Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope.
I’m back with another beauty/makeup tag. This one was created by Emily Noel on her Youtube channel on the video entitled What’s in My $1,000 SEPHORA FANTASY BASKET… TAG! I thought this one was so fun to watch and if you’ve been following me for any stretch of time then you know how much I love beauty/makeup tags!! Today’s post is part 2 What’s In My $1000 Ulta Fantasy Basket too.
So let’s peek in on my ULTA Fantasy Basket ….
Question One: If money was object what would you throw in you ULTA dream cart?
It’s billed as a silky gel emulsion, rich in natural ingredients, that hydrates and primes to improve foundation or powder application and promote smooth texture with Vitamins E and C that protects with antioxidants, while caffeine calms skin. Illuminating pearl powders reflect optic radiance. It comes in 2 shades: Yellow is especially effective on deeper skin tones and Pink for fairer skin tones. This formula disappears upon application, resulting in a beautiful glow.
I haven’t purchased anything from MAC in a while. I keep meaning to but there are so many newer products that I just keep pushing the MAC products that I want to try to the bottom of my wish list.
This primer sounds amazing and if I had an extra $1000 to blow I would definitely pick this one up.
It’s billed as a a water-based primer with light-reflecting pearls that enhance skin’s natural luminosity and extend the wear of makeup.
I have so many primers I need to get through but I really REALLY want to try this one. If money were no object I would purchase a few new primers and this would be one of them.
It’s billed as a skin-smoothing primer with antioxidant protection against pollution, adding moisture & radiance immediately & overtime with an optical blurring blend that diffuses the look of pores leaving skin looking and feeling silky smooth and perfectly prepped for flawless makeup application.
I fell in love with the foundation in this same range so I would want to try the primer too but until I get through some of my older primers I can’t justify purchasing any new primers.
It’s billed as an ultra-lightweight liquid foundation that offers skin-perfecting benefits and high coverage in a buildable and breathable formula to provide a natural matte finish. The benefit claims are : Light-Fitting Cover Complex that is a combination of Flat Cover Pigment technology and Air Pore Powder, ensures that each layer of product is thinly applied for buildable coverage that’s lightweight for a smooth finish, Lumilayer Pigment that keeps skin looking bright and radiant by preventing product oxidation, Infused with ingredients to keep skin hydrated for skin that appears healthy and smooth, and Crease-proof, long-lasting formula built to last all day. It comes in 18 shades (3 shades for deep skin)
I really enjoy the VDL primer and I saw a review on YouTube by Taylor Wynn about this foundation and it just looks so amazing! It’s a satin formula and sets down almost all the way without needing powder, but when you combine it with powder it becomes transfer proof.
It’s billed as a next generation formulation that’s infused with skincare benefits and is weightless, long lasting, has adjustable coverage, is a vibrant matte yet hydrating formula infused with biomimicry pigments that thinks like your skin to give that flawless finish and blurred effect. The blurring technology minimizes the look of pores, softens fines lines and leaves you with a flawless base. It claims to have adjustable coverage and be hydrating. It comes in 51 shades with plenty of shades for each tone category.
I have this on my wish list. I just haven’t been able to get my hands on my shade. Since this is fantasy, my shade would be in stock!
It’s billed as an artistry essential that delivers light to medium, buildable coverage with a natural-looking finish and claims to leave skin hydrated, brightened, and even. It comes in 34 shades (9 shades for deeper skin)
I am intrigued by this product. I keep meaning to try it but again I have so many things I am keen to try that having another NARS foundation just isn’t a priory at the moment but with an extra $1000 in my pocket I would snag a bottle to try out.
It’s billed as a hydrating formula that contains a moisture fusion complex to immediately moisturize and feed the skin. Protects with SPF 30 and is perfect for all skin types. It offers all-day wear and sheer to medium coverage in stay-true color. It claims to be long wearing and non cakey or streaky and comes in 23 (6 for deep skin) shades on the MAC website and 16 shades (4 for deep skin) at Ulta.
Again I keep meaning to purchase some MAC products but there are so many newer products that I just keep pushing the MAC products that I want to try to the bottom of my wish list.
