Friday Five: Beauty

friday favorites(2)

TGIF, right? Anyone else feel this way? I love Fridays because it makes me feel like a little work pressure is off of me, temporarily anyway.

My top five this week are all about beauty and the great finds I picked up during Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty. Oh, and by the way, the Gorgeous Hair Event begins on October 1st with lots of great deals for your hair. It’s another 21 day event so don’t miss out on some great deals.

My favorite purchases during the 21 Days of Beauty:


Ka-BROW! Cream-Gel Eyebrow Color with Brush

This stuff is simply A.mazing! My eyebrows have never looked this good. Great eyebrows changes your look for sure and can I say I feel a wee bit more confident. Glad I bought two!

Lorac Front of the Line PRO Eye Pencil

I bought these in a sparkly black and plum. Another great purchase. They glide on and are not smudgy or runny by the end of the day.

Tarte’s Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara

I totally love this mascara! I had a sample of it that I used up and was thrilled it was one of the items during the sale.

IT Cosmetics No-Tug Waterproof Gel Eyeliner

When I went in to purchase the Lorac eye pencils, I was bummed because they didn’t have all the colors I was looking to purchase. But they randomly had these available on another day and the colors I was looking for were available. Score – they are fabulous!

Ulta Matte Lipstick

I wasn’t sure if I would like these lipsticks but after trying them, I went back and bought several additional colors. Why not? They were on sale for $3.00 each.

I don’t typically get that excited about Spring make up but I love stocking up on new items in the Fall. I’m thrilled with every purchase. If you’ve never tried the 21 Days of Beauty, you should! It’s a great way to try products on the cheap!

Thanks for stopping by today, friends! Hope you have a restful weekend!

Hope to see you on Monday. Remember the Common Threads Challenge starts on Sunday. Who’s in?

Where I’m linking up.

  • I'm in the market for new eyeliner so I will have to check out those two brands!
    • I hope you like either one. I'm totally loving both brands.
  • Ahh, I kept seeing the 21-day deals pop up but then would forget to purchase. There was a palette I really wanted. Ah, well. Definitely going to keep in mind a few of your favorites for next time I get a good Ulta coupon though - I have just started actually trying to do something with my eyebrows, and this product sounds perfect. Always searching for the perfect mascara too, so I'm interested to try that one out. Thanks for the tips :)
    • I don't know for sure how often they have the 21 day event but it's always worth it. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
  • I received some of the Ka-brow in my Birchbox and loved it! Shelly | The Queen in Between
    • Eyebrow game-changing for sure!
  • Lisa Richardson
    $3 LIPSTICK!!! Of course you bought more. Wish I'd gotten in on that! I love a good beauty find. Have a great weekend!!!
    • True, right! I'm totally loving every single one! Lipstick is a must in my book!
  • I LOVE Ka-Brow!
