Who loves Ulta? All Beauty Lovers raise their hands. I NEEDED new Fall Makeup to try, so I decided to head out to Ulta to add a few things to my Train Case. You'll love what I found on this mini makeup haul. I absolutely love Spring and Fall. But when it comes to makeup, Fall is my favorite. I can glow or keep it matte as well as wear vampy shades of lipsticks along with my gorgeous red tones. I've been looking forward to this time of year. I can't wait to throw on a pair of boots and a scarf with a lip to die for (Not literally...Lol).
I adore anywhere that has ALL types of beauty products. Ulta has everything from Drugstore brands to High-end products. They also carry skin care, hair care and other grooming products to keep your Slayage on point. As hard working ladies and entrepreneurs we need that. It's definitely a one-stop shop for beauty. Ulta Beauty also supports the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and that's definitely "A Gorgeous way to give back", as their new pink and white bags read.
I am a freelance makeup artist among other things and I absolutely LOVE makeup!!! I was trying to figure out what new shades of lipsticks I wanted to try for Fall. But of course you enter with one thing on your mind and you get distracted. LOL
"Lipstick is My Vice" - Urban Decay
I read about the Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks and OMG! I HAD to try a few. However, after swatching them in the store I could not decide on the three I really wanted to purchase. (Yes, I said three I put myself on a lipstick budget). I happened to look up and guess what I saw, They had a palette!!!!! Yes with 12 shades!!!! This is the Urban Decay Vice Blackmail Lipstick Palette! $35.00
I am definitely in love with this palette of lipsticks. I haven't tried them yet but the colors are gorgeous. I'm thinking of looks to do now. There are a few more shades that I want that aren't in this palette so I will have to go back to purchase.
From top left the colors are Sheer Shame, Firebird, Big Bang, Disobedient, EZ, 714
From bottom left the colors are Vanished, 1993, Ex-Girlfriend, Amulet, Conspiracy, Blackmail
New From Tarte
As I made my way to the next isle and came across this GORGEOUS, GORGEOUS...Tarteist Paint Palette Collector's Set! $49.00
This palette is so beautiful the colors and the packaging are Everything!
This is a great collection of Eyeshadows, Contour, Highlighter, Lip Gloss and Mascara! It gets no better than this. This set is even ideal for someone starting with makeup and wants something simple but Lux and all inclusive minus the foundation that is.
I also purchased one of the NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick however, I'm thinking about purchasing more soon and doing a post on just those! I'm so excited about that. There are so many colors that I'm in love with so that is something I'm going to do later.
Feeling and Looking your best go hand in hand. I definitely believe that when you look good and feel good about your appearance it makes you BEAM even brighter. Don't be ashamed to care for yourself. You have to dedicate to making yourself better in order to pour into others.
I'm not saying you should go and buy out Ulta. It all starts with self-love and thinking highly of yourself. If makeup isn't your thing that's fine but maintaining a well-groomed appearance is important when you're meeting new people in your business and during daily activities. I do believe in maintaining your appearance is necessary even if it's doing your own manicures and pedicure. Treating yourself to a signature lip color or even a fragrance goes a long way, those things should be done for YOU!
