Ulta Haul

My guiltiest pleasure, besides ice cream, would have to be Ulta. I guess because I can sit in there for hours and just look around, try new things, get some great deals and just have me time. J

I stopped in just to look around with a friend, who doesn’t really wear makeup so I wanted to show her some inexpensive ways to wear colors. I had fun showing her and telling her some tips and tricks I’ve learned from some of you AMAZING people. She even let me do her eyes for her because she wasn’t sure, but of course I forgot to take pictures. She thought it looked nice and thought you had to wear a lot of make up to pull off colors. At the end of this post you will also see how we ended the night.

I've been wanting to try the Revlon Just Bitten lip stains for a while, so I finally bought them. I got them in "Flame" and "Victorian". They were on sale for 2 for $12, normally $8.99 each.

Then I got a few items off of my wish list.

I got two nail polishes from Essie, "Smooth Sailing" and "Braziliant". Not on sale, $8 each.

Then over to NYX I went, and boy did I go crazy LOL! All NYX products were buy one, get one 1/2 off.
I got two new lip sticks in "Spellbound" and "Gem" - these I got for $2.99 each (after sale).
I got three new Mega Shine Lip Glosses in "French Kiss", "LaLa", and "Perfect" - got these for $4.12 each (after sale).
I got three new Soft Matte Lip Creams in "Tokyo", "San Paulo", and "Istanbul" I wish I would have been paying more attention when I was putting these into my basket and when I was checking out because "Tokyo" and "Istanbul" look almost identical, but i haven't swatched yet - got these for $4.12 each (after sale).

I had a coupon for $1 Nicole by OPI and Ulta had these on sale for $5.99, so I just had to get one. I thought this pink was really pretty. It might be hard to tell but it is iridescent looking (at least in the bottle it does).

Ulta is running a promotion "Smashbox Lip Enhansing Gloss Duo" in shades "Lust" and "Couture" for only $10.

I also found this AWESOME Physicians Formula BONUS pack that includes both a bronzer and blush for $13.49 (normally the bronzer is $13.49 at Ulta) and I have a $1 off coupon.

For some reason my picture of my Navy Shatter by OPI didn't turn out, but I am excited to say that I got one of the three colors from the blues collection. I REALLY want turquoise, but they didn't have it and I was still really excited to get the Navy. They had the red, but I'm not a big fan of red so I decided to pass on this one.

Well that is all for my weekend haul! Did you go shopping, if so what did you get? What is your favorite guilty pleasure?

However, my day didn't end at Ulta. After a whole day of shopping we went and had some margaritas. I guess I still had The Body Shop on my mind because I got the Strawberry Mango Margarita.

Hope everyone is have a fabulous day!!

awesome haul! I would love too see some swatches of all the lip products especially the revlon just bitten =) I have been eyeing those but don't know which ones too get! I think the happy booster blushes are so cute but don't want too pay full price! you got an awesome deal!

I will do swatches on all of them and even review some products. Just an FYI if you have a CVS near you they are $12.99, this week they are running a sale for $3 off and in the sunday paper there was a $1 off coupon so you could get 1 for $8.99. Not the greatest deal, but still a good deal. Or you could see if your Ulta has the bonus pack and use the $1 off coupon plus a Ulta $3.50 off $10 or more and get both for $8.99.
