(Updated) Ulta Love Your Skin Event Day 15 Deals are Live

Here's your daily reminder of all of the deals that you can snag both in-store and online unless otherwise noted.

UPDATE: Thanks to  those of you in the comments below for letting me know that the Lipstick Queen products I mentioned last night are no longer on the Ulta website. I had assumed that this would be a special Hot Buy type of promo when I spotted them on the Ulta website last night, but now I'm not sure what's going on. I'll leave the links up in case them come back though. So sorry about that! There are some new Lipstick Queen Famous Last Words Liquid Lipsticks here and new Lipstick Queen Lipstick Chess Matte Lipsticks and these are being offered at a special introductory price (not the regular retail price) since they are just $10.80 each. That's quite inexpensive for a Lipstick Queen product, as you know! The sizes are full-size when compared to similar Lipstick Queen products, so these are not minis. The Lipstick Chess lipsticks on the Lipstick Queen website, which are the exact same size as the ones at Ulta, are $24 each. I'm guessing this offer will be mentioned in Ulta's email tomorrow but one of the pitfalls of writing these posts the night before is that I don't always know all of the details about their promos until the morning 

SPECIAL NOTE #2: there's a new Drybar deluxe freebie (free with ANY online purchase) and a new discount code below! The Bliss cleanser freebie is now inactive, but you can still get the deluxe UD primer AND the new Drybar deluxe sample free with ANY online order.

PLATINUM MEMBERS: free shipping on all daily Beauty Steals. If you are having an issue with getting free shipping with a Beauty Steal below, please call Ulta customer service and they should be able to credit your account if you are charged shipping. Just be sure to mention the free shipping Platinum Perk notation on the top of this page.

  1. gosh, it's really difficult to stick to a no buy. tempted to pick up a few of the Lipstick Queen products to try

    1. sadly when I tried to check out the site says the lipstick queen items are inactive. i got the tigi s serious conditioner that I've been wanting though, so it's maybe better for me!

  2. I got an email this morning offering a free mini It Brush with any purchase. Worth checking your email for a code if you got it!

  3. Is anyone else unable to find the lipstick queen liquid lipsticks in the website? I tried to click on the link provided, but it won't let me add them to my cart.

  4. The Lipstick Queen items are not active for purchase. You can add them to your bag but you can't check out with them in your bag :-(

  5. I've tried to purchase the Lipstick Queen new products. They say they've been added to my shopping cart, but they're not there when I go to check out.

  6. The pages for the Lipstick Queen lipsticks is now unavailable. I was able to visualize both of them a few minutes ago, but when I tried to add the actual items to my cart, it wouldn't got through. Now both pages have been removed by Ulta :(

  7. At 9:45 am CST the lipstick queen links worked and I picked 2 . At 9:49 am, the links didn't work. Odd. But thank you for your work that you do!! It's probably my fault the links don't work now.... the universe saying "nope! Sorry! She does NOT need any more lip color!"

  8. It says that the lipstick queen lippies are no longer available when I click the link. ��

  9. The lipstick queen links show nothing when you click on it. Maybe it was an error on ulta's side?

  10. Following the links for Lipstick Queen and it says no longer available?

  11. Hey G- Just in case you haven't gotten the heads up already, I also just got an email from Ulta this morning that you can get a free It Cosmetics Mini Airbrush Foundation Brush with any in-store or online purchase.

    Not like I need another foundation brush, but these brushes are so nice- not a bad GWP!

  12. lipstick queen no longer available on the website :(

  13. The Lipstick Queen lipsticks were showing up this morning, but when I clicked it said "Item no longer available". Just checked again and they are not even on the website :/

  14. Thanks so much for the helpful comments, everyone! I'm so sorry that they took down the listings--not sure what happened there! I was plotting an order and fell asleep last night, so I didn't get to place it this morning. I would love to know if any you were able to successsfully order!

    Also, thanks to those of you who shared the tip about the IT brush! I didn't get that promo in my email--congrats to those who did!!
