Pucker Up with the Butter London Fancyfull Lippy Liquid Lipstick Set

Butter London Fancyfull Lippy Liquid Lipstick Set Swatches on Dark Skin Tickled Pink, Dahling, Spiked Cocoa, Mulled Wine

Whether you’ve managed to be a responsible spender all year or you hauled it all (like me) everyone deserves to cut loose a little during the holiday. We work a little harder. Make a little extra money. So why not treat ourselves just a tiny bit more here and there? Yeah, girl, give in to this peer pressure. ‘Cause you know I’m going to push you to buy it all this holiday season with no shame! This is the perfect time of year to indulge because you get a really great deal or lots of variety at a good price.

Tarte’s Kissing Squad Lip Sculptor Quad is a Steal! 

Tarte Kissing Squad Lip Sculptor Squad Lipstick and Gloss Set Swatches on Dark Skin

Liquid lipsticks are life. True enough. But I can’t act like juicy, glossy poppin’ lips aren’t the move all year round! Most times, I do like to gravitate towards mattes throughout fall and winter but mattes can be a little drying. And when you’re talking to people nonstop for hours a day matte lips aren’t always ideal. They start to crack, peel and get all dry. Then before you know it, you’re lips are pretty much hanging off your face and you have no idea how bad it is until you pass a mirror. Tragic.

Completely Fangirling Over the ColourPop x Hello Kitty Collection 

ColourPop x Hello Kitty Collection Swatches on Dark Skin School is Fun Super Shock Cheek, Super Cute Ultra Glossy Lip, Lock Diary Ultra Matte Lip, Tiny Chum Ultra Satin Lip, Date Mate Lippie Stix, Konnichiwa Lippie Stix

Is anyone else over 25 still obsessed with Hello Kitty? Don’t be ashamed, girl. You’re in good company! I still love me some Hello Kitty and I jump (and scream) at the chance to add even more of her to my collection in anyway possible. From undies to seat covers, my Hello Kitty addiction leads me to buy pretty much anything with her cute little face on it. And that includes the new ColourPop x Hello Kitty Collection celebrating the iconic cat’s birthday on November 1st.

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Collection is Delightfully Adorable

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Copper Compact Swatches on Dark Skin

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! MAC hasn’t exactly wowed me too much during holiday for the last couple years but this year I was all in. MAC really came through with the Nutcracker Sweet Collection! The packaging is beautiful and the colors are perfect for the season. I just couldn’t help myself.

I went from, “I’m just getting this compact I don’t really need.”

Then soon to, “Okay I could use a few more things from this collection.”

Ulta Holiday Haul

Butter London Fancy-full Lippy Liquid Lipstick Collection, Stila Stay All Day Sparkle All Night Lipstick Set, Smashbox L.A. Lights Palette, LORAC Mega Pro 3 Palette, Tarte The Kissing Squad Lip Sculptor Quad, Too Faced Grand Care Hotel

There’s a ton of reasons to make all of your beauty purchases at Ulta but the best one is the rewards program. Hands down! Racking up points at Ulta doesn’t just get you deluxe samples or impossibly hard to get mega sets. Shade but no shade. Sorry Sephora. I’ma let you finish but Ulta has the best rewards program around! Instead of getting deluxe samples of goodies you’d essentially receive for free elsewhere Ulta rewards you with dollars off your next purchase. The more points you have the better!

I’ve been spending up a storm over the last few months at Ulta but it’s all paid off because I was able to score almost all of the new limited edition holiday sets and palettes on my list without breaking the bank. I let my points stack up to 2,300 and redeemed them for $133 off. Talk about win! I couldn’t wait to grab a grey bag and fill it up with my top holiday picks so far this year.

I’m Kinda Digging Makeup Revolution..

Makeup Revolution Rock on World Vivid Baked Bronzer, Make Me Tonight Amazing Lipstick, Enchant Amazing Lipstick, 100% Vamp Amazing Lipstick

When you’re constantly being bombarded with pretty images of new releases and bomb new collections from uber popular brands it can be hard to see the beauty in other brands. It literally took me years to wean myself off MAC and now my eyes are open to the endless world of wonderful makeup brands out there that don’t always get a ton of love. Like Makeup Revolution. Makeup Revolution is probably more popular in it’s hometown of London but over the pond it’s just starting to get a little shine thanks to the geniuses at Ulta who exclusively launched the line in stores here in the US. Good move, Ulta!

Now we aren’t forced to order Makeup Revolution goodies online and then wait for them to cross the 7 seas to revel in its affordable goodness. You can simply waltz in Ulta, grab a palette or lipstick off the shelf and then be on your merry way without spending all your coins. Doesn’t that sound like a dream come true?

Still NYX Haulin’!

NYX Ruffle Trim Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick, Club Hopper Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick, Downtown Beauty Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick, NYX Push Up Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick, NYX Classic Tan #NoFilter Finishing Powder, NYX Breakup Plush Gel Lipstick

When you find good makeup that’s already pretty cheap and on sale what do you do? Buy it all! Almost everything NYX offers is under 20 bucks so coming across a buy 2 get 1 free sale is dangerous. I got so excited at Ulta that my mind was telling, “Buy it all. Buy everything you want today, Fancie. Do it!” So I did pretty much that. Even after hauling a handful of goodies earlier, I still had a little haul left in me and a few more things to get. Damn you good sales!

Marvel in the Works of Tarte Holiday Collection at Ulta!

Tarte Limitless Lippies Deluxe Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint Set

Normally when October rolls in, I’m thinking of costumes I can slip into and pass as a teenager so I can go trick or treating one last time. I’m in my mid-20s but I could easily pass for a highschooler looking to get her trick or treat kicks off for the last time. Call me crazy but I’d do anything for free candy. Especially Reese cups.

This year, my mind is juggling how to finagle trick or treating one last time and trying to balance all these holiday collections that are coming so fast that my head is spinning like the exorcist. One of the first holiday collections to pop up at Ulta is Tarte’s limited edition Works of Tarte lineup. It includes both deluxe and full sized value sets that’ll have you knocking on your neighbors’ doors for money instead of candy for Halloween.

Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Haul: Day 20

Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner, Too Faced La Matte Color Drenched Matte Lipstick in Troublemaker and Man-eater

No matter how much you love makeup or how much makeup you own there’s always that one signature look you regularly rock. For me, it’s a killer wing, falsies and a bold lip. That’s my go to pretty much everyday or whenever I’m in a rush and don’t have time to fuss with blending 5 eyeshadows or highlighting and contouring. I suppose that’s why I ended up indulging in both of the beauty steals on Day 20 of Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty. Day 20 was all about wings and a poppin’ lip and that’s all me!

Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Haul: Day 6

Tarte The Lip Sculptor Lipstick & Lip Gloss in Sass, Intoxicating and Rogue

Just when you thought you’ve seen the last of my Ulta 21 Days of Beauty hauls I unleash more. Don’t you just love it?? I wasn’t kidding at all when I told you guys that Ulta had me hooked almost everyday for the entire event. There were so many great beauty steals this time around that had me mapping out a budget and whipping out my trusty pink highlighter to strategize. It got real!

There were a few things here and there that I wasn’t quite interested in at first but there a lot more beauty steals that I knew I was going to end up indulging in. Like the Tarte Double Duty Beauty Lip Sculptor Lipstick & Lip Gloss that went on sale for half off on Day 6. For just $12, you could grab up to 2 (or more if you cheat) of Tarte’s creamy, buttery smooth Lip Sculptor Lipstick & Lip Gloss to tickle your fancy.
