Hey everyone! I decided to go look at some makeup today at Ulta, and picked up these fun three items. I had a coupon for a good 20% off the total purchase and I used that to my advantage with the Benefit Blush Bar palette. I have the original palette from them and LOVE it so much, I had to get the second edition. Also, lashes. I am obsessed with good lashes, and I saw Kiss cosmetics came out with a new Triple-Push-Up line so of course I had to pick up a pair.
So first off, can we please talk about this BEAUTIFUL piece of art!!!! If you haven’t had a chance to pick up the first one, I strongly suggest you at least pick up this one. For the price of $58 for 5 FULL-SIZE Benefit Hoola Bronzer, and four FULL-SIZE blushes, it’s honestly a steal. Just one full-size is already costing you $30. That’s why I didn’t want to just buy one of them, and waited to pick up this second palette because I would sort of feel like I wasted money on just one.
The downfall of this palette is that they didn’t make this available in the Hoola Light bronzer. I feel like they should have at least released a second palette option replacing the Hoola with the Hoola Light for the fair skinned makeup lovers. In the first edition, there was the Hoola and Hoola Light which was great for makeup artists! If you are fair skinned, but really enjoy this palette, you could use the Hoola as an eye shadow. I ended up using my Hoola Light as an eye shadow base.
I’m excited to try the new added blush in this palette, which is the Gold Rush. Look at the beautiful glow just beaming up at me. It’s so beautiful! The Dandelion is the completely matte blush, but you can easily top it off with one of the more high shine ones to give it a pop. Don’t fear it if you are more tan/dark toned. It doesn’t wash me out even when worn alone. It is a beautiful matte color and can be worn either way.
If you want my opinion on that little brush – I don’t have one.
I always try to pick up a value pack of Wispies when I can get a good deal on them. They are the original beauty essential in any every day girls bag. They are light, fun, and beautiful on the eyes.
Whenever I pick up any ulta glam pair of lashes, I always judge their beauty by turning the case horizontally so I am able to see the volume it gives from the side. The higher it goes, the more glam it is!!! These are SO voluminous. They have three layers to them, and I like how spread the lashes are. I’m not sure if I am using the right term there, but the style of the lash placements caught my eyes! Kiss Lashes always serve when they put out their glam lashes. Their Faux-Minx collection is also one of my favorites.
Thank you guys for reading, and I hope you enjoyed my little mini haul!
