I'm sure you'd like to know when the new NYX lip colors will be available at Ulta, and I wish I could tell you. Hopefully soon! I'm guessing that the new highlighters will pop up in store soon (probably within the next few weeks). If you spot any of these new products at your local Ulta, I would love to hear from you!


  1. I think NYX is trying to dupe the new MAC lipstick collection. I tried on the MAC lipstick in Dew and while I love the color, I think I'm too old to rock that shade of blue.

  2. I'm probably going to buy Charmed lipstick because it's a good shade and reminds me of the tv show. Has anyone found swatches of the Bright Idea sticks?

  3. so excited for the highlighter sticks - there has got to be a good dupe for benefit's Watts up in that huge color selection!

  4. Ulta changed the minimum purchase requirement on the $3.50 off coupons. Now you have to spend $15 instead of $10 in order for the coupon to be applied.

    1. I'm so sorry if you've missed all of my previous posts about this (I should really do another one because this keeps coming up). The code in my post if an ONLINE ONLY code and it is for $3.50 off $10. Several months ago, Ulta changed the codes they list on their homepage, yes. Those codes can be used in-store and online for $3.50 off $15. But the code in my post is completely different code and gets you $3.50 off $10 for online purchases only.

  5. It's nice to see the variety of shades for the highlighters. Usually there are three, maybe two shades for a brand's highlighters and it might not cover every skin tone.

  6. I know here in NYC they sell a lot of NYX products in the beauty supply stores, I wonder if they sell the new highlighters?
