Ulta sent me some of the hot brands they carry to check out. Here's a closer look at Butter London Nails, Whim Nails, Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly eye shadow collection, Fiona Styles Mascara & Eye Veil, and it Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores.
The new Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly palette has GREAT reviews. It goes for $36 and it's a creamy and decadent eye shadow collection that has nine matte and shimmer shades. It also comes with a 3 step "How-To" glamour guide if you need help creating looks. It smells fab and the colors are incredible. I prefer the lighter shades (Banana is my fav base) but the darker colors are wonderful for creating more dramatic looks. Plus, the case is adorable. This is my favorite so far.
Butter London has a full line of high fashion cosmetics created for the catwalk. I checked out the nail polish in Yummy Mummy. This is a cool beige shimmering nail color, that's a great neutral for all Summer long. The line is 8-free and they go for $15 a bottle and they have tons of popping color options.
It Cosmetics makes Bye Bye Pores and over 1,000 people gave it a 4.2 out of 5 rating. They are saying YES to this finishing powder that won't make you look older. It costs $24 and it's a Poreless Finish HD Micro-Powder that will give skin a truly airbrushed look. Cheers to blurring out the imperfections! It you don't want a cakey piled on look, this has great texture and appearance, and it's not heavy.
Lastly, we checked out Whim. Nails. Whim is the Ultra brand of nail polish. They offer 58 colors with a base and top coat system, and they go for $10 a bottle. Party Perfect is a bright festive pink color and Tea Party Proper is a lilac purple.
