I mentioned earlier this week, in my virtual coffee date, that we're almost finished with our Christmas shopping for friends and family (eek!), and this makes me over the moon giddy.  I have love love loved picking out each gift for our loved ones, and am excited to get started on shopping for T. 

BUT, in the mean time I have also been doing some major damage while adding to my beauty collection.  Calling it collection would probably be a stretch, well up utnil the beginning of October, anyways.  Then my youtube obsession began and thus my ever growing collection of makeup.


So, today I'm sharing what all I've been buying lately thanks to recommendations of my fave youtubers. And while I splurged on a couple items I'm really more of a cheap-but-still-good-quality kinda girl.

 It should be noted I'm no makeup guru myself, but I am slowly learning and will let you know what I thought of each product for the price tag.  

Also, another shipment should arrive today, so while I can't give my review I wanted to include them anyways.

He said we're going for our shopping trip end of the mth! After i'm done with the big items over next two weeks! Woohoo! Thanks for spoiling me, hon!:

review: I've had the real techniques sponge for a while and love it, and these mini ones are fantastic for under the eyes, concealer and around the nose.  100% worth the buy.

review: I use it to brush away the setting powder under my eyes.  And I can't get over the $3 price tag.  

review: $3???  And yes, yes, yes.

review: love and only $4

review: I don't have acne but the youtuber mentioned she just used it when she noticed a blemish or break out starting up and it worked like a charm, so we'll see.

I bought all of these items through Ulta online (except the Revlon foundation I picked up last night at Target).  I personally like buying from Ulta because it earns me points.  Those points truly suck me in.  I currently have enough points to get $17.50 off an order.  

One other reason I love using Ulta is that I can always return the products after trying them if I don't like them.  Of course you can't actually use the product then try to return it, but if it's the wrong color or I am just totally turned off I can return it.  Can you do that at other stores?  I don't even know.  Let me know below.

I'm thinking of using them towards the tartelette palette "in bloom".  Any suggestions what other products I should use my points on?
