Weekend Haul

So Friday night I had the strangest dream. I dreamed I was in a makeup superstore where they kept their products in glass cases like a grocery store freezer. For some reason, I was searching over and over for the lipstick in my Wishlist post but never found it. When I woke up, it was Saturday and we were going shopping, so I took it as a sign. I had a coupon for Ulta, so here are some swatches of what I got.

(Sorry for the terrible quality photos, I’m working on it. I’ll try to update the post with better pictures later.)

NYX Matte Lipstick in Sweet Pink, which their site says is a violet-fuchsia. I was hoping for a more of a purple color.

NYX Creamy Round Lipstick in Chic Red, which their site says is a cranberry red. It is very very pigmented, just touching it to the lips leaves color.

My new love, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Istanbul, which they describe as a clean pink. They unfortunately didn’t have the one from my wishlist, Copenhagen, as it appears to be sold out everywhere (except on Amazon if you want to pay $21). I put it on as soon as I left the store and the consistency is amazing. It dried very matte and stayed on for hours with very minimal transfer. The light color does unfortunately show off all the cracks in your lips when they dry.

I will definitely be buying more Matte Lip Creams the next time Ulta sends me a coupon. And the best part is that all three of these were under $10 with their current BOGO 1/2 off sale and my $3.50 coupon!
