Ulta Makeup Haul!

Hi ya'll! I've been crazy stressed about taking my GRE's next week and studying non-stop for weeks now. So to relax, I decided to use my $3.50 off $10 Ulta coupon and do a drugstore products haul. Here's what I got:
*Essie Polish in 636 Blushing Bride, Maybelline One by One Volum'Express Mascara in Very Black, EOS Lip Balm in Summer Fruit, L'Oreal HIP Eyeshadow Duo in 510 Electrified, Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie*

I still have a lot of products to use so I will do swatches of these when I get to opening them. I made a pact with myself not to use all my products half way and actually try to finish most of them if I like them  >.< so please be patient!! But I did do a nails-of-the-day :) 
This is Zoya Nail Polish in Penny. Its a slightly metallic orange, copper color. There's no glitter particles in it but it shines very well with a golden sheen. I love how this polish goes on! I only did 2 coats, but the first coat was very pigmented already. I did a 2nd coat just to cover up some sides. The consistency is not too liquid or too thick. It seems just right. The drying time is a bit longer than what I'm use to with Sally Hansen products but the result is worth it :) And I also did my makeup to match the bronze color of my nails.
For my eyes, I used Bare Minerals READY Eyeshadow 2.0 in Top Shelf. I absolutely love this eyeshadow pair. The highlight color is called Mixologist and it is a sheer shimmery color that is perfect for under the brow bone. The other golden color is Cognac. Its a copper glittery soft shadow. They both go on really smooth and very pigmented. The ingredients in this shadow is made from sea minerals and supposedly has anti-wrinkle benefits. I just love how easy the color goes on and stays on. I mixed the Cognac color with their loose eyeshadow in Sex Kitten, which is a shimmery brown shadow. This made the golden Cognac a bit darker and when blended in, it looks slightly more smokey.

This is my first makeup review so sorry if it's not too in depth!! 

Till next time!
