ULTA Gold Brilliant Color Eyeshadow
ULTA Gold Brilliant Color Eyeshadow

Today, I have the last four shades from ULTA’s Brilliant Color Eyeshadow ($10.00 for 0.12 oz.) range! (If you missed part one and two, check them out here and 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.

Gold Brilliant Color Eyeshadow ($10.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, yellow gold with strong, warm undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. It had good color payoff when applied dry, but it was more opaque and smoother when applied with a dampened brush. It wore well for eight and a half hours before starting to crease. Makeup Geek Gold Digger (P, $5.99) is more orange. MAC Her Cocoa #1 (LE, $15.00) is very similar. Giorgio Armani #1 Spring 2012 #3 (LE) is lighter. Le Metier de Beaute Goldstone (P, $30.00) is darker. bareMinerals Gold Nugget (LE, $18.00) is less metallic. See comparison swatches.

Sage Brilliant Color Eyeshadow ($10.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark, warm-toned green with a soft, frosted sheen. It had so-so pigmentation when applied dry, and it was more opaque when applied damp, but it was one of the weaker shades in terms of pigmentation in the range. It lasted for almost eight hours before it started to crease. Makeup Geek Shimmermint (P, $5.99) is lighter. theBalm Runaround Rebecca (P, $16.00) is similar. Urban Decay Mildew (P, $18.00) is warmer. MAC Golden Olive (LE, $21.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Silver Brilliant Color Eyeshadow ($10.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium, cool-toned silver with a frosted, metallic finish. It was sheer when applied dry, and when applied with a dampened brush, it was semi-opaque. This shade lasted for seven and a half hours before it seemed to fade. It’s a very commonly seen shade, so there are plenty of similar shades: see comparison swatches.

Teal Brilliant Color Eyeshadow ($10.00 for 0.12 oz.) is is a muted, medium-dark blue with a frosted, metallic finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation when applied dry, and it intensified to mostly opaque color coverage when applied with a dampened brush. The color wore well for almost eight hours before showing signs of fading.L’Oreal Timeless Blue Spark (760) (P, $7.99) is very, very similar. Giorgio Armani Blue Beetle (34) (LE, $33.00) has a duochrome. Disney by Sephora Friend Like Me (LE) is darker, less shimmery. MAC Divine Blue (LE, $19.50) is lighter. MAC Dimensional Blue (LE, $19.50) is lighter. L’Oreal Infinite Sky (P, $7.99) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Sage and teal are so pretty! I love how the eye look you did almost has a sort of ‘colour blocking’ effect; I think it’s stunning! 😀

Most of gold eyeshadows has good color payoff.
I remember L’OREAL Infallible Eyeshadow ‘Gold Imperial’, L’OREAL Infallible Eyeshadow ‘Gold Emerald’, LANCÔME Eternal Gold (101)…!!
I would like most of green and blue shadows to have good pigmentation!

Maybe I was getting flashbacks of a deceptively sturdy blush package similar to these eyeshadows a while ago. I haven’t trusted these kinds of packaging ever since then, lol.
