Fall 2015 Trends With Ulta Beauty

(Sponsored)

Calling all Chicagoans! Calling all Chicagoans! Did you know that we have a brand new Ulta on the Northside in Wicker Park? It’s nestled in a shopping plaza right off of Ashland. There’s a Dunkin Donuts in the same plaza. You can grab your pumpkin spiced whatever and stop in to check out what’s new and the hottest trends for Fall 2015.  The Wicker Park Ulta is located at 1300 N. Ashland Frnt J.

I was treated to a demonstration of some of Ulta’s Hottest Fall 2015 trends by the Wicker Park Ulta Prestige Manager Marshal Click.  On his model he demonstrated the Suede Eye, Cashmere Skin and Velvet lips using some of his favorite items from Smashbox, Too Faced, Lipstick Queen, Urban Decay and Stila.

Products used to recreate Ulta’s Fall 2015 Makeup Trends Upper Row L to R: Stila Convertible Color Cheek +LIp in Lillium, Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water, Smashbox Camera Ready BB Water, Stila Palette in Spirit and Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara. Bottom Ro L to R: Lipstick Queen Cupid’s Bow in Apollo, Urban Decay 24/7 Lipliner in Blackmail and Urban Decay Primer Potion.

To create the Suede Eye Marshal started by prepping the eye with Urban Decay’s Primer Potion. The Suede Eye look was created using the Stila’s Eyes Are the Windows Palette – Spirit. He started of by Using the shade Puppy all over the lid. To create the sueding effect on the lid he used Go Lightly. For the brow highlight he used Wheat (a FAVE of mine from Stila). To spice up the look he went in with Pigalle (a burgundy shade) on the lid and crease to create what I like to call a spicy smoky.

The recreate the Cashmere Skin look he used Smashbox Camera Ready BB Water to even out his model’s complexion. To add some dimension he lightly contoured her face using Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer. The blush he used was Stila’s Convertible Color Cheek + Lip in Lillium, a pretty shade of nude pink that also can double as your lip color.

The dark wine Vekvet Lip look is hands down my favorite of the season. Marshal created this look using the Urban Decay 24/7 Lip Liner in Blackmail to line her lips and to slightly fill them in. He then placed Lipstick Queen Cupid’s Bow in Apollo on the center of her lip and blending the colors together creating a beautiful multidimensional velvet lip.

It always makes me happy to meet others who are as passionate about makeup as I am. Marshal and his staff are all very knowledgable and eager to assist their customers with all their beauty needs. They have converted this longtime South Side gal to make the quick trek up north for all her Ulta Beauty needs!

Stila Set & Illuminate Baked Powder Trio The Correctors

edbbash stila the correctors

Stila Set & Illuminate Baked Powder Trio The Correctors contains and retails for $34.00. This was part of their new Set & Illuminate line of baked trios for Summer 2012. There were three compacts included in this release: Corrector, Bronzer and Illuminator. All three products are still available at Stila counters and online. I’ve tried all three but today I am reviewing The Correctors.

I have to say that I am head over heels in love with Stila Set & Illuminate Baked Powder Trio The Correctors! The concept behind this compact is really cool (OMG a gimmicky beauty product that works!). The baked palette contains lavender, green and peach shades that you shave by turning the plastic dial and then combine when you pick up the powder with your brush. This makes carrying around the product a breeze because you don’t have to worry about a messy powder. The trio blends well together to set my make up and provide some minor color correcting. I’ve worn this on top of my foundation for flawless all day wear and I’ve also set it on top of my BB/CC creams for a very pretty, naturally gorgeous look. For a baked powder it’s very silky smooth. It blends into your skin effortlessly, looking natural and never ashy. The Correctors trio hides pores like NOTHING else I’ve tried before. My pores just disappear! The Stila Set & Illuminate Baked Powder Trio The Correctors is a matte formula so no tacky shimmah shimmah here chic as making this perfect for those with aging skin.

For those of you not familiar with color theory and how it works with cosmetics here’s a breakdown of what each color in the compact does:

  • Peach – brightens and illuminates
  • Green – minimizes redness
  • Lavender – counteracts sallow undertones

Nothing is perfect and I do have some gripes about this product. The size and weight of the compact can make it a bit of a pain to carry around in a smaller purse. It doesn’t come with it’s own powder puff either so be prepared to carry around a brush/puff with you. I’m not too crazy about the price either as I tend to go through this fairly quickly with daily use and I replace this about ever 2-3 months.

I’ve been using the Stila Set & Illuminate Baked Powder Trio The Correctors for over two years now and when all is said and done highly recommend the Stila Set & Illuminate Baked Powder Trio in The Correctors (aka Set & Correct) to anyone looking for a universal setting powder with color correcting properties. This product will provide some color correcting issues, hide pores and set your make up for perfect finish. What’s really not to love?
