I'm a beauty-loving gal working full time at Ulta Beauty and living with my hubby and fur babies in Eastern Kentucky!
I'm Harry Potter obsessed & love all things bohemian design. When it comes to home decor I think the crazier, the better! Coincidentally, I feel the same about lip colors!
If I'm not trying out new beauty products you can probably find me sipping an iced coffee and watching Friends with my pup.
Finally, a pretty glow kit for my fair skin! I love this! The colors are pigmented and show up beautifully on my skin tone. I purchased this at Ulta and think that four highlighters for $40 is a really fair price! If you want to glow ever harder, try layering the shades or wetting your brush with Fix+!
First off, I don't work out. I just work retail and am always sweating around the store building displays and running all over the place. I got this foundation for free from Ulta for being a platinum member! Heck yes, Ulta! I chose this one from Clinique because I liked the idea of a makeup that would stay put through sweat and active work. It does a really good job! I like the matte finish even though I'm usually a satin finish girl, and I like how fluid it goes on. It's easy to blend out with a sponge or a buffing brush. I've tried it a few different ways and you definitely have to know how to work with it to get the proper wear from it. Heavy moisturizers underneath make this a very sticky foundation. It doesn't dry and tends to slide off. I stick with a lightweight moisturizer and primer and set with powder to get the right consistency. I also found that letting one application dry then applying another makes this stay on even longer! All in all, this is a pretty foundation and works well for Day to day wear even if you aren't working out. It's pretty and evens out skin tone without looking cakey and I usually get compliments on my skin when I wear it! Also, It's a really affordable price compared to other prestige brand foundations!
This is my holy grail face spray! I use this in 100 different ways. I am so glad that Ulta started carrying MAC because I purchase it there instead of having to order or drive 2 hours to closest MAC location! Now to the uses: my number one favorite way to use is to set my makeup, of course! I won't leave the house without setting it! Other ways I use it: prepping! I like to hydrate my face with this before I put foundation on! I also spray shadow brushes with this to increase pigmentation of my shadows. I love to spray my beauty blender with this before I blend out makeup, contours, etc. I use it throughout the day as well if my skin starts to feel dry or if I start to get hot. It cools me off! I also like to use this at bedtime just to give my skin an extra boost of hydration and nourishment! So many ways for just one product that is priced REALLY well, YES PLEASE. Thanks, MAC, for such a good universal product!
This is the first product I have ever felt the need to share on my social media timeline JUST BECAUSE. It works. It really works!
I purchased from Ulta 3 days ago and am currently on day 3 of using this every night. I had a color service that dried my scalp out about a month ago and I have struggled with redness, itchiness, and flaking ever since. This cured it! Seriously! I haven't found myself scratching my scalp and the red patches along my scalp are almost gone! I haven't noticed ANY flaking and my scalp in general just feels more comfortable. I also love how it instantly cools and soothes so you can feel it working immediately. I cannot recommend this enough. If you have a sensitive scalp or experience occasional itchiness even after shampooing, use this! If you have a dried out scalp, use this! If you just want to hydrate and restore PH balance to your scalp, use this! It is is absolutely worth the money
I love this as a setting spray. I picked this up at my Ulta and not only does it smell great, but it feels great on the skin and really helps your makeup last the entire day! For the price this is definitely a favorite!
This is too dark for me. I bought this in December from Ulta when it was on sale, and I'm glad I didn't pay full price for it. While it nice to add to my collection, I rarely use it. I use the lighter browns and taupes, but never go towards the right side of the pan. I do, however, use the brush on an almost daily basis! I would not recommend this to anyone who tends to stay away from darker shadows. If you love to wear darks, this would be great for you!
I love love love this product! I have several different mascaras and this is my favorite next to MAC zoom lash! I wear this every single day because it does not clump like zoom lash does, yet it gives a really long, volumptious look to your lashes! I picked this up at Ulta and have been so pleased that I will repurchases when I run out. It does not dry out, lasts all day, and even has a nice smell to it! The bottle is simple yet classy, and looks great on my makeup stand! Would recommend!
I feel like this mascara should be more popular than it is. I have used it off and on for several years and recently received a sample in the mail with my MAC order and have fallen in love all over again! It lengthens my already long lashes & I always get asked what I'm wearing! I will be ordering this once my sample size runs out (which will be soon). We don't have a MAC where I live, but I love that when you order from their site you get free samples! It almost makes it worth it to order!
I LOVE this concealer. Holy cow! I've been using other brands while I've patiently awaited my shade, Fair, to come back in stock at my local Ulta! This blows everything out of the water. It blends and covers so beautifully- like it could probably cover my tattoo! I use it daily for my under eye area and to highlight my nose, forehead, and cheek bones. I think I will purchase a darker shade to use for contouring!
10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a full coverage concealer!
I'm new to the world of cat eye, but this seemed really difficult for me to use. It gives great pigment when you use it from the side and press down hard, but for soft, precise lining it doesn't work very well. I initially got a pretty cat eye from it, but it did take some tweaking and concealing!
I would prefer the tip to be a bit smaller and easier to work with, but it's decent for the price.
