Being back in the States, I've got the luxury of shopping at Ulta Beauty. After seven months of having not set foot in a beauty store of any sort, I went in and went a slight bit crazy.
I got a couple of essentials, a few new things for spring/summer, and one bigger splurge.
The first thing that I wanted to pick up where a few lippies from NYX. I had went in with intent of getting a couple of the new macaron lipsticks, but they hadn't quite gotten them in stock. Instead, I got a few fuchsia goodies from various collections. I also couldn't resist picking up a few of my favorite drugstore eyeshadow trios and two twin packs of lashes. I've been wanting to see what all of the hype was about, so I got two travel size pouches of the Macadamia Oil masque.
My splurge of the trip was the LORAC Unzipped palette. I absolutely love my LORAC Pro palette, so I couldn't resist to get this beauty. The texture of these shadows are incredible, and the rosy neutrals are lovely.
This was the damage done. I guess it could have been worse, but I tried to control myself a bit. ;)
I absolutely adore Almay's trios. They're so smooth and pigmented. They're the best drugstore eyeshadows I've tried thus far. The eylure eyelashes are incredible! I'm not a big eyelash wearer, so these are perfect. They are so natural!
I'm most excited about my palette, the lashes, Too Faced Melted liquid lipstick, and the NYX lipstick. Obviously I'm into bright lips right now.
If you'd like any in depth reviews, let me know! I have a couple already planned.
Now that I'm back in the States and have a lot of free time on my hands, I plan on keeping up with this blog a lot more. I've gotten so many new products since I've been home the past three weeks. I can't wait to share them all with you!
