Re: Absolutely Adored August 2022 Hauls

Thank you @SportyGirly125! I was so excited that they had them in stock!

Re: Absolutely Adored August 2022 Hauls

Nordstrom and Ulta orders. Did someone ask if I bought anything during National Lipstick Day/Week sales? 🤣

Swatches & a few notes:

I picked up, oh, a few lipsticks... :DI picked up, oh, a few lipsticks... 😄Yeah, not sure about that NYX gloss (eh, it was free). Guava doesn't look nearly as pink as I expected... hmm.

And a little Ulta packaging humor: 
Spoiler
One of my two Ulta orders arrived in a small padded envelope. The other one arrived in this big ol' box. When I saw it in the package room, I wondered what additional—and large—mystery GWP Ulta decided to send me. 🤣 I guess the warehouse ran out of smaller boxes the day they packed my order. My suitcase (the one I usually travel with that fits in overhead bins) would easily fit inside this box with room to spare.

This is the kind of thing Nordstrom and Target used to do frequently. (Eh, Target still has their moments.) At least Ulta padded most things well: the Nest candles were individually bubblewrapped, as were a couple other items. Not the Pacifica nail trio though: it arrived in a Pacifica box, which helped protect the bottles somewhat. Thank goodness most of the GWP stuff was bundled in a couple of plastic bags. 

Re: Absolutely Adored August 2022 Hauls

Great hauls @WinglessOne! Too funny but true about Ulta’s packaging.

Re: Absolutely Adored August 2022 Hauls

Thank you @Loretta55 !

Re: Absolutely Adored August 2022 Hauls

@WinglessOne great hauly mauly!  And the boxxxx... Hilarious, and confusing.

 

ETA: aww great on the donations!  Coffee and cigs is my fave on you.

Re: Absolutely Adored August 2022 Hauls

Thank you @danielledanielle ! 

Re: Absolutely Adored August 2022 Hauls

@WinglessOne Great haul. That Gucci looks like such a fun color for summer and looks great on you 🙂

Re: Absolutely Adored August 2022 Hauls

Thank you @AznAngelLiz ! 

Re: Absolutely Adored August 2022 Hauls

@WinglessOne ,

Thanks for the swatches and the lipstick looks!   And the box!

Re: Absolutely Adored August 2022 Hauls

@tsavorite  One of my favorite things about the box is the bubble wrap at the bottom: just enough to cover half the bottom of the box, and of course it had shifted around in transit. 😄 

Re: Absolutely Adored August 2022 Hauls

Oh yes Target (eta and Ulta) has had their packaging moments @WinglessOne 🙄 I recognized that oversized package!

 

Re: Absolutely Adored August 2022 Hauls

@eshoe  I got yards of air pocket padding as additional GWP! 🤣 Thanks Ulta! 

Re: Absolutely Adored August 2022 Hauls

That works @WinglessOne, that works!

Re: Absolutely Adored August 2022 Hauls

Wow! Your hauls are amazing @WinglessOne ! You got really beautiful lipsticks and they look amazing on you! Thank you so much for the details and swatches. And the Ulta box is hilarious! 😂😂😂

Re: Absolutely Adored August 2022 Hauls

Thank you @Saradestin! Sometimes I think Ulta’s just trolling me. 😂

Re: Absolutely Adored August 2022 Hauls

Excellent haul!! We both bought two of the Maybelline lippies! @WinglessOne 

Re: Absolutely Adored August 2022 Hauls

Thanks @lmaster ! I wish I'd bought only one 🤦‍♀️ and I might end up returning them—which I'd rather not do because I'm pretty sure Ulta still uses TRE to track and ding customers for "too many" returns. Let me know if shaking yours before application makes them less sticky. I still haven't tested that yet. (Note to self.) 

Re: Absolutely Adored August 2022 Hauls

@WinglessOne ok I did it, shaking it did not help the stickiness, however after about 3-5 min of it being on my lips, it definitely got about 75% better! Still a tad of tackiness but not as bad as the initial application, I even tried to let it dry a bit before touching my lips together

Re: Absolutely Adored August 2022 Hauls

Thanks for the very helpful update, @lmaster ! Good to know the stickiness was significantly reduced after shaking the tube. I’ll do that when I get home. 🙂

Re: Absolutely Adored August 2022 Hauls

@WinglessOne I also tried not to let my lips touch for like a good minute to see if that helped too, either way, this application was much better than the first time 🤣 but dang lipstick shouldn't be this tricky

Re: Absolutely Adored August 2022 Hauls

@WinglessOne I absolutely will let you know!
