After a long, grueling quarter, I decided to treat myself to a few goodies at Ulta. Admittedly, the quarter isn't quite over just yet (it officially ends on Friday for me) but it is never too early to reward yourself for hard work! I picked up a mud mask, top coat, bronzer, highlighter, setting spray, and some face wash. I needed a bronzer refill, so I went with my tried and true, NYX Matte Bronzerin the shade Deep Tan. I wanted to give myself a few hours of R&R, so I bought Freeman's Charcoal & Black Sugar Mud Mask to use while I gave myself a a nice and much needed pedicure (that I topped off with my new Seche Vite top coat). I have been meaning to buy a setting spray since I haven't owned one since the beginning of the summer, and snagged the mini size of Urban Decay's De-Slick Setting Spray. It's been doing its job so far! My Dermalogica facial cleanser will soon be seeing its last days, so I picked up one of my staples: the Purpose Gentle Cleansing Wash. This stuff is amazing for sensitive skin, and leaves your skin feeling super clean. Finally, I splurged and bought the full-size version of Benefit's Watt's Up Highlighter - my absolute favorite one ever! After using my mom's mini version for the past two years, it was time I bought my own. I think this product gives such a beautiful natural glow, and is great for that "new" trend, strobing. I honestly don't get why using a crazy amount of highlighter needs a name, but if that's the case I've been "strobing" ever since I started highlighting. Believe you me, I will definitely do a product spotlight on this highlighter in the near future.

That's all for now,
