ULTA Pink Brilliant Color Eyeshadow
ULTA Pink Brilliant Color Eyeshadow

Today, I have three more shades from ULTA’s Brilliant Color Eyeshadow ($10.00 for 0.12 oz.) range! (If you missed part one, check it out here.) To recap–generally–the formula wears about eight hours, is nicely pigmented, and has a soft, smooth texture. It feels like a pressed eyeshadow, for the most part, but it is soft to the point where it almost loosens. If you’re familiar with L’Oreal’s Infallible Eyeshadow, Lancome Infinite Color Design Eyeshadow, or Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense, this formula will be recognizable.

Pink Brilliant Color Eyeshadow ($10.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium, yellow-toned pink with a frosted, slightly metallic, finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation when applied dry, and then it was fully opaque when applied damp. It could be layered for fully opaque color dry, though. The color wore well for eight and a half hours before showing signs of fading. MAC Pink Sensibilities #3 (LE, $21.00) is very similar. L’Oreal Always Pearly Pink (756) (P, $7.99) is not as warm-toned. Tom Ford Beauty Seductive Rose #2 (P) is more glittery. Too Faced Taffy (LE, $16.00) is similar. Urban Decay Minor Sin (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery, warmer. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Tease #5 (P) is lighter, cooler. Urban Decay SWF (P, $18.00) is darker. Chanel Harmonie du Soir #4 (LE) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Purple Brilliant Color Eyeshadow ($10.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark, lightly cool-toned purple with a frosted finish. It had the same color payoff whether applied wet or dry–mostly opaque but not fully. It had a soft, smooth consistency, and it was buildable. The color lasted for eight hours on me before starting to crease. Sleek MakeUP Bliss in Barcelona (LE, $9.99) is cooler-toned. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Tease #1 (P) is less frosted. MAC Pinkluxe #4 (P) is warmer. MAC Plush (DC, $21.00) is warmer, less frosted. Urban Decay Rockstar (P, $18.00) is darker, less frosted, cooler-toned. Urban Decay Gravity (LE, $18.00) is slightly cooler-toned. L’Oreal Perpetual Purple is slightly darker,cooler-toned but very similar. See comparison swatches.

Night Sky Brilliant Color Eyeshadow ($10.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark black with silver sparkle and shimmer over a satin base. It was semi-sheer when applied dry, and then it was more opaque when applied with a dampened brush. The texture of this was a little drier, so blending it takes some time and is not as easy as other shades. The effect can be pretty intense when applied wet, and surprisingly, the fall out was very minimal during the eight hours it lasted. Tarina Tarantino Diamond Dusk #5 (LE) is cooler-toned. Too Faced Pure Glam (LE, $16.00) and Marc Jacobs Beauty The Mod #2 (P) are less shimmery. Bobbi Brown Lava (LE) is similar. Chanel Mirifique (P, $36.00) is a cream product. Buxom Black Lab (P, $18.00) is also a cream-product. bareMinerals Penthouse (LE) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

  1. That purple shade looks amazing, I have been loving purple lately and I want that eyeshadow so bad! The eyeshadow look using all of the colours also looks very beautiful together.

  2. That purple is bad ass!

  3. Oooh the purple is really gorgeous! It would be perfect for a dark smoldering smokey eye!

    AHHH! <3

    I was hoping you'd swatch the purple one next! It looks amazing, definitely on my "To buy list" Thanks Christine! XO

  6. The pink shade would be perfect for Valentine’s Day look without looking like one is sick! I dislike pink eyeshadows for the most part, but I think the frosty finish really helps this shade stand out!

    I have recently found SOME pinks that I’m not allergic to and can wear and have really, really gotten into pink! So I’ll have to check out the ingredient list on this pink one and give it a try. I’m really loving pink shiny eyeshadow right now.
