If you have to buy it, get the best deal!
A Hot Buy is a discounted item up to 50% off at Ulta Beauty. Most Hot Buys are 50% off with a few outliers available for less than 50% off and a few available for more than 50% off. I wanted to go over the Hot Buys that pop-up outside an event that are available to any Ulta Beauty customer. The Hot Buys that coincide with an event are not below. They will always get mentioned in their respective articles, like Love Your Skin, 21 Days of Beauty, or Gorgeous Hair. Hot buys that are exclusive perks to Platinum members or Diamond members will appear in their respective articles as well. A separate article exists for deeply discounted items that are not labeled as Hot Buys when I see them. Any time I see a Hot Buy until the end of the year, I will list it. If I know an end date, it is below. Some items are while supplies last and do not mention a specific end date. Unless otherwise specified, all offers are available in-store and online. All offers are in reverse chronological order.
