Getting My Vitamin W at Ulta Today, Where I Peeped Some Pixel Cosmetics, NYX, Physicians Formula, Earth Therapeutics and Natural Life

Published in: Ulta


Oh, hello! Fancy meeting you here!

Wandering around a store like Ulta is like chicken soup for my soul. 🙂

I hope you’ve been having a good week, but I gotta be honest — this hasn’t been one of my all-time best. Nothing big. Just the rainy weather, I think.


Buuut, today the sun came out, so I pulled myself together, did what I had to do, and stopped by Sephora and Ulta to get some vitamin W (for W-indow shopping).

I saw a bunch of cute stuff at Ulta (the one on Francisco Blvd. in San Rafael), like these things from NYX, Pixel and Physicians Formula…

Pixel Color Cosmetics

Pixel Color Cosmetics (pieces are $2.49-$5.99 each)

Pixel Double Pan Eye Duos

$5.99 Pixel Double Pan Eye Duos

And then there’s this brand called Natural Life. They make purses and other accessories with spunky, inspiring sayings and bright colors and cute prints.

Natural Life Is Easier Zipper Pouch

Of course, I couldn’t leave empty-handed…

Well, I mean, I didn’t want to leave empty-handed. 🙂

I walked out with a couple of random things — a Hello Kitty Cosmetics Headband by Earth Therapeutics (I’ve been needing a headband for when I wash my face at night) and a bright pink, orange and turquoise Boho Bandeau by Natural Life.

I’m pretty fired up about the Boho Bandeau!

Love the colors. Gotta give it a try with a hot pink matte lip, or maybe some turquoise eyeliner along the lower lash line…


The packaging has a bunch of pictures of different ways you can wear it.

That’s cool…but ya know, I’ll probably just use it as a headband, LOL!

Have you been getting your vitamin W lately? It’s important, you know. 🙂 Let me know if you’ve found anything cute.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    The revenge sets seemed like nice travel or starter kits for someone looking to build a neutral arsenal!

    I really like that Primal Colors promo pic. What a cheery burst of rainbow color! I didn’t know that Earth Therapeutics was doing some Hello Kitty licensed stuff – that’s pretty cool! I bet you’ll be rocking that bandeau. Btw, sweet flats in your pic! I like how the gold sets off your hand swatches. 🙂

    • Karen says:

      LOL, thanks. I’ve been trying to become one with flats. They still hurt my feet but I’m getting used to them! Are you a Hello Kitty fan too? I kind of see that in you.

      • Kim says:

        I think we’ve found our shoe common ground. Flats hurt my feet, too (because they don’t have Nike Air technology). hee hee!

        I think Hello Kitty is super cute for the younger crowd. My sister was crazy over it in her 20s. I’m usually jealous of Earth Therapeutics’ packaging – they do a really nice job. 🙂

    Wow loads of color!

    Hey Karen! This is my first comment on your blog and I’d like to say Hi and that I also bought the same Hello Kitty headband when I was at Ulta a couple weeks ago! I’m a big Hello Kitty fan so there’s no way I’d miss it, haha. It is adorable! Although I had to have it stretched out for a few days before I used it (it was so tight out of the packaging).

  7. Iris says:

    I like those bags and wristlets. I wish we had an Ulta here.

  8. Sylirael says:

    Those bandeaus are great! I have one for when I’m hiking – as it shows on the packet you can turn it into a balaclava, and keep your ahir out of your face, and shield yourself from the sun – it’s awesome! 🙂

    I’m loving the Natural Life stuff. I like unique things like that. I’m also loving that NYX is coming out with colors similar to MUFE. I have a gift card for Ulta so I may take a trip there soon but I was going to wait until my St. Lucia trip is closer to get some good travel stuff.

    I have a 20% off Ulta coupon right now, so I’ll definitely be hitting that up this weekend! I also have a 15% off VIB coupon for Sephora, this could be bad.