It’s billed as a luminous liquid foundation with 15 hours of hydration and weightless medium to full coverage that delivers a perfectly glowing finish that looks luminous in any light. It claims to have immediate glow & improved natural luminosity within 1 week. It claims that skin appears more even and the appearance of dark spots are reduced after 4 weeks of use and to be powered by Silver Ear Mushroom Extract to hydrate and smooth skin instantly, for maximum skin comfort. Replenishes skin while softening the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It claims to be a weightless medium to full coverage foundation that looks like second skin with flexible polymers that melt into skin that is resistant to oxidation. It comes in 30 shades (8 shades for deep skin).
After trying the sample card I had of the concealer in this range I just have to test out the foundation now too!!!! So, if I had $100 to spend, I would pick up this foundation for sure!
It’s billed as a weightless, full coverage, light weight, satin radiance concealer that goes on seamlessly to instantly conceal imperfections. It claims to be creamy, smooth, full coverage, skin like, and long lasting. It comes in 20 shades (10 for deeper skin tones)
I have so much concealer that I just have to choose new concealer s carefully…. but I feel like if money was no option at the time I would definitely choose a few new concealers to go with the foundations that I would purchase.
It’s billed as an ultra-fluid formula with medium-full buildable coverage and a natural finish that hydrates and gently diffuses the appearance of imperfections, dark spots and circles, and any discoloration. It claims to be 8 hours of wear, non creasing, non caking and streak resistant. It comes in 16 shades (4 for deeper skin tones)
I would purchase this one to complete my MAC complexion range, since I would have purchased the primer and the foundation. I also would want to test this formula out since I don’t really like the MAC Pro-Longwear concealer.
It’s billed as a medium to full coverage, weightless concealer that perfects, hydrates and blurs, with 12 hours of crease-resistant wear that won’t crease. It claims that it flexes with skin to seamlessly conceal under eye darkness and facial imperfections with all day hydration creates a crease-resistant, natural finish.It comes in 22 shades with 5 shades for deeper skin tones
After testing out the sample card of this concealer I am so keen to purchase the full size, however I did just purchase 2 new concealers and I have a ton of other concealers that I have to get through so I would have to wait until either I decluttered a bunch or used up a bunch before purchasing this one …. however with money not being an object I wouldn’t care that I have so many concealers open.
Bronzer and Contour:
It’s billed as being buildable shades for sun-sculpted dimension. A silky, matte formula adds depth and dimension to the face with lightweight, buildable coverage
I’ve always wanted to try this bronzer but I didn’t want the shimmery formula and now that it’s come out in a matte formula I’m super keen to try it.
It’s billed as a double ended contour and highlight stick that’s an easy to blend illuminating cream stick infused with Lychee extract known to offer antioxidant and hydrating properties. It claims to be a buildable formula that delivers that ‘glow from within’ finish for a subtle glow or turn it up and amplify the look to shine on everyone with radiant shimmer. Easy direct application allows you to glow and go with style. It claims that the sculpt side is a silicone-free, melt-on-contact pigment stick with exceptional, yet undetectable coverage. Made with 28% naturally derived ingredients and 30% pure pigments. This contact melting formula creates a smooth, lightweight layer with a soft matte finish. Buildable, this long wear formula won’t budge. It comes in 6 shades (3 for deeper skin).
Now that I’m into cream bronzers and highlighters I am very interested it trying this one out. I don’t see many people talking about this one and since Uoma is on my radar of brands to try I would most definitely add this to the products I want to try.
It’s billed as a kaleidoscope of thin and dazzling pearls that redefine the concept of light and comes in 6 shades.
I have been keen to try these ever since I saw some of my favorite YouTubers using them. I just never seem to remember that I want to try them until after I’ve completed my beauty buys for the month so with an extra $1000 I wouldn’t have to worry about forgetting that I want to add it to my beauty buys for the month.
It’s billed as an illuminating ivory highlight that gives off a warm glow that will make fair to light skin tones beam has liquid-to-baked technology.
Ofra is just not one of those brands that’s on my radar but this highlighter is really pretty and I’d be willing to try it if I had the extra coin to just pick random things to try.
It’s billed as a long-wearing, silky-smooth highlighter for a soft, luminous glow that is weightless and lasts all day.
Clinique is another brand that’s not so far up on my radar, although there were some things from their line that I am keen to try… most of which are in the POP line… this highlighter being one of the them. It’s cute, and the swatches I’ve seen are so ethereal.
