Ulta 21 Days of Beauty September 2018 Pt. 3

Hey, y’all!

This was definitely the day I was looking forward to the most during this whole event.


Viva La Juicy Soirée

from Juicy Couture

$98 for 3.4 oz; Juicy Couture

I don’t know why Juicy Couture perfumes always catch me by surprise. I always I assume they’re going to be overpowering florals or tummyache-inducing gourmands. This one is fresh and fruity with some subtle hints of spice. Like your parents always said, “Never judge a book by its cover!”

Top notes: Pink Kiwi and Mandarin

Middle Notes: Indian Sambac, Jasmine, and Water Lily

Bottom Notes: Amber, Musk, and soft woods

Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation

from NARS Cosmetics

This foundation comes in 33 shades; the sample came with 8 of them:

  • Punjab (Medium 1)
  • Patagonia (Medium 1.2)
  • Vallauris (Medium 1.5)
  • Santa Fe (Medium 2)
  • Vanuatu (Medium 3.5)
  • Barcelona (Medium 4)
  • Valencia (Medium 5)
  • Aruba (Medium 6)

I’m leaning towards trying Punjab or Patagonia first, maybe Santa Fe. Vallauris has too much pink undertone for me. It claims to be fade-resistant, sweat-resistant, and transfer-resistant for 16 hours. I’ll have to put it to the test…

Beauty Steal

Hyaluronic Dual-Response Serum

from Strivectin

I have been obsessed with this serum since I first tried a sample of it maybe a year ago. It makes my skin look so healthy and feel so soft. I can’t think of another product that my skin has responded so quickly to before. As soon as I saw this on the calendar of 21 Days of Beauty deals, I was pumped. The Hyaluronic Acid, NIA-114™, and Ceramides hydrate your skin and then help it to retain moisture.

This was a beauty steal on September 15th. Since I got it for half price, I went ahead and bought 2. 🙂

Were there any products during 21 Days of Beauty you love so much that you bought more than 1?
