Ulta After Christmas Haul!!

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone!!

Another day, another haul of makeup goodies that I was lucky to get because of those pesky gift cards that were burning holes in my wallet haha! :)

I went in to Ulta because Maybelline released a new version of one of my all time favorite mascaras and I had to get my hands on it… 4 products and 2 hours later, here we are…

Maybeline Lash Sensational Lucious

This is Maybelline’s Lash Sensational Luscious Full Fan Effect Waterproof mascara, in 704 Very Black. And if it anything like the regular Lash Sensational, it’s going to be great haha!

And because it’s Ulta, they were having a sale. So it was buy one Maybelline product get the other half off… How could you pass that up?? (Ulta is also a great place to find all the new releases from the drugstore brands, sometimes the drugstores themselves take a while to put them out)

Maybelline Master Precise Skinny

This new adorable product is the Master Precise Skinny eye liner in the shade 230 Refined Charcoal. It claims to be always sharp with smooth gel intensity. Honestly it was just so cute and tiny I was all for it. It looks like it would be great for the water line and tight line because of how tiny it is and the gel formula.

Real Techniques Foundation Brush

Next up is this pretty brush from Real Techniques. It is their foundation brush, nothing too special but their brushes are as good as everyone says and I liked the angle of this brush and how densely packed it is! It was also $8 so… Win win situation here.

And believe it or not, I stayed strong at the isle of doom at Sephora, but lost at Ulta…

it Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye

A mini of It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye concealer in the shade Neutral Medium. Everyone loves this brand and their CC Cream, I haven’t heard much about this product but what I have heard is all positive. It was a really good deal and figured why not!?

That is all that I picked up at Ulta! Stay tuned tomorrow for my December Favorites (even though its January…)! I hope you all had a lovely New Years Eve! Let me know if you would like any updates from today’s haul or yesterdays!

Until next time,

Cheers! xoxo

Sephora After Christmas Haul!!

Happy Wednesday everyone!! Today’s post is all about lovely gift cards that I got for Christmas that were burning a hole in my wallet haha!

Gift Card Sephora and Ulta Haul

 

So let’s jump right in shall we?

Bite Beauty Discovery Set

This pretty thing right here is the Bite Beauty Discover Set. With 3 full size products, 3 travel sized products, a mirror and 5 Lush Lip Wipes. I’ve had my eye on this set since they released it but I couldn’t bring myself to spend the $55 on it. Well now that the holidays are over it was on sale for $40 and I couldn’t say no… I’ve swatched them all and am in love. Let me know if you want me to do a full on review of this set!!

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

Now on to something that surprisingly I have never tried but every Beauty Blogger and Guru under the sun has tried an loved. And I must say I am very very excited to see what all the hype is about! If you haven’t figured it out this is the Kat Von D Tattoo Liquid Liner in the shade “Trooper”!

Next up is something that I have been dying to buy but could never justify the prices…

These two YSL beauties are the YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking, in the color No. 1 Deep Black, and YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in the color No. 9 Nude in Private! Both of these products I’ve heard so much about and I am so excited to try them. The lipstick is a gorgeous pinky-mauvey-browny nude that is just so so pretty.

And last but not least I used some of my points to try out something from L’Occitane,

L'Occitane

This is their Supple Skin Oil with Almond Oil. I don’t know much about it but it looked pretty and sounds interesting so, why not!

And that is what I picked up from Sephora yesterday! I also went to Ulta, but I didn’t want this post to be so ridiculously long so I decided to split it up by stores. So I will be posting tomorrow what I got from Sephora as well as my regularly scheduled Friday post (especially because I have sucked so much at blogging this month and I miss you guys)!

Until next time,

Cheers! xoxo

Back From An Unexpected Hiatus…

Happy Monday evening everyone! I hope (if you celebrate) that you had a lovely Christmas and that Father Christmas was very kind to you!

