If there’s one time of year where I’m likely to lose all control it’s hands down Black Friday. It’s virtually impossible for me to have any self control when there’s sales everywhere. At first, I thought I’d manage to be a good girl because nothing was really catching my eye.
“I can do this!”
Once Black Friday finally arrived, I popped a single Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick into my cart and thought I would call it a day. “I don’t need any of those door busters from work,” I kept telling myself. Then I clocked in and started feeling that Black Friday spirit. Immediately, I began plotting on like 5 sets but I managed to talk myself down to just 2 with a bonus goodie.
The bonus goodie turned out to be the Stila Eternal Love Liquid Lipstick Set. There were only 2 left in the store and I really wanted to try Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks so I had to go for it. The Eternal Love set contains 3 deluxe sized liquid lipsticks for $20. It’s a tiny but cute set that I knew I was going to love after swatching. The colors are so pretty!
Lord knows I don’t need another primer, however, I couldn’t resist grabbing at least one of the Urban Decay Complexion Primer Potions that were half off for Black Friday. My skin is more on the dry side and has a tendency to get dull this time of year so I went with the Brightening & Tightening formula. It’s designed to moisturize and tighten dull, dry skin with fine lines. Prior to the sale, I’d never tried any of UD’s face primers but I was blown away when I tried the Brightening & Tightening Complexion Primer Potion on the back of my hand. It felt so good and really smoothed my skin. Part of me wishes I would have gotten another as a backup because I have a feeling this may become a favorite.
I’ve slowly been falling in love with more products from my Murad Environmental Shield kit so I was pumped to see a mini one included as a door buster this year at Ulta. The Essential-C Cleanser has become one of my holy grail morning cleansers as it’s incredibly refreshing and makes my face feel squeaky clean. Plus, it’s loaded with antioxidants and skin brightening goodies that’s been helping to clear up my dark spots. The set also includes a deluxe mini of the Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lighting Serum. I haven’t tried it just yet but if it’s as good as the moisturizer and eye cream are turning out to be then it’s going to be good!
Did you grab anything from Ulta this Black Friday?
