I actually played with ColourPop's Cloudy Pressed Glitter patted on top of It's Faux Lux Lipstick, and I loved how it looked (though the texture of it all took some getting used to).
The last time I used brighter/bolder colors and loved the combo, it was actually using the Norvina Mini Vol. 2 palette--pink/red, green, and teal with pops of yellow.
Product availability, faster shipping (for lower cost, I don't mind an upcharge for 2-day shipping, but I don't want to spend $20), and decent customer service. I don't want to have to ship anything back before they'll send out a new one (this assumes I'm an established customer, so they should see my order history and know I don't make a habit of it!).
It's definitely Ulta by far. I placed an order the other day, which had 5X points... plus an extra point as a credit card holder... and it was nearly the equivalent of 40% off my order. They make it hard for me to spend points because so often there is some event going on, LOL!
Yes, I do! I try to share it as a look on Temptalia shortly after doing it so I don't have to write down what I used and where I used it, but for some smaller palettes, it's easy enough to remember (since I used only shades from it). Otherwise, I'll write it down on a notepad and have it on my desk 'til I do add it properly!
