ULTA Beauty is my Favorite

Hello Passionistas!!!

I recently stopped by ULTA to pick up a few goodies. I wanted to try some new facial cleansers and I’ve really been interested in trying a peel mask. So, Here’s what I found in ULTA:

Formula 10.0.5 Be Berry Awake Energizing Peel Mask, Yumberry + Pomegranate

This is the first peel mask I have ever tried. It is a gel. So the gel and perry effect makes the formula very thick. All it takes is one thin coat. Once applied it dries pretty quick. The peel process is easy, painless, and no hassle. After the product was all peeled off, my skin instantly felt different.

Formula 10.0.6 Keep Your Cool Skin-Calming Gel Mask, Coconut +Cucumber

This mask feels so good. The gel is thick but not hard to spread across your face. Its meant to reduce the appearance of harsh breakouts. Now, I don’t experience a lot of breakouts on my face- but heat has a way of making my skin feel and look stressed. The cucumber in the product is meant to help calm your skin to feel cool, calm and under control.

ULTA is my favorite because overtime I go in this store, they have some type of ULTA beauty sale that excites me. This time it was “spend $16.50 or more on any ULTA beauty products and get a FREE gift”. I love FREE gifts, so these types of sales are targeted for people like me. I like to try lower- end makeup brands and products before buying the more high-end brand, just to see how I like the product and how it looks on me.  Here’s my bonus goodies:

ULTA Beauty Matte Lip Crayon, in the color Soiree

ULTA Beauty Matte Lipstick, in the color Mulberry

The FREE gift was this makeup wallet filled with Eyeliner, Eyebrow Pencil, Shadow sticks , oil blotting Sheets, and Pink Satin Hair Tie.

September Ipsy Bag

Hello Passionistas!!!

So I am a little late on September Ipsy bag review.


Honestly, I wasn’t really excited about this bag. I love the sleek faux leather black bag. But the items did not tickle my fancy.🤦🏾‍♀️

My bag contained:

Elizabeth Molt Pop! Goes the Shadow in the color Toasted

I love a good natural toned eye shadow for everyday simple make-up. But this is an item that I’ve gotten before – or one similiar. I am still using the other one I got a bag or two past. I will use this eventually. Right now it’s with the pile of other make-up I don’t use often.

 

Colourpop Ulta Glossy Lip (in this frosted Pink color)

First off, I’m not a fan of lip gloss. I prefer matte lipstick or liquid lipstick. I used to buy colourpop lipstick and liners all the time. But then I was introduced to others that I liked better like Tarte and Anastasia Beverly Hills. I’m into nudes and flesh colors right now and if I do a color lip I like darker colors. So I haven’t wore this. I might add this to the collection of items I plan on giving away.

 

Birch Juice Hydro Sleeping Pack.

This is a product that I have been using in the evening. Normally I come home from work and wash my makeup off my face and use my Aveeno Daily Facial Moisturizer to moisturize my face. Recently, I’ve been using this product at night and the Aveeno in the morning after washing my face. They both feel the same. The texture is non greasy and rubs in smooth.  So this a product I may purchase the full size of.

 

Ciate Wonderwand Mascara.

I got one of these last month. As I said then, I love these miniature mascaras. They are the perfect size for makeup bags. And mascara is mascara- I’m loyal to no brand of mascara. I’ll use just about any type. But right now I’m still using the makeup forever brand. I don’t know about y’all but it take (seems like) forever it finish a mascara.

 

Feel Renewed. Pumpkin Walnut Facial Cleanser.

I love a great facial. But I’ve been on the sheet mask trend. But I will use this on eventually.

Hopefully I like my October bag better!🤷🏽‍♀️
