Hello Shiquers and welcome back to Nerdy Shique Universe! Well, still working on the Ipsy and BoxyCharm post since my BoxyCharm hasn’t arrived yet due to timing making it look like my box will be here today but because of President’s Day it meant no mail, so it won’t be here til tomorrow! In the meantime, another haul and this time it’s from Ulta and Target!
Ulta: So, this time with Ulta I was on the prowl for new NYX items and they sent me another free deluxe coupon for the Perversion Mascara! I haven’t finished my sample from Ipsy but hey it’s free and I do like the Perversion mascara and it sure beats paying for the price for a full size, even though I may get it at one point. I tried going to the Winter Park location since they carry more items but they didn’t have any of the new Intense Butter Glosses and went to Altamonte and man they were picked off by vultures!
I was glad to get my paws on at least one of the Intense Butter Glosses and that is in Napoleon, which is a peachy nude color and thought it would look nice since I do love my Peaches N Cream and Peach Cobbler glosses from the original Butter Glosses. I wanted to get Berry Streudel, Toasted Marshmallow, and Spice Cake but all they had left were the testers and Ulta can’t sell them. Sucks! I guess doing the buy one get one half off on lip items during the weekend really wiped them out! I did have better luck with the High Voltage lipsticks which got me interested through Color Swept Beauty! I tried finding the one she loved, Dalia, but they sold out like crazy! A lot of them were out of colors but I did manage to get one called Privelege, which is a pink color, and Rock Star, which is a light red and a nice way of going into reds. I did try going for Hollywood, which is a darker red, but they sold out of that one, there is always next time when they restock on everything and after a while the new dies down. I also was happy to get my paws on two of the new Prismatic shadows which they had a lot left of and got two colors that Color Swept Beauty mentioned and they were Tin and Punk Heart! I also remembered Tati mentioned Punk Heart since she was given some of the newer NYX stuff by a friend and knew I had to get this one because it’s a purple shadow and I do go for them because of my cobalt-hazel eyes. Tin is a silvery one that is a bit darker and it would also bring the gem green in my eyes from what people say when it comes to silver shadows on me. I may have to use this if I ever do my Ice Pokemon Trainer cosplay. And the final item is a cream blush, which I was sad that the Altamonte location didn’t have the new blushes in when Mondays are when they get a lot of new things delivered but the blushes that were new didn’t come in but I did decide to see what the blushes were like and picked up Rose Petal, which is a nice pinky shade! Good to try something I never tried before and NYX blushes are one of the things that do get pretty good reviews time to time from what I seen on YouTube. I will have to see with the restock!
Target: With Target, tried jump on the Easter LipSmackers since apparently some places started stocking all the spring and Easter items on Valentine’s Day, which is odd especially my mom saying some places started doing that a week earlier. I was hoping to get my paws on the newer Easter LipSmackers but was a bit too early and they haven’t stocked them yet! I did go into the make up section to see if the NYX section had the Intense Butter Glosses but didn’t, they just had a small section with the normal items! I did go into ELF to see what they may have new and all I found was two lip items and I got two lipsticks! One is matte while the other is a regular one. One of them is Rich Red and that’s the matte and the other is Rosie Go Round and I do like the lip items by ELF since I had the lip gloss set from Christmas! And then I got the 32 shadow set by them and I heard this from another YouTuber who got this and she recommended that people should get this and glad I found it! It costs $6 which is amazing when you normally find pallets like this for more than that! I did get one more item that I forgot to get while I was at Ulta and I finally gave in and got the Cover Girl Clump Crusher Mascara! ::applause:: I heard so so so soooo many good things about this mascara that it kept perking my kitty ears like no other! Oh yeah, kitty became curious and had to get it! I may have to wear this sometime this week or the next to try it out! Also, I did get the package with the free retractable eyeliner and packed it with my make up to take back with me to Daytona so I would have a back up black liner! I may have to grab my other black pencils as well before then!
That is it for this haul! I know it was short but hey I got a lot of new items and glad to try them out! I will have the Ipsy and BoxyCharm post up and another announcement…looks like Nerdy Shique Universe will be heading for Anime Festival Orlando, so look out for any convention spotlights for this year’s convention! Stay tuned!
