My New Babies! -- Real Techniques Special Edition Sculpting Set

How pretty are my new Real Technique brushes!!! I am so in love, guys! These are my first Real Techniques anything, and I know they won't be the last...(on my list - Expert Face Brush, their beauty sponge, the concealer brush, etc.). They are synthetic but, super soft, dense, and fluffy! 

 The set comes with the three brushes, pictured above from top to bottom:
  •  Setting Brush
  •  Sculpting Brush
  •  Fan Brush

The whole set is great value (retails for $19.99) because when you buy the brushes separately the Sculpting Brush retails for $9.99, and the Setting Brush $7.99. Additionally, the Fan Brush isn't available separately. I got the whole set shipped to me from Ulta.com for $19.xx. I used the $3.50 of $10 coupon, so I pretty much got free shipping, plus the free skincare samples. I know I could have gotten a better deal if I had purchased them in-store, but when I went to the Ulta, at the Irvine District, they did not have it in stock. Plus, by ordering online, I got the skincare sample set that had a Hado Labo serum, and a makeup product, Benefit Porefessional (which I have also wanted to try)! We love samples!


I can not wait to use them, but I am...because a beautiful sculpting tool needs a beautiful sculpting product...right?
Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder in Medium

My most recent obsession is Kevyn Aucoin's Sculpting Powder. Ever since I became aware of the stark difference between contouring and bronzing, I can not imagine contouring with any other product.

Bronzer v. Contour Placement   .
There really is no other contouring product comparable to the Kevyn Aucoin. I've seen all the swatches and no other contouring cream or powder offers a dupe of KA's beautiful matte brown that boasts absolutely no hint of orange.  

I can not stop thinking about this contour shade that really mimics  a shadow. Even when I lie in the dark next to my boys when I put them to sleep, that little .11 oz compact is all I can think about. You know what they say, "if you can't stop thinking about it, Buy IT". So I did.... >.<  

The next two days are going to be hell....oh Amazon prime...you are a double-edged sword -- faster than 5 days, but slower than...NOW.





What's in your desires of desires?
