Finally Some Makeup! Small Ulta Haul

Hey Guys!

I am finally back with a real post for ya! Today I wanted to do a haul. I recently went to Ulta to indulge in their 20% off sale (like I needed an excuse…) I walked away with some pretty great stuff:

1. Tarte Holilday "Away Oui Go" Giftset. You guys this thing is amazeballs. It has 16 eye shadows that are to die for, 4 Amazonian Clay blushes, 3 deluxe maracuja lipglosses, 1 deluxe Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara, and a cute portable compact. You can pop out one of the 4 palettes, put in in the compact, and go! Perfect for the Holidays.
2. Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation in Medium Beige and the Airbuki powder foundation brush. Okay, I am still on the fence about this one, I have been using Bare Minerals powder foundation (also in Medium Beige) for quite some time now and lately I just find it leaving my face dull and blah. So I wanted to switch it up and I have heard some good things about the Tarte foundation. I like to wear a powder foundation during the week because it takes me less than 5 minutes to do my makeup in the morning before work and I am all about getting as much beauty sleep as possible (and pressing the snooze button as many times as I dare). I tried the Tarte foundation and at first found it very blotchy and hard to blend. I think the color may be a little too yellow for my skin as well. After another day or 2 of applying, I liked it a little better but I am still unsure if I would ever buy this product again. I'll keep you posted. :)
 3. Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo Metal Eyeshadow in Barely Branded. I really like the consistency of these eyeshadows. I have a couple of the colors now and they are just easy to work with and you don't need a  brush to apply, I usually just use my fingers!

4. Maybelline Lipsticks from the new Matte line in Touch of Spice and Devine Wine. Send out the Hallelujah chorus!! these lippies are heavenly. I am obsessed with them. They are both great colors for Fall. Touch of Spice is my Holy Grail lipstick, it never leaves my side. The formula is really creamy (especially for a matte) and they are very pigmented. I have been really into the matte craze lately so these are perfect for me. I want more colors!! (top swatch: Divine Wine. Middle: Touch of Spice. Bottom: Barely Branded). Then there is me participating in Sunday Bun day and of course rocking the Touch of Spice.

So that was my Ulta Haul you guys, I hoped you liked it and it wasn't too long winded. :) Happy Sunday!
