Free makeup in my mailbox.

Hello beauty junkies! Today we are going to talk about Ulta sending out Free gifts?! Yes you read that right, I said FREE.

It started off as any other day, I went about my errands and came home to check my mail and a little white box from Ulta beauty was waiting for me. I thought it was strange because I hadn’t ordered anything. For such a small box… it sure was heavy. I opened the box to find a sweet note/postcard and a free high end product!

I will insert pictures of the note below but first lets go over what it said. Tarte x Ultamate rewards platinum was the first thing I saw, meaning this gift was because I was a platinum member! The note then goes on to thank me for being a platinum member and saying this was a special treat just for me.

Im sure at this point you’re all wondering what the gift was…… am I right? It was the tarteist pro glow highlight & contour palette. I was in complete and utter shock, or as the beauty community now says “I WAS SHOOK”. Ulta already has an amazing rewards system in my opinion, so the fact that they’re now sending gifts for spending sooo much money is fantastic. If you don’t shop at ulta you’re probably like what makes their rewards system so amazing aka better than sephora (which I still love so hush). Let me tell you a few things about ulta’s rewards program.

  • They give a free birthday gift
  • If you sign up for emails they have promotions where you can get 2x, 3x, or even 5x bonus points on that particular item/brand.
  • Your points turn into MONEY.
  • You have to spend only $450 a year to be platinum, which let’s face it is easy to do when you’re addicted to beauty products.

I think it was very sweet of them to send platinum members such a sweet gift and I thank them. I think more companies should try this approach, it makes the costumer feel appreciated for all of the money we spend. So again I say thank you to Tarte cosmetics and Ulta Beauty.

 

Lorac Unzipped Palette

I know this palette isn’t anywhere near new, but it’s new to me. I’ve been eyeing up this palette for a long time…. my friend even suggested I get it because it’s “so me”. ¬†I hesitated because of the fact that I already had so many palettes so did I really need another one? Once I found out it was going to be a part of ulta’s 21 days of beauty sale I knew I definitely needed another palette!

A few things to note about this palette:

  • total net wt .39oz/11.2g
  • $42 (But you can use ebates to get cash back)

  • Untamed

I am loving these shadows! I personally think that it is worth the $42 price point. The blendability of the shadows, the one swipe pigmentation…what more could you ask for. If you’re into rosy-toned shadows you need to run out and pick this up! (or purchase it online using ebates to get cash back!)
