I got both my LM order and my Ulta order in the mail today! Yaaaaaay! I'm still feeling a little under the weather so this at least cheered me up.
I never really order from Ulta but they were having their 21 days of beauty sale and I just couldn't resist. Plus, shipping was free with a $25 purchase.
The first thing I got was the Cargo Blue Ray Pressed Powder in 20 Medium. This powder was highly recommended by saaammage so I thought I would give it a try and I've been meaning to pick up a new powder. AND it didn't hurt that the powder was 50% off of the original price ($30). This was apart of their 21 days of beauty sale and I also got a freebee.
The pigmentation of this powder is great. This is just after one swipe and you can tell that it works. The texture of the powder is smooth and really creamy. I plan on wearing this over my foundation. I've read in a couple of blogs that this powder can appear cakey if not applied lightly.
I have always heard really good thing about all NYX products and I've been meaning to try them but it's really hard to get my hands on some. They're a really good value for the quality that you are getting. This is my first cream blush from their line and I got it in the color Boho Chic (Rs 650). It is a nice pale pink shade with subtle silver glitter which gives you a nice dewy natural look. The color is really light and it was reallyhard to swatch on my skin.
The last couple of things I bought were the NYX round lipsticks. I bought them in the shades Rose Bud, B52, and Milan. This is my first time buying the lipsticks and I really like them. The texture is really creamy and they do not dry out your lips. I didn't know which shades to get so I checked out a couple of swatches online. The shades that I picked up were very similar. I got a total of 4 NYX products because they were having a buy one get one half off sale.
ANND of course my 3 free samples!
