Do any of you have an Ulta by you? It's basically like Sephora but they carry the "drugstore" cosmetic brands like Revlon, L'Oreal, Maybelline and the like as well as the more expensive brands like Arden, Bare Minerals, Joey and their own brand (called Ulta of course). They also carry all sorts of haircare (the salon brands like Redken, Matrix, Biolage, TIGI), skincare, fragences, nail stuff (OPI, Essie, etc.)... they even have a salon in the back!
I went to the one in Tampa yesterday and I spent maybe an hour in there looking at everything. If you have an Ulta in your area but no Sephora, this is a great alternative. We have a Sephora opening in Tampa at the end of the month. I'm going to go broke between these 2 stores! LOL!
