This guest post is by Tiffany! She’s a beauty loving wife and mama, who enjoys romantic strolls down the aisles of Ulta and Target. When not writing about beauty, she’s writing about food cuz this girl loves to eat! Follow her at @dairylesscious for more ramblings!
Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 8th! Have you done all your shopping? Looking for just one more thing to get? Either way, I have some ideas for the beauty loving mama your life! Buttttt, if you just want to get yourself a lil somethin’ somethin’ that’s ok too, I won’t judge!
Since the day is drawing near, head over to your local Ulta or Sephora to grab these goodies!
- Tarte tarteist blush palette – $38
I love me some Tarte and their blushes are a favorite of mine because they go on so smooth and pigmented. This palette is a must have! You can find it at Ulta and get a free mini tarteist lip paint with any $30 Tarte purchase (while supplies last)!
- Lorac Take me to TANtego TANtalizer Bronzer Palette and Brush Set – $30
Summer ’16 is all about getting your glow on and this palette is a beauty. Plus for $30 you get the palette and a brush! Such a good deal, and if you buy it from Ulta they’re giving a free deluxe mini Cobra mascara with any $25 Lorac purchase (while supplies last)!
- Anastasia Beverly Hills The Glow Kit – $40
This kit is getting a lot of love all over social media right now. One way or another, everyone is going to be glowing this summer! Both color combos, That Glow and Gleam, are being sold at Ulta but Gleam can also be found at Sephora. In the Ulta magazine I received in the mail it says you get a free compact and dip brow pomade foil packet sample with any $35 ABH purchase at Ulta. I don’t see this online so it may be an in store only perk but is worth asking about.
- Tarte tartelette 2 in bloom clay palette $45
This palette is said to have 12 new “never seen before” colors which include 9 mattes and 3 lusters. Go get yours from Ulta and get the free mini tarteist lippie while you can!
- Benefit Do the Hoola Beyond Bronze Kit $34
How cute is this little set? I mean they’ve got you covered from eyes to lips to cheeks! I love the They’re Real mascara and y’all already know I’m all about the glow (pretty obvious by now right, lol!) It’s a Sephora exclusive so get by there and see if you can find this beauty!
- Smashbox Insta-matte $24
Another of my beauty favorites is matte lipstick. I think I’m slightly obsessed y’all! Seriously though, how good is it that you can transform your favorite lipstick into a matte version of itself and not have to buy an entire new collection of lipstick to try out this trend?! Head over to Sephora to pick this baby up!
- Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick $11
Word is Urban Decay is in the process of revamping and relaunching their entire lipstick collection. So they’re clearing things out which means their lipsticks are currently half off! This applies not only to the cream formula but the matte and sheer formulas as well! They’re sold out online at Sephora but you may be able to find them in a Sephora store or at your local Ulta.
Now don’t get me wrong, make up is fun but good skin care is everything! Here are some of me and my mama’s favorites plus a new one to try…
- Tarte Skin Squad Deluxe Discovery Set $22
Tarte has a new line out called Rainforest of the Sea and this little kit is a pretty cool way to try it out. Included are mini versions of the Rainforest of the Sea Deep Dive Cleansing Gel, Marine Boosting 4 in 1 spray, and Drink of H2O Hydrating Boost. Plus you get mini versions of their Lights, Camera, Lashes 4 in 1 mascara (another personal fav), an Amazonian Clay 12 hour blush in the color Oasis, and BB Tinted primer/sunscreen. It’s another Sephora exclusive so you can find it there!
- Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Serum $23.49
Now this and the moisturizer (#11) are my mama’s favorites. I figured if this is a Mother’s Day post why not ask her for some ideas?! She swears by these and she is beautiful if I may say so myself! It comes in scented and fragrance free formulas, and according to her is well worth the money. Buy it at Target and get a $5 gift card for select beauty purchases over $20 (deal ends Saturday). Also at Ulta for $23.19 on sale right now, regularly $28.99.
- E.L.F. Hello Hydration Starter Set $18
I was having a little mommy break in Target one day and came across skin care by E.L.F. so I had to check it out. My skin was going through some major postpartum dryness so hello hydration had me at hello… Literally! I saw this cute little kit but decided to just dive in head first and got full size products of the Hydrating Serum and Daily Hydration Moisturizer. I’ve been using it for about 5 weeks now and I’m literally like what dryness?! But if you (or mama) don’t want to jump right in though, head to Target and buy this kit.
- Okay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Moisturizer $23.49
Like the serum, this moisturizer also comes in scented and fragrance-free formulas. Use them in combination for soft, smooth, hydrated skin! Buy it at Target and get a $5 gift card for select beauty purchases over $20 (deal endsSaturday). Also at Ulta for $23.19 on sale right now, regularly $28.99.
- Essie Spring 2016 nail polish collection $8 each
This collection is inspired by Florida. Look how beautiful and bright those colors are! My favs are lounge lover and sunshine state of mind. Some of these can be found at Target and if you spend $20 on select beauty products (these polishes are included) you can get a $5 gift card. All colors available at Ulta!
- Sephora Breakups to Makeup Bags $24 – $26
So you’ve bought mama all these nice products, of course she needs a cute bag to store them in right? Right! Find these cuties at Sephora! $24 for the jelly bags and $26 for the canvas bags.
I hope y’all enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed look shopping for them and get some good ideas from it!
Happy shopping and Happy Mother’s Day!
