Ulta Haul! Spring 2015

So for the last few months, I have been hauling quite a bit of stuff. Ulta kept sending those 20% off coupons every now and then. I couldn’t resist checking out what was new at Ulta and with 20% off, I just had to take advantage of that discount. So here is my cumulative ulta haul!

I threw the box already because I kept coming back to it and using it. It’s so gorgeous! Swatching it is not enough. You guys have to try it on at Sephora on your skin or if your Ulta has it in their stores.

UD Solstice Collage
I got this based on bflyrenee’s recommendation. She featured it in her favorites. I was scared when I first swatched this at the store. It’s basically pressed glitter shadow. But the color combination of this shadow had so many possibilities. The base is a reddish-pink color topped with blue-green glitter and the swatch really was beautiful. The swatch in the picture doesn’t even compare to actually swatching it in person.

I decided to give this a chance again. I bought it before but in streak. The bronzer was too light for my complexion and I didn’t like the blush or highlight. However, I tried Naked in the store and it did compliment my skin tone so I decided try it out again. I was really disappointed when I had to return streak because of the portability of this palette.

Ahh yes, the mascara that everyone’s been talking about. I decided to finally give in to the hype just because I have loved all of the other benefit mascaras. I’m not going to say too much because I am doing a review on this soon enough. So stay tuned for that!

I hate spending a lot of money for nail polishes. I love wearing nail polish but my nails grow so fast that it’s hard to keep nail polish on my nails. I usually have to remove them after 5 days or even 3 sometimes. Plus my nails are naturally huge and I don’t cut them unless they’re super long, so it takes a lot of nail polish just to apply them all over my nails. This nail polish was $15 which is steep for what I usually like to pay for nail polish. I’ve had them on for about a week and half now and they definitely need to be redone already. They started chipping around the 5th day. However, the application process was easy, not streaky and only 2 coats. BUT what irks me the most about this nail polish is that 2 coats cost me almost half the bottle. It’s a great nail polish but I probably won’t be buying it by itself. I’ll wait until they have sets for a good deal.

batiste dry shampoo blush and floral essence
You guys will see this in my favorites for this month, so I won’t even talk about it too much except the fact that it’s absolutely AMAZING! They were having a buy one get one for 50% off, so I decided to grab these since I’ve been using up (and loving) my current one like crazy.

That’s pretty much it for this haul! I have a couple of more hauls on the way. I’m sorry if you don’t like hauls but there’s a lot of new spring stuff and it was my birthday last month so I have been shopping quite a lot the past month just because you get deals and coupons on your birthday. So watch out for those hauls!

Thanks for stopping by, until next time!

As Always,
Nicole ❤
