Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I am in the exact same situation and I re-rouged months ago. I'm only close to re-platinuming thanks to the point multiplier on Monday, but I had the same thought when I checked my status.

 

The main reason is that Ulta doesn't carry my favorite brands (Bite, NARS, etc). Their mid-range is very limited when you compare it to Sephora.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yes @kso1225 ulta is definatly missing the high end and designer makeup brands. Ulta seems to be more on the capitalistic marketing plan; supply the masses. They carry what is in demand by the largest part of the population. The average person isn't buying YSL, Dior, Marc Jacobs and she may not even know Bite and Nars exist.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I'm close to re-rouging but I re-platinumed months ago. I think it's because, for me, Ulta is more of a place where I can play around and try new things that aren't too expensive - drugstore mascaras, bath products, things like that. I also tend to buy things for my daughters there. Sephora is my place for buying the pricier items that I've researched and am pretty sure I'll love.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@JenniferOhJenny I completely agree

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Everyone is making me feel super guilty!!!! I Rouged a few times over this year.  Still doing better than last year at least. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

This is my statement.

Spend $957 to maintain your VIB Rouge status through 2017

 

I need MAJOR shopping inspo to Rouge '17!  I hope all the SF, Holiday and Hair kits are fabulous! I have close to $500 in Sephora gift cards......so, C'mon!!!

 

After 10x, I am $89 away from making Platinum '17 and already have 3,000 reward points. This is due to Ulta carrying DB this year. I don't really buy much make-up.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I always want to buy from Ulta instead of Sephora, but the Sephora free flash shipping always gets me, and I prefer to only buy one or two small things at a time instead of huge hauls. If Ulta offered a program like the Flash shipping sephora would probably never see my money outside of the brands exclusive to them. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I've noticed this as well. I've hit rouge again but still have about $250 to spend to re platinum. I love ulta's rewards system but I'm a little lazy to surf their website and only shop during sales. I missed the 10x the points and am kind of kicking myself for not shopping just to shop lol. I reasoned that I didn't need to spend money just to earn money to hoard for ulta, when I really should spend that money on my kids for new school gear. 

However....there's a new one about to open up where I frequently shop and there's no Sephora there so that's alllll about to change lol. I'll probably hit platinum just for that reason alone.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I'm opposite. I already hit Platinum before 10x points and spent over $100 more during the event. I am a little over half way to Rouge, so Ulta has more of my money so far this year.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I haven't re-rouged nor are-platinumed. I can say I am close to renewing my platinum status than I am rouging. 

 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@StephaniLynn I think this is truly #goals for me. I don't need the stuff I have/get and hardly even use a tenth (maybe even 100x's less than that) what I have!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@H216 I am just over halfway to rouge. By this time last year I could have requalified 2x. Definitely cut back this year. 

At ulta I'm about $100 away from platinum. I would rather re-platinum than re-rouge lol. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I realized why I haven't re-platinumed...because I've been using my Ulta points to get FREE stuff I ACTUALLY WANT

 

No joke, I'm pretty sure I've actually bought close to $500 dollars worth at Ulta but have truly only spent around $250.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@keepra yeah I'm in the same boat except I'm hoarding my Ulta points. I've got 5k something so plan on doing major damage during the holidays. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Cool brag, though! haha!

 

Ulta totally rules. I hope they don't ever change the reward program.. it's pretty perfect as is.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I want Ulta in Canada Smiley Sad

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

So I went on vacation for 10 days...and forgot my makeup. Smiley Sad Smiley Sad I seriously felt like part of me was missing.

 

The day I left was very hectic and I was running around trying to pack and get out the door quickly and yeah. (The fact that I watched 3 hours of Pretty Little Liars the night before, instead of packing and organizing things, probably didn't help. Smiley Wink)

 

I also couldn't log in to BT! 

 

Thankfully it was a great vacation, so that made up for it Smiley Happy.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@JenniferOhJenny

Nothing trumps going on vacation and forgetting to pack underwear. 😱😅

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh no! I assume you are speaking from personal experience? I usually end up with twice as much underwear as I actually need because I just keep tossing more in my suitcase "just in case"

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@JenniferOhJenny sadly yes, personal experience! 

I normally pack at least 10 pair for just a three day trip lol, but somehow completely managed to forget that time. It was a split trip of sorts, so I had packed two bags. We were flying out of ATL for a 10day cruise, but didn't live near ATL...however, my SIL and BIL did, so we drove over a day early and stayed with them the night before. I had underwear in my overnight bag for their house, but discovered I had no more when we got on the boat. I spent the whole trip washing the two pair I had in the sink and praying they were dry when I needed them. Hahahahahaha fun times 😂

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@RGbrown My husband had to run out  and buy me tampons in a tiny Alaskan town, because I had forgotten to pack my birth control pills and suddenly started my period. On our honeymoon. And the cruise ship shop was closed because we were in port. Fun times indeed!
