We tried to be good parents – spending a school holiday on educational activities like going to the Houston Zoo. It was cold and rainy, but we bundled up with umbrellas, so we could educate our children with “The Scoop on Poop.” After a few hours, we were ALL like “Fuck this, let’s go shopping instead.” This time, it was my BFF’s daughter who brought up going to Ulta.
We HAD to get Ulta’s Spring Gift with Purchase. The super cute bag came with Ulta Amped Mascara in “Jet Black”, 3 Eye Shadow Quads, Brow Compact (I’m curious about the brow wax), Bronzer/Blush in “Splendor”, Dual-ended Eye Liner, Lip Crayon in “Oh!”, Mini Nail Lacquer in “Peach Parfait”, Butter Balm Lip Gloss in “Thumblina”, Color Pure Loose Eye Shadow in “Yolo” (gross name) and 3 makeup brushes.
I had to spend $19.50 on Ulta products to get it, so I got a Retractable Kabuki Brush ($8.99 – I’ve got a lot of traveling planned the next few months), Ulta Matte Lip Cream in “Stirring” ($9) and Ulta Brilliant Color Lip Gloss in “Berry” ($8). The coupon I had was for 20% off one item. Lame.
Pixel Cosmetics are on extreme clearance, so I picked up Pixel Lip Tint in “Joyous” ($1.49) and I let Lily pick a nail polish for $.69 – she picked “Turquoise the Noise”.
I checked my account – only $221 until Platinum status in 2016.
