Pretty Little Things

Benefit SamplesI don't usually share this kind of thing, but I just thought these were too cute. I placed an order with Ulta recently (which included an Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Palette that I'm giving away) and these adorable Benefit samples were included with my shipment. I've pretty much stopped shopping with Ulta in store because the perks to being an online customer are so much better. You can use your Ultamate Rewards points plus get samples with every order plus get cash back if you shop with Ebates. This post isn't sponsored - I just really love shopping online at Ulta, hehe.

Anyway. The purpose of this post is to tell you that I think these items are cute. And that I was really pleased with assortment of products they sent this time. Out of all four products (Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation, Benefit High Beam, Benefit They're Real! Remover, and Benefit They're Real! Mascara) I've only tried one: the mascara. Might I add that it is a mascara I've repurchased a number of times and might be one of the best on earth? I'm bummed the foundation samples weren't offered in more colors though. I've used the darker one a few times and without enough bronzer it's okay, but it's hard to get the full effect with a too-light foundation. BOO.

Have any of you tried the They're Real! remover yet? I'm hesitant to test it out considering I have super sensitive eyes, but I might give it a go. The packaging is super cute, even in mini size! I'm also interested in trying out High Beam, which is a soft pink cream highlight.

Have you gotten any good samples yet? I feel like anything beyond a foil packet or tiny perfume bottle sends me through the roof. Free stuff is just... exciting.

Happy Sunday - or if you're reading this on Monday: I hope you have an amazing week!
