SharonD here! This has been an exciting week for me. I became a grandmother to the two most adorable little babies on Tuesday. I named them Mopsy and Flopsy. Nope, not rabbits, deer. The mother deer chose a quiet corner of our yard under trees and shrubs, smoothed the area and moved the mulch to make a sort of hollow. Next morning there were two little spotted fawns. Flopsy was up and running, but Mopsy was having problems. She fell asleep on one of the steps on our deck while Mom and Flopsy took off. The Wildlife Department told us to not go near the fawn and the mother will come back for her. Mom did come back and encouraged Mopsy to move and she staggered to another place and fell and wouldn’t move. By morning both fawns and Mom were gone. Today, Mom and twins were back. They were as tall as the back knee of the mother when born and now they are quite a bit bigger, maybe about 6-8” taller.
I am a person who loves eye makeup and am constantly trying to get that beautiful doe eye look. A friend kept trying to convince me that the train cases from Ulta are the best deal for the money. If you go into an Ulta store and ask for their brand, the clerks act shocked. They give you that look that says if it doesn’t cost a fortune it isn’t worth it. My friend finally sent me the spring version of the 64 piece Ulta Makeup Kit in a silver jewelry case to prove to me that she was right. As usual, she was.
The case opens to two levels plus a mirror and a lower level drawer. The top shelf has six sets of six different eye shadows. These shadows are both matte and shimmers, go on smoothly, blend beautifully and are long lasting. I find these shadows are equally as good as most of my much more expensive brand name ones.
The second shelf has two lipsticks and one lip and one eye double ended liner pencils that you can take out and carry along. Eight shimmers and nine rich colored lip glosses finished this layer out. Again these products worked like they should. The pencils didn’t tug, the glosses were packed with moisturizer and went on smoothly and the lipsticks were color drenched and creamy.
The pull out drawer holds two more glosses that you can pop in your purse, two bronzers and 3 blushes. These colors worked perfectly with my skin. They are blendable so you can get the exact color to match your skin tone.
I have had the best time playing with this Ulta Makeup Kit. I used my own brushes because the brushes that came with the kit are not to my liking. This is almost always the case with any eye palettes and in no way deters from this wonderful kit. I used the colors as they are, mixed, blended, and even used them wet. To really test them, I put them on at 8AM and had a full day of errands, and then mowed the lawn, went for a walk, cooked dinner and around 10PM they were still looking great. That had to be the hardest test I could give and they performed. The spring cases are no longer available, but do keep your eyes pealed for the winter cases soon to be released.
I highly recommend this high quality, versatile and excellent value kit to everyone!
What is your favorite eye palette and why?
