New at Ulta | January 13 – February 2, 2020

Hello friends!

I’m back once again with some of the standout products from Ulta recently!

Of course the brand new ABH palette drew my attention because it’s beautiful, but there were a lot of Colourpop palettes released as well! It also looks like Ulta is getting some products that have been out for a while, like the Persona Cosmetics glosses and Colourpop Just a Tint Lip Crayons.

New at Ulta | December 23, 2019 – January 12, 2020

Hello friends!

I know I just posted one of these – but there were so many amazing new releases that I had to share this one as well!

The drugstore has really been knocking it out of the park with releases lately!  I have a ton of different lipsticks, concealers & foundations that looked interesting. Lipsticks in general this time around really drew me in – plus, as always, I love a good eyeshadow palette!

New At Ulta | June 10 – July 14, 2019

Hello friends!

Last month was looking a little weak in terms of new beauty releases, but this month is jam packed with them!  There’s a ton of beautiful new eyeshadow palettes, and some awesome mini sets of products I want to try.  Out of everything on this list, I’ve already picked up one of the mini Mac setting sprays, but I got the watermelon scent.

A lot of the makeup on this list is from Makeup Revolution/Revolution Pro/Revolution Skincare; how many brands can they have?! Additionally, Tarte has a few intriguing products on my list.

Recent Beauty Empties | Spring 2019

Hello friends!

I’m back today to share the products that I used up between March and June!  While it’s not as many as I wish, I’m still happy to make any progress.  Plus, I tried some amazing products this time around!

Recent Beauty Empties | Spring 2019 - A Midwest Belle

Bubble & Charm Body Wash “Cups of Tea”: This was not a bad body wash!  I really enjoyed the fragrance of it, but it didn’t foam up much which I like in my body washes.  I got it for free, but I don’t think I would buy it.

Purlisse Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Cleansing Milk: Purlisse is one of my favorite skincare brands, and this cleanser was incredible!  I would use it on bare skin and skin with makeup and it removed the makeup entirely without feeling like my skin was getting dried out.  I have a hard time getting in the routine of cleansing every night (when I’m not wearing makeup), but with this I actually really enjoyed doing it.  I would absolutely purchase this when my collection gets smaller!

New at Ulta | April 22 – May 19, 2019

Hello friends!

We’re here for another edition of my New at Ulta series!  I love browsing the New Arrivals section and seeing what peaks my interest; there’s always so much to choose from.  I actually ended up picking up a few of these after my no buy in April was over.  I grabbed the Ulta Dry Shampoo Kit and the MAC Aladdin Lipstick in Rajah!

An Introduction to Beauty 101

Hello friends!

One thing that’s important to know about me is that I am a naturally curious person.  I ask a lot of questions, some of which are better than others.  And I ask questions about everything.

As I started getting into makeup, I heard lots of words that I was unsure of what they meant.  To be honest, I still don’t know what some of them mean.  That is why I have decided to start this series: I have so many questions about makeup, skincare, ingredients, what the purpose of different products are, etc. and you know what they say: if you have a question about something, chances are other people do, too!

New at Ulta | March 3 – March 30, 2019

Hello friends!

After my first New at Ulta post, I decided that I really enjoy doing a wrap up of the products I’m interested in and wanted to start making it a regular occurrence.

One thing that I wanted to share is that there were originally items on this list that have been removed, such as the Morphe 35G palette and the Kylie Cosmetics Ulta Beauty lip kit.  I did this because when I had the chance to look at them in store I was seriously disappointed in the pigmentation of the 35G palette, and I didn’t love the color of the lip kit.

If you would like me to continue to share those products and just note them somewhere, let me know!
