What I won!

A few Wednesday's ago I found out that I not only won an awesome giveaway from Jasmine from My Cup of Tequila, but I also won Ulta3's Valentines day competition!
My prize from Jasmine arrived on that Friday, so quick! Her giveaway prize was a few products she picked up when she was in Asia recently. I won 2 new colour Baby Lips in coral flush and pink lolita, a paprika hand cream and a BB cream.
Of course I've already lost one of the Baby Lips because I always manage to lose my lip balms. I'm sure it's in the house somewhere - or at the boyfriends house. A lot of other people have reviewed these already, so I wont bother. I will say I really like them, even though they're super sheer they do leave a lovely colour on my lips. The Paprika moisture hand cream is a lovely hand cream and sinks into the skin super quick. I haven't used the BB cream much, but I can tell you already that it's infinitely better than the Nude by Nature BB cream I own.

Here's what I won from Ulta3. It took a little longer to get here and I only received these yesterday. I'm so psyched to win these, especially considering I haven't really bought much nail polish recently and Ulta3 is one of my favourite brands of polish! I won 2 nail polish sets, 2 lip liners and 2 lipsticks.

The nail polish sets I won are Be Mine and Heart Me. None of these nail polishes are labeled, which is a little annoying. The brushes on these are also fantastic! They're bigger than both the Essie and OPI mini polish brushes. Be mine contains a lovely sparkly blue and pink, a baby pink, a pastel green (my favourite of them all!) and a shiny white (very similar to Maybelline's Marshmallow mini nail polish).

This contains the same white polish as above, a black, a sparkly red (which I think is actually Brandy Wine), a deep red and a bight red.

These are the first products I've tried from Ulta3 that aren't nail polishes. The lipsticks are quite sheer, but I haven't actually put them on my lips yet. The liners are very pigmented though and I'm excited to be able to use a nude liner! The liners also match the lipstick shades lovely - as shown in the swatches.
