Ulta Haul! Products From L’Oreal, Bliss and Rita Hazan

Published in: Daily Beauty


“Girlfriend, good luck getting out of there with just one thing.”


I say this to myself all the time when I visit Ulta…because I’m usually going to get just one thing.

On my last trip it was Rita Hazan’s Root Concealer in Dark Brown/Black, because I desperately need to get my roots done, and I wanted to try something new/less expensive than this stuff.

Thirty minutes later I’m walking out with this…

Lots more products to test. I hope there’s at least one gem among ’em. It would be great if the L’Oreal palette works out to be a near-dupe for the UD Naked Palette. It looks like it has that potential.

Have you picked up anything good lately from Ulta or elsewhere?

Anyone else going to see the new Mad Max movie? I got talked into it by El Hub, so we’re going tonight. He’s very, very excited.

I haven’t seen any of the other movies, so I don’t really know what to expect, other than lots of muscle cars with guns and explosions.

Oh! — and Charlize Theron has a robot arm.

Wish me luck! 🙂

    I tried ELF makeup setting spray cause it was only $3, it’s okay. I’m looking for a good drugstore mascara that kind of does everything. My lashes are straight, not super thick or long so they need help but I’m tired of spending $30 for a mascara! Any ideas anyone?

    • Anne says:

      The Max Factor False Lashes line is a good one. There are different colours and versions, but I love the dark brown one in the purple tube.

      • Kwmechelle says:

        Hi, Anne. I used to love the Max Factor mascara but I haven’t seen it in YEARS! In fact, I thought it was discontinued. Could you please share where you purchased your tube?

        • Anne says:

          In Germany you can get it everywhere! I’m sorry to hear that you can’t find it anymore. I’m not sure if there are any German online shops that offer international delivery. I guess it depends on the country, although mostly they only offer international delivery for European countries. :-(!

    • Efrain says:

      As far as I know MaxFactor isn’t sold in the US and Covergirl isn’t sold in Europe because they’re part of the same brand. For a good drugstore mascara, try Covergirl’s Clump crusher (green tube) they can even get some falsies effect.

  2. Agata says:

    That’s so true, you can’t go to Ulta and pick up just one thing! I’m looking forward to hearing what you think of that palette. Although it’s kinda pricey for a drugstore one.

    I visited Ulta today too! I already knew before going through that door that I wouldn’t be buying just 1 thing. Looking forward to your thoughts on the La Palette and setting spray.

  4. Tulipthecat says:

    I’ve tried the setting spray and I think it’s ok. I got the La Palette Nude 2 but I haven’t opened it yet. I’ve heard good things. Hope you can do a look with it

  5. Lulle says:

    Are Ulta cotton pads any good? My favorite cotton rounds have just been “re-formulated” and now I hate them… I’ve been looking for soft, non-scratchy, good quality cotton pads for a while!

  6. Elena says:

    Ah I went to ULTA today. Got more cotton pads, a clearance nail polish that is such a 90’s shade and a Maybelline baby lips balm.

    I wanted more but I had some restraint today.

  7. Stephanie says:

    Oh I have put the Buzz Off stuff in my cart multiple times but I always take it out. I’d love to know what you think.

  8. Ginger says:

    I now get excited when you do ‘Ulta Hauls’, because we finally have an Ulta in our state! I love their body wash. 🙂

  9. Michaelle says:

    Didn’t go to Ulta, but DID get dragged to Mad Max with my hubby. Charlize is a badass! Not sure about the new Max – kinda prefer the OG.

  10. Pavithra says:

    Wow, your ULTA looks so big and fancy! I picked up one Urban Decay eyeshadow single from an ULTA not so long ago. The one that I go to is usually out of a lot of my favorites, and the testers are always missing 🙁

  11. I wish we had Ulta here! That nude palette looks really nice.

  12. Earlier this morning, my mother asked me if I wanted to accompany her to DM, the Ulta equivalent here in Germany, and I said: “Uhm, i don’t think I need anything.”
    Mr. Loca laughed so hard he almost fell of his chair.
    Of course I went and bought quite a few things…

    Lmao I don’t even go to Ulta with the intent of getting one thing anymore. I’ve become the same way with Target. I just don’t think it’s humanly possible to walk into those stores and not get sucked into an arm full of stuff you don’t need lol. I received the L’Oreal setting spray in my Target spring beauty box and I like it so far. Reminds me of my UD spray. I do think the price is a little high for DS but I’m glad it’s easy to catch a sale or coupon at least

    For some reason I can make it out of Ulta sometimes empty handed. I love Ulta though , was thinking of going there today .But Sephora is another story! I always buy at least one thing from them when browsing. I’m curious about the Loreal nude palette, but I have enough nudes really. I need my Estee Lauder night serum and some facial wash so I’m heading to the mall. Think I’ll wait for the dvd of Mad Max , but it’s cool that you went with your hubby to check it out.

  15. Lauren says:

    Your ULTA looks like the Mothership!! Have to try the root spray…I’m so happy you wrote about it! Thanks, Karen!

    I was just there today looking for a liner for my waterline. I use the Stila pen for my upper lids and tightlining, but it doesn’t work at all for my lower waterlines. My eyes are very sensitive so I have a hard time finding eye products that don’t make my eyes water. I was all set to buy an Urban Decay liner pencil, but at the checkout I saw the Pur Minerals Double Ego liner. One side felt exactly like my beloved Stila pen, and the other side was a pencil that went on nice and dark. I bought the dark brown color and tried it on as soon as I got home, and so far, it seems to be exactly what I’ve been looking for! I haven’t liked any other Stila dupe that I’ve tried.

    I also picked up the Tarte Showstopper palette. Will experiment with that one tomorrow!

    Okay, you win Wife of the Year Award for going to see that Mad Max movie.
    I saw like ten minutes of the one from the 90’s but it was just too violent and disturbing for me to sit through.

    I hope you survived last night’s showing. Did you survive? Are you still with us? Do you require a catervention?

    I bought a bottle of CND top coat at Ulta last week. I like Ulta but the one closest to me has a weird vibe.

  18. Trude says:

    I just did an Ulta order on Friday! I’m in vacation-prep mode so I’m stocking up. I grabbed an It Cosmetics Tightliner mascara (I’m terrified of running out), a set of two dual-ended It Cosmetics shadow brushes that come with a cute case, and NYX blush in Taupe (hoping it can work for my brows and contour, Too Faced Milk Chocolate is a little too orange in my brows for some reason).

    Would love to see what you think about the Bliss Fuzz Off! And cute outfit, BTW! 🙂

    My husband sort of dragged me to the Mad Max movie, but I really liked it a lot. It’s not like the old movies, exactly – it’s actually surprisingly girly, in a weird way – although you have to have a tolerance for some gore, I think. I’ve heard people talk about bringing their mothers to it, which is not something you usually hear said about an action movie. How did you like it?

    (I usually frankly avoid going into an Ulta store, because I feel like I won’t be able to control myself.)
