What’s in the box?

Black Friday packages have started to arrive! I love the sales and specials on makeup this time of the year. Ok, let’s face it, I love makeup sales anytime of the year, but Black Friday gives me a bit of permission to go a bit crazy! LOL So this is the frst package that has arrived. It’s from ULTA! I love shopping at Ulta, either online or in the store give me money and give me Ulta and I’m set!

So let’s talk about what is in the box!


The first product was not a Black Friday special. It was a palette I’ve waited for and it went on sale, so I had to have it! It’s the Urban Decay Vice LTD Reloaded. It is gorgeous! Oh my goodness it is pretty! I love the vibrant colors and of course the quality of Urban Decay is always excellent. There are 20 shades, and I wanted it because they have some great colorI I’m all for the nude matte, but sometimes a girl just needs to have some color!!! Take a look, what do you think? I’m going to have to get it together and do some swatches in a video for you. Not a bad deal for $32.00.

The next product out of the box is another want, and not a Black Friday special, but it’s Too Faced Glitter Glue. I never imagined that I would be wanting to wear glitter at 46 years old, but I’ve tried it once and now I’m in love with it! So in order to achieve the best look possible, I had to have Glitter Glue! This product was $20.00, and if it does what I hope it will it will be $20.00 well spent!


More Too Faced!!!! The lashes, Love & Lipstick was a Black Friday special! It has an exclusive Melted Matte in It’s Happening. This is a bright red shade that leans more to the pink side. It’s very bold! I’m not sure, but it may be too bold for me! It has a sparkling glitter finish and it’s really pretty, so I’ll have to try it to see how it works! The other product in the box is a deluxe sample size of Better than Sex Mascara. It’s 4.8 ounces and it’s one of Too Faced’s most popular products. I love this mascara, it stays put, and really makes my lashes look great. Now as a disclaimer I have weird eyelashes, they grow downward instead of upward. It’s a real medical thing, but it’s more of nusiance to me. I have to have a thin mascara that will pull my lashes upward, and then I usually do the Better Than Sex mascara after that first coat. I would wear this alone if my eyelashes would allow it. The last bit of makeup love in this package is a small Too Faced Blush, called Your Love is King. It’s a small 2.0 grams blush. It’s a soft pink which I’m sure can be darker when put on heavier. Once again, I love Too Faced, so this little set was perfect for me at $19.00.

Most of the makeup I use is cruelty free. I’m not overly passionate about it, but I really just prefer makeup and products not tested on animals. The last two products I picked up are not made by companies that are cruelty free. From the research I have done though the only animal testing these companies do is what is required by law to sell in China. With that said, the next product is Maybelline Baby Soft Skin Instant Pore Eraser. Oh my goodness!!! I LOVE this! It’s smooth and silky and really just glides on my face. It makes my makeup look great and it feels good, so that’s a win for me. At $5.99, you can’t go wrong!


My final product score is the Ulta Beauty Just Face It 20 piece face and eye palette. It has 13 eyeshadows and an eyeshadow brush. There are several matte shades and, of course, shimmer shades too! The second part of the palette is 4 face shades. There are two blushes, a highlighter, a contour shade, and a bronzer. I haven’t tried this palette yet, I have so many, but it’s on the list to try and I will let you know what I think. I normally like Ulta makeup, so I don’t expect this to be any different, but I’ll let you know!
