So, the shopping ban was over a few weeks ago and I did a little shopping. I was quite happy that the end of the ban coincided with the start of a 20% off coupon from ULTA. So, I went on a mini binge, I had to contain myself to just a few needed items. Actually, I was quite surprised at my restraint as well but, unfortunately, I am on a tight budget this month. Mainly staples.
Tarte Maracuja Oil
Not too sure what to do with this item. It says to put two drops on your face at night after cleansing and before moisturizers. Does that also mean before serums and after toners/softeners? And what exactly will it do?? I’ve only used it a few times and I have yet to see any effects. Really, I think I was just curious about this product and when it went on sale for $25 instead of the regular $45 I just scooped it up without really thinking, or researching the product.
Phytokarite Ultra Nourishing Mask
I haven’t opened this yet, but it looks nice and thick from the outside. I’m a total lush for thick, moisturizing hair masks and conditioners. Look at that ingredients list! I cannot wait to use it.
NYX Je Ne Sais Quoi eyeshadow and Blush In Rose Garden
I haven’t tried the blush just yet, but I am totally in love with the eyeshadow palette. I took this on a recent trip, along with my more expensive sets by Chanel and Estee Lauder and ended up using this exclusively for day and night looks. With the exception of frost bottom left whitish/silver colour. That one was a chalky hot mess. And I haven’t tried the black either, but in general I am loving this so far.
Here is the blush swatched and blended out. I am going to enjoy using this to add pop colour on my cheeks during the summer.
I bought the Boscia blotting papers so I can try them out this summer. I have really dry skin, but I do get a little shiny during the summer so I hope these come in handy. I have written about the Say-Yes-Carrots moisturizer many times before… I’m probably on about my 6th bottle!!
What about you, what have picked up lately? Did you pick up anything exciting with your 20% off coupon from Ulta??
Stay Blessed and thanks for stopping by.
All items were purchased with my own money.
