Last Sunday, Ulta kicked off their famous 21 Days of Beauty which chronicles three full weeks of daily sales on high end cosmetics and skincare. From March 15 – April 4, you’ll find extremely good deals on familiar makeup brands like Lorac, Too Faced and Urban Decay to extremely luxurious and highly reputed skincare brands like Algenist, Clairsonic, and Murad.
The opportunities will be both online and in-store, so if you hate shopping online or have a wad of cash burning a hole in your pocket, you’re in luck.
Last year, during a Ulta’s previous 21 Days of Beauty, I discovered Lights, Camera, Lashes by Tarte – my now favorite mascara and actually went the distance to learn how to do my brows in order to show you how cool this Anastasia Brow Kit was… This year, I’m crazy excited to show you some of the amazing things that are available for even more amazing prices.
So let’s get into the deals! In this post, I will layout the full calendar of sales during Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty, so bookmark it for the future! This all wraps up on April 4th, so between now & then, I would keep an eye on Ulta and check this post for your favorite brands.

Clearly, there are a ton of things I all of a sudden realize I need. Namely:
Urban Decay Primer Potions (March 21 – tomorrow!) Recently, I was at Ulta on a day when they were giving away sample packs of all the Urban Decay Primer Potions – did you know that there was more than one? There are four and three are available at Ulta. There’s the Original, which goes on as a sheer nude and does a decent job of keeping your shadow on, but it’s not my favorite. My favorite is Eden, a matte, brightening version of the original. I recommended the Anti-Aging Primer Potion for my mom!
Mario Badescu (March 28) This skincare brand has been on my radar once I started looking for, um, aging-related skincare products because there were a) affordable, b) bountiful, and c) extremely well-rated. They have luscious sounding products like cucumber lotion, aloe vera toner, buttermilk moisturizer, and chamomile night cream. And all of that crap is under $20. (Swoon.)
Tarte Maracuja Oil (April 2) I’ve been wanting to try this for weeks. Maracuja oil comes from the passionflower plant, and is used topically on skin for a number of reasons. It’s said to repair sun damage with its high levels of lycopene (found most commonly in tomatoes). There is also evidence that Maracuja oil’s scent can ease anxiety and assist sleep! There hasn’t been enough research for any actual claims to be founded in science yet, but I am super piqued.
I have some cool stuff to share with you during the 21 Days of Beauty, so clean out your makeup drawers, throw away your old crap because now is the time to replenish. Spring cleaning, the most fun way ever!
