Hello again, friends!
It’s that time again-the bi-annual Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Sale is here and I am sharing my top picks for each day of the sale. I take advantage of this sale every season and save so much money on high end skincare and makeup. I will also share in this post my tips for securing your deals.
Sept 4th: Buxom Lip Liner $8.50
This is a great dual purpose product that can be used as a straight lip liner or you can fill in your lips completely and add some lip balm to transform it into a full on long lasting lip color.
Sept 5th: Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel $7
This is one of my all time favorite cleansers and it is great for all skin types. I highly recommend it!
PUR Primers- $16.50
This is a new item I have never tried but I have heard great things about this brand and this is sale is a great way to try new products for 1/2 the price.
Sept 6th: Skyn Iceland Eye Gels- $7.50
These under eye gels are perfect for a special occasion, traveling, days when allergies may have caused puffy eyes, or any day that your eyes need a little extra care. You get 4 sets for only $7.50 so this is a great deal!
Sept 7th: Too Faced Eyeliner Pen $10
I am a huge fan of all things Too Faced so this would be a great way to try another of their amazing products for 1/2 the price. This eyeliner pen looks easy to use too!
Exuviance Skincare Set $40
Now, this is one of the more pricey deals. These types of skincare deals are perfect if you are actively searching for a new skincare regime and want an opportunity to try it out at 1/2 price BUT if you are not prepared to pay full price after you use up this kit then I would not waste your time. (and ultimately money)
Sept 8th: Urban Decay Naked Flushed- $17
I have seen this exact product on the sale section of Sephora and I missed the chance to buy it so I am excited to have the chance again. I LOVE multipurpose palettes and I often think way outside the palette with these types of products. You can use any of the shades for eyeshadows, making it great for travel!
Sept 9th: Benefit Roller Lash $12
This is a cult favorite from Benefit and I have seen a lot of great reviews. The Benefit They’re Real mascara is one of my all time favorites so I might give this one a chance too! This sale in general is a great way to get high end mascara without the usual price tag.
Sept 10th: Tarte pen eyeliner $10
This is another great opportunity to snag a high end eyeliner for 1/2 the price.
NARS Cheek Studio Palette $27.50
I will not recommend many online only deals because you will have to pay for shipping but you get so many products within this palette that is now 1/2 off! Just like the other UD palette you can use all of these shades for eyeshadows and the deepest shade could even be used as a subtle eyeliner.
Sept 11th: Too Faced Shadow Insurance $10
Yes, another cult favorite available at 1/2 price! Woo-hoo!
Sept 12th: I don’t have any recommendation for this day. All of these deals I could live without.
BUT, if any of these items are your must haves then snag them up on this day!
Sept 13th: Dermablend Setting Powder $13.50
The Dermablend brand is very high quality and this setting powder is supposed to be one of the best for setting high coverage foundation. I have not tried it but at 1/2 price if you are in the market for a new setting powder you might give this one a try.
Smashbox Primer and Mascara Duo $10
I purchased a Smashbox mascara during one of these sales and I really liked it so I am excited to try this mascara deal. For $10 you get the primer AND mascara which is a drugstore price for a high end item. Yes, please!
Sept 14: None of these deals really catch my eye. I really wish the Urban Decay concealer was available in regular shades because I would be all over that! The Juice beauty kit looks like it could be a promising deal but again, only if you are prepared to pay regular price once this kit is finished.
Sept 15th: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder- $11.50
I am SO excited for this deal because it is again another cult beauty fave! I hear this powder duo lasts a long time too, making it a particularly good deal.
Sept 16th: It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation $17.50
It Cosmetics Brush $12
If you are a huge It Cosmetics fan like I am this will be a great day of deals for you. I am actually still working through the It Cosmetics foundation I purchased for 1/2 price during the Spring 21 Days of Beauty Sale so I won’t be purchasing these….at least I don’t think. 😉 It Cosmetics is a very high quality brand so if you have the chance to try any of their products I highly recommend them.
Sept 17th: I am not thrilled by any of the deals on this day.
Sept 18th: Stila Huge Extreme Mascara $11.50
Another great opportunity to snag a high end mascara at a almost drugstore price!
Sept 19th: Lorac Eyeliners $10
I have heard good things about Lorac eyeliners and this deal is valid on both pencil and liquid eyeliners!
Sept 20th: Mac Lipsticks $8.75
I have only recently heard that Ulta would start carrying MAC Cosmetics. If you are a MAC lover, then this deal will surely excite you!
Sept 21st: I’m not really excited by any of these deals but check them out to see if there is something you like!
Sept 22nd: Tarte Lash Paint Mascara $10
Wow, there are seriously so many amazing mascara deals during this sale. You could really stock up and be set until the next sale. I love the Tarte brand and the brush on this mascara looks very similar to the Benefit They’re Real so, this is going on my list!
Mario Badescu Vitamin C serum $22.50
You can never go wrong with investing in a good Vitamin C serum and I trust this brand for any skincare needs.
I have not tried the Benefit Ka-BROW product but if this is a staple in your beauty routine, pick it up on this day for a great deal!
Quick Tips & Information!
- If possible, arrive as soon as the store opens because these deals can run out fast! I will be going to Ulta on my lunch hour for a couple of the deals to make sure I secure my item. Check your local store hours because hours can vary by location. If your lunch hour is flexible then I suggest planning it around the opening time of your nearest Ulta.
- There is a 2 item limit per customer so you can buy 1 for now and 1 for back-up. If there is a product you really want more of then you can ask a friend (or willing spouse/boyfriend) to purchase one and you pay them for it.
- If you’re going to purchase something online from the deal, ask around to see if any of your friends want to place an order together so you can split shipping.
- If you’re store is far away, call ahead to make sure they still have some of your item available before you leave your work/house.
- Clean out your makeup stash before shopping this sale. See which items are expired and can be replaced for 1/2 the regular price!
- Share with a friend to get an even better deal. While some of these items cannot be shared for obvious hygiene reasons; items like loose powders, cleansers, serums, eye gel pads, and other liquid items can be split into smaller containers to share with a friend. This is a great way to save more money but splitting the cost and product with a friend.
I hope this blog post have been helpful for you and you are even more excited to shop this sale. I will do an update on the items I end up purchasing. Let me know if there are any specific products you would like to see reviews on!
Thank you for stopping by and I will see you again soon!
