Make-Up Haul: Ulta & eBay

Hi beauty lovers! My package from Ulta FINALLY came in *shrieks* ahhh! I'm extremely excited to try all these products, but before I do, I want to share with you what I purchased. I got a total of 11 products for under $100. Because I spent over $50, I got a free complimentary gift. Gotta love Ulta! Overall between Ulta and eBay, I spent a total of $90.

Any way, first, let me start by saying all the products I purchased I have heard wonderful things about which is why I decided to try them. I purchased the NYX Proofit waterproof eyebrow primer (which I believe is new to the market), the Smashbox Try It! kit (which comes with 5 travel size pieces and the price is incredible!), Olay Total Effects Blemish Control, and lastly Olay Nighttime Moisturizer from Ulta. I also bought the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, the Stila Stay All Day eyeliner, and a Mac lipstick in the color Crème Cup off of eBay (I will be doing a blog later in the week about purchasing things off of eBay for those of you that are skeptical on it).


Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (travel size) comes in a pinkish, silver packaging. The bristles are spread apart to prevent clumping which we all hate so much. I got this product for $6 on eBay.





Stila Stay All Day Eyeliner (travel size) in color Intense Black. This eyeliner has a felt tip, making it easy for a winged eye and a smooth finish. I got this product for $12 on eBay. I couldn't wait to try this one out so I actually just used this today - here is the finished product after playing around (I do wear contacts, but they're clear - this is my real eye color):



MAC Lipstick in Creme Cup is the perfect nude pink for those pouty lips. I absolutely adore this color. This product I got on eBay for $22.


From Left to Right:
NYX Proofit Waterproof Eyebrow Primer I believe is a newer product to the market. The description on Ulta states it is colorless, but right out of the package it almost looks like a gray color. That sort of scared me, but I rubbed in into my skin and it goes on transparent. This product was $6.99.

Smashbox Limitless Eyeliner Crayon in Onyx is almost like a dark charcoal gray, almost black - and difficult to get off. That's definitely a good thing, but now I have a faded black line on my hand from trying it out lol. This product came in the Try It kit for $19 which is a $52 value! What a steal!

Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Illume is the perfect color. It's like a gold-nude. This is perfect to go over a nude lipstick. This product also came in the Try It kit for $19 which is a $52 value!

Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer that comes in a nude/beige color. This product also came in the Try It kit for $19 which is a $52 value!

Olay Regenerist Night Recovery Cream (moisturizer) smells like fresh lavender. I was definitely expecting a bigger package for the price, but I've heard wonders about their face creams. I guess I'll find out if it's worth the hype shortly. The package is only 1.7 oz and it claims to moisturize, soften, and improve appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I got this on sale for $18.69. The original price is only a few dollars more at $21.99.

Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 Blemish control smells a lot better than most facial cleansers. It comes in a sleek black and beige package. The package claims to deep clean, minimize blemishes, reduce fine lines, improve appearance of pores, gently purify, soften skin, and give a healthy radiance. I got this product for $5.94. The original price is about a dollar more at $6.99.


Smashbox Photo Finish. I have been dying to try this product and finally with the Try It kit I can try it out without having to splurge on the full size. This product is clear and oil-free. This product also came in the Try It kit for $19 which is a $52 value!

Smashbox Full Exposure mascara in Jet Black. The bristles look perfectly spaced out to make sure your lashes get full. This product also came in the Try It kit for $19 which is a $52 value!

Lastly, the three small gifts from Ulta I received are the Agave Healing Oil Treatment for your hair, Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream, and The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream.

I hope you all enjoyed seeing my make-up pick-up and I can't wait to share my reviews with you all once I try them :)
