New ULTA Ad: 6-26 September

4 September, 2009

Alrighty, this is a big, big ad, so let’s take a look at what we have going this time out! We start, actually, with my favourite thing-prestige makeup. Bare Minerals has their all-new matte foundation, complete with a lock/go sifter that makes it truly portable. Each container is $28, and when you buy a BE Matte product, you get a free eco-tote. There is also a new mascara-Flawless Definition Lash-and this is one that I want to try because it’s not only a plastic comb-style brush, but the teeth are very fine. CARGO, meanwhile, has a Must-Have kit for only $30 (worth triple the cost), and it has a bronzer, a Polynesia blush, Vienna eyeshadow duo, and TexasLash mascara in full-sizes. Plus, with a $25 CARGO purchase, you get a deluxe sample of their new LashActivator, which actually lengthens lashes! The thing I like about CARGO is their use of metal tins-totally reusable. Too Faced has their Safari Sexy kit for $34 (a $110 value) with a full size Lava Gloss eyeliner, a Mood Swing lipgloss, Totally Toasted eye duo, and mini sizes of the Pink Leopard bronzer, Lash Injection mascara, Shadow Insurance, and a flatbuki brush, perfect for on-the-go. It also comes packed in a full-size metallic pink tote. Smashbox has their own deals as well-two new ULTA exclusive kits. The first, for $24, is the Private Eyes kit, with a 10-shade creme liner and Brow Tech palette and a full-size Lash DNA. The second, for $47, has a 6-shade shadow palette, a Limitless Long Wear gloss, a half-ounce Photo Finish primer, and a blush/Soft Lights duo. Also, with ANY Smashbox purchase, you get a double-ended brush, worth $30-the 9 (eyeliner) and 12 (angled brow brush).

LORAC has a new Press Release kit for a whopping $20 with full-sizes of the Golden Glow Cheek Stamp, Front Of The Line liquid eyeliner pen in Black, Caffeini Martini Mocktail gloss, and Publicity Stunt lashes. The mascara is one that I admittedly have been dying to try, and $20 for four products? Hell yes. Pur Minerals, meanwhile, has a 1 ounce body butter with any purchase, and Benefit has a free full-size of Miss Popularity with any purchase. Studio Gear has their brand new Prime Objective SPF 20 face primer for $35, and with a purchase of that amount, you get a triple-compartment hanging bag for all your beauty goods. I have so many of those, I ain’t gonna lie. Meanwhile, Sue Devitt has something that I need to get ALL OF-the Hydrating Marine Minerals eye palettes. There are four to choose from-Blue Waters, Green Isles, Serengeti, and Kilimanjaro-and each of them has four colours. They are $37.50 (more than a MAC quad but I don’t care) and you get a free full-size Microquatic eye treatment with a $25 purchase. Bourjois, meanwhile, has a mini Effet 3D Mobile gloss with a two-piece purchase (although by the sound of it it might be any mini item), and Urban Decay is the first stockist of the new 24/7 sets, which apparently are $29 each. Hmm. With a $25 purchase, you get a sample vial of UDPP Sin, sadly not in the genie form. Paula Dorf has a free lip liner with $25 purchase, POP Beauty has a free Eye Magnet or Lip Magnet primer with purchase of the Face Magnet primer, Amazing Cosmetics has a free deluxe travel size of the Velvet Mineral loose powder foundation with Amazing Concealer purchase, Anastasia has a free deluxe Lash Lifting mascara sample with $22 purchase, Elizabeth Arden has a new mineral foundation for $37.50, and Stila has the new Barbie Loves Stila collection. There’s a new brand called Bloom that does these lip stains, and you have your choice of 4 colours at $22 each. You also get a free cosmetic bag with a $20 purchase. Finally, in prestige, Napoleon Perdis (yay!) has the new Prismatic eye quads and the Luminous Lip Veils, and with a $25 purchase you get a free full-size of Long Black Mascara. Additionally, all ULTA Professional is B1G1 Free. Read the rest of this entry »

New Fekkai Stuff

5 March, 2009

While browsing the Sephora site, I saw some brand new interesting Fekkai products. I’m a big Fekkai fan, and these things are insane!

First up is the new Au Naturel dry shampoo. Way back when, there was apparently a Fekkai dry shampoo. This is a nice one because it’s paraben, sulfate,¬†and preservative free, lacks a strong fragrance, and is not tested on animals. This product is $23 and a Sephora exclusive. I will have to check this out eventually because my hair gets very oily and I would like to prolong the amount of time between shampoos, as my hair is just getting brittle beyond all get-out. If you are traveling this is a good item to carry, as it is non-liquid. Read the rest of this entry »

Fekkai Glossing Line

11 January, 2009

One of the big things that launched in stores when I worked at BBW was Fekkai haircare. It’s been around for awhile, but it was a big deal as it was a brand that used to only be carried online and in the flagship stores…and suddenly, you could walk into your neighbourhood store and buy it. Well the product that we got shoved down our throats the most was the Glossing Cream-and how it was SO great, perfect for all, and the OMG I-can’t-live-without-it product of the bunch. I didn’t really believe it, that is until I got the chance to try it myself. Read the rest of this entry »
