ULTA 21 Days of Beauty 2017 Recommendations

I know, I know!

It’s that time of the year again and we’re all excited about these Beauty Steals exclusive to Ulta Beauty starting March 19 thru April 8, 2017.

If you don’t already know, Ulta Beauty does a 21 Days of Beauty Sale during the Spring and Fall and they offer a great selection of highend skincare, bodycare, makeup, and makeup tools for one day only each day through the duration of the sale, with discounts up to 50% off the regular price. Also, Platinum members get exclusive offers during the sale too! Lastly, all Beauty Steals and Platinum Perk ship for free through April 8th.

It already started yesterday obviously, but I still wanted to share which ones I’m interested to get. If you click this link here, it’ll direct you to the full list of items included in the sale. I’m excited with all the blushes I’m going to try from this sale, blushes have become a new thing for me. I’ve never been too big on blushes before, but they are an interesting finishing touch to any makeup look, or an instant picker-upper for my bare faced days.

Anyway, without further ado here are my recommendations for this year’s 21 Days of Beauty.

March 19 –       Too Faced Love Flush Blush |  50% OFF \ $ 13 (Reg. $26)

I have always wanted to try these blushes but I had a growing collection of blushes I needed to give my attention to, so I put off getting these since they are permanent in the Too Faced line. Lucky for me, they’re 50% off during this sale so I grabbed 3 of these to sample (Baby Love, Your Love is King & Love Hangover) hopefully, they’re are gorgeous as the packaging.

March 20 –        Fiona Stiles Sheer Sculpting Palette | 50% OFF \ $14 (Reg. $28)

I would say this brand is relatively new to Ulta Beauty and there are a couple items from this brand I want to try, but I wouldn’t necessarily be brave enough to try them full price. Moreover, if you are a fan of this brand or if you are wanting to try this brand like myself, the brand is on sale and you can check out more of their products this month, 50% off.

LORAC Porefection Baked Perfecting Powder |  50% OFF \ $16.50 (Reg. $33)

These are very similar to the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural powders, so if you’re looking to try an alternative or if you just need a satin finish, smooth powder this might be a good one for you.

March 22 –        Laura Geller Filter Finish Setting Powder |  50% OFF \ $16 (Reg. $32)

These are satiny, sheer powders great for setting the undereye area, it has some color correcting properties and in some instances can be used as a very subtle highlighter.

March 23 –        Stila Smudgestick Waterproof Eyeliners | 50% OFF \ $11 (Reg. $22)

I’ve only tried the black smudgestick and it’s one of my favorite black eyeliners for the lashline, waterline or as an eyeshadow base. I refuse to try any other colored eyeliners lately apart from the Colourpop ones, but I’m interested to try the Turquoise one.

March 25 –        Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara | $10 \ Reg. $21

This is my favorite Tarte Mascara, I still have 2 tubes from last year’s 21 Days of Beauty sale, but I’m still getting a couple more, as a backup, because I typically go through a tube of mascara every 2-3 months.

March 26 –        Becca Backlight Priming Filter |  50% OFF \ $19 (Reg. $32)

I love this primer! I am almost out of the one I’m currently using so, it’s perfect timing that this is going on sale. It genuinely creates an illuminated complexion and smoothens out the skin so that the foundation can lay perfectly, very radiant and just healthy looking.

Platinum Perk: Urban Decay Afterglow Blush  |  50% OFF \ $ 13 (Reg. $26)

I am in love with these blush, I have the shade Score (a shimmery light pink) that I got just to try, so I’m excited to get the nude matte ones (Video & Indecent) and that really fun bright red (Bang) which, will be great for spring/summer.

March 29 –        Laura Geller Baked Blush N Brighten | 50% OFF \ $14 (Reg. $28)

If you have not tried Laura Geller blushes, where have you been? Get them! Just get them, you’ll thank me later! 😊 My favorites are Tropic Hues, Pink Buttercream & Pink Grapefruit

March 31 –        Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water  | 50% OFF \ $16 (Reg. $32)

This is a great product, I’m not entirely convinced that it prolongs the wear of my foundation, but it does a great job in making sure the foundation spreads smoothly and when used after makeup, it sets the powder down very nicely.

April 2 –            PLATINUM PERK: Lorac Unzipped Gold Palette |  50% OFF \ $21 (Reg. $42)

Lorac eyeshadows, what more can I say? – If you are a fan of the original unzipped palette, don’t pass up on this one. Warm, Golden tones perfect for the summer… and honestly, all-year round!

Shiseido Eyelash Curler | 50% OFF \ $10 (Reg. $20)

This is the only eyelash curler that has worked for me, if you are troubled with full eyelash curlers, perhaps this one should be on your list to try too. It doesn’t bend or break my lashes, it doesn’t leave a dent and the curl just stays on for a while.

April 4 –            Clarins Super Restorative Eye Concentrate | 50% OFF \ $42.50 (Reg. $85)

Yup, $85. But it works, especially for deep, fine lines and saggy eyebags. I recommend this for more mature skin

April 7 –            Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush & Highlighter | 50% OFF \ $14 (Reg. 28)

These are some of my favorite blushes, I have a lot of Tarte blushes in my collection and I highly recommend them to someone looking for a new blush to try, or to someone looking to expand their blush collection.  I have to mention that these blushes are drier in texture, but they blend very beautifully and last very long on the skin. I recommend: Exposed, Sensual, Blushing Bride, Risqué and I think I will be trying one of the highlighters myself, probably the shade: Exposed.

April 8 –            Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz | 50% OFF \ $ 10.50 (Reg. 21)

Last but not the least, the cult-favorite Brow Wiz will be closing the sale and it’ll be the perfect time to snag these puppies for a backup, or for those of you who’ve never tried this brow pencil, it’ll be the perfect time to sample these and find out why everyone loves the wiz! I have the shade soft brown, so I’m getting a couple of those and maybe try a different shade just because my hair is mostly back to black now.
