Annual Ulta Sale…Perfect for Post-Harvey Stock Up and to Brighten Your Day!


Chelsi here today and for those of us that were affected by Hurricane Harvey, getting back to “normal” is going to be a long process.  This unprecedented event has taken its toll on all of us – from Corpus Christi to Houston to Beaumont – physically, mentally and emotionally.

It seems odd to talk about beauty but did you know that during times of distress, beauty sales actually go up?  When you are feeling down, a small pick me up comes in many forms, often times in a new tube of lipstick, a new hair product or something that comforts your skin.

So if you are looking for a beauty pick me up, the perfect place to go right now is Ulta where they are hosting their mega-sale, 21 Days of Beauty.  Every day from now until September 23rd, there is a new deal on the hottest brands of color cosmetics and skincare featuring prices up to 50%!  This sale happens twice a year and I always look forward to it because I stock up on my tried and true products plus take advantage of the low prices to try new things as well.  I picked a few of my favorite deals so you can mark these in your day planner now!

Ulta 21 Days of Beauty


Sept. 9thCover FX Perfect Setting Powder

This is an amazing powder that blurs imperfections, sets makeup for all day wear, and was specially formulated without talc so it is never chalky.  Available in 2 shades, this will be 50% off this day so a great time to stock up at $17.50.

Sept. 13thSmashbox X-Rated Mascara

This mascara is very versatile.  With one swipe you get soft, natural looking lashes but with each additional swipe, you build intensity and drama.  This will retail for $10, which beats most drug store prices.  A great mascara to try!

Sept. 17thPhilosophy Time in a Bottle Serum and Urban Decay Longwear Liquid Eyeliner

This is a big day IMO!  First, the Philosophy Time in a Bottle Serum, retailing for $38 on this day.  It is chock full on good things – Vitamin C8, Himalayan red rice, a patented antioxidant complex, and so much more – that has proven to show improvement in fine lines, improve firmness, and boost your skin’s radiance.

I have a slight addiction to liquid liners.  I also am the rare person who finds liquid liners easy to apply, but give me a pencil and I couldn’t draw a straight line if you paid me!  The Urban Decay Razor Sharp Water-Resistant Longwear Liquid Liner has a brush so thin, it makes it almost impossible to mess up and considering I live in 100% humidity most of the year, the water-resistant factor makes it smudge proof. This will be $11 and is also this day’s Platinum Perk, which means it will ship free.

Sept. 20thMAC Matte Lipstick in Russian Red

Let me get this straight…on this day, I can get one of the best-selling lipsticks of all time at half the cost? Yes, please!  Normally, $17.50, you can get this and one other shade for only $8.75.

There are some fantastic deals and steals to be had this month.  Note that Ulta does keep it to a 2 per item limit, but at these prices, you can stock up, try new things, even donate some of these great items to a displaced family that you know.  Check out the sale and comment below and let us know your favorites.
