My Experience & Review;
I can’t get over how pigmented the sparkly Master Metals Eyeshadows are!! They’re one-swipe intensity and they’re some of the prettiest shimmers I own. I love the dark twist these shades bring into play for the trans-seasonal aspect, these would be suited for any occasion or season yet bring such a character to the end of Summer! I think my favourite shade is ‘Bronze’ as it has an almost gold-like shimmer glow to it in the natural light or sun light, it is a gorgeous colour. These would be perfect to create smokey eye looks or even just to wear on the lid with a neutral toned crease. The Ultramatte Lip Cream formula is extremely light-weight upon wear on the lips and almost dries instantly as most lip creams do. The pigment is pretty intense but I find one layer is a little less opaque due to the edges on the doe-foot during application so I would do two layers to make it completely opaque and for a full coverage. I ADORE the colour of the ‘Strike Out’ lip cream, it is a dark burgundy purple plum, it is truly stunning. You can see it in the swatch photo above at the bottom.
The Nail Polishes come in three gorgeous colours; ‘Thunder’, ‘Sangria’ and ‘Evolve’. I haven’t yet tried these but I will be shortly and will post a upcoming post on my Instagram Coco and Chino’s so stay tuned for that! I’ve been enjoying using the Great Lengths Mascara, it’s pretty volumising and provides a nice natural looking extra length to my lashes. The colour is a lovely intense black which matches my hair colour too. As far as the mascara’s are concerned, I haven’t tried the others as yet but I have enjoyed the great lengths mascara. You definitely get a lovely amount of produce in the tube and I can see myself using this one up before 6 months is up.
I think Ulta3 have nailed this range, the colours are all different and warm-deep tones and the products provide a lovely on-trend look opportunity for anyone who wears them. The options really are endless! I love this dark twist toward the end of the Summer in Australia and the best part of all, is the affordability! You won’t need to break the bank with this range at all! I highly recommend this new release, particularly the Master Metals Eyeshadows and Nail Polishes, they’re stunning! There is so many on-trend looks that can be created using these gorgeous products and better yet, they’re cruelty free and vegan! And, in an effort to help the bushfire affected communities, Ulta3 will be donating 100% of profits from sales for the next two weeks to the FRRR Disaster Resilience & Recovery Fund, which will aid people in recovery that have been directly affected by the devastating bushfires across Australia.