If you’ve been following my blog for a while you know that apart from spending a majority of time on this blog I also work in retail. And I’m sure you can imagine how busy the last month and a half has been.

But I am happy to say that now that the crazy holidays are over and I can stop working 14 hour days and have my life back! Which means more blog posts, more makeup hauls and reviews and something super duper exciting coming sometime in January/early February!

So,

Until next time,

Cheers! xoxo

My Go To Lip Duo This Month!!

Happy Friday everyone! I hope everyone is excited and ready for the weekend!

I know I am, well at least today… I finally got a day off! But anyway moving on to more fun things!

So, let’s talk about my new favorite lip duo for this winter!

My Winter Fav Duo

Since I have been working so much, I’ve been leaning towards products that I know won’t dry out my lips and that I can trust will still be there at the end of the long crazy day!

And these two products are the winners!

First up is the Jack Black “Intense Therapy Lip Balm” in the scent “Natural Mint”. I got this in a sample bag from a Sephora order that I had placed and I am really really pleased with this lip balm. As well all know I’m a bit picky and my lips are a bit of a pain but so far, this stuff works!

Next is this beautiful product but Butter London! I’ve always heard about this brand and how well rated it is but have never actually tried anything from them. So when I was in Ulta a couple of weeks ago, I saw for the holidays this little gift set! It was their “Lippy” which is a liquid lipstick in the shade “Dahling” with the matching nail polish… I couldn’t resist. Not only because it was two FULL SIZE products for the price of one but because when I was looking at the lip colors this was the color I couldn’t resist… So it’s a beautiful mauve (more on the brown side but nothing too crazy) and it literally lasts all day. This stuff is amazing and feels so nice and not drying on the lips! I highly recommend trying this brand out if you haven’t already!

Until next time,

Cheers! xoxo

New Products from Clarins!!

Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope you week is going well! I can’t believe how quickly December is going!

Today I want to talk about something very exciting from one of my favorite brands, that I talk about quite a lot on this blog! And yes but the title of the post, I’m sure you would have already guessed that it’s from Clarins!

They very excitingly have released for January TWO new colors of the every so popular, amazing and wonderful “Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector”!!

Clarins New Releases

The one I was able to get my hands on is this beautiful red/plum shade in the color, “08 Plum Shimmer”. And it is just simply gorgeous. I mean, everyone raves about these (I have haha) they are just the perfect mix of a stain, balm, gloss that you could possibly want. Everything about this product is perfect from packaging, scent, build-able color pay off, as well as the color range. I didn’t think they needed anymore colors until I saw the two they released for January.

The other shade is a your lips but better shade and the number for that is “07” and you can bet that I have my eyes set on that next when the next pay day comes rolling around….

But I absolutely adore this product and the color pay off, it’s not too purple or too red, it’s just so amazing. And if you can get your hands on them I definitely recommend giving them a swatch!

Until next time,

Cheers! xoxo

I Hope You Accept My Apology…

Happy Monday everyone!

It’s been a while…

And I am so so sorry that I haven’t posted since last Monday, and without any warning just disappeared for a while.

My life became quite hectic at work, having me working about 14 hour days at the store, practically every day has me a little worn out.

But that’s no excuse and I hope you accept my apology and know that I am back, and I refuse to let this happen again! :)

Thank you for your understanding and support,

Until next time,

Cheers! xoxo

Suggestions!!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a nice weekend!

Today’s post is going to be short and sweet and may seem like a cop-out for today’s post… But I need your help!

This blog is a two way street. Yes I’m writing it and I post certain content, but without you all reading it what’s the point? It would be a diary then, but then why make it public if you don’t want someone to read it?!

Amy’sPostGradPath, is as much yours as it is mine.

And I need your help! What do YOU want to be reading? Is there something that you would love to see me talk about, or review, or do? I have thousands of ideas but as I’ve said before, this is a two way street and you all very much matter to me.

So leave me some comments and suggestions!

Thank you so very much,

Until next time,

Cheers! xoxo
