ULTA FOR THE HAUL-IDAYS

Friday, December 13, 2013

I have a combination post today- a Mood post small haul... I went to Ulta yesterday after going to pay off my bills for the month, and finishing up some of my last minute Christmas shopping. YES, this is last minute for me because the past few years I have been completely in control and done shopping for Christmas by December 1st!

Back to the shopping: I was walking around and found the Naked 3 to swatch, I swatch it, walked away, came back, walked away and this happened a few more times. I ended up leaving it. While I was doing that, I was observing two men (came in separately), who were (from what it looked like) shopping for women. The way they were looking around and reading the labels, I was impressed. They both even asked for help from the Ulta employees, who of course were pleased to help. All I thought about was my fiance shopping for me. When we were out at dinner last night I made sure to thank him for the "work" he puts in when looking for something to purchase or make for me. 

Some of you may be thinking that there is no need to thank your partner because we shop for them as well. However, I think differently. The way I see it is that I love to shop, and I don't get tired of walking around looking for the perfect gift or asking questions etc. I think men are built a little differently when it comes to shopping, so when I see a man really looking around and putting some thought behind their gift, I get happy. I know that is how Jose is, he really is interested in every little part of shopping, especially for his girls-daughter, mom and myself. Besides him having really good taste in everything, I really appreciate his gifts and wanted to make sure he knew that. 

Christmas time comes and everyone feels responsible for purchasing items for their loved ones. This Christmas I have really tried to stop and appreciate what I have and the fact that if I do get any gifts they will be gifts that I will love having but not things I NEED, because thankfully I have everything I would ever need. I am ever so thankful to also be able to gift those I love with things I hope they will enjoy. 

Ok, now that my Christmas rant is done, on to the small haul from Ulta. 



NYX Pore Filler

NYX Eye Shadow Base in Skin Tone

Discover it Kit Must-Have Best Sellers
I have been meaning to try out it Cosmetics, but haven't had the chance. I saw this at the counter when I was about to pay and thought I'd give it a try. It also came with a sample of their CC cream. All of the items for $19. 

Hello Lashes Mascara

Bye Bye Unders Eye Anti-Aging Concealer

Brow Power Universal Brow Pencil

Left: Mod About You
Right: Mimosas for Mr & Mrs
When I go to the salon to get my nails professionally done, I usually get Mod About You on my nails, so I wanted to purchase to have at home. 
The Mimosas for Mr & Mrs I thought was a must! ;)

  2. I completely agree with you! Whenever your significant other takes time to pick out something that they know you will like you should always show your gratitude! I work in a retail store and it's always so sweet when guys come in alone trying to find something for their girl! I had one come in once that wanted to buy some jeans for his gf. They had came in together a few days prior and she really wanted them. He had no idea what size to get her or anything. It was so sweet watching how dedicated he was to making sure she was happy!

    Have you seen this story: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152103137878200&set=a.10152103137523200.1073741832.60999753199&type=1&theater (Sorry for the long link, lol) This guy stood in line to get the Naked 3 palette for his gf because she told him that she wanted it but couldn't afford it!

  4. Would love to see a review on the Pore Filler as well. I've only tried the NYX shadow base, but I can't remember if I liked it, because it got lost in the back of my makeup drawer and then expired. :(

  6. I think it so sweet for a man to shop for his girl, especially in a makeup store, where I'm sure they are totally lost!!!!
