My Ulta Holiday Haul

10 months ago

As much as I would like to stop buying more makeup, I can`t... Lol. I have enough to last me a life time. Well for eye shadows that is. I ended up going to Ulta to purchase the Anastasia Self Made eyeshadow palette after watching a review of it on YouTube. While there I also picked up some other goodies.

So during my visit to Ulta besides the Anastasia palette, I also picked up a lipstick, nail polish and two polish coats from the brand Essence.

The Anastasia Self Made palette is $35. Now only available at Ulta and probably the Anastasia site. It`s sold out at the Sephora site and most likely in stores also where I was originally planning on buying it from cause I had gift cards. The palette contains 14 shadows. There`s 2 mattes and the rest are shimmers and satin. It includes a duel ended brush that`s made in China. One shadow called pink champagne which is my favorite color and the reason why I chose to purchase this and it`s made in Italy. The rest of the shadows are made in the US. There`s a mirror inside and it`s a magnetic closure. This palette is limited edition so once it`s sold out its gone. After I grabbed my palette, another lady grabbed one too and there was only 2 more left at the Ulta I went to.

The lipstick I bought which is the Essence Longlasting lipstick is in the color Wear Berries. To me it looks like a mauvy berry color. I was attracted to this lipstick by its gorgeous color. This wasn`t a planned purchase. I always get attracted to pretty things. The price is $2.99 and it`s made in Italy.

The two polish base and top coats are also by Essence and they are both made in the UK. Price is $3.99 per bottle. It is to be used in conjunction with their gel polishes. This wasn`t a planned purchase either. I had orginally purchased two NYX high voltage lipsticks which I returned cause I didn`t like how the colors looked on me. Made me zombie like and I already had too many nudes. That`s what happens when you`re a makeup junkie... Lol... So I decided to use the money I got from returning the NYX products to purchase these two polish coats instead.

Last but not least, I got a polish also from Essence named 52 Amazed By You. Price is $1.99 per bottle and it`s made in Luxembourg. The color is like a plummy berry that is a great fall color and it looks great with my skin tone. I walked past this brand of makeup but this color nail polish caught my attention and that`s how I ended up with some other products from them.

I definitely loved what I hauled from Ulta and can`t wait to play with the palette. But my wallet is not so happy with me... hahaha. Now I have my eyes set on the Vice 4 palette from Urban Decay. Ok now my wallet is giving this weird look... Lol...
I also am soooo loving the nail color and plan on getting more colors. I also plan on getting some more of the Essence lipsticks too because so far I love how it applies and I love the color!

Some cons of the Essence lipsticks and polishes are that they have a small selection of colors to choose from. I believe it`s around 10 colors or so. And it`s only available at Ulta stores and online. I wish they were more readily available at other drugstores. I don`t really live close by to a Ulta.

Happy holidays and hauling!!!!
