A couple of days ago I found a cute inspirational quote saying, “You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy makeup, which is kind of the same thing.” I am not a shopaholic but I truly support this statement. All those cute bottles with skincare products, colorful eye shadow palettes, red lipsticks, and cool brushes make me super happy every single day. What I love even more than putting my makeup looks together is scoring great makeup deals online.
One of the sales that I wait for holding my breath is Ulta Beauty’s 21 Days of Beauty sale event that started on September 3rd and runs until September 23rd. If you are not familiar with the 21 Days of Beauty concept, it is a marathon of amazing deals on top rated makeup and beauty products. Each day during the course of 21 days sale, you can buy a product of the day at a very low (I mean THE lowest) price you can find online. The majority of the beauty steals available during 21 Days of Beauty event are not random drugstore picks but rather highly rated hi-end products.
I collaborated with MavenX and Ulta Beauty to share with you my favorite picks from the upcoming sale. Make sure to stop by on the blog next week as I’ll be posting a tutorial featuring some of the products that will go on sale during the 21 Days of Beauty event.
Sept 7 – TOO FACED Sketch Marker Liquid Eyeliner (sale $10; reg $20)
That’s one of the best liquid eyeliners in my collection that I would compare to Kat Von D ones. The applicator is super thin and durable and it lasts forever. It might not be the only eyeliner in my collection, but the latest one by the brand that I purchased a few months ago is still going strong. If you are an eyeliner look lover, definitely consider scoring this deal!
Sept 8 – URBAN DECAY Naked Flushed (sale $17; reg $34)
If you appreciate travel-friendly products, this deal is for you as you are getting three products in one compact palette. Personally, I’m obsessed with the shade of the blush from this palette as it works with so many different eye looks. The quality and color selection of the bronzer and highlighter is very impressive too as these are your typical Urban Decay-style high-quality products.
Sept 8 – PERRICONE MD Select Cold Plasma (sale $55-81; reg $110-162)
I’ve been obsessed with the Cold Plasma line for a long time and I can’t believe it actually goes on sale! If you remember my last year’s post on the best products of 2016, the Cold Plasma Moisturizer by Perricone MD was named the best anti-aging cream of the year. In other words, if you have aging or mature skin (basically, if you are over 30 years old), I highly recommend checking out this line.
Sept 9 – BENEFIT COSMETICS Roller Lash Mascara (sale $12; reg $24)
This mascara is one of the most hyped ones on the internet and it totally deserves such status. If your major concerns are separating and lengthening lashes, this mascara is definitely worth checking out. I also love applying it on the lower lashes only when I’m wearing falsies as the applicator on this product is super handy to use.
Sept 12 – STILA MATTE’ificent Lipstick (sale $11; reg $22)
I have almost every shade from this line and I’m extremely satisfied with how these lipsticks feel on my lips. These products feature matte finish, but they do not look cakey or too dry on your lips. The color selection is great and if you are looking for a good everyday lipstick.
Sept 13 – DERMABLEND Loose Setting Powder (sale $13.50; reg $27)
If you are into baking (makeup-wise, of course!) this is a great product to consider. I would compare the quality of this translucent powder to many more expensive brands. Especially, if you purchase it during the 21 Days of Beauty event which brings this product to the drugstore price level.
Sept 14 – URBAN DECAY Naked Skin Color (sale $14.50; reg $29)
If you have skin discoloration concerns such as dark spots, under eye dark circles, and around nose redness, consider these color-correcting products. These are extremely easy to use as they come in your typical concealer-style package. Also, if you are not familiar with the technique, Ulta Beauty’s sale is a perfect opportunity to experiment with color correcting as during the sale event these Urban Decay products are much more affordable.
Sept 15 – CLARISONIC Single Cleansing Brush Heads (buy one get one free)
If you follow this blog for awhile, you know that I use Clarisonic daily to exfoliate my skin and make it more smooth. I was thrilled to know that Clarisonic brushes are going on sale during this season’s 21 Days of Beauty event as it’s always a great idea to upgrade your collection with new Clarisonic brush heads. If you already own a Clarisonic device, I recommend trying their latest blending brush that you could use to apply creamy makeup products.
Sept 22 – TARTE Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara (sale $10; reg $20)
I’ve always been Camera.Lights.Lashes fan, but ever since I tried this mascara I’m totally addicted to it. While the formulas of both mascaras as volumizing and lengthening, I love the applicator on this mascara more. Traditionally, the last few seasons of the 21 Days of Beauty I was stocking up on the Camera.Lights.Lashes, and I’m definitely will be purchasing at least few of these new mascaras for my makeup kit.
Sept 22 – DERMALOGICA Daily Superfoliant (sale $9; reg $18)
I tested so many skin exfoliants but I always come back to this one as you could really see the difference after using this product. The initial consistency of this peel, while it’s in the package, is powder, but in combination with water, it transforms into bubbly exfoliating cleanser which dramatically improves your skin smoothness on a daily basis. Even though I have one unopened full size of this product on hand, I’ll be stocking by on it anyway as the deal is too good to miss.
