New Makeup Haul

January 26, 2017

Hello friends.  I thought that I would do a fun makeup post since I haven't done one in a while.

In the beginning of the year I love sorting through and organizing my makeup.  I throw out what is old, or what I have not used in a while.

After sorting through my makeup, I realized that I needed new mascara, eyeshadow primer, and dry shampoo.  I bought a new cover stick (concealer), and an eyebrow shaping set.

Here are the items I bought:

Makeup Haul @ Julie's Creative Lifestyle

1)  L'Oreal Volumnous Mascara - This is a new mascara that I tried and I love it.  My lashes came out  looking long and there is no flaking or clumping.  I like using black mascara and I sometimes use brown/black.  

2)  Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion - I never used eyeshadow primer util my daughter recommended it to me after she told me numerous times that my eyeliner was worn off and smudged in spots.  When I use this eyeshadow primer, my eyeliner stays on all day with no smudges.  I also like that my eyeshadow stays on all day as well.  I would defiantly recommend this product.

3)  NYC Cover Stick - I absolutely love this cover stick and I use this for under my eyes and around the top of my eye area.  I also apply this over my lips when I wear lipstick.  Doing that usually makes my lipstick stay on and last longer.  I also use a lip liner too. 

4)  Not Your Mothers Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo, Unscented - I love this dry shampoo and it's one of my favorites.  To read my post on dry shampoo, you can click HERE.

5)  EcoTools Brow Shaping Set - I like how the eyebrow brush works and I use it to brush my eyebrow hairs to stand up straight.  I like using the other brush to apply eye shadow, but this could also be used to apply color to your eyebrows.

I bought all of these beauty products at ULTA Beauty.  It was my first time visiting this store, and I really liked it.  ULTA Beauty has everything you need for all of your beauty essentials, at great prices. 

When was the last time you went through and sorted out your makeup?

Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy the end of the week and weekend.  Jess and I will see you all back here on Monday for our Cooking and Crafting with J & J Link Up!

Thanks everyone and enjoy!



  1. I do need to do this! Thank for sharing the new things you got! I love L'oreal mascaras and I've been wanting to try that one. I will check out the UD primer too! My girls know so much more about make up (and have WAY more) than I do!

  2. I am headed to Ulta today and I wanted to try a new mascara...thanks for the tip, Julie!

  3. I have been adding to my makeup collection recently too. I am in need of new eye shadow primer as well. It makes such a difference keeping your eye makeup looking good. I haven't shopped much at Ulta but I have heard great things about them. I need to get in there again someday. Have a fantastic Friday!

    Hugs, Vicky

  4. It is kind of fun to get new make-up, isn't it! There are soooooooo many choices!

  5. Ulta is a fun store isn't it? A little dangerous though! ;) I come back to the L'Oreal mascara often; it's probably been my favorite over the long haul. I'll have to check that cover stick. Sounds nice.
    Have a nice weekend Julie! xo Deborah

  6. I'm definitely checking out that cover stick. Maybe today I'll go to the new ulta that opened down the street a bit.

  7. I like these posts, Julie. I really like that mascara-I have been using that one for the last 6 months or so. I would really like to pick up the eyebrow kit though. I love Ulta!! They have EVERYTHING there and it is hard to get out without spending more money than you planned on spending. xo Diana

  8. Oh boy, I don't sort through! All the old stuff is on the bottom of my makeup basket and it stays there. Why? I don't know why I can't throw it case I need it?! Anyways, I just bought new make up and it is so expensive! I sacrifice the cost to help in the effort to make me look good for my age :-)

  9. I always love hearing what you buy and love, Julie! It's good to know that the mascara didn't clump, and also about the Urban Decay eyeshadow primer working for your eye liner.


Thanks for stopping by my blog and your comments always make me happy.
