New ULTA Ad: 6-26 September

4 September, 2009

Alrighty, this is a big, big ad, so let’s take a look at what we have going this time out! We start, actually, with my favourite thing-prestige makeup. Bare Minerals has their all-new matte foundation, complete with a lock/go sifter that makes it truly portable. Each container is $28, and when you buy a BE Matte product, you get a free eco-tote. There is also a new mascara-Flawless Definition Lash-and this is one that I want to try because it’s not only a plastic comb-style brush, but the teeth are very fine. CARGO, meanwhile, has a Must-Have kit for only $30 (worth triple the cost), and it has a bronzer, a Polynesia blush, Vienna eyeshadow duo, and TexasLash mascara in full-sizes. Plus, with a $25 CARGO purchase, you get a deluxe sample of their new LashActivator, which actually lengthens lashes! The thing I like about CARGO is their use of metal tins-totally reusable. Too Faced has their Safari Sexy kit for $34 (a $110 value) with a full size Lava Gloss eyeliner, a Mood Swing lipgloss, Totally Toasted eye duo, and mini sizes of the Pink Leopard bronzer, Lash Injection mascara, Shadow Insurance, and a flatbuki brush, perfect for on-the-go. It also comes packed in a full-size metallic pink tote. Smashbox has their own deals as well-two new ULTA exclusive kits. The first, for $24, is the Private Eyes kit, with a 10-shade creme liner and Brow Tech palette and a full-size Lash DNA. The second, for $47, has a 6-shade shadow palette, a Limitless Long Wear gloss, a half-ounce Photo Finish primer, and a blush/Soft Lights duo. Also, with ANY Smashbox purchase, you get a double-ended brush, worth $30-the 9 (eyeliner) and 12 (angled brow brush).

LORAC has a new Press Release kit for a whopping $20 with full-sizes of the Golden Glow Cheek Stamp, Front Of The Line liquid eyeliner pen in Black, Caffeini Martini Mocktail gloss, and Publicity Stunt lashes. The mascara is one that I admittedly have been dying to try, and $20 for four products? Hell yes. Pur Minerals, meanwhile, has a 1 ounce body butter with any purchase, and Benefit has a free full-size of Miss Popularity with any purchase. Studio Gear has their brand new Prime Objective SPF 20 face primer for $35, and with a purchase of that amount, you get a triple-compartment hanging bag for all your beauty goods. I have so many of those, I ain’t gonna lie. Meanwhile, Sue Devitt has something that I need to get ALL OF-the Hydrating Marine Minerals eye palettes. There are four to choose from-Blue Waters, Green Isles, Serengeti, and Kilimanjaro-and each of them has four colours. They are $37.50 (more than a MAC quad but I don’t care) and you get a free full-size Microquatic eye treatment with a $25 purchase. Bourjois, meanwhile, has a mini Effet 3D Mobile gloss with a two-piece purchase (although by the sound of it it might be any mini item), and Urban Decay is the first stockist of the new 24/7 sets, which apparently are $29 each. Hmm. With a $25 purchase, you get a sample vial of UDPP Sin, sadly not in the genie form. Paula Dorf has a free lip liner with $25 purchase, POP Beauty has a free Eye Magnet or Lip Magnet primer with purchase of the Face Magnet primer, Amazing Cosmetics has a free deluxe travel size of the Velvet Mineral loose powder foundation with Amazing Concealer purchase, Anastasia has a free deluxe Lash Lifting mascara sample with $22 purchase, Elizabeth Arden has a new mineral foundation for $37.50, and Stila has the new Barbie Loves Stila collection. There’s a new brand called Bloom that does these lip stains, and you have your choice of 4 colours at $22 each. You also get a free cosmetic bag with a $20 purchase. Finally, in prestige, Napoleon Perdis (yay!) has the new Prismatic eye quads and the Luminous Lip Veils, and with a $25 purchase you get a free full-size of Long Black Mascara. Additionally, all ULTA Professional is B1G1 Free.Also this time out, we have events galore.

New at ULTA? Philosophy. I swear, ULTA is really getting more and more good brands! I’d love Melon Daquiri to be honest…but I have too much bodycare as is. That brings me to fragrances though. Marc Jacobs has the new Lola fragrance, which I honestly would love-it’s fuschia peony. LOVE IT! Also the bottle is gorgeous as well, with the flower on top. A 1.7 EDP is $65, with the 3.4 EDP being $20 more. D&G has the new Fragrance Anthology of unisex fragrances-#1 (Le Bateleur), #3 (L’Imperatrice), #6 (L’Amoureux), #10 (La Roue de la Fortune), and #18 (La Lune). Each 3.3 EDT is $65. Meanwhile there is a new CK Euphora giftset for $82 with 3.4 sizes of the lotion, bath/shower creme, and EDP, along with a tote bag, and there’s a DKNY Be Delicious set for $38 with mini EDP’s of the original and the Red. Now the only thing is that these are NOT sprays, and I honestly have a lot of trouble with the non-spray ones. It is a good value if you can get them open, because I would honestly pour the contents into an atomizer and call it a day. There is also still the Juicy two pack that I need to get before too much longer.

