Happy Monday! Over the weekend, I went to Ulta to take advantage of their 21 Days of Beauty deals because my favorite brow product was 50% off! The sales event is still on through Saturday, April 6th so definitely check out their website to see which products will be on sale and stock up. I also wanted to share some other products I checked out while I was there and what I ended up buying.
First things first, I went straight to my Anastasia Brow Wiz. I’ve tried several different brow products and this one is definitely my favorite. I have lighter brows, so I always get the shade Taupe. I love this one because it’s easy to use and not at all messy like gels or pencils can sometimes be. It’s more like a crayon consistency but smaller, so you can make individual strokes on your brow for a really natural look.
I always like to check out the Drybar products, so the next thing I ended up buying was a travel size version of the Sparkling Soda shine spray. I’ve tried so many Drybar products and really like them all, so I’m excited to use this one. The reason I wanted to try this is because I like to add shine to my hair after curling, but oil weighs it down too much so this seemed like just the right thing. I’ve tried it once so far and like it! I can’t wait to use it when I actually style my hair all the way through, though.
Aside from some cotton rounds, the Brow Wiz and Sparkling Soda are all that I bought. However, I did leave with some new additions to my wish list. I tried out some lip color from the Popsugar collection and thought they had a cute range of shades. They seemed to all either have an orange or pink undertone which is nice because those are so flattering, although I’m personally partial to orange.
Next, I looked at the new Tarte Sugar Rush Sweet Slice Palette for eye and cheek. I always love the Tarte palettes and this one is so cute for summer! I will say I don’t necessarily love the watermelon vibe for my personal aesthetic, but it’s super cute if you’re a more colorful person. However, the shades inside are all neutral with some metallics which I love.
Super high on my wish list now is the Anastasia Loose Highlighter in the shade So Hollywood. I’ve really never used powder highlighters (maybe one product before?) but I tested this gold one out and I love it. It’s concentrated but not too much. Plus, the gold gives a really beautiful, bronze glow.
The next brand I sampled was the k-beauty brand Peach + Lily. My favorite thing I tried was the Pure Beam Luxe Oil. It feels super lightweight and it’s packed with amazing cold-pressed oils like squalane, jojoba, camellia, grapeseed, and sea buckthorn. I recently saw another brand with an oil very, very similar to this that was $109 whereas this one is only $39. Just saying!
I also tried the Little Barn Apothecary Cooling Mineral Mist. The scent was Coconut + Mint which are two of my all-time favorite scents and ingredients. This would be such a great product to take with you on a plane or to the gym for a little refresher.
I love, love, love Kopari and got to sample this Coconut Detox Mask which smells amazing. It’s like a creamy mud mask and contains nourishing, anti-inflammatory ingredients like squalane, coconut oil, and green tea.
And finally, I was really excited about this new line from Clarins called My Clarins. I’d say this is like the little sister of the regular Clarins brand (which I absolutely adore). The packaging is a little less luxe and younger and the prices are on the more affordable side. But, the products themselves felt really good on my skin so I think this is a great option for someone looking to get into a good skincare brand for less.
