I Heart Ulta...And Sales

Would you believe me if I told you that I didn't step foot into an Ulta until last year? Now I'm a card carrying member, and I live by their sales. Full price? Nah, but when it's 21 Days Of Beauty or some other promotion, I'm totally in! This is why I went a little nutso two weeks ago...I also blame Shanna, "Because Shanna Said So". She told me my life would change from using some of these, and she was right.









Not Your Mother's Dry Shampoo is the ONLY dry shampoo that can hold a candle to good old baby powder or corn starch. Not only does it get rid of the oil, it smells great, doesn't leave a residue, AND adds volume. VaVaVOOM!
Physician's Formula Warm Nude Palette may be my favorite eye shadow ever. Someone gave me the Classic Nude palette, which I liked, but Warm Nude is more my color. Don't ask me what that really means, because I'm really not that good at this stuff. Just trust me.
Physicians Formula Powder Palette in Healthy Glow is my go to bronzer. You don't want to overdue it with this stuff, but that's the good part. It doesn't take much and by picking and choosing the colors you use, it can be very versatile.
Maybeline Falsies Mascara has great coverage, and I can usually find it B1G1.
Wigo Brush has only been used once, but it seemed to work great considering I have no clue how to tease my hair. Why did I buy this?
Ulta Lip Liner in Rustic was $2 bucks on sale, so I now consider it amazing. I think it's only the second lip liner I've ever tried, but it was fun getting a little artsy fartsy with it.


The only product I didn't like was the Mario Badascu Face Lotion SPF 30, and it is going back. Thank goodness for their return polo]icy, because this stuff made my face and chest look like a pizza pie. What does everyone use for Protective SPF lotion? I'm tr'yna not get skin cancer, but any lotion other than Clinique's Moisturizing Gel makes my skin freak out. Seriously, why does skincare have to be so flippin' difficult?

I've never been to Ulta...oops

Dawn Brown said...

I've never been there either! I have issues with my skin too... I can only use cetaphil for lotion & face wash. It's the most frustrating thing!

Pamela said...

Yesterday was the first time I have ever been in an Ulta store! Almost a little overwhelming, ha!

ulta is the BEST! I love it so much! They have so many great products!

I just started using Not Your Mother's dry shampoo, it's about the fifth one I've tried, and it's tied for #1 with Herbal Essences of all things.

I use Neutrogena clear sunblock.

We must be on the same wavelength because I was *just* at the Ulta site looking at the Physicians Formula sale!

Nicole said...

We actually didn't have one of those until about a year ago so I didn't know what it was either.

I LOVE Ulta! I just did a little splurge there not that long ago and got a ton of free stuff too. Great store!

Mandie said...

I've never been to an Ulta & I've never tried dry shampoo...however, I am now intrigued by both. Hmmm...

Kodi Jensen said...

I use Cetaphil's SPF moisturizer, it's gentle and works!

Cayla said...

I just made my first Ulta trip last summer. And the dry shampoo, yes! LIVE off that stuff. Fyi, if you're ever in a bind and can't make it to Ulta, they carry it at Target too :)

Amy @ No Longer A Dreamer said...

I like Aveeno moisturize. It has a sensitive skin option and has spf!

Ashleigh said...

I love Ulta..

Jaclyn @ Love And Bellinis said...

I love that physicians formula bronzer, it's the best!

Sarah Alway said...

I'm totally going to check out that dry shampoo, I am on the hunt for a good brand!

Kerry @ Till Then Smile Often said...

I love the Not Your Mother's Dry shampoo. I do like Neutrogena for SPF.

Kenzie Smith said...

I've never been to Ulta but both you and Liz are making me REALLY want to go and spend all of my monies there. Love your beauty haul! I have been wanting the physicians formula eyeshadow for ages now!!

Rachel said...

I have never been to an Ulta before! I've been using the "Yes to" line for facial sunscreen, I just get it at the grocery store or drugstore, but it's one of the mineral-type suncreens and it doesn't bother my skin, which is why I stick to it!

An old friend of mine is a hairstylist at Ulta. I started going to her when we reconnected on FB a couple years ago and every time I go I end up spending TOO MUCH on perfume! There are just so many! haha
