Re: BEAUTY NEWS

LOL @txcatx! Yes I don't think the average BTer is Ulta's average beauty shopper. We're a bit farther down the beauty rabbit hole Smiley Tongue

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

I have 4 flat irons!  LOL!  But I have one in my desk at work, one for daily use at home, a backup (in case mine goes on the fritz or I leave it at a hotel or something) and one for guests in the guest bathroom.  Oh, and my daughter has 2...  Yeah - I definitely don't think we're average... 😊

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

Not being average is a good thing @Tamara76 Smiley Very Happy No need to justify our awesomeness to Ulta! 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

@txcatx Yeah that 11 lipsticks made me laugh out loud. I have more than 50 red lipsticks alone. I'm not sure if I should be proud or ashamed Smiley Very Happy

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

Proud @pixiedust2, you should be proud Smiley Very Happy

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

@Mcakes Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy That cracked me up! Ok, I'm owning it!

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

Nothing's wrong with you.  I would say you haven't come across that one thing item/store experience/perk/something that truly grasps your attention.  At the rate Ulta is moving I can see this changing 😉

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

You are probably right @ElleElleG! I mean heck, if I won their 100,000 point sweepstakes I'd be a total Ulta convert... I think Smiley Tongue

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

I know most people here love Ulta, so please don't throw rocks at me, but I can't stand it. The first time I literally put one foot in the store, a SA was rude to me so I just turned around and never went back. I admit it, my name is DaintyDiva and I'll hold a grudge till the End of Days. When I started participating on BT I saw all their nice GWP and decided to try my luck on their website, but it was so weird to navigate I gave up. I know I may be missing, but I sincerely feel I'm not the public they care to cater for.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

I agree (and I also hold grudges like nobody's business Smiley Wink), though I did do a lot of shopping there last year. I hate their website but I dislike the store more, so. Basically I use them for the 20% coupons and reward points. I've definitely moved away from jumping at every GWP bag they have.

 

Shopping at Sephora is just so much more of a treat/little luxury for me, especially in the store. 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

@DaintyDiva  I agree - They had awful service in the past!  It has gotten 1,000 percent better at my local stores over the past year.  I suspect the current CEO made a lot of changes....

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

In Canada we have Sephora, and I'm guessing Shoppers would be the closest thing to 
Ulta as it does a small amount of high end and also drug store. If Canada had Ulta I'd move much of my purchasing there away from Sephora - simply because of the fab rewards system they have

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

This is a very interesting article!  Thanks for sharing!  @pixiedust2

 

I found the line about Ulta staff being "super approachable"quite interesting as most feedback I've seen here and other sites has actually been opposite of that.  In my experience, I have found that their in store CS has gotten 1,000 times better in the last year.  I've had some pretty awful experiences in the past (I'm talking "cashier so busy texting that she totally ignored the ever growing line at the check-out" level awful and CS agents on the floor who didn't even know what brands they carried or who were too busy chatting to help me), but lately, the experience has done a full 180.

 

I don't shop at Ulta exclusively for brands (except Skyn Iceland) because I can get everything else at other places I shop.  I shop at Ulta for the Rewards, the plethora of GWPs, the BOGO deals (especially on Paul Mitchell!) and the 20% off coupons.  I often get more for my money there.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

tamara76.  I love that the twenty percent coupons come out often enough that I don't have to wait long for a sale,  and the plethora of GWPs does t hurt either. ;-)

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

I haven't been in their stores in the past couple of months because their bad customer service has turned me off but your words give me hope!

 

I would be interested in their version of an online community. Always interesting to see the other side so to speak. 

 

As @txcatx said. The ones with five makeup brushes lol. 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

I just had another thought:  What would happen if Ulta introduced a community forum like BT?

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

I wonder if that community would be full of the average customer who owns two flatirons and five makeup brushes? 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

LOL!  Good point!  We wouldn't fit in! Oh well... 😊  @txcatx

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

LMAO @txcatx

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

I was just thinking... it's no wonder Ulta has been climbing... I feel like Sephora has been going downhill. I know I sound like a broken record but BT is a gold mine of info... anyone in marketing should recognize it's value. Any company would love this perma focus group. Just a few things I've noticed over the last few years or so... might be more but this is what comes to mind.

 

Not living up to Rouge promises
No real difference between VIB and Rouge
Changed the return policy
Point perks increased in points
Lack of promos
Lack of Rouge promos
Lack of Rouge event in the US
Lack of stock in Canada
No sale on sale
No more BI/VIB/Rouge cards
Concentration on the app
Inconsistent CS
Point perks that you can get for free (makeover)
 
It's no wonder people are frustrated and shopping elsewhere.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

I hide my rouge card in my jewelry box so I don't ever lose it.  I know everything is digital now but the red card is so pretty.
