Cant Complain at all.
With the $3 price tag, and brilliant range of colours, i cant complain at all. I have these in 3 colours, Misty Mauve (mauve), Nearly Nude (nude) and Voodoo (pink with gold shimmer). They are totally excellent colours, and very unique indeed. With the cheap price tag, i know i can get more when i want to with my change, instead of blowing about $15 for each lipstick! It has a really good staying power as well, that lasts the whole day and for ages. On the downside, as they are abit drying because its a matte formula, i tend to use lip gloss or lip balm before and after application, which helps smoothen it abit more, and i can apply it more smoothly and seems abit more sheer.Overall though, i will definitely buy more colours

Bargain and brilliant
If your like me, I tend to have a lipstick in every bag, draw, and in my car and, on a lot of occasions, I lose them. So when I saw the Ultra 3 range at my local chemist, I was stand offish because of the low prices, but after trying a couple of products, all i can say is WOW! The lipsticks dont have a grosse taste like a lot of cheap lipsticks do, and the colour range is terrific. Its long lasting and Im sold.

These have to be the by far the best bargains I have in my makeup bag. The matte formula makes them last, and I mean really last! I generally have a problem with my lipstick disappearing after probably 10 mins but these are great! I have the colours Misty Mauve and Rose Bloom (not mentioned?) and I truly couldn't be happier with pigmentation, lasting and of course the price!
Next on my list is Harem Pink, a friend was wearing it on a recent trip we took and the colour is amazing!

Simply irresistable :)
I bought 2 of these on a whim one day, and have not regretted it. The Ulta 3 Matte lipsticks are amazing, I'm totally in love with them, the colour range is a bit limited but for the price of $2.95 who cares, you can buy a few and see which one is best. It's packaged in a no frills matte tube with nothing remarkable about the outside casing. They wind up and down easily with no catching or jerking to it, they have a very light lipsticky smell to them, but it isn't at all unpleasant. The matte formula is very creamy and applies very easily, after a while they can feel a bit drying on the lips but this can be combated by applying a lip balm first. The formula easily lasts me 6 + hours of regular wear, while eating and drinking, so it's an extremely long wearing lipstick! If you want extra gloss simply apply a favourite lipgloss over the top and Ta - Da you have a long wearing glossy lipstick.
For $2.95 go nuts, and get one of each colour :)
If you find the formula drying simply apply a lip balm first for moisture, and if you want add a glossy top coat for a long lasting glossy lipstick.
perfect for people who love their lipstick and are looking for a long wearing lipstick at a bargain pricetag.

Matte lasts longer!
I'm loving this range of lipsticks! Matte is my favourite look these days and Ulta3 provides cheap and great quality lipsticks. I have the Voodoo shade and it looks great on during the day. It's a lightweight formula and the matte finish does last longer than the high-shine lipsticks. Very happy!
Lip liner always give the appearance of fuller lips, so I line my lips and then put the lipstick on.
Girls that want to look great and have fun!

amazing colours and staying power
I have been searching for THE perfect colour for my lips, you know they say something like 1 shade darker than your normal lip colour, to look natural , anyway i saw these for dirt cheap at a pharmacy in brisbane and bought 3 of them now i wish i had bought more, and plan to when i go back there, in fact im sending some to my friends in the uk,
the rose bloom is universally flattering i think its perfect shade of natural, and lasts all day, matte is how i like my lipstick, but they usually cake in the corners of my mouth of along the line where my lips meet, but i have not had any of that with ulta3 amazing

Cheap but wonderful

Went get medicine came back with lipstick
Yes, I didn't plant on purchasing this little number but the long wait at the pharmacy was the perfect justification for picking this item up. I am impressed with the texture and isn't too overly drying. Although the staying power isn't that great I think the colour range and pigmentation makes up for it!

After reading the BH reviews about this product, I just had to try it. I was certainly not disappointed. This really is a fantastic, effective product at a cost-efficient price. The colour is highly pigmented so you get a beautiful even application. Unlike some (more expensive) lipstick brands, the formula doesn't dry your lips out quickly or make them look cracked. The colour lasts all day long and, personally, the colour range suited my skin tone very well.

I'm really loving the matte colour range they have, and at that low price, I can try as many as I like!! Only thing is that they're a little drying, but I already have dry lips so this problem might not occur with other people (and this is easily cured with a bit of lip balm as either a base or top coat). Also great staying power and pigment for such a low price. Ulta3 ftw!

Excellent staying power!
This is probably the only lipstick that would have the worlds best staying power AND come at a VERY affordable price. I love Ulta3 products and am very impressed with what it has produced so far. Yay, Ulta3!

cheap and cheerful
While not generally a lippy-wearer, even I have to admit that this stuff has crazy staying power! With such affordable prices and wide colour range, how could this not be a winner?

Matte me up baby!
This lipstick is amazing! it has great staying power and is highly pigmented so it goes on like a dream and the colour lasts all day. The best thing of all, it's cheap enough for me to try a million and one colours for a different look every weekend!
