The Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Steals Events & Free Gifts is March 15th-April 4th, 2015 and I decided to look through the deals and let you know what I thought was worth checking out!
LORAC Champagne Dreams Palette
This is a great palette of neutral shades that could work day or night and would be great for someone who is just getting into makeup and doesn’t know what kind of eyeshadow to wear. It’s the Ulta Beauty Steal for 3/29/15, but it’s already on the website for $15 right now so I’m thinking you might not have to wait… You can also get a free deluxe sample of the LORAC Porefection Mattifying Face Primer with any $25 Lorac purchase between 3/15/15-4/4/15. Their Lorac PRO Mascara is also on sale right now for $11.50 so boom there’s your $25 purchase right there!
Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye & Face Gels
I haven’t tried these yet, but I keep seeing them everywhere and they just look so fun. They’re patches you put under your eyes and they’re supposed to de-puff, tone, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They will be 35% off online only on Wednesday March 18th which brings them down to $19.50
Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel
If you’ve had your eye on this stuff for a while, now is the time to buy (or Monday 3/30/15 is the time to buy) the Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel because it is 50% off making it now a somewhat reasonable price at $11. I prefer the colored version which I got at the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Steals event last year because the clear one makes my eyebrows itchy which causes me to rub off any product and is counterproductive. Even after that review I totally understand if you want to get it anyway so be sure to save yourself some money while doing so! You also get a free full size ABH Pro Pencil in Base 1 with any $30 Anastasia Beverly Hills purchase from 3/15/15-4/4/15. I actually heard that the NYX Control Freak Eyebrow Gel is just as good and it’s both $5.99 and BOGO 50% off.
IT Cosmetics Your Brows But Better Brow Power Skinny Pencil
This magical pencil is supposed to be universally colored (and able to cover grey hairs) and formulated to best mimic the look of real brow hair with it’s ultra fine tip. It’s nice that it twists up and has a spooly built in. I have heard good things about it, but haven’t tried it myself. On Friday March 20th it will be 50% off bringing the price down to $12. Ulta’s also offering a free deluxe size Brow Power with any $30 IT Cosmetics purchase from 3/15/15-4/4/15.
Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush
The packaging alone makes me want to buy this blush and the other selling point is that I saw it on Girl Get Glamorous’ blush post and I trust everything that G3 recommends. On Wednesday April 1st it will be 50% off making it “only” $15 and way more justifiable as a purchase. You also can get a free deluxe size Better Than Sex Mascara, Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner, and Shadow Insurance with any $35 Too Faced Purchase between 3/15/15-4/4/15 which is a damn good gift with purchase.
There’s also plenty of in-store events including a free brow wax with any $50 Benefit service and/or product purchase on 3/21 and 4/4. That is a pretty expensive “free” brow wax especially since I find Benefit products to be extremely disappointing 95% of the time, but hey if you’re in need of some Benefit Hula bronzer (which is decent) or want to try the new Benefit Puff Off! eye cream which is getting recommended on YouTube (but doesn’t have great reviews on ulta.com) and an eyebrow wax, it could work out in your favor.
While you’re shopping at Ulta you might want to check out these things that are not part of the 21 Days of Beauty Sale:
BECCA Best of BECCA Collection
Which includes a Mini Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Rose Gold, Shimmering Skin Perfector Spotlight Wand in Opal, Beach Tint in Guava, and Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle in Watermelon/Moonstone all for $34.50. There’s also a free deluxe sample of BECCA Ever-Matte Primer with any $30 Becca purchase from 3/15/15-4/4/15. Everyone has raved about the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector and that highlighter alone is $38 and who the hell uses up an entire highlighter?? Plus 2 of the products are full size! That’s what makes this a good deal in my eyes. I’d say this set will most likely look best on those with tanned skin. The BECCA Best of Becca Collection is an Ulta exclusive and limited edition.
In the Current Ad- My favorite drugstore falsies Ardell lashes are BOGO 50% off. The Ardell Natural Lash – Black 120 are only $3.99 and that pair looks great day or night. They’re also my friend Rachel’s favorite. I’d also recommend the Ardell Twin Pack Lash 105 for beginners because they have a thin band, are natural looking, and they come with 2 identical pairs so you have a backup in case you mess one up. Be sure to check out my post on False Lashes for Beginners.
Another drugstore brand that’s BOGO 50% off is Maybelline and I have been LOVING the Maybelline Volum’Express The Rocket Mascara it is excellent! For the GO in your BOGO 50% off I’ve also been loving the Maybelline Fit Me concealer in Fair which I use under my eyes and it gives great coverage.
As far as Maybelline’s newer products I’ve heard great things about the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation ($7.99) which is for normal to oily skin and is said to give an ultimate natural (yet flawless) skin finish and the Maybelline FaceStudio Master Conceal concealer is for both imperfections/blemishes and dark circles and is “ultra-resistant full coverage” for “maximum conceal” and again has been getting some good feedback by the YouTube Beauty Gurus.
The final deal you should know about is another free gift- It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In 2oz. which is free with any $20 haircare purchase. That is a $12 value people!
If you’re going to buy this stuff online you should absolutely get 4% cash back at Ulta by using Ebates. I know stuff like that sounds like a scam, but I promise you it is very easy to sign up and they PayPal you the cash which you can then spend on more makeup! I’ve only made a few purchases since getting Ebates and I’ve already made $6.53 cash back. And duh never go to Ulta without your $3.50 off any $10 purchase coupon. Happy shopping!
