Haul -- CCO & Ulta

Last Sunday, after I got off work, my sister and I decided to hit up the CCO and then afterward made a pit stop at Ulta. Thank God she was driving because it's quite a drive and I wasn't in the mood for it.
Aside from that, shopping is always fun.

Things I bought from the CCO
  • Estee Lauder Double Wear cream shadow - Silver Leaf, $12.25 (regularly $17.50)
  • Estee Lauder Double Wear cream shadow - Deep Orchid, $12.25 (regularly $17.50)
  • MAC Mineralize blush - Band Of Roses, $16.25 (regularly, $22.00)
  • MAC Mineralize SkinFinish Natural- Medium, $19.00 (regularly $27.00)
  • MAC Lipglass - Just Add Colour, $10.25 (regularly $14.50)

 I wanted to try some MAC paintpot but the CCO I went to didn't have any I like so I settled for these Estee Lauder cream shadows. Silver Leaf is a taupy color with subtle gold shimmers, ironically. Deep Orchid is a very deep vibrant purple.
Just Add Color is another bright fuchsia lip color to add to my collection. I just realized that Band of Roses was part of the In The Groove collection. I have most of the blushes from that collection, I think.

 Things I bought from Ulta
  • Essence Colour & Shine eyeshadow - Stage Beauty, $2.99
  • Essence nail polish - What do u think? $0.99
  • Zoya nail polish - Dannii, $7.00
  • Zoya nail polish - Caitlin, $7.00
  • Zoya nail polish - Shawn, free (buy 2 get one free)
  • NYX Nude on Nude palette, $24.99

I'm very pleased and impressed at the pigmentation of Stage Beauty. It's a beautiful shimmery light copper.

 Love getting those polishes when they are on sale. I just hate having to buy more than I really want just to get the discount. I wished Ulta carried more Zoya polishes.

This palette is new and very much reminded me of the Naked palette since it features neutral colors, which is great for every day wear. I love the fact that there is also a sliding compartment underneath that contains lipstick/lipglosses. It's great to take with you for traveling. You get 20 eyeshadows and 10 lipcolors. I will try to review this as soon as possible. Perhaps even compare it with the Naked Palette.

Hope you enjoyed this haul and thanks for reading.
