November 2017 Ulta Haul

Hey, Friends! I’ve been meaning to be more intentional when it comes to sharing hauls since I tend to talk about my empties often, so I’m switching it up for once lol. Today I’m sharing with you my last two Ulta hauls which I combined into one here since there really wasn’t a ton.

I’m kind of a slow beauty shopper and shop at different retailers for my beauty needs, so I’m not one to ever get close to Ulta’s (or anywhere’s) platinum status. Well. I guess I spent more than usual at Ulta this year because I ended up getting sooo close to platinum! I had some items on my mind to get anyway so I decided to seal the deal and nab platinum for 2018. If I’m going to buy beauty products might as well get something in return, right? We’ll see if it’s actually worth it. So here’s what I got!

Summer 2016 Beauty Haul: Doing some revamping!

When I do a massive declutter, it feels only natural for me to fill up all that extra space with better, newer stuff. Ha! No but really-decluttering this time around has inspired me to refresh and update my stash. I like having options, but they have to be the right options.

Typically, I try new products here and there or if I run out of something. This time however, I wanted to do a little more revamping! I’ll do more in-depth reviews once I get around to using them a few times, but for now here’s an overview of my latest haul (yes- I had missions for this haul, I was intense lol).

Mission 1: Primers

I used to use primers not too long ago. They’d make my makeup look pretty good at first, but I have oily/combo skin and gave up on a lot of them because they made me greasy or felt greasy, broke me out, or didn’t improve anything enough to be worth that extra step. Maybe my newer foundations were fine enough on their own and didn’t need a primer so much, who knows! But I wanted to try some new primers for my skin type and to revisit the whole idea. I decided to get Pacifica Oil Control Primer , $18.00, and Cover Girl Outlast All-Day Primer, $12.99,  based on some pretty good reviews on the Ulta site. Sometimes these go on sale and depending on the product, you can use an Ulta coupon. I can’t wait to see how these work on me!
