The twice-annual Ulta 21 Days of Beauty is right around the corner, and I’ve had quite a few requests for my personal recommendations. I’ve gone through the list, and the only products I will recommend are ones I’ve actually tried myself OR someone I implicitly trust uses and loves the product. So, if your favorite item isn’t listed, it’s not because there’s something wrong with it-I just don’t know enough about it to give it my stamp of approval. If you see something is left out that you think the world needs to know about, PLEASE mention it in the comments! At up to 50% off, you can’t pass up these bargains!! There are 3 different categories: Hot Buys (they’re available every day during the event), Beauty Steals (those are only on sale for one specific day only) and the Buy-Three-Get-One-Free Travel Minis Sale (pretty self-explanatory).
If you’re a Platinum or Diamond Perks member, these Beauty Steals ship free through April 7th. It’s three weeks of beauty junkie heaven, so let’s take a look at my picks!!
These products go on sale for one day, and one day only, at 50% off the regular price. Some products are available in store and online, some are online only deals.
Lorac Pro Palette 3 $22 (online only)
Of all the Pro Palettes, this one is my favorite in terms of color selection. The longevity has some hits and misses, but at this price point it’s definitely worth grabbing!
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Anti-Aging Finishing Powder $14.50
I literally JUST finished my compact and put it aside for an empties video. With hot weather right around the corner, this should live in your purse for the next 6 months!
Origins Ginzing SPF 40 Energy-Boosting Tinted Moisturizer $19 (online only)
This is a cult classic for a reason! I’ve gone through numerous sample sizes of this-I think it’s time for me to pull the trigger!
Persona Identity Palette $16 (online only)
I have this palette and reach for it all the time. The colors were designed for brown eyes but great on everyone since they’re a warm-ish neutral selection.
Proactiv Emergency Blemish Relief $10
My youngest son uses this stuff and swears buy it. We’ve purchased quite a few tubes at the full price!
Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water $16
Everyone who uses this swears by it-not just as a primer, but to set and refresh makeup too. This one is on my personal shopping list!
It Brushes for Ulta Airbrush Smoothing Foundation Brush $11
It brushes are amazing. Get this. The end.
First Aid Beauty Love Your FAB Skin $22 (online)
This is a 5-piece set that includes their cleanser, radiance pads, moisturizer, lip therapy and intensive peel. If you’ve ever wanted to try the line, you can’t beat this price!

I have loved each and every Lancome mascara I’ve ever tried. Don’t pass up an opportunity to get one at 50% off!
Lorac Pro Contour Palette WITH Brush $20
If you don’t already have a contour palette, this is a great one to have-and works well on face and eyes!
Kopari Coconut Melt $14

March 30-Happy Birthday to Me!
Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Peel Pads $22.50
IF I could still use glycolic acid without breaking out, I would get this in a heartbeat. These pads also contain salicylic and lactic acids, along with a whole bunch of good-for-your-skin stuff.
Anastasia Brow Wiz $10.50
I’ll be honest-the spoolie always breaks off for me. But-at $10.50, it’s worth it-drugstore pencils cost the same and aren’t as good!
Butter London Glazen Eye Gloss $12
My friend Kristina Braly LOVES these! They go on as a cream and dry to a powder finish.
Mac Nude Lip Kit $19.75 (online only)
This kit includes a Prep+Prime lip base, Velvet Teddy lipstick and Boldly Bare lip liner.

Skyn Iceland Icelandic Relief Eye Cream $22.50 (online only)
I live for their under-eye patches. If this stuff works like that, then you need this in your skincare arsenal.
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion $11
I wouldn’t recommend this at full-price, but at 50% off it’s definitely worth it!
Estee Lauder Stay-In-Place Flawless Concealer $14 (online only)
This concealer is amazing. I’ve used it for the undereye and blemishes, and I go back to it all the time!
Dermalogica Daily Exfoliant $28.50
I have this and if you’re looking for a very gentle exfoliant, you’ll love this. Definitely safe for everyday use.
Mac Prep+Prime Fix Plus $13
YOU. MUST. GET. THIS. It’s a staple in everyone’s kit and at this price it’s a STEAL!
These are available every day of the sale, they’re not specific to a particular day. Not a lot jumped out at me from this list-but let me know if I’m missing something!
