Ulta Haul Swatches

Here are the swatches from my Ulta haul.
I've been on the search for a new eyebrow color. There have been a few girls on YouTube that have been talking about it, and using it. So I thought I would give it a try.

This is also to go with my brows. I really like Anastasia Brow powders. They are the perfect texture, no shimmer, they are completely matte. This set has a higlight trio, to use under your brow, or as eyeshadows.

Benefit Celebutante seems like its going to be a great sample set. I'm always up for trying value kits. I think you get more for you money.

Benefit Powderazzi. I'm really liking this set. Once again you are getting 3 powders to test out for the price of one. You can't beat that.

Brushes.. Brushes And More Brushes!

These are all of my brushes. I have WAY TOO MANY!! It's really pathetic how many I have. But you see I like one set of brushes and love them, and then I find something better. Well i've done that many times! I found better ones. I have stopped buying brushes. I have the best that are out there right now. And yes.. I do use all of them.. It's pretty sad when I say to myself "crap.. I don't have a brush to use, (they are all dirty)." So then one night I set aside like 1 hour! to clean all of my brushes. Cleaning them is a pain in the butt! But it must be done.. GIRLS Please wash your brushes!!! It's really gross if you don't.

So like I said before. My brush holder is from Target, the little beads are from Jo Anns and Michales Craft Store. This basket is huge, but I needed a pretty large one, so I used about 5 bags.
