Ulta Haul: Missoula, Montana Grand Opening

Remember when I was so excited for a trip out of town because I could visit makeup stores?

That’s because I live in Missoula, Montana and, up until last weekend, there weren’t a lot of options for buying makeup. Basically cheap drugstores and expensive specialty boutiques.

Well, my dreams have come true: An Ulta in Missoula! They just opened last weekend!

Can you feel how excited I am?

Now I can finally test out the really cool beauty products I want before I buy them. It’s a novel concept, really.

Ulta in Missoula: Grand OpeningThe new Ulta Beauty store just had their grand opening weekend and I couldn’t help going. Twice.

Live in or around Missoula? First of all: Hi! Secondly, here’s the address for the new Ulta so you can check it out yourself:

Ulta Beauty
3275 N Reserve St
Missoula, MT 59808-1527

The people there are really nice. They sell a whole bunch of beauty-related things, including high-end makeup, drugstore makeup (I now have a local place to by NYX!), body products and hair stuff. They even have a salon!

Of course, I had to make a video about the experience, along with showing the cool stuff I got. Check out my Ulta makeup haul video!

Watching the video, you hear about how I heard that the store finally opened, how I felt upon first entering, and why I had to come back a second time.

I went twice, so I got two different bags of goods.

Those are some pretty eye shadows! And, bonus, the Halloween Wipes have almost no scent.

Ulta Haul: Second TripDuring the second trip, I got…

Since getting the Cargo palette on Sunday, I’ve already done a lot of experimenting. Expect a post about it next week!

Do you have makeup stores where you live?

Do you have an Ulta or Sephora in your town? Maybe another big cosmetics store?

If not, then you totally know how excited I am that we finally have an Ulta in Missoula!

Let’s chat about it in the comments!

  1. That is awesome about the Ulta Store and I can feel your excitement on the YouTube video. Looks like you got some really cool stuff. I’m just wondering about prices. When I see a Makeup Store I think things are going to be expensive, were they? Anyhoo, I enjoyed the video and am looking forward to seeing the makeup posts 🙂

    • Hi, Colleen! You can see the prices when you click on the links for each product. I don’t talk about how expensive things are because “expensive” to one person may not be “expensive” to another. Know what I mean? But I can say for sure that I felt like I got some good deals! 😉

  2. That’s great news, I’m excited for you! And great haul. Can’t wait for the reviews!

  3. My mom lives in White Sulphur Springs, MT .. I wonder if she knows that there is now an Ulta in Missoula! Not that WSS is anywhere near Missoula .. lol. I think it’s 1 hr away?
