I *heart* ULTA...

On Friday I went into work early (4:00am) and was able to leave around 11:30, so I decided to take a trip over to the local Ulta store to see what was there. After reading numerous sightings of NYX at Ulta, I decided to search mine to see if they had a display, which they did! Although they didn't have the entire line, they did have some eyeshadows and lip glosses. I purchased the following:

NYX Eyeshadow Single "Taupe"
TS10 (Tropical, Yellow and Lime Green)
TS25 - (Golden, Rust, and Walnut Brown)
I also came across a couple of items I have wanted to try. The first is the Loreal DeCrease Eyeshadow Base, which I read about on Vanessa's blog earlier this month.
I have used this product the past couple of days, and I must say it is fantastic! Prior to using my eyeshadow, I dab some on my lid and blend in. It is a very neutral, skintone color, so it blends in seamlessly. After it has set for a minute or two, I put my shadow on over it. The shadow wears like iron, colors pop and blend easily. There is no tugging of the shadow when applying on top of the DeCrease. This is definitely a must, especially for those of you who enjoy and swear by the Urban Decay Primer Potion. More importantly, I think it is a lot easier to get all of the product out of the package as compared to the UDPP. For around $6, this is a great dupe, and easily found at your local drugstore.


Price: $6-$8 at drugstores
Product: 5 out of 5
Packaging: 5 out of 5
Quality: 5 out of 5
Price: 5 out of 5
Total: 5 out of 5

The final item I purchased at ULTA was the Tweezerman Fast Lash. This looks like a mascara on the outside, but it actually has tiny little fibers that are applied in between coats of mascara to give full, lush lashes! I will do a review of this separately, as I want to show before, after, and in between pictures for your reference.
