Mini Ulta Haul!

Hello Beauties! Hope you are all having a good Saturday! Unfortunately for me it is a bit overcast right now with intermittent rain showers, but have no fear, Ulta is here to bring us cheer! I did a little bit of shopping since I got a $5.00 off coupon from a magazine and you know it would a waste to not use it right? So here's what I got on my short shopping trip at Ulta!

Top: NYX La Amoureux    Middle: Essence Stay All Day Long Lasting
Eyeshadow in 02 Glammy Goes Too...  and Essence Mattifying
Compact Powder in Translucent
  Bottom: Essence Gel Eyeliner Brush

Swatches Left to Right: NYX La Amoureux Mascara, Essence Mattifying
Compact Powder in Translucent
, and Essence Stay All Day Eyeshadow
in Glammy Goes Too...

Essence Gel Eyeliner in Midnight in Paris (Not Pictured) swatched using
the Essence Gel Eyeliner Brush with pressure (top) and little pressure (bottom,)

Yes, I finally got my first NYX product! And so far.... it is just okay. Not as spectacular as I was hoping for, but we will get back to that in the review coming soon. As always, though I am impressed with the Essence products seeing as I made one repurchase (Essence Mattifying Compact Powder in Translucent) since I am nearly out of it! And the gel eyeliner brush to go along with another essence favorite of mine, Essence Gel Eyeliner in Midnight in Paris, as well as one of their Stay All Day Eyeshadows since I have been a bit curious about them for a while now.

Have you picked up any new beauty goodies lately?
Tell me your recent purchases in the comments!

Oh and on another note, I will be going to the Premiere Beauty Show in Columbus, Ohio again this year on October 8th, so be expecting some more convention pictures and a haul!
