(mini) ulta haul 1.27.15


Hey y’all! I made a quick hit at Ulta recently because I realized I have zero Nyx products, which maybe should be illegal. So I ran by and picked up some Nyx stuff as well as some random other things!

  • Nyx Matte Lipstick in Nude
  • Nyx Matte Lipstick in Sable — this is my FAVORITE new nude lip!
  • Revlon Color Burst Matte Balm in Elusive
  • Nyx “Dark Circle” Concealer
  • Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation
  • Bliss Facial in a Box: this little kit contains two facials, and was only $12! It contain’s the incredi-‘peel’, the triple oxygen energizing mask, and the ex-‘glow’-sion, all by bliss. I love having mini at-home spa nights, so I couldn’t help myself!

Have you tried any of these products? Do you have any recommendations for must-haves from Nyx Cosmetics?


bareminerals: blush & eyeshadow sets




For my Family Christmas, my cousins and I always do a really fun gift exchange. The limit is always $30. I really got away with some amazing stuff this year, so I thought I would share! Somehow one of my cousins made out with these two kits from Ulta’s Black Friday sale — one a blush kit, complete with mineral blush and a blush brush, and another an eyeshadow kit, with two eye shadows and an eyeshadow brush. What a steal at only $10 each! Unfortunately, I couldn’t find these kits online for sale anymore. However, I can say that if you’re considering purchasing these separately — GO for it! I’ve always loved BareMinerals, and these products did not disappoint. The eyeshadows were neutral enough for me to wear to work but I also could have layered on more of the darker shade for a night out.

Shown above are:

  • Blush: Strawberry Cream
  • Blush brush: Feather Light
  • Light eyeshadow: Toffee (PERFECT amount of sparkle for the holidays!)
  • Dark eyeshadow: Creme brûlée
  • Eyeshadow brush: Eye Defining
