I am a little surprised that these get rather high ratings. I bought 8 of these last year when they were on sale, BOGO (or one of their sales that made these really cheap/super-affordable). I find all of the shades to be very extremely flat (even the sparkly/glittery/shimmery ones..??) and very severely lacking in pigmentation. I have to apply several layers, and they also look patchy easily; for me they are hard to blend, even using different primers and even applying a foundation or concealer to my eyelids, no matter what little 'tricks' I tried, or even what I used to apply these (various brushes, sponges, even my fingertips), these just were not good. Wear-time was even worse, I got barely an hour of wear out of these before they either faded into nothing or creased or started to look even more patchy. These might be nice for someone just starting out with makeup and can't afford a lot, if you get them on sale. I would think someone getting into makeup would not want a heavy dramatic look anyway, so this "lighter" (ie: less pigmentation) look might be perfect. Also for me generally speaking the colors in the pan varied greatly as opposed to what they look like swatched on my hands and applied to my eyelids. But I gave these 2 stars as opposed to one, because I think there is a market out there for this. However, for me, even if I was a newbie, I think I would stick with the Maybelline or Covergirl eyeshadow singles. I think they are actually even more affordable and IME perform and wear much better.

I bought this shadows a while back, but the got lost at the bottom of all my makeup, but I just did a clean and found them again a couple months back. I have 7 shades, 4 trials (Naked (GL), Cala lily (SH), Mystique (SH), Key West (SH)) & 3 full size (Mist (SH), Satine (SH), Sable (MT)). They are all pigmented, the shimmer shades may be a little less than the matte shades, but they do give a good color payout and you can put as little or pack more color. They blend great, and they have a great price for the amount of product you get. The last me all day and don't move, of course I always use a primer with all my shadows.The only 2 shades I am not crazy for is Satine (pink) & Mist (olive green/yellow), the first one because the color doesn't look good on me, and the second one because it is a color I just don't ever think of. But for my everyday (actually everyday) simple routine, Sable (latte brown) and Naked (off white), are my go to shadows, Sable for all over lid and Naked as a inner corner eye highlight.One last thing, Ulta has matte, shimmer (most of the selection of colors are this type) and glitter shadows, and the glitter one are very glittery so if it is day-wear use little if not it is going to look like nightwear. Naked is glitter and that is why I use a bit of it as a highlight in the inner corner.

Nice selection of colors and good amount of product in the pan at an excellent price (especially if you get them on sale). These shadows last all day with primer and I don't have a problem with creasing, fading, or fallout. I've bought Elegance, Mystique, and Twilight, and while they are pretty, there really isn't a lot of color payoff for me. I love Gold Dust (although I don't understand the name of it because it's not gold at all...) though: it's the perfect crease color for me. It's a very cool brownish, purplish taupe. My daughter uses Silk and Peacock and loves both of them. She uses silk as a wash with just her eyeliner, and Peacock as a lid color and they look really nice on her. (Very fair skin, dark red hair and green eyes).

I have tried alot of Ulta eyeshadows. The pluses for this brand is 1) cost 2) range of colors and 3) highly pigmented. I have been very fortunate to get alot of the eyeshadows for free. When there is a super sale, you can get these for about $1. I do get compliments when I wear these eyeshadows. But here is the negatives 1) very shimmery 2) no lasting power, it falls off into your eyes. I can deal with the shimmery by only using it for a night look, but the fact the eyeshadow flakes off into eyes is just too much. I wear contacts and I constantly have itchy watery eyes. I do prime my lids before using this, but it still falls off.

I have this in Bermuda Sands, Seashell and Gunmetal. I truly love them all, but Bermuda Sands is my favorite shadow ever - a perfect peachy beige. I think I bought them a couple years ago, and maybe the formulation has changes, but I have no problems with them being chalky or getting a film. They also work great with a damp brush, just treat them more like baked shadows. Would repurchase if I run out.

I'm not a big fan of Ulta eyeshadows as they can have tons of fallout, be chalky, not true to color, and not very longwearing.Now I'm not saying all of them are like that, just the ones I have used in the sets they sell. Individually, these eyeshadows are a tad too pricey for the quality they offer, but on sale I would say it's a fairly decent offer. I would not repurchase because I would opt for another less expensive, better quality drugstore brand or a higher end one.

I bought 2 dark Ulta eyeshadows to use as eyeliner on my bottom lashline and I really like how it lasts. I use a thin, flat eyeliner brush that came with my E.L.F. cream eyeliner to brush on the Ulta eyeshadow. It lasts all day and I can use as much or as little as I want. It seems to work both wet and dry for me. I also got it for steal at 2 for $6 sale.

General highlights: many colors, quick and easy, doesn't last long |||||This is my go-to daily eyeshadow. I normally use it in Sterling in the winter, and switch to Aztec Gold in the summer. It's just a simple, one-shade shadow for your lids. It contains cornstarch, which helps makeup last longer, but I find that it fades and comes off very quickly. Definitely doesn't last all day. But it's good enough for a day at work or school, and you can get them at a pretty good price when Ulta has sales. They come in so many colors!
