U is for...

Ulta. Yesterday, I paid homage to Target. Today, I pay homage to Ulta, the ultimate beauty store. I'm a total make-up geek. Have been since I was little, as I mentioned in a previous post. Nowadays, we can purchase make-up, hair products, and just about any beauty stuff imaginable at almost any major retailer. Even the dollar store.

However, no other retailer smacks girly-freaking-heaven when you walk through the front door than Ulta. Some chick will always say, "Hi! Welcome to Ulta!" And, of course, you're all, "Thanks!" because, oh my goodness, the new Urban Decay eyeshadow palette displayed front and center just said, "Look at my new fantastic shades wrapped up in kick-ass packaging!" and you're now officially so excited, the old ticker's kicked into overdrive. So much to take in at once!

They carry everything from prestige to drugstore cosmetics, not to mention hair products and tools, skincare, and a full-blown salon at the rear. Oh, and they will always have whatever's new first. Which, when you're crazy about the latest trends in make-up like I am, is a very, very good thing.

For you guys out there, the only thing I can compare it to is maybe Best Buy or the comic book store. When The Hubby walks into BB, he all but jumps up and down like a 5 yr old in a candy shop. And we go up and down every aisle, regardless if we actually need a jump drive or a television series dvd or a new stereo system. But I can't blame him, because that's what I'm like in an Ulta. I mean, what if I miss something? Oh, heck, no.

Any place make your heart go pitter-patter? Don't worry, I won't tell. ;)

I geek out at thrift stores, Target, and Ikea like this. I am not much of a make up geek, but I must say, I do enjoy Ulta. It just reeks of the possibility of pretty.

Ikea. I love the place so much, I will have a date night there with my husband...without buying anything, just to walk around!

We don't have an Ulta in my area *cries*.
But we do have Sephora, not as great, but it works.
