Value: Ulta Beauty Break 9/21/16

Back in July I had meant to start tracking the values of Ulta Beauty Breaks but somehow kept forgetting to do so. But the Beauty Break today looked good enough to be tempting.

Becca Backlight Priming Filter Base (0.2 oz), Under Eye Brightening Corrector (0.08 oz), Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal (0.34 oz), Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured in Opal (0.088 oz)

The minimum spend for this Beauty Break is $50. For value calculations, I used the smallest size and biggest size (i.e. the lowest buy-in and the best value) available at Ulta.

  • Backlight Priming Filter Base, 0.2 oz @ $38/1 oz = $7.60
  • Under Eye Brightening Corrector, 0.08 oz @ $30/0.2 oz = $12
  • Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal, 0.34 oz @ $41/1.7 oz = $8.20 or @ $19/0.67 oz = $9.64
  • Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured in Opal, 0.088 oz @ $38/0.19 = $17.60

Total value: $45.40 to $46.84

Right now there’s also a free-with-any-purchase travel size of the Living Proof Timeless Pre-Shampoo Treatment (1 oz @ $26/6 oz = $4.33, or @ $10/2 oz = $5), bringing the total GWP value to $49.73-51.84, so if you hit the minimum spend ($50) exactly, and if you were willing to pay the retail price-per-oz for the GWPs, you’d be getting about 50-51% off.

Becca products are popular and pricey, so this is a good deal, especially if stacked with one of the other current high-value GWP options. But I have to admit, I don’t use highlighters often enough to need two more – it’ll take me a long time to work through what I already have as it is.