It’s billed as a liquid highlighter for face and body that gives skin an all over pearlized glow. It has multi-dimensional micro-pearls that are suspended in BECCA’s crystal-gel formula to give skin a pearlized glow that is transfer and water resistant and comes in 5 shades.
I have a sample of the shade Passion and I absolutely love it! I would totally snag a bottle of this is I had extra money to spend!
It’s billed as a vibrant yet natural-looking cheek color that looks virtually powderless and silky smooth with a stay-true formula and comes in 8 shades.
I have been keen to try this blush for so long and it’s always out of stock so in my fantasy this shade is in stock and I would snag one!
It’s billed as an innovative ultra-smooth, cushiony blush that creates a flawlessly radiant look when applied with fingers or a brush a creamy formula provide a pinch of foolproof, sheer-to-medium buildable color that comes in 11 shades.
I’ve never really liked the MAC blushes but this is a new texture of blush and I’d be intrigued to try it out I just don’t want to spend $30 on something I may not like ….. so into the fantasy basket it goes.
Brows and Mascara:
It’s billed as being inspired by the old Hollywood trick of using soap to set brows in place, Iconic London’s customisable brow styler adapts to the look you love – from fluffy and feathered to groomed and sleek. unique formula brings together all the best bits of brow soaps, waxes and gels in one silky, conditioning balm. It’s a clear film over your brows, it gives unbeatable lift and hold with zero chalky residue or crunchiness. and claims that is grips every single hair and boosts sparse patches and makes arches appear thicker, to save precious brow-filling-in time. can be applied wet or dry.
I love the soap brow look, typically I just use a bar soap to get the effect. I don’t see the need to spend extra money from my beauty budget for a soap brow product when I have a bar a soap that lasts for such a long time but with an extra $1000 I wouldn’t mind testing out some of these big brand brow bars.
It’s billed as a groovy high precision pencil to draw in brows with micro-thin hair like strokes for the most natural results. It claims to be an ultra-fine, brow pencil in automatic retractable format that guarantees that every stroke is always micro-fine. The texture is powder soft with excellent wear and comes in 6 shades.
I’m always down to try a new brow pencil …. I really love trying new ones out, but I have so many pencils at the moment so I would have to wait to try this one out so my fantasy basket would include this pencil.
It’s billed as having maximum lash volume and fullness and instantly creates the look of dramatic, full-bodied lashes with intense, jet-black color. It claims that it has an ultra-creamy formula that builds volume as it conditions lashes for a thicker lash look with comfortable wear. The specially designed hourglass-shaped brush separates each lash and coats with the lush, full-pigment formula that glides on without weighing down lashes. It claims that 1 coat delivers the perfect amount of product that leaves you with voluptuously defined lashes that last all day, with 2 coats you get extra defining length and thickness, and with 3 coats you get full on extreme volume.
I only had a few products from ABH that I would want to try … this mascara being one of them so what better time to test out a high end mascara then when I have extra cash to use.
It’s billed as having classic nudes to playful rosy tones and seductive smoky hues with matte and metallic eye shadows their most insanely pigmented glitter finish yet and it’s limited-edition.
I keep putting this one in my basket and taking it out … It’s pretty but I have other palettes where I can pull these shades out of so I would only purchase it if there was extra cash.
It’s billed as being highly pigmented, velvety soft and can be used with a wet brush to create a super-metallic. They claim to be crease proof, buildable and blend-able.
Iconic London is just not something on my radar but this palette is so pretty I would definitely purchase this one.
It’s billed as having a weightless, matte-finish that helps makeup stay put and delivers a quick hit of hydration and sun protection anytime you need it.
I have wanted to try this setting spray out (particularly because I have wanted a way to refresh my sunscreen over my makeup and this seems like the best bet).
So my grand total for my fantasy basket comes to $995.50…. which is great since I went $1.00 over on my Sephora fantasy basket!!
Question 2: Is there anything you would buy in the end?
Yes. I would purchase the BEECA primer and liquid highlighter, and the Laura Mercier foundation and concealer.
Well that’s all for now dolls. What would be in your fantasy Ulta basket if you had $1000 to spend?
I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits and health.
Remember … Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
