Ulta hasn’t quite gotten my memo about how I hate unicorns and I wish death to all unicorns on the planet. The makeup world has ruined all things unicorn for me (especially you Tarte! You’re the most guilty of all for ruining all the things unicorn for me! Sneer!)! Legend is ruined for me! RUINED! I’m on Darkness’s side! Kill the unicorns!
Anyway, Ulta hasn’t obviously has not read my memo on unicorns and has been trying to convince me to dye my hair with Lime Crime Unicorn Hair Semi-Permanent Hair Color Tint for the past year. I dunno why, I dunno how, I don’t understand, I don’t get it but I have gotten at least five free samples of Lime Crime Unicorn Hair Semi-Permanent Hair Color Tint in the past year with my Ulta online orders.
But the most insulting thing of all is my most recent order when Ulta shipped me a sample of Lime Crime Unicorn Hair Semi-Permanent Hair Color Tint.
Yes, you read that right.
Here’s the deal.
I spent a good deal of money at Ulta last month on some gifts, essentials for myself, and some new items I wanted to review on the blog. Within a day I got a shipping notice from UPS about it arriving within the next two days. Ulta has been rocking shipping lately. I live in New York and I get packages within three days or so. It’s pretty fast.
Now lately, I find Ulta shipping a little annoying as they do this “Part of your order” has shipped BS. This never happened before and I don’t know what is going on. Maybe they have different warehouses they ship from but the fact is, it’s sort of annoying not to get my order in one box. But I get I have to just go with the flow. So, that initial shipping notice said that part of my order shipped and within a day I got another notice that the rest of it was arriving soon too. I didn’t really check to see what had shipped I was just like, “Ohhh yeahhh time to stalk the mailman!”
I got one of the typical rectangle medium size boxes that Ulta favors shipping in within four days of my order. It was really light and I was a little disappointment! I figured it was a lipgloss I ordered and I was like, “Wow waste of packaging!”
I soon realized they had shipped my entire order out in one box but they shipped a sample, A SAMPLE, as in A FREE sample of Lime Crime Unicorn Hair Semi-Permanent Hair Color Tint in a separate box! Talk about a waste of shipping fees (on them thankfully and not on my dollar) and packaging! I swear they are dying for me to dye my hair!
Guys, what in the freak is happening over there? Ok, in their defense maybe this had to go ground or something because it was a fire hazard?!?! I’m trying to give them the benefit of the doubt here but I think someone really needs to speak to the shipping department because they have to be losing money by shipping a sample of hair dye in a big old box.
Insert my eyes rolling into the back of my head right here.
And that’s my crazy packaging story of the day! Feel free to share yours!
