Ulta 21 Days of Beauty

Hello everyone! Today I’m going to let you in on my picks for the 21 days of beauty at Ulta. I know this is a few days late, but for some reason I no longer get e-mails or mailers sent to me. I figured it would be better late than never. A couple of things, not all the deals are in store; some are online only. Also there are a couple that are platinum perks. I’m only going to share my picks for what is available to everyone. This means if you aren’t a platinum member the deal is not available to you. One more thing, these are items that I have had some experience with or on a list to try out. Hopefully I will be able to pick up a few bits. SO, let’s start with today…

Have a great weekend and I’ll see you in my next post.

June Play! by Sephora Unboxing

Hello lovelies! I have the worst luck with technology. This is possibly my fifth time writing this post. Let’s jump right in! I just have to say that I am really enjoying this subscription box. I can see where some people who have larger beauty arsenal may not think this subscription is much, but as someone on a budget, I love this! The June box is called The Minimalists.

This month’s box contains:

bareMinerals Bareskin Sheer Sun Serum Bronzer

Benefit They’re Real Mascara

Bumble and Bumble Don’t blow it hairstyler

Becca Backlight Priming Filter

Tarte Tarteguard SPF 30

Tocca Eau de Parfum in Florence

June Play 2016

Overall, I am extremely happy with this box. These are items definitely live up to the theme of the box. With the hot weather most of us gals have our hair tied up and don’t do much to it. I haven’t put much effort into my hair the last few months, including not blow drying it. I’m really excited to try out the Bumble and Bumble styler, the Becca primer and the bareMinerals serum bronzer(especially since I have a tan now). I tried out the Tarteguard on my face because the sunscreen that I have is not good for face, and I absolutely loved it! I intend to use this solely on my face and buy the full size when I’m done. When it comes to the Benefit They’re Real mascara, I just absolutely love this. I was actually needing a new tube of it specifically for a wedding that I was standing up in this past weekend, but I also use this whenever I want my lashes to look like I have falsies on.

That is all for now. I hope you enjoyed this post. If you want to see the makeup looks that I did for the wedding rehearsal and the wedding let me know in the comments. Have a great week! See you in my next post.

 

April Favorites!!

Hi lovelies! May is in full swing and the beginning of wedding season for me. April was just as busy for me. These items have been my go to, have to look presentable, and out the door in 10 minutes.

IMG_1314

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette- bootycall all over the lid and tease in the crease. This palette makes it so easy for a quick every day eye look. When I’m in a rush I always grab this.

Covergirl Clump Crusher mascara- Even though I started using this early in April, this quickly became my favorite everyday mascara.

For more of a glam and night option, the Benefit They’re Real mascara has been a longtime favorite ever since I started using this a few years ago.

I have pretty full brows and don’t need much filling in. I prefer to have them “filled in” just a bit. The Maybelline Brow Drama has been perfect for me. I do a quick swipe on each brow and I’m ready to go.

On my lips, I’ve just ¬†stuck with lip balm or nothing at all. My go to lip shade and product is the Buxom Full-On Lip Creme in White Russian.

My last favorite of the month, has been Essie’s Millionails nail treatment. Quite a few months ago, I had a terrible time with my nails breaking, chipping, and peeling. This has definitely helped strengthen my nails.

That’s all for my April favorites. I hope you enjoyed what I’ve been loving. Like I said, this last month has been crazy busy for me and I kept with things that I know and love, and will work. What have you all been loving? Have a great week!!
