Another Mini Haul: Ulta!

I picked up some bits at Ulta yesterday as I was nearby and had a $3.50 off coupon. My local Ulta is usually really bad with their selection, and while they still had absolutely no new China Glaze or OPI, or Real Techniques brushes, they had redone the entire NYX section. Here's what I got:

They had a ton of Essence stuff on sale for 50% off as well.

On the left is Essence eyeshadow in #36 Knock Out. It's a matte so I know the pigmentation isn't great, but I tried it over primer and over Milk jumbo pencil and it was pretty good. It was also a buck.

The two right swatches are new shades of NYX Jumbo Pencils. Middle is Sparkle Green and right is Cucumber. I swore these off after how bad Purple Velvet and Lime were for me, but these new colors are different. They actually dry down and when you smudge them, the color doesn't go all patchy. I love love LOVE Cucumber. These were $4.49 each but all NYX was buy one, get one 50% off. The new colors are not listed on the Ulta website yet, unfortunately.

On the left is NYX Retractable Eye Liner in Silky Cashmere. I've looked at this every time I've gone in but never gotten it. This and the next one were also $4.49.

The middle is the Retractable Lip Liner in Nude. I've been needing a "my lips but better" liner for my kit and this is perfect.

On the right is Essence XXXL Shine Lipgloss in Wanted. So dirty -_-. Funny story about this is that after Jerry showed She-Zam dazzleglass from Mac, I wanted it so bad. This isn't as sparkly or quite as silver, but it's good enough for me. This was also... ready for it?... 1 dollar!

That's all for today -- hope you enjoyed!
