  1. Omg I love RT so much. I don't need these at all but they're already added into my cart... Someone stop me!! lol

  2. Will the RT Diamond shaped sponge will be release before the Holidays?

    1. It's already available on the ulta site I think.

  3. $3.33 on the big set if you use the 20% off! AHHHHH I just ordered some Elf brushes on the 50% off sale!

  4. I want the RT Mega Set and/or the Your Picks Set.

  5. I don't need that big set but with the 2x points its already in my cart. That set will definitely sell out. Thank G!

  6. The 3 season exclusives are not actually that exclusive. All 3 of them were part of Nic's Pick's from last year.

  7. I have so many brushes....but...I want Best Sellers Collection!

  8. I have never tried an eco tools face brush but I would like to. I did try the makeup brush wipes and they worked well for cleaning powder brushes but not so much for concealer and foundation brushes. I think baby wipes would work just as well tho
