So the other day I went into Ulta to buy ONE thing and came out with a whole bunch of goodies that are either new or out of my comfort zone. If you follow me on Instagram (you totally should) then you saw my Ulta bag and I promised to show you what I got. So keep reading to see it all!
Ulta Beauty Haul
Get ready for lots of pictures! :)
From Top to Bottom:
1 // Urban Decay AfterGlow Blush in Bittersweet: This blush is purple as you can see, but don’t let that scare you, it is stunning on the skin. It doesn’t come across nearly as purple on the cheeks as it does in the pain, and it’s just a wash of color. I love wearing this blush with a fresh face look, neutral glowy eye shadow, fresh skin, perfect pink lip, and this blush… it’s so pretty.
2 // Urban Decay AfterGlow Blush in Fetish: As you can tell, I really love these blushes! I talked about this blush in my Wedding Makeup series and to me this is just the perfect everyday blush.
3 // Urban Decay Revolution High-Color Lip Gloss in Scandal: I was on an Urban Decay kick that day… if you know me or have been reading my blog for a while you know lip gloss is just not my thing. I prefer matte lipstick pretty much all day everyday. But there was something about the display of these that really drew me in, and when I swatched it I really liked the pigmentation. These aren’t super sticky either which is a plus for me. I maybe slowly but surely branching out into the lip gloss world… only for summer though! :)
4 // Orly Nail Polish in Glow Stick and Hot Shot: Orly was having a buy 1 get 1 50% off sale so I took advantage. Glow Stick (neon yellow) is a polish I’ve been eyeing for about a year and just never bought it, I cannot wait to wear it. Hot Shot is a really pretty neon orange/pink. Both of these are perfect for the summer!
5 // Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara: This was a repurchase. I bought this mascara for the first time when it came out a couple years ago and I really loved it, but never repurchased it. If you haven’t tried it yet, you definitely should!
6 // Benefit’s They’re Real Push-Up Liner: I was looking for a good liquid liner and this is pretty intriguing because it’s gel so it will stay put without budging. It has a sponge tip applicator that is really angled allowing you to get really close to the lash line. It is very black as you can tell in the swatch.
7 // Becca Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle in Papaya/Topaz: This was my first Becca purchase, but I have always been drawn to any of her stuff with the word beach on it since I’m a beach bum. I swatched every one of these and the Papaya/Topaz was my absolute favorite. It is a bright tangerine red infused with golden bronze. These can be worn on your eyes, lips, or cheeks and they aren’t supposed to budge even in the water. So in my mind this is perfect for a pool day when you want to have a little makeup on. This is usually a product I would stay clear of, especially on my cheeks since I’m an oily girl, but I have worn it twice on my cheeks and I’m in love with it!
So that is everything I have picked up at Ulta recently. I went a little cray but honestly when does that not happen in Ulta.
Question: When I post a lot of pictures, would you rather them all be at the top like they are today, or broken up into categories with text in between?
When you go to Ulta do you stay on the high-end side, or drugstore?

The color of that lip gloss is SO pretty! I usually prefer lipstick or tinted chapstick. Gloss is just too sticky for me! Is this one any different? Also, to answer your question, I like the pictures to be broken up!
I know it is really pretty, which is what drew me in because I really don’t like lip gloss at all. This one isn’t as sticky to me as other brands. You may just have to try a sample of it at the store and see what you think before you buy it. Oh and thanks for answering my question, I never know what looks best, I love taking lots of pictures so when I do take a lot I will definitely break them up! :)
I’ve been totally in love with UD Bittersweet, but just haven’t picked it up yet. It’s honestly so gorgeous! I recently bought my first Becca products and am now absolutely in love with the brand. Great haul!
Oh girl you definitely need to try Bittersweet, it is seriously stunning!! I had always heard how great Becca products were and finally tried this one product and it’s amazing!! I will definitely be getting more things from Becca! :)
love those nail polish colors! awesome colors for the spring/summer!
Haha I know right, they are so bright and fun!!
Oh, i love that polish! I love fun colors. We have an Ulta down the road but I have never been inside because I know that my bank account would cry, haha. And my husband would too ;) I actually got that “they’re real” mascara for free a couple years ago and I used it on my wedding day, i loved it!
Oh girl you must have a lot of self control to not go into Ulta… sometimes I go once a week, it’s sad! I love They’re Real Mascara, it works wonders for length and volume!! :)
