Hello, my lovely friends! How did you enjoy your weekend? If you celebrate Labor Day, you may have taken advantage of some good sales. I definitely did. Ulta gave me a $15 off $50 coupon to use that I paired with discounted products and the free shipping on orders over $35 promotion. I bought a ridiculous number of four eyeshadow palettes but at a total price of $43.59, so was it really ridiculous? The answer is still yes, but let’s not think about that too much. Instead, let’s get into the unboxing and share what I got!
As I shared in my Huda Beauty Warm Brown Obsessions Palette Review + Swatches post, I picked up another Colourpop palette. The reason I bought this off of Ulta’s website and not with my last Colourpop order is because this palette actually sold out on the Colourpop website before I checked out. It was also cheaper on the Ulta website for some reason, so it all worked out in the end.
The next eyeshadow palette I got is the Nubian II palette from Juvia’s Place. I swatched this at my local Ulta store a long time ago, and I could not get the dark green shade Egypt out of my head. I let it go during the last two sales Ulta had on this palette, but it kept staying in my mind, so I bit the bullet and went for it.
The last two palettes I purchased were honestly just impulse buys (let’s be real here – all four of these were impulse buys) that I made because I’ve been obsessed with colorful eyeshadows lately. I honestly didn’t need any of these and doubt I will use them a lot, but here we are again. I present to you my unnecessary purchase of the Zulu and Afrique palettes from Juvia’s Place.
I really need to calm down with all these eyeshadows I’ve been buying lately. I really don’t need them, but as fellow makeup lovers, I’m sure you all understand the struggle. Darn you Ulta for your good deals (but really, thank you and I love you. Please give us more good deals)!!!
Thank you for sympathizing with me on the struggles of wanting more makeup. I can only worry but also hope for the great deals Black Friday will bring us. What are some things you bought during Labor Day weekend? Even if you don’t celebrate Labor Day in your country, did you make any recent purchases? I’d love to hear all about them in the comments section below!
Thanks so much for reading, and I’ll see you all next time!
