Ulta Spring Beauty Bag Review

Hello friends!

Last month, Ulta ran a special deal where you could receive a 14-piece gift with an order of $19.50+ in Ulta brand products. I had never tried any of their products before, and needed to get a new setting spray and setting powder anyways, so I figured this would be a great way to kill two birds with one stone – I could get what I needed, and be sent a fun bag of other beauty items to try as well!

The bag itself is really pretty, and totally got me in the mood for some spring weather, which we’ve been getting a nice dose of here lately! I looove being able to wear just a light sweater outside and feel perfectly comfortable 🙂

Here is all that was included in the makeup bag gift with my purchase:

Eye Shadow Palette Full Moon, Romance, Brownie, Moonbeam, Bayou, & Give Me Gold, Dual Ended Liner Halo & Black/Brown, Brow Pencil Warm Brown, Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover Pads, Blush & Highlighter Duo Apricot & Yellow Diamond, Lipstick Mauve Me, Matte Lip Cream Allusive, Voluptuous Volume Mascara Jet Black, Flawless Primer, Nail Polish Lilac-ing You, Travel Size Brush Set Blush, Small Eye Shadow & Large Eye Shadow 

Positives: The bag is super cute, and will definitely be used this spring and summer whether for makeup, traveling, or as a clutch to take to the pool. The lipstick is a shade I’m willing to try out. I’m loving the shade of nail polish I received – perfect for spring! You can never have too many mascaras…and most importantly, it was all “free”!

Complaints: I’m not a huge fan of this shade of blush but I’ll give it a try and see if I’m surprised. The eyeshadows are pretty colors, but they are not very pigmented at all (which I figured would be the case). The only shades that might be useful are the highlights. The lip cream is a little out of my comfort zone, and doesn’t really seem like a spring shade, but I’ll still give it a try.

Overall, for only having to spend $20, that’s a great amount and variety of products to receive as a free bonus! It’s basically a full face of makeup, assuming that you like everything that came in the bag. I can’t wait to give them all a try, and maybe a few will be in my March favorites!

Are you a sucker for a good ‘free gift with purchase’ like me?

Ta ta for now!
