when a coupon leads to a haul...

Monday, April 4, 2016

20% off! The words a shopping addict loves to see, especially when those glorious words relate to Ulta. I'd been getting the itch to go beauty shopping for a while, so when that coupon landed in my inbox, the deal was done. I was going with the intent to buy, which leads to excessive purchases. Let's dive into the newbs in my collection...

The Urban Decay Gwen Stefani blush palette was 50% off so of course I grabbed that pretty little thing. I haven't tried it out yet, but I'd heard great reviews and the packaging is to die for. Even Steve thought the case was nice. However that was immediately followed by "I feel like you have all of these colors already". (They're similar not the same!)

I don't think I own a single thing from BareMinerals, but when I heard the buzz around their serum concealer I knew I wanted to try it. I feel like I've been on a quest for my holy grail concealer for years and still haven't found it, so fingers crossed for this one. 

Becca - love. 'Best Of' boxes - love. Minis - love. So I pretty much had to buy the Best of Becca Blushed Radiance set. I've been wanting to try the backlight priming filter foreverrrr so this was a great way to give it a whirl without a big commitment. And it didn't hurt that this set came with a mini pressed Opal, liquid Moonstone, and Flower Child blush. The minis are so stinkin cute and will be perfect for travel!!

Rounding out this hoard was a repurchase of the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara (I've missed that amazing wand!), a couple of new shades of the Maybelline Color Tattoo shadow crayons (Pink Parfait and Lilac Lust), and a Rimmel lip liner in Addiction (seems like a great dupe for UD 1993).

What are you most curious for me to do a full review of? I feel like the Gwen palette has about a million review posts floating out there, so I'll probably just do a quick snap of my impressions once I've used it (@shelikestoshop). I think I'm most excited to try out the Becca collection and the BareMinerals concealer, but I'd love to know what you want to hear more about.

Is it terrible that with the Sephora 15% off coupon coming up in a few days I'm already making a mental wishlist? In the running are this bronzer (like I need another), this palette (see previous comment), and this eye cream. I have a problem.
