Ulta kit - another lpug project.

When I was at Ulta they had a bunch of these holiday kits marked down to $12.99. Well, of course I couldn't pass that up. I mean, $12.99? :) I really didn't like the case it was in, it's big and bulky and takes up a bunch of unnecessary space. So I decided I would pop those things right out of that cheap plastic and put them into CD cases. Most of them popped out without difficulty, one of the blushes cracked and one of the eyeshadows kind of crumbled, but I pushed them back into their pans. All but three of the pans had sticky stuff still on the bottom so I only had to glue three of them into the CD cases. Then I made labels for them. Much more convenient than that bulky case. I can put all four CD cases into the top of that case. I am gonna use that red case to store other stuff in now. All these colors can be bought individually at Ulta so if I fall in love with shade I can buy it in full size! woohoo :) The blushes, the liners and the lip glosses are good, the only thing negative about this kit is the scratchy blush brush (and the big bulky case). But who cares for $12.99!?!

Oh and yes, the liners fit right into the side of the cases like they were meant to be there.



I wore a look from the kit today.
Inner half of lid - Moonbeam
Outer half of lid - Bayou
Crease - Nightsky
Brow Bone - Platinum
Eye liner is also from the kit - black.
Mascara - e.l.f. studio line lengthening and volumizing mascara

Usually, though, a bike's brand name is notcarbon road wheelas important as the makers of its individual parts.
After all, a large percentage of bike frames are made in Japan or China and sold to U.S. companies who simply put their name on them.
And as large American companies consolidate the industry by buying out smaller bike manufacturers,
brand names are becomingtubular wheelseven more confusing ysbike01 and irrelevant.
Keep in mind, as well, that large manufacturers produce bikes in a wide variety of quality levels,
from mass market toys to highly crafted top-of-the-line machines.
The only time brand nameswheels for mountain bikescount in determining quality is when you're dealing with high-end specialty companies that make custom carbon frames and parts for their bikes.
Look into which manufacturers offer the best warranties;
many companies still guarantee their lower-and midrange aluminum frames for life
(though this has become less common carbon wheelsas off-road biking's popularity has made life harder on frames).
Some bikes have a limited five-year warranty, and other warranties become void if the bike is used for racing.
While you should always remain open to a better brand or a better-suited style of bike,
try to narrow your choices before you begin to shop seriously for a new bike.
