I did just a little shopping in the recent Ulta 21 Days of Beauty. I waited towards the end to shop because I was trying to be good and the items I most wanted were at the end of the sale!
I went to the store at the beginning of April and picked out a few things, then made an online order on the last day of the sale. Here’s what I got:
The day I went in was just for the Urban Decay Primer Potion. I’ve needed an eye primer and I realized that I’ve never had a full tube of this with the wand, just samples sizes! I believe this was $12 on sale.
My pores get larger during allergy season, so I asked a girl who worked at Ulta for a drugstore primer that helps with enlarged pores. She suggested the NYX Pore Filler. And since NYX was BOGO half off, I also picked up the Total Control Drop Foundation.
I am really liking the primer. I just use it on the areas that have large pores and it does help fill them. I’m still trying to figure out how to best apply the foundation. If you have any tips, let me know!
On the last day of the sale, I placed an online order because I really wanted to try the Mac Fix+ setting spray. I’ve heard so much about it and am excited to try it. It was on sale for $13, a great price!
I’ve only tried samples of the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. This was $11.50 on sale. I really like the full size. The tube is really luxe.
And I received a deluxe sample of the Clinique Deluxe Liquid Facial Soap in Mild. I might take this on vacation, or try it later.
This last product was not on sale, but I have been wanting it!
This is the Too Faced Life’s A Festival Eye Shadow Palette. Ulta describes it as a “a duo-chrome eye shadow palette that contains ethereal pigments that reflect different colors depending on how light hits them and is infused with rose quartz for added love energy. Matte & pearl shadows are highly pigmented and compliment duo-chrome tones. Large center half-moon pan is a highlighter with an iridescent finish that can be used on the eyes, face, and body, plus there’s a magical citrus scent for limitless festival vibes.”
Here’s just a quick swatch of a few of the shades:
So pretty! Real talk here — I’m not planning to go to a festival and I’m going to be 50 in a couple of months — but, I really love duo-chrome eye shadows! This just makes me so happy and ready for the warmer months! Plus it smells good. The Ulta website said it’s citrus-scented, but I think it smells like Smarties candies! I’m going to play with this and do a full review soon.
I usually don’t get beauty products for my birthday, so I’m starting to purchase things for myself since it’s a HUGE birthday year!
Did you purchase anything at the Ulta 21 Days sale? Also, make sure you check out their current sale, the Spring Haul. Some of the products are up to 50% off. I placed an order today. And on Sunday the deals will switch for the next week. And I’ll probably be shopping again. Lol!
