Haul - Ulta/Walmart/Sallys/Big Lots

By cristalena56 · September 30, 2012

I did a little shopping the past couple days. Ulta had a sale the past week for 40% off NYX  Products. I went in with my $5 off a $15 purchase coupon. I had planned on buying the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush since I saw rave reviews for it but put it back. I plan on going back for it with my $5 off a $10 purchase coupon. When I was at Walmart I saw Hard Candy had some new products. I should have taken a picture of the display.. They had some new palettes though that reminded me of the Pop Beauty Palettes. They are only $6. 

Borrowed this pic from DizzyNicky. The Blue one (Feelin' Blue) I just had to have. There was one color I had been looking for ever since I saw the Sigma Paris Palette (Seine). The color in this palette though is more aqua then blue. I liked the colors from the pic of Naturall Gorgeous at the display but they were all gone. If I like this one I will probably pick up more. They are very inexpensive, $6 each. Thats 60 cents per shadow. I can't wait to play with this palette.

I picked up some NYX Fake Lashes in Nirvana and Gold Digger. I thought I could get these for Halloween since they were only $2.69 each on sale. I figured if i mess up putting on one, I have a spare. I need to go  buy some new glue though. When i was using my lash glue a few days ago it had a weird odor. 

I picked up one of the new Glam Aqua Luxe Lipsticks in Razzle Dazzle. Also got a Matte Lipstick in Pure Red. I wanted the hot pink one but they were out. :( 

They blend in with the background. :/

Razzle Dazzle is a Frosty Coral.

Pure Red is a nice Matte Fire Engine Red. I found that its hard to apply by itself. It goes on more smoothly when you apply a lip balm first.

Some NYX eye products. I picked up a backup of Milk. There was only 1 so it was meant to be. I've tried the other Jumbo Pencils and they go sheer and frosty besides Black Bean. I can only Recommend Milk and Black Bean when it comes to the NYX Jumbo Liners. You need to use them with a primer though. I guess I could maybe try some of the darker colors. 

This is a pretty sparkly emerald green liner. I cant wait to try this out.

Flash and No Flash. The color came out more teal in the picture but its more green. 

NYX Glitter Mania in Purple - a bright lavender irridescent purple 

applied dry with my finger.

NYX Pencil Sharpener - I have bought this before but lost it. I had bought it after Xsparkage recommended it for the NYX Jumbo Pencils. I found this is the best one that sharpens my Milk pencil. It sharpens it perfectly unlike some that wont sharpen it, product gets stuck to it, sharpens but not very well, and I have one that seems to sharpen but also starts to sharpen the shadow part itself which is weird

Now if i lose the top part i know that the NYX one says Made in Germany. So if im looking for my sharpener and I find one without this, I know its not the one im looking for.

Wet n Wild Fantasy Makers Glow in the Dark Nail Polish. Picked this up for $1.99. Im hoping its better then my China Glaze Ghoulish Glow. I know last year Scrangie recommended this one over the China Glaze. 

I saw in some recent photos how bad my roots were so I went to Sallys for some hairdye. The developer was in a pink bottle for breast cancer. 

Palladio Herbal Eyeshadow - I remember reading last year  or maybe earlier this year about how this was a dupe for Urban Decay Primer Potion. I decided to try this. I had a coupon to get a hairdye free with a $10 or more purchase. So i decided to get this. Along with this and the developer, I was able to get my hairdye free. 


It was hard to get a swatch of this since its only a little lighter in color then my skintone. I found it to be thicker and creamy when swatching. Kind of reminds me of the consistency of the Hard Candy Face primer.. Kind of like a silicone based primer.. i cant wait to try this since I do like UDPP. Ive tried Too Faced Shadow Insurance a little bit and i found my shadows creasing like crazy.. I didnt get to use it much because it was in my makeup bag last year when my purse was stolen. 

I saw these cute earrings at Big Lots and had to buy then. I think daisies are cute and i love the skulls, roses, hearts, and stars. 

Thought I would show the Mood Changing Sanrio Hello Kitty Earrings my hubby bought me last weekend.

Tried capturing a colo difference. No matter what I always change them blue. The necklace they had though I could get to be pink and purple. I only got the earrings.

Im going to do a separate post for my Hard Candy Top Ten Feelin' Blue Palette. Love the colors!! :)


Thanks for looking!! :)
