Ulta Makeup Haul

Last week, I posted a picture to my instagram with my Ulta haul! I have no had a chance to try everything out and I want to share with you what I thought! For the most part I am pretty pleased with the things I picked out!

(PS - I am hosting the Blog Baton tomorrow! Follow along on instagram!)

Ulta Makeup Haul

NYX Love in Paris Eyeshadow

1 - NYX Eyeshadow "Love In Paris": I loved the the pink tones in this eyeshadow, which is why I bought it! It reminds me just a bit of the Naked 3. I really like it so far - my favorite shades are the very middle one, the one on the bottom right and the one on the bottom left.

NYX Matte Finishing Powder

2 - NYX Mineral Matte Finishing Powder: I wanted to try a different way to set and finish my makeup look, and I love NYX. So I decided to try it. I love the product itself, but the packaging is a little lacking. Its almost impossible to take the top off without getting powder everywhere, which is disappointing. But I do love the matte look that it gives.

Batiste XXL Instant Volumizer

3 - Batiste Instant Volumiser: I bought this to compare it to the Big Sexy Hair version which is really similar. Overall, it works pretty much the same, but the price is better. I would buy this product again - it's easy to apply, works great, and is cheaper that Bid Sexy Hair volume powder. 

Physician's Formula Volume Boosting Eyeliner

4 - Physician's Formula Lash Boosting Eyeliner: I'm not a huge wearer of eyeliner, but once in a while I like to change things up. This is supposed to add volume and thickness over a period of 2 weeks. It will take longer than that for me since I don't wear it everyday but overall I do like this product. I like how precise this line is, and I like the packaging. I wish there were a grey color, but there isn't. So I picked the lighter of the 2 blacks. I usually always like Physician's Formula, and this was no exception!

Have you tried any of these products? What did you think?

  1. I'm glad to see that Batiste has a similar product to the Big Sexy Hair stuff that you talked about a while ago ... I'm still itching to give that a try, but now I'll definitely pick up the cheaper product. Maybe it will be in a hair tutorial soon for my Velcro rollers. :) Also, did the NYX powder have a clear sticker over the top of the powder holes? What I've done with powders like that is leave that sticker on, and then I poke holes in it to get the product out. It creates way less mess.

  3. I need a new eye liner and I could of wish I would have tried that one from PF while it was on sale at Ulta! I had no idea Batiste made a powder like that- but it's always nice when you find products that work well for a lower price!

  5. I'm gong to have to try that Batiste powder, does it leave any white residue behind? The tip of that eyeliner looks perfect for an easy application - I'm like you I don't wear it too often, but that looks easy to apply. Thanks for the review!

  6. It drives me crazy when product packaging makes you waste some of it by simply opening it. I do really like NYX products though!

  24. You always show me so many different make-up products I've never heard of before, which is awesome because I'm not one to be adventurous on my own! Your make-up always looks great when you post OOTD posts.
