Haul: Ulta Friends and Family



I happened upon an Ulta Friends and Family coupon code some time ago, so I decided to use it to get my favorite mascara. But then I wanted to spend $50 to get the free shipping, so I ended up getting the Lorac Pro palette too. They also included a couple (mostly useless) samples. 






I got the Benefit They're Real Mascara (like my 6th one) and the Lorac Pro palette. They were both 20% off, which is nice, because they rarely go on sale. And it's even rarer to get a good coupon from Ulta that I can use on things I actually want to buy. I also got samples for Lorac face primer, Benefit eye cream, Matrix shampoo and John Freida lightning spray for blondes (whyyyyy). 





Here are all of the shades swatched. I didn't use primer, and only did 2 swipes. But they look pretty good. My beautiful blond arm hairs really accentuate the shadows. Honestly, I can see why people really love this palette. The shadows are just so soft. Some of the lighter shades don't show up on my skin very well (looking at you Cream), but they're all very pigmented. The palette also comes with a primer that comes in like a lip gloss tube. It's a little weird but I'll roll with it. 





I'll do a full review on this later, but so far I think it's a good purchase since I do love neutrals.

  1. Great haul! What do you think of that Yellow Diamond perfume? It's actually one I was interested in trying.

    1. It's not very much my taste. Kind of a fresh, clean flowery smell.

  3. I love neutrals, but I already have quite a few palettes that I'm still debating on the Lorac Pro.

    1. I was debating too because I have so many neutrals. But I'm not regretting it at all. The colors are so nice to use.

  4. The Lorac Pro palette seems really, really nice. I find it pretty funny that they randomly sent you a sample of lightening spray - that would be like sending out a sample of one foundation color to everybody. Seems like kind of a waste.

    1. Yeah. I even offered it to the only blonde who lives in my house but she didn't want it.

  5. Awesome deals! I wish I had taken advantage of it!! I still haven't tried the Lorac Pro palette.. It hasn't appealed to me until recently! Now I really want it!

    Excited to see your review :)

  6. Yes, I just got a 20% off from Ulta coupon and I can't wait to use it and get some higher end products! The sample of the It's Potent eye cream from Benefit is a good one to have. You get a decent amount to try (since you only need the smallest bit) and when I got a sample, it definitely made me want to get the whole bottle. Nice haul =P

    k.f.c. =P
