My ulta.com haul

Who took advantage of Ulta’s 20% off sale (prestige brands included) last week? I did. Here’s my mini-haul:

My makeup weaknesses are neutral tone eyeshadow palettes and lipstick (I must have at least 100 lipsticks). These products are what I bought:

  • ColourPop Crème Lux Lipstick in LA Lady (rosy terracotta) – creme lipstick is a new offering from ColourPop
  • Flesh Fleshy Lips Lipstick in Drool (subdued watermelon) – Fleshy Lips Lipstick is a sheer “your lips but better” lipstick.  To read more about Flesh, visit Revlon to launch Flesh makeup at Ulta.
  • BareMinerals Gen Nude Neutral Eyeshadow Palette – part of BareMinerals’ extensive Gen Nude collection

Today’s makeup design #Beauty

Today, I’m wearing a long-sleeve tissue-weight tee in cream (a wardrobe staple) from American Apparel and a boyfriend cardigan in dark olive over the tee. I’m also wearing jeans with studs along the side seams and a chunky wood and metal necklace from Brighton (how MOR 🙂

Although it’s considered passé to match makeup shades to my outfit, that’s what I did. I used

– ULTA eye shadow in pale Camel for the base

– Laura Mercier eye shadow in Khaki (discontinued) for contouring. I’ve noticed that the eye designs in Robert Jones‘s book Makeup Makeovers invariably use taupe for contouring.

Shu Uemura eye shadow in M Olive 499 (discontinued), a golden olive, on the outer corner.

Again, I used Christian Siriano Silky Eyeshadow in Gilded Fierce for eyeliner and LashControl mascaras.

For my face and lips, I used Daniel Chinchilla Flawless Finish Liquid Foundation, Revlon ColorStay™ Mineral Blush in Honey, Pür Minerals lip liner in Natural Calcite to fill in the lips, and Life’s A Beach lip gloss from the Robert Jones Signature Collection for Three Custom Color Specialists.

The fine print: Representatives for Pür Minerals and LashControl provided me products for review. I paid for all other products out of pocket.
