ULTA beauty haul- Makeup Revolution, Joico and Essence

Last week I took advantage of  coupons and free shipping to get some Pre-Black Friday beauty goodies. I got all of this for $37 shipped. Here are the details:

Makeup Revolution Reloaded Palette Newtrals 2, $7 – I bought this palette because it has good ratings and a reviewer said it was a dupe for Urban Decay’s Cherry Palette.

Makeup Revolution Reloaded Palette  Affection (online only), $7 – This looked great online but has too many sparkly shadows, I will probably return it.

Joico Travel Size K-PAK Deep-Penetrating Reconstructor $3 x 2 (normally $6.99 each)- I love this stuff! Perfect to use after a color service or to revive dry, damaged hair. K-Pak (I may get a commission from this link)  is made with amino acids that build the hair cuticle up, making hair strong and soft.

Essence Jelly Keen Powder Palette, $9.99 – I was looking to replace two of my favorite NARS blushes, Org$sm and Gaiety. Essence is an affordable German brand with favorable reviews, so I grabbed this palette. The 2 cheek colors, a peachy orange and a bubblegum pink aren’t as finely milled as NARS products, but the two colors are great dupes. It also has two complimentary highlighting shades.

Essence Banana Loose Setting Powder, $5 ($2.50) – Because Essence was buy one get one 50% off, I  got these next two items for half price. First, the banana powder. I always thought about buying a banana powder so I thought, what the heck. This powder isn’t very yellow, it look like a tinted setting powder. It worked okay, I’ll have to experiment with it further.

Essence Kiss The Frog Lipstick (also available in Kiss The Mermaid, blue and Kiss The Unicorn, purple, $3.50 each – I always wanted to try one of the PH lipsticks but didn’t want to shell out $20. These are more like lip balms (appropriate for kids too!) and not as fancy but still fun for $1.75 on sale.

ULTA Holiday Stocking Stuffers $2.99 or 5 for $5- Every year ULTA has these cute stocking stuffers you can buy in bulk for just $1 each. They can get pretty picked over in stores so they are a great add-on to an online order. I chose Marshmallow Mint Face & Body Mini Wipes, a 3-pack of nail files, a Vanilla Bean Bath & Shower Fizzer and two packs of glittery bobby pins (because I like glittery bobby pins).

I also got a couple a samples – perfume samples. I hate perfume samples 🙄. Oh well.
