Ulta Haul

During my latest Ulta trip I picked up a variety of beauty products including hair, makeup and nail products. Some of the things I purchased are below, please read on if your interested!

I was instantly drawn to this Nyx blush for its amazingly bright pink color. I adore bright pink blush it is one of my favorite things in the world. This Nyx rouge cream blush in hot pink has been my go to blush for the past couple of weeks. This product blends really well and you barely need much product to create your desired effect. The Nyx super fat eye marker was some what of a disappointment. I found it easy to use and gave a nice thick black line but uunfortunately I feel like the marker dried out too fast. The last product from Nyx is the jumbo lip pencil in hot red. I decided to give this a try because I wanted to try a bold red lip but often I feel I cant pull of the red lip thing so with Nyx being an inexpensive brand it wouldn't have been a huge loss to my bank account if it ended up not working out for me. I have to say though it worked out amazingly well! It glided on easily and lasted me all night through a friends birthday outing, retouching it only once. I do have to warn you though, applying it can be messy if your not careful.

I am sure that everyone has been hearing non stop about all the amazing hair oils on the market, but for some reason I'm just now getting on the band wagon. I think I the word OIL just made me hesitant as it gives me visions of grease soaked hair.... not something I like hence why I bought the light formulation. I thought since this was an inexpensive brand, this bottle costing me only about $8 I could test my feet in the water so to speak. I have only used it a couple times so I can't just yet give a proper review but so far it has left my hair feeling hydrated and silky after each use.
I recently ran out of my face primer and while in Ulta decided to find a new one. While shopping around I tested each primer that was available in the store in order to find the smoothest formulation. I wound up choosing this Studio Gear prime objective skin perfecting face primer. I plan on posting a full review and comparison of this with other primers I have used recently so keep an eye out for that!
The last product I purchased was this Redken Satin heat styling lotion. I decided to pick up a test size to see if I liked it and all I have to say is .... that since purchasing this has been my go to product and I will be buying the full size bottle as soon as I run out of the the test size. IT IS THAT GOOD!

Wow this was a long post! Have any of you made any purchases recently that you just can't help but rave about?
