Ulta Haul - 3/25/2012

How is everyone doing on this calm Sunday night?

We had a quirky weather weekend here in the land of Michigan.  Rain, sun, cold, heat, you name it, it was here. It was also a busy weekend for Mr. R and I as we went shopping, cleaned the apartment, hung out with friends, ran errands.

Saturday brought about a small window of me time and that equaled to a haul at Ulta.  They are having their 21 days of Beauty.  To learn more about it, GO HERE.

Here is the damage... :)

Haulage - Ulta 3.24.12
They had a ton of big name kits on sale!  I decided to go with LORAC's Lashes, Luster, Liner kit ($29 usd) and Cargo's Fresh Face Complexion kit in Medium ($32 usd) This was on sale for $10 off!  [i will be making more in depth posts about these kits]

For skincare, I picked up Exuviance's SkinRise Bionic Tonic pads.  These are a part of my routine and cannot do without them.  From H2O, they had a b1g1 for their products, and I picked up the Oasis mist.  Just a normal mineral spritz I like to use in the summer or to remove any powdery look.

To end with the makeup, Urban Decay's Last Call shadow made it into my basket!  Along with lip liners and a soft matte lip cream from NYX, a LORAC Behind the Scenes primer that was $10 usd this weekend!!!!!  Benefit's Benetint balm was on my wish list...sorry for adding the Fresh Sugar lip treatment, that was from a Sephora haul two weeks ago that I had cast aside.

For the Urban Decay purchase, I received a deluxe De Slick facial spray.

As stated above, I will do individual posts about all the products shown.

What did you guys and gals haul this weekend?

Birchbox March 2012 (Back to Blogging!)

Hey guys and gals!

I am back.  Yes, it has been quite some time and I am back with Birchbox.  I am sure you are all aware of what Birchbox is (monthly sample service).  If not, please go HERE to learn more :)

On to the March Birchbox...

Birchbox March 2012

These past two months for me and Birchbox have been good, actually.  In this month's box, I received a full size Tarte Lipsurgence tint in Amused, a full size Essie LuxeEffects topcoat in A cut above, 10 pack of Shiseido blotting papers, sample vial of Annick Goutal's Petite Cherie and a twist band.  

I was extremely happy with what I got!  The topcoat is just over the top and the Tarte lip stain, although not a color I would have purchased on my own before, turned out to be a perfect color.

I have tried to sign up for myglam bag, but was not lucky or fast enough to get a subscription.  Do you all feel that these services are worth it?
