Ulta 21 Days of Beauty, Last Week of Sales!

Today, there is a major steal at Ulta thanks to the 21 Days of Beauty Sale. (This is the tail end of week two, here is week one!) Today only, you can get the gorgeous Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue eye and cheek palette for only $19.50! And that’s just one of the things on 50% off sale today.

Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eyeshadow and Cheek Palette at Ulta

Stila Perfect Hue, Perfect Me Palette

This palette is a permanent part of the collection, so if you’re in love but payday isn’t until next Friday, you can still find other ways to get it into your hot little hands. Stila has divided these palettes by skin tone: Fair/Light, Light/Medium, Medium/Tan, and Tan/Deep. The two bottom colors are blush shades, the top left corner is your lid base, and the quad in the upper right is all highlights and lowlights. They look really beautiful – all of the orange in the Tan/Deep palette are making me wish I weren’t translucent white, but the liner shade in the Fair/Light palette looks totally luscious. And $19.50 instead of $39? – awesome!

Buxom Lash Mascara

This deal is only around for today! If it isn’t for you, don’t worry – there’s more! In fact, tomorrow you can pick up the very popular Buxom Lash Mascara for 50% off which makes it only $10.

The last three days of the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty sale are a triple whammie for beauty & skincare products:

Thursday, September 22

Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Eye Primer$21 $10

I’ve been using the same tube of Smashbox 24 Hour eye primer for over a year. Granted, I keep it for special occasions for some reason – I should stop that. It’s really nice and thick, sticky enough for loose pigments or glitter, and really does last all day. In fact, depending on what kind of shadows you use it with, it can be kind of a beast to get off.

DERMAdoctor Kakadu C Peel Pads DERMAdoctor Kakadu C Peel Pads, $78 $39

“Kakadu” is a type of plum that’s very rich in Vitamin C. These are little, individually wrapped pads that contain an extracting of the Kakadu plum as well as tons of AHA and BHA to help renew your skin and slough off any deadness. These are supercharged, but those with sensitive skin shouldn’t worry – it’s hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, and non-irritating.

eyeshadow palette sale ulta makeup Cargo The Essentials Eyeshadow Palette, $34 $17

Palette alert! I am an eyeshadow palette lover, and it’s really hard for me to resist them when they’re on sale. This palette is heavy on the cool blues, peach and taupe shades which is really pretty and definitely wearable.

The palette also comes with a dual-ended eyeshadow brush, and a black pencil liner.

Friday, September 23

 Too Faced La Matte Lipsticks Too Faced La Matte Color Drenched Lipstick, $22 $11

After this whole liquid lipstick tornado picked up me up threw me around, I’m kind of missing my old NYX Matte tubes. Matte lipstick is so beautiful when it isn’t dried liquid, and $11 for these highly rated Too Faced lippies is a crazy good deal.

Benefit They're Real Eyeliner Benefit They’re Real! Push Up Liner, $24 $12

This eyeliner is not for the faint of heart. I’ve tried out a sample of this gel-liquid hybrid and it’s the real deal. The formula is thick, matte, and stays put but it can be kind of a bear to apply if you don’t have perfectly smooth eyelids. That being said, the old “pull at the temple to stretch the eyelid” trick works just fine, though, and when you see this stuff on your eye you are going to fall in love with how deep and matte it is. Just make sure you come armed with patience.

Saturday, September 24

tarte lights camera action Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara, $21 $10

I’m gonna be honest with you – if there’s a $10 mascara that you pick up from Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty sale, skip the Buxom and pick this up. It’s been my holy grail mascara for a few years and, while I’m onto new and exciting horizons, I always have a backup tube. I can’t tell you how excited I am that this year’s backup tube is going to be only $10.

Philosophy Miracle Worker Trial Sample Kit All Philosophy Miracle Worker products are 25% off!

Even as young as 24, I had friends who worked in high end cosmetics that were obsessed with this line of skincare from Philosophy.

Ulta offers 20 products from the Miracle Worker line, everything from foundation sticks to Retinoid pads!

Lipstick Queen Jean Queen Lipstick Queen Jean Queen, $22 $11

This is kind of a cool beauty nerd thing: Lipstick Queen founder Poppy King helped to formulate this lipstick to be the perfect shade to wear with blue jeans and denim. The specific shade of red was used because it offsets the cool blues in denim and in turn “lights up” your whole face! My guess is that it highlights the warm tones in your face because it’s kind of a cooler, terracotta red… Probably makes your teeth look super-white. I really want to try it out!

After that, the show’s over! Lights out! Come back next year when Ulta will once again release another 21 Days of Beauty upon us. Which day will you throw down some meager cash amount for high end beauty? My favorite is Thursday, September 22… But I want that Lipstick Queen shade, too! #AdultDecisions
