The Worst Part About All This Is The Amount Of Time You Have for Online Shopping So Here’s A Peek at My Ulta Hot Buys Cart

I think probably the worst thing about this whole situation is we all have way too much time to browse and and shop online. Who’s struggling out there with this? I am! This week Ulta revealed new Hot Buys for the 21 Days of Beauty so I have a cart full of stuff I probably don’t need it but makeup you know?

Here’s what I’m shopping this week!

I know there’s a lot of controversy around Lime Crime but Wet Cherry Lip Gloss in Bitter Cherry is sooooo good! This formula is super glossy and the shade is a perfect nude MLBB (my lips but better) rose. These are on sale for $12 this week so I’m picking up a clear one as I use it often on top of my favorite lipsticks!

If you can believe it we are headed into Spring and Summer soon after even though right now I just feel like I’m living day to day rather than month to month. I’m at a point where I feel like New Yorker’s will be stuck inside for the next year. Let’s hope not. That’s why I decided I’d pick up a shade or two of my favorite sheer, tinted lipsticks from Lipstick Queen. These are $17.50 on sale this week and I’m running on low on Hello Sailor so that’s in my cart!

All, ALL Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks are $13. I have a good deal of shades but I keep googling swatches of nude ones I want and at this price why not right?

Urban Decay Heat Vice Lipsticks

Speaking of lipsticks (and lipglosses)! A lot of different Too Faced lipstick and lipglosses are on sale at the moment for $14 to $15 including the Juicy Fruits Comfort Lip Glaze which is a pretty pick for Spring and Summer looks!

By far the best lip oil that passed by my desk recently is Tarte Sugar Rush Lip Sip Vegan Lip Oil! I’m so happy these are on sale for $10 at the moment because I have dry lips and can use some more!

Ok, speaking of lip treatments from Tarte….! I also grabbed up the Awake Beauty Lip Therapy Lip Mask (on sale for $14) because hey, Sugar Rush is so good might as well see how Awake is (even though the skincare doesn’t capture my attention).

A few Peter Thomas Roth’s masks are on sale including my favorite, Pumpkin Enzyme Mask! Feel the burn baby! These are $38 to $42 for the large size and are typically $50-$60 each!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I am blessed to still work, a bless and scared too, for us essencial workers is that weir dichotomy, but I don’t agree either with that phrasing, a whooping 1.6 million people in Canada that lost their jobs and have applied for EI, I doubt they have time or are thinking of online shopping. I am sorry this are dire times and I read your blog as a distraction but saying the worst part is the time to online shop is just wrong.

    • Isabella Muse

      I didn’t mean to be insensitive Mary but I think you took what I said out of context. For a long time I didn’t blog because I couldn’t bring myself to do so because it felt weird talking about makeup. If you read my title I didn’t say the “worst part of this pandemic is” I said the worst part is “the amount of time”. I have a lot of free time and the worst part of using it is browsing online stores. Too much temptation! I realize many people are losing their jobs but also people dying and those losing their love ones that’s the very worst of it all πŸ™ Please be safe, healthy, and strong.

    I got the Awake lip mask in my March Ipsy bag and was pleasantly surprised. I like it a lot better than the Laneige one. It’s on par with the old formula of the Bite Beauty one.

    I need bitter cherry too!!
    I’m tempted by the PTR pumpkin mask but I have so many exfoliators already.
    I could just NOT buy groceries this week…

    • Isabella Muse

      It’s really a great shade and the formula is fab! Super glossy! πŸ™‚ lol!

  • Janie

    Is there still controversy when it comes to Lime Crime? The problematic founder has essentially been phased out of the company at this point…

    • Isabella Muse

      Not necessarily controversy but people still hold a grudge and won’t buy it.

      HavenÒ€ℒt researched it, but some say Doe Deere is on the board. I forgave them for past sins, and really like Venus Immortalis, the cool end to the Venus run. I think many were abused by DD, as well as the financial/data debacle. There are lasting reasons people will not patronize L C.

  • Randi Macdonald

    I actually have no desire to shop. My wife is a law enforcement and is out there all day, every day. I’m working a bit from home. We can afford whatever we want to buy, the desire is just gone. All I want to do is travel!!

    • Isabella Muse

      I sort of feeling like I want to shop but I also sort of feel like meh about makeup and shopping etc…! I’m sort of in a funk. I feel the same way about all things lately. Even watching tv seems a chore πŸ™ I guess it’s just a bit of anxiety and depression in all of us that makes us not want to do the things we love! I wish her well Randi and hope she’s safe out there!
