I recently stopped by Ulta during their 21 Days of Beauty Event  and picked up some new things to try. Its been awhile since I’ve done a favorites post so I figured I’d share! Of course, all  these products are Priceless Dates friendly keeping you cute while saving money. Check out my new favorites below!

bareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipcolor in Hemp

BareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipcolor – $12

I love liquid lipsticks and have been looking for the perfect nude shade. I think I finally found it in! This shade is “Hemp” and is part of the BareMinerals nude liquid matte collection. I love the soft, creamy texture and it smells soooo good! I’ve worn it with NYX nutmeg liner and topping it with Buxom’s Destiny gloss as an everyday look.  I definitely plan to buy a few more colors.

Tarte Double Duty Beauty Don't Quit Your Day Dream Eyeshadow Palette

Tarte Double Duty Beauty Don’t Quit Your Day Dream Eyeshadow Palette – $29

I’ve been considering investing in a Tarte eye palette but haven’t been willing to pay $45. Thankfully I found this smaller palette for $29! I love how compact this palette is making it perfect for travel. The warm tone shades make it great for creating simple everyday looks. It also includes a bomb highlight. Maybe once I get better with eye looks I’ll spend that $45.

NYX Micro Brow Pencil

NYX Micro Brow Pencil in “Espresso” – $10

I am a faithful ABH Brow Wiz fan. Unfortunately, I can’t always splurge on my usual $21 Brow Wiz and have to find a temporary (and cheaper) alternative. The NYX brow pencil was $10 and I think it measures up to Brow Wiz. My only issue is I wish the color was slightly darker but it is buildable. I will continue to use ABH but its nice knowing there’s a low-cost option when I’m trying to save money.

PÜR Fully Charged Magnetic Mascara

PÜR Fully Charged Magnetic Mascara – $22 (full size) 

I received this sample size mascara as a free gift when I purchased the PÜR Miracle Mist Hydrating Spray. Now ya’ll know I’m faithful to my bae Better Than Sex however this mascara surprised me! It gave me as much length as BTS and was easier to remove. I’ve only worn it a couple of times but I may have to invest in a full size next time I’m in Ulta.

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion – $14.50 – $27

I’m trying to experiment with different products and step up my skin care regiment. I have dry skin and was having difficulty finding products that kept my skin moisturized. Clinique’s Dramatically Different is the best cleanser/moisturizer combo I’ve tried and my skin feels amazing. The best part is the affordable price for a department store product.
