As you probably will not remember, my awesome mom gifted me Laura Geller’s Baked Collection for Christmas.  And I fell completely in love with the foundation.  I mean the rest is all pretty sweet-tastic as well, but the foundation is KILLER.

It’s been a bit over three months and my sample-sized foundation started running out, so I headed over to Ulta to buy a replacement.  I did some internet research and discovered that the full-sized foundation was $33, which is honestly not so bad when the sample size lasted for 3 months and the foundation is literally the best ever.  I also noticed that there was a coffee-flavored kit for sale at Ulta, but I remained focused:  no marketing tricks for this girl.  I just needed the foundation, not some random samples of things I never wanted in the first place.  I’ve been around the block a time or two.  I know how these things work.

But they were out of my color.  And so, since I was there anyway, I walked over to check this fancy-schmancy kit out.  For only $6 more, you could get foundation, blush, highlighter, highlighter shading brush, eye shadow palette, and lip gloss.  And so I decided to give it a try.  It was super cute, and the packaging totally fooled H, who asked:  Are you seriously buying coffee from this ridiculous makeup store?  Why do they even sell coffee here?

002So I bought it, fully anticipating a mini-sized foundation that would last for another three months.  BUT WAIT:  It was actually a full-sized foundation.  AND a full-sized blush.  And a full-sized everything.  Check it out:

But seriously, it’s like the gift that keeps on giving and I am stoked about this amazing deal!  Adorable packaging, great deals, and products that I can and will actually use.  So stoked, in fact,  that H started making fun of me and saying that this was just like getting three fishing lures in a package that looked like pork rinds — only that is not actually a thing.  This is.

    Actually, you can buy pork rinds as bait, and to find that they also included 3 fully rigged lures for you to attach your pork rind to would be an awesome deal!
