Ulta Haul + First Impressions

ulta hauledited Hi friends! I'm a platinum perk member at Ulta, which means I spend way too much money there! I've been saving my points for a looong time, and I finally cashed them in. I got everything in the above photo for free! I was super excited to try some new products, so I figured it'd be nice to share them with all of you in a bonus post this week. That's how much I love you. (: I got backups of some items that I've been using for a while now. L'Oreal True Match Concealer and Concealer Crayon- I've been using both of these products for a while. I suffer from acne, and the concealer crayon really helps cover up any blemishes. I love the liquid concealer for everyday use. I have both of these in two colors for when I'm tan and not tan. I have N1-2-3 and N4-5. Garnier BB Cream- I'm not a fan of foundation, so I use BB cream instead. I like that it has SPF in it, is light on the skin, and is super blendable. I also have this product in Light/Medium and Medium/Deep. Then, I tried some new products! Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Palette- I'd been eyeing this palette for a while, so I decided I'd splurge and pick this up since I had points. So far, I really like it. I don't wear eye shadow every day, but it's great for those days I want to be a bit more glam. The shadows are extremely pigmented and finely milled. The quality is great! Erase Paste Brightening Concealer in Fair- I've heard so much about this concealer and how it covers literally anything you could ever want it to cover. I don't know if I'm missing something or if I'm just not applying it correctly, but I'm not sold yet. I'll keep you updated if I figure out what I'm doing wrong. Real Techniques Setting Brush- This is the perfect brush to apply highlights. I was using a fan brush, but this one makes it easier to apply the product exactly where you want it. NYX Matte Bronzer in Light- This is my first go at a drugstore bronzer, and so far I really like it! It's pigmented and a great color match for me. Smashbox Bronze Lights in Warm Matte- I've been using the old Smashbox bronzer for a few years, but they discontinued it, so I picked up this one. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks gorgeous in the packaging. I also received a 7-piece lip sampler set. It included the following. Deluxe sample Benetint- This is the first tint I've ever used. I like it, but I don't think it'll be a product that I reach for. Deluxe sample Too Faced Melted Lipstick Melted Peony- This is GORGEOUS! I already had this in another color so I already knew I liked the formulation, but this color is spot on! Full size L'Oréal LeMatte in She's so Matte- This is my first fully matte color. It's the perfect shade to transition into fall. This is what I'm wearing today. Full size Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Picadilly Pink- I think this color is great for the spring/summer. Full size Essence XXXL Shine Lip Gloss in Metal Shine- I'm not a fan of this. The formula is a little sticky for my liking. Full size Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick in Rum Raisin- I have a few of these in other colors, but this color is really pretty for the upcoming fall and winter months. Full size NYX Butter Gloss in Eclair- Love love love this product! I hope this post helps you out! What's your favorite beauty product? Let me know in the comments! Xoxo, Sarah Shop all the products below!
