As a Gilmore Girls fan, I was so excited to finally see a themed beauty collection! There seems to be new pop culture beauty collaborations popping up everywhere– Friends, Spongebob Squarepants, Disney, Saved by the Bell to name a few. I’m so happy to see this one happen, especially as a long-time fan! The ULTA Beauty x Gilmore Girls collection has been available for several weeks now and I was able to get my hands on some of the items that hadn’t sold out.

Gilmore Girls was one of my favorite shows back in high school and college. Fun fact, Rory and I graduated from high school the same year! It’s still one of my go-to, feel-good shows to watch– the perfect comfort binge. If you are a Gilmore Girls fan, I also highly recommend checking out the I Am All In podcast hosted by Scott Patterson. He’s watching the show for the first time episode by episode with special guests and behind-the-scenes insights. So good!
The ULTA Beauty x Gilmore Girls collection features makeup, skincare, beauty tools, hair accessories and candles. I picked up two makeup gift sets– eyeshadow palettes and lip sets– along with a candle. Travel mug is not included in the collection, but you can shop this mug here!
Like Mother, Like Daughter
What’s better than one eyeshadow palette? A duo, of course! The ULTA Beauty Collection x Gilmore Girls Eye Shadow Palette Duo contains two separate palettes with fall perfect shades. Shade names include Al’s Pancakes (shimmer bronze), I Smell Snow (light pink), Movie Night (deep mauve) and Luke’s (light nude). The shades are pretty and wearable.
ULTA’s signature products are necessarily the best quality but these eyeshadows have better pigmentation than I expected. I’ve been using the ‘I’m the Rory to your Lorelai’ palette (shown above) and have been creating some fun fall looks with it. I love that I can keep my eyes soft and subtle or deepen them with the darker mauve and taupe shades.
First I Drink the Coffee…
I also picked up the Lip Gloss Set, which contains two lip glosses and two lip oils. Lip oils have been my go-to lately and I’ve found myself reaching for the mauve tone (Like Mother Like Daughter) often. It feels comfortable on the lips and gives a nice amount of sheer color. The Lip Glosses are fairly sheer as well with a bit more color pigment. I love how all these shades are super wearable.
…Then I Do The Things
What’s a Gilmore Girls collection without something coffee-related… or a touch of cynicism for that matter?! The ‘Coffee Please’ Vanilla Latte Scented Candle smells just like a vanilla latte– warm, inviting and slightly sweet. It features notes of coconut creme, steamed milk, espresso, vanilla and soft sandalwood. Definitely gives cozy fall vibes and would be perfect to burn while binging GG.
It’s on the pricier side at $20, but it is a good size with 3 wicks. I almost don’t even want to burn it!
Overall I think the ULTA Beauty x Gilmore Girls collection is super cute and a must for any Gilmore Girls fan. In fact, with the holidays just around the corner it would be the perfect gift for all the GG lovers in your life! You can shop this collection online at ulta.com and in-store.
