Why It Pays to be an Urban Decay Beauty JunkieOctober 28, 2017
If you love Urban Decay even half as much as I do, you’re going to want to join their top-rated loyalty program!
Did you know that Urban Decay now has two freestanding stores in Canada (one at Square One in Toronto and the other at Metropolis at Metrotown in Burnaby)? I had the pleasure of visiting the Square One location recently and loved the experience! The store itself was absolutely beautiful and everyone working was so friendly and knowledgeable.
But why should you shop at a freestanding store? There are a variety of reasons, actually!
Firstly, I found that because the store only sold Urban Decay everyone was so knowledgeable about the history of the brand, the services they provide in store, as well as about the products. All of my questions were answered and I learned a lot during my visit! That's not to say that employees working at other stores that sell Urban Decay aren't knowledgeable, but they are expected to know about a lot of different brands so you may not always be getting as much information.
Secondly, you can get a variety of services done in the freestanding stores! They offer a full range of services, so there is something for everyone. If you're just looking to have one feature done, they have complimentary services which is really nice! If you're looking for something a bit more, you can book an appointment to have a full face of makeup done. The Standard gets you a basic look that includes complexion, eyes, and lips; whereas The Full Monty is the perfect choice for a special event! It includes a full face of makeup that fits your occasion and also includes lash application and contouring. Lastly, you can book a 90-minute lesson. No matter your experience you can benefit from this! The Makeup Virgin lesson is perfect for those new to makeup and want to learn the basics and the Master the Trade lesson is a personalized tutorial on a specific area of your choosing. I was really impressed by how many different services were offered! I got my makeup done while I was there and left feeling so beautiful! We worked together to choose the products and I learned a lot about each product as they were applied. I also learned some new tips that I have been using at home too!
And, in case you didn’t know, Urban Decay offers the most amazing loyalty program available in their freestanding stores as well as on their website! While other stores have loyalty programs too, the Beauty Junkies program was listed as one of Flare's Top 3 Best Loyalty Programs! There are a variety of reasons to join the Beauty Junkies program: you accumulate points for your purchases which can be used to save you money on future purchases, you get early access to new launches, special offers for members only, exciting promotions, gifts, and more!

Everyone starts out as “Obsessed” and receives a complimentary birthday gift, exclusive invites to Urban Decay events, special access to exclusive and limited edition products, advance notice for new product launches, as well as samples with each purchase! Once you reach 300 points where you move up to “Freak” status. Here you get all the same perks as before as well as receiving free shipping on all orders with no minimum purchase, access to try new products first, last-call access for products that are about to sell out, and exclusive samples with all of your orders!
