Ulta Contour Kit Review

Ulta Contour Kit + Striking Matte Lip Cream

When the Anastasia Contour Kits first came out tons of people were all over social media raving about them as if they were the best thing since sliced bread. Eventually, I got sucked into the hype and picked up the powder Contour Kit in Tan to Deep only to discover that it was more of a bronzing palette than a contour kit that wasn’t all that spectacular for the $40 price tag. On the flip side, I’ve heard some really good things about the Ulta Contour Kit from some of my favorite makeup buddies on Instagram so I decided to finally grab it when Ulta was giving out those amazing makeup bags filled with Ulta Beauty Collection goodies as a free gift. Who doesn’t like free gifts and contour kits?

NYX Embellishment Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick Review

NYX Embellishment Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick

Drugstore launches are always a pain in my behind and the NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick launch was no different. I probably hit 6 different stores when word got out that they were finally available at CVS only to come up empty handed each time. After the Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks launched at Ulta, I breathed a sigh of relief and thought to myself, “These damn lipsticks better be worth it!”

Spoiler alert: They’re not too shabby. The NYX Lip Lingerie Lipsticks are sultry, edgy nudes that are rather unique for a drugstore brand to whip up. It kinda makes sense now why they’re so popular and keep selling out so quickly at Ulta. The Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks are some pretty hot nudes!
