It’s catching up time again and let me show you what I got during the Black Friday madness! Just so you know, I didn’t really join the stampede on Black Friday as I was out and about on Thanksgiving night. I noticed that there were more great stuff the day/night before Black Friday than the actual Black Friday itself.
Also, I didn’t purchase a lot as I had my eyes on a few specific ones that I wanted to have. Most items I purchased are those that I know I will use a ton.
I will share my thoughts on some that I’ve used, while I will be introducing those that I haven’t put to the test.
I went to ULTA specifically for two items.
The first product that I searched the entire store was this Becca Blush Trio Palette ($17.00). There were only two of these palettes left (not sure if there’s two left or only two were intended to be sold at that very moment) but I’m so glad to snag one.
The other palette was open and swatched, luckily this was completely untouched. I noticed that the embossed “Becca” print is a little off but I didn’t mind because this will allow me to dig into the product without a problem. I’m not sure about you, but I’m one of those that don’t want to ruin the print/design of the product especially when it’s brand new.
I’ve worn the shade Wisteria a few times and it’s gorgeous.
The next item that I purchased at Ulta which became my new go-to product lately is the Tarte Double Duty Beauty Palette Play Live in Color ($12.00).
I am obsessed with an all in one palette as they are very convenient to carry around. This is compact, with a double-decker design palette that comes with a mirror, four wearable eyeshadows and a beautiful blush for an everyday use.
I only wanted one product at Sephora but I ended up getting three instead.
I don’t have any cream lipstick from tarte so I thought, this would be the perfect time to try one and since I am obsessed with the tarte blushes as well as the lights, camera Lashes mascara then why not? This Intro To tarte Deluxe Discovery Set only cost me $10.00 ($39.00 retail value), isn’t that a great deal?
I know the blushes I purchased are both in the same shade “Unstoppable” but I don’t mind because I love it a lot that it’s better to have more than regret later. 🙂
The Deluxe Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in unstoppable (peachy pink) is very natural on the skin and this Deluxe drench lip splash lipstick in living (nude mauve) is super smooth, creamy and non-drying too.
I had my eyes on this palette since it was launched and every time I try to purchase one, it’s always sold out. Luckily, they went back in stock just right around Black Friday so I was able to purchase one online. And since I am subscribed to Sephora flash, then I got to enjoy a free 2-day shipping which is even better.
Last stop,Artist Palette Volume 2 – Artistic.
I was drawn to this palette because of it’s color options. Also, when I swatched them at the store, they felt amazing so I thought for only $25.00 it’s even better. I’ve played with some of the shades in this palette and hey! the pigmentation is awesome, non-chalky and super blendable too.
