I hope you are all enjoying this wonderful Saturday. I will actually be enjoying my nieces dance recital today and I’m pretty pumped! I always wanted to do dance as a kid, specifically ballet. It’s never too late though! I bet I could find an adult class or something.
Today’s post is an Ulta Mini Haul posts. I like writing these for you all for two reasons. One it gives you an idea of what’s to come on GrimmGirl even though I’m forever backlogged at least you know eventually these reviews will be coming. Two, I think it’s nice to see people’s staple products. What are the things people buy over and over again? You know what I mean?
I think you get a better feel for the type of products people really like that way. I mean I can review something and be like, “Yeah, that was pretty cool,” but the real test comes when I run out of it. Do I feel like I immediately need to go replace it or am I more like, “meh”.
Inquiring minds need to know.
So with this haul you will see some of the things I consider “must haves” for my makeup needs.
Real Techniques Beauty Blenders
I have tried other beauty blenders but I always have these on hand and have yet found a type that I like better! You can find these blenders all over my bathroom! I need them in constant stock.
Mally’s Must Have Collection Box
This is a completely new find. I will admit I had never even heard of this brand before but they’re cruelty free all the way through and my usual brands have been dropping like flies so I’ve been trying to branch out. Sad news for my vegan fans though, this line is not a vegan line. Since I’m branching out I liked the idea of a collection box or what the brand considers their “must haves”.
I mean if I don’t like any of the products that they feel are their top ones than this won’t be the brand for me. This collection box comes with their Evercolor Face Defender (sets your makeup), Shadow Stick Extra in Burnished Bronze (eyeshadow stick), Volumizing Mascara, and H3 Lip Gloss in Pink Daisy.
I’ll admit I’m not usually an eyeshadow stick sort of girl but I’m excited to try it out!
Juice Beauty Cleansing Milk
Super pumped about this new purchase. I’ve been trying to find a replacement for my makeup remover ever since I had to let go of my Urban Decay Meltdown remove. As you all may recall I tried PUR’s Melt Away makeup remover and while it did the job I am more of a lotion then an oil fan. So when I found this at Ulta I knew I had to give it a try.
PLLLLLEEEEAAAASSSEEE be good!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Pomade (Granite)
Another staple of mine! One of my favorite ways to do my brows so I need to have this in constant stock, I’ll rock an eyebrow pencil but the pomade is my favorite. Also of course it is in Granite because that’s the darkest color they have and I find it perfect for my skin tone and hair color.
Viva la ceja!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Duo Brush #14
You’ve got to have a brow brush if you are using pomade! I have in the past used a brow brush from the It Ulta series but I’m not overly attached to it. So when I saw this brow bush in the store I thought, “Eh… why not?”
Mally Ultimate Performance See the Light Concealer
Another brand new product to try! I always have dark circles under my eyes. In general I have trouble sleeping and that just gets worse when I’m stressed so a good under eye concealer keeps me from looking like a zombie. The problem is I haven’t been able to find one that I’m totally in love with. Hopefully this will be the game changer!
I’m always excited to try out new products! I hope to have some reviews coming to you soon although as I mentioned before I’m pretty backlogged so I wouldn’t except reviews on these specific products to happen right away. The problem is I keep buying more makeup before I get caught up on my backlogged reviews!
That’s pretty much how I am with everything on this site though so we really can’t be to surprised! Look at my manga, anime, and otome backlog… Don’t even get me started on the work I still need to do in my kdrama section!
I hope you all enjoy your weekends and let me know what products you’re hoping I review soon!
