Giving you some lip!

I made the hub make a special stop in Appleton so I could shop at Ulta on our way back home. Here are the goodies I picked out:

6 NYX Lipsticks:
 Swatches from left to right: Paris, Goddess, Fig, Frappuccino, Strawberry Milk, Gardenia
These lipsticks were buy 2 get 1 free at Ulta.  Each lipstick normally retails for around $4.  I like most of them, but Strawberry Milk is too frosty and too pale for my complexion.  

Sorry-the lip swatches are kind of tacky because I was in a hurry to get them all done before I had to go to work so I just applied straight from the tube and swiped off with makeup remover wipes. :/

Prestige Brow Liner in Earth Brown and Eye Pencil in Brown:
I love these to pencils from Prestige cosmetics.  I picked these up originally from Walgreens when Prestige items were all being clearanced out.  I only bought one of each to try because I wasn't sure how I would like them but as it turned out- I absolutely loved them!  I had to go to Ulta to get backups of these.

I also bought some Kiss nail glue because I tore a nail during our little road trip and a mini clear nail polish from a company I had never heard of before called Essence (.99 cents).  I read on Nouveau Cheap's blog though that this company originated in Germany, has made it's way into the U.S. market and sold exclusively at Ulta.  See her blog entry about Essence cosmetics here.  I used these two items to patch up my broken nail.

All of the above only cost me $23.65.  Not bad.

Ultra happy with Ulta,
