This past weekend, I headed to ULTA. I had my daughter along so I knew I had to be laser focused to get in, buy what I needed, and head out (she’s not quite at the age where she can appreciate makeup and hair styling tools, though she does love a good nail polish!). To get a jump on the visit, I clicked onto ULTA’s Holiday Gift Guide while my husband drove. I made a list of what I definitely wanted and included a few items I wanted to look at as possible gift ideas.
Upon arrival, I easily found everything on my list, and then some! I let my daughter pick out some gifts for a couple of friends, her teacher and the yard duty staff at her school. Here’s what we walked out with:
Holiday scented hand cream, lip gloss, fun nail polish and compact mirrors for her friends. These items also make great stocking stuffers!
A gorgeous beauty box for a friend of mine. All the makeup colors she’ll need for 2014! This amazing Beauty Box Blockbuster was priced at only $24.00.
For my step-daughter, I found this great set of Tarte deluxe Maracuja Lipglosses and a chic clutch! Almost tempted to keep for myself!
This Hot Tools 1″ Curling Iron is admittedly for me. I was recently turned on to Hot Tools and love their irons! The handle swivels, the cord is loooong, and the temperature is consistent in the barrel. Plus, it was on sale! Win!
Beauty gifts like balm and hand cream are perfect for the hard working staff at school! They are inexpensive but useful and appreciated! I am a fan of eos and Burt’s Bees so I’m convinced they will like them too!
The Philosophy Season of Sparkle is a special luxury for any woman who likes to soak in the tub or have some quiet time in the shower (Moms, I get it!). The set features White Pear, White Cherry and White Cranberry Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Baths. It’s so much more indulgent than drugstore shower gel!
I couldn’t pass up this gorgeous Urban Decay Vice 2 Shadow Palette. I am a huge fan of UD shadows and this Limited Edition palette will set out. If you love makeup (or know someone that does), get this palette before it’s gone!
A gift card is the final purchase. I am giving it for a complimentary blowout at the ULTA Salon because there are few things better than a freshly blown out head of hair. It’s a fabulous gift to give and receive!
I also stocked up on some lip color while shopping. One can never have too many lip products, am I right?
See? So easy to find the right gift for all the women in your life! Bonus: ULTA even has a great selection of products for the men in your life. One stop. One store. Cross those gifts off your list! If you shop online, there is free shipping on orders over $25. Use code Jingle13.
ULTA Beauty is not just another store for holiday shopping; it’s an exciting wonderland of beauty products that make great gifts, stocking stuffers and personal treats. This year, ULTA is filled with a dazzling variety of holiday treasures that are sure to delight your friends, family, loved ones, and even yourself!
