My Top Picks: Ulta 21 Days of Beauty

March 17, 2018

Ah, one of my favorite times of year...the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty sale. You other beauty junkies out there know that makeup hardly ever goes on sale, so when this comes around I stock up!! Not only do I use this sale to stock my own personal collection, but I will usually snag a few things to keep on hand as gifts for others (think birthdays, graduations, etc.).

 

The sale this year is SO GOOD y’all. They have quite a few of my holy grail products for HALF OFF! 

 

Let me just say that one more time for the people in the back... 

 

AMAZING MAKEUP PRODUCTS FOR HALF OFF. 

 

This is not a drill, babes. Get those cell phones ready so you can set alerts in your calendar! Many of these products go quickly so if at all possible try to get to the store when they open. They do have a two per customer limit, but I just recruit my boyfriend to tag along. 💁🏻‍♀️

 

SUNDAY, MARCH 18TH:

Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara 

$10 (normally $23) 

This is one of my favorite top layer mascaras. As you know, I’m pretty extra with my mascara and layer like 3 different ones on top of each other. This is my current favorite to use as my final step!

 

MONDAY, MARCH 19TH:

Benefit Cosmetics 24-Hour Brow Setter 

$12 (normally $24) 

This is a great alternative to the Anastasia brow gel. If you have been wanting to try it but are not a fan of the price tag, for sure pick this guy up! 

 

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 21ST:

Proactiv Emergency Blemish Relief 

$10 (normally $20) 

I swear by this stuff. It honestly makes all my blemishes disappear overnight.

 

SATURDAY, MARCH 24TH:

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner 

$11 (normally $22) 

MY HOLY GRAIL LINER. I am 100% making my boyfriend AND my mom each go get two for me. #blessed

 

MONDAY, MARCH 26TH:

BECCA Backlight Priming Filter & First Light Priming Filter 

$19 (normally $38) 

If you do not currently own a high end makeup primer, absolutely pick this up. I keep these in my rotation for when I’m looking for a more dewey or fresh-faced look. I prefer the purple one. 

 

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28TH:

Estée Lauder Travel-Size Advanced Night Repair 

$8 (normally $16) 

If you haven’t tried this product yet, I HIGHLY recommend it. It is one of my favorite skin care products! If my skin is ever being troublesome or I just want to make sure it looks luminous the next day, I put this on before bed and voila! Gorgeous skin. 

 

THURSDAY, MARCH 29TH:

Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Super-Curling & Lifting Mascara 

$12 (normally $24) 

This is another mascara I keep in my rotation. I use it mainly as a layering mascara after my base coat. 

 

FRIDAY, MARCH 30TH:

Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Lipstick 

$10.50 (normally $21) 

Next to the Stila Stay All Day, this is my second favorite matte liquid lip formula! Plus, I’m honestly just a sucker for Too Faced’s packaging. Like GOD could it be any cuter?! 

 

SATURDAY, MARCH 31ST:

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Skinny Brow Pencil 

$10.50 (normally $21) 

If you do not currently own this, you need it. For sure put this one in the calendar. 

 

Mario Badescu 

Entire Line 25% Off 

Pick up some of their facial sprays, my favorite is the aloe/cucumber/green tea one! It seriously smells AMAZE and feels so refreshing on your skin, which is perfect for the summer! But honestly every Mario Badescu product I’ve tried has been great so if you need new skincare, might as well snag it on sale! 

 

SUNDAY, APRIL 1ST:

BareMinerals Foundation Primers 

$12.50-15 (normally $25-30) 

One of my favorite primer formulas! They are so velvety smooth and feel so luxurious on your skin. My favorite is the original, but they also make a great oil control one! 

 

THURSDAY, APRIL 5TH:

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion 

$10-12 (normally $20-24) 

The original formula is my favorite. You will only need one of these, the TINIEST amount goes such a long way so one tube lasts forever. 

 

FRIDAY, APRIL 6TH:

Tarte Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint, Creamy Matte Lip Paint, Glossy Lip Paint, & Lip Crayons

$10 each (normally $18-20 each)

I really like the formula of the matte lip paint so if you are in the mood for some more lipstick, these are great options!

 

SATURDAY, APRIL 7TH:

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

$11.50 (normally $23)

One of my other Holy Grail products! This is my favorite base coat mascara. I will definitely be stocking up on this, and you should, too! 

 

DEALS FOR THE ENTIRE 21 DAYS:

 

Buy 3 Get 1 Free Mix & Match Minis

I have a love-hate relationship with minis. I love them because it is a great way to try a new product without committing to the full-size (and the price tag that comes with it), and they are also great if you travel frequently like I do. BUT. If you do the math on these, the price ends up being soo much more expensive per ounce than just getting the full size. When you throw the "get one free" in the mix though, it makes it a little better. 

 

Tarte Ready, Set, Radiant Skin Mist

$15 (normally $25)

So I have not actually tried this product before, but I am a fan of Tarte and anything with the word "radiant" (yes, please) so for $10 off, I will definitely give this guy a try!

 

Laura Geller New York Spackle Collection

$13-19 (normally $23-32)

If you ever do makeup for others, definitely get a couple of the original Spackle primers. This is my go-to primer for mature skin, it fills in fine lines really well!
