Ulta Beauty has over 1,100 locations throughout the United States, but it wasn't until just last year that the retailer brought its unique mix of high-end and drugstore products to Manhattan. It's been years since I first walked through the beauty emporium's glass doors, but seeing how the retailer now rests a short subway ride away from my NYC apartment, I figured I'd reacquaint myself with all the store has to offer.
To ease myself in, I reached out to the brand to inquire about the top-rated makeup items at the store. In the video above, I try a full face of bestselling Ulta Beauty wares, from a $39 full-coverage foundation to an $8 dewy highlighter. Find out which ones are worth your money, above.
