Fabulous Find Friday!

I told y'all earlier this week that I did a little bit of damage at ULTA last weekend. That's why Dave says I can't work, (well, that and the electric bill...) because I spend money when I'm off work! I just think they were all needed items. I need to add color to my cheeks. I need to have fabulous lashes, and you all know I need my chapstick!

The reality is that although I spent close to $50 I got a LOT of bang for my buck. I honestly felt like ULTA was paying ME to get fabulous products! Well, maybe not quite, but it was still pretty awesome. So it is my duty to share the fabulousness with you.

Some of this I own and some of this I would like to own...
Talk about value! With this Smashbox Complexion Perfection kit you're getting primer, foundation, concealer and powder! My friend Courtney loves this photo finish. These are "sample sizes", but they are not tiny...they will go a long way!
For those looking for a little color, you can try the Smashbox Runway Glam kit. This is the deal of the day! We're talking eye shadow, cream liner palette, duo blush, double ended lip gloss, photo finish, and a great brush! At $47 we would label you a bargain shopper!
This is what mom got. (Among other things...let's be honest!) This Two-Faced Safari Sexy kit comes with a full size mascara(!!), bronzer, brush, full size eye liner, full size lip gloss, full size eyeshadow duo...and I might be leaving something else out. Bottom line, it's a $34 winner.
This is what I got...$20 worth of goodness....The Lorac Press Release kit comes with a cheek stamp (which I LOVE), a full size liquid eyeliner, lip gloss, and mascara. The cheek stamp is my new BFF because I am very pale naturally. I can throw it in my purse and just stamp it on my cheeks for a color jolt throughout the day.
These last 2 items are a-la-carte but well worth it! My mom has used lip stain for awhile now and while she was looking for her favorite name brand the specialist at ULTA informed us that Cover Girl uses almost the same formula and that their product is fab at a fraction of the price! So guess who tried it out? We did! And it's a winner. We (me, mom and Kristen) all liked the color Cinnamon Stick the best. Right now all CG products are buy one get one 50% off, so you might want this next item too...

How I love thee, let me count the ways....Y'all, I am completely addicted to chapstick. And while the Lipslicks will not replace my beloved Burt's Bees it has become a staple. I do not hold any natural color in my lips, so once my red lips wear off from my morning makeup I can look a bit...boring. My new Lipslick gives me the moisture I need from a chapstick but a bit of color as well. It also has a nice gloss! For $3.99 you're in business!

And right now, for your buying pleasure, ULTA is running free shipping on orders over $50 as well as a $3.50 off your purchase online. Happy Shopping! And do share some of your Fall faves!

Those are some great finds! I might have to try the cheek stamp. I'm not pale but for some reason my cheeks lose color instantly. This might be a good solution.

For some reason I can't comment on your blog from one of our computers. :| Anyway, have you ever used makeupalley.com? They have product reviews on everything under the sun. I love it.

Thanks for stopping by my blog - it was lovely to have a nice comment :) LOVE your blog! So adorable :)

I have a love affair with makeup - so much so that I practically buy something new every week. It's a bad habit, I know! LOVE Smashbox products - their primer is amazing! Hope you have a great weekend!
