During Ulta’s 20% off sale I picked up some fun new items! I went to Ulta to pick up the IT Cosmetics Velvet Luxe Empress Fan Brush, but sadly (and not surprisingly), it was sold out. So of course, I needed to find some other items I just couldn’t live without!

1 // I knew that I wanted to pick up Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner in Intense Black. I’d heard wonderful things about the quality of the product and was on the look for something new! I still love Loreal’s Lineur Intense Brush Tip Liquid Eyeliner, but I realized by the end of the work day the intensity of the color was wearing off and the finish would become sort of shiny. I’ve used this eyeliner every day since and it’s amazing! I’ve worn it morning to night and it literally doesn’t budge!

2 // I needed to restock my Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. This is the only product I’ve used over the past year for break outs. I’m not kidding, 99% of the time you wake up and your blemishes are gone! I apply with a Qtip and let it sit overnight {yes it will leave a white spot on your face, but it’s so worth it}. This time I purchased the plastic bottle instead of glass, which to me makes much more sense just in case it’s dropped.

3 // While checking out all of the new products and perusing every aisle, one of Ulta’s employees asked me if I’d ever tried Butter London’s Lippy lip glosses. I hadn’t and I spotted a beautiful pale peach. I tested it on the back of my hand and the color was gorgeous and the consistency thick. So far the jury is still out. The first time I used the gloss it was so sticky that when I talked I felt like I had glue on my mouth, but since then I’ve tried using a lip balm prior or over a lipstick and it’s so much better. Two thumbs up for the packaging!

4 // While checking out I spotted Body Shop’s Coconut Hand Cream in the travel size bins. I’d actually been on the look out for an amazing hand cream, because my knuckles had been like sand paper {thank you cold weather}. For $6 this is something every women needs in their purse! The smell is just as intoxicating as every other Body Shop product and it has kept my hands feeling soft.

5 // The last product is probably my favorite and such a find! I haven’t seen any beauty bloggers or YouTubbers talk about Stila’s Magnificent Metal Lip Gloss. The packaging, which mirrors YSL, caught my eye. I was wearing Tom Ford’s Nude Vanille {my favorite lip stick of all time} and placed Pink Sapphire over top. **Angels Singing** Beautiful! This is the perfect gloss to add on top of a lipstick for a beautiful sparkly sheen and a holiday finish. I like it so much I’m tempted to buy a backup!

Have a beautiful Wednesday.
