Birthday Gift Showdown: Sephora vs. Ulta

If it’s your birthday month and you are at least a Beauty Insider for Sephora and Ultamate Rewards member for Ulta, then go to your nearest stores or to their websites to get your birthday gift!

This year, here’s the birthday gift for Sephora:

   
    
    
  
For Ulta, here’s what I got:

   

  

  

  

 

By the way, I placed the quarter for size comparison. ๐Ÿ˜‰

My Ulta Mini Haul and Gran Turismo

Weird title, right?

It started with not being able to watch Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Another weird connection. 

The AMC Theater is near Ulta so I asked my husband if we can go there instead. I have purchased from Ulta’s website before but I haven’t been to their actual brick-and-mortar store.

But it was only for $36.53… with tax!
The first thing that I saw was the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette. So did I get it?

Nah… My goal was to get any drugstore make-up. The cheaper, the better.

I always wanted a new blush so I got this from Physicians Formula because of the great reviews that I’ve seen so far:

Physicians Formula blushes are so pretty! This retails at $12.99.
I already have a Physicians Formula blush that I also love…

 

Bought this one at Target… Love Love Love the design!
The  next goal is to buy tweezers (that I thought I already bought at Target. Read my booboo here).

 

I’m loving the Revlon Marchesa beauty tools lately. This pair of tweezers is $10.49.
But then I saw an equally cute nail clipper, so I picked it up too…

Revlon Marchesa Nail Clipper for $4.99

Honestly, I already have cute old nail clippers and tweezers, and are still usable, but I just like the Marchesa designs of Revlon that I couldn’t resist buying them…

My old but pretty nail clipper
My old but sexy tweezers… woot woot!

And of course, I couldn’t go anywhere else without buying a lipstick…

 

NYX Matte Lipstick in Whipped Caviar for $5.99

Nyx Matte Lipstick in Whipped Caviar got me whipped!
Whipped Caviar swatch… possibly my new MLBB

So where is Gran Turismo? Well, when my husband saw that I bought make-up, he said he’ll buy something for himself too.


He bought Gran Turismo for his PS3 because he said it can help me learn how to drive too…

I am a driver noob
I don’t know about thaaaat but I thought it was sweet so I volunteered to wait for the game to install while he sleeps (as he has an army training tomorrow).

Why I’m blogging at midnight…
The things you can do for love. ๐Ÿ˜‚โค๏ธ

  

 

The Quest… The Haul…

A lot has changed since I last posted… Dry skin, check! Flaky scalp, check! Happy with a husband, check check! ๐Ÿ˜€

Yes, I’m officially living in the United States of uhMerikuh (that’s how I pronounce it, by the way). Ever since I got here, I’m on a quest to find new beauty products that will suit me on this weather. The products that I used in the Philippines don’t work here anymore for me.

While I’m working on my learner’s permit to drive, I have to contend myself with my most favorite hobby of all time: online shopping!

Drumroll please… For my first Ulta haul!!! Okay, it’s not a big deal. I didn’t spend hundreds of dollars on my first Ulta haul because the money ain’t my hard-earned, y’all! It’s my husband’s sweat at stake, y’all! Kidding aside, I try to keep it on a minimum just enough to get the free shipping sweetness.

Paid $53.50 (plus 4 freebies)
I saw this small Ulta box at my doorstep like they belong there as soon as we got home from a family friend’s dinner for us. On the same note, I was first appalled when delivery people here don’t wait for you to sign for your package, i.e. our TV stand ordered online, and they just leave them outside your door (not unless of course it’s jewelry).

The quest starts here…

Saved  $2.50
$2.50 each but you get half the price for the 2nd one

$1.99 each

$9.99
And the quest ends here…

The next item is purely out of my desire to try this…

$29.00

The freebies for getting the Lancรดme lippie: an eye makeup remover & mascara (sweeeet)
But wait til you see the  “variety sampler”  samples I got from Ulta:

Zzzzzz … oh sorry, I fell asleep!
Well, they’re better than nothing, right?! No more complaints here!

And the fact that I spent more for my want than my need… HaRshtag sorrynotsorry๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜œ
