I can't resist a good freebie with purchase, plus I had a lot of points saved up at Ulta that I wanted to use so I made at purchase at Ulta!
The pink bag was filled with 17 samples and deluxe samples. It was free with a $60 purchase, so of course I wanted that. It came with a lot of cool things and it's been fun to try out all these new products. You can see what it comes with here.
Next I got the Anastasia Beverly Hills Shadow Couture World Traveler Palette. This is my first ABH eyeshadow palette, and I am impressed. I mainly wanted this palette because of Pink Champagne, and the color scheme seemed good for me. A good mix of wearable colors with some pretty pops of colors and a matte black. Surprisingly, the brush it came with is amazing too.
I got two brush cleaners by Japonesque in the Rosewater Scent. All their products were BOGO free and I was in need of a new brush cleaner. I really like these! The rose scent is so pretty and I feel like the brush cleaner is actually moisturizing my brushes. I like using brush cleaner in between deep cleaning.
Micellular Water is really interesting to me. I love the one by Simple. It's just water that takes off everything. I ordered this one by Boots called the All Bright Micellular Water. It has no fragrance, but it had a weird smell. The water seemed a little thicker than the Simple Micellular Water but it still did a good job at removing most of my makeup. Only problem was is that I think I am allergic to it. My skin is relatively good. I never get breakouts, but I noticed my cheeks were badly textured. I think this product irritated my cheeks, so I didn't use it last night and now my cheeks are normal. I'll probably return this.
I got two cheek products. I was super excited to see that Makeup Revolution was now being sold at Ulta. I've been eyeing their products for a while, so I decided I'd try a blush for starters. I got the Matte Blush in Beloved. It is so pretty. It's very pigmented and looks amazing. I'll probably be picking up more products by Makeup Revolution. The last thing I got was the Ulta Sculpting Palette in Muse. This handy product comes with a bronzer, highlight and blush. I got it for just $5. I was curious on how it performed, and so far so good!
