Didn't know what to do with myself yesterday and the weather was perfect so I decided to visit Ulta and came home with more than I anticipated.
Ulta products were on sale for buy 2 get 2 free. After sniffling all of their fragrances, my daughter and I agreed that the Mandarin Mint was the one that smelled the best. It's got a fresh fruity citrusy scent that isn't too sweet. I can barely detect the scent of mint but it surely smells more orangy. We got two body scrub, a lotion, and shower gel. They are regularly priced at $9.50 each but with the sale $19.00 for all 4.
Calvin Klein Long Wear Cream Eyeshadow in the shade Reef, $18.00. This is a very bright and slightly shimmery chartreuse eyeshadow. I believe it is limited edition. I think this color is perfect for summer. Will add a nice pop of brightness to your eyes.
Stila After Glow Color Vivid Violet, originally $18 but currently on sale for $12.00, which is approximately a 33% discount. I actually didn't even know it was on sale until I looked at my receipt. The sales associate approached me and asked me if I would be interested in checkout these new lip colors because they supposedly glow in the dark. I thought that was kinda cool, even if I know I am most likely not going to wear these out at night, lol, but for those who do and want to get noticed, you might want to pick up one or more of these. There was a bright/neon pink shade I was really tempted to get but I think I'd get more wear out of Vivid Violet so I thought I should try this one first to see if I like it.
Of course, she had to talk my daughter into buying this foundation, the Stila Perfect & Correct foundation Tone, $44.00. That is way too much moola spent on a foundation for a 16 year old. I didn't start wearing high-end makeup until I was in my late 20's. I almost wanted to faint, this really racked up my total. Anyways, my daughter begged me to get it. She tried it on and it looked very light and natural on her so ok. Next time, I just am not going to take her shopping with me. She's making me spend more than I need to. My daughter is a bit darker than me so she usually wears medium, which is not a good match for my skintone. I swatched it just to get a feel for it and it's got a light airy texture and feels moisturizing with a semi-matte finish. I think this might work for people who only want light coverage and just enough color to even out skintone. Anyone tried this foundation?

I scored these two Layla polishes on clearance for $4.99 each. I was ecstatic! They typically retails around $10.00 each.
I guess I just don't know when to stop. I picked up another glitter polish, Piggy Polish Never Hide, $7.50. I mean just look at those glitters. It's hard to resist. I had to bring it home.
Prestige Totaly Intensity Lively Turquoise, $5.99. Ok, you must think I'm on a turquoise kick, but I swear this was not intentional. I think this is a new shade. I haven't seen that one before.
Another product my daughter picked up, Ardell Accent lashes 305, $3.99.
So that's the damage for this weekend. Have you hauled anything? How are you enjoying the weather?
