I'll admit I wasn't super interested in trying anything from Ulta3. This is because I can be a snob and I think things like "My precious eyelids are way too sensitive for something that costs less than a bag of hot chips. Begone, cheap and nasty, bring on the more suitable Giorgio Armani." Only the best for delicate flower Michaela.

So of course I somehow ended up with an Ulta3 single eyeshadow from my local pharmacy (went in to buy Sudafed, left with bag of cosmetics and three types of gum). Of course it's an awesome shade which I've used regularly since, but have neglected to review it until now as its effectiveness is somehow an affront to my sensibilities. I know that makes zero sense, shut up!
It's a shimmery grey/brown with a purple tinge, and is a lot more pigmented than I expected. The powder isn't quite silky, but is still very smooth and blends easily, even just using a finger.

So shall we recap my Ulta3 journey through Toddlers and Tiaras gifs?
Yes, I think we shall. This may be more for me than it is for you.
|First I was all like "blerugggh" about trying a cheapo product|
|Then it was awesome and I got excited.|
|And then you were all like "omg ENOUGH with the gifs, fool".|
|And I started looking into octopus employment options|
