Oh My God, ANOTHER Ulta Haul Because I Shop Too Much
I went to Ulta. Again. I went to pick up a new self tanner to try since the last one was awful (more on that in an upcoming post) and I ended up getting more, including four lipsticks, despite the fact that my lipstick drawer is overflowing. I would say I have a problem, but I'm not hurting anybody, and it's my money to spend how I like, so I don't feel a huge need to justify it. Without further ado, here is the haul!
This is the main reason I went to Ulta - the Nivea Sun-Kissed Radiance Gradual Tanner and Body Lotion for fair to medium skin. I've heard mixed reviews on this, but since I love every other Nivea product I've ever tried, I decided to give it a go. I've used it twice so far and I don't see anything yet, but I wasn't expecting to until day 3 or 4 anyways. I'll post a review once I've tried it out thoroughly.
Next I got the NYX HD Studio Finishing Powder, since if I'm going to be self tanning I'll need a powder that matches me when I'm darker, and I don't want to be mixing different powders when I'm in between, so I got a translucent one. I have yet to try it out but I will probably post a review once I have.
I also bought this foundation to mix with my normal foundation when I'm tan to get the right shade. I went a few shades darker so that I for sure have a dark enough color. If it's too dark, I can just mix more of my lighter foundation with it and get the perfect shade.
The last non-lip product I got was another Essence eyebrow pencil in Blonde. I have plenty of my other one left, but I want to have an extra one just in case.
I love my other Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick in the shade In Love With Ginger, but since it's an orange, I rarely wear it. So I decided to get something more wearable, and I ended up getting the shade 730 Nude And The City. It came a bit smashed, but it's usable, so I'll just sanitize it in case it's been used and deal with it because my nearest Ulta is far enough away that it wouldn't be worth making a trip just to return something. It's a gorgeous brownish nude that I can see myself wearing often.
I've wanted to try the Rimmel Provacalips for a while now, and the shade 120 Pucker Up was on sale, so I got it. It's pretty sheer and not a shade I would normally get, but I'm keeping it around for review purposes and to see if I like the product itself. I didn't notice until after I got it that the seal was broken, which is a bummer, but I'm going to have to risk it since there's no way to really sanitize this type of item.
In my head I justified getting this lipstick by telling myself that this isn't a color I have anything like in my collection, which is true. Its a NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in the shade Castle. It's a very pretty shimmery light purple, which is quite unique. I have a couple medium and dark purples, but no light ones.
The last thing I bought was an Essence Longlasting Lipstick in the shade 11 Nude Love. It's a pretty nude that I can see myself wearing a lot.
