Who Doesn't Love A Good Beauty Find?

I love beauty products. It's one of my favorite ways to waste invest my money. I love it even more when I find a great new product that I haven't tried before.
 
This product obsession of mine leads to frequent trips to Ulta. I love Ulta because they have a great rewards program, you earn points for every purchase you make, and can later redeem them in store. Simple.
 
I've been saving up my points, and decided to splurge a few weeks ago and use them to try out some new products. I wanted to share the best, and the worst of these with you!
 
On the favorites list is the Maybelline Color Whisper gel color. I bought two different shades, One Size Fits Pearl and Coral Ambition. I LOVE them. I'm a big fan of plain 'ole chapstick, but it's nice to have a little color, and this does the trick! It's not sticky like gloss, or dry like some lipsticks. I'll definitely be buying more shades!
 
Next on the favorites list is the boscia Luminizing Black Mask *note, it's not sold at Ulta.
I was going to post a picture but honestly the mask comes out the same color as the bottle, and it's not a pretty sight! My face felt SO GOOD afterwards though. It removed a lot of dead skin, and made my pores visibly smaller. I highly recommend it.

Now, on to my not-so-favorite product. I'm a big fan of the Cargo blu_ray mattifier primer. I've blogged about it before but it's the best at keeping my makeup in place for hours, and my oily face under control.
 
I decided that I'd give a new primer a try since I was using my rewards points and bought the LORAC POREfection mattifying face primer. You know the saying "if it aint broke, don't fix it"? Well I should have stuck with my trusty Cargo primer because I did not like the LORAC one at all. My face was really oily, and my makeup didn't even last until lunchtime! I wouldn't recommend it.
 
Have ya'll found any great beauty products lately that I should try? I'd love to hear about them!

I bought the color whisper in a plum perfection (or something like that). I love it! It's apparently a gel which is why it is so smooth on. And I've been coveting the Boscia black mask all over the blog world and I'm starting to think I simply must try it. Thanks for sharing!

you've got me wanting to sprint to ulta now!

i'm not a lipstick gal, so i think the color whisper would be great for me. also, i have big pores and oily skin (baaad combo!) so the boscia and cargo mattifier are on my wish list now!

thanks, love! xoxo

I love face primer. It's a recent discovery and now I'm not sure what I did without it! I use Palladio face primer and it makes my skin super smooth and matte. It's pretty cheap too, at about $8.
