Yesterday was my birthday, April 28th. I turned... just kidding! Don't you know us girls don't share our age. It's like a rule or something :-) Anyways, my husband and 2 little ones took me to dinner and out to do a little shopping. I decided I wanted to share my goodies here for others to see. Everything I got is affordable for any mommy.
( Excuse the quality of the pictures, my camera is on the fritz today so I had to use my Iphone camera.)
I ended up deciding on the Soap and Glory, Hand Soap lotion. I've heard so many people talk about this problem but I didn't want to buy the big size product, since it was a little bit on the pricey side, until I had tried it out. I got this smaller size for $5.00 and let me tell you, it smells so good! I'm already loving it just by the smell.
After Sephora, and making my husband wait for me to creep the products, we headed over to Ulta. I love Ulta, it is definitely my favorite place to buy makeup and hair products at. They always seem to have some sort of sale or deal going on and you get free products a lot of the time when you checkout. Plus, they carry high end and lower end makeup and hair products. Nobody loses when they go to Ulta!
I'm a pretty big fan of the Maybelline Baby Lip products. So when I saw this Baby Skin pore eraser I figured I should go ahead and give it a try. Plus it's mint green, and that's my color right now! The Revlon quad shadow is in "Sun Swept". These colors are so pretty! I am a neutral shades fan, mainly browns, when it comes to eye-shadows. Again, the mint sold me. Plus, I really like the light pink color. It'll go nicely with that brown in the crease and outer corner. The last product in the picture is the Revlon CC Cream. I have been wanting to try a CC cream since they came out several months again. I like BB creams and figured CC creams must be a little bit better. I'm wearing it today and so far it's doing a great job at hiding the redness on my face.
This NYX Butter lipstick is in the color Lollies. It's a very pretty pinky peach. This is definitely my favorite color out of the 2 I bought. It's perfect for spring and summer!
This is Sugar Wafer. It's a nice nude shade. It has a little hint of peach to it which I like. I don't look to good with plain ole' nude colors as I'm fair skinned so they tend to wash me out.
Like a champagne pink color. So
The last 2 products I purchased at Ulta were free! The first is the Calvin Klein CK One mascara. This was my birthday gift from them. It's a full sized product and a very nice product! I'm wearing it today and it made my lashes so long! The top of the wand decides weather you want longer lashes for the day or thicker lashes. You can twist the top and it changes the way the brush is set. I thought that was really neat. The other product I received for free was the It's a 10 miracle leave in conditioner. I love this stuff! I actually just bought a full size one a few weeks ago, so now I have this one to travel with which will be perfect!
Overall a very successful birthday and shopping trip. Especially since I got to spend it with the 3 wonderful men in my life (Hubby and the boys). Thanks for reading! I will be doing reviews over the next few weeks on some of these products, along with a makeup tutorial using these products.
