Recently, I got a free eyeshadow sample from ULTA (They gave me a full sized eyeshadow!). The color is called Sandstone. It looks kind of silvery brown if you touch it by the finger, but in the package, it's much more brown.
It's a warm brown with a nice frost to it. It can almost pass for a taupe/beige color. The pigmentation is really nice! I'm not too fond of the ULTA eyeshadow when it comes to their palettes because they tend to be chalky. However, the single eyeshadows are really pigmented and not chalky at all.
It can be worn alone as a light wash of color or can be applied with a smokey eye look for the day time. Also, it would look nice with a dark brown or deep plum in the creases.
ULTA eyeshadows don't crease on me, however, some people do complain. But c'mon, it's an eyeshadow. And the price is great! They're about $7.00. Right now, ULTA has a special going - Buy 3, Get 3 Free. That's 6 eyeshadow for $21. And the container is huge!!!! A MAC eyeshadow is 1.5 grams. An ULTA eyeshadow is 3.8 grams. Huge difference!
The one thing that annoys me about ULTA's new packaging is how they engrave the word ULTA everywhere in the eyeshadow which means less eyeshadow for me. Arghh!!! It's so annoying!

Has anyone else tried ULTA eyeshadows?
