Small Ulta Haul

Before I get into my haul post, I wanted to alert any fellow Orange County Ulta fans that there is a new location in Rancho Santa Margarita! I didn’t know about it until last night. Not sure when it opened exactly, but if any of you south county beauties don’t want to trek up to Newport or Tustin for your Ulta needs, you don’t have to!

Also, Ulta recently launched their new mobile site. As an iphone addict, I am very happy. I like the new site! What do you think?

And now the haulage..! This was just a little haul. What drew me in was the fact that their (Ulta Brand) Extreme Wear Gel Eyeliner is on sale. It’s normally $9 but right now it’s on sale for $3. I’ve had my eye on the dark green color, Dublin, for a while now. Depending on how I like it, I might go back for another color before the sale ends. If you want an inexpensive green though, Dublin is a gorgeous color! Observe:

But who can go into Ulta and just get one thing? Haha, actually I did have one other thing in mind to pick up:
Okay so a self tanner application mitt isn’t the most exciting thing in the world, but I’d been wanting one before I do any further experiments with self tanners after my last hand-related trauma. ;) I recently got a new tanner from Xen-Tan to try and I hope this mitt will help me out with that. It was only about $5, and it can be washed and used multiple times.
Ah yes! Impulse purchase #1 – OPI Silver Shatter. This polish doesn’t shatter in blocky chunks like the China Glaze crackles do, but more of a shredded, tarnished look. I swatched it over a bare nail, which doesn’t really give you the full effect, but I look forward to playing with it combined with other shades.
And impulse purchase #2 – this cute Butter London duo. For $15 you get their limited edition No More Waity Kaity shade and a mini bottle of their Powder Room acetone-free nail polish remover. The polishes are normally $14 each, so I thought for a buck extra I could get the remover + a polish I wanted anyway. I love Butter London polishes and this purple-griege is gorgeous. So far the only thing I can say about the polish remover is it’s heavily scented. Hea-vi-ly. It smells like baby powder, which to me is a vast improvement on the smell of nail polish remover in general (though I love Zoya Remove+). But if you’re sensitive to scents it’s not for you. Also, if you go to Ulta looking for this set, it’s up by the registers, not with the other nail stuff. ;)
There are a few other low-cost thrills I had meant to look for and completely forgot about (sometimes I just get crazy in stores like Ulta and lose my mind!), so I will probably end up going back again soon haha. If you’d like a review or more info on any of these items let me know!
