This is an online purchase I made from ulta.com.
I purchased two of the Rimmel Lasting 25 Hour Foundations (awesome, btw) and I selected the new option for samples – the Ulta 3 piece sampler. I was very impressed by the samples that they gave.
They gave me a full size Ulta Single Shadow in Firework, a travel size 2 fl oz Ulta brand lotion in Freshwater Mist, and finally a mini Ulta brand Hydra Quench Foaming Oil Cleanser .5 fl oz from their skincare line.
The samples they gave are AMAZING and a very nice size. The color of eye shadow they provided is the a great color for me since it is similar to my every day shades. However, I would like to point out that the color Firework was a sale item at $0.99 and is no longer for sale at the Ulta site. I’ve used 3 full size Ulta lotions within the last year so I’m happy to have a mini sized lotion. And lastly, I’ve been wanting to try cleansing oils so I’m ECSTATIC that I have the chance to finally try one.
I was happy to see that they weren’t completely handing out “throw away” products like obnoxious colored makeup, low rated makeup products, or single sheets of makeup wipes. I usually get liqua-touch or tiny perfume vials with the 3 piece fragrance sampler, foil packets for the skin care that usually only have one use, or some combination of the two with the variety sampler. The eye shadow was the only “throw away” product since it is a pretty weird color for most (true shimmery red) but everything else is great for anybody. I’d imagine any other makeup products they’d give as samples would be similar to the eye shadow – a discontinued product/shade that they just want out of their warehouse. But no complaints here! I’d only be upset if it were straight up yellow or orange. Most other colors of the rainbow can at least be used on the lower lash line for a pop of color.
Now I have a great reason to start shopping online at Ulta instead of going into the store.
The samples that you receive with the Ulta 3 piece sampler makes the almost $6.00 shipping worth it.
