Soft Nudes and Pinks + a Mini Haul

Happy Halloween Dolls!
How are you all doing? I celebrated Halloween last night so I’m staying in tonight and watching scary movies :-).
For a few months, I had been all over anything military inspired in khaki and olive colors, but the fall sent me in a completely different direction. I’ve started to LOVE all things in nude and nude pink colors; the hue is really flattering and feminine, so girly without being a teeny bopper pink. A recent trip to Ulta fueled my current color crush. I picked up two Essie nail polishes in Not Just a Pretty Face and Eternal Optimist, $8 each; I also picked up two Ulta brand blushes in After Glow and Sweet Cheeks, $6.50 each. The total for these would have been about $30, but the polishes were on sale for buy one get one half off and the blushes were buy one get one free + an extra 20% off coupon…I got everything for about $16 :-). I LOVE sales!

The polishes are beautiful! They are completely opaque with 3 coats each and last about a week without chipping.


I hadn’t tried Ulta brand blush before, but I really liked the texture and color payoff on these. They are pretty finely milled (I didn’t blend them very well in the swatches). I plan on going back and getting more colors soon. BTW, I think After Glow is a pretty good dupe for NARS Orgasm blush, for a fraction of the price :-D.

How are all of you celebrating today? What are your current color crushes?

  1. I love the pale pinks too. I wanted more in the spring but couldn’t find the color in clothes I liked. Every fall I fall in love with deep purples and cranberries πŸ™‚ I’ve also been drawn to grey lately…

  2. ooh i want sweet cheeks! im really into grey right now, not very exciting but its such a pretty London-y colour…
