Ulta Haul!

Hey guys!
I ordered some stuff from Ulta last week and it came in yesterday so I figured I would show you what I got! The real reason that I ordered was because I needed some new skincare products because my skin has been looking like straight butt lately and I am not ok with that! But NYX was buy one get one 50% off so.... I kind of had to get some stuff. Plus they had a NYX goody bag if you spent $35 so you best believe I got that! Anyways, lets start with non-makeup.

  1. Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque- I have used this before and I remember liking it. It claims to help with acne and it's pretty cheap so I thought I'd give it a shot!
  2. Neutrogena Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Fight & Fade Gel- According to the reviews on Ulta's website it doesn't really do much to help fade acne scars but that isn't really my main concern. I needed a new spot treatment and a lot of people liked this one. My skin tends to be pretty sensitive and dry so I might have to use this every other day, it has 2% salicylic acid. I'm now looking for one that had benzoyl peroxide in it, if you know of any good ones please let me know!
  3. Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play Volumizing Hairspray- I LOVE this hairspray! I got a travel size of it in one of my Ipsy bags a few months back and I sadly ran out of it. I really don't want to pay $20 for a big bottle of hairspray although I'm sure that I will eventually. This was on sale for $3.00 and it's travel size so it will be perfect for my trip to Canada this summer! 
  4. Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Cream Cleanser- Let me just say, I am kind of irritated with Ulta. I wanted the scrub version of this face soap and the item I purchased said that it was the scrub but the picture was of the cream cleanser so I figured it was just a mistake and that they'd send me the right one. Nope. I'm going to double check the listing I bought it from because I think I've tried the cream cleanser before and it dried the heck out of my skin. 
  5. NYX Dewy Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray- I'm really looking forward to testing this out. I love NYX products and I love setting sprays so I figured, why not?
  6. L'Oreal Ever Style Beach Spray- I have naturally wavy/curly hair so I love any product that just gives it a little bit of a boost. I know Bumble & Bumble makes a really great beach spray but I just could never justify their prices so when I saw this for around $5 I knew I had to get this! There will definitely be a review coming soon.
  7. Clean & Clear Advantage Acne Control Moisturizer- This is the moisturizer that I've been using since January and I absolutely love it! I'm running low on mine so I got this one for when I run out. 
  1. Samples- Ahava Extreme Day Cream, The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream, MOR Hand Cream
  2. NYX Liquid Crystal Liner in Crystal Pink
  3. NYX Studio Liquid Liner in Extreme Black
  4. NYX Glam Liner Aqua Luxe in Glam Golden
  5. NYX Glam Lipstick Aqua Luxe in Divine
  6. NYX Glam Shadow in Beauty Blog
  7. NYX Studio Liquid Liner in Extreme Pink
  8. NYX GLam Lip Gloss Aqua Luxe in VIP
  9. NYX HD Photogenic Concealer in Porcelain
  10. NYX Green Tea Blotting Paper

Every single makeup product that I bought was from NYX.... oops! Let me know if you want reviews of any of the products!
Have a beautiful day <3

Lets Catch Up!

 Hey everyone!
I figured since it's been a while we might as well catch up so I'm going to fill you in on the top 6 most important things that you missed!

  1. I don't really have a picture for this one because it would be kind of gross. But in the end of September I had to have my appendix removed due to appendicitis. Its a good time. (All sarcasm intended)

2. Unfortunately this isn't a fun one. In January I lost my beautiful dog Jasmine to a heart attack. Not a day goes by that I don't think about her.
3. I took my senior class trip to Washington D.C., it was a lot of fun but I was in serious need of a nap at the end of the day. And lets just say, when I got home I had never been so happy to see my bed.
4. I somehow managed to make it through a full year of AP Physics along with a full course load of other difficult classes (thank you Jesus!).
5. SENIOR PROM! First off, I would just like to say that I looked like a mermaid. I tried to get them to do an under the sea theme, but no such luck. Either way, it was an amazing night and I was and still am, absolutely in love with my dress. ( by Gigi ) Oh, and can we just take a second to appreciate the man candy in this picture! It is Monday, so... #mancandymonday anyone?
 6. I graduated!! WOOO! I know everyone says it, but it's so true. These past four years flew by. My senior year went by in a blur. I feel like if you blinked or stopped for just one second, you missed something important. The past four years have definitely been a roller coaster, but high school was great and I'm looking forward to college and being able to get on with my life!
Congratulations to everyone in the Class of 2013! I can't believe we finally made it! To anyone who's still in high school, don't wish it away. Come the week of graduation your going to wish you could have just one more class with that cute boy you never got to talk to. Everything that you might have hated is suddenly going to become something that you love and will deeply miss.
That's all for tonight guys! I should have a Hope's & Ulta haul coming for you guys really soon!
Let me know what I missed in your life while I was away!
Have a beautiful night.
