Tom Ford Fragrances and Perfume Sold at Ulta Is The Makeup Line Next?

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

Tom Ford perfume and fine fragrances are now sold at Ulta.com and I do want to know if they Tom Ford Beauty and makeup line is next? I also want to know if I can use any 20% off coupons on the fragrances because that would make me a very happy perfume loving girl.

As we all know Ulta has expanded their brand catalog with many, many prestigious brands over the course the two years bringing in bigger brands like MAC, NARS, and also, catering to smaller brands as well as Korean brands. They have gathered such a selection of brands and improved upon their reward program so much they are now in direct competition with Sephora and other higher-end retail counters.

Estee Lauder brands have been launching a plenty at Ulta with many more to follow I’m sure. I mean, really, did you think you’d ever see Tom Ford Fragrances at Ulta of all places? Bottles are $180 or more so, it seems a little weird and out of place to see such a prestigious, luxury fragrance line offered at Ulta. I do wonder if they’ll extend into Tom Ford’s makeup line as well! That would be very, very interesting to see. If they can carry NARS why not Tom Ford Beauty?

Estee Lauder stock has had a consecutive high for nearly a year now at around $185 dollars with a growth of 10%. Just like L’Oreal Group and Estee Lauder pretty much own almost all the beauty brands out there and are still collecting many others. L’Oreal spent 1.2 Billion dollars to purchase It Cosmetics in 2016 and Estee Lauder topped that offer when they purchased Too Faced for 1.45 billion in the same year!

Beauty is obviously big business! It’s interesting to see how Ulta continues to grow! So much so at some point they may just knock Sephora completely off the radar.

For those so inclined you can now purchase your Tom Ford Fragrances at Ulta.com and hopefully in stores too as who doesn’t want to sniff some heavenly Tom Ford perfumes!

2 stars out of 5

Maybelline Plumper, Please! Lipstick

Maybelline Plumper, Please! Lipstick ($9.99) is a new shaping lip duo that consists of a matte lipstick and matching lipgloss shade housed in a tapered pencil for easy application and travel. I happen to always apply lipgloss on top of my favorite lipstick because I like a glossier lip look. This is one reason I love products like this. I happen to be a really big fan of Tarte’s The Lip Sculptor Lipstick & Lipgloss which is what drew me towards trying out Plumper, Please! Lipstick. I just love the idea of having a matching lipstick and lipgloss in one spot plus I like the way the two products look together. It’s also nice to keep the two products together and isolated as when you have two different products you’re using it often means when you combine the lipstick and gloss you might forget which shades you used to create the look. Also, I hate having my mucking up my favorite lipgloss by applying it on top of my lipstick. Even after you wipe off the sponge tip sometimes the lipstick shade contaminates the lipgloss. You know what I mean?

So, little duos like this are awesome as they are all matchy match and are meant to be used together without messing anything up plus they are swell for travel to have a lipstick and a lipgloss in one easy to carry pencil!

E.L.F. Jelly Pop Juicy Gloss Review & Swatches

4 stars out of 5

E.L.F. Cosmetics Jelly Pop Juicy Gloss ($5) are a new, glossy jelly lipgloss that launched with the new E.L.F. Jelly Pop Summer 2019 Collection in four translucent shades. I purchased these instantly because they remind me of the old Majolica Majorca Honey Plump Gloss Neo and Too Faced Mirror Mirror Lipgloss which I miss so hard and so much. Ugh I mourn the loss of that lipgloss daily.

You see, I really like icky, gooey, shiny, thick lipglosses like this. Ones that don’t really provide a ton of color but do give lips that super juicy, glossy look! I was hopefuly Colourpop So Juicy Plumping Gloss would swoop in and save me from the melancholy I still feel for the loss of Mirror Mirror Lipgloss but sadly, I found them a bit too thick and sticky.

So, all my hopes are pinned on E.L.F. Jelly Pop Juicy Gloss!

Maybelline Super Stay Full Coverage Under-Eye Concealer Review & Swatches

I purchased this item and I receive a small commission if you shop using the links in this post.
3 stars out of 5

Maybelline Super Stay Full Coverage Under-Eye Concealer ($11.99) is a new concealer that launched in 12 shade selections with a formula that promises to “instantly” wipe out dark circles courtesy the full-coverage formula.

I was pretty excited to try this formula because I’m a concealer junkie as you know but also, because they were promising full-coverage with a long wear! Yes, please. I don’t need a ton of foundation on my face as my skin is fairly smooth and blemish-free. But concealer? I need tons of it. I’m prone to puffy, baggy eyes and as I get older it seems like it gets worst not to mention lately I feel like my eyes look a bit sunken in. I rely on concealer to conceal these issues and brighten up the area so I appear more rested. I’ve been using Tarte Shape Tape since it launched and it is my go to however, I feel like the formula changed so, between that feeling and the fact I never have problems cheating on my HG products I decided to try out Maybelline Super Stay Full Coverage Under-Eye Concealer.

And I have mixed feelings.
