Thanks so much to reader ChiChi20 for the tip that today's Beauty Break (available today only, 5/24 while supplies last) is GOOD one!

Today only, spend $75 online and receive this 14-pc Lip Sampler FREE (just add to your cart and once you add at least $75+ worth of other merchandise to your cart it will go from $75 to free).

Sadly, the 24-pc Beauty Bag that was available for the past week has sold out (I just checked and while the listing is still visible here, when you click on it says the page has been removed). I was hoping you could stack both freebies but not the case.

  1. The 24-piece beauty bag went out of stock as I was checking out - so close!

    1. I think they had more bags but didn't want people to get both so the marked the 24-piece bag as sold out. I just placed an order and was able to get the 24-piece bag.

  2. Almost got this and the Limecrime sale tore me away lol. Did you see that yet? They have a 75% off sale, with lipsticks down to $5!

    1. Same here! The Lime crime sale is amazing! The Velvetine matte liquid lipsticks are the best I've tried

  3. 24 piece bag is back now that the lip sampler is sold out.

    1. Oh i hate it when they play these tricky games... Let those who know how to work the system do it!.. i get so frustrated when Ulta 21 days of Beauty has a deal/steal and then its sold out, but the next day when it is back to full price, it magically is back in stock... not right - they should make the deals available to everyone who wants to purchase it.

    2. Aaah, thanks for letting us know that the other beauty bag is back in stock. That's a bummer that they didn't allow it with the lip set, but it's their prerogative as to how many freebies they want to ship with orders.

  4. How did you and ChiChi20 find out that this deal was going to happen? It only showed up on the homepage of Ulta at 11am (East Coast Time) but i was able to read from your blog to anticipate it at around 10:30. Does Ulta leak sales to some people? (super glad you have the following to have people tell you what we should anticipate!)

    1. No special leaks. ChiChi just shot me an email to let me know that it was listed in the regular Gifts with Purchase section of the Ulta site this morning. It was visible to everyone at 7AM Pacific when I got her email. I grabbed the link directly from the site. :)

  5. Multiple shades of Fiona Stiles items just got added to the 75% off offering:)!
    Store shades are very limuted now but the online selection still has a number of choices.

    1. Ooh, more shades? Thank you!! I know they replenished inventory a week or two ago, but happy to hear there's even more now. Thanks, Pinky!!

  6. Thanks for the tip on the Lime Crime sale!
