Ulta Haul: Makeup, Skincare, Haircare

I went into Ulta for 2 things and came out with all of this... Story of my life lol 

I've been loving my DryBar dry shampoo and dey conditioner but I heard the Living Proof dry shampoo was lifeeee so I decided to pick up a travel size plus I got this travel size freebie as a gift with my purchase! 
This is one of the things I actually went into Ilta for lol. These are the under eye gel mask. PTR has gold ones but I heard they dont do anything special they're just like any other ones plus theyre super expensive so I decided to pick these up because ot was only $15 and you get 4 sets. I'm excited to try these. Has anyone tried them before?
The hydrating masks are repurchases. I love hydrating sheet masks and my dry skin needs them lol. These also came with a free gift which is another sheet mask so I thought that was awesome. 
These I purchased based on a recommendation. I posted on Facebook I would be doing a haul and one of the girls said to pick these up, so of course I picked up the 2 nudes from the collection. I actually heard these are dupes for the Too Faced Melted lipsticks so I'll be doing swatches for you in another post!
FI-NA-LLY! I have wanted this bronzer since it came out and I finally purchased it. I seriously cannot wait to try this. I know I'm so late on the bandwagon with this one but I hope it's worth the hype. As a first impression I'm not 100% sure that I'll love it because I noticed it does have some shimmer in it and I like my bronzers to be matte, but we'll have to see!
This was a re-stock. I took this on vacation with me and by the time I got back it was gone. Once I run out of this one I'll have to purchase the full size. I LOVE this body butter.
This is also a restock as I ran out of my kiwi one. I wanted to try a different scent this time and I loveeee mangos so that was an easy decision lol.

I also purchased 2 bath bombs (the second item I went to Ulta for lol). I was debating on getting these or the cupcape bath bomb but these were on sale 2 for $10 and I think the cupcake was $10 alone so I figured I'd get more for my money with this deal. But I definitely want to try to cupcake bath bomb soon!
And lastly I ran out of shampoo and conditoner so I had to pick some up. I have never heard of this brand but the packaging caught my eye and it's sulfate free so I had to pick it up! My hair is dry and damaged which I why I purchased this specific one but they have shampoo and conditioner for all hair types.

Amazing Cosmetics Hydrate Concealer Review

Hi loves! I'm back with another review for you. This time it's Amazing Cosmetics' Hydrate Concealer. The packaging is soo luxurious on these! They're pretty heavy and have a beautiful metallic pink finish to them. The shades I have are Ivory (left) and Fair (right). These retail for $32 each and you can get them at Sephora. I found Fair to be a little darker than I expected especially for my pale complexion. I like my concealers to be about one to two shades lighter than my skintone so I can highlight with them. 
I'm typically not a fan of concealers in stick form because they tend to be very dry and harder to blend but the formula on these is so creamy and extremely blendable. The formula is also weightless so it doesn't feel like anything is there. 
Below are swatches Ivory (left) and Fair (right). 
When blended out, I would say this formula has light to medium coverage, making this perfect for no makeup-makeup days. These would even be good for just evening out your skintone if you dont want to wear a foundation and you have a little bit of redness or any discoloration.

Jane Carter Solutions Revive & Repair Hair Mask Review

After going blonde, I didn't really take care of my hair like I should have so it's slightly damaged and I'm trying to get it back to being healthy again. Recently I've tried the Jane Carter Solutions Revive & Repair Hair Mask which is a deep conditioner.
Doing a deep conditioner once a week is super important to me because it just makes my hair feel luxurious. It makes my hair feel so soft, smooth and revived again. This mask costs $11 and you can find it on her website here. You leave this on your hair for about 10-20 minutes and then when you rinse it out it leaves your hair silky soft! 

This is what the product looks like inside. It's white and has a normal conditioner smell. Scents are always really hard to describe! But it's just slightly thicker than a normal conditioner. I would suggest this product to angone who's in the market for a new deep conditioner to try. I've personally nevwr heard of this brand before but I always like falling in love with new brands. They also have an entire line for all different hair types so definitely check out their website to see if your hair type is on there or if they have something to help with any hair issues you may have (i.e. Curly, frizzy, etc) .

Have you tried this brand before? What are your thoughts?

Smith's Rosebud Perfume Co Review

I always see the Rosebud Perfume Co. Lip products at the check out line at Sephora. I purchased their Strawberry tin as an impluse buy around Christmas time and it smelled so good and really hydrated my lips. I wanted to try more from this brand to see if their formulas hold true for all of their products. 

Above is the Brambleberry Rose Lip Balm in tube form. This. Smells. So. Good! I really love that they have the option to have their products in a squeeze tube or a tin because some people like the tube and others like the tin. I personally don't have a preference, I think they're both great. The tube is perfect for traveling and the tin is great to keep on your vanity or right next to your bed. The formula on this is thick but when applied to the lips it transforms to a thin consistency. It's not sticky at all which I love! The tube form comes with 0.5 oz which is a decent size. This could definitely last awhile, but because it smells so good I'll probably use it 20 times a day so it might go quick for me!
Above is probably their most popular tin from what I've seen. I have seen this all over the internet before I even knew about the brand. Their tins have 0.8 oz which is a little more than the tubes and the consistency is a little thicker when applied. Both of these retail for $6 so they are pretty affordable! The strawberry tin I purchased was $7 and smelled AMAZING!

After trying these, I really want to stock up on the whole line! Have you tried their products? What are your thoughts on them?
