(another) Ulta haul

First I would like to apologize for not being active, I have been in such a blogging rut and had nothing to write about. Luckily, Ulta was having another sale, giving me a new opporitunity to try new products!

Tarte “lights, camera, lashes” was marked down 50% so I snagged 2 for the price of one. This is my favorite mascara that i’ve used for a while, I’ll be doing a review on it soon! I really love the packaging and the size is totally worth it, it lasts me forever.

I also grabbed the  Too Faced “la Matte” in “Hey gurrl” I have never used a Too Faced product before but I’ve heard tons of good reviews on the brand. I don’t have any lipstick colors like this so I’m excited to try this one out. I love the packaging for the lipstick, it is so pretty and elegant. I think I’ll do a lipstick post soon and include a full review on this one.

Xoxo,

Fall nail polish

The season is getting colder which means sweaters, scarves, darker colors, and deeper nail polishes! I am so excited to wear darker colors on my nails seeing as though most of my colors are dark anyway. I’m pretty pale so I also like how stark the contrast is from my nails to my actual fingers.

Essie is my all time favorite brand, they are a little pricey but the quality is so great. Every time I get my nails done I get an Essie color. That being said, I don’t own any Essie polishes, but this fall I want to change that for sure! Essie comes out with new collections all the time, and their fall one as per usual is great.

These are Essie’s latest additions to their permanent collection. They are all sort of dusty and a step up from pastel which I think is great for every season. Im not big into “sunshine state of mind” or “high class affair” but I “splash of grenadine” is beautiful.

The “neon 2016” is so funky and electric. All the colors are young and fun and could totally add a cool pop of color to any outfit. These colors are definitely for the brave ones but with enough confidence, anyone could pull them off.

And finally, the Fall 2016 line. I am obsessed with all these colors, I want all of them. They are all so sultry and dark, perfect for any fall day or night. I’m honestly considering buying the whole collection and I am praying that my Ulta has it in stock so I don’t have to order online.

Freeman’s facemask

Face masks are something I discovered in the days of middle school when any zit remedy available was good enough for me. I started with Freeman and since then have not changed brands because they’re so good! I do eventually think I’ll try making my own mask just for kicks, but for now I’ll stick to my go-to.

I get the chocolate &  strawberry scent because it smells so good! Th consistency is really smooth and thick, a small dollop goes a long way. I spread it all over my face and leave it on for about 10 minutes until my whole face is dry. Sometimes the time varies if you put it on unevenly, so I suggest waiting until everything is the same shade, but no part has started to crack yet.

Wiping it off is really easy, I just stick my face under the faucet to warm water and rub the mask off with my hands. My skin is left feeling really soft and smooth. I try to use this once a week to keep my pores small and to really cleanse my skin of bacteria.

You can find the product here or at Ulta. I think I tried the Avocado Oatmeal mask a while ago and liked the results but wasn’t thrilled with the scent. I’m almost done with this tube so I think I will buy one of another scent soon!
