Ulta Beauty Haul

Hey y'all! I hope your week is off to a great start! This time of year I kind of don't want to buy anymore winter clothes but it's just too early to start purchasing pieces for spring. So I either find transitional things that can work now and later or I skip clothing shopping all together. But this season, I'm also really excited about beauty products. I'm not a beauty expert by any means but I am a real woman who loves to try new products that make me feel and look better. So today, I'm sharing six products that I recently picked up from Ulta Beauty!

1. Mascara | This mascara is a regular restock for me. I switched to this mascara from one that costs twice as much last summer (you can see my splurge vs. steal mascara review here). Mascara is a big part of my personal makeup routine so finding one that I love is a must. This mascara is under $10 and gives your lashes so much volume without being clumpy. I personally do not like the waterproof version of this mascara because it's super difficult to remove. I use the regular formula in the color black every single day. I don't think I could spend $20 on mascara again!

2. CC Cream | I have been wanting to try this CC Cream for a really long time and I love that it contains SPF. I've heard great things about it but the full size version of $38. Spending that much on a small tube of makeup seems like an investment to me and I really want to make sure I love something before I spend that much on it. So I decided to get the travel size that is about half the size and half the price to get it a try before I purchase the full size product. I do this anytime a small size is available before committing to spending $30+ on a beauty product.

3. Mask | I recently tried the facial spray from this same brand I absolutely loved it. This skincare line has so many unique products and I can't wait to try more so I ordered this mask. I love using a facial mask at least once a week. I'm so excited to give this one a try!

4. Dry Shampoo | If you read last Tuesday's post, then you know how important dry shampoo is in my hair care routine. I typically use a pretty inexpensive dry shampoo but I wanted to start testing out a variety of different ones so I could let y'all know which ones are really worth the money. I am starting out with this one from Living Proof, also in a travel size version. I'll let y'all know what I think of this one soon. It has amazing reviews on Ulta's website so I have high hopes!

5. Hair Ties | I also mentioned these hair ties in last Tuesday's post and I grabbed another pack of them because I love them so much. These hair ties are life changing! I know that sounds kind of silly because I am referring to something that ties your hair back but really, they are great! They don't pull your hair out or leave a crease in your hair when you take your hair down. These are also really great for thick hair. They securely hold my hair in a ponytail or a bun! If they get stretched out, you can regain their shape by putting them in mug of hot water. These are a must have hair product!

6. Lip Gloss | I already own this lip gloss in the shade tiramisu, which is the perfect neutral color for everyday wear. I wanted another color and I love this strawberry cheesecake shade. These glosses are semi sheer so they aren't too intense, they make your lips feel so soft, and they smell so good!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
