The one with the berry beauty products.

Ulta Haul

Makeup Haul

I had been wanting to buy some of the new Too Faced La Crème shades since I heard about them in December. I kept checking my local Sephoras without any luck. Then on Monday, I popped into Ulta and walked by a beautiful display of all of Too Faced's new products. I even had a 20% off coupon with me so it felt like fate. : )

Coupons at Ulta are a bit weird. They usually come with a lot of fine print, and by the time you are done reading. you realize the coupon excludes prestige brands. This particular coupon did have some exemptions, but happily for me the products I was interested in all qualified for the 20% off.

Zoya Aurora

  • Zoya Aurora: This polish I first heard about on Mary's blog. The color is just as unique and beautiful as she had said. Even Jer commented that he liked my nails last night.

Tarte Flush

  • Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Flush: If this blush looks crazy that's because it is. This is definitely not a color that I'm normally drawn to, but during a recent outing, Sarah pointed this blush out to me. I went home and looked up reviews. It really is stunning if used with a light hand. I have found that the Real Techniques Stippling Brush is the best way for me to get a natural application.

Too Faced La Cremes  

  • Too Faced La Crème in Bumbleberry (top) & Loganberry (bottom): These were what prompted this post. The La Crème formula is one of my favorite lipstick formulas, and berry shades I find very flattering and easy to wear. Bumbleberry is a slightly browny rose berry, and Loganberry is a true pink berry in my eyes. I was also interested in Teddyberry but found it to be too similar to Spice Spice Baby to justify the purchase. I'm incredibly pleased with these and would recommend checking them out if you haven't already.

  1. You look absoloutly beautiful in this picture! I love berry lip products and I've never tried anything from Too Faced, so maybe their lipsticks would be a good place to start!



  2. This is my first time commenting, but I just love your blog. Your makeup tips are always insightful. You make me want to be a little more courageous when I put my face on. You've got the best tips! I think I might have to stop by Sephora today to try the Too Faced La Creme.

  3. Every time I read your posts, you make me want to go paint my nails and play with makeup. And yet here I sit, naked nails and naked face...ONE OF THESE DAYS I WILL USE YOUR TIPS. I promise.


  4. OMG OMG OMG!!! I must get that nail polish. It's PERFECT. I adore glitter polish, especially anything in a purple hue.

  5. You look so beautiful in that picture Ashley! The Zoya polish is really pretty. I just love looking at the different pictures you post. Thanks for sharing!

  6. That blush? Amazing! I think I might need it too! As well as the Loganberry lipstick :) Gorgeous photos as always my dear! xo

  7. Gorgeous photos and lovely post! I've been hearing great things about Tarte Amazonian Clay blush and have added it to my must-try list (once my current NARS runs out).
