Ulta Haul | Feat. MAC, L.A Girl and More!

Ulta Haul | Feat. MAC, L.A Girl and More! L.A Girl Blush in "Just Natural"  Models Own Highlighter in "Golden Sand"  MAC Blush in "Melba"  L'oreal Lash Paradise Mascara  MAC Lipensity Lipstick in "Driftwood"  IT Brush for Ulta Highlighting and Blending BrushI am back today with another haul! Ulta has been killing it recently with all of the new brand and releases. They added brands like MAC, Models Own, NARS, L.A Girl and more! They also recently gave out a coupon to platinum members for 20% off everything, including prestige, and with my rewards, I had to make an order! These are some of the things I recently picked up and I am so happy with everything! Keep reading for my review/thoughts!

The first item I'll be talking about is the L.A Girl Blush in "Just Natural". I would definitely describe this blush as natural, but it has a peachy undertone. I always wanted to try more products from L.A Girl, and I am so happy I picked this up. This packaging feels heavy and sturdy, and the blush is so soft. There is no issue with the pigmentation or the staying power on the face.

I have always been interested in trying something from Models Own , so I picked up their Highlighter in "Golden Sand". This is a beautiful golden highlighter, and you get a lot of product for the price. The packaging is really nice and simple, and a plus is that it has a mirror. I have been loving to use this as a highlighter, but also as an eyeshadow it's beautiful.

Even though I love makeup, I haven't tried many products from MAC. Now that Ulta carries MAC and with the coupon, I had a huge incentive to try some of their stuff. I picked up the MAC Blush in "Melba", which I remember was a classic blush to own. Interestingly enough, after swatching this, I realized it's very similar to the L.A Girl- I would definitely call these a dupe! However, the MAC blush has less of a peachy tone, and the texture is softer. I am really happy with this blush and definitely plan on picking up more shades.

This next product has been talked a lot about in the beauty community, and it is the L'oreal Lash Paradise Mascara. I am obsessed with this mascara! It adds to much volume and length to my lashes, and makes my lashes look so fluffy. Having the waterproof is also a plus because it doesn't melt during the day. Apparently, this is very comparable to the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, so let me know if you want to see a comparison post!

Another lip product I picked up is the MAC Liptensity Lipstick in "Driftwood." I am so happy with this shade! It's a beautiful natural color with a cool undertone. This lipstick is definitely very creamy and pigmented, so it feels and looks great on the lips.

The last product I picked up was the IT Brush for Ulta Highlighting and Blending Brush. These are some of my favorite brushes, but they are pricey so it can be hard to justify. This is essentially a very soft stipple brush which can be used for many things. I plan to use this for highlighter, blending out contours and applying concealer.

  2. Natural looks even prettier than Melba to me, definitely seems like a good alternative! I'm loving Lash Paradise as well :)
