Spotted: J.Cat Beauty Wonder Lip Paints at Ulta

So the other day on Twitter, reader Lisa of Swatchesandwhatnot blog mentioned to me that she heard that Ulta was starting to sell the J.Cat Beauty Wonder Lip Paints (OCC Lip Tar "dupes") in stores, but not online. As luck would have it, reader Krystle (@MUEnthusiast8 on Twitter) actually spotted these at her Ulta this week and shared some info (and a pic). Take a look!

NOTE: These are the same products that are also now popping up at Harmon stores (click here for my Harmon sightings post).

Krystle confirmed that these retail for $4.99 each at Ulta (same price as the J.Cat site), and that she found them in the promo area of her Ulta store. She also said that the actual display is smaller than the display at Harmon. She said that she purchased all but one shade in the Ulta display (see pic above), which means that there must be around nine shades in the Ulta display since Krystle included all of the shades she purchased in her pic. In other words, the Ulta display is probably about half the size of the Harmon display

After my original post about these, I know that a lot of you were hoping that the Wonder Paints may pop up at other retailers. So I'm really excited about this sighting and I hope that you can find these at your local Ulta if you're looking for them. Again, as of the time of this post, these are NOT available for purchase on the Ulta website--this is an in-store only thing. Hopefully that changes in the future!

Thanks again, Krystle, for the great pic and info (and thanks Lisa, for the initial heads-up!).


  1. I'm happy to hear this. I've been seeing these pop up everywhere (beauty supply stores), so I'm glad the brand is expanding to major retailers. I LOVE the lip paints!

  2. I'm so excited to try these. I hope my Ulta has them soon!

  3. Yes so far I've seen these only at local beauty stores. They are great very pigmented & not sticky for a few dollars highly recommendđź‘Ť

  4. Prestige Beauty Advisor for Ulta here. We don't carry them yet but I am definitely looking forward to when we do.

  5. I found these at my local Ulta today on a display by the registers and picked up both purples, the darker pink and the green. I may end up going back for a few other shades, after I try the ones I picked up. They are $4.99 at my Ulta as well.

  6. I found these at Harmon the other day. I absolutely love the OCC Lip Tar, so was really excited to try a potential dupe at a lower price. I bought Mad Splatter. It is an absolutely gorgeous color and very pigmented, but it is sticky, it moves all over the place, and it has absolutely no staying power. It's gone within the hour. I'm glad it was less expensive, but I really wasn't impressed. It's unfortunate because it really is a gorgeous color.
