My Birthday Ulta Haul
Hey everyone! If you didn't know, my birthday was actually just a month ago and Ulta was actually nice enough to send me a $10 off anything Birthday coupon since I am a Platinum member. To tell you the truth, being a Platinum member isn't anything special. So far the $10 off coupon is the best thing but thats it. I haven't gotten any good offers or been invited to any special events (if they had any). Anyways, since they sent me the coupon, I knew that I couldn't let it go to waste. I made sure that I was going to take advantage of it before it expires. LOL The only bad thing was that I didn't know what I wanted when I walked into the store.
WHAT I BOUGHT:
◊ Anastasia Bold Brows Kit "Dark Brown"
I have been wanting to try out the Anastasia Brow Powder Duo for the longest! I also wanted to try the Tarte Brow Mouse as well but my Ulta didn't have my shade in stock. Oh well, saves me money! LOL Anyways since I saw that Anastasia came out with this kit, I knew that I had to get it. It was such a good deal since it retails for $36. It comes with a full size brow powder duo, full size clear brow gel, and a mini brush. The brow powder duo itself retails for $23 and the brow gel is $22 so if I had bought them individually, I would end up paying way more than what I had paid for the kit. So if you have been wanting to try out the brow powder duo, you should definitely go and get this kit before its all sold out. I have been trying out the brow powder duo since I bought it and I have really been loving it. I love it way more than my beloved ELF Studio Eyebrow Kit but I wish that it wasn't on the pricey side. LOL
◊ Maybelline Nail Polish "370 Shocking Seas"
I actually don't know the reason why I bought this since I already have so many other polish brands in this color but I think it was because I had a coupon for it. LOL Dang, me and my coupons! I will probably end up giving this polish away or saving it for a future contest, which I do plan to have. I just need to figure out all the details and how to have one.
As always, whenever I made a purchase at Ulta, I always make sure to try to remember to ask for samples at the checkout. Sometimes I do forget and regret it but I always try to remember. I actually got two samples and one of them is one that I was really happy to get! Can you guys guess which one? Do you have your guess yet? 3-2-1 It was the Benefit Stay Flawless Primer. Let me know in the comments below if you guys guess right. LOL Anyways, Benefit recently came out with a new primer and I was so happy to have gotten this as a sample. I have been using it everyday since and I must say that I really like it. If it wasn't on the pricey side, I would definitely purchase the full size of it. The other sample that I got was a RedKen Diamond Oil. Its supposed to make your hair really shiny so I am not sure if I am going to try this since I don't really want my hair to look oily shiny but we will see.
Anyways, that was my entire birthday haul from Ulta! So far, I am really loving the Anastasia brow powder but I am a bit peeved that right when I finally buy it, they change the packaging to black and gold instead of a shiny silver. LOL Don't you guys hate that when that happens? Don't be surprised when you see this in my monthly favorites. By the way, I still need to post up my July Favorites and hopefully I will get everything done this week. Sorry for the delay. Hope you guys liked my mini haul and hope to talk to you guys later!
