Ulta Haul | Nyx & L'oreal!

Ulta had an 40% off sale a couple weeks ago and I couldn't resist so I did a little damage at Ulta. I had a few things that I wanted from NYX- which was mostly repurchases because I had to stock up on some of my faves so this 40% sale was perfect for me. I picked a couple of L'oreal goodies that I had been eyeing for a while.

L'Oreal True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator in Rose: This is one of L'Oreal's new products. I don't have a rose gold highlighter so I definitely wanted this. There are 3 shades available: ice which is for fair skin women, rose is supposed to be suitable for those who are neutral and gold for darker skin tones. I wish I picked up gold as well.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams in Prague & Monte Carlo: I own almost half of this range of lippies. I love the color selection, formula and scent. I had been wanting Prague for the longest now and finally picked it up. Prague is a lovely purple shade and Monte Carlo appears to be a dark red but it is not as dark as it looks in the tube. It's kind of like a dark red with a bit of pink tones. I wish it were as dark and vampy as it looks in the packaging.

NYX Dewy Setting Spray: IS BAE just like the Soft Matte Lip Creams. It sets my makeup and gives a pretty dewy finish to my skin without my skin looking like an oil slick. I had to repurchase this. Oily skin ladies who want to keep their oils at bay may not like this but dry & normal skin types will love this.

 NYX HD Concealer in Glow: I own like 3 different colors in this range. It is a medium coverage concealer and it works well to conceal my undereye circles and it has replaced my MAC prolongwear concealer as it is much cheaper and does the same thing. Just make sure to moisturize your undereye area and set with powder after using this concealer.

NYX Eyebrow Gel in Espresso: I have a lot of hype regarding this gel because it's supposed to be a dupe for the Anastasia brow pomade/gel. I don't know if it is a dupe since I have never tried the brow pomade before. I kind of messed up brows last week while trimming so I need this gel to fill in my brows and make them look normal.

NYX eyeshadow in Dance the Tides: I picked this up after hearing that this eyeshadow is a dupe for MAC "Saddle" eyeshadow. You can never have too many transition/crease eyeshadows!

L'Oreal La Palette Nude 2: This was kind of an impulse buy because I don't need another palette in my collection but my excuse is that I don't have many mauve/rose e/s. This retails for approx. $20 and I got it on sale for about $12. I saw swatches online and this palette looked promising so I can't wait to start playing with it. On the back of the palette, there is a guide that shows 4 different looks you can do. This is very helpful for beginners and people who need an idea of how to pair these eyeshadows together.

I can't wait to start playing with this makeup and I'll be sure to include my thoughts on these items in my next beauty review.
