Sephora & Ulta Haul!

Hello all!! I have a confession.  I play favorites.  Always have.  Favorite teachers, favorite cousins, favorite friends, and now favorite Sephora, and favorite Ulta.  An Ulta opened up right in my itty bitty hometown of Port Chester NY, and OH MAN have I had to resist doing some serious damage there.  Especially since it opened right at the time where I got my Sephora VIB 20% off coupons.

I did some hauling.

I had to.

The makeup artist at ULTA was soooo nice (i cant remember her name for the life of me..), and since it's new still, everything is fully stocked.

 Anyway, here is my Sephora VIB haul, and Ulta haul.

This is my Sephora VIB haul.  I paid for the Naked 2 palette (I cant wait to start playing with this!), and then picked up the NARS 500pt perk.  I must say. for my first point perk redemption I wasn't wowed . The orgasm blush was suuupper tiny! It'll end up going to a cousin.  Also the face primer is so small, it'll only cover one cheek.  I am however excited to try out the eyeshadow primer, and the velvet gloss lip pencil.  The pencil came in New Lover, which is a glittery strawberry pink, and its .08oz. so its pretty much full size (full size is .09oz). 

This is my Ulta haul.  Much smaller.  I picked up my very first Nyx product!  Its a jumbo eye pencil in french fries.  I've heard so many good things about these pencils, I was exctied to try it out.  Plus for $5 how can you not be tempted?  I also picked up NYX Nude Matte Shadow in Betrayal which is a nice dark brown.  I bought it to use with my new Ecotools smudge eyeliner brush.  As you can see , I've already started using this.  I use it to line my lower lash line, and it works awesomely! (awesomely is a word now ;)

Not sure if I'll do a full review on the Naked Palette since there are so many out there already, but I will on the Nars eyeshadow primer, ecotools brush..etc.

Have any of you hauled recently? Anything from Ulta  or Nyx I should check out ?

  1. OMG!!! Love it! Love the shades. I usually prefer these kinds of shades for they look light and natural. Got to include the blush and palette in my wishlist.

    1. Thank you so much!! I tend to go for lighter shades since my hair and eyes are so dark (and also my glasses are dark as well), that I dont want to have dark dark shadow on. I've started playing with the naked palette, and I do like the shades (dam the glitter tho!)

  2. Great haul!!!!!!!!
