Have you guys taken part in the ULTA 21 Days of Beauty event currently going on? It started Sunday (March 11) and goes through the end of March; along with special in-store events, every day ULTA features a different "Beauty Steal" which is a discount on a particular product. They kicked it off on Sunday by offering the Too Faced Naked Eye palette on sale for $20, and today they marked down one of my favorite mascaras- Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes- to only $10! Of course I had to get myself over there to pick one up (although you can take part in the Beauty Steals online, too). I mentioned this in my last post and it happens to be perfect timing- I'm just finishing my current tube of Lights, Camera, Lashes so I was in desperate need of a new one.
As you can guess, I took this as another opportunity for some retail therapy. I know, I know, that's the last thing I need to be doing right now, but it's so much fun to actually "allow" myself to go shopping this semester (usually I'm incredibly stingy with my money)! I just decided that it's OK every now and then to splurge, and in my defense, I haven't spent a lot of money on makeup this semester. How does that sound for rationalizing my purchases? :)
Anyway, along with the Tarte mascara I also picked up a product I've been interested in trying- the new L'Oreal Magic Lumi primer. I printed out one of those $3.50 off $10.00 coupons, making the $12.99 retail price a little more manageable. I haven't tried this out on my face yet, but I still thought it would be fun to post pictures/swatches for your viewing pleasure! It's really pretty and I like the looks of it so far (I'll post a review after I've developed an opinion on it). And now, moving on to the pictures:
L'Oreal Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer, $12.99
Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! mascara, regularly $19 (on sale for $10 today, 3/13, only)
Swatches of L'Oreal Magic Lumi primer-
As you can see, the primer gives off a really subtle luminescence. I'm so anxious to try this out- I'm all for anything that will give my skin a "glow" without being frosty/shimmery!
If you guys are interested in trying out the Tarte mascara you still have a few hours left! You can catch the Beauty Steal online here, which I believe runs until the end of the day.
Have you tried either of these products, or partaken in ULTA's 21 Days of Beauty yet? They have some pretty great deals going on- there will be a serious test of will power on my end!
