Product Review: Get Gorgeous 60pc Blockbuster Cosmetic Kit & FOTDs

Hi Y'all! I was in Ulta the other day looking for a hot curler set, and I saw the Get Gorgeous Blockbuster Kit on sale for $19.99.  It's regularly $24.99. So I bought it! Don't laugh at me.  I just moved and I'm broke so the $5 discount made the deal for me. I didn't have an Ulta near me in CT so the store is 'new' to me.  I also haven't really tried much of the Ulta branded makeup so I figured why not. I own 1 Ulta quad and I like it, so I figured why not. For $20 I got: 32 eyeshadows, 12 lip colors, 6 cheek colors, 4 full size lipsticks, 2 mini lipglosses, 2 pot glosses, 2 shimmer powders, 2 eye shadow quads, 2 concealers, 2 dual ended liners, 2 brushes, train case with mirror and applicators. Not a bad deal....


    • I love the fact that it comes with 2 eyeshadow quads & 4 full size lippies & the 2 glosses b/c you can take them out and keep them in your purse for touch ups.
    • I don't like the 'covers' over the eyeshadows and blushes....  It's like thin plasic casing which I see getting broken and I want to keep them covered from dust, germs, etc...
    Here are some close up pics of the different compartments.  If anyone wants to see swatches let me know.








    Ignore my shoes & fingerprints.....
    Bottom Line...
    I give it 5/5 ♥ ♥♥♥♥♥
    Overall I it's totally worth the price. Even if the powder products don't compliment your skintone or aren't to your liking. The traincase is cute and sturdy since everything comes out you can use it for traveling. The shadows are pretty pigmented.  I was pleasantly surprised.
    The color combos can keep you occupied forever! If your a beauty blogger it will keep you busy for about a week :)
    Since I haven't had much exposure to Ulta or their own line of products it was a great way to test them.  Sephora also has their own version which is $48 which it's a little out of my budget at the moment so I'm glad I found Ulta's version for less.  Hopefully I'll find a job down here soon and I'll have real money again.
    Here's a neutral FOTD that I did using the kit.  I had to look cute to go Starbucks :) Sorry, I didn't keep track of the names.
    Kisses...
    Confused face.... 
    Wind fail.........



     


    Luv Y'all!
       Mean It!


    P.S. Sorry if this review sucked... Blogger was testing my patience and I had to re-write it like 3 times :(
