Ulta Haul: Gel Liners, Eye Pencils & Lip Glosses

Dying to find out how good Ulta makeup is, I placed an order at ulta.com.

ulta haul

-Ultra Extreme Wear Whipped Eyeshadows in Berry Trifle and Chocolate Mousse.
-Ulta Gel Eyeliner Pencil in Mink
-Ulta Automatic Eyeliners in Black/Brown and Indigo
-Essence XXXL Shine Lipgloss in True Love
-Essence Stay with Me Long Lasting Lipgloss in Kiss Kiss Kiss
-Essence Gel Liner in Midnight in Paris

My thoughts:

  • The Ulta liners are glide on easily, give me nice, rich color and good pigmentation in one stroke. The downside: they don’t last very long. 😦
  • The Whipped Eyeshadows seem to mimic the MAC Big Bounce eyeshadows in texture. They apply pretty, but dry down a little stiff. If you have sensitive eyelids, you might want to skip these. I wasn’t bothered too much by the dry texture, but I have experienced better results with other cream shadows. Chocolate Mousse is GORGEOUS. This could be used as a base for brown smokey eyes.
  • The Essence lip glosses are very nice. The colors are sheer red on me, so I would wear these over a lipstick. If you like tinted gloss, give these a try. The applicator is a little unusual. It looks like a mini cotton swab.
  • I think I am in love with the Essence Gel Liner. I heard a lot of raves about it, so I decided to see for myself if it was awesome. It’s double awesome! I really think I might repurchase this. If you know me, you would know I never buy the same gel liner twice, because I am always trying out new gel liners.
