This past December I was lucky enough to be part of a blogger beauty swap with the amazing Stef from Beautiful Beakers. We both curated one another a cute little box of goodies. We decided to spend $25 on one another, and to get beauty products from brands neither of us have tried before. December was a little hectic with receiving our boxes since the holidays were right around the corner, but I received mine, and Stef received hers. I can’t wait to show all the amazing goodies I received from Stef.
She wrote a beautifully hand written note!
Te first product I received was this beautiful blush, and contour palette from Makeup Revolution. I never tried anything from Makeup Revolution before so I was super excited when I seen this in my box! Ulta Cosmetics sells this amazing blush/contour palette for $10 USD, and you can purchase this palette at the link above. Here is a little insight from Makeup Revolution on this palette.
- Our ULTRA Blush palette is perfect for the professional application desired by all of us. Perfect for highlighting too. Professional and highly pigmented, yet easy to blend, these contain 8 shades consisting of shimmer and matte blushers, merged baked blusher, and merged baked highlighter powder. The ULTIMATE blush palette offering you 8 shades in 1 to suit any occasion!
These colors are unfortunately not named but the colors are swatched from top row on palette from left to right to top row on paper from left to right, and the same thing goes for the bottom of the palette, and bottom of the paper.
The next product I received is from another company I never tried before, and it is also sold in Ulta stores!! This product is Essence I Love Extreme Volume Mascara. I have yet to try this one yet, but I am super excited to try it out soon. Like I said this is another Ulta Cosmetics store product, and it only goes for $4.99 USD! What a steal!
- For all fans of the extreme this volume mascara will hit just the right spot! it contains ultra black pigments covering each lash color intensive and a large brush for stunning volume. This combination gives the perfect “I love-look”!
I absolutely love this color! I don’t think I have anything this pink so Im super excited to try this one out! Yet another product that can be purchased in Ulta for only $2.99 USD, and its supposed to be all day wear!
- Long lastinglove… you simply have to fall in love with the Longlasting Lipsticks by Essence. The lipsticks provide your lips with intensive color for several hours without drying them out.
Its not to bright, and its not to pink its the perfect in between!
I have SO many dry shampoo’s and thats literally an understatement! Thank to Birchbox, and Ipsy for the life time supply! What really excites me about this even though I have so many is another brand I have yet to try! What I really like about this one is that its supposed to add volume to your hair. For the most part my hair is mostly flat so I can’t wait to give this a go! This also can be purchased in Ulta, and this travel size is only $2.99 USD.
- I know you’re busy keeping up with that social life! So don’t waste precious time in the bathroom. Just use Clean Freak Dry Shampoo. Get that perfect hair (and the perfect guy!) before all the other girls. Expect more room on your social calendar because this salon formula dry shampoo will have you and your hair ready for a night out on the town.
