ULTA has bareMinerals’ Ready Eyeshadow Quads and Duos on sale–50% off–yes, FIFTY, which makes the duos $10 and the quads $15. I don’t know what kind of magic sorcery is going on, but these are amazing eyeshadows. You can see quads here, duos here, and even the summer quad is on sale.  Time to shop for early gifts, LOL!  You can check out the bareMinerals Swatch Gallery (because most of what I’ve swatched are the Ready eyeshadows) if you need a quick reference!

Updated @ 12:00 PM PST: Looks like the sale is over!

  1. Wooo!! Thanks for the heads up, Christine! I’ve been wanting to try these forever, just waiting for the right time (ie – sale)… your swatches make choosing a palette a billion times easier

  3. Kristen

    Oh Christine, you have lived up to your moniker, Temptalia! I just ordered The Happy Place and Epiphany. Love me some warm neutrals and your swatches were key!

    OMG! Thank you so much for posting this! I was JUST looking at The Happy Place quad yesterday and decided not to get it. This just made my week!!

  9. Liz

    OMG. Can’t believe I actually got in on a sale for once! Next Big Thing & Happy Place are on their way! Woo hoo, thanks Christine!

    Man it’s a feeding frenzy.

    The Winner Is Duo sold out while I was trying to buy it and a bunch of the quads that were there before I ordered aren’t there anymore. Picked up The Dream Sequence and The Truth.

  11. Shanna

    Cripes it’s only noon EST and there are only two products left. So much for that lol

  12. Shanna

    Or they’re just not showing up in the sale section. SIGH lol

    I just grabbed Truth and Afterparty, and I thought about more but wasn’t convinced I could make the colors work for me. Didn’t get any duos, though…I’m wondering if I should be regetting that.

  14. kitten

    woohoo grabbed epiphany and the next big thing!

  15. Lisa

    I just wanted to say thanks Christine for letting us know about this sale! I’ve had The Truth quad on my wishlist for a while now but kept telling myself I don’t NEED another neutral palette. But at 50% off, it’s just too good of a deal to pass up! I also purchased The Dream Sequence which has been on my wishlist for a while too. Of course I didn’t notice the “free shipping with any $25 purchase” promo until after I ordered. :/ Oh well.

  16. t_zwiggy

    Thank you so much for posting this! I just ordered all of the quads and 5 of the duos. I absolutely love the formula of these shadows 😀

  17. Farah

    Thank you Christine! I follow your blog daily (multiple times daily lol!). I picked up two quads, Dream Sequence and The Rare Find! So excited about my new goodies!

  18. Janet

    Picked up 3 including the summer quad! Happy, happy, joy, joy!

  19. Joyce Lee

    I wished I live in the US! Prices are 20% marked up in Canada!

  20. Sabriel

    WHAT?! Magic sorcery indeed!

    Thank you!

      While I was deliberating between “The Elements” and “The Dream Sequence,” the price for the quads jumped back up to $30.

      The duos were still $10, and I picked up the “The Scenic Route,” at the sale price, but I think that Ulta may be pulling the sale from the website.

      • I’m wondering if it was a flash sale or not – a reader let me know about it, but then another reader commented here they received an email from ULTA (so I don’t know the timing).

        • Sabriel

          I can check. I get the Ulta emails; I just never read them.

          The email says: “Ends 2/26/13 at Midnight CST or while supplies last.”

          That seems a little disingenuous because Ulta ended the sale before they were actually sold out of everything. :-/ Oh well.

  21. Fortunately, I got the email from Ulta alerting me to this sale, and I was all over it! I got The Happy Place, Elements, and The Next Big Thing quads. Love the formula of these shadows!

  22. Sad

    Looks like the sale is over–right as I went to check out they went back to their original prices :(

  23. Trayceeee

    Went to check out and missed the sale :(

  24. Kati

    A bunch I wanted were sold out as I went to by them, but got Elements and Dream Sequence!

  25. Christen

    Thank the lawd I follow you on twitter as I was doing my daily website checks at 12est I saw your post about 50% off! I was all over that and your swatches helped me decide which ones I chose though a couple did run out of stock while i was deciding I ended up getting the dup in Scenic Route, the Remix quad in the next big thing and a quad in elements. and if you spent so much on the brand they were offering free gifts with purchase so snagged a sample of foundation and mascara!

  26. Monica

    It’s ONLINE ONLY and the Ulta email says ‘SOLD OUT’
    It was supposed to go on until 2/26/13 12AM Midnight CST (while supplies last). That didn’t last too long! lol
    I am bummed I missed out! But they are having this 7 day of Beauty Steals everyday ONLINE ONLY. So hopefully, there will be other brands with amazing steals!

  27. Sharlie Gugel

    I clicked the links and it says they are all no longer available. :(

  28. Damn – missed out! There’s more of the Ready Duos and Quads I would like too! I already have The Truth, The Afterparty, The Last Call, The Escape, The Flashback and The Vision. I would LOVE the Dream Sequence and The Grand Finale. I also like the look of The Epiphany, The Promise and The Enlightenment – I love neutrals lol.
