Review: Ulta3 Gel Look Nail Colour and Lipstick *

I have to say, I'm naturally biased towards Ulta3 nail polishes, because I think they are fabulous, and let me tell you, this new gel look nail colour is certainly no different!

A new release in July, it lives up to the awesomeness of the regular Ulta3 polishes, in that it goes on smoothly, and looks shiny, and that's just one coat! Sadly, I found that this wore on the tips under 2 days, which was a little faster than the regular polishes.

What I do LOVE about this, though, is that the brush is wider than those of he normal polishes, and it makes application a breeze! Peacock Purple looks like just that - a vibrant aubergine that would shine brightly on a bird, making it want to puff out his chest and display his feathers. Too pretty!

This little baby retails for $3.95. 

I was also sent one of the lippies from their moisturising lipstick range. As someone who's first introduction to the range was through one of the moisturising lipsticks, I was delighted! 

I got Flamingo Pink, which, while it looks a little intimidating, being this bright, it's actually quite toned down on the lips. I have this in Cherry Wine, and while the formula is similar in that it does glide on quite nicely, the colour payoff is more of that of a coloured lipbalm.

This picture was taken after about 4 or 5 swipes across the arm. As you can see, it's quite bright, but takes a little to build up. It does live up to the name of being moisturising, however! This is light on the lips, and keeps them feeling moisturised for a couple of hours. You can pick this baby up for $3.95.

As always, great products that don't break the bank! I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for more gel look colours the next time I'm out and about!

Have you tried either of these products? Are you curious about the gel look line?

  1. I want to try this new gel like formula. I have used their original ones and quite liked them. I have one matte lippie from them and lovely deep berry shade!!

    1. I still haven't tried their matte lippies yet!

  2. Gorgeous lipstick colour, I tried Ulta's metalic purple nail polish when I was very young (it was also my only nail polish at that time!)

  3. $4 is so affordable for a gel polish! :D

    1. Or cheap for a gel-like polish, at least. ;)

  4. Love the colours! It's a shame that it doesn't last too long though but I guess for the price, you can't complain too much! xx

  5. I walked past a pharmacy I've never been into a couple of hours ago, saw and Ulta3 stand and had to go in and check if there were any new nail colours I didn't have, I bought Peacock Purple gel look, and My Macaroon in the regular line, I love both, but can't speak for wear time as yet. I love the gel look brush, I'm definitely going back for more as long as this one doesn't peel straight off, tip wear I can deal with. I'm not a fan of the regular lippies but the matte ones are bomb digs.
