Ulta Platinum sales are a dangerous thing. You keep telling yourself you’re saving money and not buying copious amounts of makeup, and then you get an email with no warning saying you have 20% off your entire purchase. I ended up being pretty good during the sale, only buying three things, and one was a skin care product I was almost out of out so I actually needed. And then when I thought my bank account was safe, my friend gave me a 20% off coupon for the grand opening of a new Ulta. That’s when the damage was done.
Tarte Tartelette in Bloom Eyeshadow Palette
This is a palette I’ve actually been wanting for awhile. I feel like even though this is an older palette, it’s getting a lot of popularity right now. I absolutely adore these shadows, I love how wearable all the colors in it are, there aren’t any ‘pops of color’ that will be untouched. The formula is also amazing!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadows in Fawn, Birkin, Warm Taupe, and Gleam
I’ve been wanting to try these forever, but at $12 a pop, they aren’t cheap at all. When you buy 4 together, the price drops to $10 each, and with my coupon they were only $8. Not amazing, but more doable. I haven’t used these yet because I don’t have a palette for them (Ulta was out of the ABH palettes and my Z palette is in the mail) but I have swatched them and the formula feels amazing!
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Naked
I mentioned this in my June Favorites post, so you can check that out here if you want to know more about it. Basically, this is a sheer pinky-nude lipstick that is perfect for everyday wear. It’s super comfortable and goes with everything!
BareMinerals Original Foundation
I’ve been wanting to try this out for awhile, because I hear it’s great for acne prone skin, and it’s super easy for everyday wear. I haven’t tried this out yet, but I’ll report back when I do!
IT Cosmetics 115 Foundation Brush
I bought this as a brush to go with the BareMinerals foundation. I wanted something that was super soft but not super expensive, and this fit the bill! This is probably one of the softest brushes I’ve ever used, so definitely check them out!
