Green Beauty Ulta Haul | Honest Beauty, Honeybee Gardens


Green Beauty Ulta Haul


Honest Beauty finally launched online on the Ulta Website this past week, so I decided to stack some coupons with a gift card and purchase a few green beauty products that are available at Ulta! 


Honest Beauty launches in-store at Ulta on February 28th! 


Let's get in to the haul!




First up are a couple of the Honeybee Gardens Pressed Minerals Eyeshadows.


These pressed powder eyeshadows come in a pan form, so it's easy to store in a z-palette or a MAC palette. Each eyeshadow retails for $8.99 (0.045 oz) and is available on the Ulta Website and the Honeybee Gardens Website.


There are 14 shades available, mostly neutral colors, with a bright colors also available.


I picked up two shades; Canterbury, and Daredevil. Canterbury is matte light dusty mauve taupe. Similar to MAC's Quarry, but lighter. Daredevil is a satin deep burgundy (See Swatches Below).


Full reviews will be up this Friday.

Next up is the Honest Beauty Brow Filler


These brow pencils are retractable, which is rare in the green beauty community. Each pencil retails for $15 (0.01 oz) and is available at Ulta, and the Honest Beauty Website.  


There are 4 shades available, definitely not the greatest shade range. I purchased the shade, Rich Brunette, the second darkest shade. It's darker than Urban Decay's Warm Brown, similar to MAC's Spiked, but slightly lighter and warmer (See Swatches Below).


I hope they add a taupe shade to the range to suite more skin tones and hair colors.


A full review will be up next Monday.

I am so excited Ulta is finally carrying more mainstream green beauty brands like Honest Beauty. I hope this is a new trend and more brands will soon to follow!
