Ulta Haul- High End to Drugstore: LORAC PRO 2 Palette, Maybelline The Nudes Palette, and More...

Hello Beauty Addicts!

Being the LORAC Cosmetics lover that I am, I had to pick up the new LORAC PRO 2 Palette. Or maybe not so new to the beauty world, since this palette has been out for a while. Still it is new to me no matter how late I am picking it up! I love the first LORAC PRO Palette so naturally I needed this palette. LORAC eye shadows are very nicely pigmented, extremely blendable, and smooth. I love how these eye shadows apply and stay put....

While at Ulta, I decided to pick up a few more things. I've been hearing mixed reviews on the Maybelline The Nudes palette. In the past, I have typically not been a fan of  Maybelline eye shadows since they are not as pigmented as I like and need. However, the neutral colors in this palette looked right up my alley so I decided to give it a try. So far the palette is ok but definitely not as intensely pigmented as the LORAC eye shadows....

Next, I stumbled upon Maybelline Leather Color Tattoo eye shadow in Creamy Beige. I do love these particular eye shadows, which I use for a base under my powder eye shadows. It really helps the eye shadow stay put and intensifies the color. This one in Creamy Beige is a dead on dupe for my beloved MAC Paint Pot in Groundwork. Bonus for me since the Maybelline Color Tattoos are way cheaper varying between $4-6 as opposed to $21 for MAC Groundwork.

The last random item I picked up was Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner. I've been having some recent skin issues, which is never any fun for a gal and it has left me with some unfortunate hyperpigmentation. I've heard great things about Glycolic Acids ability to fade dark spots and uneven skin tone. In particular with this toner, so I picked this up and will give it a try. Fingers crossed it works out for me!
Well that's all I picked up from Ulta. What things have you picked up from Ulta lately?
