Ulta Opened!

Hey guys!

As some of you may or may not know, I like makeup. Although I wasn’t a huge makeup girl growing up–in fact, I’d classify myself as more of a tomboy than anything else–I have become increasingly interested in makeup over the last four or five years and particularly in the last two. Given this, I was excited to hear that Ulta would be opening in my hometown. Ulta and Sephora are two of the biggest makeup and beauty stores in the U.S. While Sephora offers mostly high-end products, Ulta is a happy medium between drugstore and high-end.

My best friend and life-long makeup lover, Ashlin, and I stopped by on opening day to check out the store and pick up some new makeup. We also stopped by Merle Norman and, between the two stores, I may have essentially replaced most of my current makeup. If you would like to watch the video, click here. Below I have posted pictures of what I picked up from Merle Norman and Ulta along with a list of the product names so that those of you who are interested can see what I got.
