Two New Lip Products & General First Impressions

by - Saturday, September 15, 2018

It's the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty, and this season's sale has seriously been a bummer for me because I've cut back on my makeup addiction and swore only to buy things only if I really really wanted it. I knew I must have wanted these two items if I left them in my cart for days without looking and then still wanted them when I came back a week later, but nonetheless, here's the only two makeup items I have picked up over the sale.

The first item I got was the Dose of Colors lipgloss, which I got for $10, a little over 40% off. I chose the color Can You Not, which is a pale nude pink. I was surprised at how opaque the lipgloss was, but other than that, the lipgloss itself feels a bit heavy, but not too bad.

The second item I got was the Beauty by Popsugar Sweet Stx Satin Matte Lip Color in the shade First Kiss (which was half-off on either Thursday or Friday), which is a lovely mauve pink (as you can tell, I'm a sucker for mauve pinks). I have never tried anything by Beauty by PopSugar and actually didn't know they were in stores until I heard about it from Jen, who runs the beauty account Beauddiction after hearing about it on her Instastories (which is what happens most days since I unfollowed every beauty brand except for maybe one or two).  The Satin Matte Lip Color strangely feels a bit minty, much like the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms, but the formula is quite beautiful. It is matte and feels like velvet, and I love how simple but beautiful the outer packaging is. The Satin Matte Lip Color costs a little more because it is still a Hot Buy, at $12 instead of $10 and is almost sold out as they only have one color left.

The other two items in my haul were body washes, but I won't go over those because I need those (I go through a horrific amount of body wash per month), but they were from the Ulta own brand range and I got the scents White Flowers and Simply Clean.

Did you pick up anything from the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty sale?
