As a birthday promotion, Ulta sent me a $10 certificate - which I only remembered until the last day!  I used it for a Zoya nail polish in Cinnamon:
I find it too dark chocolate since I am looking for a deeper copper color for fall.
But since I had a copper color that was too light on its own I got the idea to layer it over the darker polish - absolutely love it!  Women are so smart!
It is a subtle difference but enough to make me happy & achieve the almost perfect color I have been searching for.  So glad I did not give up!

My current Ulta order brought some new products I have never tried and a 'goodie' bag of lip products which were mostly full size!

I appreciate the gift but these are not colors I would use, soooooooo, don't you think this would make a nice giveaway??!!!!!!!!!! (I had to open the package so you could see the different products.)  Some are sealed & some are not - many times Ulta sends lip & skin products without any security seal - they should improve that situation.  Let me know what you think about the giveaway.
Here are the other items I received from my Ulta order:
The Clarins Glow Booster is so easy to use:  just add 3 drops to your face moisturizer and press into the face & neck.  It gives a very subtle glow without glitter!  You can use it everyday to build more color or just a couple of times a week for a healthy look.  The No7 advanced serum is wonderful - my sensitive skin is happy with this and it absorbs without any oiliness.  I also use it at night on the back of my hands.
The Hada Labo Hydrator is new to our market and I have not tried it yet so it will be reviewed later.
(All products purchased by me).

I found this pillow sham while looking for something else (of course!)
I have Ralph Lauren sheets in a denim blue on the GC's bed and thought this blue pillow sham would look nice - it will be comfortable as GS sits on the bed and plays games on his tablet.
 And since I was looking for something else, I found these accents pillows to go with the above sham!

 I hope fall is wonderful wherever you are!
