Ulta Portfolio Case Make Up Kit (Quick Review)

Ok so here it is. I paid $20 ( I had a $5 off coupon) and for the most  part it was worth it. I love all the colors. The brushes and applicators are pretty useless but I don't care, I have enough of those. The black eyeliner is the best one. The other colors don't have a lot of pigment but they're still useful. The lipgloss and lipstick are all great, I love the colors and the texture and they don't have any fragrance so that's good for me! The lip gloss's in the pans are nice too. Good color as well. I expected them to be pretty sheer but they're not. The blush is nice too, good color payout. It is more powdery than creamy. The eyeshadows in the quads (on the left) are great, nice pigmentation and they're shimmer, which I love. The other shadows are good too. Maybe comparable to like a Wet N Wild, but for some reason I prefer the ones in the quads. I've been having issues with creasing and I don't know if the shadows on the right or if it's the combination of primer/shadow. All I know is that I never had a problem with my primer before.

All in all I probably wouldn't buy this again. I love it now, and I will get lots of use out of it, but I could have gotten something better for my $20.

**Note: I bought this myself with my own money. I was not compensated in any way.***
