PSA: One-day flash sale at Ulta

I don't tend to blog much about one-day sales, because I'm not organized enough, but this one popped up in today's promotional emails, and it's really pretty good.

In case you don't already own all the eyeshadow in the world, the Urban Decay Vice Ltd Reloaded palette is on sale.

Sheet masks are buy two / get one free. 

Real Techniques brushes are on sale

The one on the bottom with the gold handle is a blush brush, and I use mine all the time.

If you like Philosophy products, this is a good deal

Further inducements to think about shopping at Ulta

  • Recent new-to-Ulta brands include Estee Lauder, Julep, Lancôme, Shiseido, and Stila. I, for one, am thrilled to discover another source of Shiseido's amazing facial cotton, and don't think I'm not excited over the possibility of building up points that will actually do something for me when I pop for my expensive Estee Lauder moisturizer.
  • Ulta offers so many gifts-with-purchase and deals that it's hard to keep them all straight, and I certainly don't want to bore everyone by listing them here. Check out the eBates Ulta info for details.
  • Unlike Sephora's VIB program, (which IMO is a big meh) Ulta's perks program gives you cash back.
  • Free shipping with a $35 purchase
  • And yes, I advocate using eBates, which is currently offering a 3 percent rebate.


  1. I have been so tempted by the Shiseido facial cotton but have never bitten the bullet. Worth it, eh?

    1. Definitely! I first bought it to meet a minimum purchase requirement, and now I'm hooked. It's very different from American cotton pads. It's easy to separate it into thinner and thicker amounts, so you can adjust the amount of cotton you use. For toners I use a really thin piece, but for removing nail polish, I use a thick chunk of cotton and get off all my polish with one cotton pad.
