I Popped My Ulta Cherry

I could have worked yesterday, but I figured that a fun day was worth more than the couple dolla's I would have made on a Tuesday lunch shift. I also knew that hanging with my girl Amanda {Aunt Amanda according to Weiser}, would be full of laughs and crazy Southern 'tude.

There was shopping, a grub fest, more shopping, ice cream, and I had my first Ulta experience! I know, I know, I am so far behind the times, but I have always been happy with my Covergirl eye shadow and mascara. I figured if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

So what changed?
Card.com sent me a FREE card to try out. I was skeptical at first, but they are legit, they are good for people that can't have or don't want a real credit card, they work great for direct deposit, merchants treat it like a real CC, and most importantly- your credit doesn't take a hit when you sign up. I used it to by this beautiful set, and I felt like I won the lottery!


Thank you to everyone that responded via text, Twitter, and email about whether I should go with Too Faced or Urban Decay. I heard equal thoughts about both, which just made my decision harder, and then Megan made it even worse by telling me about The Nude 'Tude palette that she uses. I was actually ready to order that one offline when I got home, but I found the Too Faced palette at the PX on post for $6 cheaper than anywhere else! I took it as a sign and raced home with my new BFF. I still think I want to get the Nude 'Tude palette, but my birthday and Christmas are in the next six months, so I can wait.
*Ahem William Bogert.

Anywho, I will be playing with my new BFF a lot in the near future, and I will share her awesomness soon. I LOVED how my eyes came out in the store, so I think that I will be satisfied.

Do you guys swear by a certain eye shadow?

I love eyeshadow. My absolute fave is Urban Decay. My go to palette is the Naked Eye Palette. It's rather expensive, but it is 1000% worth it. I also have the Vice Palette (from Winter 2012) and it has more colorful shades... also my fave!

I just noticed we have an Ulta store here.. Pensacola is just getting so FANCY! I've been glued to Bare Minerals for a long time! Enjoy your new products!

The man got me the Naked palette last V-Day so I'm loving that still. I'm just too lazy for makeup in the summer though.

Still haven't made it to Ulta but they seem to be popping up everywhere in my town. I'm also late on the whole sephora thing! Glad you liked it. And that Pizza looks amazing! Who needs work? LOL

Fun day! I'm curious to hear your feedback. I like sephora brand eyeshadows. I like Urban Decay too, but I've only had samplers of those. Drugstore I like Revlon.

For everyday makeup, I swear by the Naked and Naked2 palettes. In fact, I use Snakebite so often that I'm almost out! For fancier occasions, I use Bare Minerals with an eyeshadow primer.

Can you tell I like makeup yet?
