New Makeup and Bag

Wednesday, January 29, 2020



Hello friends.  It's been a while since I've done one of my makeup posts or shared about it in my Friday Favorites.  I'm excited to share with you the makeup I received from Christmas.



1.  Tartlette in Bloom - Eyeshadow Palette by Tarte
I was gifted this eye palette from my daughter.  I love that this eyeshadow palette has 12 brightening matte and shimmer shades.  The colors are soft and perfect for light eye makeup for day wear.  I enjoy mixing and matching the different colors and I know I'll get a lot of use out of this palette.  





2.  Nude Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette Light - Huda Beauty
I was gifted for Christmas this eyeshadow palette from my SIL.  I have never had or used any beauty products by Huda Beauty and I love the pretty colors in this eyeshadow palette.  The colors are light peach, pinks, and mauve in matte and shimmer colors.   This is perfect for wearing in the day and evening.  I am having so much fun playing with these eyeshadows.




3.  Mac Bold & Bad Lash Mascara
This mascara was also gifted to me for Christmas from my SIL.  I have never tried this mascara from Mac and I was pleasantly surprised at how nice this mascara works.  There is a wand to use for the upper lashes and a small wand to use for the lower lashes.  This mascara works good and it makes your lashes look light and natural.  There is no clumping and it left no flaking.  I have been using this mascara every day and I'm loving it.





4.  Makeup Bag
I did some ordering of makeup for Christmas on the website for Ulta.  They had a special that if you spent a certain amount of money with your order you receive a free makeup bag.  I was able to spend the amount of money and inside the bag contains makeup and beauty samples.  I like the makeup bag and I'm having fun trying out the samples.  My only complaint with Ulta is that I did buy some products that said you would receive another gift with a purchase.  I didn't receive that item in the mail.  I called up customer service and explained everything and they said that I was supposed to click on the box to receive the items.  Well, I did that but to make good on it they sent to me a gift card to use at Ulta.  I was glad I called customer service to explain the situation and it all worked out. 




5.  Lancome - 3 Piece - La Vie Est Belle Moments Gift Set
I asked my husband and daughter for this perfume for Christmas.  They gave me this three-piece set that I love and the perfume smells so good.  It has a slight smell that isn't overpowering and perfect for day and evening wear. 


Have you tried any new makeup lately?

  6. I love makeup and Ulta. Those sample bags always come with some fun stuff. I'm glad they were able to make the situation right with a gift card. I think their customer service is tops, especially if you're a rewards member. We had a very pricey straightener kick after a year once, and they refunded me the entire amount since they felt it was defective. I think that's awesome. Yay for sun today!! Hope you have some too.

  7. Hi Julie! Oh, that is a beautiful makeup bag! I am a makeup girly girl and love hearing about what other ladies are using. That was nice of Ulta to send you a gift card since they messed up! I usually get some perfume for Christmas but someone forgot this year! :)

  8. Gotta love pink and sparkly! Last year I signed up with Ipsy to get their monthly makeup bag for a few months. I loved the small samples and cute bags but since I don't wear a lot of makeup, I canceled.

  9. Yeah could get in on your blog today. So crazy but happy it worked. Love your sparkly bag and the eye shadows. I love Mac makeup and will have to try that mascara. I usually use Lancome's define mascara and love it but it is getting so expensive. So I will give Mac's a try. Thanks for sharing. Happy Thursday.
    Hugs,
    Kris

  13. Hi Julie! No, I haven't tried any of those products, but I always love when you review your favorites. That was nice of Ulta to make good and send you a gift card to make up for your loss.
