Ulta and TJ Maxx haul. (:

Hello, lovely ladies.
I went to Ulta and TJ Maxx last Thursday(not two days ago Thursday) and picked up quite a few things and I wanted to share it with you guys!
NYX Glam Liner in “Glam Pink” :
Okay, so originally I wasn’t going to get this color, but they didn’t have the one I was looking for, so this was its substitute.
This eyeliner is amazingggg.
It goes on so smoothly, it has great color payoff, and it has really great staying power. It is sooo pretty.
NYX Glitter Cream Palette in “Bronze Goddess” :
I have heard SO many mixed reviews on these palettes, so I was really skeptical about this.
I really don’t see why people don’t like it. For me it stays really well, it has really good glitter payoff, glides right on, and the glitter is the perfect consistancy.
I love the colors in this. They bring out my blue eyes SO well.
This palette is absolutely GORGEOUS.
NYX Eyeshadow Trio in “Guru” :
UGH. I LOVE THESE TRIOS. These eyeshadows are so buttery smooth, the colors are so pigmented, and these colors work really well with my skin tone and eye color.
This trio won its way into my everyday love and go to spot.
NYX Candy Glitter Liners in “Silver” and “Mocha Latte” :
I usually hate liquid glitter eyeliners. I feel like I can never get the payoff I am looking for and the glitter chunks always hurt my eyes.
I now have a new found appreciation for them. These liners are spectacular. The glitter is just the right consistancy, it has great payoff, it stays put, they glide right on, I love the brush, and they have cute little tassles!
Ahhhh, I am such a sucker for packaging.
I am in love with these.
NYX Diamond Sparkle lipgloss in “Beige Sparkle” :
The picture shows it being darker than it actually is. It’s actually a beige-ish gold color.
This gloss is really nice. It’s really just average for me. I’ve used better, and I’ve used worse.
It isn’t sticky, the color payoff is decent, but it smells like crap. I hate when glosses smell cheap.
And it does.
“Cheap, Cheap”.
NYX Dramatic Chromatic eyeshadow pigment in “Sunshine” :
I finally got around to trying this today, and ohmyjeebus. It’s amazing! It’s such a gorgeous color. It’s a coral-ish, gold-ish, rose color pigment. The name is exactly what it is. It looks like sunshine! (:
It is shimmery, but it isn’t at the same time. It’s a perfect mix.
It goes on soft and smooth, it stays, it doesn’t crease, and it feels light on my lids.
I really want more of these!
NYX Sparkling Glitter Powder in “Champagne Bubble” :
Gosh! This is my first glitter pigment/powder and I love it!
The glitter is a fine consistancy and isn’t chunky, it’s so sparkly, it isn’t irritating to my lids, it’s very light, and I don’t get any fall off. I use just a very little amount and it goes a llloonnggg way.
It adds just the right amount of dazzle when I use it! (:
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure nail polish in “Snow Globe” :
In case no one has noticed, I have recently developed an obsession with sparkly. Me likes de spawrkles.
This polish is nice. I wanted something with thick glitter chunks to use as a top coat over my polishes. It has rainbow reflects glitter that looks silver until you get it in the light and then it’ll change to all sorts of colors.
This does what I want it to. It’s alright, I suppose.
It’s really thick and takes awhile to dry, which is never a good thing for me. I’m clumsy and if my nails aren’t dry, you can bet they’ll be messed up in a heartbeat.
Maybelline The Vivids lipstick in “Pink Pop” :
I’m not really sure how I feel about this lipstick. There was a ton of hype about these, but I don’t see it.
I love the color, but for me it takes a little building up to get the desired color I want from it.
It’s a vivid(obviously) Barbie pink lipstick. I love how the color looks on me, once I build it up that is.
I don’t know, I’ll have to use it more before I can really give accurate input on it.
Maybelline Super Stay 24hr foundation in “Sand Beige” :
Okay, everyone hated this foundation. I left my old foundation laying down(I was using FIT Me by Maybelline in 120 as a reference) and it spilt everywhere, so I got this as a replacement.
I REALLY don’t see why people hate this foundation because I am in LOVE with it.
It doesn’t look cakey like every other foundation I’ve used, it goes on flawlessly, it stays on, it has decent coverage, it doesn’t feel heavy, I like that I don’t feel like I’m wearing it, a little goes a long way, and I like the consistancy.
I don’t really see a problem with this foundation. It’s one of the best drugstore foundations I have used.
It is a perfect shade for me and it is definitely my new go to foundation! (:
Maybelline Clean Express wipes and liquid makeup remover :
Okay, I have used other makeup removers, but NOTHING I have used compares to these two.
The wipes feel so gentle and they don’t irritate my skin, like most removers do. The liquid remover is PERFECT for getting off my waterproof mascara.
Granted you have to shake the bottle to mix the product, and I forget to do that already. lol
They smell great, it doesn’t take work to get my makeup off, and they’re super gentle.
Definitely my new favorite makeup removers.
I highly recommend them!
So, that is all for this haul, you lovelies!
Let me know if you want any swatches of these products and I will be sure to get them up for you!
