Warning! This post has an insane amount of photos but trust me when I say that if you love Ulta Beauty as much as I do then you will want to see them all!!
So last Friday I was invited to Ulta Beauty’s Grand Opening in Benton AR!! I have been super pumped about this brand new Ulta because it’s not too far from my house and I got to in early and get the grand tour from the store manager, Lizzi! Y’all. I lean red so much about this store and I can’t wait to be a regular here!! I may or may not have done a little shopping in Friday but I couldn’t help it, I had a 20% off total purchase coupon… #PlatinumPerk baby!!! It pays to shop a lot…HA!
Now let’s get to this gorgeous store!!
Like I said earlier, the Grand Opening complete with ribbon cutting and photos with the mayor went down last Friday. I was so excited to be a part of something cool and meet all of the fabulous employees. They are all super knowledgable and super friendly so if you ever have a question about anything or need a demonstration ask! They are always more that willing to help!!
Don’t they all just look like fun people? They are!!!
Now let’s get to the store itself!! I was super pumped to get my private grand tour and now I can’t wait to share all the fun with you!! Let’s see what makes the Benton store soooo special!!
First this store is one of the first to have a real, live MAC counter!!
MAC is a new brand to Ulta and so having this whole counter right at the front of the store is AMAZE. There are three makeup artists on staff that will give makeovers, tutorials and help teach you all things MAC. I can’t wait to get in there and learn some things!!!
This store also has all of the prestige brands you have come to know and expect as well as a few new to Ulta brands…
…and of course all of the drugstore brands that you know and love!
And let’s not forget Ulta’s brand…Ulta makeup is pretty darn good!! I have a few lip colors from them and am obsessed!
And of course no Ulta would be complete without a hair salon! Who’s ready for a blowout?? I AM!!!
And since the store has a full service hair salon they can offer salon hair products!!
And of course they also offer the best drugstore hair care around!
And let’s not forget about hair tools!! Ulta has every brand of curling iron, straightener and blow dryer around. You can also hold them and even test the blow dryers…because I don’t know about you but I am picky about my blow dryer so being able to hold it and feel it is a huge plus for me.
Ulta also has the best selection of fragrance around. I almost exclusively buy all my perfume at Ulta because I save my points and buy it when I have enough!! Trust me, it doesn’t take long to accumulate enough points when you shop as much as I do! HA!
One of the last things I am going to share with you is maybe the most important!! The Benton Ulta location is one of the first to offer facials in store!! There is a little pod that you go into that is private and just like any other salon you would go to and get a facial at. It is run by estheticians and they use all products. I don’t know about you but I can’t wait to get a facial at Ulta!!
How awesome is that??
And then last, but certainly not least is these little pop ups by the registers. I don’t know abut you but these things always get me!!! I think I am done shopping and then I stand in line by the register, browse these babies and always find something I need. HA!! Impulse shopper much? Yes! HA!
So that, lades and gentlemen, is the brand spanking new Ulta Beauty in Benton Arkansas!! I can’t wait to get my shop on!!!
Are you an Ulta Beauty fan??
Have you shopped at the new Ulta Beauty in Benton??

Ahhh! That looks so amazing! I could stay in there all day. I love all the great stuff they have there. Woo hoo!
Amber Myers says
This is such an amazing store! We have one nearby that I like to pop into. There’s also so much to look at.
Lisa Favre says
The ULTA makeup department looks incredible! Now I totally want to buy all sorts of makeup from them – looks like so much fun to just shop all day.
The store looks a whole lot bigger than I was expecting it. I am nowhere near Benton but we do have a few out here and I think I need to explore it! There’s a lot of things there I didn’t realize were there.
Pam Wattenbarger says
We have an Ulta near us and I just love it! It’s got all the makeup I could ever need, and then some extra, too.
Joely Smith says
Oh my gosh! They have all my favs! I sure hope one opens in my area SOON!
Aduke Schulist says
I haven’t shopped there. I heard Searcy was getting one, but I’m not sure if that was just a rumor or what. I’d love if it we did.

Love Ulta and LOVE LOVE LOVE all the grand opening special. Haven’t visited this location YET but the University and NLR locations are amazing and full of products we love. Wish I could post a pic of the vanity trio I picked up last year with tons of product including eye liners, shadows and lipsticks and gloss.

I am a big fan of Ulta Beauty, but typically make my purchases online. It looks like I need to get into a store because they are chock full of awesomeness! Those makeup applications and lessons are especially tempting.
How fun! Looks like they have a lot of great stuff, I imagine I could really spend hours shopping there! I have been really lazy with my makeup routine and I would love to get some new stuff at Ulta.
The store looks amazing. My daughter loves makeup and I’m sure she can spend hours shopping here. All her favorite brands are there.
Joanna @ Everyday Made Fresh says
I love ULTA! We had a store, and they shut it down to relocate it to a bigger location. Now we are just waiting for them to open it up.
Alicia Taylor says
Ooh! Lucky you! Y’all got an Ulta. When I lived in MN, that’s one of the things I thought I was gonna miss when I moved. I was pleasantly surprised that they had built one back home while I was gone.
Shannon Gurnee says
We have an ULTA about 30 minutes from where we live. Looks like you had a blast at the grand opening!
Chrystal | Nevermore Lane says
I loooooove Ulta. I have to drive almost 45 min to get to one, but its worth it. I wait for the sales, use points, coupons and all their fun stuff and walk away with so much free goodies its unreal. Makes it worth it. They completely remodeled the stores out here. Love it.
Victoria Heckstall says
ULTAmazing! I love to this these. I want to go shopping here and buy get some awesome products.
Wow that is so awesome! Ulta is great!
Drooling over the MAC stand! Looks like an amazing event!
That is wonderful! Evansville, Indiana got their first Ulta a few years ago. Sometimes, it is dangerous for me to go there since I can easily spend at least a $150 if I’m not careful!
Angela Ricardo Bethea says
This Ultra store would definitely be a haven place for makeup lovers alike. With so many items and brands to choose from, one can surely never leave empty handed.
We have Ulta here in our city, but I don’t know if they offer facial already. I hope they’ll offer it soon. I need a facial!
TIm B says
This chain is really taking off! I’ve been seeing all sorts of info about them lately. Not sure if they have any locations by us yet though. I’ll have to ask my wife about that.
Marielle Altenor says
That’s like a makeup lover’s dream right there! I’m so sad that we don’t have a Ulta here in Montreal!
Shaney Vijendranath says
Oh my goodness! This is like heaven! All my favourite brands under one roof – here goes all my savings!
farrah Less G. says
Wow we have Ulta Store newly opened here in East Tennessee. Almost 2 weeks ago if I am not mistaken they have so many sales. This store is heaven for all women out there.
