More Makeup Revolution Goodies!

Makeup Revolution Golden Sugar 2 Rose Gold Ultra Blush Palette, Blush Queen Palette, Didn't I Tell You? Salvation Intense Lip Lacquer, Nothing Like Anything Salvation Intense Lip Lacquer, Gave You All My Love Salvation Intense Lip Lacquer, Radiant Lights Vivid Baked Highlighter

Love makeup but hate paying the big bucks for the good stuff? Then you need to check out Makeup Revolution at Ulta because their products are amazing quality at super affordable prices. With blushes and highlighters at just $6 and lipsticks and glosses at $3 it can be hard to believe that it’s all good quality. But trust me. Makeup Revolution is all good! I’ve been wearing my Golden Lights Vivid Baked Highlighter and Nude Matte Blush daily since I picked them up during the BOGO sale at Ulta and I couldn’t be more impressed with the quality of them. In fact, I love them so much that I doubled back and picked up a handful more Makeup Revolution while they were still on sale. There was no way I could resist grabbing more when the quality and the prices are this good. It’s only right!


New ColourPop Ultra Satin Lipsticks!

ColourPop Frick n Frack, Mess Around, So Wavy Ultra Satin Lipsticks

I keep telling myself I’m going to hold off on buying more lipsticks (that I certainly don’t need) but leave it to ColourPop to call my bluff every time. I’m still recovering from snatching up quite a few of Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks that are now half off but ColourPop decided to have a flash sale right after that was too good to pass up. Everything under $10 plus 20% off? It would be a crime if I didn’t place an order! So I did what was right and added a 3 of the new Ultra Satin Lipsticks (along with other things ?) to my cart so I could finally get my hands on those beauties.


New ColourPop Ultra Matte Lipsticks!

ColourPop Cheap Thrills, Are N Be, Privacy Please Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

A girl can never have too many liquid lipsticks, right? Of course not! Liquid lipstick is life these days. That’s why so many brands are finally coming out with them and other brands are expanding their lines left and right. ColourPop is all about that liquid lipstick life so it’s only right that they’ve added yet another batch of new shades to their Ultra Matte Lipstick lineup. Just like it’s only right that I add a few of them to my collection because I just love ColourPop’s Ultra Matte Lipsticks and all of the creative colors they come up with at such an amazing price.


Makeup Revolution is BOGO Half Off at Ulta!

Makeup Revolution BOGO Half Off at Ulta

The only thing better than good quality drugstore makeup is good quality drugstore makeup that’s on sale. Don’t you agree?? London based Makeup Revolution has been gaining a lot of popularity here in the states that has recently landed them a spot in Ulta. I’ve been eyeing Makeup Revolution for a little while now after reading many good reviews and seeing tons of makeup porn and swatches on Instagram. So I jumped on the opportunity to try out a few products while Makeup Revolution is now buy one get one half off at Ulta. Everything is under $10 which is already super affordable but couple that with the fact that you can grab another product for half off and use Ulta’s $3.50 off coupon and you’ve got yourself a damn good deal!


MAC Chris Chang Collection Haul & Swatches

MAC Plum Princess Lipstick, Royal Woo Eyeshadow, Rich Coral Cream Colour Base

Before I started exploring other brands I used to be a huge MAC junkie. I’m talking set an alarm on my phone for damn near every collection kinda junkie. My obsession was pretty hardcore. Since I’ve ventured out to other amazing brands (like Too Faced) I’ve learned that MAC isn’t the end all be all when it comes to good makeup at a decent price. However, MAC still knows a thing or two about putting together a dope makeup collection with crazy beautiful special packaging. I no longer pick up a thing or two (or three) from almost every MAC collection like I used to but I just couldn’t help myself when the limited edition Chris Chang Collection released online with its bold, colorful special packaging and bright, fun colors. You know I couldn’t resist that!


Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks Now Half Off!

Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks

Ready to go lipstick crazy? You better be! Urban Decay recently marked down their Revolution Lipsticks from $22 to $11. That’s right. Half off! And no this isn’t just some exclusive online deal. You can pick up any shade of Revolution Lipstick you please from Sheer to Matte at any location for just $11. It seems the Revolution Lipsticks first went on sale at Ulta but other retailers like Macy’s and Sephora have jumped on board too. Which is wonderful news because the Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks are some of the best lipsticks I’ve ever tried. They’re smooth, creamy, pigmented and most of them last a rather long time.

PUR Minerals Sun-Kissed Glow Strobe Palette Swatches

PUR Minerals Sun-Kissed Glow Strobe Palette

One of the many good things about working at Ulta is that I get to work with brands that have never crossed my mind previously. PUR Minerals has been around for quite a few years but I’ve never paid them much attention because none of their products seemed to catch my attention. It wasn’t until PUR came out with their new cream highlighting palettes that I finally caught on to the magic of PUR and decided to give them a try. You know I can’t resist a good highlight!


Wet n Wild Summer 2016 Collection Haul & Swatches

Wet n Wild Summer 2016 Collection

I usually have a love/hate relationship when it comes to limited edition drugstore collections because they’re often very enticing but oh so hard to find. However, it’s all love this time around when it comes to the new limited edition Wet n Wild Summer 2016 Collection. This collection turned out to be beautiful and easy to find. Win, win! I spotted a display at the first Walgreens I went to and immediately snatched up both of the highlighting powders and one of the liquid lipsticks. Part of me is dying to go back and grab more because the liquid lipsticks and cream highlighter sticks are still calling my name. The entire display was just so pretty!

How Cute Are These Makeup Bags?!

Walgreens Makeup Pouch Summer 2016

If you’re a makeup junkie like me then you probably like to carry around a handful of makeup in your purse at any given time. A million different glosses and lipsticks. Pressed Powder. Setting spray and lip balm here and there. That’s just how we roll! I used to just toss makeup in my bag in go way back when but now I prefer my purse to be a little more organized (or at least look the part) so I’ve developed a thing for makeup bags. Cute makeup bags to be precise. ‘Cause you can’t put pretty lipsticks and beat face essentials in a basic looking bag. No ma’am!

Thanks to AshBeautyBlog on Instagram, I was able to find the most adorable makeup bags at Walgreens that are pretty much dupes for the Breakups to Makeup bags at Sephora. I’ve yet to see the Breakups to Makeup bags in person so I can’t really comment on how the quality compares but what I can say is that these beauties are super cute, very spacious and crazy affordable.


LORAC Alter Ego Lipgloss Haul & Swatches

Lorac Vixen, Free Spirit, Secret Agent, CEO, Duchess Alter Ego Lip Gloss

We all know that I’m more of a lipstick girl but when Ulta slashed the price of the LORAC Alter Ego Glosses in half from $16 to $8 I was all over it. How could a girl resist $8 Prestige lip gloss?! LORAC makes some really great quality products that I think are often overlooked because they don’t have the insane cult following like Anastasia Beverly Hills or Tarte. Which is madness because the Pro Palettes alone deserves all the praise in the world. They’re seriously that good!
