Looking for weekend plans? You might want to add a trip to Ulta to your to-do list. The beauty retailer will be giving out free swag, free salon services, and will be offering an amazing deal on Kylie Cosmetics.
Ulta is hosting its first ever Ulta BeautyFest in-stores on Saturday, Nov. 16 and Sunday, Nov. 17 in all 50 states to kick off the holiday shopping season. All stores will be opening an hour early, and the first 100 guests will receive some freebies. In addition, stores will be offering free salon services, makeup demonstrations, brand giveaways and a secret special offer redeemable next week.
Shoppers will also be invited to enter a two-day sweepstakes for a chance to win a grand prize of a $2,000 store gift card, $500 gift card to spend on beauty services and a $5,000 airline gift card to spend on travel. In addition, 10 other winners will get their holiday shopping paid for in gift cards worth $2,000. All you have to do is take a photo in-store with the Ulta BeautyFest floor decal and share it on Twitter or Instagram with #UltaBeautyFest.
The best part of the sale, however, has to be the deal on Kylie Cosmetics. All of Kylie's color products (excluding skincare), will be 30 percent off. That means that a Kylie Matte Lip Kit, which normally goes for $29, will be on sale for $20. (Our favorite Kylie Matte Lip Kit shades include Koko K, Candy K, Posie K and Mary Jo K.)
The deals are happening exclusively in-store, but if you prefer shopping online, Ulta is currently offering tons of deals there as well, now through Nov. 17:
