This is just a quick haul / shopping spree of some drugstore makeup and haircare products that I recently picked up at Ulta. I am really loving the John Freida line of haircare products; especially the Luxurious Volume line. My hair is really long, medium to fine in thickness, and has a slight wave. So when its humid outside my hair tends to get a little frizzy.

This shampoo and conditioner really helps to tame my hair and gives it a wonderful shine that is amazing! Now I do alternate my shampoo and conditioner routine so this is just one of several that I use when I wash my hair in the mornings. I'll try and post some of the other haircare products later.

The Maybelline color tattoo cream eye shadows are the big thing to have right now. So many people are raving about their texture and staying power. Now, while I haven't tried these yet, I have used other cream eyeshadows. I typically apply the cream shadow right after I use an eye shadow primer. For me, it helps to set the eye area and aids in reducing eyeshadow creasing.

I think the big draw for most everyone is the price. These are so affordable compared to the pricier brands. Just about everyone can afford to purchase the Color Tattoo cream eyeshadows. They currently retail for $6.99 at Ulta and there is a promotion going on right now. If you buy two of them you will get a third one for free.

The last item that I bought was the L'Oreal infallible eye shadow in iced latte. It's a powdery eye shadow that glides on smooth like butter. It is a light vanilla golden color and is similar to Stila Kitten but not quite as shimmery. I currently own both and I find that Stila Kitten leans more warm where as the iced latte, has more of a shimmery vanilla, almost neutral tone. If that makes sense, ha ha! Don't get me wrong, I do love both, but Kitten is $18 and this was only about $7- $8. So for the money and if you are on a budget, the L'Oreal iced latte is the better deal and the closest dupe, in my opinion, to Stila Kitten.
