ULTA Gifts Worth Giving (Or Keeping)

I’ve got just a few quick tips and special finds for you today, each of them perfect for gift-giving, which is always helpful for birthdays — my family has about eight of them between September and October — as well as for the upcoming holidays.

I’ve often advised that you sign up for emails from your favorite stores, so you get the latest news and greatest buys, and here’s a perfect example of why it’s a good idea: ULTA Beauty sent me a set of coupons and a terrific deal on a huge set of makeup, perfect for gift-giving but also thoroughly tempting for keeping to myself. This is the Color My World 73-piece Collection for only $24.99, also available in a bright pink case (for the younger gift recipients, I’m thinking) which includes… well, look:

This collection is worth at least $200, but ULTA is offering it for $24.99. But wait; why yes, there IS more! Use the discount code “44443“, and the price drops to $19.99 if you order this set before October 23rd. In other words, you get $5 off any purchase of $10 or more, up to $59, with that code.

Also, until October 23, if you spend $60 or more, you can save $10 with code “59201“. If you’ve ever wanted to try Bare Escentuals bareMinerals, now is the time to check it out! Choose one of six skin tones and get a Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Get Started Kit, worth about $174, for only $60 (and you save another $10 with that second code):

I’ve always been crazy for cosmetics kits; just can’t help myself — these turn a daily chore into a fun and artsy opportunity to experiment with color and try different looks — how can I resist? I’ve got three or four people on my list who would enjoy either of these kits (and yes, one of those people is me).

However, perhaps your friends or family would prefer a smaller set, something that can be carried in a handbag or gym bag. If you’re looking for something simple and inexpensive, this exclusive set for ULTA is a shoo-in; the Face Case from Urban Decay Cosmetics give you three eye shadows, three lip glosses and a blush plus a double-tipped applicator brush for only $14 (which drops to just $9 if you use that special code)!
