You know the moment when you walk into a beauty store with an intention of buying one thing that you came for and walking out with a bunch of other stuff that you technically don’t NEED? I know I do and it happens to me all the time!
Last Friday I went to Ulta because I wanted to buy a new soft brown eyeliner that I could wear to my friend’s bachelorette party. I knew I wanted one from Urban Decay as I have a few of their 24/7 eyeliners, I just wasn’t sure what shade to pick. I had a hard time deciding because there are at least 5 or 6 soft brown shades, with glitter and no glitter and they all looked really pretty. Eventually, I settled for UD 24/7 Eyeliner in Corrupt which is described as a “dark metallic reddish brown shimmer with silver micro sparkle”. The shade is gorgeous and a full review is coming up on the blog later this week.
When I was at Ulta I also realized that I needed a CND Stickey Base Coat as I almost ran out of mine and I use it every time I paint my nails. I also grabbed a pair of false eyelashes from Ardell in #110 as I really need more practice applying them. I only tried applying false eyelashes once and although it wasn’t as hard as I had thought, I needed a more natural looking pair.
The last thing that I purchased, although I really didn’t need it, was a red lip liner from NYX Cosmetics in #813 Plush Red. I have wanted to try wearing red lips but I am scared that red lipstick would look too bold on me so I thought I’d ease my way in with wearing the lip liner with some clear lip gloss to get used to it. This liner was only $3.50 so I wasn’t risking a lot. Surprisingly, I really love the color and I wore it to my friend’s bachelorette party and it went really well with my brown/bronze eye makeup and I got a lot of compliments!
Now, it’s your turn. I want to know what was the last makeup/ beauty related product that you bought? Was it a planned purchase or was it more spontaneous? Are you happy with the product? Looking forward to hearing from you in the comments below.
