Ulta Haul (Oh dear...)

12/28/11

Since my parents live in the states, I come to visit them for holidays, etc. Apparently an Ulta store opened up in their small little town! For those of you that don't know Ulta is like a big makeup department store-much like Sephora! It has its own "ulta" brand but, unlike sephora, is also has the cheaper makeup drugstore brands as well as select higher end brands. It carries nailcare, haircare, bath and lotions, perfumes etc, as well as makeup! It even has some things for men :) So I've obviously been going crazy shopping here, they have NYX and thats one great brand that we seriously lack in Montreal. Naturally, since NYX is renowed for its round lipsticks, I bought... a whole bunch. I also grabbed a beautiful gold eyeliner for New Years but I can see myself wearing this guy on many nights out! It goes with all colours! :)

My Haul! Broken down below :)

Left to right: Lorac blush in Soul, NYX ultimate pearl e/s in Golden Pink Pearl, NYS e/s in Frosted Lilac

Same order as above but with flash

Urban Decay 24/7 liquid liner in El Dorado

NYX round lipsticks: Louisiana, Chloe, Rosebud, Femme, Tea Rose, Chaos, Fig, Paris, Indian Pink
Artificial light without flash

Same order as above but with flash. 


I'm having fun getting to try all these different colours! Cheaper versions of colours are so much easier cause you really begin to learn what you like. 
I will do swatches for all the above items, i'll have to break the NYX lipsticks in two posts since I want to do lipstick swatches :)
The only one that looks tricky so far in the NYX golden pink pearl eyeshadow, it doesn't look super pigmented but it is veeeery pretty in the pan! I need to find a way to work around that hehe
I have just spent so much money at this Ulta! I should seriously be put away, some please take away my plastic, this addiction is killing meeeeee. Where is cosmetic rehab?

Officially addicted to makeup!!
