New Ulta Clearance Sightings!

Heads up, Ulta shoppers! There are some FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC deals now surfacing at Ulta stores, and I've got a ton of them to share with you today.

PLEASE READ: Ulta clearance markdowns can vary from store to store, and they are often in-store only (not online). The markdowns may also occur at different times, meaning you may not see these now, but if you check back in a week, they could be there. Also, as with ANY clearance sale I post about,  if you don't see these markdowns at your store, you can take some of these items to the register and ask a sales associate if they will scan them for you. They might come up on clearance in the system, even if there is no clearance price tag visible. Reader @vicky_x0x0 on Instagram just told me today that she did this with something that was spotted on clearance and the price came up on clearance in the system, even though there were no clearance price tags on the item.

ALSO: Reader @vicky_x0x0 also told me that the 20% off Ulta coupon worked on one of the clearance items she purchased. So it never hurts to try and use that coupon--you may be able get and additional 20% off the clearance price of an item!

On to the sightings...

Thanks so much, Brooke, Allison, Rebecca and Jennifer, for the great tips and sightings. I really appreciate it!


  1. I purchased cute totes for 0.47 and 0.97, Laura Geller Glow and Behold Collection for $4.97, NYX Revenge for $6.97 (but I returned it because it wasn't pigmented), Revlon Skinlights Bronze Beach LE for $6.97. Their clearance section was massive!

  2. I got the deluxe size Bare Minerals foundation (the one that came out around the holidays) for $9.97. I am thinking about going back today to get another one!!

  3. Bummed I'm not going to be able to go until tomorrow. Hope they still have some goodies!

  4. Found a travel size too faced mascara for $2.97 and one of the holiday collection OPI nail polishes for $0.97! It wasn't marked but did ring up that way at checkout!

  5. I swear I can never find any deals. What section of the store do people find these!

    1. I sometimes find clearance prestige nail polish in the nail polish section. Otherwise, my store has it in the drugstore brand section near the lotions or brushes

  6. My ulta normally always has a decent clearance section but they literally had nothing like im talking not a single item! So disappointed

  7. I got badger lip balm for a penny!

  8. Thanks for the heads up on this - I scored a handful of full sized China Glaze polishes for $.97 each. Also a Tigi Beadhead ceramic ion curling iron, normally $30, for $6.40. (It was marked to $8 and I was able to use the 20% off coupon as well!) Some items rang up even cheaper than marked ($.47 for travel shampoos/conds marked $.97) and some items rang up more than marked (the curling iron, but I showed her the tag and she adjusted the price) so keep an eye on the register!

  9. On Saturday I got a margarita body spray for $.47 and a silicone clutch for $.47. It really depends on what Ulta store you go to. There's only one store in my area that ever has clearance stuff left and it's 45 minutes from me.I rarely go there but for this kind of possible haul it's worth the voyage!

  10. Too bad the cheap polishes at my Ulta weren't very pretty.

  11. My friend and I found some rare but amazing deals in the Ulta at Regency Square in Brandon, FL. She scored a Coolway System,a low-temperature flatiron and a spray-on styling mist originally marked a $149.99 for $19.99 plus she was able to use the 20% off coupon from this week circular. Me, I got a travel size Purology Colour Stylist Radiance Amplifier (was $7.00, now $1.97) and Infiniti Pro by Conair Curl Evolution, an auto-rotating hair clamp, that was $59.99, now $19.99 and the 20% off coupon worked as well. There were lots of nail polishes, hair ties and accessories, xmas scents and lotions, and more that I was unable to see because the girls were coming with more carts full of mark down goodies. It was a happy shopping day for us!

  12. I asked the sales clerk where the clearance section was when I arrived. There were two. A lot of items were picked over (I went late afternoon) but the things I was impressed to find were some fabulous Orly minis...

  13. (contd) rose gold "Rage," gold "Luxe," some neon shades, a sparkly red for 1.97 and I bought an Alicia Silverstone for Juice Beauty moisturizer. Was $36 I got it for $3.97.

  14. I just found your blog a couple weeks ago, but I'm already IN LOVE! The information is amazing! I'm already a huge Ulta fan, so I made a trip yesterday to look at the clearance. I found a big bag of goodies! Just like a lot of others, my store didn't have everything marked. Most of the clearance was cheaper than it was marked!

  15. I saw a Cargo palette for $8. But I can't remember what the name of the palette was? I'm regretting not getting it and may go back tomorrow!

  16. my store had almost nothing. only one small tower with mostly ulta brand bath stuff. just picked up one packet of sally hansen nail strips for 99 cents. there was only one left.

  17. My Ulta here in Tampa had nothing. They had a small table with a few things but it was just junk. The store is in the middle of renovations, so that might be why. Oh well... Guess I really didn't need anything anyway.

  18. Among other clearance items, I found some great nail polishes for $1.97! There was Orly, Zoya, China Glaze, and OPI. I grabbed some Zoya polishes from the LE Fall 2013 PixieDust collection (Chita, Sunshine, Dhara) as well as Orly's Beautiful Disaster. And, I was able to use the $3.50 off of a $10 purchase (I got a couple other things) coupon even though they were on clearance! The other clearance stuff wasn't really impressive at my store, but the polish selection was great!

  19. I wish this was still updated! They hide the super clearance stuff at my Ulta and I just found it and would love to contribute to this. :(
