Ulta Haul

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another haul! I took a trip to Ulta the other week and I wanted to share with you all my goodies.

Check out the video!

I finally got on the crackle nail polish trend - on the left is an antique gold from Sally Hansen and on the right, a black from China Glaze.  It's kinda sad I'm just now on it now, because it's starting to get a little played out, lol.  But around normal people (i.e. non-bloggers/beauty junkies) it's still cool, ha!

I've always heard good things about this for helping shrink pimples and it seems to be working so far.
It's an interesting formula, the sediment settles to the bottom.  Don't shake the liquid.  Just dip a q-tip into it to get the milky, pinky stuff and dot it on affected spots.
I picked up these as new highlighters.  NYX Yellow Gold was recommended by Celebrity Makeup Artist Saisha Beecham as a great face highlighter.  I also picked up the champagne tone to mix with the yellow gold to make a nice browbone shimmer.
This has been on my to buy list for a long time.  I always use neutral toned primers on my clients.  This version, called Eden, combines color with the oil control properties of Urban Decay's original primer potion.
I finally caved in and bought the Naked Palette.  This one comes with a brush instead of the dual ended pencil.  To be honest, I'm not sold on this palette yet.  I'm still playing with it.
I saw this near the check-out and I thought it would be interesting to try on my older clients.  You're supposed to apply it, let it sit for 5 minutes.  Then wash it off and it temporarily freezes wrinkles.
From the video you know I've been on a hunt for a new shimmer browbone shade.  I love Urban Decay Blunt (left) on myself and decided to also pick up X as well.

Till next time, Ciao Bellas!

Great haul! I myself recently picked up UDPP Eden (but have yet to use it). I was wondering if I'd wasted my money, so I'm glad to hear that someone else likes it.

I have not seen the NYX highlighters before! I really like the brand and it's inexpensive! I can't wait to try them, and if they work I won't have to spend so much on moonbeam by benefit!

Great haul! I love UDPP Eden! It's my favorite. I've heard great things about that crackle too. Can't wait to see swatches on it. =)

Great Haul! love the crackle polishes I just found them as well, I got ink splatter, vintage violet and fractured foil.

Nice haul! I'm fairly happy I got one too. My Ulta MA told me that the reason UD was sold out on the Naked Palette all the time was that they had production problems w/the double-eye-pencil. They opted to replace it w/the brush instead to get the palette re-stocked faster.

And Sidecar has gotten many complaints by online beauty bloggers w/the glitter fallout, so you're not alone.

Let us know how the Naked pallet works out. I've heard great things about it, but the colors don't look all that versatile to me.
