ULTA Haul.

Hey everyone!
Sorry I haven't blogged in a while..school has taken over my life :(
I'm actually typing this up before I go to sleep :X


Anyways, I made a trip to Ulta and I'm starting to think they shouldn't have built a store near my house!! lol


Disclaimer: I bought all of these products with my own money. 


Now let's take a look to what I purchased :)


  • Hot Tools Pro Curls Spongy Rod Rollers
  • Real Techniques Blush Brush
  • Real Techniques Powder Brush
  • Real Techniques Stippling Brush
  • NYX Stick Blush in Hibiscus
  • O.P.I. nail polish in In My Back Pocket



     Real Techniques Brush
    As many of you already know, Real Techniques Brushes were developed by Samantha Chapman a.k.a Pixiwoo. If you watch their tutorials you'll notice they use these brushes often.


    First off I haven't used these brushes yet, but all the reviews I've read have spoken highly of these products.


    I was looking to invest in some new brushes and these seem to be the perfect alternative to high end brushes.



    You really are getting what you pay for with these brushes! The bristles are super soft and the handle on these brushes are larger then all my other brushes. (M.A.C & Sigma)


    I need to amp up my brush storage area just to fit these puppies!



     NYX Stick Blush in Hibiscus


    This new product from NYX hasn't gotten much hyped but I'm a big fan of NYX so I said why not!


    I did swatch the testers at ULTA and alot of them did have shimmer. The packaging matches the product color. 


    When I swatched Hibiscus I knew I had to try this one out first. I might go back to pick up a pink shade but we'll see.


    NYX Cream Rouge Blushes don't break me out so I'm hoping this product won't neither. Over all it is pigmented and is completely matte.


    O.P.I's In My Back Pocket


    I wandered to the clearance section at ULTA and I was lucky enough to find this beauty!
    This color is the most perfect tangerine color! I am not sure of the application but I hope it is not streaky and that the color is opaque.  


    What are you lastest purchases from ULTA?<3 Catalina

    2. Oh I need to check out my Ulta for those brushes! They remind me of Sephora's brushes. And I have one of those NYX blushes too, they are pretty and looks natural on.
