I am so excited about today’s post. I know I say that a lot. I truly do love discussing beauty and makeup products. Today I decided to take a deeper look into Ulta’s own brand products. The Ulta Collection line is very large and there are a variety of products to choose from. I have used some beauty products from the line before and overall those products were very good and similar to more expensive products. While walking around an Ulta store and scrolling on their website, I found some products I would not normally buy but would like to buy and try out. Keep reading to see which products from the Ulta Beauty Collection I would try!
Ulta Dual Action Cleansing Brush– Let’s start off by saying that spin brushes are expensive! I have only seen affordable and good quality spin brushes at Tj Maxx & Target. To my surprise, Ulta has their own spin brush. I think it is very unique that Ulta added this product to their collection, many brands do not have their own spin brush in their line. The cleansing brush claims to “remove dulling surface debris to improve skin texture and prepare for moisture absorption.” As a spin brush, these claims seem to be really good and beneficial to the skin. Although I am not in the need for a spin brush, I would still give this product a try.
Ulta Luxe Smooth Exfoliating Body Scrub– I love body scrubs. I wish I used them on a daily basis. I normally use a scrub here and there especially if I am doing my pampering routine. What attracted me to the Ulta Body Scrub was the ingredients the product contains such as shea butter, aloe, green tea, and vitamins A,C,D,E. Having all these ingredients in one product would seem very beneficial. I would try this out to see if there is a noticeable difference with my skin. The reviews for this product is 4.5 stars out of 5 which is overall good for a product.
Ulta Makeup Removing Towel Set– I have seen products like this before but never knew if they actually worked. This product has 4.5 stars out of 5. Just by the reviews alone, many say this is a life changing product. I normally wash my face off with a wash cloth and use micellar water to remove any excess makeup, oil, or dirt. This towel would eliminate the two-step routine I use and do everything all in one. This product is also great because to wash all you do is throw it in the washing machine. Overall this is a very convenient product to have.
Ulta Cheeky Dual-Ended Blush, Bronzer, & Highlight Sticks– I recently saw this product in store and swatched it. The swatch was so beautiful! I am very surprised that this product only has a couple of reviews. I feel as though this could be one of Ulta’s best products. I like the concept of the stick in which it is essential one product that has many different uses to it. I do not wear blush, therefore, I would be using the stick for bronzer and highlight. This multi-use stick is very big and I could definitely see this product lasting a while.
Ulta Matte Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette– The colors in this palette are so beautiful. I could see myself using every shade. Normally when I see an eyeshadow palette, there are a couple of shades I will not touch. I think I am drawn to this palette because I tend to wear neutral colors on my eyes and this palette has all neutral colors. One thing to notice about this palette is that there is only matte shadows, no glitters are present. It might be hard to create multiple looks with the palette. However, I would give it a try and see what looks I am able to create. Another con about the palette is the price, ($20). I have never tried an eyeshadow palette from Ulta. I am unfamiliar with the quality of the shadows, therefore, I’ m not sure if I would spend $20.
Ulta Lasting Color Lip Gloss Stain in Treason – While scrolling on the website, this was the first lip product from the Ulta line that interested me. Some of the other lip products did not have colors that were appealing or some of the lip products I felt did not seem any different than any other lip product from another brand. I was attracted to this color because of how neutral the red is, it’s not too bright nor too dark. I could easily see myself dressing up this red or even wearing it casually. Only thing I would be worried about with this lip product is that it is a lip stain. Lip stains are good because the color will not come off if you eat or drink, however, when it’s time to take the product off, it can be a pain. I would definitely still try this out.
Ulta Twisted Volume Mascara– Ulta has a variety of mascaras. Just through scrolling on the site, I counted 8+ different mascaras. I decided that I would try out the Twisted Volume Mascara. Volume is definitely something that I have to have in my mascara. I like for my lashes to look natural but also have volume to them so you can tell I have on mascara. This mascara also stuck out to me because it has different options to chose from such as lashes are long and defined, lashes are luscious, or lashes are dramatic.
Ulta Charcoal Mask– I am not one to compare brands and their products. However, this mask instantly remind me of the Sephora Mask. The packaging is very similar and so are the prices. I would try this product out just to see its similarilites and differences compared to the Sephora Mask. The charcoal mask is a powder substances that you can customize yourself for your individual needs. I have never used a mask like this and I would definitely want to try this out!
Ulta Gel Shine Top Coat– My nails are definitely something I will spend my money on. I usually go to the nail salon and get my nails done. I said usually….I ALWAYS go to the nail salon. I never thought I would be okay with spending so much money on something I could easily do myself. I am going back to college soon and for one, I will not have time to go to the nail salon and two I may not be able to afford the upkeep of going so often. I decided that I will try and do my own nails. I love getting gel polish, therefore, I will try to do the gel myself. From reading the reviews, the Ulta Gel Top Coat seems to be exactly what I am looking for. Plus the price is very affordable.
I really enjoyed doing this post. I love when stores have their own products, because they are really similar to other brands but are more affordable with the same quality. I hope to get all of these beauty products soon and see how they compare to other brands.
