@Ulta + NYX July Birthday Gift & Why We Should All Be Pissed

IMAG7989

 

I’ve stated repeatedly that if not for being able to find more of the high end brands that I prefer at Sephora and Sephora’s own collection, I’d probably shop at Ulta exclusively. They have a much better rewards programs, it’s light years ahead of Sephora’s. But I also like their high-end, low-end model because it’s a one stop shop. One of the programs that both retailers have and suck at is the birthday rewards program. Sephora has recently gotten marginally by better offering multiple choices, but it’s still geared towards pale people. Ulta? Well…

NYX Ombre Blushes.

As usual, NYX went and debuted a buttload of stuff for Spring. I didn’t as nuts as I usually do, mostly because everything looked so amazing that  couldn’t really make my mind up. But also, a lot of things just basically dupes of each other, like all the contouring stuff. I do mean to get a couple of other things, but since I’m a blush hoarder that’s what I started with.

NYX Go-To Palettes.

I for serious wish that NYX would debut all their new stuff at once, you know, to save this princess from having to order like every flippin’ week.

I saw the Go-To Palettes on the site when I went to check my order status, for the last order that I had placed. They look remarkably like the Avant Pop Palettes so at first I didn’t realise that they were new. Like the Avant Pop Palettes, these are $17, but instead of having 12 shadows, you get six, a highlighter, a blush and a bronzer.

NYX is at it again ya’ll. They just don’t give a girl time between the last round of buying before they shove something new in her face. I can’t breathe boo, you’re smothering me!

There is so much new stuff on the NYX site, it’s hard to decide what I just want because of kitsch factor, or because I really really want it. I’m not even gonna try the need word, cause at this point in my makeup life, there is rarely anything that I need.

What’s New At The Drugstore: Nyx Total Control Drop Foundation Might Be A Giorgio Armani Maestro Dupe.

IMAG6081

 (Update 5.12.17) So after I went off primer for a while and tried this foundation again, I did come to the conclusion that yes, it is an excellent dupe for GA Maestro. So if you love Maestro, but not Maestro money, have at it. 

So you may have heard a bit of an uproar on social media over the new Nyx Total Control Drop Foundation. Everybody and their mama just had to get their hands on this thing, yours truly included. 

At first I, like everyone else, thought that this was something like the CoverFX Custom Cover Drops. But you know, reading is fundamental, and after reading I realised that it’s not. It’s just foundation people, Nyx is being real tricky and sneaky like with the way they named it.
