Happy shopping babes! Stock up on the stuff you love and take this awesome opportunity to try out a few things that you have had your eye on!!
I used to LIIIIVE for the cutest most darling makeup bag on the planet, but since realizing that.don’t.matter.at.all I am hooked on #FUNCTION!! My friend Tia suggested these makeup bags and I am absolutely hooked (like bough three of each hoooooooked!!). I love being able to see all the things I need at once instead of dumping out the contents to get to that ONE lipstick. I keep a couple in my car, use these for my kiddos and swear there is no better, more functional, spacious or durable makeup bag on the planet!
There are only four bags, but you will be SET with these four and then keep comin’ back for more, trust!
1 : TRAIN CASE $12 : I thought I would need two of these, but since I have discovered I can fit a FULL SIZE shampoo bottle in there, along with all the brushes, sprays and goodies I need to style my kids hair and keep my hair lookin’ fly I know I am set with just one! 2 : PENCIL CASE $10 : This is the perfect case to keep in your car or to store your makeup brushes in while you travel. It may LOOK small, but this bag will fit everything you need. Believe you me. 3 : MESH BAG $11 : I didn’t have high hopes for this bag, but I have stuffed it full and it stays in my car holding a full face of makeup without blinking. I have since bought a few more of these because it is the most versatile size and I live for the mesh! 4 : BASIC ZIP CASE $12 : I could not be happier with this bag!!! I love love love seeing everything at once and since it can fit all the makeup one gal would need for a weeks worth of looks you know I bought three 😘 I love this case for my skincare while traveling too because if anything spills it is contained and is an easy wipe down!
I am never one to pass up a good beauty sale and this spring has DELIVERED, but subsequently draaaaaained my bank account. Here is my rational: buy while on sale and you don’t have to buy later 😘 My husband doesn’t quite agree with this path of thinking, but in the long run I am SAVING us money riiiiiight???
The Ulta Spring Haul Event is compiled of MOSTLY drugstore products, but don’t fret that there aren’t incredible deals!!! Here are the deals I cannot live without for the two different weeks that it runs. Pay attention to the dates, you don’t want to miss these!
APRIL 8TH-14TH DEALS YOU NEED:
- Flawless 4 Eyeshadow Palette ORIGINALLY $15/SALE $9 I have had my eye on this palette forever because I have read great reviews and seen stunning looks created with these colors. For $9, I couldn’t pass this one up!!
- Self Tan Express Bronzing Mist ORIGINALLY $40/SALE $24 This one is a cult fave and since you KNOW I am sunless tan addict I couldn’t pass up this deal!! I looooove the easy application and the color is perfection.
- Make It Last Setting Spray Prime + Correct + Set ORIGINALLY $9.99/SALE $6.99 I have sworn by this setting mist for years and years since discovering it was a cheaper dupe for my holy grail All Nighter spray. I grabbed a couple while it’s on sale so that I won’t be caught without it!
APRIL 15TH-21ST DEALS YOU NEED:
- Real Techniques Sets and Sponges ALL 40% OFF These beauty sponges and brush sets are my favorite in the business and not just because they are budget friendly, but because they are top quality!! Grab the set of double sponges (split if a friend if you only need one!), the flawless base set, and the sculpting set (which includes my favorite concealer brush 👌🏼)!
- Butter Bronzer Murumuru Butter Bronzer + Blushes ALL 40% OFF These bronzers and blushes rival my high end products, smell incredible and even at full price they DELIVER! Snag the Butter Bronzer in “Bronzer” and ANY of the blushes while they are the best deal I have ever seen!
- Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara ORIGINALLY $8.99/$5.39 Besides this being one of my favorite mascaras at the drugstore, it’s just $5 SOOOOOOO #getit!!! Great length and awesome volume this mascara will.not.disappoint!
That’s all, in my opinion, that is worth grabbing, but is there something on YOUR list that I missed??
