I loved that they had Breast Cancer Awareness products on display. They also promoted their "Donate With A Kiss" campaign. For every $1 you donate to Breast Cancer Research, they add a "kiss" to their window (higher donations get you certain gifts: while supplies last) and a chance to win a beauty bag. 100% of the net proceeds from specially marked Philosophy products are donated. I love Philosophy's body products and perfumes.
I went over to the Benefit cosmetic area. It's super cute. All they need is a pink sofa & a chandelier and it would be complete. HaHaHa I love the packaging for Benefit products. I didn't know it, but they have a Benefit brow station, where they'll do your eyebrows. I thought that was neat. My favorite products from Benefit are: POREfessional, Watts Up, Bo-ing!, Cha-Cha Tint, High Beam, and Coralista.
Where I spent most of my time was in their Beauty Smoothie section. OMG'd! I thought I was in heaven. Buttercream Cupcake, Strawberries & Champagne, Creamy Cocolada, Apple Envy, and Coconut Lime Cooler. I think I'm partial to baked goods! I LOVED the Buttercream cupcake! It smelled so good. If you can, check out this line. They also had a Limited Edition Apple Tart and Pumpkin Latte. Buttercream Cupcake and Pumpkin BABYYY! Those were the best! :)
So why did I come here? I wanted to sample the Beauty Smoothies above and also Marc Jacobs Honey perfume. The perfume was ok. It's a nice soft scent, but it didn't have me "buzzing" or "swarming". You know what I mean?
My absolute FAVORITE primer! Smashbox!!! I love this stuff. They have some new ones!
I didn't realize, but ULTA also carries a lot of well known drugstore brands like Cetaphil. My dermatologist recommended it when I was having skin problems. It's great. If you do purchase Cetaphil, ONLY buy the Gentle Daily Skin Cleanser for ALL SKIN TYPES (it's the best). The other cleanser is a gel, which I didn't like. Not too hip on their moisturizers. Ulta is like one-stop shopping. ULTA also has a SALON! Didn't know that! HaHaHa Has anyone tried the YES TO CARROTS line? I might review them next year. Yes, I've made a list of products to review for 2014. I'm excited.
Another thing that surprised me was they carry The Body Shop products! And how cool is this Girls On The Go! Collection? I thought they were funny! I kept thinking about the character Veruca Salt...I WANT IT NOW AND I WANT IT DELIVERED! HAHAHAHA
Why was my skirt blowing earlier? Well, a storm was brewing! HaHaHa when I walked out it began to rain. I forgot to tell you guys, you can hear my voice or sound on Vine clips by clicking the sound symbol (upper left corner of pic). Just click the red X. Have A BEAUTY-ful Wednesday! Oh, I didn't buy anything (even though the buttercream was calling me). Trying to be good until Thanksgiving $ales :). Let's all pray on that! HaHaHa
