Ulta Beauty faces PR nightmare

By Gina Acosta - 01/12/2018

Ulta Beauty is under fire after several former and current employees posted allegations on social media that the retailer resells used makeup.

The employees, who worked at Ulta stores across the country, allege that they were ordered to repackage and reshelve unsanitized, returned merchandise, such as lipsticks, foundations, and eye shadows, for new customers to buy.
