Spring 2015 Beauty Haul: Sephora, Ulta, Luxe Pineapple, and Morphe Brushes!

Hi dolls! I am finally on summer break and boy does it feel wonderful! Today I’ll be sharing some of my beauty purchases from Spring. I didn’t buy all this in one go, it took a few trips and some online orders – and I actually have an order that is still finding it’s way to me!

Let’s dig in, shall we? I went to Sephora about three times and one of those was during their VIB sale!

Sephora Master Cleanse Daily Brush Cleanser – $8.50



I’ve been using Dawn soap to clean my brushes for the longest time but I wanted a daily cleanser so that’s the reason I got the Sephora Master Cleanse! I’ve heard great things about both Sephora’s and Beauty Blender’s Solid Cleansers so I thought to try them both to figure out which one I prefer! So far I’ve been using Beauty Blender’s and I really love it! I need to see how long it lasts before making the decision on repurchasing it because $16 is pricey for a small bar of soap. 

I’ve been in search of a new foundation for quite some time now. I’ve been using Mac’s Studio Fix Fluid for the past few years and although I love the coverage, it tends to break me out from time to time. I’ve been using UD’s liquid foundation and I am IN LOVE! It’s super pricey but definitely worth it because it glides onto my skin flawlessly and gives such great coverage! It blends out super quick and nice and doesn’t cling onto my dry patches. 
I really liked how the UD concealer looked on me after trying it out in the store and decided to buy it without thinking. I think it’s great but not the most amazing thing out there. I like my Mac Concealer almost the same. They both cover under eyes well and don’t give me any problems at all. 


I don’t know how but I forgot to add my YSL Lip Oil to this photo! This was a total impulse buy and I blame Kathleen Lights! I saw her talk about it in one of her videos and did the same thing as her – I went into Sephora, tried it on, walked around for about half an hour, and fell in love! This lip tint oil is perfection, I want to own them all at one point in my life! It keeps my lips super moisturized and provides a long lasting color, I’ve been using it every day since I got it.
The last two things I purchased from Sephora are things I just wanted for no good reason at all. I don’t own a concealer brush so I thought..why not? As for the corrector pen, I read a fellow blogger’s review on it not too long ago and saw it in the sale section and thought to try it out! I’m skeptical on how well it will work but I’ll be trying it out later this week!
And let’s be real, I mainly went to the VIB sale for that free clutch. 
Now onto the few things I got at Ulta:
I went into Ulta to purchase a few NYX items – some of their matte lip creams, eyeliners, lip pencils, finishing spray, and brow wax pencils and they were out of EVERYTHING! I didn’t expect them to have half the things I wanted but I thought they would have at least one thing! This was the same for the other two Ulta’s went to after so needless to say I was quite sad. No worries though, I’ll be stalking NYX’s and Ulta’s website for the rest of forever until I get what I want. 
I did find a few gems though!
This will sound crazy to some people but I have never tried dry shampoo until yesterday. So far, I am loving this shampoo, it smells super fresh and clean and I will definitely be picking up a full size soon! I’m getting the Amika Dry Shampoo in my Birchbox this month so I’m really excited to try them both and see which I like better!


Zoya Nail Polish in Posh/Mat – $4.47


I’m not sure if Ulta keeps a lot Zoya and OPI polishes on sale but this was the first time I saw so many of them marked down! All of these colors are gorgeous and I’m really excited to try the reddish matte color! Also, Ulta had all of their brand products on sale so their polishes, which are normally $6.00, were on sale for $2.00! I wanted to grab one of every color they had but the whole stand was pretty much empty once I got there. 
LuxePineapple recently came out with their own line of lip glosses and I just had to get my hands on a couple of them! They released 5 shades and I bought the duo in Confident (top) and Divalicious (bottom). The duo cost $24.99 but now they are only being sold as single glosses at $15/per gloss. These glosses are so pigmented and long lasting! I’ve been wearing Confident more often but I love Divalicious just as much!
Here are photos of me wearing both shades:
Confident on the left and Divalicious on the right!
The last purchase for this haul is from Morphe Brushes:
I missed out on this palette the first time around but I was super happy when I was able to purchase it a few weeks ago. I did swatches and a mini review here if you’re interested!
And there you have it! I’m still waiting on an order from Makeup Revolution but other than that, these were my Spring beauty purchases!
What beauty items did you purchase this season? Let me know in the comments!

    Wow, what an amazing set of hauls! What do you think about the Beauty Blender cleanser? Is it a must? I've been using a gentle soap or baby shampoo to clean mine. Does the BB cleanser make cleaning it easier?

      Thank you so much! I like the Beauty Blender Cleanser, it really makes my life a ton easier when washing brushes and cuts my time in half! My only concern is that it'll run out super fast and it's so pricey to replace often.

    I've heard loads of good things about the UD concealer so I'll definitely have to try it out sometime soon!

    • May 20, 2015 / 2:48 am

      I really do love it but don't reach for it often, I'm too afraid to use it up quickly!

    I've tried both the Amika and the Batiste dry shampoos and I like the Batiste better. I just feel like it does a better job at soaking up the oil from my hair (that sounds so gross!), and it's way cheaper. Let us know how those solid brush cleansers are. I've never used one but they look like they'd make cleaning so easy and effortless!

      I'm so glad you mentioned this, I really hope I like the Batiste better because the Amika is so much pricier! The solid brush cleanser is worth it if you're looking to clean brushes faster!

    After my doctor's appointment, I got 2 of my fave Cinderella Morgan Taylor polishes which are both Blue shades at JCPenny! I went to Ulta and got Mizani Wrap foam for $8 !!! I also went to Sephora and got a small lip pencil, rose mask, and mini Tarte face set!!

      Ahhhhh I want those polishes so bad but cannot justify the price! I hardly ever pay full price on polishes (I'm cheap like that lol!) You got some great goodies though!

    • May 20, 2015 / 2:50 am

      Thank you! I'm glad to hear that, I haven't opened the Sephora yet but plan to soon!

    You got some great buys girl! My Ulta is ALWAYS out of NYX stuff, its so annoying. I always have to order online.

    Those Luxe Pineapple glosses look GREAT on you. I'm definitely tempted to get some myself! xo

    • May 20, 2015 / 2:52 am

      Thank you SO much Denise!! Yes, I definitely recommend them, they lowered their prices so now they're $13 a piece! I'm tempted to get the last 2 soon!

    I've heard so much about the Urban Decay concealer but I'm still undecided as to whether or not to get it! xxx

    • May 20, 2015 / 2:53 am

      I was the same when I bought it! I don't find it super useful on acne scars but I love it for my under eyes!

    Oh My I need to try these so bad. I wish we had more in the Uk. really want to try that concealer. x
