An Ulta Beauty was put in in my town.. I usually wear drugstore makeup. I’m planning to go check it out this morning, (I’ve heard their Brow Bar is good?!) I don’t know what stuff is good to save or splurge on or what all is good there.
What are your favorites?

Yay for you! I love Ulta. The employees there should be more than happy to give you suggestions and help you try out different products. My Ulta staples are:
Anastasia Brow Wiz & Brow Powder
Bare Minerals foundation (Bare Skin and Original), mascara (Lash Domination and Curl & Lengthen), & waterproof eyeliner
Tarte BB Cream
All 3 Urban Decay Naked pallets
Pacifica products (perfume, lotions, etc.)
Batiste Dry Shampoo
Mizani hair products (hairspray & serum)
Plus I usually buy things there that I can also get at drug stores, like makeup removing wipes and deodorant. There is an Ulta in the shopping center right across the street from my townhouse, so it’s trouble. 🙂 Have fun!!

I like their hair stuff and they carry NYX which is an affordable makeup line that has MAC dupes. The rest of the stuff can be found other places so it’s no big deal. I go there with their weekly coupons or when stuff is on sale.

I think Ulta carries the Lorac eyeshadow palette (I got it off amazon) which is ah-mazing, and I also really like their eyeliner pencils!

lorac foundation- i switched from urban decay to this brand this year and i love it.
benefit they are real mascarra
ulta brand blush in -flush and adore i had a duo pack and swirled the two colors together and loved it– now since i used all that i just wear adore.
there 3 x a year 20 percent coupon is faboulous- sign up to be an ulta reward member and every time you purchase things points are add and when ever you have 300 or more points it equals to 3 dollars off purchases.
benefit brow bar is good when you have a good person doing it– i have had two people there do my brows one was AMAZING one was eh i could have done better

joleegirl: What are you looking for? Ulta is a mid-range/drugstore combo. I’m going there tomorrow actually. I recommend Urban Decay makeup and Boscia skincare products. The Brow Bar is part of the Benefit cosmetics section. I think their prices are ridiculous but if you’re willing to pay $20 to have your eyebrows tweezed to an arch then so be it. The Ulta salon is the only place I go to get my hair done. Don’t forget to sign up for the club card. You earn bonus points every time you shop.

I worked at Ulta for nearly 4 years, so I’ve tried pretty much everything they carry!
My favorites are:
Peter Thomas Roth Oil-less Oil (100% Sugarcane-derived squalane. I use this for both moisturizer and eye cream. Anything that’s left on my hands, I work into the ends of my hair) $40
Urban Decay Eden eyeshadow primer potion: Light yellow color, perfect for evening the skintone on your eyelids, even without eyeshadow! $20
Amazing Cosmetics: Concealer. 22% pigment (as opposed to the 3-10% you will find in drugstore cosmetics) That stuff will cover EVERYTHING and it takes soooo little that the tube will last you FOREVER! Small tube is $24

Love Ulta! I am OBSESSED with the Ulta brand butter balm. It is lip gloss but it isn’t sticky at all. I have it in a coral-y color and it is my favorite!

asianyoushi: Aquaria: Dang!.. $20? I heard good stuff about them, but my brows are already shaped, so maybe I’ll skip that for now.
asianyoushi: bbbria: I will definately check those out
s2bmrscook: Thanks for that! I will be getting some Amamzing Cosmetics, I’ve been looking for a good concealer
SoonToBeSimmons: Awesome! Love me some good lip products, but I’m picky about lip gloss because of it being sticky. I’ll check it out!
