Over the past few weeks, Ulta has been having their 21 Days of Beauty sell where they have different products on sell for really great prices. Sadly, it’s over now (booo), but I was able to catch the end of it and get an Anastasia Beverly Hills brow pencil which I’ve been looking at for a while now for half off. I’ve heard a lot of really great things about this from a bunch of people, so I’m really excited to try it out!
As for the product itself, there’s nothing incredibly impressive about the packaging (which I don’t really mind considering it’s just a brow pencil….), but the actual pencil is really nice. It has a little brush on one end which is really convenient since you don’t have to search around to find a brow brush (I really should organize my brushes). The pencil itself is about the smallest thing I’ve ever seen which is really nice for trying to get natural looking eyebrows. I got the color Taupe, and it is absolutely perfect for me. The color is spot on. From what I saw at the store, they also have a wide range of colors to choose from, so anyone should be able to find the right color for them.
The second thing that I bought was the new Natural Love palette from Too Faced. I am absolutely in love with this collection. I definitely prefer more natural looking makeup, so this is perfect for me. The packaging is absolutely beautiful, it comes with a huge mirror, and the color selection is perfect for so many different looks. I was actually surprised at just how big the shadows are since there are 30 of them. The only problem I can see myself having with the palette is that since it’s so big I probably won’t want to take it on trips which is really depressing since it has such a great mirror.
(Excuse some of the swatches. The light ones definitely blend in with my pale skin….haha) The shadows themselves are for the most part really pigmented. There were a lot more straight glittery shades than I thought there would be, and I would have likes some of them to be a bit more pigmented, but just from what I’ve seen so far, I really love them.
