Happy Friday! This week has gone by super fast and so has this day. Hopefully all of you have had a great week thus far. I got paid today and now have money for the weekend..woohoo! Speaking of weekend, what are your plans? Tonight instead of going out for date night, I am making chicken parmesan and spaghetti with garlic toast and dessert is going to be Oreo cheesecake. I also went out and bought the board game Sorry, which I haven’t played since I was a kid, and I cannot wait to play it tonight with Brad. And to the end night, we are going to watch Dumb and Dumber because I have never seen the first one and I think the sequel came out today.
This past weekend I went into ULTA for the first time ever. Where has this been all my life?! This is my new one stop spot for all of my make-up needs. I bought about $80 worth of items and I am going to share with you what I bought, what the product is used for, and what I thought about the product.
First I am going to start with the MAC products since they are not from ULTA. I love MAC’s Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 Foundation. If you haven’t gone and tried this foundation, you need to. I love the coverage this foundation gives. I generally wear the NW20 but right now I haven’t been tanning so I went down a shade to NW15. I also bought the Pro-Longwear Concealer in the shade NW15. I really like this concealer, it really brightens up under my eyes.
Next let’s talk about all of NYX products:
1.) Butter Gloss- Creme Brulee Perfect nude shade! It’s a great everyday lip gloss.
2.) Slim Lip Pencil- Prune– Love this color! It is perfect for fall/winter shade.
3.) Illuminator- Ritualistic– This is great for highlighting.
4.) Mineral “Set It & Don’t Fret It” Matte Finishing Powder- Light/Medium
5.) Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Brow Wiz- Medium/Ash Brown– There is nothing bad I can say about this product. I absolutely love the Brow Wiz and cannot wait to order more of her products.
6.) ULTA Baked Bronzer– Love this bronzer. It is perfect for contouring and the shade is great.
7.) Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional- Translucent– I don’t think I am in need of a primer. It will come in handy this winter when it is cold and my face gets red from the cold.
8.) Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream- Light/Medium– I bought this for the weekends when I don’t feel like putting any makeup on but just want a light coverage. Yesterday I tried the product out and love it. It was exactly what I am looking for. I think I could go up a shade though.
9.) ULTA Super Blender Sponge– I definitely need to practice using this sponge. I think I am a foundation brush girl but I do like using this for my concealer.
