I really don't think you'll be disappointed with anything in your order. I have tons of stuff from Nyx and I can honestly say that that there's not one thing I don't like. Let me know how you like the lip stain when you get it.

 

 

 

 

Not over the moon about the stain- It lasts okay (there's still color after I eat), and the color is really nice, like a slightly pinker natural lip color, but it tastes terrible. It takes about 5 minutes to dry down and that's enough time for the taste to fade, but it was certainly a shock the first time I tried it :)

 

Otherwise, I love all the shadows I got (Lustre and those in the Countryside free bag)- I tried them today with a primer and they've lasted and blended together really well. And the blush, mascara, and lip gloss in the kit were great, too.

 

The brushes in the free kit are terrible.

 

I ended up returning the Nyx palette- I got a couple of the Pixi/ Pop palettes from HauteLook, and didn't need that much shadow right now. Plus, the pans in the Nyx set were tiny.

 

Overall, thrilled with my first purchase- With the free bag, I feel like I got SO much stuff :)

Here's my order!

 LL

 

 

The whipped shadow is a little...complicated for me? lol, it got everywhere and looked really messy so I ended up blending it with a powder. How do you apply it hezzie? 

 

The lipstain is ok, it has a very sweet smell when you first apply it and the color wasn't great, but a second coat and the color payoff was great!

 

Obviously we all know what comes inside the purple cosmetics bag now!

I haven't used all of it yet but so far so good. The free stuff is OK. The eyeshadow is a little disappointing. I have other Ulta e/s and they're great, the pigmentation on these is mediocre but they're good if ur going for a subtle look. I like the mascara, it does actually make my lashes stand out.

I agree about the brushes. The only thing I might use is the sponge tip applicator. That could be good for cream e/s.

I haven't used this particular cream shadow yet, but I do use cream shadows in general and I usually find it easier to use my finger. But I was thinking that the sponge tip applicator that came with the free stuff might be good for application.

I tried using a sponge at first but just ended up with my finger, lol. It was definitely a different consistency than any other cream I've worked with before, I think its the "whipped" part.

Yah I did notice that. But once it dries it stays on there for a while. I swatched it on my hand and it was on there all day lol

I think I'll for sure get used to it, I just need to not put it on in the mornings when I'm running late for work, lol.

Since I immediately started using most of my Ulta shipment within a day of getting it, I'm not sure pictures of my products would look that nice. icon_eek.gificon_lol.gif I was going to share photos until I looked at my open nail buffer and thought, "Well, that doesn't look too pretty." icon_lol.gif I have a closed one too (I bought two) but, eh, I found my shipping notification email and that showed all the products I bought/the price, so I'll share that instead. I copy and pasted it onto MS paint. LOL.

 

Everything came up to $66.09 after tax. Free shipping. biggrin.gif

I've been using them off and on for the last 2 years. My skin always looks gorgeous after I use them and not as good when I slack on buying them. It's nearly a "Holy Grail" item, if not a holy grail item for me. I'm rarely without them. Super recommend!

Today has been all about Ulta! I finally did the reviews and swatches on the Paradise Bloom and Lavender Fields on my blog.

 

I even did TWO FOTDs for both palettes!  LOL Trying to figure out what I want to do with the dupe eye shadow and mascara though, I have too much stuff as it is! I don't need to have dupes!

I got the orange free kit 2 weeks ago and I have been using the blush every day and the lipstick every other day or so, its a really nice neutral color on me. I rarely use mascara but the one in the kit works just fine for when I do. I do think the eye shadow sucks, I dont use it at all. I havent even opened one of the eye shadow quads, and may put it up for trade on MT. The brushes are ok, no problem using them. I did buy 2 ulta lip sticks that I really like both in coral colors. And an eye liner, which I like as well. I def have to buy the liquid eye liner some of you discussed. Cant wait to try that!

I don't really like the brushes but in a pinch I guess they would be OK. The eyeshadows are not impressive. But I think for a soft subtle look they might work. Sounds like you got some nice stuff tho. I've used the liquid liner 2 or 3 times now and I love it.

I stopped by my local Ulta yesterday and they had all of the Sue Devitt items 75% off. I never really tried anything before but I picked up a few of the eye intensifier pencils and the gel to powders blushes. Everything was really lovely and great quality.

I have a 3.50 one right now and I feel like I can break my no buy if it means using that...but I shouldn't.

haha! You still have to spend money to get the $3.50 off so it is technically breaking your no-buy lol I think we're all in the same boat right now.

NOT throwing shade, BUT...if you've broken it almost every day, are you buying MORE or LESS than usual? I'm just nosy.

    • We all know that hair fall is a very common problem for girls. A few months ago I had suffered from hair thinning and hair loss. I have soft, shiny and straight hair. It is so painful to see hair loss problem in reality. At that time my mum suggested me to contact with Bluedrake for my hair fall treatment. They provide some hair fall treatment. After that, I love this parlor and their nice service.
    • Found a really nice sub box for women of color called Cocotique. I am interested in getting it - it has really good value and new products I don't know about yet! They have past boxes on offer. The November 2018 box had a collection of traditional Indian beauty products called Reshma Beauty. There is a rose toner and henna hair products. Reshma is a really attractive and affordable product line. Just another on my long list of things to try.  Through the Cocotique links I also discovered the Palmer's Natural Fusions line which looks amazing! I didn't know Palmer's does sheet masks now, and they have a sheet mask for the body. It all looks great. 
    • My favourite is Belleme, because it’s made from natural ingredients and looks very nice! If you want, you can see list of Belleme cosmetics or others here: https://koreakos.com
    • I just give up on No Buy. I can't do it all the time, I have to be in the mood. It only works certain times. I always feel so awful after I mess up on a really long No Buy. This is the 4th time [2007, 2008, 2015 were my other long No Buys]. Then I go back to my old way and very fast undo all my progress and end up where I was before and even worse. It is chutes and ladders.
