Ulta Color Coat Cream Eye Shadows

Sorry for my slight hiatus - this last week was crazy busy and I didn't have time to get a Friday blog post up! But enough excuses, because what I'm about to show you are some of my new favorite eye products. Today I'm talking about Ulta's new Color Coat cream eye shadows!

It's no secret. If you follow Glazed Over, you know I love a good cream eye shadow (specifically my Maybelline Color Tattoos). So when I saw The Muse's blog post about these, I made it my mission to get my hands on my favorite colors. I picked up just three (there are a total of eight in the collection) in the shades Rose Gold, Metallic, and Shimmering Topaz.

I didn't expect too much from these because we all know how great some "store brands" can be - but I have to say I am a huge fan. These are so much better than I expected. Dare I say I love them as much, and maybe a little bit more than my Maybelline Color Tattoos? 

The formula is super creamy and pigmented. They aren't nearly as hard as the Color Tattoos can be - they almost have a whipped consistency, but that makes them sound lighter than they really are. They glide on very easily and once they set they don't budge at all.

I've worn both Shimmering Topaz and Rose Gold and didn't have an issue with creasing, and they lasted 10+ hours.

As you can tell from these swatches, these catch the light really well. They've got just the right amount of shimmer without being obnoxious. I think as we transition in to fall, these are pigmented enough to mesh well with bold looks typical of the season. 

I would recommend these as highly as I do the Maybelline Color Tattoos, but if you're on a budget, the Color Tattoos are cheaper (retailing around $6). These Color Coat shadows retail for $8 and are available exclusively at Ulta. 

Go get you some!
