Ulta Gorgeous Hair event October 2019 –
I scanned the ad for the upcoming Ulta Gorgeous Hair event which runs from October 6 -26 2019.
This is my first ever palette from Lime Crime and it was a joy to photograph!
I’m not ready to make a review yet, but I will say that it looks way better and more appealing in person than it did in the photos.
It’s (still) on sale at Ulta Beauty for $46.40. I used a personalized coupon they emailed me, plus some points and only paid $32!
The colour story is very whimsical and different, so I’m really looking forward to testing it extensively!
❓Do you find these soft colours appealing? What do you think of the Lime Crime eyeshadow formula?
This was the first purchase I made from Flower Beauty – and I had never swatched it.
I’ve talked before about how picky I am with highlighters (I really don’t like glitter or chunky ones) and I prefer something that can go from soft to blinding so I can adjust it depending on the day and my mood.
This highlighter does all that. It’s very buttery and soft and a little product goes a long way.
The formula has no glitter and is super buttery and buildable from natural to strong.
For the price you really can’t go wrong! My favourite shade out of the 3 is the leftmost one, but they’re all beautiful. I’d definitely purchase it again and recommend!
❔Have you tried this product? What’s your favourite drugstore highlighter?
🌸Hope you all had an awesome weekend! Happy Monday! 💗
MAKEUP REVOLUTION Jewel Collection Jelly Highlighter in shade “Dazzling” (iced silver shimmer)
SCROLL DOWN FOR CLOSEUP AND SWATCHES!
This is my first jelly highlighter purchase! I was convinced into buying this after seeing one of my favourite accounts @boise.beauty swatching hers. I wanted the gold but it was out of stock so I got this silver one instead.
The texture on this is super weird. It feels like some kind of bouncy play thing. It’s cool though and fun to play with, but also messy to apply.
Once it’s on, this highlighter is adheres really well to my skin and I actually have to try really hard to get it to come out, so I’m thinking it would last all day on my face without a problem.
As you can see on my swatches, you can go less or more intense with this product to suit your taste. Overall this is probably the most blinding highlighter I have an it’s a good purchase considering it costs $9 at Ulta and less if you catch a sale.
Have you used any jelly highlighters? What are your thoughts?
Today I’m reviewing Flower Beauty Flowerpots Powder Blush in Warm Hibiscus.
Here is a closeup shot I took of it:
And here is a swatch:
How cute is this blush?! I have been very curious about Drew Barrymore’s brand Flower Beauty for a while now, so when I saw a few of their products were on sale during Ulta’s Fall Haul sale, I had to jump in and try it.
This product is the Flowerpots Powder Blush in shade “Warm Hibiscus”. It is a luminous blush which depending how the light hits has a golden shift to it. It’s not super pigmented which I enjoy in a blush, because I prefer to build it up and have more control over the pigmentation that way. This blush gives me a very pretty, healthy flush of colour and luminosity which is great for days when I want to do my makeup quickly and get out of the door while still having a natural glow on my face, without the need for extra products.
FYI I have fair neutral skin, and haven’t tested this on other skintones.
I also purchased a highlighter palette from them which I’ll be reviewing at some point.
Here are some OFRA Beverly Hills highlighter swatches and closeup!
I got a new camera (Nikon z7) 📷❤️ and thought I’d show you how beautiful this OFRA Beverly Hills highlighter is.
I got it for half price during the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty sale! I love that you can use individual shades or just swirl them all together. It feels like I have several highlighters all in one. I don’t like chunky glittery highlighters so I was glad to see this one doesn’t have any crazy glitter in it, athough it definitely can be very bright and blinding if you build it up. I’m personally more of a natural-to-medium-intensity type of girl.
Too Faced Chocolate Bar 50% off at Ulta today only! (September 16, 2018)
This is a great basic eyeshadow palette that’s been a staple for many people through the past several years. While (in my opinion) it’s not the best palette that Too Faced makes, it is one of the most iconic ones. If you already have a million basic palettes then you might not need this one, but if you are newer to make up and building your collection I’d definitely recommend it!
In addition to this, don’t forget to use your favourite cash back site to get a few dollars back, too. I like to use Ebates because they automatically pay you every couple of months. The way it works is you simply sign up, go to Ulta (or whatever other retailer) through their site, and then you make your purchase as you normally would. If you don’t have an Ebates account and you decide to sign up, you will get an extra $10 if you sign up using my link and then make your purchase, and so will I.
Ulta Brushes Sale!❤
Ulta Beauty brushes are on sale for $7 this week!
I bought one a few weeks ago (Powder Brush, pictured above) and I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality and feel of this brush. I paid $20 for it and at $7 this is a great bargain! I will definitely stock up on some of their other brushes.
The other items in my photo are their “Beauty Smarts Makeup Spatulas”, which are designed to get the last bit of product from your makeup containers and get the most out of them, but I actually also use them to stir up lip glosses and other products that have settled in the bottle and can’t be shaken for mixing.
The other item to the left is their “Beauty Smarts Tool and Brush Organizer”, which has been AMAZING for me. It’s super flexible and I put my most used brushes and tools in it, no more hunting for my favourite tools among all the others! Saves me a lot of time (you stick the tool in the pink slots and it stands up straight)
These are definitely some unsung heroes for me from Ulta Beauty.

I put together this collage with precise information so that it’s easier to visualize which deals will be held only online and which deals will be just for Platinum / Diamond members.
