REVIEW -- Ulta Holiday Glitter Liners


Hey everyone! Today I have a quick review of the Ulta Holiday Glitter Liners for you. These don't need much of an intro, so let's get started with the review!

THE PRODUCT:
Some variation of these come around every year for the Ulta holiday 5 for $5 sale. The key being that you have to buy 5 items, otherwise you'll pay regular price. (Regular price on these is $7 a piece.) However, there are a plethora of items in the 5 for $5 section to choose from: bath wash/soaps/loofas, lip glosses and balms, lotions, nail care implements, nail polishes, etc..

And think about it, you could even buy 5 liners for $5. THAT is an amazing deal!

In-store you have four colors to pick from: Topaz, Black, Teal and Purple. Online you can choose Silver instead of Purple... but they aren't 5 for $5.

From L-R: Topaz, Black, Teal, Purple

MY RESULTS:
I'm not a huge fan of kohl liners because I prefer to use liquid liner on my top lid and use shadow on my bottom lash line. However, at a dollar a piece I figured I could definitely give these a try. I have to admit, they pleasantly surprised me! The liners work very nicely on my bottom lash line.

They're smooth, pigmented and very blendable.. and I like the subtle sparkle that the glitter in the liner adds.

From Top to Bottom: Black, Topaz, Teal and Purple
But if we're being completely honest, I have to admit that I was a bit wary of the glitter because it can irritate my eyes so badly. However, the glitter in these is very fine and hasn't irritated my eyes at all..  that's a huge plus for me!

Here's a picture of the Black and Topaz liners in action on my Gold/Bronze Smokey EOTD. I faded them into each other on my bottom lash line.



FINAL VERDICT & RATING:
I really love these liners! A full size $7 liner for only $1? Count me in! I wish they had more colors available.. or that I could find the silver one for $1. I'll be honest and admit that I've bought 3 sets of them for myself because I've been using them daily since I bought my first set!

I love the quality of the liners and how pigmented and blendable they are. I also appreciate that they last all day and that the glitter in them doesn't irritate my eyes. (For the record, I wear contacts.)

I'm giving these a perfect score! If you have a chance to run by Ulta.. be sure to grab some! They'd make a perfect stocking stuffer or Christmas gifts for friends.. or maybe even a little special treat for yourself!
RATING 5 out of 5 STARS
