Ulta Baked Eyeshadow Trio Review (and I got a free gift)!

I dropped into Ulta today because they have this neat 13 piece free gift with a $21.50 purchase and I needed some purple and gold nail polish so I ended up snagging that and some Baked Eye Shadow Trio in Michigan Avenue (which is 3 shades of blue).

What’s to love about the Ulta Baked Eye Shadow Trio?

I normally don’t wear blue eye shadow, even in the 80’s I went for the purples and the brown shades. I always feel like I have a black eye with the blues.

I got this one because it looked so pretty and I figured it might come in handy for a Halloween costume.

I’m still not completely convinced I love the blue shades but I did really like the Ulta Baked Eye Shadow Trio as a product and want to try the Haight & Ashbury purple shades next.

This trio comes with 3 shades which I found to be pigmented, blendable and super shimmery. Of course you’re not going to get the same pigment as a high end Urban Decay set but I wouldn’t expect that in a $10 product. It’s a great product for the price.

I paired my eye shadow up with the free Plush Drama Mascara and the free Dual Ended Eye Liner in Cobalt.

Another thing I liked is that this product is Made in Canada.

My free gift for spending $21.50 on Ulta products.

I was super excited to get this gift set for free with my purchases. I love the bag and getting another purple nail polish was a nice bonus. The Plush Drama Mascara is not my favorite but it’s nice to have a spare mascara on hand. I can’t wait to try the Mineral Powder and lip products. Getting 2 brushes was plus too.

    Great post! I was at Ulta yesterday as well, looking at this kit. I’ve been using Ulta’s brand of make up for years. I love their lip pencils, nail polish and eye shadows the best. I ended up passing on this kit as I have so much flipping make up already. I love the blue shadow you got, but I have blue eyes too, so I only use blue eyeliner. Ulta is indicting isn’t it? LOL!
