If you have been to Ulta recently, or even received one of their emails, you may have noticed their 5 for $5 promotion going on. In store, they have little bins of stocking stuffers, which equate to a $1 each. They have mini hair care items, lotions, bath bombs, nail polish, and even Ulta brand makeup. I picked up 5 of the most intriguing makeup items to share with you today.
For a mere fiver, I picked up two Ulta Matte Lip Crayons (.09oz) in the colors Hazy Pink and Raspberry Rose. I also picked up a mini Ulta Electric Mascara in Purple Glitter. The two brow products are also Ulta brand and are the Brow Duo in Light Brown and the Brow Pencil in Golden Blonde.
From Left to Right: Raspberry Rose, Hazy Pink, Brow Duo (light brown & highlight), Golden Blonde, and Purple Glitter mascara.
Raspberry Rose is not as dark as it looks in the tube. These are very, very matte and feel a little drying but have great staying power. They are a chunky, twist-up pencil and I like the soft rose color of this one.
Hazy Pink is a much brighter, almost bubblegum pink, but muted. Great staying power but prep your lips well!
I am a huge fan of the Brow Duo. The highlight side is so creamy and a great multi-tasker and the brow side is super pigmented and has become my go-to brow shade because it matches my hair really well. The Golden Brown pencil is a great shade, but a little dry. I would pass on that. The purple mascara is really fun but there is no perceptible glitter in it.
Moral of the story, don’t overlook those 5 for $5 bins! I found a few gems and there are a ton of other treasures there too! Happy Sunday!
