Welcome back to day 8 of my 12 Days of Christmas posts! Today’s post is going to focus on one of my favourite affordable Australian brands, Ulta3. I have been extremely lucky to have been gifted many of their products, and luckily for me, they have become my new favourites. If you want to learn more about some of the amazing products from Ulta3 then keep on reading.
* Some products mentioned were generously sent to me for free to test out and share with you guys, al these products will be clearly marked*
First up let’s talk about foundation. Back in June (2020) Ulta3 released the Ace Your Base collection. This amazing collection featured primers, concealers, powders, and of course, a foundation. The Second Skin Foundation quickly became one of my favourites out of this collection. This foundation contains jojoba oil, argon oil and vitamin B5. All these goodies together mean that this product will help to keep the skin moderated and radiant. The formula also blends out so smoothly on the skin and have a buildable finish. I plan on doing a full review on this foundation in 2021 so I will save all the details for that post. *This product was sent to me for free*
Now let’s move on to cheek products. I have two amazing face palettes to share with you! Back in November 2019 Ulta3 released 2 of the ultimate face palettes, the Face The Day Baked Highlight & Contour Palette and The Cheek Of It Baked Blush Palette. The Face The Day palette contains 8 shades; 2 matte highlighters, 3 shimmer highlighters, 2 matte contour shades and 1 shimmer bronzer. It also has a good range of shades so that beauties with different skin tones could get use of the palette. This palette smells amazing! I can’t describe the smell but I just know it is a good one (wow so helpful Emma).
The Cheek Of It palette also contains 8 blush shades ranging from a beautiful light peach to a deeper crimson shade. They glide on the skin so smoothly and have just the right amount of pigment in them! This palette also smells so amazing. *Both these products were sent to me for free*
Let’s talk about brows now! Just recently (November 2020) Ulta3 released their Bow Down For Brows collection. As you could have guessed, this one focused around all the different types of brow products we would ever need. From this collection I found my new favourite brow products. Firstly we have the Shade & Shape Brow Definert. Now this is a 3-in-1 product but I really only use 2 of them. First I brush through my brows with the amazing spoolie on the end, then I put product through them with the angled pencil. The shade is perfect for me and it isn’t too pigmented or too creamy. Then I grab my other favourite product, the Set & Stay Brow & Lash Gel. This is just a clear gel product that you brush through to keep the hairs in place. It doesn’t leave my brows feeling crispy and it also doesn’t go all clumpy when applied. I love them so much and they are so affordable! *Both these products were sent to me for free*
Last but certainly not least, let’s talk about mascara. Way back in January (doesn’t that seem like so long ago?) I first got my hands on a mascara that changed my life. That might be a bit dramatic but I fell in love with it almost instantly. The Go To Great Lengths Waterproof Mascara very quickly made its way into my everyday makeup bag. Why do I love it you ask? Well, it doesn’t leave your lashes looking clumpy and thick for starters, so if that’s something you do enjoy (you do you beauties, no judgement here) then this one won’t be for you. I also tend to only use waterproof or water resistant mascaras as my eyelids can get oily, so to avoid transfer I use these types of products instead. Not only did they come out with a waterproof version, but they also have a regular one! So I know you beauties that dislike waterproof can get your hands on this one also. I finished this mascara up a few months ago and have only just repurchased (I picked up 2 so I never have to go without ever again). *This product was sent to me, however I have since repurchased myself*
Have you tried any of these products from Ulta3? What are your favourite brands at the moment? Make sure you leave me a comment and let me know 🙂
That’s all for now Beauties!
