Our Take: Can Ulta Take On Sephora?

Our Take: Can Ulta Take On Sephora?

Normally we don’t dare touch beauty companies, however coming from both a consumer standpoint and reading this Bloomberg article as a PR piece more than actual news, we just had to join in on the fun.  Last week Bloomberg asked the question: Can America’s Biggest Beauty Retailer Take On Sephora?

“Ask any woman what Ulta is. Chances are she doesn’t know.”

And she most likely won’t want to know with their overpriced products.

Let’s have some fun and compare!
