Hey guys! Thanks for visiting my page 😊 I recently took a trip to Ulta, without really knowing what I wanted to get, so naturally I ended up with more than I was expecting to lol I was offered a couple of samples of new products, the Clinique 10 Days to Great Skin products which I haven’t tried out yet since I haven’t really been having much time in the morning to do it, but once I do I’ll most likely be sharing my results with you guys! And the other sample I got was the Clinique High Impact Lash Elevating mascara. I also haven’t tried this one out yet because I’m trying to finish up the mascara I’ve got now and want to do a review with both of these samples together. So be on the lookout for that!
The products I will be sharing a little about with you guys is the Urban Decay Vice lipstick, Sweet Peach Palette, Tarte Blush & Glow Blush and Highlighter, and the OGX Locking + Coconut Curls Mousse!
This lipstick is a little on the pricey side, but imo it’s SO worth it. Honestly I don’t usually go for shades like this, it has sort of a coppery tone to it. I usually stick with nude or peachish tones, or just lip gloss/balm. But I’m so so glad I tried this one. I’m definitely all for trying new things with makeup because you never know, you might end up finding your new favorite thing! This shade actually goes really well with the Sweet Peach Palette too. At the end of my trip I had to decide between this lipstick and another brand and when I swatched both of them side by side, this one was a winner all the way. Not only is the color rich, but it glides on SO smoothly, it’s not so dry like you get with a lot of lipsticks.
In the picture above, I experienced a bit with the Sweet Peach Palette and the Vice lipstick. I know it’s hard to tell both because of the terrible lighting 🙄 (Working on it!) But you can kinda see the peachy tones from the Sweet Peach Palette. I was actually thinking of doing a makeup tutorial for this once I get my room set up to do videos. So hopefully you’ll be able to see the look a little better then. But oh man! Not only is the container itself adorable and perfect for the summer, but the makeup literally smells like sweet peaches. As soon as you open the container, you get a whiff of it and it’s just amazing. They’ve some beautiful shades to choose from, and there’s so many looks you can go for with just this one Palette! They actually have 18 shades ranging from Peachy pinks to corals to bronzes to purples. I just love everything about this Palette!
Tarte Blush and Glow ($30)
As you can see, the packaging for this is SO cute. It’s pretty much what drew me to it in the first place. I love anything gold and/or pink so I had to get it haha. It also smells really nice which I’m not used to with blushes and highlighters so that was a nice plus! I love the shade of the blush. It looks a little more natural rather than being super vibrant and overly noticeable. But it gives a nice healthy look to your skin! And with this highlighter added to it, you’ll have a really beautiful glow. Ever since I got this, I’ve been using it every day. I can’t get enough of it!
I was debating whether I should even get this product because my hair can be difficult to manage sometimes. I’ve tried all kinds of mousses, gels, hairsprays and none of them have been able to give my hair the right texture that I want. I used to have super curly hair, but as I’ve gotten older it has more of a wave. But either way, it gets very frizzy and out of control if I don’t use one of these products. Many of the mousses I’ve used have made my hair too crunchy or wet-looking, so I really was a bit hesitant on this one. But I figured..eh why not, it’s a cute bottle so at least there’s that haha. But you guys, wow does this stuff really work! It’s a very creamy mousse, so the consistency is really nice, it holds your curls or waves like it promises and it doesn’t get crunchy or stay looking wet. My hair was still pretty dang smooth after it dried! Oh and bonus, it smells like coconuty goodness.
Well that’s all I have for you guys today. I really hope you enjoyed this little mini Haul. Let me know your thoughts and/or questions in the comments! Have a beautiful day 😊😘
