Ulta Haul and the Story of the Sewer Lip Crayon…

My mom and I had a girls day and went to the Verizon store for them to tell me there was nothing they could do about my phone losing time, lunch, a movie (The Man from U.N.C.L.E  Soooo good had bad reviews which means it’s awesome) and then some shopping at Ross, Ulta and Versona. All that to say I’m going to share what I picked up from Ulta; and tell you the tale of the Sewer Lip Crayon.

Maybelline was buy one get one 50% off so I picked up my old favorite Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer in the Brightener shade and something new for me to try the Oil Control Translucent Pressed Powder in Soft Cameo.  I haven’t used it yet but I’ll give an update when I do.

I’ve been using the Simple Micellar Water after cleansing to make sure I get all my makeup off and I have just a tiny bit left so I decided to pick up the All Bright Micellar Cleanser from Boots.  Also haven’t used this yet but I’ll let you know if it’s as good or not as the Simple.  Also I’ve never used Bioderma which is what I would consider the Grandfather (would that be grandmother..?) of Micellar Cleansers/Waters.

I was in search of a volumizng powder since mine disappeared… I found the Batiste XXL Plumping Powder and I have used this and it works pretty well.

I have heard great things about the Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation so I thought why not add to my foundation collection and give this one a try?  (sidenote I’m almost out of my Revlon Colorstay so I justified this purchase…  🙂 ) Guess what people?  This Foundation is the bomb dot com.  For real it is my new Favorite.  It is medium to full coverage and it somehow looks better the longer you wear it.

I also picked up the Philosophy Here Comes the Bride kit just so I could get the *free gift* which was this awesome Weekender Bag!  The Philosophy Kit will go to good use as I’m sure I’ll have a bride to gift it to at some point 🙂

My sister in law bought my mom a makeup kit from Ulta and my mom fell in love with one of the lip crayons in the kit named Love Story.  While my mom was visiting my sister in Colorado she was applying her makeup in the car (does everyone’s mom do this or just mine…?) My mom opened her car door at a stop sign because it wasn’t closed all the way and her lip crayon which was on her lap fell off and rolled down the street into a sewer drain.  You can’t make this stuff up people.  So we were on a hunt to find her a replacement lip crayon in the color Love Story.  Our Ulta was out of that color so I ordered it online for her but the story was too good to not share.  I placed the order a few days after our visit so I texted her and let her know that I had ordered her ‘Two sewer lip crayons’

Sorry for the long absence.  I have a job that I work like a crazy person for a few months out of the year  and barely have time to eat and sleep let alone keep up with a blog.  So moving on….

 Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Mudslide

Very pretty pinky nude color. While I am not sold on the “complete manicure” part , I like the color and the formula is good, but the brush is AMAZING!!  It is very wide and I can paint my nail in two swipes.  $6.50 at Wally World.

Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner

 I saw this at Ross and picked it up. First time I used it I was not really impressed and I thought it smelled weird, second time I used it I thought the smell was so bad there is no way I will use this again.  I am not the type of person to throw away something I bought so I held onto it with the thought that I would find someone to pawn the smelly spray off on.  Fast forward a month and I had rolled my hair to tightly and had Shirley Temple curls, not cool.  So I sprayed this on my hair to loosen the curl. Hmmm strange doesn’t stink like I remember… and I got complements on how nice my hair smelled.  So I don’t know why I suddenly did a 180 on this product, but I love this stuff! Retails at Ulta for around $17 (which is expensive for me) but I paid $6.50 at Ross.

mark White Now Necklace

When I first got this necklace, I thought, “hmmm, well looks different then the picture but it’s cool.”  Seriously every time I wear it I get compliments , I loop mine like the picture so it is two strands.  $22.00 at mark.

Mask of Magnaminty

I love lush and this mask is no exception.  Unlike their fresh face mask, that you can only buy in store,  you can buy this one online as it does not have to be kept in the fridge.  But I like to keep my mine cool as it feels even more refreshing.  I like when you are removing the mask  the aduki beans act as an exfoliate, so you have a mask and light scrub in one!
