Another day, another haul. For some reason I haven't been getting my Ulta flyers in the mail, so my good friend Angela alerted me to some fantastic sales they're having right now. I got seven nail polishes, three of them on sale and four of them regular price (which was only $2.50 anyway), and four eyeshadows. First, here are the polishes.
Four Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear (uhh, longest name ever?) polishes. From left to right we have The Real Teal, In the Spotlight, Going Green and Wet Cement.
Essie Lollipop ($3.99) and Retro Red ($.99) and OPI Banana Bandanna ($1.99)
The L'Oreal Paris High Intensity Pigments (HiP) eyeshadows were buy 2 get 2 free and recommended by Angela, so I got four of them for about $16. That's eight shadows, since they're duos. These pictures aren't great, bad lighting and glare.
On the left is Gunmetal in a metallic finish and on the right is Reckless in a "bright" finish.
On the left is Angela's recommendation, Roaring another "bright," and on the right is Dynamic, which is concentrated. According to the website, concentrated shadows are perfect for smoky looks. I think I need a smoky tutorial to help me.
I predict my favorite of the duos will be Gunmetal because I'm pretty into greens right now. These were a really good deal! All the Ulta brand cosmetics were also buy 2 get 2 free, so run on up there, gals. Pretty good haul. I'm excited for the new Sally Hansen polishes. I hadn't heard anything about these (except maybe Wet Cement, which is the one I'm most excited about). Does anybody have any of these newer colors?
Okay, and now for my second favorite polish released this year (that I own). I wore this one a while ago so my pictures are from a while ago. I was less careful with my application then, so I apologize.
Orly Enchanted Forest, sun
There's not much to say about this one. Orly Enchanted Forest is just gorgeous. Beautiful. Fantastic. It's a slightly muted, dusty green creme. It's still identifiably green indoors and in the shade, which is a huge plus. I have a feeling that I also would have loved RBL Orbis Non Sufficit had I ordered it. I think it's a little more grayed out than the Orly, though. Anyway, I know a lot of people loved this polish too, so this probably comes as no surprise.
Until next time :)
