Some of these things were on sale. I somehow lost a blush I loved so I got a replacement, I got two matte shadows (bad reputation, hopefully I can make them work), two brushes- which are shedding very badly already....I hope they don't keep doing so since they are not cheap brushes!- and some foundation; I did start using that today. Then they had an awesome looking box that had two polishes, a cream (mega sparkly) shadow, an eyeliner and a set of lashes I'll never use but for a real bargain price, I really could not pass on it.
I tried to do these swatches but my left hand had surgery so never sits right, and I'm out of good light as well- it's something at least haha! And I actually didnt have any issues with the eyeshadow, it's matte but not chalky and had excellent payoff, I really like it....I do think the Étude House primer makes a huge difference though!