Onto haircare! All Redken, Rusk, Sexy Hair, Alterna, Graham Webb, Back to Basics, CHI/Biosilk liquids, and their stuff pour homme (American Crew, Men:u, Woody’s, Redken For Men, TIGI B for Men, and Matrix Men) are B2G1 free. There is also a coupon for a $30 Signature Cut (shampoo, cut, style…now I may be old school, but I assume that a style is included in the haircut) as well as $75 off a Keratin smoothing treatment. Backtracking for a moment, all Essie is B2G1 free also. Paul Mitchell duos are $22, with Tea Tree duos being $23. Nioxin trios are $45, the Bed Head Cool Couple duo (biggie After Party and Manipulator) are $19.50, the Joico K-Pak Reconstructor duo is $27 (with the colour therapy trio being $15), and a Kenra duo is $18 (platinum finishing spray and a mini Texturizing Taffy). Nick Chavez has a free duo of 2-ouncers-thickening shampoo and leave-in thickening creme-when you buy the 10 ounce can of his Extra Hold Volume Spray. Meanwhile, when you buy Phyto, you get a free blow dryer bag with a two-item purchase.

Exciting to me? Frederic Fekkai Advanced. There is Advanced Volume, I know. There is also Advanced Glossing, at unbelievably the same prices as the original items! With any Advanced Brilliant Glossing purchase, you get a free 1.7 size of the Glossing Spray, one of my favourite products (if only I can find it).

Selected Marc Anthony and Nexxus prepacks are $7.99 ($15.98 and $12.98 values, respectively), while selected hair stuff (Clairol colour, Tresemme, Got2B, Organix, Lacoupe, FX, and Salon Grafix) are B1G1 50% off. All Clean/Clear, Cetaphil, Acne Free, Olay, Neutrogena, and Sudden Change skincare items are 15% off. Additionally, with purchase of the Sudden Change undereye firming serum you get a free Green Tea facial peel. All Garnier Fructis is $3, while all Borghese (the new Bella Donna Bliss colours come packed with a top coat), Rimmel, Neutrogena, Revlon, Physician’s Formula, Maybelline, Almay, and Garnier Nutritioniste (skincare) are B1G1 50% off INCLUDING bonus packs, while Sally Hansen nail colour, treatment, and the Carmindy line, Cover Girl, Nicole by OPI, Japonesque, ULTA beauty tools/implements, Bonne Bell, NYC, and NYX are also B1G1 50% off.

Into ULTA Brand stuff, the new Get The Look Mineral Kit is $15 (in your choice of nude eye or smokey eye), with four shadows and two brushes. The new Into The Wild colour palette is also $15, and there are savings galore. ULTA Brand nail polish, lip liner, eyeliner, shampoo, conditioner, and 3 oz shower gel/lotion are $2. Lipgloss, lipstick, cheek colour, eyeshadow, mineral concealer, hair glaze, and suncare/sunless tanning are $4. The usual ULTA Bath items, as well as mascaras, styling products, eye quads, mineral eyeshadow, and lip plumpers are $6 (two new ULTA Bath scents: Pumpkin Spice and Baked Apple), and selected brushes and minerals are $8. All Smoothies as well as shampoo and conditioner liters are $10, and for the fall we have three new Smoothies: Caramel Corn, S’Mores, and Cider Donut.

Now onto skincare! (Told you this was a long ad-I’m only 2/3 of the way through!) H20 Plus has the new Intensive Hydrator for $40, with a free .33 ounce sample of the hydrator with any purchase. Ahava has a duo of 24 ounce body lotion (in a pump bottle…yay) with a 3.4 hand cream for $40, and you get a free 10 mL sample of the hand cream with any Ahava purchase. All Earth Theraputics and Vitabath are 25% off, while all Yankee Candle tumblers are 2/$20.

StriVectin has the $135 travel trio, plus a free one-ouncer with a $90 purchase.

Meanwhile Dermablend has a Cover Creme Perfection kit for $26, with two shades of Cover Creme, setting powder, a mini kabuki brush, and a foundation spatula, all in a faux-alligator bag.

There’s a brand new Clarisonic kit for$225 with the brush, 3 trial face washes, a trial skin polish, the charging cradle, and a couple brush heads. I so want the Clarisonic brush because my skin needs a good scrub more than anything, and because of how much makeup I wear… Kinerase has a new Sun Damage Reversal kit (cleanser and then day and night creams) for $100 (admittedly, I need that), and DDF has new acne products for $42 each, with a free Wrinkle Resist/Pore Minimizer with purchase.
