Ulta: Exciting September Events Worth Checking Out!

I prefer Sephora because it doesn't take 2 years to build enough points to get a few bucks off your purchase or a pack of cotton balls. But now that ULTA is stepping up their game, adding new brands, and special events, I'm becoming more and more of a fan. I got my recent ULTA circular the other day, and was so excited to see all of the beauty deals coming up for the month of September. There are four weeks of beauty deals that are available during the time along with certain brands doing in-store events (i.e, you can get your makeup done with one of them if you sign up). The deals consist of things like being able to get some of our favorite products for a much cheaper price. Since its such a rarity to be able to get any kind of sale on higher-end makeup brands (Smashbox, Tarte, Too-Faced, Benefit, etc), this is a major deal and the reason why I marked some of the dates on my calender.
I'm only listing the "Beauty Steals" and not the in-store events. I don't really care about this part because I have had bad luck with the results of the "makeovers" I've suffered at the hands of some of these "professionals". Who shall remain nameless. ( but one of them rhymes with "Do-Placed")

Exclusions: Limit 2 per customer, beauty steals are for ONE day only, BOGO free or BOGO 50% off item must be of equal or lesser value. You don't have to take part in the beauty event to be able to buy the "beauty steal". 

SO excited for the September 20th beauty steal! Scroll down and see why!  

Week 1 Sunday September 4th:
Bare Minerals Prime Time Eyelid Primer $12 (reg. $18)

Monday September 5th:
Philosophy Lipshine, Buy 1, get one 50% off (reg. $10 each)

Tuesday September 6th:
Hydroxatone Hydrolyze 20% off (reg. $80)

Wednesday September 7th
Stila Lip Glaze $11 (reg. $22)

Sunday September 11th
Tarte Gifted Mascara $10 (reg. $19)

Monday September 12th
Philosophy Purity Wipes $12 (reg. $20)

Tuesday September 13th
StriVectin Scrub FREE w/ any StriVectin purchase ($45 value)

Wednesday September 14th
Murad Hybrids, buy 1, get one 50% off (reg. $35)

Sunday September 18th
Kinerase, buy 1, get 1 50% off (reg. $28-$150)

Monday September 19th
Tarte EmphasEyes Aqua Gel Eyeliner $9 (reg. $18)

Tuesday September 20th
Butter London, buy 1 get 1 FREE! (reg. $14 each) HOW GREAT IS THIS DEAL?! It's worth picking up 2 polishes to get the additional 2 for free. You can now justify spending $14 for a nail polish (that is smaller than an OPI polish to begin with, I might add)

Wednesday September 21st
Cargo OneBase Foundation and Concealer in one $13 (reg. $26)

3X ULTA BONUS POINTS FOR EVERYTHING IN THE STORE FROM SEPTEMBER 4-24th, take your coupon in from the ad so they can scan it. You can only use this coupon ONCE. 

In other ULTA news: 
Certain ULTA locations will be getting the Lancome line in their stores. If you get the ad sent to your home, there should be a place on the back of it where they have listed the store that is closest to you that will have Lancome. Lancome is pricey, perhaps the priciest makeup line to be carried at ULTA, but their products are A+ quality. Lancome happens to the the #1 prestige beauty brand in the world. I'm excited to try out their Hypnose Doll Lashes mascara! Doll Lashes + bold lip is what is hot right now in makeup, by the way.

There are also some amazing free gifts with purchase of lots of tempting little makeup sets from Tarte, Benefit, Bare Escentuals, Laura Geller, Lorac, and more. My personal fave would be the Tarte set that includes a full size Amazonian Clay blush, Lights Camera Lashes mascara, eyeliner, and eyeshadow palette for $39 and there is a free gift of a mini Park Avenue Princess bronzer and mini lip product. That is what I call a beauty steal. For a full list of all other deals going on for September at ULTA, go visit their website. 

P.S. ULTA doesn't like when you return something that qualified you to get you a gift with purchase unless you are also returning the gift with purchase. If you don't have the gift, you can return item for store credit (even if you have receipt).
