I'm a big fan of ULTA, have you noticed? They have a great mix of price points, I love that they have such a huge selection of salon only hair care, and their SAs are helpful. I've even had them open drugstore makeup to check color matching for me (I don't know if this is allowed, but it has happened!) All of the stores I've been in have been in strip malls, with big, big plate glass windows. So, a ton of natural light! (Unlike my other favorite beauty store, you know the one I mean, where I feel like I need to bring a huge flashlight to find what I'm looking for)
Twice a year ULTA has their 21 Days of Beauty Event, and I love it! They have some amazing deals and exclusive products pop up during the event as well. I always scour the ad for the deals I'm most interested in. Guess what? My ad arrived on Friday. Here's what I'm looking at picking up, and I'm really excited because a few of these are items I need to stock up on!
Here are the days that I'm adding to my calendar:
March 16Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner, Buy One Get One Free
Today, I've already stocked up! I like Damsel (a dark chocolate brown) and Stingray (black) for every day. It is the perfect smudging liner that stays put all day long. I bought 3 Damsel and 1 Stingray while running errands this morning.
March 19Butter London Nail Lacquer & Treatments $9 each
This is a big day! This is the one that many of my friends wait for during the 21 Days of Beauty and go crazy! I am a fan of Butter London too, and I like to stock up on new, fun colors. My picks this year: Cake Hole (great swatch pics here), Giddy Kipper (great pics over at Vampy Varnish), and Poole (great pics over at Beauty Junkies Unite)
March 20It Cosmetics Your Brows But Better Brow Power Skinny Pencil $12
I've lost track of how many times I've mentioned this brow pencil on the blog! It's my regular go-to brow pencil. It's the perfect ashy-brown, so it works for most blondes, all brunettes and those with black hair. It may (or may not) work for redheads. It depends on how red you are. I love that it is very skinny, so it always feels sharp. It takes me about 15 seconds to do my brows and I'm done! This is 50% off. I might have 6 of these sitting in my on-line shopping cart, just waiting for March 20....
Clarisonic Mia 1 Facial Sonic Cleansing $79
If you've been thinking about buying a Clarisonic, here's your chance! Mia 1 is one of their more "basic" models, and it uses the same brushes as the rest. I think it's a little different based upon size and timing features (which honestly, I ignore anyways). I really do think that the sonic feature is important over a rotating action for your deep cleaning brush, just based upon many discussions with dermatologists. This is an amazing price, snatch one up while you can!
If you've been thinking about trying out StriVectin (or maybe you use it already but need some fresh travel sizes), this kit is $15 off today! If you're on the fence, here's my review of their latest StriVectin SD Advanced Skincare.
I'm a sucker for neutral eye shadow palettes. This one came out as a Cyber Monday exclusive on ULTA.com, and while it's on their site I haven't ever seen it in stock (maybe I just have bad luck?) There are great swatches over at Beauty Junkies Unite.
This is one of my favorite blushes! I know the original price is a bit steep for most people, but this blush lasts forever. Forever and ever. It has 3 pretty shades in each that can be worn alone or blended. All have just the right amount of shimmer. I have Peach Beach and Something About Berry and use them a lot!

I keep hearing how amazing this cream is for those with rosacea and redness, and I really want to try it out! $32 seems a bit high for something I might only use once or twice and I'm not sure if my skin will tolerate it at all. So, 50% off is when I'll buy it!
