Ulta Beauty Opening in Warrenton

A new Ulta Beauty opened in Warrenton on Saturday February 19, replacing the previous Sears. Ulta is a widely known retail beauty product seller that offers makeup, skincare, fragrance, and bath and body products.

The previous closest Ulta Beauty was located in Manassas. Sophomore Isabella Galvan is happy for a closer store, as “it was a huge hassle to drive half an hour just to buy makeup.” Senior Jenna Mooney is also glad about the recent change. “The Ulta was a great addition to Warrenton. I feel like we needed something new and different compared to the other stores,” said Mooney.

Some students hope to expand their knowledge beyond just makeup. Galvan hopes to take this new addition as a chance to “get more into skin-care and develop a better skin care routine now that higher quality products are more available to me.”

The new Ulta is attracting those experienced in the world of beauty and newcomers. Senior Madi Austin is looking forward to this new learning opportunity. “I have always liked makeup, but I think that the new Ulta will allow me to explore new products that I haven’t used before. They also have a lot of hair care products that I want to try,” said Austin.
