Minneapolis Beauty Haul

Minneapolis Beauty Haul

Hello beauties! I’ve missed you! Between spending time at the lake, on my patio, or travelling, this summer has been a whirlwind so far! I have been absolutely loving it though. We have such long winters that I really do try to soak up every minute of summer that I possibly can. Anyways, with that said, I am back from another adventure so I thought I’d share my Minneapolis Beauty Haul with you! I mostly bought clothes so I managed to restrain myself by the time I got to the Mall of America (which has Ulta and Morphe stores in it), however I did pick up a few things!

Morphe Store Haul - beauty tools and makeup products

Morphe | RC2 Brush Tubby Case

I’ve been wanting something to use when travelling with my brushes but wanted to see the various options that Morphe carries in person before buying. This cylindrical case can both be used on your vanity (with the lid snapped off) and on-the-go. I usually end up travelling with quite a few brushes so I think this will be perfect! I will likely be travelling again later on this summer (and for sure a few times this fall) so I’ll keep you guys posted! It was $15USD, less the 10% discount code you can get from various YouTubers.

Morphe | Continous Setting Mist

I have wanted this setting mist for SO LONG but the last time I was in Minneapolis Ulta was sold out and the Morphe store wasn’t open yet. I’ve just seen lots of positive reviews and the continous mist sounds so much better than a traditional setting spray. Also bonus… while I was walking around the store with this, a very helpful Morphe employee pointed out that they had a deal going on where you could get the spray, the eyeshadow primer and a makeup sponge for $20 USD, and the spray by itself was $16USD. So… I also purchased the Morphe Eyelid Primer (review and comparison to my beloved Urban Decay Eyeshadow primer potion will be posted after testing!) & the Morphe Highlight & Contour Beauty Sponge (have previously purchased and have enjoyed using this one!).

Ulta Haul - Colourpop Concealer & Makeup Revolution Palette

Colourpop | No Filter Concealer in Fair 02

I was actually going to leave Ulta empty-handed (I bought a LOT of clothes at the Outlet Mall earlier that day) but then I saw the Colourpop stand and had to pick this up! I’ve wanted to try out their concealers for so long but was nervous finding my shade online. I can’t wait to try this out and compare to Tarte’s Shape Tape which has been my go-to for years.

Makeup Revolution | Forever Flawless Constellation Palette

Makeup Revolution Forever Flawless Constellation Palette

Since I already had the concealer in my hands, I decided on a whim to grab this palette since I was already committing to standing in the fairly long check-out line. I’ve been REALLY enjoying Makeup Revolution Palettes this year (Makeup Revolution Iconic Division Palette vs. Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture PaletteMakeup Revolution Reloaded Neutrals 2 PaletteMakeup Revolution Warm Makeup Look) so I couldn’t resist picking up another! I love colourful palettes so I can’t wait to play with this! I’ve been wearing next-to-no-makeup all summer but this may make me start wearing more again just so I can play with it!

SNP Panda Brightening Mask Sheet

SNP Panda Brightening Mask Sheet

It’s been awhile since I’ve given my first impressions of a mask around here but today I’ve got my initial thoughts on the SNP Panda Brightening Mask Sheet for you. I picked up this mask last summer at Ulta but am only now getting a chance to try it out. I don’t know about you but there’s something about a sheet mask with an animal on it that makes me so happy. This mask is supposed to replenish dull skin and even out rough texture, leaving behind smooth and brighter looking skin.

The key ingredients in the SNP Panda Brightening Mask Sheet are: coconut water, paper mulberry, mulberry bark extract and niacinamide. I don’t know why but I was getting a citrusy scent from the mask when I was wearing it. The smell was nice though! Continue reading

Ulta Haul!

Ulta Haul

Hi guys! I went to the States last weekend so as always, it had to include a trip to Ulta in Duluth, MN! Oh Ulta, how I wish you had a few stores in Canada… What I love about Ulta is that it’s the best of Sephora, Shopper’s Drugmart and Chatters all rolled into one wonderful place! I could spend an entire day getting lost in there… but I controlled myself and managed to spend probably less than an hour there before we got back in the car and continued on the road to Minneapolis. It also happened to be the last day of a 20% off promotion so it was definitely a great time to stop there!

Let’s take a look at what I grabbed…

Makeup Revolution | Unicorns Unite Salvation Eyeshadow Palette

I didn’t originally have this on my shopping list but since they didn’t have the unicorn highlighter that I had my eye on, and I had unicorns on the brain, I decided to pick this up. Plus, there was a buy 2, get 1 free deal going on with Makeup Revolution. The colours in this palette jumped out at me as they look fun for summer so I’m excited to see how this inexpensive palette works out. I haven’t even touched or swatched any of this yet, as soon as I got back from the States I went out to the cottage. Continue reading

Ulta Shopping List

Ulta Shopping List

Hi guys! I’m heading to the States this weekend so as always, I’ll be making a stop at Ulta. My shopping list contains all products that are not readily available near me. Some of these may be available in Canada but they aren’t items I’ve seen locally. I’m so excited to take a good wander around Ulta, I haven’t browsed around one since September!

Mario Badescu | Drying Lotion

I got a sample of this a few Ulta trips ago and I really liked it for the odd time that I have stubborn and painful acne. This product really helped dry them up and heal faster.

TonyMoly | I’m Real Red Wine Mask Sheet

Tonymoly I'm Real Red Wine Mask Sheet

I’ve been wanting to try some TonyMoly sheet masks so I’ll likely pick up a few different ones but this one stood out to me during a quick browse of the Ulta website. This mask is supposed to reduce the appearance of large pores which is definitely appealing to me. Also, I love red wine so obviously my eyes were drawn to this one. Continue reading
