Feb/March/April Haul - Ulta, Sephora & Sugar Pill Cosmetics

Happy Belated Easter :)

I've been M.I.A on my blog but not playing with NEW products.  I'm so excited to share my new "friends":

Ulta -
For the month of March, Ulta was having an amazing sale. I think of all of my purchases, I was more excited to get Cargo Cosmetics.  Cargo really never goes on sale and since I have never own or tried it - it was a must.  Since I purchased these products in March, I have been using it daily and really like it perhaps close to loving it.

Cargo Fresh Face Complexion Kit in 'Medium'
Original price $72 and on sale for $42.

Kit Includes: blue_ray Pressed Powder, One Base (foundation/concealer), Activating Face Primer and Bronzer (medium)
Back of the box

Blu_Ray Pressed Powder 30 (Full Size) is high definition.  I LOVE this product!!  It doesn't cake your foundation, light on the skin & blends nicely. The powder alone cost $30.00

One Base (foundation/concealer) FULL SIZE
This is another product from CARGO that I'm truly loving - One Base.  It feels very light and smooth on the skin and gives a nice coverage (medium).  The only downsize I have is after pumping in and out a few times the color comes out of the tube so this area must be thoroughly cleaned.  

Activating Face Primer (travel size)

This primer is light weight and not sticky at all, which I like especially for the summer that is around the corner.

Cargo Most Wanted - 4 Travel Size piece Kit

This is a great and affordable kit to own for $15.  It gives that nice bronzy & glowy skin great for the summer.

Kit Includes: Coral Beach Blush, Lash Activator Mascara, Black Eye Pencil & Lipgloss


Lash Activator Mascara
I can't comment on this mascara because I gave it away.

Again, this is a very nice color for the summer when you just want to add some color without applying too much on your lips.  The color is bronzy with a hint of gold and the texture is light (not sticky).

 Eye Pencil - Black
Ok, I admit I got so comfortable to gel eye pencils for its texture being so smooth and glides on nicely that I was afraid to try this.  This pencil has a hard point. It's ok, but I like that it's really black.

Coral Beach Blush (travel size) '
Now, this blush was the main reason I purchased the kit.  It's 3 all in 1 blush, bronzer and highlighter.  This blush is soft so it doesn't have a strong "glow" but enough to know it's there.

Cargo Beach Blush in 'Miami Beach'
Original Price $30 Sale Price $15

Now this was my ultimate reason to shop at Ulta.  I've been wanting to try these blushes for a long time and I'm so glad I did.  All these blushes were on sale except 'Coral Beach,' which is why I purchased the kit above.  This color is the same as 'Coral Beach' except it has a brighter highlight that enhances your skin.  I LOVE IT!!!!!

I just have on Cargo One Base, Cargo Blue_Ray HD Powder and Miami Beach Blush to contour and last Tarte Blush 'Tipsy.'

Murad Skin Perfecting Primer - Dewy Finish -

I began playing with different primers due to my breakouts.  This primer has a dewy finish so it gives moisture to skin, which is perfect for my skin since is dry/combination.  I like the smell nothing strong.

SEPHORA - was having a 15% off deal so of course that is must :)

Now that summer is approaching, I want try different moisturizers that will be light and protect my skin from the sun. 

Doctor's Dermatologic Formula

DDF is described to be "Ultra-light, Oil Free & SPF 15"  So far so good.
Tarte Amazoian 12 hrs Clay Long Wear Blush 'Tipsy'

I LOVE Tarte blushes because it carries a variety of colors and last a long time on the skin.  The color 'Tipsy' is a coral/peach and it's very pretty.

Illamasqua Powder Blush 'Hussy'

This is a BEAUTIFUL color described as a "bright petal pink."  Illamasqua is known for its vibrant colors and high end price but worth every penny.

Sugar Pill Cosmetics -
Burning Heart Palette

Top Row/L to R: 'Flamepoint' (orange) & 'Buttercupcake' (yellow)
Bottom Row/L to R: 'Love' (red) & Poison Plum (purple) 


Loose Shadow 'Tiara'

L to R: wet - over glitter - alone

This is a beautiful silver color.

MAC - 
'Reflects Blue' Glitter

'Love Cycle' Mineralized Eyeshadow

Both of these colors are limited time only and can be used wet or dry.  'Love Cycle' has came out in other MAC Collections in the past.  

Sigma Brushes -

Top: Angled Kabuki F84
Bottom: Flat Kabuki F80



Sigma is one of my favorite brushes especially these synthetic brushes that are super soft.  These brushes are great to use on liquid or cream.
