Platinum Perk Ulta Haul

During the month of June I have been on a supposed "no buy" which we all know is not actually real because there were too many amazing launches for me to skip on. At Sephora there was the launch of the highly anticipated Becca and Jaclyn Hill Collaboration and the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette, and at Ulta there was the Lorac Pro 3 launch and the Tarte Swamp Queen collaboration. I'm happy to note that I missed none of them even though my credit cards have been begging for a break. 

I had been trying to stick to only limited edition purchases but last weekend Ulta had a Platinum Perk that I was unable to skip out on. These Tarte Double Duty Palettes were on sale for platinum members for only $19 versus their $28 regular price and seeing as two days before the sale I had actually picked one up in store for the full price, I had to immediately placed an order for the two at the discounted price. That's right, just two days before the sale I was in store checking out both of these palettes and wishing I could pick both up but that day I only got one. So this sale was really lucky for me considering I had just been eyeing them. 

Ultra Beauty has to be shipping over $50 so of course I had to add a few other items in order to reach that mark and now let me share with you everything that I picked up.



Tarte Double Duty Beauty Day/Night Eye & Cheek Palette in Classic Courage 

Tarte Double Duty Beauty Day/Night Eye & Cheek Palette in Star Power

Real Techniques Blush Brush

Real Techniques Sculpting Brush

Essence Lip Liner in Soft Berry 

Essence Lip Liner in Honey Berry



This haul was actually all sale items: not only where the Tarte Double Duty Beauty Day/Night Eye & Cheek Palette in Classic Courage  and the Tarte Double Duty Beauty Day/Night Eye & Cheek Palette in Star Power only $19 a piece, the Real Tenchniques and Essence products were each BOGO 50% off. Plus as usual I was able to stack a $3.50 off coupon towards the non-high-end items.


The Essence liners in Soft Berry and Honey Berry are a nice addition to my very scarce lip liner collection. Lip liners are something that I am trying to incorporate more of into my daily makeup looks and these are really nice for being so affordable. 


Right now I have a ton of lipsticks in these two tones so I can see these really being put to good use. 


The Real Techniques Blush Brush and Real Techniques Sculpting Brush are $8.99 and $9.99 a piece, so it was nice to find them on sale. I only own one brush from Real Techniques which I absolutely love and use every time I wear make up so I could not wait to get a few more to try out.


As for the Tarte Double Duty Beauty Day/Night Eye & Cheek Palette in Classic Courage and the Tarte Double Duty Beauty Day/Night Eye & Cheek Palette in Star Power, well, I die! These two palettes are SO pigmented, so stinkin pretty and just so creamy and soft that I can not wait to try them out on ma face. And what a bargain! This has been one of the best Ulta Platinum Perks this year!


So that was it for my Ulta haul. It wasn't a whole lot of stuff butI was really trying to just stay right on that $50 mark, which I did. But this has been my third Ulta order in recent weeks so I really have to start cutting down on purchases. But I'm so happy with everything that I bought in this haul and I cannot wait to try everything out.
