Ulta VS Sephora

Thursday, September 28, 2017

Do you have a favorite between Ulta or Sephora? I have always been the biggest fan of Ulta, probably will for a very long time. I have shopped from both for a few years now and Ulta always has more pros than Sephora has in my opinion. Both have great things that the other doesn't have. 

Ulta Pros:
Reward Points - The best part about Ulta's Reward system is that the points turn into $ toward your purchases! With Platinum you earn more and the rewards do not expire!
Drugstore Products - Not only having Prestige brands, they have majority of drugstore brands in the stores! Get both high-end and you cheaper options in one store! Hair, makeup, skin care, anything!
Salon - Need to find a new place to get your hair done or just a hair cut, they have it!
Benefit Brow Bar - Benefit is known for brows and their brow bar. Well obviously others too, but they have a great place to get your brows waxed or just a place to learn how to perfect your brows.
21 Days of Deals - Either it is for beauty or hair products, this is my favorite times of the year at Ulta! Most deals are 50% off high-end makeup/hair products (will soon do a haul from this past month of the beauty deals).
GWP - Ulta always has a brand that has a gift with purchase for a certain amount spend. Includes all the brands from hair, beauty, skin care, high and low-end.
Nail Polish Endless Choices - From Sally Henson, Revlon to OPI, China Glaze, and Essie. Not any expensive nail polish choice but definitely a great wide range of possibilities.

$3.50 off $15 & 20% coupon - You can never complain about get money off! They always have the $3.50 off nonprestige products & almost 5 times a year roughly they have 20% off everything! With maybe a few exclusions that included newer products.

Sephora Pros:
Samples in Store - If you ask any associate in the store, they will try to give you a sample of a product you are interested in if its possible.
Play! by Sephora - Monthly subscription box that is my favorite! Guaranteed all higher end product samples for only $10! I have discovered many new favorites through this box!
Different Prestige Brands - Ulta is adding more prestige brands every now and then, but Sephora has all the originals and higher end brands.

It comes to show that Ulta is beyond my favorite. I will soon have two posts coming up with hauls from Ulta. One I will show all the items I bought during the September Days of Beauty deals that were amazing and so hard to pass up! The second one coming up will be when I trade in all my reward points (which I'm super close to 2000 points that equal $125!!). I have been saving my points for a while now and they recently have had a lot of 5x points on purchases. Hopefully I will be having that post in November, depending when I reach 2000 points, currently at 1560.

I hope you will come back soon to read those post, also who doesn't love hauls!?
