So while I try to take it upon myself to have the weekends to relax and catch up the week’s events, nothing can put salt in your lemonade like a badly placed sale from your favorite store. Check out this link: Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty sale
While to an ordinary shopper who is not makeup-focused, it looks like an awesome series of sales spanning over 21 days on a well-known makeup store’s website. To some of us, like myself, I was notified via generated text message from the company only a few moments ago. Although I did see someone make a YouTube video about it this morning, I didn’t get a sense of ‘omg’ until I looked at it for myself. As a Platinum Rewards member with Ulta, I was a bit surprised to see some of my favorite products on the list of makeup and skincare that will be on sale. Now….not just any sale, I’m talking 50% off!!!!
This is one of the sales that will definitely bring those who have been apprehensive about products and aren’t willing to pay those moderate-to-high prices, providing the chance to try those products they’ve heard so much about throughout social media. But for some of us……its like ‘Okay, should I be upset that I paid so much for my favorites or should I be happy that I can get them at half the price?’
I definitely plan on stocking up on some of my ‘go to’ makeup products. Either way, check out your local Ulta store or check them out online to see exactly which products are on sale. Who knows, it may be something that you haven’t tried yet 💝
While I have spent my share hours of my little life in front of a mirror, attempting to do my makeup before a date, important events, or just a day to cover blemishes, one trend that has gotten the masses out to the makeup aisles…..holographic and glitter makeup. Yes, dear reader, I am aware that your favorite YouTube beauty gurus have attempted to kill the holographic/glitter craze of 2017 but the reality is….it just takes some of us normal people time to come around to what the latest trend is. Sometimes the latest trends don’t fit into our lifestyle in which we have transitional time in which we come around to trying new makeup ideas. Other times, new makeup trends cost us not only our time, but extra money. That’s right, it can tend to put a dent in other everyday things that are standard so, buying new makeup can be considered a ‘treat yourself’ moment, let alone a product you have never used before.
Yes reader, just like some of you, makeup trends are a luxury to me and I have often passed them up and settled to watching a professional makeup artist use the latest products on their own faces while I observe for free. Now that time has passed and I have taken the initiative to engage some of the new holographic and glitter trends, I’d like to share with you some of my favorites in no particular order:
While this product is one of those ‘I don’t know’ things until you read all the good reviews or your friends start talking about it, you’ll quickly regret not getting it sooner. Priced at a reasonable $9.99, L’Oreal’s Infalliable Holographic Highligher stick is highly sought after in the shades Cosmic Pink, Astro Blue, and Galaxy Gold. While still exclusive, don’t get mad at me when you visit your local ULTA store and its likely to be sold out. This is a highly-pigmented, multi-use highlighter that fits wonderfully into your purse, bag, in the armrest of your car….you get what I’m saying girlie? This product can be applied to the brow bone as a highlight, over a matte eyeshadow, cheekbones, cupid’s bow…need I say more?
Now since L’Oreal has brought the makeup community a definite holographic series winner AND bought another cosmetic corporation for about $1.2 billion…maybe we can finally get those iT Cosmetics foundation shades expanded a little?🤨🤨😁
Now before you start, let’s be honest here…Wet-n-Wild has come a long way in the makeup community. While I have been a bit apprehensive about liquid highlighters, this one was something I couldn’t pass up. While available in you local drugstore, this highlighter can be bought just about anywhere. Why is it so amazing? Because its BLINDING!!!! Yes, highlighter overload if you don’t watch it, so a little goes a long way, which is a good thing. While priced at $4.68 on Walmart.com, this highlighter is a great way to start playing with the different way in how this can bring some ‘pop’ to your makeup routine.
When we talk about low-cost highlighter and fancy glitter lipgloss, one of the names that usually don’t come to mind is Urban Decay. With their impressive lippy-series called Vice, Urban Decay has brought a full spectrum of color to the makeup game. What they also did with the Vice series is provide us with the lip topcoats. These lipgloss-like toppers can be worn alone or over a matte lipstick, giving you that glitzy effect with hints of stunning color. Now….ready for the price? While originally priced at $18.00, these lip-toppers are on sale at your local makeup store (Ulta, Sephora) for $9.00! Gurl….what are you waiting for??? Get to Sephora 💕
