Ulta GWPs

This thread will be for Ulta GWPs only.  Share ulta promos here.  


Please do NOT post requests for the spreadsheet in this thread.  Please post requests for the Ulta GWP google spread sheet in this thread:


A list of in store coupons is here:


Let's keep this thread on topic!


Ulta points refresher (because yes, it is that complicated):



Item #1 - $53.50

Item #3 - $108.50 (and is eligible for a certain item/brand 5x multiplier)

* There is also a 5x all purchase multiplier and you are platinum so you get 1.25x

Total Spent - $162

Base Points Earned - 162

Platinum .25x Earned - 41 (162 * .25 = 40.5, and rounding up)

5x All Purchases Earned - 648 (it ends up being 4x because you don't count the base points)

5x Item/Brand Earned - 434

Total Points Earned - 1285


Links are not allowed.  In lieu of links, please read this:



Please add product id numbers and sku numbers so people can find items on ulta.  

Just to clarify, there is an item number that Ulta lists on the website, right under the picture of the item.


The product id is the number given to the item in the URL.  So Ulta's site follows this formula of having the url and then the very last part of the url is "productId=xlsImpprod" followed by an 8 digit number.  If you use that "productId" number you can get to the page of any item on ulta. 

It's not a search, but the direct url to the page. 

Click on any product, and then view the url in the address bar.  It will look like this: ulta's website (not using the actual domain because BT admins don't like that) /prep-prime-fix?productId=xlsImpprod15921204  Replace the 8 digit product id of the item you want to see with the id of the product you're looking for.


My very unofficial Ulta point multiplier to approximate percent discount chart:

(This is a number where I use the multiplier to divide by 2000 to see how many dollars I would have to spend in order to redeem a $125 reward.  E.g. 2000 points divided by 1 point multiplier means I have to spend $2000 to get the $125 reward.  Adding how much I had to spend ($2000) + the reward ($125), and then using the reward ($125) to divide the total purchase ($2125), I get a discount of approximately 6% based on the total purchase.  Note: the total purchase is based on the concept that you are spending just enough to reach the next $125 reward and combines the reward value with how much money you had to spend to get that reward.

Re: Ulta GWPs

Oh no - is this only for DIAMOND members? No Platinum?? 


I've got enough points for the $125 reward and it's burning a hole in my pocket. I'm waiting for one of the big platinum bags to use it. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@kittichick It looks like the next Platinum bag should be on Platinum Perks Day in June. At least, that was the case last year Smiley Happy

Re: Ulta GWPs

Well shoot. 


Thank you for responding!


I just don't see myself getting to diamond status. I buy everything i can from Ulta, because rewards,  but they don't carry that many products I use. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

Thank you @ohheyitscindyk ! Don’t know how I can possibly manage more but you know...! As always some goodies in it I would really love. Anyone wanna split?! 😆

Re: Ulta GWPs

@ohheyitscindyk  thanks for sharing! I think I've officially shopped ulta gwps for too long. This does not interest me in the least because I already have every single one of these samples. 😳

Re: Ulta GWPs

Haha, seriously! I have good amount of these products still waiting for me to use them from previous GWP bags. 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@ohheyitscindyk  Wow, thank you!!! I wish this could go live on June 3rd, together with the free diamond gift~

Re: Ulta GWPs

Such an unexpectedly nice boxed Lancome GWP! Usually they’re in a knotted plastic bag - but of course you all know that. 🙂2CA50AA8-761A-423C-9AD4-562580AA3014.jpeg

Re: Ulta GWPs

Two new brands! 





Re: Ulta GWPs

Finally got my order with the Lancome gwp and now I'm extra pissed the gloss wasn't full sized as advertised because omg, I LOVE it! After the super soft gloss wore off it left behind the prettiest stain. @RGbrown wasn't kidding, this gloss is awesome! Grrr at false advertising. Must buy more...

Re: Ulta GWPs


Yay, another convert! They are amazing, aren't they?!


I'm still annoyed by the size as well. Grrrr. But, as a small plus, the Ulta one was twice the size of the one I got from Sephora last year (3ml vs 1.5ml) 😋



Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown so amazing! And, although I'm annoyed it's not a full size, seeing it compared to that teeny Sephora one, I do feel a bit better. I'll certainly get several uses out of it. What other color would you recommend?

Re: Ulta GWPs


(And everyone even slightly interested 😁)


From wrist to elbow. Left column is one coat, right side is two. They are a bit awkward and messy, sorry about that...once I got a few down, I lost a place to rest my shaky hand, and I also apparently lost all sense of "straight line" 😂

134 Be Brilliant

142 Be Brave

168 Rose Rouge

193 Rose Talisman

286 Vertige

315 Energy Shot

321 Be Bright

344 Ultra Rose

356 Rose Fugace

366 Power Rose

378 Be Unique

468 Rose Revolution

490 Not Afraid


A few notes:

Ulta has the description for the first two mixed (I seem to recall Sephora might as well); Be Brave is actually the orangey red.


490 Not Afraid swatches well for me, but I cannot get it to work on my lips. The first coat is patchy, and subsequent coats just get worse. @WinglessOne has great success with it though.


These are designed to be built up; one coat is sheer, but 2-3 gives full opacity. Two is usually enough for me. I apply one, let it dry a bit (I have no patience, maybe 5 seconds lol), then go back a second time.


Lancome is the only place that carries all shades, but it seems they sent every retailer a different selection, so look around. Ulta has most of them (28 of 30), but I'm still watching for a deal somewhere on one more they don't have (188 Only You 😁)


The shimmer in the shimmer shades is subtle, at least in the ones I have (except Vertige; it's pretty shimmery). If you're opposed to shimmer, you'd probably still like them.


I am zero help with the paler shades, but hopefully these help anyone interested in the brighter shades!

Re: Ulta GWPs

@RGbrown  @RandeeJ9  Yep, Not Afraid gives me no trouble at all. In fact, it’s the first L’Absolu Lacquer shade I ever tried: I was at Ulta one day last year, swatched that shade on my hand, and promptly bought a tube. I’ve been buying more shades ever since. 


Vertige is the shade that gives me trouble. For me, it’s patchy and requires some effort to apply evenly. But it’s not annoying enough to make me stop wearing it. 


Nordstrom carries all 30 available shades. Anyone who’s a member of their rewards program can, of course, use notes towards these. Smiley Happy 


Also, if you’re a member of Lancôme’s rewards program, they’ll give you points for all Lancome purchases made outside their site (including Ulta): just upload photos of your receipts. For Ulta purchases, I upload screenshots of my online order invoice. One L’Absolu Lacquer currently costs 2600 points. I’ve got enough points banked to order several of them; I’m saving them in case Lancôme expands the shade range. 😂 


And this reminds me to maybe swatch all of mine for the Deeper Hues swatch thread, so folks can see how these look on a darker skin tone. Though I should really post lip swatches of them all, because my natural lip shade skews a couple of these shades. Also, nice job with the swatches, RGbrown! 

Re: Ulta GWPs

@WinglessOne Thanks for the info about Lancome's reward program!

Re: Ulta GWPs


I totally spaced on Nordstrom having all 30, so thanks for that correction!


" natural lip shade skews a couple of these shades." I'll say! 😂😂😂 I'm still confused about Rose Fugace looking red on you 😋
