Ulta is Having a MAC Flash Sale Tomorrow (5/1)


TODAY ONLY (5/1): MAC Lip Palette is 50% off here - $21 (reg $42). Quantities are limited so DO NOT WAIT if you want this one!

Remember: free shipping on orders $35+ right now.

And if you're Platinum, you can also take advantage of these one-day-only Platinum Member Only deals today:


So we all know that MAC is coming to Ulta starting 5/7 (click here for details if you missed my post about that).

But ahead of the official online launch date, Ulta is going to have a special MAC flash sale tomorrow, 5/1, and you can watch the video they posted on Twitter HERE. I've watched this video 3x and I'm still not 100% clear on how this is going to work. But here's what I
THINK is going to happen:

  • At 12PM Central Monday, 5/1, Ulta is going to announce on their Instagram, via a live video, which product will be 50% off. I believe that ONE item from MAC will be 50% off at this time (it's confusing because there are three products shown in the video, but I think just one product will be on sale?).

  • I guessing that this mystery item will be available online only, and I'm guessing that when it's live, it will be on this page.

  • Supplies will be limited, so I will post here as soon as I find out it's live. I don't know if Instagram will be the only way that they will announce this flash sale, so be sure to also check your Ulta emails tomorrow morning.

That's all I know for now. Stay tuned...


  1. Ok! So I will tune in. I hope it's a product I can use.

  2. This is exciting, can't wait to see what the 1/2 price item is. Thanks for posting :D

  3. This is awesome - thanks for the tip! I was hoping that Ulta would do some kind of "one day only, early access" event that they often do for platinum members. I'm so glad that Ulta will be carrying MAC now - I've never bought a dang thing from MAC and I'm looking forward to being able to rack up points.

  4. I'm excited to finally try MAC since I never get to Macy's (and they just closed the one nearest me) but I never was wild about this kind of launch approach, mainly because I'm too lazy and/or forgetful. More opportunities for the devoted, though, eh?

  5. According to their Twitter answers, the flash item will be on Instagram?
