Ulta 21 Days of beauty

Ulta 21 Days of beauty

Alright so I probably should have done this sooner but…better late than never right?! Ulta is having their 21 Days of Beauty event! Dreams come true right? All those expensive products that hurt your heart a little bit when you pay for them are on sale. So I have thrown together a list of what works for me and what I’m gonna throw in my shopping bag.


Tuesday - 9/11

LANCÔME Cils Booster XL Vitamin Infused-Mascara Primer – If you have baby stick non-existant eyelashes like me, you need all the help you can get. Out of all the eyelash primers that I have tried, this is the one that truly makes a difference…and it’s 50% off!


Wednesday - 9/12

ST TROPEZ Gradual Tan Tinted Everyday Body Lotion -  St Tropez might be one of the most well marketed, highly reviewed tanning brands…it’s also quite expensive for this girls pocketbook. At 50% off, this puts it at the same price as it’s dupe brand St. Moriz and $2 more than the Jergens Natural Glow Pump. If you want to try it out, this would be the day to grab it.


Thursday - 9/13

CLARISONIC Cleansing Brush – It’s that time of year!! You are supposed to change out your brush head every three months so why not just stock up now while they are half off?! I still have 2 left over from the last sale.


SMASHBOX Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Primer – Now I know that I am a weirdo who does not like this primer (it makes my makeup slide around on my face) BUT I know a lot of people who looooove this. Once again, 50% off.


Friday - 9/14

DERMALOGICA Special Cleansing Gel – ok, so I have never actually used this but I really want to try it! After my 30 days of Drunk Elephant, I have been trying to find dupes for some of their products because the price tag on those…ouch. I have been loving gel cleansers since I first started getting into skincare a couple years ago! I’ll have to update you on how this one goes.


DOSE OF COLORS Matte Liquid Lipstick – While the rest of the world was freaking out over the Kylie Jenner liquid lipsticks, I was creating a collection of these. I have…10 different shades? Either way, the collection is extensive and now they are only $9. The shade ‘Brick’ is the only dark colored liquid lip that does fade towards the inside of my mouth. The color I am wearing in the photo is Stone.


Saturday - 9/15

TARTE Lights, Camera Lashes™ 4-in-1 Mascara and Tarteist™ Lash Paint Mascara – IMO, the ‘Lights, Camera Lashes’ mascara gives very similar effects as the L’Oreal Lash Paradise, and at 50% it’s even cheaper!


Sunday - 9/16

I have to be honest, none of the products this day wow me…sooo a great day to save those $$$


Monday - 9/17

FIRST AID BEAUTY Face Cleanser – The entire time I was living in China, I used the FAB cleanser and moisturizer. This combination kept my skin looking great no matter what the weather was doing there! (pollution, humidity, freezing rain that wants to be snow but couldn’t quite get there) It’s only $10 so a great steal if you are looking to slowly branch away from drug store brands and looking at something introductory to high end.


Tuesday - 9/18

Again, another day where nothing seems to be calling my name…maybe week 3 of the sale just isn’t for me.


Wednesday - 9/19

On this day, they are doing 50% “Discover Skincare Brands.” A bunch of brands are mentioned so I suggest just taking a quick peak over there and see if anything looks intriguing.


Thursday - 9/20

ORIGINS Morning Must-Haves – I literally just saw this kit at Marshall’s and thought about picking it up but then I remembered this sale was happening and it’s gonna be cheaper! $11 gives you a great introduction to some of Origins more well known products (and is also really great to throw in your bag while traveling).

Friday - 9/21

CLINIQUE Moisture Surge 72 Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator 1oz – For under $10, can you really beat this? It’s a product that goes great under your makeup when you are feeling a bit dry in the morning but also can be used at night.

Saturday - 9/22

URBAN DECAY All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray – How do we get our makeup to last all day in the Florida sun? This. Right. Here. For me, it’s more of an “All Dayer” because I never go out at night.


They are doing multiple week long sales as well, covering everything from makeup to skincare, haircare and more! Don’t just look at the 21 days of beauty deals.
