There was nothing I really needed from ULTA but I figured why not experiment a little bit with contouring and highlighting before summer starts. A natural summer makeup look is flat without proper highlight and contour, don't you think? I've wanted to try Real Techniques brushes for the longest time so I figured I'd slowly ease my way into the Real Techniques bandwagon with two brushes I can use for contouring and highlighting. I have been using Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel and Benefit Hoola Bronzer for contouring and as for highlighting, I use Benefit High Beam and a light powder from a palette I got from IMATS two years ago. I feel like it's time to try something new and I decided on picking up Maybelline New York's Fit Me line. I've read and heard rave reviews on both the brushes and makeup line so I think I am off to a good start. I'm crossing my fingers that these work for me, I always welcome cheaper alternatives. I will be updating you guys in a month or two. 


  1. OMG, it seems like it's been ages since I went makeup shopping. I do agree, cheaper alternatives are not bad at all. I'm slowly easing my way into replacing my makeup products to being all-natural and animal friendly. So far, I'm obsessing over Tarte. It's not cheap, but it really works for me!

    1. Sounds like a good beauty/cosmetic plan, B. Tarte is a fun brand, I like their packaging too. :)

  2. I have been wanting to visit Ulta for the longest time! They just opened a branch near where i live. I must pay them a visit soon because i want to try those brushes!


  3. there are cheaper alternatives that are pretty good plus if I don't like them I could just toss them without too much guilt :P

  4. I've been eyeing the Real Techniques brushes for the longest. I've seen so many great reviews on them. I think I might pick a couple up today, because I've been wanting them for way too long!! ;) Thanks for sharing your haul with us!!

    xo, Sarah
    Hustla, baby.

    1. You're welcome and thanks for stopping by! :)

  5. I love the RT Expert Face Brush, it's amazing! :)


  6. It has been awhile since I blogged or read them! Missed all your posts and loving your little haul! I have heard so much about the real techniques brushes, and I really want to try them. :D We don't get any Maybelline Fit me line and I am kinda thankful because then I might be tempted to try the :P
