Yesterday, I popped into Ulta to see what all they had available for Mother’s Day.
After I received an email about the free tote with a $40 fragrance purchase, I knew I wanted to take advantage. Thought it would make a great gift bag for my mom’s gift.
When I clicked on the email to check out more details about the perfume, Ulta’s site had gift guides for different types of moms, which I thought was really fun and organized…
So which mom are you? Or which one is your mom? I tried to think of which mom gift guide I would fit into, but in all honesty, I probably could fit into any of the categories…even at different times of day.
Back to the fragrance promo, I’ve been wanting this Chloé perfume ever since I smelled a sample of it a few weeks ago. I knew it was coming home with me this time, so I could get the free tote.
Other Favorite Fragrances
Ulta carries some of my favorite products I use daily (both would make great gifts!)
Dries my hair faster than any other hair dryer I’ve ever owned in the past.
Currently on sale!
Have had mine over three years and still use it at least twice a week.
New Products I Want to Try…
I’m a big fan of matte lipstick. I feel like it stays on so much better than regular lipstick. These two colors from Lorac were new favorites, both matte. Like many other beauty stores, you can sample almost every color, but Ulta definitely has the largest variety and carries more products than any other beauty store I’ve been to. Receive free mascara with any $25 Lorac purchase.
I’ve seen videos of this one, but have yet to try it. They make it seem so easy. You’ll have to let me know if you’ve tried it and if you liked it. I’m still deciding.
Hot Tools Curling Iron
Hot Tools Curling Iron
While I use a straightener to get my waves, my stylist uses this curling iron with a 1 1/4″ barrel. I got this one to try. Loving the limited edition neon color, and it’s on sale for only $39.99!
Love the little compacts these Too Faced Blushes came in.
These dry shampoos come in a few different colors. They’re tinted, so if you’re between salon visits and need your roots touched up, try this.
New Products I Got Yesterday…
Ulta Japanese Eyelash Curler // Orly Nail Polish in Headliner and Push the Limit (Can’t wait to try these! Love how bright they are!) // Murad Spot Fast Fix Treatment (I have this one bump on my chin that I can’t get rid of. Hoping this will do the trick!) // Spornette Paddle Brush
(Paddle brushes are the only kinds of brushes I use when styling my hair.)
If you’re ordering, receive free shipping with orders over $50.
Again, all of these would make great Mother’s Day gifts, or just gifts for yourself!
