I hope you all had a Merry Christmas! And yay I got something I could review! This is I believe the Sparkle & Shine kit and every year Ulta sells these kits featuring a variation of they’re line of makeup. They come in cute sturdy cases and are great Christmas gift ideas. I haven’t tried much of the Ulta brand makeup, but my sister received one of these kits last year and I was very impressed by the quality of the eyeshadows! So here’s my mini review of the different products in here.
So this kit comes in a very cute garnet, faux-alligator print case that is actually very compact. The plastic covers show the names of everything if you want to find a shade in their full size.
This layer contains eyeshadows, blushes, face powder, and cream eyeshadows. The eyeshadows are all very soft and buttery and their all pretty pigmented. The cream shadows don’t pick up much at all, and the blushes are actually really nice.

▫️2nd Layer Underneath, two side sections come out and this left one has blushes, concealer/correctors, lip color pans, lip primer, a lipstick, and a gold eyeshadow pigment. I found the lip color pans to not pick up much at all, and the gold pigment to be very smooth and pigmented.
▫️3rd Layer This is the right section and has brow powders, eyeshadows, a lipstick, gel eyeliners, and a light pink pigment. The brow powders are very pigmented and all but the blue and purple gel liners were really nice as well.
▫️This kit also contains a couple of travel sized brushes, and two dual ended eyeliners. I’m looking forward to playing with this more and having everything conveniently in one. So far what I’ve noticed I would repurchase would be the brow powders, eyeshadows, and the blushes. The two pigments are also very good quality as well as the brushes.
▫️Not too long ago I purchased their foundation stick in the darkest color and been using it to contour. It has made daily contouring very easy! I also really wanna try their new powder contour and highlighter kit!
