of my bag this month, check back for swatches of the nail polish!

My bag this month:
Nourish Organic "Moisturizing Cream Face Cleanser"
Pacifica 7 Free Nail Polish ""
Alterna Haircare "Caviar CC Cream 10-in-1 Complete Correction"
