Take All My Money – State Tax Return Edition

Today my bank account was graced with the presence of my state tax return *angels singing*. Needless to say an Ulta trip was necessary on my way home from work. Here is my bounty!


Maybelline The Falsies Mascara – “Black Drama”, Waterproof

I only just realized that I got the waterproof version of this mascara so woops! I usually don’t go waterproof for whatever reason so this will be interesting. I tried this mascara once before due to Tanya Burr’s undying love for it & wasn’t overly impressed, but she insists on the packaging with the lace & I’m in the market for a new mascara so I figured, ah what the heck!

Jane Concealer – Light

Let me start off by saying that this concealer does not look very light in the tube. Casey Holmes likes this concealer & her under eyes always look flawless so I picked this up in hopes for similar results. Will report back about the color!

NYX Blush – Dusty Rose

Been searching for a good rose color for my cheeks & I think this is the one! I am spoiled enough to usually reach for a high end blush but I wanted a drugstore option, and I have had great success with the NYX shade “Taupe” for contouring.

OPI Nail Polish – A Definite Moust-Have

Found this beautiful pink shade in the clearance section. Thinking it will help usher in some feelings of Spring! We are getting to that point in Winter when we feel like spring may never come so I need a pick me up, probably on my toes!

OPI Nail Polish – I Sao Paulo Over There *Brazil Collection*

This shade was featured in a photo on the OPI Instagram feed and I immediately knew I needed it. It appears to be a creamy, medium gray shade & I cannot wait to wear it! I’m a sucker for a good gray polish.

Katy Perry Color Pop Lashes

These little individual lashes were also a clearance section find – these lashes feature strands of color!I believe there are blue, purple and green ones. These will be fun to add a little something special to a look without trying too hard. I have tried other KP lashes & loved them all so I know I will love these.

L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow – Burst Into Bloom

As a brown eyed gal I love purple on my eyes. I usually will stick to a liner to add color but my boyfriend has been encouraging me to do a more full on color look with my eyes. I have a couple of these shadows already & am obsessed with how creamy and shimmery they are – I use my finger to swipe the color over my lids & blend the crease & I’m done. I’m not kidding, it’s that easy. It’s a simple couple steps that look like you put lots of time into your makeup but little does everyone else know…!

Maybelline Color Tattoo – Painted Purple

Color Tattoos are awesome. Like the L’Oreal Infallible shadows I feel like they’re so easy & pack a punch without being too much work. This color is so gorgeous & I can’t wait to use it on it’s own or as a base under other shadows.

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

I am a Beauty Blender lover. However, I am not a lover of their price. How in the heck have I been duped into spending fistfuls of cash for little sponges?! At $6 I couldn’t resist trying this little guy, which has been getting amazing reviews by YouTube ladies.

Between some clearance finds & the usual $3.50 off coupon I did pretty well for a spur the moment, literally grab whatever caught my eye, shopping spree. There will most likely be a part 2 when my Federal return comes…stay tuned & happy shopping!
